I always messed up my names...
my 1st character was a controller and named Necromancer, but was an Ice/Empathy (not Dark). :/

I had a blaster names Lightning Bolt, who was an Energy/Energy. I always had people ask why didn't my toon have Electricity. I was thinking of re-rolling, but Energy was so fun, i never got around to it. :(

And let me guess- when you made a fire/fire scrapper, you called him "Ice Shield."

Doctor Megaton... because the name "Megaton" was taken on Virtue. He was a Rad/Rad Defender damage specced. What people later called "Offenders"--and back when you could six-slot for damage and get your recharge an accuracy from other powers. It worked quite well. Still a decent healer in a pinch, too.

I met Virtue's Megaton one time during a busy day at the Talos tram, and I asked him the question in Local Chat: "Hey! Do you know WHY my name is DOCTOR Megaton?"

To which he replied "No."

"BECAUSE I COULDN'T #*@&%$&@T#G@#(%& GET MEGATON, THAT'S WHY!!!"

Which he took in the right spirit and there were LOL's all around.

First character? Why it was the precursor to the great one himself! A Dark/Dark Corrupter (STILL my favorite AT) named Morticun who wore full chitin armor and would massacre the snakes on the Rogue Islands. Then I saw the Energy set and was like "HOLY SHIT!" and rerolled to Energy/Dark .. and before long, THE NIGHTMARE WAS BORN

Now I have to tell on my son. He was 8 years old and his very first Character was... Big Bad Cat! A HUGE grey... cat-man? with an equally huge broad sword. And I think some kind of crown or something, if I remember right.

I was so proud.

That...Has to be the greatest thing I ever heard...Kids imaginations are so pure and awesome. No need to justify a cat-person wielding a broadsword. We need more comics like that (Axe Cop is the only one that comes to mind)

Thanks! Yeah, my two mains

Thanks! Yeah, my two mains were a "man-become-near-god" Starlin-style cosmic guy, and a "guy who became a big strong monster" a la Kirbys Thing. Those are two of my favorite type of classic hero themes.

My son and I played together for almost 8 years, and I raised him on a steady diet of trade re-issues of classic stuff like the Phoenix Saga, Moore's Swamp Thing, Kirbys FF and New Gods, etc.

My wife (who started playing much later) and son ask me about once a week how this game is coming along. CoH really left a hole. We tried Champs and DCUO and even Secret World (which is an awesome game in it's own way), but nothing did it.

Everything I hear about CoT makes me feel like this will be it. So excited.

You sir are the greatest dad! That's a healthy comic book diet for a young mind. I was very lucky to have read Kirby's and Stan's early stuff due to the masterpiece reprints when I was youngin, must have been the bright colors or the dramatic style text but I felt like nothing ever came close to that kind of magic. Dr Doom's first appearance and the Avengers 1st issue still holds up for me as great stories.

You gonna introduce him to grant morrison in his teen years?

I'll give you all a hint.

I'll give you all a hint. Here is the text from the pages of the back-up feature in which that character first appeared (before getting her own comic book, which was drawn by the legendary Simon Kirby):

Democracy Comics #27 wrote:

"In the endless reaches of the universe, there once existed a planet known as Kyton; a planet that burned like a glowing green marble in the distant heavens. There, civilization was far advanced, and it brought forth a race of supercats, whose mental and physical powers were developed to the absolute peak of feline perfection. But there came a day when a cosmic calamity threatened to destroy Kyton forever. One of the planet's leading scientists, sensing the approach of doom, placed her infant daughter into an experimental audio-vibratory physio-molecular transport device, capable of sending matter across both time and space, and set it in the direction of the Earth, just as Kyton was no more. The K-Wave sped through star-studded space, materializing safely on Earth with its precious burden: Kyton's sole survivor. A passing motorist found the uninjured kitten and took her home. As the months went by and the kitten grew to maturity, she found herself possessed of amazing physical powers. Faster than a speeding tram, more powerful than a sludge monster's body odor, able to leap tall fences in a single bound, the infant of Kyton is now the Imp of Impervium: AMERIKATT!"

[Run your cursor between "Impervium" and the exclamation mark if you *absolutely* need a spoiler!]

I remember making a Earth/earth tank as my first char I only really got to play him for like an hour on my dads account, I'm kind-of surprised I remember him. However the first character I made after starting to play proper was a Storm/electric Defender with a name Im too embarrassed to say. Both those characters had such terrible names.

My first was a fire/fire blaster with that crazy "metal" outfit if you recall. Got to 7, had 3-slotted hover for speed (20 was sooooooooo far away). Name was Firenza IIRC.

