Not every successor is an MMO

I mean that we're starting to see the influence from CoH in games beyond our little circle here.

Are they the most like CoH?

I'd heard they used alot of placeholder art that was ripped from CoH, but none of that was going to be in the final release.

I'm not aware of any successors using any art (placeholder or otherwise) from CoH. I follow VO, CoT and SoH. I can't speak to H&V.

The truth is that all of these projects have set ambitious goals. Only time will tell if any are capable of achieving those goals with their small development teams and minimal resources.

I agree with Nate's sentiment, it's more likely that another game outside of the MMORPG genre will fill the Superhero void in the market. The Avengers Project for example. Hell, Agents of Mayhem looks pretty heroic (and awesome!)

This is true and I really had doubts when they were first announced, especially when it came out that instead of unifying around a single project multiple teams were each trying to make one, but some have shown impressive progress.

MMOs function in their own market apart from other games, besides any game that isn't an MMO can't really be a spiritual successor as it will either lack the character creation aspect or the social aspect and I think pretty much everyone agrees that those were the spirit of CoH.

You forgot its almost fanatical devotion to the Pope.
