First Screenshot of Joker & Green Lantern in 'Injustice: Gods Among Us'

Wondering how Joker and Green Lantern look in the upcoming fighting game? Check out the first in game image of both!

Earlier today we had a glimpse of Joker and Green Lantern on the cover for the game... but now we have a first look at how they'll appear in game thanks to Ed Boon, the Creative Director at NetherRealms.  Joker's primary costume seems to stay close to his stereotypical image, decorated with an acid flower and appropriately bright signature colors.  Meanwhile, Hal's costume has made quite a few changes to the design and texture.

 Never bring a gun to a power ring fight.     
These two were pretty obvious choices from the get-go, but are you happy with how they look?  Also, if they can each only have 1 alternate costume, what would you want it to be and why?  Hopefully we'll have a trailer of the characters in action sooner rather than later! 
  
'Injustice: Gods Among Us' comes out April 2013.  Expect us to have more news on the game as we head to New York Comic-Con this week!

...What's with Hal's pose???

Posted by Kyjeremiah

good character that could be in this; Jason Todd as the red hood, cassandra cain, swamp thing, steel, supergirl, huntress, guy gardner, phantom stranger.

Posted by Onemoreposter

If GL gets one alternative costume I hope to hell it's Kyle Rayner. Also I don't like this Hal design as much as I liked the one in Mortal Kombat vs DCUniverse

Whoever is designing new costumes for DC's characters has a real obsession with having stuff highlight their crotch.

Hey, maybe Joker has a new suit and he really doesn't blood stains in it, even though he shot Hal anyway? Makes sense to me!

I was going to say something, but this comment just totally hijacked my train of thought.

Really? White gloves?

Posted by jwalser3

Love Joker, Lantern looks...meh.

Posted by Fetts

Joker looks great. Green Lantern could be better though.

Posted by LifePool

Joker looks great, Hal needs to be completely redone, not every character works for this 'steampunk armor-esque' look.

Posted by Necrotic_Lycanthrope

TBH, Hal Jordan looks like he has a raging boner for the Joker.

Posted by TitanTempest

Alternate Costume:

For Hal: Kyle Rayner as a Blue Lantern

For Joker: A Red Hood Costume, with the Long Tube Helmut lol

Posted by Readingliberally

Dang,show some love to John Stewart or Guy Gardner.Hal was the green lantern in the last game.Im dissapointed.I like Hal Jordan,but c'mon man!!

Posted by Lone_Wolf_and_Cub

GL looks terrible.

Posted by Readingliberally

@Kal'smahboi: uhm,thats supposed to be the color of his gloves actually.Hate the design,but the color of his gloves are the least of it's problems.

Posted by Selinaky

Joker looks great. I don't like Hal's design.

Posted by SaintWalker

Im not a typical 'fighter' gamer, but this game I definitely will purchase

Posted by They Killed Cap!

lookingforward to this...

Posted by chrisw86

joker looks like he has penguins nose.

Posted by RoninAutomaton

Love all the suggestions/hopes for additional characters and/or costume swaps, but I have $20 down that the next one will be Darkseid. $50 that he’s the end level boss.

Edited by LaserLambert

@RoninAutomaton: can I get in on that action? because you are going to be wrong on both accounts brother.

Also to alleviate some all the hate against GL's costume I see in this forum, I think GL looks badass, I'm not generally a GL fan either. the white gloves are weird but that's what GL has traditionally worn I guess. I like that a lot of flying heroes by default hover in this game instead of just stand there.

That's a sinister-ass Joker.

Posted by TheJokerha

What the eternal burning hell? On the cut scene and the cover art Joker did not have that God awful Jim Lee inspired goblin/ witch nose.

I hate you Jim Lee. You tried to put that nose on him in DCU online and they fixed it.Now they have it in this other wise awesome game. I can over look it but its a stupid ass decision. Who things that's a good idea? You know how many people these designs have to go through? Did no one say "Hey, wait, this looks like crap. Let's NOT make it look like crap. Just an idea."

Maybe they aren't done and this isn't the final design. Maybe negative feedback of early pre release images will call for a redesign.Unlikely but not impossible.

So here is some negative feedback of this early pre release image.

Shorten The Joker's nose, he is not an anime character nor The Penguin.

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

I do like Joker's look, but the vibe I'm getting from Hal is the same vibe I had from the movie. Not that they look the same, but the feeling of "meh" pervades in my mind from it.

Posted by Avenging-X-Bolt

Hal looks good for the most part but the costume has two big flaws. The green crotch (draws way to much attention to that area and make the suit look like his silver age unitard) and the big line running down the suit. It looks godd circling his badge/logo though. His nose is a bit too long though.

The bit of light on his collar makes his nose appear to have that design, but it is in fact a relatively average nose. Save your hellfire and fury.

Posted by LaserLambert

@TheJokerha: that isn't his nose. try enlarging it, it's just the light hitting the collar of his suit that lines up with his nose, it's too low-rez to tell from that image though.

Posted by NightFang

I like Hal's design.

Posted by TheJokerha

@VaizD: @LaserLambert: Thanks guys! I downloaded the picture and took a better look after I saw your posts. I guess I keep expecting something to go wrong. But he does look great! Thanks for corrected perspective.

Posted by Cafeterialoca

Well, now we got the obvious characters out of the way. BRING OUT THE UNEXPECTED!

Posted by Green Lantern 2814.5

Ahh I wanna see the red hood as an alternate costume! Then for Hal, idk, maybe another earth gl? Or maybe another corps costume? like Sinestro corps or something idk

Posted by BlueLanternBeast

Green Lantern looks beast

Edited by Mistah_B

both look fine, completely expected Hal Jordan and Hal Jordan totally looks how I expected. hope they got Atrocitus included

Edited by cosmo111687

Jeez, Hal. Zatanna called and wants her fishnets back.

As for Alts (Besides their traditional look):

  • Batman: Batman of Zur-En-Ahhr.
  • Superman: Bizzaro Swap.
  • Wonder Woman: Jim Lee's Wonder Woman: Odyssey design.
  • Flash: Jay Garrick or Kid Flash Swap.
  • Green Lantern: Alan Scott, Guy Gardner, or John Stewart Swap.
  • Nightwing: Dick Grayson Robin costume (Young Justice design).
  • Catwoman: Tim Burton design.
  • Joker: Batman R. I. P. Joker.
  • Harley Quinn: Really...just put her in her original outfit already, wouldja? Please...I wouldn't ask for anything more...
  • Green Arrow: Connor Hawke costume.
  • Cyborg: Cyberion costume.
  • Solomon Grundy: More decayed version?

P. S. For those who think Joker has a crazy Jim Lee/witch nose, take a second look (I had to.) The lighting on the collar of his jacket makes his nose appear longer than it really is.

That look is so horrible it circles back to awesome!

I think it's official that Arkham Asylum is now a map in the game.

Posted by sethysquare

i love you hal jordan.

Posted by Inverno

I have an idea of how Joker will work. Just like in Mortal Kombat vs DC only with less restraint.

Posted by Xanni15

Hm, I don't really see how the Joker is going to harm anyone else and yet make it believable (yes, I actually said that about a video game) or keep up with them. He's a human being fighting amongst "gods". Also, Hal's costume looks a little off. I think it would be cool to see him with another ring and costume.

Keep up the good work. :]

Hal's pecs are glowing..
