How to Fix Villain Sectors Locked – Current Hero in a Mission Marvel’s Avengers Issue
To fix the Villain Sector Locked issue in Marvel’s Avengers, the one where the game tells you that the current hero is in a mission, you simply have to continue playing through the main campaign. See, certain heroes in the game only unlock after you complete a specific campaign mission. You can find more detailed info on that in our Unlock Thor, Captain America, Iron Man in Marvel’s Avengers guide. Fortunately, you don’t have to complete the entire campaign, just the specific missions.
Once you get access to the hero necessary to play the Villain Sector that’s been giving you trouble, you should be good to go. Head into the Avengers Initiative, find your faction leader at the outpost, and accept the quest. If you’ve done everything correctly, the sector should open up for you. Once more for the cheap seats in the back: play the main campaign until you unlock the hero you need for the locked sector.
