Update: Raven hinted for Injustice: Gods Among Us by Official Xbox Magazine

Posted by SFilp • January 20, 2013 at 8:54 a.m. PST
Update: An image of Raven in OXM has been added to the story. Ed Boon has jumped on Twitter to state that while a character may be visible in story mode it does not necessarily make them a playable character. The description below seems to still confirm Raven, though.

It seems the Official Xbox Magazine wanted to jump on the train of hinting at characters in Injustice: Gods Among Us.

In issue 95, Raven is hinted as a playable character.

There's also an exclusive Injustice: Gods Among Us hands-on. New to Gods Among Us? It's one of those man-punching games, created by Mortal Kombat bods NetherRealm, and includes the pick of famous faces from DC Comics - Batman, The Joker, Nightwing, Lex Luthor, Bane, Wonder Woman, Catwoman and Superman, together with minor Justice Leaguers like Cyborg, Raven and Captain Marvel. Blood there is none, but punching there is much.

There's totally blood in that game! It may be not as much as MK but it's still there, look at the gameplay trailers.

they should add Starfire

ifidontwhowill said on January 18, 2013 at 8:01 p.m.

I really really hope all these characters that have been 'revealed' are actually playable. How big of a slap in the face would it be if half of them just made a small appearance in story mode? We need some confirmations and some gameplay trailers. We haven't even seen Joker and Green Lantern in action yet.

#33
miyodarius said on January 18, 2013 at 8:48 p.m.

Adding Raven will confirm my purchase

Still waiting to see a Lobo reveal, I am hyped for Raven though I personally think she's the best of the DC females.

Hadouken_Os said on January 18, 2013 at 9:26 p.m.

Need some reveal trailers. My poor heart can't take all this hearsay anymore, with Raven and Black Adam being hinted at but not seen yet.

Still buying it though.

#39
MALDA_IS_BACK said on January 18, 2013 at 9:38 p.m.

lol at the people who only like Raven cause of the Teen Titans show but I'mhappy for her being important the game.

I kinda want startfire for the drama between her and Nightwing since they used to be together.

Static for DLC ...... since I know he won't be in the game.

lol people thinking i was being sarcastic. Sarcasm fails with just normal text

#43
theshredder39 said on January 18, 2013 at 10:01 p.m.

#41 Well considering this game is following DC52 which is pretty much a reboot of the entire DC universe that technically never happened anymore, at least not yet anyway.

#44
ya_boy said on January 18, 2013 at 10:07 p.m.

Can't say I'm happy about this. I personally don't care for Raven and NRS is gonna make her look butt ugly just like the few girls already in this game.

#45
AugustAPC said on January 18, 2013 at 10:09 p.m.

#40

I like her much better in the comics than in the show. She was a little too bitchy in the show. She's so sweet in the comics. She's my favorite comic book character of all time... I just love her story. She's constantly f*cked with by her past and her inner demons (literally), yet all she wants to do is help her team. She endures their pain for them, heals them and has a unique and awesome set of powers.

They kinda messed her up a bit in Titans vol. 2, but she was still really cool... they just gave her a bit of a bitchier attitude, like she had in the animated series. But hell, she was still a teenager and was actually in school, having to deal with dumb teenage bitches on-top of her demon family and her team going through some pretty depressing stuff. So I think she's earned a bit of an attitude.

Sorry... I ramble. I loves me some Raven!

#46
Cinderkin said on January 18, 2013 at 10:09 p.m.

@ 43

Next time try "Another Titan, Great!"

OT: As excited as I am about this news, and please don't think I'm hating; but NRS has a horrible track record when it comes to the female face. The body is usually on point, but the faces are just awful. Again I loved MK 9, but seeing Kitana mask-less or looking at Sindel and Sonya I just cringe.

I still can't wait for this game.

This game is looking great. Didn't want to buy it but damn such a great roster thus far.

maxs2d2ace said on January 18, 2013 at 10:58 p.m.

awesome my second favorite titan next to beastboy. i hope they will add more females besides just 4.
sense black adam is kinda of confirmed i guess that makes static out,but i hope they will make him dlc.

#51
AugustAPC said on January 18, 2013 at 10:59 p.m.

I didn't think Sonya, Kitana, Jade or Sindel looked bad. Could have been better, but I didn't find them ugly.

The last thing I'm worried about are how pretty the faces are to be honest.

#52
Razberryclownsac said on January 18, 2013 at 11:08 p.m.

Wow, this would be a pleasant surprise. Now give me Swamp Thing. I really wanna see how he would play n this game

Maybe they could add in Apache Chief and give him Nightwolf's moveset.

What are Raven's super powers? I don't really know who she is or what she can do...

#62
MaverickHunterX said on January 19, 2013 at 5:34 a.m.

@JdotSweapA

This is from Wikipedia:

Empathy
Demonic Transformation
Astral projection
Teleportation
Flight
Levitation
Sorcery
Telepathy
Telekinesis
Energy Manipulation
Time Manipulation
Emotion Manipulation
Darkness Manipulation
Multilingualism
Experienced Hand-to-Hand Combatant

Overall her powers are demonic/magical in nature much like Shang Tsung.

