it's really hard for MMO's to have high end graphics....so if that's what you're after then mmo's aren't for you
I agree with you to an extent. I mean I hate to sound like another DCUO fanboy (though I do play the game) but it has great graphics for an MMO on both the PC and PS3 versions. I mean we have computers that come with stock graphics cards that put those of a PS2 or original XBox to shame so I don't think it's too much to ask for higher standards in graphics even for an MMO.
And to those ascribing to the notion that it's somehow "better" to only be able to play as your favorite hero or villian as oppose to one you thought of yourself, you really must have no imagination. As much as I like all of the Marvel characters set to appear in this game I'd much prefer to play as a character "inspired by" them fighting along side them with other original characters in that same vien than a dozen Wolverines, or Caps or Iron Man's etc. All the variant costumes in the Marvel Universe will never match the uniqueness you feel when playing as character whom you've named and dressed to your own specifications.
