"Hey, Agent, I hear you're vying for the best sidekick of the year award. You know what? You can have it. You can be the one to follow the Hulk around and keep him from smashing up the city too much, while I get to bask in the limelight. I'm okay with this."

Always a rebellious youth, Rick Jones accepted a dare to enter an abandoned testing ground for atomic bombs. Little did he know the area would be the testing ground for Bruce Banner's new gamma bomb. Saved from the explosion by Bruce Banner, who would turn into the Hulk as a result, Rick followed Banner as a trusted assistant and friend, even able to calm his alter-ego while he was enraged. Rick also served as the sidekick to Captain America and would later trade places with Captain Marvel and Mar-vell's son, Genis-vell. Recently, Rick was abducted by the Leader and M.O.D.O.K., who used the Abomination's DNA to transform him into A-Bomb.

Agent Venom
"Ready for deployment, Agent. Rest assured, I have full control. I'm not the symbiote. And if you want the symbiote...well, I'd strongly advise you to reconsider. Sir."

Ironically, Peter Parker's worst enemy and Spider-Man's greatest fan are the same person: Eugene "Flash" Thompson. After losing his legs while serving in the military, Flash's superiors made him an offer he couldn't refuse: To become the next host of the Venom symbiote, turning him into a super-solder with enhanced strength, agility, and, most importantly to Flash...the ability to walk again. However, the deal was not without peril; as Agent Venom, Flash must maintain constant mental discipline, lest the alien symbiote seize control of his body and dominate him forever.

  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Rip to Shreds bypasses shields and deals extra damage against shielded targets.
  • Adaptive Armor: The symbiote is always this only it takes on the appearance of body armor.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: Permanent Bond grants a follow-up attack after single-target attacks.
  • Ascended Fanboy: He's Spidey's biggest fan, and he became the new Venom to have a chance to walk in the footsteps of his hero.
  • Combat Tentacles: He can sprout them for extra arms to shoot guns or while in Venom mode to strike and web his enemies.
  • Continuity Nod: Several of his ability names while Under Control allude to his football career - Go Long, Hail Mary, and the "blitz" part of Bullet Blitz.
  • Dark Is Not Evil
  • Desperation Attack: The lower his health, the more damage Hail Mary does.
  • Guns Akimbo
  • Healing Factor: His Symbiotic Relationship passive, gradually grants health over combat and has chance to remove debuffs each round.
  • Heroic Host
  • Hulk Out: When his allies are threatened and symbiote is Out of Control, Venom becomes significantly beefier and way more angry.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: If his Eat Your Brains attack is of any example.
  • The Leader: One possible upgrade for Flash allows him to buff his allies with tactical Counter-Attack and is called "Squad Leader", reflecting his military background. Surprisingly, he retains this trait even when going Ax-Crazy.
  • Legacy Character: He's the fourth Venom; overlapping with Redeeming Replacement, he's the most unambiguously heroic of them all.
  • Military Superhero
  • Spikes of Heroism
  • Splash Damage: Hail Mary applies Burning and Bleeding to other targets.
  • Split Personality Take Over: If an ally is hit, he gains a chance to go Out of Control (guaranteed if they're KO'ed) and becomes Classic Venom with a new moveset and class. While in Venom mode, he gains chance to revert back into Flash Thompson after making successful attack, which is guaranteed to happen if the target was put down for good. He also tends to rage and often attacks randomly chosen enemy but the one he's ordered to instead.
  • Stance System: An uncontrolled one. He has a chance of going berserk and transforming into his monstrous Venom form.
  • Super Hero Packing Heat: While as Flash Thompson, he uses various firearms.
  • Super-Powered Evil Side
  • Super Soldier
  • Weaksauce Weakness: Like in the comics, he's vulnerable to sonic and fire attacks.

While imprisoned, Scott's wife decided to divorce him and take primary custody over their daughter, Cassie. Released early for his good behavior, Scott seeks a second chance with his daughter, his work, and in life.

