Immortal Abomination synergy with Red Skull

Will the synergy giving Red Skull 5% attack per armour up and 1 personal armour up every 10 hits, make you want to use Red Skull?

    I'm honestly not sure. Does he have an armor-up buff limit?

    He can have a max of ten

    Depends on how much of an overall increase we will see in damage.

    Even playing him perfectly a 50% damage increase takes his SP2 damage at 6* R1 from what 2k to 3k?

    No. It doesn’t do anything to fix Red Skull’s main issue and that’s that you can’t parry with him without loosing out on your source of damage. If they made it so he gains an armor up every five hits instead, then yes, I would use him more but probably still won’t rank him. I don’t like having to use synergies to make a champ useable.
    You're an Ant Man advocate on the forums tho -- and he needs 2 synergies to get him going
    Fair. However, with Ant-Man's synergies, he can gain well over 200% of his base attack with a stupid amount of ease, with Red Skull's synergy with Immortal Abom, he can barely get a 50% increase that will be really hard to keep up.

    It's nowhere near enough. Dude needs an overhaul. He was my first 6* and I tried to like him, I wanted to love him but he's just so ...meh. He needs a lot more to move from meh to decent.

    Imagine if they overhaul him and he becomes the new colussus, then immortal Abom is the new Omega ( his synergies giving extra attack per armor up, dot fields, etc)
  • I mean...it’ll help😂 I actually like using him here and there but I do agree his armor ups are too easy to lose.

    I guess it's not just me who thinks this won't do much for him then.
    Hopefully, he's still on the rework list somewhere. I get the feeling that some of the less used champs getting synergy buffs will slip down the list

    Symbiote Spidey
    Cable - admittedly great with Apocalypse but, meh without.
    Red Skull
    Psylocke - still lacking in damage
