Cryptic Studios' president Michael Lewis can't make a deal with Mephisto to go back in time and erase the ill-fated "let's make an MMO, Marvel!" episode from his company's history. Chief creative officer Jack Emmert cannot declare a crisis on infinite servers and ret-con whatever mistakes he may have made designing City of Heroes. Human beings don't need kryptonite to crash -- but if superhero comics have taught us anything, it's that they have the extraordinary ability to learn, adapt, and change. It makes some omnipotent extradimensional aliens so jealous they want to eat our planet.
