Champions Online offers a guide to playing as Grond

This, uh, didn't work out great.

Some people are just set up to be superhumans. Take Champions Online‘s Grond – the guy was injected with an experimental serum, got more random chemicals poured into him, dove into a heavily polluted river, and got struck by lightning all in a few moments. Some force of nature clearly wanted him to be more than a human being. The fact that he turned out to be a supervillain rather than a superhero is almost irrelevant, especially since players can stomp around with him with the game’s upcoming Onslaught system.

As you could probably guess from the fact that he’s a huge guy with four arms and horns, Grond isn’t the subtle type, building up Fury as he takes damage, then unleashing it for maximum damage. He does get pretty tired afterwards, so it’s a matter of managing his rages and unleashing them for the greatest impact. There’s nothing in the guide about mutated monster-men needing a nap after a good smashing, but it’s definitely implied.

Damonvile Theo454 schlag sweetleaf Those Sinbad movies were something else. sed to watch those all the time. Had them on VHS. My favorite was the one with the genie. Probably Seventh Voyage of Sinbad…
Just looked up some stuff about those movies on IMDB. I almost want to stop and watch them now for old time’s sake. That and Jason and the Argonauts, which apparently owes it’s skeleton fight scene to one of the Sinbad movies. That Harryhousen…

schlag sweetleaf Theo454  I did not mean the first four armed creature ever invented, just meant Grond was created before mortal kombat came out.

haha.. zero conversation about this “feature”?  perhaps its not that popular.  Anyhow, back to talking about marvel and mortalkombat.. THOSE are franchises I’d like to see made into a MMORPG with custom player created avatars

Theo454 schlag sweetleaf This is just stupid trivia but the creators of Goro actually said they got their idea for a 4 armed warrior while watching a sinbad movie. ( probably the golden voyage which is a great movie if you like old claymation btw :) )

Who knows maybe grond owes his origins to the same classic.

schlag sweetleaf  Is that from mortal kombat? If so, Champions PnP game(which Champions MMO is based on) was created in 1981. Therefore, Grond was first.

Ceder Too bad they pulled out.  Would’ve been nice to play a Marvel MMO.  Marvel Heroes is okay but honestly I’m not a huge fan of Diablo grinds.

For those that may not have known, when Marvel settled their lawsuit with Cryptic over City of Heroes folks being able to make likenesses of Marvel superheroes, part of the settlement was to make Marvel Universe Online mmo. When Marvel pulled the plug due to the lack of development and Microsoft pulled support as well, all the assets were converted then developed into Champions Online.

Thus the assets that now are Grond were originally designed to be the Hulk.
