Players will take turns doing as many Actions as they wish, or can perform, with either of their two characters.
Each Action has a particular Energy Cost that must be paid in order to be performed.
The general objectives of the game are to Attack the Enemies (first the Villains, later the Supervillains and finally the Menace) and also clear the Incidents.
While doing so, players earn EXP that can be spent to upgrade their Energy cards, Abilities, etc.
After each players turn, they also take Damage Cards and new Incidents appear in the City.
