The Avengers: United They Stand

Show Summary

The Avengers: United They Stand (also called The Avengers) was an animated series based on the popular Marvel comic book series. The Avengers: United They Stand aired on FOX (Fox Kids), in 1999 on the Saturday Morning Cartoon Block. The Avengers are the world's foremost superheroes, protecting the world from incredible globe-threatening villains. Whether they're robotic like Ultron, time-traveling like Kang the Conqueror, extra-terrestrials like The Zodiac, or just super-powered like any other villain, the Avengers are more than a match for any foe. The Avengers only lasted one season with thirteen episodes. The series was both a critical and commercial failure. A second season was planned, but never occurred. Some say the show's lack of success was because the three characters, Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor (also known as the "Big Three" Avengers) did not star in it.

  • Not worth assembling

    I've recently developed a love for The Avengers. This show was from the weaker end of the movies/tv shows dedicated to that group of Marvel's superheroes.

    While the animation is passable (although sometimes too simple, repetitive, and using "real" images in explosions which really makes the scene look more goofy), the story was the biggest problem: there were plot holes the size of Giant-Man, most of the interaction and the way the story was carried deserved rolled eyes, and while all the superhero elements were there, the emotional level of the series was rather flat, due to flimsy sequences and horrible lines.

    Bearable, but not whole-heartedly recommended.moreless
  • Could Have been a good show. There, were too many problems that the show had and they should have contnued it, give them a chance to do a better show, that's atleast what I think atleast, could have been a good show. Could have been...moreless

    Like I said, this could have been a good show if they had the three main members in it so people reconsided it, and second, It was too powerangy and among other problems. Let's hope that the up and comming Ultimate Avengers movie gives some grace back to the name Avengers.
  • Marvel's WORST cartoon. Period.

    You'd think that with as large a fanbase, or even

    as big a name as "Marvel" is, you'd expect them

    to dish out top-quality shows eh?

    Sadly, this is not the case in regards to this show.

    The Avengers is a horrible, horrible, HORRBILE


    It lacks the core 3 Avengers, Iron Man, Captain

    America, and Thor. These 3 MAKE the Avengers. Only

    making them cameos is absurd, as is having Giant

    Man/Ant Man as the leader.

    Being a kid's friendly show, Ultron is not the

    same megalomaniacal machine you remember from the

    comics. He's so non-intimidating.

    The voice-acting is horrible, as is the Scarlet

    Witch's ever repetitive and annoying, "Winds of

    Destiny, Change!" She never said that in the

    comics, so I don't know why for the like of me,

    they'd make her say that now.

    Wonder Man was such a useless character to have

    put in. He's gone after the 1st episode, and

    does not reappear until near the end!!


    The Vision sounds like a Star Trek nerd than an

    actual Android.

    The Wasp is very out of character.

    Why would anyone put The Falcon in this I have

    no idea.

    And worst of all, some Avengers have this animated

    transformation sequence with a special theme

    playing as they armor-up.

    So in other words, meet the Marvel Power Rangers.

    Like I said, very bad show. I personally want

    whoever made this fired.moreless
  • Very bad show. VERY bad.

    A few years ago, Marvel tried to re-launch their animated series for the new millennium. To do this, they created three new series'. These were Spider-Man Unlimited, Avengers United and X-Men: Evolution. X-Men Evolution was the only one of the new series' that was actually good.

    Avengers United focuses on the Avengers and their intrepid adventures battling their nemeses. Sadly to do that, they rely on armour that they apply Power Rangers style whenever Ant-Man (who is leader of the Avengers) shouts “Avengers Assemble!” There’s plenty wrong with this series aside from the lame Power Rangers armour. Instead of using some of the A-list Avengers such as Captain America, Thor and Iron Man to lead this team, they rely on Ant-Man who is a B-lister at best. He isn’t the leader in the comic books so why did they place him as leader here? Simple. The writers are incompetent and were no doubt fired for creating this garbage. Don’t get me started on the what the writer’s did to Wonder Man...

    If you crave some animated team action, look no further than Justice League Unlimited which is without a doubt one of the greatest animated series’ ever made.moreless
  • The Avengers, earth's mightiest heroes, battle villains.

    There's a lot of potential in an Avengers TV show. After all, they are a comic team that's been around for decades and have had numerous popular heroes enter their ranks, not to mention regularly facing down a slew of varied and interesting villains. Unfortunately, this show did not do a lot with its massive potential, coming up with a roster without a single recognizable name in it among other things. The talent was mostly the same as on the then-recent and smash hit X-Men cartoon, but I don't think this was a great idea going in since the Avengers have a much, much different tone than the X-Men, who are hated and feared by many of the same people they try to help. Trying to do a team that is loved and respected resulted in a show that was pretty lifeless and produced a cast of heroes that was much flatter than the members of X-Men. And frankly, they could've done a much better job picking which Avengers would be the show's main group. Vision was the only character I liked out of the whole team. I'm not surprised that it disappeared as fast as it did.moreless
