New 'Injustice: Gods Among Us' Video Reveals Lex Luthor and Story Details

Check out Lex Luthor's special moves!

The DC fighting game by NetherRealm Studios is almost here and I'm ridiculously excited. Every little bit of info they throw our way right now is something to get giddy about. The lucky folks over at CVG got their hands on an exclusive new video. The sweet cinematic reveals more about the story (who's on which side and why) and reveals some of Lex Luthor's attacks!

Enjoy keeping this one on loop for the next hour or so.

As you might recall, Lex Luthor and Bane were previously announced via a magazine. While I'd love to see a video of Bane in action, I'd prefer a new reveal or two instead! If you're excited for the game, don't forget to check out the prequel digital comic every Tuesday!

'Injustice: Gods Among Us' will come out April 19th and, if you have the cash, there's a fairly awesome Battle Edition and Collector's Edition available.

Looking pretty good

First day purchase.

Looks fun... I hope the Red Hood is in it :D

It seems that it's another story of Superman going bad? How about one where Batman goes bad.

Posted by kennybaese

Huh, it looks like they've modified the costumes designs a bit. It looked like the silver/grey accents on Batman's mask were gone and I think Wonder Woman's costume looked a little different as well.

So the "bad guys" are Supes, WW, and Flash.

This.

Is it me or Wonder Woman is fighting Deathstroke in a Black Adam like map?

I didn't really get that from the trailer. I just kinda feel like they are all going a little bit more "all out". Though you could be totally right. As a HUGE Flash fan, I'd love to see him as a villain.

"They already have that... it's called Reverse-Flash". Shut up.

Susan Eisenberg, George Newbern and Kevin Conroy are lending their voices to this game! How does it not get better than that? But I'm not interested in this game for 2 reasons:

1. I'm very bad at fighting games and their story mode is usually bad (not the case with this one)

2. I'm not interested in seeing another Kingdom Come inspired rehash where Superman takes control and establishes a dictatorial regime. That's something Superman would never, ever do for anything in the world, not even Lois' death would prompt that.

People complaining because Supes, Flash and Wondy are baddies? Lol just enjoy we getting this game

Posted by mk111

@Birthright:

Exactly.

Besides, most people play fighting games for the fighting, not the plot.

Posted by evilvegeta74

Supermans voice sounds like the voice from the animated series!

Posted by pspin

Superman's voice sounds off and the Joker isn't Mark Hamill... Still looks good though.

Probably going to have to wait until a price drop for this one.

Wonder Woman vs train = Train wins. Now who says she and Superman have nothing in common?

I don't see how Superman, Flash and Wonder Woman could lose to Batman and Lex Luthor. Sure maybe they could get Superman with Kryptonite maybe, but than how do you handle WW and Flash?

Also which side do guys like Cyborg and Deathstroke fall on?

Ocean Master always wins via massive storm of doom.

Ignore the plot. NetherRealm Studios isn't known for making good or logical stories. They do however make awesome fighting games.

Ocean Master always wins via massive storm of doom.

Fact: Joker brought Doomsday along in that submarine as a precaution in case he ran into Ocean Master.

1. Plot Device is my guess.

2. Depends on how they deal with Cyborgs personality in this version. I'm more inclined to think he'd be on Batman's side and given that Supes is ruling with an iron fist I'm assuming all the villains would be in Bat's side with the exception of guys like The Joker and Harley and Grundy and Doomsday. I guess my only real question is which guys would technically be on the Superman's side, it's way too easy to assume why people would be against Superman in this situation but I'm not drawing up many names at the moment of people that would support his regime.

So Nightwing will beat the sh!t out of Batman in-story? SOLD!

Still can't find a place to pre-order the CE in the UK :(

Flash and Wonder Woman just seemed off to me. I do think they could have come up with a better premise other than Superman gone bad again. It's never been done in a video game tho but I'm unfortunately not expecting much from the story here

Getting soooooo excited for this.

Posted by dondave

Batman's voice is cool

This is going to be interesting. Guess I have to read the comic to find out why.

Disagree, in terms of fighting games MK is known to be the best easily...and at least put effort into it. Besides, the MK team primarily aren't writing the story, it's done by DC guys FYI the MK guys are working with them...

Aw man no Clancy Brown :(

Still cool though would like some Martian Manhunter or Doomsday and maybe Ocean Master.

@Dernman: Because Batman is Batman.

@UrmanitaRules: I like Batman but *&^*&^ Batman. Besides he may be Bat but he's not Super. :p
Edited by JakeN7

Yay! Batman is Kevin Conroy and Superman is Tim Daily!

Nay! Joker is not Mark Hamill and Lex isn't Clancy Brown (but if that is Michael Ironside like I think it is then....SQUUEEEE! Even though he would make a better Darkseid....)

I feel you man! Come in for a hug...

That's definitely Tim Daly as Superman though. Mark Hamill retired from doing the Joker. No one thought he was serious, but I guess he's staying true to his word. :(

It's a fighting game, you don't need to explain how Batman, Lex or even how Joker could fight Wonder Woman or Doomsday.
