DCU in 2011: Luthor wins in DC UNIVERSE ONLINE LEGENDS #1

If there was a crowd-stopper at last year's San Diego and New York Comic-Cons, it was definitely the DC Universe Online cinematic trailer: a great, six-minute piece of animation where the big heroes of the DC Universe, well, get absolutely destroyed.

Each time the trailer played in our booth, most everyone within a thirty-foot radius (myself included) would stop in their tracks and watch for the full video. The trailer's pinnacle comes when Lex Luthor [SPOILER WARNING] impales Superman with a kryptonite-tipped spear, which would draw a gasp from the crowd each time without fail.

Sony Online Entertainment reveals latest DC Universe Online trailer

Just in time for Gamescom in Cologne, Germany, our friends at Sony Online Entertainment have raised the curtain on another new trailer for DC Universe Online. The video is a doozy, and reveals some of the over-the-top combat and customized characters, as well as the powers and movement sets that players can choose from when creating their own addition to the DCU. Are you as eager to play this game as I am?
