The Venture Bros.
The Sovereign is actually the boys mother.The so called Sovereign is a shapeshifter impersonating David Bowie. For all we know it'd be easy for someone like 'him' to jump the gender barrier. Afterwards as soon as they were born 'he' left them with Dr. Venture out of convenience and probably shame.
J.J. is so successful specifically because Jonas never got the chance to raise him.Despite his name Jonas Jr. represents what Rusty could have been if Jonas Sr. wasn't his father. Rusty inadvertently did his brother a favor by swallowing him. Being trapped inside Rusty kept him safe from the traumatic boy adventurer lifestyle and allowed him to develop as his own person. If Rusty had been born to any other parent he would be just as successful as his brother and the world would be better for it.
Dr Venture is the Venture brotherís version of the Joker and the reason why Myra went crazy...(The Dark Knight Version) Not only did the world ignore his suffering they made it their entertainment. Those pills he takes may allow him to repress his horrific memories but is also represses his drive and ingenuity. So if he stops taken them he starts to be able to think clearly but also starts to hallucinate then remember and finally go insane. As for Myra going crazy itís pretty simple. Just think about it you've fallen in love with the man you've been ordered to protect. He reciprocates your feelings. Down the line you find out that he's been taking drugs and you get him to stop. Suddenly he starts to hallucinate and talk to himself. Itís not a big problem at this point so you get him the help he needs. But then his personality completely changes becoming utterly insane. Furthermore he starts to use more of the intelligence and engineerial skills he's inherited from his father. You have to stop him but he's just to cunning and powerful. It literally takes everything you have, every ounce of strength, skill, and intellect to stop him. In the end you accomplish the impossible and he's back to normal but for you there's literally nothing left. Thus in the emptiness of your mind new thoughts start to enter the fray. Youíve given everything to him that make's him yours body and soul. He notices the change knowing nothing of what caused it thanks to the government covering it up, so his feelings for you start to change and he begins to spend more and more time away from you. Finally those dreaded words are uttered from his lips I want to see other people. And in the confines of your mind you hear that universal phrase if i can't have him no one will Besides the O.R.B this is the real reason Venture is assigned a body guard because everyone is deathly afraid of the Jester returningÖ
The O.R.B. storyline wasn't an abandoned arc...I know a lot of people assume it was but look back over season three,When Col. Venture and the old Guild are arguing about the O.R.B. it is gold,but when Rusty and Billy find it in the museum it is silver...also when Sandow apparently crushes the Col.'s headit is later revealed in season four that he actually destroyed the O.R.B. but you can hear the sound of the O.R.B.cracking.So I think the storyline has thus far gone as is expected and that it will at least earn itself a mention in season five...
Rocket is Sally and Ned's son.Among other reasons, this may partly explain why she wants to get away as soon as possible and why learning that "Dr. Venture's" urine has tested positive for pregnancy has caused her even greater despair than her abandonment by the latter. Her husband also happens to be one of the few people who knows what Ned looked like before the accident, so any resemblance that Rocket has to his supposed uncle will become readily apparent later on.
Rusty Venture was cloned by Jonas as a child, just as he clones the boys.Mr. Brisby told Rusty his father mentioned the fact that he master human cloning, and Rusty had a very adventurous and sometimes nearly fatal childhood. The beds which save the boys memories were built by Jonas and the computer which stores their memories is clearly old and in a state of almost disrepair, matching the Jonas built mainframes of M.U.T.H.E.R.
Kim will return.Possibly to arch Triana.
The old guild are the literal ancestors of the current main castThink about it. The old guild as shown in the ORB episode has a Dr Venture, obviously Rusty's grandfather. It also has Sandow, who is similar to Brock. We have Crowley, who might just be the same person as Orpheus (master necromancer dodging death is not that much of a stretch), if not his grandfather. We have Samuel Clemens/Mark Twain, dressed all in white with albino hair, an openly gay sarcastic yet cheerful Oscar Wilde, French pulp villain Fantomas... The parallels are all over the place.
The old guild is the predecessors of the Guild of Calamitous IntentThis is pretty much a no-brainer, considering the remarks made by Oscar Wilde, and the uniforms worn by the henchmen in the flashback. Maybe The Phantom joined forces with Nikola Tesla after Venture Sr Sr's death, to create the modern guild.
The Monarch's real name is Malcolm Fictel.The reason he's arching Venture is that he's incensed that his childhood hero got away with the statutory rape of his cousin; Rusty's insistence that she said she was twenty simply adds fuel to the fire because he thinks that he's trying to lie his way out of it.
Is this the last we'll see of #24?At first I thought that was HELPeR's burning head falling into 21's arm. But seeing it again...no it isn't... So is half of our favorite Hench Duo DeadForReal?
#1 is still alive.They Never Found the Body, after all. He'd be the most obvious replacement for 24.
Jonas Venture Sr is still alive
Trianna's friend Kim is going to be the new #24.Dr. Girlfriend gave her a business card in "Victor. Echo. November." under the impression that she worked for the Guild. As far as we know, she still wants to be a supervillain, but she hasn't actually called Dr. Girlfriend yet. However, with the high, ahem, "turnover" rate among the Monarch's henchmen, we might see their first henchwoman in season 4.
Hank is going to be Killed Off for Real.He still believes that he is the Highlander. He no longer is.
When only one brother dies Dr. Venture has to kill the other one himself.Sort of gruesome but it would be the only way to keep the surviving brother from having a traumatic fit. In the death montage Hank dies by himself twice and Dean once. When the Satellite falls on Hank, Dean was right there and had to have seen it. Total freakout. He'd freak even more if Hank just mysteriously Comes back So Dr.V would have to "dispose of" the surviving son to keep things uncomplicated.
The "original" Venture brothers are still alive.There's little evidence for this one, but we don't know exactly how the first ones died. Presumably, Dr. Venture had to set up the cloning machine before the boys died the first time. If the originals are alive, they're probably either out in the world somewhere (and three years older than the "current" Ventures due to the combined time the clones have lost while dead) or they're trapped in the cloning machine, which might be similar to Dr. Venture's orphan-powered Joycan.
