    Name ideas of City of Heros

    I just picked up City of Heros, and made what I think is an awesome character. He was a scientist who mastered quantum phyics and such, and controls gravity. My first instinct was to name him "The Black Hole," but that was already taken.

    Now I'm thinking about "Dark Matter." But I figured I'd ask around for other names that allude to gravity and such before I put it in stone.

    Any ideas?

    Graviton? Q-Bert? Gravitas, Gravis.

    How varied is the character design for that game? Could I be a superhero called The Marshmallow Maniac, with the power of flinging sugary sponge-like confections at evil-doers? Might I also wear a baker's apron and a propeller beanie whilst smiting the baddies with tooth decay?

    Prelude, its pretty diverse. You'd have to see it for yourself. You can pretty much make anything.

    God bless the Ramones!

    I ended up with "The Black Graviton." A buddy of mine wnated to start a group where everybody has a color in the name, he's the ionic green, somebody else is gonna be ice blue or something like that.

    I don't think you'd be able to have that exact name prelude, just because it's sorta long. Might fit though, I'll check and see later on. I wish I had talked to hammer before I made my character, he could have done my design =)

    What, you think those pics of her you've seen are for real? Everyone knows the serious coders sit in front of their computers 24/7, eating mountains of pizza. Er, I mean marshmallow.

    Damn, I just realised I forgot to add the hair

    >>he could have done my design
    My artistic skills come at a high price, just look at the quality of my work.
