Summoner Showdown – Week Nine Preview

This is the last week of the Summoner Showdown, and the competitors are
ready to claim that final spot on the Marvel Stage in October, at New York Comic Con.

Marvel Contest of Champions: Summoner Showdown Week Nine starts at
12 PM PDT, Wednesday, September 25th in the Marvel Studios Lounge with Brian Grant who is excited to be back as a host!

Week Nine Challenge

This week, the new crop of competitors will face Maestro’s Mayhem!
They will need to win “old school” utilizing one Champion from a throwback pool, available during Maestro’s debut in the game (2014 – 2015). The winner will be determined by the highest HP %, and if all the contestants lose, the one who inflicted the most damage on their opponent will take this week’s title!
Let’s meet the three new competitors in this week’s #SummonerShowdown!
