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?

That's weird, but not entirely out of the question I suppose at this point.
"To hell with you!"
*sends him to Hell*
never gets old.
am i the only one that doesn't like his costume that much?
Static Shock is the cartoon, Static is the character.
C'mon guys, if he's obscure, 30 seconds of wikipedia fact checking is your friend.
It's not like you're going on about Scorpion King and Green Lamp-Man.
His victory scene is way cooler then this super.
I am totally fine wth this. Besides, his new costume is sweet.
and like that i hate ed boon
The new design is so awesome. Fits in well with the DC Universe.
All this really accomplished is making me want to see a DC/Mortal Kombat crossover in the comics. And without a half-assed premise like MKvDC.
Hmm.. if they are gonna continue down this path.. why did´ny they just call it Injustice:Gods and Mortal Combat chars amongst us?
I got really excited when I heard this. I know people want Martian Manhunter and more DC people, but I love the fact that Scorpion is in it. And look at it this way, MK9 had Kratos and Freddy, which aren't MK characters, but were fun additions.
approved. any dissaproval of this is dissaproved.
Out of anyone from Mortal Kombat im happy its Scorpion.
this kinda sucks...scorpion is cool and all, but you can't have scorpion without sub-zero and this is a DC game...give more time to DC characters...i see this as to make money...
Still good to see Scorpion, although I wish he had a more melee focused special move! It seems like they could just continue with another season pass for many more characters!
Why bring back the mistake of mixing Mortal Kombat and DC characters? Especially with no FATALITIES. Yeah it's bad ass but with no fatalities, it's alright .
NetherRealm really should keep these two games separate. As much as I love the MK series, Scorpion needs to stay in that universe. Plus, it's beginning to feel like Mortal Kombat vs. DC all over again. Wasn't happy with that game, either!!!
While Scorpion looks like an intersting addition to the Injustice lineup, I think he should stick to Mortal Kombat. They've tried to pit Scorpion against Superman before in MKvDCU with mixed results.
If Netherrealm Studios IS planning on adding more characters beyond the 4 Season-Pass characters, I hope they add the likes of Starfire or Huntress or... uh, Metamorpho.
So, Injustice has become what MK vs. DC should have been?
