YMMV / Avengers Assemble

For the cartoon:

  • Alternative Character Interpretation: Did Hyperion saved earth from that huge meteorite? Or did he send the meteorite to destroy it and be revered as a hero, as Major Man from The Powerpuff Girls?
  • Ass Pull:
    • Thanos coming out of nowhere at the end of "Widow's Run" after being absent for most of the season, with no foreshadowing and no explanation about how he came back or how he knew the Infinity Stones were here.
    • Arsenal being hijacked by Ultron at the end of "Thanos Triumphant". It happens barely a few seconds after the Avengers defeating Thanos, with no foreshadowing whatsoever, and seems to just be there so Ultron can replace Thanos as the new Big Bad. Not helped by the fact this show carefully avoids the question of how Ultron was created in this universe, so while the Avengers are familiar with him (and as such never mentioned him before), the viewers themselves have no idea where he comes from.
    • Hyperion being de-powered by blue sunlight and Widow knowing about it. This was never brought up before, and we never learn how she got that information to begin with.
  • Author's Saving Throw:
    • Falcon gets an upgrade from Stark in the season 1 finale to make his suit look more realistic and armor-like, partially solving the Narm problem mentioned below. Additionally, the focus goes from Creator's Pet Tony first to the whole team as an ensemble. Natasha has so far been present for all the episodes, and Man of Action is no longer writing episodes (their biggest critics derided their pandering and talking down to children), instead being replaced by EMH writers.
    • The fact that Hyperion was apparently the Sole Survivor of the Squadron Supreme in the first season was considered a They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character and They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot situation for many fans. This is eventually repaired in the second season, when it's revealed that the rest of the Squadron Supreme survived, too.
    • Hawkeye in general comes across better in season 2, having a number of scenes showcasing just why he's an Avenger and also demonstrating some Hidden Depths to explain his behavior.
    • The announcement that the third season will introduce Black Panther, Captain Marvel, the Vision, and Ms. Marvel. In addition to all of the above-mentioned characters being fan favorites, confirmation that they'll be appearing has helped offset some of the complaints about how static the line-up of characters on the show has been.
    • Falcon's character being changed to have more of a relation to Iron Man was criticized, due to Sam being Steve's best friend in the comics. Season 2 features him joining Captain America after falling out with Iron Man, in a possible attempt at damage control.
    • Season 3 seems to be moving away a bit from the amount of influence that the Marvel Cinematic Universe has on it, which is good considering that the influence is a bit of contested. While there is still impact on the series from the movies (a large number of the heroes appearing are slated for future film appearances and there will be a Civil War adaption), the show is giving more focus to characters unlikely to show up in said films for both heroes (Moon Knight and Ms Marvel) and villains (The Masters of Evil and Kang the Conqueror).
  • Base Breaker: Tony. Some like him, but detractors point to him being a Creator's Pet and his actor's lackluster performance as a reason to dislike him.
  • Broken Base:
    • Falcon's costumes. For the first one you have people who think it's full blown Narm due to the fact that it has bright colours, is skin tight, and isn't very armored despite being made by Tony. Others felt it was fine, giving him a slick unique design compared to the others. The second group are also quick to point out that Cap, Widow, and Hawkeye also have skin tight costumes, and note that while his colors are a bit more deluded than usual, Cap's costume is still fairly brightly colored. They also point out that Spidey's Iron Spider suit is similarly skin tight, with only the extra legs, gloves (which have blasters,) and a portion of the chest being non-spandex looking. As for his second costume the first group love it, viewing it as more realistic. Meanwhile the second group hates it, viewing it as poorly designed, clunky, and not nearly as aerodynamic as the first.
    • This isn't even getting into the fans who think all costumes should look like they do in the MCU, vs fans who wish the show would separate itself more from the MCU.
    • Season 3. Some fans are happy about more Avengers being confirmed, the Masters of Evil being introduced after being absent for two seasons and Bruce Banner finally showing up. Others are irritated by the fact Tony's and Cap's goal to expand the Avengers on a larger scale promised at the end of season 2 was dropped offscreen, the Avengers having to learn all over again how to team up, Antman quitting offscreen and the additional attempts to be closer to the movie by having Ultron be redesigned to be closer to his movie self.
