The parents' guide to what's in this TV show.

Educational Value

This title intends to entertain rather than to educate.

Positive Messages

Violence is presented as the only option in the superheroes' exchanges with their villainous counterparts. Brute strength, super speed, and the ability to take a beating and keep fighting are shown as positive qualities, but there are some instances in which strategy and thoughtful cooperation tip the balance in favor of the good guys. Teamwork is hard fought among the hotheaded Avengers, but when they're all on the same page, they're a force to be reckoned with.

Positive Role Models & Representations

The Avengers are heroes in the truest sense of the word, putting themselves between the bad guys and the innocent public. But the story also shows them to be petty, competitive, and egotistical at times, which can interfere with their work and put them at risk. The lone female in the group often is the most level-headed of the bunch and proves invaluable in strategizing their moves.

Violence & Scariness

Lots of blow-'em-up exchanges with gunfire, missiles, and other weapons of destruction, and some characters show signs of being weakened or injured. Hand-to-hand combat also takes place, though injuries are less prevalent from this kind of exchange. Some of the characters have super powers that allow them to control their enemies' movements.

Sexy Stuff

No cursing, but the heroes say things like "butt" and "stupid."


The show is linked to a massive product conglomerate of toys, books, games, apparel, and other items bearing the characters' images.

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that, as with most superhero stories, violence is the biggest concern in Marvel's Avengers Assemble. The heroes typically rely on brute force to upend their enemies, and weapons like guns often come into play. Less often strategy proves an invaluable tool in the exchanges, and teamwork (which is a challenge for these heroes) is essential in the process. Expect some bickering and power struggles among the Avengers, but on the flip side, victories as a group are celebrated by all and serve as proof of the value of teamwork.

What's the story?

MARVEL'S AVENGERS ASSEMBLE is the continuing story of a team of evil-fighting superheroes originally told in The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes. After a break-up of the team, Iron Man (voiced by Adrian Pasdar) reunites them to challenge a new round of villains bent on taking over the planet. Joining Iron Man are Hulk (Fred Tatasciore), Captain America (Roger Craig Smith), Thor (Travis Willingham), Hawkeye (Troy Baker), Black Widow (Laura Bailey), and newcomer Falcon (Bumper Robinson).

Is it any good?

Little has changed in the Avengers' job description between Earth's Mightiest Heroes and this follow-up Marvel-inspired series, so precious little will come as a surprise. They're still tasked with protecting the planet from a host of powerful foes, and they still stumble under the demands of teamwork from time. Most evident is the role some of their larger-than-life egos play in their struggles with working alongside each other after a hiatus that saw most of them flying solo and calling their own shots.

If you're familiar with the Avengers' previous work -- or nearly any superhero story, for that matter -- then you know what to expect with regard to the show's prevalent but fantasy-based violence. If the impact of this kind of content isn't a concern for your kids, then they'll be sure to enjoy the complex relationships and exciting adventures of this diverse team of heroes.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about what it takes to be a hero. Who in your life would you consider a hero? How do their actions earn them that title?

  • The Avengers don't always get along, but when push comes to shove, they make a formidable team. How do you relate to people who are different from you? How does compromise benefit everyone involved?

  • How does the violence in this show compare to that of some others you've seen? Did any of it worry or frighten you? What would happen if you tried to handle conflict the way these characters do?
