Uses for this FigureEdit

  • Retired from Tournament Play.
  • The Statesman adds a feeling of unpredictability to the game. Although his attack doesn't begin astoundingly high he is backed up Battle Fury through 7 clicks. He's got an extremely solid defense on his first click, coupled with doses of Invulnerability, which will help mitigate any damage he might receive so that he ends up landing on one of his great clicks.
  • Unlike COH04 Statesman, this version has range. Which is a bit odd with all those clicks of Battle Fury.

Character InformationEdit

Statesman 1

The Power of Statesman

Statesman [2] is one of the first heroes of Paragon City. He is the leader of the Freedom Phalanx [3] as well as one of the co-founders.

Instead of coming home in 1918, Marcus went in search of the fabled Well of the Furies. During the war, he had been exposed to Mustard Gas and become ill. He knew that he would prematurely die if he did not find the Well. Friends from his unit joined him in his search including Marcus's best friend, Stephan Richter. They became mercenaries trying to help Marcus find more information on where the Well of the Furies was and how to unlock its power. They were eventually successful and both Marcus and Stephan drank from the Fountain of Zeus within the Well of the Furies, giving them super powers. They would turn out very differently however, as Marcus became Statesman and Stephan became his mortal enemy, Lord Recluse [4].

He is one of the "Surviving Eight" [5], along with Manticore [6] and Positron [7], who helped rebuild Paragon City after the Rikti War [8].
