Create My Champion: Week zero

With beta and launch only a month away, I thought it would be fun to do a temporary weekly feature not unlike our popular Choose My Adventure series but for Champions Online. The difference here is this feature will focus on the character creator, power sets and travel powers. You tell me what...

In Champions Online, where everyone is supposed to be a super-powered hero, how do you explain those heroes beating the snot out of each other?
