Is there a bug with Dr Doom vs. Electro?

Doctor Doom's armor makes him "immune to shock effects".

Electro's passive says when opponent make's contact, deals NN% static shock damage (energy damage).

Shouldn't Doctor Doom be immune to this (assuming no other effects would further complicate the interaction)? That doesn't seem to be the case in any game mode.

    Electro's passive is not shock damage ...

    Static shock is just the ability name. Electro deals energy damage and no one is immune to that
  • And doesn’t wording of “immune to xxxxx EFFECTS” mean it would have to be from a DEBUFF (either active or passive), which Electro damage is not an “effect”.

    No, HT is still immune to mephesto's aura because he is immune to incinerate.

    But HT case says immune to (ALL) incinerate.
    Whereas Doom says just from “Effects”, so if the Shock damage is not from a shock Debuff or shock Passive then Doom would still suffer damage from it. (Yes, Electro is not actually Shock, just pointing out the other reason why even if it were Shock damage)

    How come he's immune to the damage from the EMP node then?
    its a passive effect
    I mean that's what this person is gonna answer you based on the logic he says
    I kind of see the logic true I guess since thats how kabam has gone with it

    but tbh i think he should be immune to it cuz shock and all but whatever

    Take Guardian or Darkhawk against Doom. When you are fully immune, you are fully immune and Doom is fully immune to shock damage of any kind.
  • Guess that's what I was initially trying to see from others (wording of Effect).

    Not familiar with what the EMP node does, does it show up as an icon under Doom or an instantaneous damage ? (although lack of an icon is not always definitive, as Kabam has some cases where they fail to show a Passive Icon) Or maybe their wording is misleadingly using Effect as to summarize the 3 different things Doom is immune to, as opposed to conditioning each of them to being from an actual Effect.
  • Shock effects include Shock damage in general. Either via a debuff or via a passive shock
