Spider-Man in SHS

leave a comment

Super-Hero Squad Show is Marvel’s new animated TV feature that is pretty funny and has a serious plot about certain powerful infinity fractals in its first season.

Wheres Spider-Man?

Where's Spider-Man?

I’ve watched this for about two months now, hoping to spot my favorite characters, and may I say transformations, in it but am yet to see Spider-Man. What’s the issue here? Spidey is Marvel’s top franchise (Maybe second most today since Iron Man’s claim to movie-fame) and not showing him in their own show just doesn’t make sense to me. Credits for Spider-Man’s voice appears to be the same guy who’s doing Silver Surfer but no screen-time appearance yet.

They’re either saving him for the end, or are skipping him for continuity issues with Spider-Man’s own television feature, or are facing licensing issues with their own character? Heh.

Starship Troopers


Looks like no one remembers this awesome science fiction craze of 1990’s anymore?

Most of you would have seen the 1997 movie “Starship Troopers” which was quite a good movie of its time. There also was a sequel to it called “Starship Troopers 2: Hero of the Federation“. I just caught up with these two movies again this month on DVD and it bought back the good old memories. Got to love guns, power suits and interstellar air-crafts just like the Halo series. ;)

Do any of you remember the “Roughnecks: Starship Troopers Chronicles” series which used to air on AXN around 2001 or so? It was a series representation of the Starship Troopers film adaptation and was fully CGI, way too good for its time! Just recently learnt that it had over 7 campaigns while only 3 were aired in India. So being how easy it is to acquire DVDs in 2007, I got them all, full 8 DVDs of all the campaigns in order:

  • The Pluto Campaign
  • The Hydora Campaign
  • The Tophet Campaign
  • The Tesca Campaign
  • The Zephyr Campaign
  • The Klendathu Campaign
  • The Trackers Episodes along with the Bonus clips, and finally,
  • The Homefront Campaign

It’s too bad the series ended in a cliff-hanger and the planned sequel was never produced since the company behind this masterpiece ran out of money and disappeared off the globe. :(

But anyways, you can wait for the third movie sequel “Starship Troopers: Marauders” coming up next year with an all new story.

You know what’s a Marauder if you’ve seen the Roughnecks series. ;)
