GamesBeat's Giancarlo Valdes: Avengers Initiative marks a new era of games based on Marvel Comics’ iconic brand of superheroes. Taking place in the same universe as the Avengers Alliance Facebook title, the episodic mobile series is a part of the company’s aggressive “push for quality.”

Unfortunately, not even the green-skinned hero is big enough to save this first chapter from mediocrity.
Just don’t tell him I said that.
