Oh thank the stars I wasn't able to see the credits on my DVR recording thanks to Disney XD shrinking them so they can show whatever was coming up next.

Fun, fast-paced, and action-filled. Very cool. This episode has increased my anticipation to see more GOTG.
I am undecided about my feelings pertaining to the end of show swerve with Nova team membership. Nova staying keeps the team together, but Nova leaving might have opened up other possibilities.
I did appreciate the cutaway scene alluding to The Empire Strikes Back.
Neat to see Chris Cox as Star Lord, but it's weird that they also had him voice Cap albeit a Cap in Spidey's imagination. They couldn't get Roger Craig Smith to do it? It would've been funnier if they had done Hawkeye considering Chris Cox's past with the character.
I forget this show is on half the time. I found it extremely telling that Ultimate Spiderman has his head so far up his own butt that he never paid attention all the times Nova told him about the Guardians. Nova coming back spoiled the emotional ending with the Guardians. I'm sick and tired of all these Ultimate Spidey/teammate duos episodes. This show still can't decide what it wants to be. It has Spidey as a part of a team, but we never get to learn anything about the team because Spidey never shuts up. If the entire team is together in an episode, 4 out of 5 times they'll all be taken out so that Spidey can save the day. I keep wanting to learn more about Luke Cage, Iron Fist, White Tiger, and Nova but we never will because the format of the show is all Ultimate Spiderman, all the time. The producers clearly don't care about the rest of the team as they are all C listers. I didn't care for the "I Am Groot" jokes either. I hate when a show tries to force its humor.
As amusing as Peter's interactions were with Rocket at the beginning, I thought the first act was slow and robbed us of some cool Guardian interaction and backstory. Still kind of confused about where Sam came from, if he has any living family, why he's in high school now, etc. The team did look cool, although when Groot was introduced, he was just...there.
The action did manage to be really cool, although the ending didn't fool me at all, as I expected Nova to come back for whatever reason.
