Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter: Sequel to my X-Men vs. SF Fan Fic!


Chapter 30: “Tame Canada! Tame Canada!”

U.S. Agent’s shield pushed Wolverine right out of the room Ken and Omega Red still resided in. The X-Man went about 10 feet back and landed on his rear. His six adamantium laced claws held the shield off from pushing deeper into his throat than it did. He pushed the shield away with his claws tossing it off to the side. The slit in his throat was about half an inch deep. If it wasn’t for his healing factor he would probably bleed to death. Even so it was quite a blow and he bleed out, slowly. He wasn’t able to talk just yet thanks to this injury. The Mutant snarled in anger with small bubbles of blood forming in his mouth.

Not giving him much time to recover, the U.S. Agent who looked exactly like Captain America except for the fact that his suit was gray instead of blue ran up to Wolverine and gave him a strong jab to the face!

Normally it would hurt someone’s fist more than it would harm Wolverine punching him like this, thanks to his metallic skeleton. The U.S. Agent however was given superhuman strength thanks to a mutagenic augmentation process, making him physically stronger than Captain America himself! The devastating punch was even enough for Logan to feel it in his skull and it made his teeth rattle to boot!

Laying on his back the now muted Mutant rose up to perform his Berserker Barrage! He still wasn’t able to talk but a trail of small blood bubbles escaped from his mouth while he charged at the West Coast Avenger. So he didn’t yell out the name of the move he performed the way he usually does this time.

The former Captain America dodged each one of these claw slashes with several timely back flips! The split second he saw an opening between the space of Wolverine’s swinging arms U.S. Agent rammed his foot into his chest! Since this was the first part of his Double Kick maneuver, with the same right leg he quickly followed up with a kick to Logan’s stomach!

A bit winded after these strikes since it was already tough for the Canadian hero to breath given his slashed throat, Wolverine wanted to separate himself from his opponent right now. So he executed his High Kick Aerial Launcher. Forcing his claws halfway into the floor and positioning himself upside down he kicked U.S. Agent in the chin and sent him soaring away! Wolverine didn’t follow up with an Aerial Rave because he just wanted to distance himself from the Dark Rider. And that may have been a huge mistake on his part.

U.S. Agent back flipped high in the air and landed on his feet. White Ki surrounded him as he rushed Logan with his Charging Star Move! As you may recall U.S. Agent did not have his shield in hand so he came at his opponent solely with his crossed arms! Unlike Cap, the red white and gray soldier was not one to yell out the names of moves while he performed them so he remained as silent as Logan. The charging move knocked Wolverine square in the chest and he felt like he’d just been hit by a speeding bus! Blood started to gush out of his mouth instantly! U.S. Agent didn’t let him get too far away after the impact so he grabbed his right hand immediately after striking him. Even more white Ki encircled around the Agent who nabbed the Mutant with his Hyper Stars & Stripes Super Art! He still had no shield in hand as he crossed his arms and caught the super-hero with three Shoryuken styled uppercut blows! The last time his rising crossed forearms struck the X-Men he connected eight times and set Wolverine ablaze with his white aura! Down came tumbling Logan!

Even after these two attacks the U.S. Agent still wasn’t letting up! He picked up the motionless Wolverine of the floor with one hand and with his throw move slammed him back down hard! So hard in fact that Wolverine’s spine not only cracked the metallic floor but he bounced and went five feet back!

Wolverine slowly started to rise. U.S. Agent took this opportunity to go pick up his shield. He removed the blood stain from it caused by Logan’s neck wound with a quick jerk. This left a straight red line on the floor.

The rather quiet man finally spoke.

“So this is the great Wolverine? So not impressed. What can you expect from a guy that was trained on a Canadian team. Everyone knows that Canada isn’t even a real country!”

Poking fun at his home country is a good way to get Wolverine all riled up. He snarled while still trying to get back on his feet.

“How dare you say I’m not the real Captain America? I WAS THE GREATEST CAPTAIN AMERICA THAT EVER LIVED! Boo hoo, the public couldn’t take it because I murdered a few people. A few people WHO KILLED MY FREAKING PARENTS! What did they think that other Captain America was doing World War II? Giving Nazis time outs? He’s killed ten times more people than I have and they want to bitch about me going after a few dorks called the Watchdogs. Give me a break!”

“So those good for nothing pencil pushers at Washington made me the U.S. Agent and eventually demoted my ass to the West Coast Avengers. A team of misfits, slackers and losers! You know, just like you X-Men freaks!”

Back on his feet, the so called X-Men freak’s neck healed just enough for him to respond.

“I’ve worked with you in the past, U.S. Agent. You’ve always been a jerk but you were also one of the good guys. I’m gonna assume that Shadowloo, Apocalypse or both brainwashed you into joinin’ the other side. Probably honed in on your ever lovin’ bitter streak and multiplied it a thousand fold. So I’m gonna let a lot of your dumb ass comments slide for now.”

“Wrong Wolveroach! Apocalypse and Shadowloo offered me the chance to become the real Captain America once again! No more of that sissy Steve and his due process BS. You break the law under Apocalypse’s rule and I’m judge, jury and executioner! Got that Mr. Mutato Head?”

“Wait, you actually thought that you ever had a chance of permanently takin’ Captain America’s place?” At this point his throat had finished healing up so Wolverine was able to raise his voice. “YOUR NAME IS JOHN WALKER! YOU WERE NAMED AFTER A BOTTLE OF LIQUOR! YOU DIDN’T STAND A CHANCE!”

“YOU BASTARD!” U.S Agent now enraged came at Wolverine with his shield in hand. “DRILL CLAW!” Going right towards him while spinning much like Vega’s Psycho Crusher move, his spinning claws came at the U.S. Agent! The adamantium claws brushed up against the vibranium shield and sent sparks while Wolverine spun around. Quickly spreading his arms during the last spin his claws caught the ends of shield, spun once clockwise and disarmed John Walker yet again! With his Double Claw, perhaps his revenge for the Double Kick he received earlier he slashed the Dark Rider twice, yelling “HA,” each time for both hits! The red slashes he left on the West Coast Avenger’s chest were enough to set his enemy off balance. Leaving him open for a “TORNADO CLAW,” uppercut strike!

Now with nine red claw marks on his chest U.S. Agent was brought down to one knee. Leaving him wide open for Wolverine’s Weapon X Super Art! His vicious claws moved around his opponent for twelve strikes! When he jumped up in the air for the last blow a huge ‘X’ made from U.S. Agent’s blood appeared in the air! The U.S. Agent went down for the count and lost against the man who is the best he is at what he does!

“Held back as much as I could, Johnny boy. None of your wounds are fatal. With your endurance being stronger than most you should heal up fine. Once this is all over S.H.I.E.L.D. will patch you up nice.” Wolverine spoke with his back turned away from his fallen adversary.

“Wolverine… Logan… Sorry. My mind… was being controlled like you said. Looks like your last attack was the shock my system needed to snap out of it.” U.S. Agent spoke with his back to the floor while his body was covered with multiple claw slashes.

“No worries. Gettin’ brainwashed now and then is all part of the super-hero gig. Even happened to Steve a few times.” “You mean the real Capain America…” “Well, one of the Caps anyway.” Wolverine’s words put a smile on John Walker’s face.

“The things I said back there… I don’t think I’m as great as the real Captain America. That’s a tough legend to live up too. And, I don’t really hate Canada. Michael J. Fox is a fine actor.”

“Hah! You got jokes. When this is all over the next bottle of Johnny Walker Black Label is on me!” Wolverine, grinning yet still never turning to face U.S. Agent left him with these words as he ran to help Ken Masters against Omega Red.

U.S. Agent smiled, sat up and started to rip off pieces of his outfit and tied them around his multiple wounds.

Next Up: There were a ton of personal things in my life that got in the way of me updating this as soon as I wanted too, which unfortunately always seems to be the case with me. There are a bunch of other things I put off during that time too so I have to catch up on those things before I come back here for the next entry. So I will try my best to get the next chapter, Omega Red and Ken up in about a month from now. Worst case scenario, I have a week in October off from work but I really want to try to get the next entry up during September. Radioactive Bytes will follow shortly after the next chapter. On the plus side, the two chapters after that require next to little or no research on my part so if all goes everything will be set for the final stage of this story! The final stage of course involves a TON of fights so that will take a while so not out of the woods yet but getting there slowly yet surely. Thanks for reading and see you in thirty for Omega Red vs. Ken!


Chapter 31: “Super Fighting Russian! OMEGA MAN!”

The tall muscular blonde man with blood red eyes to match his armored outfit and pearly white flesh stood with with his arms folded in the control deck of Cape Citadel. Arkady Rossovich, who goes by the name Omega Red had his back turned away from his opponent. His body was glowing with red energy. Ken remained on the floor with his mouth wide open and his eyes rolled up into his skull.

Omega Red looked out into the night sky outside of the large windows this room contained that overlooked various computer panels as you’d expect to see from a control tower of a military base. The reddish aura around his boy soon dissipated.

“Excellent It appears my Death Spores have finished you off while I drained your life force. Fret not, after the Weapon X defeats U.S. Agent I will use this power to destroy him. You’re death will not be in vain young whelp!”

“The name’s Ken Masters and the rumors of my death have been greatly exaggerated!”

The Russian super soldier was shocked that Ken was still alive! Quickly he turned around and saw Ken rising to his feet!

Once he stood on his feet he put one palm horizontally across his chest and put another palm stretched out and pointing vertically while bending his knees (the same pose he assumed in Street Fighter II The Animated movie during his fight with the leader of Shadowloo). He closed his eyes and took a few deep breaths. Soon a red force field bubble surrounded his entire body! The bubble seemed to diminish as it shrunk to surround his Ken giving him a red glow for a while, until it was so close to his skin even the glow vanished!

“IMPOSSIBLE THE LIFE FORCE I DRAINED WAS ENOUGH TO KILL A NORMAL MAN! I SHALL UNLEASH MY DEATH SPORES ONCE AGAIN!” Clenching his fists and gritting his teeth, Arkady did just that. Since these spores are of course invisible to the naked eye the only indication that they were being unleashed was Omega Red’s trembling movement.

“Heh. Guess I just have more life force than a normal man. Were you expecting S.H.I.E.L.D. to send Wolverine with some loser like Forbush Man?”

“MY DEATH SPORES! THEY ARE NOT WORKING! INCONCEIVABLE!” The angrier Omega Red became the thicker his already thick Russian accent seemed to sound.

“Yeah, me and Ryu picked up a new force field trick recently. I guess you can say it was inspired by Magneto (as seen in the previous X-Men vs. Street Fighter fan fic). Works a little better with Ryu by my side, but I have enough Ki to form a protective layer around myself. At least long enough to kick your butt to Russia and back!” Ken assumed his regular fighting stance with his usual cocky grin, motioning for Omega Red to come hither with the two fingers that were in front of his face!

“OMEGA STRIKE!” Inserting his twin coils into the floor by punching holes into it, he used their extendable properties to launch himself feet first straigth towards Ken’s chest! The martial artist blocked this move by intercepting Omega’s feet with his left elbow joined with his left knee. Wrapping his right leg around the Wolverine villain’s legs he slammed them down causing Omega Red to stand off balance. From here the man with the red gi struck his red armored foe with his Inazuma Kakato Wari maneuver. “HIYA,” he expressed while sending a right kick to Omega Red’s head followed quickly by a right to his chest! A quick punch to his eye caused Arkady to bleed a little!

Omega’s long coils still intserted into the floor about twelve feet away retracted until they were only about a foot long by his arms. “HUH,” grunted the Horseman of Pestilence performing his Crouching High Punch maneuver. Kneeling down his foot long Carbonadium tentacles spun while holding his arms up. It looked almost like a cowboy spinning his twin guns around. The coils struck the Anstatsuken practitioner’s shoulders a few times bringing him down to his knees.

With a a Carbonadium Coil move Omega wrapped a tentacle around Ken, holding his arms down. “DEATH FACTOR!” He began siphoning Ken’s energy, and at this close range it was hard for Ken’s force field to resist him! Ryu’s best friend could also see the blood that was spilling from Omega’s eye retread to the point where it looked good as new. It was obvious that Omega Red was using Ken’s own life force to heal his wounds!

Carbonadium’s a hard metallic substance but nowhere near as strong as Adamantium so our hero was able to break free! Extending his arms enough to break the hold he quickly fired of his famous “HADOUKEN!” The blast made Apocalypse’s minion take a few steps back.

Taking a small hop for an Aerial Alternate Kick move Ken was able to strike Omega once in the face! From here Omega performed his throw move. With his bare hands he grabbed Ken who was still in the air by his obliques and arched his back like he was doing a German Suplex. Only difference was instead of slamming Ken to the ground he threw him far away! So far away in fact that Ken went crashing right through the window that the Russian was staring out of earlier!

When the villain turned around he saw Ken’s forearm reaching out across one of the control panels! He was able to grab onto something before falling to his death!

Hoisting himself up he stood on top of the various computer keyboards. He had a cut on his left cheek and a few bloody scrapes across his arms and chest, thanks to the broken window. He pulled a piece of glass from his right shoulder as he spoke seeming quite cheerful considering.

“Heh. Nice move. I’ll have to remember that one. My force field protected me from some of the glass but all of it. Guess you drained just enough of it. Oh and there’s another move of yours I’d like to learn. Could use your Death Factor to heal up some of these cuts. Tetanus shots aren’t free you know!”

“Hmph. Come closer and I will give you another demonstration.”

“Not today pal!” Forming a ball of Ki about the size of a soft ball with his right hand alone he tossed the small projectile up to the cieling directly towards the light panel that was right above Omega Red! Since they were not the only lights in the room the area was not completely darkened. Split seconds later Ken leaped up in the air. When Omega Red looked up he was blinded by the flash of the exploding light, so even though he sent his coils to grab Ken in the air, he saw three blurry images of him so he missed entirely! Ken came raining down with a powerful right punch to Omega Red’s face that sent his teeth shattering! This was followed by four more rapid punches to his face! Next he executed a great combo that involved more punches and kicks all around Omega Red’s body! Even though most of Red’s body houses really strong armor the blows were eventually taking their toll! The Russian blocked none of the American’s punches and while the armor helped lessen some of it his arms and face were fully exposed!

The Horseman finally had enough and with his standing Medium Kick, he turned around until his chest faced the floor and sent the bottom of his foot to Ken’s face! Ken staggered away being struck with the metallic boot!

Next Omega Red assaulted him with vicious whip slashes of his Carbonadium coils! Even when Ken was able to block the tentacles they would just wrap around his forearms and still strike his chest leaving black and blue slashes instantly!

After 10 of these blows Ken once again jumped up in the air to either punch or kick his foe in the face. We’ll never know which move he was going for because Omega Red’s tentacles went at an angle and grabbed him midair! “ENERGY DRAIN!”

This was a little different from his Death Factor. Streams of orange flames seemed to exit Ken’s body and enter Omega Red’s! The pony tailed fighter yelled like a bear caught in a trap! He was being drained of so much energy his skin began to crawl back as if he was losing weight!

Soon he stopped struggling and remained motionless. After absorbing all of the flames he could Omega tossed him so he slammed to the right of the door Ken originally entered. He fell onto the green metallic floor with his eyes closed, seemingly down for the count.

“No wonder you were able to resist me for so long, Ken Masters. Your life force is tied directly to you Ki, as is the case with many Martial Artists. Unfortunately for you, my Energy Drain can absorb Ki as well!”

“I commend you for lasting as long as you have Ken Masters. But now I will use your very own Ki to rip you to shreds!”


