Character Analysis MVC3 Part 11
Welcome back to Character Analysis.This issue will be covering Resident Evil's mastermind Albert Wesker and everyone's friendly neighborhood Spiderman.
Wesker - The commander of the STARS Alpha Team, he was actually a double agent for the Umbrella Corporation. He lured the members of STARS to the Spencer Mansion to fight the mutated creatures to collect battle data. Supposedly killed after releasing Tyrant, he survived by injecting himself with an experimental virus that gave him superhuman strength, speed, and regeneration in exchange for his humanity. Afterward, he directed events from behind-the-scenes, leading to Umbrella's downfall. His betrayal of Umbrella was spurred by him conspiring with Tricell Pharmaceutical Company to work on a new virus to end all humanity.
