When adding a friend in Marvel: Avengers Alliance, they become the player's Ally in the game. They appear on the player's Allies Bar at the bottom of the game screen. In the Facebook version, players can send and accept Ally Requests from their Facebook friends.
On Facebook version, Allies are listed by clicking the ALLIES button on the menu bar located on the top of the game screen and views the allies page. A player can have an unlimited number on their Allies List. However, only the top Allies based on level can be visited. On the Allies page, players can invite friends and have the option of removing players from their Ally List by selecting an ally and click Remove Ally on the Allies box.
The Allies Bar can be seen while on the Flight Deck, Missions, or PVP screen, located at the bottom tray of the game screen. It displays one Invite and four Allies per page. Players can see their allies in this bar along with their allies' name, profile picture (partially covered by Group Boss when their Group Boss is present), current Agent level, current PVP Tournament league (while the season is ongoing) and Distress Calls.
Clicking on any ally, except Tony Stark, views their Profile, displaying their Agent name, level, current PVP stats, current equipment, heroes recruited and PVP Tournament history. The order of the players' allies are by Level, from the lowest-leveled player on the left to the highest towards the right and Tony Stark is at rightmost.
By default, Tony Stark is the first Ally players will get in the game. He is at Level 20, and his Distress Call will call various heroes.

Aside from various Items obtained from visiting allies, players can obtain Distress Calls from allies. Distress Calls can only be obtained in this manner.
Distress Calls can be used in combat to call in allies' Agent or one of their heroes to help the player in his/her battle against his/heropponents. For Tony Stark, he can summon a random hero, while the others summon an Agent. If the Agent is unable to use any Gear, may attack with Brawl. Only one character gets called in per combat, and only one Distress Call can be used per combat. The more allies a player has, the more Distress Calls they can obtain. For list of hero attacks from Distress Calls, see here.
Only one Distress Call can be collected from each ally each day. Players cannot receive another Distress Call from the same Ally if the first Distress Call isn't used yet. Distress Calls cannot be used if the Agent has been KO'ed in combat.
In Strike Team, while the Agent is absent, heroes may use the Distress Calls.
As of November 21, 2014 Patch Notes, all Distress Call Agent weapons are now scaled to the player's Agent level.
Flight Deck Staffing with Allies
Main Article: Flight Deck
Players can hire their allies to become a staff member in their Flight Deck Remote Ops jets. This is required for players to upgrade their jets to the next level. The number of allies required varies on the level of the current jet. Allies that accept these requests receive a bonus amount of Silver as a reward, in addition to the optional gift the player can send to their ally for accepting the request.
Redeem Reward from Allies
At Story and Special Operations Missions Maps, players will often see a structure with their Allies' picture indicating a claimable reward. This reward is always 1 S.H.I.E.L.D. Point. A player can claim amounts of these reward depending on the number of times the players' Distress Call was used by their Allies.
