Team OXM may be rather heroic when it comes to fix­ing ty­pos, but we doubt that’ll get the Jus­tice League re­cruiters on the phone. At least we have DCUni­verseOn­line to act out our cape-don­ning fan­tasies. Day­break’s more-than-ser­vice­able MMO has been around for years, but it still of­fers plenty of snappy (al­beit grindy) su­per­hero ac­tion, even if its span­dex is a lit­tle out of date. Its real-time com­bat of­fers punchy, throw­away fun, while tak­ing on mis­sions for the sadis­tic Joker, or go­ing out on dun­geon crawls where you prune Poi­son Ivy for goods, of­fer spinet­in­gling thrills for comic-book fans. Sure, buy­ing Mar­ket­place Cash for real money can be costly. But pro­vided you’re not des­per­ate to buy loads of kit for your cus­tom hero or vil­lain (the char­ac­ter creator here is se­ri­ously good), there’s plenty of free fun to be had in DC’s on­line play­ground.

$$$$$

The vast ma­jor­ity of DCUO can be en­joyed for free, but iconic cos­tume good­ies may en­tice your wal­let, so be­ware.
