Yesterday, Lex Luthor and Bane were revealed as playable characters in the upcoming DC Comics fighting game, Injustice: Gods Amongs Us. The reveal came from leaked images of the new @Gamer magazine, and now today new information and images have surfaced from that very same article. This time we learn a bit about the plot and more importantly, learn that Aquaman, Sinestro, Doomsday and Shazam will all be playable characters.

Excerpt from the article:
Picking up in Gotham City, the initial moments show Metropolis utterly devastated by a nuclear explosion. Batman is seen interrogating the Joker in Gotham, during which the Man of Steel blasts through the wall and attempts to kill the Clown Prince of Crime, saying something about being drugged and duped into causing the blast. We then flash back to before the nuke detonated and take the role of Batman checking up on Joker at Arkham Asylum, after seeing sequences of familiar heroes and villains fighting in Metropolis. Sights of such characters as Aquaman, Shazam, Doomday and Sinestro hint at coming playble fighter reveals.

...Batman then appearson a space station where other DC legends are battling it out, and you'll fight Bane and Luthor in alternating showdowns. It's then that we see the nuke being planted at the center of Metropolis by Joker and Harley Quinn, with Luthor copping to masterminding the plan. Batman zaps back down to earth and the game shows a slow-motion sequence of him running towards Joker, while other heroes and villains fly in from above, and then-it cuts out. - atgamermagazine






What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat? From the indomitable DC Comics and the makers of the definitive fighting game franchise Mortal Kombat comes Injustice: Gods Among Us, a bold fighting game featuring a large cast of favorite DC Comics icons. Set in a world where the lines between good and evil are blurred, players will experience heroes and villains engaging in epic battles on a massive scale. A deep, original story compliments the fighting action that pits many of the great heroes and villains from the DC universe against each other -- Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, Wonder Woman and many others lose their allegiances and fight for Injustice!

Problem with those additions is to me they just seem like those characters you find in Tekken a lot where instead of using completely original characters they just use a similar one that tbh has the same combos just a different look (e.g. Sinestro is basically Green Lantern, Shazam although could be unique will end up very similar to Superman, Doomsday will be over-powered simple character like Grundy, and the only really unique of the four would be Aquaman).

Still hope they add unlockable characters irrelevant to the story like Booster Gold, Hawkman, and DrFate.
Also alternate costumes. And customisation. Tbh after buying Tekken Tag 2 I just really hope the creators of this take some notes on what little extras make a game just that little bit better.

lol @ Aquaman not even making the original lineup. DC has no faith in him whatsoever.
AUSSYACE - 1/9/2013, 5:05 PM
It just goes to show how epic the world of DC is when they can still add Superior A grade characters to their line up this late in production...

Make Mine DC....
BlueDemon - 1/9/2013, 5:08 PM
[frick] yes! I can't wait to use Doomsday
FightAs0ne - 1/9/2013, 5:08 PM
Can I haz Static?
imnotwearinghockeypants - 1/9/2013, 5:09 PM
Hell yeah on Doomsday.
JDUKE25 - 1/9/2013, 5:15 PM
Awesome

Jaspion - 1/9/2013, 5:22 PM
This Batman looks ugly as hell.
ironspider12 - 1/9/2013, 5:23 PM
how is aquaman going to work
unknownfacts - 1/9/2013, 5:44 PM
Doomsday and Aquaman are a plesent supprise.Sinestro was a given seeing as Green Lanturn was in the game.Shazam aka Captain Marvel is a welcome come back from Mortal Kombat vs DC.Good game on the DC side but the Mortal Kombat side left much to be desired.

