The esports organization Misfits have clearly made a bargain with Dormammu, by signing one of the titanic forces of Marvel as their first traditional fighting game player. Host of Arizona’s Undefeated tournament series, one of the key figures of the newly formed Curleh Circuit, and third place finisher at both Evo 2013 and 2016 for Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3, Misfits have added Armando “Angelic” Mejia to their ranks.

Alongside his prestigious history as a Marvel competitor, Angelic is also bringing his years of TO experience to Misfits, which should help the organization grow its presence within the greater FGC. With Misfits also having Larry Lurr under its banner–who is a director of the much heralded 2GGC Series for Super Smash Bros. for Wii U–the team is looking to become a player and organizational powerhouse in the future.

“I am extremely excited to partner up not only as a player but as a TO. I truly believe that Misfits will do extremely well in the FGC and I’m excited to be a part of the team,” said Angelic, in a statement provided to ESPN Esports. He will be sporting his brand new Misfits jersey at West Coast Warzone this weekend.
