Avengers: Secret Wars Debuts Ms. Marvel Short

Avengers: Secret Wars Debuts Ms. Marvel Short

Marvel’s Avengers: Secret Wars released their first promotional short via IGN. The shorts focus on the show’s six new heroes. Check it out below.

Avengers (Continue) Assembling!

At the end of the third season of Disney XD’s Avengers Assemble, Earth’s Mightiest Heroes were in a bad way. Based on the few details we know about the fourth season, the team goes missing and Black Panther brings a new group of heroes together to investigate. Yes, many of the characters featured heavily in season three. However, a lot of them don’t have proper backstories. So, Disney is releasing a series of shorts acquainting fans with the new crop of heroes. IGN debuted the first short today. Check out Kamala Khan’s first day as an Avenger below!

The short packs a lot into its brief runtime. We see Kamala navigating her normal day and family life while saving New York from….a giant frog. Followed by her first day as a member of the Avengers. Of course, Disney left out the juiciest bits for the premiere. But, the short provides a nice groundwork for the character and her abilities. Hopefully the remaining shorts bring the same sense of familiarity to the characters.

Sure, it’s easy to be cynical about the animated Marvel shows. The animation isn’t great. And, most of those characters feature heavily into the MCU movies. On the other hand, there is a positive method to the madness. Many adult fans of these characters never dreamed of a world where Ant-Man, The Wasp, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Vision, and Ms. Marvel headlined their own cartoon. Now that they are, the storytelling potential is virtually unlimited. Films like The Dark Knight and Logan push the limits of superhero storytelling. But for the limits to be pushed, shows like Avengers: Secret Wars are required stepping stones.
