Radical but I liked it

"I'm not up on the current floppies (I'm a Silver Age guy), so I don't know if this timeline is canon or not. But it sure was fun seeing a glimpse of what happens to Tony Stark and David Banner in the future--and the action is creative and non-stop. I've enjoyed both previous Avengers movies; this one's different, but exciting in its own way. If you like Iron Man, check it out. Stark plays a huge role."
Marvel Animated Universe is Half Bad

"As a long time Marvel Comics fans, I'm almost a little scared. After years of substandard movies, Marvel has finally put together a series of films (not including X-3--that sucked) that make every Marvel comic fan happy. Things have gone so well in the live action arena, people have forgotten about the high quality animation that Marvel is putting out. Iron Man was pitch perfect in the live action outing this summer. Before that however, it was a great animated movie. The Liongates partnership with Marvel has produced great stuff and the Next Avenger is no different. Crafting new characters for younger audience, this movie promises that the animated film line can grow the Marvel audience in a way that movies and comics are not. The story is great, a well known bad guy, new kid friendly characters base on classic heroes, and great visual style all work together to make this a story that will be easy for non comic fans to enjoy. This is a crucial part of the marketing machine that Marvel should not neglect. Where is the next generation of comic readers coming from? If they are smart they will put these characters into print, create a video game, put together some easy to access digital comics (their current subscription service is not a great model) and get eyeballs on new characters and old."

"OK...at least Marvel has done what DC has yet to do...Killed off Heroes and had them have children. As for the storyline...it could have been better. It was too predictable. Perhaps the next adventure will be better written. Still, it's worth the view and for any comic fan is a nice addition to any collection."

"This is a great, really well done Marvel story and the kids in no way take away from its appeal - they rather add to it. I was shocked to find that I enjoyed this much more than the previous Ultimate Avengers DVDs (which I felt suffered from unavoidable comparisons to the graphic novels they were based on). As another reviewer mentioned, Next Avengers has a lot of heart, and far more depth and action than you would expect from something for the kids. This would be a great series if they can maintain the level of the writing. Highly recommended."