No, really! Dr. Venture knocked up Sky during the Season 2 premiere.He said that they were "going to have a child," but he wasn't clear about how far along he had gotten in this plan.
Brock Samson is Hank's father.It's been suggested, sort of. It would explain why Brock is so attached to the Venture family and calls them "his family" and why Dr. Venture is grooming only Dean to follow in his footsteps as a super-scientist, buying him a speed suit and all. (It could be argued that Dean is the obvious successor because he's smarter, but really the Venture Brothers are just about equally stupid.) Really, whenever the family splits up, they usually split up into Dr. Venture and Dean/Brock and Hank. Hank looks more like Brock than Dr. Venture, and, if these kinds of things are inherited, Hank's also attracted to Molotov Cocktease.
David Bowie has some history with Jonas VentureHow else could he have turned the conversation Venture had with Major Tom into the songs Space Oddity and Ashes to Ashes unless he'd been listening in? Perhaps they were enemies and recycling a tragic event of Venture's life into those songs was a way to mock him. Alternately, maybe they were friends and Jonas told Bowie what had happened so he'd write the songs to honor Major Tom.
Myra is/isn't/milkshake the Ventures' mother.Her story fits into the established timeline, and she knows things that an ordinary ex-American Gladiator wouldn't know (the learning beds, the fact that the Ventures ought to be older than they think they are,) but it can't be that simple.
Dr. Girlfriend and Brock have hooked up in the past.In "Hate Floats," Dr. Girlfriend knows everything about the security system on Brock's car, including a flamethrower hidden in the horn. When the boys ask her how she knows this, she says that she used to do some work with Truckules, who taught her how to hotwire anything. When Hank begins to ask how she knew about the flamethrower in particular, she cuts him off and changes the subject. This implies that Brock and Dr. Girlfriend have some kind of history. If they do, Brock vehemently denies it, as he brings her femininity into question at every turn and is one of the only ones bothered by her deep voice. In another episode, when Brock breaks into the Monarch's cocoon, Dr. Girlfriend asks Brock if he's going to have his way with her, and Brock says that he wasn't really planning to. This exchange still works if they have a history. Maybe Brock hooked up with Dr. Girlfriend before he heard her voice (it would certainly be his style) and now is trying to pretend like it never happened.
Dr. Girlfriend's eggo is preggo.Whatever Dr. Girlfriend told the Monarch at the end of season 2, it apparently wasn't enough to "change things" much, since they appear to be still together in the season 3 trailer. The most obvious theory is that she's now Dr. Baby-Mama. Either that or the big reveal is something totally silly and anticlimactic. Or Perhaps she's pregnant by Phantom Limb/Monstroso/David Bowie/#24/Dr. Venture/caterpillar Dr. Venture/a Murderous Moppet.
Brock is not Dermott Fictel's father.(Of course, the events of the "The Buddy System" overwhelmingly imply that everyone's favorite sociopath sired the bully. Wild Mass Guessers have no truck with overwhelming implications.)
The boys really can turn into Mecha-Shiva.Mecha-Shiva! Mecha-Shiva! Mecha-Shiva!
The show takes place in the same continuity as The Tick.I've seen this idea kicking around...
Sergeant Hatred is going to molest the hell out of the boys. Again.In "I Know Why the Caged Bird Kills," it is revealed that the boys were once "touched inappropriately" by Sergeant Hatred and that "most of it was awful." Sergeant Hatred is now Dr. Venture's new arch-enemy, but he doesn't seem to recognize the boys and he's not allowed to get within 50 feet of an "beautiful minor" because of his history as a sex offender. The boys don't seem to react very much to seeing Sergeant Hatred again, which is pretty odd. It can't even be ascribed to cloning-induced memory loss, since Dean remembered him in the second season, after they were most recently cloned. Anyway, once Sergeant Hatred figures out that the boys are actually 19, and therefore no longer minors, all bets are off!
Jonas Venture is still alive.We've never learned exactly how he died. Maybe he just went into hiding, or into space on business related to his last big project. Anyway, it would be perfect if he came back and ended up liking Jonas Jr. more. That would be just about the only way to screw up Dr. Venture's life any more than it already is.
Brock's ultimate goal is to kill Dr. Venture.What Dermott said was foreshadowing - that "his dad" was in black ops, probably undercover to kill someone.
Brock will be the Big Bad of Season 4.It's a theory that this troper's had for a while, and the Season 3 finale cements it, sort of. Brock's work with the Ventures has been pretty much a dead-end job for him - he's MUCH more qualified for better work. I'd imagine that eventually he'd get pissed at the Ventures for this (and their general idiocy), snap, and start an effort to kill them. Not only would he be a formidable opponent himself, he even has the smarts, as exhibited by his record-time organization of a counterattack on the Guild in the S2 finale. It seems like it wouldn't be too difficult for him to organize himself a headquarters, a bunch of mooks, and a plan. It helps that Brock quits working for the Ventures in Season 3, finally pissed about everyone and everything working against him.
Dr, Venture and the Monarch are relatedThey have extremely similar features - similar nose, red hair, goatees. One possible explanation is that Dr. Venture Senior is the Monarch's father, explaining his resentment for Rusty - he was the child that got all the love and attention, while the Monarch was the ignored or unknown result of some fling and he never got to take part in the Venture legacy. I wouldn't be surprised in the least if Jonas Venture had illegitimate kids all over the place, and we have yet to hear a real reason for why the Monarch hates Dr. Venture so very much. It fits!
Dr. Quymn's "daughters" are really Half-Identical TwinsThe one straddling Dean is biologically male, which explains the padded bra (it wasn't just padded, it was entirely fake!).
