Much agreeance. Defuser was my least favorite of the final three. I feel like they took his real life role too much into account in making the final decision. As much as I loved Parthenon, he did screw up the classroom challenge and I think that did justify his elimination. Hygena overcame her fears, which made me happy that she was kept in the final three, but it wasn't enough for a win. I'm not sure why Hyperstrike didn't win, other than the thought that since his job is a circus performer, then maybe they felt he wouldn't be taken seriously?

except that that's exactly the sort of thing that normally goes way over with Stan Lee's audience. Think of say, Nightcrawler. Hell. The guy's name was even John Stork - totally a 60s secret ID type name.

The problem is, Dark Horse doesn't do that sort of character, and they had a voice in the elimination discussions. Which is why something as gimmicky as Hygena or Fat Momma won't win, either. Dark Horse takes itself awfully seriously.

To be fair, Fat Momma basically threw the competition anyway. She's cool like that.

When he went with 3 finalists it was kind of interesting - all had revealed too much info in the makeup room, but Stan praised Defuser and Hygena for their roles. Based on that, I thought Hyperstrike would go home, so I'm glad he went with 3. When I then looked at all 3 overall, I really felt Hyperstrike was the most suitable superhero, based on everything seen up to that point - Hygena was too wimpy, and Defuser was too pushy and "cop like." I thought Hyper had it all. Very bummed.

And as much as Parthenon screwed up the kids challenge, I still think he was sent home because he was gay. Interestingly, though, in his after-show interview, Feedback pointed out that Mindset and Whipsnap both got kicked out their first time on the block, too, but still...

But, like I said, I guess now is the time to write the post-show Parthenon/Hyperstrike slash, eh? ;)
