Combined with AI not throwing specials this isn’t a fun time.

Would be good to see some unique counters too

    Mystic nullifiers, staggerers and neutralizers.

    Not sure if this is BGs, but there’s Tigra, Doom, Wiccan, OGSW, Rintrah, Hood. Just to name a few.

    Non mystic options are, void, titania, mr fantastic and scorpion.
    Titania is excellent counter with staggers and haymaker to take sp3.

    Ham. Even if Hyperion doesn't throw his specials, he can tank sp3's if you have nonsense up. Usually the taunts can get the specials out, but the damage reduction is helpful when they don't,

    How ham can tank sp3s? Am I missing something from his kit?

    Torch and his power stings is solid, especially if you can block Hype's sp1.

    Taunt reduces attack and if you pair him with the inequity mastery it reduces the damage

    Dr. Doom.
    Just keep using sp1 to steal his power

    It'll be interesting to see what they do for Luke Cage, who's actually a semi-effective Hyperion counter. Play aggressive, and he can (RNG-permitting) use Exhaustion to shut down or reverse Power Gain; and if an SP3 slips through, just take it on the chin.

    Rintrah, Juggs and Sorcerer Supreme are alos viable options. Its pretty much 90% of mystic champs

    White Tiger now that she's in the game. She has power control and nullify. This is my R1, 5*, 1 sig. She wrecked him lol.

    Also Colossus is great since he's incinerate immune, armor break immune, and can tank Hyp's Sp 3's. Yes that's plural. My R5, 6*, max sig Colossus tanked 7 of them and still won.

    Luke Cage and Doc Ock are some of the more unique ones :smile:

    Luke Cage - can tank SP3s + his exhaustion debuffs can mitigate Hype's powergain

    Doc Ock - he can keep Hyperion powerlocked very easily, despite his class disadvantage. Just spam SP1s and Hype is easy to deal with
