Martian Manhunter is the 5th DLC character for Injustice: Gods Among Us

Posted by Catalyst

At EVO 2013, Ed Boon unveiled Martian Manhunter as the 5th DLC character for Injustice: Gods Among Us. They also showed a John Stewart Green Lantern skin, you can check out the clip below.

Martian Manhunter was a popular choice, so much so that Boon even omitted him from a poll he recently ran, because he felt he'd eat up all of the votes.

NetherRealm Studios has stated that there would be multiple DLC characters, so in the future, there will be another announcement for a DLC character beyond Martian Manhunter. The exact number of DLC characters that will be added to the game hasn't been revealed, yet.

He looks so slick. His moveset is perfect. (Also, why do the negatives try to rush in with comments so quickly? What's the point.)

#21
AugustAPC said on July 14, 2013 at 3:24 p.m.

Hmm... I'm not sure how I feel about him just yet.

I don't understand his projectiles. I need to see that trailer again. I'm just really confused.

They did some stuff with his shape-shifting abilities... I didn't see much intangibility. I saw Martian Vision at one point... All those weird projectiles, though... I don't get them. What are they? Which of his powers are they supposed to represent?

I don't know what to think, yet.

EDIT: Oh wow, trailer is already up. Time to analyze.

I wonder should i wait for the GOTY edition or pay for a second season pass...any suggestions?

#31
Fightingfan69 said on July 14, 2013 at 3:32 p.m.

Very cool. I guess his trait is similar to Raven's as it looks like he has different moves when his eyes are red. No release date I see. I'm Buying it. I want more characters. NRS said more DLC but I'm not sure it's characters rather more costumes.

Great Trailer.

Knew it would be a Jon Stewart DLC skin.

Pachendrix said on July 14, 2013 at 3:33 p.m.

About freaking time, they should be ashamed they left out one of the original JLA members and one of the best DC characters out of the game and out of first round of dlc. This must had been planned or they're simply dumbasses, and this comes from a major NRS supporter and huge DC fan.

OMG i read "5th street fighter character" hahahahah

#39
AugustAPC said on July 14, 2013 at 3:35 p.m.

Okay, he looked better the second time around.

I just read that J'onn has energy projection, so his projectiles make more sense now. I don't recall ever seeing him use that, though, in all of the comics I've read with him.

I kinda wish we could see some cool shape shifting in his super, like turning into some crazy monster, but it's cool either way.

Slightly underwhelming, but I dig him.

#38

I saw at one point his eyes start to glow red in the video. I wonder if that could have something to do with his trait.

#40
ROSHINOBI said on July 14, 2013 at 3:35 p.m.

theshredder39 said on July 14, 2013 at 3:41 p.m.

Honestly the biggest surprise here was seeing John Stewart, not that I'm not hyped for MMH he was my most wanted character from the start along with Lobo it's just we all knew he was coming eventually it was only a matter of time.

I'll say this though I love how NRS knew that people would ask "if MMH is playable what happens to the background of the Watch Tower stage?" so they put the fight in the Watch Tower for the trailer.

#47
P0LARCLAW said on July 14, 2013 at 3:45 p.m.

@38 I think his trait is the stretchy limbs. Whenever he does them he has red glowing eyes and you can see him activate it at 0:57 right before a stretchy arm combo.

@44 a friend of mind said second season pass...was coming out in september along with four more DLC chrcts. MMH Sub Zero, Redhood, Zantana, this seem plausible, idk he could be wrong, if it's not going to second season pass...i may just wait for GOTY.

This is great news!

I'm happy for both those who wanted John Stewart, and Martian Manhunter (myself included).
I do agree with AugustAPC, though, I too was hoping for a monster-esque shapeshift in at least his super move. Never mind, though, his moveset looks interesting enough.

Manhunter wasn't omitted from the vote because "he'd eat up all of the votes". It was because they were already working on him in the game so it would have been a waste of a vote.

