I’ll be honest here- I don’t know much about the lore behind DC Comics. Much of what I do know comes from cartoons, and the watching of, well into an age where I should have stopped watching comics and started watching, I dunno, Survivor or something equally as terrible. From these cartoons, as well as a few gems I picked up just randomly over the years, I do know a few things worth noting. Most of these have to do with superpowers and the people who have them, with no regard to things that are actually happening or have happened in the comics.
Maybe it was my subconscious desire to play Arkham City when it came out compared to an effort to save money for the holiday season, but when Steam announced DC Universe Online was now a free to play, I had to pick it up. Maybe I’m just a sucker for super hero based MMOs.
