This is cool, glad this site covers so many games now.

riku45 said on March 26, 2013 at 2:21 a.m.

this is a 3 button game? I thought it was 6 buttons like sf4?

Superman said on March 26, 2013 at 12:03 p.m.

^ it has motions like sf4 and button layout like marvel

SHAZAMforInjustice said on March 26, 2013 at 12:34 p.m.

Get Hype!!!

knuxpyro56 said on March 26, 2013 at 3:42 p.m.

YES, the fighting game of the year right here

kev_the_bbfan said on March 26, 2013 at 7:56 p.m.

I couldn't agree with you more

armcameron said on March 27, 2013 at 2:30 a.m.

Looking forward to some hard Deathstroke zoning!

JMJ_X said on March 27, 2013 at 8:03 a.m.

wheres wonder woman?

DJScrubble said on March 27, 2013 at 11:35 a.m.

Do we know nothing of Green Arrow?

GenSoHotSpicy said on March 27, 2013 at 1:46 p.m.

Light, Medium, Hard, Character Trait, Meter Burn, Interact, Throw and Stance Flip are all buttons (yes 8) you can use although you can essentially do without the throw, flip, and interact buttons by using combinations of the other 5 buttons and command hard for interact. (ex throw is light and hard, etc etc).

Actually yes. His normals, combos, specials, super, and character trait/power was shown at PAX. You can find all that at TYM atm, EH will probably finish every characters movelists once the game is released, which I don't blame them.

HyperViperNZ said on March 27, 2013 at 10:48 p.m.

What is stance flip?

sulzerjoshua said on March 28, 2013 at 1:46 p.m.

its foe certain characters like nightwing and raven

KYLIOKEN said on March 29, 2013 at 11:38 a.m.

The demo comes out April 2nd for PSN and on the 3rd XBOX Live

ArkticDark said on March 29, 2013 at 1:26 p.m.

I hope the demo has Black Adam, Captain Marvel, Aquaman, Nightwing, Deathstroke and Flash. The 1st six characters I want to play.

kev_the_bbfan said on March 29, 2013 at 9:32 p.m.

Your out of luck because the demo will only have lex, batman, and wonder woman

6748 said on March 30, 2013 at 5:36 a.m.

no batman beyond no buy

GenSoHotSpicy said on March 31, 2013 at 1:25 p.m.

Well I guess you ain't buyin. No loss there.

melongod said on April 2, 2013 at 3:45 p.m.

Can't wait to abuse Batman's frame traps.

916 said on April 3, 2013 at 10:06 p.m.

What's the command or circumstance for wager?

916 said on April 3, 2013 at 10:07 p.m.

What's the command or circumstance for wager?

SqueakyBloom said on April 4, 2013 at 4:08 a.m.

Command to do stage transitions is back and A/X, and the command for the clash is forward and right trigger.

Dbreezy229 said on April 4, 2013 at 9:26 p.m.

@20 Actually Batman does have his Batman Beyond costume in the game. It was found in the mobile Injustice game when it was released.

RedEther said on April 6, 2013 at 10:59 p.m.

Needs more Killer Frost

Wushu_Burgers26 said on April 7, 2013 at 8:52 a.m.

All batman villains

Quan said on April 8, 2013 at 12:41 a.m.

It's a strategic combo stopper
Fwd + RT or R2(if PS3) in the second rd( char must have red energy bar )
Each char can use this once per fight.

MontoniBeatdown said on April 9, 2013 at 2:48 p.m.

im sorry but the demo is garbage, i usually dont write negative stuff about fighting games, but im sorry NetherRealm, you ruined the game. your development team focused more on the the multi-tier levels then the actually combo system of the game. i was a huge fan of MK, before the new one was released. im sorry to me they ruined a completely awesome game. here an idea instead of Kruger in the game how about chuck norris lol

knuckz said on April 11, 2013 at 7:19 p.m.

lol obviously this joker above just doesnt kno how to play if he thinks the combo system is bad lol.

Bison2Winquote said on April 11, 2013 at 8:05 p.m.

