The game background is mainly inspired by the famous comic saga called the Infinity Gauntlet, published in 1991. This gauntlet is wielded by Thanos and allows him to use all the Infinity gems simultaneously.

Marvel Super Heroes was released by Capcom in memory of 'Jack Kirby' (aka 'The King of the Comics') [1917 / 1994] who was the most influential and respected illustrator and creator of comic books, at least of the super-hero/adventure variety. He was so important that, with that field now in recession, some are saying that when Jack Kirby died, he took the industry with him.

* Here are the different gem effects (which acts during a short time) and when you can get them :
Time gem (Red) : You are much more faster than usual.
Space gem (Purple) : Your character get unstoppable with this super armor power.
Soul gem (Green) : Your fighter slowly recovers life.
Power gem (Pink) : Your attacks are more powerful.
Reality gem (Orange, on the fifth opponent) : Your attacks have additional effects which makes them more powerful.
Mind gem (Blue, owned by Thanos) : The character can recover about 2 energy levels in a few seconds.

The gems are owned by different opponents: we have one at the beginning, then the first opponent have the following one then the second, then the third and finally the fifth (the last one is on Thanos). Characters have some special effects using some gems (for instance Magneto got an energy field around him with the Space gem, Spiderman divides himself in two similar being for symmetrical attacks using the Power gem).

Notice that we can only use the first gem in our gem stack. If you press the Start button during the fight, you will change the gem order in your stack, allowing for you to use any desired gem at any time.

When we reach the final fight against Thanos, he steal all the gems and collects them in his gauntlet. He uses them his way (for instance : space gem creates a warp which attracts and throws rocks on his enemy).