"What? Never seen an ankle bracelet before? I know. Clashes with the suit doesn't it? Well, if you guys didn't think I would run the first chance I get, we wouldn't have this fashion crisis. So you're going to take it off right? No? Well, it was worth a shot. Can't blame a girl for trying."

Janice Lincoln is the daughter of the superhuman monster, Tombstone. She idolized her father, but Janice was encouraged by her father to pursue a safer life. Janice studied law and eventually became a criminal defense lawyer at a high-end law firm. While settling a dispute between Baron Zemo and Fixer, she volunteered to join them as a Super Villain. Janice was given a suit of beetle armor and a persona to match. As a villain for hire, Janice sought to run her own group of Super Villains but was eventually captured and locked away in Ryker's. Agent Coulson decided to give her another chance working with S.H.I.E.L.D. as a form of community service.

Black Cat
"I'm not much of a joiner, Agent. But I'll do what's needed."

Child of a notorious cat burglar, Felicia Hardy took to the family business and adopted the persona of Black Cat to convince her adversaries that tangling with her would bring bad luck. She's not a burglar anymore (much), but she's still got the speed, power and reflexes of her namesake, enhanced by devices in her costume.

Black Widow
"Agent. I owe you one. Good to be a part of the team."

A genetically enhanced superspy product of KGB experimentation, Natasha Alianova escaped her Soviet masters and transformed herself into a valued S.H.I.E.L.D. operative. Superbly skilled in martial arts and a wide variety of customized weapons, she is the perfect infiltrator.

  • Damage-Increasing Debuff: She places the "Marked for Revenge" debuff on the latest opponent that attacks her, increasing all damage the target receives by 30%.
  • Double Agent: As a nod to the comics. Depending on the class, her Infiltrator Grey Suit allows her to take an extra turn against targeted opponents (as Tacticians would attack Blasters), while Tactician Grey Suit allows her to counterattack and move stealthily (as Infiltrators counter Tacticians).
  • Older Than They Look: Her youth is preserved thanks to the Red Room's serum.
  • Spy Catsuit: A full-body suit in black or grey is part of all three of her costumes.
  • Status-Buff Dispel: Made possible with a Flying Kick to the face. And her EISO has Disadvantage that neutralizes class bonuses.

"Whoever you need killed, I'll do it. Doesn't matter how dangerous it is. Remember, I've died once already. It wasn't that bad."

''The death of Elektra's father shattered her life of privilege and drove her to become the world's greatest assassin. Her relationship with Daredevil is long and complicated; at times her lover and ally, at others his greatest adversary. Her martial skill is nearly unparalleled, yet her fight against her personal demons is far from over.

An embodiment of feminine perfection, Amora the Enchantress learned the ways of magic through seduction and force. Hopelessly smitten with Thor, Amora has tried for millennia to seduce him and embroil him in her plots to take over Odin's throne. Failing, she turned against humanity believing Thor's love for Midgard, and perhaps Lady Sif, to be responsible for him spurring her affections. Sensing an opportunity with the escalating threat of The Worthy and Incursions, Amora seeks to prove herself as Thor's equal and worthy of his devotion.

"The brass says you could use a little help, Agent. You take the low road, and I'll take the high road."

Main article: The Falcon

"Tis my honor and my pleasure to fight by thy side, Agent. Though 'twouldst be an even greater pleasure if thou wouldst introduce me to yon emerald-hued maiden."

With a tongue as sharp as his blade, Fandral the Dashing is the epitome of the swashbuckling swordsman. Though given to arrogant jests at the expense of his friends Volstagg and Hogun, he is a steadfast companion and brave adventurer.

  • Badass Cape
  • Badass Beard: Of the Errol Fylnn-style.

  • Cool Sword: Wields a stylized Rapier.
  • Fun Personified: He's a swashbuckling super hero god who makes quips in during battle. Why wouldn't he be this?

  • Badass Longcoat: But of course.
  • Battle Couple: With Rogue during their Heroic Battle when they must fight a group of Prime Sentinels.
  • Berserk Button: Rogue gets kidnapped in the boss intro to SpecOps 16.1, and Gambit immediately steps up to go to her rescue.
    "Stand between me an' her, you gonna be talking out the other side of your mouth, sure."

