- Alliterative Name: In classic Marvel fashion; his real name is Carl "Crusher" Creel.
- Bald of Evil: Completely bald, and one of the few villains in the playable roster who has never had a redemptive arc or a brief period of heroism.
- Battle Couple: With his wife, Titania. Pairing them grants the "Solid Couple" team bonus.
- Bring the Anchor Along: The ball and chain he uses as a weapon is possibly the most iconic thing about him.
- Dumb Muscle: Creel is pretty dumb, but he hits things hard and is skilled enough to put up a fight against Thor and other Asgardians. Ultimately though he's just a pawn in Loki's schemes.
- Power Copying: His main power is to copy the properties of whatever material he can touch. He can even copy the properties of Mjolnir and become Uru metal.
- Absurdly Sharp Claws: The Venom Symbiote gives him extremely sharp claws, which he uses to full effect in several of his skills.
- Anti-Hero Team: He was on Red Hulk's version of the Thunderbolts for a while. In game, he gets a team bonus when paired with Red Hulk and Elektra because of it.
- Artificial Limbs: Flash Thompson lost both his legs while serving his country. When he's bonded to the Venom symbiote, it creates artificial legs for him to walk on.
- Ascended Fanboy: Flash was the president of the Spider-Man Fan Club as a teenager. He joined the army because he didn't have powers like Spider-Man, but still wanted to do good like him. When he was presented with the Venom Symbiote and offered the chance to become a government backed Spider-Man super soldier, and get his legs back in the process, Flash jumped at the opportunity.
- Bash Brothers: With Spider-Man. Out of the suit, Flash and Peter are close friends but unaware of each other's secret identities. In the costumes, Venom idolizes Spider-Man and wants to work with him, but Peter doesn't trust the Symbiote, especially one that's running around with guns. The "Old Enemies, New Allies" team bonus applies when they're paired together.
- Dark Is Not Evil: He's a Venom host, with all the teeth and claws that implies, but he's as big a boyscout as Spider-Man himself- limiting his killing as much as possible and annoying his teammates with his optimism.
- Demonic Possession: He has been chosen to bear a Hell-Mark; a symbol of power and potential to ascend to lordship over the realms of Hell, and allowing his symbiote to transform into a more demonic form. His teammate Red Hulk was given one as well, and they get a team bonus for it, and Daimon Hellstrom, who had a hand in it as well, gets a separate team bonus with Flash for it.
- Fire-Forged Friends: Flash and the Venom Symbiote; in the comics, the Symbiote ultimately becomes so fond of Thompson that it chooses him over Eddie Brock.
- Heroic Host: Unlike most other Venom hosts, Flash Thompson is unambiguously heroic- his boyscout goodness contrasting with Eddie Brock's lethal protector anti-hero status.
- Top-Heavy Guy: His default look, based on his controversial Space Knight appearance.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: His skin is a bright blue.
- Arch-Enemy: To Magneto; he captures and tortures Magneto's children and has killed most of his X-Men in the Age of Apocalypse storyline.

- Hero Killer: In at least one of the rotating cycles of time, Apocalypse was able to take over the world, and explicitly killing numerous X-Men.
- The Man Behind the Man: He's responsible for the actions of beings like Dark Beast. He also has his own Men Behind the Man; The Celestials, who have granted him their technology to ensure that evolution is progressing according to their designs.
- More Than Mind Control: His corruption of former Heroes is as much because of his ability to persuade and inspire fear as it is any power-given mental dominance.
- Powered Armor: He's encased in a set, based on Celestial designs, in his default costume.
- FaceHeel Turn: Apocalypse corrupts him, and he becomes Dark Beast in the Age of Apocalypse.
- Genius Bruiser: Beast is a combat hero and can dive into the thick of it with the best of them, but his primary role in the story is as a genius inventor, using his skills and the Inhuman's technology to try to stop Maximus' plot.
- The Heart: Beast is the connective tissue that holds the X-Men to the rest of the Marvel Universe. He's had a long tenure with the Avengers (and has team bonuses with Black Widow, Moon Knight, Hawkeye, War Machine and Valkyrie), and he's the one insistent that the mutants trust and work beside the Inhuman Royal Family (netting a team bonus with Medusa) even when his fellow teammates like Wolverine and Cylcops insist that they're involved in a Mutant problem and should be left alone from the outside world.
- Heroes Want Redheads: He's secretly in love with Jean Grey- though he doesn't make it known like Cyclops and Wolverine. The "Hidden Heart" team bonus is granted when the two are paired together.
- Lightning Bruiser: He's extremely fast, and his mutant powers give him excellent flexibility and dexterity. Many of his skills involve rolling, leaping and dashing around with speed and style.
- Omnidisciplinary Scientist: His role in the story involves constructing machines to cure his fellow X-Men of Maximus' corruption, building machines to nullify powers and more. After his corruption, he picks up genetic manipulation and evolutionary biology as well.
- Sesquipedalian Loquaciousness: Most of his dialogue is written this way, in classic fashion.
- The Smart Guy: He plays this role to the initial line-up of X-Men in-game. While he's a combat character and plenty effective at it, he's primarily involved to build things and research things behind the scenes during the Rise of the X-Men quest. During the Age of Apocalypse, he plays this role among Apocalypse's followers as well.
- Underwear of Power: His default costume, which is just a pair of underwear and an X-Men belt.
- Absurdly Sharp Claws: His basic attacks, Claw Slash 1* skill, his 5* skill Essence of the Panther, and his 6* ultimate skill, Unseen Predator, all make use of his Vibranium claws to shred enemies with flashy effects and cause bleed damage.
- Asskicking Equals Authority: T'Challa didn't get to be the Black Panther just because his father was the one before him, and he didn't get to be King of Wakanda just because he was the Black Panther; both titles he had to fight and earn through his own skills.
- Animal-Themed Superbeing: Panthers, naturally.
- The Blade Always Lands Pointy End In: His 3* skill, Energy Dagger, involves throwing a fan of vibranium throwing knives in an arc, striking several opponents.
- Bulletproof Vest: His costume is coated in Vibranium. On a more meta level, he's one of the characters to have an original costume based on his classic look designed by Netmarble, which emphasizes the armored nature by looking a lot like a traditional Bulletproof Vest.
- Clothes Make the Superman: Less so than traditional examples, but the Black Panther gear transforms T'Challa from being around Captain America level strength, to a Vibranium-packed warrior king.
- Genius Bruiser: He's a high DPS dealing Combat class character, and he's one of the smartest men in the Marvel Universe.
- Heroic Lineage: His father was the Black Panther before him.
- Javelin Thrower: One of his starting skills, Energy Spear, involves throwing a Vibranium-tipped spear like a Javelin at a single target.
- Legacy Character: The mantle of the Black Panther has passed to the Chieftain of the Panther Tribe for centuries; T'Challa is only the most recent to wear the cowl, succeeding his deceased father.
- Panthera Awesome: Naturally, Black Panther is emulating the animal of the same name.
- Royals Who Actually Do Something: He's a key member of the primary team from the Bad Future timeline, a strong (though late unlockable) character in the main game, and one of the core focus characters of the World Boss raids against Corvus Glaive, Proxima Midnight and Black Dwarf.
- Superhero Sobriquets: When Daredevil was dead following his possession and corruption by The Hand, T'Challa took up his place in Hell's Kitchen, adopting his Man Without Fear sobriquet. He and DD gain a team bonus of the same name when paired together referencing it.
- Well-Intentioned Extremist: By the time Black Panther shows up again in the story after the disastrous tutorial, He's already given up hope on the idea of saving both timeline during an incursion, and fully intends to kill the player and their team to save his own.
- Anti-Hero: Blade isn't much for ideals; he just wants to kill as many Vampires as he can.
- Awesomeness by Analysis: His 3* Skill, Catching Weak Point, increases his Critical Rate for a brief time due to his ability to analyze his foes and take advantage of their weaknesses.
- Badass Normal: Blade started his career as a normal human who was immune to Vampire bites; this era is represented in his "70's Classic" uniform.
- Darker and Edgier: On the sliding scale of "dark and edgy" to "idealistic and pure" in the Marvel Universe, he's firmly in the former; he gains a team-up bonus for allying with fellow dark and edgy heroes Punisher and Ghost Rider called "Heroes of the Darkness", which boosts their attack, defense and defense penetration.
- Empowered Badass Normal: After a fight with Morbius, the Living Vampire, Blade was actually transformed and has become more in-line with his modern self, as depicted in his default uniform.
- Blade Spam: Blade's second skill, Sword of Storm, is a flurry of rapid sword strikes that hit all around him and damages multiple foes.
- Dash Attack: His first skill, Sword Edge, is a Devil May Cry style Stinger that charges forward with his blade.
- Daywalking Vampire: TheDaywalker; Blade's half-human side allows him to walk in the daylight without negative effects, despite otherwise possessing all the abilities of a Vampire.
- Dhampyr: His mother was turned into a Vampire while he was still developing in the womb, causing him to develop a unique mutation of the Vampire curse, granting him most of the strengths and few of the weaknesses associated with Vampirism.
- Fur Against Fang: He gets a Team Bonus with Warwolf recognizing the Vampire-Werewolf rivalry, which boosts the pair's defense penetration and recovery rate.
- Gotta Kill Them All: Blade won't rest until he's killed every Vampire in the Marvel Universe.
- Hunter of Monsters: He's a monster hunter, though he's primarily specialized in hunting Vampires. When paired with fellow monster-hunter, Elsa Bloodstone, he gets a Team Bonus that increases the team's HP and dodge rate.
- Precision-Guided Boomerang: Carried over from his film incarnation, Blade is incredibly accurate with his Glaive, which appears in his ultimate 6* skill, Hemorrhage.

