"The Casket of Ancient Winters"

when we last left the Avengers, they had defeated Kang and sent him packing.  probably took a little time to rest.
the stopping of Mjollner

thought the Radioactive Man decided he should show up and tap into the Avengers power source.  this sets up a conflict between Iron Man and Thor, the old "science vs magic" debate.

this has been going on for some time, and it makes sense.  I do like them becoming friends, as they have been (in my life) for a long time.

spoilers ahead!

but since the name of the episode has nothing much to do with R-man, it must have something to do with Asgardian mythology.  or Marvel Comics' version of it,  anyway.  and so it does.  Loki foolishly revives Malekith to retrieve the Cask and so he does.  then he turns on the Enchantress and the Executioner and decides to turn the rest of the Earth into ice.

you know what time it was.
some of our heroes go to Norway to fight Malekith and the rest stay in NYC to fight ice demons and such.  they get a little help from a blue eyed ever-loving superhero pictured here.

in the end Thor and Iron Man combine their powers to defeat Malekith and stop the invasion. however, they forget the other two villains will also be freed and guess what happens?

we also find out Thor has been exiled from Asgard!  no surprise there.

I really am enjoying this cartoon a lot, and have missed watching it.  good stuff here.
