Recommended Masteries

  • Extended/Enhanced Fury
    • Kingpin’s Overpower Buff counts as a Fury and as such, it benefits from these Masteries. It’s also rather a large bonus so there are benefits of improving it.
  • Willpower
    • Kingpin has the ability to convert Debuffs into Rage. Willpower allows him to benefit from those that he doesn’t convert, as well as giving him a way to recover some health to offset any damage he takes while being Unstoppable.
  • Liquid Courage/Double Edge
    • Again coming back to Kingpin’s ability to convert Debuffs to Rage, while not the guarantee of an immunity, he has a 50% chance to gain all the benefits with none of the penalties.

Strong Match-Ups

  • Electro
    • Kingpin makes a good answer to Electro. His large health pool allows him to soak up some of that Static Shock Damage without too much worry. Then his Special 1 includes a projectile attack allowing him to avoid some of the damage all together, and the Ability Accuracy reduction from that same Special 1 allows him to avoid even more. Finally, sprinkle a little class advantage on top and away you go.
  • Spider-Man (Stark Enhanced)
    • Starker-man’s AI assisted Evade is serious business. It’s usually somewhere between difficult and suicidal to throw a Heavy Attack at him, making it tough to turn it off if you’re not a Cosmic Champion. Kingpin’s Unstoppable Heavy Attack let’s him turn off that AI in relative safety, unlocking his Special 1 to get the Ability Accuracy Reduction into the fight to keep him down!

Weak Match-Ups

  • Angela
    • Angela has no Debuffs to place on Kingpin, taking his Rage also completely out of the picture.  Also as a Skill Champion with only his Black ISO Ability Accuracy reduction to combat her Buff stacking, Kingpin will find himself facing an uphill battle..
  • Doctor Strange
    • With Counterspell and Nullify to remove Unstoppable and Fury, Mystic Dispersion to benefit from those removals, and Energy Damage basic attacks to counter Kingpin’s Physical Resistance, Doctor Strange is a tough matchup.
  • Rogue
    • Rogue’s Powersteal and Lifesteal abilities are unaffected by Kingpin’s Rage, and she can steal a Fury of her own from Overpower. Her ability to reduce Debuff durations lowers the effect of Black ISO-8, and she has Class Advantage to make sure she hurts even more than usual.
