Fun episode. And they didn't for the obvious joke with Flutter-Hulk; I was expecting "My secret is I'm always angry" or some variant. And really, Spike, dude, you live with magic ponies; anything with the adjective "enchanted" isn't just going to be what it appears to be.

That was loads of awesome! Yeah, the plot was kind of silly, but so what? It was just so fun.

Loved AJ with the golden lasso.

And Fluttershy: SMASH! was one of the top five all-time moments. I nearly had an aneurism from laughing so hard.

That was awesome. I loved the crazyness of it all, especially the villain and her weapons and doomsday devices (the hairspray ray of doom ) and of course Flutterhulk.

Also, Rarity got an opportunity to shine with all that stuff she created while still being very much her. "I do so love functional accessories" indeed.

Oh, and I don't think enchanted comics are too much of a stretch in the ponyverse. It figures that someone would use magic for (not so harmless) pranks. We don't know how serious the situation really would have been had the ponies failed to stop the Mane-iac. I imagined it to be more like a videogame.

I wonder whether the power pony figures will show up as blindbag figures. That would be great. I got a gift card for a toy store chain for my birthday.

With the enchanted comic, the way the spell was written made me think of Zecora. I assumed she had something to do with it, but I guess not. Still, I wouldn't be surprised if the enchanted comic book shop was ran by a Zebra.

Be cute to have Flutterhulk return in the future. We have Pinkimanie, give Fluttershy the crazy "Flutterhulk" for when she's really, really pissed off.

We'd better hope it's not Luna or Celestia that makes her mad...

"Puny goddess."

I won't lie; the same thing ran through my head, involving Chrysalis.

"We have a changeling Queen."
"We have a Flutterhulk."

For a one-off camp villain she really was a great character

Mane-iac is probably the second most excellent villain after Discord; MLP really seems to do its best work with villains who are evil for pure lulz.

The mystery of the show's popularity on 4chan is solved!
