My Personal Superhero

As long as I’ve known Coolidge, Batman has always been his favourite superhero. Even when I featured the character as part of my Super Sunday series, he seemed to like my rendition of the superhero I grew up with.

Back in vanilla, there was a particular incident in LBRS (you know, the bit at the start when you jump down onto the ramp to avoid killing some mobs), I was eating dinner while trying to play so I used one finger to jump down but happened to fall through the hole where the ramp is. I yelled SHIT as I ended up falling out of the instance and into the group of orcs below. At the time I wasn’t sure where I was as the others told me to just come back to where they were but the problem was, I wasn’t sure exactly where that was to know where to go from there.

Being the good hunter that I was, I feigned… little did I realise Huga (Cool’s resto druid) had jumped down after me and started healing me. I was so surprised by what he did, it took me a second to react… you see, I was still feigned on the ground while poor Huga was getting all the healing aggro. So I put my fork down, re-summoned my pet and then promptly killed them all, with Huga keeping us up. It was such a sweet gesture and something I still remember after seven years.

I also know in real life he would do the same if I were in trouble so I really wanted to design my own version of Cool as the hero that he loves. Keep in mind that I’ve incorporated some of his features – which is pretty much how his human paladin looked once upon a time.



I tried a lot of variations with his set (not all can be seen here) but the top image was actually pieced together from four different armour shots.

Happy Valentine’s Day to my own personal superhero.

  3. I was about to say “that’s so sweet” but noticed everybody else did. Love the Batman transmog! I always thought the mail helm from Maly 25 looked like a Batman hat :D

  4. Finally got a chance to read this and thank you very much Cym, you know I love you. The amount of times I know you think I am being mad or mean when you hear me yelling to run or something but in my mind I am on my pally holding down some PvE adds or in PvP where I would stunlock/slowdown anything coming our way just to keep you up and running. If anyone knew my rl leadership training exercises and coordination of others to get things done that is just how I am, BUT I can’t help to want to protect my Cym from harm. As long as she stays my gal. ^.^

    • Thx everyone. His first response was more like “he looks goofy” so I was spot on!
