Marvel Heroes Omega DLC Spider-Man Homecoming

If you're going to buy characters for Marvel Heroes Omega, you'll want to get the best deal.

Marvel Heroes Omega is a free to play MMO that recently launched on Xbox One. Although you can play the whole game for free, several characters are available to buy in DLC bundles. This guide describes the contents of each DLC and exactly how much their components are worth!

Daredevil

Marvel Heroes Omega DLC Daredevil

All Marvel Heroes Omega players receive enough free Eternity Shards at the end of the tutorial to buy one starter character. But you can get Daredevil for free too by picking him up from the Xbox Store.

Daredevil doesn't include any special bonuses or come with extra costumes, but you'll still be able to take him all the way up to level 60 and make twenty percent progress towards the Super Team Achievement for leveling give heroes to 60.

War Machine Pack

Marvel Heroes Omega DLC War Machine

The cheapest premium character is Iron Man's sidekick James Rhodes, also known as War Machine. This pack includes:

  • War Machine character: Exclusive to the War Machine Pack.
  • Civil War Movie Costume for War Machine.
  • 1 XP Boost: A $1 value.
  • 500G premium currency: A $5 value.

Because War Machine can't be bought any other way, the main appeal of this pack is the exclusiveness of the character. But you get an extra costume (that looks better than the default one, in my opinion) and five dollars worth of currency that you can turn around and spend on another character or inventory upgrades.

The War Machine Pack does not contribute towards the Iron Fist and Symbiote Spider-Man bonuses, but that should only matter if you were planning on spending a ton of money to qualify for the bonuses anyway.

The War Machine Pack costs $16.99, making it a slightly better value than the Deadpool and Spider-Man packs.

Deadpool Founder's Pack

Marvel Heroes Omega DLC Deadpool

Most of the Founder's Packs value a single character and items bundle at $20. That applies to the Deadpool Founder's Pack, which contains:

  • Deadpool character: A $13.50 value if bought with premium G currency through the in-game store.
  • Zen Costume for Deadpool: AKA Zenpool, this costume debuted in Deadpool Vol 3 #38 when an inversion spell caused Deadpool's pacifistic side to take over his body.
  • 1 XP Boost: A $1 value.
  • 500G premium currency: A $5 value.

If you factor in the cost of the character and 500G of currency, you're basically getting an extra costume and XP boost for $1.50 extra. Considering the popularity of the character and his surprisingly good movie, many players will find this pack worth the price of admission.

The Deadpool Founder's Pack costs $19.99.

Spider-Man: Homecoming Founder's Pack

Marvel Heroes Omega DLC Spider-Man

Like the Deadpool Founder's Pack, you get one character with this pack. The bonuses are different, though, and arguably more compelling.

  • Spider-Man character: A $13.50 value.
  • Homecoming Suit for Spider-Man: Wear Spidey's Stark-upgraded suit from the (awesome) movie.
  • Homemade Suit: Wear Spidey's homemade suit from Spider-Man: Homecoming.
  • 2 Spidey Loot Boxes: A $5 value.
  • 2 XP Boosts: A $2 value.
  • 500G premium currency: A $5 value.

Instead of 500G currency, the Spider-Man Founder's pack gives you two loot boxes worth 500G. Sure, you don't get to spend some Gs on whatever you want, but you might get something cool from those boxes. Besides, the extra costume is a sweet incentive, because costumes don't grow on trees in this game.

The Spider-Man: Homecoming Founder's Pack costs $19.99.

Guardians of the Galaxy Founder's Pack

Marvel Heroes Omega DLC Guardians of the Galaxy

This pack contains two characters (three if you count Rocket and Groot as two) and bonuses that represent the same basic value as the Deadpool and Spider-Man packs.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Founder's Pack contains:

  • Star-Lord character: A $9 value.
  • Rocket Raccoon character: A $13.50 value.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Costume for Star-Lord.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy Movie Enhanced Costume for Rocket Raccoon.
  • Guardians of the Galaxy 2 Movie Enhanced Costume for Rocket Raccoon.
  • 5 XP Boosts: A $4.50 value.
  • 1000G premium currency: A $10 value.

A slightly better deal than the Deadpool pack, the Guardians pack includes one extra costume and three extra XP boosts compared to that pack. For $40, you're getting two great characters (plus Groot helps Rocket with several of his moves), three bonus costumes, and enough currency to buy one or two extra characters. Maybe you could grab Angela, who is a Guardian in the comics.

