    The Avengers 

The Incredible Hulk / Bruce Banner
Voiced in both forms by: Fred Tatasciore

Doctor Bruce Banner was turned into The Incredible Hulk after being exposed to gamma radiation in a freak accident. Initially, Banner found himself unable to fight his anger, causing him to transform into the beast and go on rampages, bringing him into conflict with other superheroes and the military, who believed him to be property. After life on the run from the military, Hulk has decided to go legit as a superhero and joined the Avengers. Since then, he has gained the ability to shift back and forth between Hulk and Bruce Banner at will.

  • Action Hero: Hulk does not think things through, he smashes things instead.
  • Arch-Enemy: Hulk is this towards Abomination.
  • Badass Baritone: As Hulk.
  • Badass Bookworm: As Bruce Banner.
  • Badass Normal: As Bruce Banner, he can still fight. He may not be as tough, but his wits might be all he needs.
  • Battle in the Rain: Hulk and Wolverine get in one against Abomination and Sabretooth.
  • Berserk Button: While Hulk is easy to anger, it would appear that knocking away his burger would be the most prominent.
  • Big Eater: Owing to his size, he constantly eats, and gets angry when Green Goblin knocks away his burger.
  • Demoted to Extra: The Hulk is at the forefront while Bruce Banner is barely acknowledged in the game (as he is in the three shows that emulate the Marvel Cinematic Universe, of which this game is also somewhat based upon). Banner at least gets certain context-specific lines in case the Hulk isn't in a situation, which is more than what the shows have done for him.
  • Disproportionate Retribution: He punches Green Goblin for knocking away his burger.
  • Does Not Know His Own Strength: Smashes several keyboards at Tony's place, and in a bonus level breaks a lot of speakers.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Hulk never wears shoes, since he doesn't need them.
  • Dumb Muscle: As Hulk.
  • Gentle Giant: While Hulk is easily annoyed, he's nice towards his friends, making tea for Tony in between missions.
  • Hair-Trigger Temper: Hulk, as is tradition, although Bruce Banner averts this.
  • Hulking Out: The Trope Namer. He can voluntarily change back and forth between forms.
  • Hulk Speak: As Hulk, given how he's the Trope Namer.
  • Jekyll & Hyde: Both personalities are decent people, but Hulk is definitely more violent and anger-prone.
  • The Juggernaut: Once he starts running at full speed, there is nothing that can stop the Hulk. He'll just either flatten or destroy anything that gets in his way (hitting vehicles won't even slow him down). Ironically, the same can't be said for Juggernaut.
  • The Klutz: Hulk cannot build things and sure as heck isn't good at not breaking them. He trashes dozens of keyboards at Tony's place by accident.
  • Large Ham: As Hulk.
  • Magic Pants: Changes back and forth between forms without his pants going missing. At one point, however, he rips them and needs to replace them.
  • Manchild: Hulk is not the most mature of people, getting easily frustrated with keyboards and loudly complaining about the rain.
  • No-Sell: The normal attacks of most mooks, including punches, cannot hurt him while he is Hulk. He's also immune to toxic waste and can walk through it with no ill effects.
  • One-Man Army: Hulk is physically the strongest Avenger.
  • Pummel Duel: Constantly gets into these with Abomination. He wins most of them.
  • Radiation-Immune Mutants: Hulk is immune to toxic waste.
  • Science Hero: Bruce Banner falls into this as a gamma radiation expert and very intelligent guy. Hulk, not so much.
  • Shockwave Clap: One of his crowd control moves.
  • Sitcom Arch-Nemesis: With Wolverine.
  • Split Personality: Banner and Hulk are two vastly different personalities in one body.
  • Super Strength: Hulk is the self proclaimed "strongest one there is".
  • Voluntary Shapeshifting: Bruce Banner can change into the Hulk at will, and vice versa.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Hulk wears no shirt at all, as he tears any of Bruce Banner's.

Captain America / Steve Rogers

Steven Rogers was formerly a sickly man that Jumped at the Call to fight for America in the Second World War, although he was rejected as unfit for duty. He was enrolled in a Super Soldier programme and raised to levels of peak endurance via a Super Serum that was since lost for good, since the scientist that devised it was assassinated. Captain America was then frozen in ice for several years, re-emerging in modern times as a superhero.


Thor Odinson is the prince of Asgard and son of Odin, the Allfather. Initially banished from Asgard to learn humility, Thor has since become a guardian of both Earth and Asgard, making him a member of the Avengers. Among the rogues gallery of the Avengers is his stepbrother Loki.

  • Badass Baritone: Courtesy of Travis Willingham.
  • Badass Beard: Drawn with one.
  • Badass Cape: In both of his skins.
  • Big Brother Bully: Used to be this to Loki, back in the day, although not to an extreme degree. This exchange before their final battle gives an example.
    Thor: Were we only children again, I would resolve this by giving Loki what you mortals call a 'wedgie'... But I fear the forceful elevation of undergarments will not save us now.
    Iron Man: I'd pay to see it, though.
  • Cain and Abel: The Abel to Loki's Cain, although Thor's not the most mature of brothers.
  • Drop the Hammer: His hammer, Mjolnir.
  • Enemy Mine: Loki and Thor ally against Malekith the Accursed in the side mission "Bro-tunheim".
  • Large Ham: Thor's never exactly been known for subtlety.
  • One-Man Army: As an Asgardian he's one of the toughest heroes in the game.
  • Royals Who Actually Do Something: Prince of Asgard and superhero.
  • Shock and Awe: His hammer can channel electricity by redirecting lightning.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: To Doom, when he corners him in the submarine, although Spider-Man's the one to set him up with the actual line.
    Doom: I won't share my plan with puny insects.
    Iron-Man: How about a god?

Iron Man / Tony Stark

Voiced by: Adrian Pasdar

Tony Stark is the head of Stark Industries, as well as the superhero Iron Man, who fights crime in a suit of Powered Armor. His initial reasons for doing so were in order to stop his heart from giving out after he was injured in a war by shrapnel, although which war is unclear for this incarnation. He's supposedly one of the richest men in the world, and certainly one of the most arrogant, but he's a good man at the end of the day.

  • Adaptational Badass: In two respects:
    • One of his suits of Powered Armor gets an upgrade. The Mark 42 armor was, in the films, extremely weak and not very durable. Here, it's able to deal with gold obstacles, is just as strong as the other ones and can't be damaged by Magneto.
    • Tony himself is able to fight Extremis soldiers without armor or even weapons. It's obvious that he needs Captain America's help for this, but it's a far cry from the films, where just one caused major problems.
  • All Your Base Are Belong to Us: Lampshaded after the Mandarin and Killian attack Stark Tower, doing a fair bit of damage to the helipad in particular.
    Tony: Why is it my tower can never stay in one piece?
  • Anti-Hero: Downplayed, but he's rather snarky and occasionally grumpy about the job.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Mandarin, and Killian also hates him deeply for some reason.
  • Attention Whore: Tony constantly waves to civilians if idle, and let's not forget that he built Stark Tower as a giant monument to himself.
  • Badass Moustache: His face has one.
  • Badass Normal: No superpowers, just a suit of power armor and his brains. Part of "Rebooted, Resuited" forces him to fight without armor against Extremis soldiers, and he actually does well, even though he needs Cap's support for it.
  • Brought Down to Badass: Tony loses his armor towards the end of "Rock Up at the Lock Up". It doesn't stop him briefly fighting off Extremis soldiers (with Cap's help, admittedly) out of it, using his wits and strength.
  • Crazy-Prepared: Tony has a suit of armor for pretty much every situation, be it dealing with Magneto or fighting the Hulk. He even has "House Party Protocol" as a countermeasure.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Tony hasn't lost his dry wit from other adaptations.
  • Flight: What most of his suits are capable of doing.
    • Not Quite Flight: The Hulkbuster suit can glide and has limited propulsion, so as to not make things too easy.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: In "Rebooted, Resuited", Mandarin turns Stark Tower's defenses against him and steals the Hulkbuster armor from him. Mandarin explicitly lampshades this by shouting about how he's turning his own weapons against him.
  • Honest Corporate Executive: Tony Stark is a superhero and a legitimate businessman.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Snarky and arrogant as he may be, Tony is a decent person and upstanding businessman.
  • Large Ham: Downplayed, but Tony does enjoy occasionally hamming it up, certainly with some of his idle animations.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Tony moves fast when he's in Powered Armor. This still applies when he's in the Hulkbuster armour, although he loses the ability to properly fly with it.
  • Look Behind You: In a cutscene in Marvel Super Heroes, Iron Man successfully pulls the "What's that over there?" trick on a flock of homing missiles.
  • Non-Idle Rich: He's probably one of the richest superheroes in the world.
  • No-Sell: Ordinary attacks cannot hurt him while he's in the Hulkbuster armour (a separate character for gameplay purposes).
  • Powered Armor: His "superpower", aside from being extraordinarily rich.
  • Science Hero: Iron Man specialises mainly in technology, and makes some awesome Powered Armor as a result.
  • Spot of Tea: Hulk makes him tea to help him work.
  • Superpower Lottery: His Mark 42 suit grants him the ability to overcome both gold and silver bricks, can melt ice and can fly. Plus, Tony himself is classified as a Smart character who can operate control panels, so when Iron Man is on your team, you'll be able to overcome a lot of obstacles.
  • Super Strength: The Hulkbuster armour grants this to him.

