Loeb will rub salt in the wounds of Earth's Mightiest Heroes fans at the Marvel Animation Presents panel at San Diego Comic Con as Avengers Assemble is revealed!
Jeph Loeb, the head of Marvel's Animation department, views popular, high-quality animated series in roughly the same way that Dracula views sunlight. Not content with his victories over all that was good and holy about Marvel animated properties in the cancellation of beloved shows Spectacular Spider-Man and Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes, Loeb plans to hold a rally at San Diego Comic Con's Marvel Animation Presents panel to celebrate their demise and promote his abominable replacements: Avengers Assemble, Ultimate Spider-Man, and Hulk: Agents of S.M.A.S.H..
Attendees to the event are encouraged to bring copies of Spectacular Spider-Man and Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes DVDs to be set ablaze in a massive bonfire on Saturday, July 14 at 10:30am in Room 6BCF. After the auditorium has been cleansed of undesirable cartoons, Loeb will show off Avengers Assemble for the first time, a reveal akin to Darth Vader unveiling the Death Star.
The Outhouse reached out to Loeb for comment on the event, but he just bared his teeth and hissed at us, then scampered off into the shadows.
Here's the press release:
