If you do not know who The Super Hero Squad is, they are a team of Marvel superheroes led by Captain America. The team includes Iron Man, Wolverine, Falcon, Thor, The Hulk, and Silver Surfer. To add to the fun, there are always guest appearances by other Marvel superheroes, such as Storm, Ms. Marvel, The Fantastic Four, Reptil, Hawkeye, and more. They all team up against the evil Dr. Doom and his many cohorts.
This DVD The Super Hero Squad Show: Quest for the Infinity Sword! is approximately two and a half hours long and contains the following episodes:
- "And Lo . . . A Pilot Shall Come!"
- "This Silver, This Surfer!"
- "Hulk Talk Smack!"
- "To Err Is Superhuman!"
- "Enter: Dormammu!"
- "A Brat Walks Among Us!"
- "Oh Brother!"
When the DVD first started, I immediately heard my 3-1/2 year old son yell, "IRON MAN!!!" Can you guess who his favorite character is? I thought his twin sister would choose one of the female superheroes as her favorite, but she is apparently a huge Iron Man fan as well. My 6-1/2 year old son, however, named Reptil as his favorite character. All 3 children enjoyed this DVD so much. There is a comedic element that just made them laugh out loud at least once or twice during each episode. That combined with the superhero action made this DVD a big hit in my house.
This DVD retails for $14.93 and can be pre-ordered until the street date July 13th, 2010. You can find it at the Shout Factory Store, Amazon.com, and other retailers of children's DVDs.
