Variant Costumes Announcement

Hey all!

Thanks so much for all of your feedback on Limited Edition Costumes. We’d like to release these costumes in some form and we’ve come up with a new format for them using your excellent feedback.

The original idea for these came from those of us who like to collect limited edition statues and toys, especially special variations on them. We thought it was a cool concept for us, so we wanted to incorporate that into the game somehow – giving people who purchase costumes a chance to own something special. However, we also want it to be a positive experience and not associate any bad feelings with the concept, which is why we are very willing to completely rethink the original idea.

As a teenager, Richard Rider was chosen at random by the alien Rhomann Dey, last surviving Centurion of the planet Xandar’s elite Nova Corps, to inherit his power and succeed him in the rank of Nova Prime following the destruction of his world by the intergalactic pirate Zorr. Rider gained great strength, invulnerability, the power to fly, and a uniform with a sealed life support system, but little instruction on how to use these new powers.

A (Mostly) Comprehensive Guide For New Players – New Video Added for MH 2015 – Updated for 1.38

I’ve been seeing a lot of questions both in Social and on the forums regarding certain, somewhat basic but confusing aspects of this amazing game. In an attempt to answer at least a decent portion of them, I created this video to help out.


Since this can, at the very least, be described as an enormous, frightening behemoth, I not only indexed this new video, I also put in subindices as well as ‘return to main menu’ buttons at each one. I think it’ll help a good bit with the basic navigation. As before, here they are for forum purposes.

Basic Controls and Settings – Starts at 0:01:34

  • Movement, use of powers
  • Help menu
  • Gameplay/keybinding settings
  • Shift+Left click = use left click attack without clicking an enemy
  • Ctrl+Left click = move with enemies around
  • Use medkits with M – they resto...

Hot Dogs for Second Harvest Food Bank!

This image has been resized to fit in the page. Click to enlarge.

In honor of our landslide win of MMORPG’s “Best Overall MMO of 2014,” @AgentParks and @Ryolnir will be livestreaming tomorrow at 2PM PST. AgentParks will be eating hot dogs for charity, with proceeds going to the Second Harvest Food Bank! Here’s the specific details from @AgentParks himself:

For every hot dog I get down, we’ll be donating $10 to Second harvest Food Bank in San Mateo. So each dog will buy roughly 20 meals. We’ll be giving away Fred Dawson’s Hot Dog Cart to random people in the stream. Also for every hot dog I get down, we’ll be boosting server-side RIF/SIF by 5%.

We’re going to be showing off Winter Soldier, and giving items away too...

What is Gameplay Guides for?

Welcome! In this subforum, we hope to make a one-stop shop for general guides to Marvel Heroes.

This subforum’s something of an experiment, because the content is basically generated by you, the community! We hope to see plenty of guides here to all sorts of subjects.

One thing we would expect is that those of you who’ve written excellent gameplay guides to specific characters might want to keep those in the relevant hero forums. That’s totally fine; if you do that, feel free to post a discussion here with a link to your guide in the specific forum. We’ll make sure people see it.

Thinking about writing a guide? Here are a few subjects you might like to tackle:

  • Best builds for PvP
  • Taking down Doom (for fun and profit)
  • All you need to know about crafting
  • Building a better guild

You get th...
