Ubisoft is developing a video game based on the movie (for Xbox 360's Kinect peripheral and the Wii U), but it's called The Avengers: Battle for Earth.

"Good news, I still have armor, even though it's just the prototype. Bad news...I have no clue how it works."

According to "Powerless", Iron Man said that.

Iron Double-Fisted-Particle-Physics-Fucking-Martini Man, under a "spell" by the Enchantress, said that.

The spell is supposed to strip a person's "powers", and for Tony all it did was give him plot-convient amnesia?

Four credited writers, and not one actually gave a shit about the script.

Fucking genius.

It also downgraded his armour to the bulky gunmetal mark one he built in the Desert/korea/vietnam during his ever shifting origin.

Loeb cleaned house.

All momentum of classy is gone.

Got to start form a stationary point again.

While kind of stupid, I could have put up with that, given the visual nature of Cap and Thor's downgrade...

...which itself highlights the stupidity of Tony's "amnesia", as his "powers" aren't his tech skills, it's his mix of genius and crazy passion. Any nerd in Marvel can build an Iron Man suit, but only Tony is egotistical (and quietly self-loathing) enough to wear it himself.

The Demon in a Bottle arc works because it deals with what makes Tony able to be Iron Man; his ego and self-image.

Man of Action needs psychiatric help, because I suspect part of their frontal cortex is "just...static."

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

I liked it in the Ultimates recently when some Presidential aid in the White House said that Tony Stark had a tactical WMD drinking problem.

This is a children's cartoon.

Booze might exist, but Alcoholism, like nipples and Nazis probably doesn't.

I've seen a few bare chested blokes on EMH, including the Hulk, and none of them have nipples.

TV Guide did an actual interview with Loeb and Quesada in which does seem support the cancellation, however.

Jeph Loeb: The Avengers movie has been the ambassador to the world for the Marvel Universe so we want a show that has the feel and the tone and the incredible adventures like that movie. So the next project that we're working on — and this is down in our lab, top secret, with the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents protecting us at all costs — is Marvel's Avengers Assemble, which will be a brand new and really extraordinary looking animated series dealing with the Avengers in that same world.
http://www.tvguide.com/News/Exclusiv...s-1048788.aspx
Disney Channels Worldwide President Gary Marsh has now also confirmed Avengers Assemble.

He also confirmed that a new Iron Man animated series is in the works, so it sounds like Iron Man: Armored Adventures is done.

^Actually he just says "we're talking about... an Iron Man series." "Talking about" just means they're considering it, discussing the possibilities. It's a far cry from "Yes, we're definitely making this."

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

And there's the Japanese Iron Man (Wolverine too) which they dub into English that's being made which has no relation to EMH or Ultimate Spider-Man yet doesn't seem to dilute the brand even though it really should, since the 12 seconds of it that I could tolerate had Stark hitting on a 17 year (Computer Engineer collogue) old girl.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

I'm about an hour away from watching the final four episodes of season 2.

Any one in Auckland that has a pizza they are willing to share is more than welcome to come see them too.

(edit.)

What?

Shit?

What?

They changed/updated the credits.

It now includes Spider-man, War Machine, Powerman and Iron Fist, Wolverine and the Thing

It's almost like the producers don't know that the series is cancelled.

(or I stopped watching the credits weeks ago?)

edit.

Never mind.

All is explained.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

Just watched The Deadliest Man Alive.

I know the Red Hulk is supposed to always be Ross, but here it's TOTAL BULLSHIT. There's no way that makes sense in Avengers:EMH.

"Nightmare in Red" went out of it's way to sell Red Hulk as someone else. He doesn't have a moustache, he had a wierd ass accent before the transformation, plus the Red Hulk was being controlled by a third party, which would make ZERO sense, even as a ruse given that Ross would have simply KILLED the Hulk since he had the opportunity in that ep.

Hell, the shadowy figure they injected looks NOTHING like Ross as shown in prison garb in the new ep. Oh, and he's missing his heat powers.

Great continuity, Men of Action.

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

In the comics they faked Ross' death.

Misdirection is part of the package.

He was also being controlled and leveraged by the Leader which is why he needed a secret alliance with Banner to stop himself.

There were a lot of headless LMDs in this story.

Maybe they had plans for Big Red next season?

but he's not going to be in the next animated series if the Rulk is not going to make it out the other side of Avengers VS. X-Men.

I hate it when assholes call Ross "Rulk".

It's so fucking lazy,

Re: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes cartoon cancelled

Yeah, but "Rulk" has as much effort put into it as Man of Actiom puts into the writing this season. Seriously, every episode they've touched has MAJOR plot fuckups. The Vision could have single handedly solved EVERY major battle since almost every enemy was stated to be impenetrable, yet Vision floats around like he's waiting for his check to clear or something.

And while I understand the misdirection part of Red Hulk and Ross, I honestly thought this Red Hulk was someone else, though again, that was probably Loeb or someone dropping the ball in regards to editing.

Yeah, Vision took on half the Avengers by himself, but was useless against some opponents.

How does Red Hulk turn back into a pudgy old man with a mustache?

He doesn't.

We don't who he is, and they went to great extents to prove that he isn't Ross.

Everybody lies.