Spider-Man / Peter Parker

Spider-Man, a.k.a. Peter Parker, is a former high-school student that was bitten by a radioactive or genetically-modified spider on a high school field trip. This gave him enhanced strength and agility, as well as the ability to perceive danger and detect incoming threats. Shortly afterwards, his uncle and father figure, Benjamin Parker, was killed by a robber that Peter could have stopped had he bothered to. This taught Peter the lesson that with great power comes great responsibility, causing him to fashion a pair of web-shooters and become a superhero, eventually joining the Avengers.

  • Arch-Enemy: Spider-Man has the dubious honour of having three potential candidates or separate arch-enemies in this game; Doctor Octopus, Venom and Green Goblin are all in the game, and all have at one point held the position of Big Bad in the comics. In this incarnation, Green Goblin is ultimately his biggest rival.
    Green Goblin: What? No Spider-Man? Shame. I do so enjoy winding him up.
    Later, during some Boss Banter from Goblin.
    Green Goblin: This is getting dull without the Spider to keep me entertained.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: His puzzle-solving ability can be used to take down some bosses such as Kingpin and Venom.
  • Badass Bookworm: A science student (it's not made clear which level he's at), and a superhero.
  • The Chew Toy: His endless angst is played for laughs in this universe.
    Spider-Man: (in response to Nick Fury saying the world has a place for heroes like him) Like I have time for that. I have a trigonometry exam tomorrow, my aunt needs me to pick-up a dozen eggs and I'm drowning in angst.
  • Composite Character: This version takes a mix of inspiration from Earth-616 (endless angst) and Ultimate Spider-Man (younger than the mainstream Peter Parker).
  • Deadpan Snarker: Snarks that the Avengers are great at messing stuff up, after Sandman escapes them initially and forces him to get involved.
  • Evil Costume Switch: His symbiote suit is available as DLC.
  • Gameplay and Story Integration: Spidey cannot web-sling when at the SHIELD helicarrier, as there's nothing he could use to do so.
  • Gameplay and Story Segregation: Despite Spider-Man being one of the smarter heroes in the Marvel universe, he cannot use the terminals like Tony Stark and Black Widow can. Possibly justified by this version of Spidey being a little younger.
  • Hypocritical Humour: He has a go at the other Avengers, saying that the team in general is good at screwing things up. He's an Avenger too.
  • Nice Guy: Snark aside, he's a decent guy.
  • Science Hero: Spidey is a scientist, although he doesn't seem to have graduated just yet.
  • Vague Age: It's not explicitly stated just how old this version of Spider-Man is, though his offhand remarks about having exams and his own apartment would imply he's in college.
  • You Fight Like a Cow: Half of Spidey's banter is his insulting his opponents.


    The X-Men 

Professor X / Charles Xavier

Charles Xavier is a professor of genetics and also one of the most prominent mutants in the world. At a young age, he was friends with Magneto, only for their ideologies to clash and them to become enemies. After losing the use of his legs, Charles founded the X-Men and converted the Xavier Mansion into a school and sanctuary for all mutants.

  • Arch-Enemy: To Magneto.
    • Friendly Enemy: All things said, they're pretty cordial in spite of this.
  • Bald of Awesome: He has no hair.
  • Big Good: For the X-Men.
  • Demoted to Extra: Despite having some impact on the main story as the leader of the X-Men, he doesn't actually appear as a playable character in any story mode chapter, and is instead unlocked through a three-part side quest on the map like many of the more minor heroes.
  • Genius Cripple: He's an expert on mutants and also confined to a wheelchair.
  • Nice Guy: Professor X is a wise, friendly and protective person. When Magneto attacks the Mansion while looking for the Tesseract, his first concern is the safety of his students, prioritizing them over the reason Magneto is there.
  • Papa Wolf: Towards his students.
  • Small Steps Hero: See Nice Guy.

Cyclops / Scott Summers

Voiced by: Nolan North

Scott Summers is one of Charles Xavier's first mutant students, and the leader of the X-Men in the field. Scott is an accomplished combatant, and also the love interest of Jean Grey.

Jean Grey

Voiced by: Laura Bailey

Jean Grey was one of the original students at the Xavier Institute, and one of the original members of the X-Men. She is best known as an Omega-level mutant and telepath who may or may not have gone insane and turned into the Dark Phoenix, as well as the love interest of Scott Summers.

  • Action Girl: Jean is an Omega-level mutant, and therefore very powerful. For perspective, this makes her theoretically stronger than foes such as Magneto and Apocalypse.
  • Barrier Warrior: Jean is capable of creating force fields. It comes in handy when Spider-Man, Iron Man and Thor are trapped underwater and almost drown.
  • Battle Couple: With Scott, whom she fights alongside for most of "Juggernauts and Crosses". He eventually disappears to evacuate the students during that time.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Saves Spider-Man, Iron Man and Thor from drowning.
  • Curb-Stomp Battle: After taking control of Juggernaut, several Brotherhood mooks get utterly destroyed.
  • Flight: As Phoenix and Dark Phoenix, Jean can graduate from Not Quite Flight to this.
  • The Lancer: To Scott.
  • Load-Bearing Hero: When saving Spider-Man, Iron Man and Thor from drowning, she does this and therefore must be protected from oncoming Doombots.
  • Not Quite Flight: Jean can use her powers for levitation, but cannot fly very high.
  • Official Couple: With Scott.
  • Playing with Fire: As Phoenix and Dark Phoenix, her ranged attack changes from telekinetic blasts to fire blasts.
  • Superpowered Evil Side: Her Dark Phoenix form is available as a DLC Palette Swap.

Iceman / Bobby Drake

Voiced by: Yuri Lowenthal

Robert "Bobby" Drake, aka Iceman, is one of the original students of the Xavier Institute and an original member of the X-Men. He's known for being something of a class clown, but also for potentially being one of the most powerful mutants in history. His powers are mostly ice-based.

  • An Ice Person: His powers are ice-based.
  • Bald of Awesome: In his ice-form, at least.
  • Beware the Nice Ones: Bobby is rather chilled and laid-back, but when pushed he'll knock you out with little effort and even help take down beings like Juggernaut.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Iceman may be very goofy, but he's a powerful warrior. Outside sources for most adaptations indicate he's an Omega-level mutant, meaning he's very easily one of the most powerful mutants in the world but hasn't tapped into his potential fully.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Iceman has a cool wit to match his personality.
    Juggernaut: Don't you know who I am? I'm the—
    Iceman: We get it!
  • Fun Personified: The joker of the X-Men, and boy does he get some good lines.
  • Harmless Freezing: He has the ability to do this.
  • Literally Shattered Lives: A potential finishing move for frozen foes.
  • Moment Killer: He does this when he accompanies Hawkeye and Black Widow to the circus, ruining the former's chance to ask the latter out. Then Nightmare shows up.
  • Physical God: It's been revealed in the comics that he has the potential to be this, as his powers have over the years been redefined from "shoots ice" to "ability to do literally anything so long as it involves water". He lacks the ambition at the moment, though.
  • You Fight Like a Cow: Taunts Juggernaut a lot through his boss battle.

Beast / Hank McCoy

Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

Henry McCoy is one of the original members of the X-Men, and one of the oldest teachers at the institute. Originally, Beast looked more human, but he gradually mutated from human-looking to animal-like as he began to grow fur and more prominent claws. As well as being a teacher, Beast is a world-renowned biochemist.

