Street Fighter (ストリートファイター), commonly abbreviated as SF, is a popular series of fighting games in which the players pit combatants from around the world, each with their own special moves, against one another. Street Fighter II is largely credited with setting the standards for all future games to come, and is regarded as a true classic in the series, (though still not the first game ever released). Capcom released the first game in the series in August 1987. In 1989, a beat em' up called Final Fight was created by the team who eventually would develop Street Fighter II. Eventually the Final Fight series merged into the Street Fighter canon when the Street Fighter Alpha series was made, giving many Final Fight characters frequent appearances in the games while some Street Fighter characters appeared in the Final Fight games as well.
Power of the Verse
Street Fighter is a significantly powerful verse, with characters like Akuma possessing island busting punches, as well as hax like M. Bison's ability to mind attack his enemy. Unfortunately, many of its characters are largely featless, but its strongest characters make up for that.

The UDON SF comics are not considered as part of the canon continuity.
They are only based on the games, and made with little input from Capcom. This leads to differences in locations, orders of events, power levels (Dudley defeating Ryu, for example), personalities (See Karin) and backstories (See Sakura):
Finally, as revealed in Street Fighter Legends: Cammy #1, the comics share a universe with the UDON Darkstalkers comic.
