    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.

    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.

    Black Widow, Scarlet Witch...

    Does this mean no Ms. Marvel? :csad:

    EDIT: Wasp is probably out too if there's no Pym...

    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.

    Crimson is telling the truth, Jeph Loeb is a plague to Marvel Animation. (Although I loved the second season of EMH)

    Haha I now agree with you! And no season 3 for Young Justice!
    It seems as if I only have kung fu panda Legends of awesomeness left, Jack Black never lets you down!

    :up: 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.