@31 A good portion of people who still think Chuck Norris jokes are gold shouldn't be taken seriously. :P
Cool looking game with a promising demo, but I personally am not sure what a not-released-yet game is doing at the top menu of EventHubs. (as well as SFXT #Kappa)

Crazykitana said on April 12, 2013 at 6:43 a.m.

okay thought it was about time i signed up again oh well .
im here to share some new tech, involving the focus attack system in the game.
ill post this on other sites but ill start here.

a key feature of the injustice mechanics which is some what over looked is the focus attack system.
an accustomed system that can be recognised by those that have seen or played SF4.
the focus attack system in injustice doesn't quite function like its sf4 counter part, but they follow the same principles.
they are both able to absorb a one hit attack,in other words have one hit of armour.
the focus attack system in injustice works ,by imputing forward heavy or back heavy plus the meter button.
this is often useful in block strings and as a universal counter to certain strings with low block stun.
most of you may already be aware of this but im not sure anyone has mentioned that you can actually dash out of both forward heavy and back heavy charge version attacks so this can be used for bating attacks and whiff punishing since back dash is safe.
also adds a new layer of depth, as well as granting more movement options.
think of Jax ground pound cancel.
bare in mind you must be charging to dash cancel out of forward heavy or back heavy.

this should have its own thread as i feel this will play a huge role in competitive play given the depth and possibilities at hand.

MontoniBeatdown said on April 12, 2013 at 9:04 a.m.

@ Knucks; Obviously it was my opinion, and your one in a million toddlers who have no idea what your talking about, when it comes to fighting games. its a great idea to have DC characters fight, but with a combo system like MK, also trying to make it like SF. its either one or the other, not both. IMO that is. so cry if you want to. its just an opinion.

Tuigi said on April 13, 2013 at 10:19 a.m.

Everyone is saying how awesome this will be - 100 000 people will buy it when it comes out and play online - players will find 50%+ combos and the tiers will come out - the scene will die - only 10 hardcore players will remain - done!

TheLaw said on April 14, 2013 at 8:20 p.m.

@35 Perfect example of why it will die out: YOU

Spiral0Architect said on April 15, 2013 at 1:23 p.m.

C'mon Black Cannery! That's all I want now that Hawkgirl is in here!

MikeyMuch said on April 16, 2013 at 2:08 a.m.

Be nice to see Deadman, Swamp Thing, Braniac, or Black Manta as some DLC.

DanielMaroto said on April 16, 2013 at 6:31 a.m.

I can´t wait for this game...

BallTapper said on April 16, 2013 at 7:53 a.m.

im really enjoying this game, but i can already tell the life span of it, its gonna be played on stream twice then get booed off by a bunch of "lol what is this babys first fighter? dumb super heros using powers and doing really long damaging combos, stay free injustice players, mahvel is da bess" then everyone is gonna forget about injustice, someone segregate the marvel 3 community from the FGC

MontoniBeatdown said on April 16, 2013 at 8:18 a.m.

game has a good score 8.2/10 but the game has to be balanced, thank god i didnt purchase it, cause the game is @ss!!!

FightinFailure said on April 17, 2013 at 12:11 a.m.

Oh gawd yes.

nicomatc said on April 18, 2013 at 5:47 p.m.

Yep, very @ss, but as I a fg fan I have to play it

Biowulf said on April 20, 2013 at 5:20 a.m.

The game is "@ss" yet you haven't even purchased it? Troll more.

Jacicus said on April 20, 2013 at 11:48 p.m.

I just ordered the Battle Edition of this game today, and its supposed to come by the following Tuesday. I plan on replacing the stick and buttons with Sanwa clear/smoke components. Give me your input, is this a good plan for building my first stick? My only real practice with fighting games (because I recently wanted to get into fighting games this past year) is on the SNES playing Street Fighter II: Turbo. Is jumping right into fighting with a stick a good idea?

Hulkman999st said on April 21, 2013 at 2:02 p.m.

Please include static shock, Roschach and Beast boy as DLC

joshhetfield said on April 25, 2013 at 10:04 a.m.
simple combos with hawkgirl if you're looking to use her

Jalenp69 said on April 26, 2013 at 6:13 p.m.

Yo, I'm a Flash player and when I saw the Elseworld's Finest costume I wanted it badly. I spent a lot of time completing the STAR Lab missions with 3 stars and I finally did it. I was surprised when I got nothing. no achievement for beating all STAR lab missions, no achievement for 3 starring them all, didn't get the EF Flash costume. Has anyone else had this issue? Has anyone else got the 720 stars?

