Master List Of Left-Wing Youtube AND Podcast Channels submitted by
***NOTE: after a discussion with the mods I’ve taken out the original note here. Suffice to say the reason I put together this revised list was to add a number of channels I felt had been unfairly excluded. I’ve taken out a few controversial channels to comply with the mods request that i do so, as well as link to OP at his request. I thank the mods for allowing me to keep the rest of the channels I’ve added to the list.
Newly Added channels not on OP:
Tovarich Endymion, BrendanMccooney, Red Star Video, Claudia Brown, SJW101, azureScapegoat, Benji Adam Wiskettes, DemocraticSocialist01, Comrade Hakim, FinnishBolshevik, Bat’ko The Manarchist, ProSocialism, Flea Market Socialist, KnowingBetter, and a few others!
As a socialist I don't believe masterlists should constitute any kind of intellectual property that should be protected, especially in context of a masterlist that is being shared to spread awareness of leftist channels shared with the leftist community. I believe the channels I added deserve recognition. I don’t mind sharing editing with the community — let me know what you’d like to add and I’ll try my best to accommodate within the word limit here. I’ve had to take out a few of the film related channels to make room for more directly politically related podcasts.
I included the Podcast section in post and just removed the NEWS section of the original post, so that can be found in the OP (link in title). Also please note that to accommodate more podcasts and other more directly related leftist channels, I’ve had to remove some more film focused channels. Those can be found on the OP. Thanks comrades.
---------- please give these channels as much help as you can by subscribing and watching their content. We need these things to expand as much as possible if we don't want to entirely lose YouTube to the far-right.
: Explains political and social justice issues in funny and accessible way, utilising atmospheric lighting, lavish sets and costumes and memorable characters to illustrate her points.
Recommended video: Does The Left Hate Free Speech?
: Debunks and mocks the views of right-wing YouTube commentators. Combines silly sketch comedy with well-researched critiques. Also reviews media like TV and video games.
Recommended video: Soy Boys: A Measured Response
: Creates longform, extremely thorough and straightforward rebuttals of right-wing videos. His content is also very researched and relies on some very sly, dry humour. Has also begun making videos explaining left-wing positions on issues such as 'How Privatisation Fails: Railways'.
Recommended video: The Great Replacement Isn't Real ft. Lauren Southern
: Brought to my attention through the comments here. Has done some very interesting series of videos including 'Why Are You So Angry?', which analysed the mindset of the young men behind Gamergate.
Recommended videos: The Alt-Right Playbook: Introduction
: Creates deep dives from a socialist perspective into topical political and social issues. Also does regular livestreams on these subjects with his wife Ashleigh.
Recommended video: What Jordan B. Peterson Is Doing
: Analyses current affairs through a philosophical lens and creates explainers on well-known and important moral and political philosophers and philosophical concepts.
Recommended video: The Philosophy of Antifa
: A journalist and former geologist debunks climate change denial and other science myths ranging from that of right-wing YouTubers like Steven Crowder and Stefan Molyneux to major denier figures like Lord Christopher Monkton and Patrick Moore. Makes an enormous point of referencing scientific papers and consensus on these issues, but addresses these subjects in a very easy to understand way. Perhaps my favourite of all the YouTubers on this list.
Recomended video: Top 10 climate change myths Three Arrows
: Debunks inaccurate takes on history by the right wing. Uses a similar longform format to Shaun's videos, and is also very well-sourced with some of the mods of the Ask Historians subreddit acting as researchers.
Recommended video: Guns in the Third Reich - A Response to Ben Shapiro And Others
: Refutes poor understandings and misrepresentations of Marxism from YouTubers like Sargon of Akkad and PragerU while defending socially liberal ideas like intersectionality.
Recommended video: The Youtube Red Scare: Episode 1 - Does Sargon Understand the left?
Benji Adam Whiskettes:
Excellent marxist channel featuring videos on how Communism has improved womens rights, why the profit motive is not good, wealth gaps, and how capitalism has not created jobs. Noteworthy for video of Professor G.A. Cohen debunking the myth of incentive under capitalism Recommended video
: G.A. Cohen debunks the myth of incentive under Capitalism
Red Star Video:
Featuring marxist film reviews, analysis of the origin of the alt right, reaction videos on political charts, history of the second international, cuban socialism, and an overview of different tendencies, Red Star is an overall great marxist channel. Noteworthy for video “Why The RIght Is Wrong On Free Speech” Recommended Video:
Why The Right Is Wrong On “Free Speech” Claudia Brown:
Feminist and socialist channel featuring a variety of videos on a wide variety of subjects. Everything from Islam and Feminism to response videos, to women’s participation in the workplace, to examinations of the use of buzzwords. Noteworthy for unique perspectives on feminism and capitalism. Recommended Video:
Capitalism DOESNT enhance innovation SJW 101 The Political Gamer:
A channel that does effective leftist critique on a variety of issues, including on anti-feminism, the youtube right, the “skeptic” movement, Milo, Laci Green with wry wit and careful analysis. Recommended video:
Sargon, collectivism and the Skeptic Community Brendan Mccooney:
Hands down the most comprehensive channel on Marxian Economics. Covers topics like the law of value, overdeterminism, etc. in depth with well edited videos featuring videos, graphics. An absolute must for understanding economics, not too dry either. Recommended Video
: Law Of Value: Introduction DemocraticSocialist01:
With well edited, carefully argued videos on Hayek, Pinochet, Mao, Capitalisms Death Toll, Coach Red Pill, Brazil and Venezuela, this channel is excellent in debunking a lot of bad reactionary arguments while teaching quite a lot. Recommended Video:
Mao Did More Good Than Harm (Note: This video is mirrored, the video was taken down from his channel for some reason). BadMouseProductions
: Similarly primarily debunks bad understands of socialism from the right, but also does videos explaining socialist concepts and debunking bad right wing takes on other topics like climate change.
