When most people think of Justin Wong and iconic moments, they look back on his infamous moment at Evo 2004, where Daigo Umehara full-parried Chun-Li’s Super Art and comboed into Justin’s demise. But another iconic moment that Justin is known for is an epic comeback with just Cyclops in Marvel vs. Capcom 2.

theScore chronicles this moment in their most recent video on the FGC. They detail Wong’s East Coast rivalry with IFC Yipes, who was one of the few players at the time who could stand toe-to-toe with the King of Marvel. Showing several instances where Yipes had the upper hand and didn’t fully capitalize, they show exactly how Justin’s patience and understanding of the game led to his victory that came against all odds.
