The various enclosures are pictured with their respective variant, but are provided in super zoom here.


Marvel Super Heroes has one of the most diverse variant sets on the PlayStation for the number of releases it got – I’m shocked it didn’t go Greatest Hits. The first variant to discuss is the Phone Card Variant. It included with a card on a small cardboard sheet. The Disc is SLUS-00257 / PSRM-003291

There’s also the Sweepstakes Card version. This included a small sheet you scratch off to win an arcade machine. Oddly enough, one of the prizes you could win was $2.00 off the video game you just bought.

Finally the Fighters Edge variant, which was part of Capcom’s short but nifty rewards program. This one’s disc is the full light blue, so it’s easy to spot.

  • The game’s case artwork actually presents you all but two characters separated by alignment. The front cover features all 6 good guys, the CD features the 3 ‘human’ bad guys, and the inside back insert features the ‘god’ character Thanos. Oddly, the two missing are the bad ‘creature’ characters – Shuma Gorath and Blackheart. Sadly, the Fighter’s Edge version ruins this by having a silkscreen of the good guys on the CD.
  • Despite not showing it, the US Sega Saturn Version uses the Japanese 1 Meg Cart. Several stages are interactive in not-so-subtle ways. Your attacks will constantly damage Iron Man’s lab area, you can destroy the bridge in Wolverine’s stage, get thrown through Shuma-Gorath’s area, etc.
  • The game is based loosely around the events of the Infinity Gauntlet story line from the early 90s Marvel Comics. Thanos, the end boss of the game, searches out 6 Gems that essentially give him the power of a God. He removes half the universe’s population with a single snap of his finger, can control entire planets, and creates his own mate. In the game, each of the 6 Gems have specific powers that help you against an opponent. Thanos has control of all 6 in the final battle.
  • Like other games, several characters were borrowed or lent to other games. Juggernaut, Wolverine, Psylocke and Magento came from the X-Men: Children of the Atom game. Most of the cast then went on to be in Marvel Super Heroes Vs Street Fighter and the Marvel Vs Capcom games.
  • The Fighter’s Edge variant is in regards to a weird promotion that Cpacom and GamePro set up. Essentially each Capcom game had points you could clip from the manual’s back cover. Sending these in would allow you to buy Shirts, Snowboards, Mugs, etc. The problem was that instead of having the killer Capcom artwork that everyone would want, it only featured the Fighter’s Edge logo, which was was very generic and rather pointless. The program eventually quietly closed.




Marvel Super Heroes carries a few ways to expand the fun, including produce and bosses!

  • Throw Pumpkins
    Get and activate the reality gem, then push Select.
  • Alternate Costumes
    Disable ‘shortcuts’ in the Options Menu. At the character select screen press and hold Down if the character is on the bottom row or Up if your character is on the top row for three seconds then push any button.
  • Continue Fighting During the Winning Round
    When the match ends press Select to keep hitting your enemy.
  • Disable The Infinity Stones in Versus Mode
    Before beginning a match press and hold Select on both controllers. If entered correctly the words “ No Gems” will be displayed as the fight starts.
  • Play as Dr. Doom
    Finish the game under the setting defaults and save. Then turn off the option ‘shortcuts’. Once at the character selection screen, press down, then down again then hold. While holding, quickly hit X, Circle, R1 in exact order, holding each button before the next. So you’re pressing all 4 buttons at once to complete the trick.
  • Play as Thanos
    Finish the game under the setting defaults and save. Turn off the ‘shortcuts’ option. Load to the character select screen then press Up, then Up again but hold. While holding Up press L1, Triangle, and Square quickly in that order, holding each button as you press the next. So you’re pressing all 4 buttons at once to complete the trick.
