The Marvel Super Hero Takeover 2012 was a party in Club Penguin, which was held from June 14th, 2012 to July 4th, 2012. It was officially confirmed on the UK website of Club Penguin on May 3, 2012. Aunt Arctic was meetable at this party. It was possible to become a Super Hero, a Super Villain, or a citizen.
This party immediately followed the Meteor Strike, in which a meteor that emitted strange glowing purple energy crashed into the Dock. The Destructobot, powered by the meteor and built by Ultimate Proto-Bot 10000, unleashed a whole wave of villains on the island. The Marvel Catalog and Items For Everyone Catalog were available in the Gift Shop with tons of new items. Club Penguin hosted this party to promote the Marvel movies, The Avengers and The Amazing Spider-Man. Members could suit up as many Marvel Super Heroes.
It also attracted media interest by companies such as USA Today, and Billybob said it was one of the biggest events Club Penguin has ever done. He said the team spent double the hours of work they normally do on this party.
On June 7, 2012, a meteorite had crashed into the Dock. The damage was minimal, and no one was hurt. No penguin knew the powers the meteor possessed. Gary the Gadget Guy had been reading the energy from the meteor, and said that its power could be very dangerous. In the next week, many penguins received strange super powers from this meteor, and while some chose to use its power for good, others used it for the path of evil.

“Everyone wants to feel special and believe that they can do something that no one else can do.

- This was Club Penguin's first party in collaboration with another company.
- This was the first time the Stage was specifically decorated for a party and there was no play.
- The music for the party was composed by Screenhog.
- There was a glitch that at the Cove, Beacon, Ski Lodge, Lighthouse, Cave Mine and Night Club that had music playing from the Puffle Party 2012. The Night Club and Lighthouse also had this glitch, but they were not fixed.
- When the meteor crashed on the island, it could still be seen from the telescope at the Beacon. This glitch was later fixed.
- Sometimes, when entering the Snow Forts it would say "Please exit the game before leaving the room." This glitch was later fixed.
- Another glitch was that the fireworks seen at the Ski Hill and the Iceberg did not have any sound, unlike past presentations.
