Brainiac and his villain cronies have developed a master plan
to conquer the world and eliminate the Justice League forever.
Using the extraordinary super powers and expert fighting techniques
of Batman, Superman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Wonder Woman
and other favourite DC Comics super heroes, players must join
the Justice League to ultimately save humanity from Brainiac's
destruction and the even darker forces that are lurking in
League Heroes, is an action game featuring the characters
from the DC Comics universe that make up the Justice League
of America. You can either play alone (swapping between the
two on-screen characters, or as a two-player game where each
