If Back-Alley-Brawler combatted the drugs gangs in the Seventies - (I assume he was at least 20 yrs old) - then he is nearer 60 now?. O.o

@SiML

Yes. He's getting up there, along with the core Phalanx are at this point.

Positron, Synapse and Manticore were all at least in their 20's in the mid 80's according to the lore. Ms. Liberty is 31 or so; pretty old for a sidekick in a miniskirt.

The others like Statesman, Sister Psyche and Numina at least have powers that keep them young. The rest are just lucky, or there's an untold story about how they stay so well preserved.

Signature story Arcs...A year ago they were saying this feature in DCUO was horrible because you feel like a sidekick...now they're adding it to their game.

@Yellowdancer And also adding in content pioneered by Champions Online first, such as the flying carpet.

It's been an interesting shift for Paragon Studios.

Another example of why I don't want to see developers doing these sort of video's, dude looked and sounded sick.

They forgot to include Synapse in the Vidoc it seems.

@YellowDancer
City of Heroes have in the old content sort of handled the player characters as "sidekicks", which they started to change. In the ongoing signature story arc you are playing more as one of multiple characters either with or against the Freedom Phalanx. Not the same as DCUO, IMHO.

@UnSub Flying carpets was introduced in EQ2 a few years ago, not quite pioneered by Champions. But yeah, Paragon Studios are obviously looking at what the others in the superhero space are doing.

@Sente Sorry about that - I was thinking in the superhero space, not MMOs more generally.

It is nice to see an MMO launched in 2003 or 04 (aside from WoW) that is still healthy and vibrant.