Creating new content is not milking, it's supporting. Locking away content and selling the key is milking. Taking old resources, repackaging them and selling them as new is milking.

If you can't see the difference, then you're exactly the kind of brain-dead consumer that Capcom is targeting.

@69 these characters "minus scorpion" were request prior to NRS releasing the game plus they give away free skins for character unlike capcom.... also even though alot of people complain about it they update the game FOR FREE unlike capcom..... $5 per character vs the $30 I had to pay for the extra characters that were on the Disc of SFxTK........ go take your CAPCOM FANBOYISM somewhere else... they are so damn lazy over there at capcom that they are copy and pasting the stages and character from sfxTK to SF4 lmao.... sad

#69
i dont know maybe because NRS doesnt give you bare-bone content like capcom does for all their games. injustice has at least two atls for each character from the start with some unlockables. not to mention free alts for each patch. what does capcom give you, beside nothing? get off their nuts

#80
chipndip said on July 14, 2013 at 5:58 p.m.

1) Not locked on disc, but definitely kept on a server somewhere. Who has their entire line of dlc chars confirmed before the game's even out if it's true add-on content? The NEXT four, I might turn a blind eye, but the first four? Don't make me laugh.

2) You're still being milked. Outside of the SF X TKN fiasco, Capcom's yearly updates were significantly better deals: They addressed balancing, gave cheaper characters, and avoided sporadic balance patching before the game could evolve.

3) Don't act like SNK didn't do on-disc dlc either. Where's the hate for SNK? How about Arcs with their pitiful excuse for a $40 update (one char...)? Soul Calibur, iirc, also had disc-locked chars. The only game that really avoided all the "no-nos" for this gen of fighters is Tekken Tag, and that game got how much support at Evo?

The point is, this whole thing about acting like you guys are on a mission against "bad comapnies" is getting old. You can't hate Capcom and give a pass to SNK, because SNK had on-disc dlc for KOFXIII years before SF X TKN even came out. But this isn't about one game or the other in particular. It's about the blatant hypocrisy I keep reading on this site.

Edit: I'm hardly a brain-dead consumer. I get games I like and I stick by the IPs I want around, through good and bad. Capcom's giving me free dlc hunts and perks in MH3U, so they ain't all that bad.

@69 If you only want to buy one of the DLC characters then you only gotta buy one. Everybody was mad at Capcom because
A) They were all on Disk
B) You had to buy all the characters
If I only wanted to play Lars out of the DLC characters I would have to shell out a tonne of money because I was being forced to buy all of them. If I only want to buy Batgirl in Injustice she's all I need to buy.

#83
AugustAPC said on July 14, 2013 at 6:38 p.m.

1) As I've said before, we've seen that NRS does not have their DLC completed prior to release. Planned? Yes, as all DLC is planned. Completed? No. If they were completed, we would have seen Harley and Quan Chi released for MK vs DCU. We also saw fragments of what had been completed with Skarlet when MK9 was released. She had no custom animations or voices. She was basically a template. You think just because Capcom locks their content that other companies do the same? Please. You've been indoctrinated. It's sad.

2. Lol, avoiding sporadic patching? What a joke. I guess that's why the left Rolento's game breaking projectile collision glitch in for so long... because they wanted to let it evolve. You're making a fool of yourself. The good in NRS' patching far outweighs the bad. Glitches rarely last more than 24 hours and the majority of their patches are just glitch fixing with some minor changes. Why does Capcom "avoid" patching? Because their games aren't built to support hotfixes. The f*ck are you on about with "cheaper" characters? Are you talking about the 12 locked characters? That's not offering cheaper characters, that's finding a way to trick you into paying $80 MSRP without having to develop any new content.

3. Yea, SNK did have disc-locked content. I never gave them a free pass. There was plenty of bitching thrown their way when that came out. Oh, yea, and Arc System Works' one character update? You're right, it was one character... and multiple new modes, and an updated story, and new chapters for previous DLC characters, and new moves for each character, and refined online. Regarding Soul Calibur. I'm assuming you're talking about IV, which had 3 Star Wars characters, 1 being disc-locked and 1 exclusive to each console. Yea, that was obnoxious too, but at least it's not 12 goddamn characters.

