It hurts us, it hurts us.

Ahhh, what the f*** Marvel?! This kiddie sh*t was supposed to come after your buyout by Disney! I couldn't stand five SECONDS of this show! For those of you who haven't noticed yet. this is The Marvel Super Hero Squad, basically the Marvel Universe as portrayed by bobbleheaded children. So basically Jim Henson's Marvel Babies would be a good summation. Only difference is, Kermit the Frog never had adamantium claws, and Gonzo never had the Power Cosmic, athough I'm pretty sure Ms. Piggy did have the ability to devour planets. Now, I don't have a problem introducing children to your franchise, but that doesn't mean you have to spoon feed them this drivvle. Maybe it's just aimed at a younger crowed than I should've expected, but that didn't stop me as a child from enjoying the X-men and Spider-Man cartoons on Fox, and those are second only to Batman the Animated series for greatest cartoon based on a comic. Granted this is because Spider-Man had strict censorship, and X-men can only carry the other shows so much (I'm looking at you Avengers, Silver Surfer, and Iron Man), while Batman was the foundation for the Timmiverse, or DC Animated Universe, with classics like the Justice League cartoons and Static Shock. Hell, even Batman: the Brave and the Bold has more dignity than this tripe. With any luck, children will ignore this show and it will get cancelled five episodes in, and they'll go back to watching things like The Spectacular Spider-Man or the Brave and the Bold.
