Ten Ton Hammer recently met with legendary comic book artist, writer, publisher, and DC Universe Executive Creative Director Jim Lee and Game Director Chris Cao. DCUO's dynamic duo addresses questions ranging from the size, scope, and origin of the DC Universe in DCUO, to the potential for a Green Lantern expansion, to whether DCUO owes more to console action games or traditional MMORPGs, and much, much more!
"I asked Chris to explain a little more about what he meant by betraying your mentor and where that would leave players. As is probably obvious, betraying your mentor is for villains only. "I don't think it would be a satisfying villain experience if all the way along Joker is trying to throw you into the frying pan all of the time - 'Hey, why don't you go blow up the GCPD?' - and you don't get some payback at some point. I mean, he's not a mentor in any classic sense, he isn't concerned about your safety. I don't want to spoil the details, but betraying him is a natural evolution of the story you've been living out with him."
