  • Not Bad, pretty good

    Well I watch this episode yesterday(6/16) and it was pretty interesting the action wasn't corney the drawing of the characters wasn't bad either and I was enjoying the cartoon. Didn't think it was going to be good because this cartoon has alot of bad reviews from alot of people but I enjoyed this cartoon and I hope I catch the other shows if they put it on, on a regular basis. So if you get the chance check it out this new edition to Fantastic Four, its upgraded and different but not bad and this show was creative so you'll are missing out if you don't give this show a try.moreless
  • The Puppet Master uses Cosmic Powered Clay to make Members of the Fantastic Four do his bidding and extract revenge on those who have wronged him!

    A great episode which introduces The Puppet Master, a mad sculptor with secret ties to The Thing's Girlfriend, Alicia Masters.

    Remnants of the Space Station, where the Fantastic Four got their powers, fall to Earth and infuse the clay with Cosmic Radiation. The Puppet Master soon discovers the power in the clay and uses members ofthe Fantastic Four as his unwitting pawns. The team, unable to figure out why they are under outside control must figure out who is doing them and stopping them before they are forced to do something they will regret!

    There is some great character development and one of the funniest things was that Johnny Storm is trying to break into acting, and has to entertain a child star who is even more annoying than he is! The ending was hilarious and worth watching just for that. There is not as much action as in other episodes but enjoyable nonetheless!
