For the second installment of this game, I'm going to cover the combatants on the Capcom side and try to give a little background on each fighter.
As with the Marvel side, there are the returning characters from the first game: Chun-Li, Ryu, Zangief, Morrigan, Captain Commando, MegaMan, Strider, and Jin.
This game also adds in a slew of other fighters from multiple games in the Capcom library.
A human/cat hybrid from the Darkstalkers fighting game of horror characters. She is quick and nimble and uses cat based moves in her bag of tricks including scratches, cat litter, and other cat helpers.
A sort of joke character in the Street Fighter games who wants to be like Ryu and Ken but is too silly. He throws cards and is a lot weaker than the others even as far as wearing a pink outfit. His inclusion is very curious.
Another from Street Fighter, he is a US army man with a serious head of hair. He can throw sonic booms and is a sort of average fighter type like captain america.
He is a giant cactus creature from Mexico who uses various mexican dances and instruments in his moves. He was created soley for this game with no other game association. He is a larger character and a bit hard to use but fun.
From the Street Fighter games, Ken is just about the same as Ryu. He can throw the same fireballs and all of his moves are pretty much the same but use fire. He wears a red outfit and has long blonde hair to differenciate him from Ryu.
From the Darkstalkers game, she is a little girl based on little red riding hood who packs some serious heat. She may look innocent but she has a ton of weaponry and guns and missles at her disposal. She can also call upon the woodsmen to add some extra added firepower. She is quick and has a lot of moves to constantly keep you on your toes.
A monkey type creature from the old SonSon games from way back. He or She....not sure....uses a large staff in their attacks and comes into battle on a flying cloud.
Almost a Guile clone from Street Fighter, Charlie has almost the same moves and isn't much different from Guile, there really isn't anything that makes him stand out.
An evil boss from previous Street Fighter games. He is a bitter rival and enemy of Ryu and Ken and has the same moves as them except more powerful and quicker.
A pirate woman made soley for this game. Her moves include treasure chests with ghosts and a large ship coming into battle for a charge attack, she can also provide moves involving water and a large anchor in her moves.
An indian character from Street Fighter who can stretch his limbs and blow fire from his mouth. He is a good character to use long range.
A mummy character from the darkstalkers game who uses various mummy-like moves to wrap the opponent up or use sarcophagus moves to crush or harm the opponent.
A character from a game called Star Gladiator. He uses a beam sword almost like a lightsaber and is rather quick with it. His moves revolve around the sword and is good to use as a weapon character.
The boss character from Street Fighter who is always responsible for all the wrong doings in those games. He is larger than usual in muscle mass and has powerful magic attacks, he looks like a general and has always tried to stop Ryu.
A schoolgirl who is a big fan of Ryu from the Street Fighter games. She is a physical fighter with not many magic moves and the ones she does have are almost like the ones that Ryu has. She's another quicker character and is a more standard average fighter to use to get used to things.
A girl who sits inside a large robot to do all of her fighting. She does everything she can do attack with the suit and what she can't do she has little Lego men do for her. She comes from the MegaMan series and has helped him out in the past.
My personal favorite from the Street Fighter games. She is a leg heavy fighter using lots of kick and trip moves with little punching. She used to work for M.Bison under mind control but has since been on her own. The outfit in the game is different from what she usually wears but she controls just as good as in Street Fighter.
One of the main characters of the Resident Evil series, Jill arrives being able to use a lot of the weapons from the game including her gun and missile launcher. She can also call out various enemies from the Resident Evil game for an extra added assist such as a crow, zombie dog, or a zombie itself. Her special power move can call out the final boss of Resident Evil for help, the Tyrant.
A little robot girl from the MegaMan series who is weak and small and not capable of a lot. Her moves are a lot like megaman even to the point of copying them but she isn't much of a character and rarely used.
The little lego guy that helps out Tron Bonne is used by his lonesome. He is very small and fast but because he is so small, his attacks don't hurt as much. He is hard to hit due to his size and his special moves involve calling out other lego guys and growing in size to a huge lego man.
That takes care of the Capcom side of things, in the final installment, we take a look at the gameplay, the changes, the backgrounds, and the legacy that is Marvel vs. Capcom 2.
