The various recruitable heroes and heroic [=NPCs=].

!!{{ComicBook/SHIELD}} and MissionControl
The folks who run the show, either via providing exposition, mission briefings, and commentary, or via directly leading missions.

'''Characters:''' ComicBook/NickFury, [[ComicBook/{{SHIELD}} Maria Hill]], [[ComicBook/IronMan Tony Stark]], [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD Agent Coulson]], [[{{ComicBook/X-Men}} Professor X]], the Agent

[[folder:S.H.I.E.L.D. and Mission Control]]
!!Director Nick Fury
->''Main article: NickFury''
* ArbitrarySkepticism: Despite the UrbanFantasy setting of the game, he veers into this at times, particularly in early chapters.
* BaldBlackLeaderGuy: Following his depiction in the Ultimate Marvel and Marvel Cinematic Universe
* CurseCutShort: Get used to hearing this guy say "Sonuva-"
* DeadpanSnarker: He has a dry, vaguely world-weary sense of humor.
* EyepatchOfPower: With an accompanying set of scars.
* MrExposition: A role he shares with Hill and Stark, but he usually gets to speak first.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Imbibed a serum that slowed his aging.
* SophisticatedAsHell: Congratulates the Agent on a job particularly well done by calling them "flat-out badass."
* TeamDad: Gruffer than most, but he cares about his men and women. [[MyFriendsAndZoidberg And Tony]].

!!Maria Hill
->''Fury's second-in-command; a calm woman who doesn't let the pressure of the situation get to her.''
* DefrostingIceQueen: Humorously subverted. At one point Gambit tries hitting on her after completing a mission, but she shuts him down pretty quickly.
* IronLady: This gal is all business.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Sees herself as this, given that she's the only one protesting [[ComicBook/ThePunisher the Punisher]]'s presence on a team which contains several [[HeelFaceTurn former criminals]].
* PowerHair: Short and to the point, just like most of her dialogue.
* StraightMan: Always composed and serious, even in the face of Fury's irritation or Tony's wisecracking. This verges on TheComicallySerious at times.
** NotSoAboveItAll: Though even she can't resist getting in a snarky dig at Deadpool's expense.

!!Agent Coulson
->''Phil Coulson; A S.H.I.E.L.D. agent investigating the anomalous intersection of different dimensions in the wake of the Pulse, otherwise known as Incursions.''
* BadassInANiceSuit
* CaptainObvious: Coulson has a habit of summing up what everyone already knows is happening, which elicits a lot of snark from Tony.
* {{Foil}}: To Tony Stark. Where Tony is alternately flippant or [[DeadpanSnarker deadpan]] (though no less concerned) about the crisis of the moment, Coulson is completely in earnest and comes across as both excitable and inexperienced.
* InsufferableGenius: Quite possibly, with how he's referred to as the "self-proclaimed expert" on Incursions.
* MotiveDecay: Special Operation #14 featured Loki working alongside the heroes...and the Son of Coul did not say anything about the god that once killed him. He never [[Series/AgentsOfSHIELD mentioned Tahiti]], either. Ah, Tahiti...[[MadnessMantra it's a magical place]]. Of course, in this game, it's Incursions that are his magical places. Would you like to hear about Incursions from Agent Incursion?
* ServileSnarker: He's definitely the low-man in the totem pole, but it doesn't stop him from getting in a few zings on his superiors, especially Tony.
-->'''Tony Stark''': He's M.O.D.O.K., smartypants. He could be talking about anything. The only thing he's ever really talking about is himself.\\
'''Agent Coulson''': You are perfectly suited to recognize that, Mr. Stark.
* SingleIssueWonk: Would you like to know about Incursions? Because Coulson would like to tell you about them. Repeatedly. Again and again. Because they're the cause of everything. Even when they probably really aren't.
* UnexplainedRecovery: If a throwaway line from Deadpool is to be believed (admittedly a stretch), this is the same Phil Coulson who was last seen mortally wounded by Loki in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With Tony. He's mastered the fine art of both insulting Tony and defending him against other insults often in the same breath.

!!Professor X
->''Charles Xavier; Overall leader and mentor of the X-Men; real name Professor Charles Xavier.''
* AsYouKnow: Fury introduced him saying "Agent, I'm sure you have heard about Charles Xavier".
* BaldOfAwesome
* GeniusCripple
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: With Magneto.
* PsychicPowers

!!Tony Stark
->''The third member of the main Mission Control team. Tony helps break up long stretches of exposition by dropping whimsical tidbits of information, and generally lightens the mood. He is also the only member of Mission Control who operates in the field, as Iron Man. (See Iron Man's entry in the Blasters section for tropes about his uses in combat.)''

->''Main article: Comicbook/IronMan''
* AceCustom: Pretty obvious quite frankly, given the fact that he not only designed the Iron Man armor, but multiple version of said armor. Which also can apply to his numerous alternate costumes in-game as well.
* BewareTheSillyOnes: He's far more approachable than Fury or Hill, and he meets crisis situations with a seemingly-endless stock of one-liners. But he's also a technical and political genius who knows what he's doing and isn't afraid to get rough if he thinks it's the best thing to do.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Let's face it: Fury would have given him the boot years ago if he weren't so good at his job.
* DeadpanSnarker: In his own words, "snark is my department."
* FunPersonified: The most lighthearted member of Mission Control.
* ItsPersonal: Does this a number of times: when rioters start gathering outside Avengers Mansion, when Loki brags about how easy it was to disrupt the Vault, and when Stark Tower comes under repeated attack in Spec Op 9.
* {{Jerkass}}[=/=]JerkWithAHeartOfGold: Irreverent, talkative, and funny -- unless you're the one whose toes he's treading upon. For example, in the Avengers vs. X-Men storyline, he felt no remorse that one of mutantkind's last hopes in saving their race, the Phoenix Force, was gone because of Avenger interference. He expected to be ''thanked'' by the X-Men for saving the world from the Phoenix.
* LikeAnOldMarriedCouple: With Pepper Potts. Half of the dialogue in Special Ops 9 was devoted to the two of them arguing.
* NeverLiveItDown: in-universe, during the Bright-Eyed, Bushy Tailed covert quests, Nick Fury twice reminds Tony of the time when he was captured by Doom, and that Squirrel Girl was the one who bailed him out.
* PluckyComicRelief: He often makes humorous or sarcastic asides on what the more serious Fury and Hill are saying.
* ShooOutTheClowns: After [[spoiler:Nick Fury and Maria Hill were kidnapped]], he ran Mission Control by himself and was ''far'' more serious.
* SmugSuper: He's "handsome and rich and brilliant and funny", knows it, and loves to tell everyone else so they can know it, too.
* SophisticatedAsHell: Occasionally he reveals that he can keep pace quite well with the CulturedBadass characters.
-->'''Captain Britain''': [''after defeating Whiplash''] I have a special animus for Russians. I'll admit it. Legacy of the Crimea, perhaps.\\
'''Tony''': I have a special animus for Whiplash. Legacy of him wrecking my car.
* VitriolicBestBuds: With...everyone, pretty much, though it especially shows up with Fury, Coulson, War Machine, and Rescue. With Hank Pym it veers more into actual back-biting and WithFriendsLikeThese.
* WeWantOurJerkBack: In Spec Ops 13 [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness he gets uncharacteristically serious and pessimistic]], and Fury actually outright orders him to "get your billionaire-playboy swagger back".

!!The Agent
->''The {{player character}}: a new S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who just happens to be on the Helicarrier when the Pulse hits. Though the Agent can be either gender at the player's choice, dialogue indicates that the Agent is assumed to be male.''
* ActionGirl: If female.
* AndThisIsFor: Suggested by the weapon "Coulson's Revenge," even though Agent Coulson is alive and well.
* AirborneAircraftCarrier[=/=]CoolAirship: Commands a S.H.I.E.L.D. helicarrier.
* AssistCharacter: Can use a "Distress Call" to summon an ally's party member for a brief attack.
* {{Badass}}
** BadassNormal: Often the only person on the team without superpowers (as even the non-mutant human heroes tend to have {{Charles Atlas Superpower}}s), though gaining the use of Iso-8 may elevate him/her to EmpoweredBadassNormal.
** BadassBandolier: The second-most powerful uniforms have these, in keeping with comicbook stereotypes.
** BadassLongcoat: While the most powerful uniforms are leather trenchcoats, taking the stereotypes even further.
* BattleAura: Suggested by the Power Armor uniforms which glow the color that corresponds to the uniform's class.
* {{BFG}}: The Agent has access to several of these, the most notable of which being [[PhilCoulson Coulson's]] [[Film/TheAvengers Revenge]].
* {{BFS}}: These too.
* CombatMedic: The Agent can heal allies and restore stamina thru various gadgets or by using items during battle.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Can be invoked when the Agent counterattacks with "Brawl" and it finishes off the enemy. Now imagine that enemy being someone like Ultron or Dormammu.
* EnsignNewbie: Thrown directly from training into the front lines, thanks to the arrival of the Pulse, and becomes the point character for all the major battles thereafter.
* HelloInsertNameHere[=/=]EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep: Has whatever name you give him/her, but everyone else just uses "Agent".
* HeroicMime
* HyperspaceArsenal: Though the Agent can carry up to four items, only one is visible at a time.
* MoreDakka: Depending upon the weapons, the Agent can land up to 12 hits per turn.
* MultiMeleeMaster: Can bring up to four weapons or gadgets into combat and switch between them at will with no penalty.
* MusclesAreMeaningless: The female sprite is much less muscular than the male one, but both can hit equally hard.
* RookieRedRanger: He/she is a newbie S.H.I.E.L.D. agent immediately asked to take command of Earth's mightiest heroes against a growing threat to the world.
* StatusBuffDispel: He/she can remove enemy buffs through items like the Mystical Munition or the Nanoplague, or gear like Foley's Heart Tickler and the Scroll of Angolob.
* WalkingArmory: He/she has access to numerous weapons, be they guns, swords, or other deadly weaponry.
* WhatTheHellHero: If you [[spoiler:unlock Dr. Doom, several heroes will protest this decision.]] As a result, ''no'' hero will team up with you as long as [[spoiler: Dr. Doom is on your team.]]

[[JackOfAllStats Tacticians]] take an {{extra turn}} when attacking Blasters. Aptly portrayed by heroes known as [[TheLeader leaders]] and brilliant [[TheStrategist strategists]].

'''Characters:''' [[ComicBook/TheInhumans Black Bolt]], [[ComicBook/CaptainBritainAndMI13 Black]] [[ComicBook/TheAvengers Knight]], ComicBook/BlackPanther, ComicBook/CaptainAmerica, [[Characters/MarvelUniverse Constrictor]], ComicBook/{{Cyclops}}, SelfDemonstrating/DoctorDoom, [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Emma Frost]], [[ComicBook/XForce Fantomex]], [[ComicBook/{{Ant-Man}} Hank Pym]], ComicBook/{{Hawkeye}}, ComicBook/{{Loki}}, SelfDemonstrating/{{Magneto}}, [[ComicBook/{{Thunderbolts}} Moonstone]], [[ComicBook/FantasticFour Mr. Fantastic]], ComicBook/RedHulk, [[ComicBook/IronMan Rescue]], ComicBook/WarMachine

!!Black Bolt
-->'''Black Bolt''': [[VisibleSilence ...]]
-->'''Emma Frost''': He wants to thank you for everything you've done for the Inhumans, Agent. You can count him as an ally, now and in the future.

->''Even amongst the race of super-powered Inhumans, Blackagar Boltagon's abilities are terrifyingly destructive. Blessed and cursed with a voice that can shatter whole planets, Black Bolt must keep forever mute, lest a single incautious whisper kill everyone around him. As the King of the Inhumans, it is his duty to protect the Inhuman city of Attilan and guide his people through an uncertain future.''
* AlliterativeName
* ChargedAttack: His Power Word attack, which consumes all Ambient Particles buffs on him and all allies to unleash what is a potentially devastating attack. It should also be noted that every ally can hold up to 10 charges of Ambient Particles, so this move is by far one of the strongest attacks in the game thus far, rivaling Havok's buffed up Plasma Wave.
* CursedWithAwesome: As evidenced by his bio, his powers have the potential to destroy entire PLANETS without much exertion (this power in particular is utilized by his voice), unfortunately forcing him to stay mute for everyone's safety lest he devastates entire cities or mountain ranges by speaking a sentence or less.
** Good thing he doesn't talk in his sleep.
** Ironic since he specifically trained himself not to do so, completely doing away with instinctual talking or crying out
* DarkIsNotEvil: Despite being decked out in a pitch-black costume that does look intimidating and possessing tremendously destructive powers, Black Bolt is a staunch defender of the good guys and innocents.
* FlyingBrick
* MakeMeWannaShout: "Whisper" and "Power Word." Black Bolt's voice is so powerful that even his whispers have the capability to incapacitate opponents.
* NoKillLikeOverkill: "Power Word", the aforementioned ChargedAttack becomes this
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: He's the king of the Inhumans and has a range of superpowers including super strength, flight and a voice that can shatter planets and is very much active in protecting innocents.
* SilentSnarker: If the various telepaths' entertained and/or offended reactions to eavesdropping on his thoughts about the bad guys are any indication...
* StatusBuffDispel: His Whisper attack inflicts Buff Blocker on enemies, which removes and prevents most of their buffs.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: If it's still not obvious, '''Black'''agar '''Bolt'''agon.
* VisibleSilence: The only hero so far whose dialogue consists entirely of this, unsurprisingly.
* TheVoiceless: For everyone else's sake. Everyone else speaks for him instead.

