Hulk Vs. finds the not-so-jolly green giant in two different adventures that have more to do with the challengers as the Hulk is just the catalyst of the stories, but that doesn’t make them any less fun for Marvel Comics fans.
“Hulk vs. Wolverine” is a 37-minute feature that deals with Wolverine’s origin. The movie opens with Wolverine waking up in the middle of a forest, unsure of what’s happening. A loud scream rings out and The Hulk leaps into the clearing, refreshing Wolverine’s memory. Four hours earlier, the Canadian military show a plainclothes Logan around a city that the Hulk devastated as he passed through. Logan is tasked with stopping or killing the Hulk. Back in costume, Wolverine finds Bruce Banner in the woods, but the Hulk is quick to show up. Although Wolverine does some damage with his adamantium claws, Hulk lays a savage beatdown on him.
During this first fight, my nine-year-old nephew Sobrino Poco Loco claimed this was “the best cartoon he’s ever seen because it’s so violent,” correctly pointing out “you don’t see this in SpongeBob.”
In the middle of their fight, both heroes get shot with tranquilizers, administered by Deadpool. Sabretooth, Omega Red, and Lady Deathstrike accompany him. While unconscious, Wolverine’s origin plays out. When he wakes, he learns that Hydra’s Weapon X team sought out the Hulk to turn him into a weapon. The plan is foiled because the villains desire revenge against Wolverine, who foil that plan by unleashing the Hulk. Make sure you stay tuned after the credits
“Hulk vs. Wolverine” is a very good cartoon with a lot of action. Sobrino used “awesome” and “cool” to describe it and noted “every kid loves violence.” It also portrays Wolverine’s origin story well. The only downside is that everyone involved with Weapon X seems to have magical healing powers that allow them to put themselves back together when limbs are lost. When a slice of Deadpool’s arm slides by like a piece of meat, Sobrino said it “should have been rated R.”
