How To Beat “Captain Marvel’s Challenge” as Easily as Possible.

I recently beat the Capt Marvel Challenge. It was difficult, because I had no Corvus, Ghost, Domino, Quake or any superstars like that. However, I’m glad I didn't, because I learned a lot more without them. Here are some tips for each of the opponents I recommend.

Ms. Mᴀʀᴠᴇʟ
By far the easiest, so gonna skip this one. Any high DPS Champion should do great. I personally used Venom, & never died once.



Iʀᴏɴ Mᴀɴ: Iɴғɪɴɪᴛʏ Wᴀʀ
One of the harder opponents | Good options include...
  • Void: Who I personally used. Highly recommend using his “Avengers Synergy”, where he automatically gets FOTV at the start of the fight against Avengers (including IMIW).
  • Corvus: He has True Strike, very high DPS & a Class Advantage, what more can you want? Just remember he won’t have his True Strike active for the 1st 10 seconds.
  • Ghost: Ya, if you are a “Pro-Ghost player” you should have no trouble. Nuff said. I’d just obviously recommend bringing her “Wasp Synergy”
  • Venom: Could be a longer fight, but still a great option. Just spam the SP2, & once IMIW hits 18%, it’s game over.
  • Hyperion: Spam Heavies & dish out as much damage as possible.
  • Medusa: Get the Armor Shatter Up & she'll hit like a truck, or spam mediums to get his Armors down.
  • Heimdall: Would be a hell of a long fight (due to his low DPS), but he can still bypass the AutoBlock & he can parry his mediums.

    _ All in all, just remember to interrupt IMIW’s Heavies, even if he’s Unstoppable. And don’t be afraid of his AutoBlock, because he can’t parry Stun you anyways.



    Rᴏɢᴜᴇ
    Probably the hardest of all the opponents. You basically want a champ who can deal a lot of damage through blocks. I had no good option, & basically threw my whole team at her. Good options include...
    • Ghost: Oh yeah, you should have no trouble if you are a “Pro-Ghost player”. I’ve heard of her dealing 200K damage through Rogue’s block.
    • Hyperion: Same as with IMIW, spam Heavies & dish out as much damage as possible.
    • Corvus: Crits extremely hard, & the immunity allows you to continually parry Rogue & not die. I saw Seatin use a 4*, & it worked very well.
    • Masacre One underrated champ often not in the spotlight, Masacre already deals very high damage through blocks, especially on the SP2. With the “Invade” node, a blocked SP2 from Masacre should be extremely powerful.
    • Ægon: (fully ramped) What can I say? This dude is insane fully ramped. Doesn’t even require explaining.
    • Stark Enhanced Spider-Man: Build you’re poise as quickly as possible, & smack into her block. Best case scenario, you throw a massive SP2 with 10 poise into her block.
    • Domino: High DPS through the Block. I suggest gunning for the SP2, & it will probably hit very hard.
    • Red Hulk: With enough Heat Charges, Rulks Block damage is devastating. Highly recommend him being awakened with his “Masacre Synergy”.
    _ Just remember to dash in on her block as often as possible, & watch the Unstoppable. Duel Rogue & practice evading her in the corner. Only fire Specials into her block if possible.



    Bʟᴀᴄᴋ Wɪᴅᴏᴡ
    Really straight forward. Maybe just bring someone to counter her “3% Evade”. Besides that, she’s not difficult, & not worth talking about. I used Void.



    Kᴀᴍᴀʟᴀ Kʜᴀɴ
    RONAN! Ronan, Ronan, Ronan, Ronan, Ronan. Did I mention Ronan? Even a 3* works great, or a 2*! Just make sure he’s awakened. Gun for the SP1, spam the SP1 & it’s easy as f***.


    All in all, the superstars of this Challenge, I would say is...
    Ghost (preferably with the “Wasp Synergy”).
    Corvus.
    Domino.
    Void (awakened & preferably with the “Avengers Synergy”).
    Ægon (awakened & fully ramped).
    Medusa (awakened).
    Morning Star (Fully ramped)
    Stark Enhanced Spider-Man.
    Hyperion.
    Venom.
    Massacre.
    Ronan (awakened & for KK only).


    All in all, just practice against “Aspect of War” & see what you can do. This is a tough challenge, & don’t be mad if you can’t 100%. Good Luck :smile:

    Yondu is the best option for rogue, but overall a very useful guide!

    I’ve been debating whether I’ll attempt it or not. My team would probably be

    5/65 Stark
    5/65 GR
    4/55 AA
    5/50 Blade
    5/50 Ronan

    I’ve got 800 units and not much of a stash besides full pots from farming WS. Worth doing, or am I better off saving for act 6?

    @JChanceH9 I’d say test out the 1st lane, & see how you do. If think you can do it in the amount of units you have, I’d say go for it. It’s well worth it up to about 2,000 units in my opinion, the rewards are extremely valuable.

    I'd lose blade honestly I mean the poise is cool but blade isnt a valid team member in this imo and mine was r4 5 sig 200

    Hard for me to give up Blade more for GR’s reliable judgement procs than Stark’s poise charges. I appreciate the advice though. Plus I am going for Blade on the 22nd, so I may have a 4/55 Blade at that point.

    No surprise here, but Ghost. Every fight.