With this mighty Super Art his coils extended twenty feet a piece and swung wildly across the room! Not only that but streams of orange flames surrounded the coils since Omega Red was using Ken’s very own Ki against him! With these Carbonadium laced tentacles swinging all about and Ken still on the floor it looked like Ken was done for.

Looks have never been more deceiving with Ken back on his feet in a few seconds and with the exception of the few cuts and bruises he received earlier he looked good as new! Even the weight he seemed to have lost was back! He front flipped over the first flaming coil in his way, arched backward to escape another part of that coil, hopped, back flipped and side stepped every single coil attack! Even Spider-Man who is used to dodging Doctor Octopus’ tentacles would be amazed at Ken’s reflexes and agility!

Omega Red was completely oblivious to Ken’s stealthy dodging. Assuming he had already won the fight he was just laughing to himself like a maniac. “HA HA HA THE STREET FIGHTER IS DONE FOR HA HA HA!”

Ken came rolling up to him in a ball as if he just performed a roll cancel! Omega looked at him, still moving his coils about and said “Huh?”


His hurricane kick moved at a 2:00 o’clock angle and struck Omega Red in the face three times knocking him away! The stunned villain landed on his backside!


“You were right about my Ki being tied to my life force. Thing about Ki is, I’m able to absorb it from Mother Nature itself. So even if you are able to drain all of the Ki I have I can still gather more. This might not work in every environment, but here we are in a military base located in the Everglades of Florida. There’s an abundance of Ki for me to draw upon!”

Suddenly Omega Red was able to see exactly what Ken was talking about. He saw hundreds of swirls of white dots enter Ken’s body. These small white orbs of evergy looked almost like snow, only every flake was flowing into Ken instead of hitting the ground. Standing there smiling with clenched fists by his sides, Omega could see Ken’s right fist look like it was set on fire!

Still sitting on the floor this was one of the very few times Arkady felt fear in his heart! He started to back away as he yelled, “NO! STAY AWAY FROM ME! YOU’RE SOME KIND OF MONSTER!”

“You calling me a monster. Heh, talk about irony! ITAZE! SHORYU REPPA!”

With his Rising Uppercut styled Super Art, Ken struck Omega Red with three consecutive Shoryuken styled uppercuts with his fist connecting with Omega Red’s body a total of ten times! Omega Red looked like a burn victim while he screamed in agony with his body in flames! He went flying out of the window Ken was tossed out of earlier! When he finally hit the ground several stories below there was a massive glow of white light that even reached the broken windows of the room Ken resided in! Ken won the fight!

Moments later, the door to the room slid open as Wolverine entered. “KEN! ARE YOU… Where’s Omega Red?”

“I took care of him.”

Ken was standing on the computer panel once more since that’s where he landed after his Shoryu Reppa. He didn’t seem thrilled about his victory as he saw Omega on the ground remaining still.

“I give you this big speech about killing Matsu’o, and here I…”

Wolverine got up on the same panel next to Ken to look down at the fallen foe. "I wouldn’t worry Omega Red. He’s much more resilient than you think.

Just then Ken saw Omega Red move his head slightly, before coming to a full rest once again.

Now somewhat pleased that he did not commit murder, Ken jumped down to the floor with the X-Man doing the same.

“I’m impressed Ken. First Sabretooth (during X-Men vs. Street Fighter) and now Omega Red. That’s two of my enemies you’ve beaten. Gonna have ta stop callin’ you rookie!” Ken joked, “Yeah, well if you want you can take down some of my enemies too. The Masters Foundation always has rival corporations, lawyers and tax collectors who always want a piece of…” “Wait a second.”

Logan sniffed the air and popped his Adamantium claws. “So he is alive!”

Wolverine turned to face the window but soon he was electrocuted and pinned to the ground just like Ken with light purple energy!

When they managed to look outside they saw Magneto floating in his magnetic force field! That’s not all! He freed four giant nuclear missiles from their silos and they were floating along beside him! Omega Red’s resting body was also floating in another magnetic bubble!

“HA HA HA HA! Well done, Wolverine and Ken! Why don’t you gather the rest of your little friends and join me and Apocalypse on my newly constructed Asteroid M!”

“MAGNETO! ONE OF THESE DAYS I’M GONNA GUT YOU,” screamed the Canadian Mutant who was still pinned to the ground. “Promises promises! HA HA HA HA HA!” Laughing away Magneto floated up into the sky with Omega Red and the missiles in tow.

NEXT UP: ACK sorry about the long delay, what can I say I suck lol! Next time Marvel vs. Capcom 2’s Cable pays us a visit with the rest of the '90s X-Force squad! More Magneto, Exodus and a lot more Dark Riders! Radioactive Bytes for the last few chapters will come in about a week. Fun times ahead!


Radioactive Bytes: This will cover chapters 29 - 30. Starting with chapter 29.

A quick note about Nick Fury with regards to his appearances in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3. I may have touched on this before, but that game is using the Ultimate version of Nick Fury. The one that is based on Samuel Jackson who is in turn playing Nick Fury in the movies. He shows up in at least 1 MvC3 ending (don’t own the console version of UMvC3 yet, holding out for the PS Vita version) and he shows up as a Heroes card too. Pretty sure this is because the game is going with the versions of the characters most commonly known to the public and with the live action movies and including the more recent Marvel cartoons that would be this version of Nick Fury.

It’s funny to note that Capcom has now used both versions of Nick Fury. The Caucasian one or 616 Nick Fury appears in Capcom’s old Punisher game. Of course there is nothing to suggest that that old Punisher game is in the same world as MvC3 / UMvC3 so it doesn’t have to be viewed as a contradiction really.

Anyway back when I started writing this fic in 2006 I obviously had no idea Capcom was going to use the Ultimate version of Nick Fury all of these years later, so for me I’m still using the 616 version of Nick Fury. The way I am and I try to tie in as many things as possible, if I started writing this fic today I would definitely use the Ultimate version of Nick Fury. I actually like both versions of Nick for different reasons so I don’t have a preference really. This fic is being as if it was occurring in a world that’s as close to 616 as possible so that for me means 616 Nick.

To point out, this is a fan fic and you can probably just imagine any version of Nick Fury you want to. I don’t recall if I went into details describing him, but even if I explained his hair you can probably just imagine it’s like the Nick Fury from the Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon who is African American and has the same hair and that he just didn’t go bald yet or something lol!

Both versions of Nick Fury have different speech mannerisms. The ones I’ve already used for Nick are based on the 616 version so I’ll be sticking with that. I guess if you imagine Ultimate Nick being alive as long as he has it’s totally possible he’d speak that way too.

Oh and 616 Nick Fury smokes a big cigar and I’ve already had the Nick in this story do that. Ultimate Nick Fury was created during Marvel’s stupid “characters are not allowed to smoke” rule so he doesn’t smoke anything. I hadn’t really planned on having Nick Fury smoke again anyway so beyond this point it’s not an issue I guess. Though yeah, this fic is based on comics from the '90s and characters smoked a lot back then.

So regarding Wolverine’s comment about Nick Fury serving in World War 2, both versions of Nick Fury have so it still works. I’m not too sure about the movie version of Nick Fury since he did not show up during the World War 2 segment of Captain America’s movie, so if that really is the variant of Nick Fury MvC3 / UMvC3 is using then it’s possible that he didn’t serve in WW2. But EH… Moving along…

I had the plan to have The Hand long before their background appearances in MvC3 and UMvC3, no really ROFL! As you might be able to tell most of chapter 29 is based on Cammy’s ending from X-Men vs. Street Fighter. Matsu’o Tsurayaba’s appearance was difficult for me to include during the X-Men vs. Street Fighter fic. I just couldn’t wrap my brain around it so this was my way of including him and the Hand ninjas. Him mentioning Killer Bee is a shout out to that ending. I have to say it’s really awesome that The Hand appears in MvC3 and UMvC3 though! Makes me feel all current and stuff. :slight_smile:

A couple of notes on The Hand ninjas. The ones that are standing on the ceiling is a Naruto reference. In that anime and manga ninjas are able to do this by concentrating their Ki / Shakra into their feet. So yeah having fun and wanted a more logical way to do it so spiked heels and there you go. I bet the weight would eventually give out and they would fall in reality, but yeah having a bit of fun.

Ken’s four green amphibian comment and later ‘The Foot’ comment are obvious references to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Fun fact, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles comic was partially influenced by Frank Miller’s run on Daredevil. So The Foot are partially based on The Hand.

Oh and I think the ninja turtles are awesome but they probably don’t exist in this universe and Ken is just bringing them up like most of us would in conversation. Of course if you want them to actually exist in this story I have no problem with that. They’ll NEVER show up though. They could just elude Apocalypse’s capture because they work in secrecy and there you go! Sure could’ve used you guys when Shuma-Gorath was tearing stuff up though Raphael. JUST SAYIN’! :stuck_out_tongue:

Wolverine tearing into the last Hand ninja is similar to what he did to Malcolm Colcord, AKA The Director. After he endured the Weapon X project that gave him Adamantium, Wolverine went berserk but for some reason he especially went ape crazy on the last soldier there named Malcolm Colcord, tearing him to shreds. Him doing that to that last Hand ninja is my little nod to that. Malcolm later becomes The Director and becomes one of Wolverine’s villains. At this point in time, The Director has not appeared before Wolverine. Of course if he ever does or doesn’t probably doesn’t matter for the Capcom games I suppose. More info on The Director -,_Malcolm

More on Matsu’o Tsurayaba. Pretty much every time I’ve seen the guy, especially in the '90s he was smoking so that’s why he’s doing it here. Regarding his clothes, I’ve only ever seen him wearing a black suit and black clothes with just a white shirt, black tie too. In his X-Men vs. Street Figther ending appearance he is wearing a green trench coat, brown slacks and a red tie. I don’t know if Capcom referenced some comic where he was wearing those colors or if they just wanted to add a bit of color themselves to the scene. Or maybe they were having fun because A LOT of Marvel villains wear green (Doctor Doom, Doctor Octopus, Green Goblin, Loki, Kang, etc., etc., etc.) but whatever the reason I had him retain the same color scheme here.

As for when he appears, in the comics Matsu’o had one of Wolverine’s lovers Mariko killed and Wolverine takes vengeance on Matsu’o by cutting off a piece of his body every year. Matsu’o’s appearance in this story is way before all of that. Since Wolverine in the Capcom games never seems to go past a guy who pines for Jean Grey and doesn’t have her relationship-wise anything regarding if Mariko’s death will happen in this world probably doesn’t matter. Given the Shadowland UMvC3 background, I assume Matsu’o’s no longer leading The Hand and currently Daredevil is and he’s going through his Shadowland tale. Even without all of that Matsu’o hasn’t lead The Hand for quite some time.

If you want a lot more info on Matsu’o’s role with Psylocke’s current incarnation and Mariko’s death but don’t want to hunt down a bunch of old comics this recent Psylocke TPB covers most of it. It’s well written and drawn too.

Regarding Matsu’o’s sword fighting style and Katana, I’m a big Sengoku Basara fan so that whole thing about the purple streaks on the floor is largely influenced by that game’s Mitsunari Ishida. The character and his sword style are also based on Vergil of the Devil May Cry series, who is now a playable character in UMvC3 so you can look at it that way too if you want. Neither leave purple streaks on the floor but there are purple lines that are left in the air that can also cut you when they perform a slice, so that’s my nod to that.

I ALMOST had Matsu’o use the same exact sword Mitsunari Ishida uses but ultimately I decided against that for a few reasons. One was for all I know Capcom could later make a game where that sword is broken to pieces or something leaving me out in the cold. Also it does seem that the versus series seems to honor the Onimusha series more, and Onimusha and Sengoku Basara contradict the crap out of each other. Not only does Onimusha’s Soki show up in TvC but he also shows up as a card in UMvC3. So it’s fairly safe to say that if the versus games are going for a ‘one world for Capcom games theory’ it honors Onimusha more than Sengoku Basara.

…But none of that stops me from referencing SB ROFL!The Mitsunari Ishida of Onimusha Dawn of Dreams is cool but not as cool as the one from Sengoku Basara Samurai Heroes! And yes they are very different.

I did hear one explanation why there were no Sengoku Basara characters in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. Because most of the characters are based on real people and they are not real Capcom characters. It would be like putting Abraham Lincoln in the game or something. I dunno, maybe an SB character alongside Marvel’s INSANE interpretation of Leonardo Da Vinci from their current S.H.I.E.L.D. comic would be something heh!

Off hand I’d say that the Onimusha games probably fit in better with the Marvel universe, because the Sengoku Basara games are FREAKING CRAZY! Well it might not matter anyway because I doubt that Marvel has really touched the Warring States Period of Japan (I could be wrong) and this story will not go that far into the past, so you can imagine either version of the past happening here or a mix of the two (particularly since Oda Nobunaga is the same guy in both worlds). The closest thing I can recall to Marvel touching that stuff was a story where Wolverine fought resurrected zombies of the Shinsengumi, but the Shinsengumi came years after the Waring States period. The Shinsengumi are probably most famous to most of us because of the Rurouni Kenshin manga and anime, where my avatar of Sagara Sanosuke comes from. Yes now I’m making a nod to my avatar LMAO!

Matsu’o and Wolverine fighting without having their swords touching is true, most sword masters avoid having their blades come into contact. This is best seen during the fights that take place in the Samurai Champloo anime since they tried to honor actual sword fights. Nothing against sword clashing as it plays a pretty big part in the Sengoku Basara anime and games, but every now and then I feel I have to inject some bits of realism into all of this Ki, Mutants and zany stuff. That might be why Samurai Champloo did that too since that took a lot of liberties depicting Japan’s past.

Ah well Sengoku Basara was 100s of years ago anyway, sword fighters have gotten better… ^_^;

On to chapter 30!

The U.S. Agent fight was inspired by MvC3 but probably not in ways you might think.

Captain America in MvC3 can’t drop his shield and fight without it ever like he could in previous Capcom games. Not really a Captain America player so this is not something that bothers me. Still since U.S. Agent and MSH vs. SF’s Captain America can fight without his shield this is something I wanted to highlight, so I could at least differentiate U.S. Agent and Captain America’s fighting styles. Because in MSH vs. SF U.S. Agent and Captain America are EXACTLY THE SAME minus the outfit. So I needed something to separate them. Also something for MvC3 players to see since he can’t drop his shield anymore (I haven’t played UMvC3 yet outside of cons and gaming events and haven’t used Cap there but I’m fairly certain he still can’t drop his shield).

U.S. Agent not shouting out the names of moves the way Cap does was another thing I used to separate them. In the game they have the same exact voice, so I figure U.S. Agent in reality has a different voice so whatever he’d be screaming it would be in a voice that you haven’t heard in the games really. Silencing Wolverine too was a nod to those MvC3 intro movies where no one speaks or says the name of moves. Love anime and manga so I don’t have a problem with people yelling out the names of moves while they perform them but it was nice to switch it up for once. Wolverine starts yelling out the names of his moves at the very end to kind of show that things are going back to normal. Ain’t that right Cyclops? “JESUS CHRIST!” :stuck_out_tongue:

Regarding when U.S. Agent appears in this story - If you start to line up these characters as best as you can then U.S. Agent fits best during the time he was with the West Coast Avengers. For a time I wanted to advance him further because this character to me works best when he is as bitter as possible LOL, but the more I thought about it and read old comics I figured he was already bitter during his stint on West Coast Avengers. So no real need for me to tweak his timeline.

