Today, we here at Spiel Times will be taking a look at the Top 10 Coolest Characters from the game, LEGO DC Super-Villains.
The LEGO DC franchise is one of the most popular and successful out of all the LEGO franchises. It received so much success that it even has its own videogame, LEGO DC Super-Villains.
What are LEGO DC Super-Villains?
LEGO DC Super-Villains is an action-adventure open-world Lego game developed by Traveller’s Tales. This game is a direct spin-off of the original series of LEGO Batman games and focuses instead on the supervillains in the same universe.
As for the gameplay, it uses a third-person perspective and involves a classic beat-em-up playstyle. Furthermore, instead of using a known DC character, you play a custom character mainly. Similar to past games, you would have access to different iconic characters, this time, the ones in Batman’s Rogue Gallery.
The game LEGO DC Super-Villains honestly has a lot of really iconic and cool characters that it will for sure be difficult to choose only ten of them. There are over 270 characters in the game, with some requiring more effort to unlock than others.
For our choices, we won’t only be limiting ourselves to Supervillains but also include some Superheroes as well. We’ll also be viewing all available characters in the DLC packs as well.
Our rankings here will be done based on the following factors:
Coolness. This is rated based on how a character looks, sounds, and acts in-game. Plus points if characters are based on iconic versions from comic books, tv shows, or movies!
Powers and Abilities.For this one, we will take a look at the battle moves of the characters, how they move around in combat, and of course how much a powerhouse they are!
Enjoyment Factor.Here we rate how fun it is to play the character, and how the playstyle fits their character’s power fantasy. The more it feels like you’re playing a supervillain/superhero the better!
10 – Batman (Batman: The Animated Series)
This Batman version wears his classic outfit as seen in the Batman: The Animated Series.
The voice as well behind this Batman is none other than the iconic Batman voice himself, Kevin Conroy.
Batman, despite being in Lego form, has his stern crime-fighting aura.
Powers and Abilities
Batman uses his iconic bat-themed weapon, the Batarang, against his enemies to take them down
His martial arts prowess makes combos and strikes feel very impactful and devastating in battle.
This Batman is capable of gliding using his cape after leaping elevated distances. This allows him to iconically swoop in to fight crime.
While he might not be as super-powered as others, his gadgets and martial-arts prowess is always a joy to see.
Playing as the iconic Caped Crusader with full-on Kevin Conroy voice-acting is perfect for any Batman fan.
9 – Lobo
Lobo, the badass ruthless bounty hunter, is now in an adorable LEGO form.
While his grizzled and intimidating aura, he makes up for it in his gameplay.
His main weapons of choice here are his gun and a hook and chain. A very deadly combo!
Powers and Abilities
Lobo uses his big gun and hooks to cause some crazy damage with AOE attacks
For one attack, he swings around his hook and chain to make a whirlwind to shred anything in his path!
Lastly, Lobo is also capable of floating and gliding in the air but not by conventional means. He rides a Space Dolphin.
Yes. A Space Dolphin.
To fit the perfect bounty hunter experience, in-game there also exists a big hoverbike that he can ride on, the Spacehog.
Overall, this character lets you go crazy with his destructive capabilities and as well with unconventional abilities.
Some honorable mentions that didn’t fit the Top 10 are the following characters:
Two-face – This classic villain of Batman’s Rogue Gallery also makes use of his coin-flipping gimmick. He wreaks havoc using his guns as well as a rocket launcher.
Cat Woman – Another villain from Batman’s Rogue Gallery, she has a special ability that summons her cat, Isis, as a controllable unit.
Artemis/Tigress – This superhero also has an alter-ego with different weapons, allowing her to switch styles mid-battle. She can switch from the bow-wielding Artemis to the dangerous sword-user Tigress.
