Note: The name of the Female Rookie Maddie Collins applies only to IDW Comics Canon. See Trivia and References for more information


Female Rookie is a playable character in the Ghostbusters: The Video Game (Stylized Versions).

GameplayEdit

The player as a female is only cosmetic, and no gameplay changes occur when playing as her, including dialogue and their subtitles. The few times that the rookie's gender is mentioned (usually in third-person between other characters) indicate it is still the male character. Egon's early line of "He's our new Experimental Equipment Technician." has not been changed to "she". So everything really applies to this character that applies to the male counterpart.

HistoryEdit

IDW ComicsEdit

In Thanksgiving 1991, the three Rookies Bryan Welsh, Maddie Collins, and Chad Fuller made newspaper headlines for their part in the battle with the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man in Times Square. After completing the internship, Collins chose not to continue working with the Ghostbusters.[1][2]

PersonalityEdit

Like the male rookie she is quiet.

TriviaEdit

  • On page 22 of Ghostbusters Issue #4, a newspaper article in the PCOC file for the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man lists the Female Rookie's name as Maddie Collins and contains a photo of her.
    • Writer/Artist Tristan Jones conceived the name "Maddie Collins" a long time ago before the ongoing comic book series happened and incorporated it into the PCOC material.[3][4]
  • On page 28 of Ghostbusters Issue #9, Peter refers to the Rookie then the other two from the Stylized Versions.[5]
