It's time for a family reunion! Reed Richards/Mister Fantastic -- leader of the Fantastic Four -- has joined the roster of the mobile fighting game Marvel Contest of Champions, meaning all four original members of the seminal superhero team are now playable in-game.
Mister Fantastic's Signature Ability is called "The Smartest Man in the Battlerealm." With it, the hero's Offensive Power Rate is increased by 40 percent for each "Careful Study" debuff on the opponent. Additionally, Mister Fantastic's chance to evade an unblockable attack is increased by 20 percent -- which increases by 3 percent every time the opponent starts an unblockable hit, and caps out at 50 percent for basic attacks.
Mister Fantastic can also use multiple different Synergy Bonuses with the game's various other characters. For instance, "H.E.R.B.I.E." and "The Fantastic Four" can be used with fellow teammates Invisible Woman, Human Torch and the Thing. There is also "...Do Us Part," which Mister Fantastic can use alongside Invisible Woman only; "Council of Reeds," which can be used with another Mister Fantastic; and "College Rivals," which can be used alongside the Fantastic Four's arch-nemesis, Doctor Doom.
Arguably the most important team in Marvel Comics' 80-year history, the Fantastic Four were created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, making their first appearance in 1961's Fantastic Four #1. Ben Grimm/Thing was the first founding member to join the roster of Marvel Contest of Champions, and was added to the game this past January. He was followed by Johnny Storm/Human Torch in April and Sue Storm-Richards in June. With the new addition of Mister Fantastic, Marvel's First Family can finally unite in the popular mobile title. More details regarding the character's stats and abilities can be found on the game's official website.
