While I have literally grown up with comics, and as a result often prefer the more mature, groundbreaking stories, there’s something to be said for all ages fare. After all, if the animated X-Men and Spider-Man tv series hadn’t been all ages, I wouldn’t have been able to enjoy them growing up. Now, Marvel HQ is celebrating 60 years of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes, AKA the Avengers, with a new anime series – Marvel’s Future Avengers!
Here’s what you need to know about the series:
Marvel’s Future Avengers follows a group of kids learning that they’ve grown up under Hydra’s control, and how they break free and team up with the likes of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, and Wasp! The series follows Makoto and his friends as they train under Earth’s Mightiest Heroes as apprentices, dubbing themselves the “Future Avengers.” The popular series premiered in the U.S. in February 2020 on Disney+.
For those eager to check it out, it’s available both on Marvel HQ every Tuesday as well as Disney+. All 39 episodes will be available by summer 2024, though you can check out the first episode right now.
