Didn't Stryke say you can't block after pheonix's transforming animation? How does this work?
I don't even know, I've spent HOURS trying to replicate that and not being able to.
Died against a Dante's Cold Shower during a combo, he canceled into Prop Shredder before "I CAN'T CONTROL IT!" at point-blank range, I held back to make sure nothing clipped me out of it, and Prop Shredder powered through Dark Phoenix Rising's knockback and hit me while I was holding back.
I've almost convinced myself it was a one-off glitch. Or maybe he was juuuuust outside of DPR's range(while still being in range with Prop Shredder), but that still wouldn't explain why I couldn't block out of it. --- Hell If I Know What Marvel Team I'm Maining...

There isn't much blockstun keeping Phoenix in place before Firebrand's unblockable hits. For a lot of those, it looks like you might be able to XFC the last hit of blockstun and air dash up, dodging Firebrand's unblockbale. --- My Ultimate Dormammu Guide: http://tinyurl.com/6mr4lhv My UMvC3 Team Building Guide: http://tinyurl.com/8x865ra
