Champions are powerful heroes and villains recruited from across the multiverse to fight against the impending Crisis. As a Protector, you direct their movements and attacks in coordination with your team and to defeat your enemies. There are currently 43 playble champions.
Champions are sorted in several different main roles: Assassins (Champions with mobility and burst damage.), Blasters (Powerful spellcasters.), Bruisers (Warriors and fighters.), Controllers (Champions with supportive skills.), Enforcers (Tanks with crowd control and zoning skills.), and finally Marksmen (Champions that deal most of their damage with Basic Attacks.). Apart from that, champions are classified by the type of Damage they utilize: Attack Damage or Power Damage (though there are a few that utilize both kinds of Damage, called Hybrid Damage dealers.).
While most champions must be manually unlocked with Merit (currency gained by playing matches or meeting certain objectives) or Crisis Coins (cash currency) to use them, there are several that can be obtained by completing the tutorial course. These champions are: Batman, Gaslight Batman, Doomsday, Green Lantern, Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman. Additionally, The Joker can be unlocked by simply logging into the game several days in a row. Apart from that, there always a pool of free Champions that changes regularly.
The more you play a Champion, the more experience they gain, eventually raising their level and unlocking rewards like their Unique Stolen Powers, special cosmetic frames, and even a special Protector icon.
