1.) Introduction
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hello and welcome to the general character FAQ for MARVEL NEMESIS! In this FAQ
I will list character moves, stats, strategies and more. I will also list other
general information about this game and such.

I decided to make this guide because there is only one FAQ for this game and I
think it deserves much more. I was blown away in terms of graphics, story, 
gameplay and overall this game is awesome. I do not know why this game gets 
such bad reviews when this game totally rules! People do need to know about the
games characters too, so that is another reason I created this FAQ.

If you like my work and have these games then you can go check some of my other
work for these games:

-Mega Man X5 FAQ/Walkthrough
-X-Men Legends II: Rise of Apocalypse Wolverine Character FAQ
-Mega Man X: Command Mission Sidequest FAQ

But lets forget all my giberish and such and lets move on to the MARVEL NEMESIS
RISE OF THE IMPERFECTS character FAQ!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
2.) Story
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Niles Van Roekel has created an army of aliens to invade New York city and 
dispatch the worlds most famous and strongest heroes. He also creates seven
mutants called the "Imperfects". These mutants are pure evil and want Marvel's
best heroes dead. But the Marvel superheroes and villains are not to fond of
this. Using turlin technology, Niles Van Roekel now has the Marvel characters
right where he wants them.

From the X-Men to Spider Man, and Magneto and Venom, to Iron Man and The Thing
Marvel has never had a better team of heroes and villains to win over New York
city!

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.) Characters
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Alright, here is the meat of the section. Here I will list all the characters 
and there stats, moves, strengths and weakness'. I will also rate them in total
usefulness and I will try my best to make this a great FAQ!

If have any suggestions or things you would like to add, please e-mail me at my
public e-mail address. If I like what you sent then I will add this and I will
add you in my credits section.

Now here is the Marvel Universe charcacter part of the FAQ.

Note: I suggest using your attacks and grapples while doing mobility moves to
find out even more moves and such. You'll never know what you'll find.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3.) The Thing
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Thing got his mutant abilities by being exposed by something in space. He
now has super strength, orange, rock hard skin, and a great sense of humor. The
Thing is available in the first mission.

him or her off.

Strengths
---------
He can pick up huge items and he has great strength and durability. He is a
good first round character and is fun to play with. His R1+[] move is very 
powerful.

Weakness'
---------
He is very slow and doesn't have many L1 capabilities. He is a good heavy melee
fighter but others like Brigade are better. His attacks are to slow and he is
very vulnerable when doing them.

Rating: 8/10

controls and is fast at initiating his attacks. 

*Thanks to Andrew Scherzinger 
for pointing this out, Wolverine heals life over time slowly, afterall, he does
have regenerative healing.

Weakness'
---------
He has no projectiles whatsoever and I hate that. He is a weakling compared to
tanks like Iron Man and Brigade. He has bad speed and he can't even pick up 
cars. Although he is my personal favorite, he isn't very good.

Rating: 8.5/10

isn't good in anything in the stats department.

Rating: 5/10

in length with his projectile attack and is overall the absolute worst 
character in the game by far!

Rating: 4.5/10

3e) Spider-Man
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ah, Spider-Man, our beloved hero and icon of Marvel. Well, he sure lives up to

such, and he can do this from a distance too! Pretty good stats.

particular.

Rating: 9/10

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rating: 9.5/10

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3g) Human Torch
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The Human Torch gained his powers like The Thing. He now has fire powers and

manipulation will most likely be used all the time to pick up the biggest of
items. He has a melee combo with excellent knockback and he is no doubt one of
the best characters in the game!

variety of moves and he has weak R1 melee attacks. That's it.

Rating: 9/10

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Rating: 10/10

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Marvel Universe characters. Enjoy!

hard to fight when she has energy to teleport.

picking up items. She has bad stats and when she can't teleport she is 
completely useless. She is in my opinion the worst character of the Imperfects.

Rating: 5.5/10

3n) Hazmat

4.) Tips and Hints
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is the section composed of my very own tips and hints. If you read these
you'll know what to try out and how you can make battles easier and such. If
you want to add anything to this section you can contact me and I will give you
full credit.

Use every character in the game. There is a roster of 18 cool powerful hero's
and enemies with unique fighting styles so make sure to try them all out.

Pick your character wisely. When going against a friend or computer in versus
mode, check out your opponents stats and moves. So if your friend chooses
Wolverine, you'll know that he can't do projectiles. So you'll know if you pick
a far-range character you'll have an advantage.

Use your energy wisely. When your in story mode or whatever make sure to store
your energy meter because you'll never know when an enemy comes and then you 
don't have a good attack.

Use the environment to your advantage. When there are cars and furniture you
got to pick these up and chuck them at the opponent. These objects and items
can take more damage.

Make use of your mobility moves. If your character is lacking in the speed 
department use your abilities of sprinting and such to get around quickly and
dodge those attacks.

Use your super power abilities when performing mobility moves! I have only 
listed normal moves and basics but when you use your powers during mobility
moves you'll learn and see amazing moves making each character have an arsenal
of attacks and powers. So try every character out as you'll find nearly dozens
of moves you've never heard or seen.

Pick your environments wisely. When your facing someone like Venom or SpiderMan
who can use there grapple to chuck you accross the room then I suggest you pick
places where there are no ringouts. And if you want a challenge then select Van
Roekels headquarters to get a real challenge. If your a beginner than I suggest
going to Avengers Mansion.

Well, that's it for the tips and hints section. And remember, send in more tips
and hints by e-mailing and I'll give you full credit. Remember, the more useful
information, the easier it is for the player.
