Marvel Contest of Champions Tier List

Marvel Contest of Champions has an incredible roster of over 200 superheroes (called champions), derived from the franchise’s main entries.

With such a huge champion pool available, it’s hard to know which ones are worth investing in and keeping for that difficult endgame content.

To make it easier for new players, we’ve created a definitive tier list for all champions available. This ranks them according to their viability for the game’s latter parts, where proper optimization is essential to clear.

With all that out of the way, let’s dive right into the list

Note: Certain figures in the Signature Ability section are denoted by “X”. These are variable numbers that scale depending on the champion’s level.
