Midway and DC Comics are Super Friends

Holy franchise licensing deal, Batman!

Midway have signed a licensing deal with DC Comics and Warner Brothers to produce games based on their Justice League comic, which spawned the trippy Super Friends cartoon series during the 1970s. The deal gives Midway access to some of the world's best known super-heroes, including Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman, as well as more obscure (and frankly useless) characters such as Aquaman and .. er .. Wonder Dog. Yes, we hope that one gets left on the cutting room floor. No self-respecting hero would be able to don his gaudy costume without a super villain to do battle with, and Justice League should give Midway access to everyone from Lex Luthor and The Joker to The Shade and Brainiac. Midway are said to be "looking forward to bringing these iconic characters to gamers everywhere", especially as the Justice League has recently been revived, with a new cartoon series and tie-in comic launched late last year. Expect to see a whole plethora of heroes and villains finding their way on to the GameBoy Advance and next-generation consoles some time in the not-so-distant future.
