I. Introduction
--------------------------------------------------------------


  Over the past couple of months I've become a complete Marvel vs Capcom 2 
maniac. I've searched far and wide for any news what so ever on Marvel vs 
Capcom 2. I've seen a million screen shots, about 30 movies, a few wallpapers 
(I have an awesome one on my comp now) and have read as many previews and 
reviews and other stuff. I've even read all the other character FAQ's on this 
site before I even thought of making my own. But I just felt I needed to 
contribute to the greatness of M vs C 2. So I did it through GameFAQ's with a 
character FAQ and my first one was Thanos. Now for the next character. Like I 
mentioned in the Thanos FAQ I always thought that the genetic freaks were the 
coolest but out of the very few non-freaks that I thought were cool one of 
them was Cable. For some reason I liked him. I never really liked the 8 
million wat BFG hyper blast machine gun guys but he just was, ya know. It's 
hard to explain. Anyway I was surprised not to see a character FAQ of him on 
GameFAQ's so I decided to write a FAQ on him. 

*7/24/00* Believe it or not, my long absence has been due to an addiction
          of Wacky Races, a cart game that totally blew me away. It's
          unquestionably the best DC cart game (dominating SP Rally and
          the Disney racing game) and in my opinion is better than Crash
          team Racing and almost as good as Mario Kart. I will try to
          continue to update as much as possible. I think it's safe to
          say that this FAQ will be finished once the strategy section
          has been completed.

*7/3/00* Many people don't know this but I never had a home version of 
         Marvel vs Capcom 2. I was too lazy to actually go out and buy 
         a mod chip and then get the game. So I just played it in the 
         arcade a few times and found as much information as possible 
         on it and wrote a few FAQs. But on 6/29/00 the home version 
         came out and I immediately bought it and played it to all hell.
         It is currently 2 AM on 7/3/00 and I have all the characters, 
         and 25 hours of gameplay. Now that im more experienced I'm 
         totally revising my FAQ and yes I will deliver the individual 
         strategy section as promised in the coming soon section.

- My legend is a bit different from most other FAQ's but I find it a lot 
  easier. Some other FAQ's that I read and printed out had the legend take
  up an entire page so I'm trying to keep it as simple as possible. I don't
  use QCF, QCB, etc. for down forward moves. I doubt anyone is actually 
  goona press down, take a 5 second pause and then press forward and a 
  punch/kick.

   Brief History     - Cable is a former government agent who came from 
                       the future and fought along side the X-Men and 
                       eventually came one. He has a wide variety of 
                       military and hand-to-hand combat skills as well 
                       as techno-organic (?) powers. He first got his 
                       techno-organic powers when Apocalypse infected
                       him with a virus while he was still a baby.
                       The virus infected him eye as well as his arm. 
                       The reason he came from the future is to stop the 
                       mistakes made by the X-Men in the past. He is the 
                       son of Scott Summers and Madeline Pryor (Cyclops 
                       and Jean Grey Clone created by Mr. Sinister) 
                       For some reason he seems to be the main character 
                       of the Marvel side in this game.

V. Rating
--------------------------------------------------------------


- This is pretty much a review of Cable. I will go through the six deciding 
  factors that make up a character (offense, defense, power, speed, recovery
  and comboability) and give them each a score from 1 to 10 (1 being the 
  lowest and 10 being the highest) followed by an overall score.

Offense - 9 - An arsenal of mega powered beams, guns, electric grenades,
              toasters and just about every futuristic version of a gun
              imaginable is what Cable brings to the table. Almost every
              move this guy does almost twice as much as the normal 
              fighter. All his special moves do at least 10% damage and
              pretty much all his moves are combo friendly. In conclusion,
              A combination of power, speed (for a guy his size) and huge 
              machine guns = good offense.

Defense - 7.5 - An arsenal of mega powered beams, guns, electric grenades,
                toasters and just about every futuristic version of a gun
                imaginable equals great offense, but not great defense. 
                Although he's far from weak, he's not too strong in this
                department either making him an average defensive player,
                but usually when your playing with a guy like Cable you're
                thinking machine guns and combos.

Power - 9 - Just in case there's any confusion over power and offense, power
            is the strength and damage done by the moves and offense is the
            arsenal of moves you have (Ex: Spider-Man and Wolverine have
            good offense but not so great power). Anyway, the reason I typed
            that last sentence is because Cable's offense is mainly due to
            his power moves which cancel out the first sentence. So if you
            want a detailed explanation, read the offense part.

