Summoner Showdown – Week One Recap and Challenge Results
The Showdown continues with Deadpool’s “Fun” House challenge. Here’s how that played out for all three players:
Player 1: chunkyb – WINNER
Champion Choice: Iron Man (Infinity War)
Results: KO’d Deadpool in 43 seconds
Recap: The only challenger to bring in a Champion other than Nick Fury! chunkyb put Iron Man (Infinity War)’s armor ups to work, helping him take some extra hits to bring his Health down, before applying Heal Blocks with his Special 1 Attack to keep the Aspect of Chaos and Deadpool’s Regeneration from healing him back up. This ultimately led chunkyb to a fast defeat time that was good enough to seal the win.

Player 2: Duckslug
Champion Choice: Nick Fury
Results: KO’d by Deadpool in 1:03
Recap: Duckslug brought in Nick Fury and almost immediately let Deadpool knock out the Life Model Decoy and bring in a furious Nick Fury. Unfortunately, even with some excellent footwork and gameplay, Deadpool knocked out Duckslug a minute into their bout. It was at that time when their Health switched on… and that could have affected the KO.
Player 3: StarFighter0717
Champion Choice: Nick Fury
Results: KO’d by Deadpool in 2:41
Recap: StarFighter0717 chose Doctor Voodoo for the one-minute warm-up, then switched for the challenge and pulled out Nick Fury as her Champion for the main event! Battling hard she landed 149 hits, a massive number in a tough round (…the highest combo was 126). Her Champion was ultimately taken down by Deadpool in the final 20 seconds.
With Week One in the books, Summoner Showdown – Week Two happens next Wednesday, August 7 at Marvel’s HQ studio in New York.
