To celebrate Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Season 2 on Disney XD starting on April 1st 2012, I will be reviewing Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Season 1. Next on the pile is Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Episode 13 Gamma World Part II. Hawkeye has to recruit the Hulk, as he is the world’s only chance of stopping the Leader and his evil plans. Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Episode 13 Gamma World aired on Disney XD on November 26th 2010.
Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Episode 13 Gamma World Part II
First of all, the mutations, most of them were standard horror movie fair. However,Iron Man’s mutation, where the metal in his chest was ripping as his heart was expanding…yikes. Just that kind of was freaky. Thor naturally was not effected but he has his own problems, given that he has to fight all of these villains. And the Abomination strikes him around for the Leader’s amusement. When Thor tries to summon Mjolnir, the Absorbing Man absorbs its properties. All if its properties, including Thor’s ability to control it with his will.
Absorbing Man should use his powers to absorb some common sense. Then again, the Leader for all of his brilliance is not too bright.
Meanwhile Hawkeye saves Hulk from a Hulkbuster unit, after leaving the Black Widow to her own devices just as the Gamma Dome comes right at them. Hawkeye threatens to take Hulk down, which causes the big guy to laugh, reverting to Bruce Banner, who inoculates Hawkeye, allowing him to go into Gamma World without mutating into a monster. Meanwhile, into Gamma World, as Banner is back into the Hulk and we are into Gamma World with a great fight. The Leader calculated every possible thing…with the exception of Thor throwing the Absorbing Man into him. Hulk and Abomination have a good fight and Hulk destroys the tower, thus causing the Leader’s head to get even bigger than it is,quite literally.
Jeffery Combs as the Leader by the way, was a good casting choice and I wouldn’t mind seeing him back in Season 2. Leader bemoans that he tried to make the world in his own image which causes the Hulk to respond with the following feedback.
“That’s the problem. You’re ugly.”
I gave this two parter a full point just for that line. Everyone is back to normal and Hawkeye is cleared, but given that SHIELD tended to prosecute him when the Black Widow set him up, he’s not too thrilled about going back to SHIELD. So Iron Man offers Hawkeye a spot in the Avengers but he’s not too thrilled with that. When Hulk is asked, he said he’ll stay, “only if Cupid does”. Which raises Hawkeye’s ire. Thus we have an old member and a new member on the team.
And just in time, as it appears that the Masters of Evil have recruited two new members. The Crimson Dynamo who joined off screen and also the Abomination who is in the desert after his fight with the Hulk.
Solid two partner, first part dragged, but second one was full of good moments, so 8/10. You can watch Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Episode 13 Gamma World on Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Volume 2 DVD and don’t forget to watch Avengers Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Season 2 on Disney XD.
