Avengers Assemble is an anemic shadow of the series it replaced (the vastly superior Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes). AA's characters are flat and lifeless, its team dynamic is flat and lifeless, its animation is flat and lifeless, its dialog and plots... you get the idea.
The fourth episode of AA in particular highlights every ugly shortcoming of the one-off storytelling structure. Where EMH was allowed to build intelligent and satisfying season-long story arcs, AA is stuck trying to cram a stand-alone story into one episode. (This was an intentional creative choice, made by someone over at Marvel TV who seems to think that their viewing audience has, on average, the intellect and attention span of a five year old.) The result is a muddled, disjointed mess, where the audience is given by turns too much exposition (boring) and too little (confusing, and inevitably also boring when the backstory fails to be engaging).
