The heroes of the Marvel universe come to life in MARVEL HEROES: the Board Game! Thwarting robberies, solving mysteries, and rescuing citizens from danger are all in a day's work for members of the Avengers, the Fantastic Four, the X-Men, and the Marvel Knights ... unless there's a super villain involved! Simultaneously, they take the role of an evil Mastermind, whether it's the Kingpin of Crime, Dr. Doom, the Red Skull, or the mutant terrorist Magneto. They will fight crime and progress their story as super heroes, and work to complete their villainous plans as Masterminds, all competing to be the most successful at both tasks. The action unfolds in New York City, on an impressively detailed and accurate map depicting Manhattan Island as well as Brooklyn and Queens. Players will respond to dangerous and criminal events, represented by Headlines, that crop up across the city, sending members of their super hero team to rescue citizens, fight crime, and battle super villains. Meanwhile, the dastardly Masterminds work to their own purposes - and especially to defeat their Nemesis super-team!
