The Best Episodes of The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes
Last Updated: Feb 8, 2019
This animated series follows the adventures of the superhero team The Avengers - primarily consisting of Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, the Hulk, Ant-Man (a.k.a. Giant-Man), Wasp, Hawkeye, and the Black Panther - as they team up to save the world from dangers far too great for one superhero to handle alone. The Avengers frequently work with S.H.I.E.L.D., a peacekeeping agency run by Nick Fury (while the two aren't competing to save the world by their own means, which are often quite different).
#2 - Avengers Assemble!
Season 2 - Episode 25
From the very moment of their team's inception, the Avengers have fought against super-villains, time-travelling conquerors and even shape-shifting alien invaders. But now they must bring forth an army of nearly all their allies to face their greatest challenge yet - Galactus, the devourer of countless worlds and civilizations, and his quartet of heralds drawn from the very elements of nature.
#5 - The Ultron Imperative

#7 - Powerless
Season 2 - Episode 26
The Enchantress, as part of her master Surtur's plan, offers Loki a chance to exact his revenge on Thor and the Avengers for thwarting his conquest of the Nine Realms, and uses a spell to strip Thor, Captain America, and Iron Man of their powers. Now, the helpless heroes must defeat Loki - his soul now in command of a powerful Asgardian weapon known as the Destroyer - without their abilities. NOTE: This episode was skipped in US airings, but included on the Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes boxed volume Secret Invasion as a bonus episode. Marvel released a clip of the episode, adding that it is "an un-aired episode available exclusively" on the DVD.
