Injustice 2 Update Provides Hint at Upcoming DLC
As the full roster of characters for Injustice 2 became known, players wondered who would join the ranks as downloadable characters. If you pre-ordered the ultimate edition, you gain access to 9 additional characters as they become available. The first three have been announced as Red Hood (who is available now), Starfire, and Sub-Zero.
So who are the other 6?
A recent update to the character selection screen in preparation for Red Hood (between Batman and Superman) has provided players with a hint at who will come later. It’s not much to go off of, but we got ourselves some silhouettes.
On the left: Immediately recognizable is Black Manta to the left of Supergirl. The Aquaman villain can be spotted in the game when you trigger a stage transition in Atlantis. The silhouette to the far top left looks like it could be a character that has a hood. One such character is Azrael, a villain turned hero from Batman comics. Another possibility is that Shazam is coming back to life. Next to him is the potential spot for Sub-Zero. The final silhouette on the left is a woman with at least shoulder-length hair. If you look really close, you can see the tops of a headpiece. There are two potential characters, Mera and Enchantress. I don’t know if they would introduce Mera when they have Aquaman and Black Manta, but there is a lot of representation from other series so maybe she will. Enchantress became more known due to her inclusion in Suicide Squad so maybe we’ll get another magic-based player.
On the right: If Sub-Zero occupies the closer-in top spot, then Starfire will mirror that on the right. Next to her can only be one person, Atom. Who else would get such a tiny image for their character? To the right of Braniac could be the second Mortal Combat crossover of the game: Raiden. The hat makes it a little obvious, but they could always be messing with us. And lastly, we have a silhouette that looks to be a character that wears some sort of collared apparel. Possibly a trench coat? Another character that makes an appearance during the game is John Constantine, who appears in Doctor Fate’s ending after completing one of the battle simulators. Since Black Manta was already built in, maybe Constantine was too.
Who do you think the other 6 downloadable characters are?
