Welcome to Marvel Ultimate Alliance 2! All our favorite heroes are together again to save the world... from themselves. This is an awesome game, which is good since you'll need to complete it twice to reach your platinum. I hope the following guide helps you out. If you have any questions or comments let me know!
STEP ONE: Complete the game on Super Heroic. Overall, this game is not very difficult, but there will be some challenging sections. During this playthrough you should focus primarily on staying alive! The Undefeated Heroes and Immortal Heroics can be earned in your Super Heroic playthrough. (If you do die however, don't fret, missions are stackable with your Legendary run, and can be made up in the Simulator.) In addition to the bulk of your Story-Based trophies, you may also want to use this run to work on: Tactical Training, Seek and Destroy, Uncontained Aggression, Old Friends, the Item Collection trophies, the Trivia trophies, and the Co-op trophies. You should also look at running the Simulator Challenges now since the difficulty here also increases in Legendary.(Thanks to Clin_Diesel for the tip!)
STEP TWO: Start a New Game + on Legendary and complete the game again! You'll keep all your stats, characters, etc. Use this run to make up any failed levels/bosses from last playthrough. Early on, you'll want to work for Back in Action on missions you've already successfully completed. Make sure to choose the opposite side of the Registration Act this time. Shortly after you choose sides, you may want to take a break and spend some time on Costume Collector, Powers of Two, United We Stand, and any of the Training trophies you may still be lacking!
STEP THREE: Clean up! Once you've finished on Legendary, ALL missions are open to you (Pro and Anti-Reg). Replay missions through the Simulator to collect missed items and run through any Simulator Challenges you haven't finished with your now maxed out squad. Congrats on your Platinum!!!

It's baaaack!!! After six and a half months of being absent from the PSN Store, this DLC made a miraculous return to the Store until the end of 2010. All of these are Simulator Missions. They'll be at the very bottom of the list when you look at it. You can do them in any order that you wish. Some of these you can combine into the same playthrough, but the two trophies for Balance should be done separately. It's too difficult and frustrating to try and get both on the same playthrough. Each simulator mission is pretty short, so playing through them once or twice just to get a feel for them is ideal. Here's a brief summary on what to expect from each simulator mission:
Insidious Alliance - You'll be fighting waves of four superheroes/super villains. The first wave is one at a time, but after that, each wave is timed. There are also hazards on the floor that you have to worry about (fire, electricity, ice, etc.). If that wasn't enough, you're being timed. Recommendation: 1-2 playthroughs. Use the Natural Forces team, Thor, Jean Grey, Storm, and Human Torch.
Escort Duty - You have to escort a robot through a series of hallways and rooms. You'll have to contend with robots, both large and small, and various other hazards (electric panels, flamethrower turrets, machine gun turrets, and proximity mines). Recommendation: 1 playthrough. Use the Natural Forces team, Thor, Jean Grey, Storm, Human Torch. Iron Fist is also good for his healing ability. Wolverine is another solid choice as well.
Balance - Side scrolling level where you have to make it to the end, but you're trapped between two force fields that will severely damage your health. Recommendation: 2 playthroughs. Use the Natural Forces team, Thor, Jean Grey, Storm, and Human Torch.
Overload - Magneto and robots. He'll throw projectiles at you and spawn robots to fight you. That's about it. Recommendation: 1 playthrough. Jean Grey, Wolverine, Juggernaut, and Storm. Gambit and Iceman are also good choices because of the Targeted Fusions.
