I am a grown woman without children. I am a huge fan of Marvel & DC comics and most of the cartoons and movies derived from said comics. This review is mostly intended for other adult fans.

Disney XD is using this show as a replacement for Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes. As a fan of the first series, I couldn't wait to try the new series.

I generously gave these series two stars because of the quality of the animation. The animation is crisp and clean, and it affectively uses split screens to give it an almost comic book feel. And if your kid's a fan of shows like Ben10 he or she will probably enjoy it.

That said, Mom and Dad probably won't enjoy it. The script is like bad fanfiction. The dialog is cheesy, the situations are cliche, and everything happens too quickly and conveniently. Falcon comes off as an overgrown fanboy, Iron Man as a stalker, and no one can act civilly to each other. The vast majority of the dialog is one hero insulting another. The insults aren't even witty are clever; they're comments like " get a haircut" or "your gamma breath stinks." And the heroes travel from one poorly disguised trap to the next.

I watched this season because I really enjoyed the two seasons of Earths Mightiest Avengers and hoped this wouldn't be junk. It was. No coherent storyline, poor character development and lousy writing/stories. Just pretend this didn't happen and start from the end of season two. This could all be a dream (like that season of "Dallas") .

This show is no where are as good as the original series. Its really dumbed down and mostly kids stuff here. The original show had stand alone episodes with a longer season long story arc to it. After the first episode I will not be watching it further.

The first season of "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" I felt was better than what I have seen of "Marvel's Avengers Assemble". In truth I have only seen the first two episodes. Still it reminds me of "The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" season II which I didn't like as much as the first season. Still I looked forward to a third season and instead got this version. I am not saying it is awful as I would give it one star instead of three. I was just hoping for something more.

I was a fan of The Avenger's: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. From the first episode to the last, to have a cartoon that was able to have one continuous storyline like that show accomplished without letting the viewer get lost was amazing work. So when I heard that Marvel was ditching Earth's Mightiest Heroes in favor of Avenger's Assemble, I was a little confused. Why attempt to fix something that isn't broken? However, Marvel has made some pretty decent cartoons of late (animation is one area where DC has them beat) so I gave the show a chance.

The show is pretty much an indirect sequel to The Avenger's movie. They've chosen to whittle down the cast to the core group of characters you saw in the film apart from new recruit The Falcon. I can see why they did this. One criticism you could make with Earth's Mightiest Heroes is that if you hadn't been there from day one, I could see where people could have gotten lost. Too many character's were given focus which, although done admirably, thinking like a producer who sees the ratings for a show I could see where they would think it was a good idea to narrow down the big group to the main core the average person is aware of.

The storyline so far, apart from Red Skull trying to get a group of baddies together to fight The Avenger's seems thread bare. It didn't have to be as intricately laid out as they did with Earth's Mightiest Heroes by any means where every episode had tied into the overall story. But the new show pretty much is a baddie of the week fight to the finish. Not that going this route is horrible but I am disappointed that there has not been much effort to have one story theme they could follow, similar to what Doctor Who or one of Marvel's other animated shows Ultimate Spider-Man does. Granted, the season is not over and I will be glad to eat my words if they produce a number of moments that brings everything together but as of now, it appears like a cartoon from the 80's. Wash, rinse, repeat.

Should you watch this show? Yes. While it doesn't stand up to the quality of Earth's Mightiest Heroes, it has it's own charm. As of now I won't claim that this is my favorite Marvel show. If episodes continue to be of this quality two or three seasons down the road then I will be disappointed. But as it stands, I think they can build from this. There has to be more effort in creating a story arc that will satisfy fans like myself who like long form television stories with good characters as well as having a product that will entertain new younger fans and get them loving these amazing characters. Marvel has shown they have the capability to do this so in my book, they will have my money for the full season.

It's an animated version of the movie Avengers team. I'd give it 5 stars but the absence of Wasp and Carol Danvers is a let down.

I am a big fan of comic animation and this program exceeds my expectations. It takes a slightly more adult approach to being more realistic with the casualties of battle (old GI Joe = Cobra planes are shot down = bad guys parachute out before death....lame!).

This group of heroes very much like the movie group. Somewhat the same banter between characters. Nice array of villians. Overall not quite as good as avengers worlds mightiest heros, but could stand on its own merit. Given more time show will eventually be as good as prior show.

My little guy and the boy I babysit love this show. I actually bought it by mistake, but very glad I did. The boy I babysit is 3 and he asked for something with a superhero in it. I ordered something with Batman, when he went to play it, something went wrong. When I put in my password, it was too late I ordered The Avengers. Well I told the boy, he had to watch it, and he loved it. So I had my son watch it when he was bored later in the day. He is 4. I would say it's a little over their heads when it comes to the story, but they loved the animation and the action.

Had a good blend of characters. A bit different from the comics. However if the hulk had a personality, I am assuming this would be it. Action is great!!! Graphics are great!!!
