    analog stick controller:

    D     = D-pad
    LA/RA = Left and Right thumbsticks
    LT/RT = Left and Right triggers (small shoulder buttons)
    LS/RS = Left and Right (large) shoulder buttons
    *NOTE* The game uses the four face buttons on your gamepad for executing 
    Powers and playing mini-games. It displays the buttons on screen in the 
    following pattern:
    USE         SMASH
    In order for the on-screen display to match your button configuration, you 
    need to map the buttons on your controller accordingly. So, if your button 
    configuration is:
    (3)   (2)
    then map the buttons:
    1 = Normal Attack
    2 = Smash Attack
    3 = Use
    4 = Jump
    If your button configuration is:
    (2)   (3)
    then map the buttons:
    1 = Normal Attack
    2 = Use
    3 = Smash Attack
    4 = Jump
    And so on.
                                   BASIC GAMEPLAY
     Changes vs X-Men Legends
    If you played X-Men Legends (especially II), here's a quick rundown of the 
    differences. Once you know these, you can jump right in and play.
    * "Xtraction Points" are now "S.H.I.E.L.D. Access Points" (SAP). They have 
    the S.H.I.E.L.D. eagle logo instead of an X. They are, otherwise, exactly the 
    same and allow all the same functionality (Saving, Changing Team, Teleporting 
    to another Access Point, etc.)
    * Tech Bits are now S.H.I.E.L.D. Credits; they're still money.
    * Heroes have eight normal powers and one extreme power.
    * (PC Only): Using the keyboard, all powers are used by pressing the 
    corresponding number key (1 through 8 and 0 for the extreme). There's no 
    "Powers Menu" when using the keyboard.
    * There are no health or energy packs. Health and energy orbs appear as you 
    defeat enemies and break objects. These orbs automatically restore the health 
    or energy of the nearest hero. If that hero doesn't need any health or 
    energy, the next closest hero receives the boost and on down the line. (Note: 
    passing of orbs from one hero to the next only operates in Story Mode. In 
    Arcade Mode, you must move your hero over the orb to receive the boost.)
    * KO'd heroes must "rest" for five minutes. You can then revive them at the 
    next SAP using the "Revive Team" option. You no longer have to pay to revive 
    downed teammates.
    * You can buy skill ranks. The more skill ranks you buy, the more new skill 
    ranks cost. Sometimes, you can only increase a skill by purchasing new ranks; 
    you can't use skill points to get new skill ranks.
    * Each hero can only equip one special item. There is less equipment in the 
    * Each hero has four outfits, and each outfit can be upgraded using Credits. 
    The types of upgrades vary for each outfit.
    * There's no store. You can sell excess items on any hero's equipment screen; 
    however, once "sold", you can't buy it back because there's no store.
    * You can now play through the main story in competitive multi-player instead 
    of just cooperative multi-player.
    * To use extreme powers, you need momentum. Momentum is gained by using 
    "finishers". A finisher is any combo attack that takes out an enemy. In this 
    case, "combo attack" refers to a sequence of melee attacks, not a combination 
    power attack. For example, using Trip (ATTACK - SMASH - ATTACK) to take out 
    an enemy would be a finisher and you will gain momentum. You will also 
    occasionally get momentum from treasure drops--they look like really big 
    orbs. An individual hero's momentum shows as a yellow meter around the 
    character portrait.
    * Whenever you execute an extreme power, all members of your team that have 
    their extreme power unlocked and have a full momentum meter, will also 
    execute their extreme powers.
     After Beating the Game Once
    While you're playing the game, all the characters and outfits you unlock are 
    saved in a 'settings.dat' file in My Documents\Activision\Marvel Ultimate 
    When you start a new game after beating the game once, you can do a few 
    things differently:
    1) You can choose the team you want to use in the very first mission (on the 
    2) You can use any previously unlocked character and outfit.
    3) You can play in Hard mode (it doesn't matter if you previously beat the 
    game on Easy or Normal mode).
    4) You can choose to use default character stats or use the stats from a 
    previously saved game. (This does mean you can run your high level characters 
    through Easy mode, if you really want to.)
    If you want to start a "clean" game, delete the 'settings.dat' file (you 
    might want to copy it somewhere else first, so you can retrieve your 
    unlockables later). The game will create a new settings.dat file when you 
    start it up again.

     My Team
    MUA gives you the ability to form your own team and gain team bonuses. When 
    you reach the beginning of the Atlantis mission, you can form a personal team 
    of four heroes. Using three or more of the heroes from your roster allows you 
    to earn team reputation and team skills.
    To build your team, first select the four heroes you want to form the base of 
    your roster. Then click the My Team button at any SAP (or during the initial 
    selection process at the beginning of the Atlantean mission). Choose to 
    create your team from scratch, select a logo, enter a team name and your team 
    is formed. Or, choose to use one of the three pre-formed teams.
    * Avengers (Captain America, Ms. Marvel, Iron Man and Thor)
    * Fantastic Four (Mr. Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch and Thing)
    * Marvel Knights (Black Panther, Doctor Strange, Luke Cage, Spider-Man)
    Now that you have your team roster, you will begin earning Reputation points 
    for completing objectives. Each 100 Reputation points earns you a team level; 
    at which time you receive a team skill point. You can spend team skill points 
    on team skills.
    * Team Vitality: Boosts team's maximum health
    * Team Synergy: Boosts team's maximum energy
    * Team Force: Increases all damage done by your team
    * Team Focus: Increases experience points gained
    * Team Tactics (requires team level 5): Increases the rate at which you gain
    * Team Bench (requires team level 5): Increases team roster slots
    You'll earn Reputation points and gain the benefit of Team Skills as long as 
    you are playing with at least three heroes from your Team Roster. Changing 
    the heroes in your Team Roster costs 50 Reputation points per change; so, 
    you're better off waiting until you can purchase Team Bench skill ranks to 
    increase your roster size.
     Unique Conversations
    Most of the time, in conversations with NPCs, only the NPC's dialogue is 
    vocalized. Sometimes, if you have a specific hero on your team when speaking 
    to an NPC, you will get a fully voiced, unique conversation between the hero 
    and the NPC.

    You start the game with Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor and Wolverine. 
    Overall, not a bad team; and, certainly good enough to get you through what 
    amounts to the tutorial stage of the game.
    Follow the path around the flight deck of the helicarrier, getting rid of the 
    Ultron warriors in your path. These guys are not that tough and can be taken 
    out mostly with normal and smash attacks. Captain America's Shield Throw is 
    very useful.
    After the second U-turn catwalks, you'll run into Scorpion; your first mini-
    boss. Take out the Ultron minions surrounding him, then devote yourself to 
    smashing the bug. Use Mjolnir's Might (Thor) liberally. This battle is made 
    easier by the health and energy orbs that periodically pop up.
    This is the tutorial stage, after all.
    After Scorpion is defeated, grab his "Tail", slog through a few more generic 
    bad guys; then, enter the Command Center of the helicarrier and talk to Nick 
    Fury. After you're through with him, turn around and walk onto the elevator 
    and press USE to exit the bridge.
    The elevator takes you from the bridge to the command deck. Right in front of 
    you is your first S.H.I.E.L.D. Access Point (SAP). You can save your game or 
    change your team members. Go right from the SAP and enter a control room.
    After the cutscene, pull the smashed transformer away from the wall (any 
    character can pull the equipment--you don't need Might). There's another 
    transformer to the left, pull it into place. The console on the upper catwalk 
    is now active and you can USE it to open the force field that blocks your 
    Enter the launch bay and find the missile control consoles; each is marked on 
    your map with a red X. There is one to the right and one to the left. 
    Regardless of the order in which you destroy them, the second missile is 
    A five-minute timer starts counting down in the lower right of your screen. 
    Return to the central platform for a fight with Bullseye. The objective is to 
    take care of him as quickly as possible, since you only have five minutes to 
    complete this objective. Bullseye obviously has some damaging ranged attacks; 
    try to stay behind him and beat him up. He shouldn't be that much trouble.
    Enter the room behind Bullseye and USE the panel to self-destruct the 
    missile. Go down the stairs and onto the elevator to enter the Barracks. 
    There's a SAP in front of you; nearby, a laptop is laying on the floor, grab 
    it for later. Just past the SAP, turn into the first room on your left.
    In single player mode, this is your first chance to use the AI heroes to 
    perform simultaneous actions. There are two consoles, each with a green X in 
    front of them. Take control of a hero and move to a green X and press USE. 
    Switch to another hero, move to the other green X and press USE. Both heroes 
    will turn and activate the consoles simultaneously.
    The force fields down the hall will come down and S.H.I.E.L.D. agents will be 
    released. Talk to the first one you see. As you go down the hall, you can 
    enter the agents' rooms and read their personal diaries--nothing important; 
    just fun.
    At the end of the hall, if you turn left and jump up to a little alcove, you 
    can get a Strike point upgrade. Turn right and jump up and you have your 
    first meeting with Radioactive Man and Winter Soldier. Concentrate on Winter 
    Soldier; when his health gets low, both mini-bosses will flee.
    Follow them until you reach a large, outdoor platform next to one of the 
    engines. Here you have to fight both of them to the death. Beam attacks work 
    better on both evildoers; Radioactive Man, especially, is resistant to 
    standard melee attacks.
    Move around a lot and practice dodging (quickly press GUARD while moving) to 
    avoid the ranged attacks of both bad guys. When they are down, find the 
    platform to the right (as you face out toward the engine) and jump or fly up 
    to get a Body point upgrade.
    Head back the way you came, and find the exit point marked on the map. This 
    takes you to the Upper Batteries. Fight your way through a horde of minions 
    until you exit onto the helicarrier's upper deck. Fin Fang Foom, a huge 
    dragon, alights and threatens you; then, he takes off.
    Run forward to a gun battery and press USE to take control. Fire at FFF while 
    he flies around. When you hit him, you'll be knocked off the gun turret. Take 
    this opportunity to run away as FFF is about to land. FFF has two attacks: 
    five fireballs projected from his mouth in an arc in front of him and a huge 
    claw strike. Both these attacks are very short range.
    Stay back away from FFF and hit him with ranged attacks. Deal with the 
    minions that pop up now and again and keep into FFF with beams and other 
    long-range powers. He'll take off again, so run forward and use the guns to 
    bring him down. Rinse and repeat until FFF is history. Mop up, collect your 
    goodies and go back inside.

    After the FMV sequence, you'll be able to explore HQ: Stark Tower. Within the 
    main room you can find:
    * A S.H.I.E.L.D. Access Point
    * Upgrades for Body, Strike and Focus
    * A sketch book to unlock concept art
    * A training simulator (though no missions are yet unlocked)
    * A review computer to let you see what collectible items you've found
    * A trivia computer you can use to earn XP by answering trivia questions
      (answers are found further down in this guide)
    You can complete the optional Electronic Secrets quest by talking to Vision, 
    then Black Widow, then Vision again. Talk to Dr. Hank Pym to open the Cyber 
    Speak optional quest. When you're ready to begin your first mission, talk to 
    Wyatt Wingfoot. First ask him to investigate Black Widow's laptop, which you 
    picked up on the helicarrier; then ask to be taken to Omega Base.
    As you enter Omega Base, you'll be informed you now have access to a 
    S.H.I.E.L.D. Port. Open the Game Menu (PAUSE) and choose Portal to open a 
    portal back to base (Stark Tower). Once in the base, you can use the 
    equipment/SAP at the base, then use the portal to return to where you opened 
    the portal.
    Portals are one-use only--once you return through the portal, it disappears. 
    You must then wait five minutes before opening another portal. Portals do 
    last through saved games; so, you can use them to save your game and quit 
    playing for a while.
