Bane and Lex Luthor have both been confirmed for Injustice: Gods Among Us in this month's issue of @Gamer Magazine.

Bane is seen with his Venom tubes that have been a staple of his character since his first appearance in 1993. Bane is known as being the man who broke Batman's back with his abnormal physical strength and is known to have extremely high intelligence, be an expert in hand to hand combat and also being an expert strategist.

Lex Luthor is seen in his Warsuit which was built on Apokolips, it gives him super strength, flight and even a force field, which put Lex on an even playing field with Superman.

Aww Netherealm, you spent so much time giving everyone new looks, but the person who needs a makeover the most (Bane) still looks lame.

This is wrong. Drew Grimey only plays Marvel.

Lex was expected but Bane -_- *sigh* i guess cause of his HUGE Success in the Dark Knight Rises that he had to be in.

But plz no more Batman Fighters. What about Power Girl, Aquaman, Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy(i know i know i want the titans and i prefer Beast Boy over Animal Man) Blue Beetle, Sinestro, Doomsday, Martian Manhunter, Black Manta, Hawkgirl and for the love of God, and the Man LOBO!!!

thats all i like

Hooray I have been checking all day to see if this was gonna get shown. I work at Best Buy and we literally just got these magazines in today. Not only does it reveal Bane and Lex but it talks about the Story and shows a few screens. Overall a good read if your just popping in at Best Buy it's like a 6 page story.

Lex was in the first trailer?
And Bane looks lame maybe a lil bit more TDKR with the eyes and the rest of his head shown woulda been better.. Still waiting on that Joker gameplay

xxMarshy said on January 7, 2013 at 4:23 p.m.

Woah, the real Bane is in this game, Not the crappy Dark Knight Rises version? I may have to actually get this game now.

#11
SnakeX said on January 7, 2013 at 4:26 p.m.

Lex Luthor was a given, but we really didn't need yet ANOTHER Batman character when the roster size is only 24. 25% of the roster (6 out of 24) of a game revolving around the whole DC Universe is composed of Batman characters. Granted, Batman is by far one of DC's most prominent and popular superheroes but more variety is far more preferable. I feel like DC is squandering an opportunity to get more of their lesser-known characters into the spotlight.

Bruce Willis as Lex Luthor? OK, I'm interested. Yippee Ki Yay...

Kinda looking forward to setting bane in action

#14
AngrySteve said on January 7, 2013 at 4:29 p.m.

Just for the over analytical people. On the first image with Bane and Lex the magazine says "introducing the four newest fighters" they show Bane, Lex, DeathStroke and Catwoman so don't get your hopes up for anyone else just yet. The Joker is featured on the cover of the magazine and they do show the Green Lantern and Joker photo that we have all seen.

Bane is unexpected...and unwelcome for me. No more Bat-characters, come oooooon.

#16

They just need Scarecrow, Ra's, and Two-Face to fill out the "Every character in a recent Batman movie" category.

When I was growing up, Lex Luthor was Black.

J_Tier said on January 7, 2013 at 4:34 p.m.

@18 And before you were born...

Anyways, I'm torn over Bane's inclusion. I guess I'll just wait to see how he plays and what separates him from Grundy. So many Bat-family characters, but I suppose that's okay...as long as there aren't more.

Or actually, now that I think about it, just add Poison Ivy (the Swamp Thing Teaser was actually for her, obviously), Robin, Ra's, the Penguin, and Two Face and you've got a perfect "Every Character in Arkham City" roster.

Hmm interesting, glad to see Lex Luther but im honestly not a fan of Bane, i kinda feel like his appearance in the TDR was the reason he's in this game. Oh well im sure Batman fans are glad he's in regardless.

Bane....lame..More Batman characters...lame. Nice to see Lex though. Now, Aquaman, Static, Sinestro, CAPTAIN COLD and Darkseid please.(Oh and Zantana, Beast Boy and Raven perhaps??)

#36
NyuBomber said on January 7, 2013 at 5:18 p.m.

@29 Darkseid will probably end up as an unplayable boss, if he's in.

Bring on Robin and Poison Ivy now.

#39
AugustAPC said on January 7, 2013 at 5:33 p.m.

Granted, there are a lot of Batman characters that would just naturally make amazing fighting game characters... but I want more variety.

A Batman fighting game would totally be cool as a sequel or spinoff.

Still... it's bitter sweet. Bane is definitely fighting game material... but then again, he's still another slot given to the Batman family.

Not really that stoked for Lex... but I guess there are worse choices.

Bring on Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy and Brother Blood!

#40
ssf4evo said on January 7, 2013 at 5:36 p.m.

Hopefully they'll have the Bane voice just like in Dark Knight Rises.

