Black Panther

"To challenge a king is to face the might of his people!"
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mvciblackpanther_8.png
"Today, we fought as one, for the glory of Wakanda!"
Debut: Fantastic Four #52 (July 1966)

The latest in a long line of rulers in the African nation of Wakanda, T'Challa follows in his father's footsteps as the warrior king known as the Black Panther, protecting Wakanda and the world from those who seek to rule it. When the worlds merged, his nation was joined with the desert city of Val Harbar. T'Challa has taken one of the city's top monster hunters as an assistant, but his will to defend his changed kingdom has not wavered.
  • Animal Motif: Styles his costume and fighting style after the big cat whose name he shares.
  • Badass Cape: Whether or not he wears one in comics and other media varies, and his appearances in the trailers depict him with one. His playable appearance (see picture) doesn't have one, as he takes it off during his intro animation.
  • Downloadable Content: He can be downloaded in the first batch of DLC.
  • Expy: In general, he fills the same niche as the now absent Wolverine (a Marvel character who fights mainly with his claws). Gameplay-wise, he's been described as playing like a mix between Sabretooth and X-23, though he does have his fair share of unique moves as well.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: He wears a black panther costume and has sharp claws, but he is a superhero and a member of the Avengers.
  • Death from Above: His Sudden Death hyper combo involves him leaping high above the opponent and then falling onto them claw-first, doing multiple hits.
  • Heroic Neutral: He initially refused to relinquish the Time Stone, since it was keeping Valkanda safe. After that became moot (as Ultron Drones invade the place), he willingly gave it up for the sake of the greater good.
  • Lag Cancel: He can cancel many of his specials into a special dash that can bring him back to the ground or to the wall (his Wall Cling move). He can also cancel his Chain of Hunting followup into Predator Arts special.
  • Role Reprisal: From The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: He'll do anything to protect his home, even when it's been merged into "Valkanda".
  • Shoryuken: He has one for a special move called Panther Bite, that he can cancel into his wall jump.
  • Three Strike Combo: One of his specials, Chain of Hunting, is a 3-strike "rekka" move that has variable paths. He might decide to just do 3 slashes on the ground or leap to the air for the second strike. Also, his Predator Arts is a leaping 2 hit clawing and kick attack that can be continued into a third move.
  • Wall Jump: He jumps off the wall for some of his moves, including one of his hypers. He can also wall cling, then wall jump to the ground, then immediately jump to the other wall and cling there, and back again.
  • Wolverine Claws: Fights with lots of clawing attacks.

Debut: Tales of Suspense #52 (April 1964)
Voiced By: Laura Bailey

Natasha Romanova was a spy and assassin for the Soviet Union: brainwashed, trained since childhood, and genetically augmented to increase her physical abilities while slowing her aging. Once an enemy of Iron Man, she would later defect to the United States and become a member of the Avengers alongside her ally and lover Hawkeye.
  • Downloadable Content: She can be downloaded in the first batch of DLC.
  • Expy: She's considered Infinite's equivalent to C. Viper from the previous game, due to both characters having a spy motif, as well as their movesets and play-styles having high skill-ceilings.
  • First-Name Basis: In the context of shouting his name when a character switch is made, Widow is the only character who refers to Winter Soldier by his first name, James (Captain America calls him "Bucky"). This is a reference to the fact that they were lovers in the comics.
  • Fragile Speedster: Very agile with a special jump move, but has low health.
  • Grapple Move: She has a flexible grab special that she can use from the ground/air to the ground/air that ends in Murderous Thighs. One of her hypers is a more powerful variant of it.
  • Lawman Baton: She uses 2 shock batons in some of her specials.
  • Power Fist: She comes armed with 2 multi-functional gauntlets, which can be used to throw Trick Bombs, shock the opponent with electricity, or throw out a Grappling-Hook Pistol.
  • Role Reprisal: From Avengers, Assemble!
  • Spy Catsuit: She wears her high-tech suit with Tron Lines from the Age of Ultron movie.
  • Status Ailment: Some of her specials put her opponent in a "electrified" state, which will make them take more damage (and cause crumple/blow them to the wall) from her shock gauntlet special.
  • Trick Bomb: She can throw various kind of bombs onto the opponent, which ranges from floating electric bombs, to paralyzing gas bombs, to a Sticky Bomb that detonates after a few seconds.

"For people, for justice, I will fight!"
Debut: Captain America Comics #1 (March 1941)
Voiced by: Brian Bloom

