There's no shortage of spectacle at Comic-Con, where every nook and cranny is crammed with superheroes, robots, aliens, and even the occasional robot alien superhero. But few spectacles draw as big a crowd as a photo opportunity with Batman and Wonder Woman outside of the DC Universe Online booth. The booth is mobbed. Kids and adults, men and women, hardcore and casual fans -- everyone wants their picture taken.
The appeal of these iconic characters is at the heart of DC Universe Online, the action-based MMO for PC and PS3 that Sony Online Entertainment is cooking up. The game was playable for the first time at Comic-Con, and GameSpy was on hand with Creative Director Chris Cao to talk about how he and his team are hard at work to bring the DC comics to life.
