First Appearance: "Mega Man"
Marvel/Capcom Game Appearances: "Marvel vs. Capcom," "Marvel vs. Capcom 2"

Brief Bio: Built alongside her brother Mega Man, Roll was designed for house keeping. Could have fooled us! This little lady incorporates her house keeping chores along with her fighting, using her broom, water pail and other assorted home cleaning utensils to batter her foes. While she's never appeared solo in any video games, she's been a staunch supporting character of her brother's exploits since the very beginning and it's certain the little bot girl will keep helping Mega Man until Dr. Wily is defeated.
Powers: Roll has abilities very similar to her brother Rock, better known as Mega Man. She has a Roll Buster that fires high powered beams of energy and tosses exploding flowers. Isn't she cute?
Special Moves: Roll Buster, Flower Boquet, Rockball, Leaf Shield, Tornado Hold, Hyper Roll, Rush Drill, Beat Plane

Brief Bio: Thanos hails from Titan, a moon of Saturn.  A genetic quirk left the young Thanos' appearance mutated and different from the other inhabitants of his home planet.  Realizing this difference, he secluded himself from his people, using bionics and mysticism to boost his already formidable abilities.  He became obsessed with nihilism and eventually began to worship Death, a path that led him into conflict with the universe's greatest heroes.  He has attempted to destroy the universe more than once and succeeded in wiping out half of all the life temporarily.  He has controlled the Cosmic Cube and Infinity Gauntlet, two of the most powerful weapons in the universe, and will always be a threat to life so long as he pursues Death.
Powers: Thanos, while in possession of the Infinity Gauntlet, has nearly infinite power. He can control the primordial forces of power, reality, space, and soul. He also has super human strength and endurance.
Special Moves: Titan Crush, Bubble Trap, Gauntlet Power, Gauntlet Reality, Gauntlet Space, Gauntlet Soul
