Marvel Heroes is a strategy/fantasy board game for two to four players. Designed by Marco Maggi and Francesco Nepitello, with Roberto Di Meglio, Simone Peruzzi e Salvatore Pierucci, was created by Nexus Editrice. The English version was released by Fantasy Flight Games in 2006.


Each player chooses to play one of four 4-character Marvel Comics superhero teams. Each player also controls the archenemy of one of the opponents' team to the left of you. These 20 characters, listed below, are represented in the game by fully colored miniatures; other heroes, villains, and characters in the Marvel Universe are represented by cards which influence game play. Each turn, a player manipulates one or more of his four main heroes and plays cards to solve mysteries, stop crimes and defeat villains.
