C-A-D: Iron Man TAS - 102

Iron Man The Animated Series
Episode 102
Rejoice! I am Ultimo, Thy Deliverer!

Just when you thought Iron Man TAS couldn't get any worse, the producers give us this crap as the second episode of the series. Not quite as bad as the first one, but that's not saying much.

The Mandarin and Modok find and bring to life a gigantic alien Robot named Ultimo. The Madarin uses it to try and destroy one of Stark's factories, but is stopped by Iron Man and the rest of the Force Works. 

Now, I don't know if it's a case of really bad writing here, or just terrible source material. I did some reading up on Ultimo on good ole wikipedia and I discovered that this origin episode for Ultimo is pretty faithful to his original origin in the comics. Unfortunately, It's just like the first episode of Iron Man. The Mandarin has a scheme, he executes it and is thwarted by Iron Man. This ones another dud and I don't think it's going to get any better, at least not for 11 more episodes.
