Lex Luthor & Bane Revealed As Playable Characters In INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US

Lex Luthor & Bane Revealed As Playable Characters In INJUSTICE: GODS AMONG US

Hit the jump to check out a couple new images of Bane and Lex Luthor from the Injustice: Gods Among Us video game. Also, find out a few details about these character's special attributes in the game.

BANE - 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.

LEX LUTHOR - 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 heavily on gadget-based attacks, and can launc missiliees and suck foes towards him. His special trait is a shield that can be powered up by holding a button.


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!

JDUKE25 - 1/7/2013, 5:36 PM
Cool to see them in it, but I hate all of those tubes on Bane. Looks like a garden hose is attacking him.

NateHawk89 - 1/7/2013, 5:53 PM

Hellsboy - 1/7/2013, 5:58 PM
bane is so easy to beat in his current form without the venom he becomes small but origanaly he was just as big and not as strong but still a hulking guy
Cut tubes+kick to the face = done they even do it in justice leauge doom
EtriganTheDemon - 1/7/2013, 5:59 PM

Jollem - 1/7/2013, 6:00 PM

AshleyWilliams - 1/7/2013, 6:04 PM

But honestly I don't really care about Lex, just Bane.
thewolfx - 1/7/2013, 6:04 PM

johnblake - 1/7/2013, 6:14 PM
"He's a skilled mixed martial artist" didnt know Deathstroke was in the UFC. He must really be anderson silva!
IronHood - 1/7/2013, 6:15 PM
Nice! Aquaman & Martian Manhunter next!

DrDoom - 1/7/2013, 6:38 PM

PsyGuy - 1/7/2013, 6:42 PM
Noooo bring on more heroes!
Rhino4508 - 1/7/2013, 6:47 PM
And here we have it folks, SteamPunk Bane!
DoctorDoak - 1/7/2013, 6:55 PM
Bruno as Lex Luthor... Why didn't I think of that?! Best LL casting suggestion ever! WB, PLEASE MAKE IT HAPPEN!!!
DEATHbyEXILE - 1/7/2013, 7:01 PM
Rhino4508 - 1/7/2013, 7:06 PM

I doubt it. Bane's pretty much worthless these days. Also, Batman kicked Grundy out a building and 3 Blocks down the road in the preview so i think he can handle Bane lol.
Spidey91 - 1/7/2013, 7:07 PM
well,we now know who's gonna play Lex in the rebooted universe :P
unknownfacts - 1/7/2013, 7:24 PM
So all that's left to show is Green Lantern(full body),Sinstro,and Gorilla Grodd and gameplay footage of Bane and Luthor.
novaprime - 1/7/2013, 7:50 PM

SuperSpiderMan5778 - 1/7/2013, 9:26 PM
you can tell this iteration of bane wasn't nolanized b/c he's not the same size as batman and doesn't have robot panties on his face
GLprime2814 - 1/7/2013, 9:33 PM
If lex Luther was a joker type villain I think Bruce Willis would be ideal.
Jollem - 1/7/2013, 10:06 PM
hal jordan should have multiple skins as the other lanterns
MisterBabadook - 1/7/2013, 10:15 PM
Bane looks dumb, why not a Knightfall look with TDKR vest?
Jollem - 1/7/2013, 10:19 PM
^it fits with the whole thick, chunky, bulky armored look
MrDonut - 1/7/2013, 11:27 PM
Holy Achille's heel Batman! Bane's tubes are too exposed; I get realism is hardly a factor here but it looks dumb like that...
SageMode - 1/7/2013, 11:45 PM
I really hope Bane has other costumes.
GetsugaTensho22 - 1/7/2013, 11:55 PM
Bane looks horrible. Did they base him off Joel Schumacher's Batman and Robin?!?!
tripttwe - 1/7/2013, 11:57 PM
I think Willis is ideal regardless. I'd LOVE to see a solid story with him as Lex...
TheScarletSpider - 1/7/2013, 11:59 PM
i hope Ras al ghul or Zod become playable characters as well
tripttwe - 1/7/2013, 11:59 PM
Upon 2nd gaze that Lex looks more like the guy playing Zod (Michael Shannon) to me. I'd still like to see Willis as Lex...
mgeoff88 - 1/8/2013, 12:49 AM
LOL! Lex Luthor does like Bruce Willis!

I guess he's going to be saying "Yippie-kay-yay, mother[frick]er" when he shoots explosive projectiles.

And when he puts on his power suit he'll quip, "Now I know what a TV dinner feels like."
