You mean that staring at someone's assets was not part of the game?
I AM SHOCKED!

Oh god, it was so obvious when people would stare at me... *wave head* XDDD

-Random hero 1 is running then suddently stop moving and turn around to get a better view!  :P

Personally, it wasn't offending me one bit and I was good fun, I'd flirt a bit ...just to embarass them!  ;) XDD

Is there a flirt emote?
I didn't know that.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

I didn't know that.

I don't think there was one, I just knew a few poses that looked like I was flirting and I'd say the things to go with it... ;) XDDDD

Thanks for your input, we really closed the loop on capes.

The desicision was that capes are a good thing and are required of every hero.
(there are always exceptions)

The correct answer to the question is

This is beautiful.
 It's absolutely beautiful.
 Well, uh...
 we seem to have everything...
 but, you know...
 it's not much different...
 from a fallout shelter.
 No, Calvin.
 This is different.
 Believe me.
 This is great...

name that movie.
Cogito, Ergo... eh?

Blast from the past?  Only thing I can think of with a fallout shelter and the character (Walken) named Calvin.
Patiently lurking from the shadows...

Kind of off topic (at this point in the thread at least  ;D) But capes have historically been used as weapons. They'd weight the corners and use them to attack their opponents legs and throw them off balance so I could see non powered heroes putting that to great use. Plus in most superhero settings there is all sorts of weird shit, lazer capes. Lazer capes could exist. How cool would a lazer cape be? Or a magic cape? They ain't gonna' be shoving you into a jet turbine. Their Lazer. Or magic.

I'm beginning to think that maybe capes aren't right for everybody.

As my character, Tiger White put the other day, "I wear a cape to stop creepos staring at my butt."

I love capes, but with the exception of matadors, medieval lords/ladies, and Zorro, they are a bit silly.

Speaking of Zorro, he's going to bring capes back to men's fashion: http://www.details.com/blogs/daily-details/2015/09/antonio-banderas-fashion-school-central-saint-martins.html

So I think we decided that every character MUST have a cape?