Speed - 7.5 - Cable isn't any Wolverine or Spider-Man but considering his 
              size, he's pretty fast. He moves at a normal pace but the 
              thing that really adds on the speed points are his moves. 
              There's almost no delay on almost every one of his moves. 
              You can barely even see his Viper Beam until he's shooting at 
              you and his Psimitar and Psy-Charge moves are almost instant.
              In conclusion, walking / running wise he's not that fast but
              government training sure paid off for him in the moves dept.

Recovery - 6 - Cable is in the middle when it comes to recovery. His Viper
               Beam and Hyper Viper Beam have normal recovery. His Psimitar
               also has normal recovery but is an easy setup for a vertical 
               super. Electro Trap has normal recovery but people of Mega
               Man height and under can easily walk under it and do what
               ever they want to you which is usually bad. So in conclusion,
               most of his move have normal recovery time but can lead to a 
               lot of pain for Cable.

Comboability - 10 - Without a doubt the most combo friendly person in the
                    game. Let's see:
                  1. Viper Beam - does good damage for just a special move
                     and holds the victim in place for another super unlike
                     most supers which end in the guy flying across the 
                     screen (how can you combo Jin's tornado move into 
                     anything?) (Jin experts don't reply)
                  2. Electro Trap - holds the person in place. What more
                     could you ask for?
                  3. Hyper Viper Beam - read Viper Beam
                  4. Time Flip - read Viper Beam
                  
                  - Want more reasons? Read the combo section.
                  
Overall - 8.5 - In a final conclusion, Cable's offense and comboability is
                almost unmatched, his power is great, and his defense, speed,
                and recovery could use some work. But 8.5 is far from bad.
                It's great and that's the reason Cable is one of my favorite 
                guys to use. If you got an 85 on a test wouldn't you be happy?

VI. Moves
--------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------
Basic Moves     
-----------------------------

- Even a person who wants to become the ultimate mega Cable player in Marvel 
  vs Capcom 2 and does nothing but play with Cable in Marvel vs Capcom 2 24 
  hours a day, 7 days a week will not need a detailed description of his 
  regular moves but everyone else is doing it so I am too.

--------------------
LP / Jab
--------------------

- Standing - The classic useless button actually has a use in this game
             thanks to the addition of combos being the deciding factor 
             of every battle and even more use in Marvel vs Capcom 2 thanks
             to the deduction of the MP / Strong punch. Anyway, it's
             manditory for non-super combos and is as always good for
             mind games but other-wise a wussy punch.

- Jumping - The classic useless button actually has a use in this game
            thanks to the addition of combos being the deciding factor 
            of every battle and even more use in Marvel vs Capcom 2 thanks
            to the deduction of the MP / Strong punch. Anyway, it's
            manditory for non-super combos and is as always good for
            mind games but other-wise a wussy punch.

- Ducking - Pretty much the same thing as standing and jumping except
            worse because you can't do ducking specials. It's good
            for hiding a charge for a move where you have to hold
            a button back for two seconds, etc. but since Cable doesn't
            have any moves like that it's completely useless. In
            conclusion, Cable's short is stupid, has absolutely no reach, 
            and is stupid.

--------------------
LK / Short
--------------------

- Standing - The other classic useless button actually has a use in this game
             thanks to the addition of combos being the deciding factor 
             of every battle and even more use in Marvel vs Capcom 2 
             thanks to the deduction of the SK / strong kick. Anyway, 
             it's manditory for non-super combos and is as always good for
             mind games (Low Electro Traps) but other-wise a wussy punch.

            and is stupid.

--------------------
HP / Fierce
--------------------

- Standing - The driving force of all fighting games, the almighty fierce
             button makes it's 178th appearance in Marvel vs Capcom 2. As
             usual, an extremely useful move, responsible for the Viper Beam,
             the Hyper Viper Beam, the Psimitar, and the Psy-Charge. But this
             doesn't explain why Cable WITHOUT A DOUBT has the best fierce 
             punch in the game. Lets see shall we. First, his fierce is a 
             gun shot to begin with. Second, it can be a 5-hit combo, and 
             third it can be canceled into anything. It might as well be
             a special move.

- Jumping - The driving force of all fighting games, the almighty fierce
             button makes it's 178th appearance in Marvel vs Capcom 2. As
             usual, an extremely useful move, responsible for the Viper Beam,
             the Hyper Viper Beam, the Psimitar, and the Psy-Charge. It's
             also a gun shot which is a projectile all by itself.

- Ducking - Always the oddball being less useful than it's standing and
            jumping counterparts can't seem to get it right. Tends to
            bully the jab button for being more useless than he is until
            Cable gets knocked out. I don't know why I just thought of that.
            Cable's is pretty cool though because it's sort of like an
            anti-air move.

