Wow the excitement is killing me! In our house were counting down the days till the new Marvel Super Hero Squad cartoon lands in the U.K.
Not content with playing the new Super Hero Squad game on his PSP for all hours, then playing with the action figures, reading the books before bed and now were going to have to watch the TV show too.
I don’t really mind watching though, in fact I’m quite looking forward to it. We have watched a few clips of episodes on the Marvel website and it looks really good, full of bad puns and wise cracks (which is the things my son loves most about comics).
Featuring all your favorite hero’s and villains like Doctor Doom, M.O.D.O.K, Ironman, Silver Surfer, Hulk (who my son thought was hilarious!) and many more. My son nearly wet himself when he saw Fin Fang Foom in the opening credits, we’ll have to see what he’s like when he finally turns up in an episode. I’ve bought him the Fin Fang Foom Super Hero Squad Figure for Christmas, as he’s his favourite I can’t wait to see his face when he opens him up.

There is a fairly loose plot to keep the whole thing tied together which involves the squad protecting Super Hero City from VillianVille and keeping Doctor Doom from collecting all the pieces of the infinity sword, but basically it’s just lots of good old comic book fighting and humour. Oh and lots of shouting of “Hero up!” which is the catchphrase used by Ironman, when he gets a team together to fight the bad guys.
It’s also got a great theme tune, which is essential in my book if you want to get me interested. Sounds alot like the Shaggy and Scooby Doo get a clue theme if you ask me, but it does the trick.
It’s starting Monday 1st November on NickToons at 07:00, so set your Sky+ now in preparation and get prepared to have the theme tune going round your head all day in no time. Hero up!
