    Well, I guess it has to be working out in some ways otherwise they wouldn't keep doing it :sweat:.

    If the writing is there, we could have something on par with Black Panther and Hawkeye in EMH ;).
    I also felt reminded of Justice League Action with the featuring of multiple female heroes and villains in "Prison Break" :anime:.
    Granted, we also didn't see Typhoid Mary get captured (or even appear), but she's also in the episode...

    Although I guess it would seem odd to feature Natasha's rival/nemesis with her gone on the show, but I guess I could say the same for the Red Skull :shrug:.

    This might've been a cool opportunity to have Carol fight Moonstone, though I guess they couldn't resist pitting her against a Wonder Woman analogue :rolleyes2:.

    Same here. He's one of the show's strongest villains, so it's good to have him back :D.

    Looks like we'll actually get to see Captain Marvel and Zarda go toe to toe. Hercules is most likely there because of Ares or Pluto. And I hope Hercules stays on the team because I really want to see him, Thor and Hulk have an episode of their own. I can honestly see Hercules fitting in with their rivalry.

    I hope we get a Nighthawk appearance.

    I wonder what Zemo's motivation will be now that he disowned his father.

    If Black Widow was in that prison episode she would solo the team herself by just punching them out.

    If we don't get a full Squadron appearance in the upcoming batch, I imagine we'll see them all on Battleworld ;).

    Yeah, without his daddy issues and Captain America, what is Zemo's motivation? Generically conquer the world :sweat:?

    At least Captain Marvel can sensibly punch above her weight :rolleyes2:.

    I guess Hercules will be introduced as a replacement for Thor, like he initially was in the Avengers comics back in the 60's.

    Assuming he's not just in there for one episode :sweat:.

    But if anyone's going to replace Thor on this roster, it'll probably be Jane. Hercules would probably be more of a Hulk replacement, though Captain Marvel and Vision together probably has the strength-portion of the team covered.

    If Hercules and Jane Foster both join this team will be alot more powerful than the old team being that they already have Captain Marvel and Vision.

    It's cool we're getting a bunch of episodes in a day. I'd prefer a weekly release, but in these days it never hurt to experiment.

    Hopefully yes, but at the moment it seems like Hulk himself will be missing for a while since the show will focus on the "all-new, all-different" Avengers. :p

    I won't miss Jesse Burch that much, but kind of random just recasting the role out-of-the-blue o_O.
    Well, we got a little more with Banner in Ultron Revolution and in Where Monsters Dwell, so I think this might be more of a production thing then a sign that Bruce will have an increased focus.

    I don't really understand what would be the point of seeing more of Banner? Is it for him to build more devices? Because I don't really see what else he would be good for other than turning into the hulk.

    I guess it'd be nice to see them explore the Banner/Hulk dynamic more, but I don't think they would really be able to do much with it at this point :shrug:.

    Banner is a major part of what actually makes the Hulk an interesting character, which is something the show missed in its quest to copy the movies (which is odd because people frequently cite Mark Ruffalo's performance as one of the high points of the Avengers films).

    Without Banner and the pathos, Hulk on this show is just a big, loud idiot who screams and throws tantrums over cookies and pizza. That's mildly amusing in small doses, but is unfortunately pretty much all we ever get.

    Well, I think a part of that was that they just generally didn't write The Hulk that well in the earlier seasons.

    I mean, Banner's appearances in Earth's Mightiest Heroes were pretty sparse, but the Hulk was also portrayed as a nuanced and complex character in his own right and Bruce was still an important factor.

    I also think Gabriel Mann was a much better Bruce Banner VA then Jesse Burch.
