While the core gameplay follows the same style of past Lego titles, including the addition of a two-player cooperative multiplayer mode, DC Super-Villains is the first title to incorporate a customized character into the story. The plot centers around the villains of the DC Universe who, in the aftermath of the Justice League's disappearance, reluctantly take on the role of the Earth's protectors and must defeat a rival group of supervillains from another universe, who are masquerading as heroes while searching for a powerful item for their master.
Like previous titles from the Lego Batman trilogy, such as DC Super Heroes and Beyond Gotham, players gain access to a roster of iconic characters from the DC Universe, each with their own unique abilities. Lego DC Super-Villains stands out from other Lego video games by being the first to incorporate the use of a custom character, who becomes integrated with the game's story. Initially players devise their looks, name, and style of fighting, but gain access to super-powers for their character to use as they progress in the story, along with unlocking customisation options.
Following the capture of a super-powered individual dubbed "The Rookie", Commissioner Gordon oversees their transfer to Stryker's Island in Metropolis. As the Rookie possesses a previously-unseen ability to absorb energy to gain new super-powers, Gordon offers the incarcerated Lex Luthor a reduced prison sentence in exchange for monitoring them and assessing their potential threat. Before he can agree to the deal, Luthor's bodyguard Mercy Graves arrives to break him and the Rookie out of prison, and the trio escape alongside several other imprisoned villains, though they are pursued by the Justice League. Meanwhile, the Joker and Harley Quinn steal several items from Wayne Tech, with Batman giving chase. The combined group of villains are defeated by the sudden arrival of the "Justice Syndicate", a superhero team from a parallel universe, with only a few escaping. Before departing, Harley witnesses the Syndicate forcibly warp the Justice League away.
The Syndicate claim that the Justice League are on an off-world mission and that they are their replacements, with the group's leader Ultraman posing as reporter Kent Clarkson to feed further false information to the public. Suspicious of the Syndicate, Luthor begins uniting a massive force of villains to expose the truth and defeat the Syndicate so that they might take over. Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen also begin their own independent investigation. During their research, the villains discover the Justice Syndicate is actually the "Crime Syndicate", who are the Justice League's villainous counterparts from Earth-3, and that they are searching for something on Earth, using their superhero personas to gain easy access to classified information and locations. Once a large enough group has been assembled, the united Legion of Doom launch an attack on the Crime Syndicate on top of LexCorp, but Luthor betrays everyone, planning to use the Syndicate's technology to be rid of them all in order to rule the Earth alone. Furious at Luthor's betrayal, the Rookie tries to stop him by blasting the machine with energy, causing it to malfunction; inadvertently bringing Apokolips near Earth and teleporting everyone present to random locations.
As the Syndicate tries to maintain order on Earth, the Joker, Harley and the Rookie find themselves on Apokolips and encounter Darkseid, the Syndicate's secret master who ordered them to search Earth for the last piece of the Anti-Life Equation. As Darkseid discovers them, the villains are rescued by the Justice League, who have just escaped their imprisonment on Apokolips. Escaping Darkseid's forces, the group learn the Syndicate has fooled the people of Earth into believing the Justice League have become evil, prompting the League to form an uneasy alliance with the Legion of Doom to defeat them.
After gathering more forces, the alliance tricks Johnny Quick into revealing the Syndicate's plans on camera. Lois broadcasts the footage worldwide, turning the public against the Syndicate. Upon defeating and sending the Syndicate back to Earth-3, the alliance focus on finding the last piece of the Equation. Batman soon discovers it to have been inside a Mother Box that Harley stole from Wayne Tech, until the Rookie inadvertently absorbed it while sending the Crime Syndicate back to Earth-3. Learning that Darkseid is sending his forces to Earth to track it down, the alliance attempts to protect the Rookie, but they are captured and taken to Apokolips, forcing the League and the Legion to mount a rescue mission. Though the Rookie is rescued, Darkseid absorbs the last piece of the Equation. However, it proves ineffective as it was altered by the physiology of the Rookie, who is now revealed to hail from Earth-3. The Rookie then uses the Anti-Life Equation to defeat Darkseid and alter his and his forces' psyches, making them kind. Though Luthor attempts to abandon them again and take over Earth, the alliance manages to restore Apokolips to its original location and return home. The Rookie is then given the chance to join the Justice League as a superhero, or to continue working for the Legion of Doom as a supervillain; the choice made is left up to the player.
