LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is the latest next-gen game from the LEGO collection. Developed by TT Games and released by Warner Bros., this adventure comes with the entire Marvel universe for your entertainment. This installment has the same gameplay as other titles such as LEGO Star Wars, and Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes. However, the factor that makes a big difference is the huge number of characters you have at your disposal, from the Avengers to the X-Men, or even the Fantastic four—almost all characters of the immense Marvel Universe will appear.
About 150 characters are controllable by you through the adventure, each one with his or her own super-cool abilities. Depending on which one you control, you can use different super-powers. For example, if you are controlling Thor, you will be able to fly or throw your Mjölnir; or if you are Spiderman, you will have the possibility of web-slinging or using the spider sense. But super-powers are not all there is. If you are Hulk, you will have super strength, but if you are Bruce Banner, you will have quick access to computers and other technological devices.

The main antagonist of the storyline is Galactus—but don’t worry, he is not alone. Loki, Magneto, Doctor Octopus, Doctor Doom or Red Skull will also be there to challenge you. Of course, Stan Lee cannot hold himself back from appearing. After having appeared in all the Marvel movies, LEGO Marvel Super Heroes will be no exception. Stan Lee in Peril are missions in which Stan Lee is a playable character with borrowed super-powers, such as Wolverine's adamantium skeleton, the heat beam of the Human Torch, the optic blast of Cyclops, or even the Hulk-like version of Stan Lee and his ability to smash things! In addition, you will be free to explore the entire city of New York, with all the Marvel buildings included; for example, the Daily Bugle, the Buxter Building, the Stark Tower, the Oscorp Tower, and even the X-Mansion. But it’s not all New York, in some sections of the story you will have to visit Asgard or Latveria.
Enjoy the fantastic story
The story begins when Silver Surfer is knocked out by Doctor Doom after a chase involving Iron Man. The surfboard is broken into Cosmic Bricks, which are spread over the Earth. Those Cosmic Bricks are very powerful, and Doctor Doom wants them. Doom forges an alliance with Loki from Asgard to get the bricks, gathering other villains together in a quest to get them and build the Doom Ray of Doom.
Later, Sandman and Abomination are in the Grand Central Station looking for a Cosmic, and they are faced by Iron Man, Spider-Man and Hulk. Meanwhile, Nick Fury sends Captain America and Mr. Fantastic to search for the rest of the bricks, so they skydive off the S.H.I.E.L.D transport, the Helicarrier, to the Buxter Building, which is controlled by Doctor Octopus. However, the Green Goblin steals the brick and takes them to the Oscorp Tower. Spider-Man, with the assistance of the Hawkeye and the Black Widow, goes after him, but he manages to escape, joining Venom.
Then, Wolverine, Iron Man and the Hulk go to the Raft to battle Sabretooth, Abomination and the Leader, who is revealed as Magneto, and steal the Iron Man suit. Because of this, Tony Stark has to go to his tower to get a new suit, and he is accompanied by Captain America. Nevertheless, Aldrich Killian and the Mandarin are waiting for them in the Stark tower, and another fight begins. In the meantime, Captain America, Human Torch, Hawkeye and the Black Widow go to the HYDRA base to defeat Red Skull.
Later, Wolverine, Thor, Human Torch and Captain America assemble to use the Bifrost Bridge and go to Asgard, fighting Loki and his army of Frost Giants. Loki uses that Destroyer armor, but they manage to get the Tesseract, and Wolverine goes to the X-Mansion to give it to Professor X. But despite all this, the mansion is attacked by Juggernaut, and Cyclops, Jean Grey, Iceman, Storm and the Beast fight him.
At this point, we are not going to tell you the rest of the story, because we don’t want to spoil such a brilliant plot. We can just tell you that lots of heroes and villains are likely to appear, and that the Galactus menace is not a mere trifle. If you want to know what happens, you will have to play and finish the game.
