    MK VS DC. Done right!! i’m for one is super hyped about added him to the roster. “THERE IS NO JUSTICE!”- Best quote ever.

  • DanteJones

    I was kind of skeptical when I first heard that Scorpion was gonna be in Injustice, but his outfit looks pretty fitting for DC to be honest.

  • Brion Valkerion

    Jim Lee designing his costume for this was pretty awesome of them to do. That and yay Blackest Night Superman!

  • Skode

    That costume is amazing. Ed Boon is right – why did they not think of that design first?

    • d19xx

      Because they keep thinking of a universal design for a ninja so they can just change color and call it a new character….

  • XiaomuArisu

    Im actually surprised,never thought of a MK fighter in Injustice.

    • The Watcher

      its made by the same guys who made MK9 so why not? lol

      • XiaomuArisu

        I know.XD
        But did you expected a Scorpion DLC?

        • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

          Scorpion could easily be considered a creator’s pet. Ed Boon freaking loves him. They even share the same voice and Scorpion is always in the cover of games he is not important. He is kind of like Wolverine.

          • XiaomuArisu

            Same voice?
            I thought Patrick Seitz voices Scorpion?

          • SunOatBoatMatadorQuattro

            I meant the classic “Get over here!” from the games and the movies were made by Ed Boon.

        • DurableTomb

          I didn’t expect Freddy Kreuger to show up in MK, but there you go.

  • Tom

    I don’t like this new look. It’s like a bunch of thing around us influenced it, my first thought was the new Killzone catface guy with it’s cape…

  • Hanzo Hasashi del Netherrealm has come. Quit complaining, we could have had someone much worse like Hawkman or Matter Eater Lad.

  • Tonton Ramos

    So there is hope for Injustice and MM after all… hope he’s playable!

  • Kelohmello

    Oh man, I LOVE this redesign. This looks way better than his MK design.

  • The new costume definitely helps him fit in more and his play style looks sick.

  • NTaiyokun

    At least Martian Manhunter confirmed.

    • TheExile285

      Static would be great as long as they don’t screw up the design *looks at Raven…*

  • The Watcher

    “To hell with you!” Literally!

  • NightzeroAX

    Scorpion looks beast, Manhunter confirmed, now all I need is Static.

  • Sardorim

    I wanted another DC character….

    • TheExile285

      Me too. I hope this is a one time thing

      • DurableTomb

        I heard that Subzero will be showing up in the last four of the eight DLC fighters.

        • TheExile285


          Well… at least I like SubZero…

        • Haseyo

          Let’s not start the rumor train.

  • I… kind of want Jim Lee to take over as concept artist for the next MK. That Scorpion design is leagues above anything NetherRealm have come up with for the ninjas for the past several years.

    • Testsubject909

      Well. For one part.

      You can actually feel the SCORPION part of his name in the design itself.

      So I understand.

  • Testsubject909

    First thing that popped to mind. Not sure if it did for anyone else:

  • Laer_HeiSeiRyuu

    Ah hell I need this game

  • TrannyMagic

    he actually looks really good… it’s funny because I already know a lot of people were opposed to Scorpion as dlc but after watching that trailer I bet, just as people did with Batgirl, they switched their stance lol. I have no qualms with him being added but I was really hoping for Zatanna… hopefully in the future… :(

    • Ben Sylvia

      Nope, still don’t care for him.

      Never cared for MK. at all. This really doesn’t change that opinion.

      • But, since that is your opinion, then this case is moot.

        • Ben Sylvia

          Just making a point of showing that “lol they chenged their minds again after the gameplay” isn’t entirely true.

  • RichyGaming

    Now i’m motivated to get this game. But not sure if i’m going to stop playing BlazBlue Continuum Shift Extend any time soon.

    • TheExile285


      BCSE is a suberp game.

      But seriously, I want this game too. I’m personally holding off buying it on PS3 to see if they make a Vita version.

      • RichyGaming

        I’ve been following BB series since CSII :). (Btw I’ve got BBCSE on my Vita, funny thing is my D-pad is a little jammed so I can’t do 623 moves in peace, so I fight with both the D-pad and the analog stick). Same here, I’m waiting for a vita version as well because I need more Vita games in my case :L then again I might buy it for PS3 just because.

        • TheExile285

          I actually started with CSII too. I’m hoping that Vita versions of BB Chronophantasma and IGAU are made because those are the 2 fighters I want more than anything.

          I may buy both on PS3 though since waiting is hard, lol.

