Andrew Ryan Singer and Antonio Hordista teleport into the Watchtower today in order to help WASDuk and its fellow Injustice fanatics kick off this week’s Dream Character series. The team has combed through the millions of demands from fans that they have for DC/NetherRealms. Andrew Ryan Singer has helped develop some great polls and ideas, and Antonio Hordista has taken on the artistic duties of bringing the fan’s dreams to life. Thus, WASDuk proudly presents, in Roundtable format, part 1 featuring Poison Ivy, Classic Batman, and Classic Superman.
From Andrew Ryan Singer:
Recently, a poll surfaced on two Injustice-related Facebook groups, where players were asked their opinions on which “new” characters (by new, I mean characters not in the console versions) they would like to see developed for the mobile version of the game. The polls were only designed for a “what if” scenario. DC/NetherRealms obviously have their own plans, but it’s still nice to imagine such Dream Characters and how they would act. Take note, DC/NetherRealms, for Injustice 2!
Poison Ivy, Gotham City’s very own plant-femme fatale would be, in both my opinion and according to the polls, a perfect addition to the game. Ivy’s melee attacks and plant-based specials make her a force to be truly reckoned with. Her ability Toxic Love would allow her to take half damage from any of the male opponents. In a fighting game, where 75% of the opponents are male, Ivy would be the perfect addition to any team. The only remaining question is which version of Ivy would be planted? The Arkham City seed would be the perfect version to groom.

From Chris Patton (WASDuk.com):
As a die-hard fan of the DCAU (DC Animated Universe), I have fond memories of witnessing how Clayface and Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn leapt from the screen of Batman: The Animated Series into the hearts and minds of the world. When me and Andrew and Antonio created the polls and art, respectfully, it was surprising yet also a relief to see Poison Ivy top the charts.
For the iOS/Android version of Injustice: Gods Among Us a large number of Batman skins, some brilliant and some average, beg the question of which other Gotham alumni could handle battles with the bigger-guns. Poison Ivy would undoubtedly add a welcome, unique fighting style. We’ve seen Martian Manhunter partially morph with plant-arms during his unblockable, so seeing an all-in plant character would be amazing.
From Antonio Hordista (Concept Artist):
Speaking of Batman, I think i’m overdoing it, but…
What other characters topped the polls for Dream Characters that fans want to see in the game? As Adam West’s Batman series used to say, tune in tomorrow, same Bat-time, same Bat-channel! What about you though? did you vote? What do you think of the new Batman and Superman skins as well as adding Posion Ivy to Injustice?
