The Hulk gets to lead his own team of 'Hulks', in Hulk And The Agents of S.M.A.S.H.
Say hello to the angry green giant and his posse of ... giants.
What's more smashing than the Hulk having his own show? Why, having five Hulks in one show, of course!
In a fun-filled animated series titled Marvel’s Hulk And The Agents Of S.M.A.S.H., everyone’s favourite angry green giant teams up with four other “Hulks” from the Marvel Universe – Red Hulk, A-Bomb, She-Hulk and Skaar – for the very first time, to tackle threats that are just too big and too strong for other puny heroes to handle.
Living under one roof, with A-Bomb producing a reality-based web series documenting their epic deeds and exhilarating adventures, the Hulks encounter the everyday problems of a new unconventional family dynamic, while defending the galaxy from menacing villains. They also learn that no matter how big you are, you still have the same little problems.
Here’s a brief rundown of each Hulk and what they bring to the team:
The team leader and strongest hero in the Marvel Universe, Hulk was transformed from Bruce Banner as a result of gamma radiation, but now has mastery over the power that once dominated him.
Although he still has a temper, he is determined to use his abilities to help humankind and to prove himself a hero to the rest of the world. But first, he must overcome his tendency to work alone and learn to delegate to the team.
Hulk’s former archenemy, General Thaddeus “Thunderbolt” Ross, used gamma rays to transform himself into the hot-tempered, “smash first, ask questions later” soldier Hulk of the team. Red brings a cunning military mind to the team and is also a skilled strategist, which leaves him often at odds with Hulk.
Once an aspiring rock and roll musician and Hulk’s only human friend, teenager Rick Jones was accidentally exposed to gamma radiation and became the Hulked-up A-Bomb.
Apart from learning to fit in with the team, A-Bomb must also hone his new powers, which range from rolling into a massive ball to plough through villains to the ability to go into camouflage mode and blend into backgrounds.
Bruce Banner’s brainy and beautiful young cousin, Jennifer Walters, was transformed after receiving an emergency blood transfusion from him after an accident in order to save her life. She is the most accomplished fighter, having mastered a variety of fighting techniques. Most likely to devise a rational solution before smashing, she tends to be the peacemaker of the group.
Coming from another world, the mysterious teenaged Skaar is a gamma-powered barbarian with expert survival skills who has found a home with the other Hulks. He is armed with both primitive and futuristic gear including a razor-sharp metal sword and an energy blade capable of cutting through any substance.
> Marvel’s Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. is on every Saturday and Sunday, 11am, on Disney XD, Astro Ch 617/HD Ch 637.
