A new Injustice: Gods Among Us trailer features the "Red Son" DLC pack. Which is available to customers that pre-order at EB Games or GameStop. The additional skins and missions are inspired by Mark Millar's Superman: Red Son comic book mini-series.

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. For residents of the UK that offer also applies to 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.

Low-Res "Red Son" Gameplay Footage

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!

This is the only pre-order bonus I have seen so far that has extra missions. However, I wish they would have included Red Son Batman instead of Grundy.

@Levi I passed on Gears. I choose Bioshock Infinite over it.

Wonder what other goodies will be released for it.

Game looks decent but if it plays like Mortal Kombat I'll pass on this one. I think I'll wait until I've played it first and them decide besides, some of the suits are awful and the DLC is probably not going to be free to download.l

Crap, my grammar sucks when I'm on my phone.

This is great but it still won't be enough to get it GOTY.

Red Son skin for Grundy? He wasn't even in that story. They should have done a Red Son Batman and Green Lantern (even though Hal Jordan was fighting for the US in Red Son, but still).

I wish Super girl was in this game. It would be awesome because she actually existed in the superman red son universe.
ComicFan1134 - 2/27/2013, 2:07 PM
I Agree, When Did Solomon Grundy Go To Russia?
AshleyWilliams - 2/27/2013, 2:18 PM
No Batman skin?
MisterBabadook - 2/27/2013, 2:32 PM
Red son/terrorist Batman is cool, too bad he doesn't have a skin
MJPETTY7 - 2/27/2013, 2:54 PM
That is awesome...

Red Son Supes looks pretty good.
JatevinM - 2/27/2013, 4:20 PM
I preordered from Gamestop.

The prequel comics to this are pretty sick.
ahhmynuts - 2/27/2013, 4:41 PM
havent purchased a superhero video game since superman returns. ill def be getting this one.
CorndogBurglar - 2/27/2013, 5:41 PM
Considering that Gamestop is the only pre order that comes with 20 extra missions, i'll be getting that one.

I believe Walmart is the Arkham Asylum pack, and it comes with a free copy of MK vs DCU, plus Arkham Asylum skins.

I cant remember where the other pre order bonus is from but it comes with the Blackest Night skins and Zombie Mode...whatever that is.

20 extra campaign missions of one of DC's best stories of all time is enough to win me over though. I already have my Red Son pre order paid for. I cant wait for this game.

Tho i haven't read red son, Isn't supermans suit meant to be from Krypton? it just happens to be the exact same as USSR? can anyone explain..
CorndogBurglar - 2/27/2013, 8:07 PM
Before New 52 his suit wasnt from Krypton. This story came out years before New 52 was just a horrible thought in someone's head.

Im not the biggest Superman fan in the world, but I dont believe his suit was from Krypton before New 52. The S symbol was the Kryptonian symbol for HOPE and also the EL family crest, but the suit itself wasn't from Krypton. If Commies found him it isnt hard to believe that they would replace the S symbol with the Hammer and Sickle on a costume.

If I liked fighting games I would be all over this. But, they bore me. The story looks great on it though. As far as fighting games go it looks really good
NoJobBOB - 2/27/2013, 11:08 PM
I want this game. Too bad Im the only person I know without a video game system. :I
Jefferys - 2/28/2013, 1:54 AM
I would have thought that if they included RS Green Lantern within the game, it would have made for an interesting finale boss for the 20 mission set. Plus the suit would have included a new model, which is always great to see in DLC Pre-order packs.
