This series is based on some of the shows and movies I grew up with so they don’t necessarily resemble the most recent interpretation of the superhero or villain that you know today. A combination of armour types have been used for most of my costumes so they are not strict transmog sets but rather what I have been able to obtain in-game. Other items include quest rewards as well as class-specific or common items.
Quite often, a single item will inspire me to feature a new character like Wonder Woman’s tiara, Batman’s belt, or Zatanna’s top hat.
