Superman Homepage reporter Isaac Frisbie attended the panel for the upcoming “Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League” video game from Rocksteady, which was held at 8:10pm EDT on Saturday, August 22 in the Hall of Heroes section of DC FanDome, and filed this report:
“Suicide Squad: Kill the Justice League” is an upcoming game from Rocksteady Studios (the makers of the well known Arkham series), which will center around the well known anti-hero group The Suicide Squad.
The story will take place in the same universe as the Arkham series and centers around the group having to combat and defeat Brainiac who is controlling the Justice League. The trailer shows a mind controlled Superman vaporize a pilot that he had supposedly just saved in front of Harley Quinn, King Shark, Deadshot, and Captain Boomerang.
The panel at DC FanDome covered some of the plot and gameplay. It will play similarly to the “Batman: Arkham” series with options to play multiplayer or to switch between characters while the others become AI (if it is a single player game).

Please delete this, I can’t seem to delete it on my side, it was an error.
I feel your pain….This is a slap in the face for Superman fans. There’s Metropolis and Superman. But you get to play as Suicide Squad members and fight mind-controlled Superman and the rest of the Justice League. Ugh, I’ll pass. The mind-control and villain (injustice series) tropes have been done to death already.
Yeah because that’s what the world needs right now or ever, Superman killing people.
Why can’t we just get a Superman video game where he’s the star and hero? I mean another evil Superman video game? Seriously? 🙁
As I have often said before I looked at the love for the character that exists in Spider-Man PS4 and I just have to think “Where is that for Superman? Why can’t there be something like this for him? That level of craft and care as well respect for the character, his history and his lore. Obviously Spidey PS4 doesn’t match one to one with any of the comics but dang if they didn’t capture it well enough for it to feel like you got dropped into the middle of a awesome tv series and it makes you want to… Read more »
