Fans of the Street Fighter game franchise may wonder what happened to the sonic-booming American soldier Guile after all these years. In the game, he was fresh off a tour-of-duty and ready to defeat Major Bison's minions in the greatest fighting tournament of all time. But, it has been about twenty years now and the more than a few Chun Li Spinning Star kicks to the face probably took their toll. Bison may have lost, but Guile is very likely a disheveled pile of former guts and glory these days. Exactly like Jim Carrey's character from the upcoming Kick-Ass 2.

Seriously look at that hair. Look at that mess of snaggled teeth. Look at those grubby fatigues. If you were to do an alcoholic-speed veteran-enhanced age-progression on the street fighting hero, he would be the spitting image Carrey's Colonel Stars and Stripes character. We know from the comics that the good Colonel is a born-again former mob henchman who devotes his life (and his dogs) to good-deed-doing of the vigilante kind. But come on, guys, we all know he's pretty much Guile after twenty years' worth of benders.
