Assist tiers for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 by the EventHubs community We've compiled the assist tier rankings for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 that we asked the EventHubs community to contribute to on the forums.

A huge thanks goes to Zombiebrian, Fatmus2, Whitty, Caliostro and JetX for compiling these listings and running the polls. These guys by far did the most heavy lifting and really put a lot of effort into this project to make this happen, so they very much deserve a shout out for their efforts.

The poll is broken down into 5 letter grades with S being the highest and D being the lowest. Please keep in mind the rankings are sorted alphabetically within each letter grade. The entire list is available after the jump for you to check out, but here's a quick breakdown of how many character's assists were put into each letter grade, out of the 150 total.

Note: For powered up assists, like Hsien-Ko's and Arthur's, keep in mind that the effectiveness of the assist and also how difficult it is to power it up were also taken into consideration in the overall letter grade.

S rank: 9
A rank: 27
B rank: 72
C rank: 40
D rank: 2
