''The Avengers: United They Stand'' is an {{animated series}} from [[TheNineties 1999]] starring Creator/MarvelComics' superhero team, ComicBook/TheAvengers. Unfortunately, due to plans for live-action movies, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, ComicBook/IronMan and ComicBook/TheMightyThor couldn't be used as full members ([[DemotedToExtra Thor only appeared in the opening credits, and Cap and Iron Man made single-episode guest appearances]]), leaving ComicBook/AntMan as the the leader of the Avengers. The rest of the roster included ComicBook/TheWasp, ComicBook/TheVision, ComicBook/ScarletWitch, ComicBook/TheFalcon, ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}, Tigra, and ComicBook/WonderMan.

Marvel briefly published a comic-book tie-in. Written by Ty Templeton, he managed to tell some accessible, fun, classic Avengers stories. He even managed to perfectly update ''Even an Android Can Cry'' ''and'' work in a guest appearance by Devil Dinosaur and Moon Boy.

This show ran for only 13 episodes, all of which have become available to [[http://marvel.com/videos/browse/movietv/151/the_avengers_united_they_stand stream]] at Marvel's video website.

!!This Marvel animation provides examples of:

* ActionGirl
* AFatherToHisMen: Ant-Man
* AIIsACrapshoot: Not just Ultron, but some equipment of his that somehow fuses with plant matter ''and comes alive'' in "Remnants".
* AlwaysSomeoneBetter: Ant-Man feels this towards Captain America in his guest episode.
* {{Animesque}}: The use of PoweredArmor and lengthy {{Transformation Sequence}}s especially.
* AttackPatternAlpha: Used all over the place. There's even a "Containment maneuver #12".
* BadassNormal: Hawkeye
* BattleCouple: Ant-Man & Wasp, Wonder Man & Scarlet Witch
* BigRedDevil: Invoked with Taurus, who's actually a minotaur but is also ''really'' red.
* CatsHateWater: More specifically, Tigra does.
* CoversAlwaysLie: [[spoiler:Wonder Man and the Vision in the same lineup? HAH.]]
* DaChief: Mr. Sikorski
* DeadStarWalking: [[spoiler: Wonder Man]]
* DemotedToExtra: CaptainAmerica, IronMan and {{Thor}}.
* FantasticRacism: The witches of New Salem are pretty much known for being persecuted in history, yet they call out Scarlet Witch for being a ''mutant''.
* FollowTheLeader: The PoweredArmor sequence apparently rides off the success of the IronMan animated series that came before this.
* HappilyMarried: Ant-Man & Wasp
* HiddenElfVillage: New Salem, Scarlet Witch's old training grounds.
* {{Invocation}}: The Scarlet Witch: "Winds of Destiny, ''Change''!"
* LethalJokeCharacter: Dr Egghead has just enough knowledge of manipulating Pym particles to ''nearly kill Ant-Man.''
* ManBehindTheMan: Swordsman, who convinced his old pal Hawkeye to join his group, was acting under orders from Taurus.
* MultipleHeadCase: Gemini of the Zodiac villains. ''Male and female heads.''
* NoEnding: The series ends with [[spoiler:the Zodiacs getting what they were after, and able to turn the Zodiac Key, while Wonder Man's powers have been rendered unstable due ti the Zodiacs' DoomsdayDevice, and Ant-Man votes to drop him from the team.]] ''That's it.''
* OpponentSwitch: The Avengers do this to defeat the Masters of Evil.
* OrganicTechnology: In "Remnants", some technology Ultron left lying around somehow turns into this when fused with the local flora.
* ThePlan: See WhatTheHellHero. When asked, what if it didn't work, Ant-Man replied "You know, that never even crossed my mind."
* RedHerring: The MonsterOfTheWeek in "Remnants" looks to all the world like ManThing, but is actually plant matter fused with Ultron's technology.
* RobotBuddy: Vision
* SacrificialLamb: Wonder Man, who's very quickly put into a coma while setting up the Vision's origin.
* SayMyName: "HENRY!" said by Wasp whenever she or Ant-Man are in peril.
* ShoutOut: Ant-Man in his microship maneuvers between ''the keys on a keyboard'', looking for all the world like [[Film/StarWars the trench run.]]
* StockFootage: The transformation sequences. See below.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Hawkeye's old circus costume from "Comes a Swordsman". And unnecessarily so.
** Nearly the whole team[[note]]Vision is inexplicably spared, while Tigra is already in her element[[/note]] gets jungle-themed outfits in "Remnants" that wind up more like this for some reason.
* TeamMom: Wasp
* TransformationSequence: Ant-Man, Wasp, Hawkeye and Falcon's snap-on armour.
* WesternZodiac: A whole group of themed villains from outer space, with Taurus the acting leader.
* WhatTheHellHero: Several. Hawkeye in the first episode for leaving his post and the president getting hurt. Later Ant Man for seemingly giving in to the demands of the MonsterOfTheWeek who took Wasp hostage. [[UnspokenPlanGuarantee Though in that case it was a plan which worked, so everybody was cool with it.]]
* WindsOfDestinyChange: The Scarlet Witch. TropeNamer.
* YouDontLookLikeYou: Ultron can swap out every part of his body for whichever reason, giving him several different appearances. He's even missing his feelers in "Remnants".
* YouKilledMyFather: This show's Baron Zemo has been under the impression that Captain America killed his father ie. the previous Baron Zemo. In actual fact, [[KarmicDeath it was his own shots reflected off the vibranium shield that did it.]]