!!Black Knight
-->"You have my sword, Agent. ...Come on, you knew I was going to say it."

->''Nathan Garrett, the previous villainous Black Knight, begged his nephew Dane to take up the name and restore its legacy. As one of the greatest swordsmen on earth, Dane Whitman has more then kept his promise. With the all-cleaving Ebony Blade and psyche-disrupting Sword of Light, the Black Knight is equipped to handle any challenge.''
* AbsurdlySharpBlade: The Ebony Blade ignores defense and shields.
* AntiMagic: His Magic Warding passive makes him immune to Magic Effects (i.e. Soulfire or Hexed) and taking reduced damage from magic attacks.
* AssistCharacter: Black Knight can summon Valinor, his mystical winged steed from Avalon, to attack his foes.
* TheAtoner: Sheds the 'Blood Curse' by adopting a stance which protects the rest of the team, via a move aptly called 'Atonement'.
* BadassCape: Dark blue and cloaklike.
* BloodKnight: Literally becomes this when 'Blood Curse' is applied, due to the malevolent Ebony Blade.
* ChargedAttack: When defending against ranged attacks in his 'Chivalrous Duty' mode, he converts each intercepted attack into a Sword of Light charge-up, increasing the damage on the next use of Ebony Blade.
* DarkIsNotEvil: He might have dark armour and an evil black sword, but his noble heart makes him very much a hero.
* GeniusBruiser: He gets the "Eggheads" bonus, and is a physicist like Captain Britain, but he looks and fights like a KnightInShiningArmor.
* GoingNative: He's ''supposed'' to be American, but talks about serving the Queen, calls the US "the colonies", and calls Tony a "Yank", so it's either this or Adaptational Nationality.
* RedeemingReplacement: The heroic nephew of a former, villainous Black Knight.
* ScienceDestroysMagic: Implied by his Magic Warding passive that reduces damage from magic attacks and neutralizes all magical debuffs.
* ShieldBash: His "Shield of Night" attack.
* StanceSystem: Has the aggressive "Blood Curse" stance and the defensive "Chivalrous Duty". By using his L1 Ebony Blade attack, he gains the Blood Curse buff and becomes more offense-oriented, with a chance to perform follow-up or counter attacks on bleeding targets. With his L2 Atonement move, he gains the Chivalrous Duty buff instead and plays more defensively by protecting his allies and either getting charge-ups from ranged attacks or a chance to parry and retaliate against melee attacks. He can only have 1 of these buffs at any time, so gaining Blood Curse would cancel out Chivalrous Duty and vice versa.
* TakingTheBullet: See the description of "Chivalrous Duty" above.
* YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe: Played with in Season 2; he does it back and forth with Selene for a bit but then says "all right, that's enough" and starts talking normally again. He also waxes a bit poetic around Tony, who then snarks at him for it.

!!Black Panther
-->"Wakanda has no need of S.H.I.E.L.D., but S.H.I.E.L.D. has need of Wakanda. As long as our goals align, I will fight by your side."

->''Heir to the ruling dynasty of the ancient kingdom of Wakanda, T'Challa became king and Black Panther as a young man and has transformed Wakanda into a high-tech powerhouse. Wary of outside interests that seek to exploit Wakanda's enormous Vibranium deposits, he is a powerful ally but always keeps his home country's interests first and foremost. He is married to Storm but the demands of the X-Men and Wakanda often keep them apart.''\\
''Main article: ComicBook/BlackPanther''
* AbsurdlySharpClaws: Anti-Metal Claws ignore enemy's defense and shield.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: He wears a panther-like mask and his weapons are special Vibranium claws.
* BadassCape: Black and simple.
* CaptainPatriotic: Places the interests of Wakanda above all. He even says as much in his recruitment message.
-->'''Black Panther''': Wakanda has no need of S.H.I.E.L.D., but S.H.I.E.L.D. has need of Wakanda. As long as our goals align, I will fight by your side.
* CoolMask
* GeniusBruiser: Like Captain Britain he's a physicist and gets the "Dr." and "Eggheads" bonuses, but his battle style consists of making things bleed with his claws and buffing himself up.
* HappilyMarried: To Storm.
* KryptoniteFactor: his Vibranium attacks are the weakness of the Ultron clones in the Heroic Battle of 2.3.5.
* LegacyCharacter: He inherited the Black Panther title from his father whom also inherited it from a relative going back hundreds of years ago.
* PantheraAwesome
* RoyalsWhoActuallyDoSomething: Not only is he the king of Wakanda but he is also an active superhero.
* StatusBuffDispel: By throwing his Vibranium Daggers at an opponent.

!!Captain America
-->"Glad to be on board, Agent."

->''Product of a World War II super soldier experiment, Steve Rogers was recovered from a block of ice years after a mission over Europe went disastrously wrong. Thrown into a future that he's still not used to, he brings an old-fashioned resolve to the Avengers' mission.''\\
''Main article: Comicbook/CaptainAmerica''
* CaptainGeographic
* CaptainPatriotic: Fights to uphold the values of America (but ''not'' necessarily its government).
* TheGoodCaptain[=/=]CaptainSuperhero
* LuckilyMyShieldWillProtectMe: He has a Defensive Stance passive, which has a chance to reduce damage taken by way of his Mighty Shield.
* MilitarySuperhero
* NotSoAboveItAll: Despite being a perfectly professional soldier under all circumstances, even he can't resist a snarky suggestion to stick Grey Gargoyle "on a cathedral somewhere" after defeating him yet again.
* OlderThanTheyLook: Was only recently defrosted from an involuntary cryostasis.
* ShieldBash: His Level 1 attack is literally called this, too.
* SuperSerum: The famous basis of his powers.
* TakingTheBullet: Cap's "Shield Guard" ability, which allows him to intercept enemy attacks, then hitting the attacking foe with a counter move.
* ThrowingYourShieldAlwaysWorks: "Shield Throw" sends the shield out in a wide circle to hit all enemies and then return to his hand.

-->"Alright, Agent, let's get this show on the road. ...Oh, and tell Hercules to stop giving me the stink-eye, will ya?"

->''Frank Payne began his career as an Agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., but the lure of money and power drove him to crime. He donned a cybernetic suit equipped with prehensile, electrified metal coils and took on the moniker of Constrictor. After winning an excessive force lawsuit against Hercules, he had all the money he could want, and decided he wanted to return to the life of a hero...or at least a soldier with a few scruples.''
* AnimalThemeNaming: The boa constrictor.
* AntiVillain: He may be willing to fight for the bad guys if paid handsomely, but Frank still respects the sanctity of human life, even stopping to save a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent in the Vault breakout. It turns out that he ultimately does want to do the right thing, although his heroism is tempered by his past experiences.
* ArsonMurderAndJaywalking: mentions in his Lockbox story that the Helicarrier smelling like motor oil is one of the reasons he left SHIELD.
* AssistCharacter: Constrictor's level 9 attack is a Distress Call that summons Magneto, who uses Graviton Well. Although it is only usable once per battle, it's a Quick Action move which costs no Stamina. Its eventually upgraded so that he can randomly summon any other Lockbox hero.
* TheAtoner: Wants to go back to being a hero, after realizing that he needed more than money to feel satisfied with himself.
* ClothesMakeTheSuperman: His high-tech battlesuit with a pair of electrified CombatTentacles.
* ConscienceMakesYouGoBack: In the Marvel XP files is a story about how he reluctantly saved a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent from the Wendigo even when he could have [[WhatYouAreInTheDark left the man to die with no witnesses]]. (This ultimately costs him his chance to escape from the Vault).
* EvilCounterpart: When he's a boss, he's this to the Agent -- he can use items and call other villains in for support. Even as a hero, he's more or less what the Agent might become if s/he gets disappointed.
* HeelFaceTurn
* ItemCaddy: His ''Quartermaster'' passive allows him to use a random consumable up to once per turn.
* KnightInSourArmor
* OnlyInItForTheMoney: The primary driving forces for Frank's turn to villainy were the disillusionment and poverty he experienced as a S.H.I.E.L.D. RedShirt. He decides to reform after earning a huge injury settlement against Hercules and no longer having to worry about his income.
* ShockAndAwe: His vibranium coils are electrified and can stun opponents.
* VillainProtagonist: His [[AllThereInTheManual side-story in Marvel XP]] centers around him dealing with a breakout in the Vault and fighting various escaped monsters.
* WelcomeBackTraitor
* WhipItGood

-->"The X-Men are with you, Agent. Iso-8 in the wrong hands is a menace to everyone."

->''Professor X's first student, Scott Summers is one of the X-Men's leaders. Able to discharge devastating energy bolts from his eyes via a breach between universes, Cyclops is one of the most powerful mutants to graduate the School of Gifted Youngsters.''\\
''Main article: Comicbook/{{Cyclops}}''
* AlliterativeName: Scott Summers
* ArmorPiercingAttack: his Empowered ISO-8 exclusive allows his Optic Blasts (both the lvl 1 and lvl 9 variants) to ignore defense.
* BackFromTheDead: His Uncanny outfit's ''Don't Die on Me!'' passive grants a 25% chance to a K.O.'ed ally to revive with 1% health.
* EyeBeams: His trademark optic blasts.
* AFatherToHisMen: Scott's skillset and passives focus on motivating and bolstering his team with buffs, extra turns, counterattacks, or even revivals. His Blue Team (Uncanny) outfit epitomizes this trope.
* HeroicWillpower: He motivates his teammates when they are attacked, increasing all their stats.
* HitAndRunTactics: The essence of Cyke's updated moveset, which is fitting considering his expertise in guerrilla tactics; his powers involve having allies take multiple hits against enemies, be it counterattacking with the 'Combat Expertise' buff or follow-up attacks by applying the 'Flanked' debuff.
* HowDareYouDieOnMe: The essence of Uncanny Cyclops' passive, as mentioned above.
* PowerIncontinence: Cyclops cannot control his optic blasts and must wear his visor at almost all times.
* PowerNullifier: His "Exploit Weakness" attack creates a negative counter-effect according to the class of whoever he's targeting.
* RedEyesTakeWarning: Scott's glowing eyes become briefly visible when using ''Mega Optic Blast''.
* [[TheGlassesComeOff The Visor Comes Off]]: His ultimate move ''Mega Optic Blast''.

!!Doctor Doom
-->'''Mr. Fantastic''': I object to this. In the strongest possible terms.
-->'''Doctor Doom''': As always, Richards, your objections are irrelevant.

->''Born a gypsy in the Balkan kingdom of Latveria, the man who would become Dr. Doom was a college friend of Reed Richards' until the rivalry between the two brilliant students caused a disfiguring accident to Doom's face. Already a powerful sorcerer, Doom became a technological wizard as well, taking over Latveria (where his army of Doombots awaits deployment) and becoming one of the most powerful threats to S.H.I.E.L.D. and the civilized world.''
* ActuallyADoombot: In the [[BonusBoss Epic Boss battle]] of Chapter 3 Mission 5
* AGodAmI: As to be expected, '''''Doom is SUPREME OVER ALL!'''''
* ArchEnemy: '''''RICHAAAAAAAAARDS!!'''''
* AssistCharacter: His Summon Servo-Guard move extends to multiple actions to summon different Servo-Guards that have different effects.
* BadassCape
* BadassNormal: Even though he has vast knowledge in science and sorcery, he is still a mortal.
* BigBad: [[spoiler:essentially the main villain amongst the entire BigBadEnsemble of Season 1, and fittingly the TrueFinalBoss.]]
* ChargedAttack: His Doom Canon, which hits all enemies and cannot be blocked, takes 12 rounds before it can used. The countdown is reduced by using tech actions and the damage is increased when he uses Magic actions.
* TheChessmaster
* DeathOrGloryAttack: Doom Cannon takes quite some time to be available for use. And if it does, prepare to unleash doom to the enemy party.
* TheDreaded: As long as Doom is in the battle, his Imperial Ring passive can induce any enemy attack to fail 20% of the time via the Cower debuff.
* DoomyDoomsOfDoom
* EmperorScientist: Of Latveria.
* EveryoneHasStandards: Everybody refuses to work with Doom when he decides to assist S.H.I.E.L.D., even people like [[BloodKnight Sabretooth]] and [[WellIntentionedExtremist Magneto]].
* EvilOverlord
* EvilVersusOblivion: He agrees to work with S.H.I.E.L.D. because of the incursions and the threat they pose to all of reality.
* GeniusBruiser
* GodzillaThreshold: Incursions are more or less the only thing that could force S.H.I.E.L.D. to work with him (and vice versa).
* HandBlast: The electric bolts from his hands are due to his suit of armor; his magical blasts are due to his talent in sorcery.
* HannibalLecture: Much like Loki, Doom will reprimand you for opposing him before; he then rubs in your face that you are the one joining his own personal battle against Incursions.
* InsufferableGenius
* InTheHood
* KillSat: His ultimate ability, Doom Cannon.
* LargeHam: With extra pork.
* LastNameBasis: With Reed Richards
* LifeDrain: Trifurcator reduces an enemy's health and [[ManaDrain stamina]] by a fraction and restores stamina to all party members; Steal Essence damages the enemy and reduces their stats while restoring health to all party members and giving a stack of Full Doom to Doom, increasing his stats.
* {{Magitek}}: Doom combines magic and technology ''really well''.
* MoralityPet: To keep Doom at bay, S.H.I.E.L.D. christens the Agent his human RestrainingBolt.
* NinjaPirateZombieRobot: A metal-armored-human-sorcerer-with-gadgets-and-robots. In Tony's words, "crazy cyber warlock".
* PercentDamageAttack: Trifurcator, which is Doom's version of Bifurcator, reduces the enemy's health and stamina by a set percentage.
* PowerArmor
* RagsToRoyalty: Villainous version. From a Latverian gypsy came to rise a dreaded emperor and dictator.
* TheRival: Quite a few but Reed Richards is most prominent.
* StanceSystem: His Technological Superiority, Dark Arts and Summon Servo-Guard abilities extends to multiple actions.
* StevenUlyssesPerhero: His surname actually ''is'' Doom -- as far as we can tell.
* SorcerousOverlord: On top of mastering science, he extended his knowledge and talents to sorcery.
* ThirdPersonPerson
* TinTyrant
* TrueFinalBoss: of Season 1; you'll need Mr. Fantastic to unlock his mission.
* WellIntentionedExtremist: As his playable hero profile states, Doom's ways are evil, but his inflated ego tells him that only his iron rule can create a total utopia.
* WorthyOpponent: He considers the incursions of being this for him but specifically denies Reed Richards of ever being this, despite the numerous times Reed has defeated him.
* ZeroPercentApprovalRating: As mentioned above, ''no one'' will fight alongside the Agent if Doom is along, hero or villain alike.

