This one really hit home for me. I enjoyed this one more than any other one since Wireless. Awesome costumes, especially Kathleen's. Puns are manly, but only when men say them obviously. Unfortunately Electro Volt learned this the hard way, and she was never heard from again...

Edit: Jer has the Pink Elephant of Zod!? I wanted that one, but Zod said he was sold out!

Definitely a good video. very clever! Kathleen was hilarious as the go-getter hero, and Matt's late entrance after the credits, while a little predictable, still was a good laugh. I nearly choked with Paul's grappling hook troubles at the very beginning. All and all, well done. The music was a nice touch at the beginning and during MegaMan's arrival....but it was a little overwhelming when the Wizard and ElectroVolt's arrival...maybe tone it down a little?

I thought the whole thing was pretty much flawless. Kathleen was rally good at playing the ridiculously bubbly person, as usual. And it's always nice to see Paul as the main character.

The one thing that bothered me was Matt's character. I was expecting. . . 3 Man! He's made of three men! He's 9 Man and 6 Man's little brother!

Very nice. I was grinning throughout, but Matt's entrance in the end cracked me up. Great job!

Good job Jaebird.

I dunno, the banter was really funny but the big punchlines were basically the exact same joke two times and then again on the stinger.

Costumes were great though.

I think the model for Triple Threat looks too buff, but other than that they look pretty good.

I enjoyed this video. I predicted what the stinger was gonna be, but the line and the delivery was still really good. Paul's entrance at the beginning was well done, and I liked how James remained frozen in shot the entire time. Though with the lighting and angle of the shot, the mustache looked terribly unconvincing.

The music suits the video well. I think it's pretty awesome that you have a quality source for music now. Thanks much to Bradley Rains for lending his talent.

I'm interested to know how you put together the costumes, though I imagine you'll go into detail regarding that in the upcoming podcast.

I think the repeated joke is what made this hilarious, once is understandable but 4 superheroes using the same font for their logo is just ludicrous and therefore funny.

I loved the serious batman-esque opening, it really felt like the intro to a superhero film, and then James' seriousness in the face of Paul's entrance had me in stitches. I also loved Jer trying to hide the smoke machine.

I was half expecting their bickering to continue and just have a large explosion on the horizon or something, but it was still funny. I look forward to the LRRCast for this.

Different style, but interesting nonetheless. I love stupid superhero/villain antics. Wish I had a screenshot of the character I made for City of Villans, Mark Pain the Southern Gentleman.

This, though I expected some intentionally sappy line about the 3 of them working together rather than 3man.

Also, my dick just shrank a little bit after what jaebird posted.

While watching this, I was actually thinking to myself, "Wait, they're not going to end this without a "3" are they? Are they!?" And no, you weren't.

Also, James + mustache = win.

Absolutely loved it. Bubbly Kathleen just made me smile uncontrollably. James Moustache was immense too!

I demand more stories involving these characters in the future!

Yet another great example of taking something simple and making it hilarious. And the costumes were amazing. I think we're looking at some new LRR cannon right here, and I'm incredibly tempted to work on some "LoadingReadyLeague" involving these heroes and CanadaMan

Awesome vid, I hope we see more of these heroes. So many great moments especially the beginning with the failed first attempt with the grappling hook. Definite Lols.

...The three-dom pun might have been worse than all of Kathleen's combined. Funny vid, but in a much subtler way. I expected a little more bickering about the shared symbol, but that's just me.

Would you also include Man who is Super so that James had a part too?

Of course. Actually, thinking about it, The Man Who Is Super probably has a higher success rate than the other super heroes..

Loved this one. Bent over in stitches when Kathleen came along. :D
