TV
Marvel Universe brought us brand new episodes of Ultimate Spider-man and The Avengers: Earth”s Mightiest Heroes. On USM, Peter Parker goes head to head with bully Flash Thompson and we see the debut of Venom. On TAEMH, the team is caught between the Masters of Evil and Enchantress, who is seeking revenge for their betrayal.

This week in geek starts with the return of  Syfy’s Eureka. Now in its fifth and final season, it starts directly after the events of the season four finale when the sabotaged Astreaus project mysteriously disappeared with its crew and Alison Blake.

We also had a new episode of Thundercats, which focused on Wilykit and Wilykat’s origin stories.

On DC Nation, we continue to follow Hal Jordan, Kilowag and Razor in Green Lantern: The Animated Series as they search for rations on a feuding planet. And on Young Justice, after last weeks huge reveal, we have the side kicks facing off with the heroes!