    • The inclusion of The Inhumans in Season 3. On one hand this is another successful push for the Inhuman title name, especially since it would tie in with Ms Marvel appearing. On the other this seems to be another effort to make the show more similar to the MCU as it includes Lash, a recent character in the comics, who has already served as a villain in Agents Of Shield doing the same here, especially since that character hasn't been seen in other Marvel Animation productions with the Inhumans.
  • Captain Obvious Reveal: In the comic, the Thunderbolts being the Masters of Evil in disguise actually was considered one of the greatest twists in comic book history. However, the adaptation of their story arc removes most of the factors making it hard to anticipate, and add new elements making it even easier to predict, leaving you to wonder how the Avengers didn't see it coming.
  • Cliché Storm: One of the most common criticisms about this show is that it doesn't really break any new ground as far as Super-Hero cartoons go, instead going for either emulating the Marvel Cinematic Universe or using just about every single cliché in the book. The story arc in season 1, in particular, basically is a standard heroes vs Legion of Doom plot with nothing really new to it.
  • Complete Monster:
    • Red Skull is once again presented as a heartless monster. After his initial defeat, the Red Skull attacks the Avengers at their mansion. When that attack fails, Red Skull attempts to blow up the reactor at the Avengers Mansion, so that the Avengers will die and be blamed for an explosion that would kill countless civilians. Later Red Skull forms a team of super villains known as the Cabal, to counter the Avengers and assist in his plans for conquest. While fighting with the Avengers to obtain the Tesseract, the Red Skull launches two missiles at two different American cities, forcing the Avengers to choose which city they would want to save and allowing the Skull to escape with the Tesseract. After obtaining the Tesseract, Red Skull decides he doesn't need his allies anymore and attempts to murder them. Red Skull then uses the power of the Tesseract to launch attacks on several cities around the world at once and plans to burn down the old world, so a new one can take its place.
    • Nighthawk, despite being an Arc Villain, manages to be one of the most depraved characters in the series. Years ago, he formed a group of super powered beings called The Squadron Supreme, and convinced them to conquer their home world. When said world proved too resistant, Nighthawk forced an innocent man to absorb the Power Prism, join the Squad, and destroy their entire planet. In the present, The Squad set their sights on Earth, and Nighthawk uses a variety of tactics to destroy The Avengers and take over the world, from trying to kill them with stolen contingency plans made by S.H.I.E.L.D. if The Avengers ever went rogue, to attempting to use a starship to destroy highly-populated cities until the Earth surrendered, to utilizing an Infinity Stone to turn the Avengers evil and make The Squadron look like heroes. After seemingly destroying The Avengers, breaking up The Squadron, and dividing the planet between them, Nighthawk becomes a dictator and turns his section of the world into a Totalitarian Utilitarian society. When The Avengers return and foil Nighthawk's plans, he orders his squadmates to destroy the Earth, leaving out the fact that he plans to abandon them on the planet to die. Obsessively believing he was a hero, Nighthawk ignored the fact that he was far worse than the evils he claimed to be combating.
  • Continuity Lockout:
    • Some aspects of Ultimate Spider-Man and Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. make it into this show, causing some of this due to sharing a continuity. For example Spidey's inclusion can feel misplaced and pointless unless you've watched his show, and know that he has a working relationship with several of the Avengers, and an actual strong decently developed friendship with Hulk.
    • Ultron is introduced in the series without any sort of context to explain him to viewers unfamiliar with the character or Avengers: Age of Ultron; the Avengers just know who he is. Not helped by the show dodging the subject of who built him.
  • Creator's Pet:
    • Tony Stark. Unlike in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!, where there was a reason he started out the leader of the Avengers instead of Cap, there doesn't seem to be a definitive reason why he's the leader despite Cap continuously showing more affinity for the job. Too much of the series is spent on Tony angsting about his leadership skills, and when he does comes up with strategies, it usually comes at the expense of the other Avengers' collective intelligence (the more egregious examples being the finale of the two-part pilot and the season, where the Avengers cannot possibly hope to prevail without Tony's genius). Not only does Tony get the leadership mantle and the bulk of the storylines, but he also gets Steve's canon best friend (Sam Wilson) and canon nemesis (Red Skull). It doesn't help that Adrian Pasdar's performance is very unpopular with fans.
