Universe: Marvel, Hulk, Avengers
First Appearance: SAVAGE SHE-HULK #1
Real Name: Jennifer Walters
Brief Bio: After receiving an emergency blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner, a.k.a. The Incredible Hulk, Jennifer Walter's blood became gamma-fied, allowing her to transform into the all-new Jade Giantess, the Sensational She-Hulk! A lawyer by trade, she fights evil in and out of the courtroom, on Earth and into the farthest reaches of the cosmos. When she’s not throwing down with the Titania or the remaining members of the Intelligentsia, she likes to shop, party and enjoy all the little perks that come with being an Avenger.
Powers: Ms. Walters has super-strength, speed, endurance and durability when Hulked out.
Play Style: Jen has a lot of different options out of her Runner’s Start stance. She can slide under projectiles and OTG, bounce off the wall to avoid hypers, punish, and plenty of other mix-up attacks. She has an anti-air hyper which is great in surprising those chronic jumpers, but her real strength lies in her assortment of unblockable instant-stun command grabs. Landing one of those grabs sets you up for huge damage, and She-Hulk has the power to really bring the hurt.

Universe: Capcom, Bionic Commando
First Appearance: "Bionic Commando"
Real Name: Nathan "Rad" Spencer
Brief Bio: Working as a soldier for the FSA against the Imperialists was Spencer’s life. He was even celebrated as a hero for his excellent work in the field. However, public opinion of the bionically-enhanced began to sour, and soon even sporting bionic technology was against the law. Framed and imprisoned by a military tribunal, Spencer was freed and given a second chance at life, as long as he could bring down a new group of terrorists known only as BioReign.
Powers: Spencer has enhanced strength and durability due to his cyborg nature. His bionic arm packs a serious punch, can be used to travel quickly using the extendable hand as a grappler, and can be used in combat to grab enemies.
Play Style: Spencer can use his bionic arm to swing around the screen, get in close and to escape from sticky situations. The Wire Grapple, on hit, pulls the enemy in for some meaty combos as well as some quick and dirty damage utilizing his easily comboable Bionic Lancer hyper. He also has an unblockable command grab and his Wire Grapple can be used in the air after a combo to OTG, relaunch and reset for some truly impressive beatdowns.