!!Emma Frost
-->"I know what you are thinking, Agent...Remember that, and we can work together."

->''Born wealthy and privileged, Emma Frost didn't need her mutant powers to succeed in the world, but she still took advantage of them. Her telepathic powers won her an invitation to the notorious HellFire Club, where she rose in rank to become the White Queen. There she started a school for mutants and clashed with the X-Men with her contentious curriculum. After a tragedy killed most of her students, Emma decided that teaching for the Xavier School for Gifted Youngsters and joining the X-Men was a better use of her gifts.''
* ActionGirl
* BadassCape: White and flowing; Emma clearly also has the RequiredSecondaryPowers of keeping it spotless throughout battle.
* BareYourMidriff: Her default Modern costume.
* BlondesAreEvil: Played with, given her HeelFaceTurn in comics after being a long-time X-Men villain. She is not the nicest or most upfront of individuals, and Fury actively distrusts her until the end of Spec Ops 2.
* CombatStilettos
* CulturedBadass
* IceQueen: [[DefrostingIceQueen In fact, impressing her was the entire point of the Spec Ops she was recruited in.]]
* ImpossiblyLowNeckline: Also in her Modern costume.
* ImmuneToBullets: Her diamond form allows her to anticipate what could be a lethal blow and take minuscule damage instead.
* LadyOfWar: She looks gorgeous, even when she's kicking enemies in the face.
* LovableAlphaBitch: Is snarky and condescending, and has questionable motives, but more than willing to help S.H.I.E.L.D. out. Psylocke even tells Fury to stop suspecting Emma's intentions when she assists in the tracking of some Unstable [=ISO-8=].
* MindRape: Her "Psychic Tap" attack, which inflicts Mental Anguish onto a target.
* PowerUp: "Unlock Potential" wipes off almost all nasty debuffs and raising stats for one round. Her Phoenix Five "Cosmic Power" has this as a chance passive, making it very invaluable in combat.
* PsychicPowers: Of course.
* RecurringCharacter: She is a semi-regular extra member of MissionControl, whenever telepathic powers and/or the Hellfire Club is involved.
* StoneWall: with her Diamond Body passive, she can take less damage from an incoming attack; however, this would leave her vulnerable to the next attack until her turn comes up, or follow up attacks.
* {{Stripperiffic}}: Her Phoenix Five outfit.

-->"A pleasure to make your acquaintance, Agent. I'd like you to know I will always be fully truthful with you. That last sentence being the exception."

->''Very little is known about the cunning thief called Fantomex, mainly due to his penchant for telling lies and creating telepathic illusions. Created by the same weapons program that produced Wolverine, Fantomex was artificially evolved in a virtual reality domain called 'The World.' This experience left him with super-human reflexes, marksmanship, and discipline. Combined with his sentient techno-organic ship E.V.A., Fantomex is a dangerous enemy...and possibly an even more dangerous ally.''
* AssistCharacter: Fantomex's external nervous system, E.V.A., appears in 2 of his attacks: "Allons-y" (where he rides it and shoots at enemies) and "OVNI-E.V.A." (where it grows to a huge size and mangles opponents with tentacles). After the 1st use of "Allons-y", E.V.A. appears by his side for the rest of the match, and has a chance to do follow-up or counter attacks.
* BadassLongcoat: His awesome white duster.
* ConfusionFu: Has the ability to cause enemies to attack each other, as well as an evasive passive.
* ConsummateLiar: As stated in his bio.
* {{Fauxreigner}}: Pretends to be French even though he is technically British. Hill and Fury calls him out on this.
* GratuitousFrench: All his attacks have French names that are coincidentally [[ShoutOut Shout Outs]].
* GunsAkimbo
* MasterOfIllusion: The gist of his mutant powers, along with his complete dishonesty.
* SelfProclaimedLiar

!!Hank Pym
-->"I know I'm not the easiest man to work with, Agent. But I also know I have a lot to contribute to your cause. If you want me on board, I'm yours"

->''Dr. Henry "Hank" Pym is quite possibly the smartest man in the world, though his battles with mental illness have kept him in the shadow of Tony Stark and Reed Richards. His discovery of the Pym Particle, which causes matter to grow or shrink tremendously, is chief among his many scientific achievements. Through many identities, including Ant-Man, Giant-Man, and Goliath, Pym has always used his genius to fight injustice, no matter the size.''\\
''Main article: Comicbook/{{Ant-Man}}''
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: His costume subtly invokes the ant, and two of his moves exploit his ability to shrink to miniscule size.
* AssistCharacter: Hank Pym's Army of Ants attack summons a huge swarm of flying insects, one of which he rides on.
* AwesomeByAnalysis: His 'Smartest Man in the Room' passive grants him additional attack advantages as each round passes, as he analyses the combat situation.
* BadassBookworm: He has a specific 'Smartest Man in the Room' passive which can be shared with fellow genius Iron Man, albeit with him rebutting his Analysis. Much like Mr. Fantastic, he also relies more on changing his body than on being inherently built.
* {{Determinator}}: He was going to build Ultron, no matter what stood in his way.
* FlechetteStorm: If ants count as small projectiles, his "Army of Ants" attack certainly qualifies.
* GeniusBruiser
* GiantFootOfStomping: "Bug Squashing," which looks about how you'd expect.
* HeroWithAnFInGood
* InsufferableGenius: Very intelligent and not afraid to let you know it.
* {{Jerkass}}: He's brilliant, but he's not very nice. Even [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold Stark]] gets a bit annoyed with him. (Although to Hank's credit, he acknowledges that he is difficult to work with during his recruitment dialogue.)
* SizeShifter: With the help of Pym particles, which his body can naturally generate, he can either grow or shrink.
* SpeaksFluentAnimal: Can summon ants to his aid, through his headpiece.

-->"Thanks for the invite. Looks like a fun party."

->''Orphaned at a young age, Clint Barton became a circus performer specializing in feats of marksmanship. After seeing Iron Man in action, he reinvented himself as a costumed vigilante and became a criminal before approaching Tony Stark, who sponsored him as a member of the Avengers. He possesses near-perfect accuracy with a wide variety of ranged and hand-to-hand weapons, and has designed a number of custom arrows for different battlefield situations.''\\
''Main article: {{Hawkeye}}''
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: A subtle hawk theme, mostly emphasizing his pinpoint accuracy.
* AnnoyingArrows: A single arrow doesn't hurt much, unless he decides to go rapid fire on any targeted opponent.
* ArrowsOnFire: The Incendiary Arrow, one of the many trick arrows that Heroic Age Hawkeye can shoot.
* BadassNormal: His only true powers are his keen eye and ingenuity with arrows.
* BeamSpam: An offshoot of this trope. His Rapid Fire passive allows him to fire a LOT of arrows if proc'd enough.
* BottomlessMagazines: His quiver never runs out of arrows.
* CoupDeGrace: Heroic Age Hawkeye can kill off near-death enemies (for good) with his randomly-drawn Adamantium arrows, bypassing "resurrection" effects in the same manner as X-23's "Assassin's Strike."
* ConfusionFu: Heroic Age Hawkeye, who pulls random Trick Arrows to apply various debuffs to a foe. If the player's lucky, a foe afflicted with Pinpoint Target would be barraged with several Trick Arrows, applying a large slew of debuffs in a single round.
* DeadpanSnarker: Unless you threaten his love interest...
* [[DeathOfAThousandCuts Death with a Thousand Shots]]: Especially in his Heroic Age outfit. Even if a target manages to survive the first rain of arrows, he/she will probably go down on the next turn under the resulting stacks of debuffs.
* ImprobableAimingSkills: Being a master marksman, his attacks ''almost'' never miss and have a high crit chance.
* ItsPersonal: Clint takes Mockingbird's disappearance very, very seriously, swearing to rescue her personally and successfully doing so [[BeatTheCurseOutOfHim after defeating her while she is brainwashed]].
* {{Multishot}}: His Arrow Volley attack has him shooting three arrows at once.
* RainOfArrows: His "Arrow Volley" skill allows him to launch three arrows at once, each hitting one target. The "Rapid Fire" passive allows him to do a sequential rain of arrows on a targeted opponent.
* TrickArrow: His "Loaded Quiver" passive has 12 different arrows Clint can pull out randomly per shot, inflicting up to 2 debuffs per arrow type.

-->"Whether wrought by my hand or yours, chaos is my coin, Agent. And I foresee great profit from our alliance."

->''This misfit of Asgard, forever carrying a grudge over the death of his father and the Aesir's love for Thor and Balder, inadvertently inspired the creation of the Avengers during one of his plots to destroy his step-brother Thor. A trickster and would-be usurper, Loki schemes constantly, and has allied with Dr. Doom in his recent plots against the Avengers and his hated brother.''
* AffablyEvil
* BackStab: His Lie-Smith passive gains chance to avoid attacks and then counter by stabbing the enemy in the back with his scepter. Just like what he did to Coulson.
* BadassLongcoat
* {{Bishonen}}: Given that his LB hero sprite is based off the Avengers movie Loki, you knew this was going to be in effect
* BrainsEvilBrawnGood: in comparison to Thor
* CainAndAbel: The Cain to Thor's Abel.
* ChekhovsGag/[[ChekhovsGun Gun]]: Loki's Sceptre is featured as a prize for the daily roulette a couple of weeks before [=SpecOps=] 14 began, and roughly around the same time that Loki was announced as the next Lockbox prize.
* ConfusionFu
* DeadpanSnarker
* ForTheEvulz: The reason why he joined the Syndicate is simply because he likes to watch mayhem and chaos among the humans.
* GodOfEvil
* HannibalLecture: His Comic Book Collection story is basically a big one.
* InferioritySuperiorityComplex
* MasterOfIllusion: Used to great effect in some of his boss battles, notably in the Valkyrie Spec Ops, where illusionary versions of him would pop up in regular minion fights and shatter upon hitting them a couple of times.
* {{Narcissist}}: So much so that he would rather have you to believe that you're joining ''him'' rather the other way around.
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* SquishyWizard
* TokenEvilTeammate
* TheTrickster
* TheUnfavorite
* VoluntaryShapeshifting
* WeakButSkilled: His attack and defense stats are quite weak but he some-what makes up for it with his abilities of evading attack, making enemies attack each other and reversing buffs/healing effects.

-->"Let us be clear, Agent. I will work with you so long as our goals coincide. After that...we shall see."

->''Growing up in Nazi Germany, Max Eisenhardt could do nothing as his family was rounded up and murdered. After discovering his mutant ability to control and generate magnetic fields, he fiercely dedicated himself to saving mutantkind from the same fate, no matter the methods or the cost.

* BadassCape: Dark purple, on his shoulder plate.
* BadassGrandpa: He's about the same age as Professor X and he looks quite ripped.
* BarrierWarrior: Utilises his famous force field powers in-game, both as a hero and a villain. He can cast shields over the entire team, generating an extra turn when a shield is broken.
* CoolHelmet
* ElementalBarrier: His force fields comprise of electromagnetic energy.
* ButNotTooEvil: Magneto is the first to undergo this treatment, being an obvious candidate after the Red Skull joined the Syndicate at the end of Chapter 10. [[spoiler:It turns out that the "Magneto" who was creating mutant test subjects was actually Mystique.]]
* EvenEvilHasStandards: Both the Red Skull and [[spoiler:Mystique's plan to forcibly mutate all of Manhattan]] were too much for him.
* FlyingFirepower: Flies and blasts his foes with ranged magnetic attacks.
* GeniusBruiser
* HeelFaceTurn: The aforementioned events (as well as the player collecting the 8 lockboxes necessary) lead to him joining up with SHIELD.
* KnightTemplar: He reveals that he joined the Syndicate to protect his fellow mutants in the wake of the Pulse. Still, it's hard to ignore the fact that he injected innocent human test subjects with Iso-8-tainted Mutant Growth Hormone and drove many of them insane. Then we find out [[spoiler:it was Mystique in Magneto's guise who was responsible for those experiments]].
* PsychicBlockDefense: His signature helmet blocks out psychic attacks completely.
* ReasonableAuthorityFigure: Even though his reputation was suffering, he held off on turning against [[spoiler:Mystique]] until he had proof of her activities.
* YouWillNotEvadeMe: after the Epic Boss battle of 2.2.6, Magneto traps Sugar Man in a graviton well so that he won't escape, whether or not Sugar Man actually did use [[VillainExitStageLeft Shrinkage]] in the battle.