Dr. Quymn is Dr. Venture's Half-SisterIs this even a WMG? Their faces look exactly the friggin' same, and it's overwhelmingly implied via flashback that Dr. Venture Sr. and her mother were involved even before the key party scenes. It's a good thing Rusty's an idiot who can't catch a break, or that would have been seriously gross. And yeah, that makes the twins the boys' cousins. Honestly, if this is the worst thing that happens to Hank and Dean this season, they should consider themselves lucky.
The Monarch played Rusty in the Rusty Venture cartoon show and it's why he hates the Venture family!
Kano did not kill Dr. Jonas Venture Sr.Kano was pretty tight-lipped about it, but that doesn't mean he did it.
Nikola Tesla took over the Guild and became the Guild Sovereign.David Bowie played him in The Prestige, and in it he builds a duplication machine that can be used for humans. Perhaps this was basis of the Venture family's cloning technology.
Molotov had sent the assassins after Brock.Think about it. The OSI had no intention of killing him, yet at the same time their 3 top assassins had been sent after him. Usually assassins aren't meant to bring their quarry alive. Plus, Molotov contacted the Cleaner to bail Brock and Dr. Venture and remove the evidence. Molotov has her own agenda and needs someone capable of handling a few of the rough spots. The 3 assassins were hired to test Brock, and he passed.
#21 will attempt to follow in his boss' footsteps.
Dr. Venture and Brock are the result of a Stable Time Loop.Dr. Venture did have a child with Sky (see above) and that child was Jonas Sr., who went back in time to become an adventurer and father Rusty. According to the O.S.I. file in "Past Tense", Brock is the child of a single mother and has one brother; no father is identified. Like the Brothers themselves, Venture Sr. fathered "a smart one and an athletic one". Brock and Dr. Venture are half-brothers.
The Monarch's obsession with Dr. Venture is sexually motivated.Tons of Foe Yay put aside, in "Tears Of A Sea Cow" not only does he screw a robot with Dr. Venture's face, he also dodges the question of why he's so fixated on Dr. Venture very suspiciously. In "Past Tense", which details the time period in which the two became enemies, Venture even calls him a "closet case." And there's evidence for him being bisexual elsewhere in the show (i.e. making out with Stiv Bators, having threesomes with other men), making it all the more plausible. To top it all off, the show has made direct comparisons between arching and romantic relationships. You don't have to be a superscientist to figure this one out.
The Master is actually The Master.He's planning on making Dr. Orpheus the next Torgo.
Brock Samson is the son of Doc Samson.He inherited his father's gamma-ray mutation and the super-strength and Nigh-Invulnerability that comes with it, and like his father, his "hulked out" form is more an idealized human body than a big green monster, and he has full control of it. Also like his father, he prefers to remain in this form at all times... except Brock showed no interest in science as a child, much to the disappointment of his father, and instead used his superhuman abilities to excel at sports. His father disapproved, both because this was seen as unfair to the normal players and because he feared that Brock did not realize the extent of his strength. He was tragically proven right when Brock accidentally killed a fellow player during practice, and this drove the two even further apart, leading to Brock's joining the military and later, OSI.
Herr Trigger to return as a cyborg.A bit of psycho gun-fetishisting assassin, a bit of motorbike, loads of gun implants, and maybe the occasional HEL Pe R part for good measure. Let's face it, he was already pretty unkillable as a human. Can you imagine him returning as some sort of Terminator-like creation? It would certainly be awesome.
The Guild killed all superheroesThe show has no superpowered Protagonists (apart from Richard Impossible; I'm not counting his family, since their powers are utterly useless), whereas it has several superpowered Guild members, such as Torrid. Perhaps the Guild carried out the destruction of all superheroes, so as to protect its members.
Myra will join the BlackheartsFemale, batshit crazy, still in pretty good shape, knows all the inner workings of OSI - she seems to fit the profile.
Triana and Dean will hookupJossed. The Master shows Triana that Dean's love for her will make him even more pathetic than he already is and that them being together will not look good, so Triana chooses to let him down easily.
Dr. Venture is a clone Himself.In the same danger prone world that repeatedly killed Hank and Dean, Rusty must have died at some point. Brisby said that Jonas Venture had researched cloning. He did so to replace the dead Rusty. It would explain His indifference towards Rusty as He wasn't His real son. Ditto for Rusty's attitude towards His own children.
The cloning process is flawed which is why Hank and Dean tend towards such levels of stupid/oddity.Jonas created the original cloning device and memory upload process. The show has already implied that Rusty isn't exactly all that good with maintaining his dads old creations, let alone repairing them when they break down. Combine that with a punch-card system for storing and cataloging memories along with gaps of time lost in memory but not in physical growth, as well as any odd body memories (didn't I have a scar here? and similar things) and their actions become more understandable. The issue isn't lack of information or common sense so much as it is that frequently their minds aren't really processing and understanding it the way they should.
The Monarch will take control of the GuildWhen the kid gloves come off the Monarch proves lethally effective. He's gone toe to toe with both the OSI and Guild soldiers, putting up a damn good fight against both. Each season he just keeps getting more effective and dangerous. It makes sense that he'll eventually take the top job. After all he is The Monarch.
OSI is in fact an evil organization.Let's look at it a bit differently, they allow the Guild of Calamitous Intent to exist because it provides a justification to their existence/funding to any kind of middling probe. They also use the guild as a way to tie up existing protagonists/heroes by giving them a chance to be seen as heroes by the general populace as well as creating a system that funnels the superpowered/super scientist crowd into flashy shows that keep them (protagonists/antagonists) and the public occupied. Gathers managed to realize this through his obsessive digging, in an effort to figure out how far the rot had spread he left OSI and tried to reorganize what was left of the last major power SPHINX and try to monkey-wrench the existing system, possibly setting in action what made Brock a free agent again.
Dean and Hank are going to turn into a Cain and Abel thing.Hank's resentment at being second best to Dean in their father's eyes is going to push him to become a supervillain and begin arching Dean, fulfilling the idea Killinger tried to start with Rusty and JJ.
