The Villainous compliment to City of Heroes, also a Massively Multiplayer Online Role-Playing Game (MMORPG), where players create villainous characters and spread crime as they see fit. Characters are divided by origin and archetype.

Origins: Magic, Mutant, Natural, Science, Technology

Archetypes: Corruptor, Dominator, Brute, Stalker, Mastermind

Corruptor: Primarily ranged offense with secondary defense, buff and/or healing

Dominator: Primarily control powers with secondary offensive powers

Mastermind: Primarily summons henchmen, secondary defense, buff and/or healing

Stalker: Primarily melee combat with secondary personal defensive powers, has stealth ability

Brute: Primarily melee combat with secondary personal defensive powers, more hitpoints than a stalker but cannot stealth

City of Villains also expanded the PvP (Player vs Player) aspect of City of Heroes, which started with no PvP. "The Arenas" were introduced to test PvP, and City of Villains was the actual implication of PvP. PvP is not required, however, and in either game one can stay in their own "hero" or "villain" zones and not encounter other fightable players.

Coventry is a city and metropolitan borough, in the West Midlands of England. With a population of 303,475 at the 2001 Census (306,000 est. 2007), Coventry is the eighth largest city in England and the eleventh largest in the United Kingdom.1 It is also the second largest city after Birmingham in the English Midlands by population. Coventry is situated 95 miles (153 km) northwest of London and 19 miles (30 km) east of Birmingham, and is notable for being further from the coast than any other British city.

Coventry is famous for its modern Cathedral, which was built following the World War II bombing of the old cathedral by the Luftwaffe. Coventry has since developed an international reputation as Europe's major city of peace and reconciliation, centred around its Cathedral, and holds an annual Peace Month. 1. Coventry is also notable because Coventry motor companies have contributed significantly to the British motor industry, and also because it has two universities, the city centre-based Coventry University and the University of Warwick on the southern outskirts. Coventry is also famous for the legendary 11th century exploits of Lady Godiva.

Residents and those born in the city are called "Coventrians" (or in the vernacular locally "Cov Kids").
