The Thing: Is he good without synergies?

Hiya "the thing" fans,

I just pulled this guy and been consuming several youtubers gameplay showing the crazy damage and potential. However, between "the champ" and all the cheat death synergies heimdals/helas/angelas etc I've seen... I can't put together a team that would help me with higher-end content like act 6. The only other >5*s I have is Invisible Woman and Mr. Fantastic.

Anyway, synergies and the crazy damage aside, is The Thing worth a rank up as a solo champ?

I was looking for a new champ that I could also use in AQ or War but all these synergies required, makes me think he can only be unleashed in questing - let me know your thoughts.

    Yes, he’s good without synergy, his damage isn’t anything crazy but he’s extremely tanky with his sig and is possibly the safest character in the whole game, he also has amazing immunities

    He's very solid. Effective against Unstoppable champs; easy to use. Being immune to shock and Nullify are really rare abilities.

    Take a look at the Carnage boss in EQ - Thing can handle him better than anyone, since anyone triggering Biohazard who is immune to bleed gets affected by Carnage's 'Ravager' ability to inflict armour break; and is then at the mercy of Carnage's Unblockable Specials. Thing doesn't even break a sweat.

    Similarly, he can ignore the abilities of a lot of opponents like Dr Doom, Man-Thing, Dr Voodoo, Vision Aarkus; or anyone on an EMP modification node.

    He doesn't really need any synergies at all; although he does have some good ones. Don't forget the Korg synergy!

    He does not need them! Rank him up and go smash some foes, you won’t regret it. Build up those furies and hit them with his sp2 (or sp3). 🤘🏼
  • Thanks guys! You convinced me - let's try the dude :D