Kano didn't murder Dr. Venture but sabotaged the cloning rigJonas Sr. started fiddling with the Orb, whatever he did killed or severely injured him. He has the cloning tanks set up to transfer him into a new body. Kano killing him directly wouldn't do anything, since a new clone could come in. Instead he sabotages the cloning apparatus. The problem was that he did too good a job of it, he had only intended to degrade it to a point where Jonas wouldn't be able to continue but either ended up having him emerge brain dead or something similar. Kano either leaves Jonas to die or puts him out of his misery and in intense guilt becomes silent. The sabotage to the cloning device might also explain why Rusty refuses to use it on himself and why Hank and Dead are as messed up as they are.
The Guild of Calamitous Intent was once known as the Evil League of Evil.Until David Bowie (then acting as Dead Bowie) staged a hostile takeover, killed Bad Horse, and became the Sovereign.
Batman really exists in the Venture Verse.There's actually quite a bit of evidence for this. Hank has a true bad ass in the form of Brock to idolize, but he seems to like Batman more. Its not likely he would prefer a fictional character to Brock. In the third season Dr. Venture picks up a ringing phone in the deserted sewers and seriously tries to call Batman. Marvel comics is repeatedly mentioned, but DC never is. The creators want to have him in the series but can't due to legal reasons so they have Captain Sunshine.
All the crap Jonas Sr. and the old Team Venture did will become public.It would fit into the show's theme where not only did the old team fail to be the kind of heroes the public thought them to be, but that they couldn't hide from the media, leaving them disgraced. Plus it would give Rusty some justice for all the crap he went through as a kid.
Kano did kill Dr. Venture.Namely, Jonas Venture's father. Which is why he's so tight-lipped even in the Rusty Venture Show.
#21 will join SPHINXIn "Ghosts" the guy actually knocked Brock fuckin' Samson on his ass, making him one of the few to do it without the aid of a weapon or truck (giving him the honorary title of "Complete Badass"). Do you REALLY think SPHINX would pass up the chance to get probably the only man to ever land a blow on Brock and live long enough for his brain to register that?
Triana becomes the go-to magician for a future incarnation of Team Venture headed by Dean.A Distant Finale to the series will show Dr. Dean Venture, his bodyguard Hank, and resident sorceress Triana Orpheus. No bets on whether or not they romantically hook up.
By the end of the series, OSI and The Guild will become defunct.Both organizations have been weakened over the course of the series. The Guild already experienced two attempted coups (a la Phantom Limb) and their greatest weapon, the ORB, no longer works. OSI, meanwhile, has become corrupt, causing some of their most competent agents to defect and form SPHINX. The Venture family, which is symbolically important to both groups, is dying out (since J.J. has no children and the cloning process has damaged Hank and Dean‚Äôs DNA to the point where they can no longer produce any viable heirs). Many of the big names of the series (Henry Killinger, The Sovereign/ David Bowie, Hunter Gathers, The Master, etc.) have been actively working to achieve and orcastrated the entire series to this end.
The Monarch is a clone of Dr. VentureSo far we have zero info concerning The Monarch's birth parents, also The Monarch and Dr. Venture does share some similarities in terms of personality. Who is to say that Jonas didn't create a clone of his son just incase Rusty doesn't make it. Jonas Venture probably abandoned The Monarch for some reason and The Monarch was raised by the Monarch Butterflies instead. The resentment The Monarch has over Rusty could be due to abandonment issues he suffered from Jonas.
Hank and Dean's birth mom will appear in the series finaleIf the Venture Brothers ever get a final Season I'm sure the introduction of Hank and Dean's birth mother is being saved so the Venture Family could have that one big family reunion.
Billy will leave Pete White.Every other character in the show has managed to have some form of development: Brock's joined SPHINX, #21's buffed up, Sgt. Hatred is (at least trying) to battle his pedophilic urges, Dr. Venture has grown much friendlier to Dean, Triana's moved on to her mother's to train...even the boys are growing, albeit Hank more quickly than Dean. The only reason Billy is stuck in a dead end is because of Pete leeching off of him. Hunter Gathers even said as much. I'd be surprised if Billy ended up never cutting the dead weight that is Pete White off.
This was originally supposed to be a show based in The World of Darkness."Go Team Ventrue!" But then there was a typo.
Brock is a cyborg.When Gathers said he was "a quarter Winnebago", he wasn't talking about the Indian tribe. It explains why he's so into his car...
Brock is a Replicant.Given his ultimate obedience, albeit reluctant, to Dr. Venture. This would be an appropriate caretaker for 2 clones, (Three, if Rusty is one as well.) If he found the secret of the Orb himself, he could be terminated. There was already lots of talk of how he is just a pawn from Hunter. This also explains how he has progressed from a grunting killing machine to a more sane human being, eventually becoming independent by quitting. He is gaining his own personality independent of his directives.
Dr. Henry Killinger is not evilAt times ruthless, but not evil. Everything he's done so far has actually done his subjects good (getting the Monarch and Dr. Girlfriend back together, showing Dr. Venture the dark path he was on), his plan is to redeem the entire superhero/supervillain system from the inside out
Brock, Sergent Hatred, and 21 team up to form The Order of the Tri-Badasses.Brock leaves Sphinx, Sergent Hatred gets Captain Sunshine to take over Operation Rusty's Blanket, and 21 has a Face-Heel Turn thanks to 24's ghost. The three of them join forces to fight the entire Guild of Calamitous Intent and use the team name "The Order of the Tri-Badasses" which is suggested by Dr Orpheus. They fight their way up through all of the guild members and the final battle will be against The Monarch, David Bowie, and Princess Tinyfeet.
Twins are a Venture family trait.Let's ignore any interfering factors about genetics for a moment. Hank and Dean are twins, and Rusty and Jonas Jr. technically were as well. If this were true, it could tie into the theory that Jonas Sr. isn't actually dead: it's his (semi?)-identical twin that died. And, okay, pushing it, but if Dr. Quymm really was Rusty's half-sister as an above WMG hypothesizes, Nancy and Drew would be examples of the twin trait, too. And, as mentioned, they'd also be... Hank and Dean's... half-cousins?
