TV Review: Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. -- "Deathlok"

Body

14936

A neat little ditty this time around about not judging a book by its cover.

You’d think if you were misunderstood heroes like the Hulks, that would come naturally. Not so, as they read Deathlok from the future as a bad guy because of his cyborg looks.

It appears he is tracking a mall goer, a little girl, but again appearances can be deceiving. Enter: The Super-Skrull, a shape-shifting alien who has the combined powers of the Fantastic Four, and others of his kind. (Turns out the mall is, in fact, a Skrullian spaceship!) They are about to conquer Earth, according to "DL," as A-Bomb calls the "robot dude."

After battling first Deathlok and then shadows, shape-shifters and each other, the Hulks get the upper hand in the battle amid in-jokes and alien-smashing. There are some great action scenes here and, as ever, the character work (especially with Red Hulk and Rick Jones) is excellent.

Attention Andy Griffith Show fans: there is a homage to Deputy Barney Fife in the mall scenes. So cool.

The Agents of S.M.A.S.H. really grow on you. These Marvel Disney XD toons are becoming quick classics.
