Arena Defense is a very important segment of the Marvel Strike Force because the heroes in your Arena Defense team defend your Arena ranking from other players. Those heroes are led by computer’s A.I. which is not very smart and some heroes who are great for Offense are not that good for Defense.
This Tier List measures the behavior of heroes and minions when they are led by the computer and their durability and effectiveness in the single 5-minute fight. There are five tiers in this Tier List which are sorted from the strongest Tier (Tier 1) to the weakest Tier (Tier 5)
