Posted Mon, Aug 31, 2009 by Martuk

Superhero MMOGs have not always been a bright prospect in the MMO universe, but recently there has been an outbreak of superhero based MMOs with City od Heroes leading the way and paving a path for games like Champions Online, and DC Universe Online. Gamasutra recently spoke with DC Universe Online's Senior Producer, Wes Yanagi to talk about Sony Online Entertainment's superhero-based MMOG, DC Universe Online.

The story in this world is vast. That's why we wanted to bring in professionals to help us out with that. Jim Lee is the executive creative director for the project. He and his guys at WildStorm pretty much concepted every piece of art in the game, so that we have that authentic DC comic book look and feel. Then Geoff Johns and Marv Wolfman [came] up with the storylines for this, and established why there are thousands of new players entering the world.
