However I wouldn't like that :(, it would make sense however i think is already pretty clear he's not good enough to beat up the mishimas. He couldn't do squat against Azazel, however is true he did somehow beaten Jin in his normal form.
However at this point imo the only character that could possibly go 1 on 1 with Jin and have a chance of winning if Jin goes all out is Kazuya (of course this is assuming they both make use of the Devil gene since that would be their full potential).
However before I say anything else I gotta say i'm biased towards Jin, unlike a lot of people who seem to hate Jin.
If i were to make a top 10 favorite characters of all games I played Jin Kazama is totally in there imo so I'm very biased towards him (even though i try to stay objective i realize some ideas which for me may seem objective may not be as objective as i think).
The only reason I mentioned that is because personally I have no problem at all with Jin raping everyone xD since he's my favorite character =P
So a male character that just appeared from nowhere in the most recent canonical entry is alright to beat the mishimas, but if it was a female it wouldnt be? Btw he did beat azazel, he couldnt kill it without the devil gene though.
I dont see the devil gene as really part of tbeir iwn power, since it comes from devil. And apparently devil comes from azazel. And like i said in another thread, i would like Jun to whoop Jin's ass.
Lars appeared out of no where in T6 so he had a game to establish himself, he wouldn't just pop out and kill everyone (if he were to do it in T7. Also if it would be a female it would make no sense for the Tekken series because let's face it TEKKEN is not a GIRL POWER game... take it as you want to but is quite obvious the main characters up until this point were always males (except for Jun, and Alisa who sucks lol)
Now don't get me wrong it would still be stupid as hell, but I can see SOME LOGIC in it. Basically the reason why Lars had to appear is quite simple really, they turned jin into "in the gray character", you can't exactly say he entirely evil since his goal was to rid the world of Azazel but his methods weren't exactly rightous so he is definetely not a hero anymore (at least not one to be a role model ROFL).
Now every storyline needs to have a hero (a good guy to be an even match for the rest of the villains), hence they created Lars as a mean to place a bit more balance in the struggle (again the whole story is about the Mishima family feud and their struggle for world domination or attaining absolute power, Kazuya and Heihachi and even Jinpachi after T5)
Now with Jinpachi obviously dead in T5, and Kazuya and Heihachi obvious villains who are more or less unredeamable (I mean it would be pretty strange to see Kazuya go back to his old self and not be a total ass lol) there was a need for some balance.
Though now that I brought that up I have to admit if they brought Jun back instead of creating Lars and basically have her convince Jin to get back to his old self would've made for a much better story arc than the old one. Though it might've been a bit cheesy xD (but i doubt it beats SUPERHERO FALLS INLOVE WITH CYBORG GIRL cheesy lol).
