Anti Air options
- Geese Howard focuses mainly with his hcf+B counter for Anti Air which deals great damage. In exchange of this, Geese has some really crappy Anti Air.
- Only really covers directly above Geese's Head has very little horizontal range. Useful for crossup attempts
- Only good for catching really deep jump attacks
- Unless you have your opponent cornered. You won't see this often because it has a really short range to come out.
- Covers alot of area around Geese. If you can get down the pretzel motion. It's a useful AA for when you have a super or red life. Geese's only real useful AA other than his hcf+B counter.
