Long Time City of Heroes Player "The Defuser" Wins Reality TV Show "Who Wants To Be A Superhero?"
Wednesday, September 12, 2007

The City of Heroes Development Team wants to extend their congratulations to “The Defuser” for his victory in winning the reality TV show “Who Wants To Be A Superhero?” The Defuser is also known on the City of Heroes community forums as Detective2416 and has been a long time player of the game.

To check out the show, take a look at the Who Wants to be a Superhero website.

Or, join us on the Official Forums to congratulate The Defuser on his win!

I've watched both seasons of the Sci-Fi series, and while the series is somewhat corny, at least it INSPIRES people!

BTW, according to The Defuser himself (aka Detective2416), he wasn't the only City of Heroes to go from cyberspace to real-world. Mindset/Omnicron was also supposedly another CoH player who got the chance to take things to the next step.

So congrats Defuser! Maybe your character can become an honorary member of the Freedom Phalanx! I would certainly love to see more of CoH connections!


Why guys create girl characters

So you're probably wondering... why do guys create girl characters to play in the online world?

Well the secret is finally revealed... and no, it's NOT what you think!

THIS is the reason!

By the way, a few things about online girl characters: They don't complain about the clothes they wear. They don't spend your money doing online shopping. They really kick ass and don't complain about breaking a nail. They don't have bad hair days. They don't get moody. They don't spend their time watching Paragon Idol. And in the City of Heroes and City of Villains, female characters don't get fat so they don't have to obsess about their weight.


New Players

There have been several new players added to the world of City of Heroes and City of Villains.

Justice Server - City of Heroes: FyreLife

Champion Server - City of Villains: Spartan Warlady, The Reverend NeoCon

Official descriptions for each of them can be found in the Player's list.
