First off is the Energy Condenser skill. Defeating an enemy with Unibeam will result in them dropping a Heroic Orb. Using the Unibeam with this skill at the right time will let you get to use any Heroics you as much as you want, as long as you defeat enemies with the Unibeam first.

4. Reflective Barrier

This skill is an upgrade to Energy Barrier, and can only be unlocked once Iron Man is at a higher level. The upgraded Energy Barrier is now capable of reflecting projectiles back to the attacker. It will still be destroyed after taking too much damage, so don’t depend on this too much unless absolutely necessary.

3. Air Superiority

Iron Man can fly in with style, but with this skill, he can fly in with damage too. Air Superiority increases the damage of any Range Attacks while flying. Some players will wonder why it won’t work while floating, and it’s because you need to be in flight mode. Hovering around does not count.

It may not be a lot, but it’s enough if you have the right skills that spawn more Heroic Orbs to get your Support Heroic full again.
