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.

Over the years, he’s come to my rescue numerous times but there’s one incident that stands out after all this time. One night, a group of us were starting LBRS so I used one finger to jump down onto that first ramp below (while eating dinner). Unfortunately, I misjudged the angle and ended up falling through the hole just before the ramp. I yelled SHIT as I continued to fall – not knowing where I’d end up – and fell into a group of orcs below.


Being a good hunter, I feigned… hoping the group would come down after me. Sadly, they didn’t so I opened my map to try and see where I was. Little did I realise Huga (Cool’s resto druid) had jumped down after me and started healing me. I was so surprised, it took me a second to react. You see, I was still playing dead 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 while Huga kept us up. It was such a sweet gesture and something I still remember after seven years.

I know he would do the same if I were in trouble in RL 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.

Here’s an updated version using the new model.


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!
