CBM: Thereís been a lot of contradiction on whether or not Avengers Assemble is a continuation from Earthís Mightiest Heroes. Can you give us any more clarification?
Joe: Thatís actually one of the things we wouldnít get into specifics, other than to say that when we sat down to work on the show we were very conscious of Earthís Mightiest Heroes. As far as a direct continuation, we can't be really clear.
Steven: I think fans should know that we also worked on 'Earthís Mightiest Heroes' so it's not a bunch of guys who don't care about or donít like that show and just messed everything up, we worked on that show too. We love it too.
Further confusing matters is the second episode that briefly cuts to news snippets, and it shows J. Jonah Jameson, albeit mostly in voice, wondering what's going on with the Avengers. In Ultimate Spider-Man, Jameson is a news reporter rather than a newspaper editor. The first episode also has a cameo by Trapster, designed similarly to how he looks in the same show.
