Injustice: Gods Among Us was a damn fine fighting game and with the announcement that Lobo and Batgirl will be joining the fighting roster; here’s just a few folks we at G3 would love to see in the game.
Starfire & Beast Boy -
We already have Cyborg, Raven and Nightwing (formerly Robin) from the Teen Titans, so why not just put Starfire and Beast Boy in there and have a Cartoon Network Teen Titans reunion? Both characters are fun and versatile (especially Beast Boy being able to shape shift) and they’d definitely be powerhouses to the list.
Technically Martian Manhunter is already in Injustice, but merely as a background character. It seems leaving him on the sidelines is a major misstep since MM has powers comparable to Superman in addition to telepathy, shape shifting and energy projecting which would all mix into some pretty bad-ass combos.
The anti-Superman is downright hilarious with his goofy way of talking and I think it would add some more than welcome comic relief to the game. While more comic book movies and game going the ultra gritty route (much like The Dark Knight trilogy and Man of Steel), it would be nice to see something less gritty and a little more fun. With a character like Bizarro, the game can take itself a little less seriously while still allowing for a multitalented character.
Also, Bizarro #1
Swamp Thing usually gets left out of comic book conversations just because he’s not nearly as prominent as Batman or Superman, but he’s one hell of a character. Losing limbs for him is no big deal since he can re-grow them and he has mastery of all plant life (including alien plants too) in addition to super strength. Plus, Swamp Thing looks weird enough to pique anyone’s interest.
Depending on which Black Canary they put in the game, Black Canary can either be one of the most skilled hand-to-hand fighters around or she could emit high pitched sonic screams that can incapacitate enemies. No offense to the original Canary, but I think having the sonic screams would be way more useful and would therefore be a major boon in executing juggling combos.
