In 1997 Roland Poindexter, the supervising executive in charge of animated series at Fox, approached X-Men: The Animated Series (1992) animated series writers Robert N. Skir and Marty Isenberg to develop a proposal for an Avengers cartoon. After creating a detailed thirteen-episode story arc, the network decided a Captain America series would be more suited to its schedule. But before Fox could green-light either series, Marvel went into bankruptcy, effectively ending the development process for all its shows. It wasn't until after the publisher's financial woes were resolved in late 1998 that Poindexter revived interest in the Avengers project, this time approaching former X-Men series story editor Eric Lewald and his wife Julia Lewald to come on board as story editors for the series. In January 1999, Fox finally gave the official go-ahead and Ron Myrick was hired to oversee the show's visual development.
In the series opening, Wonder Man's name is misspelled Wonderman.
