A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this TV show.
The show is intended to entertain rather than educate.
Even the most super of villains are no match for the forces of good. The bad guys might seem to have the upper hand at times, but they are eventually brought down by the Avengers.
Positive Role Models
The members of the Avengers bravely face any challenge, no matter how threatening, in their never-ending battle to keep the world safe from even the most powerful supervillains. Though they are constantly in danger, the heroes always prevail.
Violence & Scariness
Lots of animated superhero conflict, including blasters, explosions, heavy weaponry, and some major fistfights. Expect plenty of property damage and lots of potential threats to innocent bystanders, but very few actual injuries.

The entire show promotes the characters found in Marvel comic books, some of which have been made into popular films (or soon will be).
Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this animated series follows the exploits of a popular team of superheroes originally created in the pages of a Marvel comic book, and the subjects of hugely popular movies. The show is heavy on action, with plenty of super-powered battles that often lead to significant destruction of cars and buildings, but very few people are actually injured. There is enough plotting and planning to generate an ongoing storyline and develop the characters in a way that will appeal even to teens and older Marvel fans.
Is It Any Good?
There's plenty of action in AVENGERS: EARTH'S MIGHTIEST HEROES, but don't think it's just fight scenes and explosions. There are a lot of people here -- far more than most superhero shows, which tend to focus on just one main character. And all of the Avengers, as well as the main villains and the numerous supporting characters, have their own agendas. The good guys all share the same overall goal, but sometimes differ on tactics. This leads to storylines that are more complex, and more interesting, than the common smash-up-the-bad-guys plots. The conflict will appeal to younger viewers, and the ongoing plot and evolving characters will be interesting for teens and older viewers, especially fans of the Marvel comic book universe.
