The game is segmented into four episodes, with the first on sale for iOS and Android for $6.99. The first episode is focused on the Incredible Hulk; subsequent episodes will feature Captain America, Iron Man, and Thor, though Marvel has yet to state which of the upcoming episodes will come out next.

In Avengers Initiative, players assume the role of a featured superhero and defeat supervillains like the Abomination and Wendigo, while levelling their character up with new abilities and stats in a similar style to the Infinity Blade series.

The game will be interconnected with the Marvel: Avengers Alliance RPG that was released on Facebook.

Honestly, 95% of the games I've played on Android sucks.

The only games I enjoyed is Final fantasy 3, World of Goo and Angry Bird Space

The rest of games I've played sucks, and many of them don't work well on touch screen controls

Too expensive for me to bother considering how many amazing games are out there. Of course, I'm a Marvel fan, so I'll just use that money towards more issues or whatever.

Wow. I love the Avengers! I'm sure this game will be best played on the superior Xbox 360. I can't wait!!

@buying1999 It's coming on phones, not on the Xbox 360. Can't you read? You give fanboys a bad name. And that's saying something.

@lolnation @buying1999 oh fanboys both of you stop it. & john carmack has made a killer app in a long time. so to quote him just makes you look silly. alsothe xbox is apparently not f-ing sh-t if it has done the most numbers month to month after the wii sells died off. and who said this is ever coming to consoles this is a phone & face book game.

$6.99 for an iPhone game? No thanks, there's too many free ones to be wasting $7 on.

This looks like it will be fun! I hope they don't f* it up. If it plays like the Batman one, I'll love it for sure.
