Omega Red - Shouldn't he be the best counter for himself?

If Omega Red faces Omega Red, why would he suffer damage due to death spores? He emits them himself, so he's obviously in the path of them. He should be immune, correct?

All thoughts welcome...

    Omega red and human torch makes sense, but not arch and iceman

    To above all, cyclops doesnt take havok’s unique damage due to his brotherly genetic mutation which renders them similar.

    To the OP, You are somewhat right in your way. Death field is his unique ability and he should be immune to it. But if that happens, neither will be able to deal damage to the opposite Omega as he would be immune too. Similary, Quake would be aftershock immune, warlock virus immune, domino never unlucky, etc etc. This would make the character code development overly complicated for kabam as well as bugs would be more than ever. Fights would be uninteresting and hit based which would suck. Plus, nobody would have to eorry about any fights as no one would take any damage from the same opponent’s unique abilities which would safeguard them from losing the fight easily.

    Cyclops was an exceptional case as he’s not that useful everywhere but this one ability makes him extremely useful against havok. Same way, Omega takes damage but deals damage too because its supposed to be a fun match not a parry comco parry combo borefest.

    Having unique abilities doesn't necessarily make you immune to them. There's no reason Quake should be immune to Aftershock. Although you could argue that anyone #Flying should be. Domino shouldn't be immune to Unlucky; but her own AAR makes it less likely. Archangel shouldn't be immune to bleed, poison or neurotoxin - many animals aren't immune to their own venom.

    For Omega, you could argue that - rather than being immune to them - Omega should permanently count as though he had ten spores against another Omega. He might be immune to the Degeneration, though...

    You're right that it would probably make the game too complicated, though 😏