- Shotguns Are Just Better: He uses a four-barreled Shotgun as the final hit in his 5* skill, Blood Haze.
- Super Senses: As a half-vampire, he has access to vampiric senses, which manifest in-game as his passive skill, literally named Vampire Senses, which decreases his Crowd Control time.
- Sunglasses at Night: Blade is never seen without his iconic shades; so much so that they're even one of his upgradable gears.
- Vampiric Draining: His leadership, Daywalker, allows his team a chance to drain health and heal while attacking, thanks to his Vampiric hunger.
- Vampire Hunter: Easily the most well-known in the entire Marvel Universe, and the current page image. He's hunted Vampires for so long, his name has become The Dreaded to them.
- Van Helsing Hate Crimes: Played with; generally speaking, Blade may not be a big fan of the more sympathetic and heroic monsters of the Marvel Universe, but he's still willing to work beside heroes like Ghost Rider and Warwolf for the greater good.
- Arch-Enemy: He's Daredevil's, and arguably Elektra's as well.
- Ax-Crazy: Bullseye is a lunatic sadist with a Multiple-Choice Past and no regard for human life.
- Badass in a Nice Suit: He gains one in his Secret Wars: 1872 costume.
- Card-Carrying Villain: Bullseye always wanted to be the villain, and he relishes the opportunity his hitman lifestyle allows him to live out this fantasy.
- Empowered Badass Normal: He doesn't have any powers; he's just an incredible marksman and a deadly hand-to-hand fighter who has since had Vibranium grafted on to his skeleton.
- For the Evulz: Bullseye only does what he does for the joy of doing it; he never spends his vast sums of money earned as an assassin, and he doesn't have grand goals- he just likes hurting people.
- Improbable Aiming Skills: Bullseye doesn't miss, no matter how impossible his shot seems to be. It doesn't matter if he's throwing knives, shooting guns, or even using playing cards.
- Improbable Weapon User: He's able to kill with literally any object he can get his hands on; in-game he makes use of playing cards.
- Knife Nut: Most of his moves involve using a wide array of throwing knives.

- Professional Killer: The best assassin in the Marvel Universe, having earned that title over the corpse of Elektra.
- Psycho for Hire: Though he doesn't take jobs he doesn't think will be fun, he's an assassin for hire who enjoys hurting people.

- Bash Brothers: Like in many adaptations, this is how his relationship with Tony is presented in-game.
- The Cape: He's every bit the noble paragon of truth and justice here that he is in the comics and the MCU.
- The Captain: Naturally.
- Captain Patriotic: He's the page image for a reason, after all.
- Determinator: He's Captain America.
- Heroic Willpower: "Heroism", his passive skill unlocked at 4 Star Rank, which reduces the effects of poison and chill effects through sheer willpower.
- Legacy Character: The Secret Wars 2099 costume released during the Secret Wars update, transforms Steve into Roberta Mendez, the Captain America of Alchemax's Avengers.
- Luckily, My Shield Will Protect Me: Thanks to his Shield absorbing physical damage, he's one of the better early game tanks. His Age of Ultron uniform goes even further, making him extremely annoying to damage without Energy-based attacks.
- Older Than They Look: Captain America seems to have been unfrozen for a while now, based on his interactions with the rest of the cast, but he's confirmed to have been in the ice for at least 60 years in his profile.
- Shield Bash: "Valor" his second Skill, is a literal Shield Bash. His final five star skill, "Shield Strike" too.
- Super Serum: The origins of his powers: Dr. Erskine's Super Soldier Serum.
- Throwing Your Shield Always Works: His first skill, "Shield Throw", bounces his shield between several targets.
- Adaptive Armor: Being a Symbiote, Carnage effectively serves this function for Cletus.
- An Axe to Grind: Using his shapeshifting to transform his arms into weapons is Carnage's favorite combat tactic, and his preferred combat form are axes; they appear in a couple of his attacks.
- Ax-Crazy: Even before the Symbiote bonded to him, Cletus Kasady was a lunatic serial killer. Then he gained a shapeshifting alien super-armor.
- Cardboard Prison: He has a team bonus referencing his history of escaping prison, most notably at the beginning of the first volume of New Avengers, in "Escape from Ryker's Island" with Luke Cage and Daredevil.
- Enemy Mine: Carnage has several team bonuses based around this; "Symbiote Brothers" for teaming up with his Archnemesis Dad Venom, "Carnage Rebirth" for teaming up with Spider-Man and Venom, and "Carnage Vengeance" for teaming up with Spider-Man and Iron Man.
- HeelFace Turn: When the Red Skull stole Charles Xavier's powers and became the Red Onslaught, Scarlet Witch and Doctor Doom tried to use magic to invert his personality and allow Xavier to retake control; the attempt ended up inverting multiple characters, including Carnage, turning him into the heroic Carnage-Man. This is referenced in his "Inverted Heroes" team-up.
- Villain Team-Up: He and Yellowjacket have a team bonus called "Partners in Crime", increasing their HP and critical hit rate.
- Badass Normal: He doesn't have any powers, but he's one of Captain America's fiercest and most tenacious enemies.
- Blade Below the Shoulder: Hidden inside of Rumlow's gauntlets is a long blade weapon, which he pops for a couple of his attacks.
- Body Horror: In his default costume, Rumlow is based on his appearance in Captain America: Civil War, where he has recently survived horrific burns and scarring across his entire body. What little of his flesh can be seen beneath his mask is *haunting*.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: It's what happens when you have a burning building dropped on you.
- Power Fist: His Crossbones costume has large gauntlets built into it to allow him to hit hard enough to match Captain America.
- Adaptational Badass: In the comics, he's just a normal human and not a Deathlok, while in the MCU, he's a frequent victim of The Worf Effect and is quickly written out of focus. Here, he's a key character for meta-level Alliance Battle play, and is an important counterpick for Timeline PVP.
- Later averted, as changes to other characters, sends him down to the low-tier.
- Arm Cannon: Deathlok's forearm mounted Wrist Rocket, which is one of his upgradable gears and used in his 5* skill, Upgraded Missile. It can also fire a red laser beam, used in his 3* skill, SHIELD Soldier.
- The Atoner: The reason Deathlok joins up with Coulson and the cast is to help them stop the Inhumans after he delayed them long enough for Raina to escape, since the Inhumans coerced him into helping them by kidnapping his son.

