The game will offer an original storyline in which Nick Fury calls upon Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and other heroes spanning the Marvel Universe to save Earth from such threats as the vengeance of Loki and the hunger of Galactus, Devourer of the Worlds. LEGO and Marvel fans will enjoy classic LEGO video game adventure and humor, while playing as their favorite Marvel characters.

The game will pack in a plethora of character abilities, combat-like action sequences, epic battle scenes, puzzle-solving and a unique story told with playful LEGO humor.
One of the most under-the-radar, yet very popular franchises, has done wonderful things thus far. Starting with the complete Star Wars saga and then continuing with great things like Pirates of the Caribbean and more recently Lord of the Rings. They have done a great job so far with creating a family-friendly and very fun game.
