- Wheelman is the fourth official character I've made for Champions Online, and also the first character with a Freeform build.
- The main inspiration for creating the Wheelman was drawn from my City of Heroes character, the Malleable Mechanic, in an attempt to reinvent the character idea for the new setting. Inspirations from mainstream comics include the Flash (and other speedsters) as well as the Rhino (for the unremovable suit concept).
- Also, a big part of the concept was the use of the Hyper Ball travel power: in fact, I waited to make him until I had actually bought the power from the Questionite Exchange.
- The character is the first to reach maximum level in Champions Online, sharing this honor with the Mechanic in CoH.
"It's nice to see that boy scouts still exist. Wheelman is not only capable he is caring. I think that says a lot about him." - Sparrowhawk
"He puts his misfortune to good use. It's the right move. The only move. He has my respect." Captain Adamant
I've said this numerous times before, I'll say it again. I always liked how Wheelman's simplistic style makes him look so easy and somewhat iconic in the first sight. Very memorable and minimalist. Also the original idea behind the character is one of the best I've ever seen. I don't often write great feedback on characters, but I had to write this one down. --Cartun (talk) 06:35, 16 July 2013 (BST)
This is the equivalent of a "Like" of Cartun's post, because I can say nothing more, and agree 100%. I'll add that the page itself has that old, Virtueverse wiki feel. The writing is tight and cogent, it's got flavor, and the page has just enough bells and whistles. --CalamityCain (talk) 15:29, 11 April 2015 (UTC)
