it's so funny how they are promoting season 3 while season 2 hasn't even finished.


It's like they are starting from scratch.
Lol dude, consider that a good thing, Marvels new shows are so successful that they can advertise for new confirmed seasons months away.


Looks like Nuke is going to be the newest addition to the Squadron Supreme in the next episode.
Nuke is godlike, love this guy. I want the Hawkgirl homage to appear but that probably won't happen.

Will we see a three way fight? Avengers vs. Squadron Supreme vsm Black Order? Son, the inner child in my senior college body is about to explode.

So:

- The Squadron are repeating what they did to their Earth, except by using the Citadel instead of Dr. Spectrum, unless The Avengers stand down :eek:.

- Hyperion seems to have a grudge against Ant-Man after their last fight :p.

- Cap and Iron Man are noticeably absent while Widow has Cap's SHIELD...

- Thor facing down the Squadron Supreme? Considering how often he ends up jobbing in fights, this could be a good chance to show just how powerful the God of Thunder really is :cool:.

You know what Frontier? You can ban me but I'm tired of you talking trash about my man Thor.

Sure, he got bodied by Doctor Doom, frozen by Hyperion, and even got his tail kicked by MODOK. But despite that, Thor has heart, he will fight and win.

s/

Actually, real talk, when on his own, Thor gets to Batman levels of competent combined with Superman/ Sun Goku strength. They seem to weaken him in group fights because he can't overshadow the other Avengers too much.

When does Nuke appear? I want to see him blow things up. I know I said this already, but I want to see the Avengers comeback and either see Squadron Supreme fighting the Black Order and Thanos or they see the Black Order and Thanos have already beaten the crap out of them. That would be so godlike. Season 2 is so awesome, thank you Marvel.

I think the next episode looks pretty good, so far.

I'm not really familiar with Nuke, but after reading up on him he seems to be Captain Atom's analogue on the Squadron Supreme. Should make for some interesting fight scenes. I wonder who'll voice him, if they'll continue their idea of stunt casting they have for most of the other members of the Squadron.

I wonder where he came from?

Yo, if SS had a Martian Manhunter counterpart, game over Avengers lol.

I read somewhere that he was actually their stand-in for Firestorm, but either way it will be interesting to see who they get to voice him (if he ends up speaking at all). It would be nice to see a former Captain Atom VA end up voicing him :cool:.

Setting aside Brian Bloom of course, since he's already Hyperion :p.

I think a better question would be, where did they keep him until now.

I didn't even think of Firestorm. I guess that makes sense.

If they wanted to save some money, they could get Brian Bloom to perform double duty as both Hyperion and Nuke in this episode. Or, to save even more money, they could just have Nuke be silent the whole time. Either way, I'm curious to see how they handle him and the rest of the Squadron's fight with the Avengers this time.

The SS do have a Martian Manhunter counterpart on the team in the comics his name is: Sky Max, The Skrullian Skymaster.

Here is a list of the Squadron Supreme members and there JLA counterpart:
Hyperion: Superman
Nighthawk: Batman
Power Princess: Wonder Woman
Whizzer: Flash
Doctor Spectrum: Green Lantern
Amphibian: Aquaman
Skymax, the Skrullian Skymaster: Martian Manhunter
Golden Archer (originally named Hawkeye, later named Black Archer): Green Arrow
Lady Lark (later named Skylark): Black Canary
(Skylark also analogous to Hawkwoman/Hawkgirl)
Tom Thumb: Atom
Blue Eagle (originally named American Eagle; also called Cap'n Hawk): Hawkman
Arcanna / Moonglow: Zatanna
Nuke: Firestorm

Mod Note: Double post merged. Please use edit button instead, next time.

The Skrulls did appear on Hulk & the Agents of SMASH, in an episode with the Guardians of the Galaxy if I remember correctly. So who knows, they might be able to show up on Avengers Assemble as well.

Amphibian would be pretty nice I guess, but I'd much rather see Namor the Sub-Mariner animated again.

Yeah... I just watched the end of Peepoodo... And I wish I hadn't. If I'm considered a wuss for liking Milo Murphy's Law. Big City Greens, Summer Camp Island, Clarence, Craig of the Creek, Hilda, Harvey Beaks, Harvey Street Kids and even The Loud House - not to mention LPS (2012, 2018) SO MUCH MORE because at least those shows have some constraint to not be this gross - then I could care less what you think of me.
Yeah I'm probably not coming back
I was just about to say "Where's Gridman?" on that Crunchyroll streaming thread.
DISH had recent upgrades on the 61.5 orbital slot this early morning. My signal strengths got increased and transponders were moved to another.

How Cartoon Network and TBS moved to other transponders. :P
What I love from the commercial studio Psyop, is the Cricket Wireless critters (known as the Cricketters) in different shapes and colored in Green, Yellow and Blue. So imaginative and cute! :)
