Geoff Johns to write back story for DCUO
DC Comics writer, Geoff Johns signs up to pen the back story of DC Universe Online. Not only is he responsible for bringing Green Lantern back, but he has also worked on many other prominent titles and series. Such as Infinite Crisis, Stars and S.T.R.I.P.E., Justice Society of America and Superman among many others.
The game takes place in the current comic book DCU, Johns said, indicating there wasn't a connection to the universes of movies or TV shows. "It's pretty current with the comic book universe. The game doesn't come out for awhile, but I also know where the DCU is going to be then," he said. "I know what the DC Universe is going to be like, so some of the stuff, I can get into synch and make sure it will be as close to modern day as possible, like a neo-iconic version of the DC Universe. It's pretty close to being a modern day comics version of the DC Universe."