Hank and Dean will revert to their season 3 personalities.Being mind-wiped every other week is already making their minds buggy. Their minds will degrade from there until they stop functioning, which is going to require an even bigger mind wipe to erase the effects of the previous mind wipes. It will have to go all the way back to before Sphinx moved in next to the Venture Compound, which will coincidentally be sometime in season 3.
Someone is cloning henchmen.They have to be coming from somewhere. At the rate the Monarch goes through them the Guild would have run out of henchmen recruits by now. For some reason the high death rate isn't turning people away from henching, so either they get resurrected by a Guild Necromancer, or the Guild is being supplied with clones from someone. #21 doesn't know about this because it was in the same memo as the night-vision goggles and functioning wings. This explains #1's sudden return as "Zero" despite being dead and allows #24 to come back someday.
21 will arch the MonarchDr. Girlfriend will be inadvertently killed by the Monarch's poor planning and stupidity, leaving 21 to mourn the only way he knows how: by arching the person responsible. 21 clearly feels that the Monarch doesn't appreciate her enough, and that he would do things differently. It's been acknowledged by both 21 and Dr. Girlfriend that the Monarch is incapable of thinking about anyone but himself, to the point where he once simply ran away during arching and forgot about her standing there, leaving her stranded for hours. If The Monarch's bad decisions lead to her being killed, 21 will never forgive his former idol.
24's "unfinished business" was to convince Gary to quit working for the Monarch.24 doesn't want to see Gary die like he did in service to the Monarch. Once Gary finally decided to quit 24 vanished, having served his purpose.
24 realy was a ghost.Possibly related to the above. Consider that unless 21 has suddenly developed some sort of Extra-Sensory Perception, there was no way for him to know that Monstroso's henchmen were about to attack him and the Monarch in Pinstripes and Poltergeists. And if 24 was just an hallucination, then there was absolutely no point to the scene in Operation P.R.O.M. when 24 talks to the other recently deceased henchman after 21 had already left. As for Orpheus and Mr. Wendal, Orpheus was drunk, so his powers might have been off, and maybe Mr. Wendal was just some dead guy lying about who he was (24 doesn't seem to have gained any significant form of omnisentience since he died). 24's disappearance could be attributed to the above, 21's lack of belief after talking to Orpheus, burying 24's skull, or some combination thereof.
Gary will become the new leader of Sphinx.With Hunter Gathers placed in control of OSI the current Sphinx has no reason to exist. Everyone working for the current Sphinx will go back to the OSI leaving behind all the Egyptian themed tech. With Gary quitting the Monarch and by proxy the Guild, he will have to start his own organization. Using the recently abandoned Sphinx equipment Gary will remake Sphinx into an evil organization staffed with every minor character from the Guild of Calamitous Intent, and will fight both the Guild and OSI.
Mike Soriyama's robotic duplicate is Ghost Robot.When Hank discovers Mike Soriyama's body, he says something along the lines of "He's a ghost robot!" Ghost Robot is a robot who died and gained a soul, and the Soriyama bot died.
Monstroso survived the fall that killed Molotov.He is a big guy. And don't think for a minute that Mol couldn't have survived.
Dean will start standing up for himself more
Molotov and Monstroso aren't deadI'm certain that I wasn't the only one who felt the finale of season 4 concerning Mol just seemed too well planned. Besides, it would kind be an ass pull to have all that build up between Brock and her just get pushed aside like some random "you missed your chance, sorry." moment. The way I see it; Molotov and Monstroso planned everything in advance (or at least Mol did), and the whole thing of them now being an item, and the escorts being with Mol was just a massive ruse to rattle Brock (which seems to be the foundation of their relationship). Look at these facts:
Race Bannon didn't die, and is moonlighting as Mr. CardholderThere's a little evidence towards this. Not only do they look nearly identical, but both are revealed to be high-ranking OSI agents. It's possible Race faked his own death to take up the identity of Mr. Cardholder, then, along with Mr. Doe, used his new position to enact his plan to replace General Treister by making him look insane.
Dean will want to be an apprentice necromancer, while Hank decides to join the OSI when he grows upIt's the perfect solution for the boys - Dean gets to be closer to Triana while learning to battle evil, Hank will get to fight supervillains, and both will be action heroes like they've always wanted. Meanwhile, Dr. Venture is left with nothing, which is pretty much par for the course for him.
#21 will start working for the Ventures and/or BrockBeing a mook used to seem like the coolest job in the world. Less so now that his friend #24 has been killed. The Monarch set the bomb that blew up him and H.E.L.P.eR, but it's entirely plausible that the Murderous Moppets detonated it. Now investigating and/or seeking within the Fluttering Horde is tricky, because the Moppets are still in good with Dr. Mrs., and because the Monarch is basically whipped. Meaning that #21 would have to go to someone else with resources.
Hunter Gathers is manipulating Brock as part of a Batman Gambit.Let's look at the history of Brock and Gathers for a moment. From the beginning Gathers seemed to be the one training Brock. During his time in OSI he was the only one helping Gathers dealing with the Guild of Calamitous intent, the others in OSI apparently believing the Guild was dead and that Sphinx was the threat. From then on out we get him giving Brock data but in each case it seems to be designed to twist or push him in certain directions. When Gathers got his sex change it has this whole event that makes Brock feel rather unnerved about most things around him. He gives Brock information about ORB and gives the implication that OSI wants to kill him, using Brock to wipe out other assassins as well as getting him away from the Ventures. Now, we see that apparently he is part of or leading Sphinx with Brock as part of his team following Brock showing what look like signs of shell shock or just being overwhelmed with all that happened.
Brock is Dermott's father... and X is His mother!!Why hide the identity of the mother when She picks Him up from the daycamp, because it is someone we've seen before. I vote for Leslie Cohen (the girl that Mike Soriyama liked in college who Brock totally tapped).