She married Reed Richards after the founding of the Fantastic Four.

  • Lady of War: She is elegant in motion and attacks from range while showing enemies her Badass Back.

"For millennia, my people held themselves apart from the concerns of humanity. But this new, darker era requires a firmer hand. The inhumans will stand at your side."

Though often serving as the voice for her mute husband, Black Bolt, many believe that Queen Medusalith Amaquelin-Boltagon is the true ruler of the Inhumans. Her imperious bearing and resolute leadership are well-suited to the challenges her people face. But when a more-violent solution to those challenges is required, her psycho-kinetically controlled hair can be formed into tentacles, shields, and blades stronger and sharper than steel.

"Yes, I'm reading your mind. No, I don't really care how you feel about it. It's better if you just accept it and move on. ...That's a horrible thought, you should be ashamed of yourself."

Shanna the She-Devil
"A lot of people underestimate the Savage Land, Agent. That's good. Someone needs to keep the dinosaurs fed. But you seem to respect the land. For that, you have my friendship, and my spear."

Born in the jungles of Zaire, Shanna O'Hara learned at an early age to live off the land, even amidst the deadliest of environments. Her abilities only increased when she was resurrected with the life force of the Savage Land, giving her the strength and speed of a dozen men. So long as the Savage Land thrives, so will Shanna.

"Hey, I was hoping I wouldn't be the last one asked to dance. Point me at the bad guys and let's go!"

Raised by his Uncle Ben and Aunt May after his parents died, young Peter Parker was a shy but funny boy unexpectedly transformed by the bite of a radioactive spider. 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.

  • All Webbed Up: Spidey can web up his targets, which reduces an enemy's attack and defense.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing
  • Badass Bookworm
  • Boring, but Practical: 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.
  • Deadpan Snarker: But of course.
  • Fun Personified: Your friendly neighborhood wisecracker.
  • Powerup Let Down: prior to being revamped, fans don't think highly of Spidey's L9, especially in comparison to his L6note .

"Shall we dance together on the battlefield, my dear Agent? Don't worry, I'll show you the steps. Just try to keep up."

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.

  • Action Girl
  • Confusion Fu: As befitting a dancer and a complete troll who uses magic frequently, 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.
  • Dual Wielding: Not so much Dual Wielding as it is wielding six blades at once. Dual Wielding cubed!
  • Dance Battler
  • Dark Is Not Evil: Like Satana though, her loyalty is questionable.
  • Glass Cannon: Her L2 move, Flashbolt, allows her to deal incredibly high amounts of damage coupled with at least several abilities that allow Spiral to increase the entire team's stats while lowering the opponents at the same time.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: Wherever the hell she keeps the 4 other blades she seemingly pulls out of thin air is anybody's guess. At any given time she holds 2 and pulls out another 4 when attacking with her L1 move. With that costume no less, it would have to at least be a Hyperspace Arsenal just to hold all those blades without constricting her movement
  • Kame Hame Hadoken: Exhibits the famous release gesture when using Flashbolt and Time Spiral.
  • Magic Knight: She uses both magic and swords quite well.
  • Multi-Armed and Dangerous
  • Power Nullifier: Flashbolt applies Depower to an enemy, making them no longer applying status effects for 1 round.
  • Unwilling Roboticisation: 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.

"Hey, Agent. Glad to be back on the ol' mudball. Love what you've done with the place...
... except for what whole dubstep thing. Which supervillain thought of that?"

Abducted from Earth as a child and raised by space pirates, Peter Quill grew up to be kind of a jerk. Luckily, he found a team of other jerks in need of a leader: the Guardians of the Galaxy. When he's not hitting on alien girls or trying to convince people that he's famous, he can occasionally be found saving the galaxy.

"Pretty sure I've got at least three or four lives left in me, Agent. I can spare one for a good cause."

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. Whether as part of the Avengers or not, Tigra's passion for justice has carried her through her toughest battles.

