Unexpected favorites

What are some of your champs in your roster that were totally not on your radar or you were uninterested in, but you’ve since changed your mind and actually enjoy using?

For me it would be Red Guardian and Man Thing. I totally didn’t even think either were interesting in their respective eq’s, they just seemed pretty meh at the time. In fact, I only expected to rank man thing for defense. Man was that crazy... he’s helped me clear so much, not to mention is an incursions monster too. Learning rg has been huge for me especially with working on spite paths, so much fun. Plus he’s not my usual style of champ, so it’s a refreshing change for me.
Who have been some surprise gems in your rosters?

    I have a few....

    Apoc - I honestly thought I would mostly use him for the horsemen synergy, but I almost never activate it because he is so dang good on his own. He is pretty much a lane clearer for me.
    Guardian - I took him to r5 back in December and he is probably my most used champ (at least top 3). I knew he was good, but not THIS good.
    Red Hulk - I've had him at r4 for months, and I originally used him pretty much as a mystic counter only, but he is so valuable overall.
    Silver Surfer - I am using him more and more and his is criminally underrated by the community.

    Now on the flip side....

    Nick Fury - I got him from a Nexus and used a gem on him and took him to r4 immediately. I don't really use him that much. I know he has a certain playstyle/rotation that I just am not interested in learning I guess.... who knows. I am by no means saying his is overrated, I jsut don't really find a spot for him other than AW to be honest.

    They didn't impress me that much at first but they have all grown on me heavily.

    Sp1 spam. Only do sp2/3 if your pushed to those bars.
    He's very backdraft intercept friendly since you can very likely (without outside powergain influence) keep them in the corner constantly bleeding and near 0 power.

    Very poggers champ, but many see him as 9th best mystic when he is arguably top 6
    Isn't he also the only Mystic Robot? He has immunities alot of the other mystics don't.

    This guy.



    People don't talk about him much, and no one ever really seems happy when they pull him. I gave him a chance though, and no regrets. Super good on buffed up, diss track, mesmerize, evade champs, robots, armor up champs/nodes, etc. And he hits hard if you learn his rotation.

    Old Man Logan for me.

    My second 6* awakening and took him to r2. Since his rework a while back I played him more and more and really enjoy doing so. Constant regen, unblockable specials, tons of fury stacks, and a fantastic SP2 bleed. Tons of fun and very often a regular part of the team tackling a variety of content.

    I have a 5* Aarkus and enjoy him quite a bit. Just wish he didn't lag my device all the time.

    Haha yeah, he's got a lot going on. Might need to upgrade my phone to keep him in service. Starting to see some lag here and there as well. Could just be the state of the servers though..

    Dragon Man. Top 6 mystic for me.

    Good utility, pretty damn high damage when you corner an opponent after a sp3, plus you get 2 high-damage dealing sp2's before needing to sp3 again, along with crazy power gain. Plus, he's just loads of fun imo, with all the unblockable and unstoppable hits. Only downside is those that power control or armour break, but other than that, he is very good and supplies a decent immunity.

    For me it will be Falcon for sure
    Currently my main candidate for Rank 3 six star

    Killmonger and red hulk are two that spring to mind. Killmonger wasn't on my radar until I pulled him as a 5 star. Then I had some skill catalysts expiring so decided to rank him up and use him for a bit and then realised he's actually really good.
    Same with Red Hulk, only had a 3 star for a long time and so only played with him very rarely in arenas. Then pulled a 6 star, and tbh was a little disappointed at the time but did some quests with him and discovered he's a weapon and tears through mystics with ease.
