HOW COLD MAN MAKE FIRE? XD

What in the world was that ending clip? c.c I don't even have the faintest idea.

Really intriguing villains, really fun, I could see at least one of them being a Vengeance deck.

Yeah that ending clip was very weird.  I thought for a moment it has started into  another episode.

I can only assume it's a preview of things to come. Like, they were discussing a new theme song a few episodes ago. Could be related?

They're both well steeped in comic lore, especially Adam. Yeah, I'm sure it wasn't an accident. But it's different enough to be its own thing -- and at least they didn't evolve it into an anti-hero. ;-)

I mentioned this on the Realm of Discord, but the story A&C seem to be riffing on here isn't just a Venom/Spider-Man one:  rather, it's also from an Iron Man one:  LINK here.

Joe Quesada, in a March 2000 storyline, wrote an arc in which Tony's armor started acting independently of him, after his S.K.I.N pre-programming subroutines go haywire.  Effectively, the armor becomes obsessed with Tony, having picked up on the romantic feelings he has for Rumiko Fujikawa.  Effectively, it plays out the same way the AZ storyline does.

I had heard of that story but don't read any solo Ironman stpries 

I also avoid most things connected to joe quesadilla

Remember, don't turn that frown upside down! Turn it into Eldritch Power to summon our Dark Master to Spite a world that has wronged you.

No, Technovore is something different: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Technovore
Also, it was created earlier than the sentient-armor storyline.