Son made a tank, huge and purple, named "The Wreckoning", points for clever.

My first character was

My first character was Amethystine, invul/mace tanker, created early July 2004, level 8 at shutdown, unplayed for thousands of days. Back in the early days we didn't have the numbers without doing some serious forum diving, so given the choice between a toggle to protect me v S/L or a passive , I chose the one that didn't cause me to run out of endurance, and wondered why I kept dying.

My first serious characters, Ms. Blizzard ice/storm troller, TheoPWildebeest nrg/nrg blaster and Mr Minotaur stone/axe tank were created soon after and all hit 50 in Jan 05.

My first was my former

My first was my former namesake, Blackjak. He was a ninja/ninja stalker (IIRC) to try to fit a Spider-man like melee powerset. He's still my user name on Titan and was my CoX board username as well. His costume was very inspired by Union jack costume wise with a black Union Jack (close as I could get with straps) on blue outfit.
You can probably guess from the spelling that Blackjack (with a C) was already (no surprise) taken. I had no idea what the different servers were like at the time so I chose Champion because I liked the name. I later moved on to almost all the servers with at least one character, but found an RP home on Virtue, but he stayed on Champion with a couple of other toons til the end.

What a coincidence, my very first hero was also a MA/Regen Scrapper! I played him all the way to 50, but he sat unplayed for years thereafter. I eventually rerolled him as a MA/SR Stalker, and I couldn't have been happier with him after that.

I had quite a few "main" heroes, but my most memorable was probably my BS/WP Scrapper. He was a flying Scrapper. There was nothing like swooping into combat on the glorious wings of an otherworldly angel, sword in hand, to deliver steel-edged justice.

He wasn't my first 50, but I did finally make it.
Painful in the early game, he was a blast (pun intended) at higher levels when I made him into a sapper/blapper.

The very first character I

The very first character I made was on my housemate's account - a spines/regen(?) scrapper. I had never played an MMO before, but I was hooked on this right from the start. He kicked me off his computer and I made an Empathy/Energy Defender - Mr Mighty, on my own account.

Which is how I discovered my graphics card was a piece of junk. Housemate kept telling me how bad my costume looked. I thought it was awesome... until I saw it on his monitor. He was right, it was an eyesore.

It's interesting (to me) that the first character I created was a scrapper, and I loved the game, but I never got any melee character past level 30. Well not a 'proper' melee character.

American Dreamgirl,

American Dreamgirl, (originally "ADG", since "American Dreamgirl" was too long at launch)
she believed she as an unacknowledged (bastard) grandchild of Marcus Cole... had a heated rivalry with Lady Liberty, and was driven to prove she was worthy of Statesman's attention.

She was the Leader of the pre-launch team "The Patriettes"... that didn't really survive launch.

she was a tank, and I never enjoyed playing her...

after COV launched, I made her a Brute, tweaked her origin a little (bitter at being ignored by Statesman, she joined up with his arch nemesis, and wanting to beat Libby to a bloody pulp )
I LOVED her as a brute, and have every intention of making something like her in Titans

I think my first toon and my first 50 was a Dualblade/Regen scrapper named Tiger Kai. He started out in a black and grey tiger-striped ninja outfit. He gradually changed to orange and black as he became a more established (higher level) hero.

Mayan Warbird was my first SS/Inv tank. Scion of an old mexican family who is granted his magical powers while studying on the Yucatan peninsula.

Captain Combustion came soon after as a straight up Fire/Fire blaster. Result of a terrible research accident caused by the skulls breaking into his lab. Tragic really.

My habit in the early days was to build very conventional AT's and learn how to play them before I got into the more esoteric builds.

I was so proud.

Well with a name like that, I'd expect he'd be a catman! :)

I made a broadsword character as my first, although the rest of the story is kind of opposite. I'd been making characters for several years already when City of Heroes came out (like a lot of players), but I wanted something original and new for City of Heroes. (Like a lot of players, I'm sure.)

When I dug into the amazing character creator, I noticed immediately that you could make all kinds of heroes influenced by the fantasy era MMO's. So I decided to make a character that felt like a classic rogue, but a character with a super hero appeal to him. I figured I would start by making a bridge from the fantasy era MMO to this new pool of super hero MMO's which is what City of Heroes felt like to me, even then.

I ended up going with a broadsword/ super reflexes scapper named Sebastian Dash, a natural themed hero. (Magic in beta, but revised in live.) Natural themed, basic human. (I hadn't realized Sebastian was such a common name for cats. :) )

I chose it because it struck me as a name that'd be suitable for an old school fantasy RPG but still fit the modern era.

