OK, we know a lot of you are going to judge us for this, and, yes, it does bear a striking resemblance to City of Heroes (another heroic MMORPG from Cryptic) but we really, really want to play Champions Online. And this new trailer and screens from the game's official site are doing nothing but increasing our urge to tie a towel around our necks and start the revolution.

This preview from IGN has some interesting details too, including the fact that you'll be able to design your personal arch-nemesis, in addition to your hero. The wait until the slated spring of 09 release seems so long that we're tempted to start playing the tabletop version of the game. ... No, no, we kid of course. We'd wear a towel cape before we'd fall that far into the nerdiness rabbit hole.
