10 Characters That Should Be In Marvel Vs. Capcom 3

DamnLag - "I know many people will disagree with me, but I’m pretty disappointed with the game’s current roster. Does that mean I don’t like the roster? No. I mean that while the characters look interesting enough that I’ll try everybody at least once, I would have preferred certain other characters. So, I decided to put together a short list of characters I would love to see in Marvel Vs. Capcom 3." (Marvel vs Capcom 3, PS3, Xbox 360)

pfft anything is better than all the garbage characters they are adding

super skrull?
she hulk?
and the list goes on these are just the most notable ones
this character list is a joke
qface64  +   1853d ago
i actually agree

there is no point in she hulk and x23 being in the game since they are pretty much the same thing as hulk and wolverine
its like how in smashbros you have fox and falco both are the same they just do things slightly different

this selecting is actually really bad

watch them offer more characters as paid DLC and everyone will still love it

I'm cool with Haggar ..... but the rest pfft

- I don't like the current roster.
- I don't like the current graphical style.
- I don't like all the DLC milking plans.

I'll stick with the excellent MvC2.

my problem with haggar being in the game is that hes a pointless character when he has the EXACT move sets as zangief

if your gonna have a character that plays exactly like zangief is as big as zangief then you might as well have just kept zangief in the game
Larry L  +   1853d ago
@ Eye......

For the most part you are right, except for one you mentioned....Super-Skrull. Super-Skrull is one of the many Marvel characters that I always felt belonged in Marvel vs Capcom. He's a very cool character, and with the powers of all of the Fantastic 4, he could have some sick move-sets.

I don't care about Haggar, but he's OK just as a different option to Zangief.

But the rest are rediculous. X-23 is only a halfway decent character in comics. Putting her in MvC3 is an absolute waste of roster space. MODOK is also completely rediculous. She Hulk would be OK if the roster were much bigger, but with 18-20 per side it's a wasted spot. I think Dormammu is also a kinda wasted spot unless perhaps Dr. Strange is in.....but even then I don't really see the point. I could make cases for a handfull of other Marvel characters being wasted spots as well.

Marvel characters that SHOULD be in, at least for me to be happy would be Cable (big beefy version from his debut, not the new lean version or even his MvC2 version), Apocalypse, THANOS, Silver Surfer (with Ron Lim style power cosmic effects), Ghost Rider, Juggernaut, a Sentinel, Omega Red and Silver Samurai.

I'm a Marvel fanboy, which is the only reason I'd personally buy this game, so I don't care too much about the Capcom half of the roster. So as long as Bison is in the game I'd be happy....but it has to be with his traditional charge move set, not the moveset that was in MvC2. Also this article mentioning Yellow Devil is actually an option I hadn't even thought of, but is a very good idea. And as they pointed out....his powers would translate perfectly into a fighting game.
RockmanII7  +   1852d ago
@Eye Besides MODOK not being 'serious' enough and X23/She Hulk being unoriginal, whats wrong with those characters? Super Skrull is basically the fantastic four in one, whats the problem there? Spencer and Hagar are classic icons of Capcom and Viper represents the new Street Fighter games (SF4/SSF4/SSF4:3D).

@qface That's the thing, when is the last time someone complained about Falco being in SSB? Why can other games have shoto characters but when MvC3 does everyone acts like it ruins the game even though their are like 40 other people to use.

"watch them offer more characters as paid DLC and everyone will still love it "

Dude every game has DLC. Again, its these double standards saying that 'oh that game can have DLC but if this one does its the company being greedy'. If the DLC is on the disc, that's F'd up, but if it has DLC in general you can't be mad because every game has DLC.

@Eye (again)

The reason Hagar has the same moves as Zangief is because ZANGIEF WAS INSPIRED BY HAGGAR. Haggar's first game was in 1989 and Zangief's first game was in 1991. Haggar had that move set first, if anything Zangief copied of Haggar. Also with Haggar in instead of Zangeif people won't complain about the game having too many Street Fighter characters.

@Larry So basically you don't like anybody new? The point of a new game is to add new characters not just have all the old ones return.
specialguest  +   1853d ago
Definitely Nemesis. Stan Lee would also be cool if done right.

Just imagine him having the abilities of the comic characters he created. The agility of spiderman, powers of the fantastic fours, and when his life bar reaches a low level, he'll have the ability to rage out and becomes his own version of the Hulk.

I love on The Simpsons when Stan Lee was trying to Hulk out. LOL....hilarious. "I swear, it worked once" lol. Classic.
RockmanII7  +   1852d ago
A rep from Capcom said that they were gonna have Nemesis or Tyrant but they wanted the game to have a T rating and they could have brought it up to an M. As for Stan Lee, look at recent characters in fighting games in general. People are mad that MODOK got in because he isn't a serious character. People are saying they would be mad if the Xbox 360 version of MK had an exclusive character that was someone that wasn't extremely serious. People don't like different characters anymore, and an old guy who was never in a comic being on the Marvel side I think would get the same reaction that someone like MODOK is getting now (Though I would love seeing him in and would defend his inclusion until people stopped bashing him).
Prototype  +   1852d ago
I Still hate the fact they cut Strider Hiryu, so I'm skipping over this game
SupahJ  +   1853d ago
I completely agree with Yellow Devil being in the game. That would be an awesome character for the game.
Lord_Doggington  +   1853d ago
maybe not phoenix wright, but definitely a phoenix wright character...maybe larry buttz or godot. you could even do mia and have her change into maya during the course of the game
RockmanII7  +   1852d ago
I would be upset if Yellow Devil got in just becasue of how many other Megaman characters he would have gotten in before. Megaman (any), Dr. Wily, Roll, Zero, Sigma, Vile, Tron, Juno, Bola, and Bass.exe are characters I think would be much more deserving to get in.
FlyWestbrook  +   1853d ago
Stan Lee? huh?
LoaMcLoa  +   1853d ago
The creator of Spider-man and other Marvel-characters.

