So, I was playing Team Tokyo Breakfast (zangief/mvc wolverine/thanos by eczangief) when I had the cpu down to just Sim who was about to get finished off. I hit him out of a move with a KD and, as he got up, called Thanos capture assist as I jumped forward w/ j.:hp:
Next thing I know, Dhalsim and MvC Wolverine are both suspended in the air Matrix-style. I don’t know what factors caused this to happen, but I am assuming it is related to Thanos capture. More specifically, it may be a Venom :hp: similarity. At any rate what happened could have been:
*i saw the Death Sphere continue on, so it didn’t actually hit Sim before being thrown–which makes this unique as compared to Venom’s :hp: throw
-Sim could have jumped into Wolvy’s throw
-Sim could have started up Yoga Strike and got grabbed out of the earliest possible frames (but this would mean that Sim is considered airborne before the DHC flash, which I doubt…but it’s Marvel)
-the game had a brainfart as it tried to determine whether Sim’s sprite belonged to the Death Sphere or Wolvy?
edit: I almost forgot that Sim warps back onto his feet after KD, iirc. Hmm…this may be Sim-specific.
Of course, I had to pause the game and record this so I captured the last 20-30secs of the match on my webcam. Don’t worry, we stay suspended the entire time, and regardless of which buttons or combination of buttons I press (other than manual restart), nothing changes. I’ll return with the link.
