    Main Characters 

Akira Akatsuki
Voiced by: Mitsuki Saiga (JP), Veronica Taylor (EN)

The show's main character and partner of Iron Man. His father developed the DISKs, and Akira is determined to both help gather them and save his father from Loki. Though Akira is brash and impulsive, he has a keen desire to help others. His biocode allows him to D-Smash Tech-class heroes.

  • Alliterative Name: Akira Akatsuki. As per Marvel tradition.
  • All-Loving Hero: Akira cares about everyone no matter who they are and never loses faith in anyone. He's the first of the Earth heroes to communicate with Groot, and is confused as to why there is so much prejudice against mutants.
  • Determinator: Akira doesn't tend to give up, even when the odds are against him. That said, he's not usually part of the action, so he just tends to inspire it in Iron Man.
  • Did Not Get the Girl: Noriko briefly showed interest in him before falling head-over-heels for Hikaru. Akira was entirely oblivious to the whole thing.
  • Foil: To Iron Man. While Tony's a super genius and wiz with machines, Akira's an idiot when it comes to such things.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Foolish Sibling to Hikaru's Responsible Sibling.
  • The Heart: Serves as this for the rest of the kids and even to the rest of the heroes.
  • The Hero: Of the show's Five-Man Band. That said, he doesn't tend to do much leading, given he's an ally of the Avengers.
  • Hot-Blooded: In sure shounen hero fashion, Akira is definitely this.
  • Idiot Hero: Akira's not very good with his studies or technology. As you might expect, this causes some trouble when he's forced to play lab assistant to Tony.
  • Law of Chromatic Superiority: Akira is the main character, and his clothes are naturally primarily red. It also matches him with Iron Man.
  • Rollerblade Good: Uses a pair given to him as a birthday present by his father. They become a Tragic Keepsake after Doctor Akatsuki is kidnapped by Loki. They're later upgraded into the "Booster Skates" by Tony and Pepper.
  • Samaritan Syndrome: Akira can't resist helping others. It makes him nearly miss his flight in the first episode.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds:
    • Akira and Tony snap at each other a lot, but deep down they respect each other.
    • He also tends to argue with Jessica.

Hikaru Akatsuki
Voiced by: Yūichi Iguchi (JP), Steve Staley (EN)

Akira's older brother and partner of Thor. Hikaru is very much dedicated to looking after his brother, and is one of the most mature members of the group. His biocode allows him to D-smash Energy-class heroes.

  • The Ace: He's good at video games, a Teen Genius, and great at sports to name a few things.
  • Ace Pilot: Pilots the Stark Jet that the group uses to get around.
  • Always Someone Better: Hikaru is this to the rest of the group, when it comes to most aspects of everyday life, including video games. Jessica learned the hard way that not even his tunnel vision when it comes to his brother can throw him off.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Hikaru goes to great lengths to protect his younger brother. It leads to him having a huge blind-spot when it comes to Akira. When Akira's in trouble, he can't help but act... even if there's pesky things like locked doors or ninjas in the way.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Under the influence of the Red Skull and the Dimension Sphere until Thor helps snap him out of it.
  • Curtains Match the Window: Both his eyes and his hair are the same gray-brown color.
  • Foolish Sibling, Responsible Sibling: The Responsible Sibling to Akira's Foolish Sibling.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Thor. The two relate to each other the best out of all the kids, particularly when it comes to how they feel about their brothers.
  • The Lancer: Shares this role with Thor, and is a mitigating factor to Akira's recklessness. That said, he doesn't really tend to clash with his brother at all.
  • Pretty Boy: He's very handsome, and Noriko instantly falls for him upon seeing him.
  • Secret-Keeper: For Noriko, after she discovers she's a mutant. Thanks to Stark International's surveillance cameras, this lasts all of a day.
  • Sibling Yin-Yang: While Akira is brash and impulsive, Hikaru is mature and sensible.
  • Teen Genius: Hikaru managed to be moved up from high school to college.

Edward Grant
Voiced by: Yayoi Sugaya (JP), Tara Sands (EN)

A young boy with a love and near encyclopedic-knowledge of superheroes. He is Hulk's partner. After receiving his biocode, he was fearful of the situation he'd become a part of and worried that he was nothing but a hindrance to the group, but Hulk managed to convince him he was worthwhile. His biocode allows him to D-smash Power-class heroes.

