Lego Batman 2 Announced: Now with Extra Added Superman!

Our well of constant Star Wars stories has truly dried up, but at least we still have our two fail-safes, Batman and Lego! And why not combine the two in the freshly announced Lego Batman 2 for every video game system imaginable (Xbox, PS3, DS, Wii, Dreamcast, Gameboy Advance, Sissytendo 5000). But wait, this time there's a twist! Cranky loner Batman will now be joined by persistent hangers-on Superman, Wonder Woman and Green Lantern!

Seriously, how embarrassing is it for Superman and Co. that this game isn't called Lego Justice League or even Lego Super Friends? This announcement is the most blatant official admission that Batman is King and everyone else is his bitch. They're not even pretending any more. Superman is an impervious alien who can punch you into the sun and Batman is a crazy powerless human that dresses up like a bat to make villains piss. And guess which one the public voted for? What a wonderful world we live in.

Expect it to be released around the middle of the year, which is good, because there aren't too many games announced so far for 2012 that I'm excited about. I'll pick up this one for sure. For full press release details I'm going to drop the pretense and send you over to Joystiq where I heard about this first.