I give no companies free passes. But Capcom is easily the scummiest in the genre right now. They do all the shady sh*t that other companies do, but they do it 10 times worse:

You have a disc locked character in your game? We'll have 12 in ours. You did a console exclusive character? We'll do 5. But we're not gonna stop there! We're gonna sell ways to make your characters stronger! What's that? You're giving out some free costumes? Ain't nobody got any time fo' dat! We're too busy taking stages from our old games and reselling them in our new ones.

Look, I'm a fan of fighting games. I don't care who develops them, as long as they're like trying to bend me over.

I love Marvel, I love SF:IV, I even love SFxT. I find them all extremely fun and I've put hours upon hours into all 3 of those games. But I don't like the sh*tty business tactics that Capcom is practicing.

I don't single Capcom out, either. I bitched forever when Kratos was announced for MK9. I still find that a complete waste of a character slot. Same goes for Freddy, who I still have yet to download, along with the 12 locked SFxT characters.

What's with the Capcom defense force showing up in every non-Capcom game article? Ugh.

Anyway, Martian Manhunter looks great. Not the kind of moveset I had in mind (I thought he'd be more similar to Shang Tsung than Dhalsim) but he looks pretty cool. Can't wait to see who's next. Doctor Fate? Black Canary? Black Manta? Swamp-Thing? Zatanna? Also John Stewart <3 I really hope he's the free costume. And I'm glad they got their respective voice actors.

#91
AveMcree said on July 14, 2013 at 8:21 p.m.

@91 yeah it makes no sense... no one in here goes about hating on capcom articles for no reason though its no need because most capcom fanboys are bi-polar as hell...

either way, I can be happy that john stewarts in the game after all the crying I did and now I can can play green lantern and finally drop cyborg util he gets those jax like buffs lol

#92
Xoleworld said on July 14, 2013 at 8:30 p.m.

make his trait shapeshift, that would be crazy. Like a doppleganger effect? You would have to be into that character though and know the combos. If it was random that would be cool too but once again, you could end up with someone you don't want. I like him and the GL skin. Just waiting on that NEW 52 skin for raven and RED HOOD. BEAST BOY is welcomed too.

#93
GenSoHotSpicy said on July 14, 2013 at 9:04 p.m.

After watching the MMH trailer a dozen times it seems as if his playstyle is a mix between Raven, GL, Lobo and Zod. Great mobility and range, all sorts of mind games. Toolset he is will make him High or Mid tier. I'm gonna have to put my Sinestro, Hawkgirl and Lex team down for a while when he comes out since he is my 2nd favorite DC character.

Please NRS, put my #1 honey STARFIRE in the game. This game needs her.

#94
GenSoHotSpicy said on July 14, 2013 at 9:07 p.m.

Hate to double post but.. (I couldn't edit my prev)

Why Jon Stewart GL skin when a Sinestro New 52 (Green Lantern Sinestro) would be so much better? GL already has plenty of skins.

I was anticipating Adam West Batman since they said it was a highly requested skin..oh well.

Nothing's ruled out my friend. There's still all the chance in the world we'll get a Green Lantern Sinestro. That would be a great outfit. They might have to record a new voice-over for it, though.

Adam West Batman with a Adam West voice would be incredible.

#97
GenSoHotSpicy said on July 14, 2013 at 9:57 p.m.

@97
Yeah hopefully we get another New 52 skin pack with Black Adam (w/cape), Sinestro (GLC) and somebody else..hopefully Aquaman.

Adam West Batman along with 60s Robin would be epic.

Some people just come in to post negativity. It says a lot about what kind of people they are.

About this, MM is well deserved to be on the roster. I really hope Red Hood doesn't make the roster. A JLD character would be nice.
