Michael Ironside voices Darkseid in the newest LEGO Super-Villains trailer

If you missed this new LEGO Super-Villains trailer and you’re an old school DC “animated” Darkseid fan, you need to check it out.

Insignificant specks

In LEGO DC Super-Villains, the Justice League has disappeared, leaving Earth’s protection to a newcomer group of heroes from a parallel universe, proclaiming themselves as the ‘Justice Syndicate’. Renowned DC Super-Villains from the ‘Legion Of Doom’ discover Earth’s newest heroes may not be the heroes they claim to be. With each player’s completely customizable Super-Villain character in command, this team of misfit lawbreakers must join forces to discover and foil the evil plans the incognito strangers have in store.

How freaking cool is that? Michael Ironside first played the Lord of Apokalips, Darkseid, in the classic Superman: The Animated Series. His voice is the one that I’ll always associate with the character. It’s so heavy and badass that it just fits perfectly.

Of course, we also get other DC animated mainstays voicing in this game. The attention to classic DC animation is just so awesome to see as a fan. Or… hear, I guess. The game itself is shaping up nicely too, with customizable player-characters and a pretty fun vibe. I got some hands on time with it at SDCC.

Shockingly, it does actually differentiate itself from a lot of the LEGO stuff that’s hit before. It’s mainly due to the vibe. It’s “fun”, for lack of a better word. I’m looking forward to playing more.

Looking forward to playing as well? Then you’ll want to know that LEGO DC Super-Villains arrives on consoles and the PC on October 16th.
