I have, and it gradually gets more and more ridiculous.

Plot contrivances GALORE. Tons of conveniences, too many to seem plausible. And they get worse as the seasons progress, yo.

I don't think so. That's kind of a nose up at the material. And it's what held it back for so long on screen. They have the capability of being so much more than "cartoon pictures"

That's why they've had such longevity. They've proven to be reflections of real world society. Life imitates art, and art imitates life. These characters and stories should peel back layers to the times. You can take these characters, give great mass marketed entertainment for all ages, while also making intelligent psychological statements and dramas.

Avengers literally makes it a cartoon made to make fun of ... or have cheap fun. However you see it, I guess.
