Three New Characters Announced for ‘Injustice: Gods Among Us’


The beefy roster for Netherrealm Studios’ upcoming DC Comics-based fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us keeps getting filled in slowly but surely, with this weekend pulling back the cape/curtain on three new comic combatants.

The three new fighters are obvious, but still exciting for comic fans.  Coming as no surprise to fans are the inclusion of both Green Lantern (the Hal Jordan version, of course) and the Joker, which is no shock given their A-List status, as well as their inclusion in Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe

The more surprising addition is that of Green Arrow, a vigilante playboy with an affluence of archery skills as well as sweet, sweet cash.  Imagine Batman without the crushing survivor’s guilt, and you’re on the right track.  It’s not that shocking, however, given the recent premiere of the CW’s Arrow series, as well as his oft-shirtless inclusion in the himbo-filled Smallville.  You can check him out in the trailer below, supplied by G4

While I appreciate some of the lesser-known characters being thrown into the mix (Solomon fuckin’ Grundy!), I hope that some of DC’s more supernatural characters can make it into the final roster.  Is it too much to ask for Swamp Thing, complete with floral finishing move?
