Finish the story on a hard playthrough.

This achievement seems impossible at first, but with the right team its not that hard.

The first thing you should do is finishing the story to unlock this difficulty. I would advice to finish the game at the first time on easy, while picking up every collectible. While ur at it, only have 1 hero at a time on the "team", to unlock the second and third costume, since some heroes (and villains) need one of those for the hard playthrough, due to their boosts. If you play with all 4 on easy, the ai gets kills too easy, making raking up kills as player taking much longer.
Every time you finish a level and come back to the hub, play all Simulation Disks you've picked up so far, since some get really hard when the hero is a higher lvl (looking at blade and ghost rider). Try to get at least bronze for the 4th costume, in most (if not all) you can just fast forward to the endboss and nab that low medal.
When you finished Dr. Doom in Act V, make sure you save one last time in the Doom-Stark hub after the credits.

Once you've unlocked hard mode, start a new game from the save you've created and you're good to go.

Tips for hard mode:

- The most important factor for success is the team. Make sure you have at least 1 hero with a boost, that decreases received damage (e.g. Captaim America), 1 for decreasing energy use (Iron Man) and 1 to increase damage that your team does (Deadpool). The 4th character should either be somebody with a power slowing down time (Spider-Man), or even better: use Moon Knight with his Nunchuk power. With Iron Man's boost to save energy and Deadpool's damage multiplier (the same boost also increases speed) Moon Knight feels like cheating, since his Nunchuks also increase attack speed with every hit. Especially bosses, with their long health bar, suffer from this.
- From lvl 30 and up, all boosts last more than 2 minutes and the ground below your heroes shows colours for all active boosts (Iron Man = blue light, Cap's power makes 2 red orbs circle around u, Dead Pool's boost shows a red light, which alternates every second with Iron Man's). As soon as one boost stops, cycle through all heroes and reactivate their boosts.
- Should any hero, other than Moon Knight go down, better retaliate to the hub via portal and wait the 5 min. You need his/her boost! When Moon Knight goes down, use Deadpools dual gun attack, as its the next best power in your pack.
- Use a costume, that fits the hero best. My advice: Moon Knight = Classic, Deadpool = Ultimate, Iron Man = Classic, Captain America = Ultimate (Spider Man = Classic)
Put at least 4 points per ability in every costume (=12 points per hero).
- DON'T pick up every item and DON'T kill every enemy! On hard its better to rush every level and go to the next area asap, wouldn't wanna be pinned into a corner and restart from the last checkpoint, right?
- Save at every SAP!

Good luck =)