#63
ABSOLute said on January 19, 2013 at 5:58 a.m.

I hope that this is true, and she makes it into the game as a fighter, not just appear as a background/story only character. I'd hate to wind up joining the 'Batman army'.

#64
JiCi said on January 19, 2013 at 6:19 a.m.

WOOT! Let's hope Tara Strong reprises the role if it's true ^_^

Now, if they can only add Starfire...

#69
FightDirty said on January 19, 2013 at 9:52 a.m.

I´ll be interested to see if this game sells well or not. It seems that unless you are a comic book nerd who´s been living in your parents' basement for 20 years you won't recognize half of the roster.

I don´t know who most of these fighters are, then again I've never been into comics. Still, the fact that really popular heros from the Batman/Superman universes are represented may be enough to get people to buy. I admit I have watched Teen Titans before so at least I know something about them.

Ex_Ein said on January 19, 2013 at 10:29 a.m.

Fu*k a female titan bring us the bring us Kaldur! bring us some god damn Changling!(if you don't know who changling is you're an 03er!) bring on some god damn Larfleeze!!

Would love to see more Teen Titans action!!!

Raven heck yeah nw this is great news! Never really got why people called it Batman and friends when every Gotham tied character has perfect reasoning as to why they got in but hey either way this game is gonna be great and I'm getting real impatient we need a new video

#76
Liberator said on January 19, 2013 at 11:54 a.m.

okay if they put AT LEAST two more female characters i might consider buying it...but i don't want yet another sausage fest!...

#77
DangerousBacon said on January 19, 2013 at 1:24 p.m.

Why is everyone crying about this game being a sausage fest? That didn't stop people from buying and enjoying Marvel so why should it be the case now? Skipping a game because there's not enough females in it is beyond stupid.

I don't get the hype for this game. It's just mortal kombat with reskinned characters and new moves.

#82
JesseRobles said on January 20, 2013 at 8:59 a.m.

Raven's design looks amazing (even from far away lol)! I only started reading comics 1 and a half years ago, so I never knew her outside of the Teen Titans show, which I didn't like. But I love her powers and design, so I hope this game introduces her in a great way and maybe we'll see her in the new 52.

#86
HyperViperNZ said on January 20, 2013 at 9:34 a.m.

@78
People did complain about Marvel being a sausage fest though. It just doesn't feel right when the gender balance has way too much of a ratio difference. A 60:40 male to female ratio is acceptable but not when it's a 80:20 ratio like UMVC3 or this.

#87
Snipeclips said on January 20, 2013 at 9:38 a.m.

@84

What ignorance? He's completely right, it is MK with reskins and new moves. Anyone denying that is ignorant.

But on that regard, I don't own MK, but I hope it becomes more unique than MK.

#88
Cammystrike said on January 20, 2013 at 9:47 a.m.

@88 There's no block button, so there's crossovers. That alone makes this an entirely different beast than MK.

I perfer Circe over Raven, but Raven will be a good character though.

Doktor42 said on January 20, 2013 at 10:14 a.m.

I don't even play fighting games that much anymore, but they just got my money if Raven's in it.

I'm assuming all the cartoon teen titans will be in, as it was a pretty popular series and that's what most people will be familiar with.

#91
MALDA_IS_BACK said on January 20, 2013 at 10:19 a.m.

Have you play the game no so how heck you know if is the same as MK but I played the game and is nothing like MK

#92
TsukiShiro said on January 20, 2013 at 10:28 a.m.

Raven would just be AMAZING! I cannot wait to see how she would play.

(Now Starfire would be the icing on the cake.)

#93
DangerousBacon said on January 20, 2013 at 10:29 a.m.

@ 88

Dude, it LOOKS like Mk but it ain't Mk. SfxT looks like Sf4 with Tekken characters but even those games are entirely different beasts.

Here are a few differences:
-No block button which heavily influences the footsie game and allows for crossups
-Characters have different walk speeds and dashes as compared to Mk9 where they were more or less universal
-Jump arcs are vastly different whereas they were universal across the roster in Mk9
-Every character has unique air normals unlike Mk9
-Some characters have access to air dashes which wasn't the case in Mk9
-This game has legitimate grapplers unlike Mk9
-Each character's gimmick button allows for crazy possibilities (For example Batman's gimmick summons bats that can act as assists to make his attacks safe or help with his rushdown)
-There are hit trades in this game unlike Mk9
-Some characters have varying/ unique mobility options(Batman has a double jump and a glide; Cyborg has a grapple; Flight based characters can air dash)

And that's just scratching the surface

for hers and cyborgs dlc costume let it be the shows look for them just so people can play the version that i think looked the best... because lets be honest, cyborg's cartoon look is pretty sweet.

#99
Snipeclips said on January 20, 2013 at 1:09 p.m.

@94

Tempting, but my point still stands. I played MK and didn't liked it at all, but this game is a bit different cause Bane and Luthor being in it. And tbh I do think SFxT and SSF4 are rather the same or the major components of it are the same. At least NR did some work instead of being half assed.

Which is why I still have interest in this game, and hoping it to be more unique than MK.