TheOneYourMom said on April 29, 2013 at 2:05 a.m.

batman beyond is in guys are a bunch of fakin returdzz....this game is absolutely robotic trash...just like your hopes for eternal salvation.

You all play this trash azz game like your a bunch of stretch azz arm strongs running through the wind or solomons temple bouncing around like your actually doing something.. this game is cheating robotic trash like no other... God thanks me for not wasting my hard earned money to buy this piece O crap of a game... thanks for ruining a perfectly good artistic view of these characters with your trash ass robo cop attitude style of fighting game.. Im going to randomly sock someone in the face and see if they do a 1000 hit combo in return of that BeeTCH AZZES

Bando said on April 29, 2013 at 3:40 a.m.

I wish they wouldn't use this damned input delay system for their online netcode.

CyberPunkViking said on April 29, 2013 at 2:54 p.m.

@49 I think God has more important things to worry about than fighting games...

Wicket630 said on April 30, 2013 at 6:45 p.m.

I know that it's early and the game only just came out but with that said I have a rough tier list based on personal matches online. Nothing official here but this is just how I feel it looks like right now. Input and collaboration is encouraged!

S+ Aquaman, Green Lantern
S Batman, Superman, Doomsday
A+ Black Adam, Green Arrow, Raven, Killer Frost
A Joker, Nightwing, Grundy, Sinestro, Harley Quinn
B Flash, Wonder Woman, Ares, Catwoman, Lex Luthor, Deathstroke
C Cyborg, Shazam, Bane
F Hawkgirl

bisonoob said on May 1, 2013 at 3:02 p.m.

wheres the defense on this game. cant punish ppl for being predictable.

Frankie_Fear360 said on May 2, 2013 at 8:48 a.m.

Anyone find a fix for the Pulse not working on xbox360?

I've made some modifications to the Battle Edition fightstick as well if there are any questions.

BeyatchKillah said on May 5, 2013 at 5:11 p.m.

Anyone need / want "The Arrow" skin inbox me. I've got one for $ale.

Kabaluk said on May 11, 2013 at 9:04 a.m.

If the online didn't suck so much this would be a great game :(

knapper87 said on May 15, 2013 at 8:18 p.m.

Who do you guys want as a DLC character since Lobo is already out and Batgirl is confirmed

Ironangelx said on May 16, 2013 at 10:08 a.m.


My choices for the next two: Red Hood, Supergirl.

If they had 4 more: Brainiac, Zod, Martian Manhunter, Zatanna

fight2play said on May 18, 2013 at 10:31 p.m.

Come on Scorpion and Sub, or Martian Manhunter and Brainiac, or Swampthing, Steel, Static Shock

ROSHINOBI said on May 24, 2013 at 3:05 p.m.

@59 Static Shock, and Martian Manhunter would be sweet cake...throw in Zantana as the icing and you got yourself a recipe of sweet kickAzz

tazz69 said on May 31, 2013 at 11:35 p.m.

No scorpion is next then zod and both confirmed and the 2nd dlc pack will be red hood and power girl and martian manhunter and last sub zero

JohnnyGenius said on June 26, 2013 at 2:07 p.m.

Can someone please explain to me the what blocking advantage means and those numbers +4,-2, etc?

V27reaper said on July 4, 2013 at 4:07 p.m.

There are not enough female characters in the roster. I really wish the huntress was apart of the roster. It only seems likely she would, right? Anyways, gimme some more ladies Ed Boon!

TECH_SLICE said on July 8, 2013 at 10:02 a.m.

Black Adam is a beast in this game also nightwing and scorpion need damage buffs and keep on nerfing supermans f+2,3

rlewis24 said on July 9, 2013 at 12:22 p.m.

How about Metallo? I do not see him in any stages, missions, or level transitions.

FDNMegaMan said on August 1, 2013 at 1:43 a.m.

I believe that's him in the stryker island bridge.

darrenbritt34 said on August 26, 2013 at 1:31 p.m.

Zatanna needs some improvements definitely, she has no offensive attacks or techniques, she's useless against quite a few characters and no unique wake up attacks, hers specials are perfect, she jus need some improvements, ZATANNA NEEDS TO BE BUFFED!!!!!

