So the Injustice: Gods Among Us release is closer than The Flash on the tale of a super villain. So before we let that event pass us in a Flash it’s time for a list of characters that I think should be in the game or be considered for DLC.
Doctor Fate: Doctor Fate is the embodiment of an ancient magician called Nabu who resides inside a helmet. Imagine Green Lantern mixed with Harry Potter. Fate could make a good character or special move with a character donning the helmet and unleashing an epic finished attack.
Mr Freeze: Just imagine the quips and dialogue the Mortal Kombat guy could do with this character? Just forget the Batman and Robin film and you’ll find a calculating sadistic villain who is just as compelling as Joker but perhaps a little stiff with jokes. His move set could be a tech based Sub-zero but just a whole lot more sadistic.
Beast boy: OK I admit the Teen Titans characters are not as well fleshed as they could be, but the team have a solid set of powers. Beast Boy can turn into any animal. Judging by the special move footage of characters like The Flash running around the planet and Superman special move of punching people into the atmosphere. A little interesting side note that doesn’t apply to animals just on Earth.
Arsenal: The grown up sidekick of Green Arrow who appears to play some key part in the story. Roy Harper was formally a master of Moo Gi, a martial art which makes you a master of turning any object into a weapon. This would work greatly since game demonstrations have shown how interactive the environment is. Also in case things go wrong Roy’s a master of creating a variety of trick arrows.
Captain Boomerang: One of the villains of The Flash and one that just keeps coming back. Digger Harkness was once the spokesperson for a Boomerang company but decided he preferred a life of crime. Boomerangs are useful weapon in a fighting game. Long range attacks could help set of big attacks and prevent your enemies from getting closer.
So there you have it, a few characters I think should be in Injustice: Gods Among Us, or should at least appear in some form of DLC anyway! Injustice: Gods Among Us is scheduled for release for Playstation 3, Xbox 360 and WiiU on the 19th of April.