The sole recipient of the Super Soldier Serum, Steve Rogers' deep love for his country and his unparalleled sense of justice make him one of the most respected heroes today. He has also been the long-time leader of the Avengers, a group dedicated to keeping the world safe from harm.
  • Big Good: The leader of the Avengers and the leader of the heroes fighting against Ultron.
  • Captain Patriotic: The Trope Maker.
  • Captain Superhero: The most famous example, and he does have the rank of U.S. Army Captain. He's also good at commanding and rousing his teammates.
  • Costume Evolution: Previous games straight-lifted his suit from the comics. Infinite uses a suit that combines elements from the comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
  • Counter Attack: He gains a new move with his shield where he counters either ground or air attacks.
  • Fights Like a Normal: His Super Soldier Serum gave him peak human physical ability, but he mostly relies on good ol' hand-to-hand combat (he's among the best in the world, even) and his shield. Justified by the very nature of the serum.
  • Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Wields a nigh-indestructible vibranium shield. Unfortunately, the same can't be said for his opponents...
  • Primary-Color Champion: As expected of a superhero whose uniform is based on the American flag.
  • Role Reprisal: Like in the last game, from The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes!.
  • Shield Bash: His main way of fighting alongside his hand-to-hand techniques, including his specials Charging Star, Stars and Stripes and their Hyper Combo variants.
  • Shotoclone: Essentially the Marvel equivalent to Ryu in this regard.
  • Throwing Your Shield Always Works: His Shield Slash attack is him throwing his shield forward, which then flies back towards him and hits the foe a second time. He also gains the new Trick Shield move where he throws it in a different trajectory to hit the enemy In the Back. In the story mode, X got to try doing it once, and it works against several Ultron-Sigma's drones. Gets a variant in his new Level 3 hyper (Unyielding Justice) where he also kicks it towards his foe before ending it with a powerful Stars and Stripes.
  • Wearing a Flag on Your Head: Because it bears repeating, his uniform is based on the American flag.

"The past is not important, only the future."
Debut: Marvel Super-Heroes #13 (March 1968)
Voiced by: Grey DeLisle

Air Force officer Carol Danvers was hit by a Kree Psyche-Magnetron explosion that granted her the alien's powers, transforming her into Ms. Marvel. However, an encounter with the then-mutant criminal Rogue robbed her of these powers and a space-faring mission with the X-Men granted her new energy-based powers. She later changed her name to Captain Marvel in honor of the original Captain Mar-Vell.
  • Alternate Company Equivalent: To DC Comics' Supergirl, and while both characters have admittedly been compared to each other for a long time by now, Captain Marvel's inclusion in Infinite can be seen as a response to Supergirl's inclusion in Injustice 2.
  • Ascended Extra: Was one of the Heroes and Heralds Mode cards in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 under her original name of Ms. Marvel.
  • Captain Superhero: Because Captain America can't have all the fun.
  • Cast from Hit Points: Her Binary Ignition hyper will maker her periodically lose small amounts of HP as long as it's active.
  • Cool Mask: When she turns Binary, she gains a mask that covers her eyes and forehead.
  • Deadly Lunge: One of her special moves, Blitz Blow is her flying towards a direction to punch her foe.
  • Flying Brick: Flight? Check. Super-strength? Check. Also a potent Flying Firepower with her Binary powers.
  • Glowing Eyes: When "going Binary," along with her hair.
  • Grapple Move: She has two specials like this, one (Strike Flurry) where she dashes first towards her foe (that is blockable) and then either do a set of punches and kicks or grab the enemy and throw them to the opposite wall, and the other, Takeoff (that is unblockable) where she grabs the foe and then uppercuts them up.
  • Hand Blast: One of her specials and two of her hypers have her shoot a big beam from her hands.
  • Leotard of Power: Her DLC alt puts her back in her Ms. Marvel costume from the '70s.
  • Power Floats: Just hovers a bit above ground instead of standing.
  • Power Glows: Outside from the glow from Infinity Stones, her body, eyes and hair glow when she goes Binary. Not to mention several of his special attacks making her limbs glow.

Debut: Strange Tales #126 (November 1964)
Voiced By: Phil LaMarr

The nemesis of Doctor Strange, Dormammu is an energy being and one of the most wicked and powerful native of the "Dark Dimension". Wishing nothing less than to conquer all of life and the afterlife, he aims to rewrite the laws of reality so all would suffer for his glory.
  • Arch-Enemy: For Doctor Strange.
  • Blown Across the Room: His Dark Matter unique normal has him shooting a small projectile forward that blows the enemy towards the wall.
  • Containment Field: His Level 3 hyper wraps the enemy in one, which Dormammu then shrinks and then pops with his fingers.
  • Death from Above: Some of his Liberation variants summon either a cluster of small meteors or a huge meteor that splits into flaming rocks.
  • Dimension Lord: The depraved despot of Dark Dimension.
  • Eldritch Abomination: He's an ancient, immortal being from another dimension who wants power all beings, both living and in the afterlife.

  • Long-Range Fighter: Many of his moves fill different part of the screen with phenomena.

  • Playing with Fire: Wields the Flames of the Faltine.

Debut: Marvel Spotlight #5 (August 1972)
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

