Default Re: Avengers Assemble! Animated Show - Part 1

I wanted to share this. Way back when the show premiered, I was against it, mainly because I really liked EMH and wished they had just continued that. The reason that Marvel gave for canceling that and making this instead was because they wanted an Avengers cartoon that was more like what we saw in the MCU movies. This never sat right with me to the point I considered it a bald-faced lie, and argued that EMH already WAS like the movies (the show started after Iron Man and Incredible Hulk had come out, so elements of those trickled into the show.) However...

I've decided once and for all to reverse my position on that. Despite small similarities like Abomination being British, or Tony having his beard from the movies, the Marvel Universe that we see on EMH really is like the classic Marvel comics at its core and not the movies, especially as they've made more and more movies later on that have done their own takes on these characters and stories that are wildly different. Now don't get me wrong, that doesn't mean I LOVE this show now. I also still wish they had picked EMH up for a 3rd season and just given it a full makeover with new costumes and such, but all the continuity from the first 52 episodes still happened. Whatever. Doesn't matter now. Point is, I no longer feel that we were lied to about why Avengers Assemble exists. I was wrong on that one.
