Phoenix To Join MvC3. In Other news: obscure blogger posts retraction

Okay, so Jean Grey is now joining the fight in Marvel vs Capcom 3, thus rendering the roster I've been using false. I will go so far as to say that the Marvel side is now more or less debunked, but still hold out hope that most of the Capcom side remains true. I won't hold my breath for Red Arremer now, though. I saw Hagger, I know he'll be announced, as will Mega Man.

This will of course be Jean Grey's first appearance in the MvC franchise, and she will be bringing along both of her split personalities. It seems that you can heal herself with one of her super moves, and will turn into the more violent, and presumably stronger, Dark Phoenix personality when her health runs out. Healing seems to be limited to the same you would get for tagging out, only a lot quicker. It is seems that you need to have a full special gauge to perform the transition to Dark Phoenix, who's health gradually drains fairly quickly. Her counterpart from the Capcom has yet to be revealed, though we can probably bet on it being within the next week. As for who will will out the rest of the Marvel side, I can't say for now, all things considered. I'll still hold out hope for Ms. Marvel and perhaps Howard the Duck, but I am now less willing to bet money on this. Granted, I did once give that roster a mulligan for the Marvel side, one to counteract Strider being deconfirmed, so maybe this is it, and we'll find out who she replaced, my bet being Spider-Woman.
-edit- Alright, We've got our Capcom counterpart in the form of The Mayor of Metro City (he's coming to take your life) Mike Haggar.

He obviously plays like Zangief of Street Fighter fame, which is only natural considering their relation. Mike trained Zangief's friend Aleksy Zalazof in Saturday Night Slam Masters. They've also traded moves back and forth through out the years,eventually lending some moves to Frank West of Dead Rising fame. What this means for Zangief's chances of getting in to MvC3, I can't say. At best they're not good. As for Frank West, he's still got a chance though. In conclusion, I will leave you with this.
