  • This episode was good, but it was way too predictable.

    The episode began with the five remaining heroes surprised with how few of them are left. The task was to turn off a fuse in a small room filled with spiders and snakes in less than 6 minutes. The heroes succeeded by only a few seconds and were rewarded with a night in the city. When people saw them, they showed the children their costumes and told them what their powers were. The Defuser though, gave away some device which turned out to be a mistake. When they got to lair, Dr. Dark showed Stan embarrassing and lesser moments from the superheroes past. Whip Snap had stolen a car, The Defuser did not graduate and had alcohol problems, Parthenon has a room in his house dedicated to pirates, Hygena wanted to learn how to do some sort of dancing, and Hyper Strike got fired for doing a trick wrong. I felt that what he found on Hyper Strike stupid and that is not bad at all. At the elimination, Stan nominated Whip Snap, The Defuser, and Hygena. He chose to eliminate Whip Snap because she was too emotionally unstable, and the least heroic. The episode was okay, but the only thing that shocked me was that The Defuser did not graduate high school..moreless
  • A boring episode but at least they kicked the right hero.

    Well, this episode starts out the same as all the others and ends the same as all the others. The middle part was where all the problems were at. First of all the challenge wasn't as much of a big deal as they made it out to be. Also, was I the only one that noticed the added "badly" computer added spiders? The spider crawling on the Diffuser's back was totally not real. Also, it looked to me that the same picture of the same snake and spider were used a whole bunch of times. While I do like that added effects to the show like the little electricity ball special effects in the line when things are happening, (i.e. the city last night was having electrical problems while the heroes were trying to get the fuses), I really hate them adding things into the situation that tries to make it more harrowing that it actually is. That just makes the show look stupid in my opinion.moreless

    very good episode, it was nice to see all the superheros fears. spiders and snakes are two of my fears so i would have sucked at that, though i think i would have done what hyper-strike had done and just not looked. them eating was ok, i thought whip-snap was very good with the kids, it was sweet. i didnt think the defuser did anything wrong with the kids but after stan said somthing i realized why it would be bad. i thought that the bad stuff about them were not that bad, they did that part better last season. i felt really horrible for whip-snap with the evaluations but i am glad hyper-strike told her that he said it, it was very brave of him, i just wish i knew who else said it. i was sad to see whip-snap go cuz i cry alot and it was nice to see a hero cry and she was so good with those kids, i think she is a great role model and that she would make a fine superhero.moreless