--------------------
HK / Roundhouse
--------------------

- Standing - Also a driving force of all fighting games, the mighty roundhouse
             button makes it's 178th appearance in Marvel vs Capcom 2. As
             usual, an extremely useful move, responsible for the Electro
             Trap, the Glow Punch and the Time Flip. By itself it still packs 
             quite a punch though. Wait I mean kick. Hohohohoho!!. That was 
             really gay.... Even better is that is does not lack in reach and 
             is good for stopping dashes. 

- Jumping - Also a driving force of all fighting games, the mighty roundhouse
            button makes it's 178th appearance in Marvel vs Capcom 2. As
            usual, an extremely useful move, responsible for the Electro
            Trap, the Glow Punch and the Time Flip. By itself it still packs 
            quite a punch though. Wait I mean kick. Hohohohoho!!. That was 
            really gay.... Even better is that is does not lack in reach and 
            is good for stopping jump-ins. (I said jump-ins instead of dashes 
            so technically it is different)

- Ducking - A pretty good sweep that breaks away from it's punching
            counterparts by actually, although not as useful as it's
            standing and jumping counterparts, is useful. How? For
            sweeping of course.


-----------------------------
Special Moves     
-----------------------------

    Viper Beam        - Down, Forward, Punch (air)
                      - Cable somehow manages to pull out a huge machine
                        from either behind him or in his pocket and 
                        blasts the opposition with a quick blast of viper
                        (sounds weird). He can do it in the air so that's 
                        a plus, but it has normal recovery time so people 
                        like Spider-Man might be able to get that one jab 
                        in before you recover. Takes anywhere from 5 to 
                        10% percent damage off. Can mash for extra damage.

    Psimitar           - Down, Forward, Down, Punch
                       - Isn't a psimitar a sword? Anyway, Cable uses his 
                         magic lighting feet to deliver a quick 5-10 lightning
                         kicks to the face going in a diagonal direction. 
                         This reminds me of one of Chun-li's moves for some 
                         reason. Moving on, it does about 10% damage on the 
                         average fighter but if you miss and your fighting 
                         against someone with a vertical super (Jin, Ken, 
                         Amingo, Hulk) your pretty much screwed. 

    Glow Punch         - Down, Foward, Kick
                       - Pretty much self-explanatory. Cable simply dashes
                         in and delivers a glowing haymaker to the opponent
                         (like he was goona do it on the clown in the fair
                         stage if I didn't say to the opponent). This is an
                         OK offensive move and is good for getting yourself
                         out of a corner if your keep away tactics fail you
                         and is good for nailing an assist person if you
                         manage to block his / her attack.
                         
    Electro Trap       - Down, Back, Kick (air)
                       - The first time I saw this move it hit me. Cable has 
                         got to be a future version of Stryker from Mortal 
                         Kombat 3. For people who don't know who he is, he's 
                         a cop who's horrible and has moves like Cable only 
                         stupid. Anyway, Cable, in a Stryker-like motion, 
                         whips out a small electric ball. When it hits the 
                         middle of the screen it grows a little and flashes. 
                         It the opponent hits it, he's trapped. You can also
                         hold any kick button when you do the move and it 
                         will go all the way down and bounce across the 
                         screen. The perfect keep away move from the perfect 
                         keep away character. Makes it almost impossible for 
                         a character to jump at you.

    Psy-Charge         - Forward, Down, Back, Punch
                       - Yet another Stryker-like move. Cable simply reaches 
                         out and grabs you. If he misses, he grabs the air. 
                         If he hits, he grabs you and gives you an electric
                         shock for about 2 seconds. Takes about 15% of your 
                         average guy/girl with barely any recover time. 
                         Unless you try to do the move 5 times in a row a
                         human opponent won't realize your doing it. Barely
                         any recovery time for the reason above. Great if 
                         your cornered and yet another keep away move.

Hyper Combos

   Hyper Viper Beam      - Down, Forward, PP (air)                         
                         - Cable once again magically whips out a huge 
                           machine gun either from behind him or out of 
                           his pocket. Then, right before he blasts his 
                           opponent, poses and says hyper followed by a 
                           picture of him taking up half the screen. Then 
                           Cable unleashes a super charged viper beam doing 
                           anywhere from 25 to 35 hits and a good 35 to 30 
                           percent damage. This is also the ideal combo 
                           linker because it holds the guy in place while 
                           taking off massive damage, and then easily link 
                           into another super. Most supers end in the guy 
                           flying across the stage so it's usually hard to 
                           pull one off. You can also button mash to get
                           even more hits if your that greedy. Real power 
                           move.                 

   Time Flip            - Down, Forward, KK

                        - I had no idea what this move is called so I decided
                          to call it Time Warp. Then I looked on CJayC's FAQ
                          and it said Time Flip. Then I got two e-mails from
                          two different people, one saying Time Rip, and the
                          other saying Time Slip. Then I got 5 e-mails saying
                          Time Flip so the final verdict is Time Flip.

