Ironman (IW)

He's too hard to beat especially when you don't have corvus and other counters any tips on it?

    My absolute favorite IMIW counter is Void. I have a strong Corvus and I still choose Void for these fights. It's especially nice when you can use an Avengers synergy to start the fight with Fear of the Void active.

    I also wrote out a brief strategy on how to attack IMIW in general here:

    His block proficiency lets you tank a lot of hits through your block. IMIW's heavy can be countered by your heavy which gives cap a huge damage buff.

    Typically it just takes 1 L2 at 5 kinetic charges with a fury and he's dead.

    +1 on baiting heavy, dex then heavy when he slides into you. multi-hit counters like hyperion work great. Same concept applies to intercepting with specials e.g Hype SP1 spam.
  • I was testing Venom, and his heavy against IMIW has true strike, so it's a plus damage. Also under 18% Venom trigger true strike permanent so autoblock should not affect you

    Ironman infinity war is one of the easiest fights in the new challenge. Black Widow and rogue are infinitely harder. Rogue especially

    I know the the heavy counter method but it's just too much damage even while blocking

    If this is really your problem, you could focus on block proficiency champs like any Captain America or Daredevil...even Carnage.

    Or you could use Regen champs like X-23, King Groot or Rogue.

    If you can do the heavy counter well, IMIW can be taken down by literally any champ. Feel free to get creative and dig deep in your roster.