Recommended video: Argument ad Venezuelum
(debunks the idea that Venezuela is a socialist country) C0nc0rdance
: Only uploads infrequently, but does very educated videos explaining scientific concepts such as gender and the genetics of ethnicity from a left-wing perspective. Also does videos addressing social topics from this same political viewpoint.
Recommended video: The Science of Human Races, Part 1 CreationistCat
: The Mr. Plinkett of the YouTube Left. Using absurdist humour, bizarre editing and yet surprisingly great insight and research, the character of Creationist Cat (a magical housecat who was 'zapped through da internet' by God) mocks and exposes the bullshit of the right wing and online skeptic community.
Recommended video: MILO YIANNOPOULOS: EXPOSED! Comrade Hakim:
Noteworthy for a variety of videos discussing everything from the problem with worker co-ops, healthcare, how socialism gives a better quality of life, and one must watch video in particular on the subject of capitalism lifting people out of poverty. As an addendum to that video, I also recommend the Guardian Article “Aid In Reverse: How poor countries develop rich ones” Recommended Video
: Capitalism HASNT Lifted People Out Of Poverty Cuck Philosophy
: Explains topics in moral and political philosophy, does Marxist analyses of popular culture, but has perhaps best contributed to left-wing YouTube by doing long, in-depth deconstructions of the way figures like Jordan Peterson, Sam Harris and Steven Hicks misunderstand philosophy.
Recommended video: A Critique of Sam Harris' 'The Moral Landscape' EssenceOfThought
: Left-wing atheist channel that goes against what has become typically expected from the 'skeptic' community and actually critiques not only arguments from religious apologists, but also those who argue against non-binary gender, trans identities and other LGBT rights.
Recommended video: Jordan Peterson Lies About The Science On Same Gender Parenting For Harriet
: An intersectional black feminist channel which, aside from responding to current events pertaining to women's rights, takes a fairly uncompromising look at the perceived flaws in the movement to effectively analyse how it can be made better.
Recommended video: Candace Owens Is A Bad Actor Tovarisch Endymion:
An overall excellent marxist channel featuring videos on topics about Capitalism, how socialism HAS worked, replies to prager U and other reactionary channels, as well as a number of explainer videos. Noteworthy for video on an analysis of countries with deregulated market economies which feature atrocious wealth gaps. Recommended Video:
A Look at the Freest Markets In The World
Libertarian Socialist Rants
: An anarchist who debunks bad capitalist arguments and anti-social liberalism views. Also does videos explaining anarchist principles and refuting common critiques of this ideology.
Recommended video: Anarchist Commentaries Episode 6: Paul Joseph Watson and the Dunning-Kruger Effect
: The channel of well-known Marxist economist Prof. Richard D. Wolff. This channel is home to exclusive lectures where Professor Wolff explains current American and global economic problems and how Marxian economics can be both a prism to analyse how these problems effect people, and also be a solution to these systemic economic flaws. The channel Democracy At Work
(which actually currently sits at 60k subscribers) features other lectures on the same subjects regarding contemporary failures of capitalism, and is based on a book of Wolff's with the same name.
Recommended video: Crisis and Openings: Introduction to Marxism - Richard D Wolff
The Messianic Manic
: Another left-wing atheist channel. Does short but clever videos rebutting bad arguments from religious apologists and social conservatives.
Recommended video: Ben Shapiro Is Wrong About: Raising Children
: A promotional channel for the Marxist literary publishing imprint of the same name. Uses the books available from their line as a starting point for videos exploring concepts in political and social philosophy and interpreting current political events and figures through a Marxist lens.
Recommended video: The Intellectual Dark Web Is Afraid Of Marx
: Produces anarchist critiques of current political events and explorations of anarchist/socialist history.

: Debunks online right-wing heroes like Ben Shapiro, Jordan Peterson and Christina Hoff-Sommers.

Recommended video: The Kunst Saga | How The Right Wing Views Modern Art
In Otter Words
: Hasn't uploaded in a year but hopefully will again soon since his output has been very underrated. Debunks bad right-wing criticisms of feminism and the trans rights movement. I'm shocked no bigger YouTubers have seized on his discovery that Ben Shapiro has been lying about the trans suicide rate.
Recommended video: Ben Shapiro and the Transgender Suicide Rate
: Very similar to the style of Potholer54, but addressing similar subjects to channels like those like Hbomb, Shaun and Contra. He debunks right-wingers like Dave Rubin, Steven Crowder and Roaming Millennial with very eloquent, long-form responses.
Recommended video: Steven Crowder Is A Fraud | Change My Mind
: Feminist social scientist famous for pummelling Sargon of Akkad when they debated. Does discussion livestreams addressing events and arguments of the anti-feminist 'Skeptic' community.
Recommended video: Reasonable Questions For Anti-SJWS
and Formal Debate: Sargon of Akkad vs Kristi Winters
Maria the Witch
: Covers feminist and LGBT topics. Similarly to Contra (whom she has recently done a video criticising) Maria often rebuts anti-SJW points against socially progressive ideals, having done videos addressing fat shaming, the placement of asexuality on the LGBT spectrum, and the commodification of female beauty.
Recommended video: Roaming Millennial: Hates Women. Hates Facts.
: Has done rebuttals to Dave Rubin and InfoWars as well as a video defending non-binary gender from the uneducated criticism of major YouTubers (see below).
