Two all new fighters will be joining Marvel Contest of Champions this month and they’ll have you feeling nostalgic for the 90s. Kabam’s latest motion comic, which has a very X-Men: Children of the Atom vibe, teases the mutants that will be available in the game: Jubilee and Stryfe. Below are both of their character bios.
“Jubilee grew up in a wealthy family, attending a private school and becoming an exceptional gymnast. However, her life took an unexpected turn when her parents were assassinated, leaving her orphaned. After manifesting her explosive mutant powers, she was welcomed with open arms into a new family, the X-Men.
A child was created as a clone of infant “Nathan Summers” in the hopes of salvaging his techno-organic virus ravished body. Thinking this child to be Nathan, Apocalypse kidnapped him, giving him the name Stryfe in preparation to one day transfer his own consciousness into Stryfe’s body. Later discovering that he was actually a clone and unfit to house his essence, Apocalypse abandoned Stryfe. Feeling betrayed by both what he thought was his real parents and his adoptive father Apocalypse, Stryfe grew up as an embittered madman seeking vengeance on those who wronged him.”
In addition, the January event will revolve around Krakoa. An unseen force attacks the island and Cable partners with a young mutant to track down the mystery assailant but will their search lead to peace or destruction? Join them on their trek that will uncover secrets from the past, present and future.
