Yesterday, ComicsAlliance's hands-on preview of "DC Universe Online" showed the game's character creation feature, but what about the story behind the powers and game options? Does choosing a look inspired by the Joker mean being just another clown-themed villain, or will in-game appearances run more than pixel-deep? To answer these questions, ComicsAlliance's Alan Kistler spoke with Jim Lee, Co-Publisher of DC Comics and DCU Online's Executive Creative Director, and Game Director Chris Cao about the role of characters and teams like the Green Lantern Corps, the Teen Titans, Brainiac, and Ambush Bug in the upcoming MMORPG set in the DC Universe.
ComicsAlliance: Now this game focuses on a possible future where Brainiac screws us all over and so older Luthor comes back to the present day to
Despite being delayed from this November to early 2011, Sony's "DC Universe Online" MMORPG is trucking along with promotional teasers showcasing the ins-and-outs of its virtual world and the battles yet to be waged (by non Beta testers) within.

Although it's a popular joke among film buffs and other various species of fandom, very few film trailers are memorable enough to truly necessitate their own DVD-style commentary tracks. The classic "The Dark Knight" trailer and those created by Pixar certainly spring to mind, but any forthcoming trailer-centric features will have to catch up to the remarkable presentation put together by DC Comics Co-Publisher Jim Lee and Blur Studio's Tim Miller for the "Who Do You Trust?" trailer, which was released this this week in support of "DC Universe Online."In what So
Sure, the game won't hit shelves until November 2, but DC heads are already in a full-on tizzy over "DC Universe Online," so what could possibly get them even more jazzed at the upcoming MMORPG? Friggin' monkeys, of course!
The good folks at Sony Online Entertainment recently released a new batch of screens from the game where we finally get a chance to see such simian supervillians like Grodd and his banana-munchin' minions, and -- oh, and look at that! -- its not only the bad primates getting in on the action; is that good King Solovar also making an appearance (only his duking it out with the Flash -- mind control, mayhaps?).Far be it f
When it comes to digital comics on Sony's PSP, publishers have moved beyond an experimentation phase and into a reality where mobile gaming devices are a full-fledged (although still young) component of their respective businesses.
