Kevodaman is No. 1 in the Big Apple after Week 1 of GameStop Hometown Heroes: Injustice 2

The wait is finally over – the GameStop Hometown Heroes: Injustice 2 tournament series is officially live, and the first week did not disappoint. We saw an impressive amount of talent coming out of the New York scene, with nearly every single match going to a Game 5.

Among the many highlights from this first week of action, we had Kinetic Balding bring two unexpected characters to the table – Cyborg and Captain Cold – against King Raj’s Firestorm. In a battle of the elements, Balding was able to take the first victory of the evening.

Unfortunately, Balding had to resign after his victory, but we’re looking forward to seeing more surprising plays from him!

In Top Tier Zeus’ Super Girl we found our second closest match of the night, but it wasn’t enough to take the game from Son Goku’s Superman, who took the win and moved on in the bracket.

Our grand champion for the week was Kevodaman’s Black Adam, who fought his way to victory after gaining an impressive read on Kinetic Predator’s Superman.
