Notorious Batman nemesis The Penguin is to get a starring role in Sony Online's DC Universe Online MMO with the next title update.

According to Massively, the new content will see you teaming up with bi-polar DC staple Harvey 'Two-Face' Dent to boot the villain out of Gotham.

In a smart twist, Dent will flip a coin at the outset of the new mission, with the game playing out differently depending on which side of his personality he adopts.

The 50/50 coin toss also carries over to PvP modes, with his attacks and stats different for both his Dent and Two Face alter-egos.

The update, which is due to go live in the next 10 days, also introduces Superman foe Mr. Mxyzptlk, although at this point it's not clear exactly in what capacity.

Various PvP exploits will also be smoothed over and something that director Chris Cao refers to as "chat 2.0." added in. You'll get push-to-talk functionality via the D-pad and an array of new social features, including revamped quick chat menus to make forming groups a more user-friendly process.

Sounds like another beefy update following last month's immense Catwoman-centric patch, with the title filling out nicely following a rather slim launch offering.
