So while it looks like these comics won’t be a direct adaptation of the stories that you’ll see taking place in the Avengers and Spider-Man cartoon shows, they will be set within the same variation of the Marvel ‘universe’ that exists there. Whether the comics will ever be mentioned, or have an impact on, those shows remains to be seen though.
Regardless of continuity though, ,this is a great move from Marvel. I can remember very well, watching superhero cartoons as a kid then getting into the comics. In a way, the shows led me into reading more, which is fantastic for children and something that they always should do more of. Linking the comics to the shows (which are already quite popular) just makes total sense and should be even more tempting than, say, a child watching Ultimate Spider-Man and then picking up an issue of Amazing. Not to mention the fact that these books are way more tailored to a young reader and more than likely won’t feature any questionable content- just good old fashioned superhero action. And who doesn’t like that?
Marvel Universe: Avengers Assemble Season Two #1 and Marvel Universe: Ultimate Spider-Man: Web Warriors #1 should be both on the racks this coming November.
