Screw You Jeph Loeb. Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes Cancelled, Ultimate Spider-Man Returns

We heard the rumors a couple of months ago and it appears they will come true.  We will be losing Earths Mightiest Heroes this season in exchange for Avengers Assemble, which is presumably the Ultimates based cartoon designed to link up with Ultimate Spider-Man that we were threatened with. 

Now, at first glance, it doesn’t seem that terrible.  Obviously after the Avengers made one gazillion dollars in theaters they wanted to get their cartoon closer to that.  So we’ll be getting a team that’s pretty much the one in the movie, except also with Falcon, because let’s be honest, that was a pretty white cast.  It’s still a show about the Avengers, right?  I’d like to say this isn’t bad news, but Earth’s Mightiest Heroes was good, and Ultimate Spider-Man is shit.  Why would we want to move the Avengers in that direction?

Meanwhile, Ultimate Spider-Man is coming back, because people clearly love Drake Bell Spider-Man.  People are idiots.
