Ed Boon: Martian Manhunter wasn't included in the poll so he doesn't eat up all the votes, since he's #1 on every poll

Ed Boon: Martian Manhunter wasn't included in the poll so he doesn't eat up all the votes, since he's #1 on every poll Yesterday, Ed Boon started an unofficial poll for potential DLC characters in the future for Injustice: Gods Among Us. Since then he's received a few questions on his Twitter as to why certain characters weren't included and if he'll publish the results of the poll.

TheGatekeeper23: Why is martian Manhunter not on the survey?

Ed Boon: He's #1 on every poll. No point in having him eat up all votes.

Subzerahnow: Are you gonna announce the results of the poll?

Ed Boon: Yes. I can't believe how many people have voted already.

So why the hell is he not in the game yet

^....Hes in the background....HE IS IN THE GAME

F*ck Broccoli Man, we need more females.

MMH Confirmed For Round 2 DLC?????

BeatNinja said on May 10, 2013 at 8:26 p.m.

Needs more females, yes

ArturoA9790 said on May 10, 2013 at 8:27 p.m.

So dumb. The one who gets most votes should be in. A character shouldn't be excluded just because we know he or she will win. That's the point of a popular vote,and more money for NRS when they sell him.

MALDA_IS_BACK said on May 10, 2013 at 8:28 p.m.


Being in the background don't mean crap hell Batgirl as a character DLC was a surprise.

Gotomaster said on May 10, 2013 at 8:30 p.m.

If you knew MMH was a popular character, why would you relegate him to the background? There is so much moveset possibilities, considering his powers, would be a better and more creative choice than say Zod, who is pretty much already playable alas Regime Superman.

h1tm0nl33 said on May 10, 2013 at 8:32 p.m.

@3&5 Shut up, sexually insecure D-Bags like you are the reason we got Batgirl instead of an actual good character.

Mexican_Guy said on May 10, 2013 at 8:34 p.m.

Seriously, MMH should have been in the original roster, just use Shang Tsung as base for him.

@11 because every time i walk into a thread about games like this i see people spouting off about games needing more females as if the game is worse for not having them, this is the reason we got killer frost and batgirl instead of better characters like Captain Cold and Brainiac.

samuraix025 said on May 10, 2013 at 8:48 p.m.

2 things:

1: i think martian manhunter just got confirmed...

2: i dont think 9 was being sexist i think we was complaining about the weirdo gamers who only want female characters so they can make something jiggle. while i like her playstyle i really don't think we need the whole bat family in the game but she been confirmedso no use crying about it now. honestly the whole "useless character" complaining is getting old. just because you don't like a character doesn't make him/her useless.

magicarp was useless batgirl is not

@1 You were so happy about this game and now its made you so bitter lol. I wasnt really looking forward to this game and now im loving it including the DLC.

MALDA_IS_BACK said on May 10, 2013 at 8:58 p.m.


WTH are you talking about I'm having fun with the game I just don't like the DLC characters they pick besides Lobo.

Von_Kunlun_BOOF said on May 10, 2013 at 8:59 p.m.


He's upset about ONE thing.

Quit generalizing that it's the ENTIRE game. I am loving the gameplay and characters of the game, but I am still entitled to be a little upset at some of the DLC choices (Especially Scorpion, if the list is true).


If Martain Manhunter is at the top of each poll... Wouldn't it be a smart idea to make him in the game? I mean... High demand will equal high sales, and that's ultimately what this is all about.

edrigo said on May 10, 2013 at 9 p.m.

Yeah a few thumbnails of powergirl sudenenly dudes are like

"more females"

jonn jonzz is a big character he's the most popular character fans want.

having megan is like taking wolverine out and just having x23 (because she's a female)

HyperViperNZ said on May 10, 2013 at 9:03 p.m.

Gender balance means something to some people. Just accept that some people prefer there games to not be sausage fests and there favorite characters may in fact be female. I agree that this game needs more female characters not only to balance out the male/female ratio but because DC has a lot of interesting females i'd like to play as.

killerkalmah said on May 10, 2013 at 9:07 p.m.

Ed Boon = Crap.

If MMH is the most popular why the hell he is not in the game or DLC?.