  • Big Guy, Little Guy: The Little Guy to Hulk's Big Guy.
  • Bratty Half-Pint: Ed did a lot of whining while trapped on the Celebrity Five's tanker, to the point that sweet Jessica had to tell him to knock it off. Justified by the fact that he's a child in a very terrifying situation.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Ed tries to make up for being the weakest member of the team by being this, always preparing for a mission the night before and ensuring they have the proper provisions.
  • Expy: Given his small stature, comparatively frail body, and intelligence, he more or less serves the role of Bruce Banner to the Hulk.
  • Fan Boy: A huge fan of heroes. He even runs a website about them and owns tons of merchandise. His favorite is Cap, despite being partners with Hulk (though he tends to flip flop on this when introduced to or discussing a new hero).
  • Nerd Glasses: The kid most into and with the most knowledge of superheroes and villains wears glasses. Definitely fits this trope.
  • Refusal of the Call: When first asked to help out by Spider-Man, Ed was too afraid. Unfortunately, both the villains and the call knew where he lived.
  • Shorter Means Smarter: The smallest and most knowledgeable of the kids, at least when it comes to heroes and villains.
  • Shout-Out: His name is a reference to Edward Norton who played the Hulk inThe Incredible Hulk.
  • The Smart Guy: Fills this role amongst the kids.
  • The Strategist: Fills this role, using his knowledge of hero and villain abilities. For instance, he was able to come up with a plan that allowed Hulk to use Graviton's own powers against him.

Chris Taylor
Voiced by: Yusuke Kuwahata (JP), Ben Diskin (EN)

A punk kid who is Captain America's partner. While he seems like the run of the mill punk, he's actually not as bad as he portrays himself to be. Due to his overbearing parents' high expectations of him, he's a wayward youth in search of a purpose. His biocode allows him to D-smash Fight-class heroes.

  • Big Eater: He spends an entire day going to different restaurants and trying new foods. See Real Men Hate Sugar.
  • Chick Magnet: When the kids go to school in the X-Men mini-arc, the very first shot we see of Chris is him surrounded by girls.
  • Defrosting Ice King: He starts off as a bit of a cynical Jerkass at the beginning. But as the series progresses from his time with Cap and the others, we begin to see more and more of his good qualities show.
  • Desperately Looking for a Purpose in Life: A good majority of his behavior seems to stem from insecurities due to this. Doesn't help that his parents seem to force this on him. However, his time with the Avengers and Cap helps him find his purpose, by studying law and dedicating himself to helping others.
  • Foil: To Captain America. While the captain is an all American boy scout, Chris is a punk kid who can be a bit of a jerk at times.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: He tends to act like a tough punk-ass but in reality he's a good kid.
  • Real Men Hate Sugar: Subverted, he has a massive like for all things that taste sweet. It's just he doesn't show it.
  • Replacement Goldfish: For Cap, Chris deeply reminds him of his former sidekick Bucky. Unfortunately, Chris doesn't like being seen as such.
  • Shout-Out: His name is a reference to Chris Evans who played Captain America in The Avengers.
  • You Remind Me of X: Variant 2. Chris reminds Captain America of Bucky.

Jessica Shannon
Voiced by: Naomi Ozora (JP), Danielle Judovits (EN)

A heiress to a rich family and Wasp's partner. Her biocode allows her to D-smash Animal-class heroes.

  • Action Girl: Jessica can keep up with all the boys, though like them she has no superpowers of her own.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Jessica can be friendly and even fun to be around, but even Akira is careful about invoking her temper.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Jessica has a sharp sense of humor that she's not afraid to use.
  • Gamer Chick: She has been shown to be an avid gamer.


Tony Stark/Iron Man
Class: Tech
Voiced by: Eiji Hanawa (JP), Matthew Mercer (EN)

  • Chest Blaster: His iconic uni-beam which he can power up with help from Akira to completely decimate foes.
  • Gadgeteer Genius: He is a super-genius capable of building all sorts of technological devices. However after being trapped in a DISK, he unfortunately can no longer do so as freely as before since the time when he is actually free is now limited. He now has to relay instructions as a hologram to others such as Pepper and Akira in order to build such things. Their mechanical skills and knowledge are understandably lesser than his especially with Akira.
  • Red Is Heroic: Wears his iconic red armor.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He like the rest of the Avengers are trapped in DISKs and can only be free for a limited time due to the kids' limited Biocode.
  • Ship Tease: With Pepper. His concern for her when she is captured by Loki, Pepper's jealousy over his "night in Miami", and their banter throughout the series, Pepper and Tony seem to be more than friends or employer/employee.
  • Trash Talk: Weaponizes in Episode 22, during the battle with Loki after the latter hides himself in Whirlwind's tornado, claiming that he's live-streaming the battle and makes up a whole bunch of comments that insult Loki, making him come out of hiding. Akira even claims that "there's no one alive who can endure Tony's trash talking".
  • Vitriolic Best Buds / Intergenerational Friendship: With Akira. Those two snark with each other or end up getting the other one into trouble just as much as out of. But they both respect and care for each other nonetheless.

