Painwheel, Painwheel, Spinning Around, Skullgirls' Latest Fighter is a Spinning Tortured Soul

A scared schoolgirl trapped in a body fuelled by pain and fury, Painwheel dominates the air and pierces her foes with sharp spikes as the latest character introduced for Reverge Labs' all-girl fighter Skullgirls. You can call her Carol.

Carol was just a regular schoolgirl before she was kidnapped and injected with experimental Skullgirls blood, transforming her into the monster we see before us today. She's not quite as hot as Parasoul or as pleasantly feline as Ms. Fortune, but her name is nice and punny. She'll do nicely.

Skullgirls is headed to Xbox Live Arcade and the PlayStation Network early next year.