Recommended video: YouTubers Don't Understand: Non-Binary People | Messy Elliott
: Creates very polished socialist critiques and explorations of economic topics
Recommended video: Why People Who Need Redistribution Hate It: The Free Market & You

Recommended video: What Jordan Peterson Gets Wrong About Marx, Postmodernism and The Left.
: The channel's description sums it up best, "Non-Compete is a leftist blog and video series dedicates to the principles of intersectionalist liberation, anarchism, communism, and puppet shows." Does videos similar to the style of Peter Coffin addressing specific leftist issues alongside a podcast with other leftists mentioned on this list like AngieSpeaks and RadicalReviewer.
Recommended video: The Red Pill is a CULT
: Creates ‘debunking’ videos similar to the Potholer54 format José uses, and addressing similar topics. He’s done videos responding to Matt Christiansen, Steven Crowder, Ben Shapiro and PragerU.
Recommended video: Ten Horrible Ben Shapiro Arguments Debunked
: Previously focused on reviewing leftist books and other media, but as of about a day ago has branched out into response videos to right-wing lunatics.
Recommended video: Stefan Molyneux Doesn't Understand Anarchism
: Creates very Hbomberguy-esque videos responding to shitty arguments and videos from the skeptic community and alt-right. Like Hbomb he talks to the camera and includes performative comedy bits.
Recommended video: South Africa & The Far Right | PART 1
(placed in limited state by YouTube because the alt-right reported it for the clips from other people he includes who themselves were not flagged)
: Debunking channel featuring videos exposing Gandhi, defending Christopher Columbus, and going after the likes of Winston Churchill. “Now you know better”
Recommended Video: Going After Gandhi: A Perverted Purity Sarcasmitron
: Another ‘debunker’ in the Potholer format. Has responded to Paul Joseph Watson, Ben Shapiro, No Bullshit and Stefan Molyneux in between video game and politics related shitposts.
Recommended video: The Truth About Paul Joseph Watson (For Real) Thom Avella
: Similar to hbomberguy's style but more vlog-based. Rebuts right-wing videos but also has a series called 'Buzzwords from the Right' where he specifically debunks misused terms and slurs used by that side like to chastise us.
Recommended video: What "Questions for SJWs" Taught Me About YouTube Antifeminism
: Anarchist who explains the tenents of his ideology and occasionally responds to right-wing dipshits.
Recommended video: We don't talk about She-Ra
(sorry to have two She-Ra related videos in a row, but this truly is my favourite thing this guy’s done) Xexizy
: Marxist who both promotes socialist ideology and critiques those who misrepresent and slander it such as PragerU, Ben Shapiro and Jordan Peterson.
Recommended video: Different Kinds of Marxism Explained Bat’ko The Manarchist:
Bat’ko is a leftist prominent on leftypol. He makes hilarious and clever songs about IDPOL and Stalin using classic Russian choir songs
Recommended Video: Best Of Leftypol Choir
) She covers movies/films, often utilizes a leftist frame, and sometimes dives into topics related to being trans. azureScapegoat:
Marxist who promotes socialist ideology; one of the most prominent features of this channel is an explainer series of videos on Cuba’s economic and political system. Noteworthy also for a video where he carefully clarifies the distinctions between socialism, communism, and modern communism.
Recommended video: How Democracy Works In Cuba
: Very new anti-capitalist channel. Critiques capitalist arguments ('Capitalist Philanthropy and Charity, why it doesn't work'), defends criticism of the left (Re: PragerUniversity on LEFTISTS and TOLERANCE) and promotes a Marxist praxis through everyday needs (see below).

Creates long and short videos on how to survive capitalism, make propaganda fun, subvert the system, and gives us that pure pure crystalline ideology we so desperately desire; straight to the jugular. Recommended Video:
ProSocialism: Small Trotskyist channel with videos on the bolsheviks, Lenin, and the Russian Revolution.
Recommended Video: The Russian Revolution Of 1905 Aphreditto:
A leftist channel devoted to anarchist and anti-capitalist alternative education that pairs EDM with lectures and audiobooks by historical and contemporary thinkers.

: A philosophy channel that discusses Anarchism, Feminism, and Marxism.
Recommended Video: Ben Shapiro doesn’t understand intersectionality
- Media essayists and critics:
: Does video essays on film, TV and video games with a very political slant. Analysing the Christian propaganda of the God’s Not Dead series, the preachy style of 1950s propaganda shorts, and what he believed to be the shallow politics of Black Mirror (as well as other less political analyses of movies like The Room and Disney films). He has recently branched out into much more overtly political content, creating videos which refuted arguments in Cassie Jaye’s men’s rights film ‘The Red Pill’ and the videos of Prager University.
Recommended video: The Red Pill: The Strange Art of Men's Rights Activism (Part 1) donoteat01
: Brought to my attention through comments. A fascinating channel using the game Cities: Skylines to illustrate the socioeconomic impacts the urban planning of cities can have on people's lives, both through the development in cities in history and in their redevelopment today. If you're interested in class analysis this series will be perfect for you.
Recommended video: Cities: Skylines | Power, Politics, & Planning: Episode 3: Gentrification
: While not too overtly political, a leftist sense of justice and morality is pervasive in all Dan Olson’s work on this channel. He creates very lengthy analyses of movies and cultural events like last year’s weird YouTube kids video algorithm. Perhaps his most politically potent work though is the video I’ll link down below.
Recommended video: Triumph of the Will and the Cinematic Language of Propaganda
: Film critic specialising in art cinema, but always from a socially left-wing perspective. While this political aspect is clear in all his reviews, often he does do videos exploring politics a lot more overtly such as below.
