I recall playing Street Fighter as a greasy little game kiddie. In fact, I think I am among the youngest to truly appreciate the form of the thousand hand slap, and the true beauty of playing M Bison vs M Bison with a Game Genie and a perspiring brow. So those of your who are fully into sexual and mental maturity, how does it make you feel to know that there's a new, real, live, breathing Chunners running about somewhere in front of a camera?
Having been brought to flickering life by Ming-Na Wen in the 1994 adaptation, Chun-Li has dropped off the cultural barometer (as has Ming-Na Wen). Mainly because Kylie's turn as high-kicking Cammy blew the fanboys into far-flung depths of one-man depravity, but also because it takes a lot more than sitcom grade acting to cement a character in reality when everyone has seen the very tops of her thighs in glorious 16 bit colour.
The almighty thigh herself is now in the hands of Kristen Kreuk, straight from Smallville. Plenty of people have been mocking up comparisons
, but the first image of KK in official Chun-Li grab has come to light:
My natural response is a carrying 'beg pardon?' I don't expect a cartoon, but er. Chun-Li should at least be wearing blue. What do you think?
