Marvel Adventures - Super Heroes #1

As requested, the Marvel Adventures issue with the Grecian hellhounds. Pure crack, guys.

This is also, ah, my first post here - so if I've screwed up somehow, let me know.

Our heroes are enjoying some down time… perhaps too much. We find them idly experimenting with Spidey's stickiness.

When suddenly…

Hercules has something of a tie-up that keeps him from the vacation he's been wanting. Good thing our heroes are so accomodating.

So the dogs get loose, and the first fight with Cerberus and Orthus is underway! Spidey and Shellhead are summarily pwned, but Hulk easily manages to subdue Orthus with a mighty blow. Unfortunately…

…there are two dogs.

A chase ensues, and our heroes manage to track Cerberus to a nearby park, where he's chewing on a statue. Fight #2 ensues. Points go something like this: Dogs – 1, Hulk – 2, Spidey & Iron Man – -3.

Obedience school is glossed over. Iron Man gets chewed up a lot. Spidey films it all. But after a long, frustrating while, the dogs' behaviour begins showing a marked improvement. They roll over! They beg! They don't try to eat Tony Stark!

In one panel, we get a shot of a rather attractive, leggy woman, who turns out to be running a dog show. Impressed by the domestication of Cerberus and Orthus, she asks our heroes to bring them to the show. Our heroes are understandably dubious. Attractive Dog Show Lady manages to convince them otherwise, with her feminine wiles and the clever notion to appeal to our heroes' philanthropic leanings.

Our heroes wander the show for a while and insult other people's dogs. Hercules turns up and tries to pick up some ladies, who spurn him because they don't believe he's really Hercules. To prove his identity, Hercules attempts to fight Cerberus – but Hulk, having grown fond of the "doggies", attacks him. Another brawl ensues, but the combined efforts of Spidey, Iron Man, Hulk, and both dogs easily take him down. End score: Dogs: 5, Hulk: 8, Spidey – 3, Iron Man – -4, Hercules – even zero, because he scored a ribbon, even if he didn't score with the ladies.

Orthus runs off with a chihuahua. Hulk gets a ribbon and some pizza. The end.

Speaking of how one loves this series is only redundant at this point.

But the obedience training sequence is the BEST PART of this story!

I agree. Or, rather, I can't agree YET, because I haven't actually read that part, but I would definitely like to see it - it sounds like fun.

Marvel's Hercules is nothing if not respectful.

Endless love for Marvel Adventures!

I demand that the rest of the Marvelverse shape up and become more like the Marvel Adventures line!

DC, too, in fact! There needs to be some cracked-out fun on the DC side of the aisle, too.

Johnny DC is pretty good about that.

More please. This is what should be happening in 616.

Marvel Adventures: Super Heroes is my favourite bit of the Marvel Adventures stuff.

How about the time when Dr. Strange defeated Dormammu because he didn't pay exact change? Or anything involving Hank Pym and his ants?

It's sheer awesome.

Hilarious as the Super Heroes line is, my favorite bit with ants is still the pwning of Erik Josten.

It's so happy and fun.

I think my favorite part was Spidey flipping out and going "Dude! Seriously! Do! Not! Throw! Cars! At! Me!" after Herc did just that.

I adore this series. Squee! ^_____^

Wow. That is just ... awesome.

I'm going to have to keep an eye out for this one. LOL

Why do I always find women in MA line hotter than the mainstream ones? I mean Janet, Tigra, Storm, Felicia, the lady here they all look considerably better than any other women I've seen in current mainstream comics.

'Cause they actually smile on occasion in MA?

[identity profile] 2009-05-21 11:58 pm (UTC)(link)
Women in the MA line aren't meant as T&A, which makes them all the sexier.

Well, okay, maybe a little T&A, but then we get Tony and Steve playing basketball and getting sweaty, so it evens out.

This is so cute! Please, can someone post the ants and other fun parts from Marvel Adventures?
