"THE AVENGERS: EARTH'S MIGHTIEST HEROES!," A NEW MARVEL ANIMATED SERIES, PREMIERES WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20 ON DISNEY XD

Micro-Episodes to Roll Out on Multiple Platforms Beginning Wednesday, September 22

"The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!," an all-new animated series featuring the best of the best in the Marvel Universe, premieres WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 20 (8:30 p.m., ET/PT) on Disney XD. Produced by Marvel Animation, the series stars the world's greatest heroes -- Iron Man, Thor, Captain America, The Hulk, Ant-Man/Giant Man and Wasp -- who form the Avengers, a team assembled when the powers of a single hero are not enough to save the world.

Beginning WEDNESDAY, SEPTEMBER 22, Disney XD, DisneyXD.com/Avengers, Marvel.com, MarvelKids.com and Disney XD Mobile will roll out 20 micro-episodes introducing the team's core members. Each five-and-half-minute episode focuses on the back story, allies and nemeses of the heroes before the Avengers were formed.

In the two-part series premiere, "The Breakout," 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.
