Super Booster III: Superscience contains science themed costume pieces, emotes, and costume change emotes, as well as the Super Tailor feature that allows full tailoring customization. This purchase enables these features for all characters on the game account.

As of City of Heroes Freedom/Issue 21, this booster pack is no longer available. The costume pieces, emotes, costume change emotes, and super tailor feature are now only available through the Paragon Market.


City of Heroes Super Booster III: Superscience gives you all the tools you need to show those fools at the Institute why they should have listened to you! Super Booster III: Superscience grants your character an eccentric new costume set, electrifying emotes to express yourself or change character costumes, and access to a new Super Tailor called the Cosmetic Surgeon. Combine these for the ultimate mad scientist transformations between genders and body types! This purchase enables these features for all characters on your game account from level 1, but the costume change emotes do require that you unlock at least one additional costume slot.

Players who purchased the Architect Edition box set get a free code good for either Super Booster I: Cyborg or Super Booster II: Magic only. Super Booster III: Superscience, Super Booster IV: Martial Arts, and Super Booster V: Mutant are not available.

Costume Pieces

The Superscience themed male, female and huge costume parts include jackets, sleeves, gloves and boots, as well as several new goggles and masks, neck bolts, and more. Additionally, male and huge characters get mad scientist hair!

Sneak Peak

Badge time.png This section contains information about a past event in City of Heroes Freedom. It is provided for historical purposes.

In an April 28, 2009, interview at[1], Positron said that the third booster's theme would be "superscience".

The next Super Booster is "Superscience" so players can look forward to crazy lab experiments and even cooler costume-change possibilities than we've ever offered before.

Also on April 28, 2009, Positron gave several clues to possible inclusions/exclusions during the anniversary event (partial chatlog):

04-28-2009 18:39:22 [Local] Golden Girl1: Positron, which is the next booster pack scheduled for release?
04-28-2009 18:39:36 [Local] Positron: Superscience
04-28-2009 18:40:08 [Local] Positron: and Dr. Jekyll-costume change emotes
04-28-2009 18:40:34 [Local] Zortel: Speaking of Dr. Jekyll, any chance of costume changes involving height change, or even from Male to Huge and such?
04-28-2009 18:40:50 [Local] Positron: Hmm Zor... that is an... interesting... idea...
04-28-2009 18:25:35 [Local] Brutax: Positron, it's possible to give us more monster cossie like shark face, wolf tails, tentacle arm...
04-28-2009 18:25:50 [Local] Positron: Sounds like a Mutant booster, Brutax
