Iron Man, Hulk, Thor, Ant-Man and Wasp have defeated some of the most dangerous Super Villains on the planet. But when the Super Villain prison system mysteriously shuts down, chaos is unleashed on the world.
Earth's Mightiest Heroes must now band together as the Avengers to protect the planet from the threats that no single Super Hero could face alone.
Their first task is to try and stop Graviton, a being whose power dwarfs anything ever seen. He's after Nick Fury, but will destroy the world to get to him. Individually the heroes have no chance, but together they can make a difference.
Hulk wastes no time making craters with Hall's face. Thor thinks Hulk is an Orge. Graviton's power are doing little to stop or even hinder the Hulk. All the soon-to-be Avengers are pinned down by Graviton, this makes the Hulk angrier, and the angrier he gets the stronger he is. This gives him the strength to over come Graviton's force holding him down. Pym de-Bigulates to try a new strategy, calling his insect friends to distract Hall, to give Hulk a chance. Its a battle of pure strength now as Hulk tries to stand and Hall tries to keep him down. It's pretty awesome stuff to be quiet honest, I was practically leaping from my chair cheering when I first watched it, it may have elicited strange looks from my wife . . .
The strain is getting to Hall, while the Hulk is only getting stronger, so Halls throws an entire islands worth of shipping containers at the Hulk. It is now that Pym's insect best friends arrives at Hall and bites him, breaking his concentration. Seizing the moment Hulk flies at his target, and makes another crater with his face. This allows the other almost-Avengers to get free. Hall lifts Hulk high into the sky and start hitting him with shipping containers again. Pym, Thor and Iron Man begin their assault on Hall to keep him off balance, and Wasp clears way for Hulk to get a clear shot at him. Hulk is shocked at this act of co-operation but is also happy for the help. Hulk hits but its once more flung back.
Hall starts using the very Earth as a weapon. The nearly-Avengers begin a coordinated and unrelenting attack on Hall. Hank Pym does something weird he goes Giant and picks up a boat a throws it at Graviton, now I'm sure that thing has a crew on it, who are most certainly killed when it explodes on Hall's head. oh that Hank Pym and his antics . . .
The thought of the innocent sailors savagely murdered by Giant Man is enough to break Hall's concentration long enough for Thor to power up a "Lightening III - For Midgard!" attack. That takes out Hall, and a large chunk of New York by the looks of it. Then we don't think about that and have a Heroic Group shot! Pym lectures him about how be put millions of lives at risk (not counting the fifty or so people Hank himself just killed) Thor wants to celebrate (with drinking straws involved somehow I'm sure)
Shield arrives and want the Hulk in custody, his new teams mates say you want the Hulk you go through us to get him. As usual Fury arrives to tell his men to stop acting stupid! He announces that seventy four super villains are now on the loose across the globe. He offers the proto-Avengers a job with shield to round them up.
Iron Man partially agrees with Fury, he wants to be a team, just not with Shield in a pretty inspiring speech. Jan offers the name Avengers and no one objects. Clay Quartermain tells fury that Graviton didn't wake up until after the Raft went offline. So whatever caused the breakout to happen, it wasn't him. So who was . . .
Wow wasn't that a great start to a season. I have no complaints, really just one observation. Lets talk body counts, I don't think Graviton actually killed anyone directly bar the Fury LMD, unless anyone decided to jump/fall off the edges of his floating islands, everything on them seemed to remain intact. Hank Pym picked up a random cargo boat with looked fully laden so I'm sure was still crewed and just through it at him. Thor when he was bouncing Hall off the busy streets we say a few cars that had to be totally destroyed passengers included, and then the final blast Thor did to knock out Hall, the size of the initial crated was huge, granted when it zoomed in the crated had drastically shrank. So the death toll for this battle is something like this.
Graviton - One robot, and maybe a few indirect accidents due to stupid people falling into giant holes.
Hank Pym - I'm not sure how many people crew a boat that size, fifty is not an unreasonable guess.
Thor - Easily thousands of people in the crater and twenty thirty on the busy street.
I give you our heroes ladies and gentle men
