Many cartoons today are pretty awful. I have been closely to losing faith as cartoons today have been pretty much gone downhill. But on that day when I went to the San Diego Comic-Con and paid a visit to the Marvel booth, I saw something intriguing, a poster advertising Marvel's latest action show: Avengers:Earth's Mightiest Heroes.
Avengers:Earth's Mightiest Heroes is the latest animated series produced by Marvel. Avengers:EMH debuted on Disney XD October 20. It is far better then the god-awful Avengers cartoon from 1999 which did not get a good press. What is very odd is that when people first heard of Avengers:EMH, everone said,"oh no, this was gonna be "too kiddy" and not for the teens and/or adults because its on Disney XD. Those who said that were terribly mistaken. Avengers:EMH is far from "kiddy". In fact, it is very similar to the Batman TAS and the 90s X-Men animated series. It has recieved positive reviews from fans and good ratings. Some say it is even the 90s X-Men of this generation.
Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes follows the adventures of Marvel's greatest heroes, Iron man, Ant-Man, Wasp, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Panther and Hawkeye as they battle the most diabolical villains. The episodes are very loyal to the comics as the Avengers start off as solos but unite in the first episode and new members are added as they progress.

There is so much to say here, but of course, I don't want to give away any spoilers. One thing I will say is that I particularly love the languid pace at which the broader, season-spanning plot arcs are slowly, almost casually moved into place, even as the audience is blitzkrieged with the superheroic action sequences of the moment. For like Justice League Unlimited, this show is as much a serial as it is a series.
So keep your eyes open as you go along!
But for me, the best thing about The Avengers is the truly seamless melding of silver and iron age aesthetics. Old-school fans will delight in all the countless references to the original Avengers comic books from the 1960s. This applies on virtually every conceivable level, from costume design to inter-character conflicts.Read more ›
Mom and More Disclosure: I was sent this DVD to review in exchange for my honest opinion.
- Hulk: "That's the problem. You're ugly."
Can't in good conscience rate this DVD five stars, because it only collects a quarter of the season. AVENGERS Vol. 2: CAPTAIN AMERICA REBORN has episodes #8-13 of Season One (there are 26 episodes slated for for this season). Picking up from the two-part "Breakout" arc (from the Volume 1 DVD), the newly formed Avengers take a gander at their posh new mansion headquarters and begin tracking the 74 escaped super-villains. Along the way, they keep running into two terrorist organizations, Hydra and A.I.M. In another ongoing arc the Enchantress continues to recruit members for her Masters of Evil team. The Avengers promptly lose a member, quickly gain a new member (and if you're down with Avengers history, this will all be very familiar). And as a nod to his Civil War persona, Tony Stark acts quite the tool in "Everything is Wonderful." This Volume 2 concludes with the rather epic two-parter "Gamma World," in which the World's Mightiest Heroes must avert the apocalypse when the Leader applies gamma ray technology to globally infect humanity.
Wa-hoo! Tons of Easter eggs if you're a Marvel fan. Tons of guest appearances and cameos from Marvel Comics' sprawling roster of heroes and villains. The guest spot of villainous bioengineer Arnim Zola is worth it alone for reviving memories of that old Super-Skrull song. ("He's endorsing RC Cola and cruising chicks with Arnim Zola.") I may prefer the art deco-ish style of DC's JLU series, but the animation here is pretty cool, opting for a more anime-influenced vibe. It breathes life into these characters and makes the thunderous superhero battles look even more dynamic.Read more ›