Johnny Blaze was a professional stuntman who made a deal with Mephisto to save his ailing father from cancer in exchange for his immortal soul. When his father died in a stunt gone wrong, Blaze realized he made a grave mistake and turned back on his deal. In revenge, Mephisto bound Blaze's soul to a demon's, transforming him into the Spirit of Vengeance, Ghost Rider. With his newfound control over hellfire, Blaze set about using his powers to protect the innocent and punish the wicked.
  • Badass Biker: He always shows up to a fight riding his motorcycle.
  • Breath Weapon: His Hellfire attack has him spit a mid-range blast of hellfire.
  • Chain Pain: Uses his chains like a whip, giving him an impressive attack range.
  • Cool Bike: As always, Mr. Blaze comes equipped with his beloved flaming chopper, the Hell Cycle.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Ghost Rider is a spirit of vengeance in black leather and has a flaming skull for a head, but he hunts down the truly guilty.
  • Deadly Gaze: His Penance Stare is a supernatural gaze that will make his victim's soul be tortured for his/her sins.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Canonically speaking, his Penance Stare burns the sins inside someone's soul. In this game, it can work equally on Ultron or Sigma - soulless robots - as well as everyone else.
  • Grapple Move: He has multiple blockable grabs with his chain, with one of them bringing the opponent close to him. Also has an unlockable grab for his Level 3 hyper, Penance Stare.
  • Hell-Bent for Leather: Being a typical biker, he wears full black leather getup.
  • Immune to Flinching: His "Spirit of Vengeance" Hyper Combo (where he gets on his motorcycle and rides towards his opponent) gained this property in this game.
  • '90s Anti-Hero: A classic one, with a vicious biker getup, Skull for a Head and infernal theme, not to mention a tough attitude.
  • Noodle Incident: He must've believed that everyone - no matter how just - have sinned, since, outside of Gameplay and Story Segregation, it's the only reason his Penance Stare can even work on everyone.
  • Not Distracted by the Sexy: He pays no mind to a flirtatious Morrigan when the two encounter each other in the Dark Kingdom. Justified because, as Johnny himself once pointed out in the comics, he lacks "the goods" (and thus, the mentality) when in GR mode...
  • Playing with Fire: Hell Fire, to be specific.
  • Role Reprisal: From Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H..
  • Skull for a Head: As a result of being bonded to the demon Zarathos, and later a Spirit of Vengeance, Blaze has a flaming skull for a head in his demonic form.
  • Spam Attack: He has a new move, Seventh Circle - Punishment, where he whips multiple times with his chain. He can continue it with a flaming punch that hammers the foe to the ground or knock them towards the wall.
  • Spin Attack: His Hellfire Maelstrom hyper has him spinning his flaming chain above his head before slamming it down in front of him.
  • Spikes of Villainy: Downplayed. Despite having multiple spikes on his clothing, he's a good guy, although a rather mean and scary one.

After realizing the error of his ways, Barton was accepted into the Avengers to make up for his past deeds and has remained a stalwart member since.
  • Badass Normal: In comparison to his fellow Avengers, he has no super powers or super serum; he's just that damn good of an archer.

  • The Straight and Arrow Path: He's an archery-themed superhero.

Debut: The Incredible Hulk #1 (May 1962)
Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

Dr. Bruce Banner was a noted gamma-related scientist testing a special Gamma Bomb out in the desert when a young Rick Jones wandered out into the testing site. Banner saved Rick from the bomb, but was caught in the explosion. The gamma radiation transformed Banner, giving life to his repressed anger and helplessness as the rampaging monstrosity known as the Hulk. Though well-regarded as an ally, the Hulk's unpredictable nature makes it hard to figure out if he will be an ally or an obstacle.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: His Wave 1 alternate costume is of Joe Fixit, who dons a Nice Hat as well.
  • Charged Attack: One of his unique normals, Impact Punch, can be charged for more damage.
  • Dishing Out Dirt: He doesn't exactly have the ability to manipulate earth, but he can do it with his sheer power.
  • Death from Above: His Gamma Crush Hyper Combo, where he leaps up high and then brings a meteor down with him to smash his opponent with. He does something similar to finish off Dah'ren Mohran.
  • Foe-Tossing Charge: His Gamma Charge special.
  • Grapple Move: His Gamma Tornado special has him grab the opponent, then spinning their body with his arm before throwing them backwards.
  • Ground Pound: His Gamma Quake Hyper is reworked: instead of summoning rocks from above, he smashes the ground and causes lava to erupt from beneath the enemy.
  • Heroic Build: Exaggerated. Those muscles aren't just for show.
  • Hulk Speak: As always.
  • Lightning Bruiser: He may not have the grace or the agility of the other characters but the Hulk moves like a bullet train and hits like a freight train.
  • The Nicknamer: He calls his teammate using a nickname, depending on who they are. In a step up from his last appearance, he has nicknames for everybody. For example, Ryu is "Headband", Chun-Li is "Kick Girl", X is "Puny Metal Man", Chris is "Rock Puncher", Doctor Strange is "Dumb Magician", etc. The closest he gets to calling someone normally is using "Cap" for Captain America and "Panther" for Black Panther.
  • Role Reprisal: Though, is anyone really surprised by Tatasciore coming back at this point?
  • Shapeshifter Mode Lock: Banner has been stuck as the Hulk for most of the story.
  • Shoryuken: A variant of his Gamma Charge goes upwards as an anti-air attack.
  • Super Rug-Pull: He still has his Gamma Wave special and Gamma Tsunami Hyper.
  • Unskilled, but Strong: All of his attacks are rough-looking but pack a lot of punch.
  • Wall Jump: A trait usually reserved for nimbler characters like Hiryu, X, and Chun-Li. Hulk can now use his powerful legs to rebound off the wall and propel himself forward in the air, catching opponents by surprise.