Mighty Thor
Class: Energy
Voiced by: Yasuyuki Kase (JP), Travis Willingham (EN)

  • Badass Cape: Wears a flowing red cape as per his iconic design.
  • Big Brother Instinct: Is willing to give Loki the benefit of the doubt and constantly tries to see the good in his younger brother. This extends to Hikaru who he is equally as protective of.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Loki's Cain.
  • Cool Helmet: Wears a winged Viking helmet as per his character.
  • Didn't Think This Through: His plan on how to properly catch Akira who was stuck on those skates (Especially when you consider the avoidance system Tony added) was good. However he and Hikaru forgot to factor in the DISK Time Limit.
  • Forced into Evil: When Hikaru is corrupted by the sphere, Red Skull tells Thor he's the only one who can restore him, thus forcing Thor to fight the Avengers for Hikaru's life.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Hikaru. The two relate to each other the best out of all the kids, particularly when it comes to how they feel about their brothers.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He like the rest of the Avengers are trapped in DISKs and can only be free for a limited time due to the kids' limited Biocode.
  • Shock and Awe: They don't call Thor the "God of Thunder" for nothing.

  • Captain Geographic: Captain America.
  • Iconic Item: His iconic shield.
  • Improbable Weapon User: He uses his shield for a variety of ways.
  • Intergenerational Friendship: With Chris. While they might not have started out the best of friends due to their differing personalities, the two eventually form a bond and promise to help each other through their fears and doubts.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: The most basic use of his shield.
  • My Greatest Failure: Like in the comics, it's his failure to save Bucky. It's obvious he's determined not to make the same mistake with Chris, causing a temporary rift between them. Luckily it gets patched up.
  • Not So Stoic: Episode 20 shows Cap isn't always stoic. After Zemo's taunts and his reaction to Chris almost being hurt, Chris learns that Cap has fears and worries just like him. At the end of the episode when they vow to overcome them together, Cap's happy expression fits this trope as well.
  • Primary-Color Champion: His uniform has his iconic color scheme based on the American flag.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He like the rest of the Avengers are trapped in DISKs and can only be free for a limited time due to the kids' limited Biocode.
  • Shield Bash: When using his shield as a melee weapon.
  • The Stoic: Lampshaded by the others as being the most stoic and serious of the group. The primary reason for Chris being somewhat aloof with Cap.
  • Throwing Your Shield Always Works: He can likewise throw his shield as a ranged weapon which will often come flying back to him.

Bruce Banner/Hulk
Class: Power
Voiced by: Ken'ichirou Matsuda (JP), Kyle Hebert (EN)

  • Adaptational Intelligence: While Hulk still prefers to smash his enemies. His intellect is considerably higher in this series.
  • The Big Guy: The biggest and most physically strong of the Avengers.
  • Big Guy, Little Guy: The Big Guy to Edward's Little Guy.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Done via Diablo's alchemy.
  • Breaking Old Trends: Taking the English dub into consideration, this is the first version of Hulk in a full-length Marvel animated series from 2009-present to be voiced by someone other than his usual voice actor Fred Tatasciore. This wouldn't happen again until seven years later in 2021 with Spidey and His Amazing Friends.
  • Papa Wolf: While their technically not related, Hulk is very protective of Ed.
  • Sealed Good in a Can: He like the rest of the Avengers are trapped in DISKs and can only be free for a limited time due to the kids' limited Biocode.

  • Sealed Good in a Can: She like the rest of the Avengers are trapped in DISKs and can only be free for a limited time due to the kids' limited Biocode.
  • Ship Tease: Naturally, there's a little play between her and Hank Pym.

