This year’s edition of the New York Comic Con has just concluded, with a plethora of new reveals. Lots of showcases were held on Marvel’s stage, including a massive announcement by Kabam, the studio behind the popular superhero game, Marvel Contest of Champions. The fighting game is receiving loads of new content such as a new hero and several activities.

New characters joining Marvel Contest of Champions usually isn’t that big of a deal since it happens every month. However, this time, it matters because a special hero is being introduced. Marvel COC will soon welcome their first-ever original character - Chee’ilth.

Check out this Marvel Contest of Champions tier list of the best and worst characters!

Chee’ilth draws inspiration from the First Nations people, which also happens to be her source of power. Her powers are tied to her heritage, with Chee’ilth’s combative abilities coming from Brother Grizzly, healing powers from Sister Eagle, and a lot of unique skills from other Spirits. She is set to join the game in November.
