On Wednesday, good news was delivered to both comic book and video game fans alike: The fight isn’t over.
That’s right, NetherRealm Studios has just announced that it will be releasing Injustice 2 sometime in 2017, a sequel to 2013’s smash-hit fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us. The new trailer didn’t show off any new gameplay footage, but did reveal the addition of Supergirl to the roster, and the press release confirmed that the vicious leader of the Red Lanterns, Atrocitus, and the telepathic simian despot Gorilla Grodd would be jumping into the brawl as well.
In addition, the press release stated that Injustice 2 would boast “the biggest DC roster ever offered in a fighting game,” which immediately inspired fans—this one included—to begin speculating as to who might make the cut. The library of possible DC heroes and villains is immense, so I’m bringing you my top eight of each, and am giving you the breakdown on why they deserve to be included, and how likely it is they’ll make the final cut. I’ve include sure-fire inclusions, wildcards and everything in between, so read on to see if your favorite is on the list. If not, let us know who you want to see duke it out in the comments!
