Mickey Rogers

BIO:

Mickey Rogers was a professional boxer, but was expelled from the ranks after he accidentally killed a man in the ring. He currently stalks Southtown seeking opponents to vent his anger and frustration on, and enters the tournament for the same reason. When he debuted, Mickey had long hair, worn in dreadlocks. In AOF2, he has short hair. 

In the first Art of Fighting, Mickey becomes a small time hood who works for Mr. Big so that he can get money as a street hustler. in Art of Fighting 2, Mickey has since reformed, wanting to get back into the professional boxing circuit. In Mickey's AOF2 ending, his trainer Pops (who is visible in Mickey's stage as well) informs him that his time has come, and he has a title bout. We then see Mickey training for the fight, confident that 'Mickey the Mauler' is going to be the next champion of the world. His Burning Upper is similar to Geese Howard's Reppuken.

Mickey was sporting pink long before it was "cool" for dudes to wear pink. (Just kidding. It was never cool for dudes to wear pink.) Just kidding, again. Still, wear pink at your own risk. Mickey from AOF was a pretty awkward-looking character when he debuted as a bad guy. What's this guy doing fighting on the street, fighting in tight-ass pink shorts? I'm not gonna ask. But... props to the matching pink headband and pink shoes. You be you, Mickey.

Mickey seemingly "cleaned up" in AOF2... suddenly looking like a young Mohammad Ali (clone). However, for his design and impact on fighting games... I think it was too little too late. One word. Balrog. That guy went somewhere. Anyhow, Mickey is still a classic and mostly forgotten 90's 2D fighting game character. He's painfully boring in some ways, but he added something to the colorful rosters of AOF and AOF2.