--> "I know the rest of the team thinks I'll betray you. I don't care. You stand by me, and I'll stand by you."

->''Dr. Karla Sofen originally became a psychologist not to help others, but to manipulate them. When the original [[LegacyCharacter Moonstone]] became her patient, Karla convinced him to give up the Kree Lifestone he had stolen. Karla then absorbed the stone herself, gaining the powers of flight, intangibility, gravity manipulation, and more. Her recent signs of reform may be genuine...or may simply be another psychological power play.''
* ActionGirl
* ArchEnemy[=/=]EvilCounterpart: To Ms. Marvel.
* BlondesAreEvil
* ChargedAttack: Her Big Bang attack requires one turn before using and on the next round must be first action she uses or she must recharge.
* DeathOrGloryAttack: Big Bang requires one round to charge up(she cannot protect or counter in this state) and another round to actually. These actions must be the first and only action she does in both rounds. Better hope she doesn't get K.O.'d before then.
* FlyingBrick
* GravityMaster: Her LV 6 move Gravity Syndrome applies Heavy debuff to all enemies, making flying characters no longer immune to ground attacks and while applying Gravity Well to all allies, increasing damage of melee attacks.
* HannibalLecture: She loves handing out these.
* {{Intangibility}}: Her LV 2 move Blinding Attraction gives her Phased for two rounds.
* LightEmUp. To an extent
* LightIsNotGood
* [[ManipulativeBastard Manipulative Bitch]]
* PsychoPsychologist As stated in her bio she's a psychologist who only manipulates others. Before battle she tends to talk her enemies as if their her clients. During her Comic Book Collection story, she treated her interview as session with the Agent.
* StatusBuffDispel
* TokenEvilTeammate
* WarriorTherapist: Her passive Psychological Manipulation, has chance to apply Cower, Distracted, Disoriented, Intimidated, or Shell Shocked when any enemy attacks.

!!Mr. Fantastic
-->"Whatever our enemies think they're doing with Iso-8, we'll do them one better."

->''Reed Richards had the brains, the money, and the drive to build a spaceship in his spare time. He could never have predicted that a burst of cosmic rays would hit and grant him the power to stretch his body into any shape. Still a brilliant scientist, Reed is also the leader of the Fantastic Four.''
* AlliterativeName
* AwesomeByAnalysis: His "Critical Thinking" passive grants him a chance to place "Weak Point" debuffs on his opponents by pinpointing their weaknesses, guaranteeing a hit and crit on an ally's next attack.
* BadassBookworm: He's the scrawniest-looking member of the lot of heroes, but thanks to his bending abilities he can shape himself into making a bigger impact, especially his "Tumble" move which turns him into a human wheel.
* GadgeteerGenius
* InsufferableGenius: Dedicated obsessively to science throughout the game, to the extent of having NoSocialSkills at times. Even his wife comments that she sometimes has to translate his tech speak into LaymansTerms.
-->'''Tony Stark''': Pym isn't the most lovable guy, is he? But compared to Reed, he's the life of the party.
* LifeDrain: "Bifurcator" will cut an enemy's health by about 50% (30% for bosses) and give the rest of the party a Stamina boost.
* PercentDamageAttack: "Bifurcator" inflicts a debuff which reduces an enemy's health by a percentage based off their current amount, and thus cannot be used as a FinishingMove.
* RollingAttack: "Tumble".
* RubberMan: His combat style takes advantage of his ability to stretch and flex his body in any direction. This can also help him evade attacks and take less damage.
* ScienceHero: The only hero in-game who ''uses a homemade gadget as an attack'', "Bifurcator".
* SuperIntelligence: Depicted in-game as the go-to authority for all things scientific, with Iron Man, Beast and Hank Pym playing second fiddle.

-->''General "Thunderbolt" Ross's obsession with destroying the Hulk led him to undergo gamma ray treatments himself, transforming him into the fearsome Red Hulk. With all of the Hulk's strength, plus energy-absorption and heat generation, he went mad with power and attempted to rule the country. After realizing he has become what he hated most, he now seeks redemption as an Avenger.''\\
''Main article: ComicBook/RedHulk''
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation: An outlandish red skin hue, combined with black nails.
* TheAtoner: Though he generally doesn't seem like one in game so far
* ChargedAttack: His "Heat Generation" passive, which he gains Heat each round and whenever Red Hulk is attacked.
* ColonelBadass
* GeneralRipper: His obsession to destroy the Hulk had led him to "hulkify" himself. [[HeWhoFightsMonsters Once he realized what he'd become]], he sought atonement by becoming an Avenger.
* GeniusBruiser: The Red Hulk has all of a Hulk's might, combined with General Ross's cunning military tactics.
* {{Jerkass}}: As stated in a deploy, He isn't nicest guy in the world. One prominent example of this is shown in his dialogue between him and Hulk before their fight in Spec Ops "Game On":
--->'''Hulk''': Bring it Ross.\\
'''Red Hulk''': Want me to say goodbye to Betty for you, freak? Not that she'll miss you.
* LifeDrain[=/=]ManaDrain: When protecting allies with 'Bulwark', his Absorb Energy buff drains both health and stamina from opponents.
* ManOnFire: The "He's on Fire" passive that activates when Red Hulk is at 70% Heat, adding the PlayingWithFire atttribute to his attacks.
* MilitarySuperHero
* MyBloodRunsHot
* SlasherSmile
* TakingTheBullet: Can protect allies using his 'Bulwark' attack.

->''Though she is nominally Tony Stark's executive assistant, Virginia "Pepper" Potts effectively runs Stark Industries. After nearly dying in an explosion, she was infused with cybernetic implants that allowed her to interface with her own variant of the Iron Man armor. Refusing to become a living weapon, Pepper's armor focuses solely on defensive systems, giving her incredible search-and-rescue abilities.''
* ActionGirl
* BadassInDistress: When Stark Tower is under attack by A.I.M. in Spec Op 9, Pepper is the only individual in the vicinity with the Agent. She then suits up in her Rescue armor for the first time despite her reservations, and is successful in defending the building from multiple waves of attacks with only the Agent's help [[BarrierWarrior (and despite the fact that her armor is primarily non-offensive)]]. Later, it turns out that she had been secretly practising control of the powered armors with Rhodey's help, using Tony's old suits.
* BarrierWarrior: Can create "Reconstruction Matrix" shields that remove debuffs, heal and mitigate damage. Additionally, when protecting allies, she can preemptively generate additional repellent shields. She even attacks by battering an opponent with her shield, and deals extra damage when she has active shields.
* BeehiveBarrier
* BerserkButton: Don't dismiss her as being just 'Tony Stark's secretary'. Crimson Dynamo and Whiplash found this out the hard way.
* CombatMedic: Arguably the most outright example in-game, as her moveset is primarily supportive. She can remove a debuff from her allies every round through her "Panacea Response" passive, as well as clear most of them and heal with "Reconstruction Matrix".
* {{Cyborg}}
* PoweredArmor
* StatusBuffDispel: Her "Status Reset" ability, which can also negate any debuffs inflicted on her.
* TakingTheBullet: Can protect her allies against attacks with "Protector Protocol".
* TechnicalPacifist: Her lone attack is a quick flyby skirmish which hits an opponent with the shield around her armor (probably included only for gameplay reasons). She makes it clear that she thinks of herself as combat support and defense.
* WhiteMage

He tries to act as liaison between the difficult Stark and the equally prickly top brass of the US military.''\\
''Main article: Comicbook/WarMachine''
* AwesomeByAnalysis: With his "Strategic Analysis" passive, Rhodey has a chance to the Targeted debuff on attacking opponents, guaranteeing hits and crits against them.
* BarrierWarrior: His Iron Patriot outfit, besides granting upgraded abilities, give Rhodey's armor a chance to generate a preemptive shield with the "Reactive Shield Charger" passive.
* BlackBestFriend: To Iron Man.
* ChargedAttack: A variant; Rhodey builds up Charged Capacitor stacks each round, with each stack allowing him to fire "Repulsor Ray" or "Minigun Barrage" consecutively until depleted.
* DeathOrGloryAttack: "Overcharge" grants Rhodey hugely increased damage on his next turn, but subsequently drains all his stamina and makes him unable to gain Charged Capacitor stacks, temporarily preventing subsequent use of "Minigun Barrage" or "Repulsor Ray".
* DeadpanSnarker: It's a WorldOfSnark, but he seems to take special delight in pulling Tony's strings.
-->'''War Machine''': Prime-class Sentinels, rendered nonfunctional as ordered. Mr. Stark. Sir.\\
'''Tony Stark''': If I didn't know you to be a man lacking a sense of humor, Rhodey, I'd think you were making fun of me.
* FlyingFirepower
* GrandTheftPrototype: [[spoiler:a hijacked Iron Patriot serves as the requisite Epic Boss of [=SpecOps=] 9.]]
* GunshipRescue: Original Armor War Machine will call in an airstrike after three turns.
* HoverTank: The best way to describe the essence of War Machine in-game. On a great turn (fighting against a Blaster character, have all 3 Charged Capacitors and Overwatch available) War Machine can deal ludicrous amounts of damage either to the entire opposition or single opponents. His Iron Patriot costume only increases the damage with his Radiation debuff. And people complain about Rescue....
* MilitarySuperhero: Is highly obedient to the chain of command, military-style.
* MoreDakka: His "Minigun Barrage", which can even fire up to 3 times depending on how many Charged Capacitors stacks he has at the moment. His Iron Patriot alternate replaces this with the "21-Gun Salute", with an additional hit and the Radiation Exposure debuff.
** If Iron Patriot holds off using any ammo-dependent attack until the 2nd round of a fight, he can theoretically fire 126 hits at his opponents in 2 turns with just "Minigun Barrage" alone (with the use of "Full Overcharge" on the 2nd turn).
* LaserBlade: The "Blade Punch" attack. This is replaced by the "Plasma Blade" when suited up as the Iron Patriot, which has the ability to ignore resurrection effects.
* PoweredArmor: Like Tony Stark, he is an ordinary man operating a robotic combat suit.
* ShoulderCannon: That {{BFG}} mounted on his left.
* WearingAFlagOnYourHead: His Iron Patriot alternate suit, released as a tie-in for ''Film/IronMan3''.

* FutureBadass
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: When he goes into "T-O Overdrive".
* MultiRangedMaster: Proficient with an arsenal of different-sized guns.
* NinetiesAntiHero: But of course.
* PowerAtAPrice: He has two movesets -- one is weapons/tech and the other is [[PsychicPowers psychic]]. To unlock his mental abilities, he has to lose enough stamina to go into "T-O Overdrive," which regenerates stamina but costs health every round.
** Due to a recent patch, this is no longer the case as he is allowed to change between Control Mode and Overdrive Mode at will and he no longer takes damage when he is in T-O Overdrive.
** An even newer patch allows the player to choose between switching to "T-O Overdrive" and Recharging, something that will massively change his play style
* PsychicPowers
* ShouldersOfDoom: Would you expect anything less?
* StanceSystem: Cable can switch from his default T-O Control mode to T-O Overdrive while low in Stamina, granting him a new set of abilities.
** Changed so that Cable can now switch to T-O Overdrive whenever the player feels like it.
* StealthHiBye: Stark complains in Spec Ops 7 that he "hates when (Cable) does that", when the latter pops in just long enough from the future to give a warning and pops out again. This seems to indicate that Cable is a habitual offender.

!!Daimon Hellstrom
-->"You're either incredibly brave or a glutton for suffering if you want me on your team, Agent. In the interests of friendship, let's say it's bravery. Count me in."

->''Seeking to acquire influence on Earth, the demon lord Marduk Kurios sired a son with a human woman. That son became Daimon Hellstrom, who rejected his father's plans, traveled to the infernal realms himself, and stole his father's Netheranium trident, which allowed him to tap into his own vast mystical abilities. In order to control the dark side of his heritage, Daimon became an expert in sorcery and the occult, as well as a powerful warrior in the fight against Demonkind.''
* AloofBigBrother: Satana sees Daimon as this, dismissing his attempts to reform his demonic heritage as pathetic while she wholeheartedly embraces being evil.
* AntiAntiChrist: Son of a demon lord, but one of the good guys.
* AntiMagic: His Netheranium Spire passive allows him a fifty percent chance to nullify magic attacks against all allies.
* AssistCharacter: Daimon can summon an Infiltrator succubus; the more debuffed he is, the more powerful the attack of his summon is.
* BlackMagic
* CombatMedic: Heals and prevents debuffs with his 'Purifying Flames' ultimate.
* ChainedByFashion: Has several chains dangling from his belt.

