Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers

Toei and Marvel have teamed up to create a new anime, and unsurprisingly, it seems blatantly toy-centered. Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers will feature regular children who can summon Earth’s mightiest heroes from portable disks, Pokemon-style. Unlike several Marvel anime projects (e.g. Iron Man, Wolverine, Dracula), this actually feels like a Japanese-initiated project, in that it’s, well, really weird. I think this is a good move, because trying to cater an anime to American tastes is sort of pointless, and the last time Toei said “screw Marvel canon” we got the 1978 Spider-man with Leopardon.
