Just looking for champs I should be aware of, so that when I eventually get them I'm not ignorant to the gem I've just acquired so they don't end up being neglected. Reasons why would be appreciated also please.

    How about some from each class?

    Mutant - Wolverine (bleed, regen), X23 (same), ArchAngel (high damage), Iceman (damage, defense)
    Skill - Gwenpool (high damage, power control, bleed), Elektra (bleed, damage, defensive ability reduction)
    Science - Hulk (damage, poison immunity), WW2 Cap (Blocking ability, bleed), Quake (defensive ability reducer, damage, great for mystic champ control)
    Mystic - GR (regen, bleed, fury, fate seal), Voodoo (regen, poison, power control), Magik (power control, defense)
    Cosmic - Hyperion (damage, poison immunity), Thor (damage), Phoenix (damage, regen), Angela (damage), Drax (damage, bleed)
    Tech - Starlord (damage), Vision (power control, heal block), Stark Spider-Man (damage, power control), Yondu (damage, bleed, heal block, defense), Howard the Duck (damage, defense, regen),

    There are some others who get a good nod, and a lot of champs really depend on who you like, and how you play. For instance, I really like Gambit, but I know he isn't loved by a lot of people. And I probably missed some. If you have questions about specific champs, I can expand a bit, but since your question was broad, I did this.

  • Thanks for the detailed list, it's appreciated

    I would add:
    Mystic - Scarlet Witch: Everything. Just everything. Certainly less reliable regen trigger but arguably one of the best regens in the game. A lot of health and fast. Plus sp1 and 2 are large dmg dealers. Power control. Ability balancing etc.

    Tech - Ultron: Very reliable healer, bleed and cauterize (turns bleeds into instant dmg), bleed and poison immune, Stuns. If dupped he converts % of energy attacks against him into health and power.

    Doc oc - reliable ability triggers and good dmg

    Mystic - Ghost Rider - great regen with reliable trigger. Power control. Controllable utilities.

    @SMiller80 Phoenix should really not be in that list. She's very weak probably not even in the top 50% of all champs, she's a budget Hyperion.

    Howard the Duck is also worthless

    Not if you play them right.

    Let me clarify my last statement. Sounds arrogant. Not meant to sound that way. That's what happens wen I am on my phone. Answers tend to be shorter.

    I believe most champs are what you make of them. There are some great champs who require no special effort. Wolverine, for instance, is god-tier out of the box. You don't really need to know anything, except that his power bar determines how much he regens per tick.

    But most of the best champs aren't like that. Take Hyperion. He is a god-tier champ, and clearly one of the best in the game. But if you don't know you should parry/heavy, you will find him weak. Phoenix is like that as well, but even more complicated. You need to know how her regen works, time her furies, and it's going to take more of an effort to get all you can. But if you do, she's awesome. Not in the same tier as Hyperion, but is in the top of the cosmic class, imo.

    And Howard is also not worthless. Use his sp2, and watch him roll over opponents. I like to take him on quests. Plus, he's fun. Too little credit given to fun champs.

    Literally just got Howard and his SP2 is amazing... Love using him, great champ.
