The Incredible Hulk teams up with Red Hulk, She-Hulk, Skaar, and Rick Jones aka A-Bomb to battle the forces of evil in front of cameras for Rick's web-based series to show the Hulk is more hero than monster.
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, Ron Rubin, 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 »

Sad that this cartoon series which could have been a great launching pad for taking the Avengers to a much bigger audience outside of comic book readers is so bad. The choice of feature characters was not too bad itself, but the way in which they were drawn, written and pretty much changed all around is a terrible step backwards for Avengers. With so much history and mega epics to draw from, the makers of this series decided it was best to go the cheap and cheesy way, and make a cartoon for little children in the hopes of maybe selling a few action figures. This series has no punch. The Avengers deserve better than this, and hopefully they will have their moment soon enough!
Avoid this series at all cost!
