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

The decision to pair Scarlet Witch and Wonder Man up as a couple was based upon the storyline then running in the Avengers comic in which Scarlet Witch (who in the comic had a long-standing relationship with Vision and who hated Wonder Man because of his stalker-esque obsession with her and his refusal to help restore Vision's mind after Vision had his mind erased, a decision that ultimately led to Vision dissolving his relationship with Wanda) resurrects Wonder Man to serve as her protector after an evil sorceress transforms the planet into a medival world under her control. During their time together, the two fall in love and become a couple. 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!
