People who hate Nathan will have a blast with this one as he gets brutally murdered again.

Literally LOLed at the Misfits' superhero outfits. Janky costumes have become a bit of a trope in the MCU, at least as a sort of starter uniform for superheroes (Spider-Man, Captain America, Daredevil, Hellcat) before they get their more tailored gear. Also dug the King Kong homage.

Wondered about Jessica's dad; we've seen people who seemed to have psychological effects accompanying their powers (the first probation officer, Tim in the last episode), but did this guy have any actual powers? His eyes going bloodshot when he's getting ready to kill don't count.

Jessica's dad's power, beyond the red eyes, could be delusion like the video game guy had. Recycled/ leftover idea perhaps.

But yeah, heh, King Kong. And neat use of Kelly's power.

And Nathan's padded muscles. He should have said "ape" not gorilla. Monkey =/= Ape.
