TV Review: Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. -- "For Asgard!"

No matter what the era of Marvel madness, there is nothing quite like a Hulk/Thor classic clash. That, albeit all too brief, was in the offing Sunday morning on Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. on Disney XD.

The script, where Skaar is chosen an elite guard of Asgard, is a clever one, and seems to fit the misfit S.M.A.S.H. member of the Hulk’s clan. But when Skaar unleashes the Odinsword and Dark Energies, it is in the clink … all courtesy of its only prisoner, Loki.

Skaar’s sentence of 10,000 years for unsheathing the Odinsword sets Avenger against Avenger, but in no time it is the ever-present Malekith (is there any Marvel media he is NOT in?) that unites the Agents and the Asgardians as the Warriors Three and the Hulks battle the Dark Elves.

Ironically, it is Skaar – with the Odinsword, sheathed – that saves the day as he clears the deck like a Mjolnir-created vortex (oh yeah, that is here too).

The script is as usual a clever one, complete with a Hulk apology to Thor and the Thunder God saying he LIKES Hulk when he is angry (a clever reshaping of David Banner’s statement at the beginning of CBS’s Incredible Hulk series of the 1970s).

This one has it all, and is one of the more entertaining in this series of Merry Marvel toons. Good fun.
