1. When that show started it was just as campy as this and it took a while to hit the ground running. It wasn't until the Wonder Man story and Ultron being seeded everywhere that it ramped up.

3. Because that kind of marketing is why comic sales are in the shitter and our demographic is carrying the comic industry on its back. It's got a bit of everyone in that regard.
So which part of the beginning of Avengers was lighthearted? The whole Raft breakout, Hulk's blood being stolen by a hero and given to former Nazis as she turns out to be a traitor, Cap getting saved by a dying Bucky, Gravitron, Ulton showing up in the prison, Loki plotting everything, Hank showing doubts about what they are doing and wanting to be non-violent, or any of the other stuff from the first online episodes and the premiere all seemed much more serious in tone than what we've seen on Spider-Man and it certainly hit the ground running laying the foundations for Kang, Ultron, the Masters of Evil, Loki's big plot, the rise of HYDRA, and pretty much every other major plot of the first season.
