To be a little more clear on the subject matter:
Who is the (or your) best character to put on anchor (disregarding your Point and Mid Characters)? What are the advantages? What are the disadvantages? Can the character “hang” without Lvl. 3 X-Factor? How deadly is the character WITH Lvl. 3 X-Factor? What do you think SRK?
In my opinion, I like to believe Dr. Doom is a pretty good anchor character for the following (pros/cons) reasons:
PROS: Easily do 700k Dmg Mid-Screen (800k Dmg Corner) WITHOUT X-Factor. When he’s in X-Factor Lvl. 3, 2-3 Foot Dive Loops and your character is gone. His combos are always meter positive. His corner pressure can be ridiculous. And of course… Foot Dive priority and it’s ridiculous crossover properties.
CONS: The only real problem I see with Doom as an anchor character is the fact he is the opposite of a keep-away team. If you manage to have a character like Dormammu or you have a homing assist on deck, then Doom seriously has a slim chance of survival (slim chance is the player screws up the keep-away).
