    Miss Marvel saying "Taskmaster? Awesome!" was totally me.

    The interaction between her and Vision not getting her references was cool.

    "the answer should be 616"

    The top of the pyramid flying off reminded me of a GI Joe comic from 30+ years ago.

    Overall really liked it as a Miss Marvel/ Vision focused episode.

    Best episode of the batch. Taskmaster was actually a really cool guest star, and he, Ms. Marvel, and Vision had some fun dialogue. M.O.D.O.K. isn't the most exciting villain, but whatever, he was just the vehicle for a fun space adventure.

    All these scenes with Kamala at school and they couldn't show at least someone from her supporting cast in the comics? Even in a cameo o_O?

    It was cool to see Taskmaster play such a big role in this episode. The cartoons' takes on him has probably been one of their stronger adaptions, dating back to Ultimate Spider-Man, so it's always great when he shows up somewhere and as always accompanied by Clancy Brown's memorable voice :cool:.

    I'm disappointed that we didn't get a fight between Taskmaster and Black Panther. You have two expert, hand-to-hand, combatants and you never have them fight one another? For shame :rolleyes:.

    It was interesting seeing Ms. Marvel stuck between two mentors, essentially, in Vision and Taskmaster and how that impacted her and how she in turn impacted them :).

    After all the times MODOK's AIM goons have been easily dispatched by the Avengers, I'm not surprised to see him finally just move on to using robots for hencheman. Especially robots programmed to fight like Taskmaster :eek:.

    MODOK's moon base, I just...it's so MODOK :p.

    Y'know, if the Watcher wasn't probably under an FF-embargo (even though the MCU have featured them) it would've been nice to see him reacting to MODOK being on the moon alongside him :rolleyes2:.

    I understood the show's intentions with Kamala tearing up the work Taskmaster did for her, but after he went to the trouble of helping her out, it felt kind of spiteful for her to do that :sad:.

    I think I ended up liking this one the most. Maybe because out of everyone Ms. Marvel's my favorite member.

    It's cute how well she got along with Taskmaster. Some of the Vision stuff was cute, but the whole "robot not understanding slang" thing was a bit ho-hum.

    Wasn't a fan of this Taskmaster. He's an awesome character (too hard for me to learn in Marvel vs. Capcom 3) but his appearance...made no sense. Why not send an email about MODOK's plan? If he attempted to betray the Avengers and steal something that would have been better but he just felt thrown in on this episode.

    He's still cool and had great lines. Loved his voice.

    I forgot to mention in my review, but yeah, I felt the same. And she did it right in front of him, too.

    Obviously, cheating is wrong, but it was pretty harsh.

    Of course, she is a teen, so I guess she can get away with it. :p

    Taskmaster was pretty cool. I liked how he and Vision acted as mentors to Ms. Marvel in this episode and while she did pick up a few tricks from Taskmaster, it was fairly obvious she wouldn't be completely corrupted by him in the end.

    MODOK was alright and his plan was kind of interesting. The NODOKs and MOON-DOK base were a little too silly for me (or at least their names). But overall, I liked the episode.
