Marvel's Avengers is a 2020 Action-Adventure game based off the Marvel Comics property of the same name made by Crystal Dynamics and published by Square Enix. It is an original story set in a distilled world, much in the way of Spider-Man (PS4).

A day of triumph for the Avengers instead becomes a tragedy when their new San Francisco headquarters is ground zero for a catastrophic disaster that results in mass casualties, including one of their own. Blamed for the events of "A-Day", the Avengers are outlawed and forced to disband, until five years later when a new worldwide threat forces the remaining heroes to assemble once more.

Numerous superheroes are slated to appear and be playable in the game, with more added post-launch free of charge. Each hero is made to feel unique, and will fill a particular niche.

Earth's Mightiest Tropes:

  • Downer Beginning: In the A-Day prologue, the Avengers end up screwing up big time. The Helicarrier is destroyed from its reactor overloading, Captain America is presumed to be killed in action, and a lot of innocent people die. The team is disbanded for five years as a result.
  • Freeze-Frame Bonus: Taskmaster appears in two shots of the trailer that are very easy to miss.

  • Mythology Gag: Many in the trailer.
    • The Helicarrier is mentioned to have a Terrigen reactor.
    • Twenty-five seconds to the runtime, a white gun turret on the Helicarrier has the serial number, ST-135, referencing Strange Tales #135, which featured SHIELD's first appearance.
    • The quote on Captain America's memorial plaque is taken from Amazing Spider-Man #537 (itself a paraphrase of Mark Twain).
    • Black Widow leaps onto a flying Taskmaster, not unlike a Chitauri glider.
    • Iron Man's entrance onstage mirrors his Stark Expo introduction in Iron Man 2.
    • While in space, Stark wears a suit resembling the Mark XXXIX from Iron Man 3.
    • Hank Pym's red jacket attire harkens back to his Avengers A.I. clothes.
    • Bruce's purple shirt and brown pants are based on Mark Ruffalo's Banner.
    • The robot that Natasha Fights heavily resembles a Super-Adaptoid from the comics.
    • During the Hulk's segment on the bridge, there are two different trucks for Pym Technologies (with a logo nearly identical to the movies) and Timely Transport (referencing Marvel's original name, Timely Comics).

"Well, what are we waiting for?!"
