Well, I wouldn't want to see CoH return per se, but I'd dearly love to see a new, and better, superhero MMO show up!
From your lips to God's ear, Cutter. I liked CoH, but it was an on again-off again thing. Champions Online kinda went to pot once Perfect World got hold of it. Sure, there's something deeply satisfying about looking down on a city from a perch on a skyscraper, but there has to be more to it.
If I'm going to be a superhero, let me feel like a goddamn superhero. If I'm going to be a harsh vigilante with a big arsenal and a short fuse, let me play that out. If I'm going to be a mutated freak with skin problems and weird biochemistry that makes me faster and stronger than regular humans, let me exult in that. If I'm going to be a dapper gent in a cloak with a library full of arcane spellbooks, make me believe it. Give me a personal storyline, not just a bunch of random single panels. Make my choices have consequences. Let there be "back issues" where others can see what happened, where I succeeded, where I failed. Give me friends. Give me enemies. But first, foremost, and always, make me believe that I am the hero that the city/world/galaxy/multiverse needs.
