His previously deleted tweets were of Green Arrow so that's who I'm betting for.

None of those dead characters are anything special to me although I would prefer Kyle Raynor over Hal Jordan, and was holding out hope that Beast Boy would appear.

The only dead character I really need back is Shazam. Really need those spinning atomic drops and sick thunderbolt combos.

He wrote Green Arrow a bunch in the first Injustice comic.

Shazam might not be back but Mary Marvel or CM3 both seem possible.

Looks like whatever was being revealed today has been pushed back to next week instead. However, there will be a Watchtower stream tomorrow which shows new gameplay and possibly a returning character.

New Watchtower gameplay stream today at 1 p.m. PST/4 p.m. EST. Maybe they'll send out more beta codes? They will likely reveal a new beta character to try; no guarantee of any new character reveals.

Little tidbit in the stream: hinting that Green Lantern's special equips may be different rings. Small chance we could actually get different color rings for his custom abilities. Forgot if Sinestro is dead or not but would make sense for a Parallax skin.

Black Canary is getting added to the beta by the end of the week. More codes should go out around then.

Since his beta vids are pretty good, here's some ridiculous Superman gameplay from Maximilian: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sbYIrPYwNtU

I know he's Superman but jeez, those 2 or 3 basic combos along with the lasers. Think maybe he should get toned down a bit but how the gently caress do you tone down Superman.

You don't. Superman was consecutively nerfed over and over in the first game and he was never worse than high tier. The way his moveset works he just can't be bad.

That said him being strong isn't a bad thing, hes incredibly fun to play as he can do everything.

*ed*

Also if you want beta vids please watch forever king or reo or something over people like loving maximillian.

So do you guys find him annoying or is it just because he's not as good as the top tier players? I'll admit I used to find him more entertaining than I do now, but I don't outright hate the man like everybody else seems to.

Personally I don't like how he's the "voice of the community" when hes nothing more than a shill. He will play NRS games as long as it keeps making him ad money on youtube and will drop it the second he can. I wish someone more respectable had his audience.

whew thank god the thread title is now validated. Swamp Thing looks like he'll be replacing Martian Manhunter on the "green shapeshifter" front, seems like a really cool character. Like the Noob Saibot poo poo he can do, he kind of reminds me of Glacius too? Slow plodding pace, teleports and shapeshifting.

All I need now is a surprise Etrigan the Demon.

Oh poo poo. Etrigan would be a fantastic choice for this kind of game.

Give him snarky-rear end rhyming intros for each character.

Have they shown any gameplays vids of Pam yet? I know they revealed her, but i can't find anything of her doing punching n' stuff. I am assuming that she and Swamp Thing are gonna be teamed up on the whole nature thing.

nothing for Bane or Ivy yet even though both are listed on the site. The biggest new reveals left are probably Freeze, Ivy, Scarecrow, Dr. Fate, Firestorm, and Cheetah.

The 9 DLC characters, one of which includes a loving MK character, hasn't been hinted at yet. I'm still betting on Spectre, Etrigan, Shazam, Prometheus, Terra, and Constantine.

The MK character will probably be Sub-Zero, after Scorpion was in the last one.

Also I'd expect a Rock-version of Black Adam since he's signed on to play the character in some DC movie, and any chance to bring in The Rock should be taken imo.

I'd love it if they did Shao Kahn for the guest character, since he hasn't been playable in the latest MKs.

Shao Kahn is too powerful honestly. So naturally they need to have his opening animation be him taking a 5UP3R pill and then killing Zod with one punch.

Not surprised to see NRS sticking to their guns in making Superman the best character in the game twice in a row.

It's too bad cool new interesting characters like Swampthang and Black Canary are going to probably just end up being *ok* but chances are you'll still just end up fighting Superman online every second or third match.
