Marvel’s Hit-Monkey might be a new take at introducing Marvel’s comics to the screens, but it already has something interesting to it.
Being the second Marvel Television animated series in the last couple of years, I was honestly skeptical about the show. I didn’t really like M.O.D.O.K. and couldn’t really watch more than a couple of episodes. So, you can understand my hesitation to watch Hit-Monkey.
However, I have to say that this show is way better. Yes, having a squeaking monkey as the main character was a bit of a challenge to follow, but something was working for me. Who wouldn’t like to watch a vengeful Japanese snow monkey and the ghost of an American assassin cut down Tokyo’s underworld?
Should you watch it?
You’ll be surprised by Hit-Monkey. I sure was. But your enjoyment of the show largely depends on how much you enjoy Jason Sudeikis’ non-stop, juvenile, party-bro-patter. For a character that is a frequent collaborator for Deadpool and Spider-Man, Hit-Monkey deserved a better on-screen start.
