    He also appears to no longer be a decendent of Tony Stark. Maybe those RUMORS about Disney in talks to buy FOX Studios are true, LOL.

    I don't think the idea of Kang being a descendant of Tony is something the writers were really all that serious about, or had anything to do with the possible Fox buyout, otherwise they would've emphasized it more.

    Rudimentary 30th Century tech. Not as good as the ones from the 41st Century.

    On the previous thread, the idea of Shuri being voiced by Cree Summers was brought up, I personally think she'd be more suited to voice Riri Williams.

    I think Masasa Moyo would make more sense for Riri, personally.

    I didn't say that Kang being Tony Stark's descendant when he first appeared last season had anything to do with Disney possibly buying FOX. I was saying that Kang being made Tony's descendant had everything to do with the fact that Disney/Marvel didn't have the movie rights to all of the FF characters. In other words, the writers weren't allowed to either use or mention any FF or related characters that Disney/Marvel didn't have the movie rights to. So they couldn't mention that Kang was the descendant of one of Reed Richard's half siblings that his father had in an alternate timeline.

    They didn't even outright make him a Tony Stark descendant. I recall Tony just brought that up to mess with Kang, it wasn't a serious plot point.

    I mean, Earth's Mightiest Heroes didn't even go into Kang's background at all, so I don't think it's really that big of a deal.

    IIRC, they flat out stated that Kang was a descendant of Tony Stark.

    I really don't remember that at all. At most they floated the idea around, but that's about it.

    Nope. Tony just brought up the whole connection to Kang just to irk him. As far as any actual connection, there was nothing I found in the episodes themselves (via transcripts) that gave confirmation.

    Judging by the descriptions:

    - Looks like we're getting a Dr. Strange two-parter with "The Eye of Agamotto." It feels like it's been a while since we've seen Strange in a cartoon, so that should be fun, though I hope against hope Dormammu won't end up being the villain again :sweat:.

    - "Beyond" seems like it's going to introduce the Beyonders and kick start the actual Secret Wars storyline :cool:.

    - I'm guessing "Underworld" is the Monster Underworld? I believe that was one of the Battelworld worlds :).

    - "The Immortal Weapon" is probably a K'un-Lun world. I wonder if Iron Fist will show up :D?

    - "Vibranium Coast" is likely a Wakandan-based world, so I imagine Black Panther will probably have a leading role in this. Maybe we'll finally see some of his supporting cast in-time for Panther's Quest next season :rolleyes2:?

    I'm guessing in the "Eye of Agamotto" two-parter we'll be introduced to the Black Priests; who were the multiverse's defense against the "Incursions". It would be fitting, since we appear to be leading into the Secret Wars/Battleworld part of the season.

    Hope this show gets a season 6 with the X-Men.

    Let's hope they wouldn't repeat themselves with an "Avengers vs. X-Men" storyline after Civil War :rolleyes2:.

    This sounds a lot like that storyline in Brian Michael Bendis' New Avengers run where the Avengers and Dr. Strange go up against Agamotto/Ancient One :eek:.

    I'm expecting Dr. Strange will show up here so I'm curious to see how they'll depict him in light of his solo film...I hope we're not due another character reboot :sad:.
    Oh hey, Iron Man's finally back! Even though we've already seen him again in the one-off episodes :rolleyes2:.

    I wonder if they'll get Diedrich Bader back as Moon Knight :)?

    Though "mysterious?" Weren't they looking at him to join at the end of season 2 :confused:?
    I wonder why the Bifrost is key to undoing Battleworld? Because it's connected to the Nine Realms o_O?

    I was wondering when Enchantress would make a comeback given she was the only member of the Cabal to escape capture/punishment :evil:.
    "Symbiote-powered Dracula and his vampires?" Yep, this Battleworld is as random as the comics :p.

    I guess the heroes are after Heimdall's sword so they have a means to control the Bifrost :ack:.

    I wonder if they'll get Greg Cipes back as Iron Fist or if he'll be different from the Iron Fist from USM...?
    "Pirate Typhoid Mary" Okay, why not :harley:?

    Red Skull and Crossbones together is classic :cool:.

    Honestly, a lot of these plots remind me of Justice League Action...which is not a bad thing :D.

    These sound like very fun episodes. I look forward to seeing Iron Fist and Dracula return! (Typhoid Mary too if they can build on her character more.)
