Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H is new animated series that made its debut on Disney XD last Sunday airing alongside Ultimate Spider-Man (season 2) and Avengers Assemble, another new series.
If you're a comic book purist, you might want to stay away from this one. It's not as bad as I expected, but it's not anywhere near what Hulk fans have come to expect from old Jade Jaws. First of all, this is not the dumb, childlike Hulk or "classic Hulk" as I like to call him. It's not the gray-skinned Joe Fixit hulk either. Nor is it the super smart Hulk (with Banner's mind fully intact). It's sort of a mixture of the three.
The show has a fair share of action and the animation is solid, but it also plays for laughs and that's where it runs a little weak. Actor Seth Green (Robot Chicken) voices Rick Jones/A-Bomb and is the comic relief. Unfortunately, Jones becomes more annoying than comical— a surprise since Green was funny voicing the various characters from his hit show Robot Chicken.
As for the just of it— Jones decides to film the Hulk's adventures and air them as a reality show in order to show the world that the Hulk is really a hero. As for the "S.M.A.S.H." acronym, that hasn't been established yet, so it's anybody's guess what it stands for.
In addition to Green, the cast includes Clancy Brown as the Red Hulk, Fred Talasciore as the green Hulk and Eliza Dushku as She-Hulk.
