The Avengers has one of the largest followings in the world. And just like everything else with an Internet following, at some point it gets a television show. The good thing about the Avengers is that the core of it is the comic book series, from which the features are adapted. Marvel Entertainment can handle their properties, and Avengers Assemble resembles their cinematic universe without being a part of it. Another advantage of the series having half-hour episodes is that, unlike team-ups as we’re used to, standalone episodes can focus on specific characters each week if the writers wish.
