The premise is that the Hulk (now at normal intelligence levels... long story) has formed a team of Gamma-Mutates to combat major threats. Thing is, there's already a team for that. They're called "the Avengers," you may have heard of them. The show itself has the framing device of being Rick Jones' (Hulk's buddy/sidekick) web show, showing that the Hulk's actually a good guy. This is entirely pointless and only exists to give the team reasons to talk to the camera in reality-show-type cutaways. The show is (ostensibly) shot entirely by Rick's floating cameras, but that's impossible, judging from some of the angles and footage we get. Meh, I stopped caring.
Now let's go over the individual characters:
|Clockwise from upper left: A-Bomb, Red Hulk, She-Hulk, Skaar Center: Hulk|
Red Hulk- Yeah, talk about Continuity Lockout! The show acts like everybody in the audience knows exactly who he is. (Hulk's former enemy, General Ross, now mutated into the thing he hates most: a Hulk. But he keeps his old gung-ho military personality.)
Rick Jones/A-Bomb- I've said it before, I'll say it again. Bruce Banner became the Hulk after saving Rick Jones from a gamma bomb. So... if Rick Jones becomes a Hulk himself, doesn't that negate Bruce Banner's original sacrifice?
Skaar- A Hulk-like teenage gladiator from beyond this world. In the comics, he's Hulk's son. The character's too bland for me to have any feelings about him one way or the other.
She-Hulk- Hulk's cousin who he gave blood to, resulting in her powers. Shortest Hulk at 7' ?", and least muscular. Loves fighting. Goes out of her way to not act girly. Ostensibly, she was only added to add a good role model for girls, but behind her "I'm not a girly girl" attitude, there's not much at all; a far cry from the character in the comics, who's actually a professional lawyer, and a good one, at that. Here, she's just "Punchy McSeeHowNotGirlyIAm?"
Let's just get Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. "The Collector" out of the way.
