This is a very funny cartoon about a group of aging
superheroes. I know that the team who did "Robot Chicken" is
behind it, but frankly I find it better than that show.
Here's why. I'm 53, and so I don't get some of the younger
pop culture references in "Robot Chicken." However,
this show is about superheroes, so I get those references.
It's more of a show for geeks, especially superhero fans.
The show basically satires "The Avengers" and other
superhero teams. They have a character, American
Ranger (Keegan-Michael Key), who is kind of a combination of
Batman and Captain America. He was frozen for a long time
and was recently revived (like Cap), but he also acts a lot
like Batman and has a very similar voice. His arch-nemesis
is a lot like The Joker. They have a black character in the
first episode with an eye-patch, who looks and sounds a lot
like Samuel L. Jackson's Fury. The female cat character is
somewhat like Catwoman but also reminds me of the Cat
character on "Red Dwarf." It's hard to pick a favorite, but
I do love Jewbot as well as American Ranger.
The "star" of the show is Titanium Rex (voice by Bryan
Cranston), who is very old and trying to keep his team of
crazy superheroes together. I just laughed all the way
through it. I don't know anyone who's a comic book fan that
won't find it hilarious.
