To celebrate the occasion, we're providing you with some factoids from the show's production, so let's see what you know!
|The Fantastic Four, Falcon and H.E.R.B.I.E. in "The Super Hero Squad Show"|
Many familiar names and faces were included in the pilot, from classic Jack Kirby monsters such as Fin Fang Foom, to the legendary Stan Lee, who played Mayor of all super heroes in the series. Voice actor Tom Kenny even improvised some of his Iron Man dialogue, throwing in a “What the Don Heck?” at times--Heck is the co-creator of Iron Man.
Did You Know? Kenny's versatility enabled him to voice five Marvel characters in the first season, including Iron Man, Captain America, M.O.D.O.K., Colossus and Juggernaut.

Did You Know? The Fantastic Four played a larger role in Episode 112, “If This Be My Thanos.” Tara Strong ("Fairly Oddparents" and "Ben 10"), voice of Invisible Woman, was asked to give H.E.R.B.I.E. her best shot.
Strong's performance was so impressive that Marvel CCO Joe Quesada fell in love with her character and asked that H.E.R.B.I.E. join the regular cast in Season Two!
|The Wasp and Falcon from "The Super Hero Squad Show"|
During Episode 123, "Wrath of the Red Skull," Schauer hand draws a true Jack Kirby-style montage, inspired by Kirby's run on Captain America.
Did You Know? In Episode 103, "Hulk Talk Smack," we were fortunate enough to have Jennifer Morrison ("House" and "Once Upon A Time") show off her vocal talents as Wasp.
Morrison even helped us cast the villain she battles against, Screaming Mimi. We needed someone who could legitimately pull off Screaming Mimi’s scream; thus Morrison’s sister, Julia, came into the picture. She was trained as an opera singer and could do the scream herself, so the sisters had a blast playing off one another in the booth.
Remember to catch "The Super Hero Squad Show" every weekday at 4 p.m. ET beginning January 30 on The Hub Television network!