  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Razor Claws and Frenzy applies Shred to enemy targets who are immune to bleeding. After an attack she also gains Sharpened Claws, allowing her next attack to become a guaranteed critical hit.
  • Action Girl
  • Amazing Technicolor Population: Orange with blue tiger stripes.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: Her Feral Instincts buff allows her to do follow-up attacks to single-target attacks if the target is bleeding.
  • Cat Girl: 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.
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Fights barefoot, probably to take advantage of the long claws on her feet.
  • Natural Weapon: Most of her attacks involve rending her enemies with her claws.
  • Stripperific: Goes into battle in a blue bikini.

Ultimate Spider-Man (Miles Morales)
"Hey, does this mean I get a badge? All agents get a badge, right? Aw man! Come On! I should totally get a badge. I guess some things never change."

This alternate Ultimate Spider-Man is Miles Morales. He was also bitten by a radioactive spider which gave him abilities similar to our own Spider-Man. Miles initially refused to become a Super Hero, wishing to live a normal life, but after he witnessed the death of his predecessor,he decided to use his abilities to help others and live to the very mantra that is seems most Spiders live by, that with great power comes great responsibility.

Victor Mancha
"I don't know much about you, Agent, but you seem pretty cool. I mean, just look at all the amazing heroes you have at your side. And now you want me to join too? Sign me up!"

Victor Mancha was an average high school student with a love for superheroes until he met the Runaways. On that day, Victor discovered that he is a cyborg, created from the DNA of his mother, Marianella Mancha, and the technology of Ultron. With his plans revealed, Ultron murders Victor's mother and takes control of Victor. With the help of the Runaways, Victor breaks free of Ultron's control. After defeating Ultron, Victor decides to join the Runaways in order to prove that he will never be like his creator: a mechanical monster.

  • Ai Is A Crapshoot: Like his "brother" Vision, he breaks free from Ultron and turns on him.

The Wasp
"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. In time she left Pym's shadow to become a hero and leader in her own right, and one of the most steadfast members of the Avengers. She was one of the founders of the Avengers.

  • Action Girl
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: 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.
  • Ascended Glitch: 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 certain items and heroes, and for certain Stance System-using heroes to change classes faster.
  • Counter-Attack: Her Opportunist passive allows her chance to counter any enemy with Opportunity debuffs that attacks Wasp or an ally.
  • Fashionista: She's included in the Fashionista Team-up bonus which is a nod to her being a fashion designer in the comics.
  • Flying Firepower: She can fly and fire bio-electric energy blasts.
  • Giant Fist of Smashing: Her "Fist Bump" attack.
  • Sarcastic Devotee: 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.
  • Winged Humanoid: Of the insect-wings variety.

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: Angel, Beast, Blue Marvel, Colleen Wing, The Destroyer, Mockingbird, Moon Knight, Punisher, Red She-Hulk, Rogue, Silk, SpiderManNoir, Taskmaster, White Tiger.


"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.

  • Demoted to Extra: Angel still stands out as the one PVP hero to get the least exposure on in the storyline of the game (either in SpecOps or in normal missions); his only time in the limelight is as a Guest-Star Party Member vs. Blizzard in Chapter 4. Most other PVP heroes before (Deadpool in particular) and after him have larger roles in comparison. Again, this harkens back to the controversial conclusion to PVP season 9 (Angel's season).
  • Auto-Revive: 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.
  • Chest Insignia: In his default costume, a halo.
  • Combat Medic: 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.
  • Our Angels Are Different: 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.
  • Power Nullifier: 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.
  • Stationary Wings: Averted. His wings flap back and forth constantly, even in his 'idle' animation.
  • Super Empowering: All of his moves give himself and/or other allies random buffs.
  • Theme Naming: His skillset as X-Force Archangel are named after the Four Horsemen of Apocalypse, wherein Archangel had been a former Horseman of Death.
  • What Kind of Lame Power Is Heart, Anyway?: 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". Which may also be somewhat ironic seeing as Warren at the beginning of his career, would have been most likely to complain about his "Heart" status.
  • Winged Humanoid: 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.

