So let’s get one thing out of the way: it’s probably safe to say that Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil is the finest piece of television ever made in the superhero genre. With its stellar cast and consistently tight writing and direction, the show can easily go toe-to-toe with any other major serialized TV drama in this golden age of Mad Mens and Breaking Bads, elevating superherodom to an unequivocal status of high art in much the way Ronald D.

After a family tragedy, fourteen-year-old robotics prodigy, Hiro Hamada (Ryan Potter), is demoralized and loses all desire to pursue an education at one of San Fransokyo’s (No. That was not a typo.) most coveted technological institutes. Hiro accidentally activates Baymax (voiced by Scott Adsit), a white, fluffy, you-just-wanna-hug‘im-to-death robot created by Hiro’s older brother Tadashi (Daniel Henney), whose sole purpose is to relieve people of pain.
