Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. is an American animated television series based on the superhero character by Marvel Comics. The series premiered on August 11, 2013 on Disney XD in its Marvel Universe block.[1][2]

Plot[edit]

Hulk, She-Hulk, the Red Hulk, A-Bomb, and Skaar join together as the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. (the acronym has not been defined yet) to tackle threats that no other superheroes can face in the cameras set up by Rick Jones for his reality show so that the people can see that Hulk is more than a monster. The Agents of S.M.A.S.H. have their base near the town of Vista Verde (which is where Bruce Banner first became Hulk).

The show is shown from the perspective of Rick's cameras, resulting in humorous vignettes and visual gags throughout each episode such as a description (or lack there of) of the "original" Hulk's choice words after a hamburger landed on him, Rick thinking the Hulkbuster armor is awesome followed by a cut-away of him saying "hey, wait a minute" or when the Collector took off Spider-Man's mask (his face was pixelated to hide his identity from the viewers in the show).

Production[edit]

Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. was unveiled at the 2011 San Diego Comic Con.[3] Before it aired, writers Paul Dini and Henry Gilroy were confirmed to be writing on the series.[2] Supervising Producer Cort Lane described the series as, "a great story about a great group of characters who have a really interesting family-style dynamic. It's very funny, with just the most amazing voice cast."[4]
