One of the Marvel vs. Capcom 3 series' strongest competitors, Marlinpie, continues to support the scene by actively streaming Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and sharing content. During a recent live stream, none other than PG|Punk hopped into the chat and asked to run a first-to-five in UMvC3 against PG|Marlinpie.

Punk certainly isn't known for his Marvel play, but is easily considered one of the best Street Fighter 5 players to ever compete. In this video, we're given an opportunity to see what this SF5 contender has to offer in another of Capcom's major fighting games, and he's got quite a bit to show already.

To start out, Punk squares up against a couple of other opponents before taking on Marlinpie. During this time, the Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 legend observes and comments on Punk's skills.

"Yo, wait! He's got Plinks?!" Marlinpie says, surprised to see Punk smoothly utilizing one of the game's higher level movement techniques. "Now he's using Wave Dash."

Punk's team of Magneto, Dr. Doom, and Dante snags several wins before jumping into the FT5 set with Marlinpie. It's clear that the Street Fighter player has done his homework and has a good grasp of how the game works.

You can check out how Punk stacks up against Marlinpie in the video below. If you'd like to jump straight to their set, skip to about 13:14.
