The Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes!

I must admit, when I first started watching this I thought it would be one of those shows marketed towards really young kids.  Boy was I wrong!   This show has something for everyone.  Young kids will love their favorite super heroes beating their favorite villains.  Adults will see their cherished memories of their favorite comic books come to life in a very “true to the original” way.  Yes, there is some cheesy dialogue and some of the characters did {Read More}
