2020 has seen a lot of new character releases in Marvel Strike Force. With that said, it can be difficult to know who the best characters in the game are and who to spend your precious resources on. Below I have compiled a list of what I believe are currently the top 10 best characters in the game today. This list is solely based on my opinion and experience I have had in this game. Your experience may vary. I welcome any comments or suggestions to the list.
Crawling in at number 10, we have Symbiote Spider-Man
Symbiote Spider-Man and the Symbiotes team has been growing on me more and more. He has an amazing kit, with all his abilities being T4 upgrade worthy. I’m currently building him up to be my first city tagged G14 character for Dark Dimension III. Don’t sleep on this character.
Coming in at number 9, we have the devious Mister Sinister
Mister Sinister is a very unique character in Marvel Strike Force. His cloning mechanic is awesome and a real game changer. He’s also a great healer. Be careful taking on a high level Mister Sinister team in War, as his heals are ridiculous and he can solo a complete team if that team isn’t compiled correctly. He’s now farm-able in the War store, and I highly recommend using War credits to buy his shards.
Flying in at number 8, we have the powerful Captain Marvel
Captain Marvel is a one woman wrecking crew in Marvel Strike Force. I have T4 upgraded all of her abilities and recommend you doing so as well. She’s amazing on War defense and can really give the attacking teams fits. I also use her in Arena, Ultimus VII, and Dark Dimension III so I get a lot of usage with her. You can plug her in on any team and she instantly makes them good.
Killing it at number 7, we have the Goddess of Death, Hela
Hela is a definitely one of the best characters in Marvel Strike Force. She is the apart of the best War defense team in the Asgardians. What I really like about Hela, is that she can work well outside of the Asgardians on many theory crafting teams. I have T4 upgraded her passive and ultimate abilities. I currently use Hela in many game modes including Dark Dimension III. You can also use Hela to unlock Black Bolt in the Unite the Kingdoms Event and Phoenix in the Rising Phoenix Event.
Coming in at number 6, we have the best healer in the game, Minn-Erva
Minn-Erva was top 3 for a long time. I’m not sure that Foxnext ever meant for her to be as good as she turned out to be. In my opinion, she is still the best healer in the game. I currently use Minn-Erva on my main Ultimus VII team. If you have yet to start Dark Dimension, she is your best option to take into Dark Dimension I and II to unlock Ultron. She’s also apart of the best Ultimus VI team, BKT or Best Kree Team. She is truly a plug and play character and doesn’t require any T4 ability upgrades to be good.
Multiplying in at number 5, we have the virus known as Ultron
Ultron has held the title of best character in Marvel Strike Force for a long, long time. As soon as you unlocked him, he was instantly on your main Arena and Raid teams. I also recommend T4 upgrading everyone of his abilities. I still use him on my main Ultimus VII team and in Dark Dimension III. The reason Ultron has fallen from the number one spot, is he doesn’t receive any red star boosts like every other character. While this puts him at a disadvantage, he is still a top 10 character in the game. I can’t wait for the day where Foxnext lets us place red stars on Ultron. Can you imaging a 7 red star Ultron???
Sneaking in at number 4, we have the beautiful Sue Storm
Invisible Woman is one of my favorite characters in Marvel Strike Force. She can be plugged in on any team and instantly increases your survive-ability. I have T4 upgraded all of her abilities and currently use her in Ultimus VII and Dark Dimension III. My main Ultimus VII team would not work without Sue’s barriers and defense up.
Conquering number 3, we have the mad titan, Thanos
Thanos was always a top 10 character in my book, but now, empowered Thanos is just over the top ridiculous. I have T4 upgraded all of his abilities and have 6 red stars on him. He’s currently on my main Ultimus VII team, as he feeds energy to Black Bolt and Invisible Woman, can heal himself, and is a great tank. He’s also apart of the best Arena team in the Black Order. I use them on both Arena offense and defense and am always in the top 10 in my shard.
Screaming in at number 2, we have the Inhuman King Black Bolt
Black Bolt, is probably the strongest damage dealer in the game right now. I have T4 upgraded all of his abilities. I currently use him on my main Raid team and in Dark Dimension III. He is my primary damage dealer in Ultimus VII and I highly recommend placing Thanos next to him to feed him energy. I am able to use Black Bolt’s ultimate every other turn by doing this and he makes Ultimus VII so much easier.
Soaring in at number 1, we have the Phoenix Force
It is definitely close between number 1 and 2. However, I have to give the edge to Phoenix as she makes Dark Dimension III possible. I don’t know how many more months it would of taken without her. She is also apart of the X-Men, which counter every team in War. I have T4 upgraded all of her abilities and highly recommend every player work hard to unlock her.
