Thoughts on Human Torch

Hello, I opened a 5star Human torch yesterday and have him at rank 2 at the moment.
İ see he is pretty good against mystics but how do you guys think he is against non mystics?
İ cant really tell as I dont really know how to use him and he is only at rank 2.
Thank you

    What about heavy attacks?

    Pretty awesome for mystics, regeneration matchups, champs with energy attacks, miss counter.
    You won't be using him in normal matchups but his damage there too is alright and with the prefight he can even burn through normal matchups.

    İ think just being great against mystics is enough for me to rank him

    Increase temperature to make fire last longer

    You have to MLM combos interspersed with heavies to reach 20 temperature

    With his Pre-Fight Nova Flame he can beat almost anything easily. Korg, Thing, whatever ... just Torch it.

    Without, he‘s still MVP against Mystics, energy based Champs, Miss Champs (Ebony/Professor X/Guillo 2099/...) and everyone who burns.

    His 20% heal reduction with each incinerate is an underrated ability, it greatly helped in act 6 even vs enemies who don’t give him smolders

    Great for mystics, energy based attacks, and pretty good miss and regen counter. His prefight is super handy just to get some good damage in on a boss or hard fight

    Yep all constructive comments above are right.
    I'm busy with a list on which attacks Torch can get Smoulders and +5 Temp.

    (Work in progress, I'm sure a lot of you higher end players have way more experience finding right match-ups.)

    Yeah indeed. I was a little too late to edit it but I'm not going to spam so here's the last one for now.




    (When I'm all done with the list of specials of all champs I'll work further on this one in my own thread, seems like it can be very useful too. I admit not to use Torch very often but he is amazing.)