Recommended video: From Caligari to Hitler: Imagining the Tyrant - Between the Lines Lindsay Ellis
: Like Olson and Kallgren, Ellis started back in the day on That Guy With The Glasses, but has since transcended that prison into a phenomenal film critic. She uses dry humour and widely recognisable pop culture (her favourite subjects being Disney and Transformers) to look at intersecting social and political trends. While she’s often spoken from a feminist perspective, her recent work has begun delving into Marxist analysis in a way she’s very accessibly explained to the wide audience who watch her.
Recommended video: Marxism! | The Whole Plate Episode 9 Jack Saint / LackingSaint
: Formerly did animations, now does video essays with political themes like in the link below. Also interesting is his parody of anti-SJW film reviews 'Rational Big Boy DEMOLISHES SJW Propaganda: 12 Angry Men'.
Recommended video: Sky High: Disney's Fascist Eugenics Movie Pop Culture Detective
: Despite the current cultural backlash to social justice, this guy has somehow gotten away with making video essay after video essay with millions of views criticising the portrayal of toxic masculinity in film and television, while celebrating the non-normative gender archetypes in media like Steven Universe.
Recommended video: The Adorkable Misogyny of The Big Bang Theory Renegade Cut
: Another long-form video essayist, but has a particular emphasis on analysing social justice in film. His work includes critical readings of the white privilege themes of ‘Get Out’, the perhaps accidental Ayn Randian/Objectivist themes of ‘The Incredibles’, and as seen below, the contentious approach to racism of ‘Three BillBoards Outside Ebbing, Missouri’.
Recommended video: How (Not) to Discuss Racism in Film - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri | Renegade Cut
Step Back History
: A history channel exploring important events from a progressive perspective. Has done videos addressing topics the right tends to obscure or ignore the truth of like, the pre-Columbian Americans (see below), 20th century communism, the rise of ISIS, anarchism during the Spanish Civil War and many others.

I was making edits to A Beginner Guide written by a Beginner and Updated by a Friend
when it gave me the error message that the post had too many characters. I decided it was honestly too wordy. I hope that the clarity of the message was not lost during the chopping process. Light suggestions and/or questions are welcome. I added this to the wiki
as well after updating it due to your suggestions :)
The guide starts with day 1 "need to know" information then proceeds with Characters you Want, the Daily Grind, More to Grind, Comic Cards, Character Optimization, and finally a Quick Start Glossary. First Month Goals
Content Difficulty Progression
- Get your first Tier-2. You get a T2 ticket after logging in for 30 days. I would recommend Sharon, Elsa, or Carnage. Keep working on their gears to 20/20/20/20 in preparation for this (need ±366 bios for max gears).
- Beat 'Hard' Villain Siege: Sharon should do the job nicely.
- Beat Alliance Battle every day. Your score should increase every day from week to week until you "beat it" for that day (166,750 for mob days and 210,500 for Frosty+mobs) and have access to extreme alliance battle. You will need a strong Sharon, Loki, Iron Fist (w/uni), and Elsa (T2 and uni) or some other variation of blast, universal, combat, speed, female, and villain.
- Beat all World Bosses. Get nine 6* characters for 3 daily wins. There are no restrictions to who you can use, but you can only use a character in the main battle once. So you'll eventually need 5 good teams which will likely have Sharon, Iron Fist, Elsa, Loki, and somebody else plus some decent leaders and strikers (Ignore Dodge for Corvus).
- Get five good 4 star cards that all have skill cooldown and ignore defense. This will take a lot of time, but the earlier you work on this the better. You get cards from rifts.
- Clear as many floors as possible of Shadowland. You will need strong 6* characters. By strong I mean really strong. Gear up your World Boss and Alliance Battle clearers. Try Iron Fist or Loki for floor one. As motivation floors 5, 10, and 15 reward bio selectors and the 1st time clear rewards include rank up tickets.
This is a rough estimation of the progression of the game using the character level as a reference. Villain Siege
, Alliance Battle
, Alliance Conquest
. Starter Team: 6* Sharon Rogers, Loki, and any top character of your choice
This can be done with the 6* selector (day 1), the 6* selector (day 7), and "Hero's Journey".
A "Six Star Selector" allows for you to choose a character from a menu and that character is immediately 6* regardless of whether you recruited them or not.
For your 2nd and 3rd starter characters there are conflicting recommendations which to me proves it doesn't really matter who you choose, but be warned that not all characters are created equally so it is best to choose from these or the difficult to farm "Facetank" characters listed further down.
- Sharon Rogers is essentially a must have. Neglecting to 6* her will be a significant detriment to your game progression.
- Loki is a very beginner friendly character that is highly recommended in part due to him being a villain.
- Robbie Reyes is also very user friendly with several iframes (cannot be targeted) and a shield. He could be a Universal Class alternative, but he is not villain.
- If you do not choose Loki you would need to get a villain elsewhere: farm Loki from Rifts, farm Sandman from specials, pay 6600 crystals for Magneto, or get Enchantress/Carnage from the bio $ubscription
- Ancient One is highly recommended as your third 6* due to his incredible supportive roll with attack leadership (for Sharon) and a healing bubble. Not to mention he can solo a SL rumble and would also speed up the Dr. Strange Epic Quest.
- Other recommended characters that are difficult to farm include: Red Hulk, Mantis, and Silk.
- Unfortunately X-men cannot be obtained through 6 star selectors or bio selectors.
Check out the analysis/discussion from "Starter toons: Sharon Rogers and _________?"
and decide for yourself, but definitely
get Sharon Rogers. After your first "failed" mission it is highly recommended to get 4 star Iron Fist.
Get his Hobo (netflix) Uni when you have the chance. Farm Enough Story Mission Bios to 6 Star Cap, Widow, and Iron Man.
