As we get closer to the release of LEGO Batman 3: Beyond Gotham, we are getting more reveals of playable characters in the game. Earlier today, Game Informer revealed that Swamp Thing as well as Detective Chimp are the latest characters to be included in the game.
Swamp Thing began with a scientist named Alec Holland who invented a Bio-Restorative Formula to solve food shortage problems. However, some thugs planted a bomb in his lab and exploded. While Alec’s body was covered in the formula, he ran into a swamp and this affected the swamp’s plant life while imbuing it with his consciousness and memories. The result is the creation of Swamp Thing.
Detective Chimp, aka Bobo T. Chimpanzee, solves crimes with its human-level intelligence. While on his trip to Florida, he went to see the Fountain of Youth and there he gained the ability to speak to every living creature. He is currently affiliated with the team of supernatural heroes called Shadowpact.
Finally, there is also now an image of DC Comics Chief Creative Officer Geoff Johns who was announced yesterday that he will be a playable character.
