Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes Episode 49 was titled the New Avengers. Kang the Conqueror returns to erase the Avengers from reality. The New Avengers, a mish mash team of Spider-Man, War Machine, The Thing, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and Wolverine are the only hope the world has. Providing they can get along enough. Let us take a look at this latest effort from Marvel Animation.
Avengers Earths Mightiest Heroes Episode 49 The New Avengers Review
This review contains spoilers for Avengers Earths Mightiest Heroes Episode 49 the New Avengers.
An energy flux indicates that Kang has returned and he has turned the Arc Reactor at Stark Towers into a time machine. Where he manages to trap the Avengers. A brief flashback shows how we got here, with the Council of Kangs freely Kang to deal with the Avengers, because his timeline has become dangerous and the Avengers are only alive in his corporation.
Before they disappear into nothingness, Iron Man enacts the new Avengers protocol. New recruits being Spider-Man, War Machine, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, The Thing, and last but not least, Wolverine. The city is flooded by ninjas, dinosaurs, robots, and all kinds of a mess. Spider-Man finds out, thanks to J.A.R.V.I.S. that Kang has taken over Stark Towers and sure enough, things are changing around them.
The New Avengers go right after Kang, but he promptly hands them. Spider-Man says that the reason the Avengers have defeated Kang previously was because of there team work and they have to act right as a team. The rest of the team serves as a distraction, as Spider-Man disables Kang's technology, using his spider sense. The Avengers return and Kang is promptly defeated.
As Luke Cage sends Iron Man a bill because it is heroes for hire and not heroes for charity, Spider-Man is given an Avengers ID card as a reserve member.
Kind of rushed in places. We had twenty two minutes for Kang to enact his plan, to get a team together, to fight Kang, to defeat Kang, and to bring the Avengers back. That can be a tricky act. On our team we have Spider-Man, the Thing, Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and War Machine, all who have been well established. And Wolverine, who only was shown in a brief flashback in World War II, but really needs no introduction.
Despite the fact this episode seemed rushed, it was kind of enjoyable. Thing staying home to watch the game and asking War Machine if he could get the scores of the game. Luke Cage saying that they are heroes for hire and later sending Stark the bill. Spider-Man calling Wolverine his trusty side kick, much to Wolverine's annoyance. Wolverine just utterly tearing into the dinosaurs off screen. And Spider-Man saying how the British Computer in his head(J.A.R.V.I.S) told him about Kang.
Oh and fast ball special.
Defeating Kang, it was kind of smart, and Spider-Man using his brain, something that I think can get lost a lot of times sometimes. Spider-Man's little quip at the end about if he gets benefits, a good idea. And I laughed when Luke Cage was true to his word.
Kang was abruptly brought back and abruptly finished, that is my main gripe about this episode. The Council of Kangs were not established as far as this show went. But hey, there was enough quality about this episode despite it being rushed. Another one that could have done well spread out over a couple of episodes but this one and done stuff is the order of the day because children have attention spans of mud, as far as those behind Marvel Animation think.
Final Thoughts and Rating
7.5/10, if it was not so rushed, I would have enjoyed this one. Avengers Earth's Mightiest Heroes Episode 49 the New Avengers will be watched on Disney XD legally sometimes soon. Otherwise, there are ways.
