  • From the very first episode. The reason Akira was so late that he and Hikaru missed the flight to reunite with their dad? Akira stumbled upon a lost child and helped the kid find his mother.
  • Episode 2: When Dr. Akatsuki injures his leg, Spider-Man offers to carry him in order to get him to safety. The doctor refuses, knowing it will be harder for Spider-Man to protect Akira and Hikaru. So, he willingly stays behind, in order to give them the best chance to get to safety.
    Spider-Man: Come on, I can carry you.
    Dr. Akatsuki: And fight off those maniacs' at the same time? No.
  • Episode 5: After Spider-Man saves Hikaru from a nasty fall. Hikaru laments that it was due to his lack of strength that he wasn't able to get the latest DISK and help his brother. Spider-Man comforts Hikaru by telling him: With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility.
    Spider-Man: You put yourself in danger to save someone else. I'd say that's responsibility and power. Don't sell yourself short. You can do whatever you set your mind too.
    • After the battle with Diamondback is over, Hikaru and Thor properly introducing themselves to each other.
  • Episode 6: Thor stating that with Captain America on their side. The heroes are sure to win against Loki and his followers.

    • Chris deciding to stay with heroes after all.
    • Ed, the Captain America Fan Boy stepping up to defend Hulk when Jessica accuses him of being a monster. Even as Hulk was going on a rampage and tearing up an airbase.
    Ed: Hulk isn't a monster at all. Every day he has to overcome his weaknesses and fight his own rage. Hulk is a hero, alright! There's gotta be a reason he's doing all this. So, stop talking bad about him!
    Chris: What should I do? What, do I want to become?
    Captain America: Tough questions. What do you want to become? I'll help you find out. You don't need to decide now, the answer will come.
  • In the eighth episode, we finally find out the reason why Tony Stark held a grand party just to celebrate the invention of DISKs, even though it was obviously risky. It was to show Akira and Hikaru how great their father was and for him to make up with them for the lost years he'd spent working on the DISKs.

And worries that I'm the one not getting enough sleep! He takes his biocode serious enough that he sometimes wonders if he's up to the challenge. That's not being weak, that's being smart. So, stop talking like you know him. Cause you don't know him at all Hawkeye!

    Noriko: Mutants?
    Xavier: Yes, Noriko. For that is what you are.

  • Episode 19: As he's leaving the Avengers, Chris gives Cap's DISK to Ed.
    • While he's not very tactful about it, Wolverine does his best to try and offer Noriko a bit of comfort.

    Hikaru: Because, I see how much you're hurting and I want to help, but I can't. Don't you get it, it doesn't matter? I don't care if you're a mutant or not. Your you Noriko, that's all that matters.

    Noriko: From the moment I first knew I had them (her powers), people called me a freak. Or a monster. It was like the whole world hated me all of a sudden...
