Nick fits seamlessly into numerous team combinations by offering outstanding utility. He is a formidable leader with a lot of team synergy. He is among the top-tier characters in the Marvel Contest Champions Tier list.

Omega Red

When playing as Omega Red, keeping a close eye on your surroundings is crucial; more Death Spores equals greater damage and a lower likelihood of those pesky Skill Champions Purifying your Stuns from a Parry.