Debut (Rocket): Marvel Preview #7 (Summer 1976)
Debut (Groot): Tales to Astonish #13 (November 1960)
Voiced by (Rocket): Trevor Devall
Voiced by (Groot): Kevin Michael Richardson

A denizen of the mysterious and crazy Halfworld, Rocket gained his first taste of really crazy adventures when the Hulk was accidentally teleported there. After many oddball adventures and encounters with various alien races, Rocket has cooled his heels with the ever-crazy Guardians of the Galaxy alongside his best friend, the plant-like Groot.
  • Art Shift: He now uses his MCU appearance rather than his comic book appearance.
  • Assist Character: Several of his attacks calls out Groot to pummel his enemy, including his new Level 3 hyper.
  • Bash Brothers: With Groot, who appears in several of Rocket's attacks.
  • BFG: He ends 2 of his hypers with one.
  • Brooklyn Rage: Rocket has ditched his British accent from MvC3 in exchange for a Brooklyn accent like his MCU counterpart.
  • Catch-Phrase: For better or worse, his recent "Blam! Murdered ya!" catch phrase has made it into his battle cries. (During a single-fire Spitfire.)
  • Dash Attack: His Wild Ripper Special where dashes forward with his Rocket Boots to tackle his enemy.
  • Fast Tunnelling: His Tunnel Rat special where he quickly digs underground to avoid attacks.
  • Gatling Good: One of his hypers coming from the third game is him firing away with a gatling gun, ending with an energy cannon.
  • Ground Punch: One of Groot's moves is him smashing the ground with his fists.
  • Guns Akimbo: Dante momentarily lends him both Ebony and Ivory in the Story Mode.
  • Gun Nut: He pretty much squees over Mega Man X's Arm Cannon:
    Rocket: (patting X's arm) What's the biggest thing you've ever killed with that bad boy, huh?
    • He also pretty much becomes gleeful when he asks Dante to lend him Ebony and Ivory:
    Rocket (after being given the guns): Ebony, Ivory? Care to dance? (Starts blasting away with them, Guns Akimbo).
  • Innocently Insensitive: Asks the above of X, a Martial Pacifist. Of course, he likely wouldn't care that X was offended.
  • The Lancer: Acts as one to X during their brief partnering on the mission to Knowmoon.
  • The Paralyzer: One of his trap specials, as well as his new Spitspark special (where he shoots an electric projectile with a Hand Cannon) can paralyze his foes, making them susceptible for further attacks; also making a good way to take time to summon Groot.
  • Pintsized Powerhouse: a small, cute raccoon who's more powerful than he looks and hates to be called "cute".
  • Properly Paranoid: He was the one who was most vocally against letting Thanos free from his jail cell in order to help find the remaining Infinity Stones. Thanos would eventually betray the heroes once he learned he was being used by Death, proving Rocket's hesitation to be justified; although downplayed in that Thanos ultimately didn't hinder the heroes' attempts at battling Ultron Sigma despite what he did.
  • Role Reprisal: From the Marvel Universe shows (albeit Rocket's third voice actor and Groot's second).
  • Rubber Man: Groot is able to stretch his arms to attack.
  • Trap Master: He retains his trapping ability from the third game, although he only has 3 traps now: Angel Gift (does multiple hits), Grab Bag (stuns enemy in place), and the hyper combo Mad Hopper (a more powerful Grab Bag).
  • Videogame Dashing: His Rocket Skates move, which moves him faster than other characters' dashes (bar Zero's Hienkyaku).
  • Your Approval Fills Me with Shame: There's nothing Rocket has more appreciation for than some high-grade toys, and the X-Buster is a very, very nice toy, indeed. That being said, its owner clearly does not care for Rocket's first resort of violence. And no, Rocket, he still won't let you borrow it.

Spider-Man

"You wanna take us on? My condolences."

"All in a day's work for your friendly neighborhood Spider-Man!"
Debut: Amazing Fantasy #15 (August 1962)
Voiced By: Robbie Daymond

Bitten by a radioactive spider at a science experiment, Peter Parker initially used his Spider powers and bright costume to be a showman. However, when his beloved Uncle Ben is murdered by a crook he failed to catch, Peter learned that With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility, becoming the Amazing Spider-Man.
  • All Webbed Up: His Web Ball attack causes this. His Maximum Spider hyper also slowly covers his enemy in webs before his final attack.
  • Assist Character: The Green Goblin (who is notably unseen) accidentally helps Spider-Man by throwing several pumpkin bombs at Spider-Man as part of his Level 3 Hyper Combo, only for Spidey to redirect them at the opponent.
  • Back from the Dead: This version of Spider-Man was last seen defeated at the hands of Morlun during the Spider Verse crossover. As Infinite is a pseudo-reboot of the series, it gives Capcom an out to bring him back to life.
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: His winpose has him shooting a web close to the screen.
  • Building Swing: A staple of his, which is present in his air dash and his trademark Web Swing special.
  • Criss-Cross Attack: His usual Maximum Spider, where he does a Diving Kick on his opponent multiple times from multiple angles while covering them in webs.
  • Fragile Speedster: He's very agile with multiple air movements but has low health.
  • Grapple Move: 2 of them - Web Throw, a blockable long range throw, and Ultimate Web Throw, an unblockable hyper throw.
  • In-Series Nickname: When Iron Man calls him out, he's addressed as Underoos.
  • The Paralyzer: His Web Ball special stops the opponent in place.
  • Punched Across the Room: His new Spider Cannon has him doing a dropkick forward that launches enemy far back to the wall.
  • Role Reprisal: From Marvel's Spider-Man.
  • Shotoclone: Like in the other Capcom vs. Whatever games he was in, his Web Ball, Spider Sting, and Web Swing specials return.
  • Talking Is a Free Action: When he performs "Maximum Spider", he doesn't always cry out "MAXIMUM SPIDER!" Instead, he sometimes rambles on about how strong his webbing is. In general, Spidey's Motor Mouth tendencies have skyrocketed a lot in comparison to his earlier incarnations.
  • Videogame Dashing: His Web Glide functions almost similarly to Spencer's Zip Line, a dash move aided by webbing.

