NetherRealm, developers of Mortal Kombat, is bringing us Injustice: Gods Among Us which is a game featuring the iconic characters from the DC universe. When I played Mortal Kombat 9, I was graced with the best story ever written for a fighting game. Yeah, I know that fighting games have really crappy stories which is why I really appreciated how straightforward and concise Mortal Kombat 9's story was. With such a track record, I expect that story for Injustice will be just as good as Mortal Kombat 9's. What makes Injustice quite piquant is the fact that each of the stages has various hazards that the players can use to their advantage i.e. picking up a car and smashing it against your opponent. As far as we know, there is only a default of one round instead of the normal 3; this is made up for the fact that each character has two life bars.
Here are a list of characters revealed so far:
- Green Arrow
- Green Lantern
- Harley Quinn
- Lex Luthor
- Solomon Grundy
- Wonder Woman
Other rumored playable characters include Aquaman, Black Adam, Doomsday, Raven, Captain Marvel, and Sinestro. However, it has been mentioned that there will be a handful of DC characters that will only appear as cameos. Out of these rumors, I'm willing to bet that Doomsday is playable just because he appears on the arcade stick. If you ask me, I agree with a handful of fans that there shouldn't be anymore Batman characters. As much as I love the Batman franchise, I feel that this DC game should feature and eclectic array of DC villains and superheroes instead of it being a Batman and Friends game.