                        - This super is awesome and shows that Capcom did 
                          their homework. Cable looks like he's about to 
                          throw another Electro Trap but instead the usual    
                      
                          picture pops up and then Cable unleashes his 
                          past self on you and does a 15-hit combo if it 
                          connects. This super actually makes sense because 
                          Cable came from the future and can call on 
                          Greymalkin, his computer system to send himself 
                          back in time for a few seconds. But that's not all, 
                          while the future Cable is doing his 15-hit combo, 
                          you can add to the insanity by doing your own combo 
                          for extra damage.

   Viper Cancel         - HP, HP into Viper Beam into Hyper Viper Beam
                        - One of the great advantages of Cable is that
                          his regular move can cancel into a special move 
                          which cancels into a super which I don't think 
                          anyone else in the game has. Just shoot your 
                          opponent twice, then cancel into the Viper Beam 
                          and then cancel again into the Hyper Viper Beam.
                          Can do anywhere from 30 to 50 hits. Cable really 
                          gets the numbers up there.


   Time Flip Combo      - Time Flip, Jumping HK (just as Time Flip Stops),
                          Ducking HP, LP, LK, HP, HP, HP
                        - Cable starts off with a devastating Time Flip.
                          As his future counterpart takes care of business
                          you can add in a few boots here or there. But
                          just as he fades out jump in with the above combo
                          for even extra damage. A nice solid 20 hit combo
                          doing 20% percent damage on your average fighter.


   Hyper Viper Flip     - Time Flip, Jumping HK (just as Time Flip Stops),
                          Ducking HP, LP, LK, HP, HP into Viper
                          Beam into Hyper Viper Beam
                        - Pretty much a combination of the first two combos.
                          First start off with the Time Flip. As the future
                          Cable fades out, jump in with the combo until right 
                          at the end where he shoots twice. Then cancel the 
                          shots into a regular Viper Beam and then cancel 
                          again into the Hyper Viper Beam. Pretty cool name 
                          too, I thought of it myself. 


  Hyper Viper Flip      - Time Flip, LK, LK, Ducking HK, Electro Trap (using 
 (different version)      LK), Jumping Hyper Viper Beam, Jumping Hyper Viper 
                          Beam (Mash Up)
                        - Thanks to Fireball 13 for this combo. Cable calls
                          upon himself to kick the crap out of his opponent
                          followed by a by a three kick combo. Now this is
                          the science bit, pay attention (had to get that
                          out. From some hair spray commercial). You have
                          to do the low version of the Electro Trap other-
                          wise it will usually go over the guy unless your
                          fighting a huge guy. Then do two Hyper Viper Beams,
                          one normally and one mashing the up button until
                          your finger melts (or until it stops) for serious
                          damage. Take a guess on how much this does.
                          

  Dual Hyper Viper Flip - Time Flip, Jumping HK (just as Time Flip Stops),
                          Ducking HP, LP, LK, HP, HP, Spider-Man assist A,
                          Time Flip, Jumping HK (just as Time Flip Stops),
                          Ducking HP, LP, LK, HP, HP, into Hyper 
                          Viper Beam
                        - I made this one up. I swear.... Only saw this in 
                          a combo movie. Wow was just about all I could say. 
                          It's one of those combos you think you will 
                          never..... EVER do. Anyway, Cable does the Time 
                          Flip followed by the 5-hit punch / kick combo 
                          followed by Spider-Man with web action followed 
                          by the Time Flip followed by the 5-hit punch / 
                          kick combo and then an immediate cancel into the 
                          Hyper Viper Beam.

--------------------------------------------------------------
VII. Strategy
--------------------------------------------------------------


--------------------------------
General                      
--------------------------------

- Obviously this is the general strategy section. Here I will
  show you basic strategy to use with Cable on most occasions.
  This strategy may not work for you but this is simply the
  way I play Cable divided into sections.
  
---------------------
1. Keep Away!!!
---------------------

- A must learn strategy for Cable users. For people who don't know 
  what the keep away technique, it's just like it sounds. Keep away
  from the opponent at all costs. If your opponent jumps, throw an
  Electro Trap at him/her. If he/she walks or dashes towards you, 
  Viper, or Hyper Viper Beam him/her. If he/she manages to penetrate 
  any of those moves and is right up in your face you can either use
  your Time Flip super, Glow Punch, or Psy-charge him. If you 
  don't want to take .15 seconds to do that, or are already in the 
  process of being beaten to death, use an assist, preferably someone
  with an anti-air move considering the person doing the anti-air move
  pops up right behind you before doing the move so if the person is 
  right next to you he/she will hit him. 