    Thanos 

Thanos

"There is no one above me."
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mvcithanos_0.png
"I will take everything by my hand."
Debut: Iron Man #55 (February 1973)
Voiced By: Isaac C. Singleton Jr.

The Mad Titan, Thanos seeks many ways to eradicate the universe and win the love of Mistress Death herself. His path has also put him in sight of the Infinity Stones themselves.
  • Badass Armfold: He does this a lot in the story, and also in gameplay, in his Titan's Gaze move.
  • The Bus Came Back: Thanos was in MvC2, then missed the third game before reappearing here.
  • Counter Attack: The heavy version of Titan Shield has him creating a large energy shield in front of him. If said shield is attacked, he'll immediately retaliate with a punch covered in energy that sends the opponent far back.
  • Distressed Dude: In Story Mode, he starts off being shackled in Xgard under Ultron Sigma's forces' custody. Chris and co infiltrate the castle to free him.
  • Enemy Mine: The heroes aren't exactly welcoming his presence but they really have no choice but to ask for his help. He does backstab the heroes but only after finding out that he was just manipulated by both Death and Jedah. And even then, the worst thing he did in the story was just to knock all of the heroes unconscious and take Ryu's Satsui no Hadou for his own. He even gives back the Time Stone to Gamora, claiming the stone is of no use to him now.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Has an extremely deep, bass voice.
  • Eye Beams: His Titan's Gaze command normal and light version of Insurrection's End has him firing beams from his eyes at the enemy.
  • Grapple Move: His Insurrection's End special.
  • Godzilla Threshold: The fight against Ultron-Sigma has gotten so bad that the heroes decide to break him out of confinement and recruit him to their side as the proverbial "Godzilla". And he's actually quite willing, considering he wants to get back at Ultron Sigma for backstabbing him.
  • Kamehame Hadoken: Assumes this stance in his Final Judgment hyper combo and at The Stinger of the story mode, and is about to throw it at Death.
  • Karma Houdini: Despite being involved in the Convergence, not only does Thanos escape capture once the battle is said and done, he's stolen possession of the Satsui no Hadou and prepares to murder Mistress Death for her supposed betrayal. Justified as nobody aside from Stark (who only knows it late into the story) knows of his part of the Convergence, and that Thanos was a pawn in the grand scheme of things.
  • Kill the God: Attempted. By the end of the story, he steals the Satsui no Hadou in order to kill Death.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Downplayed. His normal movement is slow, but he has high health and his attacks deal a lot of damage, and his air dash and teleport abilities make him more mobile than one would expect a character of his size would be.
  • Love Hurts: Attacks the heroes in rage because Stark claims that Death only manipulated him and his love. Then Thanos wrests the Time Stone from Stark's hands and confirms his story to be true. When Stark says this trope name in his face, Thanos agrees badly.
  • Magic from Technology: Thanos uses the technology from Abel City to create a high-tech gauntlet to steal and harness the Satsui no Hado from Ryu, a malevolent power of supernatural origin.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!: Played with, in that 1) he's far from being a "hero" in the traditional sense, but he really is against Ultron Sigma, 2) his specific action of breaking the Reality Stone on Ultron Sigma's head makes them vulnerable, but also left the heroes unable to de-merge their worlds and undo all the damage.
  • Not So Different: Has this opinion on Stark and Dr. Light. For all their good work, they're as responsible as Thanos for causing the Convergence (through Ultron and Sigma, their indirect creations).
  • No-Holds-Barred Beatdown: His Level 3, Cosmic Fall, where he beats down the opponent and knocks them up before making them explode powerfully. He also delivers this against Ultron Sigma during their assault on Avengers Tower, breaking the Reality Stone in the process, forcing them to flee.
  • The Paralyzer: His Emperor's Stance special has him release a short-ranged energy burst from his body that paralyzes his opponent.
  • Power Fist: He lacks the usual Infinity Gauntlet here, but instead he fashions himself a new gauntlet in Abel City which he uses to absorb Ryu's Satsui no Hadou.
  • Power Parasite: He steals the Satsui no Hadou from Ryu, declaring him to be unworthy to wield it.
  • Punched Across the Room: His Palm Breaker unique normal move where he palm strikes his foe, sending them to the back wall. Also the heavy version of Titan's Shield.
  • Role Reprisal: From the Marvel Universe shows.
  • Same Character, but Different: Much like Jill Valentine in MvC3, his moveset has been completely revamped from his Marvel vs. Capcom 2 moveset, which itself was essentially a holdover of his moves from Marvel Super Heroes. Justified due to his MvC2 moveset being based on him wielding the Infinity Gauntlet, which he obviously lacks here.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: He's been sealed in two different cans. The heroes find him trapped in a technologically-advanced headbrace, and after he's taken to the Avengers Tower, they debate recruiting him while he's in a high-tech jail cell. That said, as the fight has crossed the Godzilla Threshold, part of the story's conflict involves whether or not to open the can for the sake of the greater good. He's ultimately released when Iron Man and Spencer's attack on Ultron Sigma takes out the Avengers Tower's power, turning off Thanos' cell.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: When Ultron-Sigma enters the heroes' base, they basically command the heroes to bow before him, their "god". Thanos' response? "You are no God."
  • Slouch of Villainy: In his intro, he's shown sitting on his throne before the fight starts. If he wins the fight, he'll summon the throne to slouch on it again.
  • Techno Babble: While helping out constructing the Infinity Buster for X, he starts talking in simple terms at first, helping Stark keep up a bit. But when he starts saying words that are way out of Stark's league, the poor guy is lost for words.
  • Teleportation: His Titan's Deceit special places him behind his opponent, allowing him to cross them up for surprise attacks.
  • Throwing Your Shield Always Works: The LK version of his Titan Shield special has him sending the shield forward as a projectile.
  • Took a Level in Badass: As of The Stinger, he has the Satsui no Hadou.
  • Unwitting Pawn: To Jedah and Mistress Death. And he isn't happy about it.
  • Videogame Dashing: He's capable of forwards and backwards air dash.
  • Wave Motion Gun: One of his new hyper combos, Final Judgment, is him firing 5 continuous lasers at his foe.
  • Woman Scorned: A male variant, during The Stinger, when he threatens to kill Lady Death using the Satsui no Hadou.

