New Heroes, New Villains, A New Battle.
— The slogan of the party.

The Marvel Super Hero Takeover 2013 was a party in Club Penguin, which occurred from April 25, 2013, to May 9, 2013. It was confirmed by Spike Hike and Polo Field during online meet-ups, then on their Twitter accounts; then on the What's New Blog on March 28, 2013.

Power Crystals were giving everyone powers this time around. Ultimate Proto-Bot 10000 unleashed robot enemies on the city that Super Heroes are needed to face.

It is the second annual Marvel Super Hero Takeover. It involved the Marvel Comics characters from the previous year. The Marvel Catalog returned with new items. Aunt Arctic is waddling around during the party. Club Penguin made this party to promote the new Marvel movie, Iron Man 3.


Crystals appear on the island mysteriously, giving penguins powers. While some choose to use it for good, others choose to cause mass destruction with it.

Its powers restored by the crystals, Ultimate Protobot 10,000, and The Mandarin as his second-in-command, lead an army of robots to destroy the city, as revenge for the defeat of Destructobot. Other Super Villains also join him in his quest to take over Club Penguin Island. Their plan is to turn Club Penguin Island into an advanced technological metropolis, inhabited completely by robots. The Elite Penguin Force will be finished, and Protobot would use its technology. Puffles, games, and pizza would be removed. All penguins would be turned into robots. Herbert and Klutzy would be forced to leave.

Super Hero teams such as The Avengers and the EPF, as well as the Club Penguin Police Department, are called into battle once again to defend the city, and new heroes also appear and offer to help defeat the robot army. Heroes gather at the Hero Carrier to hear orders and come up with battle tactics. Tony Stark (Iron Man)'s home, Stark Tower, is used as a hangout and lab area, where scientists work on new Iron Man armor to use in the fight for justice. Meanwhile, Protobot and his minions are building robots in the Villain HQ to cause mass destruction to the island. As this war rage on, the fate of Club Penguin hangs in the balance.

After two weeks of fighting, Protobot and the crystals disappear, and the rest of the villains are defeated, meaning the island is safe once again.

Join the Marvel Super Hero Takeover in Disney's "Club Penguin" from Apr. 25-May 7 "Last year's partnership event with Marvel was tremendously popular, and at that time became the most-trafficked event in our history," said Chris Heatherly, Vice President and General Manager, Disney Interactive Worlds. "This year we've made the Marvel Super Hero Takeover Event even more epic for players with twice the amount of Marvel super hero and super villain costume options and deeper, more action-packed gameplay and storylines."

"The fan reaction from last year's Marvel Super Hero Takeover was tremendous, so we are excited to once again give fans the opportunity to dress up as their favorite Marvel super heroes in 'Club Penguin,'" said Andreea Enache-Thune, Senior Vice-President of Marvel Games. "This year we were able to expand upon last year's offering by including cool new costumes from our upcoming Marvel animated series on Disney XD."

  • According to the April 2013 Parent Update, Club Penguin Island was known as Penguintropolis during the party.
  • At the Beach, Dock, Snow Forts, and Forest, Power Crystals were lying around, which gave the Super Heroes and Super Villains powers, similar to how the Purple Super Hero Meteorite gave them powers in the last year. These crystals appeared one week before the party, and a Research Station was set up at the Forest to study them.

  • At the Cove, the crane fished out Herbert's chair from Operation: Blackout and Operation: Hot Sauce, and a submarine from Gary's Gadget Room.

  • The interior of the Everyday Phoning Facility and the EPF Command Room were switched back to how they were before construction began, after their destruction in Operation: Blackout, despite the recent update. This glitch has been fixed.
