AP, or ability points, is an important mechanic in Marvel Puzzle Quest.

The majority of heroes' abilities are activated based on this number, and are set into cours. For example, Wasp (Janet Van Dyne)'s Yellow power costs 5 AP to activate.

AP is earned by matching tiles in that colour, or on a row matched by 4 tiles in a row.

A number of abilities can also collect AP.
