[Character Update] Behold, Ant-Man and the Wasp are here in Marvel Contest of Champions!
In conjunction with the new movie by Marvel Cinematic Universe, there are 2 new additions to Marvel Contest of Champions (MCOC)! With Ant-Man and the Wasp movie released on 4th July, Marvel movies are once again the talk of the town.
In fact, this is the second Ant-Man movie after the initial one released in 2015. We are expecting more action-packed scenes and leading performances by Ant-Man as this is the last movie in 2018 by Marvel, before the release of Captain Marvel (early 2019) and the highly-anticipated Avengers 4 film that is projected to be released by the end of 2019.
Those who have watched the latest Avengers film (Avengers: Infinity War) would know that due to Thanos’ completed Infinity Gauntlet, half of all life across the universe had vanished into thin air. And since Ant-Man did not join in this fight, fans are curious what the Marvel has in stored for them for the upcoming Ant-Man and the Wasp movie, and also the Avengers 4 film.
OK, enough of movie talk, we are also thrilled to hear that Kabam is adding 2 new champions into the Contest of Champions. Ant-Man and Yellowjacket, who are rivals in the film, are also arch nemeses in the game.
New Characters Released
Ant-Man and Yellowjacket, being Science Champions, have a class bonus against Mystic Champions such as Doctor Strange and Juggernaut but are weak against Skill Champions such as Black Panther and Thor. Being members of the Science class, not only do both Ant-Man and Yellowjacket have strong defensive capabilities, they are also strong in their offensive skills.

So what makes them different? Who should you focus on when levelling up their stats?
It’s like comparing a Hero with a Villain, where it’s a constant tug-o-war. There would not be a clear winner as it all depends on how you strategize it. Ant-Man’s Ant Swarm attack is able to poison its opponent and weaken their healing abilities, which puts him at an advantage in front of healer Champions such as Wolverine and Deadpool. His status effect, Fatigue, decreases the chance of Critical Hits from his opponents, resulting in less effective damages from them.
On the other hand, Yellowjacket’s new status effect of Power String bring damage to his opponents when they try to inflict huge damage on him (much like a deflecting damage thing), taking defense as an offense to another level.
