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 »
This really bad series insults the classic comics at every turn. Everything that was great about the comics is twisted and ripped apart here. The stories are bad, but the characters are even worse, most of all Hawkeye. If anyone from the show reads this I suggest you do the following. 1) Bring back Captain America, Iron Man and Thor on a permanent basis, no cheap guest appearances. 2)Get rid of Hawkeye. In the comics he's cool, but on this show, you hope he gets shot so he'll shut up. 3) Get rid of that stupid armor or whatever it is. It's just stupid and makes most of the characters look that way. Either do all that or see the show cancelled. Your choice.