    Thor Odinson 

Thor Odinson

"Thou wishest to test thy strength against mine? By all means!"
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mvcithor_1.png
"A king cannot let himself be defeated."
Debut: Journey into Mystery #83 (August 1962)

The son of Odin himself, Thor was banished to Earth for his selfish ways and, as Dr. Donald Blake, became humbled and learned to cherish all. Welding the mighty enchanted hammer Mjolnir, Thor defends both Asgard and his adopted Midgard (Earth) as the mighty God of Thunder and an Avenger.
  • Blood Knight: As an Asgardian, he loves good battles. Like Ryu, he emphasizes the "Knight" part in that he fights for justice and protecting his beloved homes.
  • Blue Lightning, Yellow Lightning: His lighting attacks are now blue instead of yellow like in MvC3.
  • Bolt of Divine Retribution: In his new Level 3 hyper, after beating his foe up, he uses Mjolnir to summon one to strike the enemy.
  • Boomerang Comeback: His Mighty Spark move can be continued into him throwing Mjolnir forward, which flies back towards him, hitting the enemy twice.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: For most of the Story Mode, he's been infected by the virus and is forced to fight against the heroes. It isn't until the climax of the story where he's playable again, thanks to the Soul Stone purifying him, teaming up with X to save Dante from Ultron-Sigma's One-Winged Angel.
  • Deadly Lunge: His Mighty Strike is him lunging towards the foe in midair Mjolnir-first.
  • Drop the Hammer: His usual Mjolnir, a magical hammer that is loyal to him.
  • Embarrassing Nickname: When Thor is possessed by Ultron-Sigma, Spider-Man calls him "Iron Man" as a joke. When Thor is freed and the day is saved, Thor tells him that if he calls him Iron Man again, he'll crush him.
  • Flight: He's capable of this for a short time.
  • Grapple Move: Aside from his Mighty Tornado, his Mighty Punish Hyper Combo returns from MvC3.
  • Ground Pound: His Mighty Smash is him leaping up, then falling down with a smash from his hammer.
  • Mighty Glacier: Like in the third game, he moves slowly but packs a lot of punch.
  • Regenerating Mana: He retains his hyper gauge-regenerating speech taunt from the previous game, although the quote is different.
  • Role Reprisal: From the Marvel Universe shows.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: A Warrior Prince who fights to take back his homeland from Ultron Sigma.
  • Shock and Awe: What else to expect from the God of Thunder?
  • Spinning Piledriver: Mighty Hurricane, which ends in an explosion of lightning for extra measure.
  • Tornado Move: His Mighty Tornado hyper combo creates an electric tornado around him.
  • Videogame Dashing: He can do 8 way air dash.

    Ultron 

Ultron

http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mvciultron_5.png
"I am the summit of perfection in this universe!"
Debut: The Avengers #55 (August 1968)
Voiced by: Jim Meskimen