    In the first room after the entrance, you'll meet Dum Dum. After your 
    conversation, he'll follow you and you must make sure he stays alive. Shortly 
    after Dum Dum joins your group, you'll be tasked with taking out the primary 
    drives of the base. When you receive this mission, the first drivetrain gear 
    is directly in front of you. Destroy it; then, go to the other end of the 
    room and destroy another. In the lower area of this room is a Daredevil 
    action figure.
    After the first drivetrain room, you'll enter a control room. Unfortunately, 
    Dum Dum can't access the engines from here, so you have to get to the bridge. 
    Go out the right door of the control room to pick up a Simulator Disc 
    (Captain America). Go around to the other side of the control room to get a 
    Body Upgrade.
    The next room features a fight against Crimson Dynamo. This one's pretty 
    tough as Dynamo can reflect melee damage back in a fiery explosion and he's 
    fairly resistant to energy beam attacks. Try to stay back and hit him with 
    melee ranged attacks (e.g. Captain America's Shield Throw or Mr. Fantastic's 
    far-reaching punch).
    After the fight with Dynamo, there are two more gears at the far end of the 
    room. Destroy them; then, continue to the Omega Exterior. This is a side-
    scrolling level (you have no control over the camera). A helicopter will show 
    up and begin firing missiles at you. Whenever you see a red circle form on 
    the walkway, quickly get out of the way.
    Fight your way along the exterior of the base to the Project Labs. There's a 
    SAP; just beyond is a room full of comatose Super Soldiers. Mysterio shows up 
    and overloads the neuralyzer and you've got six big bad guys looking for a 
    piece of your hide.
    Now is the time to use traps or AoE powers. Stunning powers also work well--
    anything to keep the soldiers off-balance and unable to gang up on you. In 
    the next hallway, enter the room to the left to meet Dr. Bruce Banner. 
    (Unfortunately, you don't get his green alter ego in this game.) He'll lead 
    you to a control room to shut off a gamma bomb. Before following him, find 
    Dr. Pym's cybernetic helmet on a table in a corner of the room (opposite the 
    exit door).
    Of course, the control panel is damaged. Leave the control room and head 
    straight across the hall. In the next hall, enter the first room to the right 
    and pick up a Simulator Disc (Wolverine). Go down the hall to the large room 
    at the end, destroy the mobs and use the control panel in the center of the 
    room. Dr. Banner is now able to deactivate the bomb.
    Continue out of the large room, through the door to the left of where you 
    came in. Next up is Mysterio and this is a very tough fight. Mysterio creates 
    two projections of himself and destroying the projections is a waste of time. 
    Unfortunately, in the chaos, it's difficult to tell which is the real 
    Mysterio. Unleash AoE powers and try to wear all three mini-bosses as quickly 
    as possible.
    Beyond Mysterio is a fascinating ride up an elevator. As you ride up, enemies 
    will drop down. You can beat on them or throw them over the side of the 
    elevator (the latter is quicker). Occasionally a bomb will drop onto the 
    elevator with you. Approach and press USE to start a deactivation mini-game. 
    Follow the on-screen key prompts, quickly pressing each key or button as it 
    is displayed. If you fail, you get a nasty burn.
    At the top of the lift, go down a short hall. Along the hall is a hidden 
    doorway to a room where some super soldiers are attacking the Omega computer. 
    You have to stop the super soldiers from destroying the console; or, at the 
    end of the game, you learn a virus has wiped out much of the mutant 
    population. Go you.
    Then, it's on to another lift, which takes you to the Top Deck. Go down the 
    catwalks and talk to the S.H.I.E.L.D. agent about using an anti-aircraft gun 
    on the helicopter that's been bothering you. There are two ack-ack guns in 
    front of you; both are on fire. Go down the stairs in between the two 
    batteries and collect a sketch book.
    Follow the path until your way is blocked by an explosion. Go up the stairs 
    and around to an upper catwalk. After the enemies are defeated, find a large 
    crate in the corner and pull it to the edge of the catwalk, where the railing 
    has been destroyed. Stand behind it and rapidly press the key shown on 
    screen. The crate will fall down and break through the glass area of the 
    deck. Drop down and go inside.
    Pick up the Black Panther action figure right in front of you. Fight your way 
    through a short corridor and back outside to the Top Deck. You'll soon run 
    into a S.H.I.E.L.D. agent who asks you to keep the helicopter off his back 
    while he unlocks the door to the bridge.
    You get 40 seconds to destroy the helicopter. Jump down to the lower area 
    where the ack-ack battery is located. Ignore the mobs and USE the battery. It 
    only takes one shot to get rid of the copter and it will conveniently hover 
    right in front of you. Mop up the area around the guns; make sure you pick up 
    a Focus upgrade on the upper level near the door to the bridge.
    As you enter the bridge, you're frozen in place. To advance, you have to 
    correctly answer questions posed by MODOK. The first three questions, and the 
    correct answers are:
    * What is the atomic symbol for gold? (Au)
    * What percentage of the Earth's atmosphere is oxygen? (21 percent)
    * Which of the following is not a geologic period of the Earth? (Neoprene)
    After the third correct answer the fight is on. MODOK has a particularly 
    nasty radial blast attack. You can see it coming when he starts to glow and 
    lifts slightly higher off the ground. If you can avoid that blast and 
    otherwise keep yourself and your teammates pounding on him, you should be all 
    If you get low on health or energy, drop down to the lower level and break 
    some crates or KO some minions. You likely will collect health and energy 
    orbs; then, resume on MODOK. When the big brain is out of the way, and you're 
    ready to return to Stark Tower, USE the console on the upper platform.

    Back in Stark Tower, you'll notice a new marker on your map. Right next to 
    the SAP is a waterfall. Approach the waterfall and press USE to open the Iron 
    Man Lab. Inside, talk to Jarvis to get a small quest (Link to the Past) and 
    to Weasel to continue the quest related to Black Widow's laptop.
    Down on the lower level you can talk to Black Panther, Elektra and Spider-
    Man. You'll also find a Simulator Disc (Iron Man) and the Iron Man Health 
    Console. USE the console to bring up a bonus skill point. Under the center 
    stairs you can find a Black Panther action figure. Wolverine hangs out on the 
    upper level; there's a sketch book nearby. The heroes in this room don't have 
    anything quest related; but, they do add flavor to the Black Widow story.
    Return to the main room and talk to Hank Pym to end Cyber Speak. Talk to 
    Vision about Jacob Fury. Talk to Black Widow about Baron Strucker and to Nick 
    Fury about Gabriel Jones. Return to the Iron Man Lab and talk to Weasel. Tell 
    him the password he needs is Gabriel Jones. You can also find, in the main 
    office, the cufflinks Jarvis needs for Link to the Past.
    When you're ready, go talk to Wingfoot about leaving for Atlantis. He'll 
    first ask you to talk to Dr. Pym about the Quinjet's data feed. Hold off on 
    doing that for a moment and ask to be taken to Atlantis.
    You can now form your own team. By creating your own team (or using one of 
    the pre-packaged teams), you gain additional bonuses when using three or four 
    members from your roster of heroes. See the Characters section above for more 
    information on creating a team. You can choose to create a team now; or, wait 
    until later and do so at any SAP. However, once you create a team, you can't 
    undo your choices.
    Go ahead and form your team; you'll be able to start earning Reputation 
    points right away. Once you've picked your team, you'll find yourself in the 
    Nannite Chamber of the S.H.I.E.L.D. outpost and your heroes will 
    automatically "infect" themselves with the nannites. Look around the room to 
    find a Focus upgrade.
    Continue through the outpost to the Dive Chamber. (There's no fighting in 
    here.) Look around a bit to find a Black Panther action figure; then, use the 
    Dive Chamber Controls and jump through the newly opened hatch in the floor. 
    You're now underwater.
    Pretty cool, huh?
    Fight your way through the Outpost area until you find Namor. Once all the 
    Atlanteans are defeated, Namor is automatically freed and Namorita shows up 
    and hands out your tasks. One difference you'll note in this area is the 
    presence of rejuvenators. Rejuvenator mobs and revive fallen allies; which 
    means you have to take out the rejuvenators or the other mobs just keep 
    coming. The female Atlantean Champion mobs are the rejuvenators in this 
    mission; so, keep an eye out for them and concentrate fire on them before 
    dealing with the other schmucks.
    After Namor is freed, two exits open up. Take the one that leads to the 
    Temple of Negrete. Break the wall to your left to get a skill point. Continue 
    to the first large room, take a right and fight your way down to the red X 
    marked on your map. Stand in front of the marked doors, press USE and then 
    rapidly press the key shown on screen to force open the doors. You'll collect 
    a pearl known as the Eye of Negrete.
    Go back to the large room and continue straight across. In this side room is 
    a giant clam. Stand next to it, press USE and rapidly press the key shown to 
    force it open and get another Eye of Negrete. Then, break the wall to the 
    right of the clam (as you face the clam from the door) to pick up a Simulator 
    Disc (Mr. Fantastic).
    Go back to the large room and head straight across from your original 
    entrance into the Temple. In the small room beyond, go right, kill the bad 
    guys and pick up a trident that's on a pedestal in the center of the room. Go 
    straight back across the "hub" room into a room with a large statue.
    Stand on the shells on either side of the statue and press USE to place an 
    Eye in each shell. Then go up on the ledge, stand in front of the staff and 
    press USE to place the trident on the staff. The status will blow open the 
    door in front of it.
    Go through, kill the mobs and collect the Walek Seaweed. Namorita opens a 
    portal back to her location; talk to her to complete the Mission of Mercy 
    side quest and earn 15 Reputation points.
    Now would be a good time to open a portal back to Stark Tower and save your 
    game. While you're there, talk to Hank Pym about the Quinjet data feed. 
    You'll complete the Data Stream side quest and earn 5 Reputation points.
    Return to the Atlantean Outpost and enter the Atlantean Trenches. Here you'll 
    have to keep an eye out for floating mines. Hit one and you'll take a lot of 
    damage. Not far in you'll find the first sonic emitter; but, it's guarded by 
    Byrrah and Krang.
    These guys are plenty tough. However, there's nothing particularly special 
    about them. It's just an extended beat down. You can always retreat to the 
    Outpost and open a Portal to Stark Tower if you need a breather. Once those 
    two are down, take out the sonic emitter they were guarding.
    Beyond that emitter, the path splits. Take the left path to another sonic 
    emitter; and, a Strike upgrade next to the emitter platform. Then, head right 
    to find a SAP and the third emitter. Beyond the third emitter, look for an 
    Atlantean caught in a giant clam. Force open the clam and the Atlantean gives 
    you a combination for a safe next to a sunken submarine.
    Turn around and head straight away from the clam and swim up over the coral 
    wall to find the sub and a chest nearby. Open the chest to get a piece of 
    equipment and a Daredevil action figure. Continue to the Atlantean Throne.
    Take either path (left or right) around to the SAP. Beyond the SAP, after 
    killing the mobs, take the bead from the shell on the floor. Go into the next 
    room and place the bead on the center shell. The side doors will open and 
    spew forth mobs. Take them out, then go into the side rooms and swim over the 
    whirlpools (rapidly press JUMP to swim) and get the beads. In one of the side 
    rooms is a sketch book hidden between the columns along the side of the 
    Beyond is the boss fight against Tiger Shark and Attuma. The secret to taking 
    these guys out is to USE the consoles at either end of the room. This forces 
    them to come to ground where you can beat on them. They can beat back fairly 
    well--especially Attuma--but you shouldn't have too much trouble with them. 
    Especially if you have good range attacks.
    When they're defeated, a pit to Defender's Crypt opens. Run back to the SAP 
    and save your game, then go through to the crypt. Fight your way along the 
    path, counting the coffins up on platforms. Next to the fourth coffin is a 
    Body upgrade. At the end of the Crypts is the entrance to the Arena. You 
    might want to Portal back to Stark Tower and save your game.