- Defeat Means Friendship: He join Coulson's Team after they defeat him, revealing that he was only helping the Inhumans because they kidnapped his son.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: Deathlok has access to a red laser beam that he swipes across the ground, before spinning around and striking everyone in a radius around him, during his 3* skill.
- Guns Akimbo: Deathlok dual wields Assault Rifles for several moves.
- I Have Your Wife: Or, son rather. Deathlok is forced to work for the Inhumans after Raina kidnaps his son.
- Movie Superheroes Wear Black: His primarily look, taken from Agents of SHIELD, replaces his brighter colored comic colors with more generic black and grey leather, while hiding all of his cybernetics.
- Papa Wolf: Nothing will stop him from protecting his son.
- Scars Are Forever: His body is horribly scarred, accentuated by the cybernetics grafted to him underneath his skin.
- Animal-Themed Superbeing: Depending on his costume, either Octopi or Spiders.
- Arch-Enemy: He and Green Goblin are neck and neck for this title for Spider-Man; Doc Ock has the prestige of actually killing the Wallcrawler.
- Artificial Limbs: The four robotic legs are more than just a weapon or part of his costume; they're fused to his spine and a part of who he is.
- The Chessmaster: He sometimes goes by the name of "The Master Planner". During the story, he tries to manipulate the other villain factions while forming a new Sinister Six in order to best take advantage of the incursion events; however he's ultimately Out-Gambitted by MODOK and defeated by the player.
- Combat Tentacles: Doc Ock's namesake and primary form of offense comes from the four metal tentacles grafted onto his back.
- HeelFace Turn: His Superior Spider-Man costume changes him from a villain to a hero.
Drax the Destroyer
- Adaptation Species Change: Played with; Drax is listed as an "Alien" instead of a human, but he's also still identified as "Arthur Sampson Douglas", the name of his human self in the comics.
- The Big Guy: Drax is the muscle of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
- Composite Character: Drax looks like his MCU self, and has his MCU self's simple minded personality, but he seems to have a lot of his comic self's history, including once having the name Arthur Douglas, and having had a multitude of bodies.
- Dual Wielding: He dual wields knives in his move set.
- Heartbroken Badass: Drax is driven by the death of his family, leading him on a quest to take revenge on Thanos and Ronan.
- Leeroy Jenkins: When the rest of the Guardians are taken down through Ronan's divide and conquer strategy, Drax decides to just rush his ship, The Dark Aster, by himself, forcing the Avengers and the Guardians to save him.
- Walking Shirtless Scene: Neither costume gives Drax a shirt.
Giant Man (Hank Pym)
- Absent-Minded Professor: Frequently gets distracted by science.
- Badass Bookworm: Even moreso than the other genius characters in this game, as Hank is a scientist first, superhero second. That won't stop him from growing 50 feet and punching Frost Giants in the mouth.
- Battle Couple: Him and Wasp.
- Chekhov M.I.A.: Hank is mentioned during the main storyline multiple times, as Ultron is one of the core antagonists, but doesn't appear himself. He was added later in the Ant-Man expansion side story.
- Composite Character: Largely based on his comics self, but this version of Hank was also a mentor for Darren Cross just like the MCU version.
- Create Your Own Villain: He's responsible for Ultron's creation.
- For Science!: These are his ultimate motivations for almost everything he does.
- I Have Many Names: Hank Pym is the master of this. Not only does he go interchangeably by two first names (Hank or Henry), he's also been Ant-Man, Wasp, and Yellowjacket. He's currently using the name Giant Man, and has a uniform that changes his name to Goliath.
- Passing the Torch: He passed the Ant-Man persona to Scott Lang, and the Yellowjacket persona to Darren Cross.
- The Berserker: In the Inhuman Royal Family, he's by far the most volatile. He's also the only member of the family in the Combat class.
- The Big Guy: To the rest of the Royals.
- Carry a Big Stick: When he's not wiping enemies out with his powers, he's bashing them around with his fearsome mace.
- Fauns and Satyrs: The Terrigenesis has granted him bull legs, giving him a distinctly Satyr-esque appearance.
- Shockwave Stomp: Gorgon's primary power.
- Throwing Your Sword Always Works: One of his earliest skills, "Mace Throw", which does exactly what you assume it does.
- Undying Loyalty: While he's had his moments of conflict with them in the comics, in-game he's presented as incredibly loyal to the Royal Family. He gets the "For the Queen!" bonus with Medusa and "Faithful Warrior" when paired with Black Bolt.
- Adaptive Armor: Adaptive skin, to be more accurate; Groot's bark-like flesh moves and melds to suit the situation, changing his size, shape and giving him additional defensive options.
- Combat Medic: One of the only characters in the game that can provide healing to others in addition to himself, Groot has a skill dedicated to turning an area of effect into a healing ring, which will benefit himself, any allies in Co-Op modes, and your other characters should you switch to them.
- From a Single Cell: Groot has the power to regrow himself from a shard if destroyed, which is referenced in his 4* passive skill, which brings him back to life with half health after death.
- Gentle Giant: Groot generally doesn't go looking for fights; unfortunately his membership in the Guardians of the Galaxy leads to him getting into them anyway.
- Only the Chosen May Wield: Groot became a member of the Thor Corps during the Secret Wars update, worthy of his own hammer and gaining the powers of a Thor in one alternate costume.
- Plant Aliens: He's a giant, living tree.
- Pokémon Speak: "I am Groot".
- Shock and Awe: During Secret Wars, a version of Groot was recruited into the Thor Corps, gaining his own Mjolnir and enhancing his skills with lightning damage.
- Badass Mustache: Just like his comic counterpart, Hogun has a huge mustache.
- Black Vikings: He's not Aesir like his companions, and looks the part- bearing a more Mongolian appearance.
- Carry a Big Stick: His primary weapon is a mace, named Hridgandr.
- The Quiet One: He rarely speaks, which is a major factor in his nickname of "Hogun the Grim".
- The Stoic: Contrasting heavily with the rest of the warriors of Asgard, Hogun is grim, quiet and reflective.
- Straight Man: Plays this role to the rest of the Warriors Three.
- Adaptational Wimp: The Hulk is very much delegated as a lower tier character. His Maestro uniform improves him somewhat, boosting him up to average at best.
- Later averted with his Ragnorak uniform which does improve him into a high-tier charcater though he's still probably not a strong as the comics make him out to be.
- Badass Grandpa: Not the Hulk himself, but one of his costumes transformers Banner into the Maestro, a Bad Future alternate timeline version of himself who is well over 100 years old, has grown a Beard of Evil and conquered the apocalyptic hellscape of his world, killing numerous heroes and forcing everyone to stay in line.
- The Big Guy: He's this to most teams he's a part of.
- Dumb Muscle: While Bruce Banner is one of the smartest men on the planet, once he Hulks out, his alter ego has a much more limited mental capacity.
- Future Me Scares Me: Hulk really doesn't care for Maestro.
- Magic Pants: In all of his costumes, he has special pants that can accommodate him in both forms of his transformation. The Age of Ultron pants are even specially Avengers branded.
Hulk (Amadeus Cho)
- Affirmative Action Legacy: He's this to the Hulk.
- Asian and Nerdy: He's Korean-American, and one of the smartest men on the planet.
- Brains and Brawn: He used to just be the Brains to Hercules' Brawn- now that he's a Hulk, he's the Brains and the Brawn.
- Genius Sweet Tooth: Due to the strain of his enhanced intellect, Cho is constantly eating snacks.
- Insufferable Genius: He was once very proud and insistent on his position as the seventh smartest person on the planet; at least until Hank Pym returned from space and he learned that he was only eighth. Later on, he is bumped even lower down to 10th; an event that ultimately humbled him enough to grow out of the worst of his insufferable tendencies. This is commemorated in-game with the team up bonus "Number 7" between himself and Pym.
- Sidekick Graduations Stick: He used to be Hercules' sidekick- as the new Hulk, he's his own hero now.
- Totally Radical: He's not just the Hulk, he's the totally awesome Hulk.
- You Remind Me of X: Amadeus reminds Thor of Loki when they were Cho's age so much that it makes Thor uncomfortable; the three have a team-up bonus in-game referencing this.
- Battle Couple: With Wiccan.
- The Big Guy: Plays this role on the New Avengers, thanks to his shapeshiting powers letting him provide the muscle.
- Child of Two Worlds: He's the child of Kree and Skrull bloodlines.
- Distressed Dude: Like the rest of the New Avengers, Hulkling needs to be rescued from his possession before he'll join the team.
- Straight Gay: He has to explain that Billy is his boyfriend to the Avengers, who didn't seem to realize otherwise.
- Winged Humanoid: Thanks to his shapeshifting, Billy can sprout a pair of wings whenever he needs them.
- Charles Atlas Superpower: Iron Fist's chi channeling powers may give him superhuman strength, but even without it, his mastery of kung-fu and training let him harder than any normal man should be able to.
- Chest Insignia: He has a tattoo of the Undying Dragon, Shou-Lao, burned into his chest.
- Enhanced Punch: Iron Fist's core powers are built around enhancing his considerable martial art skills with his chi. On a meta level, Iron Fist is recommended for World Boss raid modes specifically because his 5* skill, an enhanced punch that deals ludicrous damage, can be paired with Quake and Warwolf to provide buffs to his damage long enough to melt the boss with single punches.
- Impossibly-Low Neckline: A rare male example, his default costume exposes a great deal of his neck and chest as it plunges all the way down to the waist.
- Legacy Character: Danny Rand isn't the first to wield the Iron Fist, and he won't be the last.
Iron Man (Mark 44)
- Awesome, but Impractical: The Hulkbuster is a really cool hero with great stats and a monster tank...but because he was given away as a log-in bonus, his Biometrics can't be obtained normally. They have to be unlocked one at a time from Shifters, or lucked into when buying biometrics. Slightly remedied by the Guardians of the Galaxy patch, which specifically makes Hulkbuster bios a possible reward for Villain Siege, but even then, it's a long grind to get him to a rank high enough that his high base stats and growth keep him competitive with other members of the roster.
- As of the All-New, All-Different patch; this is no longer the case- he's now one of the best characters in the game, with a uniform that boosts his stats, a new 6* skill that does outrageous damage and turns most characters into paste, speedy cooldowns on skills to keep him constantly attacking, and turning him into one of the core members of the top tier "meme team" alongside Silk and Loki. Of course, this update also removed the suit from the Villain Siege store, meaning Hulkbuster bios are rare, outside of daily selectors and ones purchased with crystals.
- Benevolent A.I.: The Hulkbuster Dimensional Shifter is actually not Stark piloting the suit, but the Veronica AI remote controlling it.
- Godzilla Threshold: The Mark 44 was designed from the ground up specifically to take down a rampaging Hulk, should the need arise.
- Meta Mecha: Being based on the MCU version of the suit, the Mark 44 is actually a suit on top of the standard suit, with pieces deployed at will via Satellite.
- Mighty Glacier: Iron Man is the speedy, ranged character that you start off the game using to kite and do hit and run attacks. Hulkbuster Iron Man, conversely, is one of the slowest characters in the game, who is almost entirely built around slow, hard hitting physical attacks to tank instead of energy kiting.
- Power Palms: Unlike the regular Iron Man, Hulkbuster's Power Palms can't be used for fully ranged attacks, but they do give him the "Repuslo
- Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: The three star rank skill, "Jet-Assisted Takedown", is a rapid flurry of motorized punches.
- Action Mom: Her team bonuses reveal that her daughter, Danielle, is already born in this universe, with She-Hulk and Groot serving as Nannies and Iron Fist as the godfather.
- Adaptational Badass: Unusual for a comic book character, Jessica's powers are actually turned up for her appearance in the game. In the MCU, she's strong- but still below Luke Cage levels of strong, and in the comics, she's stronger than that, but still on the low end of super strength. Here, her ground-pounds can create Hulk-style shockwaves, and she can punch so hard that the air blasts enemies away from a distance.
- Played with, as while her abilities might be enhanced slightly, her stats are quite weak and she's considered to be a low-tier character.
- Adaptation Dye-Job: Being based on the MCU look by default, Jessica's previously brunette hair is straight black here.
- Alliterative Name: In true Marvel fashion.
- Awesome, but Impractical: Not Jessica herself, as she's an extremely effective tank, but her Passive ability is this. On one hand, it's a really cool reference to her past history with other characters, and it makes it her totally immune to one of the in-game damage types at all times once she hits 4 stars... unfortunately, that damage type is Mental, and the only character to really take advantage of Mental abilities at her release is MODOK, who is far from a frequent PVP choice, and never fought in the more challenging later game levels.
- Later subverted, as with the introduction of more characters with mind damage including Scarlet Witch, her passive is now one of her more unique aspects allowing her to block a good deal of damage from those characters. However, her stats and abilities don't give much to back this up meaning she will still die to just about anything that isn't mental damage which means even a character like Supergiant who only has one ability that doesn't do mental damage will usually still be able to beat her.
- Battle Couple: She gets team bonuses increasing her health and attack damage when she's paired with Luke Cage.
- Composite Character: Jessica looks like her MCU self and has a stronger version of her flightless powerset, but she graduated Midtown High with Peter Parker, married Luke Cage, and has given birth to their daughter, all like her traditional comics self.
- Launcher Move: This is how Jones' 3 star skill opens- with a huge uppercut that sends a target into the air to be followed up on.
- Made of Iron: She makes for an excellent tank, and can absorb a lot of punishment without backing down.
- Meteor Move: Jessica's 3 star skill, Smack Down, ends with one of these, kicking down into the ground and dealing some area of effect damage to anyone too close to the target as well.
- Not Wearing Tights: Her default look is based on the MCU version of the character, which means no costume and no codename- just a leather jacket, a pair of jeans and a side of snark.
- Private Detective: Jessica became one when she initially quit the superhero thing. One of her team bonuses, Outing Oscorp with Spider-Man and Green Goblin, references this.
- Psychic Block Defense: Jessica's passive ability is Telepathic Resistance- making her immune to all Mental Damage, as a result of her time with the Purple Man building up a resistance to it.
- Punched Across the Room: Some of Jessica's skills- especially her six star ability, send enemies absolutely flying all over the arena as she overpowers them and knocks them backwards.
- Always Someone Better: Black Panther's equal in terms of intelligence, strength and drive; even without the special herbs and blessings of the Panther God.

