DVD Review: The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Vol. 4

avengers4 DVD Review:  The Avengers: Earths Mightiest Heroes Vol. 4

Vol. 4 covers the last 7 episodes of the 1st season’s Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.  The show doesn’t have the most exciting animation and voice acting but the stories were pretty good, especially the final story arc.  In terms of style, I’d compare it to the 90’s Spider-Man cartoon on Fox only this has Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Black Panther, Hulk and the rest of the Avengers.  The show is very bright and colorful with one-liners every minute or so. 

Below are the episodes:

Casket of Ancient Winters –  The team faces ice creatures.  I didn’t enjoy this episode because there was no build up to invasion.

Hail, Hydra – Villains go at it to control the Cosmic Cube and the Avengers must stop both of them before it causes permanent destruction in the universe.  Good episode because it’s a 3 way battle.

Ultron- 5 – This is part 1 of a 2 parter.  Ultron tries to bring peace to the universe but some members are wary of his motives.

Ultron Imperative – 2nd and final part of the Ultron storyline.  This was a really cool story line because it was tragic and the tone was serious.

This Hostage Earth – Asgard sends its warriors to fight alongside the Avengers  to defend Earth against The Masters of Evil.  Great episode, I like it when Iron Man gets humbled and realizes he needs help once in a while.

Fall Of Asgard – The battle continues into the Galaxy and different realms.  Too much battle going on, reminded me of Dragon Ball Z.

A Day Unlike Any Other – Loki takes on the Avengers.  Epic way to end the 1st season.

Grade: B

This was an above average transfer but it seemed like the colors looked a little bit washed out.   Besides that issue, the video is clear and looks good.  The show is presented in anamorphic 1.78:1 widescreen. 
Grade: B

Dolby stereo is used for the audio track and it feels a bit flat.  I wish there was more use of surround sound especially during the battle.  Center channel is good and easy to comprehend.
Grade: B-


– Avengers Unmasked – Info for the heroes and villains.  Very informative.  I just wished it had more behind the scenes docuementary.
Grade: C-

The final volume of Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Hero has a story that will keep both adults and kids intrigued.  The presentation and extras could’ve been better.   If you’re excited for the next Marvel movie, check this show out because it will introduce you to the mythologies of the Marvel universe. 
Overall grade: B (not an average)
