Since I'm on a fighting game kick recently, I think I'll throw my attention at Netherrealm's next game Injustice. Coming off the success of MK9 I can't blame them for wanting to make a game specific to the DC universe. MK vs DC lacked the impact of MK and from what I seen, didn't have the roster a lot of people might have liked to see from DC. Having played a good amount of MK9's story mode I can definitely see them throwing in a comic-book style series of events if they keep the same idea going with it, however, that is not the focus of this article. With a fighting game comes the concern of a deep roster of characters that are enjoyable to the people playing, especially when connected to DC with their mound and mounds of potential characters.
I'm honestly more partial to Marvel myself. I've always been fond of The Hulk, and more recently Thor (less due to the movie and his newfound 'fame' and more to the nickname I got from a professor) but the idea of a fighting game exclusive to comic books has me giddy, especially when coming from Ed Boon. So I'd like to take this blog-time to lay out characters I'd like to see in the game and then hopefully have some people add in their 2 cents.
This is less for me and more for everyone I see wanting him in the game. Every time I see Injustice mentioned Lobo isn't far behind. A, for lack of a better term, badass alien bounty hunter who has duked it out pretty evenly with Supes a few times and has an attitude to match seems like a good fit for the game, especially when you consider how they are handling gadget/power characters.
2. Black Adam
I don't know much about the character other than the origin of his powers via "SHAZAM", but he seems to be a good fit as a power character for the game on the level of Superman and I really dig his design.
An awesome answer for a gadget character from what I've seen of him. Could have a good emphasis on projectiles but at the same time have the option for hand to hand. Something akin to Nightwing, but more emphasis on manipulation (I'm thinking cyrax-esque)
4. The Green Lantern/Sinestro
Doesn't really need any explaining, it'd be like this games Sub-Zero/Scorpion. Green Lantern is almost a shoe-in for the game and having Sinestro to be his antithesis seems like a no-brainer.
5. Power Girl
Practically DC's answer to the Hulk I definitely have to pull for him since I won't be seeing Mr. Green in this game. Solomon Grundy shows how well they can pull off the "big and lumbering" character so I'd love to see Doomsday around to take it to the extreme.
