Lego Marvel Super Heroes

Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a 2013 action-adventure video game that is developed by TT Games and is published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, for the PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Microsoft Windows. The game features gameplay similar to other Lego titles, such as Lego Star Wars: The Complete Saga and Lego Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, alternating between various action-adventure sequences and puzzle-solving scenarios. The game was released under the title Lego Marvel Super Heroes: Universe in Peril for the Nintendo 3DS and PlayStation Vita handheld consoles.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes Plot

The game begins as the Silver Surfer is being pursued by S.H.I.E.L.D. and Iron Man, and is knocked out of the sky by Doctor Doom with his surfboard shattering into several 'Cosmic Bricks' that fall onto the Earth. With these blocks containing immense power, Doom forges an alliance with Loki and gets together a band of villains to make the powerful "Doom Ray of Doom". However, S.H.I.E.L.D. director Nick Fury calls upon the superheroes of the Marvel Universe to retrieve the bricks before they can be captured by Doom and his army.

Sandman and Abomination hold the entire Grand Central Station hostage in search of a Cosmic Brick, and it draws the attention of Iron Man and Hulk, who are later aided by Spider-Man in defeating Sandman and thus securing the Cosmic Brick. Fury then tasks Captain America and Mister Fantastic in finding more bricks, and the two head to the Baxter Building, which has fallen under the control of Doctor Octopus. Spider-Man returns to aid the two and they defeat Doctor Octopus, but the Cosmic Brick is stolen by the Green Goblin, who takes it with him to Oscorp Tower. Fury tasks Black Widow and Hawkeye with finding the Cosmic Brick while Spider-Man heads to Oscorp in pursuit of the Goblin, and the three are forced to face Venom inside Oscorp's underground lab while the Goblin once again escapes.

Wolverine works with Iron Man and the Hulk to secure the Raft, a maximum-security prison being raided by escaped prisoners, including Abomination and Sabretooth, both of whom the heroes have to take down. Magneto is revealed to be a mastermind behind the mass breakout and quickly makes his escape from the facility with the help of Mystique. After Magneto uses his powers to destroy Iron Man's armor, Stark goes with Captain America to Stark Tower to retrieve a new suit. Mandarin and Aldrich Killian attack the tower, and Stark intitiates "House Party Protocol", using his suits to defeat the two villains. Elsewhere, Black Widow, Hawkeye and Human Torch are sent by S.H.I.E.L.D. to the Empire State Building, where they infiltrate an underground HYDRA base and defeat the Red Skull with the help of Captain America.

Captain America and the Human Torch meet with Wolverine and Thor, who takes them to Asgard to find Loki. Upon arrival at the Bifrost Bridge, they find that Loki has allied himself with the Frost Giants, and they fight their way to Loki's domain, where Loki enhances his powers with the Tesseract. Loki unleashes the Destroyer armor on the heroes, but they disable the Destroyer while Loki escapes. While the others argue about what to do with the Tesseract, Wolverine uses the distraction to steal it and take it to Professor X at the X-Mansion. The mansion is attacked, and Jean Grey, Cyclops, Storm, Iceman and Beast work together to rescue trapped students and defeat Juggernaut.

At this time, Fury decides to initiate Operation: Latveria to go and stop Doctor Doom. Fury and the Fantastic Four travel to Castle Doom to find him, but instead battle the Green Goblin. Iron Man, Thor and Spider-Man head to a submarine where they defeat MODOK and his forces, being aided by Jean Grey in an attempt to find Doom underwater following the submarine's destruction. Magneto, on the other hand, uses his powers to take control of the Statue of Liberty, literally bringing it to life and using it to attack Mister Fantastic, Hulk and Wolverine. The heroes get trapped inside the statue and make it to its head, where they encounter Mastermind and defeat him. Believing Magneto to be on Asteroid M Island, Fury sends the Thing and Captain America there, and with the help of Storm, they defeat Rhino, and Mystique is revealed to be disguising as Magneto to lure the heroes to the island while the real Magneto continues with his plan. Meanwhile, on Asteroid M, Doom's lair in outer space, Doom and Loki's plan nears completion. Iron Man, Thor and Spider-Man arrive there and defeat Magneto, but Iron Man and Thor are incapacitated in the process. Spider-Man goes on with Storm, Thing and Captain America and they defeat Doctor Doom.

With only Loki left, he reveals his elaborate scheme to harness the power of Galactus to destroy both Earth and Asgard. Loki uses a device powered by the Cosmic Bricks to control Galactus as he attacks New York. With no other options left, Fury assembles the heroes and villains together in order to defeat Galactus on the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, splitting the combined forces into several teams. In the end, Galactus and Loki are warped into a portal into space. The heroes make an agreement with the villains to give them time to escape before they are pursued.

During the credits, Fury oversees the repair of the Statue of Liberty. Suddenly, the Guardians of the Galaxy arrive and Fury later sees Black Panther.

Lego Marvel Super Heroes Gameplay

Following the gameplay style of past Lego titles, players will be able to control approximately 150 characters from the Marvel Universe, each with their own unique abilities. For example, Spider-Man can swing on his webs and use his spider sense while the Hulk, who is larger than the standard minifigures, can throw large objects, as well as shrink down into Bruce Banner to access computers. It has been confirmed that Galactus will be the main antagonist in the game. According to game director, Arthur Parsons, and producer, Phil Ring, one of the main settings of Lego Marvel Super Heroes is a Lego version of New York City. In addition, a Lego version of Asgard was created.

The creative team has also incorporated Marvel Comics co-creator Stan Lee in the game. He is a part of missions called "Stan Lee in Peril", similar to "Citizen in Peril" missions from previous games. He is also a playable character, and has several of the other characters' abilities (such as Spider-Man's webbing, a combination of Human Torch's heat beam and Cyclops's optic blast, Mr. Fantastic's ability to grapple, an adamantium skeleton when all health is depleted, and the ability to transform into a Hulk-like version of Lee).

Players can also explore the Marvel version of New York City by entering buildings. Every building will have their own storyline when walked into and will be narrated by Deadpool.
