Anthrax - 2/10/2013, 7:14 PM

Superman looks drunk! I am all for "new takes", but considering we are yet to get a decent Superman game, we should put any "new takes" on hold until that is achieved.
DrDoom - 2/10/2013, 7:22 PM
Doomsday looks like a [frick]ing Godzilla villain lol
sbdc1939 - 2/10/2013, 7:29 PM

Somewhere in some alternate timeline this game and the Wonder Woman TV show got made and the Arrow pilot was never picked up. Let's be glad we don't live there.

RedLantern659 - 2/10/2013, 7:43 PM
Its simple the creators of the batman arkham series need to make a superman game.
thewolfx - 2/10/2013, 7:54 PM
Iv akways thought doomsdays green shorts were stupid and that he should ve rocking some green tatttered cloth around his waist.

But they made him big as fck in this game thatsjust dumb

They need to make the first good superman game already

failed? seems about right
BubblesShedAndBreakfast - 2/10/2013, 8:01 PM
I don't want a depressed Superman fighting a giant Doomsday! If that's what other would like, cool for them but I'm glad this got canned.
NightForce - 2/10/2013, 8:08 PM
The best Superman game is LEGO Batman 2
Franshu - 2/10/2013, 8:12 PM
Looks cool. I mean, the design of the characters is meh, the art is decent as copncept art, but the concept it suggests for the game certainly seems interesting

He doesn't even have an S on his chest.
XavierLehnsherr - 2/10/2013, 8:13 PM
Superman Shadow of Apokolips was decent.

Supes games have been shit! From the N65 version to the Superman Returns movie game.
Brady1138 - 2/10/2013, 8:56 PM
Why do people feel like they always have to change the suit?
Durango95 - 2/10/2013, 9:00 PM
This guy needs to go back and study the human form. Also, is Superman a greaser?
xXkryptoniteXx - 2/10/2013, 9:09 PM

DC Universe Online was the best Superman game, even if it was not focus on him but the fact of being your own hero in the DC world. Especially when flying around Metropolis and flying by Superman's statue. Epic and I miss having the time to invest and play that game.
KoonEl - 2/10/2013, 9:15 PM
I really liked Superman Returns until I got through most of it and realized they just kept repeating the same villains over and over again. The game was still 100 times better than the movie.

I still play every once in a while.

I love my Kryptonian Commander controller armor.

I just wish that someone could make a Superman game that didn't make you want to toss your game system out of the window. Seriously, there's never been a Superman game worth more than shitting on.

I have never gone Number 2 on my PS3 after playing DCUO.

I just turned it off and then I went to sleep.

With WB/DC's track record of bad decision making.. man.. That was close..

funny gifs
mgeoff88 - 2/10/2013, 11:13 PM
Wow... It's really not that hard to make a great Superman game.

I hope we get one someday that does The Man of Steel justice.

The Superman Returns game was a move in the right direction, I actually had fun with it for the first few hours, but it became too repetitive.
AlexDeLarge87 - 2/11/2013, 3:12 AM

Just give it Arkham City graphics and great main story and it will be awesome.

Blanca, how did you get in this game?
jimoakley666 - 2/11/2013, 5:14 AM
Interesting. Not loving the Super-Mullet though.
ComicBookGoth - 2/11/2013, 7:13 AM
that doomsday concept reminds me of Joshua Walker the All-American Boy.
