The Marvel Universe presented in EMH in season two keeps expanding. In the fourth episode of season two, “Welcome to the Kree Empire,” we see Ms. Marvel & Mar-Vell in action. In the fifth episode, “To Steal an Ant-Man,” we get Luke Cage & Iron Fist but not most of the Avengers save Pym and the Wasp.
I liked both episodes. The “new” characters fit in with the rest of the heroes. “Welcome” has the Avengers and S.W.O.R.D. taking on the Kree who’s threatening to destroy the Earth. “Steal” has the return of Hank Pym having the Heroes for Hire search for the Ant-Man gear thief. There are also dramatic angles added: “Kree” has the Mar-Vell/Ms. Marvel relationship and “Steal” has the thief’s motivation.
Neither episodes have complex plots, but they both move at a good pace. Their action scenes show off the “new” heroes’ powers well: Ms. Marvel is aggressive, Cage is a confident street fighter, and Iron Fist is focused yet calm. Take note of how Skrull Captain America rushes into action compared to our Cap. This is a likely setup for every Marvel hero on EMH to help save the world at the season’s end. I’m looking forward to that.