  • As the Good Book Says...: As Pestilence, he quotes passages in the bible relating to the horsemen and the apocalypse.
  • Awesome by Analysis: Grants an "Epiphany" buff to his team via the "Bleak House" passive when enemies attack, causing a guaranteed crit for their next attack.
  • Badass Bookworm: 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.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: during SpecOp 16, courtesy of Apocalypse.
  • Cat Folk: Resembles the "Cat Beast" of 616 continuity.
  • Charged Attack: 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.
  • Counter-Attack: 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".
  • Does Not Like Shoes: Might be "cannot wear shoes."
  • Foil: Pestilence is designed to shut down Combat Medics like Rescue and Angel who rely on stacking buffs, shields, and debuff removals.
  • Gas Mask Mooks: As Pestilence.
  • Genius Bruiser: Furry, big, super-strong, agile and Nobel-level intelligent.
  • Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Wonder Man. They even have a special teamup bonus, 'Rad Bromance'.
  • Natural Weapon: He doesn't need any weapon to fight, just the claws on his hands and feet.
  • Plague Master: As Pestilence his actions and abilities are focused spreading certain debuffs among teams and disabling any effect remove. His Faustian Bargain passive allows all allies with certain debuffs (i.e. Weakened, Dizzy, Exposed, Poison etc.) to infect enemies by applying those debuffs via attack. His Paradise Lost passive suppresses most effect prevent or removes debuffs from both allies and enemies.
    • He can also apply Iso-8 Contagian: 3 debuff to all enemies via Masque of the Red Death. The carrier of said debuff can pass it onto other target(s) via attack until the countdown ends. Afterwards it morphs into an outbreak causing quite several debilitating debuffs.
  • Power Nullifier: The "Generalised" debuff blocks all class advantages. In his Pestilence costume, he can also apply Nanoplague debuff via his Heart of Darkness attack blocking all beneficial buffs.
  • Red Eyes, Take Warning: In his Pestilence costume.
  • The Social Darwinist: He becomes this after being transformed into Pestilence. He makes claims that evolution marches on and the old must be destroyed.
  • Super Empowering: His "The Sun Also Rises" move gives himself and other allies random buffs along the ability to counter-attack the next attack.
  • Walking Wasteland: Wolverine has spotted Beast/Pestilence...which Captain Britain notes is not actually a difficult task since civilians in the immediate area are suddenly stricken with various plagues. On the Sliding Scale of Gameplay and Story Integration, it's a bit of the Conspicuous type.
  • You Gotta Have Blue Fur

Blue Marvel
"Agent, I am here to let you know that I will do whatever is right, wherever and whenever it needs to be done. I do not care for what anyone may think. Not anymore."

Dr. Adam Brashear gained incredible powers over Antimatter after he was exposed to an unexpected explosion by an experimental Antimatter reactor. Donning the Super Hero identity of the Blue Marvel, Adam became one of the most popular heroes of his time, but when his identity and race became public after a deadly fight, he was asked to step down and retire. Disillusioned, Adam went into seclusion and focused on academia, becoming a tenured professor and family man. When Adam's friend and arch-nemesis, the Anti-Man, returned, it brought Adam out of retirement. From his secret base, the Blue Marvel watches over Earth as a part of the Mighty Avengers. unable to return to a normal life and is continuously drawn into a life of superheroics.

  • Badass Bookworm: One of the few heroes who can share the Smartest Man in the Room passive, and a tenured professor.
  • Combo Platter Powers: Aside from controlling antimatter particles, he can fly, is virtually invulnerable, ages slowly, and can survive in the vacuum of space.
  • Deliberate Values Dissonance: Forced to step down from being a hero due to the racial tension of the 1950s and 60s.
  • I Just Want to Be Normal: As his profile seems to indicate, he wants to return to a normal life but is constantly drawn back into conflict.

Colleen Wing
"Hi there, Agent. Misty said you needed some extra help out there? How do I know you? Well, news kind of spreads fast in the super hero community, and I'm a total gossip magnet. Don't worry, they mostly say nice things about you... mostly."

