[show]This series, along with Spider-Man Unlimited, was commissioned by Fox in the wake of the success of Batman Beyond. In order to attempt to emulate "Batman Beyond", changes were made to the Avengers franchise as the series was set in the future. Ron Myrick explained that they were "setting the series about twenty-five years in the future" and that "New York City will be a mix of future and contemporary looks, sort of the way the city looked in the movie Blade Runner but not as dark". The Avengers were also featured wearing elaborate armor costumes when they went into battle. Myrick said "The armor will give them the capability to go into different environments like extreme heat or cold, or underwater, or outer space, and it'll enhance their abilities. The Avengers also featured an "A" on their costumes that was like a Star Trek comlink, where they could hit it and communicate with each other and the mansion's computer.

[show]The decision to pair Scarlet Witch and Wonder Man up as a couple was based upon the storyline then running in the Avengers comic in which Scarlet Witch (who in the comic had a long-standing relationship with Vision and who hated Wonder Man because of his stalker-esque obsession with her and his refusal to help restore Vision's mind after Vision had his mind erased, a decision that ultimately led to Vision dissolving his relationship with Wanda) resurrects Wonder Man to serve as her protector after an evil sorceress transforms the planet into a medival world under her control. During their time together, the two fall in love and become a couple.
- Goof (miscellaneous): In the series opening, Wonder Man's name is misspelled Wonderman.
