It's like you can't go five feet in DC Universe Online's Gotham City or Metropolis without seeing superheroes and super villains duking it out. I bet property values are way down.

This batch of screens for Sony Online Entertainment's DC Universe Online show some over-the-top combat going on in the streets of Gotham and Metropolis. In other words, daily life in these two cities. I don't care if Superman or Batman is around all the time. Odds are they'll be someone else when the evil clown comes a calling, and you'll be the one who dies as the intro to the caped crusader's next big outing.

Why would you want to live in a city like this? Might I suggest reading Kurt Busiek's first Astro City trade for the answer?
