*********************This Guide is Not Spoiler Free****************************



First off this has to be my favorite Xbox 360 game thus far. It was the first 
game I earned 1000 gamer points in. I personally love the idea of achievement
points. I have not purchased or rented a game for achievements but they have 
added a lot of hours of game play to the games I get. Previously I would play
through a games story mode on Normal, possibly Hard, and play on-line a little
if available. Now I keep coming back to the games I enjoy trying to unlock 
some more points. The games I really enjoy I want to get all the achievement
points. Hopefully this guide will aid you in your quest for a perfect 1000 
(now 1250) in Ultimate Alliance.

3. Defeating Super Villains
===============================================================================

These achievements are not very difficult at all. Basically if you play through
story mode solo or co-op these achievements are yours. The bosses are fairly
simple to beat without a strategy going into battle, with a strategy they will
be helpless.

A. Dragon Slayer                                                       [DGS]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Defeat Fin Fang Foom (15)

Fin Fang Foom is the first boss at the end of the Helicarrier mission. He
stands at the end of the roof of the Helicarrier. There will be soldiers in
the fore ground that can be primarily ignored (except for providing health 
and energy orbs). Focus on using ranged attacks on the dragon. Once his health
diminshes enough he will fly away. Run up to the turrett and fire until you hit
Fin Fang flying over head. When Foom returns to the deck he will attack so exit
the gun and hopefully fly back toward the far end of the Helicarrier. His 
attacks are easily avoided from a distance. As long as you are not too close he
can not melee you. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B. Blue Screen of Death                                                [BSD]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Defeat M.O.D.O.K. (15)

M.O.D.O.K. is waiting at the end of the Omega Base. Upon facing MODOK you will
have to answer a series of questions. If you get them right you receive no 
damage before the battle if you get them wrong MODOK still doesn't have a 
chance. Each correct answer moves your team closer each incorrect answer gives
them a zap. Once you have answered enough questions correctly or incorrectly
its time to face M.O.D.O.K. He does not have any really dangerous abilities.
This killing machine stay at the top of the stairs and has a laser beam attack
and a radial attack. Neither is particularly dangerous. Having a couple team
members with Xtremes saved up makes the battle quite easy. You can pretty much
ignore the AIM soldiers and focus on attacking M.O.D.O.K. with your favorite
powers. A combination of ranged and melee attacks will suffice here. Attack 
with the melee character. If and when they are low on health step back and 
unleash some ranged fury.

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

Tigershark and Attuma were defeated (15)

Tigershark and Attuma are fairly formidable if only because of the 
environmental advantage they possess. Both of these enemies are very adept at
swimming. They are quick. Each can dart around and attack with ease. The heroes
however are not as good at swimming. Ranged attacks work very well against 
these two. Using a strong projectile to hit them while avoiding their attacks
is a good strategy. If you do not have a character on your team with good
ranged abilities (shame on you!), use the consoles on each side of the map.
Activating the computers will create a whirlpool like event in the corners of
the map. This will allow the heroes and the villains to meet toe to toe, which
is good for you and bad for them. A combination of a web shield and a leveled
up web warrior absolutely destroys these two fishys.

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

The Mighty Kraken was defeated (15)

The first thing you should notice about Kraken is that his health bar at the
top of the screen is purple. This indicates that he is impervious to your 
attacks. Enemies with purple energy bars have a trick to beating them. Figure
out the trick and defeat the evil doer. The trick here is to defeat the
minions near Kraken. Once they are gone he will destroy a column. Enter the 
column for a button pressing sequence and make the column topple onto Kraken.
Repeat this process for each column and get 15 achievement points. Kraken
does have a few attacks in his arsenal, but they should not provide much of
an obstacle. He will smash the ground in front of him. This acts as a radial
attack. His other primary weapon is a ranged black liquid. Both attacks can
be avoided simply by standing behind one of the columns until the enemies
are defeated and he breaks open the column.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E. Defeated Grey Gargoyle                                              [DGG]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Grey Gargoyle was defeated (15)

