Bio

The Vision, who's true name is Aarkus, is an alien law enforcement officer from a dimension known as Smokeworld. After being accidentally contacted by a scientist from Earth, Aarkus came to our dimension to fight crime. He has the ability to control gasses, smoke, and cold, even teleporting to the far side of the world using little more than a smouldering cigar.

Hints

Strengths 0 0
  • Power Gain: Aarkus starts each fight with a pretty strong Power Gain Buff, and gains an additional one every 10 seconds. Once he has a few of these, they more than compensate for his decreased base Power Rate, and he’s able to use Special Attacks way more frequently than the average Champion.
  • Anti-Power Control: Aarkus has a few abilities which punish Champions who try to control his Power. He reduces the strength of Power Drain effects and the duration of Power Lock against him. He also gains an additional Power Gain buff whenever he receives a Power Drain or Lock.
  • Armor Break and Armor Shattered: While he has at least one Power Gain Buff, Aarkus applies an Armor Break Debuff every 2.3 seconds, just by being near them. These Armor Breaks are also Paused while close to Aarkus, so he’s able to build up quite a few, and deal progressively more damage to the Opponent. Finally, he can convert all these Armor Breaks into a very long Armor Shattered Debuff, which has a higher overall potency and shuts down Robot systems for its duration.
Weaknesses 0 0
  • Consistent Nullify – Doctor Strange, Symbiote Supreme: Aarkus needs Power Gain Buffs before he has access to any of his other abilities. He gains one of these every 10 seconds, but if an Opponent is able to consistently remove them with a Nullify effect, they’ll keep Aarkus under control.
  • Coldsnap and Armor Break Immunity – Mephisto, Human Torch, Thing: Aarkus’ other major threat is that while Opponents have an Armor Break or are Armor Shattered, he deals Coldsnap damage to them just by being near them. But if the Opponent is Immune to any of those effects, they can just ignore this damage entirely.

Frozen Air
While Aarkus has a Power Gain Buff, he freezes the area near him. Every 2.3 second(s) the Opponent spends near Aarkus, they gain an Armor Break Debuff, decreasing Armor Rating by X for 5 second(s). These Armor Breaks are capped at 10.
Armor Break Debuffs on the Opponent are Paused while they are near Aarkus.
