4 Star Awakening Gem Use - Killmonger?

Can someone please explain simply what Killmonger's benefits are besides simply saying true strike and reverberation? How does it actually work and how does it activate? (Not watching a 20 minute Seatin vid)
Got him then as a 4 Star and wondering whether he's worth the gem and the R5.

    If u don't consider his synergies here is how he works
    True strike- he gets it when u successfully counter ur opponent while he is recovering from a special attack...u will need practice for this to time ur counters perfectly so that u gain true strike more often than not
    Sp1- gives him charges which make him unstoppable when ur opponent hits into his block
    Sp2- gives him 3 indestructible charges which are consumed everytime he is hit which also includes block hits
    Sp3- massive bleed which can be used once and can inflict a max of 50 bleed stacks for each bleed inflicted on opponent during the fight

    Reverberation does damage back to the opponent when killmonger is hit by the opponent..and it activates every few seconds. his awakened ability is more focussed towards defense so if u are planning to attack with him,i.would save the gem for someone else

    I got him from arena in the first round and used a generic AG on him. He gets me a few kills on AWD.

    But main purpose I got him was for his True Strike to counter Medusa.

    Well his awakened ability can give him a good amount of damage

    It seems like everyone here has a good grasp of KM but they didn't mention his attack increase from being awakened. He gets a modest attack bonus when he has reverberation and true strike active at the same time.

    It's for offensive purposes - apologies I should've specified.
    I see what you mean about the dupe but I got 2 Skill gems, still waiting on Blade and Gwenpool but I've been waiting for 3 years haha sounds like a worthy upgrade then.
    Thanks!

    If you have two skill gems I would drop one on KM and rank him up. Imo he's the best skill champ in the game, not counting Blade with synergies just by themselves. He's a blast to play with and a great defender as well, something the other two aren't. Also with his sig if you activate true strike while reverb is active you gain a decent attack boost.

    No once max sig gives him a 100% damage boost

    Awaken him or Black Widow?

    Or wait for GP, Blade?

    He can make a deadly defender when duped his awakened ability is one of the best imo
