That’s my character in DC Universe Online. She looks that way because I tailored her to look that way. Nice and normal and unassuming. But don’t be fooled. She’s decked out in fancy gear. Being in the endgame, I’m even grinding for specific bits of gear, which seem to come at the rate of about one piece every week or so if I log in to play a few instances every day or so.