- Names to Run Away from Really Fast: ErikKillmonger.
- Skeletons in the Coat Closet: His default costume is adorned with skulls on his belt, gauntlets and necklaces.
- Acrofatic: Despite his wide, large size, Kingpin isn't actually fat; he's all muscle, leading to his deceptive appearance shocking people when he leaps across the battlefield or hits with enough strength to rival superpowered foes.
- Adipose Rex: The massive Kingpin of Crime across all of New York City, and more recently, the grandmaster of The Hand as well.
- Badass Normal: He has no superpowers, but his sheer muscle mass and intense training, as well as genius mind and careful planning, allow him to match superpowered foes like Spider-Man, Daredevil and the Avengers.
- Bald of Evil: Naturally.
- Big Bad: He's this to Daredevil, often being behind the villains and struggles in Matt's life. He's also one of the major villains in Future Fight's story, trying to utilize his control over The Hand and his vast criminal enterprises to take advantage of the Incursions.
- Big Bad Wannabe: Ultimately, he's actually this in the context of Future Fight's story. He's handily defeated by the player and their team, and he's no more privy to what's happening than anyone else- ultimately getting played and manipulated by MODOK like all the rest.
- Alliterative Name: Curt Connors
- Anti-Villain: Connors is a kind man, and an ally of Spider-Man's. Unfortunately, the Lizard personality is just a savage animal acting on instincts and Connors struggles to suppress it.
- Badass Labcoat: He wears the tatters of his former labcoat.
- Evil Cripple: Played with; Connors is missing one of his arms, but is still a good person. The Lizard was created from his attempts to regrow his arm, and is a monster.
- "I Know You're in There Somewhere" Fight: The Avengers want to try this tactic, but Spider-Man mentions from experience that it's only an option if they had Connors' wife and son with them, and they don't have the time to track them down.
- Lighter and Softer: The Sinister Six questline implies that The Lizard has trapped Connors personality within just like his modern incarnation, but that his wife and son are still alive.
- That Man Is Dead: Claims that Curt Connors is dead and only the Lizard remains when Spider-Man and the Avengers confront him.
- Red Herring: He and the rest of the Sinister Six trick Spider-Man into believing he has Black Cat captive; only to reveal that he was just a distraction after they beat him

- Badass Beard: He grows one out in his All-New, All-Different costume.
- Bald, Black Leader Guy: Luke has lead the New Avengers, The Mighty Avengers and the Thunderbolts.
- Bash Brothers: With Iron Fist.
- Civvie Spandex: Luke doesn't really wear a costume anymore, just normal street clothes that happen to use the yellow colors to evoke one.
- Happily Married: He's married to Jessica Jones.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: Luke is so close to Iron Fist, that he named his daughter after him.
- Scary Black Man: He leans into the stereotypes somewhat.
- Alternate Company Equivalent: In many ways, Moon Knight is a deconstruction and darker foil to Batman.
- Anti-Hero: He ultimately fights for good, but he's plagued by visions and voices (which may or may not be real, depending on the writer) of Khonshu, demanding that he act more like a Blood Knight. The ultimate result is a hero who flip flops between a no-kill rule and a man that carves the faces off of his enemies or leaves crescent moon brands in their flesh to scar them.
- Crime Fighting With Cash: He may not have powers (probably), but he does have a massive arsenal of gadgets, weapons and tools built from his large sums of money- crescent darts and daggers, his bo staff, and even a moon-shaped helicopter.
- Death by Origin Story: Spector's own death is what kickstarted his origin.

- Old Soldier: Especially in his General Ross persona.
- Playing with Fire: While his Green counterpart gets stronger when he gets angry, Red Hulk gets hotter, eventually building up to flaming attacks, which give many of his attacks in the game burn properties.
- Unexpected Character: While Red Hulk himself appearing in the game isn't that strange, him appearing in the same update in the Ant-Man update alongside Scott Lang, Hank Pym, Wasp and Yellowjacket certainly wasn't expected.
- Bond Villain Stupidity: Rhino underestimates Black Cat, and talks about the Sinister Six's true motives enough that she is able to piece together their plot in time.
- The Brute: He serves this role in the Sinister Six; he's extremely strong and durable, and dumber than a brick.
- Bullfight Boss: Rhino's favorite form of attacking is to charge wildly, as per tradition.
- Follow the Chaos: This is how the Avengers track him down during the Sinister Six questline- following the trail of destruction his warpath through New York has left.

