I've played CoH/V for quite some time, convincing my brother to help me purchase City of Heroes after a preview for the (then) upcoming game piqued my interest. Even on an old computer with dialup, the game grabbed me...especially the power combinations, character builds, and costume creator. When CoV launched, I cleared it all, starting afresh on my own account and new computer. Yes, I was excited to play villains. I've been making characters in the game ever since, filling all possible character/costume slots I can. (Within certain servers, I have to have limits.) I love creating in this game, playing with friends, hunting badges, tweaking costumes, trying new power combos, tweaking costumes, planning character builds, tweaking costumes, writing backstories, tweaking costumes...you get the idea.
