Make Your Own Super Hero In Lego Marvel Super Heroes

By Spencer . April 12, 2013 . 5:03pm


I saw a demo of Lego Marvel Super Heroes which took place in "Sand Central Station." Yup, Lego Marvel Super Heroes has the same sense of humor as other TT Games titles. The game also has voice acted cutscenes like Lego Batman 2.


In the intro level, Iron Man, Spider-Man, and the Hulk had to work together to defeat Sandman. The boss fight was a puzzle where players had to activate three hoses and soak Sandman with water. The puzzles were designed so characters had to work together like Spider-Man using his webbing to create a rope for the Hulk so he can smash a Lego barrier. Iron Man can fly around and Spider-Man also has his Spider-Sense which detects hidden blocks.


Lego Marvel Super Heroes pairs characters up that you may not normally see like Captain America and Wolverine in the second level. Captain America, of course, throws his shield and if you do this at a wall you can create a platform. Deadpool is also confirmed to be in the game. A staff member from TT Games explained Deadpool has dual swords, dual guns, regeneration, and the power to break the fourth wall.


After the demo I talked to a representative from TT Games who explained players will be able to create and play as their own superhero in Lego Marvel Super Heroes. They’re still tweaking this feature, but the players will be able to mix and match powers from heroes and villains. I joked about the idea of Abomination with Captain America’s shield and I was told that might not be possible because Abomination like Hulk are "big figs" and they have a different set of abilities. A dude with Wolverine’s claws and Captain America’s shield is possible, though. Custom Lego heroes is a neat idea, but the characters you make are locked to your console. Unfortunately, custom super heroes tied to the save game whether its on PS3, Xbox 360, Wii U or either handheld. TT Games won’t have a hero sharing hub or anything like that either.


Lego Marvel Super Heroes is slated for release this fall on PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, Wii U, PC, Nintendo 3DS, PlayStation Vita, and even Nintendo DS.

    It’s crazy that the Lego Man Iron Man actually looks like Robert Downey Jr.

    • neocatzon

      Since it’s in Lego let’s called him Robert Downey Jr Jr.

  • Curan_Altea

    A custom hero feature sounds awesome, and Deadpool makes this the best Lego game yet.
    It looks rather nice on a graphical level too.

    Haven’t gotten a Lego game in years but may pick this one up.

  • Ben Sylvia

    So some puzzles will require Deadpool to break the 4th wall?

    I love TT Games.

  • StarWarudo

    This is like the first Lego game I’m even remotely interested in. Looks really fun.

  • Tails the Foxhound

    Someone tell them that Streetpass would be an amazing way to trade your custom super heroes!

  • Crimson_Cloud

    Custom hero sounds nice but you’ll probably only use him like you used a custom made character in Lego Star Wars, not integrated into the story at all.

  • Letiumtide

    Having just beaten Lego Lord of the Rings, I’m rather excited for this even if I don’t care in the slightest about the Avengers, I’m just hoping they don’t bother with audio from those movies and go back to the silent comedy from previous games.

  • Vino (Tim N)

    Are these games local co-op usually? I’ve never played a Lego brand series game, but heard they can be fun.

    • ddh819

      yes most (all?) of the console ones can do local co op. some of the handheld ones could also.

  • Vash bane

    ” custom hero feature ”
    every fans wet dream

  • Elvick

    Lost me at “and even Nintendo DS”. That means the Vita and 3DS versions will suck. And I have no desire to play LEGO games on consoles anymore.

  • I wonder if this one will have the traditional “screen tear” of Lego games…
    I would prefer the resolution to be limited to 720p and capped to 30fps if that meant NO (or hardly any) screen tear.
    Since it is most likely a game engine issue, i doubt it will be fixed… :(