- Bad Ass Family: She's the cousin of The Hulk, who has been married to the Red She-Hulk, who is the daughter of General Thunderbolt Ross, the Red Hulk. The family that smashes together, stays together, it seems.
- Beware the Nice Ones: She's much, much more approachable and kind than her cousin, but when someone threatens the people she cares about or truly crosses her, her rage is no less terrifying.
- Bunny-Ears Lawyer: She balances a career as an actual Lawyer with serious bunny ear tendencies with her role as an active member of both The Avengers and A-Force.
- Genius Bruiser: Hits like a tank, and is an incredibly gifted Lawyer to boot.
- Omnidisciplinary Lawyer: Technically, she's trained in Superhero Law, but by definition, that requires an omnidsiciplinary approach.
- Women Are Wiser: Explicitly noted as being more calm and in-control of her powers than The Hulk.
- Aliens Speaking English: Sif speaks fluent English without aide, though she occasionally misunderstands some intentions and meanings.
- Blood Knight: Lady Sif mocks the concept of using non-lethal force against targets, doesn't mind the idea of destroying an entire Helicarrier in her wake, and finds the potential of dying irrelevant if it means she can destroy her target.
- Cutting the Knot: When it's mentioned that the SHIELD agents need to watch their fire when pursuing Raina into the Engine Room of the Helicarrier, as a stray shot could easily blow up the whole ship. Sif firmly attempts to convince Coulson that the best option is to simply blow up the Helicarrier instead, ensuring that Riana would die.
- Glory Seeker: She is only interested in victory, no matter the cost to get there.
- Guest-Star Party Member: She serves as one for the player in several missions during the Agents of SHIELD story chapters, and from a larger narrative level, she serves as one for Coulson's team during the events of the story.

- Superhero Packing Heat: Superhero Werewolf Packing Heat, more like; Warwolf utilizes sidearms and miniguns in addition to his more feral skills.

- Hunter of His Own Kind: He tracks down Inhumans that he feels are unworthy of the Terrigenesis and murders them.
- Judge, Jury, and Executioner: The only thing determining the "worth" of an Inhuman in his eyes is Lash's own opinion of them.
- Obviously Evil: He's a giant, muscle-bound serial killer that looks like a demon.
- The Social Darwinist: Part of how Lash determines the value of an Inhuman is their ability to defend themselves. The weak, as he sees it, don't deserve to live.

Malekith the Accursed
- Braids of Action: He styles his hair this way in his default appearance, based on his look in Thor: The Dark World.
- Bribing Your Way to Victory: Malekith was one of the few "Premium Characters" in the roster at launch; he can't be farmed from story missions or dimension rifts, and his bios could only be dropped at random from in-app purchase random boxes. As the game has evolved, however, he's become much more easy to earn- being one of the characters that can appear as an Enemy Dimension Shifter in story missions, and being available in the daily biometric selectors.
- Dark Is Evil: He's a Dark Elf and is as cruel as he is dangerous.
- Evil Albino: His pale visage calls this to mind.
- Evil Sorcerer: Presumably; all of his skills appear to be based on the use of The Aether, one of the Infinity Stones from the movie universe, but the Black Order update reveals that the Future Fight universe uses the same Infinity Gems as the comics, indicating that the source of Malekith's powers are more in-line with his comics incarnation, and just visually styled after the movie. Supporting this, he has a team-up bonus for allying with Nico and Loki called "Masters of Magic".
- Evil Overlord: He rules over the Dark Elves of Svartlheim.
- Good Scars, Evil Scars: Like his film counterpart, Malekith has horrible scarring across half his face, courtesy of a blast of lightning from Thor's hammer.

- Red Baron: His title, The Accursed.
- Ascended Extra: Even by the standards of comics MODOK; in Future Fight is one of the most recurring characters in the game, appearing in both the story and the Special Missions, and by the end of the game effectively becomes Netmarble's fill-in for Doctor Doom in the plot's general adaptation of Secret Wars, becoming the Big Bad and actually coming out ahead of the heroes.
- The Bad Guy Wins: MODOK succeeds in tricking the heroes of the colliding worlds into killing each other, while he keeps the player and all the heroes trapped in an unending time loop, forcing them to kill, die and be reborn unending while he works at rebuilding the multiverse in his own image.
- Big Bad: MODOK is the Big Bad of A.I.M., and like the other villainous Big Bad characters, attempts to work together. He's also the true Big Bad of the entire game- he was the one who sent Jocasta to the player, and encouraged the heroes distract themselves with the incursions and killing each other, while he goes about his plans unhindered...
- Butt-Monkey: Initially, MODOK gets about as much respect from the rest of the cast as he traditionally does in most of his other multimedia appearances. Which ultimately bites them all in the ass, as his role is far more serious than one only familiar with said appearances might expect.
- Evil Cripple: MODOK is confined to his hovering chair at all times, and is totally helpless without it and his headband.
- Hidden Agenda Villain: He seems to be playing up A.I.M.'s For Science! agenda to hammy levels, to the point of his actual agenda not being clear. It effectively obfuscates his actual plan: to keep the heroes of the multiverse locked into a recursive time loop to remake the multiverse in his image.
- Walking Spoiler: Nearly all the non-gameplay related tropes on this entry are spoiler-tagged for a reason.
- Xanatos Speed Chess: MODOK is a master planner, and is engaged in a plot to take best advantage of the incursions, competing with Ultron, Red Skull, The Player and SHIELD, and Loki. He wins.

- Composite Character: This version of Red Skull is largely based on the original comics version, but he leads HYDRA and his default costume is based on his MCU appearance.

- Demolitions Expert: He uses his explosive expertise in his 3* skill, Trip Mines.

