Much like Colossus, the Thing has a high defense and can trade blows with the toughest of enemies. He doesn’t Bleed or take any other negative Perks like that. He is a few more Command Points than Colossus, but I really don’t see why.
He’s a good pick up. No pun intended he’s a very solid character. He can Protect and take all the blows and still end up fighting. He does have a high critical hit and it comes down to preference of who you’d rather have. Personally, I think Colossus is cooler, but it’s very close to dead even.
