This time around we look at another episode of Marvel’s Avengers Assemble (which clear needs the word Marvel’s in front, incase you thought it was someone else’s Avengers), titled The Ambassador.
Dr. Doom wants to speak at the UN, but has asked, nay demanded, that the Avengers act as his bodyguards. Why does he need their help? Because the Cabal (Red Skull, Dracula, Hyperion, MODOK, and Attuma) are out to get him for rejecting their invitation. As it turns out, he only really wanted Captain America, but had to take the rest with him.
Hyperion strikes first, while Doom is giving his speech (which he does with the aid of a universal translator he invented). (Wait, is it really universal? Will any creature in the universe understand him? Sorry, got off a bit there). MODOK, as the adaptoid, Dracula and Attuma come next and the Avengers find themselves split up and trying to get Doom back to the safety of their tower.
Cap takes the lead and tries to escort him back himself while the rest of the team plays defense. Although how Hawkeye is able to take care of himself is a mystery to me. The Red Skull ambushes Cap and Doom, and then, to everyone’s surprise, Doom saves Captain America’s life! It’s a Christmas miracle. With Doom on his back, Cap sprints the rest of the way to the tower.
But it’s then we discover that it has all been a ploy by Doom to get into the Tower. What did he want? And will the Avengers stop him? all that happens in the last 5 minutes or so of the show, so I’ve basically told you the whole thing. But I’m not going to give away the ending. This show is still fairly recent, so go watch it yourself. It’s a good one.