The true is that Boon is an a$$hole. He first send 4 DLC characters comanded by lobo on the season pass for people to grab the 4 and exclude MMH just for sell him apart with another character? or maybe other 4 i hope, i get salty cuz we gonna end having scorpion and zod and god knows who else... bizarro? robin? another lantern maybe? or someone worst.

Redblaze27 said on May 10, 2013 at 9:11 p.m.

Martian Manhuter & Zatanna will make this game so hype.

TheTHCGamer said on May 10, 2013 at 9:13 p.m.

@22 No with the way youve been going you must HATE the DLC characters they chose. Let it go dude im not happy that characters like Swamp Thing who is my favorite comic character didnt make it in but these things happen all the time. I understand there is far to many batman characters in this game but batmans the most popular character in DC at the moment so i know i have to deal with it.

Like you said your having fun with the game so dont let the current choice of DLC characters bother you so much. Go ahead vent your frustrations and then let it go. Even though both of us dont care for the DLC character choices besides lobo it doesnt mean everyone else feels the same way.

@23 LMAO Its really sweet of you to jump on the keyboard to defend him but im sure he can do that himself which he did.

TheMasterPlayer said on May 10, 2013 at 9:16 p.m.

Just put in more female characters and less male characters as DLC at this point. That way the cast would be almost equal in terms of female to male ratio. And add in SUB ZERO as a DLC as well!

okay said on May 10, 2013 at 9:18 p.m.

Boon already fooled people into buying the season pass. Martian Manhunter and Starfire will be used later down the line to milk everyone further.

Pachendrix said on May 10, 2013 at 9:19 p.m.

HOPEFULLY, all this polls and cr@p means there will be a second wave of dlc characters in the near future. MMH and Zatanna, for the hero side and for the villain side, any female/male combination between Swamp Thing/Spectre/Black Manta/Brainiac and Huntress/Circe/Poison Ivy/Cheetah. Of course there's several other great characters but hey, they've already said they want to make an Injustice sequel, so I gotta leave some ideas for INJ2, like Katana, Static, Mirror Master, Starfire, Dr. Fate, etc.

TheRyzzl said on May 10, 2013 at 9:19 p.m.

I would be so effin sad if they put in ms. martian instead of mmh...

killerkalmah said on May 10, 2013 at 9:19 p.m.

Well... is on to people love or hate the game whatever the reason lol

Kijui said on May 10, 2013 at 9:21 p.m.

I take offense to that.... I'm a MagiKarp.

GenSoHotSpicy said on May 10, 2013 at 9:32 p.m.

MMH would have gotten 95% of the vote so it would have been stupid to include him in the poll. This is old news, we heard this yesterday.

Snow said on May 10, 2013 at 9:34 p.m.


I also find it funny that people constantly whine about wanting women in fighters, then when you get something at does just that (like skullgirls or arcana hearts) no one wants to play it because there arren't enough dudes.

In short people need to be more concerned with the engine rather than the chassie and pay more attention to the meat of the game than making sure their personal politically correct early 90's cartoon gender/ race/ creed quota are met.

Von_Kunlun_BOOF said on May 10, 2013 at 9:42 p.m.

Really glad to be able to see THCGamer's past comments to see he's just an a**hole.

I thought you were confused about his comment so I corrected you, but obviously you take comments like a needle from a cactus.

This will help:


TheTHCGamer said on May 10, 2013 at 9:43 p.m.

This could be boon's way of saying MMH is an automatic how about other characters that your interested in. A second season pass would be great in my opinion but im just worried about how much everything will cost in the end. Lets say 3 season passes are released adding a total of 12 characters which is cool but i dont hope i have buyers remorse because lets face it theres going to be a game of the year edition thats most likely going to be 39.99.

TheTTimeLives said on May 10, 2013 at 9:54 p.m.

I think the 4 everyone wanted were Lobo, Martian Manhunter, Power Girl, (Villian of some sort)

Not Lobo, Batgirl (wtf), Zod (ok I guess. understandable because of the movie) and Scorpion (no!!!!!!!!!!)

TheTHCGamer said on May 10, 2013 at 9:56 p.m.

