Worst matchups in the game

JohnHSJohnHS Posts: 485 ★★★
What examples of the worst matchups in the game can you think of? Probably the #1 for me is duped Elektra vs Ebony Maw, as her guaranteed crits are guaranteed to miss, meaning she can deal no damage and is incapable of dealing damage (unless she gets hit enough to get to her SP3). Others include Quake vs a true strike node (can't evade, thus meaning you'll die if you charge heavies), Ghost vs Mr Sinister (heals from all the crits and blocks her unblockable special attacks), and Archangel vs Korg.
What other good examples are there?

    It's been a while since I've faced this match up, but I seem to recall Dormammu verses high sig Ultron being a less than fun time.

    Also Strange, Sym Supreme, Dormammu, Maw, and any other energy damage champs vs Havok. Mephisto, Magik, Ghost Rider, etc. vs Blade also are unpleasant fights.

    Bishop vs Ultron

    Havok slowly gains energy for sp3 and if you time an attack when DD misses, or when you parry DD attack, Havok can do major damage aside from mutant over skill.

    Yondu vs DD
    AA vs any bleed immune
    Any bleed champ vs Cable

    Dormammu vs sentinal with hood Synergy

    Every power drain is seen by sentinal as a powerlock increasing his power immensely

    Not a bad matchup just funny

    Also NC, Thing, or Juggs vs themselves

    To be honest that ain’t a bad matchup ... have taken wolverine down in the past with her just need to time those sp3’s

    Not going to argue it .. however, just pointing out .. without extra nodes (ie extra healing), Ghost CAN defeat Sinister:

    couple notes to keep in mind:

    1) Ghost doesn't have to phase before hitting ... meaning she'll strike normally ..
    2) even if he heals from the crit, he only heals 70% .. so you can still do "normal ghost" tactics .. it's just as if he has a LOT more HP .. which, for most Ghost players, isn't a real problem .. ;)

    I've actually taken Ghost vs Sinister and defeated him easily ... just don't get flustered from the healing and you'll slowly work him down.

    Optimal: Hell no ... but at least it's not as bad as your Elektra vs Maw matchup .. LOL

    Stark enhanced Spider Man vs. Annihilus

    It took me a while to figure out his taunt triggers him being unstoppable and unblockable

    My wallet vs July 4th and Cyber Monday deals...

    Stark Spidey vs Annihilus. Land 5 hits and behold as he becomes unstoppable and unblockable until the Taunt wears off. Rinse and repeat. Ghost vs Ant-Man sucks too.

    Blade vs Cable has messed me up a few times.
    Can’t block and can’t use specials.

    Hulkbuster vs Hulk

    Seriously .. he's "supposed" to be a counter to Hulk .. his passive says so ... and yet ... he really, REALLY can't hold his own against Hulk ... let alone anyone else in the game .. *sigh*

    Fun fact: The Hulkbuster armour had never once defeated the Hulk in the comics before Avengers: Age of Ultron hit theatres.