If the player chooses to join the Justice League, Luthor will express disappointment at the Rookie for betraying him even though the Joker reminds Luthor that he tried to send the Rookie to the other side of the universe twice. Livewire then uses her ability to blind the Justice League and the Rookie so the villains can make their escape. The Rookie then joins the Justice League to chase down the villains.
If the player decides to join The Legion of Doom, the Joker suggests that the Rookie become their new leader as Luthor can no longer be trusted. The Rookie then teleports the villains away with Batman stating that he hates it when he's right. The Legion is then teleported to safety so they can resume their criminal activities.
The game was leaked by Walmart Canada in May 2018. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment announced the title officially on 30 May 2018. Game director Arthur Parsons revealed that the concept of a super villain themed game dates back in 2008's Lego Batman: The Videogame, with featured levels based on a villain's point of view of the story.
@Jeronan, I completely agree with you., DC in my opinion has the best characters be it hero's or villains and for me DC's comics are hands down the better comics, even in the animated department DC has the better animated tv shows and animated movies. My alltime favorite comic adaptation happens to be The Watchmen. Overall though Marvel does have the better live action movie adaptations for their comics, its just a shame Warner has drop the ball in that area for DC's comics.

Harley Quinn watches the scene unfold as she escapes with Lex, Mercy, and The Joker. The Justice Syndicate broadcasts a message to Earth, introducing themselves as heroes from another world to temporarily replace the Justice League while they attend to a mission in space. Harley watches the broadcast, completely baffled at the lies being told. The group splits, with The Joker and Harley continuing their mission to find an object of value, starting by recruiting The Riddler, Clayface, and Scarecrow. The new trio is tasked with raiding the vault within the GCPD to acquire a "toy" for The Joker. They successfully break into the vault as Batgirl and Nightwing arrive to stop them. Before the two can apprehend the villains, Catwoman and Two-Face arrive and knock them unconscious. The group exit the GCPD with many of their old toys returned, but Nightwing and Batgirl catch up to them to stop the truck. In the ensuing chase, Harley is ejected from the vehicle shortly before it crashes into the Iceberg Lounge. Joined by The Penguin, the group defeats Nightwing and Batgirl, though some villains are knocked unconscious in the process. Riddler, Catwoman, and Clayface manage to escape. However, Owlman's arrival sees the others captured by the GCPD and sent to Arkham Asylum.
Cheetah arrives at the Hall of Doom with the Rookie in tow, meeting up with Catwoman, Riddler, Clayface, and various other villains. Catwoman brings up the notion that the Justice Syndicate may not be who they say they are. The group discusses how to reveal such an idea to the world, allowing the villains to wreak havoc. Heat Wave brings up the idea of traveling to Earth-3, and Reverse-Flash mentions that they may be able to use The Flash's Cosmic Treadmill at S.T.A.R. Labs to achieve this. Catwoman plans to track down Harley Quinn, as Riddler heard her say she saw the Justice Syndicate do something suspicious. Reverse-Flash travels to S.T.A.R. Labs alongside Heat Wave, Captain Cold, Malcolm Merlyn, and the Rookie. The group arrives at S.T.A.R. Labs to find the Cosmic Treadmill destroyed. In the process of repairing it, they run into Killer Frost and Mirror Master. Kid Flash soon arrives alongside Beast Boy and Raven in an attempt to stop the villains. The villains quickly get the upper hand in battle, while Reverse-Flash successfully discovers that the Justice Syndicate is actually the Crime Syndicate, evil parallels of the Justice League from Earth-3. Johnny Quick, Deathstorm, and Atomica soon arrive to assist Kid Flash, Beast Boy, and Raven apprehend most of the group. Only Killer Frost and the Rookie manage to escape. 041b061a72
