Iron Man takes on Lex Luthor in the latest Death Battle! Which suit-bearing billionare will survive their explosive fight to the death?

We've got the Armored Avenger, you may recognize him from Marvel vs Capcom, going one on one with Superman's arch nemesis, Lex Luthor, in a Death Battle!

Wiz and Boomstick break down both combatants, usually giving us at least one nugget of information we didn't know previously in the process, and then pit them against each other in a fantasy duel.

If there's a wild card in this one, it's probably that Lex is armed with alien technology. Though Iron Man has dealt with gods and aliens before, "alien technology" is a pretty broad descriptor and could sway the battle depending on the specifics.

After the massive success of Marvel's recent Daredevil series on Netflix, a lot of people are stoked for the upcoming Iron Fist series, set to launch at some point in 2016. What fantastic timing by HT MrFlubbs, then, to pick this opportune moment to share a Iron Fist combo video that goes above and beyond what we've come to expect from the character.

'I'm the most complete Marvel player but I don't think there is a clear #1...' FChamp talks Final Round, his new job and his plans for the future

Final Round 18 was a huge hit this past weekend with a huge list of international names and fierce competition. Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3 victor, Filipino Champ, sat down with The Score eSports to discuss his tournament win.

In true Filipino Champ fashion, the Marvel veteran tweeted out a slightly snide, "I can Block" after his impressive showing at last weekend's tournament. The tweet itself received much attention and was a great segue into his post tourney interview wherein he revealed a major part of his in game mindset.

"Defense to me is the highest attribute in fighting games and I work hard developing my defense over time. Thanks to it my tourney results are pretty consistent."

Moving on to ask where Champ places himself on the top player list for Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3, he replied that he's "the most complete Marvel player but I don't think there is a clear #1. Chris (Gonzales), Justin (Wong), and I are all tied I think. No one else comes close."

Pretty bold words, but with the track record to back them up, it's difficult to disagree. Champ would go on to discuss his current practice situation as well as his new found fire for Street Fighter. Hit the jump to see more.

The Wong Factor can't be stopped, Momochi makes incredible reads, and more in these Final Round 18 highlights from day 3

The final day of Final Round 18 marked even more upsets and intense action than we thought could follow an equally intense day 2. Not only limited to Ultra Street Fighter 4, amazing moments happened in almost every title played at the tournament. We've highlighted a select few for your pleasure, but you could probably find even more. That's how stacked this tournament really was.

r/Kappa|Kazunoko vs. BT|Marlinpie

No, this isn't Street Fighter; it's Guilty Gear Xrd grand finals. After being knocked into the loser's bracket and crawling his way back into grand finals, r/Kappa's Kazunoko certainly didn't seem in a winning position until he reset the bracket where he continued to dominate all the way through the next two matches and tournament point.

Whatever had shaken BT|Marlinpie, though, looked to have vanished. Regaining his composure, his Zato was able to take Kazunoko's Ky down to a sliver of health. Long sets are full of ebbing and flowing with momentum, and this seemed to be no different. But Kazunoko had other plans. Making a miraculous comeback, he cornered BT|Marlinpie and kept the pressure and combos going until he took the round and the tournament.

This would not be the end of the upsets and wild action of Final Round 18's highlights. To continue seeing intensity that easily rivals yesterday's action, continue reading below.

Life of Nemo: 'I spend 3x more time gaming now than previously' - tips on how you can get better at fighting games

You've seen what a day in MCZ|Daigo's and EG|Momochi's lives look like.

Daigo spends about five to six hours on playing fighting games a day, while Momochi allegedly spends as much as 13 hours a day gaming (though not all of it is fighting games; he does play a lot of Puzzle & Dragons).And from this interview with RZR|Xian we know that he spends about six to eight hours a day gaming.

But these are all numbers for pro gamers who are sponsored to train and go to tournaments; it's part of their job.

What about someone who holds a full-time job outside of their gaming activities, and still manages to be amazingly great at fighting games? Someone like, say, BE|Nemo?

How much time does BE|Nemo spend on gaming? Read on to find out.
