Fans combing over Capcom's website following the announcement of Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3 have unearthed eight new character images that could very well be the rest of the update's new lineup. Frank West? Iron Fist? Rocket Raccoon!? Yes, please.

This morning Capcom outed Ultimate Marvel Vs. Capcom 3, debuting four of the 12 new characters coming in the November retail release: Ghost Rider, Strider, Hawkeye, and Firebrand.

Now a reader named Joey directs us to a series of character portraits located on Capcom's servers depicting popular Marvel and Capcom characters in the same style as those previously announced. Capcom fan favorites like Phoenix Wright, Ace Attorney, Dead Rising's Frank West, and Resident Evil's Nemesis mingling with Marvel's Iron Fist and Dr. Strange.

Are they legit? We've reached out to Capcom for comment. I can say I'd be completely satisfied with this lineup, and if there can't be Squirrel Girl, Rocket Raccoon is a suitable replacement.

Okay, pre-order bonus costumes.

Row 1 is from Gamestop: X-Men Evolution X-23, Morlock Storm, Casual Morrigan, and SF Alpha Chun-Li.

Row 3 is from Amazon: Doomwar Dr. Doom, Classic Sentinel, First Appearance Hiryu, and Mech-Gouki/Cyber Akuma.

Row 2 is a bit more ambiguous. Despite floating around the 'net on every fighting game fansite, NOBODY has declared where it's from, and honestly, I'm not certain on all of them.

S.T.A.R.S. Wesker is a given, and M.O.D.O.K. is definitely an Elvis impersonator (Mental Organism Designed Only for Karaoke? I heard it was something from NextWave but my first thought was the M-dok parody on Megas XLR). Viper looks like a Bucky cosplayer and I have no idea what Skrull correlates to.

Interestingly only the Amazon set has any characters that are new to the game, with Hiryu.
