The Best Character in Ultimate Marvel 3?

1 Jan 2013 by Pandamanana, 2 Comments »

Compared to Marvel Versus Capcom 2, Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 has a very large top tier roster. Most people say that Vergil or Zero are the best characters in UMvC3, but I disagree.


Dr. Doom has everything the best character needs. He has the best assist in the game in Hidden Missiles, one of the best beam assists in Plasma Beam and a fairly good third assist in Molecular Shield. These three assists alone make him the best assist character in the game, but that’s not all.

Dr. Doom also has one of the easiest corner combos ever and he has combos that are confirm-able off of almost anything almost anywhere on the screen. His foot dive (both his S and Forward H varieties) is one of the most feared moves in the game for a reason; it has a great hit box and confirms into Touch-of-Dead combos. Doom isn’t only about rushdown, though, as he has his trusty plasma beam, finger lasers AND air Heavy laser gun. His Team Air Combo potential is incredibly, he has a safe Delayed Hyper Combo and his THC leads to incredibly difficult to block mix ups.

If you’re looking for a third character to compliment your team with both amazing assists and strong on-screen presence, pick Dr. Doom. There’s a reason he’s the most played character in Ultimate. Doctor Victor Von Doom is the best character in Ultimate Marvel Versus Capcom 3.



I’d love to hear what your thoughts on who the best character is in UMvC3. Do you think Doom has what it takes to be the best? Do you think the power of Vergil, Zero, Crimson Viper, Magneto or Modok trump his utility? Leave a comment on this post or on the video on Youtube with your Top 5 tier lists.
