Needless to say, cards are an important feature in a card battler such as Marvel Snap. But cards are only as good as their abilities allow them. Abilities, or keywords in other card games, are special effects that cards possess that will either give you an advantage or disadvantage your opponents.

In this guide, we'll be explaining all of the abilities in Marvel Snap.
