'''{{sm}}''' is a series that ran starting starting November 19, 1994 and ending January 31, 1998. It is the fourth to focus on the wallcrawler after {{sm67}}, {{sm81}}, and {{smaf}}. It is the second longest running series based on a [[Marvel Comics]] property after only {{xm}}, which exists in the same [[Marvel Animated Universe|continuity]].
+
'''{{hv}}''' is the sixth animated feature from [[Marvel Animation]] and [[Lions Gate Home Entertainment]], released on January 27, 2009. It contains two separate features, {{hvw}} and {{hvt}}. It is part of an [[Christopher Yost Animated Universe|animated universe]] that includes {{wxm}}, {{aemh}}, and {{tta}}.
   
The show followed the life of Peter Parker as [[Spider-Man]] (voiced by [[Christopher Daniel Barnes]]). After the death of his [[Ben Parker|Uncle Ben]] ([[Brian Keith]]), Peter struggles to balance his [[superhero]] life and personal life with his [[May Parker|Aunt May]] (Linda Gary and Julie Bennett), girlfriend [[Black Cat|Felicia Hardy]] ([[Jennifer Hale]]), eventual wife [[Mary Jane Watson]] ([[Sara Ballantine]]), and best friend [[Harry Osborn]] (Gary Imhoff). He fights classic villains such as [[Shocker]] ([[Jim Cummings]]), [[Kingpin]] ([[Roscoe Lee Browne]]), [[Vulture]] (Allen Johnson and Eddie Albert), and [[Doctor Octopus]] ([[Efrem Zimbalist Jr.]]) as well as then-recent characters such as [[Venom]] ([[Hank Azaria]]), [[Hobgoblin]] ([[Mark Hamill]]), and [[Carnage]] ([[Scott Cleverdon]]). He would team up with the [[Fantastic Four]], the [[X-Men]] (featuring the cast of {{xm}}), [[Nick Fury]] (Phil Abbot) and [[S.H.I.E.L.D.]], [[Prowler]] ([[Tim Russ]]), [[Captain America]] ([[David Hayter]]), [[War Machine]] ([[James Avery]]) and [[Iron Man]] ([[Robert Hays]], both reprising their roles from {{im}}). The show adapted stories including ''The Kid Who Collects Spider-Man'', ''[[Secret Wars]]'', and the controversial ''Clone Saga''. He even traveled to the "real world" to meet [[Stan Lee]].
+
The project came about when [[Frank Paur]] suggested having {{C|Hulk|hv}} fight {{C|Wolverine|hv}}. It was eventually expanded to include a fight between Hulk and {{C|Thor|hv}}. While the previous feature {{naht}} was designed to appeal to younger audiences, ''Hulk Vs'' was to appeal to hardcore fans. One of the appeals of releasing directly to DVD is that it allowed the producers to be more violent than they could be in other forms of media, and each video ended up with a PG-13 rating.
   
The series came about when Marvel Comics was facing financial problems. [[Avi Arad]] started [[Marvel Films Animation]] to bring characters to animation and hired [[John Semper, Jr.]] to be story editor after a previous editor failed to work out. The two clashed on the direction of the show, but Semper won after arguing that a quality show would sell toys anyways. Semper had great freedom when it came to guest stars and included characters such as [[Punisher]] (John Beck), [[Blade]] (James Donald Hall), [[Doctor Strange]] ([[John Vernon]]), and [[Madame Web]] (Joan Lee). He used season long story arcs, against direct orders since that was something not being done in a children's show. Despite being top in the ratings, the show was eventually cancelled because of a disagreement between Arad and head of [[Fox Kids]] [[Margaret Loesch]].
+
In {{hvw}}, {{C|Department H|hv}} sends Wolverine ([[Steven Blum]]) after the newly emerged Hulk ([[Fred Tatasciore]]) when a town is destroyed. He travels across the Canadian Rockies and begins a brutal showdown. However, the two are captured by {{C|Team X|hv}} and taken to the {{C|Weapon X|hv}} facility. Logan recounts how he was brainwashed and bonded with adamantium before learning that Weapon X is trying to control Hulk. Wolverine escapes and finds {{C|Bruce Banner|hv}} (Bryce Johnson). He forces the doctor to transform so that Hulk beats Team X and destroys the facility. Wolverine and Hulk then resume their battle.
   
The show as a hit in the ratings. The episode {{eps|Day of the Chameleon}} won an Annie Award for Best Individual Achievement for Writing in the Field of Animation. The series won a NAACP Image Award for Outstanding Animated/Live Action/Dramatic Youth or Children's Series/Special. The show had a major impact on the comics and subsequent adaptations, most notably with the [[Venom Symbiote]]. Before, the symbiote just gave Spider-Man unlimited [[Web Fluid|webbing]]. Afterwards the comics, films, and other series included the aspect that the symbiote increased his aggressive side. In fact, the film ''Spider-Man 3'' included a recreated shot from {{eps|The Alien Costume, Part One}}. Other aspects include making [[Green Goblin]] an alternate personality to [[Norman Osborn]] who actually communicates with and demeans his other self. Additionally, the series finale featured a story of Spider-Man traveling to an alternate universe to team up with several other [[Spider-Men]] to stop an evil version of [[Spider-Carnage|himself]]. A similar story was used in the video game ''Spider-Man: Shattered Dimensions'', the comic story ''Spider-Verse'', and Oscar-winning film {{smitsv}}.

