Seven years is a long time in comics. 2011 was the year DC Comics tried its "New 52" gimmick, Joe Quesada was replaced by Axel Alonso as the editor-in-chief of Marvel, and the first MCU Thor and Captain America films hit theaters.

Seven years is also a long time in MMOs; a lot of games don't make it that long. One exception is DC Universe Online, which has survived not only the years but also a change in management from Sony Online Entertainment to Daybreak Game Company/Columbus Nova. This month, it's celebrating its longevity with free gifts to members (subscribers) and free players alike.

From now until Jan. 31, members can log in to claim a box that contains emblems modeled after Metal, the current special DC series, in-game posters of Earth-3 Superman vs. Ultraman, and an unlocked Paradox Time Capsule. They, and free players, can additionally claim an updated Dark Spector Batsuit -- described as "swanky" -- that was originally only available to Tier 2 Tech heroes. If your membership has lapsed, select benefits have been switched on for the remainder of January. Finally, Marks of Victory have also been doubled for the rest of the month.

The announcement also includes a retrospective of 2017 and a not-really-informative-but-at-least-you're-trying-to-get-hyped look ahead to 2018. Check it out on the DCUO site.

DC Universe online was a fun game to play back in 2011 but now I would give this game a pass for a reason as to why most people abandon this game.