  • Absent-Minded Professor: He doesn't seem to fully notice what's going on, scolding Jean and Iceman for running in the halls when Juggernaut is loose.
  • Captain Oblivious: See Absent-Minded Professor.
  • Genius Bruiser: Looking at him for the first time with no prior knowledge about him, you'd never guess that Beast was a professor.
  • Palette Swap: Gameplay-wise, he's identical to Wolverine sans his Healing Factor.
  • Skewed Priorities: He knows Juggernaut is attacking the mansion, but then seems to forget and starts scolding Jean and Iceman for running in the halls.
    Beast: No running in the hallways!
    (Juggernaut breaks through and causes chaos)
    Beast: Oh...
  • Wolverine Claws: His game model has one, although they're not as prominent as the Trope Namer.

Wolverine / James "Logan" Howlett

Voiced by: Steve Blum

Wolverine is one of the better-known members of the X-Men. Initially a soldier and mutant, Wolverine was involuntarily taken in by Weapon X and experimented on repeatedly, with the process costing him some of his memories but granting him adamantium bones and claws, which made him the killing machine they desired. Eventually, he escaped and joined Department H before Charles Xavier recruited him into the X-Men.

  • Arch-Enemy: To Sabretooth. He clearly blames him for a lot of the tragedy that was Weapon X.
  • Badass Baritone: Courtesy of Steve Blum once again.
  • Battle in the Rain: He and Hulk get in one against Abomination and Sabretooth.
  • Be Careful What You Wish For: See Tempting Fate.
  • The Big Guy: He's not stupid, but he does most of the fighting for the X-Men, at least out of the ones you control in the main campaign.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Around Hulk, who behaves like a Manchild in comparison.
  • Good Is Not Nice: While also prone to Adaptational Comic Relief, Wolverine is still rather bad tempered.
  • Guttural Growler: Courtesy of Steve Blum once again.
  • Healing Factor: One of his main powers. Wolverine can regenerate from an adamantium skeleton, provided he avoids further danger while he does so. He loses fewer studs this way.
  • Hot Blooded Sideburns: Hulk takes particular offence to them, vowing to smash them at one point.
  • Jerk with a Heart of Gold: Wolverine is a hero at heart, in spite of his grumpy tendencies. One of his responses when Mastermind is busy giving him a nasty dose of Mind Rape, and consequently making him imagine Weapon X are experimenting on him, is to scream that he is not a monster.
  • Kleptomaniac Hero: He steals the Tesseract from under the noses of Thor, Captain America and the Human Torch. This comes back to bite him in the arse hard.
  • Knight in Sour Armour: Wolverine is one of the most cynical heroes in the game, but is still on the side of good.
  • Made of Iron: If Wolverine suffers a killing blow, he will be reduced to an adamantium skeleton and still function, and maybe regenerate if not harmed further.
  • Mind Rape: A particularly nasty case at the hands of Mastermind, who convinces him that Weapon X are experimenting on him.
  • Nice Job Breaking It, Hero!:
    • Wolverine shows up to help defeat Red Skull, knocking him out before he can escape via the Vortex. In doing so, however, he accidentally breaks said device and forces the heroes to take the Bifrost to chase after Loki, only to arrive in a partially-conquered Asgard.
    • Had Wolverine not taken the Tesseract away from Thor, the Human Torch and Captain America, things would have been easier to manage. The result at the end of the next level is a badly damaged Xavier Institute, with Magneto having taken the Tesseract.
  • Sitcom Archnemesis: With The Hulk, who irrationally wants to smash him to pieces for no reason.
  • Tempting Fate: Believes that taking the Tesseract will help the X-Men locate Magneto. It did, but not in that way.
  • Wolverine Claws: The Trope Namer. In this game, they're used for climbing, digging, claw switches and combat.
  • Wolverine Publicity: He gets more screen time than most of the other X-Men, though during "Juggernauts and Crosses" he's out of the spotlight whereas the others are in it, so this isn't too bad.

Storm / Ororo Munroe

Voiced by: Danielle Nicolet

Originally a street thief in Cairo, Ororo Munroe was recruited by Charles Xavier into the X-Men after he saved her from the Shadow King. Since then, she has joined as a teacher but has since taken the reins of command from Cyclops when necessary.

  • Action Girl: Being a woman doesn't stop her kicking butt.
  • Blow You Away: Can summon wind, for combat and to put out fires.
  • Large Ham: Storm likes telling you how she is one with the elements in a rather dramatic fashion.
  • Not Quite Flight: She can use her powers to hover, but not for total flight.
  • Shock and Awe: One of her powers is summoning lightning.

Colossus / Piotr Rasputin

Voiced by: John DiMaggio

Piotr Rasputin is a Russian member of the X-Men that left his homeland to join the X-Men. He has the power to turn his skin into solid metal, as well as super strength.

  • The Big Guy: Not for the main campaign as he doesn't appear as a playable character at that point, but Colossus is a very physical fighter, and is actually one of the tallest X-Men, if not the tallest, in the game.
  • Extra-ore-dinary: One of his powers is for his skin to turn into solid iron.
  • Made of Iron: Literally. It's one of his powers.
  • Super Strength: One of his main powers.

Gambit / Remy LeBeau

Voiced by: Phil LaMarr

A former thief, Remy LeBeau joined the X-Men after eventually turning away from his life of crime. He has the power of exploiting kinetic energy, and has advanced physical abilities.

  • Badass Longcoat: Part of his model, although it's not as prominent owing to the way LEGO figures appear.
  • Loveable Rogue: A thief, but a heroic one and member of the X-Men.
  • Weak, but Skilled: While he's nowhere near as strong as Juggernaut, he manages to distract him effortlessly, buying the main party time to deal with other problems along the way.

Emma Frost

Voiced by: Kari Wahlgren

A former supervillain, Emma Frost eventually joined the X-Men as one of its teachers.

  • Action Girl: Emma may not take an active role in the story, but she's tough once unlocked.

Archangel / Warren Worthington III

Voiced by: Will Friedle

The playboy son of a billionaire that hated mutants, Warren Worthington III joined the X-Men as Angel. After his original set of wings were lost, he gained a set of metallic wings by making a Deal with the Devil with Apocalypse, although he eventually was freed from the tyrant's servitude and returned as Archangel. Along with the ability of flight, Archangel has the ability to fire metallic blades from his wings.

    The Fantastic Four 

Mr Fantastic / Reed Richards

The leader of the Fantastic Four, Reed Richards is the husband of Susan Richards. He led an expedition into space along with his team, consisting of himself, Sue, Johnny Storm and Benjamin Grimm. The resulting cosmic radiation mutated them into something not quite human, giving Reed the power to stretch his body into unnatural shapes. With his powers, he decided to become a superhero.

Invisible Woman / Susan Richards (née Storm)

Voiced by: Kari Wahlgren

The sweetheart and later wife of Reed Richards, Susan Storm worked with Reed on his scientific project, joining him on his mission into space. The resulting exposure to cosmic rays gave her the ability to generate forcefields and turn invisible. She is the sister of Johnny Storm, aka the Human Torch.

Human Torch / Johnny Storm

The younger brother of Susan Richards, Johnny Storm joined his sister, future brother-in-law and Ben Grimm on their adventure to outer space. The subsequent exposure to cosmic rays left him with the power of flight, as well as the ability to turn himself into a man Wreathed In Flame, as well as shoot fire. He has a very rocky friendship with Ben Grimm.

The Thing / Benjamin Grimm

Voiced by: Dave Boat

The college friend of Reed Richards and one of his best friends, Ben Grimm was also an accomplished pilot and college graduate before he joined Reed's ill-fated expedition. The resulting exposure to cosmic rays left him with a very durable body and superhuman strength, but also with a hideous appearance that he was stuck in forever. He has a very rocky friendship with Johnny Storm.

  • Badass Baritone: Courtesy of Dave Boat once more.
  • The Big Guy: For the Fantastic Four.
  • The Chew Toy: He often falls over, he almost never gets to finish his catch phrase and he takes a lot of physical punishment.
  • Gentle Giant: A decent guy in spite of his size.
  • Lightning Bruiser: For his size, Thing moves fast.
  • Made of Iron: Thing takes a lot of punishment and takes it in stride.
  • No-Sell: Regular attacks have no effect on him.
  • Shut Up, Hannibal!: Delivers an epic one to Doctor Doom, punching him off Asteroid M and letting him fall back down to Earth (anyone can breathe in space, so it's not fatal).
  • Super Strength: One of his main powers.
  • Vitriolic Best Buds: With Human Torch.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Thing doesn't wear a shirt. This has some basis from the comics, as his shirts and coats invariably tended to be shredded, meaning they were rather useless compared to the costumes the others wore.


Voiced by: Tara Strong

The Robot Buddy of the Fantastic Four.

