Different eras and alternate realities collide, inflicting Marvel heroes from all totally different instances and locations to occupy the identical area. Now they have to all group up collectively to defeat Kang.
When you’ve performed a LEGO recreation, you may know the essential setup nicely. A bit of easy hack and slash fight, primary puzzle fixing by the use of constructing wanted gadgets out of LEGO bricks, and a whole lot of environmental destruction into to seek out each single collectible stud you possibly can.
