Repetitive, Predictable, Boring, Disappointing
19 August 2017 | by (Athens, Greece) – See all my reviews

Marvel is embedded in my DNA (reading Marvel comics non stop for over 30 years) so I could not rate this lower than 7 for old times sake. However, this is a cheap cheap cheap production with very little creative effort.

Everyone is doing the One on One "dance" (as expected in comics), and the entire series is focused strictly on martial arts (which is very cool) and nothing else.

The "Superheros" and "Villains" talk a lot! And I mean A LOT! No other way to fill 8 episodes with what could be filmed in 2. I know comics are often described as soap operas, but this takes it to a whole new level.

Very sad to see such an ambitious show end up like this. Well...lets see what else is on...(pushes button on remote)
