We’ve all been waiting for a great Justice League game. With a roster of the world’s finest superheroes and villains, there’s no reason why we haven’t seen more games based on these legends. Well, rejoice, fans, because Outright Games is here to solve that issue with a new game titled Justice League: Cosmic Chaos! Mister Mxyzptlk is on the loose, and it’s up to Wonder Woman, Batman, and Superman to save the day.
Wait. Outright Games? Oh…
The gameplay looks straightforward, which is usually the case for Outright Games. The company has made a series of similar PAW Patrol titles, which weren’t exactly breaking new ground as far as gameplay goes. These titles are for kids first and foremost. Nothing about the art direction for Just League: Cosmis Chaos tells us otherwise. That’s perfectly fine because the game couldn’t be any worse than their last tie-in game, the ultra boring on-rails shooter, DC League of Super-Pets: The Adventures of Krypto and Ace.
Mister Mxyzptlk is a right bastard from the 5th Dimension. He travels through various realities to be a pain in the backside for DC heroes and villains. He’s typically vanquished when he is tricked into saying his name backward.
Unfortunately, we rarely get to see Mister Mxyzptlk in other media. He’s shown up in DC animated TV series from time to time, but he’s yet to make his big-screen debut in the DCEU. His initial appearance was in Superman #30 over 78 years ago. Mxyzptlk was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster. Over the years, the character has changed appearances, with his most recognizable incarnation similar to the one seen in our header image. Although, I do like the miniature impish businessman version from the early days. In fact, the same version appeared in the Bruce Timm Superman animated series, voiced perfectly by Gilbert Gottfried.
