‘The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!’ – S02E08 – “The Ballad of Beta Ray Bill”

Last Sunday I summoned Black Widow. This week? Let’s go for… oh, Darkhawk.

Here’s how “The Ballad of Beta Ray Bill” is described:

While searching for the fire demon Surtur, Thor is attacked by a powerful creature known as Beta Ray Bill, and the unthinkable happens when Bill lifts Thor’s hammer as the two battle. Thor must ally himself with this strange warrior to save Asgard before Surtur and his demon army burn it to the ground.

I look forward to your thoughts, opinions, gripes, live-blogging, etc.


  1. Beta Ray Bill?! Show is confirmed success.

  2. Sif.

  3. ” I NEED A HORSE! “

  4. BRB is an awesome character and I liked the ep. but that was a Thor show not an Avengers. But my words mean nothing since they are ending the show anyway.

  5. If that ship contains the last remnants of his people maybe Bet Ray shouldn’t smash the control console and crash it.

    Also it looks like maybe Sif wants to go to the donkey show.

  6. Was it just me or did Bill’s ship look like the battleship Yamato from Starblazers!!!

  7. This episode was just amazing for anyone who is a fan of Simonson’s Thor run. So many great things.

    Two things that bothered me though:
    1) I always though Skuttlebutt was a girl? I thought it was referred to as a “her”, but maybe that’s just a whole “ships are referred to as she’s and hers” thing. Just wasn’t expecting a male computer voice. Not that big a deal.
    2) After the whole “And there came a day unlike any other yada yada yada” intro where they play the theme and then they show the current Avengers roster, just seeing Thor standing there by himself was just REALLY depressing to me.

  8. They did a great job with the Simonson Thor, much better than they did with Korvac last week.

  9. Awesome episode! Beta Ray Bill is a great character, and I was glad to see him on the show.

  10. While I get Marvel wants to do make their own show instead of farming it out. I’m going to miss this show. It’s a good history of marvel/avengers.
