Character Balancing, Betas and Buffs

Note: Last Updated 2/20/20

Latest Update: Per Dave’s latest interview with Kabam Developers, the Hulkbuster Beta is slated for April, with a release of the rework scheduled for the June update.

After a champion is released, Kabam plans to review game data and announce character balancing (up or down) before the champion joins the basic pool. The actual character revisions will go live approximately 90 days after the announcement. Additionally, Kabam will sometimes do extensive character reworks and beta tests for under-performing champions. Below is a list of the current status of champion balancing and reworks.
