    I dig the Arrow skin. As a fan of the show, it's nice to see him included.

    They should've just called this "LEGO: the Justice League."

    Kevin Smith! That's pretty awesome, I have to admit.

    I doubt it would've sold as well on name recognition. I'm a pretty casual comics fan, and even then may be stretching it slightly, and last year, the most I could tell you was that the Justice League was a thing. No idea who was in it apart from Batman and Superman. Lego Justice League? Maybe, maybe not. Lego Batman? Sold.

    Pretty sure that Lego Batman 2 could have taken that title. This one is Lego Everyone we could possibly think of. Seriously, I love the LEGO games but I was pretty satisfied with LEGO Batman 2's roster. Aside from adding Green Arrow, which is a no brainer, there's not much they can do to meaningfully expand the roster. Adding normal people is a great novelty but who's going to play with them for more than 5 minutes. Now if they expanded some of the other heroes rogues gallery, that would be interesting.

    Good point. I hadn't thought of it that way. I've been a fan of the DC comics'/the Justice League for 14 years, so it's hard to imagine how some might not be in the same boat.

    The Creative Director? Seriously? Are they just trying to make him the DC version of Stan Lee?

    You're right, Lego Batman 2 had the same huge character roster thing going on.

    kevin smith... while that is really cool, i'm surprised he was not in lego marvel instead. i seem to remember them talking about Marvel characters a lot more in his movies. (actually all i really remember was them discussing Hulk's privates, and also Superman having sex.) but he even had Stan Lee make at least one appearance. i guess he's probably a fan of both companies though. good for him.

    Man, Kevin Smith reminds me of Hank Scorpio from The Simpsons, more or less alike, lol.
