As part of Kabam's fourth annual appearance at New York Comic-Con, located at the Javits Center, the company is kicking off their latest appearance with the reveal of Morningstar, an original Marvel character created for the free-to-play mobile fighting game Marvel Contest of Champions. From Oct. 5-8, New York Comic-Con attendees can meet with the Kabam team at Booth #1466 and be the first to try out Morningstar alongside classic Marvel hero Blade before their in-game debut later this month.
Morningstar is an all-new original Marvel character debuting in Marvel Contest of Champions. She started out as a bloodthirsty and tyrannical queen at the turn of the 10th century who was overthrown and imprisoned in a specially-built "iron maiden" torture device made to trap the soul of the tortured beyond death. After many years, she has been given the chance for revenge by Mephisto, Lord of Lies, and her iron maiden prison has been transformed into golem-like armor as she wanders the land in search of her infamous demon sword - La Fleur du Mal - currently in the possession of Guillotine, another Marvel character that debuted in Marvel Contest of Champions.
Marvel Contest of Champions is a mobile arcade-style fighting game that goes beyond the films and dives deep into the Marvel Universe. Super Heroes and Super Villains from Marvel's Avengers, The Defenders, X-Men, Inhumans, Guardians of the Galaxy, and more battle it out in iconic Marvel locations in an epic storyline that stays true to classic Marvel storytelling. Immediately following its launch in December 2014, Marvel Contest of Champions was awarded the App Store's Editors' Choice.
