Given all the fliers I see in this game, I'm not sure how popular Earth powers could be. Besides, excluding Terra (and Clayface I suppose if you REALLY want to count him) were there even any earth based heroes? The only other thing I can think of is Earthbenders :P

I was hoping for some sort of Atomic powers because I have a fondness for the Atom, oh well maybe next time.

There have been 3 or 4. In DC Earth control is usually mixed with gravity control so that flying is not an issue. Marvel says sand and dust can be weaponized by earth controllers.

But in the end, why is it an issue when COH had earth powers 5 years ago.?

It's not really an issue, just odd when still don't have others like wind/water/atomic, all of which are more widely represented in the DCU (Red Tornado, Aquaman, the Atom all off the top of my head).

And no Batman Beyond? BOO! That is an issue for me in that Terry McGuinness is, quite possibly, the coolest hero ever.

@Vic Fontaine Batman Beyond isn't really part of the DCU that this game is based on.

Don't care. Comics do mirror verses/multiple realities/what if scenarios/other dimensions/split timelines/dreams/ect/ect/ect all the time. Continuity be damned I want some BB love.

Atomic will likely be next given that it's the only remaining power that was in beta that hasn't found it's way to the live game (given that earth is next).

Actually Assault Weapons and Teleport were also in beta. There were weapon styles that got cut also.

One of things I dislike about the structuring of DCUO's powersets is that its very hard to imagine how these new playsets work in game. I wish they would have followed the comic's archetypes for powers as well as travel powers.

Well, this doesn't seem to bode well for the future of DCUO.

I missed the last 3x Station Cash holiday (which was really just a day), but the next time I catch one in my inbox, I'm definitely going to drop $10 and buy the three DLC packs. I really enjoyed the game on release and thought it was a fantastic distraction from more "srs" games like WoW and with the extra population from the F2P conversion I think it's in a great position to keep that job. Unfortunately, as a Premium (once monthly), I think I get just 6 slots, which means that plenty of my 30s are going to get deleted. Oh well, it takes hardly a week of casual play to cap out in DCUO either way.

Darkseid will invade. I've been very dissapointed in the lack of Apokolyps in this game.

Or maybe it will end with a Brainiac/Luthor fusion. I'd like that.

@(Unverified) It will be interesting how they do that with Future Batman. Maybe villains will get some narrative love and Future Batman will be a "Big Good" and not a "Big Bad".
