LEGO DC Super Villains is the latest in the LEGO DC Franchise. In this game, the Justice League has disappeared and been replaced by a group calling themselves the Justice Syndicate. They say they will keep the peace while the Justice League is gone but they’re actually villains in disguise! The traditional DC Villains like Lex Luthor, the Joker, and Harley Quinn all need to team up to defeat these new enemies and save the real Justice League!

The player will also create their own DC villain who will be at the heart of the entire story. Players can customize their villain, from their appearance to name to superpowers. This character can be switched out for other DC villains as various missions need to be completed. 

LEGO DC Super Villains helps kids practice and improve the following skills:

Flexibility: Adapting and adjusting to changing conditions and expectations.

There are various ways in which players can practice flexibility in LEGO DC Super Villains. When creating their own character, players have the ability to try something new and make their very own character to use in the game. There are different types of superpowers and many different ways to design your character’s appearance so players can try many different options before they create their perfect DC Villain. 

Flexibility is also important when puzzle solving and fighting in the game. Certain puzzles can only be solved by one or two characters within the game. So it is up to the player to determine which character is needed for certain situations. Players also have to adapt when fighting because no two battles are the same and fighting moves might need to be changed up to move on. 

Working Memory: Recalling and retaining information in our minds while working.

Players can practice their working memory skills in LEGO DC Villains by fighting or working through puzzles. The player needs to remember what buttons perform which functions and how they can use these combinations while they are in the middle of a fight. For players who struggle with working memory, they may find themselves forgetting how to execute a move, or even what button performs which function. The game occasionally helps out by having an icon above an item telling you which button to press but for other situations, playing through the initial levels should give them some experience with the controls before they have to move into more difficult situations.
