Ed Boon begins unofficial poll for potential future DLC characters in Injustice: Gods Among Us

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • May 9, 2013 at 3:03 p.m. PDT
Ed Boon begins unofficial poll for potential future DLC characters in Injustice: Gods Among Us Earlier today, NetherRealm's own Ed Boon began an unofficial poll to get people's opinions on which character they'd most like to see as DLC in Injustice: Gods Among Us. There are a total of 7 characters to choose from which you can find below.

One of the most highly requested characters, Martian Manhunter, was actually omitted from this list. When asked about this by a Twitter user, Boon mentioned that he was left out because he would definitely receive most of the votes.

Although this poll was most likely generated just for fun, the results will give NetherRealm a good idea as to which characters are most desired.

The characters up for voting are as follows:

• Blue Beetle
• Doctor Fate
• Powergirl
• Red Hood (Robin)
• Static Shock
• Swamp Thing
• Zatanna

Which character from the list above would you most like to see included in Injustice? Cast your vote and let us know who you chose in the comments below.

Zatanna would be the most interesting character on that list. Redhood would be the least interesting imo

Zatanna or Doctor Fate let's go!

HooliganComboFTW said on May 9, 2013 at 3:12 p.m.

Calling it now

I can see Red Hood or Static (Why the hell is he being called "Static Shock"? thats just the Tv show name..) because of that positively received "Under the Red Hood" animated film increasing his notoriety to the more wider audience who don't read comics.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fCtSAr...

and of course that sheer nostalgia from the "Static Shock" TV show who of course 95% of the people heard about Static from that show and not from the old Milestone comics

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Bk1lNN...

being why either of those two characters will win for the wider vote appeal. Powergirl maybe because of tits

#14
Mr_Bogard said on May 9, 2013 at 3:16 p.m.

Martian Manhunter

ShakeTheWorm said on May 9, 2013 at 3:16 p.m.

Zatanna. Please Zatanna.

Swamp Thing would be really awesome too.

#16
EarthRyno said on May 9, 2013 at 3:17 p.m.

Zatanna!

#17
Batmang said on May 9, 2013 at 3:17 p.m.

Can't decide between Blue Beetle, Swamp Thing, Dr. Fate, and Zatanna. Hell, I'd love to see them all in one pack. That'd be awesome.

also ew powergirl

#18
Portal23 said on May 9, 2013 at 3:17 p.m.

I want both PowerGirl and Zatanna, but knowing NetherRealm studios they will make them butt ass ugly just like all the other females in their fighting games.

#19
Thisoneguy said on May 9, 2013 at 3:17 p.m.

Static Shock.....enough with the Superman and Batman related characters.

#20
DeadRose said on May 9, 2013 at 3:18 p.m.

I'm torn. On the one hand I really like Justice League Dark and want to see Zatanna and Constatine. On the other, I really like Red Hood and the Outlaws and would like to see the Red Hood in this game. I'd probably switch mains if either Zatanna or Red Hood get put into the game though.

#21
dust said on May 9, 2013 at 3:19 p.m.

Yeah I would vote Powergirl if I weren't certain that they would fail to make her hot. Still... boobies are very persuasive. Either that or Static Shock!!

#22
dust said on May 9, 2013 at 3:20 p.m.

You all know you want to motorboat that thumbnail.

#23
LordProsper said on May 9, 2013 at 3:20 p.m.

YOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO my boy Static is an option? Nice!

Don't know why anyone would vote for Powergirl, people only like her because she's hot and I'm pretty sure we all know NRS has no clue what a female face looks like.

#24
Shumanigans said on May 9, 2013 at 3:20 p.m.

Anyone without super strength as their main power.

#26
Dr_Panic_PhD said on May 9, 2013 at 3:22 p.m.

I'd vote for Zatanna if it wasn't for the fact that this was Netherrealm making the models. I'd also have picked Swamp Thing if Grundy didn't have so many swamp characteristics to him already. Omitting those two, I'll go with Doctor Fate (hopefully voiced by his Justice League VA) followed by Static (although admittedly he would have been better if they use John Stewart Green Lantern in that case given their history in the shows).

#27
P0LARCLAW said on May 9, 2013 at 3:23 p.m.

Why isn't MMH on there? Well, I guess I'll vote for Swamp Thing.

#28
ElderSkrulls said on May 9, 2013 at 3:23 p.m.

Vertigo Swamp Thing would be cool, and Static-can we get at least one more brother?
Actually, I'd be good with pretty much anyone on the list, but yeah, if Power Girl or Zatanna get the Wonder Man treatment, no thanks.

