LEAGUE FINALS XV

“The Final Battle. Super Heroes vs Super Villains. Choose Your Side!”

“With Great Power comes Great Responsibility.” As the era of Human Super Powers dawns upon us, so begins the battle between those that choose to use their Powers for Villainy versus those that choose to use their powers for Heroism. The Final Battle between Super Hero vs Super Villain will come to an epic conclusion as the LEAGUE presents LEAGUE FINALS XV on Friday, October 25th and Saturday, October 26th!! 

A vast amount of humanoids began manifesting the mutant gene early this year. They each were blessed with super human abilities. Their outrageous capabilities include ability of Flight, Invincibility, Strength, Psychokinesis, Magic, Teleportation, Shape Shifting, Time Travel, only to name a few. For months,  they have walked amongst us with their newfound powers and have chose one of two sides: The Super Villains and The Super Heroes. 

The Super Villain is a team of bandits, rogue characters, and outcasts. They bring damage, chaos, and trouble whenever they appear. The Super Hero is team is admired for their brave deeds and noble qualities. They bring tranquility, peace, and unity to the world. 

Throughout the year, a tumultuous battle between both sides have ensued. The League has called upon each Super Human to the League Finals to conclude an end to this year long conflict. At stake will be a Championship Ring of Empowerment to each winner. The Ring of Empowerment amplifies ones powers and transforms them into a Mega Human!! 

Are you ready to test your super capabilities versus other heroes and villains? 

Which side will you choose: Super Villain or Super Hero? 

Join us in the Final Battle! Villains vs Heroes! Choose your side!
