This must have been a joke at the panel that was misinterpreted. Right?

The number of Hulks around is starting to get irritating.

The other 3 people at work who do the same job that I do have all never heard of Bodger & Badger. I forgot to put that in the "Feeling Old" thread, but they were born in the early 90s. One hadn't even heard of Cheryl Baker...

On topic: Why is it that Marvel have a virtual stranglehold of CBMs whereas they can barely get the cartoons right, and DC is vice versa? I'm not optimistic about this series....

It's true Ian, you're ancient.

Yeah, DC get their movies right occasionally but by and large it's pretty scattershot, Marvel's got the real masterplan on that front.

I would say though that Marvel has done ok. I'm not the biggest fan but I enjoyed the episode of The Avengers I saw at C2E2, and the upcoming Spider-man and anime projects look great too.

Sorry, didn't mean to bring it up so near to your impending birthday!

WB interferes in DC movies way too much - when they leave directors alone, they get the Nolanverse.

And I should clarify what I say in that Marvel cartoons get over-shadowed by their DC counterparts, even when the cartoons in question are fine-to-very good. The 90s Marvel toons were very watchable, but the DCAU made more of an impact. And even nowadays, we seem to discuss The Brave & The Bold a lot more than Wolverine & the X-men or the recent Spider-Man cartoons.

True. I think the Marvel cartoon that got most chatter in recent times was the Spectacular Spider-man, mostly because it was a Spidey cartoon that didn't suck unlike the couple before. DC just has a much stronger tradition in that area, the DCAU was incredibly cohesive in putting together a wider universe up until Teen Titans and the Legion cartoon. Even past that they've focused on movies that serious adaptations of notable works, something Marvel has rarely touched.

Unfortunately this Hulk cartoon isn't going to change anything for Marvel, they seem to make stuff to fill holes in certain markets rather than to build something wider.

The only Marvel cartoons in the last 20 years that have really been truly remarkable are X-Men (1992), Spider-Man (1994), and The Spectacular Spider-Man. Comparatively, DC beats them by a mile.

It's all because WB pushed their TV animation to be the quality equivalent of Disney movies in the early 90s. Marvel hasn't been able to consistently draw on those same resources, and have mostly hopped around from network to network. Since 2000, they've been making shows mostly just to cash in on whatever films are being released at the time, rather than trying to make good standalone series.

Spider-Man '94, really? Every episode I've seen has been terrible. It always seems like a parody of Spider-Man to me.

By modern standards sure, but as someone who watched it as a kid when it aired, it's the reason Spider-Man became my favorite superhero.

It's not a good show, really, but it did introduce the 90s generation to Spider-Man and it was reasonably(ish) true to the comics enough that it sort of educated kids on comics characters and stories. Just for the sheer number of storylines and the fact that it captured so many kids' imaginations, it's "remarkable."

Okay that makes sense. I've just always seen it ranked up with Batman: The Animated Series and other shows that it's far inferior to and it has always confused me. I do however appreciate it for its complex ongoing story arcs, something that other animated television strayed away from at the time.

Agreed, and I'd put Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes up against anything DC has done.

Season 1, perhaps. Season 2, ehhhh. That's where it really fell off for my friends and I.

Better even. Except maybe Young Justice.