---------------------
2. Be Combo Friendly
---------------------

- Cable himself has absolutely nothing to worry about when it comes
  to being combo friendly, but sometimes is partners can be a bit
  of a problem when a comes to team supers and delayed hyper combos.
  If you definitely have your three guys and don't want to change them
  under any circumstances, that's fine. But if Cable's your man and 
  you in the need for two other people to be good with, read on. My 
  team as some as you know is Cable, Thanos and Ken. While Cable, 
  Thanos, and Ken all work great together with delayed hyper combos, 
  team supers are a different story. Thanos' ball takes up some of the
  Hyper Viper Beam hits and Ken's super doesn't even hit the opponent.
  So if your looking for more people to go with Cable, I suggest trying    
  Cyclops, Iron Man, War Machine, Mega Man, Iceman, Doctor Doom, and 
  Sentinel unless your already satisfied with your team.

--------------------
3. Play With Guns
--------------------

- Always take full advantage of having the best fierce punch in the
  game. His regular fierce is practically a special move, his ducking 
  fierce is an anti-air move and his jumping fierce like the others,
  is a projectile. If you need some serious damage, use the Hyper
  Viper Beam. Always remember while playing with Cable that your gun
  is your best friend (please don't commit suicide and blame it on 
  this FAQ). You should also use Cable's assists to your advantage
  as they are all useful. His Viper Beam can stop dashes, and his
  Electro Trap and Psimitar moves can stop jump-ins (I was goona put
  "Use Assists!" into a separate section but it was too short so im
  just adding it to this one).

--------------------
4. Cancel!
--------------------

- Probably my most frequently used set of moves using Cable is the
  fierce punch canceled into Viper Beam canceled into Hyper
  Viper Beam. This move easily gets 30-45 hits and does about 30-
  50 percent damage, depending on who you're fighting. I always
  get really mad when I miss a Hyper Viper Beam, so to make sure
  I connect, I hit the opponent with a few shots first and then
  a Viper Beam before doing it so I ensure that I will land it. 
  This is especially using against Iceman because he doesn't take
  any damage at all from blocking projectile attacks.

--------------------
5. Dont be Cheap!
--------------------

- Also a must learn strategy by not only Cable users, but by all
  users. Do not be cheap! Especially with Cable. And that's pretty
  damn hard. The most important thing you need to do is not to
  abuse the guns. An expierienced player will sow no mercy to you
  both during the match and after the match if you abuse the
  almighty punch button, the Viper Beam, or the Hyper Viper Beam.
  And yes that does go for the 4 fierce punch, cancel into Viper
  Beam, cancel into Hyper Viper Beam move too. There are only two
  times when you can just let al the cheapness out. Those are when
  either the person you are facing is also extremely cheap, or if
  it's a super scrub that's not giving you any problem. Also make 
  sure your stornger than him so you can beat him to death in real
  life if he gets pissed.

--------------------
6. Secret Weapon...
--------------------

- The secret weapon... Known to few, used by few (that would make
  sense) but now will be revealed to the public. It is indeed the
  AHVBx3. The AHVBx3? The AHVBx3!!! What is the AHVBx3 anyway? That
  would translate into the Air Hyper Viper Beam times 3. Yes, you
  can indeed catch someone in mid-air with not 1, not 2, but three
  devastating Air Hyper Viper Beams. That could be anywhere from 1
  to 90 percent damage. But beware as the secret weapon is also
  linked to number 5 in the general strategy section. If you even
  think about using this move more than once, not only will your
  opponent beat you to death, but I will send attack dogs after you
  and you will die a horrid and embarresing death. Again, feel free
  to do this as much as you wan't to other cheapos and super scrubs.



--------------------------------
Vs. Abyss                             
--------------------------------

- If you need to use this section let me tell you now to find
  another Cable FAQ because obviously this one isn't helping 
  you that much. Ask anybody who has ever played against Abyss
  will most likely tell you that he is one of the easiest if
  not the easiest end-boss ever especially with Cable. I
  rarely beat him with only having 2 people at the end. Let's
  break down the three forms of this pathetic boss.

--------------------
1st Form
--------------------

- What a joke. He's slow, he can't block, he takes damage
  like a schoolgirl, he looks like a knight and he charges 
  up for his supers about five seconds before doing them. 
  His normal moves are slow too like when he throws one of
  is horns at you he actually has to rip it out of his face
  first before throwing it at you. Simply block his moves
  and Hyper Viper Beam the hell out of him.
  