On a side note.More Elemental characters like Fire,Ice,Killer Frost,Static,Heat Wave,Weather Wizard,or Black Lighting with actual black lighting like in the DC one shot series but with a costume simular before the new 52.
FightAs0ne - 1/9/2013, 5:51 PM
@LEVITIKUZ Nope ever since the game was announced I wanted him. I wanted Aquaman, Martian Manhunter, and Static. One down, two to go.
unknownfacts - 1/9/2013, 5:51 PM
Also is it just me or does those letter box read simular to the narater from the old Adam West Batman series.
JimmyPesto - 1/9/2013, 5:56 PM
Doomsday should not be playable but more like Goro. Sub-boss.
BANEofExistence - 1/9/2013, 5:59 PM
Bane, sinestro, shazam and Aquaman! My wish list is almost complete! All we need is black manta and black Adam and im all set!!!
Rhino4508 - 1/9/2013, 6:03 PM
YES!!!!!
JerBear - 1/9/2013, 6:14 PM
The character designs in this game suck major ass. WAAAAY too busy.
Rhino4508 - 1/9/2013, 6:17 PM
I'm sorry but Batman looks kinda stupid.
gammabolt17 - 1/9/2013, 6:43 PM
@Shamo

Hawkeye wasn't in Marvel 3 until Ultimate came along. If you're talking about being announced at initial reveal, Spider-Man wasn't announced with the "original lineup". You know damn well Marvel cares about Spider-Man, so that means squat.
gammabolt17 - 1/9/2013, 6:57 PM
By the way, he's talking about a cutscene guys so in no way is any of these characters confirmed as playable characters yet. I REEEEAAALLLLLYYYYY hope I'm wrong, though. I mean, any MK character in cutscenes was playable, right?
johnblake - 1/9/2013, 7:00 PM
Awesome idc what anyone says.
EdgyOutsider - 1/9/2013, 7:17 PM
Even though I wanna puke at the thought of Aquaman. I accept that he is in the game cause he is one of DC's flagship characters. I am really looking forward to this game cause I think of NetherRealm studios as gods in the video game world because Mortal Kombat is my all time favorite video game franchise. The newest one is the best and even though I will always be Marvel over DC, I am interested to see what NetherRealm does with the characters of the DC universe. Although, I knew I was gonna be satisfied with the game cause The Flash (I prefer Barry Allen) is gonna be in the game and the fact that Ed Boon knows how to tell a good story.
So stoked! Can't wait for the game! :)
dracula - 1/9/2013, 7:50 PM
they should get
Darkseid
Aries
Paralax
Garila Grodd
Captain Cold
Cheeta
Jollem - 1/9/2013, 7:52 PM
hells yes! buying this game now
Minato - 1/9/2013, 8:32 PM
I dont like batmans fighting stance in the game. His moves are fine but the way his hands are up and behind him make him look... passive.

DrDoom - 1/9/2013, 8:39 PM
DOCTOR [frick]ING FATE GODDAMMIT
JLU51306 - 1/9/2013, 8:56 PM
Keep in mind the excerpt doesn't say they are confirmed as playable. Instead, it says; "Sights of such characters as Aquaman, Shazam, Doomday and Sinestro hint at coming playble fighter reveals."
Which just means they were spotted either elsewhere in the magazine, or in some live play-through for the writer, and that he 'expects' playable fighter reveals.
Personally, I see no reason why Sinestro, Captain Marvel, and Aquaman would be relegated to cameo appearances, so I'd agree with the writer's assumption of upcoming reveals. Doomsday on the other hand, I could easily see as the writer noticing him in the background of the Fortress of Solitude arena, and thinking more of it than it really is.

Either way, exciting news.
Moakynubs - 1/9/2013, 9:36 PM
All great additions.
GhostKILLERgx7 - 1/9/2013, 10:08 PM
i wanted him to be in MK and i still want him now Atrocitus!

calin88 - 1/9/2013, 10:52 PM
This shit is getting old, they keep confirming a few characters every now and then, but by the time the game is out, not to mention dlc we will have : the DC Unicerse, Earth 2, Silber Age, Golden Age, you name it! It will be hard to find a character that is not in the game. I hope they add Watchmen soon
Sevairity - 1/10/2013, 6:01 AM
Static would be EPIC!

