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 (reporter, Police Officer, or Robber). The island looked like a city.
This party immediately followed the Meteor Strike, in which a Purple Super Hero Meteorite 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, including Iron Man, Thor, Spider-Man, and Iron Fist, and Super Villains such as Venom and Loki, just to name a few.
It also attracted media interest by companies such as USA Today, and Billybob says 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 Purple Super Hero 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.
The tables turned when the Ultimate Proto-Bot 10000 had its powers restored and sought revenge on the Elite Penguin Force. In spite of this, he gathered Super Villains affected by the meteor to assist in his evil plans. Work on a colossal robot began. This robot was Destructobot. On June 14, 2012, the damage had been done. Destructobot had been wreaking havoc on the island, and villains gained the upper hand. The Super Hero teams such as The Avengers worked closely with the Club Penguin Police Department, and the Elite Penguin Force, to put a stop to the growing rate of crime on Club Penguin Island. Suddenly, on July 4, 2012, Destructobot had fallen, and the meteor's energy had faded away. The parts of Destructobot were then taken into EPF custody.

- 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 music hadn't been fixed but the Beacon still needed to be fixed.
- If playing on Windows 7 computers, Club Penguin could've crash due to the high graphics. This has been fixed.
- When the meteor crashed on the island, it could still be seen from the telescope at the Beacon. This glitch was fixed.
- Sometimes, when entering the Snow Forts it will say "Please exit the game before leaving the room." This has been fixed.
- On June 28, when the newest pin was released, the Supervillain Pin, it wasn't available during the very first minutes when Club Penguin was just updating. This was later fixed.
- Another glitch is that the fireworks seen at the Ski Hill and the Iceberg do not have any sound unlike the other times Club Penguin has fireworks.
- After the party, sometimes it would say "Aunt Arctic is Online" despite that she is not going to be on since the party is over.
- This is Club Penguin's first party in collaboration with another company. Disney had the permission to do this party since both Club Penguin and MARVEL are owned by The Walt Disney Company.
- This party was came out a month after the release of the new movie The Avengers, which came out on May 4, 2012.
- If you look closely at the hero costumes, they all seem to have fingers instead of flippers, which is weird as penguins don't have fingers. It is possibly just an artist's impression, or more likely, gloves.
- During this party, the Miners Helmet is available in two places: the Gift Shop and Cave Mine.
- Players were unable to obtain the Stage Crew stamp and the Clock Target stamp during the party, since the Switchbox 3000 and Clock Tower were removed, until the party ended.
- It is the one of the few Club Penguin events to have its own website.
- This is the first time that Non-members could buy clothes in the Gift Shop.
- During the party, you could be tagged as a Super Hero, Super Villain, or Citizen. If you are a hero, will have a gold circle around, a black circle if are you a villain, and just a normal blue circle for citizens.
- Starting June 28th, Fireworks appeared at the Iceberg and Ski Hill in celebration of Canada Day.
- This is 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.
- Technically, the super heroes didn't save Club Penguin at all at the end of the party, it was the EPF who destroyed the meteor, powering down Destructobot.
- Protobot was revived using the meteor's powers.
