Because there’s no such thing as a surprise anymore, Sony Online Entertainment’s “mystery guest” for NYCC has been revealed by early shipping copies of Wizard’s latest issue. The man in question is living legend Marv Wolfman. With a tiny story in his past called Crisis on Infinite Earths, Wolfman has a pretty intimate knowledge of most every character in the DCU. Geoff Johns did the original plotting, and Wolfman will be working from those plots to further flesh out the missions your created hero or villain can undertake alongside DC’s best and brightest good and bad guys. He joins Johns and artist extraordinaire Jim Lee, lending three very high profile comic book names to the ambitious PC and PS3 MMORPG. More details on Wolfman’s involvement will be revealed next week at the convention. Regardless, this game is looking better and better.
When reached for comment, the game’s PR representatives were currently unable to confirm or deny, as they didn’t expect the issue in question to be out this week at all.
