DCUO Comic Con Panel

Posted by Jon Wood on Aug 05, 2009  | Comments

DCUO Comic Con Panel -'s Carolyn Koh attended the DC Universe Online panel at this year's Comic Con San Diego. While there, she compiled this report of what was said.

At the DCUO panel at Comic-Con 2009, Wes Yanagi and Jens Anderson of SoE and Jim Lee, Geoff Johns and Marv Wolfman of DC Comics spoke about the game and the challenges of bringing the DC universe from the printed page to a 3-D online game environment. DC Universe Online carries the tag line, "The Next Legend is You." But just what did that mean? As Wes explained, to them, it was about a player building their own legacy as they step into DCUO, and promised the means to do it in game.

To build DCUO, Jim Lee spoke of trying to pick the coolest of 70 years of DC continuity to be placed into the game and has created the structure of the DCUO world. Geoff Johns works on the story and triggers of why the world suddenly requires an influx of heroes - the players, and Marv Wolfman fleshes it out. He fills in the story content.

"If you look at it as a house," said Marv, "Jim has built the structure; the foundation, the posts and beams. I'm filling in with the windows and doors, the plaster and paint. Each of us comes up with an element of the story, and we then weave it all together."
