Entering Marvel Contest of Champions: Apocalypse

He is "The First One."

apocalypse

Thousands of years ago in ancient Aqaba, the first living being on Earth to express the mutant X-gene was born, given the name “En Sabah Nur” or “The First One”. As he traveled the Earth, En Sabah Nur deemed himself “Apocalypse” convincing ancient civilizations that he was a deity and manipulating them into fighting wars which he justified as stimulating growth, judgment, and destruction. 

After conquesting the Earth for many millennia Apocalypse used Celestial technology to enter a period of suspended animation for many centuries, awakening in the current age and deciding the Earth is ready for further examination. Now, he’s the latest to join the roster in Marvel Contest of Champions!

As a character class Mutant, Apocalypse’s basic abilities include Bleed, Weakness, Poison, Concussion, and Degeneration. 

Apocalypse’s tool kit includes three special attacks and one signature attack. Using the Special Attack 1, inflict a Debuff determined by the last Light or Medium Attack thrown. If fighting a Mutant, or if Apocalypse has 4 Genetic Code, trigger both. Light Attack – Inflict a non-stacking Weakness reducing Attack Rating by 25% for 25 seconds. Medium Attack – Inflict a non-stacking Poison dealing 4558 Direct Damage and reduce health recovery by 30% over 25 seconds.

With Special Attach 2, inflict a Debuff determined by the last Light or Medium Attack thrown. If fighting a Mutant, or if Apocalypse has 4 Genetic Code, trigger both. Light Attack – Inflict a non-stacking Concussion reducing Ability Accuracy by 35% for 25 seconds. Medium Attack – Inflict a non-stacking Degeneration dealing 7976.5 Direct Damage over 25 seconds.

And Special Attack 3, all personal Weakness, Poison, Concussion and Degeneration effects on the Opponent are retriggered at +100% Potency and paused indefinitely. This Potency increase does not stack multiple times. If no personal Weakness, Poison, Concussion or Degeneration effects are active, inflict 2 at random. These will not gain additional potency and will not be paused.

Apocalypse’s signature attack, Survival of the Fittest, when Apocalypse doesn’t participate in a fight he enters his Rejuvenation Chamber to slumber. At the start of his next fight, he Regenerates 3749.5 health for each fight his teammates won while he slumbered. This can stack up to 2 times.

Recommended masteries include Inequity, Recovery, and Double Edge. 

Apocalypse’s strengths include Prevent Purify Abilities, Fighting Mutant Opponents, Prevent Evade, and Significantly enhance any Mutant. 

Apocalypse is available for downloading now on Marvel Contest of Champions on iOS and Android devices!
