Reader Discussion: What Fictional Non-Video Game Characters Belong In A Fighting Game?

Leatherface and the titular Alien joined Mortal Kombat today – a series which has recently looked to pop culture to populate its roster. Other games like Soul Calibur have also opted to include characters from outside its franchise to appear as playable fighters. What characters, who aren't from a video game, haven't appeared in a fighting game, but probably should?

To kick off this discussion, I've selected Indiana Jones. He could probably do some damage with that whip in a fighting game and he can throw a punch. But more importantly, he can also take a punch, so it wouldn't be too weird to see him lose a fight in a fighting game.

How about you? What fictional established non-video game character do you think belongs in a fighting game?