After her mother was killed by an unknown assailant, Colleen Wing grew up with her grandfather in the northern mountains of Honshu. As the only grandchild, Colleen learned the arts of the samurai from her grandfather as per family tradition. Eventually Colleen made her home in New York City where she became involved in a gunfight. Saved by the policewoman, Misty Knight, Colleen quickly became fast friends with her savior. When Misty was injured in a terrorist attack, Colleen supported her friend and encouraged her to forge ahead. She joined Misty in creating Nightwing Restorations, and the two became known for their martial prowess as "the Daughters of the Dragon." Together, Misty and Colleen clean the streets of New York, commonly teaming up with the Heroes for Hire, Luke Cage and Iron Fist.


Loki:Do not worry, Agent. The essence I have collected to power the Destroyer will prevent it from disobeying your orders. It's perfectly safe. Trust me.

The Destroyer is a metal construct, crafted by a metal stronger than even Uru and empowered by the All-Father, Odin. A weapon forged against the Celestials, the Destroyer was lost for ages until Loki discovered it and used it to attack his hated half-brother Thor. It can only animate by assuming the life force of another, but once it does, it is nearly invincible. To say who's life-force resides in the armour a mystery.

" 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.

  • Action Girl
  • Adaptive Ability: If Mockingbird is struck by a non-Generalist enemy, her class type shifts to her attacker's counter-class, which is also one of the best ways to take her down if you plan accordingly.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: She has a real mockingbird's ability to mimic; adopting the fighting stance to counter any class.
  • Awesomeness by Analysis: She can identify her opponents' Weak Point and thus do a lot of damage when she hits, even without superpowers.
  • Badass in Distress: The plot of her Spec Ops involved having to rescue her.
  • Badass Normal: She has no superpowers or special tech, just fighting skill and a pair of battle staves.
  • Badass Bookworm: Along with being a kick-ass secret agent, she is also a Biochemist.
  • 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.
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: In Spec Ops 1, she was abducted by the Hellfire Club and sent against the Avengers.
    • And then, in 2.9, she had to go and pick up a hammer.
  • Goggles Do Something Unusual
  • It's Personal: While Hawkeye volunteers to avenge her against the Wrecker in Spec Ops 1, she tells him that this is her score to settle.
  • Making a Spectacle of Yourself: 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.
  • Stance System: Can change her class when attacked by an enemy with a class, as well as when attacking after using "Critical Intel".
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: 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.
  • You Just Had to Say It: This happens during Heroic battle after she takes out Baron Zemo's first mook:
    Mockingbird: Come on, Zemo. Only one goon for me to take out? You must be getting low on the Hydra totem pole.
    Baron Zemo: You forget, my dear. Cut off one heard...
    Mockingbird: Me and my big mouth.

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 multiple 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.

  • Blood Knight
  • Confusion Fu: unlike other heroes who use a Stance System, Moon Knight class changes automatically during each turn. There is no specific order for his class change like the Punisher or Omega Sentinel either.
  • The Cowl
  • Dark Is Not Evil
  • Double Consciousness: 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.
  • The Faceless
  • In the Hood
  • Magikarp Power: While his first three attacks rely on the Retribution buff to one degree or another, he has no direct way to build Retribution (except by sitting around and waiting to get attacked) until he gets his fourth and final attack, which makes him a lot easier to manage.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Moon Knight's Fist of Khonshu attack can become this depending on the number of stacks his Retribution buff currently has.
  • Secret Identity Identity: The life he's leading is hard on his sanity, to say the least.
  • Split Personality: 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.
  • Wild Card: 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.

