General Zod is the Fourth DLC Character in 'Injustice: Gods Among Us'

KNEEL BEFORE INJUSTICE'S LATEST FIGHTER!

Well, it looks like the leak got four out of four correct! Tonight on Conan, the Superman villain was revealed as the final DLC character in the first season pass (Ed Boon has confirmed they have plans for at least one more character). I know some fear he could be a Superman clone (I've always sided with "wait and see"), and unfortunately we don't get to see too much of his gameplay. We do, however, learn that General Zod has a ridiculously awesome power move. Basically, he smashes his enemy through the moon (yup, the moon) and then blasts them back down to Earth with heat vision. And yes, it appears he says "KNEEL BEFORE ZOD!" during his throw (or perhaps it was a special move). In the event the following video is taken down, go here and Zod gameplay begins around 3:17.

General Zod will be downloadable in July. Do you think he'll make a good addition to the roster, Viners?

Ugh, I hate his character design so much

Edited by k4tzm4n

Hating his costume is legitimate. Being disappointed a character you like more wasn't picked it legitimate. Thinking Zod will suck because of these reasons is not. We've barely seen his gameplay, at least try to keep a remotely open mind until we see an extended video with all of his moves. For all you know, he could be a really fun character to use.

In their defense, playing as a character you enjoy looking at helps. I completely agree, people shouldn't say he straight out sucks.

However, that design is such a mismatch. To some, it barely looks like General Zod. I get what they were going for, but it is completely hideous compared to what they could've picked.

Did you ever see the mod someone made for Injustice that included General Zod?

Design is absolutely terrible. Hopefully we get a MoS skin pack. Oh well at least MMH is more than likely next up.

You been robbed!

Kinda expected Zod's intro to be escaping the Phantom Zone. A little let down by that. But, otherwise, awesome!

I'd shoot Batgirl in the-oh, geez, I'm still typing!

Me and my friends are making jokes such as "Kneel Before Bald".

Anyway, here everyone. Take a good look at The Flaming C. Take note, this may just be an alt skin for Superman.

Take note, in the video, It's a fully edited costume. Not just a mod made by some random person. It was a fully edited skin.

Oh, yeah, I've seen him in "Young Justice Abridged".

looks awful

@jokergeist: Step one is complete.

Now make him so he isn't as fit as Joker.

Guys, there's an alternate skin of Zod. There's also this:

@the_unknown_x: Fan made

Too bad because that looks like the real general zod

@ccraft: It looks exactly the same

Posted by ccraft

@stormbox: @sideburnguru: @sammo21:

It might not be a redesign but there are minor changes that have been done, it does look better. I was very disappointed at first because, he just looked like crap, but now I realized they must have released him too soon and are still working on him.

He might even get more tweeks, hopefully.

  • The face has been worked on
  • The belt has changed
  • His shirt doesn't look like armor anymore
  • Even his crappy forearm armor has had some work.
  • Also his pants

After (below)

@ccraft: He still looks like a tiny, angry, bald man who is in goofy attire. Just my opinion, obviously, but definitely not what I think when I think of General Zod. That being said, I find fault with many of Injustice's costumes.

Edited by ccraft

@sammo21: Even though it's elseword type design they still could have made him look like Zod. Not just adding the beard, goggles and his "kneel before zod" line (still wish he would have shot that laser into the opponents eyes instead of the chest area).

My guess is they tried to make zod look nothing like Superman at all, so they made him bald and skinny. All the hate messages about how Zod will be a clone of Superman, probably played a role in his design. (which makes me even more mad at people who complain out stuff before it's even seen)

I was really hyped, I was hoping for a badass looking Zod, but I'm still excited for his game play video.

no one has robbed us. im not happy about Zod either but lets not blow things out of proportion.

Watch the video, it's anything but lazy work. Zod's design might not appeal to many people, but people did complain that he might be a Superman clone, so now he looks nothing like Superman.

Oh but they did robbed us! They robbed from using Zod now! lol can't wait to use him July.

@ccraft:

So they are releasing him in July?

It was mentioned on the Conan Clueless Gamer segment yesterday, he said Zod would be available July, no exact date though... My guess early July

Who cares about Zod? Flaming C all the way!

@decoy_elite: I hope The Flaming C is sold separately, I really don't want that skin. I would have much preferred Kingdom Come Superman skin.

I'm hoping it's free or something, but you're probably right about it being sold as it's own thing(or part of a joke pack).

Kingdom Come skins would be pretty sweet, especially if they had stuff like KC Cyborg and Red Robin.

Flaming C lol is Conans alter ego

Edited by ccraft

@decoy_elite: Even though NRS has been making a lot of great skin packs, they really need to give other characters skins, so far Batman has like 7 skins.

Cyborg was in KC?

Posted by Decoy Elite

@ccraft: Yeah, I think Injustice overall went too Bat crazy.

He appears briefly and looks completely different from how he looks normally so he's easy to miss unless you have the trade that identifies all the various characters that appear.

Posted by ccraft

@decoy_elite: I don't really see that many Batman online players, maybe I just get lucky.

I collected KC digitally

Posted by Decoy Elite

@ccraft: What I meant is that there's too many Bat related things in the game IMO.

Ah yeah then you probably didn't get the character thing. Doesn't help that I can't find an image to post.

Meh, I was hoping fo more

Edited by NightFang

I won't Martian Manhunter, damn it!

Edited by drgnx
Posted by Vaeternus

At first the bald look confused me a bit but the goggles he had clearly inspired by the comics at one point and his goatee/beard is spot on so that's good enough for me. He'll probably have alternate, I hope they give Scorpion an alternate.

Posted by BATMAN9797

Why the is Zod in this game and not Martian Manhunter

Edited by StMichalofWilson

LMAO! That was funny! Imagine if Zod was Pope!

Finally, I now know how to become The Pope ... defeat Batgirl.
