Loved it
26 March 2017 | by danielbcordellSee all my reviews

I think some other reviewers are missing the point. Music Meister's comic canon power is making people sing. He did just that. Check out "Music Meister The World is Mine" on YouTube for an actual comic accurate representation to show the singing is still a thing in other mediums. Sure his personality may be different, but changes like that are what makes adaptations better. We don't need the same thing over and over again. And it was a cheesy episode, but this is a TV show about superheroes. The subject is cheesy anyway. I loved it.
