Injustice: Gods Among Us' Next DLC Character is Confirmed as MK's Scorpion with a Vid

Warner Bros. and NetherRealm have today confirmed that the third Season Pass character for Injustice: Gods Among Us will indeed be Scorpion from Mortal Kombat, in accordance with the leaked schedule for the four DLC fighters. So far, Lobo and Batgirl have been added to the game's roster.

Injustice's particular version of Scorpion has been designed by Jim Lee, co-publisher at DC Entertainment, who talks about the legendary Mortal Kombat character with NetherRealm's Ed Boon, co-creator of MK, in the new trailer below.

In the vid you'll see early concept art of Scorpion's look for Injustice: Gods Among Us, before the in-game reveal in which he fights zombie Superman. Oh, and there's a brief tease at the end too. Martian Manhunter?! Rumours persist that the next Season Pass character will be General Zod.

Scorpion will be coming soon to Injustice: Gods Among Us for 400 Microsoft Points, or as part of the Season Pass.

Here's the thing, I completely agree that the DLC characters so far are a complete joke... except for Scorpion!

I mean who here even knew about Lobo, Zod and Batgirl (Do we really need a female version of every super hero?) let alone give a crap about them?

I may actually buy Scorpion separate and skip the season pass.

You have all of dc's characters to choose from and you instead do scorpion... Not cool :-/ there's easily 30-40 better choices at least.

Looks like another great character. But I would be soo happy if after this, nether realm did a game like this, but with Marvel characters. I know it will prolly never happen with MvC being so successful, but would be so amazing to have it happen.

First game of thrones last night and now this. It's the start of a terrible week. Design is horrible on scorpion and it looks like he plays just like the normal version. I have the season pass and may not even bother downloading this. Horrible choice for a DC game with so many other great characters to choose from.

@9 MvC may be the hypest fighting game to watch in the tournament scene, but I don't think its that successful. The sales were average because it appeals to a niche market.

NetherRealm could make a great Marvel game, but getting the license is the problem here.

Was really hoping with all the disappointment displayed by fans when this info leaked, they would change this. Don't get me wrong, I love MK and Scorpion. But I own MK9 and can play as him any time. Really a missed opportunity for other great DC heroes or villains to join the cast. I got the season pass so I'm sure I'll play as him plenty, but this is a huge disappointment.

And it would make more sense for them to release Zod next week on the same day Man of Steel comes out.

This is why season passes need to stop, it's not the fact that DLC is been planned for before release, it's because they just churn it out without even asking the fans what they would like to see.

Season passes should be released after all the content.

When I first heard about Scorpion being one of the DLC characters I was pretty dissapointed. And even now I feel they should have brought another DC character. That said gotta give them kudos for the new look.

He looks very DC Comic-like in this. Heck I can even see him starting to appear in DC comics. That would be pretty awesome actually...

@15 : Or, another option is to buy season pass AFTER all the DLCs are out... Stop buying things Day One, for christ's sake. It's the best way to get screwed. Be patient and wait for the reviews. Then if all or some of the DLCs pleases you, there you could think of getting the Season Pass.

Also, don't blame Season Pass (which is a great way of buying DLCs at a lesser cost), blame the bad DLCs instead and, by that, I mean the developers who release bad DLCs.

OT : I kind of agree with all of you that are disapointed by that news. The DC Universe is full of characters and they already pick somone from another IP ? What the heck ?

Holy crap - scorpion has never looked so good, nice design DC.

Anyway didnt approve of the idea of yet another guest character in a NR game but its kinda a thing with fighting games these days and you know now i see him in action he looks awesome - he doesnt look half as out of place as i thought he would.

Seeing a lot of comments across the internet talking about how he has no place in the game - they are right but its the norm for fighting games so no idea why people are so surprised.

In fighting games over the last few years ive seen everyone from Freddy Kreuger to Spawn, Link to Ezio, Kratos and even Yoda show up in fighting game cross overs. Injustice was one of the few not to feature a "guest" as such i suppose it was a matter of time and the fact its a DC crafted design means i feel its a bit more authentic a mix but thats just my opinion.

Im more hyped to be honest about that massive Martian Manhunter hint right at the end of the video... he is the character practically everyone wanted as DLC. I dare say when he gets revealed people wont be feeling too pissed about the season pass so much

The coolest thing about this video is by far the Lanterns on the guys mantle.

After watching this video and seeing Scorpions new design, I don't think that adding him was a bad idea,he will probably rank 2nd after Lobo currently, especially if the last character ends up being Zod. If it ends up being Martian Manhunter, then the only weak addition in my opinion was batgirl, not because she is unoriginal but because there were many better options for another female character(assuming that is why she was chosen).

Also to the guy complaining about Zod, Lobo, and batgirl(seriously?) being unknown, please tell me this is the first time you have ever looked at anything DC related.

I have no problem with guest characters in fighting games if done right. Freddy for example was never done in a fighting game before and was so weird and unique that we were all just curious to try it. The problem I have with Scorpion is that I can pick up MK9 and play him right now, so why should I be on the edge of my seat waiting to download him when I have actually already played him many times before. It's like when CoD makes you by new map packs but gives you some recycled ones from previous installments instead and expects you to get excited to pay for it again. You can't help but feel a little ripped off. If they actually did a "new" guest I don't think there would have been as much uproar about this. After this disappointing season pass they better do another of characters that people actually want.

Why would they add scorpion?..

Its a DC game that they stated wasn't going to be related to MK at all.. Fucking idiots.

Of all the people in the DC UNIVERSE they could have had

Also there's people saying zod, batgirl and logo are bad... Atleast it makes sence that they are in the fricking game!

When will people understand that Scorpion is basically the mascot for NetherRealm as well as being Ed Boons favourite character it doesnt surprise me one bit that hes in the game. Also is that Martian Manhunter in the last 5 seconds of the trailer?

@30 Just because it's Boon's favorite MK character make it any more right to add him in the game. This is suppose to be about DC, not MK! Mario's the mascot for Nintendo..does that mean he needs to be in a Zelda game too?!

Love Jim Lee's redesign! Also, Martian Manhunter...

I guess Zod will be released the same week as Man of Steel?

First off Scorpion looks pretty awesome even though I didn't want him in the game. Second the creators of the game need to start going ALL OUT on these specials because some of these including Scorpions are starting to feel half-assed. Lastly, I swear to god if they don't add Martian Manhunter after that little teaser this game goes to shit...period.

@31 you wouldnt believe how many cameos mario has made in zelda games, so that was possibly the worst example you could have given...
The injustice story is already kinda fucked up with the whole alternate reality shenanigans, so its not completely stupid how scorpion magically ends up in the DC universe.

Folks Scorpion is free!! Yes you heard me he's free. He's part of the compatibility pack 3 with the Doomsday Skin. He doesn't use the season pass at all!!

GAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY. The most disappointing game for DLC ever. And I've played COD so that's saying something. They could've done so much. It could've been amazing with Martian Manhunter or Firestorm or the fricken Calendar Man but no. [sigh]

Is it just me, or are people wanting Sub-Zero as well now that Scorpion is in?
