Didn't Hank get shot?
3 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I think Hank got shot on the escalator when he threw the nerf ball at the henchman. He appears to be fine when he wakes up. Whats the deal with that?

Otherwise this episode is great. The violence is back!!!! Brock is my hero. Did anyone else notice that the little bit with the Monarch flying and holding dr.Girlfriend was a parode of the first superman movie but the monarch was playing the part of Lois Lane ? The bit with phantom limb tricking the henchmen was awesome.

I wonder if dr.venture is gonna have that eye patch for the rest of the series.
