Funny thing is, while listening to the embedded Hulk theme music (which is indeed excellent, and I say this as someone who didn't even know that particular cartoon existed before reading this article, let alone had heard the theme music before), I was thinking that it would also suit Godzilla really well. It's very monster movie-esque, of course, but with an understated feeling of nobility and an overall plodding, inevitable quality that communicates nothing will be able to stand in the main character's way. Which is theoretically a less odd musical choice for Godzilla than it is for the Hulk, for whom you'd think the music would be of a more fast, intense, and frantic sort in keeping with his boundless rage, but it ends up fitting better than any other Hulk music that comes to mind. Good stuff, to be sure.the appeal of a good guy whose "power" is to get angry and stomp around smashing and throwing stuff just feels so precisely wired to the pleasure/relatability-centers of a child's brain (see also: Godzilla).
Yup, saw that episode myself. Dunno the name of the episode but I do know that Tony Stark gave Spidey and Co. their tech after defeating the Beetle.tanatoes said:Am I imagining things or didn't all of Spidey's crime-fighting stuff come from millionaire Tony Stark, who he had saved at some point? I seem to vaguely recall finding it funny at the time that Tony was bankrolling Spiderman's lair but never admitted to any of the guys that he was a super hero too.
Also LOVED the reverse prejudice when the trio met the X-Men and it was explained that Spidey couldn't be an X-Man because he isn't a mutant. That blew my teenaged mind.
