Injustice: Gods Among Us

Two New Injustice Videos Showcase Aquaman, Green Lantern

As someone who hasn't read many comics since the early 2000s, I have always been under the impression that Aquaman is the worst superhero ever created. However, the comic fans in the office have informed me that New 52 reboot somehow found a way to make him cool (or at least tolerable). Aquaman's image rebuilding campaign continues in this Injustice gameplay footage as he takes on Cyborg, one of the newer members of the Justice League.

NetherRealm also released a video featuring Green Lantern flexing his muscle against the undefeatable zombie frankenstein monster Solomon Grundy.

Injustice: Gods Among Us comes to PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and Wii U on April 16.

  • Playing as Aqua Man is getting to be more and more tempting. DC is doing a really good job with him.
  • I like how they are trying as hard as possible to make Aqua Man more than the running joke of the DC universe lol http://youtu.be/V0kvdi3GGA0
  • Aquaman...lol.

    At least they're trying to make him seem relevant to the DC Universe.
  • This would a fun 2v2 coop game when you're drinking with friends.

  • The GL special that takes place on Oa is spectacular. I hope they leave something to the imagination. It seems like they're spoiling the entire game in these Battle Arena videos.

  • Cyborg says booyah! Yay!

    Edit: Anybody else think it's kinda dumb that the cast of the game leans so heavily on Batman? You got him, Joker, Harley, Catwoman, Bane, Nightwing. Seems like they're ignoring the rest of the guys and their rivals. Speaking of rivals, there should be more than 5. Game still looks sweet, but the cast coulda been a bit more diverse.
  • aquaman was awesome before the 52 have any of you even tried to read or see anything to do with him?
  • Wait was Cyborg's Super really just a big laser?  That wasn't even 10% as cool as all the other super's  I've seen thus far if you ask me.  Still can't get over the fact that some characters really look weird knocking others through several buildings/rooms with one hit.  I know its a game and a cool part of the game at that,  it just looks really off sometimes.

  • 6 for 6. Hal and Arthur owned, as expected. One week until the quarter-finals. On a side note, has anyone else read the first six issues of the Injustice comic? Good stuff. Definitely worth 99 cents an issue.
  • I don't know about anyone else, but all these matches seem staged. I get that they want to show off each characters abilities and their special power, but in the end, the winner just seems staged to me. In Aquaman vs Cyborg, Cyborg cleary had the advantage and did more damage, but he still loses. Same goes for the Lex vs Joker match. We never see any heath bars to see what the real damage they are doing to each other. I'm not interested in playing too many of these characters, even though so far, I know who they all are, because I do read a ton of comics. I'm just interested in Catwoman, Batman, Superman and Wonder Woman. If they were to add Supergirl, she'd be my primary...(maybe as DLC which would rock). I'd love to see a real match, un-staged and playing these characters the way they are meant to be played. No standing there, waiting for the other guy to launch his special move. No more moving in front of that throwable object to see how cool it is. Just down on, dirty fighting the way it should be. I can guarantee Multiplayer will be nothing like this as you won't get 5 seconds to stand there and pull off a special and have it connect. Don't get me wrong, I've had this game pre-ordered for a long time and still can't wait to get it. I just want the real gameplay footage and not these staged matches. Hopefully round 2 will be much better and show some characters owning, 1 sided advantage, vs this take turns junk they have now.
  • I don't know why Aquaman gets so much hate, I think he's alright.
  • Aquaman finally is looking pretty cool all of a sudden.

  • Aquaman has come really far in recent years. He's actually one of my favorite characters now!

  • How is Aquaman fighting outside of water? I'm sure somebody more familiar with the comics can fill me in on this, I always thought...WATER ONLY

  • Aquaman: "Huh... no fish here, eh? Well, you win, I guess."
  • It's cool that they've got Aquaman in the game, but I want Jason Todd.

  • Aqua Man is badass!

  • Really looking forward to playing as Green Lantern, the game just looks like a bunch of fun. I only wish for GL's super they had something more cinematic when he teleports to Oa... Maybe opening a portal and throwing the foe into it first? It's really cool as is, it just slightly breaks immersion (I know, odd to use when describing spandexed men and women suplexing each other through buildings) for there to be a flash of light and suddenly a different stage.
