Lego Marvel Super Heroes
Hot off the heels of the release of the video game LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, the toy brand and the comics publisher are teaming up once again for a five-episode Web series that will be available on the Disney YouTube channel as well as Disney's Roku and XBox-connected TV apps.
Maximum Overload, which finds Loki amassing an army to take on all of Marvel's heroes, went online today with all five episodes. It's loaded with cameos (look out for J.K. Simmons as J. Jonah Jameson and Stan Lee in episode 2). You can hit the jump to watch all five shorts in full right now.
Two of the things I have loved longest in life -- besides family, fireworks and cake -- are Lego and the Marvel universe. They were two things that sparked and fed my imagination and helped me play.
Now they've come together in the video game Lego Marvel Super Heroes. There was very little chance that I wasn't going to buy a game that combines two such nostalgic favorites. Still it comes as a great relief to discover that Lego Marvel Super Heroes doesn't just tap into my nerd reflexes; it's also tremendous fun.
It's no surprise that LEGO and developer TT Games are playing up the characters and settings from The Avengers in the official launch trailer for LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, which is available in stores today. Nick Fury, Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, Black Widow, the Hulk, Loki and the Helicarrier are all front-and-center. Oh, and Galactus.
