Its funny how 5 years ago Avenger's Earth's Mightiest Heroes...

Introduced these, what I thought, Lame at the time heroes, and now they’ve blown up.

Avengers EMH was a show that used to play on Disney XD from 2010-2012

Sadly It got cancelled and replaced with some New BS but its still a good show that I highly recommend and its all on Netflix. It introduced tons of characters who have now become Mainstream thanks to the movies. 

When they first introduced Bucky Barnes/ Winter Soldier

All I thought was, who the Hell is this Robin/Redhood Rip off. Pan to 3 years later. He’s become a Badass and something fangirls drool over

When they first introduced the Guardians of the Galaxy or the Space Avengers as they put it

All I kept thinking is why does their leader have Master Chief’s voice (fun fact Steve Downes played Peter quill) and who the hell does this Tree think he is trying to fight the Hulk. 3 years later. Its being called the New Star Wars and people can’t stop quoting “I am groot" 

and When they first showed Ultron 

All I thought was, How the hell is Machine going to fight Thor and the Hulk, then they explained it and showed his abilities and now I’m hyped for his appearance in Avengers 2 

Rewatching the series again right now to see if any minor character might have their own movie again. and hopefully Ant Man will have a scene like this haha

My Top 10 Favorite Animated Opening Theme Songs

My buddies did a list of favorite original songs from animated shows. I haven’t because it would take a while. Until then, here’s something else. I did put a few rules for myself on this on. NO anime openings. NO English dub opening songs (sorry Pokemon). Lyrics or instrumental don’t matter, but the songs have to be so good I’d want to listen to them on my music player.


10. “Judo Flip” The Boondocks

I loved The Boondocks. I also loved the music in this show. It was mostly done by the artist Asheru. It was fresh, hip and soulful. This opening lets you know that you’re dealing with someone who has been enlightened by their struggles. 


9. “The Chosen One” American Dragon Jake Long

Listening to Dante Basco freestyle is both great and hilarious. I like both versions, so they share this spot. Pop punk with a smidge of Chinese influences and you got yourself a cool theme song.

Ya’ heard?


8. “What’s New, Scooby-Doo?” What’s New, Scooby-Doo?

I love pop punk. I love pop punk! Simple Plan is a long time name and they made an upbeat, lively theme into the Scooby-Doo lineup. Think of it as a updated version of the original show.


7. “It’s Ladybug!” Miraculous: Tales of Ladybug & Cat Noir

Yeah, it’s kinda campy and silly but so is the show. The theme lets Ladybug and Cat Noir share the spotlight and paints the show in your mind perfectly


6. “We are the Crystal Gems” Steven Universe

I never get tired of hearing this song. All the actors sing beautifully. Optimism and harmony. What more can you ask for?


5. “In the Loud House” The Loud House

I love pop punk. I grew up with it, and I still like it today. This song is as energetic as the show itself. It fits and the theme of family is still there. 


4. “A World Without Danger” Code Lyoko

The show is fine. The theme is uplifting to me. Filling me with hope and optimism. The idea of a bright future and that electronica sound is fantastic. I know it’s too corny for some, but sometimes I really need that optimism in my life.


3. “He’s Iron Man” Iron Man: Armored Adventures

I’m going to be honest I don’t really like this show that much. Major problem? It’s boring. Plain and simple. The premise isn’t super great either. Tony Stark as a teenager? Forget it. But the theme is a riffing good time. Rock with the little bits of electronica to throw in the tech influence and you’ll be cheering for everyone’s favorite jerk with a heart of gold. Just not the kid in the show.


2. “Spectacular!” The Spectacular Spider-Man

My favorite of all the Spider-Man cartoons, and that’s because I grew up loving the 1994 series. It’s not nostalgia. It’s my lifelong hero being perfected. The theme is catching and creative, not relying on previous themes. I jam out to this song, throwing my hands in the air saying “spectacular” over and over. 


1. “Fight As One” Avengers: Earth’s Mightiest Heroes

You hear this theme and you know it’s ass kicking time. A rock tune that gets you pumped to save the world. When the world is in despair, you put your cape on and fight. Because if we can’t save the world, you can bet your ass we’ll avenge it.


Honorable Mention: Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Pick one. Any one.

tony “being a superhero would be outlandish and… fantastic” stark, signing little kids’ iron man helmets and iron man drawings, keeping young fans’ iron man mail on random places in the house, stepping in to save a kid dressed as iron man from an angry drone and still taking care to compliment them for their good work so as not to crush their iron man dreams, calling the avengers “earth’s mightiest heroes” and nailing their catch-phrase while Monologuing Against The Villain, remodeling his entire tower and vacant stark industries warehouses to bear the logo of said superhero team and house its members – TONY STARK, THEN MEETING A KID WHO EMBODIES, IN THE PUREST SENSE, THE VERY SAME HEROIC IDEALS THAT HE LATCHES ON TO, AND THEN DOING EVERYTHING HE CAN TO KEEP THAT FLAME ALIVE IN THAT KID

tony “i’m not the hero type… clearly,” who was deemed not to have the right personality for the avengers, who was told he was just “pretending to be a hero,” who didn’t include himself in the avengers line-up when he was bragging about the team to loki, who was accused of tearing the avengers apart – TONY STARK, WHOSE HEROIC AMBITIONS WERE CONSTANTLY QUESTIONED AND SNEERED AT BY OTHERS, DOING THE EXACT OPPOSITE TO PETER PARKER, A KID WHOSE RESPONSIBILITY IDEALS MIRROR HIS OWN

“Captain America Saves New York from Spider-Man and the Serpent Society”? Are you kidding me?
