Personally, I get what Loeb's trying to do. But wasn't that the point of the Superhero Squad and having Avengers: EMH? One show could be the kiddie version while the other can be the later kiddie and actual Marvel fan could enjoy?
There is nothing about the current Avengers cartoon that doesn't work for kids. My 2 year old daughter loves the show. My older kid loves the show. I love the show. It's got continuity, but most episodes have a beginning middle and end, and can be enjoyed without seeing anything else (though the continuity enhances things). It's really a perfect balance, much like Batman: The Animated Series or JLU or any of the great DCAU shows.
If we only get 2 seasons and 50ish episodes, that's still better than Legion of Superheroes or Spectacular Spider-Man, but it's sad and with Loeb in charge it's hard to believe things will get better and not worse, especially with comments like the ones at the start of the thread. And the same goes for live action shows if he's the guiding force behind them. He has no vision and no idea how to tell a coherent long form story, which is what serialized television is all about. This was clear from everything he's done in comics and TV in the past.