    Just a suggestion.
    Enter the Arena, have a chat with Mandarin, fight Kraken. All in a day's work 
    for superheroes! Kraken is your first mini-game boss fight. There's only one 
    way to defeat this monster, and that's to play a series of mini-games. Stay 
    out of the way of the beast and wait for it to break open one of the four 
    corner crypts.
    When it does, out pour a bunch of Atlanteans. Ignore them for now and swim 
    into the crypt. Up pops the mini-game. You have to follow the on-screen 
    prompts, pressing a series of keys. If you complete the sequence correctly 
    (about five or six keys), Kraken breaks the crypt completely and the big 
    column falls on its head.
    Now, you have to knock out the Atlanteans that were in the crypt while 
    avoiding the darts Kraken shoots at you, not to mention the occasional ground 
    smash (radial attack). When all the Atlanteans are gone, the Kraken breaks 
    open another crypt, more Atlanteans come out, you play another mini-game, 
    another column falls on Kraken's head, you KO the Atlanteans...
    And so on. When all four columns have combined to give Kraken a migraine, it 
    retreats and you can mop up the last of the Atlanteans. Collect your reward, 
    then go through the marked exit door to automatically return to Stark Tower 
    and receive your next mission.

    After the cutscene in Stark Tower, return to Iron Man Lab and talk to Weasel. 
    The earlier password you gave him worked, and now he needs you to find out 
    which of two hackers would be more trustworthy for the next stage of 
    investigation. Talk to Dr. Pym and Vision about the two hackers, C. B. 
    Cebulski and Beroge. Then, go back to Weasel and tell him to use Cebulski.
    Also talk to Nick Fury to open the Problematic Schematic side quest. There's 
    nothing more to do in Stark Tower; although, some of the NPCs have different 
    conversations now (nothing important). Talk to Wingfoot and ask to be taken 
    to the Valley of the Spirits.
    You begin in Ancients' Hall. In the very first room after the entrance hall, 
    go down to the lower level and look behind the columns for a sketch book. Now 
    there are two ways through Ancient's Hall, based on what attributes you have 
    on your team.
         THE SHORTCUT (requires Might, Flight and Fire Extinguisher)
        | Find the rope with the blue X on it and use a hero with Might to |
        | pull the rope (play the little mini-game). Go through the newly  |
        | opened door and destroy the enemies on the outer ledge. Fly over |
        | to the central platform and ring the gong by firing a power at   |
        | it. This opens a door in the right wall. Go through and find the |
        | braziers to your right marked with blue X's. Put the fires out   |
        | nearly simultaneously. You'll have about five seconds after ex-  |
        | tinguishing one brazier to snuff the other one. This opens a door|
        | into the final room. Note that, if you go this way, you skip     |
        | fighting Ultimo and don't get the Strike upgrade near him.       |
        | (Unless, of course, you backtrack.)                              |
         THE LONG WAY
        | In the first room, take the first door on your left and go around|
        | on the walkway. Then, take the first door on the left and there's|
        | another walkway, this time with a mini-boss, Dragonman. Like many|
        | of these mini-boss fights, ranged attacks work best as Dragonman |
        | mostly uses short-range melee attacks. From the next room, once  |
        | again go through the first door on the left. This time the walk- |
        | way is blocked by Ultimo. He's a lot easier than you may think,  |
        | Dragonman was actually more difficult. At the far end of the     |
        | walkway is a Strike point behind a fire pit. Finally, you reach  |
        | the last room.                                                   |
    In the final room you'll have to defeat a horde of Shaolin monks before 
    getting access to the exit room, which has a SAP. Beyond is the Golden Court. 
    The first large room of the Court is full of clay warriors; who just aren't 
    very tough. Wipe them out, then fly up to a balcony that's on the right 
    corner of the room opposite where you entered.
    Go through the door and find a weapon cache in the room beyond. Leave this 
    room by the only other door and fight your way to a very large room with 
    three levels. You'll start running into Shaolin Monk Healers at this point. 
    If you see your opponents glowing red and their health bars turn green, find 
    the bald guy and take him down quickly.
    At the end of the large room is a huge staircase. At the top of the stairs, 
    jump to the balcony on your left and enter the side room to pick up the 
    Ultimo schematics Nick Fury is looking for. Go back to the top of the huge 
    staircase and jump to the balcony on your right. This side room has a 
    Simulator Disc (Thing).
    Now leave the large room and enter a boss fight against Grey Gargoyle. As you 
    may expect, GG relies on heavy-duty melee attacks (plus he can turn you to 
    stone for a short time), so using ranged attacks is the best way to go. As he 
    loses health, healers will pop up and start regenerating his health. As soon 
    as you see one of the healer monks appear, get rid of him. It will 
    considerably shorten your battle with Gargoyle.
    After Gargoyle, bust your way down the next hall to reach Celestial Hall. Go 
    straight across the first large room to find a SAP with a locked door just 
    beyond. From the SAP, go right and enter the side room. Kill the monks, then 
    push or pull two large blocks over two of the three plates in the floor. The 
    plates depress; then, step on the third plate to raise a lever. USE the lever 
    to open one of the doors next to the SAP. Don't forget a weapon cache while 
    you're in the room.
    Go across the SAP room to the other side area. Go down the hall, and then 
    through a door to your left. When you have finished killing monks (and a lot 
    of them), a lever pops up and you can USE it to open the other door next to 
    the SAP.
    Beyond the door is Ultimo 2, which isn't really that much harder than the 
    first Ultimo (if you fought him earlier). Ranged attacks work pretty well as 
    they keep you out of harms way. As you leave the room, make sure you pick up 
    the Body and Focus upgrades near the door.
    Up next is the Forbidden Passage. Soon after you enter, you find Dr. Strange 
    in a fight with a bunch of monks. Help him out and he will journey with you 
    to find the Orb of Agamotto. After Strange joins you, you'll pass through a 
    long hall. In the room beyond, look right and see a Simulator Disc (Crimson 
    Dynamo) hidden among some whirling-blade columns. Destroy the columns with a 
    ranged attack and collect the disc.
    Next up is another large room. One door here cannot be opened. Continue 
    through the door that is accessible and work your way toward the red X on 
    your map. You'll find a treasure chest with Strange's Orb. He'll thank you, 
    you'll get 10 Reputation points, and Dr. Strange is now unlocked as a 
    playable character.
    Backtrack a little, where the previous non-opening door has opened to spew 
    forth a bunch of monks. Defeat the monks and go through the door. You'll be 
    in a small hall with four alcoves: two each on your left and right. Each 
    alcove is "guarded" by a Bhudda statue and contains some treasure. Bust down 
    the statues and collect the swag. The second alcove on your left also has a 
    Black Panther action figure.
    Next up is Mandarin's Court and the final battle for Act I. Mandarin is not 
    that tough--his attacks don't do much damage; however, he is fairly resistant 
    to damage, so this is mostly a test of patience.
    But wait! What's this? When Mandarin's health reaches about 80%, he teleports 
    into a closed balcony above you and sends out some exploding spiders and some 
    Ultimo 3 prototypes. The spiders are the big worry. They chase you down, then 
    explode, causing a fair amount of damage.
    The trick is to lure the spiders on to the glowing teleport pad without 
    stepping on the pad yourself. When you manage that trick, the spider 
    teleports up to Mandarin's balcony and destroys the Ultimo up there. You can 
    then teleport up to Mandarin and smack him around a bit.
    It takes quite a bit of patience to perfect luring the spiders over the 
    active teleport pad while avoiding damage from the Ultimo 3's. However, once 
    you get the hang of it, the battle's all but over. Mandarin will teleport 
    three more times. In the fourth room, loot the weapon cache in the room after 
    Mandarin teleports out. After the last beat-down, he drops back down to the 
    main floor and you can finish him off there.
    Jump through the newly opened portal to return to Stark Tower. Fury informs 
    you the base of operations is moving. Before talking to Wingfoot and asking 
    to go, be sure to talk to Fury again and give him the Ultimo schematics to 
    close out that quest.

    Welcome to your new pad. Dr. Strange's Sanctum Sanctorum serves as the HQ for 
    Act II. Explore the area and talk to everyone you find. There are several 
    rooms in the Sanctorum; and, you'll find the usual assortment of goodies, 
    * Strike upgrade
    * 2 Focus upgrades (in Dr. Strange's bedroom--you must have him on your
      team to get in there)
    * A little mini-quest...talk to Vision and then find 'A History of The
      Arcane' on an upstairs balcony in the Sanctuary; return to Vision to
      get your Reputation points
    * Talk to Weasel to continue the Black Widow laptop side quest
    * A sketch book
    * A Daredevil action figure
    * A Simulator Disc (Dr. Strange)
    And, of course, you'll find the review computer, S.H.I.E.L.D. training 
    computer and trivia game. (Answers further down in this guide.) When you've 
    finished exploring Dr. Strange's crib, USE the Orb of Teleportation in the 
    Sanctum and you'll be taken to Dr. Doom's castle.
    You're going to go a long way with no S.H.I.E.L.D. Access Points or the 
    ability to portal back to base. In some areas, health orbs will be few and 
    far between. You might want a hero with a healing power (such as Spider-
    Woman). Just a suggestion.
    Wipe out the Doombots in the first room and then locate the treasure chest on 
    an upper platform. USE it for a little fun...
    Well. Now. Something's not quite right here, wouldn't you say?
    Up next is a hall filled with "chomping" gates. They're not hard to duck 
    through; however, your AI companions are not so good at dodging the gates and 
    there aren't a lot of breakables lying around to give out health orbs. A 
    healing power would be a good thing here.
    Beyond the chompers is a room with five side rooms. Break through the wood 
    gates and collect the goodies inside. (Including another of those funky 
    "treasure" chests.) There's also a Focus upgrade, a Daredevil action figure 
    and a Simulator Disc (Mysterio).
    You then enter a hall with tracks on the floor. Advance a little way down the 
    hall and gates will come down and the wall behind you will sprout spikes and 
    start rumbling along the tracks. The camera will become fixed so your team is 
    running toward you. Run as fast as you can, blowing through the gates as 
    quickly as you can. Ignore the Doombots that pop up, just get to the end of 
    the hall and duck through the side door. Once the spiked wall has passed, you 
    can push it into a secret room (does not require a Mighty character). Collect 
    a free skill point and a (real) treasure chest.
    In the next room you'll have to fight more Doombots. Watch out for the Dr. 
    Doom masks on the floor; they spout flame when you step on or near them. Then 
    you'll be in another hall with side rooms blocked by wooden gates. You can 
    get a Strike upgrade from one of those rooms, so blast those gates!
    Finally, you get a mini-boss fight against Jean Grey. Remember her? She was 
    one of the most powerful characters in X-Men Legends (I & II).
    Yeah. Her.
    You're going to take some damage. Jean's got her full arsenal of nasty 
    psychic attacks, especially a radial blast that will fling your entire team 
    away. Ranged melee attacks (like Cap's Shield or Thor's Hammer) work pretty 
    well. Energy attacks are less effective. After Jean runs away, you'll finally 
    get the answers to your questions.
    The big clown arms with hammers kind of gave that away. But...anyway...Head 
    through the door to enter the Big Top. By the way, you can't re-enter the 
    fake Castle Doom. Not ever, so make sure you collect everything before 
    You're on a platform next to some turnstiles. To your left is a Simulator 
    Disc (Luke Cage) and a sketch book. Go down the stairs and beat up some 
    clowns. (For some reason that feels very satisfying.) To your left is a 
    circus wagon; break it open to rescue Senator Kelly. Go around the other way 
    to enter the tent itself.
    And, it's another fight against Jean Grey. Same story as before--it's tough. 
