On with the Review.
So, both longtime readers of my blog will know that I dislike what I call "Ninja Episodes" of Batman cartoons. Not because I don't like ninjas, but because the plots are all ridiculously similar. With Marvel shows, I reserve my scorn for "Atlantis Episodes." In Atlantis Episodes, Atlantis attacks the surface world for whatever reason. That's it. The same plot, over and over. It's shown up in Fantastic Four: World's Greatest Heroes, Justice League, Fantastic Four, and possibly more that I can't remember off the top of my head. Not to mention all the comics that use the plot, too. With varying results.
|Remember when Tony Stark tricked Atlantis into attacking America? That's okay, neither does Marvel.|
|This guy owns most of the world.|
|A gang, at best.|
|Aquaman's brother knows how it's done.|
Storms. Tsunamis. Countless soldiers sheathed in crustacean armor. Real Old Testament stuff.
And as for the Hulk's plot, it's standard stuff, too. The question of "Can we trust the Hulk?" is answered with a resounding "yes" after a forgettable episode. If you want a better character study of the Hulk, then wait a few episodes for "Hulked-Out Heroes."
Next time, Doctor Doom returns. To the shock of no one, he's still obsessed with Asgard. See you then.
