I will mostly be skipping over "Behold the Vision" so I will just say I enjoyed the episode. I was wondering when the Vision would show up, and I was not disappointed. Ultron is back also, and I am curious how he survived his self destruction in season one. I liked Hawkeye's verbal sniping at Black Panther, and like all of you, I was happy to see the shield has been repaired.
"Behold the Vision" was also the final episode before Jeph Loeb took charge. So let's move on to the first episode written by Man of Action, "Powerless."
This. Is. Going. To. Be. Painful.
Enchantress approaches Loki in his torture prison and offers him his freedom if he destroys Thor. To that end, she casts a spell on Captain America, Thor, and Iron Man that removes their powers. The spell will only be restored if .........
WHAT?!?!?!?!!?!?! The spell only lasts until the cursed finds INNER STRENGTH? Of all the cheesey LAME OVERDONE SATURDAY MORNING SPECIALS!!!!!!!! Thank you, Man of Action. CAP SHOULD HAVE REVERTED IMMEDIATELY, considering the Strength he showed in "Along Came A Spider". COME ON!
Well, I guess only Thor is the one who needs to learn humility and inner strength. WHAT THE FUCK!? Thor was willing to GIVE UP HIS HAMMER to BETA RAY BILL because he felt Bill NEEDED it MORE! How MUCH MORE CHARACTER DOES HE NEED TO SHOW? IT'S FRICKIN' MJOLNIR! This is the sort of Thor story you do in season one. Which…THEY ALREADY DID. THOR'S HUBRIS is WHAT PUT LOKI IN POWER IN ASGARD IN THE FIRST PLACE.
AND ANOTHER THING!!!!! IRON MAN'S ARMOR? REALLY? YOU DO KNOW THAT HE HAS MORE SUITS, RIGHT?
If they're going to take away Tony's science skills, why didn't Hawkeye get hit and loose his depth perception?
Oh…Really? Loki? Ending on a cliched villain line? YOU'RE BETTER THAN THAT!!!!
Yeah... remember, Jeph Loeb called "Man of Action" the best in the animation field. Not Chris Yost. Not Josh Fine. Not Greg Weisman. Not Bruce Timm. Not... shall I keep going?