    • Captain America gets the usual The Cape treatment, yet the episode about him being old-fashioned a Fish Out of Temporal Water reaffirms that he isn't and it's the modern heroes that need to learn, not him, his usual flaws of over-idealism. He blames Iron Man for a failed plan due to the trap being sprung by a Life Model Decoy he basically handed Ultron in a fit of Genre Blindness, always comes out right no matter what when every other hero makes his mistakes, and while being an idealist is his thing, it's never shown to backfire.
  • Critical Research Failure:
    • In "The Ambassador", Captain America's chess game with Dr Doom makes it spectacularly clear the animators either knew nothing about chess or didn't care. Dr Doom is in a situation where only three pieces are left, only one of which is a king (kings cannot be removed from the game, so there have to be always two of them) and Captain America makes an illegal move with his knight.
    • Averted when Widow is thrown out of Thanos's pseudo-atmosphere and into space: she immediately shuts her mouth, her eyes, and clamps her hands on her ears to prevent the air from being sucked out of her body.
    • Vahalla being portrayed as the underworld ruled by Hela where people go when they die in "Vahalla Can Wait". In the actual mythology, the realm of the dead she rules is Helheim, and is the place where most people go when they die, while Vahalla is a Hall on Asguard where only the greatest warriors can go after their death. This is a particularly jarring example, as it's one of the few points where the original comic and actual Norse Mythology agree on.
  • Foe Yay: Black Widow with Dracula, Doctor Doom, and Impossible Man (though he's not really evil).
  • Genius Bonus: Thor says that, according to a legend, he will have to die to kill the Midgard Serpent. That legend is the Ragnarök
  • Growing the Beard: The latter half of the first season has greatly improved over the former, with some highlights including the following:
    • "Hyperion" brought the titular character as a surprisingly darker villain and powerful antagonist who actually was a challenge to the Avengers. As a whole, even those who are not fond of the show admit his episode was great.
    • "Planet Doom". Many fans felt that it was the best episode of the series to date.
    • "Bring on the Bad Guys" shook the Statu Quo a bit by having Red Skull becoming Dangerously Genre Savvy, the Cabal finally making real progress and last but not least Hyperion coming back and joining them.
    • "By the Numbers" was just one awesome instance after another of the Avengers and the Cabal one-upping each other in so many clever and violent ways. Also, while it recycled the overly recurring Aesop about Tony learning to not trust technology too much, it did it better than most other episodes.
    • Season 2 is generally considered a big improvement, thanks to having the Avengers working better together as a team, a more coherent and progressing storyline, some genuinely interesting villains (such as Nighthawk) and Black Widow showing up on more regular basis.
    • The Season 3 premier was considered by many to be a vast improvement, and one of the best episodes of the series' entire run. It helped that it had a noticeable Animation Bump and much stronger writing than most of the previous episodes.
  • Harsher in Hindsight: The second season premiere "The Arsenal" has Stephen Collins as Howard Stark. The episode aired around the time TMZ leaked audio recordings alleging that Collins is a pedophile.
  • Hilarious in Hindsight: The first episode mimics the orbital pan of all the Avengers from the movie, but with Falcon replacing Captain America. Think about that for a second.
    • In "Hulk's Day Out", Special Guest Spider-Man mentions having to learn Spanish and saying "donde esta la biblioteca". After Community made that phrase memetic, the guy responsible, Donald Glover, will get to voice a different version of Spider-Man!
    • In "Guardians and Space Knights", the Guardians of the Galaxy start out with Groot already reduced to a twig for some reason. Maybe this was after the movie?
    • Season 2 has subtle references to Big Hero 6, specifically how Young!Tony resembles Hiro Hamada and that Arsenal is essentially Baymax in the modern era before he becomes Ultron.
  • Ho Yay:
    • Steve and Tony, as usual.
    • The constant winks that Hawkeye gets from Hyperion in the latter's debut episode, Hawkeye's insistence on wanting Hyperion to join the Avengers, and Hawkeye giving a wink to Hyperion himself when the latter is distracted. Later Hawkeye receives a wink from Thor.
      • Lampshaded by Hulk.
        You like him...because he winked at you?
