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

Body

15836

In the long history of Marvel's animated superheroes, you can always bet that at least one episode will revolve around the hero/team discovering the hidden home of the Inhumans.

That brings us to Sunday's episode of Hulk and the Agents of Smash on Disney XD, as Rick Jones happens upon a very enthusiastic and flirty Crystal and the two seem to quickly form a bond.

A cloaked Triton spoils the fun for the young folks and Rick is accidentally transported via Lockjaw back to the hidden land of Attilan (in this case , the realm is in the Himalayas).

The Hulks track Rick to Attilan and chaos ensues as Maximus preaches about the prejudice of humans while Medusa mouths endless homilies about how Inhumans are "nothing like mankind." The irony here is that it is the Inhumans who continually treat the Hulks like yesterday's garbage while the Green Team stays their power to "not be seen as jerks."

Crystal and Rick, meanwhile, discover Maximus' secret stash of weapons and the Royal Family of the Inhumans and the Hulks team up to stop the traitor.

It is a most enjoyable episode and one that speaks to the dangers of isolationism. The scene wherein Skaar is scratching an ear of his new "puppy" friend, Lockjaw, while the big dog'srear leg goes up and down is priceless. Skaar's leg is going up and down too!

Imagination, creativity and some great humor are found in this episode, one of the most enjoyable Inhuman Marvel toons of all time.
