Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Enter Phoenix & Mike Haggar

Capcom continues to reveal their full lineup for Marvel vs. Capcom 3, announcing Phoenix (Jean Grey) and Mike Haggar as the latest fighters.

These picks, particularly Jean’s, are definitely alright by me. I grew up on the classic X-Men run by Chris Claremont and John Byrne, which  of course included the series’ magnum opus, The Dark Phoenix Saga, so the character has always had a special place in my comic heart of hearts and it was gratifying to see the Dark Phoenix form make an appearance right off the bat in the preview video below. I’m also hoping (though I doubt we’ll actually see it) that Rachel Summers will be an alternate Phoenix character. She’s been a fantastic character in her own right for an awful long time.

At this point I remain relatively unfamiliar with Final Fight’s Mike Haggar, but I’m looking forward to playing all of these characters come February 15th!