I'm still upset that they canceled his run in the New 52. He's one of my favorite characters.
ComicBookGoth - 1/10/2013, 7:25 AM
how the F*ck is Hawkman not in this Game yet ?!?!?!




IronHood - 1/10/2013, 7:32 AM
@Shamo
lol @ your stupid comment. DC has no faith in Aquaman? Then why are his comics one of the highest selling comics at DC at the moment???

I'm sure you've learned by now to keep your mouth shut & think before you use your mouth.
IronHood - 1/10/2013, 7:43 AM
@Rhino4508 That's your opinion, practically everyone else thinks he looks awesome!

Atrocitus, Watchmen are doubtful. Either Hawkman or Hawkgirl but not both. Elementals like Fire, Ice, Black Lighting would be great, but like the Hawk's. It'll only be either Black Lightning or Static. Doctor Fate should be in this game but I don't think we'll see too much JSA members. Very doubtful but you never know. Aries & Parallax. As much as I love'em I don't think they'll make the cut. Gorilla Grodd, Captain Cold, Cheetah are great choices but there's so much more to choose from. Like Vixen, Black Canary, Zantanna, Black Manta... the list goes on.

Finally, As for Darkseid... I'm quite sure everyone believes his in. It would be a shocker if he's not!
dezdigi - 1/10/2013, 8:42 AM
If we only get three more characters in the initial line-up, I want:
Martian Manhunter
Black Manta
Braniac
SuperDude001 - 1/10/2013, 9:42 AM
They need to add more creative characters even if they're not involved in the story. All we're getting are popular characters with basically the same fighting style, just cause they can fit in the narrative.
What we need is:
Static
Hawkman
Martian Manhunter
Brainiac
Talon (New 52 character)
Toyman
Booster Gold
Dr Fate
Amazo
Gorilla Grodd

Also as alternate costumes (that are other characters):
Hawkgirl (alternate Hawkman)
Terry McGuinness (alternate Batman)
Bizarro (alternate Superman)
John Stewart (alternate GL)
Christian Bale (Batman)
Henry Cavill (Superman)
Ryan Reynolds (GL)
DC4everLantern - 1/10/2013, 9:44 AM
OMG The game becomes better and better. But now they have brought all same characters from MK VS DC over in this game. Bring more rare charcters to the game. Not the Joker again or Lex. They are no fighters. Even not Shazam (to much Superman). How about Black Lightning insteed of Nightwing. Or Hawkman Red Tornado or Plastic Man would be awesome. That game will rock anyway. Besides my favorite charcters are allready in SINESTRO BANE and DEATHSTROKE. How cool is that.
dezdigi - 1/10/2013, 11:39 AM
@superdude,
if you could only have three more, which characters would you choose?
IronHood - 1/10/2013, 11:48 AM
Is That Aquaman fighting Grundy in the pic with Bane, Lex & Bats? I believe so but you can't get a good look at him because it's unfocused & practically out frame, not to mention the picture quality kinda looks like a shot took from a camera phone.

@SuperDude001 I agree with all your alternate character skins & character ideas. Except Talon.

No more Batman family characters. This game is a Justice League game, not a Batman Family related game. Don't know how Nightwing got in but I guess. Red Hood would be ok but he uses guns & Deathstroke's already confirmed so we don't need anymore firearm characters. As every comic fan knows there are sooo many other great characters with better abilities that still aren't confirmed.
IronHood - 1/10/2013, 11:59 AM
Martian Manhunter
Black Canary
Hawkman or Hawkgirl
Vixen
Black Lighting or Static
Zatanna
Red Tornado
Doctor Fate
Plastic Man (Elongated Man alternate skin or vice versa)
Black Manta
Captain Cold or Mirror Master or Gorilla Grodd
Brainiac or Toyman
Darkseid
Clayface or Poison Ivy
Black Adam
Circe