For me it was a toss up between Swamp Thing and Zatanna, but in the end I voted for Swamp Thing.

#31
iw2ma said on May 9, 2013 at 3:25 p.m.

Zatanna numba 1

Fate
Beetle
Static
Power Girl

RedHood
Swamp Thing

#32
Baby_Astaroth said on May 9, 2013 at 3:26 p.m.

I would have voted for MMH if he was on the list.

My first choice would have been Power Girl, but since NRS can't make a female character look decent to save their lives I'm going with Red Hood.

#33
Angryjoshua said on May 9, 2013 at 3:28 p.m.

Static or Zatanna....
Best Possible Options

#34
XFinalVengeanceX said on May 9, 2013 at 3:28 p.m.

Doctor Fate
Static Shock
Powergirl

#35
ScrubStep said on May 9, 2013 at 3:28 p.m.

Between these, id have to go with Martain Manhunter. But followed by Dr. Fate way above the rest.

#36
Shajita said on May 9, 2013 at 3:29 p.m.

I don't particularly want any of these...

#37
KiD_LupE said on May 9, 2013 at 3:29 p.m.

Static! I'm just happy he's even on the list! Him or Zatanna. I feel like. Blue beetle would just be a cooler version of cyborg. And I'd rather add a cool character, not just a pair of boobs, sorry power girl.

#38
Batmang said on May 9, 2013 at 3:30 p.m.

Zatanna and Red Hood leading? Interesting. I thought Static would've won by a landslide. And I didn't think people would vote for Red Hood after complaining about too many Bat characters and clones and whatnot. Nevertheless, I'm happy to see Zatanna in the lead :)

Blue Beetle or Static pls
If Powergirl is chosen, I hope her face looks like a car wreck between two semis

Red Hood.

Anti Heroes always win the popularity contest.

Yall Trippin, Dr Fate is a swagged out Dr Strange... DR FATE!

WarioFTW said on May 9, 2013 at 3:34 p.m.

ok so i know that NRS are great at talking "clone" characters and giving them extreme differences in play style. take any ninja from mk9 and now the bat characters in injustice. I just cant see power girl having any true difference from superman. She has all his powers, but to my knowledge nothing unique. so if she is in the game she is going to have all of supermans powers with little variety. and she will most likely hover like superman does, and have an air dash... look im not saying she cant be different, im just saying it would be hard and in the end I'd rather see characters with potentially different play styles and abilities. Swamp Thing is my pick because I love his comics and he would be so much fun. Static would be second. Hell, I love batman (and according to the FGC im a fan boy who loves his injustice batman among us) and I think it would be cool to see red hood, though it would be hard to make him stand out, so I rather he sit this game out (but if he makes ill still squeal like a girl).
The point of my complaining is that I dont see power girl being any different from superman. They literary have the same powers. I know the argument can be said that Shazam and black adam have the same powers but they both have one generic power: lighting. There are so many ways they can use lighting. Heat vision and super breath on the other hand will always be the same. I feel like people just want giant tits in their fighting game...

Super_Shoto_Fighter_4 said on May 9, 2013 at 3:35 p.m.

I would Like to see Static but I have a feeling Power Girl's assets will sway the voting :(

Mojo said on May 9, 2013 at 3:36 p.m.

No Freakazoid? Doesn't WB have the rights to that character? Can't believe they decided to make scorpion the guest character over him.

#48
zhulok said on May 9, 2013 at 3:38 p.m.

Why hasn't anybody mentioned Black Canary? She's easily the most obvious superhero for a mortal kombat style fighting game. She's an expert fighter that has trained a lot of the Justice League members and her Sonic Scream is very similar to Sindel's.

eyekantspele said on May 9, 2013 at 3:39 p.m.

Sorry, as soon as I saw Static Shock, I didnt give a f#@& about who else was on the list....

Out of this list? Dr Fate. NRS Powergirl is not something I wanna see

#53
Hadouken_Os said on May 9, 2013 at 3:40 p.m.

Voted Zatanna. If the rumored 2nd set of DLC is true, then she better be in there.

#54
Pachendrix said on May 9, 2013 at 3:41 p.m.

ZATANNA, Dr. Fate, Swamp Thing, Static, in that same order. Powergirl can comfortly rest in the bottom of the pile (and that's only because she's on the list, if not, then she could comfortly rest on my NEVER GONNA APPEAR IN THE GAME list). ;D

Booster Gold-OH WAIT

#56
ya_boy said on May 9, 2013 at 3:41 p.m.

