This is the one with the gems. I don't like the gems. I'm writing this to myself so I won't keep forgetting this is that one. : P
It's a fighting game in what would become known as Capcom's "vs. series," although this one doesn't actually have a "vs" cross-over between characters from separate publishing universes--it just has characters from Marvel's line of super-hero comics. Including that darn Iron Man with his cheapo 360-degree "repulsor" blast. ; P
And there are these "Infinity Gems" (silly ultra-powerful MacGuffins from Marvel comics) that you pick up to give your character additional power in a fight, but if the other character hits you hard enough, the gem pops out and THEY can pick it up; so there's a lot of scrambling around for gems and dropping them and picking them back up, and it's all pretty annoying.

Like the arcade version in Marvel vs. Capcom Origins on PS3, this one flashes the screen solid red for a frame when you score a hit while carrying an active Power gem--unless you're Wolverine, Psylocke, or Spider-Man (and not sure about Thanos).
In this version you can supposedly turn gems off by having both players hold Select after choosing their character when going into VERSUS--but that only works in VERSUS, and there doesn't seem to be any vs COM option.