Dash was partly to sound heroic, and partly because it was one of the 5 pre order prestige sprint powers (Although not the pre order power I got. I got swift, but decided Dash sounded better. Plus I didn't want to be too obvious.)

I'll probably do the same with the new game, go through and try to come up with the most fitting first concept for the new game that I can come up with. Later on, I'll probably go through and re-imagine some of my other heroes, probably with new names, for the new game as well.

It sounds like it is going to be a load of fun!

My first toon was a Broadsword/Regeneration Scrapper named Astemus. At the time, BS/Regen was considered awesome, but I just wasn't an awesome enough player to make it work. Eventually, I deleted him to make room for another - this was before extra character slots on a server were available.

My Second was a Fire/Fire Tanker named Flamelocke and I still had him at closure.

My Third was Black Valkyrie, a D4. Art forum visitors may be familiar with her.

Hmm, maybe I should put up the last iteration of Flamelocke there...

Be Well!

My first character was Omega Girl, energy/energy blaster and to this day still the one I look back on most fondly. My first villain was Wicked Rose, plant and thorn dominator and my homage to Poison Ivy who is one of my favorite comic book villains. I so miss all my CoH/V friends and am hoping they will come back when CoT rises from the ashes.

My first was an AR something blaster and boy did I suck at playing him, so he wasn't very memorable, obviously. He was deleted before he hit 12 I think. I don't know who I made after that...

Mine was a FF/Rad Defender

Mine was a FF/Rad Defender named Crickitt. Have no idea why I picked that combo. In fact, I had no idea what I was doing overall.

Mine was an Elec / Elec

Mine was / is an Elec / Elec Blaster - still my main today! Fusion Reacta

Her costume started off with neon blue rubber jumpsuit with the big yellow lightning bolts all over, big hair, normal skin and the massive science visor and ended up like in my forum Avatar :)

She went though many incarnations and builds, I spent a long time spec locked as I'd used all of the ones I could earn so I re-rolled her with the exact same spec just to get more respec unlocks! (Thank god for veteran rewards later on! :D )

Her final version - once side switching was implemented she ended up Elec / Elec / NRG a L/S def capped blapper that was almost unstoppable :D I found myself playing her almost exclusively even though I had 20 other alts rotting away :s

Fun times :)

I remeber Fusi and Minotaur

I remeber Fusi and Minotaur as well!

Anxiously awaiting the return of EUROCORE!

My first was Quantum G, a grav/bubbler, the only char I took to 50 and likely to be my first CoT char. Although I also had a robot ninja named Der Stuttgarter (he had escaped from the Daimler/Benz factory if I remember correctly.)

Big smiles.

i really need a sig and an avatar

My first was a Claws/SR

My first was a Claws/SR scrapper named GRETA-001 and known by her friends as Greta. GRETA stood for Genetically Resequenced and Engineered for Tactical Assault. She will almost certainly be reborn in some form in CoT.

This is her final build, never fully achieved before sunset, soft capped, passive regen 32 hp/sec and over 2100 health there was pretty much nothing she wouldn't dive headfirst into. Had nearly as much fun creating her (and my other characters) numerous builds in Mids' as I did playing her for around 3500 hours.

I'd probably miss it ... if I actually stopped :p I stroll down memory lane now and then by dinkering with character builds. Sometimes by visiting old characters, sometimes creating one that will only ever see the light of day if one of the efforts to bring back CoX succeed.

Electric/Electric Blaster

Electric/Electric Blaster named BluePulse. Possibly my least-favorite character I ever got to 50, and he always felt squishy and weak, even at 50+3. (Even though I made him first, he was one of the last characters I ever got to 50, only a couple of days before shutdown) He was loosely based on one of my FFRP characters, but he really should have been a Scrapper to better match both the personality and survivability of the FFRP character in question.

My second-ever character was a Bots/Storm Mastermind named Dr. Bodog, based loosely on Dr. Sivana from Captain "Shazam" Marvel comics. My favorite Mastermind, despite making several others. I can't remember whether he was my second or third character to make it to 50.

My third character was an Electric/Invulnerability Brute named Thunder Glove, based even more loosely on Black Adam from those same comics. (He was going to be straight-up SS/Inv, but then I saw Robot Arm 3, and decided to make him a cyborg who channeled electricity through his metal fists. The "Glove" part of his name was inspired by the Bionic Six villain Glove) He was my first to 50, and remained one of my favorite characters until the game closed (hence, the forum name).
