From the actual contract Universal is using a character if it "is more than an incidental element of an attraction, is presented as a costumed character, or is more than an incidental element of the theming of a retail store or food facility". Also if they are using one character of a "family" of characters, they have exclusive rights to all the characters.

So they are using Captain America and the Hulk which gives them all of the Avengers, the Storm ride gives them all the X-Men, Spirderman and all the assocaited villians, and Dr Doom gives them Fantastic Four and all thier villains. This pretty much covers every major Marvel character.
