Is that what was going on with Feedback in the final episode of Who Wants to be a Super Hero?
I thought he was going to split a seam out of his costume! Glad he won - he seemed to be the "real" thing.
Have to admit that they lost me during the episode before that one so I just checked the website to see who one & watched the last few minutes online.

lol, I think you're right! Feedback was definitely in the grip of a huge faneurysm on more than one occasion on that show. Good catch!
