Of course, the story it’s based upon is iconic. And there’s plenty to do in the update, too; players will be able to explore a new version of Metropolis in the wake of Doomsday’s rampage along with new daily and weekly missions. So it’s a celebration of an important part of the character’s history, and not to spoil a decades-old story too much, but it doesn’t end with Superman staying dead. Still, it might send… mixed messages.
DC Universe Online players have enjoyed him in a more active role, though, so it may seem a bit odd that the game’s big event to celebrate four score years of the Last Son of Krypton is… the Death of Superman. That’s a bit unusual, isn’t it? “To celebrate your anniversary, you’ll die”?
