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?

Eh....His costume and fighting style look kinda cool but this just screams of laziness and/or cheap ego service. Ya, ya...We get it....You guys made Mortal Kombat.....
Here's hoping there will be more DLC characters than just the Season Pass four cause this offering (if Martiam Manhunter is indeed the fourth character) hasn't been terribly impressive. The only character I'm even remotely interested in buying is Batgirl.
Big waste right there.
What the hell Boon?!!! This is supposed to be a DC fighting game!! You are recycling scorpion with the same moveset from MK9??? What's the matter, too lazy to create a good character from the some odd 50 choices from the DC roster? Black Canary, Starfire, Beast Boy , Firestorm, Darkside, Blue Beetle. I was almost ready to forgive you for wasting a slot with batgirl......almost
It pisses me off to have characters from mortal kombat. If I wanted to play as scorpion I'd buy mortal kombat.
nice but i wanted only dc characters
BWahhahahaha are people really surprised? Waste of a character slot, to those wanting to play Scorpion, go back to Mortal Kombat 9. He has no place here, this was to be a DC centric game and with fan favorites still missing this is just a big *** you.
Every video game Ed Boon touches...has Scorpion in it, getting a little ridiculous when time and money could have been put elsewhere.
And while you're at it, don't forget to re-release MK vs DCU again and piss off a whole genre...
can we get freakazoid to make an appearance??
At least they made him fit, and fans may be getting their wish for Martian Manhunter. Now if they add a tag-team mode in the future that would totally rock.
I think it is a lame season pass holder addition. I do however think Scorpion does fit in well and will always be awesome.
I am annoyed, as I mentioned on my site, but he will be a fun addition. If I pay for a DC fighting game, and the Season Pass, I expect DC fighters.
I finally have a reason to buy this game.
That was a badass scorpion!! They shoulda did that with MK vs DC
Yeah, this is LAME.
If I wanted to play as Scorpion I'd just throw my copy of MK in. There are literally dozens of DC characters that would have been a better choice than Scorpion. I won't name all the ones I'd rather see, but a couple are Martian Manhunter, Zod, Darkseid, Bizarro, Atrocitus, Beast Boy/Changeling, Swamp Thing (post Blackest Night and merging with the Entity), Static, Star Sapphire, Starfire....the list goes on.
And I'm really curious about MM showing up at the end. It seems fairly obvious that the .ini leak was spot-on and we'll be getting Zod next as all the other characters were right. I wonder if his appearance means a 2nd round of DLC, or that he'll be the 4th instead of Zod.
I like what I saw out of him, but I really wanted more DC characters, specifically Deadman, Swamp Thing, Red Hood, or Booster-Gold
I don't necessarily want MK characters in the game.
I wanted Swamp Thing and maybe Rorschach from Watchmen.
Actually, I'd really like if they'd hurry up and get that DLC available for the Wii U audience.
