So DC universe online has gone free to play, and after a very bad launch, they seem to be fixing things and while the servers are still randomly crashing it appears one can finally play a bit.
With the game being free to play (restrictions on number of character slots, currency, bank slots, mail system and some others, but other than that pretty much all the content of the main game) I figure it´s time to start a new, Modern Age thread for the game including names of heroes/villains (which I can update in the OP) and pictures of your characters (because dressing up dolls is half the fun).

This is the golden age thread : bonus fun with all the “I love it” and “awesome” till page 39 and then “is there anyone still playing this” on page 40. Plus Donna Troy discussion!
Ftp can´t create a league, so here´s hoping some of the JSoQt3 old dudes can create or reactivate one, in the PVP side of things.

NOTE that the servers are still wonky, I´ve decided to be patient, after all we get what we pay for :)
NOTE on ganking for those worried about it: I found very little of it in my first foray, fwiw. My lvl4 was surprised by a lvl7 hero and got her ass kicked, and all that means is I returned to my starting point.
NOTE on PVP and PVE: you can swap between them!
NOTE on crossplatform play: there is none. Buuuuu.

Jab2565: Also a quick FYI, for those wondering what the various attributes do, you can view them by clicking on Stats in the inventory menu then clicking on the name to see what it affects. Turns out precision is important for doing basic attack damage.
