I don’t understand why more marvel fans don’t tell new fans looking for background (because comics are scary and confusing with how MUCH content there is, and reading wikis can be boring and ALSO confusing) to watch Earth’s Mightiest Heroes

It’s a kids’ show, so it’s easy to follow, and it’s only 52 half-hour episodes, so it doesn’t take long, but it introduces SO MANY comics characters and story arcs. It wont get you all of the content or info that reading the comics will, but its a much better primer than fanfic (which, tbh, is where I got a lot of my background knowledge), or nothing at all, and it’s a hell of a lot less confusing than trying to wade through wiki articles. It’ll also give you a pretty good starting point for WHICH wiki pages and comics you want to read. 

Seriously. People say to watch EMH because it’s good (and it’s so good), but they never explain what a great intro to Marvel it can be.
