Viscant's UMvC3 Team Tier List: 2013 Edition

In response to the many MMCafe individual tier lists produced by members of the community, Seth Killian challenged people to do something more practical and tier the game by teams.   After all, Marvel 3 is a team game and the rank of any individual character is both hard to pin down and somewhat meaningless by itself.
