Hope Mr Tiki looks like this

Hope Mr Tiki looks like this in the first image. Good read, had to say it out loud in the radio announcer voice because the cheese was too great.

I always wondered where Mysterio got that fish bowl. How he got to Titan City Is anyone's guess

I accidently ate a bowl of radioactive soup....ok I guess that makes me a Soup-er Hero

Interesting for use as a contact. I like him, though I'm in the camp that his style is a bit outdated.

I guess I'm just more used to modern hero designs. but, then, that fits the point in time where he was a working hero, doesn't it? :P

An infinite number of tries doesn't mean that any one of those tries will succeed. I could flip an infinite number of pennies an infinite number of times and, barring genuine randomness, they will never come up "Waffles".

Looking forward to hanging out in the Orbit Room!

Also looking forward to logging in onto CapeChaser.

Can Captain Orbit reach orbit? If so, what's his payload?

I'm sure that I'm not the only one who's getting the sense that the Orbit Room is meant to have a similar function to another hangout that was run by a certain DJ Zero.

I bet the view from the Orbit Room will be awesome!

I suspect that this will depend on the size of your party and how many martinis you ordered.

While I wouldn't want the overall tone of City of Titans to be tongue-in-cheek the way it is in Champions Online, a little camp is part of comics and I thought this was well done and enjoyed it!

It is restrained, tasteful camp, intended to inject a certain homage to an earlier era without taking the game overall in the wrong direction, and to inject a bit of old fashioned playfulness in the same way.

I like it.
Although, I was momentarily confused when I accidentally read his name as Captain "Obit".

I thought it was a perfectly balanced homage.

I also chuckled with the Capechaser forum comments.

Will Captain Orbit's "space energy" be an available power design aesthetic/theme? Will there be a reputation we can work on (or lose) with iconic NPCs like Captain Orbit?


I like to take your ideas and supersize them. This isn't criticism, it is flattery. I come with nothing but good will and a spirit of team-building. If you take what I write any other way, that is probably just because I wasn't very clear.

According to the half-megabuck stretch goal, we will have "Auras no true comic book game could be without - Kirby Krackle! in all its infinite glory." Since they referred to this after mentioning auras, I don't think they mean the band. Though that would be cool, too... While not a programmer, I would think weaponizing the Krackle would be relatively simple.

Captain Orbit rocks. He is

Captain Orbit rocks. He is totally going to be Empyrean's mentor. Somewhat similar origins.

Empyrean was a former-fighter-pilot-turned-astronaut who got his solar powers from an "incident" (details vary depending on the "universe" he's conceptualized in) during NASA's first manned Solar mission. Plus a later continuum-appropriate solar magic upgrade at some point. He's a "solar-system" (but not Galactic or Cosmic) level hero.

And he will be a Bastion (come on post-launch Specifications!!!)

SO... READY... FOR... THIS... G A M E ! ! !

FIGHT EVIL! (or go cause trouble so the Heroes have something to do.)

Nice. I like that CoT is acknowledging the "past eras" of comic books in-universe. The costume is definitely Silver-Age. Can't wait to see what the view will be like in the bar!

Zzorgg sez, "I am not as think as you drunk I am."

Apropos Zzorgg, did anyone else get the impression that he is Captain Orbit's Marvin, albeit probably more upbeat and less paranoid?

I *love* Captain Orbit. Much respect for the retro scifi hero and his super cool sidekick. I am so very very in the "traditional heroes looking to him as an example" camp. :)
I hope an admin can hop on as Captain Orbit some day just so I can fist-bump and roleplay with him about hero stuff!

It is a curious fact, and one to which no-one knows quite how much importance to attach, that something like 85 percent of all known worlds in the Galaxy, be they primitive or highly advanced, have invented a drink called jynnan tonyx, or gee-N'N-T'N-ix, or jinond-o-nicks, or any one of a thousand variations on this phonetic theme.

The drinks themselves are not the same, and vary between the Sivolvian "chinanto/mnigs" which is ordinary water served just above room temperature, and the Gagrakackan "tzjin-anthony-ks" which kills cows at a hundred paces; and in fact the only one common factor between all of them, beyond the fact that their names sound the same, is that they were all invented and named before the worlds concerned made contact with any other worlds.