Speaking of that time, he actually did refer to his West Coast Avengers team mates as slackers, misfits, losers and other negative names. This probably shouldn’t bother anyone here, but if you are a fan of Hawkeye who is in UMvC3, well he was a West Coast Avengers member back then so this means him too oooh… Note that this was quite some time ago and with Hawkeye’s time with the Thunderbolts, him dying and coming back and all that well Hawkeye is no longer the goofball he used to be in the comics. He’s matured a lot in the last few years. It seems like UMvC3 and the upcoming live action Avengers movie are going with this more mature version.

About U.S. Agent’s Canada rants. First and foremost if there are any Canadians out there reading this I’d like to thank you for not sending me any death threats ha ha! It’s largely a nod to the fact that U.S. Agent later joins the Canadian super hero team Alpha Flight. If you think his comments here were bad you should check out some of the stuff he says in those comics oooh… It’s all in good fun though.

Oh and I love Udon comics and my favorite band is Metric so I have nothing against Canada. I even visited once! Well my plane stopped there for four hours while I was on my way to Japan but whatever. It counts! Go Michael J. Fox!

A fun note is that later U.S. Agent joins a team called S.T.A.R.S., but it’s obviously not the same exact team of S.T.A.R.S. from the Resident Evil games. Funny coincidence though! The Marvel S.T.A.R.S. stands for Superhuman Tactical Activities Response Squad. The one from the Resident Evil games stands for Special Tactics And Rescue Service. It would be funny if this world there were one in the same. Only most of the S.T.A.R.S. from Resident Evil were killed off oooh… A good thing they shipped U.S. Agent off to Canada! :stuck_out_tongue:

Lastly chapter 31 -

Lots of exaggerating on my part because Omega Red’s another guy that would probably destroy a lot of Street Figthers, so I did whatever I could to give Ken an edge. I mean c’mon Ken has gotten the shaft and wasn’t included in MvC3 or UMvC3 man he needs all the Marvel universe props he can get! Obviously a lot of the stuff came from SF2 The Animated Movie (particularly that stance he assumed when he started chanting in the movie) and SF2V with the white dots and all.

About when Omega Red appears in this story. It happens after his appearance in the Soul Skinner story that was featured in X-Men #17 - 19. During X-Men vs. Street Fighter I have already used a lot of characters from that story, particularly Darkstar, Alexi Garnoff and Colonel Vazhin (who Apocalypse has imprisoned now in this story). Capcom sort of references this story with Colossus running into Omega Red in Russia in a few endings so it seems relevant (but the actual Soul Skinner’s existence isn’t I guess). Without giving too much away, at best I can say that a version of this story happens in this world but it’s not exactly the same. This will kind of make sense once this fic finishes so bear with me for a while. If you wish to read up on what happens in those comics -

Regarding Ken’s reference to Forbush Man - He’s kind of a long running joke in Marvel comics. Stan Lee would often have the characters make fun of someone called Irving Forbush, and eventually Forbush Man became a character. He doesn’t really exist in 616 as he’s been given his own universe to play in. But I figure Ken probably knows about him thanks to the comics that actually exist in the Marvel comics 616 universe (I talked about that stuff a lot more when I was discussing Norimaro). Or maybe Forbush Man can exist in this world since we already have Dan and Norimaro for laughs I guess ha ha! More on Forbush Man -

Magneto’s “HA HA HA HA HA” laugh is strongly influenced by the X-Men arcade game, that I can now play on my PS3 and even my cellphone! I really had to resist the urge to have Magneto say “WELCOME TO DIE!”

And that wraps up my contributions for this fic for this year. Be back in 2012, hopefully by February. Cable and X-Force vs. Magneto, Exodus and a lot more Dark Riders coming next! Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays! See you next year!


Chapter 32: “The Nutty Professor Program!”

Two weeks before the events of this story.

Hovering above the planet Earth in the depths of space, cloaked in such a way that it was undetectable to neighboring satellites was the newly constructed
Asteroid M. However, this new station was quite different from the previous version. In essence there were pieces of meteor rocks encircling a gigantic space station with a large communication tower to it’s extreme right. These were bits of pieces of Asteroid M that remained after it was destroyed (X-Men 1-3 and Capcom’s X-Men Children of the Atom) along with Avalon being part of it’s center.

Avalon was really the space station Graymalkin that Magneto took over while Cable was lost in the time stream after the events of X-Ecutioner’s Song. Avalon was also destroyed (after the events of Capcom’s X-Men Mutant Apocalypse) so this new base consisted of remnants of the two stations.

Teleporting into Graymalkin’s, or better put the newly formed Asteroid M’s central core was Cable and his team X-Force. And along for the ride were members Cannonball, Boomer, Feral, Warpath, Rictor, Shatterstar, Siryn and Sunspot.

The central core was composed of several rectangular pillars that stretched up to the ceiling with foreign and alien technological computer components all throughout.

“Graymalkin doesn’t seem the same as it used 'ta be,” pondered Cannonball with his usual southern accent. "That is correct, Sam. Magneto took over the base while I was lost in the time stream and dubbed it ‘Avalon,’ a haven were Mutants, criminal or otherwise could live as an independent nation.

“The United Nations attempted to attack the base, and Magneto retaliated by shutting down the electomagnetic field of the entire planet. Planes fell out of the sky, coma patients were lost, millions died that day. The X-Men Cyclops, Wolverine, Psylocke, Gambit and Beast teleported into the base, defeated Magneto and after the confrontation the base was destroyed,” recounted Cable.

“When I returned to this time I thought Graymalkin and The Professor were lost to me, but The Prof managed to send me a distress signal earlier today. It seems like Magneto was able to put Graymalkin back together and combined it with parts of Asteroid M so now it resembles more of a mesh of the two bases.”

The team followed Cable’s lead while making their way slowly and stealthily down the core. With the exception of Boomer who was anything but stealthy. Looking all around like a kid in a candy store, the beautiful teenager spoke after her bubble gum bubble bursted. “Reality check time. This is the big M we are talking about here. I don’t like ‘Grand Theft Outer Space Station’ as much as the next blonde but what exactly is the plan here?”

“We kick Magneto’s ass and make it home in time to watch Sabado Gigante,” quipped the long haired Mexican Rictor. “Ay, dios mio. That show still can’t be on the air,” added the furry feminine feline Feral.

Pressing an area just below his thumb but past the wrist of his robotic arm, a small rectangular space opened on Cable’s forearm. Next he stuck his arm into a square hole in a wall.

“We’re going to defeat Magneto alright, but it’s best we avoid a direct confrontation. First I’m going to try to free Professor. There are several Mutants and Super-Heroes that have vanished in the last few days. If any of them are here I’m going to attempt to hack Graymalkin and teleport them all back to Earth with a massive body slide. Then I’m setting this place to self destruct after we all beam back home.”

“So, we’re only here as back up just in case we get attacked? Droga! I was looking for some action!” “Chances are you will get your wish, Sunspot. Do not think for a second that Magneto will go unaware of our intrusion for long,” responded Shatterstar.

“Cable, ye sure this is somethin’ ye wanna do,” questioned Siren. Warpath was curious as well. “Destroying Graymalkin. In the past you called it the place that reminds you of where you’ve been, the life you lost and where you need to go.”

“…Make no mistake it still pains me to do so. Graymalkin was everything to me. Until I met you guys. X-Force is my family now. I no longer need a space station to tell me where I’m headed.”

This was an extremely rare showing of emotion on Cable’s part. There was no response except for Cannonball smiling and touching Cable’s shoulder. “Keep your guard up Sam,” was all Cable had to say. Withdrawing his hand and still smiling, Cannonball and the rest of X-Force formed a defensive semi circle around their leader.

“Systems Datanet Access: Processing.” This was the computerized voice that Cable could hear in his head.

“Come on… Come on… All this for a stupid computer program.”

“Why Nathan, I am not certain if I should be thanking you for your tenacity or chiding you for your insults.” The Professor spoke to Cable with a different computerized voice that all could here. “Professor! You’re alright!” Cable was happy since this computer program that has guided him through the years was really important to him and a true friend during times he had very few.

“Other than a mild case of indigestion due to this alien programming, I am online.”

“Yeah, Magneto probably used lots of Shi’ar technology he acquired during his time with the X-Men to rewrite your netcode. Download’s complete. There won’t be any need for you to stay here once I blow this place to smithereens.”

“I believe allowing you to retrieve this small piece of your past was more than gracious of me. Surely, you do not expect me to allow you to destroy my home!”

This voice came from a yellow tornado or energy and once these winds died down all could see that those words were spoken by the Master of Magnetism. Magneto had teleported to the area thanks to the Mutant power of his right hand man Exodus. Also accompanying them were eight Dark Riders. Each of various sizes and weights and all wore blue cloaks with red hieroglyphics that covered their entire bodies.

“Looks like you’re going to get the fight you were looking for Sunspot. X-Force, MOVE OUT!”

Cable pulled out two futuristic hand guns and started blasting away while the rest of X-Force attacked!

With his body generating a field of thermo-chemical energy to create a blast field all around him, Cannonball came flying towards his opponents like a guided missile. “Sam Guthrie, Cannonball of Xavier’s second generation (referring to Cannonball’s time as one of the New Mutants), you shall not harm our lord and savior Magneto this day.” With these words Exodus floated up in the air and attacked Cannonball with a massive yellow surge of both telepathic and telekinetic energy. This caused Cannonball’s blast field to shut down. Before he hit the ground however, a Dark Rider leaped above him and a shower of black ooze poured out from the bottom of his cloak. This black goo covered the X-Force member and tossed him away until he hit a wall off in the distance knocking him out!

Boomer tossed several balls of explosive energy at one Dark Rider who even beneath her cloak you could tell had a very shapely figure. Stealthily dodging all of Boomer’s bombs, when the Dark Rider was in range a blade composed of purple energy sprung out of her right hand. She shoved the blade into Boomer’s forehead and after a scream another X-Force member had fallen!

The Irish Mutant Siryn, daughter of Banshee who also inherited the same powers flew while her Sonic Scream pushed one of the Dark Riders back. He countered with a Sonic Boom projectile, which was similar to Nash’s move only he used both arms. The Sonic Boom cut through the waves of Siryn’s Sonic Scream and smacked her in the face! The Dark Rider immediately ran beneath her and followed this up with a Sommersault Kick!

Rictor tried to erupt the ground beneath a feminine Dark Rider with a rather small frame. Putting her arms around her knees like a ball, she leaped through the air while rolling to avoid the shaken ground. Once she was by Rictor’s side her body radiated with light blue energy. A back knuckle to the back of Rictor’s skull zapped him with that same energy taking him down!

Feral came viciously clawing away with her sharp nails, but unfortunately for the Puerto Rican Mutant the opponent she chose was much more ferocious than she was. Thanks to the long sleeves of his cloak you couldn’t see the Dark Rider’s own claws, but he made a bloody mess of Feral’s mid section with several lightning fast claw strikes! She fell to the ground a downright bloody mess!

Shatterstar attacked with his two twin blade swords while his opponent revealed a long red Katana that emerged out of his right sleeve that had several black splotches all around it. In a crouching position, this Dark Rider countered every one of Shatterstar’s sword strikes! The blades clashed against each other until the Dark Rider made a diagonal strike from Shatter’s right chest area down to his left oblique winning the fight!

Warpath, the Apache Native American who was the younger brother of the deceased X-Man Thunderbird decided to pit his super strength against the largest Dark Rider. He was so gigantic his cloak looked more like a blanket that was tossed over his body. With each punch he landed there was a clanging noise, but Warpath performed no damage to his assailant. A single punch to the face from the Dark Rider was all he needed to knock Warpath out! The blow sent him flying away until he collided with one of the many pillars in the area!

With his black energy field flowing all around him, Sunspot tried to knock one of the Dark Riders out. To his surprise, out of nowhere a field of small boulders floated around his enemy blocking all of his punches! The Rider raised his arms up and to beams of yellow energy fired from them and attacked Sunspot in the stomach defeating him instantaneously!

Putting his small handguns away, a huge stapler like rifle appeared in his hands and he unleashed his “VECTOR BEAM,” at Magneto. “FORCE FIELD” countered Magnus and the sphere of energy blocked the path of the beam.

“Since half of you is made out of metal, the fact that you have chosen to do battle with the overlord of fatal attraction makes you utterly devoid of reason! E.M. PULSE!”

Magneto’s projectile move all but shredded half of Cable’s metallic body! He remained on the floor with one arm, half a face and most of his left leg was torn apart with computerized parts sticking out of it. He trembled as his computer program Professor was able to still keep him alive, for now working with what was left of the techno-organic parts of his body.

“With your X-Force squad defeated, I leave you with a parting gift Cable. Apocalypse is on this base and he still lives. Your greatest enemy is about to succeed in taking over the Earth and the apocalyptic future that you hail from will come to pass!” “…No… It can’t be!” “Your time traveling mission to prevent Apocalypse’s reign has ended in utter failure!”

With this final gloat over his fallen foe, all there was left for Magneto to do was laugh maniacally. “HA HA HA HA HA HA HA HA!”

Next Up: Okay it’s really obvious to guess who a lot of these Dark Riders are, but I’m going to reveal all of them in only two short chapters so if you’ve managed to figure any of them out please don’t say so on this fic until I get there! I hope I at least have you guessing over one or two! Anyway next time, our heroes all get together to compare notes with Nick Fury to decide their next move. Also we’ll get to see Apocalypse, the Horseman of Death once again and Sabretooth’s helper Birdy! I will update around April. Radioactive Bytes for this chapter I’ll toss really soon. See you in a bit!


Radioactive Bytes: I tried to put this in bits and pieces throughout the story, but in short this is how the events of X-Men 1, 2 and 3 by Chris Claremont and aspects of Fatal Attractions happen in this world.

Suffice it to say, for the Capcom video games X-Men Children of the Atom and X-Men Mutant Apocalypse for a large part of the story of both games Capcom merged both storylines. Both are available in trade paperbacks if you want to check them out.

There’s a few variant TPBs for X-Men 1-3, but this one will give you up to issue 7 which is a good bet.

And here’s the trade paperback for Fatal Attractions.

While Capcom’s fighter Children of the Atom changed some aspects of X-Men 1-3 in this world they remain exactly the same way as they were depicted in the comic. No real changes there. For Capcom’s game the changes were that Exodus was with the original Acolytes and the battle took place on Avalon and not on Asteroid M. Which are aspects of Fatal Attractions. In this world none of that is true. X-Men 1-3 take place as is.

For the Fatal Attractions events in this world, Magneto does take over Graymalkin and turns it into Avalon. He survived the destruction of Asteroid M the same way, with the Acolyte Chrome saving his life. In this world it happens after Cable gets lost in the time stream so he is unaware of the entire event. Cable does return some time after, as he is needed to ‘displace’ Apocalypse as he does to lead to the events of X-Men vs. Street Fighter but during this time he is absent.

It plays out just like the Capcom video game X-Men Mutant Apocalypse, with Cyclops, Psylocke, Gambit, Wolverine and Beast teleporting to the base, facing Exodus and defeating Magneto (I thiiink I referred to it as Asteroid M and not Avalon in the past as a goof. I will fix once I start re-editing). In Fatal Attractions, the actual Mutants who traveled to this base were Wolverine, Jean Grey, Quicksilver, Rogue, Gambit and Professor X.

Avalon was created to be a safe haven for Mutants, and those aspects of Fatal Attractions still remain here. The attack on the base by the United Nations and Magneto’s retaliation still occur as is.

