Frequently Asked Questions

Question: How many playable Marvel characters are in the game?

Answer: There are 164 playable characters in the game. That is, if you’re not counting the 16 downloadable content (DLC) characters announced so far. You can also save up to 12 custom characters using the game’s character creator.

Question: How to buy characters?

Answer: This can only be done while you’re in Free Play mode (it doesn’t work in Story mode). The “switching characters” button is the same as the “transforming characters” button (that you use to turn into Lego Big Figures like the Hulk). You can only buy a character that you have already unlocked, by holding the Triangle button on PS3 / holding the Y button on Xbox 360, to bring up the character menu. When you see that character menu, then select the black silhouette of the character you want from the grid and select “Buy” to make it available for you to play with in Free Play mode.

Important Note #1: Unlocking characters usually involves completing campaign missions, bonus- or side missions, or finding their token hidden throughout the New York City overworld map. To find out how to get all the characters in the game, please look at our Lego Marvel Super Heroes Unlockable Characters Guide.

Important Note #2: If you’re not done with the Story campaign yet, and are not doing Free Play mode, then the only way to bring up the character menu screen to buy characters is by finding a SHIELD computer. Look for the blue Vehicle Call-In Points that are connected to SHIELD and that can even take you to the SHIELD Helicarrier.

Question: How to switch characters?

Answer: This can only be done while you’re in Free Play mode (it doesn’t work in Story mode). The “switching characters” button is the same as the “transforming characters (into Lego Big Figures)” button. Hold the Triangle button on PS3 / hold the Y button on Xbox 360 to bring up the character menu. Keep in mind that on transforming characters you have to wait until they are halfway through their transform animation, and then hold the same button again for the character menu to pop up.

Question: How do I get into Free Play?

What you need to do to get in Free Play mode is select the level from the map (don’t go through the door or you’ll end up in Story mode). Or go to the SHIELD Helicarrier’s inside command center computer and select Free Play from there… In case you’re having difficulty finding the SHIELD Helicarrier, just go to any of the blue Vehicle Call-In Points across New York City and select the option to be taken directly to the SHIELD Helicarrier, and from the deck take the elevator down to get to the computer.

Question: How do you save the game?

Answer: The game will automatically save your progress once you reach the end of a level. If you want to save the game manually, you have to press the Start button get to the pause menu and from there you can exit the game, at which point the game should ask if you want to save and quit… say “Yes” to save.

Question: Is there a game-breaking glitch I should know about?

Answer: Yes, in “Level 6: Red Head Detention” don’t switch to Hawkeye in the level area shown next. Instead, stick with Black Widow or the Human Torch as you cross the in the video indicated platform.

Question: Where is Deadpool’s room?

Answer: When you’re on the SHIELD Helicarrier (again, take any blue Vehicle Call-In Point to go there), and from the deck take the elevator down into the main room. There you’ll go through the door to enter a hallway to the central Control Room area, where you can go through a door on the left side. There you’ll find Deadpool’s room, it’s the first door on the right, the one with the pink neon sign. Take a closeup look at the map once you are there (press Select). — Buying Red Bricks in his room will unlock new cheats you can then activate via the game’s pause menu, or you can just read comics in his room.

This voice-over guide shows how to walk to Deadpool’s room. It begins 2 minutes into the video:
