Earlier today, Capcom Fighters showcased the three upcoming DLC characters headed to Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite. The live stream featured a breakdown of each, as well as ample match footage featuring the new combatants.

As we often do, we're going to recap what we saw for those who may not have had the opportunity to check out the full broadcast.

These characters have a wealth of information behind them, so we're going to be devoting an article to each one of their recaps. We kick things off with Winter Soldier.

Winter Soldier fights using firearms and powerful punches. He can fight from a distance, or close in on the opponent with armored attacks and his invincible stance (which we'll detail later in this story).

For zoning, this character has an assault rifle special move. It is performed by inputting quarter-circle-forward + kick, and you can fire it horizontally across the screen, up-forward for anti-air, or while in the air.

You can reflect it back by using push block, however.

Performing quarter-circle-back + kick throws a grenade that can bounce off of walls. The different strengths of kick change the trajectory of these bombs, and they can be used to create some interesting mix ups.

One of his powerful punch attacks lies in this special move. The light version performs a double strike that puts the opponent into a crumple state and allows Winter Soldier to combo after. The heavy version is a large single strike that has armor.

Another punch special move is more akin to a Dragon Punch-type attack. It is performed by inputting quarter-circle-back + punch.

The light version is fairly fast, while the heavy version has a bit more start up, but bounces the opponent off of the wall allowing for a follow up.

Things get really interesting when Winter Soldier launches into the stance in which he holds his arm out and stops oncoming attacks. It makes him impervious to damage from attacks that strike above his knees, and he can walk through these attacks while not taking any damage (not even red health).

During this stance, Winter Soldier has two follow up attacks, and can also fire his guns and throw grenades.

This fighter also comes equipped with several command normals that include a pistol shot, a dagger strike, and a heavy kick in the air.

Here is a look at both of Winter Soldier's level 1 hyper combos and his level 3.

And lastly, and example combo showing some of what Winter Soldier can do solo.

Winter Soldier, as well as Venom and Black Widow, join Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite on December 5th.
