Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite

After months of waiting, weeks of arguing about leaks, the full launch roster for Marvel vs. Capcom: Infinite has been revealed. As Capcom noted on the UK upload of the latest full story trailer (pointed out by Eventhubs), the "newly added characters bring the final roster at launch up to 30 characters, with more post launch characters to be revealed in the future." 

So what do you think of the roster? Before you answer, here are a few facts:

  1. There are six characters never seen in the series before (five if you don't include the new version of Thanos).
  2. There are no characters from Fox film properties like series favorites Wolverine, Magneto, or Storm. 
  3. There are only four female characters (Captain Marvel, Chun-Li, Morrigan, and Gamora).
  4. Sigma and Black Panther have been confirmed as DLC additions. 

I'm personally not mad at the size of the roster as 30 characters is pretty generous for a 2-on-2 fighter, but it's hard not to feel something's missing from these selections. I'm hoping more hands-on time with its cool gameplay will shake the hollow feeling I have.
