Entering Marvel Contest of Champions: Guardian

Meet the founding member of Alpha Flight!

guardian

In his earlier days, James Hudson worked for Am-Can as a petrochemical engineer. When he discovered the company’s deep-seated corruption, Hudson left immediately, stealing his latest invention: a super-suit primed to search for underground oil deposits. 

Fleeing the consequences of his actions, Hudson became Guardian, the founding member of Canada’s elite team of superhumans known as the Alpha Flight, defenders of the True North. Recruit him for your roster in Marvel Contest of Champions now!

As a character class Tech, Guardian’s basic abilities include Force Field, Armor Up, and Perfect Block. 

Guardian’s tool kit includes three special attacks and one signature attack. Using Supersonic Charge, after activation, gain 3 Force Field Charge(s). The last hit inflicts a Taunt Debuff lasting for 6 seconds. Opponents that are Taunted have their Attack Rating reduced by 40% and have 70% higher chance to activate a Special Attack.

With Electromagnetic Beam, the first hit consumes all Force Field Charges, increasing Attack Rating by 2876.25 for each Force Field Charge for the duration of the Special Attack. If Guardian has 3+ Force Field Charges consume 1 Armor Up Buff, inflicting a Shock Debuff, dealing 5752.5 Energy Damage over 3 second(s).

Using Striking Oil, on activation, gain 6 indefinite Force Field Charge(s). Inflict a Shock Debuff, dealing 3451.5 Energy Damage over 20 second(s).

Guardian’s signature ability Weapon Alpha, when Guardian has an Armor Up effect, gain the following effects: +2563.46 Block Proficiency, +8392.11 Energy Resistance, +79.98% Bleed Resistance, and +314.01 Critical Damage Resistance. 

Recommended masteries include Double Edge and Willpower.
