Welcome to this week’s installment of Marvel Universe. Sorry for the delay, but my normal watching schedule was thrown off a bit this past weekend. Today’s episode of Ultimate Spider-man is titled “Flight of the Iron Spider.” Spider-man meets Iron Man, and is given a gift. Today’s episode of The Avengers is titled “Welcome to the Kree Empire.” The Kree arrive at Earth with thoughts of taking over, giving Carol Danvers a chance to use the powers she’s received. The short segments include a martial arts demonstration, a profile of Iron Fist, and a repeat of Joe Quesada drawing Captain America. Oh, and those damn mash-up things, but I ignore them.
Ultimate Spider-man – Flight of the Iron Spider
Spider-man isn’t doing so well in a fight against the Living Laser, so the rest of the team comes to help. They don’t do well either, but then Iron Man shows up and defeats him. Spider-man is a bit awestruck by Iron Man. He joins in on a conversation Iron Man is having with Nick Fury. He suggests how to find Living Laser, and Iron Man tells him that he likes Spider-man. A couple days later, Tony Stark takes Spider-man on a tour of just lab. At the end of the tour, Stark shows him armor he created for him when he had an hour to kill. Back on the Helicarrier, the team starts their training without Spider-man. When they finished. Spider-man shows up wearing the armor Stark developed. Things don’t go very well when he first tries to use the armor, and he destroys the training room. Days later, Spider-man has grown a bit arrogant regarding his new armor, but is destroying everything around him. Living Laser shows back up, and Fury sends everyone but Spider-man. However, Spider-man shows up anyway. Power Man tells Spider-man that he should hang back until he learns how to use the suit. Spider-man doesn’t listen, but can’t control the suit. The team tells Spider-man that he’s pretty useless while he’s in Stark’s armor. Living Laser has infected Spider-man’s suit, and takes control of it. Laser uses the Iron Spider suit to attack Iron Man. Laser threatens Peter’s life unless Iron Man lowers his security. Iron Man does, so Laser jumps to Iron Man’s suit. Back at the Helicarrier, the team finds Spider-man working on the armor. Spider-man apologizes to the team. They all head to Stark Industries to rescue Iron Man. Spider-man uses his armor to find the security fail-safe in Iron Man’s armor. Spider-man sends a volt into Stark’s mind that wakes him up. Stark takes control of his armor, and expels the Laser. Iron Man leads Laser away, while Spider-man heads to a device that will send Laser to a different dimension. Spider-man is able to activate the device in time to send Laser in a different dimension. Laser ends up in the Super Hero Squad show. On the Helicarrier, Fury shows Spider-man that they’ve improved the suit, and made it so that it looks like a backpack when not in use.
