FULL VIDEO: ‘Avengers Training Initiative’ invites kids to HERO UP!
As part of the SUMMER OF HEROES at Disney California Adventure, you can take in a bunch of Superhero-sized entertainment including the fun little Avengers Training Initiative. Think about the Jedi Training Academy in Tomorrowland and you’ll get a sense for what’s going on here.
Join Special Agent Cabe, director of Avengers training and Tech Specialist Agent Crosby as they work together with Black Widow and Hawkeye from the Avengers to train new recruits.
Black Widow, also known as Agent Natasha Romanoff, is the commander of the training, demonstrating defensive combat techniques. We even get an intro and sign off by Tony Stark (in his Iron Man suit) who surprises young recruits with a video appearance from the Stark Expo at Hong Kong Disneyland.
Of course, it can’t be a Marvel moment with out something big going down and in this case it’s HYDRA!! Young Avengers learn defensive and attack maneuvers to defeat the villain Arnim Zola, who is known by Captain America fans to be from the evil HYDRA organization.
At the end of it all, recruits receive a special Avengers Training Initiative security clearance band upon completing the training program.

Gamora may prefer to stand back and observe, but everyone else is bound to get in the groove and show off their moves during this awesome rock ‘n’ roll bash!
- Super Hero Encounters – For the first time, citizens of Earth will come face-to-face with Groot, one of the Guardians of the Galaxy! You can also step up to meet the First Avenger, Captain America, along with everyone’s favorite web slinger, your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man.
