Characters: The Super Hero Squad Show
open/close all folders
of the Super Hero Squad, Tony Stark is known to the public as both an inventor and a hero. He is also the team's Tech Factor
having a suit of armor or other device for any situation. These gadgets often don't get tested and sometimes blow-up or backfire, but usually come through in the end. Iron Man has also been on dates with several super-heroines, including She-Hulk
Wolverine/James "Logan" Howlett
Former member of the X-Men
, Wolverine, is the Squaddies' second-in-command and the team's Animal Factor
. With his Healing Factor
, adamantium (unbreakable metal) skeleton and razor sharp metal claws, Wolverine feels he's the best a what he does, kicking butt. Typically a loner, and a sourpuss, Wolverine is a seasoned warrior and is not above using teamwork to get the job done. To his annoyance, he's forced into being Reptil's mentor and is usually the one that has to keep him, Falcon and Hulk out of trouble.
The Hulk/Robert Bruce Banner
The unpredictable, nearly uncontrollable Hulk is the Squaddies' Strength Factor
. More powerful than a locomotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound
, the Hulk, well meaning as he is, is the most childlike and reckless of all the Squaddies and is easily prone to distraction. Despite it all, Hulk likes to smash bad guys and overall is a valuable asset to the Super Hero Squad.
Thor is the thunder god from Asgard and the Squaddies' Elemental Factor
. Already super powerful, with his mystic hammer, Mjolnir, Thor can fly and control the wind. While he talks like something out a Shakespeare play
, the son of Odin is usually upbeat and enthusiastic, especially a good battle or feast.

The Falcon/Sam Wilson and Redwing
The team's Speed Factor
, Falcon flies with wings made of "hard light" (a solid hologram). He's upgraded them with Stark-built "feathers" that shoot out as projectiles. Falcon communicates telepathically with birds, particularly his pet falcon Redwing. He can even "see" through their eyes, which comes in handy when the team needs recon. A prankster, showboater and adrenaline junkie, Falcon loves flying at high speeds, but will get serious when the situation calls for it.
Voiced By: Alimi Ballard (Falcon) and Steve Blum
The Scarlett Witch was raised to be a super villain by her father, Magneto
. She uses probability-altering hexes and can fire them as "hex bolts". Her powers tend not to work the way she wants, sometimes they backfire, other times they work even better than she even expected. After meeting with Falcon and the Squaddies she decided to turn good. Wanda joins them in the second season when Thanos searches for the Infinity Gems. She also takes up the role as the team's Energy Factor
, after the Silver Surfer leaves.
A young Squaddie in training, Reptil can call on the the abilities of various dinosaurs in season 1 and (because older fans and paleontologists were crying
about the impossibility of some of his abilities) transform into full dinosaurs in season 2 due to the Sunstone around his neck. Placed under Wolverine's training by Captain America, Reptil is being trained to better control his powers and become a great hero.
Voiced By: Antony Del Rio

The Squaddies' former Energy Factor
, the Silver Surfer is an alien with control over the power cosmic, including his flying surfboard. He talks in a stereotypical surf culture accent and likes to engage in philosophical discussions. After his former master, Galactus arrives to eat the planet Earth, the Silver Surfer convinces Galactus to leave the Earth in peace, and he would become his herald in return taking the reassembled Infinity Sword with him. In Season two he becomes corrupted by the Infinity Sword and manages to steal the Infinity Gauntlet and Gems from Thanos. With the combined powers of all these items, he becomes the Dark Surfer.

He has a crush on Ms. Marvel who really doesn't feel the same way about him.
The Abomination/Emil Blonsky
