  • Hygena was too slow and meticulous, as usual. Hyper-Strike did an excellent job all around. The Defuser hung back mostly, but it was not detrimental to the group. Parthenon may be smart but he wasn't very personable in this episode.moreless

    Hyper-Strike showed how well he could relate to kids. He never once talked down to them. Okay, he made the mistake of revealing (part of) his secret identity but overall, he did wonderfully. In the trap, he came up with some great ideas.

    From Day 1 I thought The Defuser was The Superhero for this season. He just gives off that "hero" air. I see him and I am thinking Superman and the Justice League.

    Hygena ... I'm seriously wondering why she has lasted so long.

    Parthenon ... I'm glad he got so far and I regret that he got eliminated before Hygena. Nevertheless, I saw what Stan Lee meant. How is it possible that none of the kids liked him, right? I think he was too focused on completing the task that he forgot that part of the challenge was interacting with the kids.moreless
  • Parthenon eliminated his own self when he forgot to put the children's feeling first. He surprised me but then in a way he didn't. Maybe it was the "BLING" that upstaged what a true superhero really is.moreless

    Hygena seems to keep trying harder each episode, but I think she needs to go. Maybe it's her personality and that way she still complains even when she says she's not, like in the crate when it bothered her because of the sweaty smell. She wasn't doing anything so I guess her mind had to wonder to something. I think it's going to be between Hyperstrike and The Diffuser. The Diffuser needs to step it back up a little if he wants to win and Hyperstrike needs to remember the rules of a superhero. I like them both but am leaning toward The Diffuser.moreless
  • What did Parthenon do anyway? I never really understood his power or his angle. My thing is bling? What does that mean in the superhero universe?

    In this episode, the Heroes were sent on a mission and given orders by an Evil Stan Lee. They did everything from taking old ladies canes, dancing in traffic, talking about wedgies. It was funny but painful to watch.

    The heroes also had to go to a school and work with kids. Challenges like these are always tricky. Parthenon came off like a cranky queen that was more concerned with making good time than actually interacting with the kids. On the other hand, it felt like an editing trick. Hygena came in last place again but she had the right idea for doing so. I'm not drooling over The Diffuser as much anymore but I'm still rooting for him. Stan Lee calling him bossy humbled him too much and now it seems like he's lost his footing. He's still doing a good job though.

    It is looking like it's going to be Hyperstrike's game now. If I had to bet on a winner now, it would be him. He shined in the "trapped in a crate" challenge and I'm not so annoyed by him flipping all of the time anymore. I actually thought that Parthenon did the best in the "trapped" challenge. His mind started working like MacGyver. Some of the ideas he came up with were awesome. I do not like that he blamed The Diffuser for the pole snapping. All The Diffuser did was hold the pole everyone was responsible for putting it together and making sure it was secure.

    Hygena is truly claustrophobic. Sometimes you hear people say that and it goes in one ear and out of the other because almost everyone claims that they are claustrophobic. The Diffuser and Hygena became slightly edgy in the "trapped" challenge but they were still professional. Hygena seems to have a lot of fears that she is overcoming on this show. To have your fears displayed like that on national TV is heroic in itself. We've seen both The Diffuser and Hygena have the most growth on this show and for that I think it should be them in the final two. I still don't really know that much about Hyperstrike other than his last name is Stork and he got teased about it in high school.... and he misses his girlfriend. If he has any fears or if he's overcoming anything, I don't know. I think he will win because he can do flips and let's face it, at a press release or trying to impress a bunch of kids, that's valuable.

    This week Parthenon was eliminated. It's bittersweet because I felt he really came out of his shell on this episode. On the other hand, what did Parthenon do anyway? I never really understood his power or his angle. My thing is bling? What does that mean in the superhero universe? Maybe he should have been a MacGyver type of superhero instead of a flashy Greek god type. He just never really fit that character to me. That and the kids not liking him really did him in. (I can't believe that NONE of the kids liked him.)

    We are down to the final three; Hyperstrike, Hygena and The Diffuser. Who are you rooting for?moreless
  • they talk to a class

    oh poor parthanon!! i thought higgina should have left first, she has been saying she was going to learn for the past few episodes. though parthanon was extremly pissing me off this time!! when he ignored the kids, i was like oh my what a jerk and i felt like yelling at hyper-strike for saying his name but he was cute with the kids. the defusser was also good in this episode great with the kids and not to bossy, though i did think he could have put in his input a bit more. during the evil stan i was so pissed at parthanon for taking that ladys cane and not giving it back, what a a** hole! i wanted to slap him! idiot!!! but i was still sad to see him go, even though i had already decided that he shouldnt win, a bit to jerky sometimes. so as of this episode i now think that hyper-strike should win, i like him the best.moreless
