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?

NO MORTAL KOMBAT CHARACTERS!
As much as I like Scorpion, this is kind of annoying, there were so many Superheroes they could have done, but nope, Scorpion. Next is probably going to be Subzero...
Mixed feelings about this one. I LOVE Scorpion, but they could have went with one of the many DC backlog. I LOVE the game, but have mixed feelings about this addition.
Holy fuxing hell he looks so cool damn
I concur; Scorpion looks fantastic but this is for DC characters Only.
I really don't mind. I would have liked to see a DC character instead. It's all gravy though. I have total confidence in NetherRealm in what they do best.
Im PISSED !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Man they could've used Darkawk!!!! He pretty much would fight like Scorpion and even has a grappler to "get over here" his enemies and stuff...... Actually I think Darkhak is marvel.
Looks good, but I would have rather seen another DC character added to the roster.
The idea of rinse and repeat must of came to them when they thought of Kratos going in the Mortal Kombat Universe. If he the only one than good. We really need more DLC content of DC Universe characters since there so much the developer can add into this game. Like Batgirl and Red Sons was good and interesting idea. So they should maintain that really.
nobody mentioned martin manhunter i should hear some applause
Scorpion is always a plus in my book.
Definitely didn't see that coming... Makes me wonder if they'll do a cross over next...
I'm just happy that more characters are coming to the game. ^_^
I wish they would have given us another dc character instead of trying to sell more copies of mortal kombat.
If I wanted a Mortal Kombat character, I'd replay the reboot. I was really hoping they'd be smart and give us something new.
