Charlie Nash has been a fan favorite character in the Street Fighter series for years and finally makes his comeback in Street Fighter V, although noticeably a little… different. For those who are unfamiliar with him, continue on for a quick history lesson.
First mentioned in Street Fighter II: The World Warrior (1991) by Guile during his quest for revenge; Nash was a lieutenant in the U.S. Air Force and one of Guile's best friends. Although it was hinted that M.Bison was involved in Charlie's disappearance in the past, it was never really fully explained…
…until the Street Fighter Alpha series, that is. In Street Fighter Alpha II (1996) we see firsthand that a helicopter controlled by M.Bison's forces make quick work of Nash as M.Bison gets away. Initially presumed to be dead by both friends and foes alike, Nash's return shows that his story is far from over.