    Try to avoid the radial attack and hit her with ranged melee attacks. When 
    you've beaten her, she is sucked into a video game and some clowns show up in 
    a clown car. Defeat them all and the car's trunk pops open and you can get a 
    token coin for the arcade. Step over to the arcade game and USE it.
    Now, *this* is way cool. You get to play Pitfall!
    You probably don't really need a walkthrough for this. Only the hero who USED 
    the game actually plays through. All you can do is jump over obstacles or 
    on/off swinging vines. It's not that hard. (It is, after all, an 8-bit game.)
    Along the way you can collect gold nuggets by dropping down to the lower 
    levels; but, eventually, (eventually means on the 17th screen), you'll reach 
    the little mini-carousel that signals the end of the game. USE it to exit the 
    game and return Jean to her normal self. You can now leave the tent. Find the 
    door to the Boardwalk (it's not marked on your map) and return there to get a 
    newly reveal SAP. Yay!
    Re-enter the tent and find the door marked Pinball. Now you get to play 
    Arcade's special version of this arcade classic. You'll fight your way 
    through a pinball-machine, bouncing off obstacles (some of which deliver a 
    shock), beating up clowns, and trying to rack up 1,000,000 points. It's 
    really pretty simple.
    Around the arena are destructible markers with Arcade's face. Each one 
    knocked down is worth 25,000 points. If you clear all the markers, you'll get 
    exactly 1,000,000 points. To clear all those markers, you're also going to 
    have to fight Rhino (use ranged energy attacks) and Shocker (use heavy melee 
    attacks). Search the area carefully, because you can also get a Strike 
    upgrade, Body upgrade and sketch book.
    When you have 1,000,000 points, the primary flippers will be destroyed and 
    you can approach them. Pick up the golden ticket (and sing, "I've got a 
    golden ticket"--or, maybe, "Candyman", your choice) and use the SAP behind 
    the flippers.
    Now go through the newly opened gate and you'll be back on the Boardwalk 
    outside the Big Top. Go back inside the tent and exit into the area marked 
    Fairgrounds. Fight your way around the area, taking note of one of those 
    "test-of-strength" games (hit the lever with a hammer to ring a bell). At the 
    far end, you can break through a wood wall and pick up a Focus upgrade; as 
    well as drive a bumpercar. (Not of any real use, but fun.)
    Go back to the spot where you saw the ring-the-bell game. Inside the nearby 
    tent is a hammer. It's laying on the ground and glowing. Step near it and 
    press USE to pick it up. Now use a fully-charged SMASH ATTACK on the ring-
    the-bell game. The gate behind the game will open.
    Start clearing out the next area. Be on the lookout for a sketch book tucked 
    into a little alcove near the gate. You'll also see another ring-the-bell 
    game. (If you dropped your hammer, a new one will be back in the tent.) Smash 
    the game to pick up a bunch of loot.
    Near the end of the area is a Claw Challenge game. If you look closely, 
    you'll see Blade slumped in among the teddy bears. Press USE to play the game 
    and follow the on screen prompts to push the correct series of keys. 
    Correctly finish the game and you'll grab Blade. He's now unlocked as a 
    playable character.
    Enter the tent at the end of the Fairgrounds. To your right are a bunch of 
    treasure chests. Some are empty, some have the hammer of doom and one is a 
    real treasure chest with a bunch of swag. When you're through searching for 
    loot, enter the Maze-o-Death.
    "Maze" is a bit of an overstatement. There's never any choice about which way 
    to go; and, it's very small. Walk over to a red hand on a spring and Pull the 
    Finger to open the hedge (as well as open a spike pit and spawn in a couple 
    of angry clowns). Do this a few more times. Near the final finger is a 
    Simulator Disc (Elektra).
    You'll also see a hammer on the ground near the final finger. Pull the finger 
    to open the last hedge, SMASH ATTACK the ring-the-bell game and walk through 
    the gate and play...
    This is so easy (at least, on Normal difficulty), it will be over almost 
    before you realize it. Your team jumps into bumpercars. Some clowns jump into 
    bumpercars and you bump into them. Just drive like a little old lady in a 
    Caddy* and you'll win easily.
    (*No offense to Cadillac.)
    Once you win, you get another golden ticket! (Man, Charlie only got one and 
    you get two. Who said life was fair?)
    Walk out the exit to find yourself back on the Boardwalk. Use the nearby SAP 
    to save your game, then enter the Big Top. USE the ticket booth to open the 
    door into the Fun House.
    First up is your choice of three doors. Only doors 1 and 3 are accessible. 
    Pick either one first.
    Wind your way through the hall until you enter the Pong room. Yes! You get to 
    play Breakout!. Walk behind the paddle and grab it (press-and-hold USE) and 
    move it back and forth to hit the ball. If you miss the ball, let go of the 
    block and then grab it again to make another ball appear. When all the blocks 
    have been knocked out, door number 2 opens.
    Go down the hall and step into an outdoor area. There's a Strike upgrade on 
    the ground in front of you. As you step forward, a wall comes crashing down 
    and you have to fight off a horde of mad clowns. When you're finished, look 
    near the poison-spewing flowers on the far wall. There's a Black Panther 
    action figure near the flowers; you'll have to take some damage to pick it 
    up. This is BP #5; and, if you've been good about collecting them, you can 
    now use Black Panther on your team. Then, blast your way through the stone 
    wall to get back to the main area.
    Now that door number 2 is open, step through and pull the finger. Defeat the 
    clowns in the disco arena; then, go through the next door and pull the 
    finger. You fall through the floor and arrive in the final arena. This one's 
    kind of tough. There's a giant robot and he's untouchable as well as highly 
    dangerous. There are also a lot of little minion clowns running around. 
    (There's also a Body point on one of the ramps on the outside edges of the 
    arena. Get it before getting into the main event.)
    You'll see four trap doors on the floor. Two are red and two are green. You 
    need to step on the red ones and fall through. This will send your hero (just 
    your player-controlled hero, not the entire team) blasting out a cannon. If 
    you're lucky, you'll land on the Bot's head. If not, just step through the 
    red trapdoor on the opposite side of the room and repeat the process until 
    you do land on the Bot's head.
    Now you play a little mini-game in which you rapidly tap the key shown on the 
    screen. Do it correctly (it's not hard) and the Bot will slap itself. Do this 
    five times and the Bot will destroy itself. You can then use a portal to get 
    back to base.

    Back in the Sanctum Sanctorum, go upstairs to the Sanctuary and talk to 
    Weasel. He's cracked S.H.I.E.L.D. security and now fears for his own safety. 
    He doesn't know if he should hide in the Baxter Building or X-Mansion. Go 
    talk to Hank Pym and Charles Xavier. Return to Weasel and tell him to go 
    cower under the protection of the mutants at the X-Mansion.
    Talk to the various persons in the Sanctum again; then, use the Orb of 
    Teleportation to go to Mephisto's Realm. You arrive next to a S.H.I.E.L.D. 
    Access Point. If you go straight right, you'll find a Simulator Disc (Blade). 
    Clear the central area (for now, stay out of the side areas denoted by 
    arches). You'll notice a large pentagram with candles at the corners on the 
    raised, central platform.
    Your mission, should you choose to accept it, (and, really, you don't have 
    much choice unless you're giving up MUA for NWN2; but, then, why are you 
    reading this?) is to light the candles by visiting the five side areas and 
    solving the puzzles.
    So, without further ado...Beginning at the SAP and going clockwise around the 
    area, you have:
    "Thy way shall be lit by the flames of impure souls."
    This area is infested with constantly respawning Leapers. These nasty pests 
    will jump on your back, and then you have to rapidly tap USE to get them off. 
    Well, before shaking them off, jump into the central lava pool and throw them 
    off in there. About four or five will be enough to lower the center platform 
    and open a portal. Before going through the portal, find the Strike upgrade 
    in this area. When you USE the portal, you're transported back to the central 
    pentagram and a candle bursts into flame. One down, four to go.
    "Whilst thy name is carven in stone, thy shall be invincible."
    Destroy the four large gravestones around the are. It's ridiculously easy, 
    especially with a bouncing projectile like Cap's Shield. In one of the grave 
    sites is a Black Panther action figure. Step through the portal to light 
    pentagram candle #2.
    "Only the Eternal Torch shall renew the Flames of the Damned."
    Step into the walled area and kill all the Leapers (there are only a few). 
    Then get the Eternal Torch (and a Body upgrade) from the side alcove (press 
    USE to wield the torch) and hit the four braziers in the main area. This 
    opens the portal and you can USE it to light pentagram candle #3.
    At this point, Jean Grey makes an appearance, to help shield Nightcrawler 
    from the effects of the mutant amplifier. She just stands around doing her 
    psychic stuff; but, this will be important to the plot a bit later. 
    Continuing clockwise around the arena...
    "Whilst the Trees of Aegis live, mine servants shall never perish."
    Find the large axe and USE it to pick it up. Wielding the axe, attack the 
    trees with the glowing rings and chop them down. Then kill the flying 
    Mephisto's Pets to open a portal. USE the portal and pentagram candle #4 is 
    "Sacrifice upon the altar shall imprison thee."
    Step up on the large, round altar in the middle of the area and KO all the 
    zombie-like creatures up there. When you kill them on the altar, they are 
    imprisoned in their rings. Once they are all trapped, the portal opens and 
    you can step through to light the final candle on the pentagram.
    Step through the new portal in the center of the pentagram to get to Inferno. 
    Go across the bridge and you'll meet a Fire Giant. These guys are very weak 
    to strong melee attacks and go down pretty quickly to your tank. Jump over 
    the lava river and climb the stairs. At the top of the stairs go left and 
    then left again to reach a bluff overlooking the Fire Giant pool. You'll find 
    the Eye of the Shadow Queen. USE it to pick it up and end that side quest.
    Go back the other way past the stairs to another bluff where you can get a 
    bonus skill point. From the bluff, go across the bridge opposite and turn 
    left. Find the tree that's nearby and you'll see a Daredevil action figure 
    near the base. This is DD #5; and, if you've been good about collecting them, 
    you can now use Daredevil on your team.
    Ahead of you is a pentagram, in the midst of which is Ghost Rider, 
    unconscious. His astral energy is chained above him. Go up the stairs to your 
    left and break the chain anchor at the top. Go down the other set of stairs 
    to your right. At the bottom is a sketch book. Go up the next set of stairs 
    and break another chain anchor.
    Return to the pentagram platform and take the stairs to your left. Repeat 
    your earlier performance, breaking two chain anchors; and, you'll be back on 
    the pentagram with Ghost Rider. In order to free Ghost Rider (and continue 
    the game); choose one of your heroes to change places with GR. Have that hero 
    USE the book on the altar and make the swap. You'll automatically be 
    transported to Sepulcher.
    There's a SAP right next to you, so save your game--it's the last chance 
    you'll have to save until you've beaten Mephisto. Work your way through 
    Sepulcher; make sure you thoroughly explore all the crypts. You'll pick up a 
    Body upgrade, Focus upgrade, sketch book and Simulator Disc (Scorpion).
    You will eventually reach a fight against Blackheart. This fight can be 
    extremely easy if you know what you're doing. (And, since you're reading 
    this, true believer, you know what you're doing.) Before taking on 
    Blackheart, run around the edges of the area taking out his resurrection 
    chambers. There are six of them: they look like oddly shaped glass columns 
    and they emit an electric shock if you hit them with physical attacks. Blast 
    them with energy attacks (to avoid interference from Blackheart, take a flyer 
    around and blast them from the air).
    Now, search the area for a halberd. There are a couple laying around and they 
    glow when you get near them. USE one to pick it up and attack Blackheart with 
    it. He's quite vulnerable to them. The big problem you'll have with 
    Blackheart is his repulsion beam. If you get right in front of him, he'll 
    fling you halfway across the arena.
