''Lee, a comic book legend who founded DC Comics' WildStorm Productions, is lending his skills as an artist, gamer and creative director -- he was the first player on his EverQuest (EQ) server to get the Paladin epic sword -- to bring iconic DC Comics characters like Batman and Superman to life in a way that's never been seen before in a video game. For the first time, DCUO will let players create their own customized super hero or villain and wield amazing powers in the name of good or evil as they write their own chapter in the fabled DC Universe.
Supporting the game's distinctive, dynamic look is a physics-based combat system that makes traditional role-based massively multiplayer online games a thing of the past. With DCUO, players will have virtual powers that feel truly epic in scope from the get-go. Fly around, grab a bus, and toss it at your foes. Shoot energy blasts from your power ring as you dash with incredible speed along the side of a skyscraper. Or turn rivals into ice cubes and then lob them from atop the Daily Planet building!''
