I have been playing Ares since Injustice first launched and if there is one thing I know, its that being invisible makes Ares hard as hell to block. Besides his great corner shenanigans, I have noticed that even the best of Ares players don't use mb invisibility midscreen. Since we don't have a thread specifically for midscreen invisibility, I decided to start one up! If anyone has more stuff to add plz do!

First off, invisible setups after an overhead. Even though Ares doesn't have a fast overhead, he does have great options after it. First, b23 , d2 ,mb invisibility, f23, mixup. Since a large percent of Ares's resets come after a f23 in someway, this set up is perfect if you notice your opponent falling for those pesky wake up mb godsmacks and teleport set ups. You can also do d3 after the mb invisibility for a hard knockdown if you think they wont wake up. For damage (mainly while invisible), I love to tdc the ax and jump forward after the f23 for a quick cross up.

I don't remember who created this but I will say thank you! This set up is pure gold when someone is blocking your b23 and b2d4. The inputs are b21, mb invisible, d1d4. This is a frame trap so use anytime when u think your opponent will make a move. You can also do b2d4 for an overhead ,but its not a block so be careful.

The base of this setup was posted by Dislexsik on the quick stand thread. (Thanks InFlames! Glad you found this quick stand stuff) The inputs are d1d4, j2, b23, d2, mb invisibility, d2, mb godsmack (normal version). This set up is extremely dangerous if your opponent cant clash. It does use two meter(two and a fourth if u want the godsmack combo after), but if they don't stop the quick stand you are guaranteed one invisible mix up after the almost 60 percent. If the invisible mixup hits and you have meter for the godsmack combo, you can do ridiculous damage!

( P.s. the tdc ax into crossup is mean while invisible, that's my go to thing until my opponent blocks it lol! )

Nice stuff, you don't get that much damage off b23 midscreen so maybe this could be a good option.
I hate that if they block it u still don't get much damage, but Ares uses a lot of meter anyway and u do get to start Ares' most powerful tool in my op. Invisible frame traps ! It's only for a few seconds but hell most people can't stop his frame traps when u can see him.

Bish pls. You aren't a gimmicks type player. You always go straight for the damage wherever possible. You may pull this stuff off once and think you are awesome and then that's it you'll never try it again.
Burn! I think Flash's tech is filthier than this LOL. Getting better with Flash as well.
Regardless, this tech is awesome.

Good shit. That was me who posted about the b21 mb inv d1d4 frametrap :p
Yo that shit comes handy! Ares gets punished so hard if u know the match up so this really tricks the shit outta people. For some reason going invisible makes people want to press stuff but it also makes them hesitate lol.

Good stuff, thanks for posting this

Do you know offhand if they can jump out of the d2 quickstand set up?
I don't think they can. They can wake up and maby roll but I don't think jump. They can jump the b23 one that ends in d3 but they still get hit. If u did d4 u get all your damage but not 3d2.

Flash ain't got invisible frame traps! Lets see flash take 90% with slightly over two bars and basically one mix up(the other one is invisible). I still hate flash lol. That fast overhead just kills me.

@Zyphox back me up here lol
Anyway this tech unarguably takes Ares to a whole new level. However, keep in mind that it requires a lot of meter burning!
Let's see Ares do a 57% combo with just 1 meter lol ( the "Jim" combo LOL )
Go check @BoricuaHeat 's standing reset in the Flash's forum... FILTH! LOL
Plus his F3 is a killer.
Flash top 5 :p *jim jim jim jim jim jim*

i was trying it in training mode and they can't jump out even if they tech roll but there were a few times i think if i tech rolled at the earliest time then the godsmack would whiff. but yea u can wake-up out of it once u see the red glowy thingy coming from ares' godsmack. i think it's lame how that part doesn't go invisible. u can also tech roll/wake-up out of tdc too and if u try to godsmack their tech roll they can jump out. then again ares is a gimmick character so he may need to do this kinda stuff to win.

If u see them rolling try doing a farther god smack(sometimes it doesn't work). Normally it catches them but u have to see that they doing so u waste meter sometimes.