- Doppelgänger Attack: Her Now You See Me... 5* skill; it summons a clone illusion of her starting with 50% of her stats, which only gets higher and higher as you upgrade the ability.
- Elegant Gothic Lolita: Nico's dressing as gothic as ever, even as a member of A-Force.
- Goth Girls Know Magic: Well, she's a goth girl, and a wizard.
- Hot Wings: In the All-New, All-Different uniform, Nico's 3* power is replaced with Avian Fury, an ability that summons a pack of flaming, explosive birds that crash into enemies to deal high damage.
- Kid with the Leash: Serves this role to Singularity, keeping her grounded and part of the team.
- Lady of Black Magic: Naturally.
- Playing with Fire: Her All-New, All-Different uniform changes several of her attacks to deal burn damage, and changes the appearance and animations to cause her to shoot fire instead.
- Power Floats: One of the first powers she unlocks, Float On, causes her to float forward before striking the ground, creating a magic pillar.
- Romantic Two-Girl Friendship: Her relationship with Singularity.
- Spread Shot: Her second power, Punish, fires several piercing magic blasts in a wide, shotgun spread that deal heavy damage to the enemy.
- Stocking Filler: Both Nico's costumes involve fishnet stockings.
- Twofer Token Minority: She's an Asian Woman and a female character who isn't a Speed Hero.
- Adaptation Distillation: While his teammates are largely fusions of their comic selves with the movie iterations, Star-Lord is almost entirely based on the MCU version, from his criminal past, to his personality, to using The Orb and dancing in his moveset.
- Ace Pilot: Star-Lord has a psychic connection to his sentient spaceship, The Milano, which grants him a significant advantage in terms of piloting ability. This link is represented by his two passives, which increase his dodge in the first, and his damage, crit rate and crit damage in the Tier 2.
- Badass Longcoat: He wears his Ravager coat from the MCU in his default appearance.
- Butt-Monkey: Star-Lord has a rough go of it in this game; he's kidnapped by MODOK, he's one of the only characters in the Guardians update that can't be farmed traditionally, his damage and skill set are substandard, his only alternate costume is based on the much reviled Bendis run that was so disliked it was ditched after only a few appearances, and even his Tier 2 upgrade failed to help him out.
- Captain Space, Defender of Earth!: The original Marvel Universe example.
- Cool Mask: His default costume.
- Dual Wielding: His Quad-Blasters.
- True Companions: With the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy.
- Arm Cannon: The basis of most of his moveset is his Sonic Cannon.
- Badass Normal: In-game Klaw is based entirely on MCU Klaue, and thus he has no powers- just tech and weapons.
- Drives Like Crazy: His ultimate skill, which involves drifting around and shooting like mad. During the second phase of his boss battle, he spends his entire time behind the wheel, trying to blow T'Challa up and run him over.
- Gatling Good: Klaue wields a giant minigun for one of his abilities.
- Artificial Human: He was created by Ultron based on the remnants of the original Human Torch.
- Badass Cape: His is one of the most notable in the game.
- Badass Family: He considers himself the "Grandson" of Hank Pym, having been built by Hank's own creation, and frequently teams up with Hank, Wasp and Ant-Man.
- Flying Brick: His powerset is fairly straight forward; super strength, durability, speed and flight, with laser beams and density manipulation thrown in for good measure.
- Good Counterpart: Towards Ultron.
- Intangible Man: He can manipulate his density to become more or less solid, at times having this effect. In one of his skills, Vision falls into the ground and dashes forward, uppercutting enemies through the ground.
- Only the Chosen May Wield: He's worthy of wielding Mjolnir, and gets a team-up bonus with Thor referencing it.
- American Robot: War Machine's Iron Patriot uniform from Iron Man 3.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Being Iron Man's sidekick, War Machine's a hero despite the gray and black palette for his default armor.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: Repulsor Shot fires one from a cannon on his left shoulder.
- Macross Missile Massacre: Does this for his 5-star skill, Minigun Barrage.
- More Dakka: His first skill, Suppressing Fire. Missile Strafe takes this Up to Eleven by having War Machine gun down his opponent, fire a laser beam and then finish them off by raining missiles down at them.
- Power Armor: Rhodey wears one just like Iron Man.
- Battle Couple: With Hank.
- Deadpan Snarker: She takes no time making fun of Tony, Steve and Natasha's shrunken state in the Ant-Man special missions.
- Flying Firepower: She can fly and fire bio-electric energy blasts.
- Size Shifter: She prefers to shrink and she's notably smaller than the rest of cast. She can also shrink down with her Target Rush attack.
- Winged Humanoid: Of the insect-wings variety.
Wasp (Nadia van Dyne)
- Applied Phlebotinum: Just like Scott and Janet, he utilizes Pym Particles to shrink.
- Clothes Make the Superman: Requires his Yellowjacket suit to access his powers.
- Composite Character: He's using the MCU character design and personality, but his backstory is seemingly closer to his classic comics self.
- Corrupt Corporate Executive: The CEO of Cross Technological Enterprises.
- Evil Counterpart: Toward Scott Lang.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: His attacks pretty much involve these.
- Genius Bruiser: Another one, as he's a Mad Scientist who fights with his own, upgraded suit.
- The Paralyzer: His Leadership ability allows him to paralyze enemies when he and his team attack them.
- Pest Controller: He doesn't use any insects in his actual moveset, but he commands an army of Mantises and other bugs to attack Scott, Janet and the team when they're shrunk down inside of Vision in the Ant-Man missions.
- Pint-Size Powerhouse
- Size Shifter: He can shrink like Ant-Man using the Yellowjacket suit with his Now You See Me and Flying Barrage attacks.
Ant Man (Scott Lang)
- Applied Phlebotinum: He uses Pym Particles to change size, shrink his enemies, and utilize a tank.
- Clothes Make the Superman: Unlike his partners, Giant Man and Wasp, Scott actually needs his suit to change his size.
- Goomba Stomp: One of Ant-Man's core abilities has him shrink the enemy down and then jump up and down on them multiple times.
- Legacy Character: He's the second man to wear the Ant-Man suit, after Hank Pym.
- Magikarp Power: Of a sorts; Ant-Man isn't a terrible Speed type character, but he was widely considered the weakest link in the otherwise overpowered Team Pym set-up, and multiple characters easily did everything he could but better, leaving him outclassed by Silk and the like. Then the World Boss update hit, and suddenly his ridiculously long 5* skill invincibility frames and his Tier 2 update in the Civil War update made a fully geared, maxed-out Ant-Man one of the most useful picks for the endgame content available.
- Pint-Size Powerhouse: When he shrinks, he still hits just as hard.
- Size Shifter: Originally he only shrank down. He gained Giant-Man esque growing during the Civil War.
- Absolute Cleavage: Felicia shows 'em off with her default and Claws uniform.
- Absurdly Sharp Claws: Black Cat's primary combat tool is her claws, which she uses in several attacks, and even gets a team bonus with Silk and Black Panther called "Clawing Away" recognizing them.
- Animal-Themed Superbeing: Her bad luck powers compliment her Black Cat motif.
- Dark Action Girl: Classified as a Super Villain by the game.
- Dating Catwoman: Alluded to with her Rooftop Romance team-up bonus with Spider-Man.
- Impossibly-Low Neckline: While wearing the Claws costume.
- Whip It Good: Black Cat has a whip as part of her arsenal and uses it for her Cat Scratch ability.
- Arm Cannon: Her Widow's Bite bracelets, which fire blasts of electricity.
- Dual Wielding: Natasha dual wields pistols and Widow's Bite gauntlets.
- Legacy Character: Black Widow's Secret Wars: 2099 costume replaces Natasha Romanoff with Tania, who is the Black Widow of Alchemax's Avengers.
- Shock and Awe: Black Widow has two abilities classified under the Lightning category: Widow's Bite and Coup de Grace. At Tier 2, she gains a passive that increases her Lighting damage by 25%.
- Spy Catsuit: In her default, Age of Ultron, and 2099 uniforms. Averted by her Civil War uniform, however.
- Status Buff: Her 3* skill, Infiltrator, allows her to temporarily increase her Dodge stat.
- Arch-Enemy: Bullseye and Kingpin.
- Blind Weaponmaster: Thanks to his enhanced senses, Daredevil is a master with his Billy Clubs.
- Dark Is Not Evil: Especially emphasized by his Devil of Hell's Kitchen costume, which drains a lot of the colors from the default DD uniform. Regardless, we're still talking about a man who dresses up like a devil to punch people out in the dark.
- Disability Superpower: Daredevil lost his sight as a child, but in an act with enhanced every other sense to superhuman levels.
- Heterosexual Life-Partners: With Spider-Man and to a lesser extent with Iron Fist. There are multiple team up bonuses for pairing him with them.
- Identity Impersonator: Iron Fist temporarily took up the mantle of Daredevil while Matt was in prison.
- The Rival: The Punisher.
- Amulet of Concentrated Awesome: The Bloodstone itself, an ancestral gem from which she can fire off her 6* skill, Red Flame.
- Badass Longcoat: She wears one in both her modern and Secret Wars uniforms.
- Dual Wielding: Elsa dual wields Shotguns and pistols by default. The Secret Wars uniform swaps out the pistols for different shotguns, letting her quad-wield.
- Fiery Red Head: As usual.
- Guns Akimbo: She's never using just one gun.
- Gun Fu: Most of the time she's using her skills, Elsa is leaping through the air, performing crazy flips and looking like a character performing a Devil May Cry combo while blasting away with her shotguns.
- The Hunter: Elsa is the most recent in a long line of monster slayers; she was trained through a Hilariously Abusive Childhood to take on Vampires, Zombies, Werewolves and all manner of supernatural threats.
Hawkeye (Kate Bishop)
Kraven the Hunter
- Death from Above: Sharon's 5 and 6 star skills deliver an area-of-effect airstrike that hits multiple times.
- Adaptation Personality Change: Like the MCU, her bio presents her as a technological-focused inventor. Despite this, her non-uniformed appearance is much more in line with her mysticism and traditional Wakandan comics self.
