Synopsis[edit]

Featured characters[edit]

(Numbers indicate order of appearance.)

"What about you, Scooter?"
"Oh, don't worry about me. I'll be fine. I'm gonna hide."

Scooter and Nick discuss the finer points of heroism.

Notes[edit]

  • Tork appears as a Guardian in this episode where literally yesterday he aired as a Renegade in "The Gift". Unfortunately, his next and final appearance in the series proper will confuse things even more.
  • The Guardians use a Boomer for the first time this episode, one of the Blast models that was sold as a Renegade vehicle in the toy line.
  • Among the creatures of myth summoned are a Minotaur, the Furies, a dragon, griffin, cyclops and the gorgon.

Continuity notes[edit]

  • Gadgets and Powers:
    • Scooter uses a hologram to disguise a giant mirror as himself, tricking the gorgon into reflecting its petrifying gaze. Where he got the giant mirror, though, we'll never know.

Continuity errors[edit]

  • Scooter is shown using blasters against the gorgon.

Animation and technical errors[edit]

  • Nick is wearing the blue parka when first seen instead of the proper brown.
  • Lois appears in the brown parka instead of blue when they first spy Atlantis.
  • A.J. is colored Caucasian when she arrives in the Boomer.
  • Crasher is missing her left red rectangle when talking about crushing the weasel Janus.

Real-world references[edit]

  • Janus is the two-faced god of Roman myth. Get it?
