Should Marvel Animation fans put their foot down?

Should Marvel Animation fans put their foot down?

After several "questionable" decisions, should fans stick up for their favorite shows?

Its no secret that fans have shown displeasure in recent executive decisions made by Marvel's animation studio. Whether you loved "Wolverine and the X Men" or had fond memories of "The Spectacular Spider Man" most have met an abrupt and unwanted end. The most recent and surprising upset is the cancellation of the successful "Avengers: Earths Mightiest Heroes" while the widely negatively received "Ultimate Spider Man" gains another season.
That being said, should fans organize and make their voices abundantly clear? Fans rallying together has proven effectve in the past like the recent return of TOONAMI or Mass Effect's extended cut (though that outcome has yet to be seen). Fans like these

have already displayed displeasure for Avenger's fall not to mention the other petitions for other shows. Perhaps its time that we step up and (politely mind you) display our concerns to help Marvel Animation bring in a better audience. As always theres no guarantee in a manner like this and we may not get what we want but why not draw the line now? Until then fans may have to endure more show retoolings and more programs to invest in only to be cancelled.

I'm putting my foot down!

I would like to see a Marvel Heroes series in which they have different Marvel characters each week, maybe two stories per episode. They could carry story arcs for 2-3 episodes. The art should be exceptional, not generic like a lot of shows. nuff said

Signed!

Hopefully we can make a difference and keep EMH on the air.

Is that picture from above for the new Avengers cartoon or an EMH promo? Because if its for the new show, it has Hank Pym, which at least puts one of my fears to rest about the new show

People just crying over things that have yet to be seen. Avengers Assemble hasn't even had a trailer or clip shown yet and people are crying that EMH is being canceled.

@mrTinman: What makes you think that if Marvel got the rights back for Spider-Man that it would turn out like Ultimate Spider Man, I think your smart enough to know that it wouldn't be anything like a cartoon.

I seriously don't understand why people think that one bad thing means everything after it is gonna be bad, like Spider-Man 3 has people constantly paranoid that any other film with more then 2 villains is going to be bad or that Avengers Assemble is going to turn into Ultimate Spider Man.

I don't know if anyones notice but Ultimate Spider Man is for a much younger age group then it's past instalments.

I'm not signing anything, butch of babies need to grow up.

Avengers Assemble can't possibly be any worse than EMH. I'm looking forward to the new show. EMH is absolutely brutal.

Isn't "Avengers Assemble" potentially an upgrade? It obviously is produced to draw in the movie fans.

"Spectacular" blows away "Ultimate." I love Spider-Man. "Ultimate" is nothing like its title suggests nor is it engaging in the least.

An uninformed submission. Than cancellation of EMH was expected since Disney entered the picture, and we're lucky to have got a second season. Wolverine and the X-Men was canceled because marvel couldn't get the funding together, and up until Disney Marvels always had problems keeping on series on the air or not.

You can't expect Disney to like the Idea of giving another animation studio work when they have their own studio that can be used. You can want something more mature but Ultimate Spider-Man is targeting at Disney's usual audience on their Kids programming.

If you want a run longing series what they're doing is the only way to get it. If you want something more mature then you're going to have to get lucky, and convince the person in charge that they shouldn't be targeting 6 year olds.

Nah, i'll put my feet up and watch shows for my age. Yes some of these animated shows are fun to watch but i doubt the children watching the show week in week out are on here hoping to get them cancelled. They are entitled to have shows they like and if these are them so be it. We had our time, right now we should count ourselves lucky if we get a young justice or a aemh. For now just go about your lives and wait for the next show dont demand it.

I want quality shows as much as anyone else but not really sure how to influence the creators.
