America Chavez has some new friends arriving in The Contest and she wants to make sure that the Summoner is up to the challenge of showing off what The Battlerealm has to offer! Each week you’ll be able to fight alongside WICCAN and HULKLING as they add some power to your fights as STRIKERS! Take advantage of your new friends’ powers as they offer a helping hand in all the challenges you’ll face. Show you have what it takes to become AMERICA’S ALL STARS!
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.
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.
