In the Story

Hyperion is a Cosmic Champion. Being a Cosmic Champion, he has a Class Bonus against Tech Champions, but is weak to Mystic Champions.


An infant cast into space, Hyperion was the only survivor of a dying race, on a dying world. He crashed to Earth, and was found by a man who called himself Father. Father would teach him right from wrong, good from evil, instilling in him a set of morals which would guide him into using his incredible powers as a sworn protector of our world.

    Strengths and Weaknesses


    • Electro does a lot of Energy Damage. Hyperion is resistant to both Electro's Special Attacks and his Static Shock. Hyperion's Incinerate on his Special 1 also reduces the effectiveness of Electro's block, further reducing the effectiveness of his Static Shock.[1]
    • Hyperion is immune to Poison, substantially reducing Abomination's damage potential against him. Additionally, Abomination's large Health pool and toughness gives Hyperion time to build up his Cosmic Charges against him.[1]
    • Groot is very tough, but doesn't do a ton of damage. This is perfect for Hyperion, as he's put under very little threat while he builds up his Cosmic Charges. Once he's built them up, the Physical Resistance and Fury from those charges make him resilient to what damage Groot can do and powerfully equipped to blast through his defenses.[1]


    • Juggernaut is aggressive. He wants to be Unstoppable and in your face dishing out damage. Against this kind of pressure it will be difficult for Hyperion to build his Cosmic Charges, which he needs to resist Juggernaut's Class Advantaged Physical Damage. Additionally, Stagger will counter Hyperion's Power Gains causing him to burn through his Cosmic Charges very quickly.[1]
    • Scarlet Witch (Classic) as a Champion wants as many Critical Hits as possible, meaning landing a barrage of attacks. Her class advantage will help her do even more damage, and her Nullify can strip Hyperion of his Power Gains, again causing him to convert his Cosmic Charges quickly.[1]
    • Nullify and Power Lock are two of the scariest abilities for Hyperion, and Magik has both. Limbo can also act to counter Hyperion's potential to do a lot of damage in a short window. All in all, Magik is very well equipped to deal with Hyperion.[1]

    Recommended Masteries

    • Stupefy: Hyperion's Special 2 has a good chance to land a long stun. Adding another 0.5 seconds to it makes it long enough to trigger both a Heavy Attack to trigger Fury bonuses, and still start another combo.[1]
    • Liquid Courage: Since Hyperion is immune to Poison, he gains the large Attack bonus and doesn’t take any damage.[1]
    • Recoil: Since Hyperion wants to build his Cosmic Charges, in a longer fight he will want to wait a while before starting to use his Special Attacks. During this time, he will be making full use of the Attack bonus without taking any Recoil damage.[1]


    • Hyperion is the first Champion to have outer space appear in their third Special Attack.
    • He is the first person to do have five hits in a block breaker.
    • He is also inspired in Superman which most people know.
