I used Psylocke, she completed mutant and control counter objectives so a two for one for TBs.

I’m uploading it to YouTube now, but will take a while for it to be live since it’s 8 mins long and my wifi hates me.






Other options I’d considered were BWCV, Havok maybe?

    symbiote supreme works, but you have to not to intercept him when you are in the phase with the fury buff

    The main thing here is that if you never parry or apply incinerate/shock he will never go unstoppable. Willpower helps Psylocke a ton with his detonations (less so with other champs if he's constantly using specials with the heal block).

    Ronan could probably stun lock, but he doesn't fulfil objectives.

    An alliance mate used Prof X, he said bait heavy, stand up intercept, throw heavies after he uses an Sp1, spam SP2s. A mutant power booster could probably come in handy here.

    Can confirm that Roman can stun lock, but it’s very weird against the wall. Ronan hits air and Ikaris never gets knocked down visually, although the protection shield goes down. Also, it is a very long process.

    Can someone explain why Rogue doesn't steal the energize buffs?

    Prof x gets easy solo, just spam sp1 and refresh your prowess.

    I solo’d with prof x. General strategy as follows:

    - DON’T hit him with your light attack.
    - Use mediums only to hit into block and create space
    - Utilise your falter into heavy, and heavy counter his sp1
    - Go for one full SP3 cycle to build up your prowess
    - Afterwards use only sp1’s and keep refreshing your prowess stack
    - Keep pushing him to sp1 and counter with heavy to knock him down
    - Mutant power boost is really useful.

    what did you do about the power detonation if you used sp3?

    I can’t even get to an sp3 with profX because he is KO’d before then by power detonate and him throwing specials 🧐
    I haven’t tried with prof, so I may just be completely wrong. But if you only heavy counter until sp3, wouldn’t that not give him any energise, and also not give you any power detonation?

    Maybe the block damage is too much, could be worth trying

    I think I’m going to need someone to hold my hand and tell me how to fight this guy. I can barely deal with my starved 3* version.

    Against non mystics he does damage if you reduce his power when he’s above 7 energise (I think this counts for him using a special as well) so you need to either stop him using specials, or take his energise buffs away
    i was wondering why i was taking 5k damage whenever he used a special.... smh.

    i got an easy solo with Claire, it took forever but she got it done.

    i guess i need to figure out how to do with r2 ProfX using only mediums and Heavies.

    You can only hit him with prof X heavy attack. Using mediums will place the detonate’s on you. Only use mediums into his block to create space.

    Upon reflection you probably don’t need to go to a special 3 - just get through one special cycle so you can build up a bunch of prowess. After that you can use your mediums and keep spamming sp1’s to avoid the detonation damage.

    I only went to a sp3 because I was running a 200% power boost and I was testing to see if I could sp3 spam

    For those who aren't skilled like me: I managed to do it with BWCV with 7 L1 revives plus health potions.

    She's not the best for power control (as it is difficult to reach SP2 due to the Power Detonation debuff), nor for controlling the Energize buff (as you need to reach SP2 as well). You can't really use the Incinerate mode, as unlike most BWCV matchups, the immunities can't really be taken advantage of.

    Getting the knockdown to remove protection isn't too bad - easy to bait Ikaris heavy and then heavy counter, or heavy counter after dashing back twice from Ikaris SP1.

    In general, one could theoretically heavy counter the entire fight - avoids Power Detonation and Energize.
    I will have to plan out which Mutant champion I want to use for my next run. Don't have a Prof X, and Apocalypse would only have 1 Prowess charge.

    Do NOT use Punisher 2099. After 5-6 heavies, he throws sp3 even in the middle of your heavy.

    I’m pretty sure no one was going to.
    It was a cheese option like Ronan if AI was acting normal.

    sounds like you're trying to stun lock, that only works when you have a battery charge, if the opponents have buffs P99 gains battery charges at a slower so you would only be able to land a few heavies before you run out.


    very bad option.

    Thanks bittersteel.

    Just been playing with Yellowjacket and baiting sp1. Thought it’d be a solo, but every time he launched his sp1 yj lost 5% health. Any ideas why?

    If he’s on 7 or more energise buffs every time he loses power he does damage to non mystics. Unfortunately losing power counts as throwing a special..

    Per Ikaris kit, whenever he has 7+ energize buffs, when his power is reduced(includes using a special) inflict a burst of energy damage per energize buff.

    the Ikaris in quest does 508 energy damage per energize buff... smh.
