Give into Purgatory’s Bloodthirst on Marvel Contest of Champions

The Bloodlines have been drawn. Give into her Bloodthirst, claim the souls of your foes and become champion as Purgatory enters The Contest in Kabam’s MARVEL Contest of Champions.

Purgatory is a twisted, demonic creature, from an alternate timeline where Morningstar was finally able to defeat Guillotine and steal her sword back. With the blade finally back in her hands, the demonic presence within it overwhelmed Queen Haasen and convinced her to slay Guillotine. Doing so corrupted both her body and soul, transforming her into Purgatory and sending her on a bloodthirsty rampage unlike any seen in a millennium.

Take a look at Purgatory’s Champion Spotlight, which details her abilities, history, strengths and recommended masteries.
