- One for the agent in Chapter 3, Mission 5. Nick Fury himself has this to say:
''I have to tell you, Agent. You get shot down in Doom's back yard, and come out with Vulture and Sandman as trophies. Let me step out of my formal Director's role long enough to say: That was flat-out badass."
- The increasing number of niche and obscure characters (although some of the Fan Dumb still waiting for 'Silver Surfer' might disagree) playable. This game is seriously rivalling Super Hero Squad Online in its roster size and variety. It features the following characters in their first playable appearance in any video game: Ares, Black Bolt, Captain Britain, Constrictor, Daimon Hellstrom, Fantomex, Hercules, Magik, Mockingbird, Nico Minoru, Omega Sentinel, Rescue, Satana, Shatterstar, Sif, Thane, Thundra and Union Jack. It also includes many other heroes with a few playable instances.
- Heck, as part of the Infinity Spec Ops tying into the Marvel miniseries of the same name, Thane actually made his official named debut in M:AA.
- Spitfire's addition is a double moment of awesome, as it not only lets us play as Falsworth's sister and one of Cap's greatest wartime allies, but it also seems to hint that some of of The Invaders are going to be added too!note
- Any time you do a Three Bird on Chapter 12. The missions - aside from the Premium one - consist of nothing but mini bosses and bosses. No deploy, no threats, just villains for you to duke it out.
- Bonus badass points if you manage to get "Perfection" when doing this. Even more badass points if you accomplish it on Challenge Mode (a mode where enemies are five levels above you).
- Consider all the work the Avengers have done since the Pulse. They stopped Loki from turning New York to stone, quelled at least 3 different Mutant riots (and three different random Sentinel attacks), stopped Mystique from turning Manhattan into a mutant island, saved the UN from evil knockoff Avengers, rescued more than one of their own from evil, and of course, fought off scores of villains.
- Given the difficulty of Blackheart, the latest Spec Ops Group Boss, just figuring out a way to survive his onslaught while dealing considerable damage is quite a feat. Even more so if you manage to destroy him during your fight.
- Yes, while it might be just gameplay, it's still awesome that Ares can afflict Thanos of all people with 'Broken Will'.
- A meta one for Deadpool that may also be CMOF, he is the best choice Scrapper for dealing with Thanos in most of his forms (save Bruiser for obvious reasons) and even more so since his recent buff, considering their shared romantic history with Death makes it even better.
- An Offscreen Moment of Awesome for Captain Britain in the Thor 2 SO where he is implied to have fought off Kurse, the then group boss, on his own.
- Spec Ops 16. Just Spec Ops 16: the long-awaited debut of Iceman. The four horsemen alternate costumes. The final fight against Apocalypse.
- Spec Ops 17. The Badass Normal Captain America on a Roaring Rampageof Revenge against the Red Skull with a Reality Warper Cosmic Cube. For bonus points, you have an option to make this fight 1 on 1, and Cap can still take him down.
- Season 2 Chapter 6 Mission 4: Ghost Rider has Badass Boast to Mephisto, followed with Shut Up, Hannibal!:
Ghost Rider: I stopped being your pawn a long time ago, Mephisto. Any last words before I send you back to hell?
Mephisto: Such impatience! If only you took the time to understand our plan in its entirety.
Ghost Rider: That's something you never understood about me, Mephisto. I don't want to understand you. All I want is to get back what's mine and avenge what you did to me.
- Season 2 Chapter 1 Mission 2: Wolverine's reply to Sabretooth who insists they are Not So Different.
Wolverine: I'm a killer. You're a murderer. If you can't tell the difference, that's part of your problem.
- The Mandarin is starting to get some scary badass points. He was The Man Behind the Man for quite some time, providing funding for other villains like Savin or Crimson Dynamo, but then in Season 2 chapter 9, he went into the open, DESTOYING an entire universe for the salvation of this one. For that matter, thanks to his 10 rings, he is EVERY class. Which means he has all their weaknesses, but also all their strengths to compensate for this.
- Then in the next chapter, while the avengers are battling him in Madripoor, he has some of his forces destroy Avengers Tower. No villain before this managed to strike such a blow against the Avengers.
