Star-Lord, Gamora, Rocket Raccoon, Groot and Drax Reimagined as Students in a Brand New Limited Time Update for TinyCo’s Smash Hit Mobile Title. Today, TinyCo and Marvel have announced the very first limited time in-game event for their recently launched MARVEL Avengers Academy mobile game, starting on April 1. MARVEL Avengers Academy is available to download for free on the App Store® and Google Play™. Featuring a fresh Avengers universe, which finds prominent Marvel Super Heroes and Super Villains in their college years, MARVEL Avengers Academy welcomes the famously beloved Guardians of the Galaxy team, reimagined as students, to campus! After escaping the villainous wrath of Ronan, the
One of the titles announced at Marvel’s Cup O’ Joe Panel was Young Avengers: After Party, a two-issue jam comic which will see Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie welcome in a number of other creators for some stories and dancing. For a pic of the covers and names of the creators, take the jump.
Or – “I Am Going To Miss This Book…” Of all the things to launch out of Dark Reign, I think Avengers Academy was my favorite, featuring an interesting array of characters (albeit all with really boring costumes) and a premise that worked. Even the use of Avengers with their own history of problems (Giant-Man, Tigra, Justice, Speedball and Quicksilver are like a laundry list of bad decisions) was compelling, but things in the Marvel Universe change with speed and ferocity, with a new day dawning on the Avengers Academy.

Or – “In My Head, Thor Talks Somewhat Like The Swedish Chef…” Chosen by the Green Goblin for their destructive potential, the kids of Avengers Academy seem determined to live up (or is that down) to expectations. After attacking the Hood in revenge for Brian Bendis’ writing, one of them has brought a cosmic-level menace down on their heads with a single thoughtless act. Good thing Hank Pym has friends…
Family reunions can be a drag, especially when your father may be a guy who has incorporated the fighting styles of everyone he’s ever witnessed in action. But what if you seem to share this skill set? Perhaps it’s time to go Maury Povich on his #@@ and determine if Taskmaster *IS* the father! The DNA tests show…ah, take the jump already!
