Avengers With Bow And Arrow

The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes is an excellent animated comic book adaptation of the hit Marvel comic of the same name. The movie takes a lot of cues from the source material and builds upon it. Not only does the show follow through faithfully with the events of the comics, but it does a fantastic job of developing new characters and setting up future storylines. It makes for a fun and exciting watch. Here are my picks for the best sequences.

The very first full-length episode introduces us to Dr Doom, the eccentric villain who serves as the leader of the Nazi army. As the episode opens, Doom is hosting a party for his workers, telling everyone that he has “just made the most important discovery of our time”. What he doesn’t tell you is that he has placed a death mask on the head of an unsuspecting man. The victim in question is Anton Vengeful, who is presumed dead after being brainwashed by the Nazi regime.

Another major player in the comic book world is Spiderman (Andrew Garfield), who is presumed dead following a battle with the evil villain, Electrostatic. With the help of an unknown female spider (Sigourney Weaver), Spiderman sets out to find out who killed Anton Vengeful. He soon finds out that he was framed by Dr. Curt Connor, a member of the secretly conducted unethical experiment known as the Cross Counter Program. Connor wants to clone the evil supervillain so he can kill him in his place. But Spiderman gets captured by Connor and his own followers, and he is returned to the place where he was born…

Another major event ties into the main story of the show. The lab B experimentation has gone awry, and a rogue lab assistant attempts to kill one of the test subjects. The situation is quickly averted when the assistant is shot in the leg with an arrow. The man behind the crime is revealed to be Dr. Noah Ward, an ally of Peter Parker. Ward learns that the Cross Counter Program is also what caused Electrostatic to turn on his fellow Avengers, and he orders his army of robots to attack New York City.

The first episode ends with a shocking cliffhanger. In the next episode we see Ward’s forces encircling Manhattan. An angry Peter Parker suddenly appears on the scene, holding off the robots with his gun. He then engages Ward in a gunfight, and while he is overwhelmed with shock and pain from being shot earlier, he manages to shoot Peter Parker. This shock and pain motivates a large group of Avengers to join up with Peter, and they overwhelm Ward’s forces. However, the group is saved when a hovercraft hits the ground and launches several helicopters which drop down to Earth to help the New York City residents.

It would appear that the Avengers with Bow and Arrow series is part of a bigger plan by Marvel to reestablish their comic book universe. The first arc of the second season focused on the villains associated with the Spiderman Ultimate comic book series, and introduced a few new favorites like Electro and The Vulture. While not a huge hit, there was enough content in this installment to give comic book viewers something to look forward to in the future. It is possible that the third season will introduce another antagonist or two to fight against the Avengers, but until then we will just have to wait and see who gets the shaft.

One interesting thing about the Avengers with Bow and Arrow comic book team is that it seems to exist almost entirely in digital media. There is not a real supporting cast of characters, and the story is only told through the various panels in the comic book. This allows the show to tell a more mature story, as the violence is shown in the comic books as being real and the ramifications felt in the show are shown through actual actions. The writers of the show are clearly skilled at creating drama, as well as creating a strong hero concept that is very appealing to a lot of viewers.

It is important to remember that the Avengers with Bow and Arrow have always been part of the Marvel Universe, and are not part of the X-Men or any other comic book series. There have been a few spinoffs before, but nothing that has stuck around for very long. With the success of the show, hopefully other Marvel series will pick up where this one left off. The Avengers has proven to be one of the best comic book teams around, and I can’t imagine there will be any disappointment amongst their fans. It is one of those shows that has a special place in the heart of almost every fan. If you love the Avengers and the X-Men, then you’re going to love watching this cartoon series.
