The lights are on
When NetherRealm's Mortal Kombat reboot arrived in 2011, expectations of the fighting genre were redefined. Now, on the eve of Injustice: Gods Among Us' release, Capcom has commented on one of the biggest discrepancies between their titles and NetherRealm's: story.
The conversation about improved single-player content has been an active one for years. Today though, fans of Street Fighter and brethren were given hope. In a reply on the Capcom Unity forums, Capcom senior vice-president Christian Svensson shared this,
Maybe we'll finally learn why Ryu solves all of his problems with violence (and if he ever washes that red headband). I've always wondered what kind of product Guile uses in his hair. Finally, the biggest mystery of them all will be solved. What does the "M" in M. Bison stand for?

Seriously Game Informer?
The M. is for 'Mike' - 'Mike Bison', which was what the North American Balrog was named in the Japanese original (as a parody of Mike Tyson). They switched the names in the North American release to avoid legal drama. It's pretty common knowledge, or failing that, it's smack at the top of the wikipedia entry
What do you...Capcom copying Netherrealms Single player strong story line in their fighting games(MK, iNjustice)...... That was something Capcom lacked in their fighting franchise sadly!!!!
A true fighter must have a good reason for why they do what they do. What are people without purpose?
Love my job, since I've been bringing in $5600… I sit at home, music playing while I work in front of my new iMac that I got now that I'm making it online.(Click Home information)
Interested in seeing how the storyline would be developed. Also, whether or not, they would pull from previous games in the Street Fighter series.
What the heck happened to Tekken X Street Fighter????
the M. was for Mike because the name was intended for Balrog he was originally Mike Bison and M. Bisons name was Vega and Vega's name was Balrog
Id be more interested in Zangiefs love life..
thank god....those fighting game have bad stories for the most part but doa is just garbage lmao
The M in M. Bison stands for Major.
Lets just hope they don't neglect the stellar gameplay to incorperate some weird campaign gimmick. The 2D fighter has allways been a game to sit on the cough and play with friends, to me atleast.
I'd definitely like to have more of a story in the next Super Street Fighter...
