It's horrible. The dialogue and even *jokes* are cringe-worthy.
That whole argument over cookies was so stupid I don't even think the talentless idiots that make Johnny Test would've done it.

Haha but it was Falcons mother“s cookies! I miss Tony“s old voice and Thor“s old look as well the animation "style". It“s of high quality but looks weird somehow. But it“s starting to grow on me a little after all, gotta stay positve!

The animation isn't really high quality at all. You might be getting confused with the new character designs.
But the quality and consistency are horrendous.
I don't have any hopes for this new show getting any better. Not while Loeb and Quesadilla are involved.

I just hope they stay as far away as possible from anything that even remotely brings to mind the Terminator movies or HAL or Battlestar or I,RObot or about a hundred episodes of various tv shows. A.I. run amok is second only to time travel in the pantheon of overused scifi plot devices. They need to make Ultron a real character who just happens to be artificial. I trust Whedon knows this.

there are 2 main versions of her powers:

-reality warping/altering mutant powers

-mutant energy manipulation of chaos magic and probability fields.

Chaos Magic Reality Warping: Scarlet Witch's main power is the superhuman ability to manipulate chaos magic, given to her by the demon Chthon (imprisoned within Wundagore Mountain) when she was born. Her hexes were, by extension, simple, indirect manifestations of this magic, destabilizing probabilities by inducing chaos.
  • Hex Bolts: Initially, the Scarlet Witch had the ability to manipulate probability via her "hexes" (often manifesting physically as "hex spheres" or "hex bolts"). These hexes are relatively short range, and are limited to her line of sight. Casting a hex requires a gesture and concentration on her part, though the gestures are largely a focus for the concentration. Early in her career, her hexes were unconscious on her part, and would be automatically triggered whenever she made a particular gesture, regardless of her intent. These hexes would only manifest "bad luck" effects. She later gained enough control over her powers that her powers only work when she wants them to, and they are not limited to negative effects. She can use her hexes to light flammable objects, contain or remove air from a particular volume, deflect objects, stop the momentum of projectiles, open doors, explode objects, create force fields and deflect magical attacks, molecular composition and physical state of physical objects, negate or distort physical laws, and to cause various forms of energy to spontaneously appear or disappear.

"Natasha is a huge part of the sequel because you do want to concentrate on the people who don't have their own franchises. Although she in 'Cap 2,' [and] she's great. She was the most fun for me because she's not a hero, you know, and it's something that I read—and I feel bad that I can't remember who wrote the book—but it's in one of the books explaining, 'These guys are heroes, you are a spy. It's a different thing—it's a different skill set—and you don't have their moral high ground or any of that good stuff.' And that just makes her so interesting to me. So yeah, the stuff I've got going on with her in the second one is killer."

Thanks for the SW's powers stuff. Really appreciate it.
Gotta say though that doesn't sound good TO ME. Doesn't sound like a character I will enjoy. But I might be surprised.

Loeb only came in during the second season of EMH, which, not surprisingly, wasn't as good. They then canceled it in favor of the new one. Loeb ruins everything nowadays.

I actually thought the second season was better. Sadly it got rushed near the end so they could finish it up.

It was in the latter half of the season where Loeb got involved.

Did anyone remember this episode of Buffy?

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0533446/

Season 5, Episode 15 (I Was Made to Love You)

Quote:
Joyce is nervous and her anxiety is because she is going to date a man called Brian that she has recently met. Meanwhile, a strange and beautiful girl called April arrives in Sunnydale seeking her mysterious boyfriend Warren. Buffy and her friends are in a party, and when Spike flirts with April, she throws him through the window, and then hits Buffy. Buffy and the Scooby gang realize that April is a robot searching for her creator. Meanwhile Glory finds that Ben unsuccessfully tried to date Buffy.

This.

That's the one thing I always worried about an Ultron-centric Avenger movie from way back; and now that Joss has apparently kicked Hank Pym to the curb, I worry even more. Fanboys like me are already up in arms because we know that Joss is crapping on a major part of Avenger canon; but mainstream audiences could easily start hating on this concept, too, if it turns into just another been-there done-that killer robot movie.

By taking away the psychosexual deviance of the Pym-Ultron-Janet relationship, Joss has taken away the heart and the horror of the Frankenstein story variant. That's what drives Ultron stories, *not* "zomg killer robot!!1!1!!"

I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Granted, Pym isn't my favorite, so I'm not as sad as some to see him left off the squad, but Whedon is still the same storyteller he was when he wrote Avengers. I seriously doubt he's going to turn in a cliche robot movie.
