Scarecrow and The Flash electrify this new crop of Injustice 2 trailers

NetherRealm's Injustice 2 looks to be one of the biggest video game brawls of the year, with its seemingly endless hit parade of reveal teasers and backstory trailers featuring heroes and villains from across the entire spectrum of the DC Universe.

The newest batch of body-slamming, bone-breaking character previews showcases the maniacal master of fear, Scarecrow, and The Fastest Man Alive, The Flash. A third trailer delves into the intricate Gear System of Injustice 2, where you can customize your costumes, weapons, and goals through a complex system of evolutionary play styles that let you supercharge your combatant's look in thousands of wild variations.

Watch Barry Allen grapple with Gorilla Grodd and use his time-tripping powers to defeat the hulking armored beast, then see Scarecrow infest Batman's mind with green nerve gas and drag him into Crane's horrifying nightmare-scape where that insane anarchist gets super-sized.

Lace up your gloves or throw down the gauntlet and tell us who you're sending into the arena when Injustice 2 launches its furious fight-athon on PS4 and Xbox One starting May 16.