Nikki will become pregnant by HankNikki is pregnant as a result of her brief tryst with Hank. This will be another tangled knot in the Venture family, and Hank will have no recollection of the part he played with Nikki.
Brock is DermottOk...this one is kinda complicated, but the fact of Brock and Dermott's resemblance is that they're really one and the same. I think that Dermott is the "Original" and his boasting is just that, pointless boasting. Somehow he ends up going back in time to whatever the relevant time would be because of his own douchebaggery and realizes that he needs to actually back up his bragging. Thus the OSI training, real adventure, and realistically a mellowing. Brock isn't embarrassed of Dermott because he might be his son, He's embarrassed because he remembers being that douche in a previous life.
The rookie Sphinx agent that Brock was working with is #24.I have no basis for this. I know he is definitely dead, but maybe Dr Venture ended up making a clone, or whatever. I was suspicious when his voice was muffled and unlike other Sphinx red shirts his face was totally covered. If it wasn't for the fact that he was incompetent, I would guess it was #1.
The Monarch's birth name is Malcolm Fictel.The Monarch is arching Doctor Venture because he doesn't believe his former hero's protestations that his cousin Nikki said she was twenty; every attempt Venture makes to explain himself or make things right simply make Monarch angrier.
Molotov is Killed Off for RealNo, I don't believe that for a second, but it did say Wild Mass Guessing...
The girls at the prom really were just hired ladies of the evening, and not Molotov's assassins.Everything I've read has them being too drugged up from Rusty's mutant Spanish Fly to do their job, but I just assumed that Molotov was lying to get Brock off her case.
Princess Tinyfeet won't be taking Hatred back.Look at her expressions all throughout the prom, she doesn't look like she's just happily reconciled with her ex-husband, she looks terrified. Something tells me that even though she was cool as being used as a hostage, with the fun of getting stuffed in a trunk and all, she did not expect The Monarch and Dr. Mrs. The Monarch to try their hands at marriage counseling once they got there. And being bound and gagged the whole time it was impossible for her to clear up the misunderstanding.
There will be a Whole Episode Flash Back about Dr. Venture's first couple of clonings the boysMost likely there will be alot of Tear Jerker moments or slight Cerebus elements
The Monarch played Rusty Venture in the Rusty Venture showWell, it's pretty clear that Rusty in the show, and the real Rusty are not the same kid. The real Rusty has straight teeth, and the kid in the show and kid Monarch have crooked teeth, they also have similure hair. He could have easily got the part after he went back to the city to claim his inheritance, and Phantom Limb sais Monarch has a trust fund, well the money his parents left him could only strech so far, he could have used some of it to pay for Collage, but having money from the very succesful Rusty Venture show too makes sense. Especially since most child actors don't get that money until they turn 18.
Dean will become a Villain and join the Monarch or another Guild Member, maybe Phantom LimbConsidering that now his hopes and dreams for having Trianna have been crushed (and his own stupidity led her to dropping him as a friend). Instead of trying to fight the villains now, he will start to apprentice himself, becoming The Mole at the Venture Compound. Eventually, the series'll end on a Cain and Abel battle between Dean and Hank.
In the next season the boys will really go off to start their own lives, each with their own body guard.Brock will rejoin and either stay with Doc or go with Hank, Hatred will stay with whoever Brock doesn't go with, and Gary will join up to protect Dean. Of course they'll still end up with two of the groups or all of them getting together pretty often.
Jonas Jr. is secretly evilEverything thus far has just been part of his cover. Season 4 will reveal that his space station is equipped with a giant laser and his declaration of Spider-Skull Island as a sovereign nation is so he can exploit Diplomatic Impunity.
Mrs. The Monarch killed 24She accidentally sat on the switch that activated the bomb inside H.E.L.P.eR, making the entire situation a Brick Joke throwback to when she accidentally deployed the Monarch's wings her ass in the season 3 premiere. This will likely leave 21/Gary facing a difficult situation, does he take revenge on the woman he loves? Or does he finally let go of his obsession with avenging 24?
Dr. Mrs. The Monarch is a Mike Soriyama robot.We know Mike could create realistic humans because he made one of himself, capable of holding conversations and having emotional outbursts. Dr. Mrs. The Monarch's big un-reveal in the escape pod wasn't that she was pregnant or any such nonsense- she finally confessed that she was a robot. The only evidence backing this up is that at King Gorilla's out-of-jail party, she quips that they're "not getting any younger." The Monarch, for no clear reason, says "one of us isn't getting much older either." Instead of referring to King Gorilla's state of near-death, the Monarch was refuting his wife's statement by pointing out that she has all the time in the world.
Dr. Killinger is Satan.
Triana will break up with her boyfriend
The Monarch hates Dr. Venture because...
We may see more of Alternate Universe Rusty]]
Professor Impossible is correct, Rocket isn't really his sonHis wife Sally had an affair with a Namor analogue due to her husband's lack of interest in her.
The Revenge Society will start arching DeanDean appointed David Bowie as the Sovereign, dashing Phantom Limb's plans to take over the Guild. He posed as a girl, got engaged to Baron Underbheit, then revealed himself to be a boy, costing Underbheit his throne. And now he's burned down Professor Impossible/Incorrigible's company while he and the rest of the Revenge Society were inside. They've got good reasons to hate Dean, and it would fit in great with the show's themes of following/living in the footsteps/shadow of your parents if Dean has to go through the same arch-enemy crap as his father.
The Ventures are all hermaphroditesThat's why none of them seem to have mothers, and why Dr. Venture occasionally lactates: they've got a weird chromosonal condition that gives them certain female sexual traits, including the ability to be impregnated by themselves. Hank and Dean being conceived because Dr. Venture made a mess on himself while masturbating . . . you gotta admit, that'd be this show's style.
