Both games had versions released on the UsefulNotes/{{P|layStation2}}S2, UsefulNotes/{{P|layStation3}}S3, Xbox 360, Nintendo UsefulNotes/{{Wii}}, UsefulNotes/NintendoDS, and {{P|layStationPortable}}SP. All versions of MUA 1 were essentially the exact same game apart from graphics and exclusive characters (which is proven by the PC port, which allowed for switching between both sets of graphics on the fly as well as {{game mod}}ding). The differences between versions of ''MUA 2'' are more drastic; the Xbox 360 and [=PS3=] version was made from scratch whereas the Wii, [=PS2=], and [=PSP=] version is more or less a MissionPackSequel to ''MUA 1''.

''Marvel Ultimate Alliance'' is an Action RPG series published by {{Creator/Activision}} and developed by Raven Software and Vicarious Visions, starring many of Marvel's most popular {{superhero}}es and {{supervillain}}s. A spiritual successor of sorts to the ''VideoGame/XMenLegends'' series (arguably a sequel to the second, but the first is in a continuity of its own), which was also developed by Raven. The first one was released in 2006 and took you through a tour of the MarvelUniverse trying to stop Doctor Doom and his [[LegionOfDoom Masters of Evil]].

* BadassBookworm[=/=]GeniusBruiser: The Think Tank team bonus (The Hulk, Green Goblin, Mr. Fantastic, Spider-Man, or Iron Man) and the Master Minds (Mr. Fantastic, Nick Fury, Iron Man, Spider-Man).
** For that matter, Mr. Fantastic in general. His Fantastic Fists boost is practically a GameBreaker. When fully leveled up, it causes him to get critical hits almost 100% of the time. It's only supposed to affect his basic melee attacks, but it's glitched so that it affects ''all'' of his attacks. It can also combine with other damage multipliers, creating some hilariously short boss battles (i.e. the boss is KO'd before the attack animations finish).

* TheCameo: In both games, as expected. Special mention to the cutscene that plays [[spoiler: prior to the final mission, that explains what has happened while the playable characters were off-planet - The remaining heroes of Earth have mounted an offense against Dr Doom, but most have fallen and only Cyclops & a heavily mutilated Colossus are definitely still alive. Depicted in this scene are Charles Xavier, {{Magneto}}, Gambit, Shadowcat, Emma Frost, the aforementioned Colossus & Cyclops, and the Hulk (Who is covered by shadow, except for his feet, due to licensing issues preventing the character being included in the main game).]]
** Jubilee can be seen as one of the mutants waiting in line to receive the cure for the Legacy Virus in one of the chooseable ending stills (provided that you saved the computer terminal on the Omega Base).
** Thanos also appears in the chooseable ending stills, whether or not he takes over the world all depends on if you freed Odin back at Castle Doom.

* CompositeCharacter: As with ''VideoGame/XMenLegends'', the first game more or less based every character on their classic MarvelUniverse selves, but most of the playable characters are in the UltimateMarvel costumes for defaults (with Spider-Man and Daredevil, it really didn't matter since they look the same in either universe) though a few like Nick Fury and Deadpool have their classic looks as default and their Ultimate costumes for alternate costumes. The second game drops this and just has everyone in their classic Marvel Universe threads for their default costumes, though some do have their Ultimate looks as alternate costumes.

* ContractualBossImmunity / KungFuProofMook: Bosses are immune to stun, knockdown, and grabbing. Certain mooks are also immune to some of these, though stunning usually works.
** Averted with the Tinkerer in the sequel. Most every other boss is immune to Hulk's tackle attack but the Tinkerer isn't, leading to the hilarious image of a green muscle-bound monster tackling and punching out a feeble old man with no powers.

* CuttingOffTheBranches: That fact that Jean Grey is a playable character in the sequel, means Nightcrawler was the canonical sacrifice in the first game. This ultimately means the X-men will eventually disband, and Mystique will eventually murder Professor X. Also considering Senator Kelly, didn't jump on the registration bandwagon, means he was saved. Furthermore, since the West Coast of America wasn't destroyed by an asteroid, it's presumed that Lilandra was also saved.
** Or, alternatively, Jean Grey was the sacrifice but, as it said in the credits, she was revived as the Phoenix to take vengeance upon the people who chose her death - though maybe they were able to help her suppress the Phoenix's personality and bring Jean Grey back as herself. Supported in that the X-Men do not appear to be officially disbanded.

* KarmaHoudini: A fair bit of the second game is Reed Richards' fault, as his plan to mind control mass amounts of villains [[spoiler:ends up becoming too widespread for him to control and the nanites start linking minds instead of subjugating them, ending in them attempting to assimilate the whole world]]. Plus, of course, the whole "[[MassHypnosis mass mind control]]" bit in the first place. Nobody calls him out on this but Sue Storm if you get a special conversation with him.
