Overall good stuff
Nothing incredible, but definitely worth a watch. I have a few complaints, mostly concerning the fact that I LOATHE half the team. Specifically Hulk, Black Panther and Janet/Wasp. Hulk for being Hulk. I've never really liked his character in any adaptation save the first Hulk movie and the Avengers movie, and this one is no exception. He's at his finest when he's just a big dumb green giant who hits things. When he has the ability to articulate thoughts more complicated than RAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAWRG!!!!! he starts going downhill fast because the writers feel the perverse need to make him a Deadpan Snarker or just as smart as Banner, or whatever else have you, and it's rarely even consistent for all that. Don't even get me started on Black Panther. God Mode Sue much? Janet for being utterly utterly utterly utterly utterly useless to mind boggling extremes. Of course it would have been better if Jeph Loeb were shot into space before being allowed to come within fifty miles of this show, because then it would still be going on but uh...what are you gonna do? The villains were interesting and reasonably complex (for the most part), and are not overly reliant on Exactly As Planned, unlike a certain other superhero show that shall remain nameless. Just too bad Surtur wont be expanded on. Overall I give the series 6/10. Maybe 7/10 on a good day. Definitely worth watching, even if Hulk, Black Panther and Wasp are there.
I never saw Panther as a God Mode Sue, seeing as he got beat up just as much as the other Avengers, especially against Ultron. He's just Crazy Prepared. And I'm guessing that the other superhero show you are referring to is The Spectacular Spider-Man and/or Young Justice, both of which have those kind of villains.

While I do admit Black Panther has Mary Sue moment, it's not as bad as you shape it up to be. I also strongly disagree with how you see Wasp and Hulk. Hulk, to me, was much better as a Genius Bruiser Deadpan Snarker than his Dumb Muscle usual self. The new Avengers Assemble cartoon illustrates this quite well. Janet also is far from useless; sure she gets some moments of being weak, but compared to her comic book self, she does get great scenes.
