New ‘DC Universe Online’ Trailer Asks You To Trust Lex Luthor

Lex Luthor looked like a clear villain when he showed up in a trailer for “DCU Universe Online” during E3 in June, but a new glimpse titled “Who Do You Trust?” makes him look like he could be trying to save the world.

It also makes Superman look like he’s faster than The Flash, which should be fun for DC readers to analyze.

This one is a doozy, and whereas earlier looks have focused more on characters and fighting, this one gives a heck of an added punch to the weight of the story. If everything is as it seems, Braniac duped even Lex Luthor and completely laid waste to Earth, defeating its heroes and villains alike.

In addition to moving quicker than The Flash, Superman roasts Black Adam’s face with his heat vision in this clip, which gets mighty epic.

In the end, I have to side with Batman, though. Lex Luthor in a supped-up suit of battle armor and cybernetic upgrades isn’t exactly the easiest figure to shake hands and play nice with. Nevertheless, it’s a compelling way to set up a game.
