    A new thread deserves to start with excellent artwork!

    TN Perkins has done it again, this time with Hulk and Crystar!

    The greenman posted:

    "Both ROM and Silver Surfer would be welcome appearances this season. I wonder if MARVEL has rights to SS since they have rights to the FF. Even a Namor Atlantis Attacks story would be great to see in a future season, I just don't know if they have those rights. "

    If you're worried about rights issues, you're looking at the wrong character.

    Silver Surfer appeared in SuperHeroSquad with the other characters; I really don't see how the rights issue would have changed since then.

    Now ROM is the one who has the rights issue. I believe his rights are owned by Parker Brothers (who made the ROM toy). There's a reason why you haven't seen ROM in any new stories or even reprints from Marvel in the past several years.

    If Galactus does appear later in the season, perhaps the Silver Surfer will make an appearance as well. I just hope if this is indeed the final season it goes out with a bang that will reverberate for some time.

    Good to hear that about the Surfer, though I suspected that since FF and him on basically tied. It would make sense for him to show up if Galactus does cause he's the herald. That is crazy about ROM, seems like alot of those Marvel comics were owned by toy companies like Micronauts.

    Welp, looks like Disney XD is airing episodes out of order again. "Who Do You Trust?" is airing before "The Ballad of Beta Ray Bill", when it should be the other way around. Hopefully, it won't mess too much with continuity.

    Why is it that there won't be an episode on May 27th? This isn't a sign of a hiatus starting already, is it? After a 10 month hiatus or whatever it was, another one after just 8 episodes would be outrageous.

    I believe that's Memorial Day weekend and maybe Disney believes people will be away that weekend and a significant portion of their audience won't be around.

    Or equally likely they'll have some sort of marathon for some show. Either way, makes sense to preempt Avengers.

    Anyways, I love that the second verse of the theme also seems to pertain to specific Avengers. I just wonder which is which!

    Tormented and attacked (The Hulk)
    lost from when we wake (Captain America)
    with no way to go back (Thor)
    I'm standing on my own / but now I'm not alone (Iron Man)


    Too small to turn the tide (Ant-Man)
    too stubborn to give in (Hawkeye or Wasp?)
    pushed by pain and pride (Black Panther or Hawkeye?)
    to face these fears and win (Whoever is left?)

    Anyone else have guesses?

    I hate it when that happens. :mad: It's stupid that they can't get the airing order right.

    Too small to turn the tide (Ant-Man)
    too stubborn to give in (Hawkeye)
    pushed by pain and pride (Black Panther)
    to face these fears and win (Wasp)

    At least that's my take on it (Remember in the comic when Wasp admitted she was afraid?).


    Hahaha! Poor Iron Man. :D Ready to kick some butt, only to discover that The Avengers have a truce with Zemo. BTW, the Mark 9 armor looks great! Cool to see that will be his official armor for the rest of the Season (at least, I think it will be).

    An interesting gambit, to be sure!

    Hmmm... I may not see any new characters. I might have to make someone from season one I haven't done yet as a microhero... or maybe do the Super-Skrull. I wonder of we'll see any other of the named skrulls - Thanos had a few in his service, for example.

    'Too stubborn to give in' might be Wasp because she's very tenacious and chirpy where the Avengers are concerned, despite her size and the fact that she'd be a nobody in the superhero biz if not for Hank's tech.

    'To face these fears and win' could be Hawkeye since he expresses his reservations about the Avengers at the beginning of "Masters of Evil". He does initially have that fear and unease that the team is a disaster waiting to happen, and he kind of fights that impulse by giving in and giving the team a chance.

    Nice! He looks great! :D

    I just saw him in Planet Hulk (along with Thor in a very nice cameo. Actually, that entire movie was filled with tons of cameos, all of which pleased me greatly. :anime:) and he was a bad-ass with a really cool voice. I hope Dobson will voice him again.
