web warrior: agent venom cartoon debut

Web Warrior: Agent Venom

Today history is made as Agent Venom appears in his very first cartoon series!  Season 3 of Ultimate Spider-Man kicked off last month with the subtitle Web-Warriors.  The first two episodes, The Avenging Spider-Man part 1 and 2, had Asgardian monsters bonded with the Venom symbiote wrecking havoc in NYC.  In episode 3 a left over piece of symbiote finds its way to super hero wannabe Flash Thompson.  Check out the clip from today's episode:

I know I've said it before, but this show has really grown on me.  Is the way they have an endless supply of Venom symbiotes a little frustrating?  Sure.  Is it ridiculous to completely ignore Eddie Brock as a character.  Yeah.  But at the end of the day it is a cartoon made for children.  Enjoying a version of Venom that my five year old doesn't hate, because he isn't bad and scary looking, is a win in my book. 

So anyone that has already seen it, what do you think?

I know that this episode/season has been out for awhile outside of the US and I'm sure you can find it and other clips on other websites.  However, I will only be linking to this Marvel submitted video to avoid any issues.