--------------------
2nd Form
--------------------

- The gayest, yet hardest of the three forms. He's a green
  blob who has a really annoying laugh. His moves and supers
  are quick but ineffective and like the 1st form, he can't
  block. The only moves you really need to worry about at all
  are the bubbles which you can just shoot away, and the beam 
  that goes across the whole screen. Other than that basically 
  use the same strategy as you did for the first form.

--------------------
3rd Form
--------------------

- A horribly pixelated huge red man beast with devastating 
  attacks that can be easily blocked and followed up with
  a Hyper Viper Beam to the face. In conclusion, Considering 
  that there's a black ball that floats around that you can 
  also hit, and a huge red blob on the screen both which 
  can't block and take damage like an old game show host,
  you should be done with this trash in no time.



--------------------------------
Vs. Computer                 
--------------------------------

- Remember this is the Vs. Computer section, not the Vs. Friend
  section. If you need help fighting fellow humans, go to the
  general strategy section. While Im at it, I might as well post
  my current Marvel vs Capcom 2 status. It's 4:30 PM EST, I have
  55 hours, 56 characters, 7 stages, and 21 colors (Note: Don't
  think I spent all 55 hours trying to get points. About 40 of
  those hours is playing with friends or in training mode, where
  I have spent countless hours trying to make this FAQ worth
  something, and where you get a point every minute. Believe it
  or not, the reason for my recent lack of MvsC2 gaming is because
  I picked up Wacky Races and ever seince I got it I've been
  barely playing MvsC2. Anybody looking for a cart game on DC
  should stay away from Mickey and Cartman and pick this one up.

--------------------
Amingo
--------------------

- Can be annoying as hell if you give him the chance. Numbers
  1 and 3 in the general strategy section are big helps to
  fighting him. Keep Away! is mandatory, as you not only have
  to keep away Amingo from getting to you, but those damned 
  plants as well. Amingo frequently plants and deploys little
  cactuses at you as well as a Super Mario Brothers-like parana
  plant for his maraca super. What do you do when you see either
  of these two spawns of Amingo? Melt them. Use the almighty 
  fierce punch to stop the flying onion attack and remember, 
  Keep away! If Amingo gets close if enough to you, hell most
  likely either use the spinning plant super, or air combo you
  to death.

--------------------
Cable
--------------------

- When you fight yourself and your Cable get ready for some long
  range military combat. The harder difficulty levels use the
  Keep Away! strategy to some extent, but obviously, two keep
  away characters fighting each other will eventually wind up
  in a stale mate so I suggest you don't use the Keep Away!
  strategy too much but to frequently use number 3 in the general
  strategy section. If all else fails you're goona have to use
  some basic training and go full contact with your clone and 
  make some use of the 150 combos I have posted up above. I
  just realized that Cable is the only person who would make
  sense fighting himself considering that he can send himself
  back in time and do whatever he wants.

--------------------
Dan
--------------------

- Even Abyss can make fun of this guy. Use the Keep Away!
  Strategy if you're a beginner, but if you're more experienced
  I would try fighting him with no hands. His triple kick takes
  him 5 seconds to get across the screen with so you can just
  Viper or Hyper Viper Beam him, his autograph thing takes him
  30 seconds to do so you can go to bathroom, come back and
  then still have enough time to Viper or Hyper Viper Beam him,
  and his pathetic Gadoken and imitation Dragon Punch moves
  don't even make it half way across the screen. And don't 
  forget his devastating taunt which is soooo useful and does 
  so much damage. The only thing you're even have to think about
  is his combo super which he can only do if he gets to you.

--------------------
Iceman
--------------------

- As usual, use the Keep Away! Strategy while fighting Iceman.
  The only major problem is that damn Ice Beam of his. He
  frequently uses that hated move which has given himself quite
  a name for being "cheap" among Marvel vs Capcom 2 experts. 
  Anyway, Iceman sometimes will use this move as a keep away
  tactic, but of course that won't affect you at all since you're
  already using keep away tactics yourself. His giant ice ball
  thing can't reach any further than a little over half way across
  the screen and you'll have plenty of time to block his Arctic 
  Attack. One thing that really pisses me off though is that he
  doesn't chip. When you use for Hyper Viper Beam be positive
  that you will connect because if he blocks it he wont take any
  damage at all.

--------------------
Iron Man
--------------------

- One of the more annoying characters in the game, in which he
  not only annoys you with his moves but with his voice tracks
  too. He frequently uses the Unibeam and Proton Cannon, so in
  this case you should use the Keep Away! strategy not really to
  keep him away from you, but so that you can easily block his
  attacks and follow it up with a nice Hyper Viper Beam to the
  face. Also, if he gets in too close, don't try to jump towards
  him because 9 out of 10 times he will Repulsor Blast you, and
  sometimes even air combo you. And to make matters worse, he 
  has one of the most irritating voices in the game, especially
  when he does the Unibeam. Superior Attack!!!