    I used about 14 individual revives to complete the second chapter, a handful of which were silly mistakes on my part. I also did have some great fights though which I wasn't expecting. My team was

    5/65 IW Cap sig 135
    4/55 Corvus unduped
    4/55 SL sig 75
    4/55 X-23 sig 20
    5/50 Heimdall sig 45 for synergy

    Corvus took care of IWIM and Rogue every path. With the Heimdall synergy I pulled off quite a few fights ending in single digit health that otherwise would've cost me big on the inventory. Corvus also handled half the BW, one of which I started at 1% health and somehow pulled it off.

    Cap took all the Ms Marvel fights, both versions with no deaths and Cap Marvel as well. Lost him twice finishing off Rogue fights where Corvus died. SL did the BW fights that Corvus didn't but it became more worth while to just revive Corvus for her instead.

    Overall wasn't too bad once I got into a rhythm. Almost all deaths came to Rogue, 2 to IWIM and 3 to BW but a lot of those were starting at low health. I did lose quite a bit of health to IWIM but usually pulled it out with Corvus sp2 when Heimdall synergy kicked in.

    Just another option on the table, I use Omega red and KM (for iwim only) for all the fights with ST, WS and cwbp for synergy. Revived omega 3-4 times with my saved pots no unit used.

    I should try it i have ghost n corvus

    I would say Symbiote Supreme is the best choice for Kamala Khan, I inflicted insane nullify damage about 30k after each SP3. :smile:

    That’s pretty debatable. Besides, the majority of people don’t have a high level Symbiot Supreme, but EVERYONE has at least a 2* Ronan... & more than likely a 3*.

    With Cap IW & Corvus, probably had a great time.

    My team:

    5* Sparky (5/65, sig 80).
    4* Thor (5/50, sig 99).
    4* Hyperion (5/50, sig 60).
    4* Ronan (5/50, sig 25).
    5* Heimdall (1/25).

    I used 1 team revive + 7 single 20% revives plus a few potions (less than 20 IIRC).

    The main attackers were Sparky (Ms Marvel, Rogue and BW plus the boss), Hyperion (IMIW) and Ronan (KK). the other two were for synergies only. Heimdall's synergy comes in handy a lot in this quest imo, first time that I looked up at using this synergy didn't think of it being useful at first.

    I used blade (Kamala and ms marvel)
    Stark for ironman and rogue
    Sabretooth for widow

    And brought void and hood just in case.

    It was hard, I wouldn’t say challenging cuz brawl with invade and aspect of war is a bad combo.

    I don’t mind hard content, we can’t just walk through everything but balance would be nice.

    If aspect of war is used, maybe get rid of brawl?

    All other nodes were fine, ironman wasn’t that bad, widow was just annoying with her evade, Kamala and marvel we’re fine.

    I used 5/65 void with omega and hawkeye synergy for mm, imiw, amd bw.
    6* yondu for rogue.
    5* r3 Ronan for kk
    Ran 30% champion, 25% health, and 20% attack boosts.
    Probably 20 lvl 2 single revives and never healed (way too expensive). Got sloppy towards the end.
    Total cost: my stash plus ~300 units.

    I’m by no means a great or end game player. So, I think the challenge was reasonable.

    No offense but those “tips” were useless, u just said some hero options to use, nothing more

    You obviously didn’t read my whole post. But I understand, because it is an extremely long one. Not everyone has the time of day...

    You throw heavies after special attacks dude. Seatin demonstrates this on his Live Stream very well. But aside from that, the feedback on this post was highly positive...

    If you are among the few who didn’t like it, I’m ok with that. But please go be trollish elsewhere, as there are many people in here trying hard to succeed in this tough challenge, & they don’t need you’re sour attitude.

    I personally found Void w/ the “Avengers Synergy” an MVP as well. Dude put in a lot of work for me getting FOTV at the start of fight against IMIW & Black Widow.
  • StarDarts_89StarDarts_89 Posts: 419 ★★
    Stark Spidey is pretty good for IMIW too. What I did was build 7+ poise charges then kept attacking into him at until he was at 20%-15% health then I used either a heavy or SP1. It usually knocked him out when it crits.

    Ya, great point. He’s one MVP against IMIW I missed.

    But... Wouldn't she be unstoppable after the special? I think overall your post was quite informative, but I also stumbled over this part.

    @UmbertoDelRio That is an excellent observation, but what is often overlooked against “Aspect of War”, is that you can dash in on Heavy Attacks & get intercepts in after Specials, which instantly removes the Unstoppable.

    It can be difficult, but definitely possible. I wouldn’t consider Hyperion the #1 option, but thought I might as well mention him, because I know a lot of people are very skilled at using him (Because Hyperion is Bad-a**). I would recommend watching out for the Brawl node though, as this is not removed on intercepts, & has the same icon as “Aspect of War’s” Unstoppable.

    "[...] if the player intercepts any dash or heavy attack."
    I still fail to see how launching a heavy right after one of her specials would be a wise idea.

    @UmbertoDelRio It is not, I would agree. She would have to be dashing in on you in order for you in intercept with a heavy in order to remove the Unstoppable. It is a risky move that I would not recommend to most players. But for those who are extremely skilled at intercepting with Hyperion, it is possible.

    But I do agree with you’re points... & I would recommend a different strategy to the majority of players.
