"The Super Smash Bros. franchise started on N64, moved to the GameCube with Melee, onto the Wii with Brawl, and now they're preparing to reveal their Wii U iteration. Like other crossover fighting franchises, just as important as the fighting moves and locales—if not more so—are the characters. Who would show their face to reign supreme in the Nintendo Universe? Some are fan favorites, like Mario and Princess Peach; others have earned their share of the cold shoulder. (Come on, who really uses Olimar?)
As soon as it was announced the topic of speculation was who's new in the next Super Smash Bros. Allow me to make a few suggestions."