--------------------
Kobun / Servbot
--------------------

- As easy as he looks he could be a real pain for Cable. You're
  goona have to rely heavily on number 3 in the general strategy
  section if you want to beat this guy. This is also one of the
  few characters I don't play keep away against unless he starts
  to get really annoying around the sixth and seventh stages. 
  While playing against Kobun (I like that name a lot better than
  Servbot), you're Electro Trap, Psimitar, Psy-Charge, 9 out of
  10 assist moves and even the almighty fierce punch buttons are
  rendered useless and your Time Flip does about 1 hit to 5 hits.
  So try to jump in with a lot of jumping HK, ducking HK combos
  and use a lot of low-directed Viper and Hyper Viper Beams.
  Obviously, he's goona take damage pretty badly so three Hyper
  Viper Beams are most likely going to kill him.

--------------------
Megaman
--------------------

- You're goona simply have to fight cheap with cheap against this
  midget. Rivaling the fierce punch priority of Cable himself, 
  he uses it a lot more than the computer Cable does his, and can
  charge his up. Make sure to especially use the Keep Away! strategy
  when he's charged up because he only uses it as part of an air 
  combo. Thankfully, his supers are no match for Cables keep away
  strategy as his Hyper Megaman can only work if either your next
  to him or your block button is broken and the Rush Drill and
  Beat Plane moves have to be moved towards you. In that case, you
  can just block, and follow up with a nice fierce punch, cancel
  into Viper Beam, cancel into Hyper Viper beam.

--------------------
Omega Red
--------------------

- Rivaling the keep away skills of Cable himself, fortunately,
  the CPU opponent doesn't take advantage of it, unless the
  difficulty is on MAX. Omega Red can play a monstrous game of
  keep away considering he has a coil that can go in every
  direction and a super that you can only escape by blocking
  and taking the chip damage. Just thank God that you're Cable
  and not someone like Wolverine otherwise you'd be begging
  the Dreamcast not to have you face Omega Red. Anyway number
  3 in the general strategy section is the definite strategy
  to use. Who do you thinks goona have the upper hand in a
  coil versus Hyper Viper Beam. In conclusion, Cable remains
  the undisputed, undefeated, keep away king.

--------------------
Roll
--------------------

- Basically Megaman only even weaker, less cheap, and will less
  affective supers. Unfortunately your almighty fierce punch
  has been thwarted by those damn midgets, but thanks to the
  ability to control which direction your Viper, and Hyper Viper
  Beams go, you can direct them low and still do a lot of damage.
  Like Megaman, unless either your standing right next her, which
  you wont because you're using the Keep Away! strategy, or if the
  block button has been broken which I doubt, all her supers are 
  useless. Her hyper Roll takes too long, and her Rush Drill and
  Beat Plane moves take too long to get across the screen. Even
  worse for Roll, they can all be countered with a fierce punch
  cancel into Viper beam cancel into Hyper Viper Beam.


--------------------
Sakura
--------------------

- The female Ryu clone makes her second appearance in the versus
  series, and still remains extremely annoying. She uses almost
  every one of her moves frequently, especially that cheap fire
  ball wannabe. She even uses her Evil Sakura mode which is sort
  of like an annoyance enhancer. Anyway, im goona have to go with
  the Keep Away! strategy on this one, which in turn renders her
  "Hurricane Kick" and "Hadouken" moves and supers useless. Just
  make sure to watch out for that rushing imitation Dragon Punch
  she does and return the favor with a nice Hyper Viper Beam. A
  great way to counter a totally missed "Hurricane Kick" super
  is by using the secret weapon as told in the general strategy
  section. That's right I said the secret weapon. Go check it out!
  
--------------------
Venom
--------------------

- Two words. Block fiend. You throw an Electro Trap, he blocks it.
  You give him a Viper or Hyper Viper Beam, he blocks it. You
  breath near him, he blocks it. You make an apple sandwich, he
  blcoks it. Ok you get the point. Venom plays a very odd keep
  away game. He will always block attacks instead of using attacks
  to keep you at bay, and will always use his HK to stop jumping
  attacks. Even weirder, he will usually move in to attack, which
  doesn't make sense if you were just playing keep away. His Death
  Bite and Venom Web are both fearful supers if connected but take
  too much time to charge up for, so just be lucky you're a keep
  away king. As for strategy I would say use number 3 in the 
  general strategy section mainly due to the great chip damage
  that Cable does since that's the only thing you're usually
  going to get out of Venom.