Both Cap and Iron Man will be very useful additions to your team. Black Widow can be good, but as a beginner will be mostly useful as a striker in the Corvus Glaive World Boss battle.
You can get Age of Ultron unis for gold. Use your 3 day trial of bio subscription for "Paywall" characters
I would recruit Enchantress, Agent Venom, and Kid Kaiju who are all still useful at T1. I would only use them on Carnage if you plan on paying for a bio subscription to T2 him (need ~366 bios to max gears). You will still need to get Mega Rank Up Tickets (2600 Crystals on weekend) to rank them up. T2 Carnage > Agent Venom > Kid Kaiju > Enchantress > Ironheart > Hyperion > T1 Carnage The best deals for real money include Stark Stash, Bio Subscription, VIP Package, and S.H.I.E.L.D.
Prices vary slightly depending on where you live and whether you use android or Apple (android is cheaper), but these are generally the best deals:
- Stark Stash: 200 crystals upfront (goes towards VIP) and 75 crystals for 30 days worth of logins for 2450 crystals total.
- Bio Subscription: 300 crystals upfront (goes towards VIP) and then a 20 bios daily for 30 days. This is the only way to unlock and get bios for "exclusive" paywall characters (Carnage, Enchantress, Agent Venom, Kid Kaiju, Ironheart, Hyperion). Paywall characters are prime candidates for "mega rank up tickets" (take any hero you've recruited and bring them to 6*).
- VIP Package: this pops ups at least once a day and offers 4400 crystals plus a mega rank up ticket (MRUT) and mega mastery ticket. The crystals go toward your VIP bar. Note that the offer changes at VIP 11+.
- At low VIP's there is a 5$ package for a 6* selector. That would also be a good value.
- "Reach S.H.I.E.L.D. Level": This is about the same cost as an early VIP package, and some of the rewards are similar, but over time it will be an even better deal.
You don't need to spend money to be successful in this game, but I would highly recommend at least getting the Stark Stash (or bio sub) to get to VIP 1 (200 Crystals) for increased gold in Co-Op
. You'll also hear a lot about "tag heals" which is unlocked at VIP 3 (2300 crystals total), and "Heroic Rifts" which are unlocked at VIP 10 (99,000 crystals total). The best deals for Crystals include on sale uniforms (750), Mega Rank Up Tickets (2600), and "Deluxe" pack (6600). Get in as high level alliance as you can (ideally 24+)
Use the weekly recruitment thread
to join an Alliance for camaraderie, alliance stat boosts, alliance member rifts, energy rewards, and Alliance Battle/Conquest. Note that the stat boosts from Alliances
You may see Alliance requirements including days of activity, Alliance Battle
score, and Alliance Conquest
participation. Even so, there are so many alliances out there that the odds are good that you can find a good balance between casual and competitive. There will also be a variety in beginner and veterans. But let's be honest, veterans need beginners around to tell them that they are awesome :) Don't go "all in" on Epic Quests (Dr. Strange and Wolverine/Jean), rather dip your feet!
Dr. Strange, Wolverine, and Jean are all amazing, but the cost is significantly above a beginner's paygrade. I would however recommend completing enough quests to start farming Baron Mordo (need 50 Red Norns and 200 Blue Norns) and Rogue/Beast (need 100 Dimension Debris and 100 Red Norns). Rogue (speed) and Beast (combat) are perfect complements to your Sharon/Loki starter pack. For more information: Dr. Strange Epic Quest Guide

- Daisy: can transfer her skill 3 to massively increase damage (180% increase "1 attack"). The amount of damage is increased by her Quake uniform ("2 attacks") and by her T2 (+15% ignore defense and 100% chance to penetrate barrier, shield, and damage immunity).
- Coulson: At T2 gives team-wide stat boosts to heroes: +20% to crit rate and +45% damage to villains.
- Groot‡: Can be switched in to drop healing circle (skill 3). At T2 gives team-wide heal proc. Uniforms make him very flexible (Main is combat; Throot is universal; Baby is speed)

The Daily Grind:
Complete each of the daily "challenges". Most of these modes should be done during Hot Time (reduced cost and increased rewards) which occurs twice a day for 3 hours (6 AM/PM Pacific Time). Most can also be played on "auto" by using clear tickets. For Story missions you can "autoclear" which will insta-clear the level giving you gold and shield/alliance experience, but it will not
give your characters experience. Story missions (1+/day)
: Complete story mode chapters up to 10 as soon as you can. You can level characters more quickly using higher levels. After you have done such, here's a list of story mode characters (alphabetical) that you might want to get:
Special missions (20 min/day):
- Black Panther: He now is strong even at T1 once he is 6*and is one of the best farmable combat characters.
- Black Widow: Very strong speed char for non spenders and ignore dodge striker for Corvus.
- Blackbolt: only 10 bios a day, so slow to farm, but one of the elite T2s now.
- Captain America: Easily farmable plus damage immunity on skill 1.
- Daisy: Support char as mentioned above. Really lackluster otherwise.
- Deathlok: +30% physical attack Leadership and is an Ignore dodge striker (for Corvus Glaive in World Boss). Really lackluster otherwise.
- Elektra: recently rebalanced with iframes and a stun.
- Ghost Rider: With uni can gain invulnerability to be a facetank like character, T2 allows him to beat all the WBs with some practice
- Iron Fist: Needs his "Hobo" (Netflix) uni but can then kill WBs pretty easy. T2 boosts survivability further.
- Lincoln: decent survivability and "hit-lock" attacks.
- Thor: Very powerful with Unworthy thor uni.