Still hoping they reveal a bonus round where you get to beat up commissioner Gordon and he farts randomly when you punch him.

Seriously though, i'm dying to see which comic book heroines they decided to picks, and how their skin tight leather suits will look like.

Black Luthor ftw.

bobthesupermonkey said on January 7, 2013 at 5:55 p.m.

@35 they already showed us it's Hal but John could be an alt costume.

#47
AugustAPC said on January 7, 2013 at 5:55 p.m.

@42
Word.
Raven is my absolute favorite comic book character. I've a mini-shrine built to her with statues and a framed comic about her :P.

I think with Nightwing and Cyborg (even though he's also affiliated with the JL now), that Raven, Starfire and Beast Boy would be pretty big crowd-pleasers. Brother Blood would make an excellent nemesis for them, alongside Deathstroke. I also think Trigon would make an excellent boss.

I'd also like to see Red Lantern Laira and Yellow Sinestro for Hal Jordan's rivals. Cerce, Ares or Dr. Psycho for Wonder Woman's nemesis. Gorilla Grod as Flash's nemesis. Also... Swamp Thing, Dr. Fate or Zatanna, Hawkgirl or Hawkman, Supergirl or Powergirl, Black Adam and Captain Marvel...

Man I could go on forever. I'm such a DC fanboy, lol. Just pleeeeease give me Raven!

#48
tekkablade12 said on January 7, 2013 at 5:56 p.m.

SHOGUN said on January 7, 2013 at 5:58 p.m.

Lex Luthor should be played by Jon Hamm from Mad Men.

#50
bobthesupermonkey said on January 7, 2013 at 5:59 p.m.

just pointing out 7 out of the 15 characters that have been shown are Batman characters (I'm talking about completely confirmed not just teased)

#51
WBK_ZER0 said on January 7, 2013 at 5:59 p.m.

@37 eh true but still that will be the slap in the face as a fan of darkside and dc comics but better that than nothing at all

#52
MrPavy said on January 7, 2013 at 6:03 p.m.

Just out of curiosity but why was lex luthor black in the 90s cartoons and in some animated movies but now hes white?

#53
knuxpyro56 said on January 7, 2013 at 6:13 p.m.

@401venom and augustapc yes Titans for life. I've been a fan way before the show and the show made it even better. I think Raven, Starfire, Beast Boy would be great fighters and since they are coming back to cartoon network with Teen Titans Go this could help em out

#54
maxs2d2ace said on January 7, 2013 at 6:15 p.m.

@53
yea but its more classy i guess to add the originals. personally i find this lex too boring. same goes for the old green lantern. they just seem to stereotypical characters(corporate white business man out to rule the world,and pretty boy lantern) the black green lantern and the black lex where far more interesting characters. IMO

#55
Silverfan said on January 7, 2013 at 6:47 p.m.

Maybe the title should be: "Batman Family Vs. The DC Universe"

#56
AugustAPC said on January 7, 2013 at 7:02 p.m.

@54

Yea, I feel you. The show was great, but they're better in the comics. Raven was kinda bitchy in the show, and she's really sweet in the comics. Also, the show kinda overshadowed Roy Harper and Donna Troy, though Speedy and Aqua Lad did make any appearance. Still... lots of important Titans left out of the show.

#57
Hrm said on January 7, 2013 at 7:13 p.m.

This game needs some Doom Patrol, if you ask me
Some Robotman or Negativeman action would certainly make my trousers a little tighter

#58
J_Tier said on January 7, 2013 at 7:23 p.m.

@59 Brain would be cool too. Imagine him being able to shoot projectiles but not be able to move, instead relying on Monsieur Mallah to move around the screen. They'd be a cool combo as a single character if ya ask me.

okamiking said on January 7, 2013 at 10:41 p.m.

So I hear people keep on asking for no more bat characters..... They do know Robin's been confirmed right?

Anywho..... Wheres that Aquaman?

#71
Aquaman said on January 7, 2013 at 10:54 p.m.

I don't have a problem with Bane but really hope he's the last Batman character. Aquaman, Black Manta, Karate Kid, Raven, Starfire, Black Canary, Mongol, Bronze Tiger, Lady Shiva, etc.

#72
GigaGilgamesh9 said on January 7, 2013 at 11:25 p.m.

You're joking right? Look guys it's mk vs dc 2 only with no mk! Where are all the GL characters? Where's Aquaman? WHERE'S MR. MXYZPTLK?!

#73
badjab326 said on January 7, 2013 at 11:36 p.m.

I'm ok with Batman & friends vs DCU. I mean Batman, and Teen Titans are pretty much the only DC chars I pay attention to. I would love to see Static Shock in this game though.

