    Tony: Like some glorified costume rental service?
    • Spider-Man and the Green Goblin's bantering back and forth throughout the episode.
    Spider-Man: (uses his webs to catch a ride on the Goblin's glider) Whoa! This is a way more efficient way of getting around town. Hey, if this whole Supervillain thing doesn't work out. Maybe you could consider getting into the ride sharing business.
    Green Goblin: Not interested! The clientele seems to be rather clingy.
  • Episode 13, Stan Lee makes a cameo as the rather unfortunate hotdog vendor that the Green Goblin decides to attack. Fortunately, Spidey manages to rescue the man.

  • Episode 19, the introduction of Loki to the Future Avengers. Which involves demonstrating the power of the magical shackles meant to keep the God of Mischief in line. By causing him to fall to the ground like a sack of potatoes whenever Thor wishes.
    Loki: (awkwardly as he's still lying on the ground) Uh, excuse me. Brother, would you please release me now?
    Iron Man: Whhhy? You look so comfy down there?
    • This becomes a bit of a Running Gag for the rest of the episode.
    • Loki pulls a prank on the Future Avengers, getting some amusement out of deceiving them with his shapeshifting magic. He's far less amused, when he's suddenly confronted by "Thor" for his disrespect.
    "Thor": Hahaha! So, you don't like a taste of your own medicine, do you?

    • Makoto's first encounter with the sorceress Morgan's monsters, which mostly involves lots of screaming and running for his life rather comically.
    • Makoto, upon pulling the Ebony Blade from its pedestal. Acts like any child would and starts swinging it around like a toy sword. With Tony at one point even calling him, "Little Lord Fauntleroy".
