We have all seen those super deformed / chibi style characters that toy companies are pushing now, Transformers has Robot Heroes, Starwars has Galactic Heroes and now Marvel has a huge range of Superhero Squad.
But this September Marvel and Cartoon network is launching a whole 26 episode series for the new toy line based on the Marvel comic universe. Personally I think it’s great news – The super deformed (SD) format is finally getting a new cartoon, the likes we haven’t seen since Gundam Force.
The cartoon will bring a younger audience into the Marvel comic universe which can only be aided by the recent news of the Disney Marvel merger. This could go either way for the older fans as they could see decades of character development being dragged down to suit a Disney channel generation.
For a cartoon this series has an all star cast the cartoon world hasn’t seen since Captain planet in the 80’s.
And that’s just season one, can you imagine what series two or even a movie could be like. I can’t wait to see this cartoon in full and how they introduce the characters.
