The next short will feature Black Panther and Captain America.
Also coming to Marvel HQ in April is the fourth installment of Bend & Flex, a collaborative Marvel and Hasbro animated short series featuring bendable, flexible Marvel-inspired action figures! In this latest episode, Black Panther and Captain America try to one-up each other while working out in the park. However, their exercise routine is rudely uprooted by the Mad Titan himself -- Thanos!

Marvel Bend & Flex "Cap And Black Panther Exercise Heroism!"

The exercising stuff at the beginning was hilarious, as was the music.

I like that Thanos is the kind of guy who hangs out in city parks. No snap for you! He also sucks at building houses of cards.

Funny. ****.

Marvel Bend & Flex "Bending The Rules"

That was super cool. But the disclaimer at the beginning is starting to grate. I realize they need to be extra careful because this is essentially a toy commercial, but do they really believe little kids can't recognize a cartoon when they see it? Eh. ****1/2.

Here's another short.
I guess it's because he's one of the main figure, but they sure do use Venom a lot. Then again, maybe they also wanted to promote Venom :p.
Marvel Bend & Flex "Another Brick In The Fall"

Hulk doesn't work so well in these shorts because he can't change his expression. ***.
Perpetually angry Hulk :eek:.

Marvel Bend & Flex "Merry Mayhem"

Do they need that long-ass disclaimer on EVERY single cartoon? These things are super short and that's eating up some major runtime.

I want that Spider-Gwen figure.

Cute. ***.

Marvel Bend & Flex "Time Warp"

I'm guessing the more waves the toyline has, the more characters and different types of stories we'll get. Because that was monotonous. But slightly less monotonous than usual. ***.

hi, what cartoon is your profile pic from?

I haven't seen an Nostalgia Critic episode in 6 years and i don't plan on coming back.

But good lord this is cringe. It straight up looks like a 2001 Newgrounds cartoon. I'm suprised Foamy the Squirrel didn't pop up
So is there going to be a "Do you remember ___________?" thread for every show that ever existed? Or is it just for shows that came out in the last 30 years?
I wish a happy 49th birthday to Aliki Theofilopoulos Grafft.

I could find some stuff that was relatable from Kansas City.
