DC Universe Online gives players their choice of several comic-inspired powers, but one genre of abilities has been notably absent: stretching your body into crazy shapes like Plastic Man. Oh, and the Green Lantern's light powers.

Sony Online Entertainment has decided upon this summer to rectify that missing power set, with the first DCUO DLC, "Fight for the Light." In addition to about a million player-created Lantern types, Hal Jordan and other Green Lantern characters will appear in the $10 DLC. Three new scenarios will also bring players to S.T.A.R. Labs, Hal Jordan's home of Coast City, and the "Sciencells Prison" on the planet of Oa.

If any of those words mean anything to you, and you don't have Green Lantern PTSD from the movie, you'll want to check out the gallery below.

SOE Expands the World of DC Universe Online
with All-New Downloadable Content Pack

SAN DIEGO - July 11, 2011 - Sony Online Entertainment LLC (SOE) today announced the first Downloadable Content (DLC) pack for DC Universe Online (DCUO), "Fight for the Light." Featuring DC Comics favorite The Green Lantern (Hal Jordan) and the introduction of the game's seventh power set - Light, the new downloadable content will be available this summer for both PC and PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system.

"The Green Lantern has been a mainstay for DC Comics fans for more than 60 years, and is a fan favorite among our players," said Mark Anderson, Game Director of DC Universe Online. "We've listened to the feedback, and fans can now create their own Lantern-inspired characters including the use of light powers."

In addition to the new light power set, players will also be able to interact with Green Lantern based characters and content in DC Universe Online in these all-new gameplay scenarios:

S.T.A.R. Labs - Deep within S.T.A.R Labs, Brainiac seeks to control experimental devices that will allow him to harness the power source behind the Lantern Corps' rings. This attack throws the Lantern Corps into chaos, and players must join a fragile truce between the Green and Yellow Lantern Corps to bring the powerful devices back under S.T.A.R. Labs' control.

Coast City - Players must battle their way through the "City Without Fear" to Ferris Aircraft, the home of fighter ace Hal Jordan. Here they face the unbridled rage of the Red Lantern Corps in a showdown to save the city and the Universe.

Sciencells Prison - On the Green Lantern Corps' home planet Oa, heroes will join with Guy Gardner to stop a prison break that threatens to release the most feared prisoners of the Green Lantern Corps. Villains will fight alongside Sinestro as he attempts to release the Green Lantern Corps' greatest foes and retrieve the evil Lyssa Drak from her emerald powered prison cell.

Green Lantern offers another exciting superhero for PC and PS3 players to join forces with in their epic battles online, following DCUO's ongoing combat missions featuring other DC Comics legends such as Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, The Joker and Lex Luthor.

DC Universe Online's "Fight for the Light" DLC pack will be available for download for $9.99 USD this summer for PC and PlayStation®3 players.