  • The Chew Toy: It's possible to release "him" from a walled-off part of the Baxter Building in the free play part of "Times Square Off", where he complains he's been trapped since the seventies. He will show up in the main campaign anyway, even if you don't.
  • Joke Character: He moves slower than almost every other character, and doesn't have much ability in the way of fighting.
  • Robot Buddy: To the Fantastic Four.
  • What Happened to the Mouse?: Inverted. He just sort of abruptly shows up in the middle of ''Times Square Off", telling you that Doctor Octopus is getting away. Even releasing him in Free Play Mode, where he admits he's been trapped there since the seventies, doesn't quite explain his presence.


Director Nick Fury

The director of SHIELD, Nick Fury is responsible for keeping the world's superheroes and supervillains in check.

Maria Hill

Voiced by: Danielle Nicolet

  • Adaptational Comic Relief: Hill is downright silly compared to either her comic or film incarnation.
  • Captain Obvious: "All we know is that Doctor Doom is planning... something. That's bad, right?"
  • Genius Ditz: Able to recalibrate force field projectors... to make go-kart tracks.
  • Mission Control: Serves as this for the loading screens, briefing the heroes on the location they're going to be visiting.
  • Mr. Exposition: As Mission Control, she informs you about the places you're going to visit.
  • Noodle Incident: Her force field race tracks have allegedly shorted out in the past, causing go-karts to apparently fall from the sky. Doubles as relatively minor foreshadowing since that's what happens if you lose the race and the force-field gives out.

Hawkeye / Clint Barton

Voiced by: Troy Baker

A SHIELD agent that specialises in archery, Clint Barton aka Hawkeye is a powerful fighter and works alongside Natasha Romanov.

  • Archer Archetype: Snarky, cool under pressure and an amazing shot.
  • Badass Normal: No powers, yet he can take on several symbiote-possessed humans and win.
  • Cool Shades: Red ones, in his default costume.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Trash much in the overworld after the second level, and he'll question if damage control minds.
  • Improbable Aiming Skills: The closest he has to a superpower.
  • Purple Is Powerful: His DLC costume is his comics version, which is mostly purple.
  • Ship Tease: With Black Widow. He's found carrying some flowers in his equipment kit, causing her to snark that he shouldn't have. Later, he takes her to the circus in an apparent attempt to impress her, although Iceman and Nightmare both ruin that plan.
  • Sleeves Are for Wimps: In both his regular costume and his DLC one.

Black Widow / Natasha Romanoff

Voiced by: Laura Bailey

A former assassin, Natasha Romanoff AKA the Black Widow eventually had a Heel–Face Turn and joined SHIELD as one of its top agents. She is frequently paired with Clint Barton for missions.

  • Action Girl: One of the toughest SHIELD agents, and a woman to boot.
  • Badass Normal: No powers, yet with CQB training and two pistols, she can take on several symbiote-possessed humans and win.
  • Deadpan Snarker: See Ship Tease.
  • Genius Bruiser: One of the few campaign characters that can use the terminals, which require really intelligent characters.
  • Guns Akimbo: Her default ranged weaponry consists of two pistols.
  • Ship Tease: With Hawkeye. He's found carrying some flowers in his equipment kit, causing her to snark that he shouldn't have. Later, he takes her to the circus in an apparent attempt to impress her, although Iceman and Nightmare both ruin that plan.

Agent Phil Coulson

Voiced by: Clark Gregg

A SHIELD agent that ranks relatively high up, Coulson is one of the few normal individuals in the Marvel Universe.

  • Almighty Janitor: This guy is responsible for cleanup after the heroes and villains have had a fight, but can easily hold his own.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Once unlocked.
  • Badass Normal: Can be unlocked and played with, and does pretty well in a fight.
  • BFG: Wields a pretty good one similar to his weapon of choice against Loki in the films. It affects metallic and gold objects.
  • The Chew Toy: Always made to do cleanup, Nick Fury constantly makes him catch his finished drinks, and apparently he has to buy Nick Fury's eyepatches.
  • Deadpan Snarker: His best way of coping with supers is clearly with his wit.
  • Mission Control: Acts as this, giving you hints and helping you out in gameplay.
  • Nice Guy: Snark aside, Coulson is polite, loyal and heroic.
  • Servile Snarker: Coulson is a nice and decent person, and politely snarks against people that get on his nerves, or simply to cope with weird situations.
  • Team Dad: Acts this way towards the SHIELD agents, particularly Hawkeye and Black Widow. He's very concerned for their well-being and is supportive of them after Red Skull injures both of them.
    Coulson: They may not be super, but they are heroes.

    Other plot-relevant heroes 

Silver Surfer / Norrin Radd

Initially a being known as Norrin Radd, Radd became the Silver Surfer after Galactus threatened to destroy his world, but offered to spare it if Rad became his herald. Now, as Galactus' servant, Silver Surfer initially searches for new worlds for his master to devour. However, he later stumbles across Earth and after an initial pursuit from Iron Man, he has a rapid change of heart.

  • Anti-Villain: Can only be considered a villain in the sense that he works for Galactus, and even then he's eager to stop his master from eating the earth.
  • Bald of Awesome: No hair.
  • The Dragon: To Galactus, although we don't get to see him do much work in this role.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Starts as a villain but tries to stop Earth being devoured pretty early on.
  • Non-Action Guy: Not by choice, though- his board's out of commission and he's therefore unable to do much.


Voiced by: JB Blanc

The keeper of the Bifrost, and one of the most powerful Asgardians, Heimdall is loyal to Asgard and Odin.

  • Badass Baritone: His voice actor is clearly emulating Idris Elba.
  • Composite Character: Largely based off the film version of Heimdall (black, deep voice similar to Idris Elba's), with traits of his comic counterpart kept in.

Stan Lee

Voiced by: Stan Lee

The co-creator of Marvel Comics, responsible for a large amount of the original Marvel heroes known and loved today. He appears throughout the game, often in perilous situations that the heroes have to bust him out of.

  • Adam Westing: Stan Lee exaggerates a lot of his personality for the game.
  • All Your Powers Combined: He has the abilities of several main characters, including Spider-Man's webs, Wolverine's healing, and the Hulk's transformation.
  • As Himself: Stan Lee voices himself for this.
  • Badass Mustache: Stan has this both as Hulk!Stan and as a normal human.
  • Cassandra Truth: Gets locked out of the Marvel HQ by a security guard.
    Stan Lee: "But I'm Stan Lee!"
  • Catchphrase: "HELP!"
  • The Chew Toy: Most of the situations he winds up in are so hilarious that you can't help but laugh at him.
  • Combo Platter Powers: As a playable character, he has the biggest variety of abilities.
  • Distressed Dude: He mostly appears to be in need of rescue when you see him...
    • Badass in Distress: But once you unlock him as a playable character, he proves he's a very capable guy.
  • Fourth-Wall Observer: Constantly comments about how he's everywhere in the game.
    Stan: I'm all over this game! When do I stop being a cameo and start being a star?
  • Hulking Out: One of his superpowers, believe it or not. Probably because he drank gamma-soda (a reference to the Hulk movie where he drank gamma-tainted tequilla, straight from Bruce Banner), which he is later found doing.
  • Noodle Incident: He ended up in the Raft for some bizarre reason, and Magneto ends up releasing him during "Rock Up at the Lock Up". He quickly runs away, being ignored in favour of Loki.
  • Too Dumb to Live: One honestly questions how he got in those situations. In at least one case, he's caught in a burning building and is too busy screaming for help to turn on the sprinklers and put the fire out. The lever for the sprinklers is right next to him, so Jean Grey has to control his body and turn them on for him.
  • Wolverine Publicity: In-Universe. Deadpool gets rather ticked off that Stan appears more than he does.

Deadpool / Wade Wilson

Voiced by: Nolan North

Known as the "Merc with a Mouth", Deadpool is a mercenary with a healing factor and a rather unstable state of mind. He narrates most of the bonus mission briefings.

