Cancelled Justice League Game Pops Up Again, Looks Bizarro

Let’s be real: the Green Lantern project that was also supposed to be a Justice League game didn’t look like it was going to set the world on fire. But it’s an interesting footnote in the history of superhero games, one that would have featured some of the most popular fictional characters ever created. The newest video culled from the unreleased game offers up glimpses of the single-player experience. Me not think you shouldn’t take a look.

Just like the previous look at the unfinished Green Lantern/Justice League game, the latest look comes from the PTPOnline YouTube channel. You can see more of the roster of characters that would have been playable, including villains like Eclipso, Sinestro and Mongul. While the solo portions of the game look like middle-of-the-road, arena-brawler fare, it is interesting to see how dev studio Double Helix was mixing and mashing the comics lore — OMACs and an Eclipsed Batman, for example — to give players people to fight.

Also, Flash eats a hamburger both as part of his intro and during combat. Has to be Wally West, right?


  • This looked… average. I know that it was far far far from finished. Injustice Gods Among us was a great game for a fighter but that’s it, it was a fighter not an open world save the city game. The only game that I can think of that captured that “Super Hero” with “Special Powers” mood well is the inFamous series. So many of these original super hero IP’s (Spiderman, Superman, Greenlantern..etc) just fall short of that experience…… oh forgot Batman Arkham City. That one rocked!

    • DC Universe Online almost does, but it falls into that MMO trap of never allowing the player to feel powerful in level appropriate content.