* HellBentForLeather
* {{Hellfire}}
* InstantRunes
* PlayingWithFire
* PowerAtAPrice: Gains power upgrades when the Burning and Dark Void debuffs are inflicted on him.
* ProngsOfPoseidon: Technically more of a devil's pitchfork, but the function is the same.
* StanceSystem: If he's inflicted with Burning and/or Dark Void his Level 6 move can extend to other actions.
* StatusBuffDispel: His 'From Hell's Heart' attack inflicts Soulfire, which removes buffs.

''Main article: Comicbook/DoctorStrange''
* AstralProjection: Not (yet?) part of his gameplay mechanic, but when he needs to leave the field it is usually because he is off speaking to someone else via the Astral Plane.
* BadassBookworm: Gets the "Dr." team-up bonus (he used to be a surgeon) and fights with decades' worth of acquired mystical knowledge.
* BadassCape: In his classic costume (pictured) he wears his traditional, high-collared Cloak of Levitation.
** MysticalHighCollar

* BarrierWarrior: Can use the "Shield of the Seraphim" to protect himself or one of his teammates. His Modern outfit gives him the ability to shield himself or his allies in anticipation of attacks, randomly, until he's taken out of the battle.
* CombatMedic: He has an all-team healing spell, "Teresing Boost," which can be a quick action if he has enough mystic energy stored.
* {{Determinator}}: He ''will not'' let anything from another dimension get past him and attack Earth.
* EnergyAbsorption: Acquires stacks of mystic energy to boost his endurance and take multiple turns.
* GentlemanSnarker: Can be just as irreverent as Tony but is far more subtle and dry about it. Seeing the two of them engaged in SnarkToSnarkCombat is highly entertaining.
* GlassCannon: Despite possessing a pretty well-balanced move-set including the ability to heal, raise shields, and increase magic attacks, his defense is absolute crud even with his Defender buff.
* InstantRunes: His "Vapors of Valtorr" spell.
* ItsPersonal: In Spec Ops 4, demonic forces attacked his home in Greenwich Village. The irritated him enough that he insisted on being the point hero for the boss battle (Baron Mordo), elbowing out Ghost Rider for the privilege.
* RecurringCharacter: He serves as a semi-regular extra member of MissionControl, as the go-to person for briefings whenever there's magic and/or hell-related matters occurring.
* SquishyWizard: Very much a GlassCannon, despite his ability to heal and raise shields.
* SupernaturalSensitivity: Can sense the approach or presence of Dormammu and similar otherworldly threats.

* AnnoyingYoungerSibling: To Cyclops's AloofBigBrother. At the end, when you recruit him, he remarks "Just don't expect me to bunk with Scott".
* ChargedAttack: His "plasma" attacks consume stored Cosmic Energy for increased damage.
* EnergyAbsorption: In his case, he can absorb a massive amount of energy at once and use it immediately, as well as build a stack over time.
* GlassCannon: As with most Blasters, he can dish out more damage than he can take. Less of a GlassCannon in comparison to, say, Dr. Strange and Storm because of his Cosmic Energy buffs which increase his defense and have a max of 5 stacks at any given time
* HairTriggerTemper
* HeroWithAnFInGood: Irritable, stubborn and overconfident. He is generally snappy throughout the course of Spec Ops 6, and insists that he is able to take out the Living Pharaoh, even when it's clear that the latter is feeding off his energy to grow stronger.
* PowerAtAPrice: Havok's 'Plasma Wave' attack is one of the game's most powerful moves. When paired with appropriate debuffs on an opponent, fully stacked Cosmic Energy buffs and a guaranteed critical hit (all of which he can set up on his own), it can epic overkill even in-game bosses. However, using this attack will give him the Kicks Like A Mule debuff, guaranteeing that he will miss his next turn.
** Thankfully, Havok was also given a new Uncanny Coordination passive to compensate, giving him a chance for extra turns when his allies attack and significantly reducing the drawbacks of using 'Plasma Wave'.
* StatusBuffDispel: Can do this with a Shattering Punch.

!!Human Torch
-->"About time I got in on this action. Let's giddy up!"

->''Teenage rebel Johnny Storm was bombarded with cosmic rays during the fateful voyage of Reed Richards' spacecraft that created the Fantastic Four, becoming the Human Torch. He can transform his body into a superheated plasma and project shaped flames from any part of himself. He can also fly and control temperatures in his immediate area. His sister, Sue Storm, is the Invisible Woman.''
* AssistCharacter: When clad in his Annihilus duds, he can randomly summon the Annihilation Wave.
* BarbieDollAnatomy: In his classic costume, he appears nude but featureless (and, of course, covered in flames).

* ElementalPowers: PlayingWithFire.
* EnergyAbsorption: Gains health from Fire attacks.
* FlyingFirepower: Literally!
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In his original and Annihilus costumes.
* PlayingWithFire: All of his attacks involve fire and combustion.
* WreathedInFlames

!!Iron Man
-->"We got it Fury. The Agent’s ready. Save the world. Yadda, yadda."

->''Visionary, playboy, billionaire, Tony Stark is one of the founding Avengers and - thanks to the constantly evolving Iron Man armor - one of the more formidable combat assets in S.H.I.E.L.D.'s arsenal. His [[KnightInSourArmor cynical demeanor disguises a deep belief]] in himself and the power of the human mind to invent its way out of problems.''\\
''Main article: Comicbook/IronMan''
* AdaptationalBadass: The Mark 42 suit puts on a much more formidable show here than it does in the film.
* [[AssistCharacter Assist Characters]]: While wearing the [[Film/IronMan3 Mark 42 alternate outfit]], he can call for remote-controlled Iron Man armors (limited only to the armors present in the game) to help out whenever an ally attacks or is attacked by the enemy.
* BadassBookworm: Since he's a fairly normal-build guy when not in his suit, especially since he has his faceplate lifted in his dialogue picture (see the Mission Control section).
* BarrierWarrior: Can create a regenerative Deflector Shield, and his Mk V Armor starts with an equivalent that also regenerates stamina. His Mk 42 Armor loses the shield-generating power, instead turning it into a chance passive.
* BeehiveBarrier: The appearance of his Deflector Shields.
* ChargedAttack: The more "Unibeam" is fired, the higher its subsequent damage will be. However, it must be fired every round, or else its power will be reset.
* ChestBlaster: His "Unibeam". The Mark 42 armor beefs this move into the "Heartbreaker Unibeam", which can destroy shields outright.
* {{Cyborg}}
* FlyingFirepower: All of his attacks are ranged blasts from his PowerArmor.
* GadgeteerGenius
* MacrossMissileMassacre: "Missile Barrage". It becomes "Missile Bombardment" when wearing the Mark 42 armor, which adds Burning and Bleeding, as well as being a Catastrophic attack.
* PoweredArmor: Arc-reactor empowered, to boot.

!!Ms. Marvel
-->"Make you a deal. You let me fly the Helicarrier, I'm in. Kidding. Glad to help any way I can."

->''Air Force officer Carol Danvers was caught in an explosion with the alien Mar-Vell. She survived and found that her DNA had combined with his to give her the ability to fly and the power to absorb and redirect practically any amount of energy.''\\

* ActionGirl
* ArchEnemy[=/=]TheRival: To Moonstone.

* CombatClairvoyance: Her Original Ms. Marvel costume grants Seventh Sense, which allows her 20 percent chance to avoid enemy attacks and gain an extra turn.
* DominoMask
* EnergyAbsorption: She gains stamina when hit by Energy-based attacks and increases the damage in her attacks. Her Level 9 ability is even called "Absorb Energy", and notably heals her when attacked by Energy-based attacks.
* FlyingBrick
* FlyingFirepower: Her skillset is a mix of this and LightningBruiser.
* LightEmUp
* MilitarySuperhero

-->"We have to stop the spread of Iso-8. If you can do that, I'm on board."

->''One of the original X-Men, Jean Grey has developed her native telepathic and telekinetic abilities to unheard-of levels as a result of her bonding with the Phoenix Force. As the avatar of that cosmic power, she has attained control over time and space, and can even resurrect the dead. The true extent of her powers has yet to be discovered.''
* ActionGirl
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: Has the big golden firebird emblem on her chest, which she also invokes in her Phoenix Fire attack as well as the aura for her Phoenix Five costume.
* AutoRevive: Unlike other death-cheating passives (which are chance-dependent), and other resuscitating powers requiring the use of a turn, Jean can passively revive anyone immediately after their health drops to 0.
* BackFromTheDead: [[MeaningfulName Phoenix]], infamous for repeated deaths and revivals, has a "Death and Rebirth" passive which guarantees that the next ally who dies will be restored to 25% health instead.
* BattleAura: Her Phoenix Five costume gives her a constant, Phoenix-shaped aura of fire.
* CleavageWindow: Her Phoenix Five costume.
* DeathActivatedSuperpower: "Phoenix Fire" is a devastating nuke almost guaranteed to hit all your opponents ForMassiveDamage, strip their buffs and leave them with a DamageOverTime debuff, as well as cleansing all of your team's debuffs. The catch? Jean can only use this attack after someone on your team has their HP reduced to 0, removing her "Death and Rebirth" passive. Timing the revival of a teammate and the use of "Phoenix Fire" is key to mastering (or defeating!) Phoenix.
* FlyingFirepower: Another literal example.
* GlassCannon: Was notorious for having dire Health and Defense, easily the worst amongst all starter (and even subsequent) heroes. Funnily enough, this property actually became ''beneficial'' after her revamp, as it helped her to die faster, revive herself and then unleash her terrifying "Phoenix Fire".
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: In her Phoenix Five alt.
* MindOverMatter: Invoked with her "Telekinesis" attack, where she hurls a huge rock at her opponents.
* PlayingWithFire: Her blast attacks are a blend of Fire and Psychic, which means they will still hurt enemies who are immune to mental powers.
* PowerMakesYourHairGrow: Her red hair is much longer and wilder in her Phoenix Five costume.
* PsychicBlockDefense: Her Mental Resilience passive lets her gain chance to block psychic attacks and take less damage from psychic attacks.
* PsychicPowers: She can mindlink with a teammate for protection, throw energy blasts with the power of the Phoenix, or simply lift an enormous boulder with her mind and drop it on you.
* StatusBuffDispel: Happens after she spreads Soulfire with Phoenix Fire.

!!Nico Minoru
--> "Wait, you want me to join S.H.I.E.L.D.? For real? ...Alright, but if you make me do any government oppressor-type stuff, you'll regret it."

->''The Pride was an organization of six supervillain married couples, dedicated to the destruction of all of humanity...except for their own children. Those children would prove to be their undoing, becoming a group of young heroes known as the {{Runaways}}. The leader of the Runaways is Nico Minoru, daughter of two evil sorcerors, and a powerful magician in her own right. She wields the Staff of One, a mystical weapon which allows its wielder to cast almost any spell they can imagine...but only once''
* BackFromTheDead: Can revive herself to full health and stamina whilst clearing all her debuffs once per battle.
* BlackMage: Most of her actions primarily focuses on dealing damage to the enemy and applying a lot of debuffs.
** BlackMagicianGirl: Through with some LadyOfBlackMagic elements.
* BloodMagic: See below.
* CastFromHitPoints: Can increase the potency of her attacks by inflicting Bleeding on herself. 'Kick Ass!' and 'Rock and Roll!' also require Bleeding on her to use.
* DarkIsNotEvil: She's goth, but she's not a villain.
* DeadpanSnarker: Not as much as everyone else, but still.
* ElementalPowers: Some of her Arcana abilities:
** AnIcePerson: "Freeze!"
** DishingOutDirt: "Rock'n'Roll!"
** PlayingWithFire: "Die in a Fire!"
* EmotionBomb: Her Fear Me attack applies Cower and Intimidated to all enemies.
* GothGirlsKnowMagic
* ItOnlyWorksOnce: Each of Nico's Arcana spells can only be effectively used once per battle. Repeated uses will deviate from the spells' intended effect, to say the least.
* LeaningOnTheFourthWall
--> ''But I mean it when I say thanks, umm...[[EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep What's your name? Agent...?]]
* MagicStaff: The Staff of One
* MagikarpPower: At early levels she is really easy to take down, but as more of her Arcana unlocks, she becomes increasingly more dangerous.
* PerkyGoth: It seems in this continuity she retained more of her original, happy self [[BreakTheCutie than she did in comics]].
* PowerAtAPrice: Much of her moveset is based off of whether or not she has (a) stack(s) of Bleeding on her character. Plus she gets a strength boost off every stack of Bleeding she has and also takes reduced damage from the Bleeding for what it's worth
* PowerFloats
* PowerNullifier: Her You Suck action applies Neturalized and Impaired, removing and preventing any stat increasing effects and makes attacks do twenty percent less damage.
* StanceSystem: Her Lesser Arcana and Greater Arcana abilities extends to multiple actions.
* StatusBuffDispel: While most of her actions inflict debuff(s) to the enemy, her ''More Dots'' attack's primary functions is to inflict a wide range of debuffs.
* SquishyWizard: Surpasses even Jean Grey as the lowest-health hero in the game.
* SuperEmpowering: "Kick Ass!", which grants an ally (or herself) and additional turn with a boost in attack and accuracy.
* UnpredictableResults: Using any of her Arcana attacks more than once per battle yields ''interesting'' results.