    If you have a hero with an attraction power (such as Spider-Woman), take 
    control of that character, use the power, then switch to the hero with the 
    halberd and beat down Blackheart. If you don't have a hero with an attraction 
    power; then, you'll have to be sneaky. Try to circle around Blackheat, 
    waiting until he turns his attention to a teammate and then run in and smack 
    him a couple of times. Use the various columns scattered about to keep cover 
    between yourself and the fiend so he can't blast you.
    Whatever you do, try not to lose any heroes. You can't get any back for the 
    remainder of this level (no SAPs and no Portal) and you've got some very big 
    fights coming your way. When Blackheart is dead, you can go up the steps 
    behind him and free either Nightcrawler or Jean Grey.
    *NOTE* You can only free one. The other is toast. Regardless of which you 
    save and which you sacrifice, you'll get a "revenge" cutscene at the end of 
    the game.
                                ***** SPOILERS *****
    If you sacrifice Kurt, his mother, Mystique, kills Xavier for letting her boy 
    die. If you sacrifice Jean, her alter ego Dark Phoenix returns and blows 
    things up out of spite.
                                ***** SPOILERS *****
    You don't get either character as playable and you don't get a "good" ending 
    either way, so choose your fave and USE the urn next to his or her cage. A 
    portal opens in between the cages. Step through into the Stygian Abyss.
    You're surrounded by hordes of demons. If you're intent on a complete game, 
    Ghost Rider's Simulator Disc is on an "island" to your left; fly over to it. 
    Ignore the constantly respawning demons and run like mad for the other end of 
    the area. You'll have to blast your way through a gate (easy); eventually 
    you'll reach a pit with a glowing portal. You can't get down there until 
    you've killed a certain number of demons, so start laying into those around 
    you until the column of light disappears. Jump into the pit to enter the 
    final battle arena.
    Your first order of business is to release the astral energy of Jean or Kurt 
    (whichever one you sacrificed earlier) by destroying the five statues in the 
    center of the arena. To do this, you'll need to force Mephisto into drawing 
    out his sword.
    Stand in the center of the pentagram and hit Mephisto with ranged attacks as 
    he approaches. If he puts up his globe shield, back off. He may use a Fear 
    effect that's a lot of fun (you get to watch your hero run around like a 
    chicken with its head off). If you get scared, switch to another hero. If you 
    can draw Mephisto in and do some damage, he'll pull out his big red sword.
    Run in close and press USE to begin the disarming process. This is a little 
    mini-game where you rapidly tap the key shown on the screen and you'll wrest 
    Mephisto's sword from him. (This does not require a Mighty character.) Run to 
    the closest statue and smack it with the sword. The sword disappears. Rinse-
    and-repeat for the other four statues.
    You've destroyed the five statues (after about a half-hour of toying with 
    Mephisto); your sacrificed X-Man is brought back to life; and, now, you get 
    to fight both Mephisto *and* the X-Man you killed earlier.
    Oh. Yeah. That was worth it.
    Mephisto can regenerate his puppet; so, don't waste time on Jean/Kurt. Lay 
    into Mephisto instead. He has all the tricks he used earlier; however, if you 
    do some damage to the X-Man, you can smack Mephisto while he's healing the 
    pawn. When Mephisto gets to 25% health, his health bar turns gray. Now is the 
    time to "kill" the X-Man. When the X-Man is "dead", he (or she) will make 
    another sacrifice and take out Mephisto for you.
    It's all good.
    Pick up the leavings and step through the portal. You can talk to Nick Fury 
    (or not); but, basically, Act II is over. Use the Orb of Teleportation to go 
    to Asgard, which, in this case, actually means Valhalla.
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ACT III ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
    The Courtyard of the Gods is your new home base. You have the normal stuff 
    here (though they have different names, such as "Riddling Flame" instead of 
    "Trivia Computer"); and, you have your choice of two missions. Do them in 
    whatever order pleases you.

    [] Black Panther action figure: Bifrost Bridge
    [] Sketch book: Bifrost Bridge
    [] Daredevil action figure: Bifrost Bridge
    [] Spider-Man's Simulator Disc: Midgard Gate
    Explore your new base. There are three large wood structures, with porches. 
    On one porch is a Strike upgrade and a grate where you can stand to summon 
    Hermod, god of speed and messengers. (Or you can chase Hermod down; he's 
    running in circles around the Courtyard. Whatever floats your boat.) 
    Actually, contrary to what Nick Fury says, you do not have to talk to Hermod 
    or Sif to begin either mission.
    Anyway...on another porch is a Body upgrade. On the third porch you'll find 
    Sif; talk to her with Thor for a little unique conversation. When you're 
    ready to open the gate to Midgard, find the portal to the Bifrost Bridge.
    Immediately to your left, on top of a stone, is a Simulator Disc (Storm). As 
    you advance over the first stone bridge, Valkyrie calls in with an optional 
    side quest. Go across the bridge to a four-way intersection. Take a left, and 
    pick up (USE) the torch next to the column. Swat the column (ATTACK) with the 
    torch to light it up. Keep the torch; you'll need to light some more fires 
    and it's an extremely effective weapon against the undead Viking warriors.
    Go back and straight through the four-way intersection until you reach a 
    Viking ship. At the right end of the ship is a Black Panther action figure. 
    Go across the ship and light two more fires (one to your right and one 
    straight ahead), then continue to the left (from the ship) and straight to a 
    fourth fire. When you light it, you see a brief cutscene of a large hammer 
    appearing on a platform.
    From the last fire, hang a left and go across to a grassy area with three 
    paths leading away. Take the center path to get the hammer you saw appearing. 
    This weapon takes out any of the Viking warriors in one blow. Use it.
    Back at the grassy area, take the right path. Go to the end, where you see a 
    raised area with a rune symbol. A bit further up the path is a large stone 
    column with the same rune. Push/pull that stone column over the raised area 
    and a weapon cache appears. In addition to assorted loot, the cache contains 
    a Daredevil action figure.
    Now go down the stairs next to the cache and look to your right. There are 
    four Viking archers over on floating platforms. Either KO them with ranged 
    attacks or send a flyer over to the platforms to bash them into submission. 
    When you've taken them all out, four runes on the main platform light up. 
    Step on all four to raise a platform that allows you to continue.
    Keep on going, passing by a large wood gear. When you reach a dead end, turn 
    around and look to the left of the stairs you just came down. There's a 
    sketch book.
    Go back up to the large wood gear and USE it; then, play the mini-game 
    (rapidly tap the key shown on screen) and the portal to Midgard Gate opens. 
    Before going through, look on the opposite side of the gear from the portal. 
    you'll see a sword in a stone; this is Dragon Fang. Hop up and USE it to 
    complete the side quest.
    Step through the portal to find yourself at the end of a long bridge. The 
    camera is fixed in the rear position so you will always move away from the 
    screen (forward). First, move toward the screen (backward, or "down") to find 
    a Simulator Disc (Spider-Man) at the end of the bridge.
    Advance along the bridge, alternately dodging fire from the dragon heads on 
    either side of the bridge and beating up Viking warriors. (Unfortunately, you 
    lost the big hammer when you left Bifrost Bridge. Can't have everything...) 
    Continue until you reach a raised wood drawbridge. USE it to lower it.
    Now you have to run down the bridge dodging fireballs coming straight at you. 
    There's no fighting involved, just dodging. The game will instruct you to 
    dodge the fireballs with MOVE + GUARD; however, there's an easier way. Get 
    right up against the edge of the bridge on either side and you can advance 
    comfortably without being hit. When a gap appears on your side of the bridge, 
    wait for a pause in the fireballs; then, run across to the other side.
    Simple. At the end is another drawbridge with a SAP in front of it. Take this 
    opportunity to save your game. Lower the drawbridge and it's time to fight 
    the Wrecking Crew.
    The easy way to handle this is to find one of the big axes that are laying on 
    the ground. Have your strongest melee character pick one up and use it to 
    smack the de-construct the Wrecking Crew. It's really rather easy. (Or, if 
    you're up for the challenge, try doing it the hard way using just your powers 
    and normal attacks. Your choice.)
    When the Wrecking Crew have been laid to rest, smash the wood blocking the 
    gate and open it up. Portal back to the Courtyard of the Gods for your next

    In the Courtyard of the Gods, a new area has opened. On the porch where Sif 
    is working out, you'll find a Focus upgrade. Talk to the guard nearby and 
    you'll be allowed entrance to Warriors Hall. Inside, turn around immediately 
    to pick up a sketch book. Go to the end of the hall and get a skill point off 
    the throne. On either side of the big fire pit are little alcoves. One 
    contains a Black Panther action figure; the other has a Simulator Disc 
    You'll also find Weasel in Warriors Hall. He's ready to break into Black 
    Widow's personal files. For that he needs her password. Go back into the 
    Courtyard and talk to Hank Pym and Black Widow. Return to Weasel and tell him 
    the password is Ivan Petrovitch.
    When you're ready for your next mission, find the exit to Asgard: World of 
    the Aesir. There are two paths before you; both converge fairly quickly. Go 
    ahead and take the left path, leaping over some floating rocks to a small 
    arena. As you step forward, walls of force appear and you're attacked by 
    Knock out all the trolls and a hammer appears. Take it and attack the nearby 
    anvil. The intervening walls of force come down. Pick up a Body upgrade to 
    the left of the anvil. Continue along the path until you reach a large area 
    with a SAP.
    There's a Battle Gate here, and a statue of Thor. You have two choices:
    1) USE the Battle Gate. You'll have to kill four trolls (throwing them into 
    the flames that spout forth from the gate works very well); then, the gate 
    will open.
    2) Go to the statue of Thor and hit it with a very high damage power. The 
    gate will blow open. (No trolls).
    Don't go through the gate yet. Continue past the statue of Thor, killing more 
    trolls, until you reach a large wood structure with a porch. Fight your way 
    around this structure until you find a weapon cache. Open the cache for a 
    skill point. Then, go down the stairs and turn to your right and search in 
    the bushes for a Daredevil action figure.
    Go back to the SAP and save your game; then head through the Battle Gate. 
    You'll quickly find Balder, held with energy chains. In order to free him; 
    you must first free Tyr and Heimdall. These gods are imprisoned beyond 
    Balder. There are two doors, one to either side of Balder. Both lead to 
    Odin's Courtyard. The right door leads to the East Wing and Heimdall; the 
    left door leads to the West Wing and Tyr. Take either door first.
    In the first room, read the inscription on the statue to get a clue on how to 
    advance. Fight your way through the rooms past the statue until you reach a 
    large room with a huge door flanked by two large axes. There are side rooms 
    up the stairs to the left and right.
    Go right and fight your way to a room with a turn-wheel and a statue. USE the 
    wheel to rotate the statue (one-quarter turn with each USE of the wheel), 
    until the statue is pointing North (north is indicated by the large arrow 
    next to the wheel). It should take two turns of the wheel.
    Go back and up the left stairs and find another wheel and statue. Turn the 
    wheel three times to make the statue face west (as shown by the arrow on the 
    floor). The huge door opens.
    Continue fighting your way deeper into Odin's Courtyard until you find the 
    exit to Grand Hall. Don't go through yet. In the room with the exit is a 
    statue of Heimdall and a wood pressure plate. Push/pull the statue on to the 
    pressure plate. If you've already completed the West Wing, the doors to the 
    central Courtyard open; otherwise, backtrack to Asgard and go through the 
    left-hand door into the West Wing.
    In the first room, read the inscription on the statue. This will give you a 
    clue as to how to get through this area. After reading the inscription, 
    defeat the Super Soldiers that storm into the room. The enemies in this area 
    are much tougher than the ones in the East Wing. When the Super Soldiers are 
    gone, take the left door to find a weapon cache.
    Continue until you get to a long hall that has a T-intersection at one end. 
