Marvel Avengers Academy casts you as your favorite superheroes
Captain America: Civil War is still months away, but if you’re looking for your next comic-book fix, you’re in luck: Avengers Academy just went live. It’s a mobile app that lets you guide your favorite characters through the treacherous landscape of college life.
The game is the brainchild of TinyCo, which has teamed up with Marvel to create an adventure/sim title that follows the stories of your favorite super heroes before they were so super. Unlock younger versions of the Avengers as they are just discovering their superpowers. In this game, you’ll assist them not only in the ‘super’ aspects of their lives, but also in the everyday matters such as managing their social and dating lives. Depending on the decisions you make, the school will grow and change around you.
From all appearances, this seems to be a highly detailed sim game. Its Marvel affiliations are sure to garner a wide usership, so if you want to get in on the action early, now is the time to act. A light-hearted approach to the Avenger universe is a welcome respite from the grit of recent films, and although this game isn’t canon, it certainly looks fun.
Marvel Avengers Academy is free to play on both Android and iOS, but it comes with some optional in-app purchases. If you want to get in on the action, click the button below to download it from the Google Play Store. Once you’ve given it a whirl, let us know what you think of it in the comments!