!!Scarlet Witch
-->"This Isotope-8 is fascinating, isn't it? I can feel its power resonating with my own. I will join you, Agent, and we can discover its mysteries together."

->''An orphan raised with her twin brother Quicksilver, Wanda Maximoff possesses a unique combination of mutant and magical powers. When persecuted for her probability-changing mutant abilities, the twins sought refuge with the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, unaware that Magneto was their father. Unhappy at being a villain, Wanda convinced her brother that they should join the Avengers to redeem themselves. Where the Scarlet Witch goes, chaos follows.''\\
''Main article: ScarletWitch''
* ActionGirl
* BadassCape: A red one attached to her bodysuit.
* ConfusionFu: "Hex Spheres" can make enemy attacks backfire, plus she has a "Reality Warping" passive ability which can cause enemy attacks to miss.
* FormFittingWardrobe: She wears a red leotard over a pink bodysuit.
* LadyOfWar: Her attacks are very graceful and pretty to watch. Pink energy bolts everywhere!
* LeotardOfPower: Worn together with pink spandex for added modesty.
* RandomEffectSpell: The DamageOverTime effects and debuffs after using Arcane Blast or Probability Field are entirely random.
* RealityWarping: Attacks have a 20% chance to miss her because of this passive power.
* SquishyWizard: Another GlassCannon, though her reality-warping powers make it more likely that her attackers will miss.
* UnpredictableResults: Basically the case for ''every'' aspect of Wanda's powers.
* WildCard: Her powers are somewhat unpredictable, especially "Probability Field," which may give an [[BlessedWithSuck unhelpful "buff"]] to a teammate or a [[CursedWithAwesome supremely useful "debuff"]] to an enemy. If you bring Wanda to a fight, you're bound to get at least one surprise.
-->'''Scarlet Witch''': That's the beauty of chaos magic, Tony. Nobody can plan for it. Sometimes not even me.
* WindsOfDestinyChange: Her whole schtick revolves making enemy attacks randomly miss or backfire, while granting them unknown debuffs and possibly giving your team buffs.

-->"Time is not on our side, Agent. We must act before our enemies control Iso-8. Count on me."

->''Orphaned as a young child in Egypt, Ororo Munroe traveled Africa as a young woman, when her powers over the weather began to develop and she joined the X-Men. She and T'Challa, the Black Panther, jointly ruled the ancient African kingdom of Wakanda until its destruction.''\\
''Main article: {{Storm}}''
* ActionGirl
* BareYourMidriff: Her Classic costume.
* ChainLightning: Storm's Lightning attack inflicts a Static Charge debuff, which drains an opponent's health as long as an electric attack is used against their allies. She can also spread Static Charge to all her enemies at once with Lightning, if she has the Elemental Mastery buff.
* DarkSkinnedBlond
* LadyOfWar: She is very elegant and her attacks resemble a ritual dance.
* ElementalPowers: [[ShockAndAwe Lightning]], fog, [[AnIcePerson ice]], and [[BlowYouAway wind]].
* FlyingFirepower: She stays clear of her enemies and sends lightning and ice down on their heads.
* HappilyMarried: To the Black Panther.

* FlyingFirepower
* GratuitousJapanese: all of his attack names and passives.
* PlayingWithFire

-->"I don't know what those creatures wanted with me...and thanks to you, I'll never have to find out. If you'll help me understand this power I have, I'll help you in any way I can, Agent."

->''This mysterious being appeared during Thanos' invasion of Earth. What he is and where he came from remains to be seen, but one thing is for certain: he holds tremendous power in his hands.''
* TheAtoner: Seeks to harness his new abilities for heroic purposes despite their macabre implications, and is determined not to be captured by the Black Order.
* BarrierWarrior: Can form Preservation force fields on allies, and starts a battle with such a field on him thanks to his Self-Preservation passive.
* CombatMedic: His Amber Field ability creates a Preservation field around an ally that blocks damage, removes and prevents debuffs, and heals when dispelled.
* HealingHands: Thane initially specialised in healing abilities. Then when Thanos came to Earth, his left hand turned out to be highly lethal instead, although he can still heal with the right hand.
* IAmAMonster: Experiences great despair after accidentally killing many with his newly-manifested lethal powers.
* KilledOffForReal: His attacks are all about manipulating life and death (the latter towards opponents, of course); Sealing Touch instantly defeats any opponent below 30% health, Black Hand prevents resurrection & healing effects, and enemies knocked out by Life and Death cannot be resurrected.
* MyGodWhatHaveIDone: When his new abilities first manifested, Thane accidentally killed others instead of healing them (as was the case with his original abilities).
* StatusBuffDispel: His Black Hand attack inflicts the Nanoplague debuff, which removes and blocks most buffs.
* TakenForGranite: His original abilities have something to do with the preservative abilities of amber; in conjunction with his newfound killing touch, his basic Sealing Touch ability petrifies and eventually stun opponents on its third application.
* TouchOfDeath: So powerful that Thanos, the Titan obsessed with death, is greatly enamoured by his abilities. [[spoiler:No surprise there since Thane is supposed to be the son of Thanos.]]
* WhatHaveIBecome: His reception towards gaining powers of death is understandably less than enthusiastic.

-->"Ultron gave me many powers, but the Avengers have given me the ability to choose how I use them. I choose to stand with you, Agent."

->''Ultron created his "vision of the future" as an android with the ability to modify his density, becoming either intangible or super-strong at a moment's notice. With the help of S.H.I.E.L.D., Vision broke free from his evil creator and joined the Avengers. Despite his analytical mind and artificial origins, he has proven himself to be a defender of humanity in all respects.''\\
''Main article: TheVision''
* AIIsACrapShoot: After being defeated, it was found out he has human brain patterns them he is reprogrammed to have a conscience and ultimately rebels against his creator Ultron.

* BrainUploading: He possessed the brain patterns of Simon Williams A.K.A. Wonder Man.
* ChargedAttack: Passively gains an Energy Charge every round, which increases the damage of his Blaster attacks.
* TheComicallySerious: Appears to be this, with his dignified and formal speaking style, but hints of a GentlemanSnarker seem to surface at times.
* TheComputerIsYourFriend: After his HeelFaceTurn.
* {{Cyborg}}
* {{EMP}}: Microwave Pulse acts as this when it applies Fried Circuits to targets with mechanical bodies, stunning them for an entire round and leaving them vulnerable to critical attacks.
* EyeBeams: Optic Beams fire lasers at enemy target and inflicts burning.
* FlyingFirepower: Literally, since he flies through manipulating his density and can shoot heat beams.
* GroundPound: General Relativity.
* HeelFaceTurn: You face him as a boss in Mission 1 of Spec Ops 8, before he teams up with you on the later two missions.
* IntangibleMan: Can Phase, either through his Density Shift passive or Intangible Fist ability.
* PowerCrystal: The Solar Jewel on his forehead absorbs solar ambient energy and can also shoot a beam much stronger than his Optic Beams that is guaranteed to crit against buring targets and exploits stun.
* RidiculouslyHumanRobots: Whilst appearing to be robotic, Vision is actually a synthezoid, with simulated human brain patterns and hence cognition. His sentient mind also leads him to turn against his creator, Ultron, at the end of Spec Ops 8.
* {{Robosexual}}: Hinted at with his team-up bonus with Scarlet Witch "Cyber" which means their romantically linked.
* SlaveMook: Was compelled against his will to fight alongside Ultron initially.
* SpockSpeak
* StanceSystem: He starts off as a Blaster, but can switch at will between that class and Infilitrator, with entirely different movesets with his "Interface Switch" Level 2 ability. The Blaster interface makes him a Ranged specialist, while the Infilitrator interface makes him a Melee specialist.
* SuperToughness: His Density Shift passive makes him immune to bleeding.
* WhatMeasureIsANonHuman: After the Scarlet Witch defeats Vision, Nick Fury and Tony Stark are bent on dismantling him completely. However, she appeals to S.H.I.E.L.D. not to do so, remarking that he is not a robot but a living being. She is proven right when further examination of Vision leads to discovery of his brain patterns.

''Main article: ComicBook/{{Ares}}''
* AnAxeToGrind: Used for his main 'Art of War' attack.
* BloodKnight: Goes wherever there is warfare to be had. He only joins up with S.H.I.E.L.D. in Spec Ops 12 after realizing that Dell Rusk and his Dark Avengers did not possess a true 'warrior's spirit'.
* CoolHelmet

* GroundPound: 'Crush Your Enemies'.
* MultiMeleeMaster
* MultiRangedMaster: Despite wielding 2 melee weapons in his hands, Ares is also perfectly capable of handling modern guns (and all forms of weaponry, in fact). He is the god of war, after all.
* SiblingRivalry: Often belittles Herc for being merely a demigod, and sees him as a nuisance.
* StatusBuffDispel: A catastrophic version, no less, with his 'Crush Your Enemies' ultimate.
* SuperHeroGods
* WalkingArmory: Switches between 4 weapons in combat.

-->"This world is a much better place than the one I came from. I intend to help you keep it that way."

->''The "M" branded over Lucas Bishop's eye is a stark reminder of the apocalyptic future he comes from. In his world, the Sentinels had imprisoned the entire mutant populace and set their sights on the rest of humanity. Bishop traveled through time to prevent the same fate from befalling our own timeline. with his mutant ability to absorb energy and redirect it into concussive blasts, he seems well-equipped to succeed.''
* {{BFG}}: One in each hand, in fact.

* DimensionalTraveler
* FutureBadass
* GunsAkimbo

* NinetiesAntiHero: Complete with bad hair.

->''After narrowly escaping death, Brian Braddock was offered a choice by the sorcerer Merlyn: the Amulet of Right or the Sword of Might. Lacking confidence in his ability as a warrior, Braddock chose the Amulet and became Captain Britain, the United Kingdom's greatest protector. Super-strong and nearly invulnerable, Braddock shares the call to heroism with his twin sister Betsy, also known as Psylocke.''
* CaptainGeographic: Gets bonus points for having his moves named after British clichés like 'Save the Queen' and 'Smashing', as well as having the British flag appear behind him when ''Merlyn's Gift'' is activated.
* CaptainPatriotic: Serves as a S.H.I.E.L.D. liaison for Britain, as he is the premiere superhero representing his nation.
* ChargedAttack: "Roar of Valor" is a variation, which increases all his stats for every enemy KO'd in battle. On the flipside, he loses a stack when an ally is KO'd.
* CulturedBadass
* FlyingBrick: He combines strength and speed.
* GeniusBruiser: He has a doctorate in physics and gets the "Dr." teamup bonus, but he's built like a truck and his attacks generally involve hitting the enemies like a brick wall.

* {{Troll}}: Granted, it was Coulson's idea to have him discredit a press rumor that was actually true, but giving Coulson's number to a flirtatious reporter was all him...
* WearingAFlagOnYourHead: A design that resembles the [[ Flag of the United Kingdom]] covers his upper body, with a smaller version on his cowl.

-->"Sometimes I am criticized for being too reluctant to fight. Now will not be one of those times."

''Main article: Comicbook/TheIncredibleHercules''
* BadassBeard
* BloodKnight: He's in this for the joy of the fight.
* BoisterousBruiser: Big. Loud. Fun-loving. Hits like a Mack truck. Herc is exactly the kind of hero you want around to lighten the mood.
* DivineParentage: The son of Zeus.
* FunPersonified: He doesn't take himself too seriously.
* NeverLiveItDown: in-universe, this is the basis of a teamup bonus between Herc and Constrictor, "Stink-Eye".
* ReallySevenHundredYearsOld: Herc's divinity is amusingly noted during an exchange with Tony in Spec Ops 6.
-->'''Tony Stark:''' ''Much appreciated. This is a historic district. Try not to tear it up too much.''
-->'''Hercules:''' ''A historic district? I remember the first log cabins around here. Your people have a strange sense of history.''

* BadassBeard
* TheBigGuy: He's noticeably tall compared to other heroes.
* {{BFS}}/CoolSword: Hofund, which is almost as long as Heimdall is tall.
* CoolHelmet
* FlightStrengthHeart: Heimdall's powers include preventing counterattacks, buffing his allies...and transporting all combatants to the Bifrost. Which sounds powerful, except this merely changes the fight background to the (admittedly delightful) Rainbow Bridge for a few rounds.
* TheStoic: Evident even in his battle stance, where he barely moves and seems rooted to the ground.

->''Child prodigy Bruce Banner became a weapons researcher for the US Army, where he was inadvertently exposed to the radiation of a prototype Gamma Bomb. This granted him the power to transform into the nearly invulnerable Hulk -- but at the cost of suffering the consequences of the Hulk's unthinking rages.''\\
''Main article: Comicbook/IncredibleHulk''
* AmazingTechnicolorPopulation
* BloodKnight
* ChargedAttack: "Hulk Smash," "Thunder Clap" and "Titanic Hurl" consume a charge of Hulk Up (see Unstoppable Rage, below) to do massive damage. When combined with the Bruiser class's "Enraged" buff, these can be devastating.
* CombatPragmatist: In his Grey Hulk costume, he's implied to be this. His Fighting Dirty passive animation has him throwing dirt at an enemy before their attack, inflicting [[StatusBuffDispel debuffs]] and then [[CounterAttack counter-attacking]] afterwards.
* GeniusBruiser: He is in his bulked up mode all the time, but retains more of Bruce Banner's normal intelligence and personality than the Hulk usually does.
* HulkSpeak: Used seldom, mostly in parody.
* UnstoppableRage: He gains stacks of Hulk Up when attacked, which increases his attack and accuracy. There's also the Warbringer passives that come with his World War Hulk alternate outfit. That passive gains the Hulk (and his allies) War Frenzy stacks when attacked, which also increase attack and accuracy.

