What I’d like to see in the second story mode:
[details=Spoiler]After the destruction left by the black moons, the United States and NYC in particular are left in chaos, with crime rates increasing dramatically, civil unrest skyrocketing, government funds meant for reform being spent repairing ASF damages, etc. A charismatic but somewhat mysterious figure named G rises from the ashes and promises to lead the US and NYC out of this crisis, should he be voted president during the upcoming elections.
Cody, current mayor of the now safer and very influential Metro City, is suspicious of G. In order to get this powerful, potential political opponent out of his hair, G secretly regathers the mad gear gang and beings sponsoring their activities. Cody now finds himself with his hands full dealing with the new mad gear (lead by Abigail), which is destroying the stability he had managed to bring to Metro City.
With Cody preoccupied in Metro City, Guile, Chun-Li and Cammy are left to investigate on G. While she is away, Chun-Li entrusts Rashid and Azam with taking care of Li-Fen. Urien, needing Li-Fen’s hacking skills for the G-project, takes advantage of Chun’s absence and sends hoards of #11s/12s to kidnap Li-Fen. Rashid manages to hold them off, but as more swarms keep coming every day, he is forced to take Li-Fen and continue guarding her on-the-run.
Ed creates Neo Shadaloo but finds himself still haunted by phantom Bison every day. Falke is particularly concerned for him. After Ed realizes that the only other host body Bison would accept is Ryu’s, he and Neo Shadaloo shift their priorities to kidnapping Ryu and giving his body to Bison. Dhalsim senses this and warns Ryu. The two, later joined by Ken, begin traveling/training together to make sure Ryu isn’t taken, but during their travels, they run into Sagat. He and Ryu have a dramatic rematch. After, Sagat is informed of Neo Shadaloo’s hunt for Ryu and joins Ken and Dhalsim in keeping Ryu safe while training/travelling.
Karin wants to join the other world warriors in their endeavors, but Shibasaki informs her that the Kanzuki family took a huge economic hit after sacrificing so much money and so many resources to stop the black moons, so she should sit this one out. Bored, she decides to organize/host a martial arts tournament and automatically enters herself and her bodyguards (Ibuki and Birde) in the competition. Zeku enters in hopes to impress Karin enough to hire him, as well as to spread awareness of his new style/clan. Sakura enters, hoping to win the large cash prize and use those funds to keep her stable while she quits her job at the arcade to travel the world fighting strong opponents. Laura enters to advertise Matsuda jujitsu. Blanka enters for the cash, since the mascot thing hasn’t really worked out. Mika and Zangief join because Muscle Spirit I guess?
Kolin begins recruiting more Illuminati members. She manages to convince Juri to join after the events of ASF proved entertaining enough for her (as well as with the promise of a newer Feng Shui Engine). Vega joins after finding out about the Twelve experiments, which he thinks have potential to keep his body young forever. The Illumnati gladly welcomes him, wanting his assassin/espionage skills, as well as the SIN data he stole at the end of SF4. Balrog feels empty after loosing Ed, so he accepts an uncharacteristically low bribe to join. Vega and Juri are sent to retrieve Ryu, who caught Gill’s eye after defeating Bison.
Alex begins his search for Tom after he goes missing (at the hands of the Illuminati, unbeknownst to Alex). The Illuminati takes note of this threat, so Balrog is sent to take him out.

[*] G vs Chun-Li/Guile/Cammy - Good guys win and take G down
