Marvel Games continues to celebrate Marvel Studios' 10 Years. This week, witness Heimdall as he enters the Battlerealm.

One of the greatest warriors of Asgard, Heimdall was appointed Guardian of the Rainbow Bridge for all time, by Odin All-Father. His eyes can see all of creation, and his ears can hear a whisper from anywhere in the Nine Realms. Heimdall has many times saved Asgard, detecting threats long before they can become a danger, and either dispatching the threat himself or sounding Gjallarhorn to call forth the other defenders of Asgard.

Heimdall's basic abilities includes Armor, Fury, Armor Break, Power Gain, and Stun. Special attacks include Hofund, where Heimdall wields his uru sword Hofund with powerful sweeping blows combining his natural strength with enchantments woven into the blade by Odin himself; Blue Flame of the Stars, where upon channeling the cosmic power of the stars themselves, Heimdall unleashes a blast of blue flame of terrifying power; and Master of the Bifrost, where Heimdall is able to unlock the Bifrost unleashing the power of the rainbow bridge itself upon his opponent. 

His Synergy Bonuses include Warriors of Asgard with Thor, Thor (Ragnarok), and Loki; Lost Daughters of Asgard with Angela and Hela; and Enchanted Blades with Magik and Guillotine. His strongest match-ups include Spider-Man, Iron Man (Infinity War), and Yondu. His weakest mashups are Ronan, Mephisto and Dormammu.

Collect Heimdall when he joins The Contest this Thursday, August 16!
