The rumor mill is swirling again about a possible announcement of Marvel vs Capcom 4 and while supposedly leaked logo teases were proven to be fake, the talk of the actual game goes on. I don't know if it's a real project or just fanboy dreams, but if it turns out to be real, I know I have a few characters in mind on both teams that I'd like to see join the fight. Just as I did when Marvel vs Capcom 3 was announced, I've put together a brief list of Capcom and Marvel combatants that deserve a shot at glory alongside Iron Man, Ryu, Thor, and Mega Man (and Mega Man had better be included this time!).
"It's not about the size of the artillery. It's about choosing the perfect bullets. Storm, Iron Man, Reed Richards... they all know their own teams inside and out, which is critical--but limiting. I got this job because I'm good at mixing and matching. At studying everyone's strengths and weaknesses and thinking outside the boxes labeled "Avengers" and "Masters of Evil". Remind me to tell you sometime how Quicksilver could kill the Hulk if he wanted to." - Phil Coulson, SHIELD Vol. 3, #1
The leader of the Mega Man X Mavericks deserves a chance to shine. I want to see him brought back to his original form from the original Super NES game as a base appearance, red cape and all. His Wolverine-like claws made of electricity would make him an excellent successor for the X-Men favorite if the rumor about the emphasis on Marvel Cinematic Universe characters over the X-Men and non-MCU characters hold true. Let his later overly complicated forms and ultimate battle bodies appear as devastating super combos and ultimate attacks. Maybe his robot dog, Velguarder, could tag in as an assist character.
