Marvel's most popular superhero team is starring in a new game, but instead of fighting Thanos, Marvel Avengers Academy finds them taking on something far scarier: high school.

Marvel Avengers Academy is being developed for iOS and Android devices for a first quarter 2016 release. Produced by Marvel Entertainment and TinyCo, the studio behind Family Guy: The Quest for Stuff, the free-to-play title lets you play as a teenage versions of the world's mightiest heroes.

According to a press release, players will serve as guardians to the high schooler superheroes, who deal with not only their powers but also the "multifarious aspects of campus drama." Naturally, this includes dating — with characters like Loki as your possible romantic options — as well as navigating cliques and other trials most survivors of the teenage years try to forget.

The game will let you outfit your heroes, while also giving you the option to upgrade their campus and super abilities.

Marvel Avengers Academy's first teaser, which you can check out above, hints at what the game's superhero school will look like and features quick references that Avengers fans will recognize.