  • Idiot Plot:
    • Falcon's sub-plot in "One Little Thing". Having been keeping his Avenger status a secret from his mother, he gets everyone to pretend that he's a mere SHIELD liaison to them. At the same time, the tower is in a crisis with runaway Pym particles. Falcon desperately tries to pass the chaos that follows off as a training exercise. This despite the fact that the tower coming under attack has nothing to do with the fact that he's really Falcon. Then, when it falls down to him to fix the problem, he keeps on pretending. This despite the fact that him being smart enough to fix the problem has nothing to do with the fact that he's really Falcon. Then, when he does go in with the device to save the day, Falcon, for whatever reason, comes in with full costume and the truth comes out. Falcon could have gone far longer, if not the whole episode, without having to 'blow his cover', and there was no reason at all for him to keep the main plot a secret too! All in all, the subplot just comes off as extremely forced.
    • "Avengers Disassembled" is a far more serious example. To surmise: All of the problems the Avengers faced in that episode could have been avoided altogether if Tony had used that big brain a little more.
  • Inferred Holocaust: In "Depth Charge", Attuma and his army flood New York and the entire friggin' subway system. Despite this, no mention is ever made of any casualties, nor do we ever see anyone outside during the crisis. They try to pass it off in the beginning with an offhand mention that they evacuated the city, but let's face it, no one is going to fully evacuate everyone in New York City.
  • Like You Would Really Do It: Yeah, Captain America dies minutes into the first episode. No, we totally believed it...
  • Love It or Hate It: You think the show is either the best Disney/Marvel show, distinctly average, bad but not as bad as Hulk, or you just hate all three equally and want Earth's Mightiest Heroes back.
  • Magnificent Bastard:
    • Red Skull. While his goals are never exactly made clear beyond getting rid of the Avengers, he is noteworthy in that, unlike most villains, he is Dangerously Genre Savvy enough to learn from every single of his mistakes.
    • Nighthawk, as expy of Batman, has proven being a cunning and dangerous adversary to the Avengers, always two steps ahead of his enemies.
    • As of Season 2, we have Ultron, who manages to stay two steps ahead of the Avengers since he arrived. "Avengers Disassembled" is his crowning moment.
  • Moral Event Horizon:
    • Hyperion crossed it when he blew up his own planet just because his people wouldn't submit to his ideal.
      • The real truth behind this was Nighthawk forced the power prism on Dr. Spectrum, which destroyed their planet against his will.
    • If there's any doubt that he's crossed it, it's put to rest in Exodus when it's revealed that Red Skull was about to massacre hundreds or thousands of his troops and his allies for the sake of power. The rest of the Cabal themselves are horrified at this new low of Skull's.
  • Narm:
    • Red Skull calling himself The Iron Skull and saying it so proudly. It probably took him all of five seconds to think of it.
      • Iron man apears equally imaginative with, calling the Doom controlled Destroyer the Doomstroyer.
    • Black Widow saying "Hate you", and Hawkeye replying with "Hate you more!", whilst both are under the influence mind-controlling nanobots. But really, mind control shouldn't reduce their level of wit to that of 10 year olds.
    • Since the show tries to use the updated, realistic movie designs while adding elements from the comic the movies haven't redesigned yet, the contrast between the two styles can sometimes be so blatant it gets ridiculous. Best example would be Falcon, who is wearing his spandex-like colorful original suit... while every other Avenger has his movie design. To add to the ridiculous, his suit is supposed to be an armor designed by Tony Stark, even though it clearly looks like spandex. The writers apparently ended up realizing this, since they gave him a redesign in the season 1 finale.
    • The Super Adaptoid could potentially look like an intimidating villain with a good design... if it weren't for MODOK's mug being stretched across his torso. With that effect he looks like an even uglier version of the 80's Krang. Hawkeye and Black Widow even lampshade it in "Avengers Disassembled", noticing that he looks way creepier when he doesn't have MODOK's face.
    • Thanos' embarrassing performance with the Infinity Gauntlet and his defeat at the hands of Arsenal is regarded as so bad that it's often compared to Magneto being beaten by a wooden gun.
    • The sloppy editing of (giant) Thanos stepping on Captain America in "Avengers Worlds" could be seen as hilarious. It cuts to commercial before we see the impact, and when it comes back Thanos is in a normal standing position. Apparently we are to assume Thanos successfully crushed Cap, yet somehow he survives this. Captain America is not as durable as the Hulk.
    • While the name "Masters of Evil" already is cheesy of its own (something actively lampshaded by the Avengers themselves), hearing Zemo say the name with his accent during his Rousing Speech in "Under Siege" makes it sound downright hilarious.
