I'm not impressed with the new male body type in the same way I would not be impressed with a female body type based on Pamela Anderson.

It's ugly. It's fake. It looks like a steroid addict.

I really like it, actually. Maybe it's just personal preference, but I like that muscular look on man. More importantly, I like that the devs were smart enough to make this change now as opposed to later when it would affect deadlines.

Take a look at this image.

And this one.

And this one.
Image

This is what comic readers see as heroes. CoH did not use these models because they did not have the tech, or they would have. As long as the look does not inhibit the animations, I am all for them.

And speaking of the female side, here is one of my favorite characters in ANY comic side, way overdone.

Image

What is overdone is the almost impossible build Captain Marvel has in this pic. Besides the overly large bosom on a slender person, her waist is too thin for someone with that level of build, and no one with an abdomen that was that well defined would have skinny arms like that - they would be very muscular because of the weight work it takes to get that kind of six pack.

See my comments in the announcement thread. I'm kinda with GreyHawk on this one. While yes, I do understand a little bit of wish-fulfilment and unreality is necessary in a superhero game, it's a bit ridiculous.

I really like how the devs can explain some of the musculature by imagining how 25th century heroes would take care of themselves physically - why wouldn't they strive to reach their peak physical performance? Large muscles are a result of their incredible fitness training. Also, can you imagine the exercise equipment tech of the 25th century? Even though that hero gif is lifting dumbbells, we can imagine the most efficient, precise, effective exercise machines.

I admire the devs' design choices!

And of course the typical CoT trolls are there trying to make comparisons; as if CoT even rates the same as SoH LOL!

What if I want to make "Booze Hound"? he needs a beer belly, not a six-pack. :D

Sometimes it is hard to hold back. We're going to have some billboards of the future advertising a new kind of beer, and Booze Hound would want it...

I'm not going to say any more. Except it is funny...

Oh, boy! Now you have my attention! :)
