Athena finally makes some progress when Claudia perpetuates archaic gender stereotypes by coming up with the idea that their superhero-to-be should be a disgruntled housewife. Joan chips in that her superhero name should be "Mizz Z." Claudia is proud of her idea. Don Jr. checks up on the ladies. Melissa updates him on their progress, and he asks who came up with the concept and slogan. Melissa takes the credit, even though it was clearly none of her doing. Claudia is pissed, but she doesn't want to make her team look bad in front of Don Jr., so she sits quietly. Later, the focus group joins the ladies. Claudia pitches her idea to the group to the guys, whom Khloe characterizes "typical comic book readers," a.k.a. massive geeks. They prove that her judgment is spot-on. Overall, they spend most of the time ogling Brande and Claudia rather than giving constructive suggestions outside of "bigger belt buckle!"
Meanwhile, the guys are still struggling to find their character, even as their focus group joins them. Tom isn't impressed with Scott's leadership skills, so he takes the reins and launches into his shtick. Looks like we have a new court jester! Thank God Dice Man created that job to fill the gaping void on team Kotu. Scott spends most of the time bellyaching that Tom is stalling progress rather than reclaiming power and moving this sucker forward. He fears they're fucked. The focus group leaves, and still no character. Herschel grows increasingly agitated with Tom, even telling him to "shet up" repeatedly. Then he tells him to pitch his idea. Well, which is it? So Tom pitches an idea he's already pitched five times. Scott shuts him down. Clint comes up with an everywoman, and Jesse reminds them he needs to get the costume design to Brooklyn, or it won't be made. Someone actually has to tell Scott to make a damn decision already. Way to PM, Hamilton! Scott sits there silently. Commercials.
When we return, Athena has scheduling conflicts with their model and decides that Natalie should be the model instead. And seriously, until this moment, I didn't even know Natalie was on this show. The caption tells me she's a pro golfer, but I seriously thought she was just some sidewalk hooker they found near the Port Authority. Whoops! The ladies call the costume studio and immediately sends the guy on the other end of the line into a frenzy because they're all yapping at the same time. Joan calms him down by telling him to "touch velvet," then determines that he is gay and declares they're going to get along just fine. Joan, T-Boz and Natalie leave to sort out the costume, though Joan's still pissed that Annie didn't let her write the script.
