Avengers Assemble! Episode 1: Healthcare

Avengers Assemble! Episode 1: Healthcare

Episode 1 of the parody series, Avengers Assemble! In this inaugural episode, Tony Stark (aka Iron Man) leads the team in a discussion of the ramifications of the new Healthcare Bill recently passed.

The Avengers Assemble tweaks the Marvel Universe by introducing real-world politics (the health care overhaul, BP oil spill, conflict in the Middle East), and running them through a filter of inane office board room chatter, all staged as a prelude to an ass-kicking.

The hilarity of series lives somewhere between the minutiae of office politics and the absurdity of the comic universe in which Scarlet Witch asks, “Does the new health care cover an android common law husband?” or Ms. Marvel uses the Kree-Skrull Warras an analogy for the Israeli/Palestinian conflict. And what fun Abbot & Costello could have had with the double entendre “death panels.”
