''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.
