Marvel Universe Online "No Customized Characters, Ever"Big thanks to Xero_Chance for posting this link. The folks over at MMOFallout have an article about a recent quote; "Players will play iconic Marvel characters, just as they do in [Super Hero Squad Online]. In fact, the game will feature more Marvel characters than any Marvel game to date. We won’t be merely “sidekicks.”" This is troubling news indeed for fans of customization. Check out the article and let us know what you think.

There is something to be said about MMOs. Specifically, MMOs have always been about creating a character (occasionally one that looks like you), and setting him loose in a world to run through their story. The more casual among us might use this character creator to push out an aesthetically pleasing avatar with generous amounts of cleavage, while the more hardcore role players may spend hours customizing every last detail down to the width, depth, and length of their character’s cheekbones, and bless them for it. Key factor is, I play my character to have his part in the overall story. In WoW, you are just another peon in the ongoing war between the Alliance and Horde. In games like Aion and Rift, your character has a bit more prominence than the simple grunts on the battlefield. In DC Universe, your character gains his powers via exobytes from Lex Luthor.

In Marvel Universe, however, players will be relegated to controlling iconic Marvel super heroes, including Spiderman, Wolverine, etc.

Head over to MMOFallout to read their reaction to the quote.
