The game will automatically place you into the last mission you unlocked, with the hero you need to complete it with. This lets you circumvent those unpleasant situations where you have to play as, say, Black Widow, but you managed to get yourself stuck as Ms Marvel.

And, of course, there’s always the chance to pick your desired character before you enter any strike or similar missions.
