Pros: Jim Lee redesign, Martian Manhunter tease at the end.

Cons: Picking Scorpion seems like such a waste when there's such a vast roster of DC characters to choose from and so many are in high demand. I say that as someone who loves Scorpion, too.

His power attack seemed a bit lack luster when weighed next to the jaw-dropping ones in the game, too. Honestly, I thought his victory scene was cooler. Oh well.

Nope. I'd spend way too much money on just about any other DCU character they could think to include, this is just disappointing.

So much for that lie about there being no MK characters in upcoming DLC.

#4 Posted by NixonV3 (29 posts) - - Show Bio

This really angers me. Before this game was created they said the roster would be diverse and yet we get nothing but batman characters, the games called gods among us not batman and pals. Now we lose another dlc spot to scorpion, who I'm sure wont be abused by the millions of spammers who already inhabit the servers. This just proves they don't listen to fans or read comics because if they did we'd get people like animal man or booster gold or someone other than a batman character but no now we are getting this red hood and subzero so thank you netherrelm

Agreed.

Oh my sweet lawdy...

THAT WAS EPIC! I mean yeah, it's a waste of a character spot as we could've had another DC character tossed in but damn dude! He has a WICKED power set, far better than what was showcased in MK9. I can't say that I'm disappointed and a Black Lantern Superman suit? Colour me impressed.

Does anyone else feel like the Martian Manhunter tease at the end was added because they knew this would upset comic fans? It's almost like saying, "Yes, we know you don't want this character, but chill because you'll get one you've been annoying us about next, okay?"

I think it's great that they had a DC artist design the MK guy. Makes it feel well-balanced.

it looks cool but I royally suck at fighting games....I made it through the story mode and some of the Star Labs stuff and tried one match of multiplayer where I didn't get a single hit in and that's where I stopped playing....these types of games are no fun when you suck as much as I do at them

i wouldn't be surprised if it's just a eff you. MMH fans have been very vocal about J'onn's exclusion and Ed loves trolling people. He's getting a little vengeance. When Zod is announced next, MMH fans will be pissed and Boon will be laughing his ass off, counting his money.

@avenging_x_bolt: I'm aware the leak has been accurate thus far and Boon messes around on Twitter, but if this is really just trolling it'll be a huge disappointment.

@danhimself: LOL!! Looks like we're in the same boat, bro. I've never been a fighting game guy, but this game was too pretty to pass up. Like you, I finished the story, I'm working STAR Labs now, and my online record is something like 7-9283 LOL!!! XD It's horrible, but I figure you only get better by beating the best. I'm pretty damn proud of those seven wins :D

I like everything about him, tho his Super Move could have been more eventful. I'm still really hoping Black Canary and Captain Cold will make it in

#16 Posted by Outside_85 (8188 posts) - - Show Bio

Pity we cant just paint him green and pretend he's the Atomic Skull.

#17 Posted by Meizzner (26 posts) - - Show Bio

@or35ti: if the leaks are true the next five are Zod/MMH/Red Hood/Powergirl/Sub Zero

#18 Posted by Birthright (142 posts) - - Show Bio

So I guess Zod, Sub-Zero, Martian Manhunter, Power Girl and Red Hood are also going to be in the game. I don't mind Scorpion and Sub-Zero in the game to be honest. \

Also anyone else think they are foreshadowing DC vs. MK 2?

#19 Posted by Ganthetsward20 (687 posts) - - Show Bio

I hate that I cant shoose for my "season pass" which dlc I want to pass on, I dont want scorpion :/ or any mortal combat characters. Zod how is he going to be different from superman, the same can be said for power girl. Should have done someone like beast boy, swamp thing, zatana, constentien, and Doctor Fate.

This is actually a very good summation of how I felt.

I agree. I am absolutely terrible. I couldn't even finish the tutorial without having to skip because I couldn't for the life of me figure out how to do some of the combos...I felt like I was hitting the buttons but it wasn't doing what it said those buttons did. I am a little shocked I was able to finish the campaign, honestly.

I am liking the Jim Lee redesign for him. I agree that the slot should be a DC Character, but I assumed this would happen the second I heard Netherrealm Studios was doing this game. I figured wither Scorpion or Raiden would be involved somewhere. I do want to play Scorpion. Its funny they pitted him against Black Lantern Superman since if Scorpion was in the DC Universe he would have gotten a Black Lantern Ring

#22 Posted by Black_Claw (2919 posts) - - Show Bio

Damn, I was seriously hoping he'd do a fatality at the end. I can't wait to see Zod's gameplay.

