Rock was the protagonist of the eighth instalment of the Fatal Fury series of brawling video games. Garou: Mark of the Wolves was released in 1999, primarily on Neo-Geo. As of this writing remains the last game in the Fatal Fury series, as SNK went bankrupt.

But that doesn’t mean that he wouldn’t be a great character to join any young team of superheroes — especially given his incredible potential.

Mr. Howard is the son of one of the most feared reoccurring villains in his universe. Furthermore, he was personally trained from a very early age by one of the greatest and most respected heroes.
