CHARACTER BIOS

Wiccan

William “Billy” Kaplan is the reincarnated son of Scarlet Witch that had been magically created through Chaos Magic but later dispelled. Not long after Billy discovered his powers he was recruited into the New Avengers. Initially he had chosen to name himself after Thor and adopted the super hero identity of the Asgardian, but as he matured as a hero and developed more as his own person he changed his code-name to Wiccan.

Hulkling

Growing up, Theodore “Teddy” Altman thought he was simply a mutant with shapeshifting and super-strength. Then one day he was hunted down by Super-Skrull and informed that not only was he actually a hybrid of the Kree and Skrull races, he was also a member of the Skrull rowyal family. As time passed, Teddy claimed his role as the once and future King of Space, emperor of the united Kree/Skrull alliance, and wielder of the mythical star-sword, Excelsior.

Set your reminders! Hulkling will arrive in-game June 16 and Wiccan on June 30. New and existing players will be given the opportunity to add either Hulkling or Wiccan to their roster for free beginning June 8 and concluding on July 6. In the meantime, fans can now check out Hulkling and Wiccan in the all-new Champion Trailer – Legacies – and catch up on The Battlerealm with character Deep Dive and Special Moves content on the official Marvel Contest of Champions YouTube channel

Conquer the Battlerealm With Overseer on Marvel Contest of Champions

A younger version of Maestro from an alternate reality that is equal in every way, except he still maintains his sanity. The Overseer has just started his conquering career and while he isn’t villainous, he’s not quite noble either. He uses Captain America’s shield for defense, and the Silver Surfer board as a giant cleaver, but his most powerful weapon is a copy of the Infinity Gauntlet that holds the Cosmic Cube, which he uses to travel across the Battlerealm looking for conquest.
