Well here’s something that’s ought to raise more than a few eyebrows. DC Entertainment and Warner Bros. have just announced Injustice: Gods Among Us, which is a fighting game developed by NetherRealm Studio, the people behind Mortal Kombat. The game features a number of iconic DC characters pummeling each-other for reasons that are unknown to us. The game looks like it would be fun in concept, this might be the fanboy in me that’s crying out but I when I see Batman kick Solomon Grundy through a concrete building, I have a critical system error.
Harley Quinn gets smashed by a car and lives to keep fighting? I guess everybody in this game has superpowers. I’m also not terribly trilled to see that the characters are wearing the New 52 costumes from the rebooted comics, not that I hate the New 52 comics, I just don’t think that DC had good enough reason to remake stuff that was already well established. But nevermind my ranting, it’s a topic for another day, perhaps.
