DC Comics' JLA Vol 1. #23, 1998

NEW EVENT: STARRO THE CONQUEROR

In STARRO THE CONQUEROR, a new large-scale event launching this April, Starro and his minions are assaulting citizens in Central City, controlling iconic heroes and villains across the DC Universe, and preparing for an all-out invasion of Earth.

SJ'S TAKE: "Starro was the first villain the Justice League ever faced as a team, so he's significant both historically and as a major threat to the universe. We’re talking way back in the Silver Age in Brave and the Bold #28! We’ve given him an update, and he will bring his devastating affinity for mind control to bear in DCUO." - SJ Mueller, DC Universe Online Creative Director

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT STARRO THE CONQUEROR:
  • Starro The Conqueror will be a limited-time, large-scale, and recurring event accessible to all players.
  • The event will feature a variety of single and multiplayer adventures, including:
    • Open world missions set in a new area of Central City.

NEW EPISODE: AGE OF JUSTICE

In AGE OF JUSTICE, DCUO's 28th episode launching this June, timelines are becoming unstable, universes are collapsing, and a new threat is moving to remake the future by undoing victories of the past. Today's heroes and villains will travel back in time to 1940's World War II to confront this threat and assist the Justice Society in their ongoing fight.

SJ'S TAKE: "The fabric of our reality is so fragile that any time travel is a tremendous risk, but protecting this moment in time is a risk worth taking. Gather your team and set your clocks back to 1944, because the JSA and the Blackhawks need you to stop the greatest threat the 20th century has ever seen!" - SJ Mueller, DC Universe Online Creative Director

THINGS TO KNOW ABOUT AGE OF JUSTICE:
  • Age of Justice is a large-scale episode, included with Membership or available for purchase.
  • The episode will feature a variety of open world and instanced content at end-game difficulty.
  • Players will meet new era-appropriate heroes and villains and travel to new locations, including a World War II-inspired battlefield.
