Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers, is a Shōnensuperheroanime series created as a collaboration between Toei Animation (makers of the venerable Sailor Moon, Pretty Cure, One Piece, and Dragon BallCash Cow Franchises), Disney, and Marvel Comics.Based off Marvel's popular Avengers franchise, the series sees Captain America, Iron Man, Spider-Man, Incredible Hulk, Thor, and The Wasp teaming up with a group of teens to track down the world's superheroes, who have been locked away in special disks by Loki.The series is the third collaboration between Marvel and the Toei Company after their Spider-ManTokusatsu series and The Tomb of DraculaMade-for-TV Movie. It is also Marvel's third anime collaboration after the above-mentioned Dracula film and the Marvel Anime project done with Madhouse. Additionally, it is the fourth Avengers Animated Adaptation after The Avengers: United They Stand, The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, and Avengers Assemble.The story begins when Tony Stark is revealing a new technology called Disks to the public. The technology is meant to make the holding and rehabilitation of supervillains safer and easier. Most of the world's most famous superheroes are present. Meanwhile, a boy from Japan named Akira and his brother go to visit their father, who has been away from home working on the technology, and a group of teenagers get lost at the event.Loki quickly crashes the party and manages to get the upper hand when he takes Pepper Potts hostage. He promptly steals the disks for himself and imprisons almost all of the heroes present, hoping to use the Disk technology to force them to work for him. However, to command the disks, one has to have a "bio code" installed in them, and an odd chain of events leads to Akira and the others receiving the bio codes instead of Loki. Now, with Spider-Man being just about the only superhero left completely free and Iron Man only able to function with Akira's help, its up to the kids to find the rest of the heroes in the world until they can be freed.
Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers provides examples of the following tropes:
Description Cut: Used in a dramatic fashion in the second episode, when Captain America defiantly states that those who "believe in justice" and "walk the path of righteousness" will stand against Loki...while cutting to Chris, who is alone and on the verge of walking away from the effort to help save the heroes.
Evil Genius: One of Loki's minions, Smart Brain, refers to himself this way.
Friend to All Children: Wasp makes a suggestion to Hulk that she thinks might make him more approachable to kids. Hulk actually is keen on the idea until Wasp herself spelled it out for him that she was just kidding.
Gratuitous English: Tony Stark as voiced by Hanawa Eiji has gratuitously spoken "ladies and gentlemen!" in the 1st episode.
Green Goblin refers to Spider-Man with a rather noticeable use of "Spidey".
Gotta Catch Them All: The plot involves the Avengers and their teen sidekicks traveling the globe to rescue the captured superheroes.
Headphones Equal Isolation: Chris has a pair of big ol' headphones around his neck to go with his skull-and-crossbones nit cap to help reinforce his aloof nature.
Hot Scoop: Rosetta Riley, of the suspiciously specifically named "Big News Channel". She's actually one of Loki's minions.
Hour of Power: The biocodes installed in Akira and the other children is incomplete. As a result, the heroes they are partnered with can only be released for five minutes and thirty-three seconds. Once their Activity Time Limit runs out, they return to their disks and cannot be released again until the children recover.
Pepper Potts turns out to be fairly important as the kids "handler" as well. Likewise Agent Coulson appears in the first episode as a SHIELD tour guide.
Among the superheroes that form the entourage of Tony's presentation are two X-Men. At least Beast note a high-profile member of the Avengers before would have a right to be there, but Cyclops?
What the Hell, Hero?: Tony Stark got called out twice in the first episode. First, why hold a party announcing to the world about his new toy??? Second, why hold a party on an island filled with imprisoned supervillains???
He got called out again by Pepper Potts in Episode 3 for saving the children first when he can swoop her on the way up to save the children.
Wolverine Publicity: The Avengers used in the show are the ones from the movie (minus Black Widow and Hawkeye). Spider-Man (who is an A-lister in his own right and very big in Japan) and the Wasp are the only non-movie Avengers, at least at the start. The trope namer even appears in Episode 16.
