This series tells the stories of Marvel Comics greatest general membership superhero teams (as opposed to a family organization like the Fantastic Four or a minority group organization like the X-Men). Led by Hank Pym as Ant-Man and Janet van Dyne as the Wasp, they fight evil around the world and beyond against threats like Ultron. Written by

Tentative plans for additional episodes featured: Hawkeye's return to the carnival where he grew up; an exploration of how Scarlet Witch discovered her powers; guest appearances by the X-Men, which would have utilized the Toronto-based cast from the series since Tony Daniels, Lenore Zann, and Rod Wilson had already worked on X-Men (1992); Dr. Robert Bruce Banner (a.k.a. The Incredible Hulk) appearing to help the team when Henry Pym/Ant Man fell ill to gamma radiation exposure during a fight with the Egg-Head; and a two-part episode featuring Thor and his brother Loki (there was even a Thor toy made for the show's line of action figures). However, all plans were scrapped when the show did not return for a second season. See more »
In the series opening, Wonder Man's name is misspelled Wonderman. See more »
It doesn't bother me to break with tradition, if the replacement is as good or better. But this is clearly not the case. First, it looks like most of the time they will be fighting robots with lasers as opposed to people, a transparent effort to get a Y rating. Then there's the costumes. ugh. Ugly. Hawkeye's is worst of all. Only Wonderman, Vision, and Falcon's look any good at all. Next there's the characters. My main complaints on this front are pretty much just Hawkeye and Ultron. Hawkeye is this blown up tough guy, who I guess is supposed to be the Avengers' Wolverine but is really bad at it. Ultron is an insane robot who, in the series, is given a completely blown up body with lots of stupid looking external parts. His character doesn't seem to be very intelligent at all
The overall look isn't to impressive either. Like I said, it's setting in the future is an excuse to use lasers instead of guns and robots instead of people. Mark my words, you will not see anyone die (at least permanently) in it's whole run because of it's tameness.
