Karnak Synergy Guide

Karnak is a Skill class champion in the Contest of Champions who forms a synergy with 7 other characters, available as a 3-Star, 4-Star, 5-Star and 6-Star champion.

Karnak Mander-Azur, Inhuman philosopher and Magister of the Second Tower of Wisdom, refused the transformative Terrigen Mists and chose instead to train his body and mind like no other. Through his training, Karnak has gained immense insight into both himself and others, allowing him to see the flaw in all things and strike down his opponents with ruthless physical and mental precision.
