Storyline

In New York City, there is a mass breakout of supervillains from various S.H.I.E.L.D prisons by a mysterious mastermind. Against this threat that no single hero could have withstood, Iron Man, Giant Man, the Wasp, Thor and the Hulk work together to defeat the menace. Inspired by this victory, Iron Man convinces the others to form a permanent team, The Avengers, for the cause of justice. Together, these superheroes face new challenges, members, friends and foes as they assemble for them as one. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Trivia

For Season 2 many of Avengers characters get new costumes. Iron Man got a new red and gold armor, Thor's new costume is the Olivier Coipel version that inspired the Thor movie in turn, the Skrull that impersonates Captain America gets a new uniform that is more like the ultimate version plus a new energy shield, the Hulk gets a pair of shorts that stretch with each transformation, and Black Panther gets a cape. Ironically Wasp from the comics is a huge fashionista and yet somehow one of the only characters in the show that hasn't gotten a Season 2 makeover. See more »

Quotes

[Season One Theme Song]
Bad City: Our world's about to break/Tormented and attacked/Lost from when we wake/With no way to go back/I'm standing on my own/But now I'm not alone/Avengers, assemble!/Always, we will fight as one/Until the battle's won/With evil on the run/We never come undone/Assemble, we are strong/Forever fight as one/Assemble, we are strong/Forever fight as one.

After watching this series, The movie has a lot to live up to...
16 January 2012 | by See all my reviews

So I just finished watching all the 1st season's 26 episodes of The Avengers: Earths mightiest Heroes (thank you netflix) and I've got to say, it is really good. I'm not going to go on about how I've read every comic ever made blah-blah-blah, because I haven't. I'm one of those pesky bandwagon fans that never heard of Iron Man until the movie came out, but I've loved it and every other Avenger movie ever since. And yes the main reason why I watched this series is because I'm excited about the upcoming Avengers movie. I also wanted to get caught up on the rest of the story. It wasn't long until the theme song was stuck in my head all day and I had to go back and keep watching. I've read a lot of the previous reviews and it looks like the writers have stayed pretty true to the original comics and that's not hard to believe because the story is really good, one of the best I've seen on an animated series. I can only hope that that the movie will do the same. I have faith in Joss Whedon but I try not to get too excited because I've been let down by lots super hero movies before. (cough- cough* green lantern) So I cant say whether or not a well versed Marvel fan will be satisfied with this rendition of the Avengers or not, I can defiantly say that a average popcorn eating summer movie fan like myself should enjoy it as much as I have- as long as expensive CGI and explosions aren't required.

p.s. has anybody else wondered how cool the theme song would sound performed by Metallica or something? Just throwin that out there...
