Contest of Champions (CoC) Episode #17: Thor vs. Magneto

Welcome to Contest of Champions (CoC) Podcast, Episode #17! CoC is an interactive player vs. player game where your favorite Marvel characters go head to head to answer the eternal question of “who can beat whom in a fight?”
Join Jeff Jackson and Ian Johnson every week as they welcome two team managers who have a stable of five characters each ready to blast, zap, snikt, thwip, and smash their way to be the last one standing! It’s a little bit fan fiction, a little bit debate, a little bit role playing, and a whole bunch of fun! It’s an interactive adventure for the managers, and for the community.
This week, we’re joined by only one competitor, Dan Briand, as Andy Liegl is nowhere to be found!

Episode #17

Dan’s fight is from X-Factor #228 by Peter David and Leonard Kirk, where Bloodbath takes on the whole team. 
Jeff’s fight is from Avenging Spider-Man #2 by Zeb Wells and Joe Madureira, where Red Hulk takes on the new ruler of the Moloids, Ra’ktar!
Ian’s fight is from X-Club #1 by Simon Spurrier and Paul Davidson, where Dr. Nemesis fights with his words against Dr. Kavita Rao.
And finally, here’s the big fight! We’re in the FINAL FOUR! This week it’s the most awesome Asgardian vs. the most marvelous mutant!
