marvel heroes iron man

If you’re planning on specializing the Iron Man, I can recommend this leveling book providing the best talents, effective rotations and plus, an all exclusive how-to leveling section. This is a guide you can’t miss if you want to mold the Iron Man into a formidable opponent in Marvel Heroes!

The world of Iron Man began as a man named Tony Stark. He was in charge of a company called Stark Industries who specialized in making weaponry. On a visit to the Persian Gulf, Tony Stark became a hostage when captured by the enemy and was forced to build them a new super weapon. Along with Ho Yinsen, a world renowned physicist and also a prisoner of the enemy, he created the first version of his powered battle armor. Ho Yinsen’s life was lost when buying Tony Stark the last moments he needed to initiate his battle armor. He escaped imprisonment and since then has lived two separate lives. He lives as Tony Stark, the businessman in charge of Stark industries, and as the modern super hero we know of today, Iron Man.

In the game Marvel Heroes Iron Man has many skills that make him a great choice to use as a character. His starting powers include Repulsor Blast, Pulse Bolt, and Reserve Power. Repulsor Blast can deal rapid damage with no spirit cost. Pulse Bolt has higher damage and deals damage to all enemies surrounding the initial target, but has a slower firing rate and consumes Spirit points. Reserve Power gives your character more Spirit points determined by what rank the skill is. At level two you gain the power Force Shield. This allows your avatar to suck up 50% of the damage dealt to him. The shield’s capacity starts at 200 damage but as your rank increases so does the capacity.

As you progress to level 3 you gain the ability of Hyper-Velocity Charge. This ability sends you straight through enemies with the use of your jet boots and force shield. The enemies in contact are knocked back which gives you the opportunity to hit them hard or escape if you happen to be in too deep. Repulsor Barrage is unlocked at level 4 and allows for a rapid fire repulsor blasts. This can be very deadly to enemies but be careful about using up all of your Spirit points. You may need them later when you get into a tough situation.

If you’re looking for an excellent guide to help you get started in the game, I suggest you take a look at Killer Guide’s Unofficial Strategy Guide (here’s our review of the guide). By far it’s one of the best guides I’ve come across that delves into leveling, walkthrough and builds. The best part? Free updates!

Nova

Perhaps one of the youngest heroes on the roster, Nova is teenage hero Sam Alexander. Sam was gifted with the power of an intergalactic peace keeping force known as the Nova Corps. While he wasn’t sure why he was granted the power and the helmet, he’s tried to use it to fight for what’s good and right. Offered membership in the Avengers after his exploits helping to fend of the Phoenix, Nova hasn’t accepted his place on the team yet. If he does, he will be far and away the youngest of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes.

There are two, serious build styles for Nova for players that want to jump right into the action and start wrecking stuff. The first is the Nova Cannon. This build focuses almost exclusively on Nova’s long-range damage dealing capacity. Players need to build up his shaped blasts, and increase the amount of damage done by Nova’s energy blast at every opportunity. The goal with this build is to make Nova so deadly that enemies will never have the opportunity to close the distance to find out what a glass cannon Nova really is.

The second build could best be thought of as the Battering Ram. Nova’s melee attacks aren’t too shabby, and his ability to smash right into the heart of a group, or to slam into a big bag and start swinging is a big advantage. Players is able to turn Nova into a guided missile like Wolverine skills, tending to focus on his melee skills, charge damage and speed. While it’s possible to fight from a distance with this build, it will never deal as much damage as charging right in recklessly and laying about with as many energy blast punches as possible.

Over the weekend I’m sure many of you got your hands on playing Marvel Heroes beta. It’s been a fun game to play, to be perfectly honest. This is a summary of my experiences with the game.

When starting off the game, I had the option of choosing several characters:

  • Daredevil
  • Hawkeye
  • Scarlet Witch
  • Storm
  • Thing

Marvel Heroes StormI choose Storm as my starting character. At the beginning you started off at the Avenger’s Tower to receive your quests. Your objective is go to S.H.I.E.L.D’s maximum security prison where the in-mates broke out including: Green Goblin, Venom and Living Laser.

