You can find the characters and costumes as random loot drops in-game, or you can just pay to unlock them

@primedirective: i want to believe that and it would be super cool if it was true. but i doubt it.

This is a glorified X-Men Legends / Marvel: Ultimate Alliance. They should have just copied DC Universe Online and made improvements. Instead, we get a million Spider-Men running around. Lame. I'll stick w/ DCUO for sure.

poor marvel. They just cant get their games right

@sethysquare: Marvel vs. Capcom is pretty great...but that's more of a credit to Capcom and the Street Fighter combat engine than Marvel. I've been playing DCUO since launch, as well as Injustice (tho launch was 2 weeks ago so not exactly a huge amount of time), and I must say these games are amazingly fun and addicting. Not to mention the Arkham games, which are two of the best games released in the last decade. All-in-all, I think DC does a MUCH better job w/ their video games than Marvel, even tho I think Marvel has a lot more room to work with, given how many more popular characters they have than DC.

I read an article that said "for those of you worried about 1000 spider-men and wolverines running around don't worry" Did they ever announce how they prevented this

Edited by kid Apollo

i said it ewhen i first heard about this game and ill say it again. they should have duplicated DC online so that you can play along side heroes, not play as them. i cant wait to play with 7 Spidermans, 5 Thors and a dozen Hulks!

Don't doubt it, and it is super cool, because it is true... I'm in the beta, so I know what I'm talking about.

Sure does look nice! I might try it sometime.
