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).

In 1997 Roland Poindexter, the supervising executive in charge of animated series at Fox, approached X-Men (1992) animated series writers Robert N. Skir and Marty Isenberg to develop a proposal for an Avengers cartoon. After creating a detailed thirteen-episode story arc, the network decided a Captain America series would be more suited to its schedule. But before Fox could green-light either series, Marvel went into bankruptcy, effectively ending the development process for all its shows. It wasn't until after the publisher's financial woes were resolved in late 1998 that Poindexter revived interest in the Avengers project, this time approaching former X-Men series story editor Eric Lewald and his wife Julia Lewald to come on board as story editors for the series. In January 1999, Fox finally gave the official go-ahead and Ron Myrick was hired to oversee the show's visual development. 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.
