Issue 16, "Power Spectrum", to be shown off at Comic-Con.

We have great news coming from the team at Paragon Studios today. They have announced their next major content update, Issue 16: Power Spectrum, which will allow players to customize their powers! It also involves a really nice update to their award-winning and genre-defining character creator, as well as more powerset proliferation options. Powers customization is the longest requested feature that players have wanted and they are going to get it this fall!