Rusty is being phased out as the main character.Ok, this kind of walks the line between WMG and analysis, but since it also predicts what's going to happen in the future, I think it can go here. In early seasons it was pretty clear that Rusty, rather than his sons, was the main character, and the focus of the show was on his failure. However, the focus has shifted. It's no longer about simply failing, its about coping with failure, moving on, and finding a place for yourself in spite of your shortcomings...and Rusty is the only character whose development doesn't reflect this. Hank and Dean are both beginning to grow up, in spite of their father (Hank in particular demonstrated this in "Pomp and Circuitry," where he passed every test SPHINX threw at him, and they had to come up with an excuse to not accept him). Brock has found roles both with SPHINX and as a Papa Wolf to the boys, even though his assignment to the Ventures was originally a case of Kicked Upstairs. We've seen Sergeant Hatred battling his inner demons, and he's likewise been helping the boys to become more self-reliant (which was Brock's major failing). 21 has Taken A Level In Badass due to 24's death. Doctor Girlfriend and The Monarch are finally in a mostly-happy relationship, and even the Monarch seems to be questioning why defeating Dr. Venture is so important to him from time-to-time. Basically, everyone except Dr. Venture is well on their way to an Earn Your Happy Ending, and by the end of the show Dr. Venture will have little bearing on anyone, as they all take their rightful places.
Alternate Universe Rusty represents a world in which Jonas left Rusty at home.So, basically, instead of being traumatized, Rusty was desperate for adventure, and bored with his life, which motivated him to aspire for greatness, rather than become a curmudgeon seeking only profit to fill the void left by his lost childhood. His "hit play on broadway" is about his adult life, trying to live up to his father.
Alternative to the above theoryThat universe Rusty was like the main universe's Jonas Junior, the super suave and successful son of Jonas Sr. His brother is the unsuccessful jerk the main Rusty become.
Raven, Triana's boyfriend, will not only be revealed to be a vampire as everyone's expecting, but...Will find out, at some point, that he has a black ancestor. Causing, or being a result of, a conflict with Jefferson Twilight.
When/If General Treister returns...He'll be a Hulk.
Hunter will run the O.S.I into the groundIf his time as the head of SPHINX is any indicator, General Treister's hard work to root out Doe and Cardhorlder as moles for the Guild of Calamitous Intent will be for nothing, the O.S.I will probably be crawling with Guild agents now that it's operated by a man who couldn't realize that more than 90% of his organization was made up of moles.
Doctor Orpheus has powers on a cosmic scaleHe keeps the invisible threads of reality working, the problem is this means he has to keep every thing at status que, and because of this all though he is in fact the most powerful magic user in the world (the master exist outside of it) his powers are used so frequently and only to keep the universe from falling in to chaos he appears to be a relitivly useless character, its also why most of the magic community respects him so much going off this it makes sense he would live near a scientist, scientist work to understand how to push the rules of the universe with out breaking them, Orpheus is there that means the rules are enforced and meaning science and magic as doctor venture said slowly become the same thing with different names
Doctor Orpheus will eventually hook up with a Captain Ersatz of Clea.
The Monarch will try to bond with either (or both) Dean and/or Hank to get under Rusty's skin.With Hank and Dean being treated badly in their own ways by their father, and Dean being rejected by Triana, it might push either one to either seek the comfort of the Monarch, or the Monarch (convinced by his wife) will use this situation to his advantage.
Brock's mother will show up
Truckules is related to BrockTruckules is half man half truck and Brock is a quarter Winnebago.
Thaddeus Venture's grandfather is still alive
Sgt Hatred's bosom is a side effect of his medsIRL pedophiles are chemically castrated to curb their urges, and the same is true of Hatred
Hank is in a cycle of having sex with Nikki learning the truth and wiping his memoryExplaining why he said "oh check your watch it works for me sometimes," implying that it has happened repeatedly.
Season 5 will show Rusty getting his life back on trackat least a little.
Triana will be attracted to new goth/emo DeanBut he will reject her.
Shoreleave will become JJ's OSI Bodyguard
SPHINX will become a Suicide Squad knockoffGary cant run it alone and it would be epic.
Gary, Billy and White will work togetherWould be awsome
Hank already knows that he's a clone but doesn't care.That's because he actually IS the Bat.
SPHINX Commander will be backWouldn't be the first time a supposedly killed character has popped back up healthy as ever.
Dean and Thalia will eventually become an Official Couple.
Dean and Thalia had sex.And Thalia will come back in season 6, a few months pregnant, somehow figuring out that Dean is the father, and hilarity will ensue, because neither of them can remember when she could have gotten pregnant from him. Or, even better, she uses the services of a sorcerer to divine the identity of the father, and that turns out to be an assignment given to Triana as a test, and she ends up seeing too much of the deed, and things just get aukward. Oh, and the baby wouldn't have been affected by Dr. Salazar's antidote, so he/she would have four arms and telepathic powers like mommy, but a less pointy head and some hair, courtesy of daddy's non-mutated DNA.
Hank can't get that robot costume off.When it locked up, it also locked on. C'mon, it's a cool suit and all, but he didn't even keep his Batman costume on 24/7.
Ms. Fictel learned about Nikki and Hank, and she is pissed.She showed anger when she saw Hank in her home, and after the whole Rusty/Nikki thing, she would think that her daughter knew better than to sleep with someone who is underage. Unlike Brock and some other characters, she was not okay with the double-standard!
Dr. Killinger is the leader of The Investors.They both have similar manners of dress, keep The Guild in check, and have mystical powers, though Killinger is the only to speak and use truly cosmic levels of power.
Gary will join OSI as a superhero, and become a new arch for The Monarch.The Monarch will not resist the urge to wage battle against his former, "traitorous" henchman. Gary, as always, will call himself The Viceroy, and may even retain his old butterfly theme.
Myra Brandish will join the Revenge Society
The Sovereign is Ziggy Stardust.
