Sam Wilson and Misty Knight are coming to Marvel Contest of Champions

Two new Marvel Contest of Champions are on the way, Captain America (Sam Wilson) and Misty Knight promise to take you on another action-fuelled adventure

Sam Wilson and Misty Knight

Listen up, heroes. Marvel Contest of Champions is getting two new characters this month, both of which promise to bring the fight, helping to defeat adversaries and build safe havens. Any idea who we’re talking about? No, well, the first is Captain America, who is joined by Misty Knight. Admittedly, some of you may not be familiar with the latter hero.

However, Marvel Contest of Champions’ Captain America may not be who you think, as this iteration isn’t Steve Rogers, but Sam Wilson. Still, you’re likely familiar with the character as he begins his heroic journey as Falcon, taking over from Rogers as the titular hero after the time comes for The First Soldier to hang up his shield.

In Marvel Contest of Champions, Wilson rounds up survivors after Galactus turns Hell’s Kitchen into the devil’s playground. He intends to take those he saves to a helicarrier where Misty Knight waits. With those aboard, the detective plans to build a neutral community known as Safe Haven, a place where everyone that escapes the Galactus threat is welcome.

Of course, nothing is as simple as that. A mutiny begins to form aboard the helicarrier, and it’s up to the two heroes to save the day.

While Misty might not be as well known as Sam, that doesn’t mean you won’t have seen her in action before, especially if you’re a fan of Netflix’s Iron Fist, Luke Cage, and The Defenders.
