  • Lumberjacks free the demon of violence when they cut down a tree, and Max has to find a way to keep Norman from submitting to wanton violence while trying to trap it again.

    Again, Mighty Max defies expectations at every turn. All throughout the episode we see a forest being laid to waste in the name of progress, and we keep expecting that to be the problem Our Heroes are trying to prevent, but instead they face the problem of being desensitized to violence. Max learns that the Hollywood portrayal of violence is different from what it is in the real world, and Norman learns that there are some problems even his strength cannot get rid of. Kind of scary for little kids, but man it'll make 'em think.