One difference in this world is in the game Magneto once again stole nukes, which is a nod to X-Men 1-3. I’m chalking that up as a gameplay thing to give you something to do so you can have a reason to fight Exodus a bunch of times lol! I think what actually happens in this world is the X-Men run around beating up a lot of second generation Acolytes before fighting Magneto and destroying the base, but I won’t spell it out so make of it what you will. The only reason is I selfishly want to use the nukes myself and Magneto using it three times is a bit redundant ROFL! Even though Graymalkin / Avalon supposedly has the power to destroy the Earth itself, I think the nukes are more for a showing of strength if all else. Besides since I’ve never seen Graymalkin even come close to destroying the Earth, I’m not even sure how that would work unless it wanted to collide with the Earth or something. But moving on.

So yeah, even though Avalon was already a fusion of Graymalkin and Asteroid M, it didn’t really resemble Asteroid M at all. So this time Asteroid M is more of a visual fusion of the two bases.

I’m not keeping the name Avalon because that was more Magneto’s thing, creating a haven for Mutants. While Apocalypse has some Mutants, villains and brainwashed villains for him that’s not what he’s all about. He’s ready to destroy the world with nukes and earthquakes and if any more Mutants remain on Earth they’ll have proved worthy for salvation. Survival of the fittest is as always his main agenda.

I think the name Asteroid M resonates with more people too. The name’s been used a lot more and heck it’s the final base in Konami’s X-Men arcade game.

Ah and after Fatal Attractions, most of the second generation of Acolytes were either presumed dead or missing for a while. This holds true here, with Exodus being one of the survivors. Particularly since he was a character in X-Men Mutant Apocalypse, he’s already been ‘Capcomized’ lol so he’s gotta show up here.

So you can chalk up a lot of what’s going on in this story as the second half of Fatal Attractions. Why well, I try to merge whatever I can from comics and video games as much as possible. Also, there are two really big elements that occur during Fatal Attractions that Capcom left out in both Children of the Atom and Mutant Apocalypse. They have to be put in this world because they have a direct effect on characters Capcom chose to use in both Marvel vs. Capcom 1 and 2. If you are a comic book junkie like me you know what I am talking about but if not don’t worry, all will be revealed in time.

And yeah, Capcom did Fatal Attractions without Cable, I mean it’s his base that was captured lol! So my whole ‘lost in the time stream thing’ is why he wasn’t around until now. He has to get Professor out of there before Graymalkin blows up man really important! Somewhat important going all the way up to Marvel vs. Capcom 3, because the remnants of Graymalkin eventually become Providence and that has a lot to do with how Deadpool teleports! Ha well I said somewhat important. :stuck_out_tongue:

Speaking of X-Men Fatal Attractions, this entire chapter is based largely on X-Force #25 that is also featured in the Fatal Attractions paperback. Whenever I could I lifted dialog straight out of the book or tweaked it here and there. There are differences however. X-Force came to the base with Rusty and Skids along who were recently brainwashed by Strife during X-Ecutioner’s Song. Magneto cured them using the iron content in their blood. That part is left out and for now let’s say Rusty and Skids were eventually cured by Professor X. I LOVE both of those characters, but I thought it was a bit much to include those characters.

Also in that story, Cable appears at the beginning of the tale after his travel through the time stream. Like I said before, he’s already been here for a while so the grievances Sunspot and Rictor had against him, thinking that Cable did things against them that were really committed by Strife and Gideon respectively are all already settled.

Funny tidbit about X-Force #25, when Magneto appears he is wearing a purple cloak that covers his entire body, and it has yellow designs around it but not hieroglyphics like I’ve been using. There is a bit of a mystery until it is revealed that it is Magneto. At this point I can’t remember if this is where my idea for having all of the Dark Riders and Horseman wear cloaks originated from, either on a conscious or a subconscious level. I think it’s also part of another thing I picked up from watching tons of anime, cloaked and masked warriors happen a lot there lol! Anyway, mad props to the writer Nickieza and the artist Capullo either way since it might just be a visual that stuck with me many years later and resurfaced in this story.

A quick note about Sunspot. This takes place before X-Force #28 so he hasn’t gained the power to shoot blasts of flames just yet. Three issues away D’OH!

About how the X-Force members look in this story. In my mind they are all wearing the same outfits they had in X-Force #25 but these characters have changed outfits so many times you can pretty much imagine whatever. Boomer has had multiple names such as Boom Boom, Meltdown and Time Bomb but during this story she was called Boomer so I stuck to that.

Cable’s outfit in this story would be the '90s one (like what he was wearing in the '90’s X-Men cartoon) but since in this world MvC2 is only two years away you can feel free to imagine his MvC2 outfit, no big. His move set would be exactly the same anyway, except for his uppercut move since he hasn’t gained his spear just yet.

Hey I can use my knowledge of being Latino for laughs lol! Sabado Gigante is a long running Spanish show and I guess the American equivalent would be The Price is Right. Only it lasts for hours and hours on end every Saturday and there are half naked woman dancing to advertise things like Cap’n Crunch cereal! LOL I love my culture. And yeah the show has literally been on the show forever so it’s probably all well and good with Marvel’s sliding time scale whenever you want to place this story.

Exodus’ comment to Cannonball, yes both Cannonball and Sunspot were original members of the team New Mutants and they go quite a ways back.

Magneto was for a time a member of the X-Men (well in comics he’s an X-Man once again as of right now) and during that time he gained access to the alien technology the X-Men use thanks to their familiarity with the alien race the Shi’ar. This was true in the original Fatal Attractions story as well.

Cable was indeed shredded up by Magneto in X-Force #25 too. He didn’t use his fighting game move “E.M. PULSE,” of course lol but it had the same result. Another reason to check out X-Force #25 within the Fatal Attractions TPB is you can get a good visual of Cable being jacked up. Hey if you were ever playing MvC2 and you got beat up a Cable, Storm, Sentinel team maybe it will give you a good laugh! ~_^

Boy, that was quite a lot for such a short chapter. Looking forward to playing Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 on the PS Vita later this week! Take it easy, play some video games and read some comics. They are good for you! Lol see you in April!


Progress Report: I’ve been working on the next entry for a while now whenever I’ve had free time.

Since all of the heroes will gather there’s a bunch of stuff I don’t recall from 6 years ago when I started this thing. So rereading, making small corrections and fixing up gramatical errors when I see them.

Nothing too major so no reason for anyone to reread if you don’t want to as far as corrections go.

A lot of my older links placed here are broken and no longer work. Some of that is due to all of SRK’s old links not working thanks to one upgrade or another.

I’ve fixed the X-Men vs. Street Fightet Fan Fic link in the first post since that is the most important link. As for the rest, I’ll have to look into either fixing or removing at another time.

Of course any questions and stuff on older links you can always ask here or toss me a PM.

Ah, I will say that long ago I said I wouldn’t go into which members comprised the Avengers at this time in this story. For quite a few years I’ve been thinking about touching upon it. Roughly it will probably be close to the same Avengers team featured during Infinity Gauntlet/Crusade, give or take. Not 100% sure I’ll go into that and that’s still a ways off.

Boy, having to write a SHIELD debriefing scene after the great ones Joss Whedon did in the Avengers movie. I’m in awe lol! Amazing flick.

New Spider-Man movie coming soon! I hope it doesn’t suck lol! Happy Fourth of July and not sure when the next chapter will be up. Definitely working on it whenever time allows.


Still cleaning up and fixing things. A quick note about a few of the chapters. Sometimes, most of my edits wouldn’t go through at first because it exceeded SRK’s current letter limit. So I chucked ‘Info Bytes’ stuff. Mostly me rambling here and there, nothing too important.

Hopefully I’ll be able to continue soon! I’m in the final stages of editing at least!


Wow edits to chapters finally done.

A quick note that the edits still aren’t perfect. I had printed the entire faq out and made really detailed edits on paper. Then like a slob I left the notes on the floor. Later I had a small pipe leak during a flood in my basement where I tend to work. It 's all good, no damage done to my property. Except I lost some of the notes but not all. D’OH! So I mostly reread and fixed what I could when I didn’t have notes on hand.

I will do another detailed edit at some point but I have roughly five to six chapters to get through first so I’ll touch back on that at another time.

A couple of notes on the end of the Blackheart fight. Chapter 25 to be exact.

I always wanted the red streams that drag him down the satanic circle to have little fingers on their ends but at the time I thought I was copying Bayonetta, the scene that plays out when she dies and these black streams with hands drag her to hell.

Later on I remembered that Jedah in Darkstalkers 3 has a move like that where blood hands drag you down to a big blood pool.

So I added the little fingers back on the streams because now I can say it’s inspired by a Capcom property and not from a game made by Kamiya who used to work for Capcom? Man I dunno. :rofl:

Lol well the little hands thing is kind of a common anime / video game thing I guess. Hard to rember every instance I’ve seen them, but the recent Fullmetal Alchemist Brotherhood anime seemed to be fond of the black streams with little hands.

Also originally Cyclops was the one to say ‘Bamf’ to get himself, Polaris and Ryu out of that temple. I forgot that you have to touch your neck when you say that to teleport. With Cyclops carrying Polaris and touching Ryu’s shoulder his hands seemed busy, so now Ryu says bamf. And since Cyke is touching Ryu all three safely travel away.

Other than those two things not much point in re-reading the story for those that have since the edits were mostly about grammar. Again, it’s still not perfect but I will revisit and for now I have to move on.

It will either be one or two chapters coming soon and I plan to put them up in a couple of weeks.

Can’t wait for MvC Origins this Tuesday! The more Capcom Marvel games I can access on my PS3 instead of hooking up ooold systems for reference the better. Of course they really need XvSF and MSHvSF up there so I can finally retire my Sega Saturn that has been rigged to play Japanese games lol! Hopefully next year or so!

CHAPTER 33: “Not So Brief Mission Debrief!”

On the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier our heroes enter from the two opposing sides of the war room, with doors sliding before them and closing once everyone was inside. On the left side the Super-Heroes Captain America, Cyclops, Spider-Man, Wolverine and Hulk enter while on the right the Street Fighters Ryu, Ken and Chun-Li were present. Lying against the wall that was in between both groups was Nick Fury with his arms folded.

“Chun-Li! Looks like you’re all better,” pointed out Captain America. “Yeah, all patched up!”

“S.H.I.E.L.D.'s docs took care of you guys good,” interjected Nick Fury. “Through the use of cold silicone compounds to heal bones, flesh tone silicones to cover injuries and microscopic nano machines that will dissolve into nutrients for your body the healing process has been speed up for you guys. You’re all as good as new. And of course the Costume Changer fixed up any rips and tears in your clothing easy peasy.”

“Nice! I guess the Costume Changer ran out of batteries when it came to the Karate Kid parts 1 and 2 along with the golly green giant. Should’ve used Duracell! It keeps going and going and going…” “Just like you’re mouth,” said Hulk in an effort to shut Spider-Man up. “Strictly by choice,” added Ken. “Haven’t you heard the torn look is in! You know Spider-Man, your outfit might look better with less webbing and a blue shirt with the sleeves torn off, I can totally see it!” “Yeah, gonna pass on that one thanks… Say, how’s Sakura doing?”

“She’s recovering fine,” answered Fury. “So is Dan, Zangief and U.S. Agent. Polaris is resting. We didn’t use the same advanced medical procedures we used on you guys since none of them are imperative to the next phase of the mission. Rest assured, all of them will return home injury free.”

“I think a few proper introductions are in order,” noticed Captain America. “Spider-Man and Hulk, these are the Street Fighters Ryu, Ken and Chun-Li.” Hulk greated with a simple wave and said, “Yo!” Spider-Man on the other hand quickly Web-Swung across the room and held out his hand in front of Ryu. “Friendly Neighborhood Spider-Man at your service. Pleased to meetchya!” “Um… Yes… Hi…” Ryu put one hand behind his head and shook Spider-Man’s with the other. He looked extremely uncomfortable.

Spidey crossed both his arms to shake Ken and Chun-Li’s hands at the same time. “What’s his problem? Let me guess, a Daily News subscriber…” “Don’t mind him. He’s not a big fan of spiders.” “KEN!” “When he went camping as a kid a spider crawled into his mouth while he was sleeping!” “YIKES! I can relate. I went camping as a kid with my uncle once and I woke up with an action figure in my mouth with the Kung-Fu grip!” “Tee hee!” Chun-Li chuckled at Spider-Man’s joke and Ryu’s embarassment, Ryu turned red and looked off to the side. “AWKWAAAARD…” Spider-Man pointed out.

“With intros out of the way it’s time to get down to business.” “Couldn’t agree more Cyclops,” said Nick Fury. “Yeah, better listen to the two one eyes and compare notes on our recent adventures,” declared Wolverine.

Sometime later, everyone was sitting at the long table of the War Room with the Street Fighters on one side and the Super-Heroes on the other. Nick Fury was naturally at the head of the table.

Everyone had finished telling their tales of the battles and everything they had witnessed during this fight against Apocalypse’s minions and machinations. So now they reflected on everything they’ve just heard.

“While I am glad that I didn’t end his life (during X-Men vs. Street Fighter), it is a shame that Magneto is still up to misfortune,” said Ryu. “I feel the same exact way about Vega,” added Cyclops. “But I guess he’s out of the picture for good now.” “If he’s anythin’ like one of our villains you can never be too sure Cyke.” “True Wolverine, but his defeat came at a high price,” stated Captain America. After Chun-Li said “Nash…” everyone remained quiet, as if they were giving Nash a moment of silence for his heroic sacrifice.

Soon Ryu interrupted the silence and spoke. “Spider-Man, thanks for looking out for Sakura. And you held your own against Gouki! You’re alright. Sorry about when we first met back there…” “No problem Ryu, she’s one strong kid. That Gouki’s no joke either. He’s really the brother of your master? Small world.” “Gouki’s a tough one alright,” agreed Wolverine. “You fought him before too Canuckle Head? A Wolverine vs. a Lion. I think I saw that one on the Discovery Channel!”

“Hey Hulk thanks for bringing back Zangief, and for not killing Dan,” quipped Ken. “Ah Dan’s not so bad. Spider-Man’s WAY more annoying.” “Couldn’t agree more,” said Wolverine. “Ah my adoring public and fellow Substitute Fantastic Four members. It’s cool, Ghost Rider still digs me. You gotta see him root for me in his cheerleading outfit!”

“So to bring us to our current dillemma, Magneto has captured four nukes and taken them up to Asteroid M,” said Nick Fury. “Any idea where that is?” Ken wanted to know.

“Thank to our mole in Apocalypse’s organization we just received exact coordinates. We’ll be able to teleport all eight of you there safely.”

“I hate to be the one to state the obvious here but this could be a trap.” “True Cyclops, but our source hasn’t let us down yet. Our program, D.T.N.Y. also confirms the information for what it’s worth.”

“So this is some asteroid that crash landed on Earth right?” “Not exactly, Chun-Li. It’s in outer space.”

“OUTER SPACE? Wait a second! I just got through seeing dinosaurs and a demon from hell and now I’m going into outer space! This is fantastic!” “You said it Ryu! I just fought some zombie ninjas! I think the only thing we haven’t done on this adventure is traveled to the future to stop a robot army from taking over the world!”

“Yeah maybe we can arrange that, eh Slim?” “Now’s not the time for levity Logan, onto matters at hand.”

“Right. We’ll be able to send four of you at a time with the Teleporter. Your mission, get the nukes away from Apocalypse somehow and defeat him. Rescue all of the captured Super-Heroes and Martial Artists on board. Even with the destination coordinates, you should expect to be attacked by the eight remaining Dark Riders, Magneto and the remaining Horseman of Death. The base itself is most likely covered with a giant magnetic force field surrounding it, but we’ll send a space shuttle to retrieve you if your mission is successful. Even though we are only sending a small force, our computer program D.T.N.Y. says you guys are our best chance of defeating Apocalypse.”