    Other Heroes and Allies 

Peter Parker/Spider-Man
Class: Animal
Voiced by: Shinji Kawada (JP), Robbie Daymond (EN)

  • Friend to All Children: A natural trait for most incarnations of the character.
  • Hero with Bad Publicity: The symbiote two-parter shows that, just like in every other continuity, the Daily Bugle has it against him. However, it doesn't happen with the other newspapers until he begins acting violent due to the symbiote.
  • Primary-Color Champion: Wears his iconic red and blue spider suit.
  • Sole Survivor: A variant that involves no deaths. He's the only hero at the DISK launch party who doesn't get trapped in one.
  • Took a Level in Jerkass: Shows up again in episode 35 wearing a black costume. No prizes for guessing where this is going...

Pepper Potts
Voiced by: Fumie Mizusawa

  • Beleaguered Assistant: She often has to put up with Tony's antics.
  • Fiery Redhead: Downplayed. She's usually calmer than most in this trope and more level headed than Tony. Though it's obvious you do not want to piss her off, as Tony and Rhodey can attest to.
  • Ship Tease: With Tony. His concern for her when she is captured by Loki, Pepper's jealousy over his "night in Miami", and their banter throughout the series, Pepper and Tony seem to be more than friends or employer/employee.
  • Team Mom: She becomes this as the primary caretaker and chaperone of the main kids.

  • Animal Motifs: The hawk of which Hawkeye comments as to why he and Falcon are partners being that they're both based on birds of prey.

  • Kid Sidekick: He was Captain America's kid sidekick in the past.
  • My Greatest Failure: His death is considered to be Captain America's greatest failure.
  • Mythology Gag: A flashback of how Bucky died is similar to how he was killed in the comics. In the comics, it's also the moment Cap became a Human Popsicle until the present day.
  • Posthumous Character: He is revealed to have died in the past, and didn't appear as the Winter Soldier.

Shiro Yashida/Sunfire
Class: Energy
Voiced by: Tomokazu Sugita (JP), Yuri Lowenthal (EN)

Hailed as Japan's greatest superhero, he is called as a guard for the kids while they are rejuvenating following Loki's defeat.

  • Normal Fish in a Tiny Pond: He is accused to be this by Crossbones since despite being Japan's greatest superhero, he is only the greatest in his home country. The Red Skull however reprimands Crossbones stating that despite being the case, Sunfire is still a superhero nonetheless. This is stated just before Red Skull completely curb stomps Sunfire.
  • Worf Effect: He is Japan's greatest superhero. Unfortunately, he gets defeated by the Red Skull in his first appearance.

Wade Wilson/Deadpool
Class: Fight
Voiced by: Takehito Koyasu

The Merc with the Mouth who decides to join the Avengers as their leader and essentially become a main character of the anime when he obtains Iron Fist's DISK. He gets rejected though due to being too annoying.

  • Abhorrent Admirer: To Black Widow. Even to the point he proposes to her.
  • Anti-Hero: He's not exactly the most heroic character as he does things either for the highest bidder or for his own selfish reasons.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: Per his character, he constantly breaks it to talk directly to the audience.
  • Cloudcuckoolander: He's pretty much off his rocker.
  • Don't You Dare Pity Me!: Does this to Chris and Cap after he's seriously injured. He gets mad at Chris for "trying to understand him" and calls him an idiot for dragging him out of the explosion instead of leaving him behind.
  • Dual Wielding: He dual-wields two katanas as well as alternatively two guns.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: He's the only one who's completely aware that he's in an anime. Everybody else isn't and constantly wonder who exactly he is talking to.
  • The Friend Nobody Likes: While he knows his fanbase off-screen loves him, on-screen the Avengers and the kids find him annoying as hell and don't allow him to join the Avengers, but still consider him an ally and rescue him when he's seriously injured.
  • Healing Factor: Maintains his healing factor. Unfortunately, it doesn't work with weapons powered by the Dimension Sphere.
  • Heroic Comedic Sociopath: Although the last part is majorly downplayed, he still represents this trope in the show.
  • Hero with an F in Good: He's not a villain, but he's pretty selfish and doesn't seem to care if an ally dies.
  • Hostile Show Takeover: Even though the normal opening credits are kept as they are, he precedes them with a title card of "Marvel DISK Wars: Deadpool". He also adds his own commercial bumpers before and after the official ones.
  • It's All About Me: He spends the majority of his cameo basically trying to hijack the spotlight from the kids and the Avengers so that he can become the main character of the anime.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Jumps headfirst into a fight, no matter who he's fighting against.
  • More Dakka: He packs an insane amount of guns as one of his means of attack.
  • O.O.C. Is Serious Business: Deadpool maintains his comedic and joking charm throughout the whole series. Then we get to the end of episode 30 where he is seriously injured by Zemo's sword. Not only does he get angsty, he says he'd rather die than go into a DISK and gets mad when Chris doesn't leave him behind. Given his backstory, it's hard not to feel sorry for Deadpool, especially since he's not joking in this situation.
  • Trademark Favorite Food: Chimichangas.
  • Trigger-Happy: In his introductory episode, the first thing he does is shoot up the restaurant King Cobra is at. Complete with his famous line: "BANG! BANG! BAH-BAH, BANG, BANG, BANG!"

