The basic gameplay of the Marvel vs. Capcom series was originally derived from X-Men: Children of the Atom and Marvel Super Heroes. Players compete in battle using characters with unique moves and special attacks. Using a combination of joystick movements and button presses, players must execute various moves to damage their opponent and deplete their life gauge, or alternatively, have the most cumulative health when the timer runs out. However, unlike the two aforementioned games, which focus on single combat, the Marvel vs. Capcom series revolve around tag team-based combat. Instead of choosing a single character, players select multiple characters to form teams of two or three. Each character on the team is given their own life gauge. Players control one character at a time, while the others await off-screen. Players are also free to swap between their characters at any point during the match. As characters take damage, portions of their life gauge will turn red, known as "red he...
There does not appear to be a concrete story behind each game in the series (up until Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite), although several plot points run across the various games of the series. However, various pairs of characters - typically one Marvel and one Capcom, were often partnered with each other during game play (although later games randomized the partnerships so that it was possible to complete the game facing all-Marvel or all-Capcom teams). Marvel vs. Capcom: Infiniteis the first game in the series to feature a proper story mode. Throughout the earlier games, several interesting subplots emerge exclusively to the series, some of which contradict the others: 1. Psylocke is the one who rescues the amnesiac Cammy, who lost her memory after the battle with Apocalypse in X-Men vs. Street Fighter, from The Hand and its leader, Matsu'o Tsurayaba. 1. Zangief and Colossus defend Russia against Omega Red. In one ending, Omega Red apparently kills Ryu, prompting Kento also seek reveng...
Capcom's partnership with Marvel Comics began in 1993 with the release of The Punisher, an arcade beat 'em up based on the comic book series of the same name. Capcom then created their first Marvel-licensed fighting game, X-Men: Children of the Atom, in 1994. Marvel Super Heroes soon followed in 1995. Many of the gameplay mechanics used in the Marvel vs. Capcom series were first developed and refined in these two fighting games, serving as precursors to the series.In 2011, then-current Capcom USA Strategic Marketing Director of Online and Community Seth Killian stated that many fighting game aficionados, including himself, consider them to have laid the foundation for the series. The idea for implementing tag teams was allegedly inspired by an easter egg from Capcom's own 1995 fighting game Street Fighter Alpha: Warriors' Dreams. In a secret "Dramatic Battle" mode, two players, controlling Ryu and Ken, were able to fight against an AI-controlled M. Bison at the same time. The easter...

The gameplay of Marvel vs. Capcom: Armageddon is similar to the one from Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. Players must knock out the opposing team by repeatedly attacking the opponent and draining their health bar. Armageddon features 3-9 on 3-9 partner battles, similar to Marvel vs. Capcom: Clash of Super Heroes and earlier installments in the franchise. Armageddon utilizes a "free-form" tag system, known as "Active Switch", which shares similarities with Marvel vs. Capcom 3's "Team Aerial Combo" system and Street Fighter X Tekken's "Switch Cancel" system. Players can immediately switch between their team members at any point, even while mid-air or during attack animations. This provides players with the abilities to create their own offensive or defensive assists through the tag system and form continuous combos between their characters. As of August 22, 2019, this fighting game now features two more modes: Tournament and Survival. In Tournament Mode players compete on a single elimin...Single PlayerVersus (3-9 on 3-9)Tournament ModeTraining
Three years after the defeat of Ultron Sigma (who was previously the final boss of Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite), Marvel vs. Capcom: Armageddon features the story mode called Story Mode: World of Corruption where the player can travel through the story, awakening the fighters, defeating red (for Marvel characters) and blue (for Capcom characters) Corruptor Clones, completing many stages, missions and winning mini-games to defeat the almighty Mar-Com Corruptor (literally, the Marvel-Capcom Corruptor), a corruptor of two worlds who threatens to corrupt the worlds of the Marvel and Capcom universes so that it can combine them into one corrupted planet. As the final boss since Arcade mode, the Mar-Com Corruptor gains a true form after absorbing all of the infinity gems and the spirit crystals of the past bosses from each Marvel vs. game including Yellow Devil, Rathalos and Yami from the Capcom games, whom the player must defeat. The Mar-Com Corruptor can use a variety of special moves us...
