And finally, who is the character teased at the end of the video? Well, if you didn’t already watch it you should! But if you haven’t, or can’t at the moment then here you go. The character teased at the very end is Martian Mahunter!

Martian Manhunter. Is he the next DLC character? Guess we’ll have to wait and see.

On the one hand it makes sense to add Scorpion to Injustice, since Netherrealm Studios created Mortal Kombat, so throwing in one of those characters in here doesn’t seem completely out of left field. On the other, this is a DC game and I can definitely understand people wanting it to remain DC. They did already make a video game with DC vs. Mortal Kombat characters, after all. My personal preference would be for it to remain DC oriented, but since this is a DLC character, then it’s really not that big of a deal to me. I do think his combos look cool, as does his super. And the game itself is still incredible. If you haven’t bought Injustice: Gods Among Us yet, do yourself a favor and get it! You can get a great deal for it for any platform on Amazon right now.
