Chun-Li, a Chinese crime fighting vixen with Sequoias for thighs, is the first female character ever to appear in a 1-on-1 fighter. This distinction, however, is merely a side note in the story of her rise to fame, which ultimately branded her as one of the greatest fighters of gaming, and inspired countless future game heroines.
Blanka, also one of the original eight playable characters in Street Fighter II, never quite approached Chun-Li's popularity, but has gained a strong fan following nevertheless. Oh, and he could totally beat up The Hulk.
To welcome the return of Chun-Li and Blanka in Street Fighter IV, Games Radar are taking a peek at their pasts - in games, comics, cosplay, and more.
