HULK - HULK'S REVENGE
Super Heroes is a fighting game developed by Capcom.
Originally released in the arcade in 1995 on the
CPS-2 arcade system, it was later ported to the
Sega Saturn and PlayStation. It features many
superheroes and supervillains from the Marvel
Comics line, including Spider-Man, Doctor Doom,
and the Hulk.
The game is loosely based on the Infinity Gauntlet
storyline, with the heroes and villains battling
each other for the Infinity Gems. The final boss
is Thanos, who steals whatever Gems the player
had collected (at that point, all but the sixth
gem, Mind) and uses them against the player, but
with each gem having a strange, new effect when
used by Thanos.
The game played similar to Capcom's previous Marvel-licensed
fighting game, X-Men: Children of the Atom, but
with a more simplified use of the super combo
gauge, and the addition of the Infinity Gems.
Each Gem could be activated in battle, giving
the user a different power for a few seconds.
In addition, each character had a Gem that they
had a special affinity for, and would get additional
abilities whenever they activated it.
This game was dedicated to the memory of Jack
Kirby, with character artwork based on his old
In order to win a gem from the opponent, a player
must hit him/her with several combos in succession.
Gives the character increased attack strength.
Special users are Spider-Man (creates a duplicate
on the opposite side of the opponent), Captain
America (alters his special attacks into attacks
that would be super-attacks in later games in
the series), Wolverine (causes trails to follow
him and multiply his hits), and Psylocke (creates
a duplicate in front and behind her. The duplicates
can deal damage but are invulnerable).
Speeds up the character's movements. Special users
are Hulk (allows him to rapid-fire his strongest
attacks) and Shuma-Gorath (normal attacks turn
opponents into stone).
Gives the character increased defense. Special
users are Juggernaut (makes him immune to all
attacks, similar to how he was in X-Men: Children
of the Atom) and Magneto (gives him his magnetic
shield, making him immune to all attacks, again
similar to his boss version's move in X-Men: Children
of the Atom).
Causes elemental attacks such as flames, icicles,
and lightning bolts to accompany the character's
regular attacks. Special user is Blackheart (turns
invisible, in addition to the gem's normal effects).
Causes the character to regenerate health. Special
user is Iron Man (adds extra electric damage to
his normal attacks)
Causes the character to regenerate their super
attack gauge. In single-player gameplay, you will
not be able to use it until the final battle,
as Thanos alone holds this gem. To obtain it,
you will have to beat it (and the other five)
out of him with Super Combos.
Thanos super-attacks are named after each gem
he uses for the attack.
Creates a miniature sun
Slows his opponent to half-speed
Opens up a rift in space and drops asteroid fragments
on the opponent
Creates two stone walls that crush the opponent
Shoots an energy pulse that absorbs the opponent's
energy into his own life bar
Causes the opponent's controls to be reversed
for a short period of time.
In reality, Thanos doesn't have to have the gem
to use the corresponding super-attack, but his
attacks are still named for them, and the CPU
won't use the attack without the corresponding
gem, though a player-controlled Thanos can.
Enterprising players have found a few characters
in Marvel Super Heroes who are able to perform
infinite combos (i.e. combos that can be sustained
until a foes lifebar is depleted) that are mostly
unblockable or unavoidable when hit. For instance,
the character of Wolverine is able to attack a
regular-sized foe with a 5-6 hit combo before
launching them into the air for an aerial combo,
continue with a 3-4 hit combo and ending with
a strong punch/kick that brings aerial foes down
to the ground. The instance before hitting the
ground, Wolverine is able to hit grounded foes
and launch again to continue the barrage. Thus
starts the infinite combo system. Spider-Man also
has an infinite combo move utilizing the Spider
Sting. The infinite combo routine is also present
in the sequel, X-Men vs. Street Fighter and has
become a feature that has returned in future installments
like Marvel vs Capcom 2. By that game however,
safeguards reduced their lethality using things
like Damage buffering to reduce infinites to little
or no damage and "Dizzy outs" which
popped a character free if the same chain was
used for over 50 hits.
