Firestorm's looking less hot in full Injustice 2 trailer



Revealed a couple of days ago on Austin Creed's UpUpDownDown YouTube channel, Firestorm has finally gotten a full Injustice 2 reveal trailer. Along with some looks at Green Arrow, we get a better idea of how Firestorm's going to play. Rather than be as annoyingly projectile heavy as he seemed in his initial reveal, or utilize any of his alchemic powers from the comics, Firestorm seems to be a rushdown/zoning type of character. 

Which means he's going to be good at keeping opponents far away, but still have some ways to deal with opponents up close. As noted in the comments for the last article, his super is also underwhelming. I'm not sure who's decision it was to make the sequel's supers less interesting to watch than the first game (the main theory seems to be a want to appeal to the competitive scene), but this is probably going to be a bad move in the long run. 

We'll have to see how the rest of the cast holds up when Injustice 2 releases May 16th on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One