We don't need anymore donkey face women so as long as none of them win I think any other choice is fine. Static or Dr. Fate would be pretty cool.

#57
Biggz124 said on May 9, 2013 at 3:42 p.m.

Vote Static!(shock)

He was one of the last characters Dwayne McDduffie ever did before he died :'(

We don't really need boobs aka powergirl if we already have superman. Swamp thing is cool but we'd just have alan moore cry about it. Plus we already have grundy. I'm going with static shock. This game only has one black person and he's the stereotypical football player.

#61
NyuBomber said on May 9, 2013 at 3:45 p.m.

The last time this happened, the least voted character ended up included.

So....just saiyin.

#63
Mikecall said on May 9, 2013 at 3:47 p.m.

I wanna see Static Shock in Injustice but I want him voiced by Phil LaMarr. Nobody else!

#64
Bulletwithbatwings said on May 9, 2013 at 3:47 p.m.

I voted Swamp Thing. He would be very interesting to use as a character and he would play very different from everyone else. A close 2nd when respecting interesting gameplay options would be Blue Beetle. My pic only taking favorites into consideration would be Red Hood but yes, I know that makes for another Batman character.

I think the purpose of this vote may be to replace Scorpion after the tremendous backlash (at least I hope it is).

#65
TeenIdol said on May 9, 2013 at 3:48 p.m.

Swamp Thing would have the most bad-arse character design, but of course I'm sure he won't win. Why? Because from past results, polls always bring out the WORST possible option. Powergirl? Zatanna? Red Hood? Copy/paste options...

#66
Chaos15 said on May 9, 2013 at 3:48 p.m.

Static or Swamp Thing.

On one hand. FREAKING STATIC!
On the other hand Swamp Thing could use the spotlight.

Dammit Boon!

#67
Razberryclownsac said on May 9, 2013 at 3:49 p.m.

Grodd would be my number 1, but he isnt offered in this list. I'd love to have Beetle and/or Swamp Thing, but I'm going Zatanna. That chick would be cool as hell in this game

#68
tortoos said on May 9, 2013 at 3:50 p.m.

I'd also vote for Grodd. He'd by my number one

Further Reason to not vote for power girl:

Razberryclownsac said on May 9, 2013 at 3:52 p.m.

#62 I was actually kinda thinkin the same thing lol. Last poll they had, MMH and PG took all the votes, yet neither get in. It's funny too cause Boon was teasing Beetle and Swamp Thing, and I dont even see them mentioned in the game.

#70
MrTimtastic said on May 9, 2013 at 3:52 p.m.

I know he's not on the list, but I voted for Alfred. Yes, Alfred as Bruce Wayne's butler. I think he'd be the perfect troll character.

#71
RoanHen said on May 9, 2013 at 3:52 p.m.

Doctor Fate and Zatanna

#72
GenSoHotSpicy said on May 9, 2013 at 3:52 p.m.

This list is garbage.

WHERE THE F### IS STARFIRE?!!!!!!!

Starfire is better than any other female character in the entire DC Universe. She's the sexiest by a long shot and she would look amazing in IGAU. Dat golden skin, green eyes, long amber hair that is ablaze when shes beastin and her titties are way better than Powergirl's. I would pay $100 for Starfire DLC no joke.

Everybody who wants Princess Koriand'r in this game please tweet the crap out of Boon.

#73
ElderSkrulls said on May 9, 2013 at 3:52 p.m.

There's actually one thing that worries me more than lame DLC characters-are they going to add alts and S.T.A.R. Labs missions for DLC characters? Because when I didn't see any for Lobo, I was like PASS

#74
Dionysos said on May 9, 2013 at 3:54 p.m.

It seems that the OP favours Powergirl here. ;)

Power Girl would be the worst choise ever. Another kryptonian, we already have Superman, will have General Zod and then Power Girl? Better go with Zatanna, hotter then Power Girl and is a magic user.

@77
I don't want her for that reason. I want her because she is my fav DC heroine. I own every issue of Red Hood & the Outlaws so I got enough oogle material of her. Starfire is hotter than all the DOA girls combined anyways. Lol.

She would have such a dope move list.. She's a living breathing gorgeous walking/flying nuclear reactor with one hell of a body to boot. C'mon now.

I voted Power Girl because she's the only one i've heard of, i didn't know she was DC so it would be cool to see her in the video game with the best of DC, also it would be a good way of getting Super Girl in the game in a way.