Grey Gargoyle will jump and crash to the ground for a radial attack. His other
primary attacks are melee which may temporarily turn your hero into stone. If
this happens just switch to another character to continue the attack. Shaolin
Healers will appear from time to time to regenerate Gargoyle's health. Take 
them out so they do not hinder your progress. A strong ranged character can 
stand in the hall before Grey Gargoyle's room and unleash a lot of damage 
without much danger. He never followed anyone into this hall.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
F. Mandarin's Downfall                                                 [MDF]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The evil Mandarin was crushed by the forces of good (45)

This is a multi-faceted battle. Initially, it is your team versus Mandarin 
only. Attack him as you would any other super villain. His attacks primarily
consist of a tornado/wind attack, a fire ranged attack, and an attack that can
freeze your hero. Once enough of Mandarin's health is depleted he will run 
away and reveal some exploding spiders you must deal with. Use your ranged 
team members to take out a couple spiders before they get too close. Once these
few spiders are gone Mandarin reveals yet another enemy to fend off. This 
form of Ultimo does not really do much damage but is a major annoyance. Now
that all his tricks are revealed, its time to go after Mandarin. In order to 
reach Mandarin you must use one of the yellow teleporters on the ground. The 
problem is each time you enter the teleportor the Ultimo grabs you and takes
you out of Mandarin's room. Killing the bot won't help because another one 
instantly spawns. The key to getting at Mandarin is to have one of the spiders
follow you across the teleporter. The spider will enter Mandarin's room and
Ultimo will grab the spider and explode. Once Ultimo explodes your team can 
enter Mandarin's room and attack. He will then go to another room so you will
have to repeat the process. Basically, I would just stand behind one of the 
teleporters at an angle and the spiders would run at me across the teleporter.
After performing the spider trick a total of 3 times, Mandarin will return to 
the main floor so the heroes can finish him off.

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

Arcade was defeated (15)

Arcade is another boss who is pointless to attack. You have to figure out the 
simple puzzle involved in order to defeat him. There are 4 hidden compartments
in the floor. When a hero stands one of the trap doors, they fall and are 
shuttled to a cannon. The cannon fires the hero toward the top of Arcade's 
head. If Arcade is near the center of the room you will land on him for a 
button pressing sequence (just repeatedly tap the button). If he is not near
the center you fall to the ground. Land on his head 4 times to defeat this
sinister enemy. Arcade has a ranged laser attack and a radial stomp that will
impede your progress to the trap doors. I have found Spider-Man to be a very
good hero to control during this battle. His web swinging ability works 
well to avoid Arcade's attacks and manuever to each of the trap doors quickly.

H. Son of a Devil                                                      [SDV]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Blackheart was defeated (15)

Before engaging in battle with Blackheart, survey the area for six glass 
structures. Destroy each of these structures to give your team an advantage.
If any of the six remain and you defeat Blackheart he will just regenerate. 
The structures will emit an energy blast if you get to close, so use ranged
attacks to destroy them. Blackheart's two main attacks are a radial ground 
smash and a ranged energy beam, both of which knock your characters back and
down. Once his regenerators are destroyed its much easier to defeat Blackheart.
You will only have to kill him once.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I. Mephisto's Defeat                                                   [MPD]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Mephisto was struck down (45)

The fight against Mephisto is multi-leveled. First you must steal his sword
and destroy the statues in the center of the area. The sword only appears 
when his health meter is purple and there is a green arrow over his head. The
sword steal is accomplished by activating a grapple then repeatedly pressing
the on screen button. Attacking Mephisto brings out the sword. Once all statues
are turned to rubble Jean Grey or Nightcrawler is released and will attack.
For the time being ignore the X-men member and focus your attacks on Mephisto.
Once Mephisto's HP is decreased enough it permanently turns purple. Attack 
Mephisto from this point on is useless. It is now time to turn your attention
to either Jean Grey or Nightcrawler. Attack the mind controlled X-man until you
knock some sense into them. They will make a last selfless act, helping your
team defeat Mephisto.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
J. The Executioner's Blade                                             [EXB]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Executioner and Enchantress were defeated (15)

Executioner inflicts damage while Enchantress is a perfect support character.
She will frequently heal Executioner as his health decreases. In order to stop
her healing ways you must perform a 3 button combo (finishing move). Focus the
attack on Enchantress. Once she is done the melee attacks of Executioner are 
easily countered with a strong ranged hero. While attacking Enchantress be 
aware of her ability to for lack of a better word "enchant" your hero, making
them not want to attack.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
K. Giant Relief                                                        [GTR]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ymir fell to the forces of good (15)

