Storyline

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 Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Trivia

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 »

Bad, pretty bad
30 October 1999 | by Lucky-73See all my reviews

It doesn't bother me to break with tradition, if the replacement is as good or better. But this is clearly not the case. First, it looks like most of the time they will be fighting robots with lasers as opposed to people, a transparent effort to get a Y rating. Then there's the costumes. ugh. Ugly. Hawkeye's is worst of all. Only Wonderman, Vision, and Falcon's look any good at all. Next there's the characters. My main complaints on this front are pretty much just Hawkeye and Ultron. Hawkeye is this blown up tough guy, who I guess is supposed to be the Avengers' Wolverine but is really bad at it. Ultron is an insane robot who, in the series, is given a completely blown up body with lots of stupid looking external parts. His character doesn't seem to be very intelligent at all

The overall look isn't to impressive either. Like I said, it's setting in the future is an excuse to use lasers instead of guns and robots instead of people. Mark my words, you will not see anyone die (at least permanently) in it's whole run because of it's tameness.
