Yeah I liked all your choices especially Ghost Rider. He was one of my MUA faves.
 Im a little disappointed about the choices too.  Unfortunetly MvC2 spoiled us with the amount of characters to choose from. I hope they add some dlc somehow to boost the roster.
 I would have liked to have seen ;P Lizard, maybe the new Nova....

Cyclops
 
Silver Surfer got cut because they're couldn't integrate the Surfboard the way they wanted to.

i think this there is going to be a TON of DLC characters...almost like marvel ult alliance 2

I hardly feel any sadness with the line-up, I guess in this newest version there was a limited set of characters and Capcom felt that they should put in some of the characters with the highest fanbase rating, such as Thor and Deadpool. 
But with Capcom, they obviously are not steered by the fans, so they could careless who you want in there. 
 
Honestly I wished they had Chuck Norris in there if you ask me, I enjoyed watching him on the Mugen fights.

@Dex:  Let's hope!

@MTHarman: I had no idea they made a Chuck Norris for Mugen! 

@TheCrowbar: They didn't even have to have him on the board the whole time; they could've just have him fly in on it before  round begins, after he wins, and/or during combo moves and I'd have been pretty happy about it. 

@GenisVell: I especially loved how Ghost Rider could resurrect a fallen team-mate in MUA.

I prefer :
1. Iron Fist
2. Gambit
3. Captain Marvel
4. Psylocke
5. Ms. Marvel
6. Carnage
7. Ghost Rider
8. Werewolf By Night
9. Mysterio
10. Onslaught (Sub-Boss)

@darque26:
I'm really digging your 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, and 9th choices. Captain marvel would've been cool, too, and I think I would've went with Mar-Vell as my choice with an alternate color scheme for his son Genis.

I think about 4 of your characters could be replaced with someone better from Marvel, but whatever it would have taken them like another 6 months to finish the game if they added 10 more Marvel characters and 10 more Capcom characters.

#10 Posted by Buckshot (18685 posts) - - Show Bio

I think I would agree with Kang and Ghost Rider. Maaaayyyyyyyybbbbbbbbbbbbeeee Silver Surfer, but I feel like he'd be too stacked. And if you want Hobgoblin, just get Taskmaster in his horrible orange costume and pretend its him.

I agree with Thanos Juggy and Venom. Ghost Rider and SS should also be there.

@Buckshot:

Well when you have Galactus show up, Silver Surfer shouldn't be far behind him, especially if the Fantastic Four aren't going to show up.  
 
And Orange Taskmaster just isn't the same as Hobby. Close, but no cigar here.

      BLACKHEART!!!  Seriously, along with Mega Man on the Capcom side, can't believe they have forgotten to include him on the roster.  He was truly a BAD-A$$ character to play in MARVEL SUPERHEROES, with his demonic, hell-like powers and all.

Nobody is going to be completely satisfied with the roster..but if you weren't aware Capcom does allow their fans to vote and they do take their opinions into consideration when they do things like this.The roster isn't the best. I would have liked more characters.I would have liked some characters to have been taken out.I don't want MODOK,Galactus, or Dormammu in the game and most of all I don't want Sentinel but they added a few that I did want like X-23,She-Hulk,Taskmaster,Wesker,Dante,and Chris and I believe there is more coming with DLC so i'm not so mad about it.I have never been completely satisfied with the roster of any of their crossovers.I think MVC2 and CVS2 had the very best rosters but IMO there were a few characters they could have replaced and many that I would have just wanted in the game.It's still a very fun game and there's a new engine and better graphics etc. etc.I';m glad Capcom made this.They weren't doing fighting games for like 10 years..new ones anyway so i'm glad this is out.Maybe in a timely fashion we can eventually get MVC4,Street Fighter V,CVS3,maybe a new Power Stone,Darkstalkers or Rival Schools in the near future.I like where they are going.Street Fighter X Tekken and Tekken vs. Street Fighter is coming as well so.I'm happy with Capcom right now.

#21 Posted by Aronmorales (9305 posts) - - Show Bio

The only character that definitly should've been in is Ms. Marvel, 
but aside from her, I think I'd like: 
 
9. Venom 
8. Ghost Rider 
7. Black Panther 
6. Spider Woman. 
5. Sentry 
4. Blue Marvel 
3. Dare Devil 
2. Iron Fist 
1. Either Cyclops or Cambit, to make the X-Men fans happy. 
 
 
And while I'm at it... 
 
10. Frank West 
9. Strider Hiryu 
8. Jin 
7. Hayato 
6. M. Bison 
5. Demitrti 
4. Tessa 
3. Red Arramer 
2. Megaman (what ever variation the fans want) 
1. Either Pyron or Jedah (but if Pyron then I'd want Thanos for the Marvel side).