“Oh that’s all we have to do. And I thought this was going to be difficult,” chimed in Hulk. Ryu added, “Like Cyclops said to me earlier, never a dull moment!”

Meanwhile on Asteroid M, we find Birdy and Doctor Senoh once again sitting before a large computer control panel. The door to enter the room slid open and Apocalypse enters with a cloaked Dark Rider. With them was also his trusted aid Ozymandais.

“Birdy, did you think The Apocalypse was not aware of your betrayal? Even your leaks to S.H.I.E.L.D. were all foreseen by the great Aubuextl. When our guests arrive it will be our finest hour, destroying the greatest Super-Heroes and Martial Artist the world has to offer. Still, you’re betrayal cannot be forgiven,” he stated while walking forward menacingly.

“Mistah Apocalypse! You’ve flipped you’re gourd! They’ll nevah turn the Earth over to you! You’ll just wind up killin’ millions! No, billions! I’ve killed in my day as a hired gun but you’re talkin’ genocide!” “If they do not let The Apocalypse rule the Earth as it is I shall wash it away in a hail of nuclear fire! Dark Rider, this betrayer requires thirteen pieces of silver, but red will suffice!”

The Dark Rider held out his arm and from the sleeve thirteen red triangle shaped spikes fired from it! Birdy tried to get out of her chair and run away but all thirteen shards stabbed her in the stomach! She fell down while clutching abdomen and bleeding on the floor.

“Ozymandais, get her to one of the capsules. I can still siphon her remaining power.” “Yes, my lord.”

NEXT UP: Half of the next chapter is written up, but since it’s a short one and this is a big one I figure this is a good time to break. Next time the heroes meet the remaining Dark Riders and all of their identities will be revealed! Just a few Radioactive Bytes this time so those should come really soon!


RADIOACTIVE BYTES: The stuff about the silicone compounds being used to speed up the healing process for our heroes is taken from Amazing Spider-Man #529, I added the bit about the nano machines. To put this in perspective, JMS the writer of Amazing Spider-Man at the time wanted to do a really long story about Spider-Man called ‘The Other.’ The story would’ve lasted a year or two and would’ve taken Spider-Man out of circulation, so Marvel decided to split the story up between multiple writers, have it run through all of Spider-Man’s current books so it could finish up quickly.

When all was said and done there was a mistake. In one book Spider-Man, mutated into a big monster broke Mary Jane’s forearm backwards. In the next issue written by another writer, her arm was fine!

So to clean up the mistake, JMS had Iron Man go through a long explanation to Spider-Man telling him how he was able to heal her up relatively quickly. So hey I figured I could just use the same explanation and all, make some use out of that storyline bit heh heh!

Well hey if you do want to check out ASM #529 it also debuts the Iron Spidey Armor suit which you can use as an alternate costume in UMvC3 so if this is another incentive for you to track down that issue hey go for it!

Speaking of alternate costumes, the new look for Spider-Man that Ken is talking about is a nod to the Scarlet Spider outfit, which you can purchase in UMvC3. It’s from the Clone Saga which hasn’t happened in this world just yet, even though Spider-Man references it a lot in his Capcom appearances, mostly after he wins a mirror match lol! I’m not a fan of that storyline but hey if you want it to happen at some point after this story in this world more power to you I guess. I prefer the recent retelling of the Clone Saga by Mackie and DeFalco personally so I’d go with that version, just get Lady Octopus in there somehow lol!

Ryu dislikes spiders and he did wake up with one in his mouth during a camping trip, that much is true. It’s funny that if you think about spiders in Capcom games they usually turn out to be villains or not-so-good people! Phantom in Devil May Cry, the Spider Demon in Okami, SSF4 Juri’s whole spider motif, there’s several examples.

There’s an old story about a young Peter Parker camping with his Uncle Ben. Marvel ran a series of stories that featured adventures Marvel characters had before they became Super-Heroes. For the life of me I can’t remember the name of the series or the issue number but that’s where the notion of Uncle Ben and Peter camping comes from. He didn’t wake up with an action figure in his mouth though lol!

His Kung Fu Grip joke is from the movie Trading Places, Eddie Murphy used that line to describe a G.I. Joe figure lol! Most likely in reference to the G.I. Joe Quick Kick.There’s a few G.I. Joe connections to the Marvel world. J. Jonah Jameson has actually shown up in the G.I. Joe Marvel comic before! There was also another story where Spider-Man was fighting in a store and he crashed into some G.I. Joe figures! So I figure both G.I. Joes and their figures exist in this world. Not to mention that Capcom produced a G.I. Joe video game before! I just naturally assume that they went ignored by Apocalypse and he didn’t capture them because they are soldiers and stuff. Well hey if you want Cobra to be one of the organizations that funded Apocalypse don’t let me stop you!

Oh hey speaking of other worlds and stuff recently I re-read Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles #1, the original series. IDW has recently been rereleasing those issues under Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Color Classics. TOTALLY forgot that the vile of Mutagen that mutated the turtles was the same as the one that blinded Matt Murdock AKA Daredevil when he was a kid! So yeah, I guess the turtles start their adventures 13 years after all of that and I don’t know how long it would take Matt to get out of law school and stuff but if you want to shove the turtles in this world since I had Ken mention them earlier sure! Whatever incarnation you use DO NOT GO WITH THE UPCOMING MICHAEL BAY HOLLYWOOD TAKE WHERE THEY ARE ALIENS OR ELSE!!! Or else nothing I guess but still ROFL!

Back on topic, there is a substitute Fantastic Four team that consisted of Spider-Man, Hulk, Ghost Rider and Wolverine occurred in Fantastic Four #348. Pretty awesome that all four characters are in UMvC3 now!

The back and forth about the robot army takeover is twofold. My personal perception is that just about every game franchise featured in the versus games, at least on Capcom’s end is part of a shared Capcom Universe. Not that all of the games are related, but just in the versus games they are. So the robot army apocalypse, that kind of does happen after the Rockman AKA Mega Man X series so that’s my nod towards that. Also, with the Sentinels taking over it also happens in X-Men’s world with Days of Future Past. Which there is a background for in UMvC3! Almost all of the Marvel future stuff I chalk up in this world as alternate realities that do not occur and take place on different Earths while all of the Capcom ones happen. Of course I’m totally down with Marvel futures that don’t interfere with a lot like Spider-Man 2099 and the MC2 Universe. So anyway yeah a double reference there.

I talked about this before but since Birdy appears in like 5 comics total (one X-Men issue, the Sabretooth limited series) and dies off camera whoa… I’m a little sympathetic towards her. Her speech pattern is based on Harlequin’s from the Batman Animated series, comics and Arkham video games. Namely the way Arleen Sorkin portrays her. She doesn’t talk like that in the comics but that’s just the vibe I got from the ‘Yeah boss’ she gives to Sabretooth in the Capcom games. Well while she did kill lots of ninjas and stuff in the Sabretooth limited series you do feel kind of bad for her since she was trying to get away from Sabretooth. So I painted her as not being all that bad. Kill people bad but not kill everybody on planet Earth bad…

Guess that’s it for this time so I’ll be back to update in December. We finally get to learn the identities of the remaining 8 Dark Riders! Then come next year I’ll start the next round of fights! Check out Wreck-It Ralph if you haven’t, it rules! I’ve used like every Street Fighter in the movie in either this fic or the X-Men vs. SF fic so hooray I feel relevant. Lol take care and my heart goes out to those suffering through Hurricane Sandy. Be easy.


CHAPTER 34: “One Small Step For Marvel, One Giant Leap For Street Fighters!”

Captain America, Ryu, Spider-Man, Ken, Cyclops, Chun-Li, Wolverine and Hulk teleported inside Asteroid M as planned. Inside of this white futuristic looking space station Ryu looked outside of a giant window. He could see the Earth from quite a distance.

“Wow this is an amazing view! I’m sure there are few that will ever get to witness something like this!” Everyone else took a gander. Ken and Chun-Li were a bit more impressed at the sight than the rest of the heroes since all of them have traveled to space before.

“That might be the case Ryu, but our primary concern is those nukes down there,” pointed out Captain America. From the same window, everyone looked down and could see four gigantic missiles floating in space and pointed at the Earth.

“I guess there’s no time to waste star gazing,” agreed Ken. Suddenly he looked over to his extreme right and saw something that scared the life out of him.


What he saw was a giant man that had a huge bald head that was almost the size of his body. Wearing a blue and white toga and strange alien footwear, his eyes held no pupils and he stood there silently watching.

“No that’s Uatu, The Watcher. A cosmic being. He pops in to watch the major battles we have and records them, especially the ones that will decide the fate of the World. This must be one of the big ones. Everyone give it your all. If he’s here the chances of us winning are pretty slim, but we’ve been able to keep the Earth safe, so far.” Spider-Man’s response to Ken was a bit more serious than usual for him.

“Yeah he watches, but doesn’t interfere. Baldy won’t help either side. He’s like the peeping tom of the Super-Hero community. Try to ignore,” added Hulk.

With a bit of levity, Chun-Li said “I guess you can cross seeing aliens off your must-see list Ryu and Ken! All that’s left for you guys is robots.” “Covered once we rescue Vision. Now let’s get a move on…”

Captain America’s words were cut short when eight Dark Riders teleported before them! Instantly all of them removed their cloaks to reveal their identities. There stood Psylocke, Guile, Sabretooth, Killer Bee, Juggernaut, Venom, Carnage and Doctor Doom! All assumed their fighting stances and were ready to assault our heroes who remained shocked at this assembly of friends, villains and deadly rivals they were about to square off against! Uatu, The Watcher was about to witness an incredible battle indeed!

NEXT UP: Short chapter after a long hiatus so just wanted to end on the big reveal of the remaining Dark Riders. Writing up the next chapter now so hopefully it will be up soon!


CHAPTER 35: “The New Sinister Six, Plus Two!”

To those that know him it should come as no shock that the talkative Spider-Man was the first to break the silence between the eight heroes and eight followers of Apocalypse.

“Hey Venom, so not surprised you went back to being a villain. I knew your hero stint in San Francisco wouldn’t stick. Mad props though, you were one of the good guys for a full five minutes!”

As usual Venom would refer to himself, Eddie Brock and his alien symbiote as ‘we.’ “We were fighting on the side of angels, spider. But Apocalypse has shown us the light.”

“I get it. You were brainwashed. Wow that must’ve been the most difficult brainwashing session of all time. I bet Apocalypse had to work all night coming up with the question, ‘Excuse me Mr. Venom. Would like coffee, tea or being evil again?’ Decisions deciiiiiisiooooons…”

"Ooooh daddy! Let me shut grandpa up before he starts talking about the silver age of Super-Heroes again. ‘When I was your age all my villains wore green and we didn’t have no alien symbiotes,’ " chimed in Carnage. He referred to Venom as his father often since his symbiote gave birth to the red and black one Cletus Kassidy wears.

“No Carnage, the spider belongs to us. Go play with that Ken doll over there.” “Yippee! Can I rip his arms and legs off and pull down his pants to see if he’s anatomically correct down there like I used to do to Barbie’s boyfriend? I CAN HAS TEH BLOOD?”

“Ken, be careful with Carnage. He’s weak against fire, loud noise and electricity if it helps,” encouraged Spider-Man to the Street Fighter. “Right.” Ken assumed his stance and was ready to take on the homicidal maniac.

Chun-Li stared at her friend who had his fists raised in the air with a rather serious expression on his face. “Guile! Don’t tell me you were brainwashed too!” Guile remained motionless.

“So that’s Nash’s friend, Guile? Chun-Li, let me fight him. I feel I owe it to Nash for saving our lives. Let me try to wake him up from Apocalypse’s spell.”

“Right Captain America… I’ll fight against Killer Bee. I’ve seen her in combat before (during X-Men vs. Street Fighter) so I know what I’m up against.” “Is she one of Shadowloo’s Dolls, like the other ones we fought in Madripoor?” "Yes, the most powerful. She nearly defeated Rogue all by herself (also during X-Men vs. Street Fighter).

Killer Bee, who Juggernaut recently renamed Cammy shifted from left to right during her stance as was typical of the Dolls. With her ice blue eyes she glared at the Chinese Martial Artist. “Target confirmed. Interpol Agent, Chun-Li. Psycho Limiter, release twenty percent of Psycho Power. That is all that is required to defeat my opponent.” After she spoke her body began to radiate slightly with light blue energy.

“I take it I can add Psylocke to the list of brainwashed candidates. I’ll do my best to save my fellow teammate,” added Cyclops.

A loud thud was caused when Juggernaut slammed his right fist against the palm of his left. “What d’ya say Hulk? Time we figured out who’s really the strongest one there is!” “Okay Jugghead. LET’S ROCK!”

“Hey runt! We’ve fought long enough. How 'bout I put you out of your misery once and for all! And after I finish with you your pretty blonde girlfriend who took me down with a lucky shot (during X-Men vs. Street Fighter) is next. If Carnage here leaves me a few table scraps,” threatened Sabretooth. “Let’s go bub! Too much is ridin’ on this one. I’m gonna bury the hatchets, six of them in your ugly face!” As expected, Wolverine unsheathed all six of his deadly Adamantium claws. “HAHAHAHAHA BRING IT ON PIPSQUEAK!”

“So I guess that leaves the tin man in the green hood for me to face off against,” pointed out the Street Fighter in the white gi. “Ryu, watch yourself. That’s Doctor Doom, arguably the most dangerous villain in the room. He’s taken on the entire Fantastic Four by himself and has even won a few times. Just hold out for as long as you can and I’ll help you once I defeat Guile.”

“Right, but don’t underestimate Guile either. He trained with Nash who managed to defeat Apocalypse before and ultimately, Vega.” Captain America gave a nod to show he understood his predicament.

“It is too laugh. Is the mighty Victor Von Doom, ruler of Latveria supposed to face off against a mere child? So be it. Once I am done with him I will turn my attention to any remaining heroes until all are under the heel of Doom!”

And with that, eight Dark Rigers and eight heroes ran towards each other (similar to the intro of the 90s X-Men animated series) to commence this deadly battle!

NEXT UP: I’ll do Radioactive Bytes in about a week or so to explain why I’m having all of these bonus fights in the first place. The short answer is I just want to play with as many Marvel characters as I can because at this slow rate it will take me 1,000 years to get up to Marvel vs. Capcom 2 lol! Anyway the first few fights, Cyclops vs. Psylocke and Captain America vs. Guile should come in May if all goes. Thanks for reading and catch you on the internets!


Radioactice Bytes: It’s really typical for The Watcher to show up for all of the big Marvel battles so why not? Fun fact, for the story of Marvel vs. Capcom 1, the Onslaught Saga in comics The Watcher actually was there to witness the final battle. For me, I think in this world it’s best if he shows up to all of the second acts. MSH vs. SF and MvC2 and not 1. For MvC3 / UMvC3, well, the final battle happens on a floating asteroid that he can probably see right outside of his window from the Blue Side Of The Moon so he doesn’t have to go anywhere lol!

More on The Watcher -

So from here on out will be a bunch of reasons why I’m doing all of these bonus fights. They’ve all been planned right from the beginning of the story when I mentioned all of the extra Dark Riders.

MSH vs. SF is one of the few Capcom fighting games that I personally didn’t care for the roster (and I’m a pretty hardcore Capcom fanboy, chances are if there’s a game where you didn’t like the roster I did, but not this time). It’s fine on the Street Fighter side, but not really a good representation of Marvel as a whole. So I wanted to add a few more Marvel villains to make the story work a little better for me.