- Other leadership chars as listed above (Ultron, Modok, Winter Soldier, War Machine, Punisher, Lincoln etc based on what you need).
Daily Missions (2/day) Fairly easy missions with great rewards including: gold and the option for Iso-8/nornstones, more gold/experience chips, or M'kraan Shards (X-men material). Villain Siege (1-3/day)
|Rank ||New Avengers ||Inhumans |
|1 ||Songbird ||Crystal |
|2 ||Wiccan ||Gorgon |
|3 ||White Tiger ||Moon Girl |
|4 ||Squirrel Girl ||Maximus |
|5 ||Hulkling ||Karnak |
This is a fossil of previous “end-game” content. It is more important that you win the battle then you use all of the recommended characters. If you know it will take you two tries, then use a team with NO recommended characters first, followed by one with 2-3 of the recommended characters.
Use the Chaos Tokens for: Elsa >> Chaos Custom Gear Chest/Chaos Chest > Ant-man > Lash Timeline (1-10/day)
A "one vs. one" matchup that gives honor tokens for each battle (win or lose) and crystals at the end of the week for how high you scored in comparison to others. Note that your characters start with all skills on cooldown while the enemy's do not. At least do one a day, but it would be worth it to do all of them.
Use the Tokens on Captain Marvel > Warwolf > Honor Card Chest/Honor Chest > Gamora
More to Grind Alliance Battle Great source of gold, norns, and bios. Here's a chart of who to use from my Alliance Battle Guide:
Dimension Rift (3 "completions") Coordinate Rifts with alliance members to get completion bonus (gold, dimension debris, energy). MFF etiquette strongly suggests you commit to several battles in a rift if you choose to enter it.
|Day ||Main Damage ||Leader ||Support ||Notes |
|Open (x2; reset day) ||Loki, Sharon, Hellstorm, Strange ||She-Hulk, Ancient One, Gorgon, Hela ||Warwolf (T2), Coulson (T2), Groot (T2) ||save combat/villain (i.e. Carnage) for XAB |
|Combat ||Hobo Iron Fist, Agent Venom, Carnage, Black Panther, Moon Knight, Red Hulk, Captain America ||She-Hulk, Hulk, Shang-Chi ||Groot (T2), Warwolf (T2) ||save T2 Warwolf for XAB, unless you have T2 Coulson. |
|Blast ||Sharon, Enchantress, Strange, Mantis, Cyclops ||Ancient One, Star-Lord ||Coulson (T2) || |
|Speed ||Elsa (L), Kate, Rogue, Silk, Kid Kaiju ||Elsa, Winter Soldier ||Baby Groot (T2) ||Speed day is tough. Get Elsa's uni and her T2. |
|Universal ||Loki, Hellstorm, GR (Robbie Reyes), Captain Marvel, Black Order, Dmmu, Odin ||Ronan, Medusa, Hela ||Throot (T2) ||Loki strikes again. |
|Female ||Sharon, Floki, Elsa, Mantis, Rogue ||Hela, Ancient One (uni) ||Ancient One (uni) ||Starog is easier than Loki (uni) and would allow Floki to be used for XAB as DPS (if no BO) or team-up (w/DMMU). |
|Villain ||Loki, Enchantress ||Ronan, Hela ||n/a ||Looookiii |
Cards to farm: Loki, Nebula, Baby Groot, Star-Lord/Yondu, Zombies (Heroic Rifts), and Punisher (Heroic Rifts)
Characters to farm: Loki > Wasp/Yellowjacket/Groot > Ronan > others Co-Op (5 "Rewards" collections)
It is worth it to increase your VIP to 1 for its benefit in Co-Op alone. There are 8 reward slots that open with increasing VIP. VIP 1 opens the GOLD slot. Otherwise the first slot is random (giving you a chance for gold).
Epic Quest Missions
|Characters at 4 stars & level 40 ||Stage ||~Gold per ”Reward Acquired” |
|0 ||Stage 1 ||~260,000 |
|21+ ||Stage 2 ||~280,000 |
|41+ ||Stage 3 ||~320,000 |

Memory Missions, Dark Dimension, Tracking, Veiled Secret, and Mutual Enemy will eventually become part of your "daily grind," but as a beginner focus only on farming Rogue and Beast from the X-men "Tracking" missions. It might also be worth farming Baron Mordo from Dr. Strange Memory Mission "Road to the Monastery" partially due to the extra obelisks. World Boss Invasion (unlimited)
Your characters will be temporarily maxed for this co-op boss battle. Be sure to read and follow the requirements as best you can. Push the purple button when available. Slot boxes for later and then open them for random norns, bios, and other resources. World Bosses
Gives black anti-matter, chaos norns, and bios for the black order (BO) characters. One of your primary goals of the game should be to beat world bosses as soon as possible. A few pointers:
- Proxima: Just kill her.
- Black Dwarf: Use Energy attackers. If you can't destroy shield while charging then switch out right before blast. Considered about as hard as Thanos.
- Corvus Glaive: Use "Ignore Dodge" strikers (Kate, Agent Venom, Song-bird, Agent 13, Black Widow, and Deathlok). Revives twice for 3 total deaths.
- Supergiant: Use Physical attackers. If you can't destroy shield while charging then switch out right before blast.
- Ebony Maw: Don't stand in the yellow pillars.
- Thanos: Might benefit to use "Movement speed" strikers (Proxima, Corvus, Wasp) if the meteors mess you up.
- Infinity Thanos: Pretty dang hard. Might benefit to use "Movement speed" strikers (Proxima, Corvus, Wasp) if the meteors mess you up.
