Woah, Captain Commando is REALLY popular: Here are the Capcom characters EventHubs readers would like to see return if we got Marvel vs. Capcom 4

Updated: The results are in! To see how EventHubs readers voted, be sure to hit the jump.

Earlier: While we're aware that Marvel vs. Capcom 4 seems like a long-shot at best (though the same was said of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 before its reveal), it's still fun to think of what might become if such a project happened.

As such, we've made two polls (one for Marvel, one for Capcom), where we ask you, our readers, which characters you would like to see RETURN if the franchise got a new installment.

Although Capcom might not have as many viable choices as Marvel, there's still a plethora of characters to choose from, from a huge variety of different franchises. As such, we've limited it only to characters who were in the previous games, leaving you to vote on who you'd like to see make a comeback if we got MvC4.

You can find the full poll below, where you may choose up to 3 different characters, in keeping with the series' team spirit, you'd like to see return from Capcom's side of the cast.

If Marvel vs. Capcom 4 happened, what brand new characters would we like to see? Here's our picks

As has been customary for the last few weeks, me and Steven "Dreamking" Chavez have had a chat about what could have been, fighting game-wise.

This time, our thoughts went to Marvel vs. Capcom 4, and what a game like that might be. We didn't put any specific limitations on us between how many Marvel or how many Capcom characters we needed to pick, but instead just focused in on what characters we'd like to see in a sequel. What we did make sure of, however, was to not include any characters who have already been in a Marvel vs. Capcom game

This list may seem a bit villain-heavy, but that's largely because the game itself was pretty villain-light. Check out our picks below.

Only two characters were on an EVO victory team more than once in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 - Notable amount of character diversity among champions

One thing that's often said regarding Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 and its lack of post-game support (due to licensing issues between Capcom and Marvel) is that there are few viable characters, and it's boring to see the same teams over and over again.

While this is certainly a valid complaint, it would appear that the statistics simply do not support it, as the EVO championship teams have shown a wide array of diversity throughout the years, with only two characters - Dr. Doom and Vergil - appearing more than once in a winning team.

This was brought to our attention here at EventHubs through a tweeted image from PermaVermin. You can check out said image here. It must be noted that the image is slightly flawed as its creator originally thought that Flocker used Dante, not Vergil, to win EVO, but besides that it checks out.

Which Marvel characters would EventHubs readers like to see most if Marvel vs. Capcom 4 happens? See our poll results here

Update: Voting has ended, and you can see the final results after the jump.

Earlier: While we're aware that Marvel vs. Capcom 4 seems like a long-shot at best (though the same was said of Marvel vs. Capcom 3 before its reveal), it's still fun to think of what might become if such a project happened.

As such, we've made two polls (one for Marvel, one for Capcom), where we ask you, our readers, which characters you would like to see RETURN if the franchise got a new installment.

With how incredibly vast Marvel's library of characters is, there's just no way we could make a poll which contained all feasible choices, which is why decided to focus on doing it this way instead.

'I need backup!' - Captain America calls in Bucky in this amazing re-imagining of Civil War using Marvel vs. Capcom 3 voice lines and sound effects

Captain America: Civil War hit theaters earlier this year and was a great success, but here's a new take on some of the biggest fighting scenes from the film that should appeal to fighting game fans worldwide.

Frob Man made the amazing decision to put Marvel vs. Capcom 3 voice lines and sound effects to his own cut of various fight scenes from the movie - entitled Iron Man vs. Captain America: Clash of Super Heroes - and it honestly fits amazingly well.

If you ever enjoyed Marvel vs. Capcom 3, this video is not one you'll want to miss. Check it out below.

A party cruise ship, Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 sets, DJ spinning Fetty Wap: No, this isn't a fever dream; it really happened

Okay, let me try to explain this...

Over the weekend, the Pre-New York Comic Con cosplay cruise event took place. This was essentially a huge party on a boat with drinks, dancing, and an Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 set up, apparently.

Three FGC players: Dragongod, Javibaby, and Krispy were all in attendance, and recently uploaded a video on Facebook that shows their experience at the event.

Most of the video consists of UMvC3 play, but we do get a look at the nighttime New York cityscape, the cruise ship, and get to hear some of the tracks spun by the DJ in the background.

Of all the different places fighting games have been played, I'd say party cruise ship is up there as one of the coolest.

The video clocks in at a little over 40 minutes long, but you can find the UMvC3 footage beginning at 17:38. Kidding, it actually starts at around 6:30. Check it out after the jump.

Bionic Arm! Bionic Arm! Bionic... seriously?! When Combofiend and MarlinPie faced off in an UMvC3 first-to-10 at SCR 2013 - FGC Throwback Thursday

Since competitive fighting games have reached higher levels of popularity as of late, and we have a slew of fresh players who just recently joined the scene, we thought it'd be fun to relive some amazing moments in FGC history by way of "Throwback Thursday."

With so many potential moments to choose from, we are calling upon you, the EventHubs reader, to help us choose what throwback should get posted next. To participate, either link up a classic moment in FGC history below in our comments section, or send it out on Twitter and use the hashtag "#FGCTBT."

Each week, we'll select one throwback to highlight, and will give you a shout out in our story. This week's #FGCTBT comes to us courtesy of Sir_Kenjamin!

Not long after Peter "Combofiend" Rosas was hired by Capcom as their resident FGC expert, the former tournament player returned to the stage to battle it out with Marvel vs. Capcom 3 superstar BT|MarlinPie. These two warriors are easily some of the best the MvC3 series has ever seen, and these two titans clashed at SoCal Regionals 2013 in an Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 first-to-10 exhibition set.

Combofiend's use of Spencer's Bionic Arm hyper combo is legendary within the FGC, due to the amazing comeback he made against Marn at Final Round 14 using the Bionic Commando. Onlookers were wondering if Rosas had lost his edge in fighting games at the time, and anxiously awaited the return of the Bionic Arm. He did not disappoint...

The Kinetiquettes' new statue set shine their own light on the Sons of Sparda family reunion

The Kinetiquettes have been preparing the Sons of Sparda for the spotlight for quite some time now, and their Dante and Vergil statues are finally ready to preorder.

Dante and Vergil come with both their human and devil trigger forms, and even interlock with one another to make a full diorama. The price point for these statues is pretty steep, as just one of the two brothers will set you back $599 USD.

For those that can swing it, preorders are open until September 30th. The rest of us can adore the statues from afar through these photos:
