Look who's in tow

After the LEGO Batman 2 leak last month, it was always a matter of time before Warner Bros. confirmed LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes, and indeed the publisher just revealed the sequel is due this summer.

Coming to Wii, 3DS and DS, as the title suggests LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes' cast includes more than just the Dark Knight, with Superman, Green Lantern and Wonder Woman all in tow to take on evil team-up Lex Luthor and the Joker.

@6 RedLink: "in tow"...it's a phrase in the English language.

a. in the state of being towed.
b. under one's guidance; in one's charge.
c. as a follower, admirer, or companion: 'a professor who always had a graduate student in tow'.

In this case, SUPERMAN is "in tow". That's what they meant.

@shingi_70 While I agree with you that yasha is wrong in calling Supes "weaksauce," Batman would beat him. Superman once gave Batman a kryptonite ring to use against him if there was ever the need. In fact, Batman is the one superhero that could take down the entire JLA.
@yasha Supes is not "weaksauce." Batman would still win. He's just that awesome.

No thanks. The LEGO Batman/Star Wars etc series have gotten stale and boring. The fact that the game is coming to the 3DS as well as the DS also shows it wont be great.

Well of course th hatgod prep tome batman could. On a realistic.note superman could kill batman from miles away with heat vision or decapitated him with super speed.

Batman should never be able to beat superman one on one unprepared.

@shingi_70 I'll give you that. One on one, sudden death match with no planning or preparation, Superman wins. Typically though, Batman would catch Superman off guard with a well thought-out surprise attack.

No hero or villain could defeat Superman not even Batman unless Krytonite was involved.

Please include the Flash. He was my favorite character in the most recent Justice League (Unlimited) cartoon.

Don't know if I'll buy it. Movies based off licenses generally(not always) live up to the rep of not being any good. I can't speak about but only the original LSW/2 on the Cube. Aside from those 2, I haven't had much exposure to the quality/gameplay of the other Lego titles. As I understand it by word of mouth, they're all just as fun as the LSW games from the Cube. While I may wanna get it, as it may turn out to be fun for me, I'll wait, & see if there are any other titles I wanna get @ the time. Gaming budgets are tight. have to prioritize my favs.

Also, for the side-discussion: Batman is the only (fully human) character, (let alone powerless aside from having both peak physical, & mental states) that can take down Superman, &/or any other super-powered/meta-human hero/villain, should the need arise, as @tertium_quid #8 said. That is how DC comics writes Batman.

@lonlon-milker Actually Traveller's Tales has said they'd love to do a LEGO Doctor Who, they just need LEGO to release a Doctor Who set first.

@Capt_N There are some fully human Green Lanterns who could hold their own against Superman (not even counting human magicians like Zatanna), and Green Arrow is powerless yet can kick some superpowered butt once in a while.

@26 Zach: A LEGO Doctor Who video game would be awesome! I'd love to see Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant and Peter Davidson in LEGO form.