  • Beware the Silly Ones: Deadpool is not a sensible guy, but he is still a master swordsman and an expert shot.
  • Crouching Moron, Hidden Badass: Deadpool is very silly, but still tough.
  • Fetch Quest: Parodied: He sends you to go look for his 'flamingo blade' out of pure laziness.
  • The Fourth Wall Will Not Protect You: Done to the characters in-game with Deadpool's finishing attack. He picks up the circle you stand in to interact with something, jams it around the target's waist, and grabs his targeting icon and bashes them over the head! He uses interface symbols as attacks! But, it is Deadpool.
  • Heroes Prefer Swords: He runs around with a pair of them.
  • Hypocritical Humour: Gets mad at being in the game less than Stan Lee does.
    Deadpool: He's in this game more than I am!
  • Large Ham: During most of his impersonations.
  • Manchild: "Hi, I'm Deadpool and I want a pony!" That is all.
  • Motor Mouth: Deadpool is called the "merc with a mouth" for a reason.
  • Medium Awareness: As per tradition with Deadpool.
  • Self-Deprecation: His final mission has you help him beat up Mooks due to TT Games having "run out of ideas" and encourages you to see them spawn in.
    • Heck, his entire spiel during his quest trilogy due to the open-world quests following a Strictly Formula.
  • Wolverine Publicity: Surprisingly downplayed and averted at different points. While he's in all the side missions, he doesn't play an active role in them. However, he makes no direct appearance in the main campaign whatsoever and thus cannot steal the spotlight, not even appearing on the front of the game's box for consoles.


Voiced by: Troy Baker

The AI that helps Tony Stark in his affairs and heroics.

  • Apologetic Attacker: After Loki, Mandarin and Aldrich hack into his systems, he still has the will to apologise to Tony when he and Captain America arrive to debug him.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Helps defeat Mandarin by sending the Iron Man suits to distract and weaken him.
    J.A.R.V.I.S: House Party Protocol activated.
  • Composite Character: Largely takes influence from the film version, being an AI.
  • Servile Snarker: J.A.R.V.I.S. is loyal to Tony but still takes time to snark at him.

    Unmarked spoiler team 

The Guardians of the Galaxy. This group of heroes does not show up until after the main campaign is finished.

In general

Star-Lord / Peter Quill

  • Flight: One of his powers.
  • Guns Akimbo: He wields two pistols as his default ranged weapon.
  • The Hero: Of the group, not of the game as a whole.

Drax the Destroyer / Arthur Douglas

Voiced by: David Sobolov


Voiced by: Danielle Nicolet

Rocket Raccoon

Voiced by: John DiMaggio


Voiced by: Troy Baker

  • Badass Baritone: He may only have three words to show it off, but Groot has a deep, deep voice.
  • Pokémon Speak: "I AM GROOT!" is the only thing he can say. Mercifully, his quest briefings aren't very long, although it does leave you wondering what you have to do for a few seconds.
  • Quest Giver: Groot gives out several quests that involve attacking purple mole creatures, for some reason.


    Other heroes 

The Punisher / Frank Castle

Howard the Duck / Howard Duckson

Black Panther / T'Challa

  • Bait-and-Switch: His initial appearance has him hidden in shadows, making it look like he's Batman.
  • The Comically Serious: His quests determine to get all the mileage they can out of King T'Challa looking for his cat, Mr. Tiddles.
  • Quest Giver: Finding and protecting his cat.
  • Wolverine Claws: How his costume's claws are represented in game.

Captain Britain / Brian Braddock

  • Fish out of Water: When he loses his race against you, he claims that he still has to adjust to driving on the right, as opposed to the left.
  • Grammar Nazi: He insists on British spelling, as opposed to American spelling, most notably that favour is spelt "F-A-V-O-U-R" during a side mission.
  • Knight In Shining Armour: As both a hero and an upstanding gentleman, he qualifies.
  • Nice Guy: Captain Britain is a heroic and friendly individual that seems to enjoy interacting with you, and will happily aid a fellow hero in need whenever they need support.
  • Thememobile: His Cool Car is called the "Britmobile".

Ghost Rider / Johnny Blaze

  • Badass Biker: Shows up on his bike to fight Nightmare, and later challenges you to a race.
  • Big Damn Heroes: Shows up to aid Hawkeye, Black Widow and Iceman against Nightmare.

Pepper Potts / Rescue

Voiced by: Laura Bailey
  • Composite Character: While her appearance out of armour and her relationship with Tony is based on the Marvel Cinematic Universe, her extended use of the Rescue armour goes far beyond what's briefly seen in Iron Man 3 and is based more on the comics.
  • Tertiary Sexual Characteristics: Averted in the design of Rescue's armour itself, which is very similar to the Iron Man armour except that it's silver and red rather than gold and red, and has a longer and more tapered face-plate. But her repulsor beams are bright pink and have cartoon flowers sparkling in them...

Nova / Sam Alexander


    Brotherhood of Mutants 

The Brotherhood in general

  • Badass Army: The Acolytes may not be that tough, but they're determined and cover each others' weaknesses. Some of their members are even strong enough to hurt the Hulk.
  • Fantastic Racism: Humanity annoys them greatly.
  • Shock and Awe: Some of the grunts, and generally the ones to watch out for, as they can hurt characters such as Thing and Hulk that would normally No-Sell most attacks.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: Their vision is to make mutants the superior species instead of a hunted and isolated one.

Magneto / Erik Lensherr / Max Eisenhart

Voiced by: Nolan North

  • Affably Evil: Magneto is rather gentlemanly given his plans and allegiance.
  • Badass Baritone: Voiced by Nolan North doing an impression of Ian McKellen.
  • Badass Cape: Part of his outfit.
  • Big Bad: For the Brotherhood, although he's part of a Big Bad Triumvirate with Doctor Doom and Loki.
  • Deadpan Snarker: He takes inspiration from the film version in this regard.
  • Enemy Mine: With the heroes and Doctor Doom, against Galactus and Loki.
    Magneto: I suppose assisting you is preferable to the entire planet being destroyed... if only marginally.
  • Evil Brit: Vocally based off Ian McKellen and Tom Kane's renditions.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Downplayed. Nolan North's voice for him is less deep than other incarnations, but it's still quite deep.
  • Fantastic Racism: He hates humanity for their crimes against mutantkind.
  • Forgot About His Powers: He averts this for the most part (unlike most other adaptations), in particular against Iron Man, but never once does he think to use his powers on Wolverine during "Rock Up At the Lock-Up".
  • Gentleman Snarker: Snarks about how the heroes shouldn't be rude to a lady. Said lady in question is the Statue of Liberty. No, you did not read that wrong.
  • Off with His Head!: A fate he delivers to the Statue of Liberty after it is no longer useful to him.
  • OOC Is Serious Business: Charles Xavier notes that if Magneto is attacking the Mansion, something must be serious.
  • Pet the Dog: While attacking the Mansion, he chooses not to hurt Charles Xavier even though it would be an ideal opportunity, because the two are old friends.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: His quote regarding the Enemy Mine sums it up.
    Magneto: I suppose assisting you is preferable to the entire planet being destroyed... if only marginally.
  • Ship Tease: Pulls Mystique very close while leaving the X-Mansion.
  • Teeth-Clenched Teamwork: Clearly, he does not enjoy working with the heroes, but is aware they don't have much choice.
    Magneto: Your memory is as as abominable as the rest of you... it's either this or become Galactus-food, remember? So let's just find Doom and get this over with!
  • Unwitting Pawn: Loki manipulates him and Doctor Doom into gathering the Cosmic Bricks so he can annihilate the Earth.
  • Well-Intentioned Extremist: His vision is to make mutants the superior species instead of a hunted and isolated one. To that end, he'll team up with Doom and Loki to see his goal become reality.

Mystique / Raven Darkholme

Voiced by: Laura Bailey

  • Dark Action Girl: Mystique is second to Magneto both in combat and in rank. That doesn't mean she's weak at all.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Has a very dry wit.
  • The Dragon: To Magneto.
  • Enemy Mine: Joins with the heroes and some of Doom's group to fight off Loki and Galactus.
  • Evil Redhead: Red appears to be her natural hair colour.
  • Shapeshifter: Her main power. The game has it adapt depending on the player's location, depending on where you are.
  • We Need a Distraction: Pretends to be Magneto in order to delay the heroes and allow Asteroid M to safely launch into space.

Sabretooth / Victor Creed

  • Arch-Enemy: To Wolverine, who outright despises him and associates him with Weapon X, not to mention his torturous backstory.
  • Axe-Crazy: Sabretooth is not a guy you'd want to hang around with, let's just put it that way.
  • Battle in the Rain: He sides with Abomination against Wolverine and Hulk, and one of these ensues with Sabretooth providing air support.
  • Blood Knight: Sabretooth is in the Brotherhood because he enjoys fighting, not because he believes in the cause.
  • The Brute: Enjoys fighting.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He has a very deep voice.
  • Wolverine Claws: They're styled differently from Wolverine's, but he has them.