I'm still surprised that they haven't announced Venom as a character yet... Hope he wont be a DLC characters >:C
kingkads  +   1853d ago
Venom was by far my fav character in number mvc2. If hes not in this game im not buying. Gambit should be in it also.
LukeWashingTons  +   1853d ago
I say Dr. Wily could easily be included without being a Tron Bonne clone.
giantchicken  +   1853d ago
God we need more re characters..
Sub-Zero85  +   1853d ago
Gambit !!
WeaseL  +   1853d ago

PS3gamer4life  +   1853d ago

Burning_Finger  +   1853d ago
The whole list blows.

They should have include this..

-Ryu (Breath of Fire)
-Megaman X
-Fantastic Four
-The Punisher
-Ghost Rider

Bayonetta isn't even a Capcom character...
Larry L  +   1853d ago
Did you just say Bayonetta is a Capcom character?
RockmanII7  +   1852d ago
Bayonetta - Not a Capcom character

Ryu (Breath of Fire) - Name could cause confusion between him and Street Fighter Ryu

Megaman X - Too similar to Classic Megaman who needs a spot more because the classic NES series has nobody in MvC3 and the X series already has Zero.

Fantastic Four - Super Skrull has the same powers as everyone from the fantastic four. Including all of them would just be wasted spots.

The Punisher - Would play to similarly to Chris from RE, though I think Capcom is just gonna save him for DLC because Ryu didn't stop Akuma from getting in.

Ghost Rider - "Didn't know how to incorporate his motorcycle". I don't even know here. I would say Capcom is saving him for DLC too but in Tatsunoko vs Capcom they kept Speed Racer from being in because of his car so IDK. I think it's more of Capcom being uncreative and less of Capcom being greedy here for GR not getting in.
Fatal Blow  +   1853d ago
What i want is all the mvc2 characters and some new like dante,deadpool etc but don't want modok,super skrull,she hulk,x23
Katana Yamato  +   1853d ago
Vergil, Gambit, Rogue, Strider Hiryu (or maybe even Strider Hien), Gene, Psylocke, Blackheart. But mostly Strider and Vergil should be in this game...and Gambit.
MonopolyRSV  +   1853d ago
This character list is worse than the real thing.
telekineticmantis  +   1853d ago
Sagetech  +   1853d ago
Megaman X gets the stick -_-
#14 (Edited 1853d ago ) | Agree(0) | Disagree(0) | Report | Reply
giantchicken  +   1853d ago
WTF would X have that is any different from regular Mega Man?
Sagetech  +   1853d ago
have u played any of the X games (past X3 i think)? Customizable armors (Falcon,Ultimate,Giga etc) each with their own unique characteristics and special move. The moves he acquired during the X series (such as how Zero had X5 moves in TvC). Generally an overall more serious character. And besides...normal Megaman isnt even on the roster this time around so why not?
Lyr1c  +   1852d ago
Megaman.EXE would be the most suitable Megaman for the game...

If you've ever played the Battle Network series, you'd understand why.
supremacy  +   1853d ago
Well here is my edit of the current roster.


1.Mrs marvel
2.The punisher
3.Dare devil
4.Black panther
5.Ghost rider
6.Mr fantastic
8.Silver surfer
9.Black widow


1.Batsu ichimonji-rival schools
2.Saki omokane-tatsunoko vs capcom
3.Samanosuke Akechi-onimusha warlords
4.Strider hiryu-strider
5.Captain commando
6.Regina - dino crisis
7.Tessa - red earth
8.Hayato - plasma sword
9.The brave one - magic sword
10.Edward Falcon-power stone

Now going by this plot and what potentially would make sense for this plot, i added some villains of which most of you are familiar with and some which you might not be so familiar with.


Red skull


Sigma - mega man x series
Strider hien
Hyo Imawano- rival schools R.I.P
Jedah Dohma-Darkstalkers
Shogun Master  +   1852d ago
M.O.D.O.K. is the worst choice IMO, and I love Okami but come 'on shes a wolf.
Lyr1c  +   1852d ago
Horrible list.

My wish-list:
1)Bass.EXE (MM:BN)
2)Megaman.EXE (MM:BN)
3)Carnage (Spiderman)
4)The Silver Surfer (Fantastic 4)
5)Green Goblin (Spiderman)
6)Dimitri (Darkstalkers)
7)Lord Raptor (Darkstalkers)
8)Sieg (Chaos Legion)
xino  +   1852d ago
