Don’t let the animated format put you off of this thoughtful series full of imaginative designs and compelling, layered characters. It finds the sweet spot between mature themes and lighter, more whimsical fare.
It’s great to see Disney and Marvel taking a chance with an original series that makes the most of the television medium. Although, considering the popularity of the Avengers movies and the talented cast involved, it was a pretty safe bet.
