I'm not surprised that Hercules won the vote. Looking forward to a great cosmic champ.
I was doing my best to campaign for Omega Sentinel and I still personally think she would have made (or will still make?) a great addition to the game, but I'm also happy for the Herc fans. He has potential to be a great champ, but I'm also seeing a lot of people say how surprised they are that he won the vote. Think about it...many of us who are on the forums or look at characters from the perspective of being a viable contender examine all of the pros and cons, the class needs of the games, the potential kits, etc. But think about it....how many people voting on the survey are just average folks who see a choice between Hercules (that many, many people are familiar with) or Omega Sentinel (who your average person has no idea about). I can easily see a ton of Herc's votes coming from sources other than hardcore gamers. I hope he's a great champ who is right up there with Hype, Corvus, Cosmic GR, and Sparkles.
