    These missions are in Avenger's Initiative (multiplayer) at the top of the Helicarrier map. You only start out with Level I and you have to complete each mission before the next one starts. They progress in difficulty, but scale to your power level, and enemies as you beat the ten waves required for each map.

    In the first two missions, you fight lots of regular sized enemies. In mission 3, you start getting the elite Adaptoids and Synthoids. In mission 4 and 5, it is almost exclusively the elite enemies and dreadbots.

    Does not have to be all in a row, can be done in a mix of solo and co-op. I beat the first two by myself one day and my brother hopped in for the last three the next.

    However, if you are having trouble unlocking, it might fix the progress if you play through all of them on the same character.
    Do not know if it is tied to individual characters but some people have got it to pop by doing them all on one character.

    Apostle92627Is it possible to beat challenges 4 and 5 by levelling up your character (character level) without increasing your power rating? Would enemies still get stronger or no?

    Edit: The answer was no, but I figured out how to cheese it anyway.

    There are two ways you can do this achievement:

    Cheese the Challenges IV and V using a low power level character:
    If you're struggling with this achievement as much as I was at a low power level, letting the other heroes do the work. It doesn't matter how many times your AI heroes get knocked out; you won't lose. You only lose if you get knocked out three times. If you're struggling to finish, try picking up a few gear pieces.

    Sure, it may take longer, but I just completed challenges IV and V this way with Captain America. If you're impatient, you can pick your spots, or even use your heroic abilities. That's what I did!

    Become overlevelled:
    Sure, we all know enemy power levels stay with your power level. However, if you don't mind waiting, in the Harm Challenge Room, enemy power levels max out at 100. If you take in an overlevelled hero it shouldn't be that hard. I tested this by taking Ms. Marvel (hero level 50, power level 119) into Challenge V, and while I struggled in certain parts (I'm bad at playing defense), I wasn't downed once. Now she's power level 134, and they're still power level 100.
