My team did very well last week. The first team i played against was a Super boy, Eradicator, and Clark Kent team. I dominated in that match.
The second team I played against was Cave Carson, Mister Miracle and Oberon, Blue Beetle and Booster Gold, and Animal Man team. The Bat-Man was knocked out late in he game, but he did his job. Mister Miracle and Oberon gave me the most trouble, but I was able to over come the 20 defense to win.
My last match was against my older brother who is down in Florida for the weekend. He was playing a double Supermen team. He went two games without any figure dying. He easily KO'ed Flash and Bats then knocked my Earth One Superman to his last click. I hypersoniced and hit one superman for five penetrating damage, knocking him out and picking up another object. He pushed to hit me and missed. I pushed to try and KO the second Superman, but I missed and KO'ed myself.
This week I went 3-0 for the fist time. This also marks the first time I came in first in competition. The MVP was definitely Black Adam. Every figure I KO'ed was by Black Adam. The trick was having him as the big target and perplexing up his defense to a 20 or 21 most of the time.
The first team I played was against Super Girl, Cyborg Superman, Super Boy, and Steel. Black Adam knocked Super Boy out in one turn, then crushed Steel in two turns. Cyborg Superman KO'ed Batman and afterwards Black Adam demolished Super Girl then destroyed Cyborg Superman.
The second game was against Metallo, Kyptonite Man, Lex Luthor, Bruno M., and Intergang Underboss. That game was close, Black Adam knocked out Metallo and Intergang Underboss and I lost The Atom and Mr. Terrific.
The third game was the closest of the night, I played against Phoenix, Emma Frost, Iceman, and Cyclops. The game ended with Black Adam and Batman fighting Phoenix. The prize I won was the manhunter grandmaster. We will have a review of him later.
I went through our inventory and found a few figures that have 19 defense. I do not know how well they will work together, but it will be fun. I think The Question with his outwit/perplex and Count Vertigo with his 3 person Incap might allow me to control the pace of the game. Night Crawler picking up figures and bringing them to Doomsday for a good old fashion beating. We will have a video review of both teams soon, and a brief summary of the days tournament.

The team I played for the tournament was 200 point Black Adam and the 99 point Maxwell Lord. Black Adam in my opinion should be played at the 300 or 100 point level. the 200 point level is only good if you have the right support for him.
