After all, it was quite obvious that it is a series that blatantly mixes two things that are popular among Japanese kids: The Avengers and Pokémon.While not the first Marvel superhero anime series, Disk Wars is the first one aimed at a younger audience. It stars Avengers Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk, Thor, and Wasp. The five—along with a slew of other heroes and villains—are trapped in pocket dimension prison units (the titular “disks”) by Loki's machinations. These prison units, developed by Tony Stark and Peter Parker, are basically Pokéballs and only allow the heroes and villains to be released for a short amount of time—and only by certain people who have the proper biometric data. The rest of the time, the captured individuals appear as nothing more than mini-holograms projected by their disks.