This ice giant towers over the battle field. Unfortunately there is a forest
of trees impeding your team's progress toward this enemy. The camera will stay
in its fixed position while an enemy with a large spear will continually 
respawn. Defeat the enemy with the spear and pick up his weapon. Move toward
Ymir and watch for him to slam his ice club to the ground. If you are near the
area he attacks, a button pressing sequence will be initiated allowing your 
hero to climb the giant and position the spear into the back of his neck. Stab
4 times for the victory.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
L. The Trickster                                                       [TKS] 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Loki was defeated (45)

This achievement is (not suprisingly) tricky. At the end of Raven's Spire you 
face Loki and if all goes well defeat him and are transported back to Warrior's
Hall for a discussion with Nick Fury. After Loki is defeated though, the 
familiar chime of an achievement earned does not occur. Most, myself included,
find this to be odd. It is not a glitch though. Considering who you just 
defeated, the god of mischief, no one should be surprised to find Loki's 
initial defeat was a trick to get you to free the Destroyer armor.

Enter the four portals in Warrior's Hall and find obtain each of four swords 
required to release the armor. Once its released enter portals until you
find Loki knealing in one of the rooms. I think he may usually be in the 
far left room. In any event once he is located attack the Destroyer Armor until
it explodes and you have your achievement.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
M. Warrior's Path                                                      [WRP] 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Gladiator was defeated (15)

Gladiator will fire red lasers as he flies above you and come crashing to 
the ground to deliver a strong radial smash. He can not be harmed as long as
the four consoles located around the battlefield are active. Move to each 
console and turn it on. Now unleash your Xtreme attacks and continue to attack
until Gladiator's health meter returns to purple. Repeat until he meets his 
demise.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
N. Deathbird's Defeat                                                  [DBD] 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Deathbird was crushed (15)

The new and temporary leader of the Shi'ar will fly above for a good portion of
the fight. Attack her with ranged powers. On the few occasions she lands switch
to your strongest melee hero to pound her into submission. While she is flying
she can and will grab a hero and bring them into the air. This action starts
a button pressing sequence that if successful will drive Deathbird to the 
ground for some decent damage and allow for more quick attacks. Once her 
health has been cut in half, the crystal in the center activates and protects
her from damage. In order to break the bond attack the crystal. Once her bond
with the crystal is removed she is open for more attacks.
 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
O. Titanic Victory                                                     [TNV]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Titannus was defeated (15)

There is no mystery when facing off against Titannus. He is purely a melee 
fighter that occassionally charges his attacks. I'd recommend having all four
of your team members save an Xtreme to use at the start of the fight. Titannus
has a lot of HP. Fortunately though he is not on the attack during the entire
battle. Often he will run around the room destroying the area, this provides a
good opportunity to get in some quick strong hits. Throughout most of the game
the block button is fairly useless, it can come in handy during this battle.
Standing back and attacking with a strong ranged character and blocking when
Titannus nears is a decent strategy. Moonknight, though a melee character, is
a boss killer and works very well in this battle too.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
P. The Power Cosmic                                                    [PCC]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

The mighty Galactus was toppled (45)

Galtactus is yet another enemy you have no chance at attacking with your 
powers. In order to defeat him you must activate the 3 conoles on the 
battlefield, then hit the correct button sequence when Silver Surfer appears.
There are several Galactus Punishers to impede your progress. They can
primarily be ignored as you move from console to console. Galactus' main attack
is a fist smash that slams onto the platform. All said ignore everything but
the 3 consoles. It would be easy to fly from one computer to the next but 
Galactus is too smart for that. He will shoot you down quickly so just stay 
grounded as you move. Spider-Man with a leveled up Web Shield is a good 
character in this situation. The third time is the charm against Galactus, 3
Silver Surfer attacks and the big guy falls down.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Q. Doomed Ending                                                       [DME]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Dr. Doom was utterly defeated (45)

