It all depends on which side of the equation you want to look at it from. If you're a hero, its a city of villains waiting for justice to be brought to them. If you're a hero, its a city of Batman --and other heroes-- to watch out for. Its still just one city, and as a game I think City of Heroes 2 fits better while maintaining name association that people can look at and say, "They've been around for more than 8 years!"

And World of Heroes is a great name, but I can see people complaining about how "OMG they just copied WoW!" Not that big of a problem, just drama that could be avoided.
Too true. I think City of Heroes 2 is just fine as a name. Just because the game is focused on one city doesn't mean that game play has to be limited to there only... the whole world (and beyond,
maybe a lunar zone finally?) should have super hero/villain battles to be fought. The City of Heroes is just everybody's favorite staging area... kind of like how even though there are other prominent locations in Marvel Comics, New York City seems to be where most super people are drawn to.