Hawkeye's partner who he entrusts to protect the kids in his stead when he becomes indisposed. While protecting Akira during the mission to stop Red Skull's plan however, he gets heavily injured.

  • Ms. Fanservice: For a kid's anime, she's showing quite a bit of cleavage. Not that it escapes Deadpool's notice.

Sam Alexander/Nova

Initially introduced as a new student to the kids' school, Nova sought out the Avengers to join their team. During an attack from the Mandarin however, he gets D-Secured by Rosetta. His DISK is fortunately retrieved by the kids and he becomes Hikaru's second hero.

Ororo Munroe/Storm
Voiced by: Yayoi Sugaya
Class: Energy

Bobby Drake/Iceman
Class: Energy

Class: Energy

  • But Now I Must Go: After Loki is defeated, she decides to accept Xavier's invitation to his school.
  • Comic-Book Movies Don't Use Codenames: The only superpowered character in the series who plays this trope straight; although she joins the X-Men eventually, she never uses her codename Surge.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: When Noriko discovers that she has mutant powers, it greatly distresses her out and she initially flat-out refuses to acknowledge that she is now a mutant.
  • Love at First Sight: She was developing a friendship with Akira at first. Then she met Hikaru.
  • Mythology Gag: The color scheme of her civilian outfit resembles that of one of her X-Men uniforms as Surge in the comics.
  • Power Incontinence: When her mutant powers first manifest, she has little to no control over them.
  • Refusal of the Call: When asked to use her mutant powers to help the trapped heroes, and asked to come to Xavier's school to hone said powers, she refuses both requests. She later changes her mind on both matters.

  • Smitten Teenage Girl: Towards Hikaru.

     Guardians of the Galaxy 

As a group:

  • Big Damn Heroes: They pull this off twice in the last 2 episodes, first saving the Helicarrier from an assault by Dormmamu's Mindless Ones, and later saving Akira from Loki's army of Mindless Ones.

  • Gentle Giant: Groot's the kindest member of the team, and the only one not to attack the group on the hellicarrier.

     Red Skull 

Johann Schmidt/Red Skull
Class: Fight
Voiced by: Motomu Kiyokawa (JP), Liam O'Brien (EN)

  • Arc Villain: He's the second Big Bad of the series following Loki's defeat.
  • Bad Boss: His underlings (save for Crossbones and possibly the Masters of Evil) mean nothing to him and are only as useful as his present goal.
  • The Dreaded: When he's encountered, the Avengers immediately urge the kids to D-Smash them right away. For this, the Red Skull accuses them that they did this only because they were afraid of him.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: He was defeated, however the villains the kids face keep coming.
  • Death by Irony: Or rather "Defeat By Irony" as Red Skull survives in a DISK. He attempted to use Thor to kill the Avengers. Guess which Avenger ends up defeating him?
  • Faux Affably Evil: Feigns great respect and courtesy to the heroes when he's first encountered.
  • Laser-Guided Karma: Like stated above, after trying to use Thor to defeat the Avengers with the false leverage of returning Hikaru to normal after goading the boy into absorbing a shard of the Dimension Sphere (which fails since Hikaru is saved by Thor), Thor is the one who lands the final blow with Mjolnir to prevent Red Skull's escape, leaving the villain knocked out on the ground to be D-Secured.
  • Legion of Doom: Forms the second one in the series which he dubs the Masters of Evil. Plus, he already had one in the form of Hydra.
  • Man of Wealth and Taste: His villainous attire has him dressed like a high-class aristocrat.
  • Sharp-Dressed Man: He's an evil bastard as always...but a sharp-dressed evil bastard.
  • Would Hurt a Child: Threatens to kill Akira when they first meet and again to goad Hikaru into shoving a shard of the Dimension Sphere into his chest, which looks painful. He possesses Hikaru and uses him as a brainwashed puppet and to force Thor to kill the Avengers or have Hikaru do so. It's also apparent he has no problem if that includes killing Akira and the others as well. To add icing to the cake, it's apparent Hikaru's body and mind can't withstand the power of the Dimension Sphere and can kill him...and the freak is happy about it.

