Yeah, I'm with you on that one Gryphon. I like the idea that the villains have their own epics but having them be slaves to the "IT" group of villains for the game is kind of wonky.

One of the guys in my SG/VG on Virtue is hoping that they'll let the villain epics switch sides and let a Crab Spider fight Rikti in Steel Canyon-he thinks that would be cool.

Either way, it's a pretty damn cool toon you've got there, Gryphon!
