It's not great, but it's pretty good. NEXT AVENGERS: HEROES OF TOMORROW is the latest from the Marvel line of animated direct-to-video dvds, this time introducing a new and very young generation of superheroes. Sometime in the near future, the Avengers have a fateful last encounter with the invincible robot Ultron, and the Avengers fall. This gives Ultron free rein to begin his world conquest. Tony Stark survives and manages to whisk away the sons and daughter of the Avengers to the Arctic Circle. There, the offsprings while away the years in hiding, trained and mentored by an aging Stark and raised on stories of their legendary parents. And, then, one day, another Avenger appears, this event resulting in Ultron finally tracking down Iron Man and finding out about the children.
There are four kids, initially. Torunn, the daughter of Thor. Pym, son of Giant Man and the Wasp. Azari, son of the Black Panther (and X-Men's Storm?). And James, the red-headed son of Captain America and Black Widow. And, later on, Hawkeye's kid enters the picture as the leader of a fugitive band barely surviving in Ultra City. These kids have huge footsteps to follow, and, because they're kids, they flaunt unblemished confidence and don't really think that far ahead. Some good character development unfolds as these kids are soon easily humbled by Ultron and his Iron Avengers (which used to be Stark's Iron Avengers, until Ultron corrupted their programming). The vigorous Torunn, in particular, who before was unshakeable in her self-belief, sinks the furthest. How she regains her faith, not only in herself but in her father, the Thunder God, is one of my favorite moments in the film.Read more ›
There are a few surprise appearances from other Marvel characters. I was also skeptical of how Hulk was going to interact with kids but they played that off really well.
It isnt as violent as Hulk VS but there is a lot of action and the story line was very good. For those adults who are a fan of the Xmen cartoons and such, I would recommend giving this movie a shot.
Well, I was wrong! This was a pretty darned good little cartoon. Yes, it's aimed at kids, and doesn't have the mature themes present in the first two "Avengers" animated films, and yes, it has giant robot Avengers, but there's a logical reason for their existence and the idea is actually part of Marvel continuity, first used in "Universe X," I think.
The Avengers have made the ultimate sacrifice in their final fight with the indestructible robot, Ultron. But all was not lost for Tony Stark (Iron Man) has kept the children of the Avengers safe and raised them to become the teenage heroes of tomorrow. Now James Rogers (Son of Captain America and Black Widow), Torunn (Daughter of Thor), Azari (Son of the Black Panther), and Pym (Son of Wasp and Giant Man) must finish the fight their parents started. Soon the arrow-slinging son of Hawkeye join their ranks, but it will take more than five teens to destroy the machine that defeated their parents. For the young heroes to have any hope of winning they must find the missing Hulk.
Iron Man (Tony Stark) has a major role as the childrens' guardian and mentor, and an elderly Betty Ross and Bruce Banner appear. Needless to say, if old Banner is on hand, a geriatric Hulk can't be far behind...And once he appears, it's really funny. Let's just say the Hulk is even more...cantankerous than ever. One of my favorite Avengers, the Vision, is also in the movie.Read more ›

|Quick Poll about This Movie.||
Dude isn't that what reviews are for? While I have not yet seen the movie. I have seen UA 1 and Iron Man and I figured UA 2 would be bad also.
However, it seems that people who hated UA I, II and Iron Man seemed to like this movie. My vote, just wait until it comes on Scifi or Cartoon Network... Read More

I'm a bit leery on this one as well. It seems whenever there is a good thing in this genre (such as X-Men, Spider-Man, etc), the characters are de-aged or moved to the next generation.