An android developed by Dr. Hank Pym (better known as Ant-Man) when he began dabbling in robotics. He automatically rebelled against his creator and has not only been a thorn in the side of Pym's teammates the Avengers, but also given them various allies, including The Vision, Jocasta and Victor Mancha.
  • 0% Approval Rating: As always, Ultron is utterly despised and hated by everyone both from the Marvel and the Capcom universes. Considering that he is an omnicidal maniac, most people, aside from drones or roboticized slaves, want nothing to do with the crazed robot.
  • A.I. Is a Crapshoot: Was created using Dr. Pym's brain patterns as the basis of his A.I., which unfortunately meant he inherited some of his creator's neurosis with none of the morality. He rebelled practically from the second he was activated.
  • Alpha Strike: Ultron's level 3 hyper combo, Sentry Legion, has him summon Mecha-Mooks to lay into his opponent before he joins them in blasting their victim with lasers.
  • Assist Character: Ultron can summon android drones to assist him, either with smacking the enemy or shooting them with lasers, though they can be smacked away where they will drop to the ground and explode after a brief moment.
  • Big Bad: One of the game's Big Bads in this game, working with Sigma due to their shared goal.
  • Computer Voice: His voice has an electronic echo, fitting for an android.
  • Death Ray: The literal name of his basic beam special, where he fires 2 quick beams from both hands in different positions (straight forward for the light punch version, crossed-in-front for the hard punch version). The hyper combo version, Destruction Wave, has him firing 2 continuous beams that cross in front of him, and his level 3 ends with him and his drones blasting at the enemy from their hands.
  • Diving Kick: Not a kick, but still, he has a diving charge for a special, known as Fatal Swipe.
  • Energy Ball: He can create an energy ball in front of him both as a special move (Protonium Emitter) and hyper combo (Encephalo-Ray); the latter is able to stun the target in place.
  • Eviler Than Thou: Pulled this on Thanos prior to the Convergence after merging with Sigma, defeating Thanos and taking the Space Stone from him.
  • Evil Is Not a Toy: Thanos recruited him to help gather the Infinity Stones. Ultron quickly betrayed him after meeting Sigma.
  • Fusion Dance: He and Sigma merge to become Ultron-Sigma.
  • Glasgow Grin: The "expression" on his faceplate invokes this, as if someone carved a Slasher Smile out of a pumpkin. It's also present with Ultron-Sigma, though slightly less so.
  • Grapple Move: His Enchepalo-Ray hyper is a grab move that stuns the opponent, leaving them open for combos.
  • Hand Blast: He fires beams from his hands when he fights personally, not unlike how Iron Man normally uses his repulsors outside of these games.
  • Hypocrite: Villainous Friendship aside, Sigma's humanlike appearance repulses Ultron, and in fact one of the first arrangements of their merging is that they use Ultron's form as the base to get away from that. In the comics, he once took the picture-perfect form of Janet Pym.
  • Omnicidal Maniac: Ultron is obsessed with eliminating all organic life. Humorously, though he's by and large the more sophisticated of the two, between he and Sigma, Ultron is the first to jump to violence as a resort, whereas Sigma leans more on the planning side.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: One of the telltale signs he's a Killer Robot.
  • Red Oni, Blue Oni: He's the blue to Sigma's red. This is made evident in their fused self's forms. Ultron-Sigma's personality is clearly dominated by Ultron as they become incredibly calculating and remain composed even as the heroes fight against them. Ultron-Omega, on the other hand, is dominated by Sigma, since his likeness takes up most of the form, his voice is more prominent, and they become significantly more aggressive and insane.
  • Role Reprisal: From Avengers, Assemble!.
  • Shoryuken: His Melt Blast move, which is a rising upper attack that leads into an airborne grab into an eye laser (the actual Melt Blast attack).
  • Stealth Pun: Ultron would like you to know he is "the summit of perfection in this universe". Why, yes, Ultron; you are indeed the perfect Sigma of your universe.
  • Taking You with Me: When the two first meet in Abel City's mainframe, Sigma takes none too kindly to someone moving in on his turf and proposes to just scramble Ultron's coding to oblivion and call it a day. Ultron is quick to note he could simply do the same in turn, and as the two can read one another's code, Sigma realizes he could in fact accomplish this, and the situation would end in both pointlessly destroying each other simultaneously. This stalemate is what gets them talking.
  • Video Game Flight: In addition to an air dash, Ultron can hover in the air on command, giving him great aerial mobility.
  • Wolverine Claws: He literally has claws he slashes with in some of his attacks.

    Venom 

Venom

"We are...VENOM!"
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mvcivenom.png
"You were not a challenge! Give us more worthy prey!"
Debut (Symbiote): The Amazing Spider-Man #252 (May 1984)
Debut (Eddie Brock): The Amazing Spider-Man #300 (May 1988)
Voiced by: Andrew Morgado