Vendata is The Monarch's Father.At the end of episode "Bot seeks Bot", where it appears that Vendata dies, he calls out for his wife, and believes "the plane is going down." According to The Monarch, he lost his parents in a plane crash. The only other character to fit a similar criteria would be Major Tom of the original Team Venture; he had a wife, and he died during in a test flight; however, he returned from the dead as a haunted skeleton. Vendata (without most of his armor) seems to resemble more Murphy from Robocop.
Augustus St. Cloud is a member of the Revenge Society.Either that, or he will join them. His primary motivation for being a supervillain is revenge against Billy Quizboy (who Phantom Limb might still have some axe to grind with), other Guild members don't seem to particularly like him, and he's received a surprisingly high amount of focus for a character who just recently debuted.
Dr. Henry Killinger is helping the Revenge SocietyWhich would explain his cameo at the end of the next to last episode of season five. He's doing his usual schtick of helping people achieve their goals and the RS is relatively incompetent in its goals. Frankly, we should be afraid of this development considering Phantom Limb's ideas for revenge in season four and how Killenger might help them achieve this.
Jonas Sr. himself had a traumatic childhood.The guy was never married from we know, and never seemed to stop his adventuring or other work. It's possible that his rep was just a mask for the truth: that he's just using it all to avoid facing his own trauma. Perhaps Jonas' father was was even worse than he was to Rusty.
The Revenge Society are squatting in the Monarch's childhood home.
Dean will get involved with a six year oldBecause superscience meets irony.
Jonas tried to activate the Orb.Just like his father before him, Jonas insisted upon activating it to learn its secrets. Kano, as implied, was the one who killed him, following the order given to every Venture bodyguard. Rusty is the only member of the Venture line to resist the temptation to activate it.
Jonas Jr. will be facing a major failure of his own.That will be his real test. So far, he's just been a way to rub Rusty's failure in his face. Now he's going to get some real Character Development. There are two possibilities: 1) He becomes exactly like Rusty, proving they're Not So Different, or 2) He, like every other character on this show, deals with it, and moves on with his life in the face of adversity, proving that Rusty's problems are his own doing, and that Jonas Jr. really is the better man.
The Power of Love will be a major theme in season 6.
The Action Man will die in season 6.It's pretty implied that allegedly two years have past since Past Tense.
The death of Monarch's parents caused Jonas Sr. to become a Jerkass.Neither Rusty or Monarch remember playing as kids, and so far Jonas' abusive actions started after Monarch's parents died. The shock of losing two of his friends made Jonas do what he did, partly because he couldn't move past their deaths, and partly because he thought doing so would protect Rusty from dying somehow.
Sterling Archer is Orpheus's Master.Being a massive dick playing headgames with a poor, benighted slob like Dr O would probably be a swell way to pass the time for the World's Most Dangerous Spy.
At some point we'll encounter two Alternate Future versions of Hank and Dean...only they won't be.This show loves deconstructing tropes, and there's no trope that has it coming more than Alternate Future, a lazy excuse to play with time-travel without any need for consistent writing or real effort at forward-looking continuity. The boys will encounter two badass future versions of themselves, and will get excited...until they're told its an alternate future, and there's no reason to think that they'll ever become badasses themselves...then, as soon as the boys are out of earshot, Future Hank will start laughing "Alternate future! can you believe we bought that crap!" Future Dean will then explain that the illusion is necessary to preserve the timeline, because Hank and Dean can't achieve greatness without having to fully conquer their own feelings of inadequacy, and telling them "you're destined to be badass" would destroy their motivation to do so. This would double as a Crowning Moment Of Awesome.
The Sovereign is the Thin White DukeThe real (non-Guild) David Bowie is Ziggy Stardust. And they will have a battle at some point.
St. Cloud has lung cancerBased on the fact that back in his cameos in earlier seasons, he was rarely seen without his stylish cigarette holder, but since becoming a major character, you've barely ever seen him smoking. His final victory will be to reveal to Billy and Pete that they've been fighting a terminally ill man all along, then wander off laughing, leaving them to feel terrible.
The Season 6 finale will be a massive battle on board the Gargantua space stationThe Sovereign will play a major role, and there will be references to all David Bowie's space- or alien-related songs and works. And in the end, the station will be destroyed.
Ranch Dressing really is the cure to the Goliath serumIt smelled like Ranch
The Investors are the Bigger Badbasically what it says on the tin. The Investors are the true masterminds behind the Guild and are demonic entities rather than super powered humans. It explains why Monstroso is so terrified of them. After all, in order to get a major organisation going, you need Investors.
Rusty and The Monarch are cousins
Myra has a twin sister who is Hank and Dean's mother.This would explain why Hank looks a bit like Myra.
Hank and Dean's mom is a villainess who used to fight Rusty.This is why he tricked Myra into believing that she was their mother instead; he didn't want to get in trouble for having a relationship with a villain. Rusty does seem reluctant to talk about their mother, only mentioning her when he was sure they would forget.
The reason Hank is the Unfavorite to Doc is because Hank reminds him of his mother.
Kim lied to Triana about being a preppy christian and instead was training to be a villain.She pushed Triana away to protect her, or because she knew she wouldn't approve.
The real Hank and Dean are aliveBut are being raised by their mother who is an evil villain and is raising them to be evil as well. Doc cloned the boys because she wasn't going to let Doc near them.
The next couple of seasons will have a recurring focus on the deaths of the remaining members of the original Team VentureAs pointed out above, the Action Man is due to die soon, and the others are getting on in years as well.
Despite all the build-up, the Monarch's past will not be addressed in Season 6Whenever the show seems to be building up to a major story arc or confrontation, it is either anticlimactically deflated (like the ORB plotline) or shoved into the background (like how the Revenge Society was built up to be a major threat towards the protagonists, yet only had a cameo in Season 5). Now, Season 5 has dropped the hint that the Monarch visited the Compound as a child, and the season ended with him and his wife moving back to his old house. By analogy with the previous plotlines, this will not be addressed at all, at least not for another season.