    At the end of the hall opposite the T, push/pull the large block down to the 
    T and then left to a wood pressure plate. A door opposite the plate opens. Go 
    into the little room and get the Hand of Tyr from the chest.
    Continue forward until you reach a room where a huge sword forms a bridge 
    over molten metal. At the hilt end of the sword, stand on the plate and press 
    USE to feed the Hand of Tyr to Fenris. Run across the sword bridge to a room 
    that leads to The Great Forge. Don't go through yet.
    In the room is a statue of Tyr. Push/pull the statue to a wood pressure 
    plate. If you have already finished the East Wing, the doors to the central 
    Courtyard open; otherwise, go back to Asgard and go through the door to the 
    East Wing.
    Once you get into the central part of Odin's Courtyard, you can pick up some 
    goodies (Strike upgrade, Focus upgrade and a Black Panther action figure in 
    the weapon cache); and, you can more easily move between the West Wing and 
    The Great Forge and the East Wing and Grand Hall. You can free Tyr and 
    Heimdall in any order.
    First up is a mini-boss battle against both Scorpion and Lizard. Nothing you 
    haven't seen before. Use ranged attacks on Lizard and get up close and 
    personal with Scorpion. The room in which you fight them features a large pit 
    of molten metal and Tyr is hanging over it. Behind Tyr is a platform with two 
    turn wheels and the ubiquitous green X marks. Don't turn those wheels yet.
    Instead, go up the stairs to the left of Tyr and through the door. Start 
    battling your way through the mobs. In the first room, drop down to the lower 
    level on your left to pick up a Simulator Disc (Invisible Woman). There's 
    also a weapon cache down there.
    Continue around, picking up another weapon cache, until you reach a SAP. 
    Now's a good time to save. Just past the SAP is a great anvil, a forge and a 
    table with tools. First go to the table and USE and item. This nets you a 
    metal ingot. Walk over to the forge and USE it to drop the ingot in the 
    Now USE the bellows to heat the ingot, go back to the table and pick up the 
    tongs, return to the forge and get the ingot; and, take the ingot to the 
    anvil. Return to the table to pick up a hammer, then USE the anvil to forge 
    Asgard Armor! Sweet.
    Pick up your new toy and continue on. In the next hall past the anvil, look 
    for a Strike and a Body upgrade on the lower levels of the room (one on each 
    side). Beyond is a large room with another pool of hot metal and a large 
    cauldron. Kill the trolls; then, USE the rope and play the mini-game to tip 
    the cauldron of water into the metal and cool it down.
    Continue forward, until you reach a room with two of the turn wheels. Place a 
    hero on one green X and press USE, then switch to another hero and USE the 
    other wheel. The door opens and you're back in with Tyr. Now USE the two turn 
    wheels on the platform behind Tyr and he will be freed.
    In gratitude, Tyr opens a portal back to Balder; however, if you haven't 
    freed Heimdall yet, ignore the portal and go back to Odin's Courtyard and 
    over to Grand Hall. If you have freed Heimdall, use the portal to advance to 
    your boss battle.
    Take either path around to a room with a large force field and two columns 
    with buttons. The columns are currently blocked. At the top of the stairs in 
    front of the columns are two side rooms. Enter each and solve the puzzles to 
    unlock the buttons.
    In one side room you have to blast three blocks around the edges of the room. 
    This frees up smaller blocks that can be pulled out. On top of these smaller 
    blocks are runes. Match the runes on the blocks to the runs on the wood 
    pressure plates on the floor and pull the correct block onto each pressure 
    plate. When correctly positioned, the block will glow purple. You will, of 
    course, be under constant attack while doing this. Look on top of one of the 
    large stone blocks for a Focus upgrade.
    In the other side room, three trolls will make off with pieces of a rune. 
    Hunt them down and knock them out; then, stand on the empty rune circle and 
    press USE to re-form the rune.
    Once the buttons have been unlocked, use two heroes to push them and open the 
    force field to the next room. Here you find Heimdall frozen solid and in the 
    tender loving care of Rhino and Shocker. You've dealt with these guys before; 
    so, you shouldn't have much trouble.
    As you enter, they are positioned on opposite sides of Heimdall; and, if you 
    run toward one quickly and press the Call Team button repeatedly, you might 
    actually get away with only fighting one mini-boss at a time. When they are 
    defeated, search the room for a sketch book.
    On either side of the room are stairs leading to small alcoves. Enter each 
    alcove and turn the wheel. This frees up four mirrors in the main room. Go to 
    each mirror in turn as a green arrow highlights it and USE it to focus light 
    on Heimdall. When all four are shining bright, Heimdall breaks the ice.
    He now asks you to retrieve his horn. To do so, run back toward the Grand 
    Hall entrance and a new door opens. Step through, open the door beyond and 
    step through onto a bridge. Pick up Deadpool's Simulator Disc; then, fly or 
    teleport across to the horn. Pick it up and return to Heimdall.
    Heimdall opens a portal back to Asgard; but, only use it if you've already 
    freed Tyr. If you haven't taken care of Tyr yet, go back to Odin's Courtyard 
    and head over to The Great Forge. Otherwise, enter the portal and prepare for 
    In order to free Balder, you first have to defeat Enchantress and 
    Executioner. Enchantress can heal Executioner, so don't waste time on the big 
    lug. Concentrate on Enchantress and try to keep your distance so she can't 
    charm you. If you can avoid Executioner's big axe swings and get rid of 
    Enchantress, you shouldn't have much trouble with meathead.
    When both Masters of Evil are down, Balder is free and takes off. Use the big 
    doors right behind him to return to the Courtyard of the Gods. Make for 
    Warriors Hall and find Weasel. You should get an automatic cutscene that 
    wraps up the Black Widow is a traitor subplot. If you don't get the automatic 
    scene, wander around until it starts.
    Alright! That's it. Now on to Niffleheim and a date with some Frost Giants.
    Won't that be fun?

    The well leading to Niffleheim is now marked on your map of the Courtyard of 
    the Gods. As soon as you arrive on the snowy Shore of Corpses (lovely spot 
    for a vacation, what?), you'll have a chat with Volla, who wants you to find 
    her ring. From your opening position, if you go forward and then make a 180 
    turn to the left, you'll find a Strike upgrade.
    After crossing over the little frozen stream next to the Strike upgrade, go 
    all the way left to find a sketch book. Keep going, making sure to explore 
    the area thoroughly. There's a Focus upgrade on a little "island" out on the 
    corner of one area. Finally, you reach a little cutscene where Ulik and Kurse 
    are gloating over stealing Volla's ring; unfortunately, then can't get to it 
    because they locked it in a chest and threw away the key.
    Oh yeah. Smart ones, these guys.
    Take out Kursk first, he's the easiest. Ulik is much tougher. Essentially, 
    he's only going to go down to elemental (ice, fire, lightning) damage. He's 
    highly resistant to physical and energy attacks. So, hopefully, you've got 
    someone like Thor or Storm or Human Torch or Iceman...Well, you get the idea. 
    If you lack one of these elemental-damage heroes, you're in for a long, long 
    When you've finally defeated both goons, continue on until you reach a cabin 
    with a fire out front. Step near the fire and press USE to search the pit and 
    find the key. Run back to the chest and open it to get Volla's ring. She 
    appears and tells you to keep the ring and, oh yeah, you're going to die 
    Return to the cabin and go up the little slope beside it. Look to your right 
    to pick up a Simulator Disc (Shocker), then to your left to find a SAP. Look 
    up on top of the cabin for a Daredevil action figure. Just beyond the SAP is 
    the entrance to Battleground.
    As you enter Battleground, you'll come under fire from a catapult. Avoid the 
    red circles that appear on the ground, and you'll be fine. Along the way, you 
    can light some Watch Fire's (just stand next to the column and press USE). 
    These will help direct catapult fire away from you (unless you continue 
    standing next to the Watch Fire). A short distance ahead, the path forks. The 
    shortest route is to the right. Have a Mighty character push the boulder out 
    of the way.
    Oh no! What's that! You just covered up a Body upgrade. Never fear, true 
    believer; destroy the small rocks against which the boulder is resting. Step 
    in behind the boulder and, even though you can't see the icon, the game will 
    let you pick up the Body upgrade. All's well.
    Pretty soon, the path will fork again. This time the shortest route is to the 
    left; however, you first have to kill the catapult crew and then use the 
    catapult to destroy the boulders that are in your way. As you pass by the 
    broken boulders, pick up a Body upgrade from the path. (If you went the long 
    way around, you can circle back and get the Body upgrade without going 
    through the boulders.)
    Finally, you have reached the entrance to Ymir's Domain. Turn around 
    immediately and pick up a sketch book. Advance down the path until you are 
    interrupted by Ymir. This fight plays out very simply, though you may have 
    trouble actually performing all the steps.
    Wait for a Frost Giant to pop up out of the ice and destroy it as quickly as 
    possible. Grab the spear is drops (stand near and press USE) and then wait 
    for Ymir to slam his club to the ground. Jump out of the way as the club 
    comes down, then jump toward it. You'll land on top of it and the scene will 
    Play the mini-game by pressing each key as it is shown on screen--you have 
    approximately two seconds to press each key, or you fail the minigame. After 
    four keystrokes, you'll be on the back of Ymir's neck; rapidly tap the key 
    shown on screen (most likely it will be SMASH) and your character will drive 
    the spear into Ymir's neck; and, then be thrown to the ground.
    Repeat this three times (four total mini-games) and Ymir is down. All the 
    while, you'll need to avoid Ymir's club strikes; hopefully, you'll have some 
    healing power on your team as health orbs are few and far between.
    And, after all that, Ymir isn't even the big boss battle for this Act! Go on 
    pass, Ymir, picking up a sketch book as you go. Enter Spire's Ascent. Fight 
    your way up the slope, dealing with a mix of Dark Elves and Frost Giants. At 
    the end of the first bridge, look down and to your left to see a Simulator 
    Disc (Spider-Woman). You have to use a flyer to get down there. (A non-flyer 
    can jump down; but, can't jump back up.)
    When you reach the third bridge, look to your right to see a Strike upgrade. 
    Just past the third bridge, keep an eye out to your left for a Focus upgrade. 
    Next up is a SAP; trust me, save your game. Just beyond is a fight with Baron 
    Mordo and Ultron. This is, really, not that difficult. Neither is resistant 
    to anything, and should go down easily enough to the combined powers of your 
    After, pick the Fourth Spear (if you retrieved Volla's ring in the first 
    area, it will be glowing) and dispel Loki's shield. Enter Raven's Spire and a 
    fight with Loki.
    This fight is mostly one of patience and endurance. Loki will summon 
    creatures (Frost Giants and wolves) and he's got a few tricks of his own; 
    but, he's not resistant to your powers, so use them liberally. Just keep at 
    him, take out his minions as necessary, and you'll beat him readily enough. 
    You can then use the portal to return to Warriors Hall.
    In Warriors Hall, go through each of the four portals along the side of the 
    room. In each one is a simple puzzle that needs to be solved (no enemies) to 
    pick up a sword. The puzzles are (in no particular order):
    * Open three doors using pressure plates. Stand your hero on a pressure 
    plate, switch to another hero, stand that hero on a plate, switch to a third 
    hero and stand that hero on a plate; then, switch to your fourth hero and go 
    get the sword.
    * A "maze" of floor tiles. Some tiles have a runic picture of Odin on them, 
    the others have a complicated floral rune. Walk on the Odin picture tiles to 
    safely get the sword.
    * A dancing sword. Go through any of the other portals in the room to force 
    the sword to stay still so you can pick it up.
    * A snowy climb up some cliffs. You can't fly or double jump. Go to your 
    right, climb up to the first level and dodge the blasts coming from the cliff 
    face. The blasts won't hurt you; but, they will knock you off and you have to 
    start again. The sword is at the end of the third level.