After seeing his dark Fantastic Four, defeated Dr. Doom decides to take matters
into his own hands. Initially, he will take no damage from any attacks, so 
ignore him and focus on the large X's scattered about the room. There are 5.
Each one marks a throne that must be destroyed to weaken Doom. After, a throne
is destroyed a dark Fantastic Four member emerges. Ignore them as well until
all the thrones are turned to rubble. Now that each X is gone head straight for
Doom. This triggers an action sequence where you will need to repeatedly press
the on screen button. If successful your hero will touch Dr. Doom and steal 
some of his power. The is not so one-sided any more. Doom moves quickly around
the room when he is attacked therefore melee characters are not extremely 
useful during this battle. A solid strong ranged hero works wonders. Doom's 
primary offense is a very strong lightning attack. If you find the health of
your hero's getting too low use the constantly respawning Fantastic 4 members
as a source of red and blue orbs. It is unlikely (after just fighting the 
dark Fantastic 4) that you have any Xtreme attacks, but on the off chance you 
do unleash them. The respawning dark heroes can also be used to replensh the 
Xtreme meter. The main strategy point here though is to focus on ranged attacks
(Spider-Man's Web Warrior (plus Shield), Iron Man's Plasma Disc, Human Torch's
Inferno etc.).

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

Unlock Nick Fury (30)

In order to unlock Fury you will have to beat the game on Easy or Normal. This
is not the place for a guide on how to beat the entire game, but adhering to 
some of the principles discussed will here will help. I would recommend just
defeating the game on normal. None of the difficulties are entirely challenging
but defeating the game on normal allows you to carry over hero stats and 
abilities to an attempt at the hard difficulty.


General Tips:

-At practically any point you can use the portal to go back to the base and 
 rest up when you are low on health or energy. This works even during boss 
 fights.

-Points applied to abilities can be removed. If you added points to an ability
 and found it is not as good as you thought it would be, all the points except
 the first can be removed and redistributed to other abilities.

-Take advantage of the team concept. As your team gains reputation points
 the team will level up. Attribute points can be spent in a variety of 
 categories making your heroes stronger.

-Don't forget to use some S.H.I.E.L.D. Credits to level up at least one costume
 for your most used heroes. 

-Save frequently. Though it is not exactly a problem with Ultimate Alliance,
 there is nothing worse than having to redo parts of missions because of an
 unexpected death.

-The heroes you are not controlling seem to take less damage than the one you
 are controlling. Use this to your advantage. When your hero is low on health
 use the direction pad to take control of someone else to conserve the health
 of the "injured" hero.

-There is a block button. I forgot about this (did not even use it except for
 a couple of the sim discs). The block button (LB) can diminish the amount of
 damage taken.

-All of the experience and credits acquired during sim discs are kept for story
 mode. So these missions can be used to help level up your heroes. This is 
 especially true of the Asgard versus missions. The enemies never stop coming
 therefore there is a lot of experience and credits to be gained.

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

Unlock Black Panther (30)

Unlocking the King of Wakanda requires the collection of at least 5 action 
figures placed throughout the worlds of Marvel Ultimate Alliance. The figures
are located:

1. Stark Tower: After defeating the Omega Base mission access is granted to
                Iron Man's Lab. Enter the lab and go down the stairs the action
                figure is under the first set of stairs.

2. Atlantis: In the dive chamber across from the entry point. (If you don't
             get this one I don't think there is a way to come back later and
             collect it).

3. Valley of Spirits: This action figure is behind destructible Buddha statues
                      at the end of the Forbidden Passage just before entrance
                      to Mandarin's Court.

4. Murderworld: Go through door 3 in the Fun House. In this area the exit will
                be blocked and clowns will attack. Destroy the clowns and walk
                toward the flowers along the wall and search for the action 
                figure. It is difficult to see but I promise it is there.

5. Mephisto's Realm: In the portion of the realm where the Book of Majernik
                     says "Whilst thy name is carven in stone, thy shall be
                     invincible," the action figure is in a grave to the rear
                     of the the area.

6. Bifrost Bridge: Early in the level you should come across a ship. At the
                   right end of the ship sits an action figure.

7. Courtyard of the Gods: After completing the Bifrost Bridge, you have access
                          to the Hall of the Honored Fallen. In the far right
                          portion of the hall there is an action figure.

