    Nice to see I'm not the only one who finds her attractive. Y'know, for her age...

    Anthony has always liked older women... of course, being eight years old, almost all of them are...

    This was a good episode. I'm not really familiar with Taskmaster, since the only comics I read with him in it are an issue of Cable & Deadpool and Avengers Academy where he's possibly the father of one of the characters. He was pretty badass here, and he looked and sounded very menacing. Hopefully we get to see more of him in the future.

    White Tiger was also more likable here than she's been in the show so far, hopefully they stick with this character growth.

I'm strictly talking Marvel cartoons, but X-Men TAS did Scott/Jean/Logan and of course had Rogue and Gambit, Spider-Man TAS juggled many women, and both series had weddings. Fantastic Four had no less than three couples, Iron Man had Julia/Tony/Wanda and then just Tony and Julia, Silver Surfer was basically motivated by the thought that he was going to get back to his love Shalla Bal, etc.
    I don't know, X-Men: Evolution had it's fair share of romance, as did Spectacular Spider-Man, Wolverine and the X-Men, with the Jean/Cyclops/Wolverine stuff and Wolverine/Mystique, the 2003 Spider-Man featured a lot of romance plots, so I think that Fantastic Four: WGH might be the only relatively recent Marvel toon that didn't have much romance stuff going on.

The most common bullying though is through words, pranks, or online which all are far less obvious than trying to shove a kid into a locker or something. Flash's bullying in SSM, while not going into the online aspect, is far more realistic than his bullying has been in USM so far.
    Like I said some stereotypes die hard.

    Hmm, romance may not be the right word. Yeah, there's always love interests and pairings and triangles, but because most of the characters in the shows you've mentioned are so young, there's only so far their relationships can go. Most of the 90's toons either had a marriage, or at the very least, a proposal.

    True, and in most of those 90s shows the characters were clearly older; in the X-Men series Cyclops & Jean both appeared to be in their early 30s, while 90s Spider-Man featured protagonists in their early 20s.

    Of course Evolution dealt with teens and still had a fair amount of romantic subplots. Whether the writers of Ultimate Spider-Man have any grand designs for that remains to be seen.

    Yeah, ultimately, I hold out as much hope for Peter/Mary Jane in Ultimate Spider-Man as I do for Tony/Pepper in Iron Man: Armored Adventures. In other words, not much.

    Kitty and Lance had a great set-up, but they really weren't on the level of the 90's romantic pairings, and since then, I don't have high expectations when it comes to teen heroes.

    I seem to remember reading that the WB Kids execs told the Evolution guys not to go real deep with the romantic subplots, since they figured their target audience (little boys) wouldn't be interested in that. Of course, these same execs said they didn't want Wolverine to be featured as prominently as he usually is because they seriously figured little kids wouldn't be interested in him since he was an adult (and as someone who never liked Wolverine much I'm grateful for that).
