Arkham City dev: a Superman, Captain Marvel or Green Lantern game would be "fun"

OXM UK: Man of Steel's true character "hasn't been explored yet", opines Rocksteady writer. (Batman: Arkham City, PS3, Xbox 360)

Keep dreaming Rocksteady, Titus Software already made the perfect Superman game.

Superman 64 rocks the socks off Batman Arkham City.

Yep. Between that and X-men: Destiny, Batman doesn't have a chance.

i think rocksteady should be the developers of every superhero game
every superhero game sega gets its hands on ends up a disaster

lol wow, it's a joke people calm down. Seeing as Superman 64 is regarded as one of the worst video games ever, I doubt he's being serious.

bah Aquaman on gamecube blows all those games out the water*pun intended.
WhiteLightning  +   1208d ago
No No No.....

Come on Rocksteady give us a decent Spiderman game

From marvel my vote is in for a good violent and dark Punisher title or even a well done Blade or Daredevil game.

From DC I would like to see someone do a Wonder Woman game where she doesn't look like a bony supermodel. The version that appeared in the DC Universe online was spot on.

But above all of those I would really like to see someone do a proper third person game with RPG mechanics based on the Martin Caiden book Cyborg.

The world knows the main character under another name:


There are so many possibilities for a gritty dark game in that world.

morganfell i like the idea of gritty punisher game good idea the last good punisher game i played was on the ps2 anyone remember that one?

Has anyone else seen the gliding gameplay for Arkham City? All I could think was "ok, they can DEFINITELY do Superman right..."
Sharingan_no_Kakashi  +   1207d ago
Superman needs to be redeemed.
pixelsword  +   1207d ago
The only good superman game would be when he dies, because there's no realistic struggle in any other area in his existence.
maniacmayhem  +   1207d ago
A Captain Marvel game would be interesting. Having to go between a little boy and a Hercules like hero fighting the monster society would be awesome.

Then again we need a decent Superman. Life demands at least one decent Superman game this gen. The EA game tried and was on the right train but on the wrong track.

Yeah i want a Captain Marvel game sick of the superman, spiderman, batman remakes.

Superman games are tough. For one, he's virtually indestructible and avails of seemingly limitless power. Toning these abilities down would seem cheap to fans.

The map would have to be vast in order for his super speed and flight to be in any way useful. As in even bigger than Just Cause 2.

There's also the whole problem with the character's perfection being difficult for a normal human being to relate to. It's hard to truly "feel" for Superman or to evoke the possibility of failure on his part.

It's a tough job, but if anyone has a shot it's Rocksteady. Though seriously, I doubt it can work. It's like trying to make a Dragonball Z game: on paper it sounds like a perfect fit, but actually executing it in a fun way seems to be perplexing.

I agree, it would be weird to see superman die to a bullet.

hes a really 1 dimension character, I'm a good guy and I'm perfect. with no real creative freedom for rocksteady to work with. Everyone knows superman has these sets of skills and thats it nothing else.

Batman is really the easiest hero to make a game for, it just so happens rocksteady made the good one.

Play or rent EA's Superman game. They actually did a nice job with the superman abilities and health, not to mention the GTA style of gameplay. Plus Metropolis was huge and superman could go super fast from one end to the other.

By the way there are many things that can hurt Superman, of course normal things like fire or bullets cant but there are a good number of things that can. That is what so great about superman and what writers cant seem to understand. To make superman work you need larger than life villains and predicaments. All Star Superman is a perfect example of a good superman story.

And the current Dragon Ball Z games are loads of fun and are done extremely well.

I think that someone should make a super hero game on a super hero that is not as popular Like superman,spiderman,batman. there must be TONs of other characters who have good story lines.
RioKing  +   1207d ago
any suggestions on who?
matt1991  +   1206d ago
No. Im not into comics or super heros other then the popular ones but i would like to see something different and be introduced to new hero's/villains i have not been aware of.

Ill use transformers as an example.. i never really liked the cartoon so i never really watched it but when Michael Bay made the movies i fell in love with the transformers franchise.
e-p-ayeaH  +   1207d ago
Nah just do a Batman Beyond (Batman of the future)game.
shinobi602  +   1207d ago
The possibilities....a Superman game made by Rocksteady?


Sh00terMcGavin  +   1207d ago
Idk, metropolis is too bright for me. Gotham is just perfect.
RioKing  +   1207d ago
Lol at your name.

And idk, if they did a day & night cycle for Metropolis...I think that could have some amazing potential.
Getowned  +   1207d ago
No they need to make a evil dead game!

lol so far i really like what rocksteady has done and they have my support for Batman day1! i say keep the batman games comeing i would drool over a batman game based off of frank millers "The Dark Knight Returns" and superman would be in it :P

SPOILER ALERT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

you would get to kick supermans ass!!.

Batman saying to superman "We could have changed the world…now…look at us…I've become a political liability…and…you…you're a joke. I want you to remember, Clark…in all the years to come…in your most private moments…I want you to remember…my hand…at your throat…I want…you to remember…the one man who beat you."
