Shaenon: Jessie Tracer writes:

Yesterday, a disturbing throught occurred to me as I tinkered in the Champions Online MMORPG character creator. It turns out that with a little effort, careful choices of costume parts and colours, and total lack of shame, It's possible to create a passable Tip Wilkin! See the attached screenshots for a standing and an action pose. (Sorry for the darkness of them; that's just how the game is, they they look worse with any kind of correction. Also, the gun handles are supposed to be pearl, not the barrel, but I goofed.)

Nice outfit. Nice badass stance. Thanks, Jessie!

Channing: Awesome. Tip looks ready to beat and/or shoot the crap out of some cartoon bad guys, which -- I assume -- is just what is about to happen. It's amazing what you crazy kids and your MMORPG character creators can do nowadays.

Just played with the character creator,
I made a Wilkin look-alike!
He likes the way this outfit feels ...
(Though he'd prefer stiletto heels!)

The danger is great, but Tip is greater!
Look at those guns, he's poised to strike!
He's an impressive sight to see
In that M.M.O.R.P.G.!

   'Cause we know that Tip's a superhero!
   We know he'll be there when duty calls!
   He looks like a girly girl, but we know
   Under that skirt, he's got some balls!

I started to write different words to it, but realized there was no point. They're already perfect.

I can't wait until Tip meets Felicia Day.

Johnn Reynolds (sleepyjohn) says:

With the yellow splash at the bottom, I thought the first one was a screen of the box for the new Tip Action Figure (by Mattel), and I was hoping that the UNITY action figure would come with real detachable parts!

E.A. Poe (theraven) says:

Iwould absolutely buy a Unity action figure. And Moustachio too!

E.A. Poe (theraven) says:

And very nice work too Jessie!

Jessie Tracer (electrickeet) says: I'm glad you all enjoyed. *grin*
Nate Cull (natecull) says:

"Action" figure might be stretching it a bit for Moustachio...



Norman Thallheimer (norman) says:

Jessie, we will be watching for your Tip in Millenium City and other areas.  If you need more heroes to make a Skin Horse superteam, let us know!

The only way to top Jessie's effort would be to make Sweetheart, but I'm not sure the CO character creator is up to that challenge... [begins plotting] 

Dave Van Domelen (dvandom) says: The main challenge to making Tip on City of Heroes would be the hair. The robes that come with the Martial Arts booster would do nicely for a dress, but you don't get to cross-tress.
