....Neither....are you... J.Max.... You... only....appeared in 3 games....and never....even appeared in a crossover... You... didn't even get in SNK's card game. *mic drop*
Back when World
Heroes 2 hit the arcades, I'll admit I picked J. Max more than once. He looked kinda cool, I guess. A football player in a fighting game had never been done before. ADK actually put some effort into trying to make this meathead a "cool" fighter, and they did fairly well.
Even so, Johnny Max is still pretty generic at the end
of the day. His moveset features a few halfway original attacks, but many of his animations are just goofy. Compared to other 2D fighting game characters of the era, he's missing something (originality / personality / etc). One thing I do like about J.Max is his creepy "shadow
face". This guy was doing Captain Falcon eyes before Captain Falcon!
