I think a good discussion to kickoff this shiny new forum would be what we'd like to see developed in terms of interaction and synergy between the HERO Games Paper and Pencil RPG and the Cryptic MMO.
The obvious things are more of the Champions IP/backstory showing up in game, and the guidance on how to build your CO MMO character in the HERO system rules. I know those are already on the table and being worked on, Steve Long has already said that the 6th ed of the Champions supplement for the HERO System will have a chapter devoted specifically to building powers that match those available in the MMO.
So lets talk about what else we'd like to see?
1. I'd like to an integration of some sort between the CO Character Creator and the HERO systems Hero Designer software so that I can use CO to create the character picture and import it into Hero Designer. Then I'd like to be able to print out a map figure sized character portrait (maybe front and back so you can just fold it and put it in a base?) to use on the tabletop map.
2. Maybe a way to keep a continuing storyline going for a character? Sort of a Character blog, so you can have more than just an origin for your character, more of journal. Maybe integrated with the log system?
3. Maybe have products that are co-marketed for both CO and Hero games? I.E. A new supplement comes out for HERO system AND CO you can buy it separately for either, or get a cost break for buying BOTH the PnP version AND the MMO version. This might help pull in more PnP players into the MMO and vice versa?
3a. Have Cryptic work with HERO games to publish the "Adventure Packs" that Jack mentioned come out as a Hero System by-monthly supplement kind of like the old Adventurers Club publication.
