Goodbye, Paragon... by DynamoDiva Goodbye, Paragon... by DynamoDiva
Commissioned Artwork by :iconbattlewraith: *Battlewraith

With the shutdown of City of Heroes, I'm moving on, to Second Life, and to whatever other games or venues appear fun and attractive.

Also, with the shutdown of CoH, I am hereby declaring ST as my own original character, although I doubt I'll actually do anything with her because of the elephant in the room ("Soul Train" being a trademarked icon of Don Cornelius Enterprises). NCSoft can suck it.

I love your character! She might need to take down my OC Purple Vixen down a few notches!

Maybe you could call her Soul Trane ... like a real name, a descendant of John Colrtrane? Maybe? lol

Interesting!

And... that might be a fun team-up, indeed. :D

I have an idea actually, that would involve Purple Vixen, Soul Train AND Spider Vixen! What does :jason74012: think?

Soul Train is still a hot looking Heroine in my book.

Time to give ST a new name, maybe Chocolyte. But, to tell the truth, Soul Train fits her best. It's what we know her by. Something will come through.

Well what would be really cool is if DCE sent me a note saying, hey we love the character, here's how she can coexist with OUR Soul Train. :)

If she can do disco, maybe they'll cut a deal! :lol:

I played COH waaay back in Beta and played for like 4 years. I tried going back now and then but never stuck again, but I know what you mean...feels odd knowing it will not be there any longer. And I really love your picture.

I think the "elephant" might not be really big. Think about this, Marvel/Paramount/Disney released "Marvel's The Avengers" also known as "Avengers Assemble" in the UK to avoid conflict with a television/ film trademark over the title "The Avengers" from a British spy-fi British television series created in the 1960s.

Hasbro lost the rights to use of the name Jazz from TransFormers after the toyline went under in the early 90's by not renewing some kind of trademark linsce over the character's name. While TransFormers was in limbo another toy came along that trademarked the name Jazz. So did this stop Hasbro from using Jazz again? Nope his character's toy was just renamed "Autobot Jazz" for the time being to avoid conflict.

And don't get me started on Captain Marvel....

You know.. that might be worth looking into. Thanks.

And you know... ST's always available to co-star with your stuff, if you want... :)

THANKS!

:wow: Spider Vixen and Soul Train together on the same page! That would be amazing! :wow:

(Oh course Spider Vixen would love to meet Soul Train. SV's a huge fan and will no doubt shyly ask for an autograph and maybe photo of them together.)

Well, if you're ever around Champions or even DCUO, who knows? You've got a comrade in arms to say hello to. I've been pondering SL. I dunno.

Goodbye Paragon. You will live on in our hearts and memories forever.

Sl is... a bigger money sink than CoH ever was. Warn you about THAT right now.

Plus it has things in it that makes the Pocket D look TAME in comparison.

That said... I'm finding that it's got a lot of really wonderful people, the fashion industry in it is amazing, and no matter what you think of, someone's probably already created a sim for it, so you can do or be nearly anything.
