Two more nefarious ne'er-do-wells are on deck to hurl both punches and
one-liners in NetherRealm Studios' forthcoming DC Comics fighter Injustice: Gods Among Us
. Lex Luthor, classic Superman baddie and girlfriend kidnapping enthusiast, shows up to the party in a powered robotic suit, using a special shield and gadget-based attacks.
Meanwhile, perennial Batman-buster Bane is a grappling-based character devoid of projectiles, using his Venom-infused bigness
to out-big other opponents. Given the character's history, we can wager a guess as to what wrestling move his full-meter Super will predominantly feature.
While no trailer has been released as of yet, a scan of the latest Game Informer (tweeted
by NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon) does give us a glimpse of what the characters will look like. Luthor's appearance is quite similar to his robotic look in DC Universe Online
, which is fine, we suppose, but Bane's resemblance to his appearance in Batman & Robin
gives us pause. Which is to say, we had to pause and throw up after being forced to remember that movie.
