Best Marvel Comics Tabletop RPGs
Officially Licensed RPGs (Multiple)
These games are all officially licensed by Marvel Comics, and so have the advantage of being able to include Marvel heroes, villains, items, etc. (and their stats).
Unofficial (But Still Great for Marvel) Super Hero RPGs (Multiple)
Because these games aren't licensed by Marvel, they can only describe generic heroes, forcing GMs to recreate any Marvel ones themselves.
However, while many official licensees seemed more focused on making money than making good games, the creators of these games were free to follow their passion for creating great super hero games, and so some fans may prefer them over the licensed games.
