Former Teen Titans Join Injustice: Gods Among Us Roster

Former Teen Titans Join Injustice: Gods Among Us Roster

Fans at San Diego Comic Con get the first look at the new characters.

Upcoming fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us, developed NetherRealm Studios (of Mortal Kombat fame), just got two more iconic DC Comics characters added to its roster: Cyborg and Nightwing. The longtime members of the DCU join a cast of classic heroes and villains featuring Batman, Harley Quinn, Solomon Grundy, Superman, The Flash, and Wonder Woman. While they both utilize gadgets, Cyborg also has robot-related super powers, which should make for an interesting fighting style.

After getting his superhero start in the Teen Titans, Cyborg was reestablished as a founding member of the Justice League during DC's 2011 relaunch. Nightwing, once known as Batman's ward Robin, is also a former member of the Titans, as well as current crime-fighter and occasional Batman. Gamers might recognize him from his cameo in 2011's Batman: Arkham City. The two were friendly during their time as part of the Teen Titans, so it makes sense that they would join the cast of Injustice together.

The characters are currently playable at San Diego Comic Con, so those of you lucky enough to be there can check out the latest additions to the comic-inspired fighter. Injustice: Gods Among Us is set to launch for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U in 2013, and we'll be watching to see what other DC characters make the cut. My money's on Matter-Eater Lad.

This is REALLY turning into a sausage fest.

Need some more females in the roster, like, you know, 'mainstream' characters.
Raven, Hawkgirl, Powergirl or even someone like Megan (Miss Martian) or Artemus.

Just throw in PowerGirl and jiggly effects on her and watch the money pile up lol

Captcha: Water Gate. That is all.

You say that, but I don't think you really want to see what would happen if they tried. Because given the trend of Robin and Cyborg, the female would be Starfire. And given what I've heard about the current version of Starfire, that would be a step backwards from just not including any girls at all.

A friend of mine is going to be pissed. He does not like Dick Grayson.

Its a Wonder women are so under-represented in a game in this day and age.

Problem is, almost all of Raven's useful abilities are cartoon only. Her actual powers are... empathic, and that's about it. Like limited range heart-string tugging. Not exactly fight night material.

Hawkgirl would be good, but throw us a bone and give us Justice League cartoon version. That one kicked butt.

ALSO: NEEDS MORE DEATHSTROKE.

OT: Will not purchase. Nether Realm's fighting games are awkwardly bad, IMO. Did not like MK vs. DC, hated MK9, love Marvel much more than DC, why would I like this?

You write that like it's a bad thing.

OP: Funny how all the straying trains of thought going through my head just managed to focus long enough to exclaim FUCK YES, NIGHTWING.

Some fighter I'd like to see:
John Constantine
Andrew Bennett from I,Vampire
Dr Manhattan
Rorschach, I know the Watchmen one won't happen but I can dream
Powergirl
Atrocitus
Sinestro
Bane (and not with The Dark Knight Rises design)
Mr. Freeze (which would be a re-skinned Subzero)
Clayface ( Re-skinned Shang Tsung)
Raven

I'm not going to include: any of the fighter from MK vs DCU because we all know there going to be in it, But I pray that the Joker doesn't end up looking like Heath Ledgers version.

They haven't even revealed half their roster, so i wouldn't cry foul just yet
