Events are large-scale activities that happen almost constantly in Avengers Academy. Each one is around for a limited time (typically four weeks) and allows players to gain access to limited-time characters, outfits, buildings, and decorations. There are special rules for these events, although normally they involve collecting new "event items" in order to complete the event. These events typically require the characters first added to the Academy (Iron Man, Wasp, Loki, Black Widow, Falcon, Enchantress). In situations where an event requires a later character (e.g., the Civil War Event and Captain America), a character that can be unlocked earlier might be subbed in by the game's code. You must be level 6 and have built Van Dyne's in order to participate in events.
