A huge roster in your hands!

Whichever heroic team you root for, you’ve got the power to handpick your own awesome team from a cast of characters from across the Marvel Universe. Marvel’s biggest players are here – each with their own special skills and moves – including Captain America, Iron Man, Thor, Star Lord, Rocket and Groot, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and more!

Playing to their strengths

There’s more to deciding which superpowered character will join your squad than simply going with your favourites. Take advantage of strategic elements that come into play when combining specific heroes and reap the rewards!

For example, teaming those that are part of a certain group can earn stat bonuses for all members – from the likes of the famous Avengers, to factions such as the Women of Marvel, the Web Slingers, or the Big Brains.

Experiment and extinguish

The customisation doesn’t end once you’ve assembled your squad. Enter the S.H.I.E.L.D. Lab to enhance your team’s special attacks, boosting them with a mixture of Ability Points (AP) and Ability Orbs that can be found and earned within levels.

And with ISO-8, the boosts and buffs don’t stop! This special power-up substance can be equipped to give your heroes a wide variety of effects, such as stat boosts, elemental enhancements, and increased drop-rates of items.

Power in numbers

Defeating enemies is all about working together! Activate team-based actions on your own, or buddy-up with other players to show how effective teamwork can be. Control a hero each and let the action ensue!

Team spirit

Some areas can only be accessed, or obstacles destroyed, when your heroes work together. With the Synergy mechanic, heroes become even stronger when they combine their abilities. Use this to your benefit to break walls, crates and forcefields to find hidden areas or items – and of course, in bouts of combat!

Unleash ultimate blows

Extreme Attacks (EX) are incredibly strong attacks that cover wide areas when a character’s Extreme gauge is full. They’re powerful on their own, but if any or all of the rest of the team also have full gauges, an Alliance Extreme (AX) can be activated. These potent attacks are capable of dealing huge amounts of damage!
