When two Hydra scientists try to supercharge a Stark Arc Reactor with Hulk's Gamma Energy, they unleash a being of pure electricity called Zzzax - and he's hungry for destruction. Together, Iron Man and Hulk are the only force that stands in the way of the Zzzax's planetary blackout. But first, the super heroic duo will have to get through snarling Wendigos, deadly robots and the scaly powerhouse, Abomination. Can two of Marvel's mightiest heroes find a way to work together without smashing each other before time runs out? Written by

This is am animated action thrill ride. Marvel heroes Ironman (Adrian Pasdar) and Hulk (Fred Tatasciore) battle a new villain named Zzzax (Dee Bradley Baker). However these two Characters have a long road ahead of them to become an unstoppable team.
What is very unique about this film is the animation. When an action scene happens we see fantastic effects, like the dust when a character falls. They have bright blues and reds in this and it's electrifying. The writing is comic book style, we have the hero say a witty remark then, they fight, only to say another witty remark. It brings audiences back to the good old days of comic book lines and it's perfect for this setting. The characters are well established. Whenever you get two well known characters together, you get to experience entertaining interactions. My favorite character is Ironman / Tony Stark (Adrian Pasdar). He's a crime fighting, egotistical, billionaire. I enjoy Starks personality - a guy who is so full of himself and yet so likable. Plus when he has the Mark VII Iron suit on he's a powerful ally.
My favorite scene is when Hulk and Ironman battle Zzzax for the last time. This is your big ending battle that every super hero fan looks forward to. It's everything I dreamed it would be and more. Also to top it all up, Hulk wears an Ironman Suit.
The message of the story is, "Two heads are better than one." Hulk and Tony don't get along at first and they don't work well together. Half the time Hulk uses Ironman as a club. Soon they learn that they need to work together to conquer villains.
I give it 5 out of 5 stars and recommend this to 5-12 year olds, because the kids will enjoy the action and the funny remarks from the characters. You can call some lines corny, but to me it reminds me of the comics I know and love. You can get it on DVD now.