8. Asgard: Move a statue in the East Wing and the West Wing. If both statues 
           are in place a secret area is accessible at the end of the West 
           Wing. The secret area has a weapon's cache with an action figure.

9. Niffleheim: At the end of Spire's Ascent after fighting Baron Mordo and 
               Ultron do not immediately exit to Raven's Spire. Instead, move
               through the now open gate and turn around and there you have 
               it a well hidden action figure.

Unlock Daredevil (30)

Daredevil is unlocked just like Black Panther except this time you are 
collecting Daredevil acton figures. Find 5 and this Marvel hero is yours.

1. Omega Base: Down the stairs to the right just before the first gear of the 
               drive train that needs destroyed

2. Atlantis: In the Atlantean Trenches just before entering the Atlantean 
             Throne Room, free the trapped soldier from the clam. He will give
             you the combination to a safe located in a nearby submarine. Open
             the chest for an action figure

3. Valley of Spirits: In the portion of the Golden Court where the fire 
                      breathing statues are located, jump to the floor below
                      and find an action figure in the center of the room 
                      along the wall with the aforementioned statues.

4. Sanctum Sanctorum: Go upstairs to the Sanctuary. The action figure is near
                      the book Vision was requesting. The book is indicated 
                      by a large X.

5. Murderworld: In "Castle Doom" a Daredevil action figure is just after
                picking up the Mysterio disc. Its to the right of the entrance
                to the next portion of the castle. If you exit and are chased
                by the moving spiked wall the action figure has been missed
                (maybe until the next play through).

6. Mephisto's Realm: The action figure is under a tree before you first 
                     encounter Ghost Rider.

7. Bifrost Bridge: Be sure to lift Odin's left arm and you will find a weapon's
                   cache with an action figure.

8. Asgard: Early in the level just to the left of the first porch you find.
           This porch also houses a weapons cache with a skill point.

9. Niffleheim: There is a house near the end of the Shore of Corpses. The
               action figure is on the roof

Silver Surfer was unlocked as a playable hero (30)

Unlocking Silver Surfer (without the cheat code) can be one of the bigger 
challenges in Ultimate Alliance. In order to obtain Silver Surfer, a bronze
must be achieved on each of the sim disc missions. The first step of this 
process is finding all of the discs during the game's story mode. Here is a
brief summary of each disc's location.

Captain America: In the Omega Base just before the battle against Crimson 
                 Dynamo

Wolverine: In a sleeping quarters during the Omega Mission just before you
           disarm the gamma bomb       

Iron Man: Iron Man's lab on a table near Elektra                      

Ultron: During the Shi'ar Empire level after Corsair leaves follow the keycard
        carrying enemy to the right

               is in a secret area behind a breakable wall

       Schematics are found                         

Black Panther: Unlock Black Panther by finding 5 action figures during story
               mode                

Doctor Strange: Sanctum Sanctorum                 

Mysterio: Murderworld near the beginning in the area with multiple side rooms 
          right before the wall with spikes chases your team (If this disc is
          missed you CAN NOT go back and get it later)

Elektra: Easily spotted in the Maze-O-Death of Murderworld

Scorpion: Mephisto's Realm just past a bridge before you encounter Blackheart

Blade: Near the beginning of Mephisto's Realm

Ghost Rider: Stygian Abyss in Mephisto's Realm, it is on a rock you must jump
             to reach on the left side of the map                   

Luke Cage: Murderworld's Big Top to the left just before reaching Senator Kelly

Spider-Man: After entering the Midgard Gate walk toward the TV screen to
            retrieve the disc. It is in the area just before the bridge where
            you have to avoid the fire blasts
                     
Storm: The very beginning of Bifrost Bridge

Thor: In Warrior Hall at Valhalla                           

Deadpool: The disc is found in Asgard while you are retrieving Heimdall's Horn
          (This disc CAN NOT be gotten by extracting to the area later. If the
           disc is missed the achievements are too until a future play through)

Invisible Woman: The first area you enter after encountering Tyr in Asgard

Shocker: Niffleheim after defeating Ulik and Kurse the disc is next to the 
         SHIELD Access Point

Spider-Woman: In Niffleheim (Spire's Ascent) just after defeating Ymir, to the
              left of the first bridge you cross. It is accessible with a hero
              that can fly                   

