Not really how I see it. It nets you Arkham City Batman as a skin to play as. To me that skin is more valuable than zombie mode (since I care little to nothing for zombies in general), and I do not really care enough about about mini games to go for Red Sun Superman. I'll admit that Superman is awesome though and its really tempting, but I plan to play a lot more Batman than Superman so it just doesn't hold up. Especially when Superman's outfit is already good in my eyes. I dont care a thing for the Blackest Night Batman alt so its pretty much Walmart all the way for me.
Hey man, suit yourself. If you really like the Arkham skins then go for it. I just personally think more content + skins is better than just skins. Especially since the Arkham skins are not that far off from skins all 3 of those characters already have in the game.

Are we certain that is Grodd and not just one of his warriors?
We aren't certain of anything since that image is the only clear one we have of that character. Grodd makes the most sense though since it is doubtful, if they have a cameo like this, it will just be one of his warriors.

That stage might be filled with apes for all we know. I am just saying.

Also, with the arkham pack, I believe you get MKvsDC for free with it as the "extra content" with it. Does that sweeten or sour the deal? you decide.

Now that we've seen Hawkgirl, I wish Red Lantern Bleez was in this. Her look would really lend itself to Netherrealms aesthetic, and it'd be nice to have another female character.

I never liked her...thing she wore on her head.

The only suitable red lantern is Atrocitus.

According to the Injustice Facebook page Superman is beating Sinestro in the poll. Looks like tomorrow's gameplay will be the only thing we got for him, unfortunately. I hope Hawkgirl beats Ollie at least.

Sadly, it was to be expected. Thall v. Supes was perhaps even more of a mismatch than placing Wonder Woman against Harley.

Well at the very least it means Sinestro will probably get to dominate most of the fight, like what happened with Grundy and Cyborg.

Also, is it just me or does anyone else find the teeth in this game distracting, I'm not sure why, but its always the first thing I notice about a character in this game.

This boxart is just as bad as ours. Just a different kind of bad. The concept of characters walking towards you isn't terrible but the character choices are weird and the background just looks off.
Hal's pose is so silly looking. I have no idea what he's doing.

Much worse than the US.

It doesn't even convey that Batman vs Superman is the center of the story, Grundy and HQ are too minor to be on the box as they are. GL with random pose.

Basically a bunch of art put together without actual compisition.

Bunch of weebs in here.

Aquaman deserves to be on the US cover over Cyborg, but I understand why they went with him instead. DC's pushing the fuck out of Cyborg.

That is awesome looking. Waaaaaaay better than me seeing a cover with a clown and Green Arrow's corpse on it staring at me. Time to print a custom case it would seem.

My thoughts on the new fight videos:

Sinestro's super confirms there's a stage on Mars (we saw Mars in the background of it in Monday's video, but Earth here). Does this also inadvertently confirm Martian Manhunter? We haven't yet had a stage that doesn't have a playable character to represent it and I can't think of anyone else who would have a stage on Mars.

Hall of Justice stage looks great. Really love the Giganta/Atom Smasher stage transition. Darkseid is also part of a stage transition here, which pretty much confirms he won't be a playable character.

The last stage transition in the Fortress of Solitude is really cool too, which I hadn't seen before.

Hawkgirl looks really good, wish she won. Hard to say on Sinestro.

Wait, I thought that was the villain in Spider-man 3.
That's Marvel's Sandman, who is a Spider-Man villain. This is DC's Sandman, who was a member of the JSA. Different characters. Both companies have other characters with the same name too, like Captain Marvel (which is part of why he's now being re-branded as Shazam).

Hot damn, Hawkgirl has air combos. I'm intrigued. She lost, but I'm interested. Sinestro's the first character so far I was kinda 'meh' towards.

The Hall of Justice easily has my favorite stage transitions so far. I'm a little disappointed with the number of "throw opponent into the sky and smash them back down to Earth" super moves, though.

Hawkgirl looks fun. I got the feeling Sinestro is gonna be a very technical character and they didn't properly show him off.

I'm getting pretty hyped for this game. I know the inevitable GOTY edition with the DLC characters will be released later, but I dunno if I can wait that long.

I actually like the look of Sinestro's gameplay, but of course, I would have needed to see more.

Typical Superman, really.

Kinda the opposite over here. But maybe that's just my inner fanboy.

Well it has to be that way since the losing characters won't be coming back. So you wanna give them a good amount of screen time while you can.

Hall of Justice stage is my favorite so far. I like how both Sinestro and Hawkgirl play.
