The fight in the Marvel Contest of Champions just became even more interesting with the upcoming addition of two new champions this September. The first is the mutant Kitty Pride who brings her adorable companion along. Second is the ultimate Sentinel known as Nimrod.

The Youngest X-Man

For those who don’t have an idea who they are, we’ll give you clues. Let’s start with Katherine “Kitty” Pryde. Kitty was living a normal teenage life when her mutant powers emerged and this led to a series of painful headaches.

When Phoenix learned of her potential, she used telepathy to coerce Kitty’s parents and let her join Xavier’s School for Gifted Youngsters. It was during Kitty’s stay at the school that she became part of the X-Men, the youngest member in fact.

During her adventures, she managed to make friends with a small alien creature, one that resembled a dragon, named Lockheed. Since then, the two have been inseparable.

The Mutant Killer

Nimrod was constructed in a time where all mutants in the world have been wiped out by advanced robotic beings. The ultimate sentinel eventually came to a realization that it would no longer be able to perform its main directive, which was to destroy all mutants. That’s because there were no mutants left. Nimrod, therefore, left his original timeline and went to alternate timelines to remove mutants from the multiverse.

What are your thoughts on the two new characters?
