Bio

Born into the Inhuman Royal Family of Attilan, Medusa was exposed to the mutagenic Terrigen Mists when she was only an infant. This transformation endowed her with tougher-than-steel hair and the ability to control each strand like an added appendage. Along with her husband, Black Bolt, Medusa leads her people as the Queen of the Inhumans in their search for a better place in the world.

Hints

Fighting Against added by Torva 0 0
When Medusa gains 3 fury stacks and enters her Living Strands mode she can still be struck once without any chance to auto-block or parry. Use this to damage her while keeping yourself out of the corner.
Strong Match-Ups added by admin 0 0

Black Panther (Civil War)

  • Medusa’s new Armor Shattered Debuff prevents opponents from activating their Armor Buffs, meaning Black Panther will not be able to take advantage of his Reflect Stun ability.

Ultron, Vision (Robots)

  • Armor Shattered has a pretty long duration, and against Robots it has an extremely potent bonus which is reducing their Ability Accuracy to 0. A great counter to Ultron’s Regeneration and Vision’s Power Gain effects.
Weak Match-Ups added by admin 0 0

Doctor Strange

  • Medusa heavily relies on her Fury Buffs to Auto Block and for general damage output. Doctor Strange not only has the power to passively Nullify those Buffs, but also has Class Advantage against Cosmic Champions.

Colossus, Ghost Rider

  • Bleed Immune Champions greatly reduce Medusa’s burst damage capabilities.
