Doodle A Day: Day 111 Zangief
Zangief most recently made an appearance in the trailer for Wreck-It Ralph an upcoming movie about a video game villian who wants to be a good guy. Now if you havn’t seen the trailer you can watch it below and if you’ve seen it already watch it again, cause it’s awesome.
While the trailer is amazing and all accounts I have one big problem with it. Zangief is not now or has never been a bad guy!!! He might be a big scary looking Russian guy with a habit of pile-driving people into the ground, but none of that make him a bad guy.
In the games Zangief is seen as his country’s national hero, his goal in most of the Street Fighter games is to display the glory of Mother Russia to the world, he’s even gone up against Shadaloo (the series big evil group) a couple times.
And really can a man who enjoys cossack dancing with Mikhail Gorbachev really be considered evil? I don’t think so.
