Synopsis

Thumb

The Red Skull has assembled an army of super-villains and is using a mind control device to dictate their every move. With these super-powered slaved under his control he seeks to conquer the world once and for all. It's up to the Avengers to stop him.

Notes

  • The original arcade version of this game was very well received while the console games, especially the NES version, were considered underwhelming.
  • Excluding the NES version, Captain America, Iron Man, Hawkeye, and Vision were the playable characters while Wasp, Quicksilver, Wonder Man, and Namor were support characters who could be summoned once power-ups were collected.
  • In the NES version, Captain America and Hawkeye were the only two playable characters and they had to rescue Iron Man and Vision. The game format was completely different as well, with entirely different stages, gameplay, and minor enemies. Versions of Wizard, Ultron, Crossbones, and Mandarin were the main villains.

Trivia

The arcade version of the game makes an appearance in the 1994 movie "Airheads".
