    Depends on what power set's they have, i doubt that they will come close to having as many as COX or CO and same with char customization but we will see.

    I would be a scrapper or w.e they have so:

     
    1. Duel Swords 
    2. Regen (self heal like wolverine)
    3. Teleportation 
    4. Wind Manipulation
    5. super reflexes

     

    MMO's iv played etc:

    Currently playing:
    .Lotro

    Retired From best to worst:
    .CoX, SWG, AoC, WoW, Eve online, R.O.S.E online, Kal Online, Runescape, Other F2P mmo's

    Waiting for:
    .SGW
    .Champions Online

    The Devs in one of the various videos kicking around Gametrailers stated that if it's in the DC Universe as a power, it'll be available to the player.  With that in mind there's only one power I'd choose:

    A Green Lantern Power Ring.

    Need to fly?  Check.  Shields?  Check.  Create any item you can imagine?  Check.  Communicate long distances?  Check.  Translate foreign languages?  Check.  In the old days, they could even be used to turn invisible.  Given that the game's set in current continuity also means that that whole Weakness to Yellow thing is no more as well.

    Drawbacks include having to recharge the Ring and having a whole slew of Sinestro Corps members wanting you dead.  Not to mention that whole Blackest Night thing that's scheduled for next year...

    Sounds like a blast to me.

    Personally, I'm hoping they allow some real flexibility and creativity when it comes to power selection.  My biggest complaint with CoX is having to select a class.  I'm of the old school mindset where superheros should be able to mix and match powers as much as they wish without being limited because of a class.  Plus, sticking people to certain power pools kind of kills creativity.

    I'm kind of hoping they approach powers like this: you potentially have access to any power.  At character creation, you get a certain amount of points to spend on powers.  Maybe some powers that might be too overpowered if combo'd right are more expensive making it harder to have them earlier.  You buy your initial powers, then with experience points you can choose to either increase the effectiveness of your current powers or you can buy new powers.  Getting to Superman's power level would mean tons upon tons of experience, and to be honest, you'd probably have a level cap before you could get that high: Superman's essentially the pinnacle of power in DC.

    But you could probably be Supergirl.

    Telekinesis (flying = lifting myself)

    Shapeshifting

    I'm really not sure what else. I've wanted those two powers for as long as I can remember. Maybe invisibility/insubstantiation? X-ray vision? Energy blasts (as long as I didn't have to wear Cyclops' visor)? Not needing to breathe (underwater & outer space) would be nice.

    This would still work with your power ring idea. The GLs have to train to use their rings to the fullest, so it makes sense that as a GL just starting out, you wouldn't be able to do everything that Hal or John are able to do.

    The less you expect, the more you'll be surprised. Hopefully, pleasantly so.

    Yep.  I love the idea of having a versatile superhero.  It always seems that if you want to play a hero with super strength, you're always saddled with "tank" like abilities.  Bah, sez I!  I want a guy who's actually not that tough, he just happens to have super strength.  Instead of flight, maybe teleportation.  Eye beams?  Boo hiss, I want to be able to shoot spikes from my hands.  Really, in a system like CoX there's a whole bunch of Marvel and DC characters you wouldn't be able to make.  Even Iron Man can be tough.  Many systems don't allow you to take a character who shoots energy and also give them stuff like super strength or other tank like abilities.

    You wouldn't be able to touch a Green Lantern with a 10' pole in CoX.

    Green Lantern-like abilities I think would be one of the hardest to program--especially if you're only ale to use any 4 powers at a given time. If the power of the ring is limited only by willpower and imagination, there's really no end to what it's capable of. There are the basic powers (space bubble, flight) that GL does frequently, but how often does GL form a different shape for a different task? I don't know if I'd rather have limited ring powers or have no ring powers at all.

  • TecknicTecknic Member Posts: 458

    I'm not wild about having too many powers.  Just one or two that are used interestingly.

    For instance, a character with super speed that is also armed with a scythe.

    My top five powers would be....

    1. Invulnerbility- Can't feel pain and nothing would beable to penetrate my skin.

    2. Flight- self explanatory I think.

    3. Fire manipulation- I would beable to control and create fire using my mind.

    4. Keen Senses- I would have keen senses..duh.

    5. Super Strength- My strength would be super.

     

    I think though another conversation we should add is what would your weeknesses be? and would you be a hero or a villian?

    1. Self-propelled flight.

    2. Under-water breathing.

    3. Invisibility.

    4. Rapid healing.

    5. The ability to convert liberals in to intelligent human beings, or at least make them quit whining.

    Trammies need to stop polluting the MMORPG landscape. They already have enough games in which to emote hugs and sell garbage by the banks.
