From Animation Magazine:
A customizable, interactive virtual assistant called Pocket Baymax launches on DisneyNOW the same day. Need more digital incentive? Two full-length episodes of Big Hero 6: The Series will debut exclusively on DisneyNOW and Disney XD VOD immediately after the movie airs, ahead of its official broadcast premiere in early 2018. Starting Nov. 24, a series of shorts will rollout each Friday for six weeks on Disney XD, the app and the network’s YouTube channel. An international TV rollout for the whole lot will occur throughout 2018.

Here's the log-line for "Baymax Returns", from the Disney Press website:
Set in the fictional city of San Fransokyo, 14-year-old tech genius Hiro begins school as the new prodigy at San Fransokyo Institute of Technology and sets off to rebuild Baymax. However, his overconfidence and penchant for taking shortcuts leads him and the newly minted Big Hero 6 team – Wasabi, Honey Lemon, Go Go and Fred – into trouble.
Both parts have the same synopsis. Interesting to note the production codes for the premiere are 104 & 105.

It's interesting how the Khary Payton interview mentions how the cast usually doesn't together. That is at least the fourth Disney show Lisa Schaffer is the voice director of where the cast doesn't always record together. The other three are Kim Possible, Phineas And Ferb, and Miles From Tomorrowland.

According to Zap2It, the show returns on March 1st. You'd have to check the Episode Guide tab, I can't seem to be able to link directly to it.
Baron Von Steamer was the villain from one of the first teaser's, so I'm guessing that was from this episode ;).

"Bro-Tillion." Well, I guess it fits with Fred being a rich dude :p.

More episode scheduled for March, according to Zap2It:
I guess one flaw of fighting crime with a purse is you run the risk of a purse-snatcher grabbing it and getting access to all your crazy Superhero stuff in said purse :sweat:.

A Go-Go and Fred team-up involving comics sounds fun, and High-Voltage sounds like they'll be a lot of fun too ;).
The mother-daughter aspect of High Voltage reminded me of Bombshell.
From Ultimate Spider-Man? I can see it :D.
When I saw the name Baron Von St---, my brain went somewhere different than Steamer.
Hopefully Baron Von Steamer will get more screentime then MCU Baron Strucker :ack:.

I'm guessing that we probably won't see any 1:1 pastiches but we'll have to wait and see if any villains are clearly inspired by someone else. The Kim Possible series had a lot of fun villains that I thought felt pretty original to themselves.

I think any show that's a relatively original Superhero property runs the risk of whatever Rogues Gallery they come up with having similarities to villains from the Big Two, given how prolific they are.
