Doomsday spotted on the Injustice: Gods Among Us arcade stick

Posted by SFilp • January 15, 2013 at 2:20 p.m. PST
Many readers have pointed out that Doomsday, a character rumored to be on the roster, has been spotted on the newly announced arcade stick that comes with the Battle Edition of Injustice: Gods Among Us.

This isn't a confirmation that he will be playable but it is very interesting that NetherRealm decided to put his portrait on this fight stick.

This is the first time we've seen any official artwork of Doomsday, a character that is known for killing Superman. Doomsday is a nearly mindless, berserk killing machine with no feelings or sentiments beyond his unfocused hatred, murderous rage and the sheer malicious joy of destruction.

If he turns out to be a playable character, it'll be interesting to see what kind of move set these traits may lead to.

Have a feeling he'll be the Goro/Kintaro of this game.

@Sfilp Didn't Black Lighting restarted superman's heart after Doomsday first fight with superman?

@2 Might not be an issue since they don't have to deal with fatalities.

Dat cameo..
You know when you are a real nerd?When you roll your eyes at people explaining Superman's death and return and laughing in the inside on how superior your comicbook knowledge is.I feel so alone...

If they explained how Catwoman could defeats Super man, is certain to make Doomsday playable like a normal char, its boring, more chars style Goro not please

Doomsday would be a good addition, he was what could only be described as a brute. He tore through JLA and killed Superman,as an adversary he was Supermans equivalent to Bane.

Doomsday possibly a final boss? I know next to nothing about the DC Universe so I'm not sure if he's relevant enough to play such a role but I reckon it's a possibility.

Why is Supes still around? For the retcon and that US Dollar.

@9 Sorry if it sounded like an insult I didnt mean it that way.
I was just realizing that as a comicbook fan I know more about the characters than casual fans.For example knowing every single origin story of Superman or knowing the individual histories of each of the four characters that have been a Robin.

to be fair, death and return of super man is one of the few death arcs that actually went somewhere, and it wasn't just like, oh, he'll be back next week like it was with Batman and Johnny Storm and Jason Todd and Joker and Captain America and Red Skull and Peter Parker and Juggernaught and Venom and etc. . .

Although, I have to say that the ElseWorlds [DC's What If¿] and other self-contained graphic novels are still awesome.

Has Alfred died and come back yet?

As far as I'm concerned, this is pretty damn hard evidence that this guy will be playable in this game.

CheeseCakez said on January 15, 2013 at 3:43 p.m.

The final boss is gonna be.... Galactus. Kappa.

Otter_of_Death said on January 15, 2013 at 3:48 p.m.

#2 is right. He's most likely going to be a boss or sub-boss.

@Sflip: Thank you for answering the question. I wasn't to sure. Im still catching up with Superman wasn't a huge fan. I rather Wallace West.

Well to be fair, Alfred died in Dark Knight Returns which is a future where Bruce Wayne is old.

Though my favorite death has to be Barry Allen. The way they brought him back was pretty damn good and it took them 23 years to do it. As for Aquaman, I think the only reason they brought him back was because Geoff Johns found a way to make him badass (see Aquaman series since the new 52).

I really need to read Justice League Dark. That series gives DC's magic characters a lot of needed love. Gotta be ready to throw down at least thirty bucks though so maybe next week.

#4 Are you a retard or what ? Doomsday not only killed Superman, he ripped entire JLA like they were nothing, he owned Darkseid with ease, go read on Doomsday before talking crap about him. He is the most powerful out of the roster right now, so I fear that would mean he is the boss of the game.

cnorw00d said on January 15, 2013 at 10:19 p.m.

Funfact: Doomsday can rape Goku as well.

EyePawd said on January 15, 2013 at 11:38 p.m.

For anyone who read Injustice #1 today, I think it's a high liklihood that Doomsday is somehow brought in to be the one thing that can take down a Superman that, in the Injustice universe, has created a Totalitarian state.

Batman clearly mentions Doomsday when talking about Superman in the beginning. It wouldn't surprise me if, in the story, Batman is somehow able to bring Doomsday into the picture to try and stop an out-of-control Superman who has cracked mentally after Joker murders Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen.

@SFlip

Justice League is ok, Action Comics is interesting, Batman and Robin is pretty good, Batman Incorporated started again recently and I really like the art in it.

Though I really have to recommend The Flash. It's been my favorite series since the new 52 started. The art, the coloring, the way the panels are layed out, how he integrates the title and credits into his full page art is just simply amazing. For that last part, this is the only example I could find off Google Images, but he does this in every title page for each issue and some of them I had to go back and read to actually notice it.

Sounds interesting.

I still don't know if I should buy this game :/