  • Assist Character: Punisher's companion Microchip drives the famous Battle Van at Frank's foes.
  • Badass Normal: He fights with impressive determination and a huge pile of weapons.
  • Blood Knight: He's in the Alliance to shoot whoever needs shooting.
  • Car Fu: The Battle Van, which also happens to be his ultimate attack.
  • Crazy-Prepared: 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.
  • Crusading Widower: The driving force for Frank's Roaring Rampage of Revenge is the murder of his entire family.
  • Guns Akimbo: In certain stances.
  • Hyperspace Arsenal: 1 man, 12 different weapons...
  • Magikarp Power: Hilariously, he fits the criteria with having multiple forms of offense while lacking in damage. When his e-iso and a-iso are earned, with his e-iso granting him class changes in the vein of Mockingbird and an extra turn when at 30% health or lower and his a-iso making his class change move grant him it's class benefit and improving his Battle Van to prevent reviving from its damage as well as exploiting Damage Over Time effects and even Punisher's own debuffs. TookALevelInBadass is an understatement.
  • More Dakka: As a "walking armory," he has lots of guns. Most of them fire lots of times.
  • Multi-Ranged Master: Wields 5 different guns and can throw 6 different types of grenades.
  • Splash Damage: His Generalist L6, "Frag Grenade", causes Bleeding on the main target's teammates.
  • Stance System: Can switch between the six classes and his weapons alongside them, gaining new abilities and a class-specific buff with each change.
  • Walking Armory: His sprite is bristling with guns, and he can pull more from...somewhere. His Level 2 ability is even called this for added effect.

Red She-Hulk
"Let's get this straight, Agent. I don't need to be watched, not by you, not by S.H.I.E.L.D., and definitely not by Bruce or my father. I'm not a damsel that needs saving. I'm here because I want to be there fighting with the rest of you. We clear? Good. Let's kick some butt!"

Betty Ross's life has been consumed by a battle between two men, her father and Bruce Banner. Even before the gamma accident turned Bruce Banner into the Hulk, Betty's attraction to him led to her father developing a disdain for the brilliant scientist. Despite her father's best efforts, Betty and Bruce were eventually married. But after her father was transformed into the Red Hulk and the Abomination tried to poison her, Betty and Bruce's relationship suffered, and they separated. Betty was later abducted and transformed into the Red She-Hulk by the Leader.

"Power you can't control ain't real power, it's a curse. You can't control this Iso stuff, Sugah. I'll help, but don't expect me to hold yer hand."

Nearly killing the first boy she kissed, Anna-Marie has always struggled to control her mutant gift. With the ability to absorb powers and memories at a cost, she ran away from home to avoid hurting others. She was taken in by Mystique who became a mother figure for the conflicted girl and recruited her to the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants. After permanently absorbing the powers of Ms. Marvel, she realized that she had inherited the hero's personality as it struggled for control of her mind. Unable to control of her thoughts, and fearing for her own sanity, she turned to Professor X for his telepathic help, eventually joining the X-men and redeeming herself.

  • Action Girl

  • Blessed with Suck
  • Brainwashed and Crazy: during SpecOp 16, courtesy of Apocalypse.
  • Civvie Spandex: Her Uncanny costume.
  • Counter-Attack: Her new passive Southern Hospitality functions as this. When an ally is attacked, there is chance for her to respond by using Absorb Power on the attacker gaining their class' advantage.
  • Cursed with Awesome: Her abilities allow her to take on multiple powers at any given time at the cost of dealing potentially life-threatening injuries whomever she stole the powers from.
  • Ditto Fighter: By using her Absorb Power attack, she can gain the class advantages of her target for a few rounds.
  • Evil Costume Switch: As Famine.
  • Flying Brick: After she permanently absorbed Ms. Marvel's powers.
  • Hour of Power: Stolen class abilities only last for a few turns, but they can stack.
  • Leeroy Jenkins: Her personality is more of "fight first, reason later" especially in Season 2 Chapter 3.
  • Life Drain/Mana Drain: The effects of her Drain Essence ability.
  • Monochromatic Eyes: As Famine.
  • Power Copying: While she can't copy her target's moves per se, Rogue can copy her target's class advantages as well as steal health and stamina.
  • Shoryuken: Southern Comfort.
  • Skunk Stripe: Her signature patch of white hair in what is otherwise an auburn mane.
  • Status-Buff Dispel: as Famine, her Scarcity passive applies Shortfall to the enemy team, removing a buff per turn.

