Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 - How To Unlock Every Character

Take a break and participate in some friendly discussion.


Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3: The Black Order is available now for Nintendo Switch and it brings heroes and villains together to take on Thanos and his minions.

There is a huge roster of characters you can use to build your team of three, but they are all not unlocked from the start. Like past Ultimate Alliance games, most of the characters will be unlocked as you progress through the story.

But there are a few secret characters that you'll need to unlock through other means.

Marvel Ultimate Alliance 3 characters roster

Iron Man

Tony Stark remains one of Marvel’s most popular and successful heroes.

A versatile character in-game, Iron Man is a capable melee fighter who can also deal ranged damage with blasters. He also has his own movement style where he can fly above the ground.

Captain America

Steve Rogers bolsters the ranks of the melee heroes on the Ultimate Alliance 3 roster.

While he’s primarily a close-up-and-personal kind of guy, ranged support comes in the form of his shield throw.


First introduced to the comics all the way back in 1975, Storm is one of the best-known leaders of the X-Men.

Her weather-control powers are better at range than up close, but she’s still a strong ally to add to your team.


Would it be a real co-op Marvel game without classic yellow-and-black suit Wolverine, bub?

Focussing on quick, ferocious close-range combat with his adamantium claws, Wolverine is sure to be a favourite pick with players.

Black Panther

The king of Wakanda has stormed to the top of the Marvel pantheon in no time at all after the release of his smash-hit solo film.

Like Wolverine, Black Panther’s moveset focused around quick and powerful claw attacks.

Captain Marvel

Since her starring role in Civil War 2, Captain Marvel has been having a bit of a moment in Marvel media. Here we have the comic-book Carol Danvers sporting her shorter, quaffed hair-do.

Another versatile attacker, she uses her Photon Punch and Cosmic Burst abilities to devastating effect.


Despite being the internet’s second favourite Asgardian behind his brother Loki, Thor is still a total boss.

Fighting as you’d expect with his signature Mjolnir hammer, here we’ve again got the comic-book costumed version of the character, complete with winged silver helmet.

Star Lord

What the wise-cracking Quill lacks in super-strength, he makes up for in instinct, tactical nouse and bravery. Oh, and laser guns.

Groot & Rocket

In Ultimate Alliance 3, Groot and Rocket fight as a duo with Groot handling the melee bashing and Rocket on guns. Two for the price of one!


Deadpool brings his signature brand of acerbic, fourth-wall-breaking humour to Ultimate Alliance.

That’s not to say he’s no use in a fight though. He’s a talented swordsman, marksman, and martial artist.


Peter Parker is another mainstay of Marvel’s comic continuity, and is a shoe-in to feature heavily in this cross-over. As well as his underrated strength and stamina, Spidey brings his unique web-slinging movement abilities to the fore.

Miles Morales

Well, maybe not that unique. Newbie wall-crawler Miles Morales also makes the roster, and will probably have a similar move-set to Spider-Man, just quicker and lighter due to his size and frame.


If Miles represents the feather-weight side of the Spidey-scale, then Venom brings the beef. The hulking symbiote will surely have similar web-based abilities, but with a more feral edge.
