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?

In my opinion it's a lame DLC. The game is Injustice not MK and in interviews from developers at Neatherrealm claimed they wanted to make Injustice it's own game and as FAR from MK as possible. So following that logic of course it makes sense that they should throw in MK characters instead of one of the 100s they could have chosen from DC universe. If they want MK to fight DC characters maybe they should make a game for that. Or wait did they.... oh yeah they did.
I'm stoked for this. Scorpion fits in just fine with characters like Raven and Ares, and after having Krueger in Mortal Kombat, this kind of cameo is a nice wink to fans.
i think this is a good idea, but because he's not a dc character and everyone has him in mk9, this dlc should just be free and not part of the season pass.
That...um...I need to buy this game...
Gota love Scorpion
Lame. I knew it was coming but it's still disappointing. I don't care that they're releasing an MK character, it sucks that he's part of the Season Pass though.
I don't care how well he fits, this is a total cop out.
It's a shame that I really don't like fighting games too much anymore, because this game looks incredible. Never watched a video of it before, but it looks absolutely great.
I guess everyone that's freaking about no Martian Manhunter didn't watch all the way to the end of the video...
That looks AMAZING. I've never played a mortal kombat on a console so I'm good with it...
Dumb. With DC having such great characters and so deep a mythos, you shouldn't waste them by patting yourself on the back. I can see it as a last DLC character ever sort of thing but as the 3rd one it's way too self indulgent.
Saw this coming a mile away. Still think it was a bad choice. With all the DC characters they could have picked from, why bother with MK characters?
I find it funny how "excited" people are over Scorpion being in this game and seeing him in action..he's being completely recycled from MK9....
I would of preferred a unique DC character instead, but adding more variety to the character roster and meta-game for Injustice is always a good thing.
Besides we still have 1 more DLC character left for the season pass, and It's looking more and more likely we may get a second batch of DLC characters.
5 bucks?! Reallly?!
