If, for some reason, you’re interested in the show and this blog and have not seen the show, go and do that first.

“Panther’s Quest”

Okay, I admit, I wasn’t a big Black Panther fan when I first started reading Avengers and Fantastic Four as a kid. Recent interpretations of the characters have done a lot to make him more interesting, and Earth’s Mightiest Heroes does a nice job of taking different elements of the Black Panther mythos and combining them for the series.

Re: Animated • Avengers “Everything Is Wonderful”

avengers10“That… is a very big head…”

(Yeah, I probably should have put a pic of Wonder Man at the top of this entry, since the episode is basically about him, but I just love the Thor and Wasp vs. MODOC scene, and it’s my blog. So there.)

“Everything Is Wonderful”

The animated Avengers are starting to gel as a team, pairing off in some interesting combinations to give us a look at their dynamics and revealing more about the characters. Continue reading

Re: Animated • Avengers “Living Legend”

avengers9Sorry this Avengers post is a bit late: June activities have been keeping me busy, then I decided to wait and post this one on my birthday. Just be glad I didn’t decide to wait until the release of Captain America: The First Avenger in theaters…

“Living Legend”

Although he’s not technically a founding member of the team, I (like a lot of Avengers fans) think of Captain America as one of the “core” members, so this episode is kind of a big deal, and handled really well, in my humble opinion. Continue reading

“Some Assembly Required”

Now we’re into the “regular” series episodes, although this one has a fair amount of setup, since it has to establish key elements like the Avengers’ new headquarters, vehicles, gadgets, etc. as well as the team dynamic.

Although the Hulk is more of a regular ongoing character in Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, this episode is also an homage to issue #2 of the Avengers comic where the Hulk, a member of the team for all of one issue, quits (and in that instance, never comes back). Continue reading

“The Man in the Ant Hill”

This one is a relatively short Avengers Assembled, no disrespect (or pun) intended to either Dr. Hank Pym or T’Challa, both of whom are pretty cool on the show and handled well by its writers and animators. Anyhow, let’s get down to it: Continue reading
