It’s no small job protecting Super Hero City from the wild, weird (& even wacky) villainy of Villainville’s infamous baddies… but Iron Man, Wolverine, the Hulk, the Silver Surfer, Thor and the Falcon are always up for the job. Shouting “Hero Up!” as they rush into battle, the Squad must keep Dr. Doom’s minions from gathering pieces of the Infinity Sword. Otherwise, Doom will use the Sword to rule the universe! Luckily, the City is filled with Marvel Super Hero guest-stars to help out in a pinch. These brave heroes totally deliver the action – but with plenty of humor on the side.
On July 13, 2010, Shout! Factory, in collaboration with Marvel Animation, will release The Super Hero Squad Show: Quest For The Infinity Sword! Volume 1 DVD, featuring the first six episodes from the first season of this popular action-packed animated series and special bonus features including a new interview with Stan Lee, Hero & Villain character profiles and a sneak peek at Quest For The Infinity Sword! Volume 2 DVD. A must-have for heroes of all ages, this DVD is priced to own at $14.93 SRP.
