Wasp & Friends

Wasp & Friends was created by lfan
Well...I'm talking about the Avengers Cartoon series. Eventhough its a little too testesterone based for my preferences (wasp is the only heroine on the 7-member team), I wanted to give it a shout out!

Since JLU went off the air, I've been looking for something to fill the void and this season both Younhg Justice and Avengers seems to fit the bill!

Though I'm not a huge fan of the animation art in Avengers, its growing on me and overall its well written. The series's "serial" approach rivals that of JLU's last season and it seems like they are stitching the episodes together to form one big saga. Voice acting is good as well, so if you're not watching, give it a try. Also hoping for more Ms Marvel later on (she cameoed in the episode "459")...

Peace

After the current Kang trilogy part of which was the most recent episode, is another episode with Mockingbird then an episode titled "Marvelous" which is possibly Ms. Marvel's official debut.

The creator has mentioned on his Twitter that Ms Marvel is one of his favorite characters, and he's being careful to introduce her to the audience right since most of the casual Marvel fans don't know her full backstory. So I think it's promising that she'll have a good focus, and possibly even join the Avengers at some point.

I wouldn't exactly call her appearance in 459 a cameo either as she was very heavily focused in the first half of the episode, just unpowered.

I'm loving this show. Young Justice looks promising too.

Well Ms Marvel/Warbird practicly already appeared we just have to wait until she put on the costume, Mockingbird is around working for S.H.I.E.L.D. and someone on the net already mentioned She-Hulk among the next bunch of characters that will be introduced.

Overall I think it's a great show and I agree the serial styleunited with the subtle nod and cameos are doing wonders for this show.
The animation style isn't bad, but it isn't great either. Same for the voice acting, the actors are doing a fine job, but I don't like some of the matchings (especially Iron Man and Hawkeye).

"Marvelous" I think is scheduled to be the last episode of the first season (1x22) and scheduled to appear around Mid-February. We'll keep everyone posted....

Just a minor update. Wiki was wrong (surprise) and Marvelous isn't an episode at all. Avengers has been on hiatus for a while and apparantly will be for a few more weeks as well.

That being said, the creator has still all but outright said Carol's joining the team. I think it's promising.

Quick update is that they've announced all the remaining episodes and JimBob is correct in that there is no episode called "Marvelous". It's unknown whether Ms Marvel will make an appearance this season or next, buit like JimBob said, the producer has pretty much said she'll be appearing and I'll wager she'll be a team regular soon to help beef up the female side of the team (Wasp is outnumbered currently 1 female: 7 males).

Since this serie is going with the most iconic members of the Avengers the most likely girls to appear next - according to me - are:

- Ms Marvel
- Photon
- She-Hulk

Well, they could get upstaged by Black Widow and/or Mockingbird, both have which have already appeared. Of course, they're kinda slanted BW as an adversary and connected MB with SHIELD, so they might stay aligned there....

I'd settle for your three, although I think Shulkie is a LONGshot while Hulk is still on the team. Maybe Tigra?

Black Widow and Mockingbird will probably, I didn't include them in my list because they already appeared. As for Shulkie I don't think that will be too much of a stretch, especially if they're going to pull a JLU thing, like some rumors on the net seem to imply.

I've read the summaries for the eps. Black Widow is going to going to be a major player in one ep. She could even be a late season recruit.

No mention of Carol in the summaries, so she won't be getting a whole intro ep to her Ms Marvel identity if she does show up, which isn't impossible, considering they'll be needing alot of back up if the summaries are any suggestion and the show has had characters just suddenly appear by surprise before. But she could also be saved until next season, where according to the guy who keeps harping about her, the roster will get some losses and new additions.

Wasp has actually been pretty well featured I think. She's only missed one ep so far all season which is better than everyone other than Iron Man who's made at least a brief appearance. She's also been surprisingly useful. And she'll have quite a badass scene in one of the last eps accoding to the guys that saw one of them at a con as a preview.

Sorry for the double post, but wanted to update that I saw the rest of the season (Austraila aired them early) and though it was awesome, no Ms Marvel yet, although Sif and Valkryie make an appearance. It ended on a heck of a surprise cliffhanger though.

Season 2 is going to feature the Kree vs Skrull war, which is right up Carol's alley.

And now we wait until next season.

I just watched Episode 25 and, while there's little supergirl action, I have to admit I'm impressed how good the cartoon is going.
By the way it's just me or the third valyrie along with Sif and Brunihilde looks suspiciosly like Hawkgirl. I mean look at her: red hair, mace, "beaky" helmet.
