Who are the best power control champs? It's really annoying when the AI just saves up for sp3 so...

    For me:
    1) Doom
    2) Vision OG - duped
    3) Warlock

    Others: Magik, Hulkbuster,

    Yall gotta give reasons for why, don't just say. I'm gonna be objective as to who I pick not who I like.

    1. Doc Ock (awakened is better)
    2. Dormammu.
    3. Vision OG (awakened)

    Reason being, all 3 can start off any fight with power control.

    Dorm can do a double Medium and have instant drain with which you can do straight to his sp2 then you can lock them down all match. It's better than Magik since leading up to her SP2 she can't do anything at all power control wise. He's also better than Doom since you need to at least be at a Sp1 with Doom.

    Doc is the only champ in game where you can start a fight, do nothing at all but dash back and if they have power gain passively (Havok, Hype, nodes, etc) he will apply a power lock preventing them from getting a bar of power. If the enemy is Hyperion with 100000% enhanced ability power gain, Doc can either prevent him from seeing a single bar of power all fight of lock him down after he uses a single sp1. Warlock is ok but he can't shut down alot of fights with massive power gain like Doc since Warlock only has power drain and not lock, it could allow some champs or nodes to bypass it.

    OG Vision, pretty simple since he just starts with bars of power to instantly power drain then gains power throughout the fight to continue to do so. He is 3rd for me because all he does is drain and not lock which CAN get by him in some cases where as Dorm can drain on his mediums and Doc can lock AND steal power.

    S2099 is great but not as great as Doc and Dorm since he can't really do much vs power gain RATE (from getting hit) so nodes like Aspect of Evo MIGHT be alittle much for him. Same goes for other champs who only reverse power but not lock it or reduce combat power rate like Mr. Neg, Anti Venom, Void, Capiw, She Hulk, etc. Sometimes you want more than reverse power gain.

    Hulkbuster is ok but if you miss the block break on SP2 then there is no drain and if you're using his sp3 for power control then the fight itself isn't that serious or you'll take alot of damage before you use that sp3. It's like using S2099 to counter Evade/Unstoppable. Yeah he can do it but waiting till a SP3 in a hard fight only make it harder.

    Someone might float Psylocke but any enemy with passive power gain messes up her 0 bar lock down and her sp1 only draining 25% means if say a Hyperion gets to 3 bars, you use a sp1, he doesn't cross that bar of power, unless your Psylocke is close to another sp1 then it might be game over if he doesn't throw his sp2 since she has that stupid -25% power gain rate on attacks.