Iceman: Near the beginning of the Shi'ar Empire mission

Piledriver: Near the beginning of the Skrull Planet mission after destroying
            the first magnetic shield generator                     

Ulik: During the Shi'ar Empire mission just before aligning the antennae

Human Torch: In Skrull Planet right before you reach the Heights of Progress

Dragonman: In the Heights of Progress portion of Skrull Planet near the 
           SHIELD access point                     

Ms. Marvel: In the Cityscape portion of Skrull Planet it just past the flaming
            wreckage after entering the area                   

Kurse: Available from the beginning                        

Lizard: Available from the beginning                        

Paibok: Available from the beginning                        

Super Skrull: Available from the beginning                  

Thunderball: Available from the beginning                   



Now that we know where the discs are located here are some general tips for
beating each of the missions.

-Level up at least one costume for the discs, the added defense can help alot
-Redistribute skill points at the start of the mission and then just before 
 the boss
-Equip quality gear on your hero before the disc, Asgard Armor is very good
-Find the respawn point (not available in Mephisto's Realm)
 
= = = = = = = = =
Versus Missions: 
= = = = = = = = = 

Ultron, Crymson Dynamo, Mysterio, Scorpion, Shocker, Piledriver, Ulik, 
Dragon Man, Kurse, Lizard, Paibok, Super Skrull, Thunderball
 
These missions will be the easiest to defeat. Just take a team of your four 
favorite heroes into any of the missions and destroy everything you see. The 
bosses are really no match for a team.

= = = = = = = = = = =
Helicarrier Missions:
= = = = = = = = = = = 

Captain America, Iron Man, Daredevil, Invisible Woman, Spider-Woman

The Helicarrier is infested with enemies. The main respawn point is located 
just after the room you have to break the wall to enter. Kill the enemies in
here then exit to the room you just left. Now move forward again and the 
enemies are there again. Basically if you fight your way through the rooms
destroying all enemies in your way and kill the boss in a reasonably timely
manner you will get the medal you desire.

= = = = = = = = =
Asgard Missions:
= = = = = = = = =

Thor

Thor is the only hero to have a mission based in Asgard. The basic principle
here is to stay near the beginning of the level killing the endless supply of
enemies until the desired points are met.

= = = = = = = = = = = = = =
Mephisto's Realm Missions:
= = = = = = = = = = = = = =

Doctor Strange, Blade, Ghost Rider, Iceman

These missions are potentially the trickiest. There is no respawn point as far
as I can determine. The key here is to kill quickly and move forward. The 
faster you move through the disc the more points that will be added to your 
score. These four missions are probably the ones you will retry many times in
order to get the achievements associated with the discs.

At the 2 points you come across the fire giants be sure to steal their swords.
It helps take out enemies quicker. The 2nd fire giant is right before the boss
battle. The weapon can be taken to the battle for some extra damage. Every time
you come to a ledge with enemies nearby throw them to their death for quick 
kills. 

= = = = = = = = = = =
Omega Base Missions:
= = = = = = = = = = =

Wolverine, Thing, Elektra, Luke Cage, Spider-Man

The Omega Base sim discs have a wonderful respawn room. When you enter the room
with 6 consoles stay there and kill enough AIM Soldiers until you get the 
necessary number of points. Destroying one of the consoles stops the nearby 
respawn point. Once you have gained enough points destroy the remaining
consoles to continue. The only places you have to fight is in the respawn room
and the boss room. Run by all other enemies, there is no need to put your hero
in unnecessary danger.

= = = = = = =
Murderworld:
= = = = = = =

Mr. Fantastic, Black Panther, Storm, Deadpool

Move through this amusement park nightmare killing all the evil clowns and 
exploding jack-in-the-boxes as you go. Just before the boss you find the 
respawn point. Jump in the bumper car (except with Storm) and run over all
the clowns you see. When enough points are received, destroy the car at the 
end of the rink and move in to face the boss. During Storm's mission, stand
just outside the rink near the steps and use her lightning attack to kill all
the clowns that come near. They will not leave the rink and will not be able
to hit you with their poisonous green goo.

