Non Disney Villains Tournament
Overacting Vs Overacting
While Profion, one of Queen Bavmorda's former allies, is away, Durza infiltrates his castle. When Profion returns, Durza mocks him for being allies with Bavmorda. The two engage in a bout of overacting, with Profion ultimately blasting Durza with energy. Durza evaporates into smoke, returning with an entire army of Urgals at his command. The Urgals tear through Profion's castle, forcing the wizard to summon his army of dragons to keep them at bay. Durza takes the opportunity to summon his own Dark Beast, which devours Profion while the wizard is monologuing.
Durza and his allies join forces with Saruman and Captain Hook, once the former arrives in the live-action realm. Durza and his allies witness Morgana Pendragon ascend to the throne of Camelot, joining forces with her; the alliance joins in the merriment as Prince Nuada finishes off Gregor Clegane in the imperial arena.
