Justice League Heroes is the first major pairing of all of the major Justice League characters in a single video game. Most games in the past have dealt specifically with Superman or Batman and were usually tied to feature films or the various animated shows. The game also features some recognizable names in the voice casting. Ron Perlman (Hellboy) as Batman; Michael Jai White (Spawn) as Green Lantern; Crispin Freeman (Kingdom Hearts II) as Superman; Courtenay Taylor (God of War) as Wonder Woman; Chris Edgerly (Drawn Together) as The Flash; Kari Wahlgren (Steamboy) as Zatanna; and Daniel Riordan (Transformers) as Martian Manhunter. Portraying select villains will be Peter Jessop (Spawn) as Brainiac and Carlos Alazraqui (Reno 911) as The Key. Additionally, Ralph Garman (Family Guy) will voice Green Arrow.

Aquaman has some interesting powers in the game, such as a water whirlpool that traps foes called a “whirlpool”. The hero of Atlantis also has a sword and water shield. Aquaman is not the only character that can be unlocked. Green Arrow can also be unlocked in the game.

The game boasts an Original story by award-winning comic and animation writer Dwayne McDuffie (Static Shock, Justice League & Teen Titans).

JLH will arrive in Fall 2006 for the PS2, Xbox, PSP, GBA and Nintendo DS.