Class: Energy

  • Arc Villain: The fourth Big Bad, and initially set up as the final villain for the series until Loki betrays him and takes that position.
  • Orcus on His Throne: For pretty much his entire arc, he stays inside the Dark Dimension and lets Loki and the Mindless Ones do the hard work for him. Justified since he first wants to saw enough despair among the population of Earth to make sure he can use his full powers there, and thus take on the Avengers. when he finally gets into the fight himself, he is immediately defeated by the superweapon the Avengers and S.H.I.E.L.D. build.
  • The Dreaded: Even more than Red Skull
  • The Man Behind the Man: To Loki in the last arc.
  • Mistreatment-Induced Betrayal: Even though it's likely that Loki was planning on betraying him from the start, Loki's words after D-Securing Dormammu suggests that this is part of the reason.
  • Wreathed in Flames: His most frequently seen form consists entirely of fire. Only when he finally decides to leave the Dark Dimension does he assume a form more in line with his appearance from the comics.

Marco Scarlotti/Whiplash

Otto Octavius/Doctor Octopus
Voiced by: Dai Matsumoto

  • Combat Tentacles: Per the comics, Doc Ock has four robotic tentacles that he uses for combat.
  • Expy: His design (minus the armor) seems specifically based on his counterpart from the Ultimate Spider-Man cartoon, particularly the hair.


  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: His final plan involves using multiple gigantic copies of his body to target several cities all over the world.
  • Arc Villain: The third Big Bad the series has to offer. Also the one with the least amount of episodes.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Gained sentience and decided to take over the world since he saw that humans were flawed.
  • Disc-One Final Boss: He had the shortest arc of either Loki or The Red Skull yet arguably got closest to killing the heroes (especially in his first appearance).
  • Face–Heel Turn: He started out as a mere lab assistant Pym created. However after an upgrade, Ultron decided to turn on his creator and humanity in general.
  • Me's a Crowd: Makes many copies of his body to fight the Avengers and take over the world.

Don Gill/Blizzard

  • An Ice Person: Though unlike Iceman, his powers come from his suit rather than being natural.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Thor uses Mjolnir to reflect Blizzard's own freeze ray back at him, freezing the villain.

Obadiah Stane/Iron Monger

     Energy-class Villains 

Esteban Corazón de Ablo/Diablo
  • Magic from Technology: He uses alchemy to brainwash the Hulk which the Celebrity Five mistake for magic. He promptly corrects them.

Franklin Hall/Graviton
  • Badass Decay: In his debut episode, he easily trashes the entire Avengers team and is only defeated by Hulk due to Ed's strategy to release Hulk at exactly the right time in order to use Graviton's own powers against him. When he appears next as part of a team of 5 supervillains guarding Loki's palace, he is defeated offscreen by the X-Men. He gets some of his badassness back once he starts working for Red Skull and is given a powerup by the Dimension Sphere, but it is never fully restored to the level he displayed in his debut episode.
  • Gravity Master: He is capable of manipulating gravity in whatever way he wants.


Erik Lensherr/Magneto
  • Enemy Mine: Helps the Avengers and X-Men against the Sentinels.

Eric Williams/Grim Reaper

Kenichiro Harada/Silver Samurai
Voiced by: Takanori Nishikawa

  • Enemy Mine: He is not aligned with Loki and his forces. Instead, he has made a truce with the Avengers to allow them to stay in Japan as repayment to Iron Man saving his sister in the past.
  • The Only One Allowed to Defeat You: actually comes to Iron Mans aid in the final battle with Loki, stating he won't let another villain defeat Iron Man.
  • Unknown Rival: To The Mandarin. Both consider themselves Iron Man's biggest adversary, but when team up in the final fight against Loki, it's clear they never met before.

Raven Darkholme/Mystique

Brock Rumlow/Crossbones

John Falsworth/Baron Blood

     Power-class Villains 

Emil Blonsky/Abomination
  • Badass Cape: For the anime adaptation, he's given a cape with his design.
  • The Brute: While not all the Masters of Evil fit into the Five-Bad Band archetypes, Abomination certainly fits into this slot. It's even more noticeable as he's one of only two Masters who don't D-Smash other villains to use as minions.
