#69 - Burrito Run Original Airdate - July 28th, 2015
Craving Mexican food, Spidey, Power Man and Squirrel Girl sneak out after hours for a burrito. Along the way they must contend with a plot from a group of Spider-Man's enemies.
Ultimate Spider-Man is produced by Marvel Animation and carries a TV-Y7-FV parental guideline.
Pretty decent episode. I thought the premise with the heroes deciding to go out on a burrito run was pretty dumb, but this played out rather well in the end. Nice to see some more of Squirrel Girl, since most of the characters introduced this season haven't been used that much. It was a pretty interesting team-up, having only Spidey, Power Man and Squirrel Girl for most of the episode. The opening scene with the training session was decent. Hawkeye's role here was pretty good, I wasn't really expecting to see him as a guest instructor again so soon.
The fight scenes were pretty good. The villains used in this episode weren't the greatest. Mesmero is a pretty boring character but I do appreciate they used him without having to resort to another mind-switch story (like in his previous appearances on the show). I guess the villain I liked the most in this episode was Shocker. The others didn't do much for me - Batroc has been overused, and Boomerang and Grizzly barely got to do anything this time.
All in all, decent stuff. The dialogue still needs some work, and the humor is still kind of lame, but otherwise I don't really have any complaints. The episode could have been a lot worse, I guess.
