THEY are the Champions

Loki, Loki, Loki … you grandiloquent charmer, you witty imp, you megalomaniacal narcissist demagogue with a pointy hat (and our favorite “hero” of all), when will you stop trying to take over the world? No time soon, we bet. That’s why a mighty chunk of the Marvel Universe superheroes will once again be deployed to battle ol’ Walter Lawson. He’s plotting again: This time, he’s questing after the Wand of Wattoomb. The result? An action-packed live fight (and jokes) with Spider-Man, Black Panther, the Avengers, the Guardians of the Galaxy and Doctor Strange.
