Two More Marvel vs. Capcom 3 Characters Revealed

Jean Grey as Phoenix and Mayor Mike Haggar are the latest stars to enter the game.

Jean Grey makes her way into Marvel vs. Capcom 3 as Phoenix, Marvel character with a powerful dark side. As Phoenix, she exhibits fire-based telekinetic powers, and one of her special attacks even transform her into Dark Phoenix, akin to "Evil Ryu"-like character transformations in prior iterations of the Vs. series.

Mike Haggar, mayor of Metro City, stars as the second newly announced addition. The former wrestler reportedly plays similarly to Zangief, being a grapple/suplex based fighter. Haggar can also attack with weaponry similar to Final Fight. An aerial attack using a large pipe was showcased in his announcement video. In addition, it appears that Metro City is a playable venue in the game.

Press Release


Today we’re officially announcing Phoenix and Haggar for Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds!

Mutant Jean Grey became the receptacle for the powerful Phoenix Force, granting her near god-like powers when it becomes fully active, as it unleashes the fury of the Dark Phoenix when Jean is knocked out with a full Hyper Combo gauge. Other Marvel characters include Storm, She-Hulk, Magneto, M.O.D.O.K., Spider-Man, X-23, Dormammu, Thor, Deadpool, Hulk, Wolverine, Iron Man, Captain America, Doctor Doom and Super-Skrull.

Mike Haggar is a former wrestler and mayor of Metro City. He often takes to the street to deal with Metro City’s gang problem. He’ll be joined by Capcom comrades Crimson Viper, Zero, Arthur, Nathan “Rad” Spencer, Wesker, Tron Bonne, Viewtiful Joe, Amaterasu, Dante, Ryu, Morrigan, Chris Redfield, Felicia, Trish and Chun-Li.

Get set for the ultimate 3-on-3 faceoff when Marvel vs. Capcom 3: Fate of Two Worlds hits PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on February 15, 2011.

I'm a fan of those variable characters that can transform a little bit in Marvel vs. Capcom 2. When we played the game a bit, I would annoy Chris as sunburned Sakura (Or... whatever her official transformation's name was).
