Potential New Characters that would make Marvel vs Capcom Infinite's roster more interesting
So Marvel vs. Capcom Infinite is about to come out and while positive impressions are floating around the gameplay, people still seem bummed about the lackluster base roster. Many have complained that there aren't enough new characters to make this roster stand out. Yes Jedah and Gamora are neat additions, but besides those and the initial roster reveals of Mega Man X and Captain Marvel, the new blood in Infinite is pretty petite. There's 5 new characters that are in the base roster. 6 if you count the revamped Thanos. It doesn't help that there's a season pass that has 6 DLC characters, 2 of which are completely new to the series (Sigma and Black Panther). Also some leakers have indicated that new characters like a female Monster Hunter might be in that season pass too. Many of the roster spots have been taken from veterans from UMvC3, but its character selections that not many fans were wishing to return. I'm happy Sir Arthur is back since he was one of my mains in MvC3, but I can see why people are upset he's in over favorites like Phoenix Wright, Amaterasu and Viewtiful Joe. Also where's She Hulk and MODOK? Still even if those desired veterans came back, we'd still get complaints about the lack of entirely new characters.
I decided to challenge myself in naming 30+ characters from both Marvel and Capcom that have never been playable in the series, but would make Infinite's base roster more interesting if they were there at launch. Heck, these characters might come in as DLC. Also I'm not listing any (or much) X Men characters because while I'd love the X Men to come back, they aren't in the MCU and this game is focusing the Marvel side on the MCU.
Full Disclosure: I haven't played all these games or read these comics, but did research on which characters I think would be good character selections.
