Marvel Heroes MMO coming soon!

Been waiting for the Marvel Heroes MMO game ever since I heard about it...and it's coming out in the next few months!

Developed by one of the original geniuses behind Diablo 1 & 2, this game bears plenty of similarities with those. For me it reminds me a lot of the X-Men Legends and Marvel Ultimate Alliance games. But it's gonna be much bigger since this is a MMO.

I have never played a MMO before so quite excited to see how this turns out. Game is completely free-to-play but if you want to unlock costumes and heroes from the start, you can purchase them at different prices for various amounts of content. At the moment, there are some exclusive content only if you purchase the Ultimate Pack at US$200. Hefty price but pretty worth it especially with the permanent 5% Bonus XP and item find. You even get your name into the game's credits! Pretty Cool!

Still deciding which hero I should play if I get the Ultimate Pack. 
Black Panther is pretty cool and I have always liked his look, despite him not being one of the more popular heroes. Good thing is that I won't be seeing too many Black Panthers running around the world. But if I pay US$200 and not play one of the more exclusive characters, it might make me feel it wasn't worth it. 

Deadpool in his pirate costume would be a better choice. His pirate costume is one of the enhanced costumes where it has enhanced effect, voiceovers etc. Would definitely make game-play more entertaining, definitely more so with Deadpool.

Of course, there is Thor, Hawk-Eye, Hulk among many others.. So, anyone else looking to get the game?
