Marvel Super Heroes is the Spiritual Successor of X-Men: Children of the Atom. It was released in 1995.

The roster retained Wolverine, Psylocke, Juggernaut, and Magneto, from the previous game, and was diversified with the additions of Captain America (comics), Spider-Man, Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Blackheart, and Shuma-Gorath (A Doctor Strange/Kull The Conqueror villain more people know about from these games than the comics).

The game was based (loosely) on the Infinity Gauntlet storyline, and featured the Gems as power-ups that could be gained and used in battle. Each Gem had a different default ability, while each character had an affinity for a certain gem that would make them even stronger when they used it. After fighting the other heroes and villains for the Gems, the player faced down Dr. Doom, before trying to get the final gem from Thanos.

It was followed in 1996 with X-Men vs. Street Fighter.