The Guardians of the Galaxy Founder's Pack costs $39.99.

X-Men Founder's Pack

Marvel Heroes Omega DLC X-Men

Here's where things really get expensive. Both the X-Men and Avengers packs cost sixty bucks, but they include so much stuff that they end up being a pretty good deal.

The X-Men Founder's Pack includes:

  • Beast character: A $9 value.
  • Iceman character: A $9 value.
  • Jean Grey character: A $13.50 value.
  • Psylocke character: A $9 value.
  • Storm character: A $9 value.
  • Wolverine character: A $13.50 value.
  • Astonishing Beast Costume: Debuted in Joss Whedon's excellent Astonishing X-Men series.
  • All-New X-Men Costume for Iceman: Debuted in All-New X-Men by Brian Michael Bendis.
  • New X-Men Costume for Jean Grey: Debuted in New X-Men by Grant Morrison.
  • Lady Mandarin Costume for Psylocke: Debuted in Uncanny X-Men Vol. 1 #256, in which Psylocke was brainwashed into becoming a villain for a short time.
  • Astonishing Storm Costume: Also debuted in Astonishing X-Men.
  • Classic Brown Costume for Wolverine: Debuted in X-Men Vol. 1 #140.
  • 10 Combination Boosts: A $25 value.
  • 2000G premium currency: A $20 value.

Marvel Heroes Omega DLC X-Men

So that's six characters, six bonus costumes, $20 of currency, and ten high-value boosts for sixty bucks. The characters alone would be $63 if purchased separately. It's still a lot to spend, but with all these mutants, you might as well think of it like you're buying an X-Men game that happens to include other Marvel characters. You could even put that currency towards a fellow X-Man or two such as Cyclops, Colossus, Kitty Pryde, and Magik, who aren't included in the pack.

The X-Men Founder's Pack costs $59.99.

Avengers Founder's Pack

Marvel Heroes Omega DLC Avengers

At the same price as the X-Men pack, the Avengers Founder's Pack includes:

  • Black Widow character: A $4.50 value.
  • Captain America character: A $9 value.
  • Hawkeye character: A $4.50 value.
  • Hulk character: A $4.50 value.
  • Iron Man character: A $ value.
  • Thor character: A $9 value.
  • Age of Ultron Movie Costume for Black Widow.
  • Age of Ultron Movie Costume for Captain America.
  • Age of Ultron Movie Costume for Hawkeye.
  • Age of Ultron Movie Costume for Hulk.
  • Age of Ultron Mark-43 Costume for Iron Man.
  • Age of Ultron Mark-43 Costume for Thor.
  • 10 Combination Boosts: A $25 value.
  • 2000G premium currency: A $20 value.

Marvel Heroes Omega DLC Avengers

This pack gets you six Avengers, their Age of Ultron movie costumes, $20 of currency, and ten high-value boosts for sixty bucks. The only thing that makes the Avengers pack a bit of a worse deal than the X-Men pack is several of these characters cost less than the X-Men characters when bought separately. Still, for sixty bucks, it's basically like buying an Avengers game – and you still have $20 worth of currency for extra characters or inventory slots.

The Avengers Founder's Pack costs $59.99.

Iron Fist and Symbiote Spider-Man

Marvel Heroes Omega DLC Iron Fist Symbiote Spider-Man

As the store descriptions put it, committed, hardcore players who buy all five Founder's Packs get a dedicated fan bonus that includes:

  • Iron Fist character.
  • Symbiote Spider-Man Costume.

Both rewards are timed exclusives, meaning you'll be able to buy Iron Fist separately and win the Symbiote costume at some point in the future. Iron Fist is a great character (despite what the Netflix show would have you believe), but he doesn't come with his green costume, and his moves are a little buggy at present on Xbox One. Don't feel too disadvantaged just because you can't afford $200 worth of Founder's Packs!

True believers assemble!

Marvel Heroes Omega Xbox One

Out of the Marvel Heroes Omega DLC packs available at launch, it's the War Machine, Spider-Man: Homecoming, and X-Men packs that offer the most bang for your buck. But you should really just buy the pack(s) that contain your favorite characters. Most of us can't afford to grab every single character, but remember: Marvel Heroes is an MMO. How many characters will you really spend time playing?

Assuming you fall in love with the game as I did while preparing our review, buying a DLC pack is a great way to support the continued development of the game. If Marvel Heroes Omega thrives on Xbox One, we're sure to see more characters, costumes, and missions in the future. Since the base game is free, what have you got to lose?
