Viscant is my Marvel tournament hero. To be honest, i haven’t even gotten the chance to watch all of his top 8 matches, but i’m certainly happy with the results. He was definitely ahead of the curve with Phoenix, picking her up before she started dominating indiscriminately.
players: Filipino Champ (Dormammu/Magneto/Phoenix) vs Viscant (Wesker/Iron Man/Phoenix)
The grand finals set begins at around the 53-minute mark. At this point, the strangest thing about MvC3 is how much of an equalizer Phoenix can be. It seems like no matter how far ahead one player gets, the game always ends with Phoenix vs Phoenix sans assists. My favorite moment happens at 1:03:07, when Wesker manages to convert the midscreen air bullet into a full combo against Magneto’s tag. That probably decided the final match.
