> Axel Stone: Either take his design from the most recent SoR game or kick him out, like Ryo he just doesn't offer much to the party, he's just a dude who punchs and has a bland design.
Personally, I think the main issue here was the choice for the antagonist from SoR. I think his role would be bigger than it was had they actually chose Mr. X instead of Robot Axel dispite the circumstances. You would be ok if Axel did come back but this time with Mr. X as the actual antagonist this time?
He should have his most recent SoR design and be paired by Blaze and i might consider him.