- Animal Motifs: She shares her brother's association with Panthers, but her default moveset also associates her with crows- inspired by her time in Djalia.
- Mystical White Hair
- Animal-Themed Superbeing: Even moreso than the other Spiders- she's one of the three Spider Totem avatars, like Kaine and Benjy Parker.
- Bat Family Crossover: Encouraged; the "Spider-Verse" teams encourage the player to mix and match her in a group with Spider-Man, Superior Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, and Miles Morales.
- Bonding Over Missing Parents: In-game, she seems to have developed a friendship with Quake, which is represented by the "Lost Parents" team bonus she gains when paired with her.
- The Chosen Many: As one of the Spider totem avatars, she's one of several Spiders vital to the Web of Life. She's The Bride. Peter used to be The Other, until Kaine took over, and Mayday's little brother is The Scion. Referencing this hierarchy, pairing Silk with Peter and Superior Spider-Man grants "The Bride" team bonus.
- Distaff Counterpart: To Spider-Man, more so than any other Spider-Woman or Spider-Girl.
- Fantastic Arousal: Her pheromones that drive her and Peter together, which grants the team bonus "Instinctive Attraction".
- Femme Fatalons: She can utilize razor sharp claws on her hands for her attacks. Pairing her with Black Cat and Black Panther offers the "Clawing Away" team bonus for it.
- Intrepid Reporter: Cindy is this, as a counterpart to Peter's photographer. They even both worked with Jameson. Pairing the two of them with Private Investigator Jessica Jones grants the team bonus "Journalists By Day".
- The Rival: With Black Cat. They've fought several times, both have been love interests for Peter, and you gain the "Just Business" team bonus for putting them both together. You also get the "Cat's Vengeance" bonus for adding Peter into the mix.
- All Drummers Are Animals: She's the drummer for her band, and has a team bonus called "Music is My Life" for being paired with Star-Lord.
- All Webbed Up: Her Spin n' Pin ability, her only attack not based on kicking, is a barrage of flips while shooting web balls which can web up to three enemies up for a brief moment.
- Animal-Themed Superbeing: Spiders, naturally.
- Bat Family Crossover: Encouraged; the "Spider-Verse" teams encourage the player to mix and match her in a group with Spider-Man, Superior Spider-Man, Miles Morales, and Silk.
- Everything's Better with Spinning: She makes heavy use of spinning in her animations- The Blender power is a twirling handstand kick that deals heavy damage to all enemies around her.
- For Want of a Nail: She comes from an alternate universe where she was bitten by the radioactive spider instead of Peter.
- Hero with Bad Publicity: Spider-Gwen is wanted by the police, including Frank Castle and Captain America. Including her on a team with Punisher and Cap gives her the "You're Under Arrest" team bonus.
- In the Hood: One of the defining characteristics of her default costume.
- Kick Chick: Gwen's attacks and powers emphasize kicking as her primary attack tool- her normal combos, Kick-Tock, What Goes Up, The Blender and One-Two Kick ultimate all make use of offensive kicks. In fact she only has one attack in her entire movelist that doesn't involve kicking: her webbing based attack.
- The Lost Lenore: Her universe's Peter is this for her, just as the main universe's Gwen Stacey is for Spider-Man. When you pair Peter and Gwen together, you get a "Tragic Love" Team Bonus for it.
- One Steve Limit: Played with- there aren't any other Spider-Women in the game yet, but instead of using her canonical Spider-Woman title, she uses the marketing-based Spider-Gwen, leaving the door open for Jessica Drew.
- Passing the Torch: When Janet van Dyne retired, she passed Gwen the Web-Shooters she uses now. Pairing her with the main universe's Wasp grants the "Benevolent Benefactor" team-up in reference to this.
- She-Fu: Gwen is constantly doing flips, spins, somersaults and twirls throughout her very intricate fighting style.
- Age Lift: His Marvel Cinematic Universe counterpart is used as optional costumes (Homemade, Stark Suit and Iron Spider-Man), thus the Spidey running around when wearing those is a younger one. Donning the black and whites (listed as "Renew Your Vows") makes him older.
- Bat Family Crossover: Encouraged; the "Spider-Verse" teams encourage the player to mix and match him in a group with Superior Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen, Miles Morales, and Silk.
- Three-Point Landing: Spider-Man's idle pose.
Spider-Man (Miguel O'Hara)
Spider-Man (Miles Morales)
- Affirmative Action Legacy: The page image for the trope; he became the new Spider-Man when his universe's Peter Parker died.
- All Webbed Up: Like all the Spiders, Miles has a webbing based attack- his first power, named Foe Flip, has him jump into the air and briefly web up three enemies.
- Animal-Themed Superbeing: Spiders, naturally.
- Bat Family Crossover: Encouraged; the "Spider-Verse" teams encourage the player to mix and match him in a group with Spider-Man, Superior Spider-Man, Spider-Gwen and Silk.
- Berserk Button: Venom, and Eddie Brock specifically. In his universe, Brock killed his mother, and while he seemingly stopped the Ultimate Venom for the last time, coming into the events of Future Fight sees him cross paths with several Eddie Brock Venoms. He even gets a team bonus, "No More!", for teaming up with him.
- Contrasting Sequel Main Character: Mechanically speaking, Miles' in-game attacks and powers are based primarily on his Venom Blast in order to contrast and differentiate him from Peter and the other Spiders.
- Child Prodigy: While easily overshadowed by the intelligence levels of other heroes in the Marvel Universe, Miles has a more realistic level of gifted intelligence, which is what earned his place into his new school.
- Invisibility: Not the focus of any of his attacks, but Miles invisibility is still utilized in his Back Biter to allow Miles to get behind his enemies to perform the Venom Blast.
- Kid Hero: The youngest playable character in the game- Miles was a Grade Schooler when he gained his powers.
- Legacy Character: His in-game bio even ends with the line "Can he lie up to the legacy of Spider-Man?"
- The Paralyzer: Miles' Venom Blast lets him do this to enemies. He utilizes it to zip between multiple enemies and leave them stunned during his Shock and Awe power.
- Passing the Torch: Miles uses web-shooters designed by Peter Parker, who's family posthumously passed them to Miles as a passing of the torch. Teaming Miles and Peter up grants the "Passing the Baton" bonus in reference to it.
- Shock and Awe: Miles' ultimate ability, Blasting Burst, has him jump into the air and deliver a massive area of effect electric shock, which deals continuous damage to anyone trapped in the radius. He also electrocutes enemies as part of his Shock and Awe, Back Bite and Wild Web powers.
- Super Team: Miles has been a part of two, both of which gives him a team bonus.
- "The Ultimates", the SHIELD super team he was a part of in his original home universe, gives him a bonus when he fights alongside Iron Man and Thor.
- "All-New, All-Different" references his time on the All-New, All-Different Avengers from when he became part of the main universe following Secret Wars, and gives hi bonuses when he works with Falcon and The Vision.
- When All You Have Is a Hammer...: Just like how every fight in the comics plays out the same way with a finishing Venom Blast, so too does almost every one of Miles abilities make use of the same ability. One of his team bonuses, "Venom Blasted", references this by pairing him with Venom and Green Goblin- two of the more egregious victims of the Blast in the comics.
- Chainmail Bikini: She's still wearing her extremely skimpy metal bra and panties from Spawn.
- The Exile: The Queen of Heven exiled Angela from her adoptive home.
- Fiery Redhead: She's quick to anger, as seen in her Shifter quotes, and as boisterous as any Asgardian.
- Long-Lost Relative: Thor and Loki's long lost sister.
- '90s Anti-Hero: Not surprisingly for a character who actually debuted in an Image book, she's a poster girl for this trope.
- Our Angels Are Different: While she herself isn't an Angel, she was raised by them. Angels in the Asgardian ten realms sense are quite different from the more traditional angels seen in Ghost Rider and other Judeo-Christian based works.
- Princess: As the daughter of Odin.
- Stripperiffic: She's wearing the skimpiest outfit in the game by a mile.
- Walking the Earth: Angela has dedicated herself to exploring the other nine realms now that she's been kicked from Heven, and to explore the Galaxy.
- World's Best Warrior: An Asgardian raised by warrior Angels to be among their strongest, fiercest warriors? Angela stands out, even among the rest of the roster.
- Dual Wielding: Uses a giant axe alongside an even bigger mace.
- Nonindicative Name: Despite his name, he's actually the largest member of the Black Order.
- Spin Attack: His 5* skill, Wind Blade, involves a spinning in a brief circle while swinging his weapons, hitting enemies all around him for massive damage.
- Villain Protagonist: As a member of the Cull Obsidian, Thanos' Black Order, he wants to help his master spread death and destruction across the universe.
- The Worf Effect: Despite being billed as the one member of the Cull Obsidian with the physical strength and presence that could rival even his master's, Black Dwarf's track record has been pretty horrible: he was beaten one-on-one by Black Panther, he fought Badass Normal Black Widow and failed to deal any significant damage, and he was ultimately killed when Ronan crushed his head under his hammer. All three moments are referenced in-game as team bonuses between Black Dwarf and the three characters.
- Super Mode: Radiant Form is effectively this for Captain Marvel. While this skill is active, her attack, defense and speed is buffed up and she gains skill cooldown on her abilities for 20 (23 with the Ms. Marvel uniform) seconds.
- Amazon Chaser: Seemingly, considering who his wife is.
- Back from the Dead: As long as his weapon remains intact, he can't truly die and will resurrect from it. He must be defeated three separate times during his World Boss raid fight, and when unlocked as a playable character, his 4* passive insures that he will revive with 100% health after he dies once.
- Blade on a Stick: His weapon of choice; he's even named for it.
- Teleport Spam: He teleports during multiple skills, including his 6* power.
- Ugly Guy, Hot Wife: Corvus looks like a goblin-faced monster; his wife is a blue-skinned Statuesque Stunner