He repeatedly sought revenge against his step-brother Charles Xavier and the X-Men, though lately he has straddled the line between hero and villain. Ultimately, Juggernaut serves nobody but Juggernaut.''
* BeamMeUpScotty: Juggernaut has never worked with the Brotherhood in the comics continuity, and it is unlikely that he'd be invited since he's not a mutant.
** Task 2 of Lockbox Quest in [=SpecOps=] 6 lists Juggernaut as a mutant as well, while mission 3 of chapter 8 states that he's not one.

The in-game bio identifies the Union Jack in Avengers Alliance as the original WWII combatant James Falsworth, who is even given the War Buddies teamup bonus with Wolvie and Cap.

The cosmic ray storm that created the rest of the Fantastic Four left her with the ability to become invisible and to project psionic force fields. She married Reed Richards after the founding of the Fantastic Four.''
* ActionGirl
* BarrierWarrior: The master. She can easily stack multiple shields on herself (depending on uniform) and put extras on the rest of her team. She can also use a force barrier as an offensive move to prevent an enemy from attacking.
* InstantArmor: In her Future Foundation suit, Sue and her teammates have a high chance to reactively create a dampening force barrier when attacked, reducing the damage taken from subsequent attacks.
* LadyOfWar: She is elegant in motion and attacks from range while showing enemies her BadassBack.
* [[OnlySaneMan Only Sane Woman]]: Of the Fantastic Four; Sue is the StraightMan to Reed's overly clinical and science-oriented demeanour, Ben's snarky irreverence and Johnny's hotheaded brashness.

* TakingTheBullet: His "Noble Sacrifice" passive allows for Nightcrawler to block single or area attacks at random.
* TeleportSpam: Since his revamp, his teleport attacks have a chance of a follow-up strike to enemies with debuffs.

->''Elizabeth "Betsy" Braddock is the twin sister of Brian Braddock, aka Captain Britain.

* AbsoluteCleavage
* ActionGirl
* AssistCharacter: Satana can summon a Tactician demon; the more debuffed she is, the more powerful the effect becomes.
* BlackMagic
* CoupDeGrace: 'Soul Kiss' drains an enemy's health, and has the Fatal Blow debuff as well.
* EvilRedhead
* ForTheEvulz: She knows that sucking out men's souls is bad, but nevertheless enjoys it because it gives her great pleasure.
* GlassCannon: With enough debuffs applied on her, she can dish out plenty of damage, but applying Bane and Sin on herself increases all damage dealt to her.
* HalfHumanHybrid
* HeelFaceTurn
* {{Hellfire}}
* HornyDevils: She is ''very'' suggestive in her dialogues.
* NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: Well, she does have 'Satan' in her name.

He learned a hard lesson when his indifference caused Uncle Ben's death, and since then has been a dedicated fighter for what's right. And what's funny.''\\
''Main article: ComicBook/SpiderMan''
* AllWebbedUp: Spidey can web up his targets, which reduces an enemy's attack and defense.
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing
* BoringButPractical: Maybe he's not as flashy or cool as the other 90 CP heroes, and it's kind of a weak slow starter, but he has the possibility to unlock two epic bosses and a premium mission, and when powered up with enough evasion/strength [=ISOs=] can decimate the rival team while countering every attack, and taking extra turns.
* DeadpanSnarker: But of course.
* FunPersonified: Your friendly neighborhood wisecracker.
* TakingTheBullet: Has a chance to protect allies from attacks, increasing the power of his next attack.
* WildCard: The above protect passive activates randomly.

->''Once a talented stuntwoman named Rita Wayword, Spiral was kidnapped and genetically transformed into a six-armed assassin by extra-dimensional aliens. The experience damaged her sanity but granted her potent magical abilities. Though both her motives and loyalty are questionable, Spiral's powers are such that having her as an ally is worth the risk...simply to avoid making her an enemy.''
* ActionGirl
* ConfusionFu: As befitting a dancer, AI Spiral can be unpredictable. Using either of her levels 1, 2 or 9 attacks would change her level 6 ability, opening up more options for her in battle.
* {{Cyborg}}: Due to her cybernetic arm implants.
* DualWielding
* DanceBattler
* DarkIsNotEvil: Like Satana though, her loyalty is questionable.
* KameHameHadoken: exhibits the famous release gesture when using Time Spiral.

* PowerNullifier: Flashbolt applies Depower to an enemy, making them no longer applying status effects for 1 round.
* UnwillingRoboticisation: She was the victim of this, which turned her into a six-armed assassin. Then later she did this to others while she ran the Body Shoppe in the Mojo universe.

->''A mystic ritual gave Greer Nelson razor sharp claws, enhanced senses, and the strength and speed of a tiger. But it also gave her a primal instinct that she has struggled to control ever since.

* CatGirl
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Fights barefoot, probably to take advantage of the long claws on her feet.
* NaturalWeapon: Most of her attacks involve rending her enemies with her claws.
* PettingZooPeople: Thanks to her tiger amulet. Her [=Marvel XP=] dossier clarifies that she can be a normal human whenever she wishes, but she likes her catlike form.
* {{Stripperific}}: Goes into battle in a blue bikini.

-->"You may not always see me, but I'll always be there, Agent. Count on it."

->''To avenge the murder of her father, Janet Van Dyne sought the aid of Dr. Henry Pym, better known as Ant-Man. Pym's treatments allowed her to grow or shrink in size, and gave the ability to fly and fire bursts of bioelectric energy.

''Main article: TheWasp''
* ActionGirl
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: Like the wasp, she stings and distracts her foes, and in three of her attacks she becomes tiny and flies with a set of grafted wings.
* AscendedGlitch: for a time, Wasp's attack list was suddenly turned into a vertical display, and fans assume that this is Playdom trying to test a new mechanic. Wasp's attack list display would later be fixed, and the vertical display would then be used for the "Multi-Function" passive present in a couple of new items (the Synthetic Cube and the Vigilante Toolkit) and Dr. Voodoo, and for certain StanceSystem-using heroes to change classes faster.
* [[GiantFootOfStomping Giant Fist of Smashing]]: Her "Fist Bump" attack.
* SarcasticDevotee: To Hank Pym. She likes to snark about him to their allies, but will defend and boast about him to their opponents.
* SizeShifter: She prefers to shrink, although she does grows to giant size for her "Fist Bump" ultimate.
* WingedHumanoid: Of the insect-wings variety.

[[MasterOfNone Generalists]] are neither weak nor strong against a specific class and are all-around heroes. They generally involve all five classes in some way, whether it's switching between them, removing them, or having adaptive counters to them.

'''Characters:''' [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Angel, Beast]], ComicBook/{{Mockingbird}}, ComicBook/MoonKnight, [[ComicBook/ThePunisher Punisher]], [[ComicBook/{{X-Men}} Rogue]].

[[folder: Generalists]]
-->"I may not be a true angel, but I can see the good in you, Agent. What wounds we find, we will heal together."

->''Warren Worthington III's life of wealth and privilege was changed forever when his mutation manifested and caused wings to sprout from his back. He joined Professor Xavier's School for Gifted Youngsters and became a founding member of the X-Men. Later, he was transformed by Apocalypse into an Archangel of Death, only recovering once Apocalypse had been defeated. To this day he carries the mental scars of Apocalypse's brainwashing, as well as the bio-metallic wings that replaced his feathers.''
* OurAngelsAreDifferent: Warren is not exactly an angel per se (and the metallic wings don't help), but he's descended from the angelic Nephilim race, which explains his healing powers.
* BackFromTheDead: The Benediction buff granted by Angel's 'Impositio Manus' move allows an otherwise knocked-out ally to be restored to 25% health instead.
** Subverted with his X-Force Archangel alts, with the replacement 'Death' attack dealing Fatal Blow and Famine causing the Despair debuff that prevents healing and resurrection effects.
* ChestInsignia: In his default costume, a halo.
* CombatMedic: His entire skillset is focused on boosting his team with buffs, giving them extra turns, or restoring health and stamina. The offensive power is mediocre at best, yet he can neutralize an attacker's class advantages.
** Completely subverted with his X-Force Archangel alts, which is all about preventing buffs and revival.
* PowerNullifier: His Essence Reading passive gives him the chance to preemptively place the Generalized debuff on attackers, removing class advantages.
** The Nanoplague debuff inflicted by his Archangel alt's 'Pestilence' attack blocks all buffs.
* StationaryWings: Averted. His wings flap back and forth constantly, even in his 'idle' animation.
* SuperEmpowering: All of his moves give himself and/or other allies random buffs.
* ThemeNaming: His skillset as X-Force Archangel are named after the [[FourIsDeath Four Horsemen of Apocalypse]], wherein Archangel had been a former Horseman of Death.
* WhatKindOfLamePowerIsHeartAnyway: Notorious for having flight as his only power in the original team until various revamps on his new mutant powers i.e. "healing blood", which reflects his moves in-game as the "team cleric".
* WingedHumanoid: ''The'' classic example in the Marvel Universe.

-->"''But just disease to luxury succeeds, and ev'ry death its own avenger breeds.'' - Alexander Pope. The luxury of Isotope-8 has its drawbacks, Agent. Let us work together to overcome them."

->''The name "Beast" may describe Dr. Hank [=McCoy=]'s bestial exterior, but a man of rare wit lies behind the fur. For the times when his genius intellect isn't enough, Beast relies on his enhanced senses, superb agility, and unflagging courage.''
* AwesomeByAnalysis: Grants an "Epiphany" buff to his team via the "Bleak House" passive when enemies attack, causing a guaranteed crit for their next attack.
* BadassBookworm: Kind of an odd example. He has his normal bulky beast build...yet all of his moves are named after books, and many of them involve reading from books or making speeches and soliloquies.
* ChargedAttack: His "Catch-22" passive grants him stacks of the "Call of the Wild" buff, increasing his attack damage as long as he does not directly use an offensive move.
* CounterAttack: The key to using Beast, as he is a passive rather than active attacker, is to build up his damage through the passive described above and allow him to counterattack opponents through either "War and Peace" or "The Grapes of Wrath".
* GeniusBruiser: Furry, Big, Super-strong, agile and Nobel-level intelligent.
* DoesNotLikeShoes: Might be "cannot ''wear'' shoes."
* HeterosexualLifePartners: With Wonder Man. They even have a special teamup bonus, 'Rad Bromance'.
* NaturalWeapon: He doesn't need any weapon to fight, just the claws on his hands and feet.
* PowerNullifier: The "Generalised" debuff blocks all class advantages.
* PettingZooPeople: Resembles the "Cat Beast" of 616 continuity.
* SuperEmpowering: His "The Sun Also Rises" move gives himself and other allies random buffs along the ability to counter-attack the next attack.
* [[YouGottaHaveBlueHair You Gotta Have Blue Fur]]

-->" I was once an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D., just like you. It feels good to be back."

->''Barbara Morse was researching a way to recreate the Super Soldier Serum when she was recruited by SHIELD. There, she trained to match her athleticism to her intelligence, Despite a lack of powers, her natural combat prowess has earned her a place on the Avenger's team.''\\
''Main article: Comicbook/{{Mockingbird}}''
* ActionGirl
* AdaptiveAbility: If Mockingbird is struck by a non-Generalist enemy, her class type shifts to her attacker's counter-class, [[HoistByHisOwnPetard which is also one of the best ways to take her down if you plan accordingly.]]
* AnimalThemedSuperbeing: She has a real mockingbird's ability to mimic; adopting the fighting stance to counter any class.
* AwesomenessByAnalysis: She can identify her opponents' Weak Point and thus do a lot of damage when she hits, even without superpowers.
* BadassInDistress: The plot of her Spec Ops involved having to rescue her.
* BadassNormal: She has no superpowers or special tech, just fighting skill and a pair of battle staves.
* [[BeatTheCurseOutOfHim Beat the Curse Out of Her]]: Is on the receiving end of this treatment, after she attacks Hawkeye while brainwashed in Spec Ops 1. It works.
* BrainwashedAndCrazy: In Spec Ops 1, she was abducted by the Hellfire Club and sent against the Avengers.
* GogglesDoSomethingUnusual
* ItsPersonal: While Hawkeye volunteers to avenge her against the Wrecker in Spec Ops 1, she tells him that this is her score to settle.
* MakingASpectacleOfYourself: While Mockingbird already had crazy goggles as part of her design, the game lovingly takes them even farther. Her sprite and dialogue picture has them cover half her face and puts strong emphasis on them, and her "Critical Intel" move uses a closeup on one of the lenses as its icon.
* StanceSystem: Can change her class when attacked by an enemy with a class, as well as when attacking after using "Critical Intel".
* StarCrossedLovers: [[WordOfGod According to Maria Hill in Mockingbird's XP Dossier]], her and 'fellow agent Clint Barton's relationship' breaks several fraternization clauses in their work contracts. In other words, they could be fired for their relationship. Downplayed, however, in that Maria Hill and Nick Fury apparently don't really care, so long as it doesn't interfere, in fact they're supposedly looking for a way to exploit this relationship.

