How many more to come?

Posted by FLYmeatwad

Does this mean that leaked list was real? I reckon this means, inevitably, Scorpion will be the last DLC character. Kind of a weaker online pass/character additions if the final two turn out to be who they are expected to be.

That said, Lobo is still a lot of fun to play.

I see her grappling hook connects to the same thing as Spider-man's webs

That is a pretty great super.

Probably two. And according to the leak, which so far happens to be spot-on, they're fucking Zod and MK Scorpion.

Ugh, in a game full of Batman characters, Batgirl seems like a dumb and wholly unnecessary choice.

Edited by AlKusanagi

I don't mind Batgirl, but I'd rather it be Supergirl instead.

Posted by kindone

Can't say I'm excited for Batgirl, but not having her on the list in the first place was a little odd.

Edited by FrostedMiniWheats

Wait... this is super confusing. They begin the trailer with an introduction to Batgirl, which is good and reasonable. I don't know who Batgirl is, I'm not a comics guy. But then they cut to the gameplay and immediately retcon the thing that they JUST TOLD ME. Did she get... unparalyzed? Because last I checked (4 seconds ago) you were telling me that she got shot and was paralyzed. So who's this fighting game character? Is this just pre-paralysis Batgirl? Then how is she getting "payback" for that time Joker shot and paralyzed her?

Am I missing something, or is this pretty dumb

Killing Joke pack, so will that be killing joke joker, hospital outfit batgirl, and oldschool batman outfit?

Yeah, where's Animal Man or Mirror Master or Swamp Thing or... ANYTHING? The character choices for this have been so boring. I would love Jack Knight Starman, or the Shade. Hell, if they have to put in another Batman character, why not Damian Robin or El Gaucho?

@frostedminiwheats : In the recent New 52 continuity, she somehow got unparalyzed. It's really dumb, Barbara was best as Oracle, Stephanie Brown Batgirl 4ever.

Cool super move, dorky costume, but if this game has taught me anything about comic books, it's that DC heroes all look like clowns outside of the movies.

wait is batgirl different than batwoman?

Uh, yeah! Batwoman was on a long hiatus from the 60s to 2000s and then recently got a reboot as an awesome character (also lesbian).

Yea Jokers vacation wear is sick.

Edited by DarkbeatDK

Can't wait for them to add Batwing... That black Batman.

Edited by Animasta

@assinass: I knew that part which is why I knew of batwoman, but I have no idea if they were actually seperate people.

I mean, they don't have batboy do they? I was assuming it was some sort of robin/nightwing thing

(I know very little about comics)

Posted by Epidehl

I gotta say this trailer turned me around on the decision to use Batgirl. I still would have preferred other characters, but she at least looks pretty fun to play and that Super is pretty great. Also the Killing Joke stuff is awesome. I've been reading the JLI stuff from that era and it's weird seeing ads for the Killing Joke in the middle of it.

Also this:

It's really dumb, Barbara was best as Oracle, Stephanie Brown Batgirl 4ever.

Stephanie Brown was the beeeeest and I wish they had skins for the DLC characters to we could get one of her.

@frostedminiwheats: They left out the part where Batgirl gets injected with illegal super-stem cell implants in South America and gets cured of paralysis in the New 52. So yes, the trailer is dumb. None of that backstory has anything to do with Injustice. That isn't even a version of Batgirl that exists in the comics. That isn't pre-paralysis nor New 52. Maybe she's one of the parallel universe characters, which would explain where you could be wearing those murderific blade-knuckles. Not a very Batperson-y thing to bring to a fight. So basically, the backstory they included probably doesn't even apply to the character they're showing off.

Power Girl... I got Lobo... Now Power Girl and im happy.

Edited by Bane122

Couldn't care (this version, at least) but that Killing Joke skin pack should be pretty awesome.

Posted by AngelN7

Is that Ashley from Mass Effect?

Posted by MrMazz

She looks like a BAt themed Ninja from the MK games which could be really fun. Not enough teleports in this game.

