I read Lavis' bio from the Japanese website and it doesn't mention her sex. I seriously doubt this is another Poison issue, but a simple translation mistake. The Japanese language doesn't rely on gender-specific pronouns as much as English does and it seems likely the translator wrote the text without knowing whether the character was a man or woman.

By the way, I've managed to find rips of the animated character illustrations used during the conversation scenes. The ones from the official website are upscaled. I don't have much to say about the game itself, since I don't have an iPhone (it looks pretty nice for an iPhone game), but at least the artwork is gorgeous.

I consider Poison a woman. Capcom was forced to retcon the character and turn the woman into transsexuals, which I think is worse. You saw a lot of homophobia in early 90's beat-em-ups

Sorry, but that video is a bit inaccurate. Poison and Roxy were already established to be transsexuals during the game's development, it's not just something they made up for the Super Famicom version's manual. The design sheets for the arcade version have an illustration of both of them labelled "newhalf".

I seriously don't know how anyone could take a look at Poison's sprite and death cry in the original Final Fight and think she was meant to be a born woman. She looks and sounds way too masculine. I know the promotional illustration gave her a more feminine look (which they continued using for later appearances), but those could've been drawn after the fact. That's my two cents.

It doesn't really matter anymore, since Capcom is now pandering to the crowd who wants Poison to be a woman by leaving her true sex ambiguous in Street Fighter X Tekken.

whoah, I had no idea that was Capcom's intention all along! Thanks for the info/translation and that documentary!

I always find this stuff fascinating. How Zangief was hinted at being gay, or how unwilling Capcom US was in retaining the boss names in SF2.

I don't think Zangief was ever supposed to be gay though. All the speculations started when a fan-written plot guide misinterpreted Zangief's official profile in the Japanese version of Alpha 3, which stated that Zangief disliked "cute girls". I don't think that automatically means that he prefers men, it could also mean that he's more attracted to older mature women as opposed to teenage girls. I always though he and Rainbow Mika had a thing together.
