I haven’t done one of these Top 10 Thursdays posts in quite a while now, so I thought that now would be a great time to do one. And since I’ve been playing loads of MARVEL Contest of Champions lately, I thought that could be the theme for this top 10 list. Here’s the deal: these are the ten MARVEL characters which I would want to see in MCoC the most. I didn’t include any champions that are already in the game either as playable characters or as enemies. Also, I will be suggesting how many stars the champion should have, what the attacks could be and what the celebration could be. So, let’s go!
Starting off the list is Betty Ross, also known as Red She-Hulk! She is the incredibly badass daughter of Thunderbolt Ross (Red Hulk) and it is very surprising that she isn’t in the game yet. I think that she should definitely be available as a four star and five star champion. Her one-bar and two-bar attacks could just be combos made up of punches and kicks, while the three-bar attack could be her completely lashing out and throwing the opponent up high, only to have them fall back down at least four seconds later. Her celebration could be just a roar.
Flying into ninth place we have Nova! This powerful hero can use energy blasts to take down his enemies. He could totally be a five star champion. His one-bar attack could be that he just flies into the opponent, fists-first. His two-bar attack could be that he fires a blast at the opponent. And his three-bar attack could be that he grabs hold of the opponent, flies up high, then electrocutes them really hard, drops them and comes back down gracefully. His celebration could be that he takes off his helmet and then just does a generic hero pose.
And in eight place, we have Bullseye! He is probably the most iconic Daredevil villain and I’m guessing that the only reason he isn’t in the game yet is that they’ll do some sort of event with him whenever Daredevil Season 3 happens. I think that Bullseye should be available as either a two star or three star champion. His one-bar attack could be just some nice hand-to-hand combo. His two-bar attack could be him throwing a whole bunch of shurikens. And his three-bar attack could be that he throws a card at the opponent’s face as a distraction. By the time the opponent takes off the card, Bullseye goes in with several punches and kicks and then he does a slow-mo backflip and throws a few well-aimed shurikens. His celebration could be him throwing two cards behind him, then crossing his arms.
In number seven, we have none other than Death Locket herself! She is good ol’ Deathlock’s daughter and attends Avengers Academy (Yeah, that’s a thing). She could be available as both a three star and a four star champion. I think they could get away with giving her the same special attacks as Deathlock and her celebration could be that the camera spins as she does a fairly generic superhero pose with her hair blowing in the wind.
And dropping peacefully into sixth place, making sure not to hurt anybody, is Zenpool! Yes, I know. You guys might be fed up with so many different versions of Deadpool being in the game, but I think that this would be a really fun one! In case you’re not familiar, Wade Wilson decided that he’ll stop being so violent and he’ll take much more of a pacifist approach to getting his mercenary work done. He could be available as a two star, three star or four star champion. His one-bar attack could be that he throws a giant love-heart pillow at the opponent. The two-bar attack could be that he sends in a dove, that hurts the opponent. Don’t question it. It’s Zenpool!. And then the three-bar attack could be that he tries to play a little guitar solo, but after seeing that it’s not really working, he proceeds to whack the opponent with the guitar a few times.
Hovering awkwardly over fifth place, is Doop! This is a very silly and obscure character. If you’ve been following my blog for a long time, you’ll know that he is my favourite jokey character. I wrote a whole post about him here. Anyway, this weird, green, non-human fella could be a two star champion. His one-bar attack could be that he punches the opponent continuously. His two-bar attack could be that he goes into a ball and bounces all over the place, eventually hitting the opponent. And his three-bar attack could be that he launches himself around the opponents neck, strangling them for a good six seconds before he lets go. His celebration could be him just doing a facepalm. Just a facepalm. I feel like the words just a facepalm actually sum up the character of Doop very well.
What’s that in fourth place? Is it a squirrel? Is it a girl? Yeah, well, sort of both. That’s right! Continuing the streak of pretty damn silly characters, we have Squirrel Girl! I feel like she has had a lot of attention lately, so most people should know who she is. But if you don’t, in a nutshell, she’s just a chick with squirrel-themed powers. She could be a two-star champion. Her one-bar attack could be that she runs in an all-fours and does some combo, similar to Black Panther’s two-bar attack. Her two-bar attack could be that she points a finger at the opponent, causing a few squirrels to come in and attack them. And her three-bar attack could be a crazy mixture of her attacking and squirrels attacking. It would be awesome! Her celebration could be her holding a little squirrel and petting it.
And running into third place is Quicksilver! We have his insanely over-powered sister, but he’s still waiting to be added to the game! He could be available as both a three star and a four star champion. His one-bar attack could be that he just runs in and does like a thousand punches withing just two seconds. His two-bar attack could be that he runs up to the opponent and spins around them really fast, while continuosly punching them. And his three-bar attack could be that he keeps throwing the opponent from one side of the arena, to the other, quickly running over to the other side to catch them and throw them again. The opponent would, of course, recieve damage after each throw. His celebration could be that he runs on and off the screen a couple of times, before actually stopping in the centre and doing a heroic pose.
In second place we have the one and only Taskmaster! This super-villain can copy other people fighting styles, making him very hard to defeat. This would be such a fun champion to play as or play against! He could be a three star champion. His attacks would basically be him copying the opponent’s attacks. His celebration could be him holding up his shield and grinning.
And in first place we have… Iron Man? But wait a sec, isn’t he already in the game? That’s right, but I’m talking about Iron Man in his mark 1 armour! The mark 1 is my favourite Iron Man armour out of all of them, and I’m shocked that it’s still not in the game! It could be available as both a four star and a five star champion. His one-bar attack could be that he rapid-fires some bullets out of his guns. His two-bar attack could be that he uses his flame-throwers. And his three-bar attack could be that he fires a couple of big missiles, then goes up-close and deals some serious damage. His celebration could be that he takes of his helmet and does the world-famous, iconic Tony Stark smile.
As for some honorable mentions, I also wanted to add Yondu and a Bucky from World War II. Don’t forget to download MARVEL’s Contest of Champions to play it for yourself! Obviously MARVEL isn’t paying me or anything. It’s just a really cool mobile game and I want to recommend it to you all! Anyway, share this post on your social media if you feel like you want other people to know about it. Talking about social media, don’t forget to like me on Facebook, follow me on Instagram and subscribe to me on YouTube. But that’s it from me for now. See thee soon!
