Update: FORT|Cloud805 has won the Power Stone.

It has been revealed what the Power Stone does for the Battle for the Stones tournament. Use it to "harness your power."

In other words, the stone can be used to gain a significant life lead over the opponent. This gives the owner the opportunity to perform the first hit of the match.

Of course, the player is also allowed to perform a combo from this hit. This can potentially lead to a major advantage considering how much damage combos can deal in Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite.

Both players start a match with a full bar of hyper meter. Could this be enough to KO an opponent's first character?

While it isn't stated whether or not this is allowed, more than likely player that has the stone used against them will be able to perform a counter switch once they take enough damage. As characters take damage, they build meter.
