"Prime's Place, where all are one..."

A Web Series that first aired in September, 2018, Hero House is an action-figure comedy (similar to I'm a Marvel... And I'm a DC), featuring just about every pop-culture character to ever be cast into plastic. It is written, filmed, directed and voiced by a Youtuber of the same name, which leads to countless examples of Talking to Himself. Parodic in tone, the series depicts several beloved icons as drunken, selfish louts, though several glimpses of humanity do shine through. The action really kicks off with the ending of episode one, in which a very prominent hero is murdered. The rest of the series builds from there, spinning out into a conflict that covers countless dimensions (and franchises).


Episodes are updated weekly, with the first to be found here:

    • this version of Tommy the Green Ranger (Power Rangers) are far Worse than his Canon Tv Show Counterpart.
    • this version of Conan the Barbarian are Far Worse than his Canon Comic Book Counterpart.
  • Adaptational Heroism: This web series version of Shao Kahn of all people from Mortal Kombat Franchise are far heroic then his Canon Video Game Counterpart.
  • Back from the Dead: Its frequency in comics is directly addressed, as is the fact that it no longer seems possible.
  • Bad-Guy Bar: The Joker's Joint, formerly known as the Iceberg Lounge, until the Joker murdered the Penguin.
  • Batman Gambit: Attempted by Kratos, Doom and Bane, who all took advantage of the heroes predictable responses. Oddly enough, the person who suffered the most was Batman himself.

  • Beware the Nice Ones: Nightwing. He may be friendly and slightly pathetic, but when push comes to shove, he can stand toe-to-toe with a predator twice his size.
  • Beyond the Impossible: Ant-man's camping skills. He can provide electricity through nought but twigs and leaves.
  • Big Good: Several, though considering he provides the venue, Optimus Prime seems the most likely choice.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Thor gets to save just about everyone in the first episode of Season Two.
  • Break the Cutie: While not cute, exactly, He-man is one of the most noble heroes, which makes his ordeal in Season Four all the worse.
  • Camp Gay: Franky is this, in contrast to Winter Soldier's much more subdued demeanor.
  • Character Development: Nightwing is a solid example over the course of season one, going from Batman's clumsy former sidekick to a confident, respected leader, who orchestrates the infiltration of Castle Doom itself.
  • Curbstomp Battle:
    • Solid didn't have much difficulty putting Liquid down.
    • After Patamon transform into MagnaAngemon, he gives one this to Etrigan (the Demon) before killing him.
  • Death Is Cheap: Directly referenced by Red Hood in Episode Three. Its frequency seems to have given him a rather...nihilistic point of view.
  • Even Evil Has Standards: Most villains have this reaction to the Joker, especially considering what he did to The Penguin
  • Godzilla Threshold: Breached by both the Villains and the Heroes in episode ten, with Liquid summoning Godzilla, while Optimus brings in Gamera. Awesome ensues.
  • Good Is Not Nice: For all their heroic deeds, several of the patrons are arseholes. Special mention goes to Red Hood.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Both DIO and Big Boss may qualify, as they seem to have been instructing Kratos
  • Knight Templar: Implied with Kratos. He seems to have taken the common interpretation of superheroes being modern Gods quite literally, and has decided to add them all to his kill-list.
  • Large Ham: Franky is a rather stellar example, dominating most scenes he appears in.
  • Leitmotif: Kratos' theme plays whenever he's on screen.
  • Put on a Bus: After being injured, Captain America essentially disappears.
  • Rousing Speech: Robin delivers one in Episode Seven, rallying Nightwing after Batman's death
  • Storming the Castle: One hell of an example in Episode Ten, when basically every hero in existence attacks Castle Doom.
