20 Greatest Ever Beat Em Up Video Game Characters

20. Albert Wesker (Marvel vs. Capcom)

Albert Wesker is, of course, best known to players as the antagonist of the Resident Evil franchise, but in Marvel vs. Capcom 3, he took some time out to show off his skills outside of engineering grotesque monsters. Wesker is easily one of if not the most powerful character in MvC3, characterised largely by his ability to teleport around, which is a great way to confuse the hell out of your opponent. Wesker is a great character for the uninitiated to use, because his combos can cause massive damage but at the same time aren't especially complicated to execute. Not only does he have a lot of health, but he is brilliant for countering and pulling off combos, making him a force to be reckoned with, especially if you take him online. Be warned, though, if you're on the receiving end of someone playing as Wesker online, you're probably going to get pounded.
