Bio

Benjamin Grimm, also known as "Thing", served as the pilot on the starship expedition led by Reed Richards. During the voyage, the ship encountered unprecedented levels of radiation, granting the crew extraordinary powers. Ben gained incredible physical strength, and his body was covered in a flexible, rock-like hide. After returning to earth, the team banded together to form the Fantastic Four. It’s clobberin’ time!

Hints

Immune to Nullify, Fate Seal, and Stagger (e.g. The Hood, Symbiote Supreme)

  • Thing is completely immune to all Nullify, Stagger, and Fate Seal abilities. So any Champions that rely on these, like Symbiote Supreme or The Hood, will have a very hard time fighting him

Protection against very, very high damage

  • Thing’s signature ability is excellent at reducing the damage he takes, but it is normally on a very high cooldown. However, when Thing would take a lot of damage in a single hit, this cooldown is ignored, and his Protection can re-activate. In most situations, this trigger won’t occur. But if an enemy Champion boost their damage to extreme levels using Fury or Critical Damage Rating, they’ll have a hard time fighting through Thing’s Unbreakable Spirit.
Weaknesses added by admin 0 0

Frequent Bleeds

  • Even though Thing is immune to Bleed, whenever he would receive a Bleed he loses two Rock Stacks and doesn’t generate any Fury from their removal. This can’t occur more than once every 2 seconds, but even so, any champion that can frequently, repeatedly, trigger Bleeds will be able to keep Thing’s Rock Stacks and Fury at a low level throughout the fight. This means his Special Attacks won’t gain additional abilities, and he won’t go Unstoppable when struck.
