TUBS OF POPCORN: I give “The Superhero Squad Show: The Infinity Gauntlet” three tubs of popcorn out of five. This is an ingenious show filled with something for everyone. There is comedy, slapstick humor, creatures, and great animation of the characters. This is definitely a DVD kids and kids-at-heart will watch over and over again.
This is the second season being offered by Marvel and Shout Factory, which obviously knows its audience. Putting an intelligent story line together and taking it story by story is a fantastic way to offer viewers a chance to know their heroes.
