ShockList: Injustice: Gods Among Us Wishlist: Part 1

on March 22, 2013 2:19 PM


There has been a ton of Injustice: Gods Among Us news lately, and all of this buzz is getting both the gaming fan and comic fan inside me excited. What characters will be revealed next? Who deserves a chance at the spotlight?

With the New 52 directing its focus on re-establishing age-old characters and reintroducing old concepts, Injustice seems to be taking the same idea with its distinct take on a DC Comics dystopia, where Superman has turned tyrant, and where Batman’s rebels have risen up against him.

But one unsettling trend that I’ve noticed so far is that there is a huge imbalance between DC Universe characters, and Batman-specific characters. Seriously, could there be anymore Bat-family characters in this game? The latest reveals have suggested a more diverse line-up, thankfully, but I want more. So this fan took it upon himself to suggest some characters that shouldn’t be missed when Injustice: Gods Among Us hits shelves in April, as either on-disc characters or DLC.

Below you’ll find a variety of characters, with their backgrounds detailed, an imagined Injustice backstory for them, how NetherRealm Studios should approach implementing them into the game using Mortal Kombat (2011) and MK vs DC as a template, other characters who could take their place, and how likely they are to appear.
