If you, like us, are a bit more like Clark Kent than Superman, then you can rejoice at the our latest competition to celebrate the release of City of Heroes – Issue 9: Breakthrough, which also includes City of Villains, the evil side to this MMORPRG.

The game, developed by NCSoft, allows gamers to assume superhero or super-villain identities which they design themselves. Super-powered evildoers can then pit themselves against their kitten-saving nemesis' and vice versa.

Breakthrough is the new expansion pack for the massive MMORPG and includes features such as a new invention system and auction houses, as well as some high level PvE quests and a end-game encounter with the Hamidon super-villain which will require all new tactics to defeat.

All in all, a rather substantial upgrade to what is already one of the best MMORPG's on the market and, luckily for you, we've teamed up with developers NCSoft to offer a string of super prizes to give away to help celebrate its release and five readers will be able to bag themselves some decent swag by answering a quick question for us.


One lucky first place winner can lay claim to a goody bag which includes a copy of the game, a t-shirt, signed photos, posters, two character statues and much, much more. Four lucky runner-ups can also bag themselves a copy of the game and a Hero Statesman figurine.

To be in with a chance of winning, there's only one thing you need to do and that's tell us the answer to this question in no more than 50 words:

If you could have a super-power, what would it be and what would you use it for?

Draft up your answers and explanations and send them to competition@bit-tech.net before 11:59 AM BST on Thursday 28th June 2007. Winners will be announced on Monday 2nd July, 2007.

Until then, why not trade ideas in the forums of what your superhero or supervillain might be like?