Captain America uses his shield for most of his
attacks. His stage is New York harbor with the
Statue of Liberty being reconstructed in the background.
The Incredible Hulk (Based on the "Professor"
persona) is a slow, but powerful character. His
attacks involve the use of gamma energy and strength.
His stage is a desolate carnival.
Iron Man uses energy attacks that include beams
and blasts as well as explosives. He can also
fly. His stage is the headquarters of his alter
ego's company, Stark Industries.
Psylocke uses ninjutsu and telepathy ("psi-flash"
projectiles, telepathic illusions, and psychic
blade attacks) like her incarnation in the previous
game. Her stage in this game is the top of a moving
train in Tokyo.
Spider-Man's attacks are based on his web abilities
as well as his great amount of agility. His stage
is on a scaffold that is going up and across the
Daily Bugle building.
Wolverine also has a lot of agility. Like in X-Men:
Children of the Atom, he has moves related to
his powerful brawling and clawing skills. Wolverine's
stage is a wooden bridge somewhere in Canada.
The bridge is breakable and will float on the
raging river below, going down until reaching
a waterfall which the loser of the bout will fall
Blackheart is tall and somewhat slow, but he has
powerful dark magic and demon-summoning attacks.
His stage is hell.
Juggernaut, unlike his previous incarnation, is
faster in this game but has lost much of his strength
and invulnerability. However, he is still slower
than the other characters, he usually ignores
the first hit of any combo, and his attacks can
still devastate the opponent. Like in X-Men: Children
of the Atom, Juggernaut can still pick up objects
from the ground that he can use against enemies.
His stage is an American port.
Magneto is also much weaker in this incarnation
than in X-Men: Children of the Atom. A number
of his attacks that he had when he was a boss
have been taken away. However, like Juggernaut,
Magneto is still very powerful. He has a great
amount of agility, and his attacks are mainly
magnetic and energy-based. He can also fly. Magneto's
stage is Asteroid M as it approaches the Sun.
Shuma-Gorath mainly uses magic attacks as well
as attacks that take advantage of his unique shape.
He can also absorb life energy from another character
with one of his attacks. Shuma-Gorath's stage
is his own domain, the chaos dimension. Shuma-Gorath's
stage also has the distinction of having no walls
once the small stage barrier is broken, preventing
Doctor Doom takes great advantage of his armor's
abilities and uses magical attacks as well. His
armor grants him the ability to do beam and energy
attacks. Doom also has the ability to fly with
his jet packs. His stage is a submarine of his
that starts out at the bottom of the sea and makes
its way to the surface.
Thanos has a great number of attacks, mostly centered
around the gems. While he can use his titanic
strength to do normal attacks against opponents,
he can use the gems to devastate them. Thanos
can perform a super move for each of the six gems.
He also has great agility, which is surprising
for a character of his size. Thanos's stage is
his shrine to Death.
On the arcade version of the game, Dr. Doom or
Thanos can be chosen via a code at the selection
screen. However, if the game is completed with
Thanos, Magneto's ending text will be displayed.
Artwork unique to this ending suggests that a
true ending for him was planned, but not completed.
Thanos has a correct ending in the console ports.
Anita (from the Darkstalkers series, see Donovan
Baine for information on her) appears as a hidden
character in the Japanese version of the game.
She appears to be unfinished, however, since she
has no name under the lifebar, her name isn't
announced at the end of rounds (though it is printed
on the screen), she has Thanos' portrait, win
screen, and win quotes, and she's called Thanos
on the vs. screen. Furthermore, she has no ending.
Instead, if the player beats the game with her,
the credits will be shown twice. Her attacks are
very incomplete. Most of them do not have audio,
and one uses the sprite of Akuma from Super Street
Fighter II Turbo. She also uses Dylec, the sword
of Donovan uses, in her attacks. (Credit: Wikipedia).
