More Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes coolness

So, is anyone getting tired of me posting information about Avengers?  I hope not, because I’m going to keep doing it.  Feel free to skip by if you’re not interested.  I’m extremely fired up to see this cartoon, so I fully intend on posting about the videos as they’re uploaded.
The latest five-minute short focuses on The Hulk… is the first place to post it (which doesn’t allow embedding for some weird reason).  It’s on the same video page that the Iron Man one was posted yesterday.
Along with that, has also begun posting their own content, including very short snippets of the origins of the Avengers.  First two are Thor and Captain America.

Captain America

Along with those, also has hosted the Iron Man Micro-Episode, so it’s embeddable now!

This cartoon really looks great.  It has a very “realistic” feel to it.  Sure, the animated style is the typical distorted look, but the dialog is very mature and natural, the action is very well choreographed…it really rocks.  October 20th…I’ve marked my calendar!

More insanely awesome pre-production art from Bill Merklein

Over on, Gyre-Viper has released another swatch of pre-production artwork from Hasbro sculpting legend Bill Merklein.  Responsible for many of our favorite G.I. Joe toys from the 80’s, Mr. Merklein has been generous enough to share these details and images with us, and Gyre-Viper has been a huge help getting it out to the public.
Some really, really awesome stuff here.  I can’t get enough of it.  I’ve mirrored a bunch of the images below.
