Capone prided himself as a man with style. If he ever killed someone himself, or one of his henchmen killed an important person, hundreds of dollars worth of flowers was sent to the funeral. In one fight between Capone’s men and another gang, an innocent woman was shot, not fatally, and required hospital treatment. Capone personally paid for all the hospital fees. He also would pay for all children’s hospital bills when he visited.
it’s a case of “yeah, he was evil, but he wasn’t a totally bad guy”
How do you handle a hero like Rogue, whose ability allows her to siphon powers from any other character? MMO Marvel Heroes has come up with an elegant solution — give her all the powers.
"Rogue has traditionally gotten the short end of the stick in Marvel video games. She’ll get her flight and super strength, but rarely has she gotten a chance to use her powers to their full extent.
Now available for purchase and play in the free-to-play online action role-playing game, Marvel Heroes’ Rogue gets the flight and super strength she originally stole from Ms. Marvel, plus 90 additional to steal from heroes and villains in the game, 12 of which she can have active at any given time. “
Such an addiction
Today’s gaming adventure—a Marvel Heroes match-up 20+ years in the waiting. When my wife and I first met way back in the day, it was on the then-equivalent of an internet forum about comics. I took Gambit’s name as a handle; she took Rogue’s. Now, with Rogue’s release in Marvel Heroes yesterday, we finally get the opportunity to play together as our old namesakes. Firestar and She-Hulk are our team-up characters tagging along for the fun of it.
