Judging from Sunday's Comic-Con panel for the fifth season of Community, it will be the comedy's most bombastic.
Reinstated showrunner Dan Harmon arrived on stage with great fanfare in a homemade Iron Man costume, which had to be removed with the help of cast members Jim Rash and Danny Pudi. Riffing on Iron Man alter ego Tony Stark's penchant for arrogant oration, Harmon launched into a speech that would have humbled the fictional billionaire playboy inventor. Here are highlights of the speech, which also addressed his absence from the show last year and his triumphant return:
What will Abed do?!
Donald Glover, who plays Abed's BFF Troy Barnes on Community, will not be returning full-time for the comedy's upcoming fifth season, Vulture reports.

Thursday's Community will wrap up the fourth season and possibly the series, depending on whether or not NBC decides to give the cult comedy one last shot. We chatted with showrunners David Guarascio and Moses Port to get the scoop on what might be our final trip to Greendale.
Here's something you've probably never heard anyone say while watching NBC's Community: Yeah, that could happen.
And so it is this week, with an episode (8/7c) by Oscar-winning screenwriter/goofball extraordinaire Jim Rash (Dean Pelton), in which Troy and Abed go too far — what else is new — in their obsession with cheesy body-switching movies.

Donald Glover and Danny Pudi are, as usual, a joy to watch, even if the message behind their madness is delivered with a heavy hand reflective of this uneven transitional season. And who could blame Rash for giving himself some of the best bits, as the Dean imagines he has pulled off his own body switch with his numero-uno obsession, the unamused Jeff Winger (Joel McHale).