Ideally I would love to keep fan fic writing this world until I got up to UMvC3 and beyond but it’s taking me this freaking long to get up to this point! So this will be a chance for me to play with some fan favorites.

Why no Thor or Iron Man? Well, here’s the thing. Neither of the two were popular in the 90s when this game was in circulation. It’s really the movies that have made them household names, especially Iron Man. And Thor doesn’t even become a full fledged playable character until UMvC3 so I feel it’s way too early to use him here. Besides, I’d have to brainwash them… Ah well, they are among the captured heroes.

Using Venom a little early since he doesn’t show up until MvC1, but I’m a HUGE Spider-Man fan and I HAVE to play with like the only real Spider-Man villain in the games heh!

Why Carnage? He is kind of in MvC1 as a Venom swap so this is my way of using him here to just avoid a Carnage MvC1 appearance (if I ever get around to fan fic writing MvC1, ugh…). Besides the 90’s Marvel comics for me were all about the Symbiotes so here’s me reliving my childhood.

Ken vs. Carnage is almost possible to accomplish in MvC1 if you do a swapped Venom vs. a Ryu-turned-red that uses Kens moves. So their battle will be based on that fight as much as possible.

Killer Bee AKA Cammy and Juggernaut, along with Guile show up since they all have unresolved issues from either this story or going way back to the X-Men vs. Street Fighter fic. Regarding Juggernaut, I had no Capcom character that could really take the guy on during the X-Men vs. SF story so here I can go all out with Hulk. That’s not a problem with later games when Darkstalkers and the like show up.

Venom vs. Spider-Man, Wolverine vs. Sabretooth, Juggernaut vs. Hulk MAAAAANG these fights have been done before, some even on the big screen! Well so what, I never wrote them and no one’s ever written these fights with people shouting out video game moves except for other fan fic writers so nya nya nya nya nya! :stuck_out_tongue: Lol well since this is being written on mainly a Street Fighter website I feel it would be good to get some of the Marvel vs. Marvel character rivalries in here. These are all like ‘bonus’ battles anyway.

All of the battles, except for Ken vs. Carnage will be largely based on MvC2 fights since that is the game almost everyone is the most familiar with.

Lastly, I always loved the fact that in a lot of Capcom games, whenever you thought you were about to finish a game you were wrong and they made you fight a lot old bosses again. It happened in Strider, every Mega Man game and so many other games you can list. So it’s my way of getting that flavor into this story. Of course only Sabretooth, Killer Bee and Juggernaut are actually returning foes, from the previous story so a little of old and new here.

There’s also a storyline reason why this is happening but just bear with me and all will be revealed in time!

Next Up: That’s enough pointless rambling from me. Catch you in May hopefully for Captain America vs. Guile and Cyclops vs. Psylocke! Iron Man 3 drops this week WORD! Thanks for reading and take care!



Working on the next chapter now, boy it’s been a while. Hopefully I’ll have something up in a few weeks.

Anyway reason I’m posting is that I’m really surprised that they are dropping a TPB for the X-Men Soul Skinner storyline. And it includes the two Psylockes story as well. I keep these single issues handy for reference but it will be great to have it as a TPB!

So far I referenced it way back during the X-Men vs. SF fic, you can see the team that came to Zangief’s aid in this book. Also I plan to reference it again with Omega Red and possibly the Psylocke stuff in the next installment. So yeah for anyone that missed out!

Finished my video game reviewing references for the next few fights, now I have to reread a few comics and things then get to writing the first few drafts before submitting. So creeping up on the next entry. Slowly but surely! Hopefully around Thanksgiving or so.


CHAPTER 36: “Brainwash, Rinse and Defeat!” Part 1

Due to Captain America underestimating Guile’s speed just a tad, the First Lieutenant in the Air Force managed to jab his chin with a left punch pushing him back. Quickly the Street Fighter hopped in the air for two left and right punches to his opponent’s face! Upon landing Guile’s body turned completely upside down for a kick to the Super-Hero’s face (his Forward High Kick maneuver)!

This last kick was blocked by Captain’s shield and from here he easily transitioned into his “CHARGING STAR” forcing the upside down Guile away! The strike caused his foot to snap back with his knee absorbing most of the impact of the thrusted attack.

Grabbing the floor with his hands Nash’s best friend positioned himself back on his feet in an instant almost like a break dancer performing a windmill. His “SONIC BOOM” was completely dodged by the Avenger’s Forward Cartwheel move and he passed right by it! With his Crouching Roundhouse kick Steve Rogers knocked Guile right off his feet! Next he jumped in the air to angle his “SHIELD SLASH” a bit better so his armament could strike the Martial Artist in the stomach!

While this attack hurt immensely and caused the Military Officer to spit out blood immediately, there’s just no slowing down a brainwashed minion apparently! “SOMERSAULT!” Before the World War II vet’s feet could even touch the ground Guile nabbed him with his famous maneuver taught to him by Nash himself! Captain America went soaring through the air and Guile followed him to perform his Crossfire Assault Super Art! Caught unawares the Super Soldier was struck with every punch and kick of this Aerial Combo that finished up with an Aerial Somersault attack!

Captain America landed on his back but rose quickly. The Lieutenant was on him like white on rice and caught him with his Aerial Launcher, his Crouching Uppercut! Guile leapt up to follow him but was smacked down by Captain America’s shield! Not that it mattered. The blow to the head didn’t seem to faze the brainwashed victim even though a trickle of blood poured down the side of his face. So he hastily performed yet another Super Art, his “SONIC HURRICANE!” Cap was only moments away from falling into this small tornado of sonic energy!

“Come on,” Psylocke and Cyclops stated simultaneously. Psylocke with a hand on her hip and motioning with her index finger on the left while Cyclops ran two fingers across his visor. The two words used for their taunts weren’t the only things the two currently had in common. Both were panting a bit since they’ve already traded a few blows.

“HEEYAH!” Elisabeth Braddock, Betsy for short performed a front flip and kicked the X-Men leader in the head. The beautiful ninja continued the attack with a hand stand and a kick to the face! Finishing up with a throw that involved lifting Cyclops in the air, flipping him around a few times and tossing him. Even so, Scott was skilled enough to land on his feet.

“OPTIC BLAST!” “PSY-BLAST!” Cyclops’ blast of red energy collided with Psylocke’s blast of light purple energy which looked like the wings of a large butterfly. The projectile attacks exploded upon contact canceling each other out!

Using the flash of reddish purple light as a distraction, Cyclops ran up to his fellow member of X-Men’s Blue Team for his Raising Knee Back Breaker move. Tackling the British Mutant whose mind was transferred into a Japanese assassin’s body some time ago, now Scott Summers was the one to flip around in the air with his adversary. Only she didn’t land her feet but flat on her back!

Standing right above Psylocke and ready to pin her to the floor with an Optic Blast, Cyclops never got the chance. She stood erect while yelling “KOLHO-GAKURE!” With this deadly Super Art a flurry of Psy-Blade style butterflies moved all around her attacking Cyclops! The multiple attacks of psionic energy were enough to send Jean Grey’s fiancee far away with him landing flat on his face on the white metallic floor!

As we turn our attention back to Captain America and Guile, our hero Steve Rogers has landed within the vortex of the Street Fighter’s Sonic Hurricane. However, he landed shield first blocking the attack until he surfed to the outskirts of the projectile with no physical damage! Still, now standing just outside of the attack while blocking, the Sonic Hurricane struck his shield a total of twenty times!

Cap didn’t escape the attack unscathed however. His shield is made from a Vibranium-steel alloy and while it can absorb vibrations it still reacted loudly to these waves of sonic energy, louder than a normal shield composed of regular steel would! It conduced visible white rings of loud noise as soon as the shield touched the Sonic Hurricane! Even after the attack was over both men remained screaming while covering their ears!

Guile regained his composure before Cap did and utilized this opportunity to catch his opponent off guard with a spin kick to the ribs! Steve Rogers went down to the ground.

While he was falling, a silver object flew out of his pocket. The Street Fighter turned into one of Apocalypse’s Dark Riders grabbed the object by its chain. Giving the dog tag a read, he uttered the name “Nash…” His eyes raised just a bit. He seemed to recall that name.

“PSY-BLADE!” Spinning around with her Psi-Knife, this uppercut was avoided by Cyclops’ Backward Dash which involved a rolling maneuver.

Cyke wasn’t so lucky when she performed her Ninjitsu move. Using her Mutant psychic powers to fool her fellow X-Man, four Psylockes appeared. One was five feet in front of Cyclops while another was five feet behind his back. Both images of Psylocke had the other two Psylockes floating midair five feet above them.

From here Betsy segwayed into her “PSY-THRUST” Super Art! The Psylocke that was above Cyclops at 10 O’clock turned out to be the real one! She rained down on him at an angle with her Psy-Knife piercing his forehead scrambling his thoughts! For maximum effect, she glided forward riding on waves of light purple energy pushing Cyclops back while still attacking his mind! With a second yell of “PSY-THRUST” while continuing the Super Art attack, she rose through the air with Scott at a 2 O’clock angle!

Still rising in this area that housed quite a high ceiling, the suffering X-Men leader grabbed his teammate’s forearm with both hands and rammed the Psy-Knife even deeper into his forehead! “PSYLOCKE! REACH INTO MY MIND AND SEE WHO YOU REALLY ARE!”

Back to back chapters and this seems like a good point to break off. Check back later for the conclusion of these two fights!


CHAPTER 37: “Brainwash, Rinse and Defeat!” Part 2

Guile remained looking at Nash’s dog tag swinging side to side. If one didn’t know better they’d think the object was hypnotizing him. When in fact, the dog tag was having the reverse effect on him. Helping to wake him up from all the meddling Shadowloo and Apocalypse performed on his mind.

Captain America stood up and was about seven feet away from the confused Street Fighter.

“Guile. This may be difficult to hear, but Nash didn’t perish when he defeated Apocalypse. Apocalypse and Shadowloo managed to save him but they turned him into a brainwashed Cyborg named Agent Shadow to do their bidding. Ultimately, he was able to awake from his brainwashing and save my life along with Chun-Li’s. He sacrificed his life once more to destroy Vega. This time… for good.”

“Nash… My friend… My partner…”

“I had a partner, Bucky Barnes who was also a soldier. He too sacrificed himself to save my life. And for the greater good as well.”

Towards the end of World War II, the Avenger remembered falling in the night sky and seeing his partner Bucky riding on the back of a small booby trapped plane which eventually exploded. The imagery almost looked exactly like what happened to Nash, riding on Vega’s back and destroying both of them and the Island Smasher with the self-destruct mechanism embedded in his body.

Guile thought back to when he first met Nash.

One night in a dense jungle in Asia, Guile was captured behind enemy lines. He was strung up on a pole and being tortured for information. Nash showed up and made short work of the thugs. He managed to free Guile.

“You okay,” questioned Nash. “Yeah, I’ll live. That was unbelievable! Where’d you learn to fight like that?” Nash put the beaten Guile’s arm around his shoulder to help him walk. “Stick with me kid and I’ll show you a thing or two.” (From the story “Charlie’s Black Op.” Featured in the TPB Street Fighter Bonus Stage Vol. 4)

Captain America had a similar memory of when Bucky saved his life.

During World War II, two robots who looked like they were assembled out of pots and boilers and had big swastikas on their chests held Captain America down on his knees one night in a deep forest. The Red Skull pointed a gun at him and said, “Since the dawn of the Reich have we sparred, herr Captain… and at last we have reached the final round. How long have I waited for this moment? Ten years? Fifteen?”

“What’s the difference. You can’t count to either,” joked the captive Captain. Bucky Barnes appeared and took the Red Skull out with a mighty shoulder thrust to his chest! “Oh, funny. Somebody’s been watching a little Jack Benny.” Bucky followed this up by knocking the head off one of the robot’s heads with one punch. Freeing his partner to do the same to the other robot. “You’re just jealous. Why should you always get the good lines?” “Because it’s not ‘Costello and Costello,’ that’s why.” The two continued to quip while they easily defeated any remaining Nazi soldiers. Complementing his sidekick, Steve said “Nice K.O., by the way.” “I had a good teacher.” (From the story ‘American Dream’ featured in the TPB Captain America Red, White & Blue released in 2002).

There was no way both Captain America and Guile could share thoughts on how similar their lost friends were and witness all of the parallels in their experiences. However, they felt it on a subconscious level. Even the brainwashed Guile could feel it, evidenced by the tears that steamed down his face.

Back to Psylocke and Cyclops, while her Psychic Knife was within Cyclops’ mind she started to remember how not too long ago she was in love with Cyclops. In fact, even though she was dating Archangel now there was still a part of her that hasn’t moved on yet.

After the events of Executioner’s song a few months back, the X-Men Wolverine, Colossus, Ice Man and Jubilee were on the X-Men jet, the Blackbird. They were headed to the U.S.S.R. to visit Colossus’ finally. Psylocke was piloting with Cyclops as the co-pilot.

“Cyclops, after everything you’ve been through… was it really necessary for you to come on this journey? Perhaps you’re pushing yourself too hard.” Psylocke touched Cyclops’ left hand while she spoke these words.

“Maybe I just needed to get away from the mansion for a few days Betsy… I think I needed some space. Some time to think.”

“I can imagine. It must be difficult when the woman you love is a telepath.”

“Hmmm what?” For a brief second, Cyclops thought about kissing Psylocke. With her being a telepath just like Jean Grey was who she was just referring to, she could see this vision in his mind.

“Oh… Sorry… I was… just thinking…” “You think too much Scott. You should try doing once in a while.” (X-Men #17, 1992).

Next Psylocke sees another memory which took place a few days later. This vision began with her approaching Cyclops while he was repairing the Blackbird in the hangar of the X-Mansion.

Betsy Braddock was wearing a curve hugging tight blue dress that showed off the top of her ample bosom and long curvaceous legs. unbeknownst to her, Jubilee had dubbed it her ‘I want sex’ outfit. Cyclops was wearing a white tank top, green pants and a red headband tied around his head similar to Ryu’s headband in the Street Fighter II era and beyond. Only the headband Cyclops was wearing housed several black diagonal stripes, almost like a long necktie would.

While working on the Blackbird’s main engine underneath the craft, a bit of machine oil spilled on his left cheek. He got startled and fell off the small latter he was standing on. “Aaagh! Urgh! Mmmrf!” All sound effects he made while falling on top of Psylocke! “Scott,” was all she could express while the two tumbled to the ground.

"Sitting on the floor with her ever lovely accent, the gorgeous Mutant inquired, “Are you hurt?” “Betsy? I… didn’t… know, you um were here… uhm… I slipped… I uhm… I’m sorry…”

With the two still sitting on the floor, Psylocke licked a little bit of machine oil off of his face. “Don’t be sorry, Scott.” Then she gave him an open mouthed kiss on the lips!

Scott pulled away and proclaimed, “Betsy… We shouldn’t…” “Why not, Scott?” “I can’t… I mean I shouldn’t. … This isn’t right Psylocke.” (X-Men #20, 1992)

Here the telepathic Mutant went even deeper into the X-Men leader’s mind and felt his love for Jean Grey. How nervous he felt around her when they first met as teenagers at the X-Men academy. The pain he felt when he believed she died during the Dark Phoenix saga, how happy he was when he found that she didn’t actually perish, and even how he felt a few days after his kiss with Psylocke which was the next memory she saw.

Cyclops had just returned from visiting his grandparents in Alaska. The very first thing he did when he arrived was give Jean Grey a long passionate kiss.