Juggernaut / Cain Marko

Voiced by: Andrew Kishino

  • The Brute: Does most of the fighting, although he shares duty with Sabretooth in this regard.
  • Composite Character: Seems to combine the film version with the comics version, in that he's a mutant (he isn't in the comics) but keeps his appearance and nationality from the comics.
  • Curse Cut Short: He tries delivering the infamous line without success.
    Juggernaut: Don't you know who I am? I'm the Juggernaut-
    Iceman: Yeah, yeah, we get it!
  • Dumb Muscle: Not very smart.
  • The Juggernaut: Trope Namer.
  • Super Strength: One of his main powers.

Mastermind / Jason Wyngarde

  • Beard of Evil: Has one on his character model.
  • Evil Genius: To Magneto, being the one planning the diversions and keeping the stronger heroes away.
  • Kick the Dog: His Mind Rape of Wolverine and Hulk.
  • Mind Rape: Does this to Mister Fantastic (by forcing him to imagine Skrulls are annoying him), Wolverine (by convincing him that Weapon X is using him for an experiment) and Hulk (by making him relive the circumstances of his birth).
  • Weak, but Skilled: Physically, Mastermind is not very strong, having only three hearts of health. However, he's a strong enough telepath to seriously threaten Wolverine, the Hulk and Mister Fantastic.
  • Your Mind Makes It Real: The projections that the heroes see as a result of the Mind Rape will eventually attack the player characters if they don't snap the heroes out of it.

Pyro / St John Allerdyce

Voiced by: Nolan North

Toad / Mortimer Toynbee

Voiced by: Greg Cipes

  • The Chew Toy: His attempted kidnapping goes horribly wrong.
  • Epic Fail: How about trying to kidnap a member of the X-Men, only to fail to bear in mind that she can easily electrocute his tongue.

Blob / Fred Dukes

Voiced by: Stephen Stanton

  • Anti-Villain: Doesn't do that much wrong, and in his side mission he's basically just doing some exercise and trying to lose weight. Of course, being a villain in a side mission which runs on Comedic Sociopathy, he doesn't get to do this.
  • Fat Bastard: Downplayed. See Anti-Villain.


Doctor Doom / Victor Von Doom

Voiced by: Fred Tatasciore

Green Goblin / Norman Osborn

Voiced by: Nolan North

  • Arch-Enemy: To Spider-Man (who technically has three in this game), although his rivalry is the one most focused upon. Lampshaded when he finds that it's not him attacking Latveria, but the Fantastic Four and Nick Fury.
    Green Goblin: What? No Spider-Man? Shame. I do so enjoy winding him up.
    Later, during some Boss Banter...
    Green Goblin: This is getting dull without the Spider to keep me entertained.
  • Bad Boss: He unleashes Venom on the heroes in Oscorp, which is shown to result in multiple scientists and workers being infected by symbiotes. It's left ambiguous as to whether or not they were infected beforehand, but it's clear that none of them volunteered.
  • Bullying a Dragon: He somehow gets the brilliant idea of knocking Hulk's burger to the ground and gets a punch to the stomach for it.
  • Les Collaborateurs: Willingly working with Doom to sell out his country.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: His civilian life is Norman Osborn, head of Oscorp. This gets sarcastically lampshaded by Hawkeye and Spider-Man a few times.
  • The Dragon: To Doom.
  • Enemy Mine: Joins with the heroes and some of Doom's group to fight off Loki and Galactus.
  • Flight: Thanks to his glider, the Green Goblin can fly.
  • Laughably Evil: The Goblin's sense of humour may be lighter than most continuities, but he's still wisecracking even when he's trying to kill the heroes.
  • Laughing Mad: Regularly indulges in a good Evil Laugh.
  • Mad Bomber: He throws a lot of Pumpkin bombs during his boss fights, which makes him incredibly dangerous.
  • Secret Identity: The heroes are totally clueless as to who he is, though Hawkeye muses about it more than the others.


The mechanical Mooks of Doctor Doom, programmed to do his bidding.

    Doctor Doom's Legion (Plot-relevant members) 


Voiced by: Troy Baker

  • Ambition Is Evil: Loki will go to almost any lengths to see his goals completed, be it backstabbing allies or manipulating heroes.
    Wolverine: What the heck's he after?
    Thor: He's only ever after one thing: power. ...And, helmets with big horns. He's really into those.
  • Badass Bookworm: Said "bookworm" nearly destroyed Asgard and Earth.
  • Big Bad: For the Asgardian part of things, although he holds equal footing with Doctor Doom and Magneto. It turns out he's manipulated both of them so he's the last one standing from the triumvirate.
  • Big Bad Triumvirate
  • Cain and Abel: The Cain to Thor's Abel.
  • Chronic Backstabbing Disorder: Loki definitely plays in an underhand manner, and even the other villains aren't safe. He abandons Aldrich Killian and the Mandarin so as to cover his own escape from Stark Tower, and later mind-controls Doctor Doom a couple of times to ensure the heroes don't stop him. All this pales to him deciding to outright betray Magneto and Doom in order to destroy Earth and Asgard with all the heroes and villains still there.
  • The Comically Serious: More of Loki's humour comes from his amused reaction to other things, and his deadpan wit. This sharply contrasts with most other LEGO villains, who are outright hammy.
  • Deadpan Snarker: One of his few amusing traits.
  • The Dreaded: When he breaks out of prison, everyone starts panicking and the other superheroes such as Carnage and the Red Skull, while dangerous, are not treated with the same priority.
  • Enemy Mine: He allies with Thor against Malekith in the side mission "Bro-tunheim".
  • Evil Is Petty: Loki stands as one of the pettiest villains in the game, willing to annihilate Earth and Asgard by leading Galactus to them. His reasons for doing so? He's spiteful about not being direct heir to the throne.
  • Faux Affably Evil: His politeness is rather insincere.
  • Hoist by His Own Petard: Galactus eventually breaks free of the mind-control and decides to try and eat him.
  • I Shall Taunt You: He constantly taunts the heroes during "A Bifrosty Reception".
  • Knight of Cerebus: Unlike most of the other villains in the game, Loki is taken more seriously as the details of his plan unfold. His humour is also considerably more down-to-earth, and finally he stops being funny altogether.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Loki is a fan of making people think that they're getting what they want, when they're really playing into his hands.
  • Might as Well Not Be in Prison at All: He's initially imprisoned in The Raft, but is coordinating assaults alongside Doom and communicating with him without anyone else knowing. He eventually breaks out rather effortlessly.
  • Popularity Power: Fans of the comics know this is the only way that he could one-up Doctor Doom so easily and brainwash Galactus.
  • Psychopathic Manchild: While generally mature, if not exactly sane, Loki has his moments of childishness and immaturity towards his brother. It's one of the few amusing traits he has.
    Thor: What are you planning, Loki?
    Loki: [singsong] You can't make me tell. [speaking] You are not the god of me.
    Thor: Ohhh! Thou dost vex me with that taunt. You have used it since we were children!
  • Smug Snake: In the Bifrosty Reception level, he's constantly taunting the heroes even as they for together to defeat him. Subverted eventually, since he comes dangerously close to winning in spite of his massive ego.
  • Smug Super: Loki constantly taunts the other heroes, but he can back up his boasts, mostly with his mind.
  • Weak, but Skilled: Compared to other Asgardians, Loki is rather weak, and this is reflected by his low health in his first boss fight against Wolverine, Captain America, Human Torch and Thor. However, his mind is sharp enough for this not to matter, and he's still an Asgardian.

Abomination / Emil Blonsky

Voiced by: Steve Blum

Sandman / William Baker

Doctor Octopus / Otto Octavius

  • Arc Villain: For "Times Central Station".
  • Badass Bookworm: Otto's a tough combatant and a dangerous supervillain. He used to be a teacher at one stage.
  • Badass Teacher: Badass ex-teacher, at least. He's since left that life behind.
  • Enemy Mine: Joins with the heroes and some of Doom's group to fight off Loki and Galactus.
  • Four Eyes, Zero Soul: His dark goggles fit his personality.
  • Insufferable Genius: Will he ever stop boasting about how smart he is?
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: He actually has a doctorate, being Doctor Otto Octavius. He kept it even after becoming a supervillain.
  • My Future Self and Me: During one level he and Spider-Man trash a billboard depicting Superior Spider-Man, who is also playable as a secret character.
  • Rogues Gallery Transplant: He normally menaces Spider-Man, but he spends his time as the Arc Villain in "Times Central Station" menacing the Fantastic Four, and is depicted with particular enmity toward Richards.
  • Smug Snake: Doc Ock is a powerful enemy and a smart man, but he tends to over-credit himself too much.

