Do you still have links to those profiles? They were interesting, and a decent chunk of the cast is returning.

Part 1
Part 2
Part 3
Part 4
Part 5

Then the DLC: Lobo, Batgirl, Scorpion, Zod, Martian Manhunter, and Zatanna.

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.

The best NRS player in the universe thinks Canary is the best character in the beta and Superman was only the best character in IJ1 a for like one patch I thought?

Technically already revealed, but it probably is her gameplay vid.

Star Sapphire would be the most appropriate, not that she will be in.

Swamp Thing looks pretty great but I gotta laugh at his growing leaf wings in his victory pose. I guess someone on the team really missed Hawkgirl?

I honestly don't remember you might be totally right. I just recall Supes still being considered top tier after his nerfs even if he wasn't winning premier tournaments.

Yeah Superman changed from Top 1 with a bullet to "merely" top tier. Like, Martian and Flash were better pound for pound but Superman was still a threat against everyone.

Martian Manhunter was so loving ridiculous. He had teleports, grabs, insane reach and power with his trait, braindead combos, projectiles. Technically MM is like "omega level" on par with Shazam and Superman in comics but man he was crazy.

If anything should be toned down it could be the freeze breath on Superman or at least his trait cooldown.

So cheetah and catwoman, 2 catwomans!!

Also a bit from story mode, catwoman in league with gorilla city? sure. Catwomans face doesn't seem "final" especially with canary and ivy in that same trailer.

based on how improved superman, wonder woman, and supergirl's faces eventually became over a month or so, I'm not worried. NRS made huge leaps from MK9 and Injustice 1's body types and faces to what we got with MKX, and Injustice 2 looks like they're improving even further.

That being said I expect Catwoman's face to be remodeled because she looks like she's 60 or something.

I started playing the injustice story mode again last night and the green lantern section was just him saying Beware my Power! over and over again. That grab is ultra horseshit.

Is cheetah going to be our Mileena analogue? Cuz then I'll be forced to play her...

I really would have thought that the two botanical-ecoterrorists and the two feline-females would have been alternate costumes of the same moveset, just like Flash/Zoom, Supergirl/Powergirl, and Hal/John were confirmed to be. We don't see a ton of gameplay in those trailers, but if they are clones NRS is working pretty hard to hide it. We'll have to wait and see how the two ice-guys and the two crazed-villains-who-employ-hallucinogenic-gas shake out.

gotta save something for the inevitable Watchtower streams this week. I'm guessing both of them will be next to receive playthroughs while Catwoman gets put back into intensive care to fix her awful face.

Cheetah is def the Mileena archtype minus that goddamn teleport.

What? Booster Gold's been playable in plenty of games. Why, he was playable in Injustice with both green AND yellow variations.

Footage of the mobile game....so, this is a thing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Npv3OIV8bo8

Scarecrow, Green Lantern, Cyborg appearances, but some of the other characters look outdated so maybe this is an old build? Either way Scarecrow does NOT look like anything I imagined. Thought he'd be closer to the Arkham City variant as opposed to "clayface jack skellingten" which is godawful.

It's nice that this one looks much more like a game than the previous Netherrealm mobile titles. Will make unlocking costumes much less of a chore, though lord knows I spent enough time trying to unlock Mad Scientist Bray Wyatt in Immortals.

Finished my playthrough of the Injustice campaign again. Holy heck did I ever forget how to play. Pretty much cheesed my way through the whole thing, but only lost 3 matches, which I guess is good. Beat Superman first try by spamming forward 2,3 like a champ.

Anyways the game feels really clunky compared to MKX and I hope it's more like the latter. Has anyone played the beta and gotten a feel for it yet?

That kind of makes sense but after Swamp Thing do we really need 2 tall naked slime monster things. Would be a waste considering what a bang-up job his design was like in Arkham Knight.

Was Scarecrow ever good in a straight up fight? I think he only has fear gas going for him. Doesn't even have "shoots gud" abilities that seem standard to most batman villains.
