DC Online Universe: "An Innocent Comment"
Posted: Monday October 11th, 2010 by

I was reminded of DC Online Universe because of a trailer and screenshots coming out of the New York Comic Con this weekend. So I hit up the DCO website to refresh my memory about the game. In looking through the screenshots it felt like all I was seeing were DC specific folks and wondered how SOE could make an MMO where everyone got to play super heroes from a large but finite universe of characters. I clicked over to the overview section and found "Players will create their own custom DC-style hero or villain, each with a unique look and combination of superpowers" listed as a feature. That makes sense. I went back through the screenshots and found what had to be homegrown heroes. **shrugs** I'll admit to being a bit distracted at the time.

Anywho, you all know by now my belief that any time you give gamers the chance to make their own custom characters there are going to be a lot of attempts to make a walking penis. Thus enter Captain Winky. And innocent comments become saucy little quips.

The eagle eyed amongst you might recognize Captain Winky's costume from the ModNation Racers comic earlier this year.[more info] The costume's reuse made a certain amount of sense to me.

My apologies for doing two super hero penis jokes in a row. It wasn't intentional.
Any of you planning to play DCO when it releases early next year?


Now, I enjoy drawing super heroes and thus far have never gotten a commission to draw one. If you would like to change that, I've got the Artist For Sale! information up again. If you would like to put me to work I'd appreciate it.