--------------------
War Machine
--------------------

- One of the more annoying characters in the game, in which he
  not only annoys you with his moves but with his voice tracks
  too. He frequently uses the Shoulder Cannon and Proton Cannon,
  so in this case you should use the Keep Away! strategy not 
  really to keep him away from you, but so that you can easily
  block his attacks and follow it up with a nice Hyper Viper Beam
  to the face. Also, if he gets in too close, don't try to jump
  towards him because 9 out of 10 times he will Repulsor Blast
  you, and sometimes even air combo you, or even worse, throw you
  or even worse, give you a nice War Destroyer. And to make matters
  worse, he has one of the most irritating voices in the game,
  especially when he does the Shoulder Cannon a million times. 
  Here's my Sundays best!!! (Note: The reason im using similar
  strategies for Iron Man and War Machine is because they basically
  play the same way)

--------------------
Wolverine
--------------------

- Just as frantic as in Marvel vs Capcom 1, Wolverine, which was
  my favorite character in Marvel vs Capcom 1 returns to be one
  of only 4 people (Wolverine, Ryu, Chun-Li and Zangeif) to be 
  a playable character in all 4 Vs. series games. Anyway, he's
  probably the most keep away friendly person in the game
  considering he's totally useless from full screen distance.
  You have to be careful because you're dead, previously
  fondled man flesh if he gets to you. He frequently blocks and
  then will dash in and air combo and Tornado Claw you to death.
  If you keep him away long enough he will eventually get mad
  and do Beserker Barrage X a million times. Counter all his
  dashes with Viper or Hyper Viper Beam.

--------------------
Wolverine (Bone)
--------------------

- Just as frantic as in Marvel vs Capcom 1, Wolverine, which was
  my favorite character in Marvel vs Capcom 1 returns to be one
  of only 4 people (Wolverine, Ryu, Chun-Li and Zangeif) to be 
  a playable character in all 4 Vs. series games. Anyway, he's

--------------------
Zangeif
--------------------

- The original blocking king returns in Marvel vs Capcom 2, and
  also returns to be one of only 4 people (Wolverine, Ryu,
  Chun-Li and Zangeif) to be a playable character in all 4 Vs.
  series games. Definitely use the Keep Away! strategy as he is
  completely useless from full screen distance and is extremely
  slow. Shouldn't be a problem at all with Cable unless he either
  gets to you and then proceeds to suplex and piledrive you to
  death or even worse, turn into Mech-Zangeif early in his life
  span. In this case you would have to Hyper Viper Beam him to 
  death and throw as many projectiles as possible before he can 
  get to you considering he can't block, but isn't phased by
  Hyper Viper Beam (not damage wise, but he will just keep walking
  towards you even if he is getting hit)

- 13 down, 43 to go.......

VIII. Miscellaneous
--------------------------------------------------------------


-----------------------------
Opening Animation            
-----------------------------

1. Something sort of like an Electro Trap appears on the upper-
   left corner of the screen and then Cable pops out of it and 
   prepares to fight. I guess he's supposed to be coming from a
   different point of time.   

2. He's automatically on the screen. He just poses with his gun and
   says "Time to get rough" and then prepares to battle holding his
   gun in the same position that cops and spies are in when they're 
   posing or against a wall waiting to turn and shoot.

3. He's automatically on the screen. He loads his gun and then I
   think he says "Too far" but I doubt it considering it makes
   absolutely no sense.


-----------------------------
Ending Animation            
-----------------------------

1. Wow..... After pummeling his opponent, the tape on his arm falls 
   off and his arm turns into a giant grayish gooey thing. He says
   "That's enough for now" and breaths heavy. I'm guessing either
   it was an injury from the fight or that his techno-organic
   virus is getting to him.

2. He just poses with his gun and I think he says "Too far" but
   I doubt it considering it makes no sense.


-----------------------------
Other Animations
-----------------------------

1. After you press HP making Cable shoot his gun, if you don't
   press anything after that he will just stand there with
   his back turned and his gun up.

2. Pressing start and LK will make Cable do his taunt. He flips
   his gun in a Big Bossman like fashion and says "Im ready"

3. When you call for an assist with Cable he will point with 
   his thumb to the opponent and say "Cover Me" which I guess 
   is due to the future police training he went through.

4. When you switch to another person he will say "It's your
   job" and then jump off the screen like everyone else does. 

5. If you don't press anything with Cable, he will breath in
   and out normally twice and the third time electricity will
   flow through his arm and hell sort of twitch a little bit.

6. If you don't press anything after you connect with Cable's
   Psy-Charge, he will pose with his gun while looking at you
   while electricity flows through his arm with the tape on it.

7. If Cable loses a match as a result of time being over, he
   will kneel down sort of like his ducking position and
   clutch his fist in disappointment.
