In adventure mode, users can partake in 6 action-packed campaigns and 2 bonus campaigns either by themselves or with a friend. The adventure mode is in fact very similar to TMNT: Turtles in Time, except that it’s all in 3D. Like TMNT, Hero Squad is all about killing all your enemies by gradually eliminating their health, and then progressing onto the next scenario. In battle mode, on the other hand, users instead go head-to-head against their friends in an all-out free-for-all battle. It’s either kill, or be killed.

Plot Information

Marvel Super Hero Squad incorporates a simplified version of the Marvel Comic plot involving the Asgard, the Vault, Villainville, and Super Hero City. It centers on Doctor Doom’s quest for the fractals of the Infinity Sword. The ultimate goal is to save Super Hero City.