          • RichyGaming

            BlazBlue Chrono Phantasma is an exception. There is no way i’m not getting that on PS3. I never played BB on ps3 before and it looks so sick. I’m getting that game on PS3, I WANT to see its epicness FULL SCREEN!

  • TheExile285

    Part of me thinks this is cool…. the other part wonders why we are getting a MK character (yes I know MK devs made IGAU) in DC game when there are so many other DC character that could have been included.

    The costume does look nice

  • Sergio Briceño

    Liked every seconds of the gameplay. Except maybe for it’s super, not as bad ass as I expected it to be. But I think you can’t be as brutal if you wan’t to make it into DC’s super heroes/villains.

  • Vash bane

    I had a hunch he would be on here…. I mean he looks like the mascot when you boot up the game.
    on topic is it me or does he look like he fight better here than in his own game?

    • Haseyo

      They had to put him up against gods. Of course he gets that buff.

  • MrJechgo

    For crap sake, it’s just one guest, get over it people. We’ve gotten Kratos from God of War and Freddy Kruger in MK9 in place of other MK characters like Shinnok, Fujin and Bo’Rai’Cho, and nobody cared that much. How come Scorpion is that much hated?

    Sure, NRS could use other DC characters, but DC Comics have to approve the choices and sometimes they refuse. Sometimes they even impose characters based on certain events, like Zod for the Man of Steel movie.

    Finally, what other iconic DC characters can they add next? The roster is already filled with fan favorites…

    • RichyGaming

      Not a lot of people are complaining about Scorpion making an appearance.

      • MrJechgo

        You haven’t seen the other gaming news sites and message boards…

        • RichyGaming

          Seriously? That’s absurd. But then again, there’s always something wrong with everything.

    • SageShinigami

      Are you actually suggesting they’re out of characters? Here:

      Red Tornado
      Martian Manhunter
      Doctor Fate
      Black Canary
      Blue Beetle
      Booster Gold
      Dr. Light
      Professor Zoom
      Captain Atom
      Black Manta
      Static Shock
      Ra’s Al Ghul


      They’re not out of characters, and that’s WHY fans are pissed. Because Injustice’s roster is already not that large and one-sixth of it involves Batman characters. Then after making one of the DLC characters Batgirl, they decide to add SCORPION??


      • You act like Scorpion getting means they’re completely ignoring everything the fans wanted. Martian Manhunter is CLEARLY getting in

        • SageShinigami

          I’m acting like they had over a thousand characters to pull from and STILL found a way to annoy a bunch of fans. That season pass had a “free character” but if you don’t like MK then technically you paid the same as everyone else because you’re not even going to use Scorpion.

          • So, Scorpion was free with the season pass and people who aren’t going to use him are still mad? Sounds like they just want to complain. Sorry it’s not your dream roster. Most of those characters are probably no where near as relevant as Scorpion.

          • SageShinigami

            What are you even talking about guy? Scorpion’s famous but HE’S NOT DC. Nobody other than MK fans gives a fuck about him. A lot of the people who bought this game that have talked about it aren’t even fighting game fans; they’re DC fans. To them Scorpion is a fucking nobody.

            Also. People aren’t mad because he’s free. They’re mad because there’s only so much DLC this game can get before NRS moves on to another project, and to have this guy is a waste of a slot.

            I get that people are tired of fans complaining about businesses, but sometimes fans are just right. THIS, would be one of those times.

          • Well, you’re not right. That’s just your opinion. Believe it or not, a lot of MK fans also play this game. They don’t mind Scorpion at all. I don’t remember a concrete rulebook that said crossover games can’t have a third party. Boon strongly hinted that there will be a second season of DLC characters. Scorpion is one out of possibly 8 DLC characters. It’s just one character. Get over your buttanguish.

      • MrJechgo

        “Because Injustice’s roster is already not that large and one-sixth of it involves Batman characters.”

        *sees Ra’s Al Ghul in the list*

        • SageShinigami

          Figured someone would take the bait. Ra’s is mentioned because even yet another Batman character is preferable to an MK character.

  • Ben Sylvia

    Boring. Only good things about that trailer are the inevitable Black Lantern skins and Manhunter. Who really should have been in the base game.

  • Tee Niitris

    I like the simple “90s” design better. :P

    I’m surprised they didn’t “New 52” his outfit and call it a day.

  • artemisthemp

    Injustice just became DC vs Mortal Kombat 2 :P
