The 2013 video game Injustice: Gods Among Us is a very popular fighting style game where DC Comics heroes and villains face off against each other in fights to the "death." Recently a photo of the poster for the game's sequel leaked on the internet, here's what we got.

Then, a few days later we got the trailer!


So, with the recent news and excitement of all of this, I've decided to make a list of all the characters we need to see in this game! First, the heroes!

Red Hood

Jason Todd a.k.a. The Red Hood, is a very interesting character with an interesting backstory. He is also a very brutal and tough man who doesn't take anything from anyone. So it'd be great to see him take on members from both the Injustice League and the Justice League.


Cole Cash is an ex-soldier who is now a vigilante named Grifter. He is a firearms expert, so that makes him one of the most dangerous men in the DC universe. Because of experimentation, he also has telepathy and telekinesis. Grifter is a lesser-know hero, so I'd love see him face off against the big dogs of DC Comics.

Booster Gold

Booster Gold is a time-traveler from the 25th Century who uses highly advanced technology (that he stole) to fight crime. Booster Gold is a very powerful man who can bring so much potential to the Injustice sequel!

Now, on to the villains!

Black Manta

Black Manta is the arch-nemesis of the king of the Atlantis, Aquaman. His suit is primarily a black wetsuit with a bug-eyed helmet that can shoot blasting rays from its eyes. Black Manta is a combat expert who, without a doubt, would be a force to be reckoned with in the world of Injustice.

Killer Croc

Killer Croc is an enemy of Batman who has heightened senses and super-strength, he also happens to look like a crocodile, obviously. His appearance was originally a birth defect, although he has become more reptilian over time due to genetic experimentation. Killer Croc is a savage beast that would be amazing to play as in this brutal fighting game!

Ra's al Ghul

Ra's al Ghul, translated as "Head of the Demon", is an immortal terrorist. He was born centuries ago, and he has remained youthful because of the Lazarus Pits, which is basically the fountain of youth. He has centuries of experience, so he is an expert in both combat and war tactics. He is also the commander of the League of Assassins.

Honorable Mentions:

  • More Speedsters!

It'd be amazing to see a bunch speedsters running around and kicking butt, am I right? Speedsters that would be great to play as include: Reverse Flash, Zoom, Kid Flash, Impulse, and Jesse Quick.

  • More Lanterns!

We'll have Hal Jordan, Sinestro, and the recently confirmed Atrocitus, but why not have more Lantern Corps? We could have Kyle Rayner (White), Guy Gardner (Green), Carol Ferris (Sapphire), etc.

Additional Costumes?

As I was watching the trailer, this scene stood out to me. It shows armor that closely resembles the Arkham Knight.

As you probably know, it was revealed in the game that Jason Todd (Red Hood) was indeed the Arkham Knight. So, this means it is very possible that Red Hood will be included in the roster of characters. Could we see this as an alternate skin for the former Boy Wonder?

Who do you want to see in the Injustice sequel? What did you think of the trailer? Let me know!