This game sux

Fenrir said on January 8, 2013 at 12:09 a.m.

If the do put in some Teen Titans characters (i.e Starfire, Raven, Beast Boy) I kind of hope its the other versions of the characters like Outlaws Starfire and Young Justice Beast Boy. Also some Outsiders and Young Justice characters would be awesome too.

#76
Deyrax said on January 8, 2013 at 12:29 a.m.

Bane is OK, at least he looks cool. Luthor doesn't deserve to be on the list. Bring on Doomsday already so I could smash that pussy Darkseid with him (if Darkseid will be in Injustice).

#77
Bloodknight said on January 8, 2013 at 12:40 a.m.

beast boy could be a real fun character to design (and play with). I'd imagine he'd be real-juggle oriented--launching his opponents and keeping them on their toes with his various animal forms.

I hope Deathstroke doesn't turn into Cable 2.0 and has a 1 button instant fireball/gun. That could ruin the game for me. Maybe if it's a half circle motion or a z motion forward (to make it less safe) it would be more balanced.

#78
Guybrush20X6 said on January 8, 2013 at 12:53 a.m.

All these Bat-villains. Makes me wonder how Justice League Unlimited would've turned out if The Batman hadn't called dibs on the entire Gotham cast minus Bats himself.

TheMAMBA said on January 8, 2013 at 8:27 a.m.

I agree with #3 Bane is cool but seriously enough with the Batman villains. What about the rest of the DC universe with all the amazing characters? Martian Manhunter would be sick. Or other characters from JL.

#88
RonnieTheClownPrince said on January 8, 2013 at 10:06 a.m.

I was expecting Bane and Lex, but it's still interesting to see them confirmed.

Some characters I'd really like to see, though, are Darkseid, Starfire, Lobo, Blue Beetle, Katana, and Black Lightning.

#89
CelestialCondor said on January 8, 2013 at 10:43 a.m.

Bane? Really? Please no more Batman characters we have enough already.
Lex Luthor on the other hand is not surprising. Hopefully the rest of the cast will be pleasantly surprising and not a Batman character.

#90
AugustAPC said on January 8, 2013 at 11:10 a.m.

@71

9? Where are you counting 9? There's 7 if you count Solomon Grundy.

But yes, you have a point. Batman family and Justice League characters are far too prevalent as of now.

Here's hoping to some more variety.

#91
JesseRobles said on January 8, 2013 at 11:32 a.m.

Thanks to the Dark Knight Rises, the inclusion of Bane will boost sales like crazy. I have no problem with all the Batman characters, because all the Gotham related comics are the best of DC.
If I were to ask for characters, I'd go with current ones. Like Starfire, Constantine, Black Canary, Mera, Swamp Thing, Animalman, Hawkgirl, Martian Manhunter, etc.
I love Supergirl, Huntress, Batgirl, Powergirl, but they wouldn't add something that remarkably different.

#92
WarioFTW said on January 8, 2013 at 12:12 p.m.

darn 2 characters i was hoping wouldn't make it in... now dont get me wrong, I love Bane and the Batman universe and I think he totally deserves to be in this game, but I agree with all the whiners (to a much less degree) that there are just too many bat characters in the game. BUT COME ON the batman villains are great!!! They should just make a Batman only tournament fighter in the future...
BUUUUT I really didn't want Lex at all. Sure He is an amazing villain and the power suit lets him go toe to toe with anyone, but I feel like the position is just more deserving to someone else.

#93
shinpichu said on January 8, 2013 at 12:31 p.m.

There are just waaaaaaaaay too many Batman characters in this game(There's 7 in total, counting Grundy, out of 15)i.

Did Netherealm want to make a Batman fighting game, but Warner forced them to make a general DC game? Cause with all the Batman characters, that's what it's starting to look like.

Oh, and Lex Luthor was obvious. No surprise there.

#94
GodPride said on January 8, 2013 at 2:04 p.m.

It makes sense to use characters in the mainstream media but the roster could have been more diversed.

Superman--------Wonder Woman
Batman-----------Catwoman
Green Lantern---Hawkgirl
Flash--------------Huntress[<Harley]
Green Arrow-----Black Canary
Nightwing--------Starfire
Cyborg------------Raven
Static Shock-----Power Girl
Blue Beetle
Deathstroke
The Joker
Lobo [<Bane]
Darkseid [<Solomon]

@95

It's likely the other way around. DC is probably influencing the character choices to reflect their hottest series in the media right now, Batman.

#99
100thMonkey said on January 8, 2013 at 3:53 p.m.

Batman is DC's biggest franchise, it would be stupid not to include quite a few from there.

But haters going to hate
