I think, at some point or another in our lives, we’ve all needed a hero. Someone to swoop in, save the day, and then feed us warm soup until the tummy ache goes away. As kids, sometimes we even imagined them, conjuring them out of thin air like so many baddie-melting laser beams from our mind’s eye. Scribblenauts Unmasked is kind of like that, only really, really dumb. It is dumb because you will inevitably make it dumb. If the Scribblenauts series has proven anything, it’s that when given the power to mold life into whatever shape we see fit, humanity will choose contorted monstrosities, fire kraken, and robot dinosaurs. Now take that and add every part and power of every DC hero and villain. Ponder the terrifyingly silly possibilities. Or just watch the video below.
And that was just one “hero” thrown together on the fly. Also, for the record, I would’ve gone the other way and made his gangly arms as gigantic as possible. Same with the googly eyes. Actually, he probably just would’ve been a pair of colossal googly eyes with spike arms.
Do you understand now what Scribblenauts does to people? DO YOU.
Anyway, Scribblenauts Unmasked will be out in September. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go memorize every adjective in preparation.
P.S. The trailer briefly mentioned Cyborg Superman, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t share this utterly superb (and slightly cybertronic) video production.
