7.4 to 7.4b
Added a new tier, "Niche Meta", for characters that are "meta" but only for very specific uses (e.g. one ABX day, one Squad Battle bracket). This consists entirely of characters that used to be in the Meta tier.
Since this is technically still a 7.4 Tier List, the borders for the previous version have not been removed (e.g. Daredevil still marked red for "demoted"). Despite being "demoted", Wave retains her white border since she is still "new".
Niche Meta Demotions
Combat Blast Speed Universal Apocalypse, Maker, Venom, X-23 -- Corvus Glaive, Luna Snow, Bullseye Proxima Midnight, Scarlet Witch, Ghost Rider, Captain Marvel
- War Machine moved up from A Tier #1 to Meta #4.
- Wave moved down from bottom of Meta to top of Support Meta.

Snapshots of previous updates' Tier List placements are available below.7.1
- Placements are decided based on characters' overall usefulness, not their raw power. A character that is "weaker" than another may be ranked higher just because there is a niche they can fill.
- Characters are graded according to their type (i.e. Combat, Blast, Speed, Universal). Comparisons are not intended to be made between different types, even if they are in the same row.
- The cost of acquiring/building characters is not taken into account.
- The rankings below A-tier are less exact than the higher rows.
- Note that putting C.T.P.s on anyone below Meta is only recommended if you really like a specific character or if you're a whale. The C.T.P.s listed are not advising you to equip that C.T.P. on that character, they are just showing what is optimal.
- Some C.T.P. recommendations may not be 100% correct. It is advised that you look for more detailed information on specific characters you want to build, rather than looking at this list, which is intended to be a quick overview.
- The easiest way to provide feedback will be on the Reddit threads that are posted for each major update's Tier List.
