Metal Control

Would be unique to put in a Magneto metal controlling power set. But take it a step further, a sadistic Magneto metal control power set. So it's not just throwing cars and steel beams around it's creating torture devices from metal and stringing up enemies into them. Definitely a villain's power set. I can already imagine a power called "Iron Maiden" throw a villain into a car then stab it with steel rebars into it

No to both magneto powers and the sadistic version. COT will not be another version of GTA.

I have to agree with cyclops

I have to agree with cyclops here I doubt they are going to animate a sadistic animation set as the prop animations and bits are seperate from the "powers" the powersets aren't say fire or metal but focused lines that we can drop props on.

I doubt they would ever come

I doubt they would ever come up with a powerset that would be "locked in" to being villainous/heroic oriented anyway. Even back when CoH existed the Devs of that game did their best to open up all the existing archetypes so that there were no longer "red only" or "blue only" powersets.

Remember aesthetic decoupling in CoT will allow anyone to make their powersets look/behave any way the game will allow. I doubt any of them will be overtly sadistic or overtly "carebear" in nature. Besides anything unquestionably sadistic would likely threaten the game's "T for Teen" rating and something literally called "metal control" would likely be too obvious a rip on Marvel's Magneto so that would be questionable to have in CoT on legal IP grounds.

Well I mean... I'm sure their

Well I mean... I'm sure their going to let people have metal bending animations but... those specific ones? Where you make torture chambers out of steel? Nah... best you're gonna get is a steel beam wrapping around you target... it's still a T for teen game.

If a metal control type set

If a metal control type set were possible, one of the powers would have to be named "Symphony of Destruction".

All of the sound effects

All of the sound effects would be electric guitar chords.

A few moments in there have a distinctly klezmer sound and I love it. Not a lot, but just some musical phrases.

For reference look up "Oy to the World". Enjoy.

Or for you slightly off

Or for you slightly off-kilter types, perhaps you prefer your metal with a decided Hayseed Dixie twist?

That emote was awesome
