Player Two Start!/That’s Warner Brothers! – Characters We’d Like To See in Multiversus

Howdy, folks.

Unless you’ve been living in a remote log cabin in the woods somewhere, you’ve undoubtedly heard about Warner Bros. new video fighting game Multiversus.

Prepare to get knocked the toon out!

The game is still early, but the first character roster has been revealed, and we think that the lineup is pretty good.

However, we feel that this lineup is, shall we say, a tad incomplete. The official Multiversus website says that more characters will be revealed soon, but in the meantime, we’d like to list some of the characters that we would add to the Multiversus roster. Let’s go, man, go!

LOONEY TUNES

So far, we’ve got Bugs Bunny and Taz, which is great, but there needs to be more. There are too many awesome Looney Tunes characters for there to only be 2 in this game.

Multiversus needs to have Daffy Duck. It just does. Daffy is wacky and nutty, and his moves would be erratic and unpredictable. This isn’t up for debate. Daffy is awesome and he needs to be in the game. Period.
I’d also throw in Lola Bunny for gender balance, and I want The Looney Tunes Show version of the character. Wacky Lola is best Lola. I don’t care about “bunny boobies”, and neither should you.

And also, Yosemite Sam.

A little guy with a big mouth and big guns. He’d be perfect for a WB slug fest.

Here’s a kooky thought: why not add Granny as a wild card?

She could have a ramming motor scooter attack, an umbrella whack, some Matrix-style karate moves, plus another female Looney Tune is always welcome.
I considered Sylvester and Tweety, but the way I imagined them playing would be too similar to Tom & Jerry.

DETECTIVE COMICS (DC)

So far, we’ve got the Trinity (Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman) and Harley Quinn. Nice, but there should be more.

Bring in The Flash. The Scarlet Speedster is a no-brainer.
And also Green Lantern, aka John Stewart. Yeah, I know that Hal Jordan is the most famous Green Lantern, but come on. We need some representation.
Cyborg would be another good choice for this endeavor; we haven’t gotten a decent Tech Factor hero in this game yet.
Or Static Shock. He’s got a unique power set. That works too.
And since Harley Quinn is already here, might as well bring in The Joker as well.

HANNA-BARBERA

There is a rumor that Fred Flintstone may show up in Multiversus, and if that’s true, yeah, we get it. The Flintstones is iconic. But personally, if we’re going to have an H-B caveman in this game, We’d rather have Captain Caveman.

He’s super strong. He can fly. He has a magic club. Tell me that having Cavey in this game wouldn’t rock (Sorry, couldn’t resist)!

And hey, since Multiversus is technically a fighting game, why not throw in Hong Kong Phooey?

Number One super guy! Fanriffic!
WARNING! Obscure TV show reference. You risk losing your contemporary audience! Please move on.
And since we’ve already got some super heroes, how about Space Ghost? He’s got groovy powers.
I think the Scoob! versions of Blue Falcon and Dynomutt might be cool, but that’s probably just me.

One more thing. I suspect that we’ll get more members of Mysteries Inc. somewhere down the line, but I think that it’s ridiculous that Shaggy and Velma made it to this game before Scooby Doo, so let’s rectify that.

“Ring me in, clowns!”

CARTOON NETWORK

So far, on the Cartoon Network side, we’ve got Finn and Jake from Adventure Time, Garnet and Steven Universe from, well, Steven Universe. Not bad, but there needs to be more.

The Powerpuff Girls

I don’t think that I need to explain why the Powerpuff Girls should be in Multiversus. They were originally called The Whoop-Ass Girls. ‘Nuff said.

I also think that this game should have Dexter as a playable character.

Give him a pile of gadgets and/or a mech suit and the pint sized mad scientist is good to go.

I’d also add Mordecai and Rigby from Regular Show.

I have no idea what they would do. I just want to see them in there.

An obvious choice from Cartoon Network’s roster would be Ben Tennyson, aka Ben 10.

The obvious hook with him would be having him switch into his various alien forms and giving each one of them a special attack. It would a bit to make, but it could be done.
For balance you could throw Gwen in there as well, just give her her Anodite magic and she’s all set.
Feakazoid would be a good addition, but he’s co-owned by Steven Spielberg, so WB would need to get clearance from Amblin in order to use him.

Moving on…

Again, I don’t know how this would work, but you have to admit, having Godzilla in this game would be freakin’ cool!
