About Old Man Logan:

In an alternate timeline, the villains of Earth and beyond worked together to bring about the downfall of Super Heroes everywhere. Manipulated into hurting his fellow mutants, Wolverine took on a vow of pacifism, swearing to never again pop his claws. 50 years later, when an old friend knocked on his door asking for help on a mission to overthrow the ruling villains, Logan chose to once again do what he did best.

Recommended Masteries

  • Recovery
    • Logan has a consistent Regeneration Buff and this will help keep his health high throughout the fight.
  • Double Edge
    • Old Man Logan has two advantages from Double Edge, in addition to its built-in attack bonus. The first is that he will barely take damage from it and the second is that he can convert it into a Fury Buff with his first Special Attack.
  • Deep Wounds
    • Much of Logan’s damage comes from Bleed effects on his Special 2 and Special 3 Attacks. Increasing that damage can jump up Logan’s damage per second by a noticeable amount.
  • Precision
    • One of Logan’s highest damaging ability is his Critical Bleed found on his Special 2 Attack. Making sure he’s hitting those Critical Hits as often as possible can see his Bleed damage spike up.

Strengths

  • Consistent Regeneration
    • Logan’s Regeneration Buff constantly activates throughout the fight, granting Old Man Logan a fair amount of survivability. Launching a Special Attack will convert this into a Fury, so careful timing is essential.
  • Large Bleed Damage
    • Between his Deep Bleed on Special 3 and his Critical Bleed on his Special 2 Attack, Logan can dish out a lot of direct damage to allow him to bypass tough armor or resistances.

Weaknesses

  • Bleed Dependant
    • Although Logan can use his Special 1 Attack to avoid the use of Bleed, he sacrifices his best damage loop in order to do so and will have a harder time than most dealing with Bleed Immunity.

Recommended Masteries

  • Parry
    • Although Colossus has a built-in Parry-like effect, he gains a decent direct-damage ability if he also has the Mastery. Grab this Mastery if you want Colossus to deal damage with each Parry in addition to taking very little chip damage during Blocks.
  • Double Edge
    • Since Colossus is Immune to Bleed effects, he will only gain the Attack bonus without taking damage. As a slight bonus, this also has a chance to activate his Signature Ability for another Armor Up Buff.

Strengths

  • Extreme Tank
    • Between his many Armor Up Buffs, Organic Steel and indefinite Fatigue, Colossus can make it through numerous attacks that would fell other Champions. He’s also much more resistant to Critical Hits than most Champions.
  • Strong, Difficult-to-Resist Damage Output
    • As Colossus’s damage output is tied to his Armor Rating and his Parry interaction, few Champions can directly counter this since he isn’t relianton putting effects on his opponent.

Weaknesses

  • Reliant on Parry into Heavy
    • Colossus’s strongest combat loop is to make use of his built-in Parry mechanics in conjunction with consistent Heavy Attacks. This will build his Armor Ups quickly while also doing consistent damage to the opponent. Unfortunately, if Colossus can’t access either of these mechanics, his overall damage output will take a serious hit.
