The Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 modding community has been making major waves as of late. What began as the addition of new characters, albeit as fairly janky palette swaps and re-used animations, is now becoming more and more polished every time we see something new pop up.

A mod pack from tabs has been released this week that introduces a whopping 20 characters into the now 10-year-old fighting game, and one of these new contenders is none other than Street Fighter 5's own Rashid.

These custom fighters occupy certain color slots for already existing combatants, but add new moves, traits, and animations to them. The unique characters include:

• Shadow Lady (Chun-Li Color 5 and 6)
• Evil Ryu (Ryu ALT Color)
• Lilith (Morrigan Color 6)
• Orange Hulk (Hulk Color 2)
• Scarlet Spider (Spider-Man Color 6)
• All New Wolverine (X-23 Color 2)
• S.T.A.R.S. Wesker (Wesker ALT Color)
• Red She-Huilk (She Hulk Color 5)
• Phoenix & Maya (Phoenix Wright Color 6)
• Captain Marvel (Nova ALT Color and Color 2)
• MVC2 Sentinel (Sentinel Color 6)
• Shin Akuma (Akuma Color 4)
• Chris (S.T.A.R.S) (Chris ALT Color)
• Ken (Iron Fist ALT and Color 3)
• Cyclops (C. Viper Color 3 and ALT)
• Jean Grey (Phoenix ALT)
• DMC 1 Dante (Dante ALT)
• Thanos (Haggar Color 3 and 5)
• Psylocke (Felicia Color 5 and ALT)
• Rashid (V. Joe Color 5 and 6)

Tabs has released a full trailer showcasing each of these new contenders and what they're capable of. There is also a list of changes and specifics detailing everything that comes with this patch.

Rashid certainly acts as the turbulent wind here in UMvC3, and comes equipped with many of his moves from Street Fighter 5. Fans always felt like Rashid acted a lot like a Marvel vs. Capcom character in SF5 anyway, and here we have that idea realized — and it looks to be a perfect fit.

We have seen a handful of other characters, such as Urien, modded into UMvC3 recently, however, he is not included here in this patch. The Urien mod actually comes from Malamander, but you should be able to add him in along with this patch for even more fresh Marvel goodness.
