New, potentially game-breaking Batgirl glitch discovered; invisible bola stays on opponent, and can be meter burned any time in a match

A new bit of Injustice: Gods Among Us technology was recently discovered that involves Batgirl and her bola attack. Using a particular set up, players can cause her special move to glitch resulting in an invisible bola staying attached to the opponent even though they can still move around freely.

The advantage to using this setup is that the Batgirl player can meter burn the bola at any time in a match after the glitch has been activated. It has been reported that the invisible bola will even stay attached to the opponent between rounds.

If this setup is mastered, it could potentially become game-breaking as it can lead to a vortex, and make it so that the opponent cannot attack without fear of the meter burn being activated.

A couple of video examples have been posted, and you can check out the setup in action after the jump.

'Get him in there, and then he takes down everybody!' Todd McFarlane expresses interest in Spawn as playable Injustice character

When Injustice: Gods Among Us was first released, fans everywhere went about requesting a plethora of different comic book characters be added to the roster as DLC. The folks over at GamerFitnation were among those who sent NeatherRealm Studios their suggestions, specifically asking former Injustice producer Hector Sanchez if Todd McFarlane's Spawn could become playable.

Back in April of last year, Sanchez stated that there were no plans to have Spawn in Injustice, but that NRS would like to look into that possibility. Nearly ten months later, GamerFitnation has caught up with the creator of the demonic comic book character, Todd McFarlane, and addressed the same question to him.

McFarlane shows interest in this idea, saying, "get him in there, and then he takes down everybody!" He goes on to talk about how Spawn will be making a big comeback in the near future with a feature film, a new video game, and anime.
