The lights are on
"Another Bat character?" The echo of that sentiment rippled across the internet when the latest Injustice DLC character was confirmed last week.
Our own commenters shared disappointment and frustration at Batgirl's inclusion. Hopefully the video below puts that to rest. Barbara Gordon is clearly not a clone of the Dark Knight. Her inclusion reintroduces teleportation by way of smoke bombs, and a number of stun moves that root opponents in place.
It also looks like she'll be bringing along the Joker's iconic vacation wear from The Killing Joke. Fans will recall that the clown was wearing the Hawaiian shirt and shorts when he put a bullet through Barbara, rendering her paralyzed from the waist down. No date has been confirmed for her arrival, but Season Pass holders and those that prefer the a la carte option can now get Lobo, the first additional character.

Wow, Batgirl looks wicked. On another topic, I wonder if we'll see this weeks live stream today. That is if there even is one this week.
While I wasn't too thrilled on Batgirl being part of the dlc ( which I thought should have been in the main roster OR in a second batch of dlc ) gotta admit that they mostly pulled her off well enough for me to consider her. I like that she uses a few more gadgets then Batman himself, who only seems to use the Batclaw and Batarangs. So far she seems to be done pretty well, though her super is a tad ridiculous but I can dig it a lil more then some others in the game hahah. On another note, that Joker costume looks awesome!
Still not liking the prospect of Zod and Scorpion being the final two. Scorpion doesn't belong and Zod is too boring & generic for me :/ If the last two characters ended up being two other more worthy characters, lets say Darkseid & Starfire or Zatanna & Etrigan then I'd have bought the season pass. joke/guest characters shouldn't take the spot of dlc and should be in the main game ( even if to my disdain they are in the game) or as simple unlockable/secrets.
Okay, that looks boss.
Less Clones in a fighting game for the win!
I was pretty skeptical of her when she was leaked last week but after seeing her gameplay she looks awesome to use. I'll wait to see what people say about her and then decide if I should buy the season pass.
Ugh. Why have Ashley Williams voice Batgirl? I don't want to be feeling like at any minute, Barbara's going to start spouting idiotic jokes and xenophobic statements.
I was one of the many who complained about batgirl now I am speechless.........
Okay, so now we need another female villain, and a male hero just to even it out. All for equal opportunity over here..lol. Hmm, Circe or Cheetah would work for the villain, seeing as how Wonder Woman only has Ares in there for her. And for male hero, throw in MARTIAN MANHUNTER (come on, NetherRealm!!), Black Lightning, or Red Tornado. Too many to choose from..lol.
I really need to get this game soon! I just have tons of other games I need to finish before I can get it........
Cool. I need to get this game eventually. The demo was pretty fun.
Another character from the Bat universe? Are they going to retitle the game BATMAN & FRIENDS?
Ed Boon just posted a survey on his twitter account (@noobde) about who you'd want to see as future DLC. I'm on my phone so I don't have the link.
I hate to say it, but I'm not convinced. I'm not going to be satisfied unless they put Martian Manhunter in the game.
