Marvels The Offenders Brings A New Superhero Team to Hulu

first_imgStay on target How many Marvel superhero teams is too many? Well between half of the Avengers being temporarily dead, and nearly all of the Defenders being actually dead as Disney drops Netflix, there’s really a void to be filled for solo superheroes stories leading to a big team up.And some surprising characters are going to be filling that void with The Offenders, a new adult animation initiative from Jeph Loeb and Marvel Television coming soon to Hulu.As with the Avengers and Defenders, The Offenders will be four separate series that lead into one big team up event. But instead of heavy-hitters like Captain America and Daredevil, these Offenders cartoons will highlight more unexpected characters, and feature more unexpected creators.The M.O.D.O.K. cartoon will follow everyone’s favorite giant evil floating head struggling to lead his henchmen and comes from writers Jordan Blum and Patton Oswalt (who we pray is also playing the lead role).Erica Rivinoja and Chelsea Handler are teaming up for Tigra & Dazzler which sees the two “woke super heroes” teaming up in L.A. for what may be the first time in any medium.Howard The Duck hopefully brings us more of the funny animal’s comic book absurdity, instead of the live-action nightmare, and features creators Kevin Smith and Dave Wills.Finally Hit Monkey is a “brutally funny revenge saga” about an assassin money with a stylish outfit, thanks Josh Gordon and Will Speck.So yeah, pretty random characters that will all eventually come together in The Offenders. The weirdness should help the comedy, which sounds like it’s going to be a bit raunchier perhaps competing with DC’s streaming Harley Quinn cartoon or that cancelled Donald Glover Deadpool project. Maybe that’s also why the shows are coming to Hulu and not the more family friendly Disney+. We just hope we’re not talking Marvel Netflix levels of sex, especially with M.O.D.O.K. involved.We also figure these characters (a giant head, tiger lady, talking monkey and duck) are easier to depict in animation rather than live-action. Howard the Duck has only had like 30 seconds of screen time across two Guardians of the Galaxy movies. And while she looks pretty normal, Dazzler is canonically a mutant. So is her appearance here secretly Marvel’s first fast fruit of the Disney+Fox merger? Hit Monkey also originated from Deadpool comics. Whatever they do, they should cast a real pop star as Dazzler’s voice. It’s not like Disney is lacking any of those.Watch out for Marvel’s The Offenders coming soon to Hulu.