"Oh, uh, hey, listen. I haven't really been at this that long, but... I'm here to help. You helped rescue me from that Goblin guy, and this isn't over by a longshot. Just let me know what I can do to help. "

Cindy Moon was a gifted child with an eidetic memory. Bitten by the same radioactive spider that created her world's Spider-Man, Cindy was locked away in a bunker to hide her from the Inheritors. Eventually, Spider-Man learned of her existence and sought her out only to draw the attention of the Inheritors and set of a chain of events that would affect the Spider-Verse.

Spider-Man Noir
"Experience has taught me never to trust a policeman. Just when you think one's all right, they turn corrupt. Alright, Agent. I'm going to trust you, but don't go proving me right."

In an alternate reality still in the midst of the Great Depression, the Goblin murdered Ben Parker for encouraging a strike on the local sweatshops. Seeking justice, Peter Parker became an investigative journalist in an attempt to expose the corruption in New York. One evening, Peter was investigating a warehouse where the Goblin's henchmen were housing stolen artifacts. An ancient artifact of a spider statue broke open, releasing a swarm of spiders hidden within. One of these spiders bit Peter causing him to pass out and dream of an ancient spider god. When Peter came to, he discovered that he had been gifted with arachnid-like superpowers. Donning a costume using parts of his Uncle Ben's World War I airman uniform, he became the violent vigilante, The Spider-Man.

"Feels weird to be making an honest living. At least, as honest as it ever gets, eh Agent? ...oh yeah, and sorry about that shield in the face last time. No hard feelings, right?"

With his "photographic reflexes", Tony Masters can duplicate any fighting style he observes. His skills are quite literally the equal of Captain America, Hawkeye, and a multitude of other heroes and villains. After becoming one of the world's foremost mercenaries, he opened several "academies", training any aspiring villain with enough cash to enroll. Beyond that, little is known about Taskmaster; even he has forgotten much of his past, overwriting his memories with ever more combat data.

White Tiger
"My brother gave his life building a legacy as the White Tiger, and my family was murdered in cold blood.
I have seen the worst of humanity, Agent, and I have become the monster that even the monsters fear. Don't worry, I'm not hunting you."

Ava Ayala's brother, Hector, was the original White Tiger using the Jade Tiger amulet as his source of power. He was wrongfully convicted of murder, and while trying to escape the authorities, was shot and killed. The jade amulet passed to Ava's niece, Angela, whose career as a Super Hero was all too brief when the Hand captured, brainwashed, and corrupted her into an assassin. Angela was incarcerated, and the amulet now passed to Ava. Determined to avenge and restore her family's name, Ava Ayala took on the mantle of the White Tiger and has become the avatar of the primal tiger god of fear contained within the jade amulet. Ava wields the power of the White Tiger against Earth's greatest threats while fighting to contain the addictive and dangerous force that threatens to possess her.

  • Absurdly Sharp Claws: Like Tigra, she applied Shred to enemy targets who were immune to bleeding.
  • Animal-Themed Superbeing: Obviously, a white tiger. She not only uses her own claws to attack, but her most powerful attack summons the spirit of a white tiger to maul a chosen enemy.
  • Attack! Attack! Attack!: She caused bleeding, and then got follow-up attacks on bleeding enemies, allowing her to attack several times in a row.
  • Super Power Lottery: She was released right before the game closed, and so didn't seem to receive a balance pass. She could halve enemies stats, restored health each turn, got stronger whenever she was attacked, had a high chance of pre-countering attacks directed at her, and was immune to damage-over-time and fear effects and highly resistant to stun, and those were just her passives. Her actual attacks allowed her to literally double her own stats, make every attack of hers cause Bleed and Hemorrhage, and automatic follow-up attacks against bleeding opponents. The only enemies she didn't reduce to uselessness were robots (who were immune to her stat-decreasing debuff and her bleeds), but even those she could still brute force her way through.


How well does it match the trope?
