Otherwise the game could not have a Teen rating, because then it would be possible for it to depict violence against children. This same reason has been used to explain why female toons cannot have a smaller bust size.
Well Champions Online is a Cryptic game and it has different options in that area and there all characters can be made huge / small. Here there are limitations on how short a human can be and so on. So why they blame it on ESRB I can not understand, as it has approved the other game.
