BIO:

M. Bison is the leader and creator of Shadaloo, an elusive criminal and military organization. Bison has been working on a lethal, mysterious energy that greatly increases his fighting ability, what he refers to as "Psycho Power". He trained along with two other unknown students and learned the Psycho Power to become more powerful and achieve his aspirations of world domination. Bison has hired many members into Shadaloo including Sagat, Vega, Balrog, Birdie, C. Jack, Juni, Juli and Cammy.

Bison hears of a fighter named Ryu who recently defeated his henchman, Sagat. Bison decides to recruit Ryu and begins to search for him. Around the same time, he is confronted by Charlie who questions him on his informants within the U.S. military. Bison refuses to talk and instead attacks Charlie, and believes to have killed him. Bison is later confronted by Rose who uses a similar power to his, and she tells him to change his ways. Though Rose comes out on top in the ensuing conflict, she is unable to do Bison any serious harm.

By the time of SFA3, the Psycho Power begins exceeding the limits of his body. Having predicted this event, M. Bison had his scientists engineer a body that he could transfer his essence to in the form of Cammy: a genetically engineered young woman using Bison's DNA as a template. He included her in the Dolls: his elite squad of brainwashed young women who serve as assassins. However, over the course of SFA3, Cammy's brainwashing begins to weaken and she goes rogue. He sends Vega to retrieve her, and then Juli after Vega fails. Around the same time, Bison sends Juni to gather data on Ryu. Bison finally finds Ryu and eventually subjects him to his Psycho Power. When Sagat objects, Bison tells Sagat he can finally have his rematch.

Meanwhile, Charlie, Guile, and Chun Li are on a mission to stop Bison. After learning that the bombardment of Shadaloo was called off due to corruption in Interpol and Bison's manipulation, Chun-Li realized that they would have to destroy the base themselves. With the help of Cammy, they were able to destroy the Shadaloo base. While Chun-Li and Guile escape the base (which they have rigged with explosives), Charlie keeps fighting the resurrected Bison to allow their escape, and apparently sacrifices his own life. M. Bison's soul, however, ends up surviving the explosion and despite the destruction of the Psycho Drive, takes control of Rose. It is revealed that, while trying to master Psycho Power, M. Bison had to expel all the humanity and good in his soul to accommodate and supplant the intense energy the power gives him, and that Rose is actually the formation of all of M. Bison's good energy. He stays inside of Rose's body until his Shadaloo scientists forge a new body for him.

After Bison was resurrected, he ordered the creation of at least 26 androids by S.I.N., the weapons division of Shadaloo. #15 was chosen to be the new head of S.I.N., demonstrating a higher level of intelligence than the others. #15 was referred to indirectly as "Bison's right hand". Bison also had a Korean official murdered along with his family. The official's daughter, Juri, survives, however, and #15 gives her cybernetic enhancements, deciding she can be used. #15 takes the name Seth and makes his own attempt at world domination, beginning with the announcement of a new tournament. But Juri has a plan of her own and tries to pit Bison and Seth against each other in revenge for her parents' murder.

Some time later, Bison holds the second World Warrior tournament to get revenge against those who destroyed the Psycho Drive, and to lure out Ryu once more. His Psycho Power seems to have diminished since the destruction of the Psycho Drive, but he is still very powerful. Bison is later defeated by Akuma, who uses the Shun Goku Satsu on him.

Sure, Bison might look like some random third world leader to some people, but there's a lot more to his design than a pair of nazi pants. Firstly, Bison is probably the most memorable and recognizable fighting game boss of all time. He's got the unmatched evil grin, the ultra over-confident personality, and that trademark red suit & cape just goes without saying. His fighting style is also well-defined and has translated very well to a wide variety of games.

Even though Bison resembles other manga characters like Washizaki from the manga Riki-Oh and Kato from Doomed Megalopolis, his fighting style is completely unique to him. Bison also has lasting appeal like it's nobodies business... he's still a badass after all these years. My favorite appearance / version of Bison would have to be in Street Fighter Alpha 3, AKA beefy Bison. He also translated well to Street Fighter IV. His Ultra #2 is a favorite of mine.
