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