In {{hvt}}, {{C|Odin|hv}} ([[French Tickner]]) has entered the {{C|Odinsleep|hv}} and Thor ([[Matthew Wolf]]) leads the defense of {{C|Asgard|hv}}. {{C|Loki|hv}} ([[Graham McTavish]]) and {{C|Amora|hv}} ([[Kari Wahlgren]]) bring Bruce to their realm and separate Bruce and Hulk. Loki takes control of the brute and uses it to storm his way towards Odin. However, he loses control and the mindless giant begins battling every entity in Asgard to destroy Odin. Thor teams up with {{C|Sif|hv}} ([[Grey Griffin|Grey DeLisle]]), {{C|Balder|hv}} (Michael Adamthwaite), the {{C|Warriors Three|hv}}, Amora, and Loki to stop Hulk. Thor and Loki then travel to {{C|Hel|hv}} to get {{C|Hela|hv}} ([[Janyse Jaud]]) to give up Bruce's soul, after Loki killed the mortal. After wanting to remain free, Bruce agrees to rebond with Hulk to save Asgard and is then sent to {{C|Midgard|hv}}. Odin wakes and thanks Bruce for saving the Gods.

Reviews for the movies were positive. The two, particularly {{hvw}}, have been cited as some of the best direct-to-video animated features from either [[Marvel Comics]] and DC Comics. ''Wolverine'' has fared slightly better than ''Thor''. Critics felt that ''Thor'' had a better story with more character development, though it required more knowledge of the Thor comics and was not quite as fun as ''Wolverine''. Critics applauded ''Wolverine'' for delivering action that has been unseen on television or live-action superheroes, but claimed the Weapon X story took away from the title fight. {{C|Deadpool|hv}}, in his first actual animated appearance, and his voice actor [[Nolan North]] has been praised as the breakout character.

Hulk Reflection Wolverine Claws HV

Hulk Vs is the sixth animated feature from Marvel Animation and Lions Gate Home Entertainment, released on January 27, 2009. It contains two separate features, Hulk vs Wolverine and Hulk vs Thor. It is part of an animated universe that includes Wolverine and the X-Men, The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and Thor: Tales of Asgard.

The project came about when Frank Paur suggested having Hulk fight Wolverine. It was eventually expanded to include a fight between Hulk and Thor. While the previous feature Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow was designed to appeal to younger audiences, Hulk Vs was to appeal to hardcore fans. One of the appeals of releasing directly to DVD is that it allowed the producers to be more violent than they could be in other forms of media, and each video ended up with a PG-13 rating.

In Hulk vs Wolverine, Department H sends Wolverine (Steven Blum) after the newly emerged Hulk (Fred Tatasciore) when a town is destroyed. He travels across the Canadian Rockies and begins a brutal showdown. However, the two are captured by Team X and taken to the Weapon X facility. Logan recounts how he was brainwashed and bonded with adamantium before learning that Weapon X is trying to control Hulk. Wolverine escapes and finds Bruce Banner (Bryce Johnson). He forces the doctor to transform so that Hulk beats Team X and destroys the facility. Wolverine and Hulk then resume their battle.

In Hulk vs Thor, Odin (French Tickner) has entered the Odinsleep and Thor (Matthew Wolf) leads the defense of Asgard. Loki (Graham McTavish) and Amora (Kari Wahlgren) bring Bruce to their realm and separate Bruce and Hulk. Loki takes control of the brute and uses it to storm his way towards Odin. However, he loses control and the mindless giant begins battling every entity in Asgard to destroy Odin. Thor teams up with Sif (Grey DeLisle), Balder (Michael Adamthwaite), the Warriors Three, Amora, and Loki to stop Hulk. Thor and Loki then travel to Hel to get Hela (Janyse Jaud) to give up Bruce's soul, after Loki killed the mortal. After wanting to remain free, Bruce agrees to rebond with Hulk to save Asgard and is then sent to Midgard. Odin wakes and thanks Bruce for saving the Gods.

Reviews for the movies were positive. The two, particularly Hulk vs Wolverine, have been cited as some of the best direct-to-video animated features from either Marvel Comics and DC Comics. Wolverine has fared slightly better than Thor. Critics felt that Thor had a better story with more character development, though it required more knowledge of the Thor comics and was not quite as fun as Wolverine. Critics applauded Wolverine for delivering action that has been unseen on television or live-action superheroes, but claimed the Weapon X story took away from the title fight. Deadpool, in his first actual animated appearance, and his voice actor Nolan North has been praised as the breakout character.
