Fighter Name: Felicia
Real Name: Felicia
Universe: Capcom, Darkstalkers
First Appearance: "Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors"
Marvel/Capcom Game Appearances: "Marvel vs. Capcom 2"
Citizenship: USA
Brief Bio: An orphan raised by nuns, Felicia achieved a bit of fame as a pop singer after leaving the orphanage. But her mettle was truly tested when the evil Pyron attempted to destroy the world. Banding together with other Darkstalkers, the blue-haired catwoman helped stop the tyrant's domination. With the world saved, Felicia stepped back from the spotlight and became a nun, founding her own orphanage known as the "Felicity House."
Powers: Being that Felicia is a catwoman she has increased strength, endurance and agility, beyond the levels of normal humans. Not only that, but her friends are always willing to help her out in a fight.
Special Moves: Rolling Buckler, Sand Splash, Cat Spike, Delta Kick, Hell Cat, Dancing Flash, Hyper Sand Splash, Please Help Me
Quote: "I hope I've taught you how to treat a lady. Next time I'll have to get rough."

 
Fighter Name: Sabretooth
Real Name: Victor Creed
Universe: Marvel, X-Men
First Appearance: IRON FIST #14
Marvel/Capcom Game Appearances: "X-Men vs. Street Fighter," "Marvel vs. Capcom 2"
Citizenship: Multiple Countries
Brief Bio: Maniacal, psychotic, unrepentant and brutal, these are all words that describe Victor Creed, the man also known as Sabretooth. If Wolverine can be used as a baseline for ferocity, then Victor Creed is simply off the charts—in a very bad way. While Logan has learned to rein in his animal side, Sabretooth relishes the release of his inner beast. Creed has used his feral and ferocious mutant powers to work for the government and as a mercenary, but his favorite pastime, undoubtedly, is hunting Wolverine. Blood and fur fly whenever the two cross claws and since they both possess a healing factor, you can rest assured they'll keep fighting until the cows come home. You're not going to find many mutants more violent than Sabretooth and why would you want to anyway?
Powers: Sabretooth is a lot like his arch-rival Wolverine in the powers department. He has an accelerated factor, enhanced senses, super strength, endurance, agility and reflexes. He also has an unbreakable skeleton thanks to an adamantium infusion and unbreakable, razor-sharp claws.
Special Moves: Berserker Claw, Wild Fang, Birdie Call, Hyper Berserker Claw, Berserker Claw X, Hyper Birdie Call
Quote: "You cannot stop the beast inside of me!"

Because it's obvious that most of you have never played the game. Other than Battlecataclysmi it seems like you are just going off what you know of the characters. Sure in any Marvel Comic, I would guarantee that Felicia would be tore up fierce by Creed but this is MvC2 we're talking about. Sabertooth is terrible in this game. Not only is his range crap, but if you've ever seen a quality player use Felicia you'll know that she is easily one of the better characters in the game.Bottom Line: One on One, Sabertooth V. Felicia = Felicia everytime. Deal with it.I can't wait for this to come out so I can start schooling you guys on it. On another note: Marvel, seriously, what are you waiting for. MvC3! Just get it done. You could even do a whole Dark Avengers/Dark X-Men Character idea. Get Daken in there. Get Iron Patriot in there. Also, how about a Luke Cage/Iron Fist or a Black Panther or maybe a Winter Soldier. That would be too awesome. sigh

heh. Felicias attacks are actually magically reinforced. that isnt just sand she kicks. hate to say it but that right there is a big problem for Sabretooth.add to it shes superhumanly fast and strong, id rate her at about Spideys level there, and has the same advantage of Logan, which is shes small enough to stay inside of his long reach and cut away and KO him.given it to Felicia (as much as i dont want to).

Arright... Sabretooth is vicious, and he has some interesting nuances. First of all, let's talk about Birdie. Birdie basically is a projectile attack... that doesn't come from Sabretooth. What does that mean? It means he can call her, then go RIGHT BACK TO FIGHTING while she lets off three rounds. VERY useful... but also, very slow.Sabretooth is also savage in his striking attacks. He combos easily (his LP actually swings twice automatically), and his Berserker Claw has this sweet tendency to throw opponents off. Wild fang is a great anti-air that also catches opponents off guard.Lastly, his hypers are decent. Hyper Birdie Call does EXCELLENT chip damage. Hyper Berserker Claw... is strong, but hard to land. And Hyper Berserker Claw X is a charmer. However... to say Felicia can't put up a fight is an outright lie.The Delta Kick is hard to stop, AND she can activate it in midair for nice damage. Her Rolling Buckler is like Cammy's Hooligan Combo: it can become anything. A sliding kick, a rolling punch, OR a NASTY uppercut. It hits fast and gets results.Sand Splash is a VERY nice projectile attack that does its job and gets Felicia back on defense in an INSTANT. It's easily comboable as well.Her hypers... WORK. Hyper Sand Splash is EASY to use, and has GREAT OTG potential. Dancing Flash is not hard to land, especially at close range, and does great damage. The only one I stay away from is Please Help Me, but if you use it sparingly, it DOES take enemies by surprise.To be quite honest, these two are evenly matched offensively. But here's the catch: Sabretooth has low defense on this game. Not as low as Wolverine, but noticeably low. Furthermore, he's a big target; faster than OTHER larger characters, but still a big target. Does this give Felicia an edge? No. What gives Felicia an edge is... Team Hyper Combos. For some reason, the makers allow Sabretooth to mix Berserker Claw with Triple Team Hypers... and it DOES NOT WORK. He only hits once, and when other hypers interrupt, he just stands there. WASTE OF TIME.So in a one-on-one match, I say this is a draw. But as far as who's better overall on this game, Felicia gets my vote.Felicia for the win, 5-out-of-10.P.S. - And it has nothing to do with her outfit.
