Marvel Contest of Champions has over 200 characters from the Marvel universe, with more to come as the game gets updated. In our Marvel Contest of Champions Tier List, we rank each character in the game depending on how viable they are in the current meta.

With such a vast roster of champions, gamers may be confused as to which character to choose from. In the Tier list, it’s simple for gamers to choose a character based on:

  • S-Tier: Overpowered Champions!
  • A-Tier: A fantastic performance with a few flaws.
  • B-Tier: Average performance.
  • C-Tier: Champions who perform at a Below-Average level.
  • D-Tier: It’s really hard to win with these Characters
  • E-Tier: Worst Performance Overall

Without further ado, let’s look at the Marvel Contest of Champions Tier List.

S-Tier

Mcoc Tier list

Our S-tier comprises the strongest champions to choose from. This layer of champions is the most effective, strong, and valuable, as well as the most adaptive, of all the tiers.

Cosmic Ghost Rider

Playing Cosmic Ghost Rider is like a Buffed version of “Choose Your Adventure.” Buffs are triggered by various actions, while Judgments are triggered by Buffs. He is chasing Judgments since they raise the Duration of future Buffs until he consumes them and the circle begins again.

Controlling the sequence in which Cosmic Ghost Rider’s Buffs are activated is crucial to getting the most out of the high-impact buffs and then combining them with Armor Breaks to maximize their potential.

Hercules

Hercules is a damage-dealing machine that focuses on smart fighting by executing Feats of Strength and intercepting with Special Attacks to inflict the ultimate flex on his foe! As Hercules completes Feats, he obtains a huge increase in his base damage output and may significantly lengthen the duration of all buffs.

Hyperion

Hyperion blasts lethal rays of tremendous heat from his eyes. Each hit from the Special Attack has an X% chance of Incinerating the target, delivering X% of Hyperion Attack as Energy Damage over 10 seconds. While this effect is active, it also eliminates Perfect Block Chance and decreases Block Proficiency by 50%.

Hyperion is a single-fight ramp-up champion who, like many Cosmic heroes, obtains a slew of bonuses as the battle progresses.

Nick Fury

Throughout the fight, Nick Fury is continually accumulating tactical charges. The more he possesses, the more skills he can use, making him a greater threat as the battle progresses. Nick’s disguise also allows him to skip death once every mission, giving him access to some tremendously high damage potential in his actual form.

Nick fits seamlessly into numerous team combinations by offering outstanding utility. He is a formidable leader with a lot of team synergy. He is among the top-tier characters in the Marvel Contest Champions Tier list.

Kitty Pryde

Kitty’s gameplay revolves around rushing back and forth to Phase through opposing assaults, preventing receiving damage, and inflicting massive bursts of damage to the opponent!

For Kitty Pryde, staying Phased as much as possible is the name of the game, and those who can do so efficiently will push her to the next level and get the most out of her gear.

Magneto

Magneto has ascended to the throne of Prowess and Blood in The Contest. He is an excellent character with great moves which do tons of damage and help you on your way to victory.

Colossus

Colossus is a Champion from Mutant Class. He dishes out great damage to the Skill Champions since he possesses a Class Bonus against them as a Mutant Champion, but he can be damaged badly by Tech Champions.

Diablo

Diablo has entered The Contest, driven by an unquenchable ambition to become as strong as a god. He has a pretty good moveset and his abilities can help you do significant damage to your opponent.

Doctor Doom

Doctor Doom is a champion from the Mystic Class. He possesses a Class Bonus against Cosmic Champions as a Mystic Champion, but he is susceptible to Science Champions. He is the all-rounder Marvel Contest of Champions character in the entire tier list.

Quake

Daisy Johnson, alias Quake, had her earth-shaking abilities unexpectedly awakened while she was a teenager as a result of her mother’s Inhuman lineage. S.H.I.E.L.D. took notice of her destructive abilities, and Nick Fury took her under his wing to teach and nurture her.

She is one of S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most competent and powerful agents due to her ability to accurately target seismic waves.

Human Torch

Johnny got the power to make and control fire when their ship was exposed to cosmic radiation. He can encase his body in plasma, giving him the capacity to fly, in addition to releasing tremendous flame blasts. The Human Torch is a champion from the Science Class.

He possesses a Class Bonus against Mystic Champions as a Science Champion, but he is susceptible to Skill Champions.

Archangel

Archangel is a Champion from the Mutant class who works with 9 other characters to build synergy. He has three variants which go from 3-Star up to 5-Star. He is one of the best Marvel Contest of Champions in the entire tier list.