    Once all four swords are around the Destroyer Armor, USE any sword to unlock 
    the armor and start the (predictable) fight against Loki, again. Don't try to 
    attack the Destroyer Armor or the trolls; run for the nearest side portal and 
    go through it. Inside, kill the trolls and another portal opens. Jump through 
    and you're back in Warriors Hall.
    Go through the next side portal and the next, repeating the pattern. When you 
    jump through the fourth side portal, you find Loki's frozen form. It's not 
    touchable; however, you can "damage" the Destroyer Armor. Get rid of the 
    trolls and attack the Armor. It's health meter won't decrease, but you'll see 
    a damage meter at the bottom of the screen. When that gets full, the Armor 
    lets loose with an energy burst. If you're in the room with Loki's body, the 
    burst destroys his shell and knocks him out. Mission complete. Step through 
    the portal...

    After all the cutscenes, you find yourself in the Royal Library of Attilan, 
    home of the Inhumans. This is your base for Act IV. You'll find the normal 
    computers; as well as Strike, Body and Focus upgrades around the outer rim of 
    the room. Next to the SAP is a door to the Royal Court. Chat with the people 
    you find here. To the right of the entrance, near the outer wall, is a sketch 
    If you like, return to the Library and talk to Hank Pym, Nick Fury and Black 
    Widow (in that order) and then return to Crystal with news that Medusa is at 
    Muir Island. You get exactly zilch and it's not even an official objective. 
    But, there you go...
    When you're ready to take on the Shi'ar, talk to the big dog. He teleports 
    you to the Fighter Bay of a Shi'ar warship; and, of course, you knew it 
    wasn't going to be simple. Lilandra has been deposed by her sister, 
    Deathbird, and all the Shi'ar are going to be hostile.
    During your fight in the Fighter Bay, Corsair (Cyclops' father) joins you. 
    There's a SAP right next to your starting point; which, all things 
    considered, is kind of useless since you just left home base. Anyway...
    Fight your way through the Bay. You'll reach some crates that have to be 
    pulled out of the way. The only one you have to move is the center crate. 
    Once you go through the crates, turn and look to your left and pick up a 
    sketch book. At the top of the stairs, go right--the left path will be 
    blocked. At the top of the stairs, go through the room; then, down two 
    flights of stairs to the bottom of the Bay. Run straight across the Bay and 
    up two more flights of stairs and into another room. There's a Simulator Disc 
    (Iceman) here.
    Back into the Bay, continue fighting your way to the end. As you near the 
    exit, a Shi'ar warrior engages two force fields across your path and opens up 
    two force fields that lead into space. You'll have to fight the sucking power 
    of the open bays and make it to the console the warrior used. As you near it, 
    you'll automatically get a cutscene that shows your hero closing the open 
    The force fields across the exit remain in place. To either side of the exit 
    are small doors, one leading to the Port Crew Quarters and one leading to the 
    Starboard Crew Quarters. Enter each one, in turn (either one first), kill the 
    soldiers and USE the Fighter Pit Controls to lower the force fields across 
    the exit. In the Starboard Quarters is a Strike upgrade.
    Enter the Shi'ar Power Core (Corsair forsakes you at this point) and you'll 
    quickly come upon a door that's just been sealed. The key cards you need to 
    open the door are taken by two guards who run in opposite directions. Take 
    off after them. When you knock them out, you'll automatically get a key card. 
    When you go after the guard to the left, look for a Focus upgrade behind a 
    glass panel in the room right before the guard. When following the guard that 
    goes right, look for a Simulator Disc (Ultron).
    Once you have both key cards, stand one hero in front of one console and 
    switch to another hero and USE both consoles at the same time. Head through 
    the door, save at the SAP, go across the catwalk and USE the elevator to drop 
    down to the main hyperdrive.
    You now get to fight Gladiator. When the fight starts, ignore Gladiator and 
    run to the four corners of the platform and USE the Energy Transfer Consoles. 
    Using a flyer to quickly go from console to console works better than a 
    ground-based hero. When all four consoles are active, Gladiator becomes 
    vulnerable and you can beat on him a little. Eventually, he'll the transfers 
    will turn off and Gladiator will be invincible again.
    Repeat the previous pattern. It takes at least two, and possible three, trips 
    around the circuit before Gladiator is knocked out and the hyperdrive core is 
    destroyed. Go over the bridge opposite where you came in. At the end of the 
    bridge, look left and pick up a Focus upgrade. Go through a short hall and 
    into a small room. Defeat the enemies; then, look for a sketch book on the 
    left wall. Continue on to the Outer Hull.
    The camera now becomes fixed in an overhead position and cannot be rotated 
    (though you can zoom a little bit), which makes some of this level a bit 
    tricky. Your first task is to defeat Starbolt and Warstar. Just beyond them, 
    walk down into a recessed area and destroy the marked console. Send a flyer 
    up and to the left to get a Strike upgrade.
    Continue, going up the ramps to find three of the guns. Destroy them, then 
    backtrack a little and find the ramps that lead to the area above the guns. 
    (Or just send a flyer straight up.) Look down through the glass floor and 
    you'll see a Simulator Disc (Ulik). Break the glass (jump + SMASH) and go 
    down to get it.
    Just past the first set of guns is the satellite communications array. Stand 
    next to it and play the little mini-game to manually align the dish. Up next 
    are three more guns. Take them out, then follow the path. You'll go down, 
    then right, then up. Look for a little ledge with a Shi'ar Tracker along the 
    "top" wall. Jump up to it and continue inside to the second "room" and you'll 
    find a Daredevil action figure in the top left corner.
    Back on the main path, you'll soon come to the last gun turret. Take it out; 
    then, find the hatch to the Observation Deck. There's a SAP just inside the 
    door, and, just beyond, a fight against Hussar and Neutron, members of the 
    Shi'ar Imperial Guard. These dual-mini-boss fights should be old hat by now; 
    and, you should have plenty of momentum so you can lead with extreme attacks.
    And, just past the two lackeys is Miss High-and-Mighty herself, Deathbird. In 
    one sense, this is a standard beat-em-up fight. However, there are a few 
    wrinkles. The first thing you'll notice is Deathbird likes to fly, which 
    means you're going to have to rely almost exclusively on ranged attacks. You 
    may occasionally catch her on the ground, but you won't be able to get many 
    hits in before she takes off again.
    Second, Deathbird will sometimes grab your hero and fly up in the air. At 
    this point you have to play a little mini-game, pressing keys as they show on 
    screen, in order to fight out of her grip. Fail the mini-game and you get 
    smashed on the ground. That's gotta hurt.
    Third, when Deathbird reaches 50% health, she brings in a crystal that makes 
    her invulnerable. When this happens, run over and hit the crystal (you don't 
    have to use a power or a SMASH attack, just a normal hit will do). This makes 
    Deathbird temporarily vulnerable again and you can go about your business of 
    hitting her with everything you've got.
    After the fight, search the room for a Body upgrade, then follow Deathbird 
    through the portal she opened in the center of the room. You're now in the 
    Science Section; and, walking forward a bit triggers a cutscene where you see 
    Deathbird set off a self-destruct sequence. You now have one minute to de-
    activate the sequence or you are all going to be reduced to your component 
    Yeah. One minute. 1:00. 60 seconds.
    Follow your map. You'll see a bunch of red X marks on your map. Some of these 
    mark power nodes. Destroying a power node adds 30 seconds to your timer and 
    there are four nodes. Ignore the soldiers and anything else and just go get 
    the power nodes. Run left to get to the first node. Destroy it, then follow 
    the path around (there's only ever one way you can go) destroying each node 
    you find.
    When you reach the third node, you'll also find Lilandra in a torture 
    chamber. You have a choice to make. If you want to save Lilandra, you have to 
    do it now. If you've been moving quickly enough, you have enough time. 
    Destroy the node in this room; then, destroy the console next to Lilandra 
    (it's got a *lot* of hit points, so use massive damage powers). If you have 
    at least 30 seconds left, you have enough time. Run to the next room and 
    destroy the fourth node.
    You then enter the main reactor room and you have to destroy the four laser 
    emitters. These go down pretty quickly, so there won't be a problem unless 
    you arrive here with only, like, 20 seconds remaining.
    Now, go back and clean up. Return the way you came to the starting point. 
    From that entrance from the Observation Deck, look to your right to pick up a 
    skill point. Now go back left, the way you went when you were playing beat-
    the-clock. When you reach the room with the mesh bridges, you'll notice 
    there's a shortcut back to the torture chamber. Don't go that way.
    Continue just as you did the first time. In the room with the second power 
    node, fly up to the platform in the far corner and you'll earn a Black 
    Panther action figure. Now go on past the reactor room, to the room with the 
    M'Kraan Crystal. USE the console to take down the force field, then go down 
    into the room and find the Focus upgrade on the far side. Then, hit the 
    crystal to get a shard of it and open the portal back to the Royal Library of

    Disc (Piledriver). In the next room, turn left and you'll see a Black Panther 
    action figure. Continue up some stairs, through a room and then down into a 
    large area where there's another Magnetic Shield Generator.
    As you come down the stairs, go right and around the corner to pick up a 
    Focus upgrade. Go back the other way and around the corner to get a Body 
    upgrade. Continue across the large platform and enter Aeronautics.
    You'll meet Super Skrull, Paibok and the Skrull Empress. The Empress offers 
    you a deal: open the hangar doors so she can escape and she'll give you the 
    key to defeat Galactus. Seems like a bargain, especially since she offers you 
    the services of either Paibok or Super Skrull. (Pick either one, it doesn't 
    matter which.)
    Go up the only accessible stairs in the hangar and begin fighting your way 
    through a horde of Galactus Punishers and Ultron Warriors. The path is 
    winding, but there's only ever one way to go, so you shouldn't get lost. Make 
    sure you blow up the walls along the way, at one point, shortly before reach 
    the SAP, you'll find a Focus upgrade.
    Continue until you reach the hangar control room and USE the console to open 
    the hangar doors. Go out the door on your right and pick up a sketch book, 
    then the door on the left and get a Strike upgrade. Now go down into the 
    hangar and talk to the Empress.
    You know what they say...If it's too good to be true...
    Now you've got to fight Paibok and Super Skrull, which is just like every 
    other mini-boss fight you've been through to this point. When they are down, 
    exit by way of the hangar doors to reach Cityscape.
    This is another side-scrolling level, though moving from right to left 
    instead of left to right. You'll be keeping pace with Galactus his own bad 
    self; and, occasionally have to dodge bombs from Skrull pilots with bad aim 
    (avoid the red circles).
    After the first left turn, go all the way to the edge of the walkway to pick 
    up a Simulator Disc (Ms. Marvel). Continue on until you see a drill used by 
    Galactus to suck the life out of the planet. You can (and it's optional) 
    destroy the drill (and one other) as part of a side quest. Go ahead and use a 
    power on the part of the drill marked with a blue X. Just past the drill is a 
    sketch book to your heros' right (away from the screen) in a little side 
    When you get down to a T-intersection, move toward the camera and pick up a 
    Body upgrade. Then continue away from the screen and then left. Keep going 
    left until you reach a large fire at broken portion of the walkway. There's a 
    Strike upgrade partially hidden behind the fire. Now you can backtrack a 
    little and move "down" (toward the screen).
    Keep going until you have your first conversation with Galactus. He'll 
    unleash a horde of Punishers on you. Take care of them, then look for a 
    Simulator Disc (Human Torch). If you go to the T-intersection just past the 
    talk with Galactus, it is to your heros' left (down or toward the screen). 
    Just past this point is the entrance to the Heights of Progress.
