Damian Wayne in Injustice: Gods Among Us?

#1 Posted by JakeN7 (12645 posts) - - Show Bio

Wasn't sure if this has been done before, couldn't find anything.

With the possible tragedy befalling Damian in this Wednesday's release of Batman Incorporated #8, I'm glad to see evidence of a possible appearance by him in the upcoming DC comic's fighting game "Injustice: Gods Among Us." Check out the solicit for the 5th issue of the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic coming in May.

The cover seems to suggest that Damian is taking Superman's side. Could that really happen?

Based on the upcoming DC fighting game from NetherRealm Studios, creators of Mortal Kombat! Batman has two allies: Damian and Dick Grayson. One is with him, while the other has joined Superman’s cause. The conflict between The Dark Knight and The Man of Steel is about to turn very personal. Plus: The Flash travels to Australia and ponders his own allegiances.

Pretty cool right? Now the question arises, will he be playable, or will he just make a cameo appearance to serve the narrative? Either way, I'm pretty stoked!

Damian's hardcore and truly believes in justice the hard way!

I hope he is not in the game because we already got Nightwing and there so many better characters to pick in the DC universe

Could be DLC? If anyone is capable of honing Damian's killer instinct it's the guys over at NeatherRealm Studios.

I not sure if WB is going to put a 10 year old in a brutal fighting game.

He looks a bit older than 10 there, they might mess with continuity and put him in his teenage years or something.

It's possible. In Mortal Kombat Deception the protagonist was a young teenage boy who grows into adulthood as the game progresses. I can imagine Damian's signature weapon being the katana and him tearin dudes up. I agree we have too many Batman characters. Harley Quinn, Killer Croc and Catwoman are all unnecessary, especially when you already have Bane and Joker.

The only other Batman character that should be in the game outside of Batman, Nightwing and Bane and Joker should have been Redhood.

Pretty sure Croc just has a cameo in the Arkham stage, but you're right; already more than enough Batman Characters.

Also, don't see how Damian will have much to differentiate himself from characters like Nightwing and Deathstroke.

Damian is badass if you dont agree just see batman inc 8

I want to play with him

#14 Posted by Black_Claw (2997 posts) - - Show Bio

No. Maybe just have him in the cutscenes but not as an actual playable character. There are way to many batman characters already.

#15 Posted by The Average Bear (2079 posts) - - Show Bio

He would be a really cool DLC character. I could see him being really fast and whatnot. I'd really like to see a Bat-Family DLC with the other Robins too, but I know that's unlikely

thats how it works, batman characters take up space in DC games, and X-men take up space in marvel games.

The xmen aren't street levelers they have varied powersets, so yeah they deserve to take up space!

Very true, it's a waste in character space , but I would like to see Damian, those characters above should be DLCs

Don't put him in the game, but for the love of god make his Bat suit an alternate for Batman in DLC or something. Please.

i think Damian might die in an upcoming arc.

tom taylor revealed this cover and called it " a painful arc"

He'll probably die in the game or comic I mean look at the next issue for june, it says that Batman has lost everything but catwoman, meaning probably his home alfred the batcave wayne enterprise his son and others and he's dead in new 52.

#23 Posted by Black_Claw (2997 posts) - - Show Bio

I think Damian could play a huge role in the story. Since he's always been one of the more violent members of the Bat family I can definitely see him taking supermans side In this game. That has a ton of potential for drama in the story.

@Rumble Man: If Alfred was apart of the game he would be a broken character having many unfair advantages and overpowered spamable moves xD.

Well, we know Nightwing's in the game. So Bruce hasn't lost everything, and solicitations are intentionally misleading. But yeah, I think Damian might die in the comic. The strange thing is...that particular issue actually comes out after the game itself comes out, meaning we'll know if Damian survives the prequel comic, before the issue that details his potential death even comes out. : /

I'm sure a lot of Damian fans are pissed off since they think Damian's role in the story is a bit to soon after his demise in the comics.
