Guardian Synergy Guide

Guardian is a Tech class champion in the Contest of Champions who forms a synergy with 12 other characters, available as a 2-Star, 3-Star, 4-Star, 5-Star and 6-Star champion.

In his earlier days, James Hudson worked for Am-Can as a petrochemical engineer. When he discovered the company's deep-seated corruption, Hudson left immediately, stealing his latest invention: a super-suit primed to search for underground oil deposits. Fleeing the consequences of his actions, Hudson became Guardian, the founding member of Canada's elite team of superhumans known as the Alpha Flight, defenders of the True North.
