    Different strengths based on different scenarios. Iceman is generally better all around but AA can deal massive damage and can be better in some scenarios.

    Iceman if you run suicides, AA if you go against champs that trigger annoying abilities. Don't forget, AA can stop evade too, not right away like Iceman can but still..

    I use iceman in AW attack and he’s great! Gets rid of spidey and NC evade right at the start of the fight if he’s duped. He can take a lot of punishment if you make a mistake with his ice armor. AA is definitely better for burst damage but Iceman does have his frostbite charges that can amplify his damage.

    AA can deal insane damage on attack, but is a bit of a glass cannon that relies on bleed. One fight against immunity will show how weak he can be and how quickly he can die.

    Based on my limited use of Iceman in 3* arena, I prefer Ice over AA. But since I only have AA as a 4*, he got pushed to R5.

    Iceman. Triple immunity. No evade abilities at start of fight. Great damage. Armor.
  • Please tell me
    I didn’t vote because both the answers are please tell me. I vote Archangel because of bleed and other damages like that. I have 4 star and he’s super annoying to fight.

    I agree but mostly those kind of champs are techs and usually we don’t use a mutant against a tech unless we have to
  • Please tell me
    I try not to anyway
  • Both are great but Ice is priority one.

    Also have to include poison immunity because you need to inflict both in order to get neurotoxin and generate the serious damage. Bleed itself really isn't that great (maybe 65-70 health per tick), but it's needed to proc poison and ultimately neuro.

    Means champs like Luke Cage, all versions of Hulk, most Cosmics, Colossus & Unstop. Colossus, Dorm, Iceman, Mephisto. And also champs that can shake debuffs quickly (Beast, OML, AV, Xbones, Kingpin). Plus whatever immunity nodes you face in AQ/AW/quests.

    As someone who uses AA fairly regularly (in a very bleed-dependent team), I run into immunity more times than I thought I would.

    Add to that list Rogue (for some reason she is often forgotten when it comes to debuff reductions) and Ant-Man (glancing makes it hard to stack debuffs).

    And then there's Cable and his funky reactions to poison and bleed. He's not immune to either, but each poison stack reduces the duration of poison stacks right up to zero, and every time you place a bleed on him he places a degen on you.

    And of course you can't go ham on BPCW because of the neurotoxin stuns, so that can limit your damage against him by a bit.
