With the launch of CITY OF HEROES FREEDOM, we started a new series of monthly episodic content called the Signature Stories. The first of these is a 7-parter called "Who Will Die?" and as the title suggests, the story will culminate with the death of one of the game's most recognizable heroes. That'd be one of the following:
--Back Alley Brawler
And this isn't just a quick throw-away death either; the hero will be meticulously removed from the game following Who Will Die. Fans on the forums have guessed all sorts of endings for the storyline, and I suspect they'll be pretty surprised at how it goes down.
In the actual image, we see charred, busted-up versions of Statesman's helm, Manticore's bow, and Back Alley Brawler's gauntlet.
