    Why would someone ask a random comic specific question?

    I don't think we should be surprised that Doom won't be showing up in Secret Wars.

    I wonder who will be the main villain this season?

    Most likely either a movie version of Zemo or Kang.

    Yeah, I hope if Zemo is redesigned to look like his movie counterpart, His costume can be similar to the one in Civil War concept Art.

    Well, Zemo seemed set to become a good guy in his last appearance, so I doubt he's just going to jump back into being a villain again unless they plan out a major arc for him (which I doubt) o_O.

    We know Kang is going to show up in the Peggy Carter episode, but it sounds like that might be a one-off episode, and this version of Kang doesn't strike me as the type to carry a season as the main villain unless he really upgrades himself since the last we saw of him :shrug:.

    They could just use the Beyonder or the Beyonders race as the main villains. I'd be curious to see what their take on them would be like compared to the comics :ack:.

    Episode was literally. "Zemo you've committed numerous acts of terrorism and tried to kill us multiple times but your dad hurt your feelings so we forgive you."

    Isn't redemption great :p?

    Though, as I've said before, the real disappointing part about it is that Zemo was probably the strongest villain the show's ever had and then they had him turn away from villainy in his fourth appearance :sad:.

    Agreed 200%. Zemo was this show's most interesting villain. He was hammy but dynamic and intelligent. He consistently outfought Black Widow and he one of the few characters that was a threat on this show. I hope they bring him back.

    That's what I thought since the season is subtitled Secret Wars.
    That's true (besides Dr. Doom in season one perhaps), but I feel like I'd prefer they used the character well in his few appearances rather than feel overused or poorly utilized. Anyway, perhaps we can see some new enemies or returning foes like Yelena Belova, Mandarin, Ghost, Winter Soldier, Enchantress, etc.

    Maybe there's something to be said for how cycling through major villains after small arcs might work better then having just one, overbearing, overarching villain for an entire season :ack:.

    I was wondering if we would ever see Winter Soldier again after Bucky was relegated to just a flashback in Ultron Revolution and Steve seemed to forget him when calling Tony his "best friend I've ever had" in the finale :sweat:.

    The question is referring to the Avengers Trinity, I imagine, of Cap, Iron Man, and Thor, but I'm actually wondering if Assemble has ever really emphasized all three together or had an episode that featured just them o_O...

    I'm probably one of three people actually curious about what's going on with Tony's company while he's stuck in the Dark Dimension, but I also know that there's very little chance the show will actually deal with or address it :(.

    Who's a "classic Captain Marvel villain" if we're looking at Carol's tenure, which hasn't really been that long? Yon-Rogg? Who coincidentally is also a Mar-Vell villain :rolleyes2:.

    Wacker saying that he considers Carol Danvers to be the "classic Captain Marvel" was clearly a comment made out of synergy, LOL.

    That, and he has a personal investment in Carol as Captain Marvel since he oversaw her taking that mantle in the comics :).

    A comic that sells poorly and has been cancelled numerous times since they started calling her "Captain Marvel" (her book was never a huge seller even when she was still called "Ms Marvel) and made her the greatest and most popular superhero in the MU.

    Well, some of that came after his tenure...:sweat:

    But it started with his tenure as editor. Again, it's not really his fault since Carol's solo books have never sold all that well.
