What is Stan Lee's Mighty 7 about?

Reality, fantasy and adventure collide in this action-fueled animated movie from comic book legend StanLee. When Stan stumbles upon seven aliens who have crash-landed in the desert, he soon finds himself swept up in their journey as a top-secret military force led by the ominous Mr. Cross and the evil reptilian Taegons close in on the group. He quickly moves them to his Malibu beach house, but in order to guarantee their survival, Stan must show the Mighty 7 how to develop their powers and become Earth’s newest team of superhero fighters.

It was ok, the animation felt a little weird, but I got use to it pretty quick. For a kids show the plot wasn't half bad.

I saw a trailer of it , it seemed fast paced :P , music constantly ( I can't stand that ) ,but maybe the final product won't be like that , hopeful.

This looks intriguing. I'll have to see this.

Let's just hope this one isn't sued, like you-know-who was...

We truly miss you, Stripperella. (And not just because of your great pair or sweet ass, but also because you were funny)

Agreed specially where to explain the origins and the plots. Something that would make a better series than a movie.

Who the heck is that and why was she sued? Also never heard of this Stan Lee might 7 before. But it's Marvel animation so probbably won't check it out. Best comics and live action movies but their animation stuff straight up sucks. Earths Mightiest Hero is considered their best animated thing and so far what i've seen of that straight up sucked too. Spectacular Spider-Man was good but that was more Sony.

  • Stripperella, a cartoon Stan made starring Pamela Anderson as a superhero who's secret identity is a stripper. Stan was sued for stealing the idea from an actual stripper (don't ask) so the show only lasted 13 episodes.
  • I've never heard of them either, but it does look interesting
  • What the hell do you have against EMH? They made the Grim friggin' Reaper, captain of the D-list villains, a total badass! Wait, was it season 2? Because a lot of people say that wasn't as good as season 1. At least the second half.
  • I like your username, by the way

@amazingwebhead: Thanks from what i can remember overall i'm only really watching the origin episodes right now watching in order. So the Iron Man episode,Thor episode,Captain America episode, Hulk episode their not even the Avengers yet though that's me currently watching the show i've seen random episodes before where BP is inside the Avengers tower, saw Hawkeyes introduction saw the episode where Spider-Man had to make a new team. The show seems to childish. DC animation even on CN do a good job at making it still intresting for adults. Though EMH might get better idk. But shows like Young Justice got me hooked to the show from the start. I have an awesome avatar to go with the name but my comicvines kind of busted it won't let me change my avatar.

@thewalkingdeadpool18: Well you're welcome to your opinion, but I still like the show. (And yeah, Young Justice was awesome)

Looks like they changed the female's costumes. To bad.

Also, the red female looks like a guy on the cover & that pic with Stan looking at hims computer.

I really wish "american" animation would improve their quality of their art style.I mean, anime isnt perfect, but it at least looks better.
