- No special notes.
- Although the game was intended to be the start of a series, it failed critically and financially, canceling future sequels.
- It was the first game to be created by an EA and Marvel partnership. It started in 2005 and ended in 2007.
- The PSP port is drastically different in both gameplay and style, and even replaces two characters (Human Torch and Daredevil) with Doctor Doom and Captain America.
- There was a six issue comic book series based on the Imperfects, intended as a prequel and setup for unfolding events in the game.
- In Marvel vs Capcom 3, there is a costume for Spider-Man that is neon green and dark black, nearly identical compared to the "evil" costume Spider-Man has in Marvel Nemesis.
- It's been rumored that EA, who published Marvel Nemesis, forced the developers to rush the game so they could make profit off of the series.
- No further material has been made for the characters featured in the game.
