The current issue of Best Buy's GAMER Magazine hit Monday revealing a pair of new villains for NetherRealm Studio's "Injustice: Gods Among Us." Superman's arch-enemy, Lex Luthor, and the man who broke the Bat's back, Bane, have both been added to the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U fighting game's roster.
Luthor is in his power armor that allows him to be a closer match to the super powered heroes with its enhanced strength and gadgets. Meanwhile Bane is in a form that is more closely attuned with the comics instead of the recent "Dark Knight Rises" movie with the full Luchador mask.
Here is how both Luthor and Bane were described in the article.
True to his hulking form, Bane is a power character and a master of grappling who uses wrestling-inspired moves without a projectile in sight. The Batman villain's character trait is to pump venom through his body. When triggered, it amps up his power and makes him even more dangerous.
Superman's nemesis is not only key to the story mode, but he's also a heavy-duty fighter, thanks to his armored suit. Luthor relies on gadget-based attacks, and can launch missiles and suck foes towards him. His special trait is a shield that can be powered up by holding a button.
"Injustice: Gods Among Us" is due out this April for the PS3, Xbox 360 and Wii U.