  • Narm Charm: Red Skull's declaration as the Iron Skull pulled off by none other than Liam O'Brien.
  • Pandering to the Base: This series attempts to emulate the Marvel Cinematic Universe. While some argue that it tries too hard, it has attracted some of the movie's fans.
    • The flashbacks with costumes and characters designs from The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes! in the episode "Molecule Kid" can be considered an attempt to please fans of the said show. It didn't work- for the most part, it just ended up confusing them even more.
  • Replacement Scrappy: Falcon. While he isn't necessarily considered a bad character, pretty much everybody agrees he's a step down from the characters in Earth's Mightiest Heroes, especially his predecessors Wasp and Black Panther, who had much more interesting backstories, personalities and abilities. Not helped by how Falcon's integration is very rushed, with very little development: He is introduced briefly as Tony's protegee, comes to help the Avengers, and then get fired by Fury for insubordination only to be recruited in the Avengers as a result the very next second, without any discussion about it between the older members.
  • Rescued from the Scrappy Heap: One of season 2's most notable improvements is that it made a much better job at integrating Falcon to the team's dynamic, giving him a defined role as a Gadgeteer Genius on a smaller scale than Stark.
  • Some Anvils Need to Be Dropped: The final episode of the Squadron Supreme arc drives home the point that you cannot prevent conflict or succeed in a cause by controlling others with fear, because in the end, compassion and friendship always win out.
  • So Okay, It's Average: While the show is generally considered inferior to its predecessor, most people agree it's still the best of the three Marvel animated series done so far (the two other being Ultimate Spider-Man and Hulk And The Agents Of SMASH) note 
  • Special Effect Failure:
    • The sound design for the show has been criticized for the music being too loud for the viewers to hear character dialogue.
    • Some of the obvious Conspicuous CG, in particular MODOK's face in Head to Head when his mind takes over the Helicarrier, can be pretty jarring.
  • Strawman Has a Point: Tony during the Avengers Disassembled arc. Cap says that Tony's ego is the reason they get beaten so badly by Ultron and the Avengers that leave with him agree along with other flaws in Tony's leadership style. While they are right to a degree there is more to the situation than just his ego. He refused to finish off Ultron so he could try to save Arsenal, something Cap calls him on but is Not So Different from his desire to help Bucky. There was also Tony calling Cap on bringing Life Model Decoys along to battle Ultron which while not directly responsible for the destruction of Stark Tower did allow Ultron to fool Tony into believing he was trapped. Tony's decision to basically destroy everything he's worked toward is treated by the others as a consequence he brought on himself but the fact was that if he hadn't Ultron would have had a significantly deadlier arsenal to work with then he already was using. Tony honestly comes off looking like the better man because he doesn't shove it in Cap's face that he gave Ultron the tools to get as far as he did in the first place while Cap refuses to let Tony forget his role in letting Ultron stay active.
  • Superlative Dubbing: The German version of the series keeps all of the same voice actors who're already dubbing the MCU movies for the Avengers (save those who didn't yet have roles when Avengers Assemble came out, like Falcon), and also keeps the same tone of writing from the movies, making the German version just the slightest bit more hammy and flippant than the English version.
  • Take That, Scrappy!: The hostile behaviour of the Avengers toward Spider-Man in "Avengers Disassembled" could to be interpreted in this way for those who dislike him. Conversely, Spider-Man calling out Tony for his ego and poor leadership skills can also be seen as this.
  • They Copied It, So It Sucks:
    • For the series as a whole, some fans feel the efforts to make the show closer to the Marvel Cinematic Universe are excessive (randomly forcing quotes from the movies in dialogues, redesigning characters so they will be closer to their movie counterparts, basing the team on the movie version...), to the point the show feels more like a promotion of the movies rather than its own thing.
    • On a more episode-focused scale, "Hulked Out Heroes" has been criticized for recycling a premise (the Avengers being mutated by gamma radiations) that was done much better in EMH episode "Gamma World".
  • They Just Didn't Care: "Thunderbolts Revealed" has three blatant cases:
    • Songbird inexplicably changes power between her two identities, even though in this version the Thunderbolts uses holograms to disguise themselves rather than real suits, which shouldn't affect anything else than their voices and appearances. No attempt to explain this is made.
