....Neither....are you... J.Max.... You... only....appeared in 3 games....and never....even appeared in a crossover... You... didn't even get chosen for SNK's card game. lol.

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" fighting game character. To his credit, he's a memorable design in World Heroes.

Even so, Johnny Max is still pretty generic at the end of the day. His moveset features a few halfway-interesting special moves, but many of his animations are a bit clunky and off-balance. Compared to other 2D fighting game characters of the era, he's definitely missing something. One thing I do like about J.Max is his creepy "shadow face". This guy was doing Captain Falcon eyes long before Captain Falcon!
