It’s Saturday so obviously I’m watching cartoons. Yesterday my daughter and I watched The Avengers, the movie, and today went back to try and finish up the season of cartoon Avengers. We’re almost there.
Crimes and Circuses deals with (surprise, surprise) the Circus of Crime. Ringmaster, Bruto, the Human Cannonball, the Gambonno Twins, and Trickshot. Right away I noticed Princess Python was missing, (boy does that make me sounds nerdy) but she did show up later. Hawkeye and Falcon were the star heroes of the episode, as the rest of the team got themselves brainwashed by Ringmaster. I was a little disappointed that he didn’t use the spiral hat to do that, but it was okay.
The Circus was out for revenge against Hawkeye, since, as most of you will undoubtedly know, he used to be a part of their criminal team. If you didn’t know that, sorry for the minor spoiler, but I’m sure you would have figured it out in the show. He tries to hide this from Falcon, but the secrets come out, as they always do.
It was a pretty straight-forward episode, and consisted mainly of fights, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. A couple of things, though. Princess Python didn’t have a real snake, but instead had a giant, robotic, cycloptic monstrosity. There was never any mention of who the new Trickshot in the circus was. I won’t post who it should have been, should anyone out there be unawares, but it was someone who was close to Clint. Also, no Swordsman? It would have been a perfect time for him to be put into cartoon form, but maybe they didn’t want that many mustachioed villains in one group.
I’m anxious to finish the season. Although it’s been a good show, it’s slowed down a bit in the last couple episodes we watched. I’m hoping the finale will be huge, and bring back the cabal, who are in possession of the Tesseract (aka cosmic cube, aka an infinity gem(probably the reality or power one)).
So check this one out if you like the show, but it’s not one that is needed.
