Updated: Community news roundup for September 4th Update: A few more notes about Marvel vs. Capcom 3 from PAX West were added to this story.

Here's a look at a few notable things happening in the Capcom fighting game community.
• Seth Killian said that there's a character on the Marvel side for MvC3 that is one of the craziest things ever put into a Capcom fighting game. He added that this character would be broken except the designers figured out a clever way of implementing things. This was submitted by Darts.

• Seth pointed out that fans should take the MvC3 silhouettes with a grain of salt because some of the characters may not be in the game anymore. The most notable silhouettes to date have presumably been for Frank West and C. Viper, although a lot of people have also claimed to have spotted Spider-man.

• Killian confirmed that Mega Man X would NOT be in Marvel vs. Capcom 3. This doesn't rule out another version of Mega Man being in the game, though.

• One of the best SSF4 Akuma players on the planet, Tokido, shows you how to get into and stay in the Vortex in real matches against top competition. Video by 0ShinAkuma0.

• Shadowloo.com posted a nice set of clips demonstrating how to avoid chip damage against Blanka's Ultra 2 in SSF4 — for almost the entire cast.

• Vesper Arcade uploaded another SSF4 tutorial. This one focuses on input methods for charge characters and some other tricks of the trade.

• MoD1ns1d3 created a SSF4 Guile combo video involving his shades (glasses) move, not practical by any means, but entertaining.

• ComputerandVideoGames has a solid introduction to the current Marvel vs. Capcom 3 roster. If you're unfamiliar with some of the announced cast members, there's a little bit about each fighter, except for Viewtiful Joe and Dormammu.
