Most of us think of M.O.D.O.K. as purely an Alliance War Defender, but KT1 shows that the Mental Organism Designed Only for Killing has offensive value as well by running him through the Boss Rush.

RichTheMan looks at the character map and makes predictions on who will be joining The Contest.
Dungeon Days will be September 28 – October 1. To maximize the points boost and rewards, you should wait until September 28 at 1pm EST to do your runs for Round 2, and then get your runs for Round 3 done during the first 48 hours. That way all your runs from Round 2 and 3 will count toward achieving the Dungeon Days objectives.
