LEGO DC Super-Villains, sees the Justice League disappear to leave Earth’s protection down to a new group of heroes from a parallel universe. Proclaiming themselves as the ‘Justice Syndicate’, DC Super-Villains from the ‘Legion Of Doom’ discover that Earth’s newest heroes may not be the heroes they claim to be. With each player’s completely customisable Super-Villain character in command, it’ll be up to you to take charge of this team of misfit lawbreakers, joining forces to discover and foil the evil plans the incognito strangers have in store.
You will be given the opportunity to create your own unique villain and main character throughout, while also teaming up with a variety of DC Super-Villains throughout the story mode. And as progression takes place, new abilities and powers will be unlocked letting you continue to customise the character to take on the evil threat. Friends and family can join the story mode at any time too, with a fun, two-player, local co-op experience with epic boss fights.
