Champions Online takes many of the ideas of the tabletop game and reshapes it to fit the needs of a massively multiplayer online game.

"There's still quite a lot to be learned about Champions Online, but it appears Cryptic Studios is on the right track. Champions Online ships in spring 2009 on PC and Xbox 360.

The same company responsible, for marvel online, city of heroes, and the expansion city of villians though they sold the latter two to NCsoft. They are making a pc, 360 MMO? Yeagh, im sold I will pay to play this. I am desperate to try a full MMO game not a demo which I have experienced. Also, I just read the article on this game it will support cross platform play. Pc and 360 on day one of launch.
