    4. Characters
    Real name: Logan
    Height: 5'3
    Weight: 195 Lbs.
    Fast healing, metal skeleton and razor sharp claws
    This is my favorite character in the game and my favorite
    x-man. I don't know why he can't heal in this game but, I
    enjoy playing as him. He has fast attacks and cuts the enemies
    to shreds.
    Real Name: Ororo Munroe
    Height: 5'11
    Weight: 127 Lbs.
    Control over weather
    I can't say that I am a big fan of Storm but, she is Ok in
    this game. Her regular attacks are strong and she is not
    so useless.
    Real name: Scott Summers
    Height: 6'3
    Weight: 185 Lbs.
    Energy beams
    My mother's favorite X-man. He is the leader of the X-men
    so this means he is important. His energy beams are useful
    if you are in a crowded place.
    Real name: Unrevealed
    Height: 5'8
    Weight: 120 Lbs.
    Super strength, absorbs mutant powers
    Rogue is a decent character and is a good fighter. I
    might say that she is one of my favorite female x-man
    (or x-girl).
    ======================|Section C: Boss FAQ             |======================
    5. Boss walkthrough
    From here my boss walkthrough begins. I will explain everything I can and 
    including a few strategies.
    Stage 1: Xavier mansion
    Boss: The Blob
    Difficulty: Easy
     The Blob is the first boss in the game. He is huge and looks unbeatable but,
    that is not true actually he is pretty easy to beat. When the battle begins,
    take the health power up and prepare to face the Blob. If you are playing with
    Logan, just do him a combo and wait for him to get up. If you are with cyclopes
    hit him four times and retreat. Don't get too close or he will do you a belly
    hit. When he jumps in the air just hit him there. Just do this with all 
    characters and get ready for the next stage!
    Stage 2: Canadian Showdown
    Boss: Cable
    Difficulty: Easy - Medium
     Cable appears to be the guardian of Department H. I suggest that you use
    mutant powers against this guy. When he trows a grenade time will slow down 
    but you better avoid even his guns. The best way to dodge all his attack is 
    to do him a combo then quickly run away from him. After he is down you will go
    inside Department H.
    Stage 3: Department H
    Sub boss: Sabertooth
    Difficulty: Easy
     Wolverine's long time nemesis, Sabretooth. He is actually pretty easy to
    beat. Make sure that the mines next to you aren't blown up because, you
    might used them to your advantage. They don't do much damage but it's
    fun to see him blow up. I don't know what he is doing in his mouth. Maybe
    he is clouding something. Anyway if you are a perfect button masher then
    Sabertooth won't be a problem.
    Boss: Gambit
    Difficulty: Medium
     My mother's second most favorite X-man. Ok enough about her let's talk
    about the boss. Gambit is actually tougher than Sabertooth but I think
    it should be the other way around. Do a combo and retreat. Watch out
    for the cards because they hurt. Your mutant power is very useful here
    so use it wisely.
    Stage 4: Black Bird
    Boss: The Phoenix
    Difficulty: Easy - medium
     She sounds hard but not if you know how to dodge her attacks. First
    take out the red robots but the green ones will keep respawning until
    Phoenix is defeated. She has two main attacks, create a shield to 
    knock you off her and a little lightening at you. Avoiding the 
    lightning is pretty easy. Keep a small distance when attacking her to
    avoid the shield. After she is down prepare for the next level.
    Stage 5: Sentinel base
    Boss: Juggernaut
    Difficulty: Medium
     This is the hardest boss so far. What ever you do don't tap the A
    button or he will counter you. Sentinels will keep coming to his
    aid so focus on Juggernaut. All his attacks are pretty strong and
    if he stomps the ground time will slow. Just smack him down and
    run away. The good thing is that you can charge up your mutant
    power multiple times here so you could beat him faster.
    Stage 6: Undersea base
    Boss: Magneto
    Difficulty: Easy
     My favorite villain. Well he has been a villain, an anti hero
    and even a hero. Ok enough let's cut it to the battle. Most of
    helmet heads attacks are from the ground and you can avoid them
    easy. He also creates shields like Phoenix so use the same 
    strategy. Don't think the game is over yet.
    Stage 7: Paris
    Sub boss: Nightcrawler
    Difficulty: Easy - Medium
     Nightcrawler has a teleportation attack that friezes you and hits
    you with brutal force. If you can use your mutant powers on him
    atleast two times he won't be a problem. Remember to use the
    spikes from the left.
    Boss: Psylock
    Difficulty: Medium
     If you try to attack her, bam she will kick your butt. In order
    to beat her, you need to have mutant power or use brutal force.
    There are no spikes here only you and Psylock in a deadly mortal
    combat fight. Air attacks help here but not much. If you manage
    to beat her then prepare for the next round.
    Stage 8: The Savage Land
    Sub boss: Pterodactyl
    Difficulty: Easy
     If there weren't guys helping him out this would have been
    the easiest fight. Just go and punch him until he cryes for
    his mother.
    Boss: Beast
    Difficulty: Medium
     I never knew that mutants can walk on water until now.
    Beast is like a break dancer and uses it to hit you but,
    there is one which can freeze you so make sure you aren't
    close to him. Beast is also fast and follows you everywhere
    like a cold. Doing combos on him isn't hard but he does
    some damage.
    Stage 9: The Statue of Liberty
    Boss: Colossus
    Difficulty: Medium - hard
     In my opinion this is the hardest fight in the game. Not
    that Colossus is too hard but because of all the enemies
    on the screen that help him. Colossus will remind you of
    Juggernaut and he is nearly as strong as him. I suggest
    you use the same strategy but watch out for his special
    attack. It freezes you (like most) and does damage. The
    good thing is that you can quickly recharge your mutant
    power meter due to the fact that there are so many
    Stage 10: Genosha
    Boss: Silver Samurai
    Difficulty: Medium
     The main problem with this guy is his bombs and sword.
    If you are in the right place you should avoid them.
    Just do him combos and retreat. Mutant power is also
    required here.
    Stage 11: The Golden Gate
    Sub boss: Arch Angel
    Difficulty: Easy
     Angel is easy and when nobody is helping him then
    it's very easy. Do him a few combos and he is done
    for. Try not to use air attacks or he might hit
    Boss: Bishop
    Difficulty: Medium
     Bishop and Cable are like twin brothers who have
    the same attacks. The best way to take out Bishop
    is to pin him at the right corner and pummel his
    a$$ to death. Don't forget your mutant power.
    Stage 12: The blue area of the Moon
    Sub boss: Pyro
    Difficulty: Medium
     Pyro isn't that weak. Most important, dodge his
    attacks. Pin him at the fire and finish him with
    a few combos.
    Final boss: Apocalypse
    Difficulty: Easy - Medium
     Sorry to disappoint but if you expected a real final
    fight then you are wrong. He has good stamina but
    that can't save him. He has an annoying attack that
    hits you nomatter where you are. He also has this razor
    which can be easily avoided. Just use your
    mutant power on him and he is done.
    Congratulations! You have earned your terrible ending!
