One of the most attention worthy games of late is undoubtedly ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’. It’s like the ultimate fighting game where we, as fans, get the opportunity to jump into the DC universe and have Flash punch Superman right in the nuts. Sure, we’ve seen comic book crossover fighters but this is all that superhero-y goodness where our favorite characters play both the heroes and the villains. MK vs DCU was a good start, and was definitely the foundation for this dark DC masterpiece without question.
With so many characters to pick from, how do you decide who to put on the roster and who to leave out? Arcade style fighting games tend to have pretty large player rosters and, from what I could see in the 15 minute gameplay video from EVO 2012, there will be at least 24 available characters. The original 6 characters that have been portrayed right from the get go are: Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Solomon Grundy and Harley Quinn. Counting the 2 new characters that have just been revealed, Nightwing and Cyborg, we now have 8 playable characters and they all look pretty badass.
Who else should enter the ring? There’s a massive universe at our disposal here so here’s my picks for 10 Characters We Need to See in Injustice: Gods Among Us.
