Is the October 20 premiere date for "Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes" too far away for you? Well, you're in luck, as Marvel and Disney XD's micro-episodes
intended to school viewers on the all-star superhero team have begun rolling out at a pretty breakneck pace.Naturally, the first "Avengers" micro-episode focuses on team leader and current Marvel mascot Tony Stark. The episode, titled "Iron Man is Born!," begins with a bit that could be ripped straight from the reels of "Cloverfield," as an amateur documentarian inadvertently films a giant, menacing robot wreaking havoc from the ocean depths. Who comes to save the day? No spoilers, but I'll give you a hint - his name is in the title of the episode! (Okay, that's essentially a spoiler)
The second micro-episode made its debut today, showcasing the easily enraged green menace known as the Hulk. In "The Coming of the Hulk," the Jade Giant squares off against one of his classic foes, the Absorbing Man outside of a diner. To the surprise of no one, Absorbing Man learns that he does not like the Hulk when he's angry, but fans will very likely dig Bruce's retro-inspired transformation sequence.
Check out both episodes below, and stay on the lookout for more micro-episodes building up the premiere of "Earth's Mightiest Heroes."
