    + Star Lord's origin following the comics.
    + Drax mentioning his family could mean Moon Dragon

    - Thanos seems like an incredibly cliched Saturday Morning villain
    - Gamora is clearly going to be a space filler like Black Widow.
    - Still feels way to much like the movie and not original enough

    The clip was OK. Will Friedle is always awesome (though he seemed to be channeling Ron Stoppable towards the end of that scene), and Drax seems like he could be given an engaging sub-plot.

    Thanos did come across as pretty hammy, though, which is concerning.

    Man, I almost forgot that Korvac was in USM. I'm actually kinda excited to see him, but he's one of those characters that has to be handled very carefully.

    So they are bringing back Korvac? Interesting. I wonder if they'll get back James Marsters and have him still commanding the Chitauri?

    Would probably be a little more excited about this if they started developing him into Cosmic-God Korvac :cool:.

    Same guy.

    Or do you mean "what's up with him?" According to the article, it will be a time-travel story.

    Who says he won't be? In USM, it could have been after a long period of time where he lost his legs and depended on technology to keep him alive, which drained his powers.

    That would be awesome. He was a man who abused and when he gains his freedom, he oppresses others. That is so deep and depressingly common in the real world.

    I don't see this hamminess from Thanos. Heck, I wish he was more hammy if anything. He comes off as a boring conquerer who conquers because why not.

    He doesn't have the ferocity or cold intelligence of TF:prime Megatron, Black Beetle or Azula but he isn't as freakishly destructive as say Doomsday. He's in that boring middle so far, even in AA where I found the Black Order more interesting than Thanos.

    I think Isaac Singleton Jr. does the best with the material he's given and the way he's directed...but MAU Thanos just sort of lacks the gravitas and and the thematic tone of his comic counterpart to really make the performance memorable in my opinion :(.

    He's totally got the menace and baritone down though ;).

    So, it seems like Marvel Animation really did decide to pattern their Thanos after the one from the movies?

    Sad realization: MCU Yellowjacket seemed more menacing to me from one appearance than MCU Thanos did from three.

    Well, Yellowjacket/Cross at least got to actually do something instead of making threats and talk like Thanos like MCU!Thanos has been stuck with in his status as the Bigger Bad of the films which seems to be reflected in the Guardians cartoon.

    Then again, if we take this in continuity with Assemble, he's done a lot more to warrant being seen as this big, grand, threat than MCU thanos :p.

    Y'know who would've made an awesome animated Thanos? Keith David :cool:.

    We haven't seen very much of Thanos yet, so hard to judge.

    Now see, I agree somewhat: in the films, we haven't seen enough of him, but I'm confident that once he does get to do stuff, he'll probably look really impressive, especially if they're borrowing from Infinity Gauntlet (seriously, I can't recommend that comic enough).

    As for the Marvel cartoons, the problem is, he's decent, but being on Disney XD really limits what they can do with him. Darkseid was a beast in the Bruce Timm DCAU, but if the show had aired today on XD, I doubt he'd be half as cool.

    If you watch/have watched the whole episode, she at least plays a much larger role than Drax does. Whether or not she has more personality than Black Widow did in Avengers Assemble, I can't confirm, since I never saw AA.