Once unlocked and clearing 30/35 build up: Strange >>>> Corvus/Proxima > Odin/Dormammu/Jean >> Thanos > Ebony/Supergiant >>>> Black Dwarf.
World Boss Ultimate is ridiculously challenging. Shadowland
A "transition" into end game content, but you can do it! Try your best to get farther each week. Floors 5, 10, and 15 reward bio selectors. These are my Six Pieces of Advice for Shadowland:
- Force low tier characters to clear difficult low floors. Save T2 for floors 10+
- Plan out all static floors (1, 2, 5, 21-25) but especially floors 22 and 23 (and floor 5 for a beginner).
- Keep Track of your Roster.
- Unless you want a specific reward avoid Waves, Rumbles, Reflects, Bleeds, and Spider-Army
- Keep Track of your Clears and Analyze for Improvement
- Have Fun, Take Your Time, and Good Luck!
First time clear rewards are incredible including rank up tickets, cards, awakened iso, and Black Anti-matter for Epic Quests and ranking up Native T2's. Battleworld (1-10/day “when active”)
Occasional event that can reward bios, iso, obelisks, and cards. I would at least do one to get “on the board” and get some reward. It is usually good to max your participation if you can just for the gold participation rewards though which scale up with number of entries. Alliance Conquest
Depending on the activity of your alliance you may be required (or encouraged) to participate in this incredible, interactive battle game between 3 alliances. It is reminiscent of the world domination game Risk
It has two phases: the obvious Attack phase (3 times a day) and the slightly more confusing "prep" phase. During prep phase all you can do is revive defeated character with alliance tokens from the store or switch defending characters with crystals. It will be difficult to contribute much until you get a few 6* characters.
Comic Cards Offer Huge Team-wide Stat Boosts
Check out this awesome card guide
. You want to work on building 4* cards with Skill Cooldown and Ignore Defense and then slowly replace those cards with 4*, 5* and 6* cards with Skill Cooldown, Ignore Defense, and Attack. Here are some great cards with "ideal rolls" from Comic Cards INFO
It is very expensive to "unequip" cards, obelisks, and iso.
|Card (Acquired) ||Stat 1* (static) ||Stat 2* (static) ||Stat 3* ||Stat 4* ||Stat 5* ||Stat 6* |
|Loki (Loki Rift) ||All Attack ||Cooldown duration ||Ignore Defense ||Attack Speed ||All Defense ||Energy/Physical Attack |
|Marvel Zombies #2 (any Heroic Rift) ||Dodge ||Cooldown duration ||Critical Damage ||Ignore Defense ||Recovery Rate ||All Attack |
|Baby Groot (Groot Rift) ||Critical Damage ||Ignore Defense ||Energy Attack ||Cooldown duration ||All Defense ||All Attack/Physical Attack |
|Star-Lord (Yondu Rift) ||Ignore Defense ||Critical Rate ||Physical Attack ||Cooldown duration ||All Defense ||All Attack/Energy Attack |
|Avengers (Nebula Rift) ||Max HP ||Ignore Defense ||All Attack/Physical Attack ||Cooldown duration ||Critical Damage ||Energy Attack |
|Punisher #19 (any Heroic Rift) ||Ignore Defense ||Attack Speed ||Max HP ||Cooldown Duration ||All Defense ||All Attack |
|Civil War #4/Thor (Crystal Card Chests) ||All Attack ||Physical Defense ||Physical Attack ||Cooldown duration ||Critical Damage ||Ignore Defense/Energy Attack |
Build them up in your inventory before you equip.
Character optimization for damage/survivability balance First off: skills that increase by % (i.e. summons, buffs, and shields) should be upgraded. Gears are built similarly for every character
out for more in depth explanation, but this is the basics:
|Gear ||1st slot ||2nd slot ||the rest |
|1† ||Energy/Physical attack per lvl ||"base" energy/physical or all attack ||"base" energy/physical or all attack |
|2 ||Physical defense per lvl ||Energy defense per lvl ||All defense |
|3 ||HP per lv ||HP per lvl or HP ||HP |
|4 ||Skill Cooldown in as many slots needed to get 50% ||Ignore Defense in leftover slots (until 50%) ||Crit damage, attack speed, or crit rate if both SCD and Ignore Defense are maxed |
† You need to figure out if a character has attacks that base off of energy or phyical. From there you only want one or the other. A bit confusing.
Aim for 17/17/17/17 on characters you use semi-regularly and 20/20/20/20 on your main characters (required for T2 ticket). Attack Iso Sets (OD, POAH, HE) tend to be the best in the long run, but heal (IAAG, SB) and Shield (DDE, BP) have their place.
As a beginner you will likely need survivability boosting until you can max your skill cooldown. It is easiest to roll Stark Backing (heal set), but I am Also Groot (heal set) is better. Drastic Density Enhancement is a shield skill that procs on attack. Binary is a Shield on Defense. As I've moved through the game I have found that I want an attack set (Overdrive, Power of Angry Hulk, or Hawk's eye) on essentially all of my characters. Note that Hawk's Eye can lead to redundant SCD and lacking Ignore Defense.
Don't equip fully awakened Iso unless you for sure want to keep a set (i.e. not Stark Backing, but yes OD or POAH). Equipping 3* or 4* iso on most of your characters should be fine. You can equip 5* and 6* iso on your main World Boss and Alliance battle hitters. Obelisks ideally should have some attack stats and either a damage increase "1 attack" or an invincibility proc.
