So awful
First of all, the characters. None of their personalities are right. Iron Man is bland, Hulk get's excited over tigers calling them 'kitties', Captain America talks like it's the 30's or 40's,(Though I never read Captain America, so that might be what his personality is like) and Silver Surfer talks in slang. Since when did Silver Surfer talk in slang. They only slightly got Wolverine's personality right. Second, the jokes. What I said about Hulk above pretty much describes them. Bland, repetitive gags about the characters personality, or very lame puns. I suppose the personality think was mean for the show to be funny, but did they really need to make the hulk an Adult Child? Did they REALLY need to make Thor talk like shake sphere? (Never read the Thor comics either, so like Captain America, might be what he's like.) It get's really old, really fast, and little thought is put into this.
It's a Saturday morning kid's show. If anything, the Ham And Cheese adds to the experience.

Just my opinion, though.

It's a comedic take on the toy versions for kids. It's a different continuity.

I'm still mad about no Deadpool, though.

Its a parody, its not suppose to be serious.

I don't see what's wrong with what they did with Thor really. But I agree that they really screwed up with Hulk, as if they don't know anything about him.

Tomodachi: Does being a parody really work as an excuse here? Just because it's a parody doesn't mean it can sucks or disrespect the characters. Batman: The Brave and the Bold, Teen Titans, were humorous shows, and they still kept the characters with some depht and good jokes; I personnally don't have a definite opinion of Super Hero Squad, but it IS inferior in quality to those two shows.

This is not a parody. This is a silly, fun super hero show aimed at children. It works for the audience it is directed at. I for one love it, it's a very light breath of fresh air.

The joke with Silver Surfer's lingo is that he is a surfer. It's a gag. The show doesn't have to respect the characters because it isn't a straight adaption, it is a gag-based show for children. You are looking for gold in a silver mine. You are missing the point. If you want character development and exposition and faithful characters, watch one of the Avengers cartoons (and I mean the ones taged with Avengers - this show features a form of the Avengers, but is not marketed as an Avengers title) - this is a child's show and you are applying the scrutiny of a mature superhero cartoon adaption.
