DC Universe Online is surprisingly fun. I wouldn't pay the subscription fee for the "premium" perks but I've been enjoying it. I admit I do spend a lot of time just checking out other peoples character designs. Champions online had better customizing but DCU has an armor/style system I like and the fact I have my own hideout is pretty sweet. I built my character for crowd control and DPS because I assumed I'd spend a lot of time playing solo but I tend to get invited into groups on a regular basis, I'm guessing because my ability to lay waste to multiple foes quickly and easily gets attention. If anyone here plays let me know.
I love DCUO, but my all time favorite would be City of Heroes.
But I went and spent 10 bucks for the Lantern power set, didn't regret it one bit.
Also went for the blasters equipment.
