So I consider the top 6 partners for Firebrand to be Ammy, Doom, Sentinel, Dormamu, Skrull, and last but not least… Spencer. I feel like he’s hardly mentioned around here even though Spencer can basically use the same assists as Firebrand and be just as effective with added bonus of being a grown-ass man who deals grown ass man damage.
On top of the versatility, Spencer grants Firebrand some things he needs.
- Someone who can set-up an unblockable reset (Bionic Arm)
- Someone who can consistently set-up an unblockable (Bionic Fucking Arm vs. Anything)
- Great DHC Damage (Bionic Manuevers).
- An extremely solid teammate who can hold the line (without x-factor) if things go sour.
Spencer is a character who deals insane damage, doesn’t have many challenging match-ups, grants one of the best Hyper Combos in the game, can set-up unblockables, and can use Cold Star, Drones, and Rocks/Plasma/Missiles, just as effectively as Firebrand.
Anyway what are your opinions on Spencer as teammate for FB? Specifically, for people who don’t want to cast all their bets on Firebrand?
