The world has gone Bat-mad. We’ve got Lego Batman, Batman toys, and some film apparently.

But our Batmania has not subsided. We want more. Much more. DC has realised this, and created a game so damn cool you may start to cry. It’s called “DC Universe Online” – and it looks sweet. You get to be a superhero in an online world – and can beat the digital crap out of your fellow lycra-clad saviours. We’re not sure how the sheer might of Superman evens out, but we’ll see. Maybe he has a dicky leg.

Anyway, so the DC Comics universe can be yours – you too can be Christian Bale. Hopefully without the family violence accusations, mind.

When? Watch this space – but we’re looking at some time mid-2009.
