Warnings & Ratings

Important Health Warning About Playing Video Games

Photosensitive Seizures

A very small percentage of people may experience a seizure when exposed to certain visual images, including flashing lights or patterns that may appear in video games. Even people who have no history of seizures or epilepsy may have an undiagnosed condition that can cause these “photosensitive epileptic seizures” while watching video games.

These seizures may have a variety of symptoms, including lightheadedness, altered vision, eye or face twitching, jerking or shaking of arms or legs, disorientation, confusion, or momentary loss of awareness. Seizures may also cause loss of consciousness or convulsions that can lead to injury from falling down or striking nearby objects.

Immediately stop playing and consult a doctor if you experience any of these symptoms. Parents should watch for or ask their children about the above symptoms—children and teenagers are more likely than adults to experience these seizures. The risk of photosensitive epileptic seizures may be reduced by taking the following precautions: Sit farther from the screen; use a smaller screen; play in a well-lit room; and do not play when you are drowsy or fatigued. If you or any of your relatives have a history of seizures or epilepsy, consult a doctor before playing.

Precautions to take during use

  • Sit a good distance away from the monitor.
  • Avoid playing if you are tired or have not had much sleep.
  • Make sure that the room in which you are playing is well lit.
  • Rest for at least 10 to 15 minutes per hour while playing a video game.

The first time you play a level, you do so in story mode, and will only have access to a limited cast of characters. Some areas and collectibles will be out of reach in story mode: return to the level in Free Play mode and use different characters to explore new areas.

To replay a level, you must first be located in Chronopolis. Then press the Return (↩) key to access the in-game Pause menu, then select Open Map. Select the Level tab to locate the level you want to replay, then press the J key to select it.

Free Play

Once you have completed a level in story mode, you can replay it in Free Play mode using any of the characters you have unlocked so far.

You can use different characters to access areas that were previously inaccessible and find collectibles you missed the first time round.



You'll unlock new characters as you play through the game.

Different characters have different abilities. If you find that you can't perform an action or access an area with one character, try switching to another.

Some characters can only be unlocked by collecting character tokens which can be found throughout the game.

Changing Characters

To change characters, press the U key to switch to the nearest playable character.

In Free Play mode, hold the U key down to bring up the character grid, which lets you switch to any of your unlocked characters.


Flying and Web-slinging

When playing as a character that can fly or sling webs, press the the J key key so the character jumps, then press the the J key key again to make the character use their power.

Once the character is in mid-air, use the W / A / S / D keys to move and the the J key / the K key keys to climb and descend.

Throwing and Aiming

Some characters have weapons that you need to aim before firing or throwing, such as Captain America’s shield.

To aim and fire, hold down the H key to bring up the target reticle. When the reticle appears, use the W/A/S/D keys to position it over your target, then release the H key to throw or fire your weapon.


Power Meter

The white bar next to your character icon at the top of the screen is your power meter.

The power meter is divided into three segments, and fills up as you attack enemies. You can use power to perform special moves.

Special Moves

Special moves are powerful attacks that you can perform during combat.

To execute a special move, at least one segment in your power meter must be full. Grab the enemy you want to attack by pressing the K key, then press the K key again to perform the move.

Performing a special move uses up one segment of your power meter.

Team-Up Moves

Two characters can combine their unique abilities to perform a super-powered Team-Up move.

To execute a Team-Up move, your power meter must be full. When it is, move close to the character you want to team up with. When a blue symbol appears above them, press the K key to perform the move.

Executing a Team-Up move uses up all three segments of your power meter.



Scattered throughout the game, you'll find plenty of vehicles that you can drive.

To get into a vehicle, stand next to it and press the U key. To get out, press the U key again.

To accelerate, press the J key, and to brake or reverse, press the K key. To steer, use the A/D keys.

In some missions, vehicles can be summoned from the vehicle grid by holding the U key and then pressing the H key.


All of the different locations in LEGO Marvel Super Heroes 2 have been ripped from time and space. They all come together to form one huge open hub world - Chronopolis. Each location in Chronopolis has its own optional side-missions, separate from the main story, as well as secret areas and collectibles for you to discover.



LEGO Studs

LEGO studs are scattered throughout the game. Collect them and spend them later in various locations. Collect enough in a level and you will achieve "True Believer" status.


There are 10 minikits to collect in each level. Some of the minikits can only be accessed during free play.

Pink Bricks

Pink bricks unlock helpful gameplay effects. Some pink bricks can be bought using LEGO Studs from Gwenpool in the Avengers Mansion. Other pink bricks have to be earned by successfully completing optional side-missions for Gwenpool.

Stan Lee in Peril

Rescue Stan to earn gold bricks.

Gold Bricks

You will be awarded gold bricks as you progress through the game, but there are also many hidden ones.



How a second player joins the game depends on whether they are using a gamepad or a keyboard.

Joining using a gamepad

Before starting the game, make sure the gamepad is connected to your computer. Press any button on the gamepad during play to activate Player 2. The character icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen will flash several times to confirm that a second player has joined.

Joining using a keyboard

Press the the F2 key key during play to activate Player 2. The character icon in the top right-hand corner of the screen will flash several times to confirm that a second player has joined.

NOTE: If pressing the the F2 key key has no effect, you may need to change your keyboard's default settings. For instructions on how to do this, please see When I press the Function keys (F1-F19) nothing happens. How do I use the Function keys? in the FAQs.

Battle Arenas

Up to four players can play against each other or the computer in the Battle Arenas, challenges separate from the game's main story. To play the Battle Arenas, select Go To Battle Arenas from the in-game Pause menu. Additional players, whether they are using a gamepad or a keyboard, can join a Battle Arena match in the same way as joining the main game.
