Superman sure does look odd with a the Soviet Union's hammer and sickle on his chest. Truth, Justice, and the American way get pushed aside for Communism. In 2003, Mark Millar ("Kick-Ass") dreamt up an alternate reality for Superman in which his Kryptonian spaceship landed in the Ukraine instead of Kansas. The three-issue comic book mini-series was nominated for the 2004 Eisner Award for best limited series.

Now, the fighting game, Injustice Gods Among Us, will include a special Red Son Pack based on that comic book mini-series. In order to receive the pack you'll have to pre-order the game at Gamestop or EB Games. The pack will include Red Son skins for Superman, Wonder Woman, and Solomon Grundy. There will also be 20 additional missions that will allow you to explore the Red Son storyline.





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! Release Date: April 16th!

Old news. But cool nonetheless

The article is not about news, it's about the footage.

Meh, still a bargain bin buy for me. I'm not spending $60 on a fighting game, not after MvC3, never again.
MrDonut - 1/17/2013, 11:59 PM
I though this was just a fighting game like Street Fighter or Mortal Kombat, is there gonna b playable story missions too or...?
GLprime2814 - 1/18/2013, 12:06 AM
I would love some c lister DLC packs. Like rocket red, firestorm, or have some golden age skins to.

@nailbiter111 - My bad. I just realized that.

"There will also be 20 additional missions that will allow you to explore the Red Son storyline." This makes me feel happy in my special nerd-place...

Would be cool if Robin was in it and then you let Joker beat the shit out of you
hobohaymaker13 - 1/18/2013, 12:46 AM
Hey, saw Supe's punch up Joker at the end, can't wait for the game. Good thing i pre-ordered this at Gamestop.
mgeoff88 - 1/18/2013, 1:30 AM
Wow, that's pretty cool.

@TheGambitFreak Same here! That game was such a waste of money. No spectator mode during online matches was a rip-off! That's the standard feature in modern fighting games.

@Froggy This game will have an actual story mode? Hell Yeah! That's awesome!

Oh those Russians...
Yogath - 1/18/2013, 2:51 AM
A Red Son pack and you omit Russian Batman and his hat?

@Yogath

Here, here.

i know they will release a "game of the year" or maybe a "injustice league" edition. i'll wait for that.

i wish i have ps3
TheAstoundingMan - 1/18/2013, 5:10 AM
Really? I thought MvC3 was a rather decent, fun fighting game. It was the fact that it was made by Capcom that ultimately let it down.
jessepostal - 1/18/2013, 5:19 AM
Dont get all ancy in the pantsy boys, story mode is just cut scenes that lead up to every match.
locuaz - 1/18/2013, 5:26 AM
It has been released the first number of the digital comic Injustice - Gods Among Us 001 (2013).
subzero1077 - 1/18/2013, 5:49 AM
DAMMIT, i just pre-ordered it at Best Buy yesterday. I friggen hate GameStop anyway.
marvel72 - 1/18/2013, 6:26 AM
i like the red son superman design but i don't think this game has enough going for it for me to pay £40 for it.
ComicBookGoth - 1/18/2013, 6:28 AM
in Soviet Russia, Man Super You!
Doppelganger - 1/18/2013, 6:30 AM
Oh why wouldn't the mortal kombat team have the marvel license and not DC!!
I hate capcom fighting games so much!!!
Really looking forward to this game but I can care less of every character other then batman!
Jollem - 1/18/2013, 6:51 AM
got this pre-ordered
GuardianAngel - 1/18/2013, 6:54 AM
Is this the only pre order bonus so far or have they been announced for other stores?
DrNomid - 1/18/2013, 8:15 AM
At least you are able to buy it. In Russia there is now way we can buy and play as Red Son. It's a great comic book with very deep story. But we don't have GameStop here :(
JohnnyKrypton - 1/18/2013, 9:25 AM
Swell. Can we have the classic outfits please, or is DC too intent on jamming their New52 looks down our throats to acknowledge the original characters?
JacksonVegaIII - 1/18/2013, 9:41 AM
fighting games... jesus grow the up
lucio7lopez - 1/18/2013, 11:40 AM
Fighting games... Hell Yeah =)
ComradeGrey - 1/18/2013, 11:53 AM
This might convince me to actually pre-order something for once, I love Red Son

DC Animated NEEDS to adapt that book STAT.
MisterMagurlypse - 1/18/2013, 12:03 PM
Does anyone know if there are any other per-order deals out yet? If not I'm sure they'll be some others. I want to wait to preorder till I see all the deals. But this is pretty cool.
Darthzilla - 1/18/2013, 2:24 PM
@JohnnyKrypton