“I’m sorry Jean… For everything. For not having seen how I was hurting you. For leaving…” “Shhh. It’s alright Scott. We don’t have to talk about it.” (X-Men #24, 1992)

Culminating with what was the happiest moment in his life next to his son Nathan (AKA Cable in later years) being born. When Jean Grey agreed to marry him very recently. “Red… I love you. I want to spend the rest of my life with you.” “I do Scott. I do.” (X-Men vs. Street Fighter, Chapter 17)

Since all of these thoughts really only took a few seconds for the telepath to register both were still soaring through the air! Clutching her forearm still, Scott ‘Slim’ Summers spun her around until he held her upside down facing the floor as if he was about to body slam her. From here he shot a gigantic Optic Blast that slammed her to the ground! Similar to one of his throw maneuvers, only he beamed Psylocke all the way down instead of her going straight up.

Once Slim landed on the ground he felt a pain in his stomach. The same pain he felt back when he was fighting Blackheart and Dhalsim with Ryu. Pink dots of energy began to flow inside of him while he held his abdominal area like he suffered from food poisoning.

“My stomach… It’s like it’s gathering energy… Feels like… my desire to awaken Psylocke… manifesting?”

Psylocke stood up and held her head while she screamed in agony! Her mind was conflicted between her brainwashing and the feelings she still had for Cyclops.

Finally she regained some composure, but she went back to being a brainwashed lackey unfortunately. She attacked Scott with a regular “PSY-THRUST!”


Cyclops released a blast which also released all of the Ki that was gathering in his stomach! The thing about this particular Optic Blast was that it was a red vertical line with six points articulated. Yes, it was exactly like the attack Ryu struck Dhalsim with earlier! Cyclops was able to duplicate the attack!

The line of energy struck Psylocke and once it pushed her back until she stood erect the six points attacked her Chackra points! Her body was immersed in a column of red energy! She yelled out in shear agony!

After the blast Cyclops managed to catch her before she fell down. “Betsy! Are you alright,” he asked the woman who looked as if she was fast asleep.

Guile let go of the dog tag and once it fell it made a few clanking noises on the floor.

Much like we witnessed Psylocke go through moments ago, Guile held his head in pain while his mind was in turmoil. “No… Nash… is an enemy of Apocalypse… and Shadowloo… Captain America… as a Dark Rider it is my mission to destroy you!”

“Guile, Apocalypse and Shadowloo are responsible for the death of your best friend Nash. He overcame his brainwashing and I know you can too. With his final breath he asked me to look after you. If you’re anything like my old partner Bucky, heck if you’ve anything like Nash I know you can beat this. In fact, I’m not even going to fight you anymore.”

The Super Soldier rested his shield on the ground and folded his arms.

The howling, confused and angered Street Fighter ran up to the World War II veteran and was about to deliver a vicious right to his face! Cap remained there, unwilling to block or budge! Guile’s fist moved at sonic speed leaving a trail of white energy! Could even Captain America withstand such an earth shattering blow?

That’s not a question that will get answered today! For at the last second, Guile turned the punch onto himself and struck himself in the face! The impact sent Guile flying back until the back of his head struck the large white metallic rectangular garage style door where Apocalypse resided behind! Guile was knocked out cold and remained sitting on the floor seemingly lifeless!

“Psylocke! Are you okay?” Moving her a bit in his arms, Scott shook the British Mutant. “Ugh… yes. Not my first trip to the mind control rodeo. Hopefully my last.” “You overcame it in the end Betsy. That’s all that matters.”

“Not without your help. Scott, I must confess.” “No Betsy, it’s quite alright.” “No… I… have to admit that I was in love with you for quite a spell. In fact, a part of me still is. I, never understood your love for Jean Grey until now. It’s a love I’ve never felt for anyone, not even Warren. My conflicted emotions along with my obvious identity issues are several of the tools Shadowloo used to bend my mind to their will. Cyclops, I am so sorry…”

Scott smiled and said, “There’s nothing to apologize for. I pulled your Psy-Knife deeper into my mind only because I wanted you to see how great an X-Man you are, one of the best. I suppose we did have a few unresolved issues that we never discussed and that bubbled up to the surface. As you saw, with me and Jean Grey things were never easy. Even so, I’m sure you’ll find that happiness someday,” encouraged Cyclops with a smile.

With an even bigger smile he added, “We’ll always have the X-Mansion’s hangar!” Psylocke smiled and gave him a playful wink. “Quite!” Cyclops helped her onto her feet.

Captain America shook the resting Guile on the floor.

“Ugh… It’s okay Captain America. I’m back to my old self again thanks to you. And Nash…”

Captain America stood up, raised his thumb and said “Thumbs up soldier!”

“Heh. So everything you said about Nash is true?”

The Avenger put away his goofy smile and seriously stated, “Yes. He’s gone. Took down Vega with him.” “I see. So all that’s left is to stop Apocalypse.” “I can always use another partner.” Guile grinned and concurred, “Likewise.”

Steve Rogers handed Guile Nash’s dog tag. Guile placed it around his neck, since he currently didn’t have his own he decided to wear Nash’s. With a strong handshake Captain America helped his newfound ally off the floor.

Next Up: Radioactive Bytes for chapter 37. Not too much to say as these chapters are pretty straight forward and the references for the comics mentioned are detailed in parenthesis. So in a week or so. After that, the next time I update it will be Wolverine vs. Sabretooth and Ken vs. Carnage! Lots and lots of blood lol! Thanks for reading and Happy New Year. Be safe!


RADIOACTIVE BYTES: Thought I could skip chapter 36 entirely but there are a few things worth mentioning. So this will cover both 36 and 37 respectively.

During Street Fighter Zero / Alpha 3 Guile is indeed a First Lieutenant which is why he is one here. Guile doesn’t become a Major until Street Fighter II and beyond. It’s only in the Hollywood movie and the American cartoon that he is a Colonel.

Yeah, Cyclops and Psylocke do both say “Come on” during their taunts in Marvel vs. Capcom 2. Just a funny coincidence I had them fight and found that out while I was researching them heh.

About Nash’s first name being Charlie, this is one of those things that gets argued about a lot in the storyline thread of this page. Mainly because in one of those anime intros for SF4, his name is shown to be Charlie Nash. Even though ‘Charlie’ is usually a nickname for Charles or Carlos. Anyway this story doesn’t really convey or deny my feelings about it. I’ve been referring to Nash simply as Nash from the beginning and will continue to do so. That is why ‘Nash’ is the only name Guile reads outloud on the dogtag. However, since I did reference an Udon story with the name ‘Charlie’ if you want to take that as evidence that his first name is Charlie in this world don’t let me stop you.

When Captain America is falling out of the sky and sees Bucky blow up well that’s right before he lands in a body of water, gets frozen for decades and gets awoken by the Avengers in the modern era. I didn’t mention all of that in the story since I felt it was distracting a bit. I also kind of figure after the Hollywood movie, even though Captain America didn’t exactly die the same way that most people would figure it out.

Oh yeah, found many parallels between Nash and Bucky. Freaky how all that worked out. Recently, Bucky even came back to life (also the basis for the next Captain America movie) and Nash returns in MvC1 and MvC2, so ROFL! Still too early in Marvel’s timeframe for me to mention the Bucky / Winter Soldier stuff I feel. Except for saying Cap ‘supposedly’ saw Bucky die heh heh heh.

About the books referenced, all of the X-Men comic quotes can be found in the book ‘X-Men a Skinning of Souls’ I linked earlier.

For just about all the quotes, now and then I omitted stuff, mostly when they started talking about lots of continuity stuff in those comics. They either still say those things or they don’t in this world. You can say for the X-Men stuff Psylocke only pulled out important stuff and not ‘Executioner’s Song wrap up’ speech stuff. Up to the reader honestly. Oh and the writer Fabian Nicieza sure used a lot of ‘–’ for pauses which I swapped for ‘…’ because Capcom, video games and manga like ‘…’ in general. Hey ‘…’ is the only Japanese to English translation no one can screw up! :stuck_out_tongue:

Oh at the end of the Charlie story, he talks about Guile leaving his dogtag behind. Omitted because um yeah, that’s enough about dogtags lol! Still happens in this world if you want.

Pretty cool thing about the Captain America Red, White and Blue book referenced here. Street Fighter comic book author Ken Siu-Chong also has a story in that book called “Why I Fight.” Another reason worth checking it out. The story I did reference from this book “American Dream” was from Mark Waid. I did turn Cap’s line from ‘Nice kayo’ into ‘Nice K.O.’ Because STREET FIGHTER lol!

I went into Dhalsim’s chapter before why there are only six Chackra points from the Ki Blast and not seven and given that it’s Psylocke… OMG BLUSH lol! ^_^;

That whole thing with Psylocke’s crush on Cyclops never had closure in the comics. Because as usual a billion things were going on. So this was a nice way for me to wrap that up.

Oh and while I borrow bits and pieces from those X-Men comics, for now take it as just those bits and pieces happening in both worlds snd not the entirety of those stories. Part of it is just me cherry picking stuff I want MWAHAHA! Another aspect is that certain things Capcom does with Marvel characters make a few of those events difficult to occur. Also stuff Marvel does later… Well probably shouldn’t even start talking about that third Summers brother mess. ^_^;

During those comic book events Cyclops is not sure if his son is Cable or Stryfe. Let’s just say by now he knows it’s Cable, since I established that way back during the X-Men vs. SF fic anyway. Pretty sure he knows in and around the time frame of Fatal Attractions when this story is taking place.

By the by, if you do read that X-Men trade you’ll come across Psylocke’s body double Revanche, which is kind of tricky to explain. If you wonder where she is during this story well she was already killed by the Legacy Virus. Not mentioning it in the story directly because well, Psylocke is stuff is CONFUSING lol but there’s two reasons for me having her bumped off already. I’ll touch upon that again later.

And um yeah, Guile really should have two dogtag chains, both his and Nash’s but he is always depicted in the games as only having one so it’s the same thing here.

Ken vs. Carnage and Wolverine vs. Sabretooth coming in February / March hopefully. Thanks for reading and see you soon!



Had a pretty rough last year which is why this has been on such a long hiatus. Things are looking up now though, bit by bit.

Nash is back in Street Fighter V! Vega/Cape will be back too! We will get a married Spider-Man in May! Spider-Man will join the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Lots of cool stuff happening with Marvel and Capcom!

Anyway the reason I’m posting is because someone made a list of secondary female characters related to SF. Madame Celeste is included, who I included in this fic! You can even see her picture below if you are wondering what she looks like.

I definitely want to start working on the next chapter soon. I’m not going to give you a specific time frame because life’s been to crazy, but sometime in 2015? ^_^; Well see you soon with new material, hopefully! :slight_smile:


CHAPTER 38: “Making A Murderer Lose!” Part 1


These howls from Sabretooth and Wolverine respectively escaped their throats while they were locked in a deadly embrace! Sabretooth held the X-Man’s wrists holding his Adamantium Claws back as the two rolled away on the floor. Leaving a bloody trail since they have been at it for a while now, they were much further than the area where the rest of the combatants were trading blows. Even further from the area where they first landed when the X-Men and Street Fighters arrived at Asteroid M! They were not beyond The Watcher’s line of vision so he was still able to watch and mentally record all. Including Ken’s fight with Carnage.

For appearance’s sake it would seem the two beastly adversaries Wolverine and Sabretooth were at a standstill. Unfortunately, this was not the case for the Street Fighter and the man cloaked with the red and black symbiote over his body, giving him the look of a demonic Spider-Man. Cletus Kassidy, otherwise known as Carnage laughed while dodging all of Ken’s punches and kicks! Moving left and right and hopping back whenever necessary to not get struck with all of the punches and kicks Ken Masters sent his way. He moved at such a rapid pace he left red after images of himself with every dodge! Ken would strike these images but did not land a single blow on Carnage even once! “HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!” Carnage’s maniacal laughter continued.

With his back to the white metallic floor, Wolverine thrusted both feet into his foe’s stomach getting him off of him finally. Victor Creed howled like a beast, ran to the now upright Wolverine and began scratching him in the his torso! Wolverine did the same with his former Weapon X team affiliate! With each claw mark on both of their chests and stomachs, blood would spray out in tremendous diagonal streams of red fluid! The blood would spray the floors, walls the giant window that looked out into space behind them and even the ceiling! At this point the room looked like a red laser light defense grid that a theif would maneuver through to steal a jewel in a heist film!

“HYA! HYA!” Victor belted out these noises while he made a downward strike with his right and an upward strike with his left (his High Punch move) causing the appropriate sprays of blood naturally. The last blow launched Logan into the air a bit, but with a back flip he wound up five feet from his adversary. With a Backward Dash he hopped back another five feet and Sabretooth did his own Backward Dash going two hops back putting and them twenty feet apart. They both jumped fifteen feet in the air towards each other and met in the middle! Their bloody exchange of blows was repeated midair, with diagonal red streams of blood flowing once more! There were much less strikes since both had limited time in the air so each landed five quick blows a piece to the other’s chest and stomach. The final blows involved Sabretooth’s right claw slicing up Wolverine’s right oblique while the Adamantium Claws on Logan’s right claw dug to the right side of Sabretooth’s abdomen. The momentum from these blows pushed them past each other.

Again about twenty feet away, before landing they turned to face one another. The floor was covered with so many puddles of blood now that both slid an extra seven feet back while staring each other down and howling like the actual animals their costumed identities are based on. Rushing at eat each other each step made splashes in the crimson red fluid like a kid with galoshes having fun in a rainstorm!

Looking back on Ken’s fight it turns out he still hasn’t made any progress! Carnage continued to dodge all of his blows and still didn’t even bother to attack just yet! He was clearly toying with him like a cat with a dead mouse!

“HE HO HE HO HE HA! Give it up Blondie! You can’t defeat Uncle Clete by moves you learned fighting in the street! HA HA HA HA HA!”

The exchange ended with his Carnage Crush move! The red and black symbiote around him from his waist up formed a huge neck and mouth, covering the serial killer’s arms in the process. The giant mouth looked like a combination of a snake and a man eating plant. It tried to bite Ken attempting to cut him in half like a low rate Las Vegas magician, only for real!

While not fast enough to land any blows, Ken was at least quick enough to not get hit with this attack. It was avoided with a Backward Dash in the nick of time, leaning back and moving away while leading with his left shoulder. Given the length of the huge snake head before him, there was still enough room for Ryu’s favorite sparring partner to kick it where it’s nose would be, if the faceless form had a nose. Still no luck connecting blows since it quickly retracted leaving Carnage just as gruesome as he was before.

First to draw blood in this fight was the mass murderer who lives to draw blood! Carnage ducked to the ground while four sharp tendrils sprung from his back like the pole of a umbrella held horizontally (Hyper-Venom’s Crouching High Kick Move). Two tendrils struck the Street Fighter in each breast while the other two got his stomach all piercing through his red gi! Four streams of blood flowed out, only not as intense as the fight the fellow Mutants are having at the same time. Ken edged back just enough so the wounds weren’t fatal. He still yelled with both of hid his forearms covering his wounds.

The Spider-Man villain pulled his tendrils back into the symbiote’s visage but placed one tendril in his mouth just so he could taste his opponent’s blood!

After smacking his lips three times, Carnage offered his unwanted critique as if he was ate a wine tasting event.

“Mmmm. Type B I presume. Aged about 25 years? Sweet! MWUAHAHAHAHA!”

Ken’s only response was cupping his hands and beginning to form his famous projectile attack.

