Leaked Marvel Rivals Roster Reveals Surprising Comic Book Characters

Marvel Rivals already has an impressive roster full of heroes and villains. But there are apparently some interesting ones on the way.

Marvel Rivals has a Closed Alpha just around the corner. The eerily familiar Overwatch 2-inspired hero shooter has been getting a lot of hype due to the exciting concept of combining abilities as heroes and villains inspired by iconic comic books. But which characters will exactly be in the game? The most recent leaks are quite interesting. 

Developers have confirmed a roster of 19 characters, including big names like Black Panther, Hulk, and Star Lord. Ahead of the Closed Alpha, however, data miners have found some more surprising characters coming to the shooter.

A leaker known as Miller Ross took to X to claim that 20 more characters will be on the roster when the game officially launches. This would bring the total amount of heroes, villains, and anti-heroes to 39. 

Here are the leaked characters: 

  • Adam Warlock
  • Black Widow
  • Blade
  • Captain America
  • Cloak & Dagger
  • Jeff the Landsark
  • Hawkeye
  • Human Torch
  • Invisible Woman
  • Iron Fist (Lin Lie)
  • Moon Knight
  • Mr. Fantastic
  • Psylocke
  • Squirrel Girl
  • The Thing
  • Thor
  • Ultron

Some of these heroes are a bit more obscure. This includes a hero called Jeff the landshark who is actually a pet that’s been spotted with Gwenpool, Deadpool, Hawkeye, and more. He looks like a little baby shark with a round body and sharp-toothed smile. 

Will the Leaked Characters Be in the Marvel Rivals Closed Alpha

The leaked characters have not been officially confirmed by developers. They most likely will not be part of the Closed Alpha, which will have the original 19 characters, five game modes, Overwatch 2-style maps, and even a tournament for competitive players that get access.
