“The Avengers” Comes to TV

Wednesday, October 13th, 2010

Marvel Comics’s premiere superhero team, The Avengers, is headed to Disney XD next week as an ongoing cartoon series.

For the past month, Marvel Comics has been showing five-minute micro-episodes on their website which have been replaying on Disney XD all week.

The show premieres next Wednesday at 8:30 PM with an hour-long episode.

Marvel has also announced a four-issue miniseries to complement the television show, which is set to be in stores in November.

I assume all this has been done to build excitement for the coming Avengers movie in 2012. Well, that’s a job well-done.

On a personal note, I won an eBay auction last week to have lunch with the Editor-in-Chief of Marvel Comics, Joe Quesada, at the New York Comic Con on Friday. Here’s a picture of us the Marvel booth at the convention. Can you say “nerdgasm”?
