Is Doom/Vergil the best shell at the moment?

Seems like the most successful players are rocking the Doom/Vergil shell.

It makes me consider sticking to these guys to make my Ghost Rider something good. It seems this shell makes almost any character better. Examples are Wolverine and Morrigan.

Where are your opinions?

It's the best in terms of general use and versatility. IMO Vergil is the best anchor. Some disagree but at worst he's top 3 anchors. Doom is strong but he has two very different, but very strong assists. Vergil has the best DHC in the game, and doom has one of the best TAC games. There are just so many ways to use this shell. You even mention morrigan and wolverine, two drastically different characters which both are arguably optimized when paired with doom/vergil.

I didn't realize they were a shell. I just thought theyre among the best characters in the game and would obviously work well together, but they don't have any kind of extraordinary synergy or anything.

No. Those 2 together isn't anything special, but they both provide good support while still being capable on point.

This. They're not so much a shell as a pair of dominant characters.

Ok I see what you guys are getting at.

Mags/Doom is probably going to end up being the most powerful shell when its all said and done.

Yea true. The execution barrier will probably mean she have less rep though.

I think its strong, but i dont think its the best. Hawkeye/Vergil is an even better shell than that imo. I think right now Morrigan/Doom at the moment. Magneto/Doom, Vergil/Magneto, Spencer/Hawkeye and a few others are really strong shells i think deserve mention.
