Heroes, but where are the villains?

Champions Online is made by Cryptic; Cryptic made City of Heroes; and City of Heroes made super-heroes come to life. I loved City of Heroes almost as much as I loved the expansion - City of Villains. I am not the only one; to this day CoH has a strong, loyal fan-base after several years. I have found that, though from time to time I left to pursue other games, I would come back to try out all the new toys that some new update had given us. At release City of Heroes was a long way from being the game that it is now. It took years to let it evolve and grow with the needs of the gamers. Cryptic treated us well. The biggest development along the way was surely the introduction of City of Villains. CoV appeals to the darker side of the super-hero fan with its sinister plots and lawless city. Yes, you will find police, but you will defeat them in battle right after you have taken care of the guys they were trying to arrest. Yet City of Villains added more than a new setting to show off your super-powers - it gave the do-gooders some quality evil to crusade against.
