TV Review: Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. -- "Planet Leader"
"Planet Leader" lets us get a great look at Skaar's home world as we see a father/son bonding between the Hulk and Skaar.
The Leader has fled Earth and the Hulks have followed, only to wind up slaves in the mines of Sakaar. They also learned that through technology the Leader has the entire population of that area, maybe that world, enslaved.
Unfortunately, the Hulks are enslaved by the same device.
Hulk and Skaar team up when they are thrown into a seemingly bottomless pit. Meanwhile, She-Hulk must endure the company of the Leader as he makes her his queen.
Rick offers rescue to Jen after he and Red Hulk escape the mines, but she believes she can do more damage to the villain from within.
Soon in the battle dome, it is a recaptured Skaar vs Hulk. At stake, of course, is "the girl," She-Hulk. Shades of the 1960's!
After Skaar proves himself to be a hero, there is a monster revolt and the Leader's technology is overthrown.
Skaar and the Hulks head home, but the Leader has the final say. He screws with their navigation system and the Hulks wind up ... lost in space!
A funny, sometimes poignant toon.
