Whether you grew up reading the comics or you simply just love super heroes, there’s no shortage of ways for people to get their hands on all kinds of super hero themed content. If you love games, this includes quite the selection of super hero games from both of the most iconic super hero universes, DC and Marvel Comics. Since there are plenty to choose from, we’ve gone ahead and worked up a list of 10 great games that have super heroes in them that are worth checking out.
Batman v Superman Who Will Win
You can never really have enough takes on an endless runner, and that’s what the game kicking off this list is all about. Choose either Batman or Superman and make your way through the city streets of Gotham and Metropolis as you dodge obstacles and try to collect emblems and run as far as you can for a high score.
Avengers Alliance caters to those who are huge fans of the Avengers in the Marvel universe. you can choose from multiple different super heroes including Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, and more to build up a strong team and complete missions and quests against some of the most powerful super villains.
Marvel Avengers Academy
Another Avengers themed title, Avengers Academy is a mix of an adventure game and a builder game. The Avengers are reimagined as students and it’s your job to build your very own Avengers Academy where the students can train and evolve into the heroes you know and love.
Injustice: Gods Among Us
If you were a big fan of the console version of Injustice, you can take most of the same action on the go with the mobile version of the game, collecting multiple heroes and villains with which to fight against your opponents, and as part of the effort to promote the upcoming Batman VS Superman movie, the game has specialized content themed after the film.
Marvel Contest of Champions
The mobile version of Injustice may be great, but perhaps you’re more of a Marvel Comics fan. If that’s the case then check out Marvel Contest of Champions as it offers a very similar gameplay, but with heroes and villains from the Marvel universe instead.
Marvel Puzzle Quest
Puzzle Quest offers up a bit of RPG elements wrapped up in a match 3 puzzle title that is filled with plenty of Marvel action. Although the initial gameplay is going to matching sets of the same colored gem stones, you’ll also be able to level up characters and compete in events and tournaments.
Batman Arkham Origins
Much like Injustice: Gods Among Us, this game is going to feel a lot like fighting gameplay but focused solely on Batman, as a mobile adoption of the Arkham Origins console and PC game. You can unlock and collect different Batman suits and armor, and battles play out with a series of gestures, swipes, and taps to defeat your enemies throughout the game.
If arcade style games are more your style then Marvel Pinball should be right up your alley. There are a handful of different Marvel themed tables available in the game with more available as in-app purchases. This should be a great hit for anyone that remembers striving for the high score in arcades when growing up.
Marvel Future Fight
Marvel Future Fight is a great combination of action and RPG in a hack and slash style of play. You’ll run through a series of quests and missions with a team of three different characters, all of which can level up and gain newer and stronger abilities. It’s got great graphics and a fairly large set of dialogue with a great storyline to follow.
LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes
For those that love super heroes and villains but are looking for something a little more light-hearted, LEGO’s recently released LEGO Batman: DC Super Heroes is rounding out this list. You can play as 80 different characters throughout the game with an ultimate goal of protecting Gotham City.
