"This was much better than I'd expected. I'd only caught a couple of episodes on Cartoon Network (why they couldn't keep a set schedule with the show, I'll never understand. It's like they wanted the show to fail.)
Anyway, I'd only caught a couple of episodes on Cartoon Network, and I thought they were decent, but not great. They were a couple of the early ones, and not quite as polished as the episodes on this disc. I really enjoyed these -- especially the Anihalus episode and the Iron Man episode. Doom appears in all the episodes, and is actually a pretty good villain with a very striking design.
While I initially hadn't liked the designs because of the pointed chins, I have to say that the show actually looks great. The designs for Doom, Anihalus, and Iron Man especially were fantastic, and the CGI incorporated into the animation worked really well. The show looks sharp and bright.
Overall the dialogue and writing is pretty good. Johney is a little less bright than he should be, but serves decently in these episodes as comic releif, and the action (while not at JLU or The Batman levels,) was entertaining.
I mostly picked this up because the price was good and I was curious about Anihalus and Iron Man. I'm glad I gave it a chance, and now I actually regret that the show got cancelled (with only about half the episodes shown -- again, what was up with CN?) Based on these episodes, I'm abosolutely going to buy the full season when it comes out in June. I'm especially curious to see how Super Skrull, Hulk, Namor (who's in two episodes,)and Ronan (who's also in two episodes,) turn out. I'm also intriuged by the Frightful four who were in some decent episodes of the 90's FF series. And it sounds like Anihalus comes back again as well.
More continuity between episodes would have been great -- in fact, continuity often makes a big difference to how much I like a show (most shows need more of it) -- but over all good stuff."
