Limber Up As Red Guardian Joins the Contest – Available NOW on Marvel Contest of Champions

He’s the Soviet equivalent of Captain America – a symbol of Russia’s strength and patriotism. Limber up and take down your adversary with Red Guardian as heenters The Battlerealm in Kabam’s MARVEL Contest of Champions. His character design is inspired by Marvel Studios’ Black Widow in theaters on November 6th.

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. As the Cold War flared, Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev determined the Soviet Union needed its own equivalent to Captain America and seeing Shostakov’s popularity, chose him to fill that role. The KGB then faked his death, training him in secret and turning him into a master of hand-to-hand combat and a highly skilled athlete.

Check out Red Guardian’s Champion Spotlight, which details his abilities, history, strengths, recommended masteries.

It’s Red By Dawn as Black Widow and Red Guardian Enter the Battlerealm of Marvel Contest of Champions

Tools break. Weapons fail. But Champions… endure. The Contest continues as Kabam debuted an all-new motion comic teasing two new Champions coming to the popular mobile brawler MARVEL Contest of ChampionsBlack Widow and Red Guardian. These character designs are inspired by Marvel Studios’ Black Widow in theaters on November 6th. Here is a quick look at what the Contest has in store this upcoming month:

In the wake of the Cabal’s collapse, Black Widow has been tasked with locating and recovering a lost mind control weapon. To accomplish her mission, Agent Romanoff will need the help of an old friend. Red Guardian is a fellow former soviet and an honorable and trustworthy ally. However, they soon discover that they are not the only ones chasing the lost Cabal technology. A secretive mastermind has employed the skills of Taskmaster, the photo-reflexive mercenary, to stop Black Widow from finding this weapon at all costs!

It’s a race across The Battlerealm, with new foes to fight and where old allegiances will be tested in this month’s Event Quest: Black Widow: Red By Dawn!

Both characters will arrive to the game in May, and fans can now check out the all-new motion comic!
