Might be cool. I'm not the hugest fan of Crystal Dynamics' Tomb Raider series, but they're certainly competent devs.

Obviously it's going to be a spiritual successor to Bullfrog sim games where you have to build, maintain, and defend/repair a growing Avengers Tower.

I liked how Injustice's Nightwing could switch from the big Tim Drake staff to the Dick Grayson kali sticks, I suppose actually putting in a separate Robin character doesn't leave much for him to do.

It's too bad Secret Wars 2015 hasn't been adapted as a game; it's basically a perfect setup for one. There's a million versions of each character, tons of locations, and has complete and utter freedom built into it.

I feel like if Marvel Heroes had been released later, It would take place on Battle World.

There's nothing stopping them from adding Battleworld in a later expansion.

I thought Dick was standard Nightwing and Damian was the alt. I'm just talking purely gameplay wise here. Damian became red Nightwing yeah, but he's Robin now, so there should be no point in Nightwing for the sequel.

I keep hoping, I loved the new patches gameplay upgrades, but I'm so incredibly bored with the levels. There needs to be something new on the level of Asgard. I'm sick of running IC or MM constantly.

Original universe Nightwing is still alive in the game actually. It's Injustice Dick that's dead.

So they could have both in the game still. Seems like a waste of a slot though, he could just be an alternate skin for Damian now that they're doing more elaborate changes for some.

They've not given any indication that Earth-1 characters are in this one, though. It's supposed to be about Supergirl coming to earth and busting Evil Superman out of the pokey, I think?

It's the Black Canary Dr Fate sent to a different universe in the comic.

Apparently it's specifically the Black Canary from the Regime universe, who Doctor Fate saved and stowed away in (yet a third) alternate universe.

I like that the alternate skin they show at the end of the Canary trailer is her Gary Frank Birds of Prey outfit.
