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.
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.
Can the world's most powerful team of Super Heroes put aside their differences and learn to live together under one roof long enough to save the world from ultimate destruction? The answer will be revealed when the Red Skull and M.O.D.O.K. wage war on The Avengers. Written by

Just finished watching the first episode of this, and it was terrible. I know I shouldn't judge it so quickly and I will watch a few more episodes to see if it gets any better, but it will take a lot to change to make this a good show.
Firstly: the plot - extremely predictable even for a kid's show, there are Superfriend episodes with more twists and turns, and while it would make a semi-decent midseason episode, there is nothing in it that really justifies Iron Man putting the band back together.
Secondly: the dialog - which is a polite way of putting, considering it mainly consisted of one-liners shot back and forth with wild abandon (Thor just got hammered being a particularly memorable one).
Third: the team - Remember when Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes came out and carefully set up each character with a mix of personalities that often clashed causing an interesting group dynamic. Or the Avengers movie, or Ultimate Avengers where they did much the same thing.
Not here! In this they all have exactly the same personality. There's absolutely no difference between Hulk's dialog and Cap's, except the use of the word smash. Everyone just likes to make snarky comments whilst hitting someone.
Finally and perhaps most importantly: the animation - First let me say that I did like the character models, in still shots the avengers look great. Unfortunately the animation is done on the cheap. Quite a few times when someone speaks, their lips don't move. And some of the final fight scenes are replaced with "Batman:The Brave and the Bold" type action stills that don't fit in with the rest of the episode. Also the episode seems to be poorly edited, with scene changes happening choppily enough to be jarring.
I hope I'm wrong and the rest of the episodes make me change my opinion and rating, but for now this cartoon is too violent for really young kids, and too mind-numbingly dumb for anyone over six.
