After you reach the end of the “I Want to Be An Avenger” story mission, it transitions into The Light That Failed. This will be your second main story mission in Marvel’s Avengers. In “The Light That Failed” mission you play as all 5 Avengers – Thor, Iron Man, Captain America, and Black Widow. This is pretty much a tutorial mission that gives you a feel for heroes and their abilities. In this guide, I will explain how to complete Marvel’s Avengers “The Light That Failed” main mission.
Marvel’s Avengers The Light That Failed Walkthrough – How to Play Thor, Iron Man, Black Widow, and Captain America
The mission starts with a brief cutscene that shows the bridge under attack, setting up the events of A-Day. Iron Man and Thor rush to the bridge as you take control of the God of Thunder. Thor will be your first playable character in Marvel’s Avengers.
Clear the Bridge As Thor
The bridge is under attack and the Reapers are threatening the lives of many. Thor lands on the bridge and you take control. As Thor, your first objective is to clear all the Reapers. It is a very linear section so you won’t a hard time completing it. Use Thor’s hammer to defeat the Reapers. As you move forward, a barrier blocks your way but use Thor’s heavy attack to smash it and make way.
Defeat the Flying Enemies As Iron Man
After Thor, you will take control of none other than Iron Man. The game guides you through his flying and combat controls. As Iron Man, your objective is to defeat the flying enemies. You Iron Man’s blasters to take them down.
Even if you are playing on PC I highly recommend you use a controller for Marvel’s Avengers. It is next to impossible to control Iron Man with a Mouse and Keyboard. After defeating the flying enemies, Iron Man must take on the turrets. Use Iron Man’s beam to destroy the turrets.
Defeat the Reapers and Tanks As Hulk
After Iron Man, you will take control of none other than Hulk. The one job Hulk has is to smash! Make your way through the bridge taking down the Reapers and Tanks.
Defeat Enemies on the Chimera As Captain America
In the next section of “The Light That Failed” you will play as my personal favorite, Captain America. Cap is on the Chimera. Multiple enemies will enter through the door in waves, Captain America will use his shield and melee combat abilities. His section is the most interesting out of all 5 Avengers.
Defeat the Taskmaster As Black Widow
Black Widow goes up against the first boss of Marvel’s Avengers, the Taskmaster. The first phase of Taskmaster is QTE so all you need to do is jump away and shoot when you both reach the top of the bridge. Phase 2 is a bit more challenging.
You check out the Taskmaster guide to understand how to beat the Taskmaster. Once you defeat the Taskmaster you’ll complete Marvel’s Avengers The Light That Failed.
