Seems I need to investigate this Cammy? If you think she is great, then I certainly feel a need to know her.

@B'Town: I love Cammy to know end, but that's simply because she's my first pop-culture crush and I just love how her play-style in Street Fighter is almost balletic and how she comes closest, out of all the characters (besides T. Hawk and M. Bison) to achieving flight with her moves...Like her moves seem more grounded in reality than others but then she suddenly shoots herself into the air and you feel like she can transcend what is considered possible...and I love it. And I love her strength and determination, in spite of the hardships that she's had to face. Every time she falls down, she gets right back up with a spin and her eyes still focused on her mission. But, really, I add my own personal meaning to her and I don't know if anyone else can see what I see in her. I mean, she exists in the world of Street Fighter, which isn't known for it's character development and story-lines. :)

I am going to check out a trade. :) I'm interested.

"... I add my own personal meaning to her and I don't know if anyone else can see what I see in her."

I have felt that way about Knockout, I'm sure I see/read much more into the character than most people, especially Simone's, Knockout who is now a far deeper powerful vulnerable & loving character than the superficial sexpot KO of the 90's Superboy era.

@B'Town: Unfortunately the only comic book series that features her is the Udon Street Fighter series, which only has a few moments of Cammy in it and the writing is kind of sub-par. 
 
And I understand what you mean about Knockout. She's now one of my favourite characters and it's for those very qualities that you mentioned. Her love runs so deeply.

Well, dang! :}

Let's hope another writer will expand her character in the future. Maybe like Simone did for Knockout, who is also a character who doesn't really have that many appearances, either. The appearances she does have in S6 are powerful in my view, thanks to Simone's writing. And, I'm glad you agree on her. I will look forward to your thoughts after reading her, BoP and S6 Vol 2. I'm hoping we will see more of her somewhere in the new DC universe. There can never be enough tall gorgeous villains!

@cosmo111687: He's like the Alfred of Buffy, in a lot of way. He's a Watcher, teacher to the Slayer.
