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!

Why is that image of Shazam flipped?
Dynamo - 2/7/2013, 12:40 PM
Did they just use the Arkham designs?
KaneVonDoom - 2/7/2013, 12:41 PM
Didn't expect to see Croc or Riddler in this one but this is definitely interesting. Hope to see more characters and villains outside of Batman's archives as well.
nailbiter111 - 2/7/2013, 12:45 PM
u just blew my mind
SuperDude001 - 2/7/2013, 12:45 PM
Didn't expect the use of the Arkham desgins, that's kinda cool, although I dislike so many Batman villains.
Did he tweet a message with it? Maybe it's a good manip (unlikely yeah, just I'm very surprised by the Arkham design, and that Riddler and Penguin are in the background).
DrDoom - 2/7/2013, 12:48 PM
Killer Croc? Arkham design? Sweet!
ArtisticErotic - 2/7/2013, 12:56 PM
Too many Batman characters.
SageMode - 2/7/2013, 12:58 PM
This game character selection is very Batman-centric. Batman, Nightwing, Catwoman, Harley Quinn, Joker, Bane, Killer Croc, Riddler, and Penguin. Smh.

Where are all the people posting Gumba images now? I can't see how Flash could run with all that shit strapped onto him. His uniform need to be WAY more streamlined.

@Froggy,
I hope KC is for sure. The other two, hopefully not.
Rhino4508 - 2/7/2013, 1:16 PM
@SageMode

I think it's basically Batman's crew vs Superman's crew... So think Justice League vs Batman lol. So yeah there will more than likely be a lot of BatCrew in this game, But also Superman, Flash, Shazam, WW, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Lex Luthor, and I am sure more will be released soon. Plus the BatCrew could also be a DLC for later on. Notice the Arkham theme? Could mean that it's an Arkham Asylum DLC for the game along with maybe additional skins for characters already in game like Harley Joker, Bats, and Nightwing. Just a thought.

Woah! he looks just like he did in the ARKHAM GAMES
Deadpool17 - 2/7/2013, 1:24 PM
It looks a little fake. I could be and want to be wrong.
thewolfx - 2/7/2013, 1:30 PM
Oh boy , more batman villians ... Lame
Rhino4508 - 2/7/2013, 1:34 PM
@thewolfx

Croc could offer some pretty sick attacks.
Darthzilla - 2/7/2013, 1:34 PM
Odds are, this is just a cutscene. But the only one that looks remotely playable is Killer Croc. So Riddler and Penguin probably aren't in the roster.
DC4everLantern - 2/7/2013, 1:35 PM
Too many Batman Characters. Still exited for this Game.
Jollem - 2/7/2013, 1:35 PM
yeah, this game should be made by marvel studios and have robert downey junior in it
CavEl - 2/7/2013, 1:35 PM
Soooo...this is Batman, Bat-Rouges and everyone else?
Yeah...-_-

F THIS GAME...
Tony93 - 2/7/2013, 1:40 PM
Doomsday is confirmed? is there a pic of him somewhere?
Paragon79 - 2/7/2013, 1:40 PM
I was hoping for a game with kinda like Marvel Rise of the Imperfects versus mode. That was badass. This is just Mortal Kombat with DC characters.
Christuffer - 2/7/2013, 1:44 PM
For a second, I thought The Riddler was gonna be a playable character. I was about to call my permanent character choice lol
Triptheorist - 2/7/2013, 1:49 PM
I still want to see Martian Manhunter, Grodd, Darkseid, Static Shock, Braniac... And yes, Aquaman. That roster is looking a little bat-centric.
CavEl - 2/7/2013, 1:50 PM
@ Steve - Well, I'm not a goddamn Batman fan and I'm not wasting my goddamn money of a game that makes Superman look like the bad guy while I play as Batman to defeat this alien menace who has overtaken Earth because he doesn't understand our Earthly ways...

This is, essentially, The Dark Knight Returns...game version! [frick] IT!!!
Jollem - 2/7/2013, 1:54 PM
yes, somehow...nolan is to blame. i'm sure of it
SageMode - 2/7/2013, 1:54 PM
LEVITKUTZ

You are the most sensitive DC Fanboy I've ever seen. I'm just pointing out the obvious. Quit the whining.
Beside the Arkham Games, what does DC have? Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe? GTFO.
Do your history, Marvel has more critically acclaimed games than DC does.

STEVEROGERSON

Unfortunately. Lol
CPIXLEY - 2/7/2013, 1:57 PM
I want Booster Gold!
THEDARKKNIGHT1939 - 2/7/2013, 1:58 PM
Hope these aren't the official skins for the characters.
MisterMagurlypse - 2/7/2013, 2:01 PM
Croc would be pretty cool in a fighting game. But, Penquin on the other hand, would be insane! Think about it...he's got all those lethal umbrellas, he's got an army of little penguins that can attack and he could have a mean Johnny Cageish nad uppercut. BRING IT!!
Jollem - 2/7/2013, 2:03 PM
@Steven - good to see you're behaving :)
Paragon79 - 2/7/2013, 2:04 PM
If a friend of mine buys it, I'll try it, but since the movie rental place in my town closed, renting games has become tricky. I'm more excited about Colonial Marines.
SuperSomething616 - 2/7/2013, 2:16 PM
Yup Arkham design it is then...
Paragon79 - 2/7/2013, 2:17 PM
Which part?
BANEofExistence - 2/7/2013, 2:25 PM
Y would they use the Arkham verse character models for The Riddler, Killer Croc and The Penguin, but not the Joker, Harley Quinnn, Solomon Grundy, Batman, Bane, Catwoman,Nightwing... Im sensing cheap photoshop or jist background characters that the didnt want to full deaign bew characters for...
TheCaptain - 2/7/2013, 2:47 PM
I guess this game looks pretty fun. I just don't like everybody's bulky body armor. I think the pic is either photoshopped or alt skins.
Paragon79 - 2/7/2013, 2:52 PM
Steve; Yeah, I'm told it's like left 4 dead in the Alien universe. I'm excited for it.
ToddDamian - 2/7/2013, 2:52 PM
Gotham City Impostors was BADASS. I loved the [frick] out of that game.

Croc's Arkham design fits in with the Injustice vibe.
Woodinator - 2/7/2013, 2:55 PM
I'm calling BS... it looks like a manip done using the Arkham City characters and the Flash... the level even looks like one of the hallways in Arkham Asylum
ComicFan509 - 2/7/2013, 3:42 PM
I don't think this confirms them being in game. More than likely just a joke picture.
MutantEquality - 2/7/2013, 3:49 PM
GET THE PS3 VERSION!!!

Because I only have a PS3 and I want to play some of you guys. It'll be fun.
