I realize that the micro-episodes combined make up a chunk of the episodes, but it's really hard to believe that we're already on Episode 10, so we're likely close to the end of the season mere weeks after it premiered.
Anyway, it was a good episode. I don't remember who came first in the comics, whether it was Wonder Man or Grim Reaper, but it was still fun to see, what I'm pretty sure is, the first animated incarnation of Wonder Man. I like the twist of him being brought into the Enchantress's fold to play villain another day. And oddly enough, making Wonder Man a villain gives this series an odd symmetry with the current Avengers comics, where Simon also recently underwent a heel turn.
The first encounter with MODOK had its moments, but he really felt like a villain out of a Japanese anime with his voice mannerisms and his animation style. For the sake of political correctness (since we were all having the Nazi discussion for the past few weeks), MODOK refers to himself as "Designed Only for Conquest", as opposed to "Designed Only for Killing", to keep this show family-friendly.
Wasp: (to MODOK) Ok stop, WHAT is THAT? Thor: 'Tis some kind of...of......that is a very big head.
Next week, the Black Panther is brought into the fold to tie up one of the many overarching storylines from the first few episodes.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.

Don't feel bad about this, but Wonder Man was animated as part of the abysmal 1999 "Avengers" FOX cartoon. It wasn't very good...so the less said about that show, the better. Oh, and Wonder Man came first in the comics (as a villainous mole on the team, but he "died" redeeming himself).
Anybody having luck with finding these episodes on Comcast's On Demand service? Or a reliable Hulu-like source? Disney XD seems to be blowing through these episodes and I've only seen the first two or so.

Marvel's official site has every micro-episode and the opening two-parter featuring the Breakout and Graviton available, but nothing beyond that, unfortunately.
I can't believe the amount of stuff that's going on in this series. We've already got ongoing points with Hydra and the Masters of Evil, and a mess of stuff from the micro episodes, like whatever the Leader's planning. And now they've introduced the Cosmic Cube! I am deeply excited by even the remotest possibility that we'll eventually get Thanos.

I wouldn't call it award-winning, but it's a good Wonder Years-like tale about dignity and tolerance. While Ed Harris does well as Mr. Simon, it's Alexander Walters, Daniel Yelsky and Chase Ellison as the main protagonists in the movie that carry it.
