And lo the two part pilot has premiered....and hoo boy. Spoiler's forthcoming:
It's almost the complete opposite of Ultimate Spider-Man, and yet that's the problem! Instead of multiple cut-aways with little plot we get no cut-aways and too much plot! Seriously, it felt like the whole thing was on fast foward, with at least three episodes of content being crammed into two. Jokes were present but they didn't give them proper timing to be funny, though I did enjoy Hawkeye. Also, the voice acting felt a little hollow.
Overall, it felt very much like a 90's show...but not in a good way. Still, I gotta give a couple points to the show. At the very least it looks like they aren't going to retread what was done in AEMH, with characters and origins already existing, so if Ant-Man, Wasp, Vision etc. show up they can get right into the action. They mentioned Spider-Man and JJJ had a surprsing cameo too! I know, Spidey was in AEMH, but after years of him being in sort of embargoed in shows where he wasn't in the title it's very refreshing. Finally, I do like the cabal that Red Skull is setting up. Doom means an Avengers/FF team up, Attuma means Sub-Mariner(YES!), and who was the vampire? It looked like Blackout, which could point to Ghost Rider!!!
