The popular Marvel mobile fighting game, Contest of Champions, is becoming the latest to bring the first family of the house of ideas back into a spotlight. Today, the game’s developer, Kabam, revealed a new quest would allow players to unlock the blue-eyed Thing from the Fantastic Four.
Benjamin Grimm, also known as “Thing”, served as the pilot on the starship expedition led by Reed Richards. During the voyage, the ship encountered unprecedented levels of radiation, granting the crew extraordinary powers. Ben gained incredible physical strength, and his body was covered in a flexible, rock-like hide. After returning to earth, the team banded together to form the Fantastic Four. It’s clobberin’ time!
Thing is a sturdy defender with multiple immunities, who increases his resistances and can become Unstoppable when he gets hit. His abilities also steadily build up Fury, significantly raising his attack as the fight goes on.
The Thing’s appearance in the game is on the heels of Future Fight bringing the Fantastic Four to the mobile RPG and the news that we’ll soon get some “Fantastic” Spidey content in Marvel’s Spider-Man for PlayStation 4.
Marvel Contest of Champions is free to download for Android and iOS via your native app store.
