Through his travels to Oa, Central City, Arkham Asylum, The Fortress of Solitude, etc, etc, he faces off many foes before arriving at The Watchtower where the mastermind is revealed to be Braniac, who is defeated. Doppelganger then becomes good and is given a sister (Doppelily).
NOTE: The game is out but we do not have all the levels. Here are some that have been told/seen though:
|Warning: Spoilers Ahead - Continue at the risk of your own enjoyment.|
|One source describes a linear level beginning in the sewers beneath Wayne Manor where a hungry Killer Croc won’t let Max proceed. When a hamburger isn’t enough, a dynamite sandwich sends Croc into a rage leading to his arrest. Robin keeps the situation under control, allowing Max to make his way inside Wayne Manor (where Batman has been manipulated by The Joker) before discovering Batgirl’s capture in the Batcave.
In another situation, Max encounters two police officers, and must decipher which one is legit and which is actually Clayface. An X-ray exposes the villain, and when handcuffs fail to stop the sludge-monster, a freeze-gun does the trick.
In the final mission, It is required to type in Doppelily to accomplish the mission.
Story missions are shown to mostly include Maxwell's nemesis Doppleganger accompanying a DC Comics villain and attack certain heroes prompting Maxwell to undo Doppleganger's actions.

The Hero Creator is mode in Scribblenauts Unmasked and is a improved version of the Object Editor from Scribblenauts Unlimited. It allows players to create their own Superheroes or Villains by using other pieces of Objects or just Objects that is in Scribblenauts Unmasked. It also allows players to add powers and abilities of DC comics characters to their custom object. For an example, you can use Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) as your Base Object, then you can delete his Head and Arms and replace them with Batman's Head and Arms, then color Batman's Mask Green and his Gloves Green, then just save the Object and name it something like: "Green Lantern Batman" (or, for more hardcore fans, "In Darkest Knight Batman"). You can also Share your Objects by Uploading them to Steam/Online. The Hero Creator is not in the 3DS Version of the game.
