DC/NetherRealms have released some huge hints that suggest a host of new, but very unexpected characters for Injustice: Gods Among Us. Earlier today, the following update was provided for all iOS devices.
The suggestions in the above announcement reveal that a new Solomon Grundy card-fighter in his boss suit will be available as well as Doomsday in his containment suit, which are both pictured below.
Second, fans have been loud with their critiques of Scorpion as a card-fighter. It looks like DC/NetherRealms have taken note and the next update will alter either his passive ability, stats, or both. There is no mention of altering Red Son Deathstroke’s devastating second level special attack or Green Arrow’s amazingly useful Freeze Arrow, which does not thaw if it successfully strikes an opponent.
Last, the announcement clearly suggests that more than one Challenge is on the horizon. Obviously, Killer Frost will not be available any time soon, but the announcement throws a huge curve ball into what was previously planned and confirmed. At this point, both Ares and Shazam seem to be on the back-burner and will be held back as playable characters on iOS devices.
DC/NetherRealm’s previous announcement of releasing Shazam, Red Son Green Lantern, and Red Son Batman appears to be scrapped and completely retooled. For now, fans should prepare themselves for newer Gold versions of previous characters, and even Darkseid and another Wonder Woman in her 600 skin. Regardless of the mixed signals sent out, WASDuk thinks everyone can agree that nobody saw Boss Grundy, Darkseid, 600 Wonder Woman, and Containment Doomsday teaming up to take out the gods we were told we were getting; bizarre.