- Unholy Matrimony: Happily married to fellow Black Order member, Proxima Midnight.
- Villain Protagonist: As a member of the Cull Obsidian, Thanos' Black Order, he wants to help his master spread death and destruction across the universe.
- Would Hurt a Child: Or force others to harm a child, anyway. Thanos sends him to various worlds to collect tributes; the mass execution of children as they hunt the galaxy for Thanos' own son.
- Composite Character/Fusion Dance: A combination of Black Panther and Ghost Rider from Infinity Warps.
- Cool Bike: Ghost Rider does ride one, but aside from his Highway to Hell ability, he doesn't really use it that much.
- Dark Is Not Evil: He's a good guy, even if he does have a flaming skull head and a bike which has burning wheels.
- Playing with Fire: Most of Ghost Rider's abilities except for Highway to Hell are classified under the Fire category.
- You Will Not Evade Me: Penance Stare drags enemies into melee range a la Scorpion from Mortal Kombat so Ghost Rider can spray them with fire.
Ghost Rider (Robbie Reyes)
- An Ice Person: Two of his abilities are classified under the Cold category.
- Me's a Crowd: Loki can create copies of himself using his Mind Games skill which is unlocked at 6 stars.
Nova (Sam Alexander)
- Dark Action Girl: So dark, in fact, that she impressed Thanos enough to be one of the primary members of his Black Order.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: Or Blue Skinned, rather.
- Homing Projectile: One of the most frustrating aspects of her World Boss raid is the sheer number of these she puts on screen at once. Getting tagged by the large homing spear will stunlock you in place while you find your health getting shredded by countless smaller strikes all at once. She needed a major balance patch just to fix this because on quite a few devices, the projectiles were impossible to actually dodge.
- Statuesque Stunner: She's several heads taller than her husband.
- Unholy Matrimony: Happily married to fellow Black Order member, Corvus Glaive.
- Villain Protagonist: As a member of the Cull Obsidian, Thanos' Black Order, she wants to help her master spread death and destruction across the universe.
Quasar (Avril Kincaid)
Ronan the Accuser
- Amazon Brigade: A-Force, the team she's a part of alongside She-Hulk and Nico.
- Came from the Sky: Her official bio claims that she "fell from the sky in a bright flash of light" to the Future Fight universe.
- Celestial Body: As a living pocket universe, her body is literal space.
- Does Not Like Men: Her passive ability, Cosmic Pull, is a defense mechanism designed to make her immune to guard crush, but only when her enemy is a male character.
- Genius Loci: A pocket universe that somehow gained sentience.
- Humans Are Special: Ultimately believes this; she took the form of a human female because she wanted to understand the human race better.
- No Name Given: Her current real name is listed as "Unrevealed". As a result, she's Only Known by Their Nickname
- Perpetual Smiler: Like in the comics, Singularity never stops smiling, even in the middle of a fight.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: While the Avengers are confronting Proxima, Black Dwarf and Corvus and getting the first set of gems, she overtakes the Inhuman city of Orollan and takes control of Black Bolt. She summons him for her 5* skill, and his constant attacks provide half the stage hazards in her World Boss raid fight.
- Death Seeker: Like all members of the Black Order, Supergiant welcomes the death her master's goals will bring her.
- Dispel Magic: When she's on point, her Leadership ability allows for a high chance of any debuff triggered by enemies getting automatically removed.
- Divided We Fall: Supergiant's preferred method for dealing with her enemies is to use her mind controlling powers to set them on each other and pick themselves off. The strategy backfires when she tries to do the same to the Avengers, and finds that she can't manipulate Iron Man due to the electronic interference generated by his helmet.
- Doppelgänger Attack: Her 6* skill, Giant Illusions, summons three clone illusions that fire massive orbs of energy across the screen.
- Enemy Mine: During the Black Order's siege of Earth, her forces were pushed back by Red Hulk. The two gain a team-up bonus if paired together which boosts their attack and max HP.
- Evil Genius: Her role in the Cull Obsidian.
- Green-Skinned Space Babe: Blue skinned, like Proxima.
- Kamehame Hadoken: In one of her starting skills, Energy Strike, Supergiant fires two energy blasts from her hands, then one more, wider blast from her palm.
- Kill Sat: One of her first skill, Mental Trap, rains down several Kill Sat-esque pillars of light to strike her foes.
- Light Is Not Good: Her costume is primarily white and her powers generate glowing blue and white light energy, but she is a genocidal mass-murderer and devotee of Thanos.
- Mind Rape: Her entire powerset is based around attack and dominating people's minds and bending them to her will. She's even described as a "Mental Parasite". In her World Boss raid fight, she has boosted her powers with the Mind Gem.
- Nonindicative Name: Discussed; Black Widow is corrected for assuming she'd be huge because of her name when Jocasta reminds him that she's actually named for the stellar phenomenon.
- Standard Status Effects: Her passive skill, Dark Silence, makes all of her abilities occasionally trigger silence effects, keeping enemies from using any skills themselves briefly.
- Status Buff: Battle Mentality, her 3* skill, grants her a temporary increase to Mind Damage and Dodge.
- Villain Protagonist: As a member of the Cull Obsidian, Thanos' Black Order, she wants to help her master spread death and destruction across the universe.
- Abusive Parents: His treatment of his children, such as Gamora and Nebula, is... questionable at best.
- Amazing Technicolor Population: His purple skin is an anomaly even among his fellow Eternals.
- Archnemesis Dad: He serves as this to Gamora, who frequently clashes with his forces as a member of the Guardians of the Galaxy, but also to Nebula, who is one of the allies of the Player and thus sides against him during the World Boss raid.
- Artifact of Doom: He assembles and wields the Infinity Gauntlet.
- Big Bad: One of the biggest in the Marvel Universe, and the Big Bad of the World Boss raid storyline specifically.
- Bring Him to Me: He captures Captain America, knowing that Steve is both the heart and the tactical leadership of the team, forcing the team to come to him with all the Infinity Gems they were able to keep the Cull Obsidian from claiming.
- Death Seeker: He wants to die, but in a way that will lives up to his obsession with Death as a concept and only after causing as much death as possible in tribute to his love with the abstract.
- The Dreaded: He's The Dreaded to the entire known universe.
- Failure Is the Only Option: His nihilism and love of Death can't end in any way that achieves the goals Thanos seeks, which only further drives his obsession.
- Genius Bruiser: He's both one of the smartest villains the team has encountered, and by far the most physically powerful, even without any of the Infinity Gems.
- Omnicidal Maniac: Thanos wants to use the Infinity Gauntlet to bring mass death to the universe.
- Orcus on His Throne: Thanos spends most of the Infinity World Boss storyline in the background, allowing the Cull Obsidian to carry out his will across the galaxy.
- Red Baron: "The Mad Titan".
- Villain Protagonist: He wants to spread mass death and destruction across the universe, is the central villain of the World Boss raids, and is still a recruitable playable character.
Thor (Jane Foster)
- Action Heroine: Obviously.
- Affirmative Action Legacy: She's the female replacement for Thor.
- Amicable Exes: She and Thor are no longer dating, but both think very highly of the other.
- Distaff Counterpart: Thor: The Goddess of Thunder
- Ill Girl: She's suffering from a Cancer that's slowly killing her. Every time she lifts Mjolnir, it "purges" the drugs of her chemotherapy and is only reducing her time left even more.
- A.I. Is a Crapshoot: He's a rogue AI created by Hank Pym, AKA Giant-Man.
- Finger Firearms: While using the Ultron Mark 3 uniform, Ultron fires lasers from his fingers with his Chest Beam ability.
- Frickin' Laser Beams: Ultron's Chest Beam and Encephalo-Ray skills utilize this.
- Ground Punch: Does this for his Robotic Slam skill.
- Horned Humanoid: There are horn-like appendages on his head in his default, Prime and Mark 3 uniforms.
Dr. Jemma Simmons
- For Want of a Nail: This Simmons works for Stark Industries but is kidnapped but is quickly rescued and joins the team to stop the universe from collapsing. Then the SHIELD update reveals this is a different Simmons and the other Simmons we know works for SHIELD like her MCU version.
- Mission Control: Serves this along with Jocasta.
- Other Me Annoys Me: Averted. Simmons from the Future Fight timeline meets her SHIELD counterpart, her SHIELD counterpart quizzes her what her favorite color is and once Dr. Simmons answers, SHIELD Simmons admits she likes her counterpart.
- Big Good: She's the current Nova Prime, commander of the Nova Corps.
- Brainwashed and Crazy: After his initial defeat at the hands of the Guardians, Ronan enlists the help of MODOK to aid him in brainwashing the Nova Corps, including Rael, to help him capture and separate the Guardians. She manages to detain and brainwash Groot, and helps Nebula capture Gamora, before Star-Lord and the Avengers show up to knock her and the Corps to their senses.
- Cool Old Lady: When she isn't brainwashed, she is.
- Reasonable Authority Figure: While the Guardians are more renegade and willing to dip into criminal activity while adventuring through space, even they respect the level headed authority of the Nova Corps.
- Space Police: She's the head Space Cop in charge of the whole organization of them, in fact.
- Trademark Favorite Food: A prosciutto and buffalo mozzarella sandwich with a hint of pesto aioli. When the main timeline Simmons sends asks Lady Sif to deliver a message to the alternate timeline's SHIELD team, she has her bring one with her to prove to that timeline's Fitz that she's telling the truth.
- Bald of Evil: Being based on his Secret Wars self, this Taskmaster is a bald savage who enjoys hosting the Battleworld fights.
- Blood Sport: Taskmaster runs the Battleworld, a multiversal gladiator arena where competitors fight to death for the entertainment of all.
- In Name Only: This version of Taskmaster is from an alternate universe and has very little in common with the mainline universe Taskmaster, who has yet to appear in-game himself.
