3 Reasons Why I Can't Wait For The Avengers Cartoon On Disney XD

There are tons of great shows, both live and animated, coming this fall. One of the ones that I am looking forward to is the new Avengers cartoon that will be on Disney XD. It will feature Iron Man, Captain America, Wasp, Ant Man, Hulk and Thor. The cartoon will pull its stories primarily from the classic Stan Lee/ Jack Kirby stories and will feature a ton of villians and other super heroes. Check out the trailer for the show below:

Aside from the great looking animation, here are three reasons why I am psyched to see this cartoon.
  1. Ant Man (Hank Pym) seems to be able to combine his Ant Man powers (shrinking) and Giant Man powers (growing) in one character. This makes a lot of sense to me, since he has had both powers in the past. As far as I recall, Pym only had one of these powers working at a time back in the comics (I could be wrong though... am I?) and I never understood why. In this trailer we see him minaturized running through blades of grass and big enough to pick up a supertanker. Dope... just dope.
  2. Loki. Thats it for me. Loki is one of my all time favorite villians. He is awesome, plus his helmet is fucking great. I do not know if he has ever gored somebody with his tusk helmet in the comics, but if it hasn't then Quesada and the crew need to make that happen. He looks to be a re-occuring character on this show, and rumors that he will also be the main villian in The Avengers live action movie make me h-h-h-h-happy (Simple Jack voice).
  3. Iron Man being deignated the leader. Thats gonna piss Cap off a bit, no? Judging from all the bad blood between the two of them since the Civil War drama a few years back, and the constant struggle between them throughout the years to be the top cheese, I think this will be a big part of the show. It's interesting to me, and I can not wait to see how it plays out.
So there you go. The new show will be premiering on Disney XD sometime in late September or early October. Can not wait for this one. Tell me what you think in the comment section below.


  1. did this get past my cartoon radar. It looks terrific. I totally agree with everything you said. Being ant/giant man is the coolest power ever. Did you see the six episode Black Panther series they did last year? It was terrific as well. Looks great.

  2. I have seen bits and pieces of it... I know it was supposed to be on BET at some point, but that idea never really came to fruition. Is there any particular site where you can see all of em???
