GET IN, WE’RE GOING TIME-TRAVELING! The Contest continues as Kabam debuted an all-new motion comic teasing two new Champions coming to the popular mobile fighter MARVEL Contest of Champions– Cosmic Ghost Rider and Red Goblin! Here is a quick look at what the Contest has in store this month:
Several time anomalies have been detected on the far reaches of The Battlerealm. As concerning as numerous temporal activities in one region is, it does not appear to affect the mysterious characters running amok in the nearby area.
Reports state that “The Rider” has been sighted in the region after tracking down a seemingly abandoned warehouse filled with countless Crystals. As great of a find as this is, caution is urged, as there is very likely a sinister reason why the Crystals were abandoned in the first place…
Hop in and get ready for a turbulent ride through The Contest as Cosmic Ghost Rider and Red Goblin fight for, about & through time itself in this month’s Event Quest; Recursion!
Both characters will arrive to the game in October, and fans can now check out the all-new motion comic here:

After conquesting the Earth for many millennia Apocalypse used Celestial technology to enter a period of suspended animation for many centuries, awakening in the current age and deciding the Earth is ready for further examination.

Riddled with guilt for the battle’s destruction and the death of his former ally at his own hands, he assumed the mantle of the Civil Warrior. Adding Tony’s ARC technology to his Captain America gear, he vowed to use his friend’s legacy to stop this senseless conflict from ever happening again.

Alexei Shostakov was one of the Soviet Union’s most acclaimed pilots, crediting them with air supremacy over the skies of Stalingrad and Kursk during World War II and thus granting him national recognition.
