The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes is an American animated television series by Marvel Animation in cooperation with Film Roman based on the Marvel Comics superhero team the Avengers. The show debuted on Disney XD in Fall 2010 starting with a 20 part micro-series.


The series initially features a team based on the roster for the original Avengers, composed of Iron Man, Giant-Man, Hulk, Thor, and the Wasp. The team is later joined by Captain America, Black Panther, and Hawkeye in the first season of the series as well as Ms. Marvel and Vision in the second season.

In terms of tone and style, the series is based principally on the original stories by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. However, it also tends to utilize material from all eras of the comic's run and other sources such as the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

With assistance from SHIELD, he defeats them and Director of SHIELD Nick Fury escorts Grim Reaper and the rest of the HYDRA agents to the Vault prison. Grim Reaper breaks out the leader of HYDRA, Baron Wolfgang von Strucker, from prison and the two escape in a jet. They are eventually stopped and crashed by Fury, who reimprisons them. Wicked former prince of Asgard Loki allies himself with the Frost Giant army, and then arrives at Earth, impersonating himself as the Leader and hiring the Wrecking Crew to carry out a crime, luring his noble half-brother Thor.

As per Loki's plan, he is defeated by Thor and banished to the Isle of Silence by their father Odin, but when Odin argues with Thor and commands him to guard Asgard before going into the Odinsleep. The furious Thor instead returns to Earth while Loki's servants, the Enchantress and the Executioner free him from the Isle of Silence. While on the run from General Thaddeus Ross and the military, the Hulk confronts and defeats the escaped villain Absorbing Man. The military then launch the Hulkbusters after him, and he is eventually apprehended by SHIELD agents Black Widow and Hawkeye and imprisoned in the Cube. Widow secretly takes a blood sample from the Hulk and gives it to HYDRA agents, but she is followed by Hawkeye, who discovers she is a traitor and works for HYDRA. When other SHIELD agents arrive she frames him as the traitor and shoots him; he is then arrested in the Vault. Time-travelling villain Kang the Conqueror blames WWII hero Captain America for destroying his timeline and travels to 1945, where he observes his final battle with the former HYDRA leader Red Skull, resulting in Captain America being frozen in ice and his partner Bucky Barnes dying.

The heroes then unite and form the Avengers team to capture the seventy-four villains that have escaped.

In the Living Legend arc, the Avengers move into the Avengers Mansion but the Enchantress and Executioner attack, and the Enchantress brainwashes the Hulk into fighting his own team. Hulks manages to fight off the Enchantress' control and helps the team drive the villains away, but he begins feeling self-doubt and abandons the team, fleeing to Antarctica, where Captain America still lays frozen. The Avengers discover Captain America while following the Hulk and thaw him out. As he awakens, he reaches New York completely confused that he has been in ice for so long. Meanwhile, Baron Zemo, former HYDRA leader, has scientist Arnim Zola create dough monsters, luring the Avengers apart from Captain America and Wasp away from the mansion. Zemo then attacks and almost kills Captain America, when the Black Panther arrives and saves Zemo, forcing him to retreat. Iron-Man modifies his repulsor rays to dissolve Zola's dough monsters, and Zemo is approached by Enchantress and Executioner, who offer him to join them.

Hawkeye attacks a HYDRA base and captures the Black Widow, bent on vengeance. The Avengers and Doc Samson go inside it and fend off the Leader's forces until Panther destroys the generator, colllapsing the dome.

Kang summons his army and starts a worldwide invasion. The Avengers, SHIELD and the world's armies beign fighting back, and Ant-Man arrives at the Negative Zone prison, programming the peaceful Ultron guards to know violence so they can help with the battle against Kang.

In the Ultron Imperative/A Day Unlike Any Other arc, Ant-Man decides to quit the Avengers due to thinking that his urge for peace can never be fulfilled while he is a member of the team. Ultron, deeming that humanity must be extinguished to attain ultimate peace, sends the blueprints of the Baxter Building to Red Ghost and the Super Apes so they can infiltrate it, but they are stopped by Hulk and Black Panther. Ultron takes control of the mansion and fights the Avengers, killing Thor in the process and sending Hulk away in a Quinjet. Hulk arrives and destroys Ultron, not knowing Ultron has uploaded his consciousness into another body. In his plan to destroy all of mankind, Ultron takes control of the world's military satellite networks and nuclear weapons before attacking the Helicarrier to access SHIELD arsenal of nuclear missiles.

The Avengers, joined by Thor, confront Ultron on the Helicarrier. Ant-Man tricks Ultron into thinking that he is as dangerous as humanity to the planet, allowing the Avengers to destroy him.

The creatures of the Nine Realms start coming to Earth, but Zemo captures Thor and betrays Enchantress to claim the Earth with the combined armies. While Black Panther convinces Wonder Man to stop being evil and Ant-Man arrives to help Wasp, each hero defeats their respective villain and destroy the Norn Stones, but this teleports the Avengers to the realms of which Norn Stone they destroyed. Thor finds himself in Asgard, where Loki has assumed control. Loki then reveals his master plan to Thor: he purposely failed his previous invasion on Asgard so he would be exiled and Odin would order Thor to guard Asgard, knowing that Thor would abandon Odin when he falls into the Odinsleep. He then took control of Asgard and sent Enchantress and Executioner to combat the Avengers with the Masters of Evil to distract Thor as he took command of the Nine Realms apart from Earth. Ant-Man and Wasp are saved from the Frost Giant in Jotunheim by Lady Sif and the Valkyries, Black Panther uses Vibranium to fend off Dark Elves before teleporting to Hawkeye's realm with a magic well and saving him, Hulk defeats the troll army before leaving with the Warriors Three, Captain America fights off the fake spirits of his fallen comrades and has Hela let him leave Niflheim and Iron-Man contructs an armour with Eitri and the Dwarves to combat the villain Ulik. Hulk, Wasp, Ant-Man, Hawkeye, Black Panther, Lady Sif, the Valkyries, the Light Elf Faradei and the Warriors Three confront Loki and his Frost Giant army. They are joined by Iron-Man and Captain America and fight Loki, all-powerful due to the Odinforce. He gains the upper hand on the heroes with ease until Ant-Man uproots the Tree of Life, the source of the Odinforce, causing it to return to Odin and awakening him from his Odinsleep. Odin then banishes Loki to Yggdrasil to be tortured by the Midgard Serpent until the end of time and holds a ceremony to celebrate the Avengers' victory. Thor decides to stay in Asgard to defend it and the Avengers return to Earth victorious. In his room at the mansion, Captain America is secretly shot unconscious by a Skrull, who takes his form and claims the Skrull invasion has begun.
