    Major Victory is a bit more cheesy than Superman, from his punny name to his male stripper background (wouldn't that make a great comic, with the superhero having a secret identity as a "male review artist," lol!)

    I loved his reaction to the dogs, from the awesome arm-catch to the "I love you guys" and "Feel the love!" comments.

    With all that love, he skates dangerously close to what one might imagine a porno superhero to be like.

    Yeah, I liked her from the first time she did her monkey cry. And she really commits to the character (as does Major Victory), as in changing into her costume in a tree.

    ...I thought it looked to be totally scripted ahead of time, including IE's reponses. It gave a clear reason as to why Iron Enforcer had been on the block for every eviction, but was kept on.
    The apparent pre-planning of this was my first disappointment in this show, which I have thought to be fun and a bit more "real reality" than most.
    That seemed clearly scripted from the beginning, which is why his costume and the "makeover" both stunk, so that the supervillain reveal would be more spectacular. He reminds me of those wrestler characters. That's probably where they found him - I'll bet he was an aspiring pro wrestler.

    Btw, I don't care if it was totally scripted; the "supervillain" bit at the end is what made the episode great.

    We have a Super Villain - YEAH! Iron Enforcer, even though he tried to bring out his soft side (good acting job) just couldn't cut the Super Hero mustard. I'm still cracking up over Iron Enforcer ever so chalant walking down the mean street and Stan Lee popping up on a "junked" TV! The makeover girls screeching up in a van and all the comic book pizzazz to turn The Iron Enforcer into the baddy the show needed. As Stan Lee said, every Super Hero has an Arch Nemesis.

    Fat Moma is still my favorite - at least she applied strategy to the back door challenge by throwing out a donut. I think that confused the dogs for half a second - it might have worked if they hadn't been trained to ignore donuts.

    Monkey Girl was awesome...way to show endurance and determination.

    I was sad to see Phone Girl go. I liked her image, but she proved to be a Super Hero fledgling - not yet ready for flight.

    It looks like next week we get to see (I can't remember his new name) Super Villain growling...awesome.

    The problem with Traitor and Iron Enforcer is now I wonder how many of the contestants are plants. With Iron Enforcer becoming a Dark Enforcer it does explain the WTF moments when he was picked and every time he spoke.

    I love Major Victory and Monkey Girl. If either of them are plants then it would totally ruin the show for me. Fat Momma is really cool as well.

    I am a huge comic book fan and have my own comic shop. I love the cheesiness of the show and have been a Stan Lee for a long time.

    Major Victory gets the best lines. Although he is going to have to giveup his chew toy title to Monkey Girl.

    Monkey Girl has the most heart.

    Fat Momma keeps it real.

    I tivo this, and just got around to seeing it.

    T'vic - Man that new costume was horrible.
    Cellphone girl - "Oh, my head hurts, someone save me"
    Feedback - I love his new costume.
    Monkey Girl - yeah, nice to see one of the women step-up and kick butt

    Iron enforcer - When he fell I thought "I guess he is afraid of the dogs and as soon as he got to eye level he quit"
    Then when Stan said something wasn't working, I said "Yeah, he'd make a better arch-villain"
    *suprise*
    It's nice to see this 'reality' show is just as scripted as the rest.

    I'll still watch it. My pick for next week Big Fat Momma, and Creature.

    He was good, wasn't he? But just out of place enough to make me wonder what the heck he was doing there? Why was he even picked if Stan Lee thought his costume looked too mean to be a superhero outfit. Then being on the red cube and sobbing last week and giving up on the dog challenge this week, and the questions framed to show that he was trying to make the others dislike or even shun him...that response to the steroid question was interesting...only a villain would have responded that way...so...dot, dot, dot, on with the auditions.
