DC Comics Bombshells started out as a series of pinup-style variant covers. This summer it’s growing into a statue line, a comic book series, another wave of special covers and starring role in a brand new adventure in DC Universe Online.

Bombshell versions of Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Catwoman, Harley Quinn and Talia al Ghul make their video game debut in a new eight-person operation for DC Universe Online titled “The Bombshells Paradox.” The alternate version of Talia is attempting to alter the outcome of World War II, and it’s up to the players to aid the pinup heroes and set things right.

The new adventure is part of the game’s 15th update, which launches the League of Assassin’s narrative, hence the Talia nod.

Along with the Bombshells, update 15 also continues the “War of Light” storyline, introducing both Black Lanterns and the Indigo Tribe.

Were this three or four years ago I would have totally led with that.

Look for the update to hit the free-to-play DC Comics MMO for PC, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 this August, around the same time all of DC’s Bombshell goodness drops.