@Baddamdog:
I didn't add Psylocke because I felt like the X-Fans got a huge chunk of characters as it is. However, I'd have rather had Psylocke than Jean Grey.

Shame on Capcom for not placing Megaman. Unless there was a legal issue he'll be DLC and that is a rip-off. Its as if in MK vs DC we didn't have Superman or Batman on the DC side

I was satisfied enough with X-Men vs Street Fighter's roster.   Personal favorites: Cammy ( w/ either Rogue or Wolverine), Ryu ( w/ either Cyclops or Ken), Magneto ( w/ Juggernaut), or Akuma.

Doesn't change, that MegaMan is still an iconic Capcom figure, and a fan-favorite to many whose played the MvC series, myself included, loved that killer combo of Mega Man / Roll / Venom in MvC II!

I'm surprised that with the movies that came out Daredevil, Elektra, and Punisher weren't included in the original roster.  
 
The movies weren't great but people went to see them. Normal people that don't post online about comics, they could've seen "That one character" from the movie they watched, and decided to check the game out.

I applaud them thinking outside the box  with additions like Super Skrull, X-23, Dormammu and Taskmaster...but i still would have liked to see them be a little more creative. Dormammu was definitely a shocker for me especially without without Strange in the game so I kinda wish that spot went to someone else. My ideal additions (but probably not the most practical overall lol) would have been: 
 
Ghost Rider 
Hercules 
Iron Fist 
Cyclops 
.Jamie Madrox 
Captain Marvel  
Nova
Kang
Cable -great in the last game
Noh-Varr - I just think there are so many cool moves they could make with his unique and varied abilities
Silver Surfer -Galactus without Surfer = Fail but i understand about board issues
#32 Posted by ReVamp (22798 posts) - - Show Bio

Good Ideas 
Ms Marvel 
Psylocke 
Cyclops (Impressed he isn't in?) 
Iron Fist (With a DD bonus costume) 
Gambit 
Ghost Rider
Captain Marvel/Quaser (Preferbly the former) 
 
Personal preference:  
Natasha Romanoff 
Winter Soldier 
Batman

Megaman was a favorite of mine in MVC2 as well, my point was Capcom has made crossovers before and left him out so I would assume them leaving him out has a purpose.Capcom has many icons.They put the one (Ryu) in there that matters in fighting games.

Marvel characters that could have returned... 

Cyclops (I miss hearing "Optic sweep!")
Venom (he would look so awesome with the improved graphics)
Rogue (I mean, she can actually control her powers now, she could do anything)
Psylocke (she's cooler than ever with her katanas, why not bring her back) 
 
New characters that would be awesome....
 
Ms. Marvel  (mugen fan favorite, would be badass to turn into Binary)
Nova (he would be incredible and Richard Rider would have great intro and winning stance smack talk)
Hawkeye (Clint Barton is the man, and a super move where Mockingbird shows up to help out would be awesome) 
Ares (he would be awesome to use)  
Legion
(he could have so many cool moves and he would be a very interesting looking and acting character) 
Dazzler (I just love her and think her powers would look amazing and be a lot of fun to use, plus Dazzler would have cool and funny things to say)

A) Daredevil / Elektra: deadly, skilled, in fighting styles in their own right; but not for a Capcom Fighter; with flashy powers, chain combos; I could see both working well in a Mortal Kombat style fighter though. 
  
B) Punisher, maybe, if given a big enough gun ( ala Iron Man's "proton cannon", Cable in MvC2)

I don't know most of these picks would be foreign to video game fans especially Wasp and Electro for Wasp I honestly can't think of any attack she'll have that won't feel like a cheap mugen move. as for the rest they're resonable especially considering Dr Octopus is already confirmed. But I'm a little sick with all the Mega Man Mega Rage he was in two games and one he was just copied and pasted in so their is no real reason to cry for him. The VS. series did just fine without him and don't give me the "He gave Capcom a lot of money he should be entitled" crap because I can say that for Street Fighter 3 and Alpha series and I don't see one member in there. 
These games are catered to characters of the month or year, and as stated they're putting in characters they want big in the next year or that has been for awhile and counting those 2 wii shop games Megaman was in and no plans in the near future for one where he isn't based off the awful anime, I wouldn't call that too popular or bankable in the future. This is not a Capcom Hall of fame where the best of the best only deserve to be in because if it were up to many fans with this mind set it would be a sausage fest with 2 or 3 scantily clad choices (with Morrigan being ironically cut out because fan hate)

P.S. he wasn't even that good in the first one.

Dormammu kind of filled the role of Blackheart in this game, what with being able to use hellfire and meteor showers. And I think having Dormammu in the line up kind of makes having Ghost Rider redundant since they both fight using hellfire. 


That being said, you can't please everybody. There's always going to be someone who is unhappy with the roster one way or another.
