Marvel Future Avengers (マーベル フューチャー・アベンジャーズ, Māberu Fu~yūchā Abenjāzu) is a Japanese superhero anime television series produced by Madhouse and Walt Disney Japan, based on the Marvel Comics universe. The first season began airing on the Dlife satellite channel in July 2017 and ran for 26 episodes, followed by a 13 episode second season in 2018. The series was released internationally through Disney+ in February 2020.[1][2]


The series follows Makoto, Adi, and Chloe, three teenagers who have been raised by Hydra to believe that they are being trained to become superheroes and that the Avengers are villains. The three have been genetically modified by Hydra, resulting in each gaining the unique superhuman abilities of air manipulation, technology control, and shapeshifting respectively. After being sent on missions for Hydra, Adi and Chloe come to realize the organization's evil intentions and decide to defect. Makoto joins them, becoming the only one to escape, and he goes to Tony Stark for help. Stark brings in the other Avengers, and with Makoto's help, they succeed in defeating Hydra, liberating Adi and Chloe. Realizing the potential they have, the Avengers decide to take the three in and train them to become superheroes, dubbing the team the "Future Avengers". While training the new recruits, the Avengers also seek to learn more about the "Emerald Rain Project," a dangerous scheme being orchestrated by Hydra and the Masters of Evil, and what connection it has to Makoto. The matter becomes further complicated when Bruno, another genetically modified teen and Makoto's best friend, is manipulated into joining the Masters of Evil's ranks.[3]

In the show's second season, exposure to Terrigen Mist leads to several humans developing superpowers. With anti-Inhuman sentiment on the rise and the Inhuman royal family claiming custody of the afflicted, the Avengers and Future Avengers, now including Bruno, must manage the fallout of the outbreak and attempt to broker peace between Earth and Attilan before they are forced to go to war.