Eddie Brock was once a reporter for the Daily Globe before Spider-Man unwittingly debunked his exposé on the Sin Eater serial killer, leading to a series of events that ruined Eddie's life. Blaming his misfortune on the Wall-Crawler, Eddie stopped by a church to pray for forgiveness before committing suicide. There, he encountered a symbiotic alien life-form called a klyntar, which had once been bonded to Spider-Man, taking on the appearance of a black costume and enhancing his powers while also making him more aggressive. Discovering that the symbiote was trying to permanently bond with him, Spider-Man had forced it off of himself and tried to kill it, but had only succeeded in enraging it. The vengeful symbiote bonded to Eddie, granting him all of Spider-Man's powers and transforming him into the monstrous anti-hero Venom.
  • All Webbed Up: His normal throw move and his Venom Web hyper causes this on his opponent.
  • Always Accurate Attack: His Venom Web hyper has him extend a complete spider web net to the whole screen, which will trap his opponent in web if they don't block it.
  • Anti-Hero: While he's mostly known as Spider-Man's Arch-Enemy, he has shown that he can be a capable hero in his own right, even if he has a rather twisted sense of justice. His intro quote when paired up with an Avenger like Hulk or Thor even references this.
    "I will be ten times the Avenger that accursed Spider was!"
  • Ax-Crazy: Venom laughs gleefully while fighting, considers fighting to be fun, and wants to eat his opponents.
    "Venom Throw! See? Isn't this fun?"
    "We're gonna mess you up!"
    "Where are you going? Why don't we just break you?!"
  • Breaking the Fourth Wall: His victory pose has him jumping up, then shooting a web at the screen and then dashing towards it, i.e basically coming at you.
  • The Bus Came Back: Venom's last playable appearance in the series was in Marvel vs. Capcom 2: New Age of Heroes, though Eddie did cameo as Anti-Venom in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3's Heroes and Heralds Mode.
  • Combat Tentacles: The symbiote is able to extrude its biomass into tentacles and pseudopods, which Venom uses to attack and restrain opponents.
  • Dark Is Not Evil: It theoretically depends on who's using the symbiote, but Eddie Brock in particular is still a hero who fights bad(der) guys despite the symbiote's freaky appearance and powers.
  • Dash Attack: He has a new special move (Venom Barrel) where he dashes in midair while tentacle spikes jut out of his body.
  • Death from Above: His new Level 3 hyper ends with him slamming down onto his enemy from above.
  • Downloadable Content: He can be downloaded in the first batch of DLC.
  • Evil Counterpart: To his Arch-Enemy Spider-Man.
  • Good Costume Switch: One of Venom's alternate skins is Anti-Venom.
  • Ground Wave: His Death Bite hyper has him causing a wave of twisting, biting symbiote jaws on the ground to move forward to bite his opponent and carry them backwards.
  • I Am A Humanitarian: Some of Venom's quips have him declare his intent to eat his opponents.
    "Shut up and let us eat you!"
    "Devour everything! Death Bite!"
    "So many snacks... so little time."
  • I Am Legion: As Eddie and the symbiote act more-or-less in sync, Venom famously refers to himself as "we."
  • Jack-of-All-Stats: Compared to Spider-Man he's not as mobile, but he can do higher damage on his specials; he's also got average health.
  • Lovecraftian Superpower: In addition to his fangs and claws, Venom can freely project pseudopodia and tentacles formed from the symbiote's biomass, and can also sprout additional mouths anywhere on the symbiote. Case in point, his Venom Rush and Death Bite attacks project a flurry of tentacles tipped with fanged mouths.
  • Man Bites Man: One of his normal attacks merges his arms and head into a massive set of jaws, and his Venom Fang attack turns him into a giant head that dives at his opponents mouth-first.
  • Metronomic Man Mashing: His Web Throw move involves him snaring his opponent with webbing and slamming them back and forth.
  • More Teeth than the Osmond Family: One of Venom's trademarks is his fang-lined jaws, which he puts to good use by chomping down on his opponents.
  • Same Character, but Different: Averted. Unlike Thanos, the other character on the roster who was cut in MvC3 before reappearing in Infinite, Venom retains his moveset from the older games.
  • The Symbiote: The Venom symbiote is a member of a species of amorphous aliens that bond to a host and act as a suit of Bio-Armor. Corrupted by the rage and hatred of its hosts, however, it became a bloodthirsty monster with a ravenous appetite for flesh, especially brains.
  • Trap Master: He's got a new special move, Venom Trap where he plants a symbiote mouth on the ground (the HK version of which can be moved around a la Morrigan's Harmonious Spear). If the opponent steps onto it or jumps over it, they'll get trapped in symbiote goo like Spider-Man's Web Ball.
  • Videogame Dashing: This game gives him the same Web Glide as Spider-Man's, with an additional perk of aiming the web vertically up or down (while Spidey cannot), although he cannot do it twice in a row unlike Spidey.

    Winter Soldier 

Winter Soldier

"I'm the Winter Soldier. Nothing but a ghost."
http://static.tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pub/images/mvciwintersoldier.png
"I've learned to live with my guilt. That's what pushes me to be better."
Debut (as Bucky): Captain America Comics #1 (March 1941)
Debut (as Winter Soldier): Captain America #1 (January 2005)
Voiced by: Scott Porter

James Buchanan Barnes, better known to his friends as "Bucky", was a young soldier who fought alongside Captain America as his sidekick until his death in 1945. What no one realized was that, like Captain America, Bucky's body was preserved in ice following his "demise". He would be found by the Soviets, who brainwashed him and revived him as the "Winter Soldier". Maintaining his youth via cryo-stasis when not on a mission, Bucky has been transformed into a deadly assassin, gifted with a prosthetic arm made with vibranium and a deadly, ice-cold demeanor.
  • Ambidextrous Sprite: His metal arm frequently switches sides, not unlike Spencer's Bionic Arm.
  • Artificial Limbs: He has a prosthetic arm made of vibranium, a metal capable of absorbing and deflecting vibrations.
  • Combination Attack: Performing his own version of Unyielding Justice with Cap as his partner yields a different animation where both of them actively double-team the opponent.
  • Downloadable Content: He can be downloaded in the first batch of DLC.
  • Friction Burn: His intro has him sliding into position while braking with his metal arm against the ground, which causes burns. One of his hypers has him scratch his metal arm along the ground for a powerful uppercut.
    • Becomes Fridge Logic when you consider that his arm is made of vibranium, which absorbs energy such as friction heat and sparks.
  • Lag Cancel: He can cancel his Metal Arm stance, his Counter Thrust special (from Metal Arm stance) and his pistol shot normal into a dash.
  • Megaton Punch: Most of his moves involving his arm, such as his Level 3 Hyper, have him punching the opponent really hard.
  • Name's the Same: His Level 3 Hyper is also named Unyielding Justice like Captain America's, but is functionally different.
  • No-Sell: His Metal Shield special move, which lets him enter an alternate stance where he puts his glowing metal arm in front of him, which allows him to slowly march forward as attacks bounce harmlessly off of him (unless they hit his leg area). He can still attack with his guns and grenades, and he can cancel the stance into a special punch attack that lets him continue combos.
  • Role Reprisal: From LEGO Marvel's Avengers.
  • Superhero Packing Heat: He's armed with a handgun and an assault rifle, and casually flicks bombs.
  • Take That!: One of his intro quotes derisively references Secret Empire, the 2017 comic storyline that Retconed Captain America into a lifelong HYDRA agent.
    "'Captain Hydra'? Gimme a break, Steve!"
