Not talking about mobile specifically, but I always had an idea for a superman game. For a while now, I've wanted to see a Superman game handled like the over-the-top cinematic assault that is Asura's Wrath, the dramatic encounters and free fighting you see in God of war, presented in a sandbox world of massive scale. Preferably, multiple cities around the globe and other worlds as well. The DC universe is rife with storylines and villains that could make that possible, and you need something with a massive scale in order to make a game with a character as powerful as superman work. Same thing with the dragon ball Z. Unfortunately, it seems like all we will ever get are half baked attempts, and it annoys me since the Arkham games for Batman are, mostly; so good. As a fan of both of them, I would like to see them treated with mutual effort.

Yah I would prefer they take advantage of the PC for something like that. Also always thought why they can't do something like not Arkham, but Mass Effect. Superman is too huge scale for Arkham due to interstaller and alternate universe worlds. I mean they could do so many cool varieties of gameplay too. Just fighting mxyplyzyk around DC or even teleporting to different worlds. Going to Apokolips etc. A series like Mass effect with the same level of depth and character exploration would be insane.
