It would seem that spandex hasn't gone out of style in the MMO world. Kotaku is reporting
that Cryptic Studios
told them that one million superheroes have been created in Champions Online
to date. That's a lot of different heroic concepts, costumes, and back-stories! What's even more fun when you think about it? That means there are a million nemeses running around in there too. Cryptic has created a veritable cornucopia of comic-book evil.
In a quick survey of the team here at Massively, the average seems to be hovering at 4 characters per Champions Online
account. If our completely unscientific average is anywhere near accurate, that would put Champions Online
in the neighborhood of approximately 250,000 accounts, which certainly isn't bad for having launched recently
. With all the crime still out there on Millennium City streets, though, we hope those heroes will get to work -- there are still a lot more bad guys to beat down!
