I'm still hoping for Static Shock or a Beastboy.

Even though the chances of them being in this game are the same as Crash appearing in PSABR.

:(

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.
I wish, but unfortunately this isn't the case. The camera angle is different in both videos; you get to see behind the other side of Sinestro in Monday's video, where Mars is visible. Earth is present in both (look in the background when the meteorites crash together).

You have multiple robins through the ages.

Dick Greyson (Nightwing)
Jason Todd (Red Hood)
Tim Drake (Red Robin)
Stephanie Brown (Batgirl)
Damien Wayne (Current Robin)
no one say anything

If we get another Robin it will be Damian because he is going to be in the Injustice comic. Here's my now-standard "where we are at with the roster" post:


We know there will be more than 24 in the base game. My bet is on 28 or 30.

Here is where the roster stands right now:

Characters traditionally Heroes
Superman
Batman
Wonder Woman
The Flash (Barry Allen)
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
Aquaman
Cyborg
Green Arrow
Nightwing
Shazam/Captain Marvel
Hawkgirl

Characters traditionally Villains
Lex Luthor
The Joker
Harley Quinn
Bane
Catwoman
Solomon Grundy
Deathstroke
Sinestro
Doomsday (Probably Playable, Definitely Fightable)

Characters Probably In Via Magazine Leaks (Shazam, Sinestro, and Aquaman all previously part of this same leak)
Raven
Black Adam
Ares

So far that means we know 20 characters for sure, probably 23.

Others highly rumoured include Captain Cold, Martian Manhunter, and Damian Wayne.

Other, less solid, possibilities are Gorilla Grodd, Ocean Master and Dr. Fate.

DLC is also confirmed for this game.

Not all of these characters have appeared in the comic and I doubt all of them will. However, all of the characters in the comic have thus far been confirmed for the game other than Lois Lane (who isn't a superhero) and Damian Wayne (which is partially why he is "highly rumoured").

The characters not-yet-confirmed that I personally still want to see are Static, Dr. Fate, Martian Manhunter, and Booster Gold.

Mirror Master's in the comic, but I doubt he's going to be playable. Also, I'd take Grodd (I'm still angry about this!) and Dr. Fate off the "less solid possibilites" list. Grodd's model is way too big to be playable, and Dr. Fate is simply a low-detail background model in the Hall of Justice stage.

They could make Grodd more hunched over when fighting to deal with the height issue. I think it could work. His model is more detailed than the stage transition characters and not just ripped from some other game. Plus we already know Doomsday is fightable (at the least) and is similarly a background character in the Fortress of Solitude. For all these reasons I would say Grodd still has some chance.

Dr. Fate's old JSA costume is definitely on display in the Hall of Justice stage but Boon has given lots of Dr. Fate hints in the past that make me think he may still have a chance.

And yeah, Mirror Master just appeared in the comic this week, forgot about him. I think they'll probably kill him in the story as motivation for Captain Cold to come on board though.

I keep forgetting that Kilowog has a character model; obviously he isn't going to be playable, but perhaps he's featured in a stage?

I wanna see Monsieur Mallah with the Brain. Would be cool if he cradled Brain in one arm as he fights (mainly using military weapons like assault rifles), and then for a stance change, he puts Brain down and uses both arms while Brain cannot move but can shoot projectiles from wherever he was placed on the stage with a button mapped to him. When you want to change back, putting the input for stance change near Brain would have Mallah pick him back up...

...won't happen :(

Yeah I wouldn't be surprised to see an Oa stage with him in it.

Is it just me or did it look like Sinestro was winning that whole match? Like man Supes was playing punching bag for a long while there
If they'd show lifebars it would look like Sinestro took 300% life from Supes.

I'd prefer a real lifebar matches. At least we'd see the damage of the moves.

Hawkgirl looks like she's slow heavy hitter on the ground and quick character in the air. Am I seeing it wrong?

Sub-Arrow looks too good as always.

I really like Hawkgirl. She is what Thor supposed to be in MVC3. Hammer Throw, Level 3, etc

I think Thor level 3 would be like Hawkgirl. Thor would grab opponent and send him to the sky and slam his hammer on his opponent's head. He would summon all of lightning power and give a final strike toward the opponent. Opponent would be send to the ground with hammer and huge flash of thunder and lightning occurred. Too bad it didn't happens.

Man, that Hawkgirl vs Green Arrow fight was as one-sided as can be.

Nice matches though. Loved the transitions for the Hall of Justice stage.

Arrow even has sub slide into projectile.

Op I tell you, Op.
You can only do that twice though--as it looks like it's the stun arrow.

Here are his arrow stats:

Standard Arrow: These arrows are easy to use but deal low damage. As with the other arrow types, you can charge these projectiles by holding the trait button and still move around while doing so.
Starting count: unlimited

Stun Arrow: These arrows temporarily disable opponents, letting you link together combos that would otherwise be impossible. Sanchez recommends them for pro players who can make the most of Green Arrow's other techniques.
Starting count: 2

Ice Arrow: These arrows are basically a supercharged version of the stun arrows. The freezing effect holds opponents in place longer, though a low capacity makes them more costly to waste.
Starting count: 1

Fire Arrow: These arrows deal extra damage on contact over time. Sanchez recommends the fire arrows when you're first learning this character, because they deal good damage even when blocked and can be fired with minimum effort.
Starting count: 3

The arrow limit is only for the loaded arrow.

You can do as many ice arrows in a match as you want, but you will have to load 1 each time, when you load a fire arrow, you can use it 3 times before you have to reload it.

Nice. Wonder if "starting count" means he can gain more with some slow "self" special.

Edit:

Oww. So that's how it is.

Really? I thought they were limits. Maybe he is OP after all. Would've been more realistic if he had arrow limits, as he commonly runs out of arrows in the comics.

Not Metallo, possibly an enforcer of Superman though? Idk.
Superman builds robots?

Times have changed.

Last one from me. Real "Fuck meeeeeeeeeee!" moment.


Edit:
Wow windows in the background buildings explode from the blow impacts. Cool!

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.
Oh got it haha didn't think of that

Surprised to see that Darkseid and Doomsday are stage hazards / background characters. Maybe they will just serve as story mode bosses?

The videos are up on DC's website.

The first 2 weeks of the BA, the videos were encoded at 60fps, but last week, and this week are only 30fps. It sucks.

I think the stage transitions are pretty cool. Not entirely sold on the actual environmental based attacks though.

Bizarro would be a neat playable character too. He'd be clumsy and stuff, would be fun. Though his chances are low...

The best stage interaction is knocking people at Doomsday, he even gets in a dizzy animation for a little while after.