= = = = = = = =
Skrull Planet:
= = = = = = = =

Human Torch, Ms. Marvel

Skrull Planet does not have a continuous respawn areas but several areas that 
will respawn a couple enemies. Moving through the area shouldn't be two 
difficult, these two heroes are mighty powerful. In order to accumulate enough
points take out all the enemies you come across. Just as in Mephisto's Realm
take advantage of the few points enemies can be thrown from ledges. These 
easy kills add points and saves time.

Unlock all outfits for all characters (45)

In order to unlock the second costume each character has to kill 30 enemies. 
The third costume is acquired by kill 175 enemies. These enemies have to be 
taken out by a human controlled character. Kills by computer controlled heroes
do not count. Finally, the last costume is unlocked by achieving at least a 
bronze on each sim disc mission. The exceptions are: Moon Knight (does not 
have a 3rd costume), Nick Fury (no disc), Colossus (no disc), and Silver 
Surfer (no disc). A good way to get the costumes for the characters that were
not used much during story mode is to use the Asgard versus sim discs. Enter
one of these discs (Thunderball, Kurse, Ulik, Dragon Man, Piledriver, Crimson
Dynamo) and just kill the unlimited supply of enemies. See Surf's Up above 
for general tips on getting medals in the sim discs.

===============================================================================
5. Multiplayer
===============================================================================

All of these achievements must be acquired with another person. If you have 
others who can play locally (in the same room) it will go by much quicker. 
Getting some of these online will likely be frustrating, unless you have a 
friends list full of MUA players. Playing Arcade games would probably be best 
for acquiring the multiplayer achievements quickly. Just completing levels
will get you a lot of achievements while winning some of the rounds will 
get you closer to 100 victories. Also, it seems that the end of an arcade round
may be considered a level. I am not completely sure what constitutes a level,
but if each arcade round is a level it will be much easier to keep track of 
how many levels have been completed. If someone can confirm or disprove this
just let me know.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
A. I Have a Friend                                                     [FRD]   
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Complete 1 level in Co-op mode with at least 1 other player (5)

The achievement description may say co-op but arcade mode works just fine. Join
any Xbox Live game and add these 5 points to your gamerscore. If Xbox Live 
is not an option plug in a second controller and run through an early level 
controlling two characters.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B. Super Hero Team                                                     [SPT] 
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Complete 25 levels in Co-op mode with at least 1 other player (15)

Just perform the I Have a Friend achievement 25 times. Note that it says at
least one other player. Technically you could get this achievement and the 
Ultimate Team Alliance achievement at the same time. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
C. Teamwork                                                            [TWK]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Complete 1 level in Co-op with 3 other players (5)

This one is a little more difficult than I Have a Friend but still very 
attainable. Just enter or host an Xbox Live game and have 3 others join or play
to the end of a level. It is unlikely that you will be able get this 
achievement easily on your own. 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
D. Ultimate Team Alliance                                              [UTA]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Complete 25 levels in Co-op with 3 other players (15)

This was the last achievement I got. I found it terribly frustrating to find
an Xbox Live game that one of the 3 other players would not quit. Fortunately,
I was able to have 3 people over and got this one locally. It went a lot 
smoother than trying it on-line. This is also one that is very unlikely to get
individually. Having four controllers is not enough you would have to move four
characters through 25 levels. Its more plausible with 1 friend and 3 other 
controllers (each person controlling 2 characters) but still somewhat of a 
challenge. The easiest way to get this achievement is to have 3 other people 
play on the same 360.

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

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

Won 1 Arcade Mode game (5)

Arcade mode is multi-player mode where each player tries to attain the high
score in a level. The high score wins. Points are awarded for a variety of
accomplishments. The more awards won during the level the higher the score.
The possible awards and the way they are given are:

    Greed: collect the most coins
    Style: most kills with combos
    Wrestler: most kills with grapple attacks
    Assasin: most kills with a weapon
    Healing: picked up the most red healing orbs
    Punisher: gave out the most damage
    Demolition: destroyed the most objects

Winning one arcade mode is almost impossible to not do. So go ahead and add 
these 5 points to your total.

F. Battle Hardened                                                     [BTH]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Won 20 Arcade Mode games (15)

This is a cumulative achievement. All 20 do not have to be won during a single
Ultimate Alliance session. Once the total number of arcade wins reaches 20 
the sweet sound of another achievement will be triggered.

