>Venture Bros season six starts the 31st
Hold me, /co/. It's been so long. I can finally see the light at the end of the tunnel.
Also, Venture Bros thread.
Honestly, yes. It's one of the best cartoons released in the last twenty years. The first season is a little dry because it sticks to the whole "parody of boy adventurer shows" thing it starts with, but after that it shakes that off a bit and comes into its own with great writing and an even better cast.
It's so predictable that Doc fucks it all up, that i'd actually like to see him be some what successful? I mean I actually enjoyed the episode where he got those interns to build him a shield generator. More like that would be great
I'm really hoping we see some real growth from Rusty, since nothing really came from that episode where Dr.O jumped into his head and fixed his ego/id
>is this show worth watching? I see threads about it here all the time
I've been rewatching them all to get myself hyped for S6 and honestly it's probably my favourite show of all time. Like others have said, the first half or so of s1 is a real drag, but once it gets going, it's a hell of a ride
It's the only show I know that consistently has ridiculously amazing season finales
> Rusty is too fucked up to either break or fix
I don't want to believe that, anon
That's what I was thinking too. It's so predictable that he's gonna fuck it up somehow that I actually want to see him succeed for once.
>I'm really hoping we see some real growth from Rusty, since nothing really came from that episode where Dr.O jumped into his head and fixed his ego/id
He didn't change much from Dr. Killinger's teachings either, which is a damn shame. Maybe this time he'll actually figure his shit out.
these are the same people who praise rick and morty
Yeah, the show is FILLED with tropes/references. It puts a realistic spin on most things though, which is great
i.e the fantastic 4 team has a flamster who is in constant agony
Dr Orpheus is a few characters rolled into one lovable, doting single dad who happens to love hamming up every scene he's in with steadily-increasing dramatic music and lines.
>Who wants PIIIIIIZZZZA ROOOOOLLLLLLLSSSSSSS?
Oh look. Even more parody Marvel characters.
Because it was so original the first 15 times.
Yes. So it was fine when they used Doctor Strange and I guess also Fantastic Four. But come on. Ant-Man, Spider-Man and now even more of them?
It just seems to me like they're going for the same easy targets over and over again whenever they run out of ideas.
I wouldn't call them "easy targets." They live in a super hero world. Dc and marvel take from each other all the time, so it's not weird that they have similar characters in the ventureverse. I think they're great parodies and they usually aren't just poking fun with no respect. They like comics
I like the Monarch, but I don't think he belongs on the new council. He's got his own shit to deal with, like finding out what happened to his parents and his past with the venture family.
>YFW he spends the entire wealth to get Rusty Venture: The Musical onto Broadway
I think Rusty is going to be "Successful" in the sense that everything that was left to him, the company and all that his brother owned/made, is successful and will keep going. The products, the research departments, the contracts, the shareholders, the VPs, they all are doing great and just keep pushing Rusty through the loop and handing him his paycheck, the aging scientist losing his interest in the field altogether as he sees how thoroughly he isn't needed. No matter how rich he gets, he's still the loser. He lost to his brother. He lost to his father. The Venture name will shine bright and proud, and he didn't do a damn thing to help or support that achievement.
>"Ha ha! Sweet, the Monarch is on the council of-"
>yfw the alternate reality Rusty with more hair, more money and his own hit play on Broadway was just Rusty in the future
>yfw this season ends with past Rusty trying to kill himself with a rock
So like the current Batman vs Superman version of Bruce.
I mean Jason was still wearing the short shorts (briefs)
They're more like the Freedom Fighters, actually.
>that one who's a doll
>the bird one with a color in their name
>the ghostly one
Any source of ridiculous animal themed villains who ultimately don't have enough of a premise to be a memorable villain.
That Pack of Wild Dog Villains
Like half of Spider-man's Animal rogues that aren't the ones you know about pretty much.
Wow they work as like six different Super teams
But really he's just a pun they threw in, like Ladyhawk and Lydon Bee
They're both tubby white guys with brown hair too.
Of course there is (was.) Why do you think Watch and Ward were bummed that all of their Bowie LPs signed by the Sovereign were worthless? Clearly Bowie made the albums but the Sovereign stole his identity.
What I want to know is if the Sovereign wasn't really Bowie then why were Klaus Nomi, Iggy Pop and Brian Eno(aka Eon) his henchmen? Maybe he killed Bowie, took his place, and tricked those close to him which resulted in Iggy and Klaus turning on him.
Guild and OSI act as Control Mechanism keeping the crazies from doing any real harm to the world.
Letting the Monarch off his leash would be like letting lose an atomic hound in a crowded mall. Be messy and would and everyone would end up stepping in shit. Monarch has to be made only to poop only in their yard.
Captain Sunshine is very impressively multilayered. He's Batman reversed, but he's also Superman, and he's got Ray's powers and team, and he's a lot like Captain Eo, but his personality is closer to the guy who played Captain Eo.
Rusty retires to Spanakopita
Hank joins OSI and becomes a secret agent. Not exactly Brock 2.0 but still good.
Dean leaves the crazy world of superscience and lives a mudane but normal life. Probably gets married and has kids.
Can't think about anyone else.
That was only a lie that the master made up so that Triana would get away from him. The Halloween special indicated that aside from some premature balding, he's pretty much a normal human.
Orpheus isn't perfect but I still think he's a good dad. Better than Rusty, at least.
the masters job isn't to let people make their own decisions it's to make sure that magic has the best sorcerers. he lied to triana because dean would have taken triana a powerful sorceress from the life of magic. if his job was to help you be happy then he would have long ago told Orpheus to quit playing with magic and go fuck triana's mom
Dick is this guy.
This is a Batman who just never got over Jason.
Which I guess makes Hank and Monarch, Tim and Joker respectively.
>Rusty is actually pretending to be a massive leech because he wants his sons to have a semi-normal life.
>If he were to live up to the Venture name, he's be fighting against even more supervillains than he is now.
>As Venture name falls to obscurity, nobody will have any sort of vendetta towards Hank and Dean because the apple has fallen off so far from the tree that it's burrowed through the earth's crust and been incinerated by the molten core.
Nah it'll be somehow tied to the Investors. Jonas Jr was inthing some deal with them so either JJ will come back from the dead due to his deal and in consequnce all holdings will end up with them or something.
interesting i was thinking during the after credits scene when i first watched it. what if by faking his death and giving rusty the company the contract with the investors transfered to rusty from jonas.
It seemed clear to me that Jonas Jr. made a deal with the investors, to be wildly successful at the eventual cost of his life. That's why he died. That's why he outshined Rusty so bad.
They're all dead and Jj's deal was probably under the guise of being legitimate.
Jj hated all the supervillain shit so I doubt he'd just hop into bed with some out and out demons.
