DC Universe Online players willing to shell out $9.99/1,000 Station Cash a pop can now suit up as two of the DCU's arguably most iconic armored characters. Legends versions of the heroic John Henry Irons a.k.a. Steel and the villainous Lex Luthor are both now available for purchase through DCUO's Marketplace to use in PvP mode. According to DCUO Systems Designer Jesse Scott, Lex will fight primarily through hand blasts care of Quantum Barrage and Laser Beam devices built into his trademark green and purple battlesuit. He'll also utilize an "Energy Matrix or a localized AoE named EMP" on hand for close encounters and a LexCorp Surface Strike capability that'll barrage foes with rockets. Steel, on the other metal hand, will wield his signature hammer and use it for multiple attacks that feature names like "Hammer Drop," "Atom Splitter," and the electrified "Hammerang" move. There doesn't appear to be an option to play as Shaq Steel, though, which is a complete and utter bummer.
