LEGO usually seems to have a way of bringing out more personality in DC’s characters than the animated or live action shows/films do. Anyone who’s familar with LEGO’s DC stuff knows this isn’t just an opinion.
I’m curious as to if anyone has watched The Lego Batman Movie? Or any of the DC related LEGO movies? Played any of the Lego DC games? If you have not, I recommend them as they may show you a new/different side of your favorite DC characters. (If you’ve seen my other posts mentioning the Lego Batman games and Lego DC Super Villains, you probably already know that I place them as equals when compared to the Arkham series).
It’s strange also because the characters are that much more pronounced, I’m drawn to different characters. As you may already know, many of my favorite DC characters are by default: Strong female characters but in the LEGO DC world, I’d more drawn to Deathstroke and Deadshot, some Clayface as well. Why, I ask myself?
I think it’s how the character animates and flow that changes everything, not to mention LEGO’s unique brand of humor which us mostly kids friendly but sometimes throws of hidden undertones of adult humor as well. Very different from DC’s stories.
Are LEGO DC’s stories just all warm and fuzzy? No, they can be really deep, brutal and emotional. So that’s just another reason to give them a go, yeah? Yeah!
It also doesn’t hurt that LEGO uses DC’s most loved voice actors/actresses in their cartoons, movies and games.
