This is definitely the most painful of all the achievements to pick up in this game, if purely for a handful of challenges. If you've got a friend you can play through most of these challenges with it'll make life a helluva lot easier, but it is definitely possible to pull off solo as I just finished it off by myself just now. All the notes I'm adding below are under the assumption you're flying solo.

Some of the challenges are unlocked by completing various characters Heroic Feats, so you will need to complete a number of Heroic Feats before you get this achievement.

I used Thor for all of them, throwing his hammer and just using his Heroic Attack when things get way too hectic, as they will towards the end of the time limit.

Asteroid Field and Base Jump: These both play out just like their respective segments in Episodes 1 and 7. Just collect some gems as you fly through the stages and survive to the end of the level.

Galactus: Now this is made a lot harder than when you battle him in episode 8 because of the fact that you don't have an ally, and the fact that it only takes two hits to be KOed, and thus fail the challenge. The best way to handle Galactus is to stay in the centre of the screen for as long as possible as that gives you the best position to dodge both his swats (left and right) and his eye lasers (top and bottom). He will sometimes give you a vocal prompt on what he's about to do, so pay careful attention to that, but in the end you'll be able to visually see what he's about to do next. Just feed him until he's full and victory is once again yours.

Whack An Imp: I can tell you that this was by far the most frustrating of the challenges for me, if mainly because I used Thor for it. Thor seemingly doesn't have the ability to destroy incoming bombs or rocks being thrown at you, but Iron Man definitely does, so I would suggest using him for minimal frustration.

The best idea to get through this is to start in the centre of the screen, fly straight to the imp, fire, and move immediately back to the centre. That will give you more than enough time to line up the next imp before it fires for at least for the first minute. After a while you won't really have time to return to the centre as you'll just be constantly moving from imp to imp, but do continue to try to get back to the centre if you don't see the next imp. There are a couple occasions where you will get a mini break, which of course you can use to get back to centre.

Edit - JCKellner has passed on this even simpler solution to beating Whack An Imp. Thanks JCKellner.

"Blast-A-Thon Whack An Imp - another site suggested using Nova once the first Imp shows up, don't shoot it, but, shoot the things it throws out of the sky and once the clock is close to zero then kill the Imp. This lets you finish this challenge with only killing 1 Imp. Found this on in their guide."

Radar Riot and Earth's Orbit: These both play out just like their respective sections in episodes 4 and 9. Just head straight for every bug/missile as you see them and blast away until the time expires.

The tactics I used here were similar to what I used with Survival Mode but there are a couple specific tidbits to each as the idea of Defender is not only to survive the time limit, but to allow whatever you're defending to survive as well. In each case, I again used Thor.

S.H.I.E.L.D. Building Rooftop: Stand in the centre and just throw Thor's hammer at every doombot as they come, using his Heroic Attack when things get hectic. You do not need all 3 vents to remain intact, just as long as one is still intact at the end of the time limit.

Lost In The Negative Zone: Just stay next to the little robot and fire Thor's hammer at all the bugs that come your way. If they start to get too close to it, use your Heroic Attack. The robot has 4 units to repair so you will have to move with the robot 3 times throughout the challenge. If you somehow still have time remaining when the robot has completed repairs on the 4th unit, it will run away and it will basically turn into a survival mode stage from that point.

Battle Floats: Again, throwing hammers and Heroic Attacks is the ideal way to deal with this. You'll be defending 5 statues here. As the stage progresses, you will get prompts in the bottom right hand corner of the screen telling you whether the attacks will be concentrated on the left or right hand side. Follow said prompts when they pop up. Again, as per the S.H.I.E.L.D. Building Rooftop stage, only one statue needs to remain standing to complete this challenge.

Super Smash
All you need to do in each of these is just to destroy an object, and let the time limit run out.

Iron Man Robo Racing
Here you are required to beat the top score on every race. Only Track Mark I is unlocked to begin with, but as you beat each of the times, you'll progressively unlock Marks II through VI. Completing Track Mark VI with a faster time will also unlock the Robo Racer Achievement.

Hack Attack
Like Iron Man Robo Racing, you are required to beat the top score on each of the Circuits. Again, only Circuit I will be unlocked to begin with, but as you beat each of the times, you'll progressively unlock Circuits II through VI. Completing Circuit VI with a faster time will also unlock the Elite Hack Master Achievement.

Once they've all been completed, you should have Challenge Master :)