I own that first trade. I liked J. H. William III's art more than I liked the story/writing.

Posted by Orange_Pork

That teleport. That crossup 3. That super.

I don't even like Babs but damn, that character is nice lookin'.

fuck that , i never liked batgirl....give me powergirl anyday

Edited by Sauson

There are already 7 Batman characters in Injustice, we really didn't need another.

Posted by Aether

@frostedminiwheats: They do say "In 1988". So unless you think things never change in comics, which would be kind of silly to think even if you don't know anything at all about comics, that is a hell of a long time for a character to stay paralyzed for things that generally don't age. Even the Simpsons and Southpark have had catchphrases come and go.

Edited by Humanity

Gotta say that I'm not loving the character design they use here, the way everyone seems to be wearing padded armor looks really weird. Batgirl especially seems like she's wearing a weird padded suit.

Edited by Pop

Oh, I thought she got paralized and became Oracle.

@pop said:

She's back to the mantle after New 52 was launched. Gail Simone said that Oracle is such an iconic character at this point that she didn't want to revert her disability, but she also said that it's been troubling everyone since she's in a world with cosmic rays and people growing limbs all the fucking time and it's just silly that no one has ever found a cure. New 52 provided a convenient way to do it, since it's a reboot, so it was more plausible to have Kiling Joke happen, have her be Oracle for three years in continuity and then get her cured.

While somewhat disappointed, I'm fine with that, since they found a much more respectful and sensible way to do this stuff than Marvel did with One More Day. "Yeah, not even Doctor fucking Strange can heal Aunt May from a stupid gunshot and the only way to separate Mary Jane and Peter is to force them into a deal with the fucking Devil himself, so they can save an old-ass lady. Because divorces don't exist."

Joker's Killing Joke outfit is great and while I don't really care for Batgirl's costume in this her super was fantastic.

So I went to Wikipedia for new details on Batwoman, whom I've heard of but never really looked into. Turns out her original purpose in 1954, according to Wikipedia, was to stop allegations of Batman being a homosexual character.

And now she's a lesbian.

Posted by NDN_Shadow

@angeln7: Yup, she's voiced by Kimberly Brooks who voiced Ashley in Mass Effect, but also Barbara Gordon / Oracle in Arkham Asylum and Arkham City.

Posted by drumpsycho89

Ok. Batgirl's super is SOOOOOOO FUCKING SUPER!! maybe one of the best?

Edited by RE_Player1

I know people are a little tired of Batman characters but I would love for Jason Todd, the Red Hood, to be dlc.

Don't forget the part where they explicitly say 25 years ago and she hasn't aged a day. I thought they typically tried to downplay explicit chronology like that.

Posted by ildon

@frostedminiwheats: It's a comic book. Batman and Superman have both "died" and came back in that same 25 year time span. The reason they called back to The Killing Joke was because of the new Joker costume in the same commercial. They're trying to get some nerd cred and it also lets them set up some kind of "backstory" for the fight in the ad.

Is it just me, or does the animation framerate in this trailer seem a lot higher than in the actual game?

Posted by MideonNViscera

This seems like a good place to say I have the deluxe hardcover of The Killing Joke.

Edited by Sergotron

I really hope they don't use Scorpion. That just seems like a waste of a character slot. We can play Scorpion any other time in that last MK game just fine.

Kimberly Brooks (who voices Ashley) also voices Oracle/Barbara Gordon in the Arkham games, and it definitely sounds like her here too. Good move on their part.

Edited by hermes

That backstory left a bittersweet taste in my mouth. It was all about: "remember the time when Batgirl had a lot of character development and grew up of the gimmick of being a girl Batman? Well... we are forgetting all that because we want her to fight back."

Not that it was Netherrealm fault, I know the new 52 introduced that cop-out; but I don't like to be reminded of it, which leads me to the second point: another Batman character? Really? One third of the roster dedicated to that setting wasn't enough?

Netherrealm are lucky their games look great once you start playing, because the faces on the models are garbage.
