I've watched the Ash Vs Evil Dead series on Netflix and I can tell you he's definitely not boring.I didn't say anything about it before because I thought he was guaranteed, but seeing Boon deconfirm him now, god damn am I glad Ash isn't coming. I like Ash and the Evil Dead movies, but fuck he seemed like he'd be such a boring character
But as I said, does Ghostface even have a personality when he's been around 5 or 6 different people? I just see 'him' (since that changes) as a bunch of young 20-something character actors beneath a silly halloween costume? Surely it's like saying the Jason costume used by an impostor from Jason Takes Manhattan is an equally defining version of the character?The appeal of Ghostface is his personality mostly. Not that I would advocate for him being in the game either over other characters, but that's why people tend to like him. Sort of a meme-y kind of slasher killer vibe.
Also, Joker being either a criminal mastermind wiener or an expert martial artist.. or both just depends on which iteration you're reading.
As for Joker, that's fair enough. I freely admit I don't know much about DC comics, I'm not fan of superheroes or supervillains, I only know the character from the 60s show, the 89 movie and the Dark Knight, as well as the trailer to the recent Joker film (sorry I've not seen it), but in all these it seemed like any of the martial arts-expert photo-captured actors from the original MK games would have literally kicked his ass so hard he'd be in a wheel chair drinking dinner through a straw had they entered an actual fighting arena with him (whichever version it was?) and his power came from being a criminally insane mastermind out-thinking the heroes rather than out-combatting them.
