VIDEO GAMES: Gods Among Us: 5 characters who should be playable

I give 5 characters I feel should be in the game as playable fighters.

I am a fan of fighting games, it's my genre. Particularly the Mortal Kombat franchise as many of you are aware of so, when I heard that NetherRealm Studios is making a DC fighting game, I got excited. While, I am not a DC fan and not a fan of anything they have done as far as comics and shows go, I do respect them. I didn't think I'd be happier when the two most obvious heroes were announced, my two DC favorites: The Flash and Batman. But then, I got to thinking. Who should be in the next game? The lines of good and evil are blurred, the best example being Superman and The Joker has an intregal part in the story. Here is the first guy I thought of and I do think he should be in the game, playable.

While I never heard of the character before coming to this site and didn't respect him at first because he was DC, I got curious and looked him up and watched different scenes on youtube from Batman: Under the Red Hood and I was sold. Red Hood is a badass and a great character, he would fit perfectly into Injustice Gods Among Us. Don't ya agree?

Now, I promised you 5 characters and the other four are coming but, not all of them obviously should be in the story. Here they are, the other 4 characters who should be playable in Injustice Gods Among Us.


He's the badass of the corps. Not to mention Green Lantern is already in the game, why not add Sinestro? Sinestro is a equal to Green Lantern more less. The gameplay would be similar to Green Lantern but, obviously Sinestro would have more aggresive moves.

Captain Cold

We have enough Batman characters, don't ya think? Get a Lantern or two have a rouges gallery or more for other characters too. More than likely, two at most. So, with The Flash, I would like to see the New 52 version of my favorite Flash villain. Captain Cold. He could be the Sub-Zero for Injustice as far as the types of moves he does go. Cause lets face it, the version(s) before the New 52 sucked and were not threatening.


Deathsroke should be an obvious as far as who should be in the game. He (like Red Hood) is practically fitted and perfect to be in the game. It's not brainer for me. Plus story wise, I'm sure he can fit in somewhere. Deathstroke is probably one of my favorite characters and while he is a deadly one at that, I always found him to be one of the better and more fun characters in the DC Universe.


He's probably the most brutal and badass character on this list. His way of thinking and the way he defeats his enemies, not to mention his choice of weaponry qualifies him to be in the game. Not to mention he deserves a little bit of love too, not just Aquaman. Not many people here like him from what I have seen but, I think Lobo is another perfect canidate for the game.

That's my list, what is yours? Comment below and be respectful as always.

WildCat (it is a fighting game, why the heck leave him out of all people)
Black Canary

Black Manta
And i think golden age costumes should be unlockable.

Good list, Nick. I would love to see some of the Flash's Rogues in the game. Captain Cold, Mirror Master, and Zoom would make my day. I also think Black Adam and Hawkman would make great additions to the cast of characters.
Marxman12 - 11/27/2012, 1:08 PM
I'm hoping that they will add characters as DLC based upon demand and such. I am really liking everyone's choices. I hope these characters can get added in to the game.

Playing those characters would've been beyond awesome!!!
DrDoom - 11/27/2012, 2:15 PM
Deathstroke, Clayface, Circe, Aquaman, Black Manta and Doctor Fate.

(I know there's six, sue me)
dezdigi - 11/27/2012, 2:34 PM
If I could only name five:
Martian Manhunter
Black Manta
EdgyOutsider - 11/27/2012, 2:41 PM
I just asked for a list lol I never gave a restriction. I was just only naming 5.
DrDoom - 11/27/2012, 2:45 PM

Ok cool.
Cuz Doctor Fate has got to be there. Dude [frick]ing rules.

calin88 - 11/27/2012, 3:32 PM
I think we can expect these 5 and a lot more to be shown until the game comes out, but yeah, I would love to kick some ass with The Main Man
superherofan21 - 11/27/2012, 4:27 PM
Killer Croc
Scarecrow (a little different, but special moves could be cool)
Mirror Master
Ra's al Ghul

So you didn't know who Jason Todd was. Had no respect for a character you never heard of before cause he belonged to DC. Then a few animated clips of a DTV movie sold you on him being purely badass?

Yeah...seems like you did your homework.

You know whats funny? As I was clicking on this article, as it was loading I was think "Jason Todd should be in this game! Bet he's not on the list though..." LOL I was wrong! Thank you so much for putting him! Deathstroke is now in the game btw. I bet Lobo, Sinestro, or Cpt. Cold is added in too. It would make sense, still hoping for Jason Todd too!
