Marvel Contest of Champions now boasts one of the largest rosters of Marvel heroes and villains in any game to date. The latest character set to join the collectable brawler is the Silver Surfer.

Developer Kabam recently put out an extended cinematic trailer to celebrate the game's 5th anniversary. Turns out the game has done really rather well over this last year, which also happens to have been the year of the Fantastic 4. And so I suppose it was only a matter of time before one of the 4's greatest villains showed up.

In order to save his home planet from certain annihilation, Norrin Radd was forced to make the ultimate sacrifice by relinquishing his life to become the Silver Surfer, a herald of the eater of planets, Galactus. Now his sole mission is to travel the galaxy and find new planets to feed his master.

The Surfer is mostly focused on creating and maintaining as many unique buffs as possible. Every buff will increase his on-hit energy damage while also enabling him to create new buffs whenever he launches a special attack.

For a full rundown of his stats and abilities, best head on over to the game's official site. And if you're yet to give it a go, you'll find Marvel Contest of Champions available for download now from both the App Store and Google Play for free.