Still charging at each other, Wolverine was going with his Forward Dash move which involves a quick sprint while Sabretooth’s Dash involved him hovering above the ground, causing the blood bellow to part like the Red Sea and send diagonal waves at each side of Victor as he floated above, much like what happens on an episode of Dragon Ball Z when characters fly above bodies of water. “BERSERKER CLAW!” The six foot six villain struck the five foot three hero’s upper body leaving a slash that followed the path of the scar Ryu gave Sagat at the end of the first Street Fighter Tournament! Blood gushed out like a fire hydrant opened on a city block on a hot Summer day. Creed didn’t get much of the blood on him since the move involves gliding passed your opponent while they rise up and fall at your black. A lot of Wolverine’s blood wound up on the ceiling which caused a brief rain shower for a spell.

Wolverine landed on his back making a huge splash on the crimson soaked floor. “WILD FANG!” There was no time for the heroic Mutant to act with Apocalypse’s Dark Rider already on top of him for another move! Pouncing on Logan to grab him by his head Creed jams his the pointing finger of his left hand into Logan’s left eye since he was on the floor facing away from the Evil Mutant. Red fluid busted out of the eye socket like a tiny hole being punched in a water balloon! Still holding his dreaded arch nemesis with this one hand and his finger in the eye socket, Sabretooth performs a small hop, spins Wolverine counter clockwise and tosses him so he slams against the wall to complete his Wild Fang move! The hero’s seemingly lifeless body falls to floor of intermingled blood causing another splash.

“HADOUKEN!” Ken shot his fireball which was about the size of Ken himself right at Carnage. Carnage avoided it with a Backward Dash. Crawling on all fours like a cockroach and moving backwards at such a pace that left more red images of himself, he looked like a monster straight out of a horror movie! Ken Masters didn’t put enough power into that projectile, so it wound up disappearing before it even had the chance of hitting Carnage.

The reason the Martial Artist didn’t put all his eggs in that Hadouken basket was because he was ready for another move just in case that strike missed! Jumping high in the air but towards the red and black villain’s direction, he fired off a one handed Aerial “HADOUKEN!” The fireball came right at Carnage at a seven o’clock angle. With a Forward Dash Carnage avoided that blast too, which was an exact reversal of his Backward Dash. Leaving after images and crawling forward in a straight line.

Ken performed an Aerial Tatsumski Senpuu Kyaku sans saying the name of the move. This move did not travel forward or at an angle which is sometimes the case. Ken just spun around with his leg stretched out while falling to the floor. This was in part to ease his landing but also to provide some measure of defense if Carnage decided to leap up and attack him in the air. However, the speedy Carnage wound up just below him in time to perform his own version of a Web Throw! Unlike Spider-Man and Venom he wasn’t big on using webs however. From the top of his right hand he fired a rope of red and black coloring, making it an extension of his symbiote suit. The line went straight up and wrapped around the ankle of the foot Ken had pointing straight down in the midst of his Hurricane Kick. The symbiote rope had lots of little thorns around it like barb wire. The impact caused Ken to scream while blood gushed out of his foot like a sprinkler! Since it’s not exactly a version of the Web Throw without an actual throw you can guess what happened next! Carnage slammed the Ansatsuken Practitioner hard against the metallic floor, once to his left and then to his right! Screaming in agony both times, Ken slammed to the floor and rolled about twenty feet away, remaining on the floor in a lot of pain.

“HA HA HA HA! You don’t stand against me pretty boy! What is it that they say in the letters pages of those comic books the kiddies are reading these days? Oh I know! MAKE MINE MURDER! HEH HA HEH HA HEH HA HA!”

Carnage jumped up to the ceiling to perform a Kuuchu Dash. This involved shoving his claws into the ceiling to help spring himself forward. Still laughing like the lunatic he is, Carnage was ready to land on Ken so he could tear him to shreds.

Back to back chapters. Check back either later today or tomorrow for the conclusion of these two fights!


CHAPTER 39: “Making A Murderer Lose!” Part 2

Wolverine was propping himself up with his right elbow, laying there in a pool of blood. Sabretooth couldn’t help but stand over him and gloat since his enemy was down on the floor long enough.

“HAHAHAHAHA! You don’t have the stones to go up against me dog boy. Those X-Wussies have made you two soft. I went easy on your blonde girlfriend Ken before, but if he manages ta survive his fight with Carnage I’m gonna carve him up like a Thanksgivin’ turkey and use your intestines as stuffin’! HAHAHAHAHAHA!”

Logan’s eye fully healed and he wiped away some of the excess blood. Since Sabretooth cut a hole in the outfit, his blue pupil was visible on his left while his right eye remained covered and looked entirely white thanks to his mask. Both of the torso areas of their costumes had several rips and tears. No wounds at this point since both of them had amazing Healing Factors that took care of all of their injuries.

Victor Creed stood there still laughing at his own joke, even laughing over Logan’s response.

“Remember a while ago when we were just fightin’ an’ you weren’t flappin’ your damn gums? Good times. TORNADO CLAW!”

This wasn’t his regular Tornado Claw uppercut since Wolverine only had the claw over his right finger extended and it only landed one blow. It chopped off the tip of Sabretooth’s tongue while he was laughing! That same laugh quickly turned into a scream with the blood spraying out from his tongue like a fire hose and hitting the wall!

Thanks to his Tornado Claw, Logan was rising above his mortal enemy. He struck his head with a kick that resembles Ryu and Ken’s Tatsumaki Senpuu Kyaku, but only lands one blow (Wolverine’s Aerial High Kick). Once he landed on the floor the X-Man declared, “And I got your Thanksgivin’ carvin’ right here bub! BERSERKER BARRAGE!”

Our Adamantium laced hero unleashed his favorite go to move while slicing up Sabretooth’s body and landing rapid blows in every area minus Sabretooth’s face! The blood that gushed out of the assassin for hire’s body went flowing all over our favorite canuckle head almost as if he fell into a geyser!

With his tongue already healed back to normal and the rest of his body already on the mend since his Healing Factor works even faster than Wolverine’s, the Evil Mutant yelled “HYA! HYA,” landing two claw strikes on Wolverine’s chest followed quickly to a punch to his gut (Sabretooth’s Low Punch tapped three times). From here he quickly transitioned into his Berserker Claw X Super Art! Howling “HYA” just before initiating the attack and each time with every strike, Victor dashed passed Wolverine. The first time slashing the left side of his jugular! With the second dash and slash he caught the right side of his rib cage! The third slice caught his right thigh, and the final slash left ten diagonal claw slashes on Logan’s back thanks to Creed’s claws! Needless to say blood sprayed out of Wolverine from every wound! He fell face first into a pool of blood yet again, but this time it was mostly of his own blood alone! He stayed on the floor with his mouth wide open. The one blue pupil we could see was no longer visible since it rolled back into his head!

Sabretooth pulled a flask from his right pocket and had himself some whiskey while Wolverine seemed to remain their unconscious. Since he was a sloppy drinker he chugged back with a bit of alcohol trickling down from the bottom side of his left lip. All of his wounds were healed as good as new and he was just fine. The difference between Sabretooth and Wolverine is that Wolverine’s Healing Factor keeps the Adamantium in his body from killing him thanks to metallic poisoning. With it working overtime to perform that task it hinders his ability. With no Adamantium, Sabretooth doesn’t have that problem. So he heals up extremely fast no matter how serious some of his wounds are.

Tossing away the empty flask, he stated “Aaah, that hit the spot.” Looking at his down opponent, he continued, “How long we been fightin’ each other shortstop? Since the Weapon X days? Too long, I’m thinkin’. I’m ending this now, pipsqueak! Rest easy in Hell knowin’ that everyone you’ve ever loved will be joinin’ you soon! You know that redhead that is dating the boy scout an’ won’t give you the time of day? Apocalypse has her in a glass jar right now. Easy pickin’s. An’ even if she manages to get out, you know my little assistant, Birdy? She ain’t even gotta beat her. Just use her Psychic powers ta distract Jean Grey long enough for me ta make the rest of her body match the color of her hair! HAHAHAHAHAHA!”

This taunt caused Wolverine to snap out of it with his left pupil setting back into place. Only the eye wasn’t blue. It was glowing red! Streams of diagonal flames rose from the floor all around our hero! He rose up and howled like a demon from hell! Threatening Jean Grey was a big mistake, because Wolverine was now in full Berserker Rage mode!

“HAHAHAHAHA! THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKIN’ 'BOUT! LET’S FINISH THIS RUNT!” Sabretooth held his claws to his sides and each one had an orange colored sparkle on each end!

“ROOAOUOWRRR LET’S GO! RRRROARRRR!” This wild cavemanish response was all he could muster as the eternal rivals rush towards each other to end their feud once and for all!

Wolverine struck him with his deadly Fatal Claw Move! His Adamantium Claws dug deep into Sabretooth’s body and left a giant letter X of blood pouring out of Creed! And that wasn’t all! The blow made both of them move in the air at a two o’clock angle, and the enraged Wolverine continued to attack Sabretooth’s fresh wounds with a tornado claw! As he attacked intestines and organs flew out of Sabretooth’s body, following the bloody path of the gigantic X! This all happened so fast Victor didn’t even have time to scream! After five of these deathly Tornado Claw spins Wolverine retracted all of his claws except one, the middle claw on his right fist. He rammed that claw inside the now gaping hole in Sabretooth’s body and shoved that claw through his throat and right into Sabretooth’s brain while screaming “UP YOURS CREED!” A red light emerging from the fury of Wolverine’s berserker rage eclipsed the entire area they were fighting in!

Before falling back down to the floor Wolverine shoved Sabretooth’s seemingly lifeless corpse the way a samurai whips his sword to remove blood from it after a fight. Creed’s mutilated body splashed onto the floor before Wolverine landed down. With Sabretooth’s accelerated Healing Factor it was hard to tell how much damage he could heal from. The slightly calmer Wolverine ripped his own mask off since most of his outfit was in taters and he was tired of the stupid thing anyway. The top portion was so shredded that ripping the mask off caused the rest of it to fall away and exposed his hairy back and chest. Wolverine unleashed all six claws and took a step toward Sabretooth so he could finish the job.

The only thing that stopped him from cutting Sabretooth’s head clean off was that he smelled a familiar sent. Logan’s snarled and spoke to what may have been Sabretooth’s corpse. “If you manage to survive this, we’ll settle things another time Creed.” Logan started running back to where the rest of the X-Men and Street Fighters were battling. Coincidentally following the path of blood Wolverine and Sabretooth laid out when they rolled into this area, like a twisted variant of the yellow brick road in The Wizard of Oz.

“SHORYUKEN!” While Ken was not having any luck tagging Carnage with any blows before, it wasn’t so easy for Carnage to avoid a hit while he was falling towards Ken so he caught a fiery punch to his face! This blow had an even greater impact than usual. It caused Carnage’s entire body to be set on fire! He erupted in flames and the symbiote began to peel off of him in several areas, to the extent that you could see the red haired Cletus Kassidy himself underneath!

Ken was stunned that he caused that much damage from one hit, until he recalled the words Spider-Man spoke to him moments ago.

“Ken, be careful with Carnage. He’s weak against fire, loud noise and electricity if it helps.”

“Heh. I thought flames from Ki would work just as well, but not this well! You might want to stop, drop and roll cancel there buddy!”

The homicidal maniac was already rolling on the floor when Ken said these words to douse the flames. He arose when they were gone, and despite a bit of smoke he was raring to go!

“You got in a lucky shot punk! Might as well call yourself Operation 'cuz I’m going full Milton Bradley on your ass!”

The claws on Carnage’s fingers extended to the foot long blades and he quickly ran towards Ken leaving red after images in his wake! He began slicing Ken’s chest with blood flying everywhere, as if we were still witnessing the Wolverine and Sabretooth battle! Laughing while slicing and being way too overconfident, the deadly serial killer lets up just enough to allow Ken to ram his foot into Carnage’s chest to perform his Throw Maneuver. Grabbing Carnage from here, rolling with him once and then thrusting his leg to push him away! Next, Ken quickly rose up and launched a fiery red “HADOUKEN,” at Carnage’s upside down body before he hit the floor! This projectile that was the same size as Carnage himself and it set him ablaze yet again! Cletus screamed in agony and rolled on the floor while this time the symbiote almost completely vanished.

Ken assumed his normal fighting stance with one fist near his and his other arm to his side. He used this short time frame of Carnage rolling around in agony to gather his thoughts.

“I may get lucky with a few fiery attacks here and there but the blows he lands are all potentially lethal. To win this match I’ll have to match his speed, even if it’s just for a little while. That Force Field I erected earlier when I was fighting Omega Red. Maybe…”

While thinking this a red Force Field formed around his body like a giant bubble. It shrank closer until formed a thin red layer around his skin, much like it did during his fight with Omega Red.

“This Field around my body, maybe I can use it temporarily to help increase my speed. I can’t expend that much Ki for a long period. I have to concentrate and remain perfectly still until the time is right.”

With those thoughts he let loose a bit more Ki around himself and stood motionless. He wasn’t even breathing or blinking. The thin red aura covering his body took on a light blue hue instead.

Carnage finally doused the flames around him and faced his enemy! “BLAST IT ALL! You damn Martial Artists are annoying as hell! What are you doing now remaining all still like? Don’t tell me let me guess. Haters gonna hate and meditaters gonna meditate! Well I got some Eastern philosophy for your Hong Kong Phooey ass! Confucius say it is good if boy meet girl in park. But it is better if boy park meat in girl! HA HA HA HA HA HA!”

Several red and black triangle spikes fired from Carnage’s body while he was still laughing! There were so many it seemed there were hundreds of them! They all bounced right off the protective blue field around Ken’s body! He still didn’t move a single muscle. A blade came right at his left eye and bounced off without him even blinking once!

All of the spikes slithered back into Carnage’s body like snakes while he spoke. “DAMN IT! Well of course anything that looks like a ninja star attack isn’t gonna work on a Chuck Norris wannabe. You’ve probably seen every ninja movie a thousand times you stinking weaboo. Got hentai? Whatevs. After this move let’s see if that Force Field holds and if you can stay blue, ponytail boy! BWUAHAHAHAHAHAHA!”

Carnage performed his Death Bite Super Art! His symbiote extended before him like a long shadow with whirlwinds of symbiote half rings of goo like jump ropes. Each giant strand housed deadly mouths with fangs ready to devour the Street Fighter!

Red waves of Ken’s Ki started moving about the blue Force Field turning it purple. And this is when Ken started to move at a speed that was even faster than Carnage’s! He left several purple after image shadows of himself as he ran through the thick symbiote ropes causing them to splash like puddles of water! As he was getting closer Carnage quickly extended his claws once more and ran towards him leaving red after images, but Ken was too fast for him! He punched and kicked the villain about thirty times at super speed with each blow causing the symbiote to burn with purple flames! “AAAAAAAH!” All Carnage could do was yell as each blow further damaged his body! For the last six blows that only lasted less than a millisecond, the Street Fighter rapidly landed a kick to the knee, another kick to the face, a full spin kick to his ribs, a quick jab to the neck, a standing uppercut to his chin and a powerful right punch to his face! With this punch a purple light washed over the two covering Carnage’s entire body with flames and burning the symbiote right off of him!

Cletus Kassidy fell to floor with his eyes closed. With the exception of the red hair of his hair and eyebrows there wasn’t a single hair on his thin frame. He was completely naked with the exception of his boxer shorts.

Ken dropped to one knee since that attack took a lot out of him. Breathing heavily for a few seconds, he finally spoke to himself.

"Heh. Awesome attack. Wait 'til I show Ryu. I wonder what I should call it. An Original Combo? A Custom Combo? Hmm. Guess I’ll go with one of those names until I think of something better.

Ken fired off a one handed small red fireball at the remaining taters of the symbiote on the floor, which now resembled a tattered piece of cloth. He turned away and didn’t bother to watch it burn to smithereens.
