Avengers Assemble & Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H

I’m putting both these Marvel cartoons under one heading which I normally don't normally do except they don't deserve their own entry. There isn't much to say about these cartoons of comic superheroes as the plots are very cut and dry, the art rather mediocre, the characters are 100% archetypes, and at the end of every episode somebody learns a nice lesson. Is there something going on that's making comic book inspired cartoons so very bland? It doesn't feel like that long ago that there were amazing, well-written, action-packed, interestingly animated, and nuanced cartoons involving superheroes, but on reflection I guess that was almost a generation ago. Sorry, kids, comic cartoons are just for kids; I wish we could given you more.
