When building a team in Marvel: Avengers Alliance, you often want to include heroes that can apply specific status effects. Resurrection is the ability to save a hero when it is reduced to 0 health. This ability is literally a life saver because once you lose a hero that character can’t return to the battle in any way. There are plenty of attacks in the game that are nearly impossible to mitigate, which makes resurrection one of the few options that can actually avoid losing heroes. The following guide to the best resurrection heroes in Marvel: Avengers Alliance will help you choose the character that will best help your team.
Valkyrie – Valkyrie is rather unique among resurrection heroes. First, she has the ability to grant a resurrection effect that works 100% of the time. Most resurrection effects have a lower chance of success. Additionally, she can grant that effect to her entire party. Sacrificial Blessing costs her 25% of her health, but has a 70% chance of applying a resurrection benefit to each of her allies and a 100% chance of applying the effect to her. For each character affected, the next time the character is reduced to 0 health, the character revives with 25% health. If the effect wears off without being used, the character regains 25% of health. The effect has the drawback that it can be removed with effect removal. If Valkyrie is equipped with the Valhallan Augmented ISO-8, this power becomes a quick action and has a 100% chance of affecting allies, which makes it unquestionably the best resurrection effect in the game.
White Crown Phoenix – As a passive benefit, the first time any character on your team is reduced to 0 health, Phoenix has a 50% chance of resurrecting the hero with 25% health. That is a rather solid benefit for a passive ability that can’t be removed in any way. Furthermore, this variant of Phoenix can restore this effect by using her Phoenix Fire power. Obviously the power has a chance of failing, but if you are lucky, it is possible for this resurrection effect to infinitely revive your heroes. Some other heroes, like Wolverine, have similar benefits but only for themselves and the benefits only restore them to 1% health.
Iceman – The first time Iceman is reduced to 0 health in a battle, he is automatically restored to 10% health. Additionally, this benefit, Dead of Winter, can stack up to three times, which means that Iceman can be restored up to three times in the same round. Every other hero that can resurrect multiple times during a battle is limited to once per round. The normal version of Iceman can build up these stacks by using his Breaking the Ice power and can potentially revive an unlimited number of times. The Horseman of Death variant doesn’t have this power but gains extra uses of Dead of Winter when an enemy is defeated.
Nico Minoru – Nico has, by far, the best personal resurrection in the game. The first time she is defeated she returns with full health, all negative status effects removed, and acts twice a round for the remainder of the battle. Additionally, she can’t be injured or afflicted with negative status effects until the start of her next turn. This is one character in the game that you can assure will always get at least one chance to act, unless the enemy uses effects like brutal strike.
Sabretooth – Sabretooth has the second best personal resurrection ability and only by a slight margin. His assured resurrection only restores him to half health, but since his health is so much higher than Nico’s to begin with, the two heroes are basically equivalent and Sabretooth actually has a slight edge because he also gains massive regeneration after resurrecting. He also acts twice a round just like Nico after reviving. The reason he isn’t quite as good is because he doesn’t lose negative status effects and he can take damage between his revival and his next action.
