Metro City, a well-known Crime Capital, has been ruled by violence
and death for many years. A fact which the newly-elected mayor and
former Street Fighter, Mike Haggar, plans to change.

At the center of the problem is the huge gang known as Mad Gear.
Mad Gear controls all of the major criminal activity in the city. When
they learned of Haggar's plans, they took immediate action to bring
this new mayor under their control.

Sometime in 1989...

HAGGAR "Hello, Mike Haggar here."
??? "Hee hee hee, Mr. Haggar. So pleased to make your acquaintance. I believe you know who I am.
Don't hang up! We have a little business proposition for you... your daughter for your cooperation,
and we'll throw the regular monthly bonus to your salary we offered before."
HAGGAR "What? What's happened to Jessica? Who is this?!"
??? "Not so fast, Mike. Turn on your TV."

HAGGAR "You son of a... What have you done to her?"
DAMND "Nothing yet... But we'd enjoy the opportunity... Listen to reason, man.
Why make your job difficult? Just let us do as we please like the mayor before you did."

CODY "Guy! Jessica was kidnapped!"
GUY "Jessica?!"
CODY "My sweetheart since childhood."
GUY "The Mad Gears must pay! She's my friend, too. Count me in."

In Metro City, they're serving cocktails. Molotov cocktails.
