Earlier this week a sequel to Lego Batman was announced and it features more of the DC Universe than before. Featured in the upcoming game is Superman. Aside from DC Universe Online, Superman hasn’t appeared in a video game since Superman Returns in 2006. Before Factor 5 shut it’s doors it was working on a Superman game that looked very promising. People hoped that it would break the cycle of bad Superman games that still goes to this day.
Going by the codename “Blue Steel” the game was going to feature a who’s who of Superman villains that have and haven’t been seen in the Video Game medium. Daveed Kaplan, who worked on the game in ’08 has released some of the concept art for the canceled game that makes us all scream a nerd cry.

I was at some diplomatic party once. Got to talking to this princess who told me that when it came to Superman, I was missing the point. She told me, "His real strength lay in his generous spirit and sense of what's fair." - King Faraday

He’s much more of a working class superhero, which is why we ended the whole book with the image of a laboring Superman. He’s Everyman operating on a sci–fi Paul Bunyan scale." - Grant Morrison