!!Moon Knight
-->"People ask me how I can live like this. The risks, the madness, the constant fighting. I think we understand each other, Agent. There is no other way to live."

->''Marc Spector was brought back to life by Khonshu, Egyptian god of vengeance and the moon, to be an avatar of justice. At least, that's what Marc claims; leading multple lives and guilt over his mercenary past have fractured his sanity on several occasions. What is undeniable is that his skills at martial arts, marksmanship, and crime-solving make Moon Knight a formidable crusader against evil.''\\
''Main article: ComicBook/MoonKnight''
* BloodKnight
* ConfusionFu: unlike other heroes who use a StanceSystem, Moon Knight class changes ''automatically'' during each turn. There is no specific order for his class change like the Punisher or Omega Sentinel either.
* TheCowl
* DarkIsNotEvil
* DoubleConsciousness: As Marc Spector and as all of his other personas. This gives him a "Crowded" team-up bonus with heroes like Phoenix, Psylocke, and Fantomex.
* TheFaceless
* InTheHood
* ManInWhite
* RapidFireFisticuffs: Moon Knight's Fist of Khonshu attack can become this depending on the number of stacks his Retribution buff currently has.
* SecretIdentityIdentity: The life he's leading is hard on his sanity, to say the least.
* SplitPersonality: He has at least four alternate personas -- Captain America, Spider-Man, Wolverine, and Khonshu himself -- each with its own class and passives. The player cannot control which persona is on top at any particular moment.
* WildCard: As mentioned, the player has no control over Moon Knight's shifting personas, and it could be to the (dis)advantage of both the player and his opponent.

-->"You keep S.H.I.E.L.D. out of my way, Agent, and I'll keep putting bullets in every scumbag that thinks Iso-8 is their newest toy. Everybody wins."

->''Frank Castle swore a personal vendetta against all criminals after his family was killed by the mob. Neither hero nor villain, the Punisher is an expert at every form of combat known to man, fueled by an endless reservoir of cold fury, and completely unburdened by mercy or restraint.''\\

* BloodKnight: He's in the Alliance to shoot whoever needs shooting.
* CarFu: The Battle Van, which also happens to be his ultimate attack.
* CrazyPrepared: His "Always Prepared" passive, which gives him a random buff at the start of each round. Not to mention his ability to switch out to any class he chooses during any turn.
* CrusadingWidower: The driving force for Frank's RoaringRampageOfRevenge is the murder of his entire family.
* GunsAkimbo: In certain stances.

[[folder: Generalists]]
!!Bob, Agent of HYDRA
* ButtMonkey
* {{Mook}}: despite [[NominalImportance being named]], his moveset is identical to a standard HYDRA minion [[spoiler: before Deadpool gives him new weapons]]
* PoweredArmor: As a result of Deadpool's L33t3st Hax!!, complete with heated seats, moon roof, and chrome alloy cutting torches.
* PunchClockVillain
* WithFriendsLikeThese: During the Heroic Battle that involves him, Deadpool uses him as a shield.

->''An exiled member of the Faltine alien race, Dormammu plots to absorb and destroy other worlds from his home in the Dark Dimension. Dr Strange and other powerful sorcerers have kept him at bay--barely.''
* ArchEnemy: To Doctor Strange.
* BadassLongcoat
* BlackMagic
* CastingAShadow: His "Dark Projection" ability.
* DidYouJustPunchOutCthulhu: Whenever the Agent or any other BadassNormal delivers the finishing blow on him.
* DimensionLord
* EldritchAbomination
* EvilGrin: Wears a permanent one.
* FlamingHair
* GlowingEyesOfDoom
* HumanoidAbomination
* ImAHumanitarian[=/=]ToThePain: His pre-battle dialogue often includes lines about how much he'll enjoy torturing the opposing heroes or eating their souls.
* PlayingWithFire
* PureMagicBeing
* SpikesOfVillainy
* StanceSystem: He can change his class between Generalist, Blaster, Infiltrator, and Tactician.

!!Living Pharaoh/Living Monolith
->''Ahmet Abdol formed a cult around himself as the Living Pharaoh after discovering that he could absorb cosmic energy and form it into destructive blasts. When he absorbs enough energy, he can transform into the Living Monolith, a titan of nearly unstoppable power.''
* CoversAlwaysLie: a partial version: mission selections feature the visage of the Boss for each mission, a'la ''Franchise/MegaMan''. Living Pharaoh is the "cover" for [=SpecOps=] 6.3, even though in the actual Boss battle, he starts off in his Living Monolith form (although he can revert back to normal if the player plays his cards right).
* EnergyAbsorption
* GlowingEyesOfDoom: As the Living Monolith.
* OneWingedAngel: his transformation into the Living Monolith.

!!Group Bosses

'''Characters:''' [[ComicBook/AvengersArena Arcade]], [[ComicBook/GhostRider Blackheart]], [[ComicBook/TheMightyThor Kurse]], RedSkull, ComicBook/{{Thanos}}, [[ComicBook/TheAvengers Ultron]]

!!'''Tropes involving all Group Bosses in General:'''
* ColorCodedForYourConvenience: the Boss' class is determined by the color generated by the character: red for Blasters, green for Tacticians, purple for Infiltrators, yellow for Scrappers, and blue for Bruisers.
** Ultron's face
** The Red Skull's Cosmic Cube
** Blackheart's eyes
** Thanos' right hand
** Kurse's forehead
** Arcade's eyes and glowing hands
* DangerouslyGenreSavvy: Ultron's AdaptiveAbility can activate during battle, and he can change his class to counter the player team's class, making it bad news for players who bring a team who share the same class into the battle. When Red Skull and Blackheart summon flunkies, they would be the counter-class to the weakness the Boss' current class would be in. Thanos one-ups them by summoning either Proxima Midnight or Corvus Glaive for the same function. Blackheart also has a different Passive depending on each class, which would hinder effectiveness of the counter-class he'd be going up against. (ex.: as a Bruiser, he can pre-emptively counter long-range attacks, which is applicable for most Blasters; he takes less damage from {{Counter Attack}}s [Infiltrators' specialty] as a Tactician, etc.)
* TimeLimitBoss: a GB needs to be defeated within 3 days.
* VillainExitStageLeft

[[folder: Group Bosses]]
* AmusementParkOfDoom: despite all three [=SpecOps=] missions having familiar maps, the battle screens inexplicably change into surreal environments, which can be likened to the backdrop of pinball machines. Or, more realistically, a theme park. It's Murder World, after all.
* DeathTrap: Pretty much the entirety of Arcade's villainous schtick revolves around this trope. This guy lives to go the extra mile when killing his enemies. He's even outright stated that he gives all of his targets a VERY small percentage of surviving, just to make things that much more interesting. Though seeing as all the heroes have exploited this percentage every single time they go up against him, Arcade seriously need to stop doing this to be taken seriously in the Villain community.
* LargeHam: This dude SERIOUSLY loves the sound of his own voice. He goes on these epic speeches and monologues throughout the [=SpecOps=].
* LightIsNotGood
* PsychopathicManChild: Judging how much money Arcade has put into creating theme parks designed to kill people and how much joy he gets out of it, he certainly qualifies.
* RubeGoldbergHatesYourGuts: Invokes this with every one of his Murder Worlds.
* {{Troll}}: And how! Arcade is so much of a Troll, he's turned it into a career. He loves manipulating and killing people so much so that he doesn't even really care about the money at this point (though to be honest he never really did in the first place). This trope is invoked in all of the Group Boss battles as well, seeing as Arcade LOVES to put them debuffs and such on your team.

->''An omnipotent being of distilled evil created by Mephisto, Blackheart broke free of his demonic "father" and began his own campaign of soul-stealing, destruction, and maneuvering for the throne of Mephisto's Hell.''
* TheAntiChrist: He's the "son" of Mephisto, after all.
* ArchnemesisDad: Always seeks to overthrow Mephisto as ruler of Hell.
* TheCorrupter
* DamageSpongeBoss: Higher health and much more resistant to damage compared to earlier Group Bosses.
* EldritchAbomination
* FlunkyBoss: More often than not, it's his infinite hordes of summoned minions who will take down your team in a fight. His demons are in the counterclass of Blackheart's current counterclass for that fight.
* LargeAndInCharge
* ManipulativeBastard
* OneHitKill: Heroes marked with Burning Brand will be overkilled by Incendiary Blast on the next round.
* RedEyesTakeWarning
* StatusBuffDispel: His Infiltrator variation has an attack which removes and blocks any buffs from a hero.
* VillainExitStageLeft: Notable in that while he'll flee if not taken down after four rounds, his two henchmen that he'll summon won't follow suit and have to be defeated in order for the fight to end.
* VoluntaryShapeshifting

->''Algrim the Strong was Malekith's most loyal lieutenant. Abusing that loyalty, Malekith transformed Algrim into the monstrous Kurse, then convinced Kurse that all of his suffering was the fault of one Asgardian: Thor.''
* TheBrute
* TheDragon: to Malekith
* StatusBuffDispel: his Living Armor ability, usually activated a few turns before escaping, allows him to remove all debuffs and damage-over-time effects from himself.

!!Red Skull
->''Johann Schmidt's notorious skills in torture, espionage, and assassination made him the most feared operative of the Nazi regime. He is utterly devoid of morality or mercy, an inhuman embodiment of fascist evil. Newly resurrected by the Syndicate, the Red Skull has rededicated himself to his vision of a world crushed beneath his reign.''
* ArchEnemy: to Captain America
* BackFromTheDead
* FlunkyBoss: Summons HYDRA agents.
* GratuitousGerman
* ObviouslyEvil
* SkullForAHead
* TheSociopath
* ThoseWackyNazis

->''Born a mutant amongst the already-powerful Eternals, Thanos is one of the most powerful beings in the universe. He is utterly devoted to the worship of Death, and will not be satisfied until all life in the universe is extinguished.''
* AllYourPowersCombined: Omnipotence allows Thanos to gain bonuses from all the classes (example: the Tacticians' extra turn, Blasters' CriticalHit, etc.).
* ChekhovsGag: Omnipotence (both his attack and the buff it generates) sounds awfully similar to Omniclass, a "character class" Playdom created for an AprilFoolsDay joke, which involves another Marvel Mega-CosmicEntity, {{Galactus}}. Keep in mind what the Omnipotence buff does to Thanos.
* FiveBadBand: His ''Black Order''; Ebony Maw, Supergiant and Black Dwarf are dialogue-only villains in [=SpecOps=] 13.
** BigBad: Thanos is the main boss of [=SpecOps=] 13.
** TheDragon: Corvus Glaive
** EvilGenius: Ebony Maw
** {{The Brute}}s: Black Dwarf and Supergiant
** DarkChick: Proxima Midnight
* FlunkyBoss: His Tactician and Scrapper versions can summon Corvus Glaive and Proxima Midnight (respectively) and call them back indefinitely if they are eliminated from battle.
* FourIsDeath: The current members of the Black Order: Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight, Ebony Maw, and Supergiant.
* MeaningfulName[=/=]NamesToRunAwayFromReallyFast: His name is derived from the Greek avatar of Death '''Than'''at'''os''', which also reflects his fascination in courting Mistress Death.
* OmnicidalManiac
* OneHitKill: His Tactician Beam Blast inflicts 10,000+ HP of damage, practically killing any full-health hero.
* StatusBuffDispel: ''Black Hole''

->''After the Pulse, an intelligent anomaly was detected in worldwide telecommunications networks. Hoping to control it, Hank Pym gave the anomaly a body and a name: Ultron. It rebelled against Pym, using its new capabilities to attempt world domination.''
* AdaptiveAbility
* AIIsACrapshoot
* AntagonisticOffspring: Regards Hank Pym as his father.
* ArchnemesisDad: To the Vision.
* GlowingMechanicalEyes
* HoistByHisOwnPetard: As an embodied artificial intelligence who turned against his creator, he made a "son" in Vision -- an embodied artificial intelligence who turned against ''his'' creator.
* KillAllHumans
* KillerRobot
* RoboticPsychopath
* TurnedAgainstTheirMasters

!!The Mandarin
* ArchEnemy: To Iron Man.

* DiabolicalMastermind
* FaceFramedInShadow
* IKnewIt: in-universe, Tony apparently had suspected beforehand that he's the mastermind of the Extremis outbreak. He even actually said "I knew it".

!!Dell Rusk
* CorruptPolitician: Shown in Spec Ops 12 when he not only attempts to assemble his own twisted version of the Avengers, appropriately named the Dark Avengers, he also tries to disband Shield and when that fails, undermine all of their efforts. The entirety of Spec Ops 12 is to take down Dell Rusk.
* ForeShadowing: If anyone has read the current comics, you should have a good idea in store.....if not check out the internet. Believe me you'll be surprised. Read at your own risk.

!!Ebony Maw

* DarkChick: To Thanos.

!!Black Dwarf
->''Compared to the others of the Black Order, Black Dwarf seems almost jovial. This demeanor conceals an uncaring nihilism, an acceptance of Thanos' vision of universal death.''

->''Mysterious and unstable, Supergiant is a psychic parasite, feeding on intellect and controlling the minds of her victims.''