    First up you have to get up on a ledge where you'll find a Simulator Disc 
    (Dragonman) and a SAP. If you want to do it the "right" way, there's a block 
    nearby you can push/pull into position so you can jump up to the ledge. Or, 
    just have a flyer go up and the rest of the team will automagically appear. 
    Save your game and continue.
    Past the SAP, you'll turn right and then left. Right after the left turn, 
    there are little rooms off to each side. The left-hand room has a skill 
    point. Straight ahead lies a fight against Titannus.
    Titannus is tough. The only thing in your favor is he frequently ignores you 
    as he is intent on busting up the lab where you're fighting. Like most 
    monsters, Titannus mostly uses devastating, short-range powers. If you stay 
    back and pepper him from range, you should do OK. Beware of the science 
    experiments that jump out at you. If one gets on your back, rapidly tap USE 
    to get it off.
    When Titannus is finished, move into the next room, where you'll find two 
    control panels with the green X marks in front of them. Move one hero on a 
    green X and move another hero on the other green X and press USE. The two 
    cells in front of you will open. In the right-hand cell is a Daredevil action 
    figure. In the left-hand cell is a scientist who will give your player-
    controlled hero a free level-up.
    Sweet! Go past the cells and through the door...
    "Hello. My name is Galactus and I eat planets."
    "Hi, Galactus!"
    First up: run away! Yes, that's right, flee Galactus along a walkway in a 
    side-scrolling level. Ignore the beasties that bump in the night around you 
    and just keep moving. At one point, Galactus knocks a tower down in front of 
    you. Look immediately to your heros' left (away from the screen) for another 
    tower that forms a ramp to an upper walkway. Use that to keep moving.
    Once you've successfully executed your tactical re-alignment, you'll meet 
    Silver Surfer and he'll offer you a way of getting rid of Galactus. Or, at 
    least, knocking him unconscious. He also revives any of your team that has 
    fallen, so if you reach this spot with only one hero, you're still 
    green...super green, even.
    When the fight starts, run left and USE the polarity control, then move to 
    the center of the area and USE another polarity control and then go right and 
    USE a third polarity control. You have to do this while dodging Punishers and 
    avoiding Galactus himself, who occasionally likes to pick you up and squeeze 
    you--if that happens, rapidly tap the key shown on the screen to break free.
    Once all three polarity controls have been activated, Galactus releases a 
    large energy burst. Before that happens, Silver Surfer tells you his is going 
    to distract Galactus. Now you get to play the mini-game. As Silver Surfer 
    flies around Galactus, press the keys shown on the screen. Do this 
    successfully and Galactus will hit himself with his energy burst and knock 
    off one-third of his health.
    Then, you get to do the whole thing all over again (twice more, in fact!) USE 
    the three polarity controls, play the mini-game with Silver Surfer. Etc. 
    After the third successful mini-game, Galactus blows himself up. Hooray for 
    you! Take the portal back to Attilan. Save your game, then talk to Lockjaw 
    and ask to be sent back to Earth.

    All is not well on Earth. First, go around to the marked spots on your map 
    and activate the power consoles. Then, a bunch of Doom-created Iron Men swoop 
    into Stark Tower and kidnap Nick Fury. Go into Iron Man Lab and join Fury in 
    an old-fashioned beat down of about a hundred Iron Men. (They're pushovers. 
    Really.) After you've disposed of a bunch of them, Hank Pym finally gets his 
    EMP generator working and makes Stark Tower save again.
    Return to Stark's office and explore a bit. There are upgrades for each of 
    your stats (Body, Strike and Focus) and a sketch book on the table next to 
    Black Widow. You can also play the trivia game, review your game stats and 
    run simulator missions.
    When you're ready for the final mission, talk to Nick Fury. He'll fly you to 
    Castle Doom. The first area has no enemies, so relax a little and enjoy the 
    view. As you advance through the main room, a stone staircase will appear 
    before you. Go ahead and climb the stairs, there's nothing to collect in this 
    Go right along the balcony until a stone bridge appears over to the other 
    side. Cross over and go through the next room. In the room beyond, a Y-shaped 
    stone walkway rises out of the floor. Look to the right and left and you'll 
    see statues of knights. Destroy the statues with a ranged attack and treasure 
    chests appear on the floor. Go down and open the chests and you'll get a 
    Daredevil action figure and a skill point.
    Continue until you enter the Hall of Many Doors. Ignore the doors on the 
    north and south sides of the room (the camera is stuck in an overhead 
    perspective). Find the spot on the left side of the room where you get the 
    prompt to Enter Door. Press USE to get to the far side of the Hall.
    Go down the stairs in the next room and jump into the pit. You'll find 
    yourself in a large room with doors to either side and a statue of doom ahead 
    of you. Directly to your left is a sketch book. You might notice on your map 
    a SAP icon; however, you can't access this point yet. Around the statue of 
    Doom are four upgrades each for Body, Strike and Focus. Those, too, are 
    Stand near the base of the Doom statue and press USE to examine it and update 
    your objectives. Now go through the door along the right side of the room and 
    enter Doom's Lair. Rest time is over; you'll be facing a lot of enemies from 
    now on. The first room is a two-level library. If you jump down into the 
    center, there are Energy and Health Stations; however, you'll need a flyer to 
    get back up (the rest of the team with auto-magically follow).
    Go past the library and down the hall to a second library. At the second door 
    on the left, go into the side room and USE the big bookcase over in the 
    corner. This will open a passage to a secret room containing a weapon cache. 
    Open the cache to gain a Black Panther action figure. Go back into the 
    library and go over to the first door on the right. Inside this room is a 
    skill point.
    In the far corner of the library is another large bookcase. USE it to open a 
    secret passage. Work your way through a couple of rooms, making sure you pick 
    up the sketch book that's in the second room. You'll also pass a SAP as you 
    go. You may notice that you can't Extract from these access points. You're 
    stuck in this mission until you complete it (you can Change and Revive Team 
    if you need to do so; and, of course, you can save your game).
    Finally, you'll reach a large room and have your first encounter with Dark 
    versions of Marvel Super Heroes. In this case, it's Captain America and 
    Colossus. These two are as tough as you would expect them to be. Ranged 
    energy attacks work pretty well on Cap, while Colossus takes a little more 
    damage from elemental attacks. If you have enough momentum built up, now 
    would be a good time to use extreme powers.
    Once both dark heroes are out, head up the stairs and pick up Doom's 
    gauntlets. When you do, the floor falls from beneath your feet and you find 
    yourself in Doom's Dimension. Go up the stairs and enter the Stairwell. This 
    is a short, side-scrolling area that requires you to fight your way up some 
    stairs. When you reach the top, pass by the door leading to the Dimensional 
    Cavern and use the SAP to save your game.
    Enter the Cavern and have a talk with Dark Cyclops and Dark Psylocke. 
    Fortunately, you do not have to face these two together. Cyclops takes off 
    and you can work on Psylocke. If at any point you fall off the edge of the 
    platforms, you find out just where Cyclops went. He's on the *bottom* of the 
    platform and you can fight him down here (upside down, of course--have fun 
    with that...)
    You can work over Psylocke and Cyclops in any way you want. Switch back-and-
    forth, take one out then the other, whatever. Cyclops is the more dangerous 
    as his optic beam has a stunning effect that is rather nasty. Only when both 
    dark heroes are defeated will the way to advance be open. This takes you to 
    the Hall of Arms, which is a small area that basically contains Doom's armor. 
    Look to your left as you enter and pick up the sketch book.
    Pick up Doom's armor and go through the door behind it. This leads to Doom's 
    Lab. Fight your way across the large room and up the center stairs on the far 
    side. You'll take a left out of this room; go straight across the hall and 
    pick up the last sketch book in the game from the side room. Now, follow the 
    hall all the way around to another side room and pick up the Ultimate 
    Nullifier. It's broken, but it makes a difference in your end game.
    Go back along the hall to the center door and along the hall. This hall has 
    three fluctuating beam barriers similar to the chompers you experienced in 
    the fake Castle Doom in Arcade's level. As before, it helps to have a party-
    wide regeneration power here (such as the Spider-Woman's). Dodge the beams 
    and open the door at the far end of the hall.
    There's a SAP right here to save your progress. Beyond is a tricky walk 
    across a rolling path. You *cannot* just fly across and hope your non-flying 
    teammates will auto-magically follow you. If you only have one non-flying 
    hero, take him or her across yourself and the flyers will follow on their 
    own. If you have more than one non-flying hero, you will have to experiment 
    with ways to get them across (or get a friend or sibling to help you out). 
    (Note that Spider-Man counts as a flyer for these purposes, since he can web-
    swing across.)
    Beyond the rollers is another hall with the fluctuating beams. When you reach 
    the end of that, you'll be in a large room with Odin trapped in a machine. 
    Try to break the machine and you'll get a message that you need a Doom-
    created weapon to break it. Walk around the machine and you'll meet Dark Thor 
    and Dark Spider-Man.
    These two will be tough, not only because they're dangerous on their own; 
    but, they will be helped by Doombots. Try to avoid using your extreme powers 
    (for reasons soon to be apparent). Take out Spider-Man first, if you can, his 
    web trap is actually worse than Thor's ability to stun. As soon as the two 
    dark heroes are defeated, an army of Doombots runs into the room.
    *Now* is the time to use your extreme powers. Let 'em have it. Then, find the 
    Dark Thor's hammer on the ground and pick it up (USE it) and attack the 
    machine holding Odin. This frees him and gives you a better ending for the 
    game. Now, pick up Doom's mask from the pedestal behind where Dark Thor and 
    Spider-Man appeared. Go up the stairs and return to Castle Doom.
    You're back in the room where you started. The glass cases protecting the 
    Body, Focus and Strike upgrades break, so boost all your heroes. The SAP is 
    uncovered and, hey!, you can Extract from this one. Finally, a staircase 
    rises around the statue of Doom and a portal to the throne room appears. Step 
    through and prepare for the final battle.
    First up, you get to fight the Dark versions of the Fantastic Four. This 
    won't be an easy fight. Try to separate them. One tactic is to get up on one 
    of the small balconies around the corners of the room. The FF will get 
    tangled up trying to come up the stairs and you can more easily pick them 
    When the Dark FF are defeated, Doom rises up and four green energy beams 
    shoot out from him. Find the points where those beams are connecting to 
    machines (they're marked on your map with a red X) and attack the machines. 
    As you do so, a dark FF hero comes out. Try to only do one machine at a time. 
    (Bouncing powers like Iron Man's Unibeam or Cap's Thrown Shield can get you 
    in trouble.)
    After all four machines have been destroyed and all the dark FF heroes have 
    been defeated (again), walk under where Doom is floating in the air. Play the 
    little mini-game (rapidly tap the key shown on screen) and you'll touch Doom 
    and steal some of his power.
    Now, the real fight begins. Doom is vulnerable, but not easy. In addition, 
    the Dark FF heroes will keep respawning. Fortunately, this time the FF are 
    pushovers and you can beat them easily to collect health and energy orbs. 
    Doom's main defense is he keeps knocking you away. It will be very, very 
    difficult to get close enough to use any melee attacks or powers. You'll have 
    to rely almost exclusively on ranged attacks and Doom dodges these very well.
    The fight is mainly one of endurance and patience. There's no trick to it; 
    just keep plugging away. Remember to turn and attack the dark FF heroes to 
    keep your energy and health up and to build momentum so you can use extreme 
    powers. The fight will take a while, and you may lose a hero (or two or 
    three); but, keep at it. When you finally defeat Doom...
    Well, that's it! You've won the game. You'll get a nice, FMV ending sequence; 
    and, then, the game will go through and show you the results of the actions 
    you took (or didn't take) during the game. All those optional objectives you 
    fulfilled have consequences. Enjoy the ending sequence, then, play the game 
    again on hard mode! Or use a different team. (Nick Fury is now available as a 
    playable character.)
