The series’ first season was also region-locked upon release. On February 28, 2020, it was added to Disney+ and released internationally.
The anime follows Makoto, Adi, and Chloe as they transition from Hydra projects to members of the Avengers.
Upon meeting the Avengers, which they were raised to believe were evil, their new life begins as they learn and train under these living legends to someday protect the world in their stead. Hence the name – Future Avengers.
In 2014 Toei Entertainment collaborated with Marvel Entertainment to create Marvel Disk Wars: The Avengers. This show followed 5 children who can call upon various members of the Avengers who are trapped in “DISKs.”
The 51-episode long anime shows them traveling around the world to collect all the DISKs before they can be used for evil.
