TV Review: Marvel Maximum Overload (Disney XD)

Body

12562

LEGO Loki is going crazy with his Norn Frost snowballs, overloading Marvel Earth's greatest supervillains to commit power-raised villainy on Marvel superheroes.

This great new LEGO animation short on Disney XD Sunday night really captures both the humor and the drama of the Marvel U., showing some of its best (and worst) faults .
 
Special mention goes to Pepper Potts racing Iron Man to lunch in an Iron Man suit, Wolverine making kabobs on his claws, heroes teasing Spidey about being too whiny, and Stan Lee appearing as every cameo character.
 
We have great faceoffs between Spidey and Venom, Mandarin and Iron Man, Hulk and Abomination, and finally a SHIELD Helicarrier full of ...  well, everybody!
 
Thor arrives among the villain uprise, recognizes the Norn Frost and takes Iron Man and Spider-Man to the villain's lair.
 
Loki overloads himself, but slips on some of the melting Norn Frost. He slides toward a chasm but is rescued (eventually) by his brother. Thor chastises Loki and tells him that he's going to tell Odin about his mischief. Loki begs him no to, but the Avengers disappear.
 
This is a well-conceived and delightful animated special. Those LEGOS really go far!
