Champions Online is the new superhero MMO hailing from the developer behind City of Heroes, andhere'sthree new screenshots from the title.

Cryptic Studios is keeping the comic book feel with its art direction for the game, as you can see.

For all the nerds out there - like yours truly - Champions Online is based on the Champions pen and paper RPG, which features a clever and highly flexible points-based character creation system.

"Champions Online delivers furious, fast-paced encounters previously reserved for action and fighting games. No more boring auto attacks and lengthy recharge times. Champions Online combat is instantaneous - and electrifying!", Cryptic has said of its game. It's due out next year.
