The lights are on
We expect that this news is going to polarize the Injustice: Gods Among Us fan base. The latest DLC character has been announced, and he's awfully familiar, even though he's had a makeover.
Mortal Kombat's Scorpion is the third of four characters that season pass holders will have access to. The new trailer below offers a look at his new costume, designed by DC co-publisher Jim Lee. We also get to see Black Lantern Superman and a quick tease at the end of Martian Manhunter.
No release date is included with the trailer or the press release that accompanied it. For those that didn't opt in for the season pass, Scorpion will be available for $5 on PlayStation Network and 400 Microsoft points on Xbox Live.
When we spoke with Ed Boon, he hinted that there might be more characters released beyond the four included with the season pass. Many were expecting that the pre-purchased content would exclusively delve deeper into DC's enormous back catalog, especially since fans have expressed interest in more obscure characters like Swamp Thing and Static Shock. If you purchased the season pass, how do you feel about a familiar non-DC face joining the cast?

I really like his new design, I want a new Mortal Kombat with these kind of designs.
I'd be quite annoyed if I bought the season pass for something I've played with before now.
It would've made much more sense to offer Scorpion as regular DLC not included in the Season Pass.
oh you're kidding me. I bought the season pass for DC characters, not Mortal Kombat :/
Why bother? He's already been in MK, they should've provided someone new to separate the two franchises. Laziness.
Scorpion: Thinking With Portals.
Eh... I don't like his new design. I would probably still buy this if I had Injustice, though.
DC Comics has a huge roster of characters to choose from and they choose Scorpion? Very disappointing.
While I am a bit disappointed, all in all I'm just glad to be getting DLC characters at all. I'm am also glad to see that Batman isn't the only character getting a Black Lantern costume in this game.
Whoa! He looks incredible!
