Western Animation: The Avengers: United They Stand

The Avengers: United They Stand is an animated series from 1999 starring Marvel Comics' superhero team, The Avengers. Unfortunately, due to plans for live-action movies, Captain America, Iron Man and The Mighty Thor couldn't be used as full members (Thor only appeared in the opening credits, and Cap and Iron Man made single-episode guest appearances), leaving Ant-Man as the the leader of the Avengers. The rest of the roster included The Wasp, The Vision, Scarlet Witch, The Falcon, Hawkeye, Tigra, and Wonder Man.

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 stream at Marvel's video website.