Venom / Eddie Brock

Voiced by: Steve Blum

Venom is the combined entity resulting from the merging of a symbiotic alien called a klyntar and a human host (although Eddie Brock is the most famous host, his current host is not known). "Exploratory, Laboratory" reveals that Oscorp has been holding him hostage, at which point he is released by Green Goblin as a distraction.

  • Adaptational Villainy: Unlike his comic book counterpart who is a antihero, this Venom is a full on villain.
  • Adorable Evil Minions: He, along with the symbiote mooks, provide one of the most notable aversions throughout all the LEGO games.
  • Arc Villain: For the second half of "Exploratory, Laboratory".
  • Body Horror: When he ends up Hulking Out, he rips himself in half. Granted, it's only for a second and he recovers, but still.
  • Combat Tentacles: He has multiple tentacles extending from his back.
  • Enemy Mine: Joins with the heroes and some of Doom's group to fight off Loki and Galactus.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: Voiced by Steve Blum, so it comes with the territory.
  • Hulking Out: He can transform into the massive Ultimate Venom. This involves him literally ripping himself in half.
  • Jump Scare: Does a legitimately creepy one when the heroes arrive on the final floor of Oscorp.
  • Knight of Cerebus: A smaller-scale one for "Exploratory, Laboratory". While he's not exactly one of the most dangerous antagonists and he is even being held at Oscorp against his will, his appearance plays out very much like a horror film and the game becomes less funny when he shows up, with more gruesome gameplay mechanics as well. While not above the occasional gag, Venom's definitely one of the scarier, and less funny, villains. Oh yeah, and he and his mooks look more disgusting than most LEGO minifigs.
  • Legacy Character: When Venom first attacks, Spider-Man is asked who is wearing the symbiote this time.
  • Mundane Utility: Uses his tentacles to juggle skulls.
  • Primal Stance: Walks and runs on all fours.
  • Voice of the Legion: Speaks with a deep undertone to his voice.

Whiplash / Ivan Vanko

Voiced by: John DiMaggio

  • Shock and Awe: His whips are electrified, meaning that he can use them both in combat and also to power up generators.
  • Walking Shirtless Scene: Apart from the generators on his back, he doesn't seem to be wearing anything on his chest.
  • Whip It Good: His main weapons are a pair of electrified whips.
  • Zero-Effort Boss: You don't even directly fight him, if you can consider him a "boss" at all.

The Leader / Samuel Sterns

Voiced by: Jeffrey Combs

  • Arch-Enemy: One of Hulk's, although Abomination takes this role more prominently than the Leader does.
  • Barrier Warrior: His boss fight mainly consists of him blocking your way, and not very well at that.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: He's voiced by Jeffrey Combs, who has a less deep voice than most examples of this trope, though he still counts.
  • Insufferable Genius: Leader's smart, but just keeps bragging about it.
  • Tempting Fate: Leader claims you'll never make it past him. Give the heroes about thirty seconds and they will.
  • Zero-Effort Boss: All the player needs to do to stop him is blow up the metallic objects, which throws him off and leaves him open to attack.


Voiced by: John DiMaggio

  • Arch-Enemy: To Iron Man.
  • Arc Villain: For "Rebooted, Resuited".
  • Badass Cape: His film version wears one, but is otherwise completely useless.
  • Badass Normal: His film version is a subversion, being a Joke Character.
  • Beard of Evil: He has a more subdued beard than his comics version, but still has a beard.
  • Composite Character: The version of him in this continuity is based on the version of Mandarin as shown in the films, but with Killian also as a version of him. A costume exists for both the comics version and the film one.
    • Peculiarly enough, the real Mandarin now exists in the film-verse. No, that's not a cheap Take That!, there is an actual Mandarin in the MCU that's pissed off with Killian and Trevor Slattery for their stealing his image.
  • Deadpan Snarker: Merely says "never trust a demigod", after Loki betrays him.
  • Dual Boss: With Killian against the player.
  • Joke Character: The version of him from the films is almost completely useless.
  • Not Completely Useless: His film version is less useful than his comics version, but he can still hold off many mooks.
  • Powered Armour: Goes on to hijack the Hulkbuster armour for his own personal use.
  • Playing with Fire: One of the abilities that his rings grant him is to shoot fire, which he can use to destroy golden objects.
  • Race Lift: This version appears more westernised than in the comics.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Loki abandons him and Aldrich Killian to hold off Cap and Iron Man.
  • Villainous Valour: Even after Loki betrays him and Killian and it becomes apparent that he will not be able to escape, he hijacks the Hulkbuster armour, goes on to fight both Cap and Iron Man and destroys an entire wave of automated Iron Man suits that are sent to attack him.
  • Visionary Villain: He mentions that Iron Man could never fully understand why he did what he did, implying he had grander reasons for allying with Doom.
  • Walking Spoiler: Not so much for the game, but he spoils quite a bit about Iron Man 3.
  • What Is Evil?: During the fight against him, he argues that "there is still no such thing as heroes".
  • Yellow Peril: Distinctly averted. He has a hint of an accent and the obvious name, but you'd have little indication as to his origin otherwise.

Aldrich Killian

  • Adaptational Badass: The film version was killed by an Extremis-powered Pepper, albeit after a prolonged fight with Iron Man in which he took many serious injuries. This version held his own against Iron Man and Captain America.
  • Adaptational Villainy: Like the film version, he's much nastier than his comics counterpart.
  • Arch-Enemy: Also to Iron Man, whom he really hates for some reason.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: Sharply dressed and kicking ass.
  • Composite Character: The version of him in this continuity is based on the version of Killian as shown in the films, but with Mandarin also existing as an actual entity.
    • Peculiarly enough, the real Mandarin now exists in the film-verse. No, that's not a cheap Take That!, there is an actual Mandarin in the MCU that's pissed off with Killian and Trevor Slattery for their stealing his image.
  • The Dragon: To Mandarin.
  • Dual Boss: With Mandarin against the player.
  • Playing with Fire: His Extremis powers.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Loki abandons him and his master to Iron Man and Captain American's mercy.
  • Villainous Valour: Even after Loki betrays him and his boss and it becomes apparent that they will not be able to escape, he goes on to fight both Cap and Iron Man, though he gets knocked out considerably earlier.
  • Walking Spoiler: Not so much for the game, but he spoils quite a bit about Iron Man 3.

Red Skull / Johann Shmidt

Voiced by: Steve Blum

Arnim Zola

MODOK / George Tarleton

Voiced by:Dave Boat

  • Barrier Warrior: He has a powerful force field that he uses in combat. Deconstructed in that his shields drain too much power.
  • The Chew Toy: His performance in combat is ...subpar.
  • Epic Fail: His efforts to use his full strength backfire and leave him vulnerable.
  • Glass Cannon: He can dish out lots of damage but can't take it, and his energy levels drain too quickly.
  • Insufferable Genius: MODOK loves bragging about his intelligence.
  • Smug Snake: He claims to be all-powerful, but constantly shorts out his own circuits and is easily bested by anyone quick.

Rhino / Aleksei Sytevich

  • Animal Motifs: A rhino, natch.
  • Anti-Villain: Rhino doesn't seem fully aware of what's going on, and shouts to be left alone repeatedly.
  • Dumb Muscle: Rhino is not intelligent and is easily fooled.
  • Lightning Bruiser: Rhino moves fast and hits hard.
  • Super Strength: His attacks can easily hurt The Thing, who is on his level.
  • The Unexpected: Given the theme of the level in which he appears, mostly X-Men based stuff, seeing Rhino show up is something of a surprise. Heck, even he doesn't seem to know where he is.



