Title: lookalikes
Post by: UnfluffyBunny on September 11, 2009, 12:31:56 AM
i've seen ALOT of lookalikes ingame, so I thought we might have a thread to muse on ones we've seen ingame, or post some we've made for ourselves.
here's a few really obvious ones (note these were just made in the designer for fun, not use in game)

Ha, glad you started this UB, I was thinking about doing it myself!  I've seen some great ones already, mostly Hulk and the like, but I've also seen a surprisingly number of Optimus Primes, believe it or not.  There were a few movie versions, but also one rather excellent G1 version.  I was actually impressed.  I don't really know WHY you'd want to play a superhero game as a 6 ft. Optimus that can't transform, but at least it isn't as goofy as the 50 Hulk's running around.  I'm going to have to get quicker with my screenshot finger so I can document some of these guys for posterity. 

By the way, that is an awesome Skeletor.  I almost don't mind people who do such obscure things like that.

Here's my Wolverine lookalike.  I saw a near perfect Flash, and a few great Phoenix/Jean Greys.
I actually wouldn't mind joining an X-men supergroup for poos and giggles.

I saw a dead-on Rogue (green and yellow cosutme with brown jacket) but couldn't get a screen capture.

I caught just a glimpse of a pretty good Superman yesterday, but he was up, up, and away before I could snap a picture.  Nice Wolverine, DM.  I'm surprised they don't have a better mask for him.

I finally managed to catch a few on "film":

Hellboy, looking a little short:

And your average Batman:

I've only been playing a few days, and I've only seen three look-alikes, but I didn't take pics: Two Hulks (one of which was too light a shade of green, a bit too skinny and packing guns!) and a Batman (colored blue and gray but with the no oval bat logo)

Saw someone who did a bad attempt at a Superman, but it was so badly done I don't consider it a look-alike. (Only realized what he was supposed to be due to the name and color scheme; didn't even have a cape)

Post by: UnkoMan on September 15, 2009, 06:49:33 AM
I've seen a ton of Batmen, a few Hulks and one Superman. Quite a few Dragon Ball characters.

I also saw one Tombstone, the same day I had made a Tombstone and was playing with Benton for a while. It had the colours of the promo art (grey/purple) and a skull and crossbones on the cape, but there it was.

I've seen the Hulk several times during close and open beta, and now since the game has launched.  All three times the toons name has been spelled Hullk.  I wonder if it's the same guy?

Saw a Spawn (actually named Spawn) yesterday, and I think I saw an Iron Man also (was definitely someone with red and gold armor, but they moved off before I could see their name or get a good look at them).

Since I made my last post in this thread, I've seen about three more Spawns (and I think the one C6 posted may be one of them), a definite Iron Man, two Green Lanterns (Hal Jordan version), a couple of Snake-Eyes, a Deadpool colored black instead of red (trust me; it was a wrong-colored Deadpool, not another Snake-Eyes), The Shadow, someone I *think* may have been a badly done Solid Snake, and a Nightcrawler.

Very surprised I haven't seen any more Hulks or any Dragonball Z characters at all.

I've seen that Magneto!
And, surprisingly, a different Dick Tracy. I also saw a Martian Manhunter that looked real odd with no straps.

I really like that Hulk.

I was in a PVP match with a Sub Zero, but instead of ice powers he was a gadgeteer for some reason.

PS: I also just ran into Dracula.

Post by: detourne_me on October 07, 2009, 02:58:13 AM
One guy i was playing with said he saw an Ace and Gary!
I saw that Dick Tracy last night too,  codename Richard Tracy.
A Thor, named Thor that looked a little odd. oh and Grey Hulk, which kinda sucked.

Post by: style on October 14, 2009, 09:58:19 PM
Man in that pick with the Dick Tracy look alike I see a couple of more look alikes. Like The Undertaker, Silent Snake,and that shorty from Star Wars

Yep, we noticed the Undertaker. :)

Is that the spawn from when we teamed a week ago?

It looks like there is a Storm lookalike in the hulk pic too.

There's a hero I know whose player is a wrestling fan and he has Bret Hart and Jim `The Anvil' Neidhart costumes as alternate outfits. He also has another costume that looks like Jesse Ventura with a traffic cone on his head, but I don't know if that's intentional or not. He's never outright said its supposed to be Jesse Ventura, but people have commented on it.

I made a hero named Thing That Should Not Be (wouldn't let me put `The' at the front of it), and his human disguise is Hulk Hogan.

I don't know if it would get generic'd, but I'm tempted to make a hero who is a cross between Papa Smurf and pro wrestler `Big Poppa Pump' Scott Steiner. Too bad you can't make a goatee with a different colored stripe down the middle of it.