Shang-Chi

Shang-Chi performs Wushu Strikes combos with his Medium and Light Attacks. He may use them to gain access to tremendous utility and land Guaranteed Critical Hits. Shang-Critical Chi’s Damage Rating rises as he scores Critical Hits, making him strike harder as the fight progresses.

Ghost

Ghost is a champion from the tech class. She possesses a Class Bonus against Mutant Champions as a Tech Champion, but she is prone to Cosmic Champions.

Warlock

Warlock is a Champion who belongs to the Tech class. He possesses a Class Bonus against Mutant Champions as a Tech Champion, but he is vulnerable to Cosmic Champions.

Corvus Glaive

Corvus Glaive is a champion from the cosmic class. He possesses a Class Bonus versus Tech Champions as a Cosmic Champion, but he is prone to Mystic Champions.

Guillotine 2099

Guillotine 2099 is a champion from the tech class. She possesses a Class Bonus against Mutant Champions as a Tech Champion, but she is prone to Cosmic Champions.

Omega Red

When playing as Omega Red, keeping a close eye on your surroundings is crucial; more Death Spores equals greater damage and a lower likelihood of those pesky Skill Champions Purifying your Stuns from a Parry.

Magik

She can teleport anywhere in the globe as Magik (and occasionally, anywhere in time). She wields the terrible Soulsword as the Darkchilde, the sorceress supreme of the demon planet Limbo. Illyana is Colossus’ sister, Kitty Pryde’s best friend, and a harsh instructor at Cyclops’ mutant school.

Ægon

Ægon has a habit of defying his family’s rigorous non-violence ethic. He covertly trained as a gladiator to win the Contest and rescue his people, motivated by love and duty.

Void

Void is a champion from the science class. He possesses a Class Bonus against Mystic Champions as a Science Champion, but he is vulnerable to Skill Champions.

Sunspot

Sunspot has a limited quantity of Solar Charges at the start of each fight, which he uses up every time an attack connects with his opponent. He boosts the damage of his attack by a large amount for each Solar Charge eaten. He Incinerates his opponent if the strike is effective.

Captain America (Sam Wilson)

The Sam Wilson version of the Captain America character in MCOC is of the Tech category, therefore hailing a class advantage against Mutants. Nevertheless, here users have to keep in mind the inherited disadvantage against Cosmics as well. 

Instead of rendering the usual crits, Captain America (Sam Wilson) inflicts Ruptures, ultimately restricting the Opponent from triggering critical counter measures in return. Also, he especially aces defense against Special Attacks as he masters the ability to reduce the effect that opponents pack for him.

He does this via Cowardice Passive paired with the nifty Auto-Block Special Attack chance, which further initiates the Parry. What’s this? It increases Captain America’s Block Proficiency while decreasing the enemy’s Ability Accuracy. 

However, the character still has its drawbacks, and the biggest one is perhaps his vulnerability against True Strike, which tends to bypass all onboard defenses.

Domino

Domino, also known as Neena Thurman. She refined her Mutant talent to manipulate probability and joined the mercenary squad known as X-Force after escaping a top-secret facility with her mother. She belongs to the Mutant Class.

A-Tier

He features two modes: offensive and defensive, which may be switched manually or on a timer. Protocol charges are earned by properly using both modes, allowing him to engage both at the same time.

Apocalypse

Apocalypse’s goal is to get enough genetic code to strengthen himself or his fellow Mutants. He achieves this by simply winning fights. Apocalypse has the option of keeping his Genetic Code to improve his skills or spending it in the Pre-Fight screen to strengthen any Mutant partner! Apocalypse is all about massive Special Attacks in battle!

Special Attacks 1 and 2 will cause a Debuff to be applied based on the last attack landed; these Debuffs may be upgraded with Special 3! Finally, if Apocalypse’s trademark Ability is unlocked, he enters a deep slumber if he does not engage in combat, allowing him to regenerate health dependent on how many bouts his team wins while he sleeps!

Tigra

Tigra is an excellent performer in MCOC, three special attacks, and one signature attack are included in Tigra’s toolkit. All of these are beneficial in their ways and can give you an upper hand sometimes.

Black Widow (Claire Voyant)

Claire is concentrated on cycling through her many curses during the fight to keep one step ahead of the Opponent.

Claire’s three curses have diverse functions: the Curse of Blood focuses on regeneration, the Curse of Plague focuses on power control, and the Curse of Hellfire focuses on damage.