ALifeOfWinter said on August 29, 2013 at 6:57 p.m.


Yosuke_Txk said on November 8, 2013 at 7:42 p.m.

i think they should change lobo's sawed off shot gun range its ridiculous and cheap. he's cool and everything but that range is just too much to get in on of jump in on em.

SpaceDolphins said on November 9, 2013 at 11:34 p.m.

The Flash is beast!

Catnip_Her0 said on December 24, 2013 at 1:19 p.m.

24/7 ps3 stream at open lobby always in blackgate join, watch, and have some fun.

Troppop said on January 3, 2014 at 6:47 p.m.

They seriously have to start doing some major balance changes in this game.
Currently playing on PC and been playing it since it was released on steam.
I don't know if the patches are up to date, but at the moment the game is currently even more unbalanced then vanilla SF4. It's really bad.

I've heard rumors about Superman being broken, luckily I have barely played against him and never touched him due to how unliked he is. I've also heard about Deathstroke, but he's actually quite easy, atleast the ones I've played.

Most of all, it pisses me off the ignorant design for Aquaman and Batgirl.
Aquaman; Speed, Long range, ridiculous amount of damaging combo potential and to top it off great zoning abilities, even has Combo potential with zoning alone.

Batgirl; I get the point that she is supposed to be a character who are in need of combos and mixups to dish out some damage since she is so fast, but her speed to damage ratio is off the charts. High damage, fast, very spam friendly and very little difference in her animations between high mid and low just makes it ridiculously hard to guess what to block. Especially since her overhead is at the same level that other characters hit for mid hits.

I really like the game mechanics, playstyle and game overall, but if it's going to stay this unbalanced I'm not gonna be suprised that it will never have a proper scene.

legendarycurry said on January 8, 2014 at 1:11 p.m.

I would just like to suggest that the character list should be divided into "Heroes" and "Villains" to make it easier to navigate, similar to what has been done to "Capcom" and "Marvel" characters for MVC games.


warriors said on January 8, 2014 at 3:13 p.m.

is online play as bad as some people claim :/

8589brian said on February 9, 2014 at 11:15 p.m.

Does anyone play this on PS vita along with UMvC3 or am I the only one?

Catnip_Her0 said on March 23, 2014 at 12:05 a.m.

24/7 ps3 stream at open lobby always in blackgate join, watch, and have some fun.

Killabyte said on April 15, 2014 at 4:14 p.m.

Fighting games rock.
IGAU is no exception.
TestYourMight is a great source to check the IGAU community out, as well as other information.
The community voted tier list function on this site rules, though.
Thanks for opening that up,Eventhubs.

kh_captainjfa said on April 15, 2014 at 6:35 p.m.

Man the teir lists on this site are actually pretty accurate. I love the setup/format.

lukenvoy said on April 18, 2014 at 4:32 a.m.

very late on this game, just got it on sale. i cant speak for the balancing etc at this stage but the game is SO MUCH FUN! this is the first NR game i have really enjoyed since MK2. top marks for detail and effort, its a treat on the eyes and the characters are really well done. really impressed

Ralphxxcherish00 said on July 13, 2014 at 4:43 a.m.

the gameplay is awwesome

mas0clean said on October 15, 2014 at 8:11 a.m.

I am a new assistant, please, I want to I can not apply this foals and combo Is it the one that taught me how to work

mas0clean said on October 15, 2014 at 8:30 a.m.

I have a gamebad

I need tips Is there one suffers from the same problem

mas0clean said on October 15, 2014 at 8:41 a.m.

Do you know the game of injustice: the gods among us i need to tips in the combo

DC4EVA said on May 29, 2015 at 7:40 p.m.

IGAU is so awesome! Can't wait for Injustice 2. Hope they keep the Supermove more less as a finisher than an X-ray type thing, this time around. If not, they can give each character a finisher. Like Batman can call on his bats to swarm the opponent and batter them with their wings, or Swamp Thing can drown or just pull his opponent down into a swamp.

DC4EVA said on May 29, 2015 at 7:50 p.m.

Characters that I'd like to see make the Injustice 2 roster or DLC are (most wanted):

Swamp Thing, Poison Ivy, Black Canary, Plastic Man, Penguin, Riddler, Redhood, Black Manta, Atrocious.

Darkseid for main boss.
