Super Best Friends Forever returns this week, with Superman making a guest appearance and being a general party pooper. This week sees the first appearance of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes and Ultimate Spider-Man in SMC, Carol Ferris take on the helm of Star Sapphire, and an oddly nerdy interjection into the season finale of South Park.


Minor spoilers ahead!

The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes– "To Steal an Ant-Man"

Luke Cage and Iron Fist are re-united in this episode, as Hank Pym comes to the duo for aid in finding his Ant-Man suit after it is stolen. Power Man and Iron Fist are just happy to be mentioned in the same breath as the Avengers.

Ultimate Spider-Man – "Why I Hate the Gym"

Spider-man does battle with Deadpool's on again, off again pal Taskmaster in this clip, which does an amazing job of showing off Taskmaster's super-power, the ability to break down and copy the combat technique of an opponent. White Tiger also makes an appearance in this episode.

Adventure Time – "Dream of Love"

Tree Trunks, the baking genius, is the object of a pig's affection, with the duo singing a pretty amazing song about their love.This might be the best song ever. I think it's gonna make me cry if I listen to it 3-4 more times. Jake isn't too happy - he is afraid he will lose his baked goods supplier.


Green Lantern: TAS – "In Love and War"

Hal Jordan's boss (and sometimes love interest) Carol Ferris makes her first appearance as Star Sapphire in this clip.


Young Justice: Invasion – "Happy New Year"

Yes, it's the end of April, but the bizarre scheduling of Young Justice by Cartoon Network deems it to be New Year's Eve. In this episode, the group meets the galaxy's biggest bastich, Lobo, but Superboy is engulfed in fat-like folds in this clip.


Super Best Friends Forever

Batgirl flings rocks at Supergirl's window - Supergirl is grounded, but Wondergirl will have none of man's silliness. But this is the big question - who grounded Supergirl?


The Legend of Korra – "The Voice in the Night"

Korra joins a task force to fight Amon and the Equalists in this episode, but finds herself in a bit of trouble after challenging Amon to a duel in this clip.


Thundercats – "The Pit"

"When I'm in the pit, I'm gonna punch and hit" – thank you Reel Big Fish for embedding that lyric in my mind for all of eternity. In this clip, a robot gladiator rips its head off and kills (ok, It is a kid's show, incapacitates…) two dog/cat combatants with it. Thundercats, where have you gone?


Transformers Prime – "Flying Mind"

The Decepticon Warship Nemesis is full of energon, leading it to become sentient and refuse the directions of Megatron. The ship is on a doomsday collision course with Earth, and will kill any Cybertronian in its way.


South Park – "Cartman Finds Love"

Don't pay attention to what Cartman is doing. Just listen to Mr. Garrison (mkay...) as he compares the warring families in Game of Thrones to powers of the Roman Empire. This clip is a bright spot in this otherwise dismal season finale.

The Legend of Korra airs Saturday mornings on Nickelodeon, I really didn't know Nickelodeon still existed - do they still show Guts or You Can't do that on Television? I hope so. Transformers: Prime airs Saturday afternoons on The Hub. South Park airs Wednesday nights on Comedy Central. Adventure Time airs Monday nights on the Cartoon Network. Thundercats, Green Lantern: The Animated Series, and Young Justice air Saturday mornings on the Cartoon Network, so turn your television on.




Do you have any plans to do a full series of recaps on The Legend of Korra? It's turning out to be one of the best shows I've ever watched, in any genre or format. It's much more mature, tightly-paced, and dark than Avatar: The Last Airbender, while maintaining some intriguing ties to the characters of the original show. I'd love to see it get more attention here.
