Find all of the collectible comics and intelligence in Marvel’s Avengers’ campaign

In this Marvel’s Avengers guide, we’ll help you find all of the collectibles in the campaign.

Every level and mission in Marvel’s Avengers is full of things to collect. Our guides focus on the comics and intelligence, since they’re what you need to find and interact with. Collecting comics gives you stat bonuses while fighting, and intelligence gives you lots of story and background information about the world.

Comics and intelligence sitting out in the open (on a table, for example) are the same in every game. We’ll point you to these below. Throughout every level, you might also find collectibles in chests, though these seem to be random. Make sure you open every chest you see.

We’ve organized our Marvel’s Avengers collectibles guide by Steps along the Mission Chain. You’ll see these in the Objectives menu. You can check what you’ve already collected in the Collections menu.
