My 3-year-old son Jack is currently a huge Avengers fan. He loves Iron Man, The Hulk, and Thor, but far and away his favorite Avenger is Captain America. He has one of those frisbee Captain America shields with him at all times now. It even has dog teeth marks where he had to wrestle it away from the neighbor dog after a fateful battle.

Lately he's been watching the new Avengers cartoon on Disney's XD and really enjoying it, but I'm worried that he may not enjoy the movie this summer as much as the cartoons.

I, on the other hand, am very excited for the film opening May 4th. I grew up reading Spider-man comic books, and already have a deep, nerdy, working knowledge of the Avengers. Marvel has created a lot of ground work for this film through the previous four stand-alone movies.

Do you think it will pay off? I really hope so.
