Injustice: Gods Among Us
Injustice: Gods Among Us' Fifth DLC Character is Martian Manhunter

NetherRealm has confirmed the fifth Injustice: Gods Among Us DLC character from Evo 2013 today, putting all of the theories to bed. As suspected, it is indeed J'onn J'onzz himself, Martian Manhunter.

Coinciding with the release of Martian Manhunter is a new Green Lantern skin, which introduces one of Lantern's alter egos, John Stewart. In the game the current Green Lantern is Hal Jordan.

A new video showing Martian Manhunter and John Stewart Green Lantern going toe-to-toe was released at Evo 2013, showcasing the green-skinned extraterrestrial hero and his stretchy appendages. No date has yet been set for Martian Manhunter, but you can assume he'll cost 400 Microsoft Points, and probably won't be part of the Season Pass.

A new Ame-Comi skin pack is also on the cards for Injustice: Gods Among Us on July 16th too for 240 MSP, adding new outfits for Catwoman, Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman. Check out the Martian Manhunter vid and Ame-Comi skins below.

And with one video, all this Justice League nostalgia comes rushing back.

Kind of disappointed with this announcement...Would have preferred to have seen Plastic Man as DLC and Guy Gardener over John Stewart...But I'm just the minority here...I would have preferred new costumes for characters that haven't got many like Killer Frost or Sinestro...

At first it confused me why MMH would be added to the roster, but then after a bit of time I started to warm up to the idea. That was until I just watched the trailer. Never thought I'd say it but I hate the way MMH seems to play in this. It's good he's combo heavy, but it just doesn't seem to be him, also his super move is terrible. I know I said the same about Zod who I hated to play as. NR has really just cut & pasted the last 2 characters.
I know I seem like another troll, but this is my opinion. I am a huge comic fan & NR has done well tieing it all together for the fans. But with Zod & now MMH, it kinda feels like they are phoning it in.
Would like to see some more B grade characters or a few obscure ones.

Many people bought the first season pass because they were hoping for him, and he was probably the most anticipated character. They release him after and make more of a profit, I feel bad for the people who bought it.

@11, yeah there's been absolutely no love for Black Adam, Shazam, Frost and Sinestro. Hell, even Ares & Green Arrow are kinda lacking. They put too much emphasis on WW, Catwoman, Harley, and Batman.

@6 Plastic man would be awesome, but Guy Gardner would get taken out by 1 punch from Batman :P more 80's Justice League characters would be nice.

@11 Yeah its kinda weird that in MK versus DC they called him Captain Marvel but essensially the same people are now Netherrealm Studios and his named in now Shazam. What I always thought was Shazam was a wizard(with an awful Shaq movie lol) and Captain Marvel was a kid named Billy or something who Shazam gave the power to become a superhero by saying the wizard's name. Clearly two different people. Any DC pros out there please let me know if Im right or not. Was more of a Marvel reader in my day than DC but will defo be getting this game after some bills are paid. Still holding out on a DC/Marvel fighter. Make it happen somebody!!!

Looks good. But still hate the fact that the characters get up to fall back down at the end of a match :/

@15 His name is Shazam now, DC decided to name him that. MS. Marvel is now called Captain Marvel in the Marvel universe.

He should've been on the disc, but at least they're adding him eventually. Looks like Dhalsim from Street Fighter with his limbs! Can't wait. The DLC released so far has been sort of weak except for Lobo, in my opinion, but if that leaked second wave is true I'll happily buy the Manhunter and Red Hood. Hope we get a date soon.

I hope that they release some sort of game of the year edition with every character and such. That would be awesome.

And finally! Martian Manhunter!

how am I just finding out about this now? W/e my prayers have been answered. finally Martian manhunter. Now I would still like to see red hood (Jason Todd), firestorm, and etrigan but #Yolo MM was definitely the one i wanted most.
PS #6 you want plastic man? why? do you know something about him that I don't? cuz when I think of plastic man i think of DC's biggest fag.
And #7 you think his supermove is terrible? I think it's the most creative one Ive seen in a long time. I guess it does kinda have elements similar to that of Ares, Aquaman and Green Lantern but still. That said I agree with you about Zod. Im good playing as him (probably one of my best characters) but his moves are the same as superman's. Not to mention how he, Hawkgirl, Shazam, and of course Superman have almost identical supermoves.
