Marvel: Crisis Protocol is a skirmish miniatures game where players form a team of heroes and/or villains to fight against teams set up by an opposing player. Players can freely mix and match any of the available minis for their teams. Miniature kits are hard plastic. The game uses a resource management system to control game flow. Players spend a resource called power to perform attacks and super heroic feats and earn the resource back by taking damage and other in game effects. Power is also used to activate team up moves in the game. The game also features interactive terrain rules which allow for actions like the Hulk smashing buildings or throwing cars.
The Marvel: Crisis Protocol core set will include Captain America, Iron Man, Spider Man, Red Skull, Baron Zemo, and other unannounced characters as well as terrain and the basic rule set.
