So, much like many others who have taken their characters away from Paragon City and into their own 'verse, I've decided to do the same. For a long time I've been trying to figure out where my heroes would be based out of and what the place would be called, but today on the radio I realized I already had a good one. Rocket City is the nickname for Huntsville Alabama, which is close to where I live right now. There's a high number of technical and military businesses out here so even though the town itself doesn't have huge skyscrapers or anything, it's still a hub of scientific activity and will serve nicely as a base. So I'm claiming Rocket City for my character stomping grounds!

Oh yeah, I guess this means I'm writing again. So maybe I'll find time to put something together to post or start editing past posts in between studying for school, unpacking the house, taking care of the kids, and working a part time job.

I know I have a ton of characters and only a few watchers who even know City of Heroes, sooo... is there anyone you'd like to know more about? Any characters I should write about first? I'm open to suggestions.

****EDIT****FAIR WARNING****

I just looked through my character references and realized I have not uploaded my final character reference screenshots from before CoH was shut down. So I'm going to be uploading those tomorrow. I apologize ahead of time for the spam. There are 106 characters, including actually played characters with bios, joke characters, half of a duo characters, "hey I've got an idea for x" characters and "hey I've got a great name" characters.

Yep, all my fault :D

Hahaha. That's alright.

It's funny, I didn't realize quite how many characters I'd had until I went to get screenshots of them all. Not as many as you, mind, but still... I had a few. I got pics, screenshots of their bios, even used Fraps to get movies for 360 degree views of their costumes (for the main ones, anyway).

I couldn't get some of my bios because the characters were locked, sadly :( I had some good ones, too!
LittleCorax's avatar
Yeah, I think i had a couple of those.. thankfully, between the name and look, I should be able to remember most of them if I need to.

That's okay, I love the show. I've only seen what Netflix has though. All the references crack me up. The first time I saw a nod to Benny Hill's Yakety Sax I about lost it. And also there's this: [link] which pretty much owns everything.

I had a hunch Pinkie Pie would be your favorite. She's completely random. My daughter loves the show. Her favorite is Rainbow Dash, who's kind of nutty herself. ;)

It's funny because Pinkie is the exact opposite of me. Maybe I wish I could be more like her :D
