The super-elastic Mr. Fantastic, the force field-wielding Invisible Girl, the orange rock-covered Thing and the data-crammed robot Herbie make up a team of superheroes dedicated to thwarting would-be world-dominating villains.
After an explosion at the school, the X-Men went their seperate ways. But they must unite once again under the leadership of Wolverine to prevent an inevitable war while also dealing with present problems.
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

The Avengers roster for the cartoon is loosely based upon the roster for the 1984 Avengers spin-off series "The West Coast Avengers". Notably absent from the lineup are the traditional core members Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor, who were originally prohibited from appearing in the series due to licensing issues. Story editor Eric Lewald has commented on their absence and had said "We want this to be a team of Avengers, instead of making it 'Captain America and the Avengers' or 'Thor and the Avengers.' We prefer to have a balanced team of superheroes rather than a superstar on the team." Captain America and Iron Man each made one guest appearance (in "Comand Decision" and "Shooting Stars", respectively). Thor did not appear; plans for a story arc involving him meant for the second season were dropped when the show was canceled after one season. See more »
In the series opening, Wonder Man's name is misspelled Wonderman. 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!
