Who's a good character for starting out in Bleeding Edge?
Gizmo is probably the best starting character and one of the best overall characters. I was always top damage playing her and she's really fun to play.
El Bastardo is the most OP (or he was the last time I played the game anyways). He deals good DPS and if played with decent healer he's basically invincible.
Kulev was my favorite support, his passive heals were really good and he can also deal out decent damage.
Maeve and Buttercup were my favorite duo (if you're playing with a friend). If you stick together their Cage/Yank abilities make it impossible for people to run away (which is something that everyone does on Bleeding Edge) and are great for instakilling Zero Cool.
