Who? Who else but Immortal Abomination. With the release of the new featured, many people are pulling IBomb only to leave him on the bench! Absurd! Perhaps him being released alongside Mortal Hulk may have influenced their thoughts on the guy and immediately ruling him out. But unlike Mortal Hulk who deals a lot of damage (to himself), IBomb is actually really good and is definitely a top science champion. With the help of @Monke , I've put together a few things he's really good out to enlighten those leaving him on the bench.

For starters, IBomb is extremely sustainable and tanky. He inflicts poisons to himself, which he is immune to, granting him constant regeneration with the Will Power mastery. Each poison also grants him additional physical resistance. While he has a poison on himself, he will also place a weakness debuffs on the opponent, reducing their attack by 30% for 2 seconds. These weaknesses stack, allowing him to block tricky specials like Punisher, War Machine etc and take little to no damage. All this on top of his large health pool

Now onto his damage, and boy does he have damage! After applying ten poisons to the opponent, they will convert into an Acid Burn passive dealing direct damage. While Acid Burn is active, all of iBombs attacks are unblockable and deal physical damage. This gives him better openings to attack and compliment his aggressive play style. As his main source of damage is through Dot effects, it makes him a great option for nodes such as Safeguard, Rage etc and bypasses physical and energy resistance. For longer matches, Acid Burn can tick for ridiculous amounts. His ramp up is certainly worth the squeeze. You just watch the health melt away, even in shorter to midrange matches.

His easy access to debuffs make him viable for Diss Track and really shines on Poison Vulnerability paths. He is broken on the cavalier science node. Those hefty amount of poisons he's able to inflict reduce healing, further enhanced by the Despair mastery and his Petrify that can go as high as 80%!

Against poison immune match ups, he sucks. But with the current meta where you have your Things, Sasquatches, Magnetos, Sinisters, Victor Von Dooms, he absolutely destroys them. No surprise he's being used in high tier war to devastate these defenders. With synergies, he can get and armour break for those Emma Frosts and anywhere amour break is applicable.

I may have left some stuff out, so if you are experienced with iBomb, please share them below! I don't know how long this, but if you've made it this far you deserve a cookie. Once again thanks to @Monke for helping out.
And remember, don't sleep on Immortal Abomination, sleep on your beds instead.

    In short:

    Use iAbom, he is beast. And beautiful

    Well...yeah. Way to summarise my post in under ten words 😟

    Took mine to 5/65. Beast and fun to play. Watch BG's video on him that has Kabam Brocolli as a guest. He designed the abilities of Abom and other great champs and offers a lot of great insight into the champ, including how he was intended in part as a counter to Doom.

    Wait why is he slept on? He's only 2 months old and didn't have a hate train like Ihulk did. I thought many already knew he was special.

    He isn't hated. Just that many people don't consider him to be useful. There have been posts here moaning about pulling iBom from a featured and all.

    iHulk was wrongly hated. He isn't terrible

    Well some of the people that have him already know he dominates, but the others that don't believe he's a bottom tier champ. Some say worse than Ihulk :(
    iAbom is top tier, and your second sentence is also correct

    I've seen a lot of hate for him. And some think he is just mediocre. It's been 2 months but some of the hate for iHulk spilled over to IBomb.

    I got a 6* and thought he was useless for about 5 min until I tested him. But yea, others in my ally with a 6* have put him on the bench cuz they dont find his "hype" Wish he was in the featured 6* so I could dupe him

    Yes some do say he is worse than Immortal Hulk

    But is he worse than Immortal Hulk? I think it's obvious the answer is Absolutely
    I completely agree

    Ugh you all are making me want to r5 him now and ignore the levelup event.

    What's one revive and 25 units compared to iAbom with the maxed out icon?

    Do. It.

    I forgot to mention he is pretty suicide friendly with his constant healing and immunity to poison.

    He's no insane damage dealer like Human torch in his matchups or nick with max deep wounds, but He no doubt packs a punch with high results. It's the fact he's almost unkillable with a lot of utility with him that makes him very special. Stuff like AW/AQ is why Versatile and reliable champs are always preferred
    Yea but I like him so much cuz he is great for lower healthpools like AW, and can take a huge beating/high block damage and still survive. He is a very well balanced champ
