Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes Episode 41 Powerless
The following review contains spoilers for Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes Season 2 Episode 15 Powerless.
Thor, Captain America, Hawkeye, and Iron Man are fighting the Wrecking Crew. Loki is still at the mercy of the serpent, but the Enchantress shows up to strike a bargain. She depowers CaptainAmerica (turning him into the pre super soldier formula Steve Rogers), Thor(turning him into a mortal), and Iron Man(blocking out the technological savvy portion of Tony Stark's brain and reducing his armor this original format). Loki's soul is sent to Earth in the Destroyer Armor, while the Enchantress waits with his body.
The Enchantress does warn Loki that should Thor learn humility, then he will regain his powers. Loki scoffs at his brother ever learning such a thing.
Hawkeye, his skills still intact, manages to hold off the Wrecking Crew long enough. Thor is despondent at the fact that he has a broken leg and he considers himself to be useless. Captain America tries to rally everyone, as Iron Man tries to get his armor to work. Loki shows up, fully intent to destroy Thor and his allies.
The spirit of the mortals moves Thor and as a result he gains the humility needed to regain his powers. The spell is broken and the Avengers assemble to beat Loki.
Loki is once again at the mercy of the serpentand the Enchantress checks in with Sutur. Ragnarok is at hand. The Destroyer Armor is locked up at the mansion but it looms ominously.
Well this episode was not as damning as I feared in the quality department. Then again, there was that little continuity glitch about the Wrecking Crew being out and law. A wizard did it, I guess.
The plot was rather simplistic. Thor has to learn humility. Haven't seen that one before. Although points on trying to figure out how to depower Iron Man and not have the obvious solution be, put on another suit of armor.
Captain America even with his powers was still rather capable. And Hawkeye is a master of hot wiring things. Who really knew.
This felt like a self contained action cartoon, although obviously the current storyline with Surtur continues to move on and move forward. So perhaps we can judge these last twelve episodes as a halfway point between the rest of Earth's Mightiest Heroes and then the next Avengers cartoon.
Final Thoughts and Rating
6/10 for this one. Not too bad all things considered. You can watch Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes Episode 41 Powerless on Disney XD sometime this summer, well legally anyway.
