I like the name. The implication of Superheroes being modern Gods that are accessible to the modern person is a cool perspective.

And it's a pretty accurate description with DC. The only DC character more godly than the ones in the game is Dr. Manhattan.

They should put Dr. Manhattan in this game...

I actually like the original name quite a lot. Though I have no idea how it translates to the overall game as I dont have it yet, but its a cool name.

Just "Gods Among Us" would have been good.

Batman Vs. Superman.

I was gonna say Batman vs Deathstroke. That was my guess as the most common two characters used online. Did it turn out to be true? haha

God Damn Batman:The Game

Seriously, I love the name Injustice. This is obviously a bit of an Elseworlds kind of tale, as opposed to DC vs MK which could actually be considered canon if they wanted to. Gotham by Gaslight wouldn't have been better if it had been called Batman Vs Jack the Ripper. I like vague names. More to the point, I like evocative names. Injustice: Gods Among Us doesn't sound like a fighting game. It doesn't evoke any specific genre at all. When people that don't know what it is see the case, they'll likely be intrigued. It's a name that has a better chance of hooking in casual gaming fans, because they won't know right away that it's a fighting game. They might read the box and get hooked into the concept, even if they aren't fighter fans. Giving it a name like DC vs MK had would make it sound like it's a fighting game and nothing more, when it seems like they actually have a story to tell in this one, so I like the fact that they went with a title that makes you wonder what the game is about.

<p>I think the name is fine. The tone of the game as it is, I'm willing to bet DC didn't want something immediately recognizable anyway.</p>

"Injustice" is fine but the subtitle is not great.

Just because Watchman was published by DC doesn't mean those characters are part of the DC Universe, which they are not.

#67 Edited by MariachiMacabre (7099 posts) -

@ll_exile_ll: I'm on mobile so I can't reply directly but I think you missed that that was a joke. And the Watchmen heroes were all originally going to be established DC heroes (for instance Dr. Manhattan was going to be Captain Atom who has the exact same origin) before DC got nervous it would ruin those heroes. I understand that they're not part of the DC Universe but they're still DC-published characters based almost entirely on actual DC Universe characters.

"Batman and Superman fight it out together with some other people you might have heard of or seen in a recent movie"

Injustice League. I think someone already said it, but that is the perfect name for it. It's not hitting you over the head with the DC connection while still connecting the dots for slow people. I don't mind the title as it is, but I have to imagine that some people out there will have no idea that this is a DC Fighting Game.

How does that tell me its about superman vs batman? I'm not into DC but I like seeing batman and superman fight. So anything that is like something from the comics I wouldn't know.

JLA: Justice Lords

Justice Lords was the name of the corrupt Justice League from the animated series A Better World that the plot of this game very closely mirrors.

Justice League was a cartoon for a decade, if you like Batman and Superman you should know what that is, and the name would make sense.

Yeah, Justice League is a very well known group in the DC Universe. The only problem is the Injustice League is also a thing and could confuse DC fans into thinking it centers around that group.

I think the "Gods Among Us" part is what really makes me scratch my head. Injustice is a great title. If it were called DC Heroes: Injustice, DC: Injustice, or DC comics: Injustice (or even fuckin' "DC fighting game") it would make more sense. Personally, I don't really care, but I hope sales aren't horrible due to a head-scratching title.

Injustice is a fine name, and the box art is fine, too.
