*The Human Torch can manipulate fire. He usually allows his entire body to be engulfed in flames considering his body can sustain the highest levels of heat. Another ability of his is flight in which players can use in the game.cite web|url= http://www.marvel.com/universe/Human_Torch_%28Johnny_Storm%29 |title=Human Torch Biography|accessdate=2007-07-06 ]

Music

The game is notable for having four bands record brand new songs to be used as the themes for the characters. The bands who contributed songs and who their song was for are:
* "Taking Back Sunday " 'Error Operator' (Mr. Fantastic)
* "Go Betty Go " 'Invisible' (Invisible Woman)
* "The Explosion" 'I'm On Fire' (Human Torch)
* "Jurassic 5" 'Clobberin' Time' (The Thing)

Taking Back Sunday's 'Error Operator' was also the only song composed for the game to appear on the film's soundtrack - It also appears in the film during the scene where The Thing goes into a bar. The song was re-worked for the band's 2006 album "Louder Now". In the game an instrumental version is used.
