TMB characters you'd want to see return?

I think we can all agree that many of the characters in Black deserved another outing in the series. With their fleshed-out backstories and dynamic personalities, it's surprising (to me, at least) that the vast majority of the newcomers were never seen again.

If another TM game were to come out that would allow for these weirdos to return, which ones would you want to see the most? Would you want them to keep their original Black vehicles, or would you want to see them drive something new? What do you think would draw them back to the tournament after witnessing the carnage left in its wake?

Post your answers below.

EDIT: Added a poll. Decided to leave off the contestants who die in their stories (Preacher, John Doe) as they probably wouldn't return in their original forms.
Also decided to leave off recurring characters in the series (Needles Kane, Mr. Grimm, Axel) and focus on the newer characters. Black is the sole exception, as he's never been given a proper story of his own.

Technically Black is not an all original TMB character, since he first appeared in Twisted Metal 1.
Just thought I'd nitpick

Oh, whoops.

I voted for No-Face, but Black would be my 2nd pick, then probably the son of Charlie Kane (who really deserves a real name lol)

Honestly, all of them. But I'll give the vote for Black because his story and purpose are really interesting. He's thought to have been sent by the Calypso of "a more colorful world" to kill the one in TM:B, which is in Sweet Tooth's head. Cage is great because he wants to beat Sweet Tooth, Raven is neat since she's trying to fight against other evil-doers now as a kind of vigilante or "heroine," and No Face was pretty cool. Also, I wouldn't mind Charlie Kane's son getting more spotlight, because it's always neat to get to see more of Marcus/Needles Kane's family and the problems that stem from them.

Kind of hated Raven, tbh.
Much prefer Mortimer as the driver of Shadow, and I don't see her as a capable vigilante. Keep in mind a lot of those "Twisted Metal: Lost" story continuations were lazily conceived and I do not consider them canon except maybe Black's because that one at least gives Black the backstory he didn't have in TMB. There are also some inconsistencies in those TML bios that contradict stuff from TMB.
The TM Lost bio for Raven basically describes her as someone who is exactly like Mortimer from TM2 except with voodoo dolls and instead of going after Calypso, she's going after all the freaks and killers of Midtown who prey on the innocent.
Lets get one thing straight with Raven. Her magic came from Calypso, it's not innate. Calypso made the magic voodoo dolls, so Raven isn't really a magic witch, she got lucky and stumbled upon some magic, and even says in TMB that she'd only ever use those dolls again if she ever runs into her rotten parents. *which indicates killing isn't really her thing. She doesn't sound like she could take on Midtown's worst.
But in TML she's a vigilante like The Punisher?
Get out of town! (or midtown!)
What Raven was in TMB was the young, trendy girl with an attitude and shitty parents....... hmmm who else was like that? ...........the driver of Grasshopper, Krista Sparks!

And that's my rant on Raven.

*Furthermore, it's possible that the presence of Raven's voodoo dolls in Calypso's trophy case in TM2012 is an indication she dead  Grin

Additionally, the Lost storyline for Dollface stated that she was transitioning from a young girl to a young woman after the events of Black. However, Black took place 7 years after she graduated from college, worked for Mr. Creel, and was locked inside the mask. Wasn't she already a young woman when she participated in the contest? I'd expected her to be in her late 20's or something. Most likely was originally intended for her first draft storyline when her father nailed the mask to her face when she was just a child, but still.

Its late but eh.

Mosh makes a very good point about twisted metal lost here that most of the stories were simply place holders since the game was never completed.

My favorite out of this group was Doll face. While Mr.Ash was a interesting character on his own, (possibly being the devil himself.), I found dollface to be a interesting character.

well, this is a difficult choice. this game has some great characters and it would be hard to pick one. my contenders would be dollface, faceless, and black. dollface because id like to see more done with the character (and pretend her persona in the ps3 tm never existed), faceless because i really liked him. i liked his character and his backstory and crap. and black because he deserved a proper story. but if i were to count characters who died, preacher would be at the top of my list.

No face is easily my favorite original character in Black, his story although repetitive when compared to the rest (getting revenge on someone who wronged him) was effective enough and his look and vehicle is pretty fucking boss. I don't give a shit he shouldn't be able to drive lol

One thing i would change about him is the special, its fairly weak and doesn't fit him, maybe a super-ram/spike attack would suit him better.

Dollface was ok but her story threads water, Black was cool though, apparently in the beta he was sent by someone else to kill Calypso and his storymode had a narration (although it was a placeholder)
