Hope this is OK with the Mods…
Arguably one of the most wanted Marvel Characters desired in this game has finally made it in, OFFICIALLY. Just a quick backstory.
Johnny Blaze was a stunt rider for a traveling show when he discovered his stepfather had cancer. Wanting to save him, he sells his soul to who he believes is Satan (but is actually Mephisto). The cancer goes into remission, but Johnny’s stepfather ends up dying in a motorcycle accident the next day. Mephisto comes to claim Johnny’s soul, but is stopped by Johnny’s stepsister, who used a spell of love to block the process. Pissed off, Mephisto instead binds Johnny with a demonic force and uses him to capture the souls of the wicked, and bring them back to Hell.
Thus, Ghost Rider was born.
Here we can discuss Rider and all he brings to UMvC3. (And please, keep the Nicolas Cage jokes to a minimum. ;))
I’ll start off with his range, shown in great part here.
Like I said before he could be a nightmare for Zoners, since he only needs to be mid-screen to start a combo, and has plenty of OTG tools. Maximillian compared him to Omega Red from the earlier Vs. Games and I agree. GR can grab you from almost full-screen (I think he beats Super-Skrull in range), and then combo off of that throw. Plus he doesn’t have some stupid “Omega Strike” move to deal with, either.
But one-man discussions are boring. Anyone else wanna speak their peace?
