What do we often see in comic books? We usually see superheroes fighting supervillains. But that isn't always how it goes. Often we see hero fighting hero for whatever reason. It's a great treat for readers as we always discuss who would win in a fight if two heroes were pitted against each other. We're about to get that scenario in video game format. Warner Bros. Interactive asks, "What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat?"

Warner Bros. Interactive has announced Injustice: Gods Among Us from the award-winning NetherRealm Studios. If you didn't already know, they're the creators of the Mortal Kombat franchise (and are also responsible for 2008's Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe). he game is scheduled for release in 2013 for the Xbox 360® video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system and the Wii U™ system from Nintendo.

The game will feature a large cast including Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, Flash, Wonder Woman and many others. The line between good and evil has been blurred and we'll be seeing heroes and villains fighting epic battles on a massive scale.

Interestingly enough, the press release for this announcement left out some crucial information. Our friends over at GameSpot have even more information (and some screenshots that I'm borrowing).

It turns out that Justin Gray and Jimmy Palmiotti are the ones responsible for coming up with a way for all of this to go down. This is great news for comic fans as having actual comic book writers involved will add to the credibility of the way the characters are used.

Be sure to check out GameSpot's coverage as they have loads more details on how the game and environment will work.

If that wasn't enough, GameSpot even has the announcement trailer.

As soon as this game is in the building, I'm going to have to find out who has a copy.

They had him in their previous game DC vs Mortal Kombat, so I think it's fair to assume they have him in mind for this one, too ;)

Honestly, I'm excited. Mortal Kombat 9 was superb and if this is even remotely as good I'll probably enjoy it.

I'm surprised Green Lantern wasn't used in the reveal, though.

Mortal Kombat is known for alternate costumes so there's still a chance for the classics.

Yes looks way better than MK vs DC and using the impressive animation of DCUO awesome :D

#15 Posted by shrmntnk62 (251 posts) - - Show Bio

That looks amazing. Hopefully Marvel can do something like this too.

#16 Posted by SupremeHyperion (1523 posts) - - Show Bio

the fact alone that harley quinn will be given the chance to defeat any hero or villain on the roster is lame but game looks pretty cool, just wish it was a different fighting engine (always found MK games to lack flow and smooth combat)

I hope so because I hate Superman's and Wonder Woman's new costume. It's fantasy, their allowed to be a little silly.

#22 Posted by FIash (63 posts) - - Show Bio

They better have a larger set of fighting moves than MK vs DC weak list.

#23 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

@Deranged Midget: :( They locked it while I was watching the video on yours. Ah well.

I hate fighting games, but it's nice to see that they're making something like this with the DC characters. Now if we can only get a good MUA-style game with these guys. Justice League Heroes never happened.

#24 Posted by Video_Martian (5645 posts) - - Show Bio

YES, THANK GOD They're finally making a game that doesn't revolve around frickin' BATMAN all the time...

#25 Posted by Deranged Midget (17599 posts) - - Show Bio

@Gambit1024: Justice League what now? I can't recall such a game ever happening? :P

I personally love fighting games and it's easily one of my favourite genres. NetherRealm is the perfect studio for this and I can't wait to see more footage and hope they release a demo following E3.

Take a closer look, Wonder Woman is wearing the blue pants and Superman doesn't have his red undies and only a few of the new 52 costumes are cool.

@shrmntnk62: I think Marvel is locked into the MvC style of fighting games but I'd rather take something like this. I'm not the biggest fan of MvC 3.

This looks super awesome! and I love the costumes and characters! I can't wait to hear more about this and buy this!!

looks good, If any of the Teen Titans are in there it'll be a game I need to get.

#33 Posted by CrimsonTempest (307 posts) - - Show Bio

Hooray for Wonder Woman wearing pants! And if there's a chance of seeing the Secret Six involved in this game, even better!

#34 Edited by Kal'smahboi (3482 posts) - - Show Bio

This looks good. Want to play.
 
Also, Supes sending somebody through the stratosphere? Greatest move ever.

#35 Posted by BatWatch (2364 posts) - - Show Bio

Wow! Batman sent Solomon Grundy fling sixty feet up in the air and through two walls? That's...stupid.

I didn't like MK vs. DC. The characters fighting styles felt wrong to their characters and... clunky.

#36 Posted by dewboy01 (1876 posts) - - Show Bio

monstrosity ever, yes!

#37 Posted by JusticeCovert (5 posts) - - Show Bio

@NightFang: I believe the costumes are actually new and being designed by NetherRealm Studios.

#38 Posted by Gambit1024 (9890 posts) - - Show Bio

I hope Martian Manhunter's in it. They snubbed him pretty hard in MK vs DC.

Just standard policy...if there's an official news thread, that becomes the new discussion thread even if there's a user-made one. Sorry about that.

That was a bad year of games for me. I bought both Justice League Heroes and Superman Returns. I wish I hadn't bought either.

And this looks really cool! The trailer's frickin sweet! I'll be interested to see more info on this.

@Lvenger: I actually enjoyed Superman Returns. It wasn't a good game by any means, but I managed through it and it was alright. The combat needed more work but the flying mechanics were near perfect.

@Recoil1985:

Honestly though, I liked the concept of MvC 3, but the roster was horrible, it was severely lacking in modes and was had completely broken online capabilities. Oh and not to mention, Capcom's usual garbage with an "Ultimate" version 2-3 months after...

@sethysquare: X-Men Origins: Wolverine seemed to be the only exception. I never played the full game, but the demo was tons of fun.

#48 Posted by Lvenger (18256 posts) - - Show Bio

@Deranged Midget: Combat, mission structure and variety, graphics, voice acting and other things needed work. But I agree with you that the flying mechanics were near perfect. It was cool tearing through Metropolis with the superspeed effect and the controls worked well. Even better on the Xbox 360 I've discovered since I bought the game for the original Xbox. And Superman's powers were cool and easy to switch between as well as your aim being to protect Metropolis from destruction as at the end of the day, Superman is nearly invulnerable so nothing can really hurt him.

Seriously guys this is going to be a more badass Mortal Kombat vs DC. I think it will be better than Marvel vs Capcom 3.

Not hard to accomplish. The game wasn't that great.
