- No special notes.
Although the game was intended to be the start of a series, it failed critically and financially, canceling future sequels.
It was the first game to be created by an EA and Marvel partnership. It started in 2005 and ended in 2007.
The PSP port is drastically different in both gameplay and style, and even replaces two characters (Human Torch and Daredevil) with Doctor Doom and Captain America.
There was a six issue comic book series based on the Imperfects, intended as a prequel and setup for unfolding events in the game.
In Marvel vs Capcom 3, there is a costume for Spider-Man that is neon green and dark black, nearly identical compared to the "evil" costume Spider-Man has in Marvel Nemesis.
It's been rumored that EA, who published Marvel Nemesis, forced the developers to rush the game so they could make profit off of the series.
