I think Babbage was more interesting. Kraken was just a slightly larger Man o' War for me.

Babbage had a better back story, powers and cooler all round.  Kraken just keeps running away when in a fight.

Babbage for me.  I have fond memories of calling out for help on the Babbage ambush in Synapse and seeing a zone full of heroes converge. 

Sigh...

Babbage was cooler.

Well, I dunno' most people's first reaction to a Stalker is to run away :P
Nah but I agree, as adorably derpy as Kraken looked, Babbage was way more interesting in terms of his concept

There was nothing quite like flying overhead and seeing Babbage spawn, then every hero in the zone descending up on it. So yeah, Babbage.

I did enjoy the Kraken fight.. I seem to remember a parallel mission in Cim facing a Lusca-like creature.. Plus, seeing the shadow of Lusca as you swam by was a bit spooky!  :o

Babbage... I only ever fought him once or twice, it wasn't bad, he had a good backstory, but I only ever dared go near when someone would cry out for help ;)

Babbage wins!
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?
