— 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, and then on the What's New Blog on March 28, 2013.
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.

- Main article/section: Marvel Catalog#2013
Members could suit up in special Marvel Super Hero and Super Villain Costumes, exclusively during the party.
- It was the first Marvel Super Hero Takeover to occur in the month of April.
- It was an entirely different party compared to the previous year, with new heroes and villains, consisting of more than 25 different costumes, and new locations from the Marvel Universe.
- Villains were able to build robots at the Villain HQ, located in the sewer under the Cove Harbor, by following the Secret Tunnel, to attack the city. These robots were controlled by Protobot and The Mandarin. This further proves that the party was mainly about Iron Man 3, because The Mandarin is the main villain in the film.
- 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.
- The hole leading into the Hidden Lake was removed from the Forest during the party.
- 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.
- There's a glitch if you go into the Villain HQ the music would be playing the theme from Operation Blackout. This glitch has been fixed.
- 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.
- If you log off the log off screen would be from the Prehistoric Party 2013.
- If you wear the Odin Helmet and dance, you would turn old blue and the mask wouldn't move. If you wave it would not move, either.
- If you go to your igloo press the Igloo Contest they will appeared at Holly Jolly Igloo Contest
- On April 28th, you were not able to collect the Brainwave Hero Gloves, which was released on that day. This glitch was fixed the next day.
- On May 1st everyone became a member for a few minutes late at night. This glitch has been fixed.
- Villain HQ - A secret tunnel allows the villains an entrance to the Cove. A giant laser is seen at the top of the room. There is also a chair tied up, with sharks swimming around it. Crystals are lying around the room. Penguins can go behind the screens to give top secret messages to other villains.
- Hero Carrier - The room is floating above the island. The whole of Penguintropolis can be seen from the giant glass window. The color schem of the room is grey/silver. There are many computers around the room. There is also a containment prison, a reference to The Avengers film. Also in the room is a conference table. The room is also a replica of the Avengers Helicarrier.
- Hero Lab - The room has an elevator that takes you back to the Beach. There is a kitchen eating area with many multicolored bottles. Near the kitchen is a lounge area with a lamp and couch. A large panorama window allows heroes to view the city from high up. In the bottom left corner of a room is a lab area, where new Iron Man armor is being invented. In the bottom right corner of the room is the Hall of Armor, where Tony Stark keeps his prized suits of armor. There are three display cases: the Mark 42 Helmet and Mark 42 Armor in the first, the Heartbreaker Helmet and Heartbreaker Armor in the second, and the Silver Centurion Helmet and Silver Centurion Armor in the third. Mechanical hands help the super heroes get their gear on before a mission on a rose platform in front of the Hall of Armor.
- Beach - Cars are parked in front of the Lighthouse, which is now a hospital. Stark Tower is in between the pathways to the Ski Village and Dock. A snow trekker ambulance is parked next to the Lighthouse. There is also a cannon on the other side of the Lighthouse that shoots you to the Hero Carrier, floating above. There is also a launch pad to play Super Hero Bounce. The snow is replaced with a city street.
- Lighthouse - Now a hospital. The same design as the one seen during Operation: Blackout.
- Dock - A burning building is being put out by a Firetruck, though the building is inaccessible. There is also a Club Penguin Fire Department station. The snow is replaced with a city street.
- Town Center - All buildings have been cityfied. The snow is replaced with a city street, and crystals all lying around. The exterior of the Dance Club has a giant record, and the Coffee Shop exterior resembles a bakery, with a giant donut.
- Snow Forts - The snow is replaced with a city street. At the bottom of the room, there is a bus stop and telephone booth. Two buildings are seen, Fragile Things Inc. and Priceless Antiques, though they are inaccessible. A tunnel leads to the Stadium.
- Plaza - The snow is replaced with a city street, and crystals all lying around. All buildings have been cityfied. The Pet Shop has a giant blue puffle on it. The Puffle Hotel is now a tall brick building. The exterior of The Stage looks like a police station, and the exterior of the Pizza Parlor looks like a bank.
- The Stage - Looks like a police station, exactly like 2012. Has front desk, jail, and entrance to the Villain HQ.
- Pizza Parlor - Looks like a bank, exactly like 2012. There is a giant bank vault, and stands to deposit money.
- Forest - Looks like a nature park, with a fountain and zoo exhibits. There is also a picnic, and a small bridge that leads to the Mine Shack. Decorated for Earth Day.
- Cove - Decorated like a city harbor. There is a boardwalk, fish market, and crane to fish out destructables from the water. There is also a secret tunnel to the Villain HQ.