#23 Posted by Aiden Cross (15562 posts) - - Show Bio

@danhimself: for this reason i'm not even attempting to play the game.

#24 Posted by Jonny_Anonymous (32918 posts) - - Show Bio

SO disappointed at Netherealm for doing this. It's like admitting that's they can't do anything unless it's Mortal Kombat, it's just creatively redundant.

no it isnt. they're just covering their a$$es as much as possible for the backlash. ed boon cant go 1 minute without fanwanking to MK.

#27 Posted by akbogert (3202 posts) - - Show Bio

@danhimself: I'm wondering if it's something obvious that I'm doing wrong. I mean, pretty much any combo involving two directional buttons (especially left/right or right/left) I am just outright unable to do, which makes me think that my interpretation of those commands is off.

Because, yeah, it's a really sweet game and I do want to unlock/complete a few of the characters' mission sets, and I can't for the life of me figure out how (same thing happened with MvC3 for me though, so maybe it is just fighting games for me).

  1. I wish I could actually play this game, when the hell is the digital version released? This is the reason I can't get in to fighting games beacuse by the time it's out everybody online is all ready amazing at it
  2. It's funny that even everybody over at Giant Bomb are pissed at Scorpion being added

Heh. I just am so confused. I can handle Ninja Gaiden and Catherine no problem, but a simple three-move combo foils me? Really?

Well that's your opinion. Honestly, this trailer has me excited because at the end with Martian Manhunter confirms Zod, Red Hood, Power Girl, and Sub-Zero. You may not be excited but I know I am.

It was on one of the first threads about upcoming Injustice DLC for this site. It was one of those "Injustice DLC Rumor" threads, and they had everything we've recieved thus far, including Batgirl, Lobo, and now Scorpion. Then right after that someone said something about how there was going to be no MK characters attached to the Injustice DLC, and a like was provided to the interview, or something like that.

Next character is going to be Zod, they where all leaked like 2 weeks ago.

a red lantern(atrocitus, rankorr, bleez, or skallox), midnighter and/or apollo, plastic man mirror master/captain cold;black manta, gorilla grodd, and etrigan . its a fun game but i will not get my own copy if i do not see any of these guys in there for future dlc . heck even a "mix-bag " character could be thrown in there (AMAZO) . maybe jsa costumes...?

#40 Edited by DCVibe (37 posts) - - Show Bio

Pass...

Sorry if I wanted Scorpion going against DC Characters I would have played DC vs. MK.

This slot and possibly Sub-Zero slot could have been given to Captain Atom or Black Lightning or Zatanna or Vixen or... I think the point has been made.

I'll wait for the next character but wonder if there will be new skins.

Me too; would've made sense. As for the actual announcement, I love Scorpion, but he just doesn't belong here... fresh moves or no fresh moves. Just as many others have said, with ALL of the characters they have to choose from, we waste a roster spot on an MK guy. Smh...

#43 Posted by BR_Havoc (1277 posts) - - Show Bio

So they expect me to pay for a recycled character with what looks like an identical move set just a new special and new design by Jim Lee? If I did not regretfully buy the season pass I would not of even watched the video.

What's the point of having Scorpion if he doesn't go Toastie on someone?

@danhimself: You have to practice, practice, practice! Fighting games take a lot of effort and can be no fun if you don't practice; that's why there's a PRACTICE option :-). Hope I helped.

#48 Edited by RoTheKid (252 posts) - - Show Bio

*Sigh* I was hoping that all of the rumored MK characters surrounding this game weren't true. It would have been great to have a diversity of DC characters in this game instead of the multitude of Batman characters in there. Also, I don't know about anyone else, but I felt that Green Lantern's game play wasn't that great. Seems like no one can get Green Lantern right in a game. The Power Ring is supposed to be the most powerful weapon in the DC Universe, yet, whenever I play as Hal, I feel weak. Admittedly, much of my hype for this game has been deflated because of poor character choices among other things. :-/

Ha, Boon loves trolling people, remember the Kano Transformations? and Ermac ? and Rain? and Scarlet? and Supergirl vs Wonder Woman? and Aquaman teaser?

But still pros to Boon he always add in those characters in later games (Unlike a certain company out there)
