What is the Avengers Initiative?

The Avengers Initiative is a Marvel Comics fan club dedicated to celebrating the Marvel Universe through costuming. The Avengers is an all-volunteer organization formed for the purpose of bringing together costume enthusiasts under a collective identity within which to operate. The Avengers seeks to promote interest in Marvel Comics through the building and wearing of quality costumes, and to facilitate the use of these costumes for Marvel Comics-related events as well as contributions to the local community through costumed charity and volunteer work.

What can the Avengers Initiative do for me?

There is nothing like a group of superheroes or villains to bring attention to an event. Unlike individual entertainers, the Avengers Initiative works as a group to create a real- life comic book experience with wide array of professional-grade costumes and props. Our group’s standards help to ensure a high level of professionalism in both actions and appearance for quality events.

Does the Avengers Initiative charge for appearances?

While we do not charge a fee for appearances (public or private), we encourage donations made to your favorite charity in the name of the Avengers Initiative. If you do not have a charity of choice, our group would gladly provide a list of some that we support. Examples include Ronald McDonald House, Make-A-Wish Foundation and Shriners Hospitals for Children.

Is the Avengers Initiative a part of marvel or Disney?

The Avengers Initiative recognizes it holds no claim over the costumes and characters it portrays. Our organization acknowledges and respects that these characters are owned by Marvel Entertainment and its parent company, Disney. The members of the Avengers Initiative acknowledge and accept that while in costume, we represent the Marvel Entertainment brand and will do so professionally and responsibly at all times.
