If you thought the X Games couldn't get even more high-flying, it has Marvel on its lineup this year! X Games Minneapolis announced that Marvel Day will be part of its four-day schedule which runs from August 1 to August 4 at the U. S. Bank Stadium in the Twin Cities. The extreme sports tournament is just one part of X Fest, a family-friendly entertainment event featuring tons of activities for all ages -- and now there's a special event just for Marvel fans!

Throughout the X Fest event, Marvel fans can test their speed, strength, and ability on the Marvel X Trials Obstacle Course. The top competitors will earn a spot in the Marvel X Trials -- Summer Warrior Jr. Final on Friday, Women’s Final on Saturday, and Men’s Final on Sunday. The medals will be awarded to the winning gold, silver, and bronze competitors for overall Warrior Jr., women, and men. Finalists will also receive this Marvel badge:
