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?

Seems cool and I suppose it makes sense that there would be a guest character from Mortal Kombat eventually, but I do think they should've just stuck with bringing more of the DC characters in.
No. It's not Mortal Kombat. I don't want Mortal Kombat characters in a DC game. But that's just me, and I'm not going to hate on anyone that likes the idea.
Scorpion is cool, but I'm not sure he needed to be in this game. His costume is a little goofy. I'm not sure why people have an issue with his fighting style though, looks cool to me.
That MM thing at the end was just... weird. Wonder what that's all about...
Meh it's just Ed Boon stroking his ego by dropping one of his MK characters into this game in my opinion. They have tons of DC characters to add over Scorpion. I personally find Injustice to be horribly unbalanced and lackluster.
Also I've never read the comics but there's a zombie Superman? That's awesome! lol.
*I know it's called Black Lantern Superman I just think it's easier to call him a zombie cause that's what he looks like.*
They had to do this, didn't they?
A zillion DC characters to choose from and tons of great ones missing from the game and you throw in Scorpion? Dumb.
The gameplay looks fine, and I like his new design. But still, I really was hoping for my DC characters. Not sure if I feel happy about this choice.
if i had that i would feel ripped of lol
wgy isnt there fatalities in this game? superman ripping someone apart would be awesome.
It appears Martian Manhunter will be the next character.
Now that is a beatin!!!!!!!
Okay since scorpion is in attendance now does that mean you can just throw spiderman in...please : ] i now hes not in the dc univers buuut neither is scorpion sooo isn't it a possibility now?
You have this entire DC universe with billions and billions of sta- characters and you bring back a character from the already successful MK9?
What a shame.
Fatality Not Included what why not?