For Obelisk building start with:
- Increase HP or Recovery rate (to match with a heal set or heal passive)
- Attack stat (ignore defense, critical damage, fire damage)
- Guard Break Immunity (especially for characters with long wind-ups or long non-iframe animations)
- Stun resist (for characters only used in Shadowland)
- Snare resist (for combat hero XAB)
- Ignore dodge (for speed hero XAB)
and then upgrade/change option until you get a good proc. Ideally increase damage "1 attack" (any mode but especially XAB) or invincibility (any mode but especially timeline and alliance conquest). Uniforms: Never buy uniforms unless they are on sale (750 or less)
. I would not buy uniforms just for the sake of increasing the stats of another uniform wearer. There is always a benefit from buying a uniform for a character that you use, but there are definitely a few "game-changers":
Tier-2 T2 will always increase a character's overall power, but there are a few that are particularly useful. When looking to Tier 2 a character take particular note of how their skills may change and possible team-wide boosts.
- Sharon (Starlight): a significant damage boost to an already stellar character. Really useful for clearing end game content like World Boss (including Ultimate), Shadowlands, and Timeline.
- Iron Fist ("Hobo"/Netflix): a huge "game-changer" uniform granting a heal/invincibility proc when below 30% health plus an iframe on skill 5 and a damage immunity on skill 2. Takes mediocre, easily farmable character and makes him amazing.
- Red Hulk: Significantly increases heal and adds a damage immunity on skill 3.
- Elsa (Monsters): is the equivalent of a T2 in terms of upgrade. Elsa still needs to be T2 to be truly viable as a character, but she needs her uniform to be a damage beast. Elsa with uni at T2 may not be the top speed character (Kid Kaiju or Kate), but is likely the most reliable.
- Loki (Lady Loki): This one isn't purely game changing in terms of power like all the others, just that Loki is so amazing at T1 and able to help new players so much that the uniform makes sense. It lets you enter 1 additional day of alliance battle and likely get one additional clear as well. Early on, that's a lot of extra resources.
- Dr. Strange: adds a heal to his two star skill which is also a high dps skill which you can spam to death to always stay at full health if you get hit.
- Silk: adds an extra second to web, and in Shadowlands, it turns Silk into an automatic win for virtually any stage she qualifies for if you have an attack set on with a little skill, you can permanently web everyone.
- Black Bolt (tux): adds a significant damage boost which can stack with damage procs of obelisks.
- Wasp: a slight, but noticeable change to her skill kit which allows for more time in her damage immunity bubble.
- Amadeus Cho: Great buff from new 5 skill and uni's passive.
Elsa, Black Bolt, and Carnage absolutely need their T2. They gain a damage immunity (invincibility for Carnage) on one of their skills which significantly increases their survivability.
Support characters have significant team boosts at T2 which may make their T2 of higher priority than other "worth it" T2's. These include Coulson, Warwolf, Groot, Wasp, and Mantis. Skill Rotations
When using a character, the order of skills you use can have a significant impact on survivability and damage output. Try to prioritize higher damaging skills (usually 5, 4, and 3) and buffs (usually skill 5 or 3) while also preventing overlapping survivability mechanisms (damage immunity, iframes, guard-hit shields, and crowd control). As an example look at Sharon's skills:
|Damage Immunity ||... ||... ||i ||frame |
|3 ||1c ||5 ||2c ||4(c) |
Skill 3 starts the damage immunity. Skill 1 is a non-iframe skill. Skill 5 ends in an iframe and the beginning of skills 2 and 4 are both iframes. You could also just do 3-5-4 with similar reasoning. With the Starlight uni do not cancel skill 4 (the iframe/main damage is at the end).
I've compiled a list of skill rotations
specifically for Shadowland, but also useful for any other mode. Keep in in mind that stun-type debuffs have no effect on World Bosses (other than Skill 2 "Charm" of Enchantress). Uru are a huge resource sink-hole that become increasingly available to you from level 60-70
They can fill in the cracks of your character build after you have used up your gear options. Do not try to get mythic uru unless you are willing to sell your soul
rather shoot for 4* and maybe
5*. Once you are at level 70 try the following algorithm:
- Fill all empty uru slots with worthless 1* uru (physical defense) then amplify until you have 3-4 shiny spots.
- Equip 2 attack uru (energy or physical) on each gear in the amplified spots.
- Max Skill cooldown at 50% (200=1%).
- Max Ignore Defense at 50%. (200=1%).
- Equip whatever you feel the character needs. Critical Damage/Critical Rate are solid options (boost at about 2:1 ratio). Attack speed is useful, but not for every character (shortens iframe time). HP and Energy Defense is great for Destroyer. Dodge might be useful.
If you only have a few slots available then I would focus on SCD and Ignore Defense, but recognize the uru you equip might not be there to stay. Amplifying is RNG (as most things in this game are) and you may end up with redundant stats (i.e. a slot with SCD or Ignore Defense gets amplified).
Lab upgrades (especially Item Shop) may have some value**
How much you actually want to upgrade these things is up to personal preference, but imho it is generally too costly. But you can get a second opinion
- Anti-matter generator: This one is important for the Anti-matter that is used to upgrade gears. Anti-matter is also used elsewhere in the lab like missions and upgrades. Doesn't have to be a super high priority, but upgrading a few times is worth it.
- Item Shop: This can be a very useful place to get Gear Up Kits and Dimension Debris. You will need a lot of those materials so it is worth it to invest some money in the upgrades. At lvl 11 the store resets every 30 minutes.
- Warp device: This one has its uses because everyone loves free bios, but after a certain number of upgrades it just becomes tedious to click on each of the missions. Plus you likely won't have the anti-matter needed to send out your characters.
- Converter: This was a rip-off until they introduced X-men materials. The bio conversion is random so not much use. The norn conversion is mediocre at best. The X-men materials however are a bit trickier to come by, but you sacrifice an already "tricky to come by" material: black anti-matter.