    • Klaw is reintroduced as a new villain with his movie design and capable of taking on all the Avengers and Thunderbolts of his own, even though he had already been introduced in Ultimate Spider-Man with his comic book design and was despicted as a c-list villain who needed to be on a team to face Spider-Man. Again, no effort is made to explain this sudden change.
    • As noted in What an Idiot below, Zemo implies the Avengers and Thunderbolts are the only superheroes in this universe, even though this show alledgedly takes place in the same universe as Ultimate Spider-Man, Guardians of the Galaxy and Hulk And The Agents Of SMASH, and had cameos or guest-star appearances from all three. And that's without even mentioning the other superheroes like Doctor Strange who don't have their own shows but still made guest-star appearances in all four series.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Character:
    • Bruce Banner is mostly absent from this show except for "Planet Doom"; this incarnation of the Hulk apparently stays transformed permanently (and unlike in Earth's Mightiest Heroes, no explanation is given why), and, since he lacks the Jekyll and Hyde Split Personality, is reduced to a Dumb Muscle Blood Knight whose most dialogues can be summed up as "Time to smash" or "Give me something to hit". Especially surprising considering this show tries to emulate the spirit of the Avengers movie. Then "Dehulked" came out.
    • Black Widow seems to be heading that way. While it is reasonable not to have every Avenger in every episode, Black Widow seems to be the one member who is frequently absent from the series to the point where some people question why she was added to the roster, other than she happened to be in the movie. Some reviewers and fans have even criticized her having a generic personality and ignoring her comic and cinematic portrayals. This is eventually repaired in the second season, though, where she has so far been present for all the episodes.
    • As well as being a Replacement Scrappy for many characters from the previous show, Falcon is also largely a wasted presence when compared to his comic or recent film portrayal, the latter of which made him an Ensemble Darkhorse in the film, while in the show, he's almost The Scrappy. He's relegated to being the Na´ve Newcomer Kid-Appeal Character, and is thus nothing like his usual character, while his inclusion on the team is rushed and poorly handled. It's somewhat strange given the series tries to model itself on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, but choose to make Falcon nothing like his canny veteran film self, even though production had already begun on the film when the show was commissioned and wouldn't have been difficult for them to get a basic idea of what he was going to be like at this point, especially given the fact that they did chose to model Ant-Man after his film counterpart, even though his film wasn't even filming at that point. Making this worse is the fact that in "Planet Doom", his alternate counterpart design matches his Ultimate look—which is what the movie version decided to go with.
    • Thanos' literal love for Death, which was his main motivation in the comic, was Adapted Out, leaving him as little more than a cliche Generic Doomsday Villain who wants to conquer the Universe out of megalomania.
  • They Wasted a Perfectly Good Plot:
    • When Dracula was introduced, all they said was how he fought with Captain America in an Enemy Mine situation. Then they never explained how Captain America, the Small Steps Hero extraordinaire, would ever put up with working with someone who drank blood and destroyed free will in his victims.
    • Attuma is introduced without a word about Namor, though Cap seems to know about Atlantis.
    • Cap's shield being broken by the Red Skull in the season 1 finale... and it is perfectly intact at the start of the next season.
    • MODOK's body switching device. Mentioned only once again, but the implications are never, ever explored.
    • When MODOK took control of The Cabal at the end of the first season, it seemed the Cabal would remain major antagonists in the second season. It's gradually and casually revealed that the Cabal disbanded off-screen, almost as an afterthought.
    • Avengers Disassembled: this episode would have been the perfect opportunity for Hulk to leave the team to form his Agents of SMASH.
  • Tough Act to Follow: The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes! was beloved by fans, so unsurprisingly this has left this show with big shoes to fill.
  • What an Idiot:
  • Win Back the Crowd: The announcement that Season 3 will be undergoing a shakeup on the creative side, as well as introducing fan favorites like Black Panther, Captain Marvel, the Vision, and Ms. Marvel has caused some positive buzz, even among some of the fans who had already written the show off.
    • The episode "Adapting to Change" has a more serious tone, better animation, and actually makes use of Bruce Banner instead of just having him stuck in Hulk mode all the time. Needless to say, fans were pleased.
  • WTH, Casting Agency?:
    • Adrian Pasdar being cast as Iron Man... again.
    • Isaac C. Singleton Jr.'s performance as Thanos wasn't well received.
  • WTH, Costuming Department?: Again, Falcon's original costume, as mentioned in "Narm".
