LEGO Marvel Super Heroes is a LEGO video game developed by TT Games based off of the Marvel Comics superheroes and villains.
Like a majority of the LEGO games created by TT Games, players take control of characters that are modeled like actual LEGO parts (but with far more mobility) and are divided into groups according to certain skills. The player progresses through a number of levels following a linear plot(in total 20), but can return to the levels later on in free play mode, using any of the characters they unlocked up until that point. In addition, there are a variety of side-levels to embark on. LEGO Marvel Superheroes also carries over a large number of features that were included in LEGO Batman 2: DC Superheroes. For example, heat-related characters can destroy gold bricks, rocket-using characters can destroy silver bricks, superheroes that have the power of flight in the comic books can fly in the game, and characters with super strength can destroy or manipulate LEGO objects that normal characters cannot. LEGO Marvel Super Heroes includes some new powers and abilities as well, however. For example, Spider-Man has his "spider senses" that allow him to locate hidden bricks required for advancing the gameplay in levels, and the "big-figs" like the Hulk and Abomination can destroy or manipulate objects in ways even different than characters with normal super strength. Not counting DLC characters, there are 150 playable characters in the game.
LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, like its two predecessors LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes and LEGO Lord of the Rings, contains a large open world that also acts as the game's hub. The open-world is the Marvel universe version of New York, and it also includes a helicarrier above the city that one can access. Players may at any time in the game skydive from the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier down to New York hub. In the open world, players can also find the side-levels separate from the main storyline. These are hidden throughout New York City that features characters not in the main story, have a comic style intro and outro, and are narrated by Deadpool.
Still, more features from past LEGO games return in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, albeit slightly changed. There will be a character creator that is much more advanced than in previous games: in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, players can choose what abilities they want their character to have, such as super-strength, flight, etc (by equipping things like Magneto's helmet, Wolverine's claws, etc.). Certain pieces can also be recolored to make the character look more like whoever the player is trying to create, and players can save up to 12 custom characters at a time. The minikits return as well, with 10 in each level. By finding all 10 for a level, a unique comic book is unlocked, something that differs from past games where a small LEGO build is unlocked instead. In addition, the red power bricks are now known as "Deadpool" bricks. When players find one, then they can buy it off of Deadpool in his room aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier.