I have no idea who originally developed this strategy for the arcade mode
achievements but there is a very easy way to get them without ever logging onto
Xbox Live. The following concept was found on the GameFaqs message boards but
unfortunately the person that originally provided the information is unknown
to me.

Start a game and play to the Omega Base or extract to Wrenchworks. Once there 
save so as to create another file. Activate a 2nd controller and select arcade
mode. There is a short distance to travel in order to reach the Omega Exterior.
There are 10 enemies between the save point and the exterior. In order to
register an arcade win kill at least five enemies with the hero controlled by
the profile you want the achievement for. Before exiting the level Dum Dum 
Dugan will say something and you will arrive at the Omega Exterior. The arcade
point tally screen should appear and a win is received. After the win is 
verified load the file you made at the Wrenchworks save point and repeat.

Another way to get this achievement easily is to just have a friend play
through the levels with you and allow you to win. Once you have the
achievements, return the favor.

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

Won at least 15 Arcade Mode games in a row (25)

See the Battle Hardened description. This achievement has to be acquired in 
one setting. If you turn off the 360 or get disconnected from Xbox Live any
progress toward 15 in a row will be lost. The reload method described above 
still works.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I. The Destroyer                                                       [DTY]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Won 100 Arcade Mode games (25)

See the Battle Hardened description. The 100 wins are cumulative. They do not
have to be during any single gaming session. Win one today then the rest six 
months from now and the achievement will still register.

There is no reason not to get these achievements especially with this guide.
All of the answers are provided, how much easier could it be.

should be received in the first 10 minutes of playing. Defeat any type of 
enemy in any manner to receive 5 achievement points.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
B. Legendary Super Hero                                                [LSH]

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

Threw 5 enemies of a ledge (10)

In order to throw an enemy off a ledge there are a few requirements. First 
their must be a ledge. Next you need an enemy. Finally, grapple the available
enemy and motion the analog stick toward the ledge. There you have it an enemy
has been thrown to their death. Excellent places to throw enemies off ledges
include: 

-Skrull Planet: Cityscape
-Mephisto's Realm
-Sim Discs: Blade, Iceman, Dr. Strange, Ghost Rider
-Omega Base: Primary Lift

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

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

Performed 5 Finishing moves (5)

Finishing move achievements took me some time only because I never really used
the moves. The finishing moves are just combos that take out enemies. Some 
enemies have specific combos (as seen on screen) that take them out easier. 
Examples of combos are pop up (AAB), trip (ABA), and stun (ABB). 

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
E. Melee Master                                                        [MMS]

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

Defeat 4000 enemies (50)

There really is no strategy to get this achievement. All it takes is game play.
Fortunately, as you attempt the other achievements the kills will count. If you
have played through the game at one difficulty and medaled on each of the 
sim discs you should be reasonably close.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I. Widow Maker                                                         [WMK]

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

Beat the game in Hard Mode (50)

The main tip for beating the game on hard is to use your saved stats from 
defeating normal when you start a game on hard. The carry over allows leveled
up heroes to start from the beginning. The tips for unlocking Nick Fury [AGD]
are also pertinent here. There is not a major difference between hard and 
normal so there should not be a problem getting this achievement if you want 
it.

See Surf's Up [SRU] but adjust for the number of points required for gold.

-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
L. Good Samaritan                                                       [GSM]
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Complete the Cityscape level without any enemies dying (20)

It is easiest to get this achievement with a flying hero. The Cityscape level
is in Act 4, Skrull Planet. The level begins after defeating Paibok and Super
Skrull and ends when you enter the Heights of Progress. All that has to be 
done is fly from the beginning of the level to the end. Do not kill any 
enemies. If all enemies were avoided the achievement will chime in as you exit
the level.

This note is from one of the guide's readers:

Fight through the level as normal. When you reach the end of the level exit. 
Before moving through the next area turn around and return to the Heights of 
Progress. Now exit the Heights of Progress one more time to get the
achievement.

I had know idea where this one was going to happen. The other achievements 
could be figured out ahead of time. Gladiator mistakes Sabretooth for Wolverine.

this unfortunate mistake. Sabretooth, needless to say, was not too pleased
about the error.
