I’m more eager to watch EMH than Ultimate Spider-Man. What I don’t get is why after three episodes are there four separate plot threads: Sue Richards of the Fantastic Four being a Skrull, Iron Man resisting registering the Avengers to S.H.I.E.L.D., and Captain America being a Skrull with Thor bringing Asgardian shenanigans back to Earth. The Fantastic Four’s issues should’ve been settled as a two-part season opener. There must be a satisfying payoff to having a fraction of the heroic roster Skrulling about.

EMH has never been a grand epic that changes the way we think about superheroes, the show should stand on firmer ground with the plot arcs. If anyone from EMH is reading this: please make the Hulk more than childish comedy relief. Does Disney think no adults are watching and paying attention? Anyway, I read so many good things about Young Justice lately…