Once arriving at the prison, your job was to lockdown the prison and you were instantly greeted (unceremoniously) by Hydra enemies! Left clicking on the mouse initiates basic (lightning) attacks while right clicking gives Storm the ability to push back enemies in a form of a whirlwind, which uses Spirit. Her attacks are great for those who want to keep a fair distance between them and the enemies.

In addition to Storm’s storm-based and lightning attacks, she can also hurl objects at the enemy. You can move your mouse and hover it over a chair or an oil can and throw it. The only downside to it was that you couldn’t move your character while holding the object.

Eventually I changed from Storm and purchased Deadpool, using the 2000Gs that were given to me. This is the only time you’ll receive in-game currency. Left clicking on the mouse initiates Deadpool to run up (close and personal) to the enemy and slice them. However, right clicking allows Deadpool to shoot his enemies from short, mid and long range distances. Most of the time I used his pistols to defeat enemies from afar. The best part was that I just had to hold down the right side of the mouse and the bullets kept on flyin’!

The best thing about Deadpool? His health automatically regens. There’s some equipments that allow Deadpool’s health to regen much faster by 1%. This is quite good since sometimes Medical packs are hard to come by. As an added note, med packs cost only 25 Credits so having a stack of them wouldn’t hurt.

Deadpool

When you’re done with the mission, you fly back to the Avenger’s Tower. It was surprising to see how many ‘heroes’ were gathered in one place. I saw several Captain Americas, Iron Mans, Wolverines, Thors–you name it, they’re there. At the tower you can talk to several characters where you can heal your character, buy gear and even craft!

Missions are repeatable in the game. I found that out by accident when playing chapter 1 again but this time, Deadpool was at a higher level. I was able to get more money and usable loot. Not bad for a starting area. The bosses (Green Goblin and Living Laser) were much easier to defeat.

Overall I really like the overall feel of the beta; nothing seemed too overwhelming and gaining experience was easy. You can lure enemies into a thick mob and unleash AoE skills which wipe them out in one go. Though the game did lag for me every so often but I think that’s due to the volume of players whom are playing at this moment. That’s what I think anyway. Most importantly though, it’s a game where you can come back again until you reach the endgame. That has to be seen! With a roster of 26 characters and counting, returning to the game will yield new experiences and perhaps, making new friends along the way.

Right now the game is up for pre-purchase; as Marvel calls it, “Founder’s Packs”.

Marvel Heroes Packs

By pre-purchasing these packs, you gain access to a variety of goodies to heroes, costumes, XP boosts, you name it. And the best part of the packs is you get up to 2 to 7 days full access to the game before the release date, set on June 4th. If you’re wondering if you need to buy these packs, you really don’t; the game is free-to-play!

Thing

The Thing, alias Ben Grimm, is perhaps the most recognizable member of the superhero family thing guidesthe Fantastic Four. A former air force pilot and astronaut, Grimm was at the controls of the infamous voyage that exposed him, Reed Richards, Sue Richards and Johnny Storm to the cosmic rays that gave them all their newfound powers. Grimm though, was the only one who was so physically changed. Though he was superhumanly strong, nigh invulnerable and possessed of an increased size, Grimm was also transformed into a towering behemoth of orange rock. Seen as a monster by others, and even by himself, Grimm suffers from a constant internal battle to prove himself a hero.

The Thing is, at the end of the day, a melee based brawler. This is true to form from the comics, but players have to keep that in mind when they throw him into fights. The Thing, like all other heroes that fight with their fists, can have a real problem if he gets surrounded. He’s also a really big target, which can leave him a sitting duck for bad guys with laser cannons to take pot shots at before he manages to close the distance. This means that players need to keep an eye on where enemies are, and whether they’re setting up to shoot or just to flank the Thing to try and take him out before he does the same to them. If possible the Thing works best fighting smaller groups of weaker enemies, or going toe to toe with a big boss. If he has a team, preferably of skirmishers or long-range shooters such as Hawkeye behind him, then Thing holds the front line while the others blast away to deal all of the appropriate damage.