Galactus / Galan

Voiced by: John Dimaggio

  • Attack of the 50-Foot Whatever: Galactus is huge.
  • Badass Baritone: This version has John DiMaggio voicing him, and therefore this trope is in full effect.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Loki mind-controls him at the end of "A Doom With a View", leading him to try and annihilate the heroes.
  • The Dog Bites Back: He turns on Loki once the mind control is broken and Loki has no way of escaping.
  • The Dreaded: When he finally shows up, the heroes are terrified.
  • Eldritch Abomination / Humanoid Abomination: Galactus looks humanoid and indeed he seems to be hittable the way most humanoids would be, but this is partly owing to A Form You Are Comfortable With.
  • Evil Sounds Deep: This version is voiced by John DiMaggio, although "evil" is a loose term, given how most depictions portray him as a Necessary Evil or Above Good and Evil.
  • Final Boss: Of the main campaign and the level "The Good, The Bad and the Hungry".
  • Flight: One of his powers. This is one of the few that is unaltered after you unlock him.
  • Greater-Scope Villain: Galactus doesn't directly appear until the final act, but it's clear that he's the real powerhouse when he marches in- literally. His impending arrival also causes the bad guys to try and steal his power via the cosmic bricks.
  • Large Ham: Galactus will declare very dramatically if he hungers.
  • Not Quite Flight: For large portions of the campaign, he's shown comically walking through space.
  • Planet Eater: He mainly feeds on worlds.
  • Purple Is Powerful: Most of his costume is coloured purple, and the effects of the Power Cosmic are depicted this way, including once you unlock him as a player character.
  • Redemption Demotion: The version of him you unlock is still powerful, but also considerably shorter for obvious reasons and much easier to wound.
  • Sealed Evil in a Can: Galactus is eventually sent to another dimension with Loki. He doesn't seem to mind, as long as he finds something to eat.
  • Unwitting Pawn: Loki awaited his arrival and brainwashed him to follow his orders, namely destroying Earth and Asgard.

    Other villains 

The Kingpin / Wilson Fisk

Wilson Fisk is the head of a crime syndicate, who poses as a legitimate businessman. He's known as an Arch-Enemy to Daredevil, and Spider-Man on occasion.

  • Arch-Enemy: To Daredevil.
  • Arc Villain: Of the side-mission "Feeling Fisky".
  • Authority Equals Asskicking: Kingpin easily hands the heroes their butts on a platter in hand-to-hand.
  • Badass Normal: No superpowers, yet he can pose a threat to Captain America, Spider-Man and Daredevil, all of whom are superhuman in some way.
  • Badass in a Nice Suit: As a crime boss, he dresses impeccably.
  • Bond Villain Stupidity: Kingpin needs a SHIELD agent bumped off, that's fair enough. What's stupid is his way of choosing to bump him off- rather than crush him with his bare hands or have Elektra and Bullseye destroy him, he leaves him to be cut in half with a laser. This allows Captain America to easily save the agent.
  • Charles Atlas Superpower: It's not possible to be that ripped in real life, needless to say.
  • Corrupt Corporate Executive: Fisk's disguise as a legitimate businessman helps fuel his criminal activities.
  • The Don: Despite not being in a mafia-based group, he fits the bill.
  • Fat Bastard: Subverted. He's not actually fat. It's all muscle.
  • Flunky Boss: Has no trouble letting his goons distract you.
  • Kick the Dog: When we start his level, he's trying to kill a SHIELD agent by cutting him in half with a laser.
  • Made of Iron: He can shrug off Captain America's shield throws, Spidey's webbing and Daredevil's batons, not to mention Spidey and Cap's above-average strength. What takes him down eventually? Not one, not two, but three chandeliers. Dropped on his head.
  • Not So Above It All: Typically seems to be rather smug and stoic, though if you leave him to idle, he'll start dancing with his cane.
  • Top-Heavy Guy: Kingpin's muscle is mostly around his chest and arms.

Elektra / Elektra Natchios

Kingpin's right-hand woman and assassin.

  • Adaptational Villainy: Played with. Elektra in the comics is mostly known as an Anti-Hero, but a hero nevertheless. This one takes inspiration from her origins as Kingpin's muscle and leaves it there, choosing not to have her Heel–Face Turn that follows in most adaptations.
  • Badass Normal: Able to pose a threat to Captain America, Spider-Man and Daredevil, though her boss is ultimately more powerful.
  • Co-Dragons: With Bullseye, to Kingpin.
  • Dark Action Girl: She's as strong as Bullseye, and a woman.
  • Knife Nut: Wields smaller swords in her fight against the heroes.
  • Professional Killer: Her job.

Bullseye / Lester

An assassin and Kingpin's right-hand man, alongside Elektra.

  • Adaptational Comic Relief: Bullseye in the comics is a disgusting man and unrepentant murderer. This version is goofy and downright hilarious.
  • Arch-Enemy: To Daredevil, although it's not brought up much.
  • Badass Normal: Able to pose a threat to Captain America, Spider-Man and Daredevil, though his boss is ultimately stronger.
  • Co-Dragons: With Elektra, to Kingpin.
  • Dark Is Evil: His costume is noticeably darker than Elektra's.
  • Professional Killer: His job.

The Vulture / Adrian Toomes

  • Adaptational Comic Relief: This version of The Vulture is much more stupid than his comics counterpart.
  • All Your Base Are Belong to Us: Attempts to wreck the Marvel Comics headquarters.
  • Arc Villain: For "Nuff Said".
  • Bald of Evil: He has no hair on his head whatsoever.
  • Dumb Muscle: Vulture falls for the same trick three times.
  • Too Dumb to Live: He falls for the same trick three times. He's first convinced to fly onto an electrified bird-house and gets shocked. Then he rushes at a cardboard cut-out of Iron Man and crashes. After that, he runs into a balloon version of Thor, and then flies through a hologram of Captain America. You think he'd wise up, but then Mister Fantastic fools him into landing in a giant bird-bath.

Electro / Maxwell Dillon

  • Arc Villain: Of "A Shock Withdrawal".
  • Glass Cannon: During "A Shock Withdrawal", he's clearly very powerful, but one direct hit is enough to down him.
  • Shock and Awe: His superpower.
  • Smug Snake: After the hostages are freed, he vows that there will be no holding back. He then goes down in one direct hit.

Shocker / Herman Schultz

  • Arc Villain: Of "A Shock Withdrawal".
  • Screw This, I'm Outta Here!: While he does try to stay and fight against Cap, Iron Man and Spider-Man, he eventually tries to run when he realises he is hopelessly outmatched.
  • Shock and Awe: Subverted, despite the name.
  • Villainous Valor: Unlike Electro, he at least tries to put up a decent fight against Cap, Iron Man and Spider-Man. While he may be hopelessly outmatched, he gets points for effort.


The Lizard / Dr Curt Connors

  • Adaptational Villainy: He's a little less caring about civilians or the consequences of his actions than in most other continuities, judging by the comments in his level, in that he only wants to perfect the formula to fix his arm.
  • Arc Villain: For "Reptilian Ruckus".
  • I'm a Humanitarian: One of his moves as the Lizard is to pick up people with his tail and dropping them into his gaping maws, probably the only character to be able to eat other characters.
  • Morally Ambiguous Doctorate: Averted. Doctor Curt Connors earned his doctorate fair and square, and is a decent guy. When he transforms, though...
  • Reptiles Are Abhorrent: In his transformed form, he turns into the Lizard. Heck, the name of his level is "Reptilian Ruckus".


Mysterio / Quentin Beck

Malekith the Accursed


  • Adaptational Comic Relief: Normally, when Sentinels show up, they're played very seriously regardless of how hard they are to take down. The boss fight against this one is hilarious.
  • Affably Evil: Surprisingly, yes. The Sentinel is rather polite and pathetic in its efforts to destroy mutantkind.
    Sentinel: Mutant? Anyone here a Mutant? We'd very much like to destroy you.
  • Fantastic Racism: Against mutants.
  • Ineffectual Sympathetic Villain: Borderline ineffectual, but yes. It politely asks for mutants to turn themselves over for extermination, and then begs for help if it struggles.
  • Killer Robot: A huge one, at that.
  • Not-So-Harmless Villain: While hardly lethal, the Sentinel can be surprisingly difficult to deal damage to if you don't have the right party.
  • Piñata Enemy
  • Redemption Demotion: Once unlocked, the Sentinel is shrunk down a bit and can take regular damage.

Red Hulk / General Thaddeus "Thunderbolt" Ross

  • Badass in a Nice Suit: In his human form.
  • Dark Is Evil: Wears a pair of black trousers, and is a bad person.
  • Evil Counterpart: To Hulk. Both are determined fighters, very tough, and extremely angry. The difference is that in his human identity, Hulk is ultimately smarter.
  • Four-Star Badass: As General Ross.
  • Made of Iron: Red Hulk can take a lot of damage, and it takes a super-strong character to beat him even though normal attacks knock him back.

Carnage / Cletus Kasady

Superior Spider-Man / Otto Octavius



J. Jonah Jameson

Voiced by: John DiMaggio

  • Jerkass: This version exaggerates his character to the point that all his nice tropes are missing.
  • Mean Boss: Not an outright bad one, but he's constantly shouting.

Joe Quesada

Axel Alonso

Aunt May

  • Joke Character: Hilariously enough, given by Deadpool due to her character token being the last prize he had left.

    DLC Characters 



Falcon / Samuel Wilson

Jane Foster

A-Bomb / Rick Jones
