Review: Ultimate Avengers on DVD

The DVD for the first Marvel animated film [straight to DVD] comes out next week [Feb 26th] and it is called The Ultimate Avengers. Obviously it is a story about the Avengers. Who are the Avengers? They are a group of super heroes lead by Captain American. The members are mostly loans who now must work together to save the world. Besides Captain American the Avengers are comprised of The Hulk, Iron Man, Thor, Wasp and Giant Man.

Since this is a first for the Avenger films we get loaded down with lots of back story, especially Captain America [but then again he is the main guy in the series]. I had a chance to see this film last week [lucky me got it before street date]. And it really is not a bad film, liked the animation, it reminded me of the good old days of cartoons on TV --- Spider-man and the X-men shows. Looking forward to having the chance to see more Marvel animated films in the future. So everyone head out and pick this up next week when it comes out and show your support....the further away from character introductions we get the better the stories will be.

When you do get it check out the special features, the interviews with the different writers and artists is well worth watching and it will fill you in on the history of the Avengers, if, like me, you know very little about them.
