When the Hulk is spotted on a destructive rampage in the Canadian wilderness, Nick Fury, director of the organization known as S.H.I.E.L.D., blackmails Wolverine into taking the savage monster down. But as Wolverine confronts the Hulk, he begins to realize all is not as it seems- there is more than one monster on the loose in the wild.

  • Wolverine Vs. Hulk episode is supposed to be a sequel of sorts of the upcoming Hulk Vs. Wolverine straight to DVD release. Problem is if this episode is a reflection of things to come, then disappointment is at hand.moreless

    Understandably Wolverine and the X-Men is a show directed at children. Only problem is when die hard fans who've followed the comics for years hear about an epic match up they look forward to it with excitement. We also knew that when this show was first announced that Wolverine was going to be the focal point, so here's why one of his classical battles has been brought in. The upcoming Hulk Vs. Wolverine DVD was done because this classic encounter wasn't for the kiddies... I'm not expecting blood and carnage everywhere but more of a serious tone than usual, so it was hard to imagine just how good this episode (which events take place after the events in the straight to DVD movie) was going to be. Here goes... Wolvie is recruit by an 'old buddy' (who has a lot of clout) to deal with the Hulk in the Canadian wilderness. Upon arrival he realizes there's more to the story than he was led to believe, but ultimately resolves the problem while creating a hilarious new one.

    The Versus part is why this episode is rated a 7. There isn't much fight between Wolvie and the Hulk, thanks to a third party and the interaction between those two is quite a let down. If the way Wolverine dealt with the Hulk is reflective of the upcoming DVD then I can't imagine how this story is going to pan out over 45 minutes. Of course this is a review of Wolverine and the X-Men, not the DVD movie but still the episode left you wanting more.moreless
  • Hulk?

    Ok it's pretty obvious that this show is mostly dedicated to those that are under 16 yrs old, however fans look into wherever Wolverine, Hulk, X-men and so on, appear, whether it's a kid tv show, movie, etcetera. This is the only time i'll be straight. I am 22 yrs old, and watched 7 episodes so far(yes this one being the last i saw). I'm not exited but i'm not bored either. We don't get to see Hulk pretty often in other animated tv shows, but yes there is a half-hour animated movie Hulk vs Wolverine, so why not use the idea to squeeze it in this show that clearly is a new concept. Wolverine is awesome, only reason i'm watching this series, Hulk is cool too, so put these 2 together and you get a pretty decent and fun episode. So far these series are fun, keep'em coming.moreless
  • Kid service that has the series straying farther away from the X-Men storylines that work best. Besides, the Hulk is a one-note bore.

    I didn't see the recent DVD following the exact same matchup, but i do understand the potential and implications for such a heavy showdown. Two of Marvel's most popular indestructible forces butt heads. And it's a crossover cameo- cool! Except that i find the Hulk to be the most boring, one-dimensional character in all of comics. between all of the beast and monsters this week, and the pirate stuff from last week, the series is straying further and further away from the plot that works best: the govt hunting mutants and hiding in society. This one was too much kiddie fodder with only one cool moment: The grenade in Hulk's mouth.

    Interesting that Bruce banner's likeness closely resembled that of Edward Norton (from the movie)moreless
  • After six amazing episodes, episode seven ends up being a boring Wolverine centered snooze fest

    The seventh episode of Wolverine and the X-Men, serves as a prequel to the upcoming Hulk vs Wolverine movie, but I really didn't care for it. I don't know if it's just that I didn't enjoy seeing The Hulk, or that it was just a Wolverine centered episode. It annoyed the heck out of me that it was only him. Sure the show is called "WOLVERINE and the X-Men" but you know what, AND THE X-MEN, Where are the X-Men? This show is geared towards X-Men fans, so give us what we want. I myself am not a fan of Marvel as a whole, but really just the X-Men. And I hated that they included the Hulk. This episode is so far my least favorite, and I am not eager to see it again any time soon.moreless

  • TRIVIA (2)

    • Goof:
      When the Wendigo is first seen by Wolverine and Bruce Banner, Wolverine comments on how Fury should have sent him in first. Banner walks up behind him, recalling some memories from being the Hulk. When he is seen over Wolverine's shoulder, his glasses are off, but in the next shot, they are back on.

    • First appearance of Hulk, Nick Fury and the Wendigo.

  • QUOTES (1)

  • NOTES (1)


    • This episode draws heavily from Wolverine's first appearance in Incredible Hulk #180. In it, Hulk is battling the Wendigo when Wolverine appears and attacks. Also in this episode, in the flashback to their first fight, you see Wolverine's original costume.
