DC Universe Online is an MMORPG that lets players become a part of the DC Comics universe by creating their own hero, or their own villain, and interacting with some of the greatest characters in comic history. Throughout the series run, there have been many major events that have happened that were pulled straight from the pages of DC Comics history. Classic team-ups, classic events like Crisis on Infinite Earths, and even off-shoots that would focus on a specific hero or villain. Now, DC Universe is about to bring the arrival of one of the most feared villains in all of comic, Starro the Conqueror.
To the untrained eye, Starro the Conquerer looks just like a starfish with an eyeball, but in fact, he is indeed one of the most formidable villains in DC Comics history. For two reasons. One, he can regenerate from even the smallest part of himself, so even if you chopped him to pieces, he could still live. Two, Starro is able to reproduce smaller versions of himself. These replicants can attach themselves to summon and perfect control the person. Meaning that Starro is capable of conquering whole planets just by controlling its inhabitants into doing what he wants.
It is this kind of thing that DC Universe Online players can expect, as the concept art for his arrival shows smaller versions of Starro flying around and controlling heroes like Wildcat. The event itself will happen on April 5th, and with the event comes new open world missions, a duo mission, an alert mission, and a new raid for both everyone, and for end-game players.
So be ready heroes and villains, Starro is coming, and it looks like he’s playing for keeps! Will you be able to repel the conqueror? You’re going to find out soon.
