Marvel Super Heroes (マーヴル・スーパーヒーローズ) is a versus fighting game developed and published by Capcom for the Sega Saturn. It features characters from the Marvel Comics universe and can be seen as a sequel to X-Men: Children of the Atom.

Marvel Super Heroes is notable for being the only game released outside of Japan which supports the Extended RAM Cartridge. It was not advertised as being compatible (as the peripheral was not released in the west) but maintains compatibility regardless.
