Plot Synopsis

The Avengers -- Iron Man; Thor; Captain America; Hulk; Ant-Man/Giant Man; Wasp; Hawkeye; and Black Panther -- are the greatest superheroes. They're the ones who have the fate of the world resting on their shoulders as they venture around the globe, into space, through time and across dimensions to protect Earth from Super Villains, such as: Loki; Kang the Conqueror; Ultron; Doctor Doom; Baron Zemo; Enchantress; Crimson Dynamo; HYDRA; and more. To help them track and takedown these Super Villains, Tony Stark donated his Manhattan home for the Avengers' headquarters and all of their technology and gadgets, including the Quinjet and their high-tech Identification Cards. THE AVENGERS: EARTHS MIGHTIEST HEROES tells their story from the time the team formed. The series starts with 20 micro-movies, and each of these five-minute, self-contained episodes introduces the core team members before the Avengers formed. All of these short-form programs lead up to the series premiere when the Super-Villain prison system breaks down, releasing 75 Super Villains simultaneously and causing a wave of chaos to sweep over the planet. At this moment, the heroes realize they have no chance individually, but together they can make a difference. As the heroes come together for the first time as a team, they must deal with the break and GRAVITON.
