Characters: The Super Hero Squad Show
open/close all folders
Iron Man/Tony StarkThe Leader 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.
- Catch Phrase: "Alright Squaddies, time to Hero Up!"
Wolverine/James "Logan" HowlettFormer 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.
Voiced By: Steve Blum
- Healing Factor: Which is rarely ever mentioned. It's mostly the adamantium skeleton thing.
- Wolverine Publicity: Has a list of all the people he's teamed-up with including the Easter Bunny.
The Hulk/Robert Bruce BannerThe 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.
Voiced By: Travis Willingham
- The Nicknamer: Falcon is "Bird", Reptil is "Lobster" due to him turning red when he transforms, etc.
- Took a Level in Kindness: Not the ol' "smash and kill everything" Hulk you used to know. In fact, this is the only story to portray Hulk in a positive manner.
Voiced By: Dave Boat
- Real Men Wear Pink: He is quite mindful of keeping his fabulous hair looking good.
- Ye Olde Butcherede Englishe: Like in the comics, he still talks like a character from a fantasy novel.
The Falcon/Sam Wilson and RedwingThe 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.

Scarlet Witch/Wanda MaximoffThe 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.
Reptil/Humberto LopezA 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.

- Verbal Tic: brrt tends to get peppered throughout his speech patterns.
Silver Surfer/Dark Surfer/Norrin RaddThe 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.

M.O.D.O.K./George TarletonMODOK is a small villain with superhuman intellect and psionic abilities. He's also cranky, has a massive ego, and is full of schemes for usurping Doom's power and achieving world domination. Doom is aware that MODOK plots against him, but doesn't seem the least bit worried, which infuriates MODOK. He moves about on a flying hover-chair outfitted with a variety of weapons, which runs on a miniature nuclear reactor and a pair of AA batteries. He has a crush on Ms. Marvel who really doesn't feel the same way about him.
The Abomination/Emil BlonskyAbomination is huge, mean and disgusting, with strength approaching the Hulk's and an IQ to match. Usually partnered with MODOK (who considers him a revolting idiot), Abomination is extraordinarily powerful and threatening, but just as easily duped by the Squaddies as by his Lethal Legion bosses.
