In Marvel Contest of Champions, Ikaris is a Cosmic class player with basic abilities including Energize, Power Detonation, Incinerate, and Protection. His character is all about pushing the limits. He uses an attack style that involves bombarding the opponent with Incinerate before using his Special 3 to finish it off. Being a Cosmic character, his forte is his special attacks and the plethora of buffs he possesses. In simpler terms, he is going to relentlessly barrage his enemy with special attacks until he wins.

But that doesn’t mean he can’t be defeated. Fly way too close to the sun and what happens? Power Detonation gets you. If you are unable to keep up with his hyperactive state, Power Detonation will explode on you. Ikaris is also not your best bet against Nullify, Incinerate Immune, and High Energy Resistance Champions because they’re immune to things he is totally dependent on to attack. So, while his brute force may make you want to use him all the time, you must pick your battles wisely. Hit him up with a Despair and Dexterity mastery and he’s going to become a force to be reckoned with on the battleground.