@37 Is that really the cast or are you being way to sensitive. What did i post that makes me such an A-hole? Lol i hate to see what happens when someone really insults you. Dont worry we can brush eachothers hair while we play injustice and talk things out.

Von_Kunlun_BOOF said on May 10, 2013 at 10:11 p.m.


Sarcastic remarks in all your comments towards me...

Sounds like an a**hole to me.

And I'm still waiting for someone IRL to insult me... because all it really ever is doing that is a bunch of keyboard warriors hiding behind the internet.

MaRayearth said on May 10, 2013 at 10:16 p.m.

Funny thing is, after all this bitching, when they finally release MMH as a playable character, kids are gonna find something else to bitch about, such as "his design sucks" / "he's a (insert name of MK character here) clone" etc.

Powergirl is the only DLC I'd pay for in this game. (And GL Sinestro if that ever happens)

Von_Kunlun_BOOF said on May 10, 2013 at 10:17 p.m.


There are also going to be those of us that are glad he is in the game.

TheTHCGamer said on May 10, 2013 at 10:25 p.m.

@41 Wait your calling me a keyboard warrior when your the one who acted like a keyboard here flying to someones defense who didnt even need it. Lol okay and tell me why did i start comments towards you? IRL is that internet talk for in real life? Are you kidding me dude are you seriously saying your such a badass that no one in real life would dare insult you.

LMAO and your the one calling me a keyboard warrior. Dude your letting your avatar get to your head your not really a DBZ character. Yea im really going to buy a plane ticket to fly to where you life just to insult you.

killerkalmah said on May 10, 2013 at 10:25 p.m.

@42 But is imposible to us know how a character will be designed, if i'm not happy with something i'm in my right to complain abou it, especially if is something i ask for.

TheTHCGamer said on May 10, 2013 at 10:29 p.m.

@45 Exactly i like wonder woman but man did they not notice how freaking ugly she is in the game. Im not saying shes got to be out of this world fine but cmon did NRS not notice how ugly she turned out.

BeatNinja said on May 10, 2013 at 10:36 p.m.


Read #25's comment. That would be my response to your comment mmmate. No need to go hostile, it's just another person's opinion.

Razberryclownsac said on May 10, 2013 at 10:37 p.m.

He did a poll, MMH and PG were tops, but neither is in the game and probably not DLC. So, whats the point of the poll if they're not really choices? I still voted but feel this is more for fun instead of actually guaging interest.

Von_Kunlun_BOOF said on May 10, 2013 at 10:48 p.m.


People don't insult me outside the internet because most people outside the internet aren't a**holes, believe it or not. They're actually pretty nice.

Everything I say you just twist around and try to use back on me. The fact that you just assumed something about my avatar and that I think I'm a bada** in real life pretty much confirms it (Not even the case at all). You still haven't denied the fact that you're an a**hole. All you got are sarcastic remarks for anything I say.

So yes, you ARE a keyboard warrior.

I'm wondering right now how you're gonna twist this comment around.

blazebwoy said on May 10, 2013 at 10:50 p.m.

for the love of god they cant do Martian Manhunter since he is a character morpher, he can turn into other characters and monsters and aliens, it cant be done in 3D

killerkalmah said on May 10, 2013 at 11:05 p.m.

Never in my life i imagine a fight between Broly and Bane but looks tied lol just kidding guys.

On topic

@50 He can do many thing my boy, not only morphing, come on grab a comic i challenge you. MMH has super stranght, invisibility, flight, energy proyectiles, telekinesis and shape shifting.

Mac_Gargan said on May 10, 2013 at 11:07 p.m.

Don't be dumb, guys. This is a TROLLING.

It means MM is already planned as DLC.

TheTHCGamer said on May 10, 2013 at 11:10 p.m.

@49 You must not leave the house much because there are a-holes all over the world. Now back to my original point what did i first post to you that makes me seem like such an a-hole? I seriously think you were being a bit dramatic but thats just me. Im not twisting anything around just pointing out things youve posted. Anyway for someone keeps calling me out its funny how your still arguing with me and keep calling me an a-hole.

If you really feel like your the better person and im the a-hole then why dont you stop responding to my posts. In the end this all couldve been avoided if you wouldve just kept your nose out of something that didnt even involve you but you felt like being a keyboard hero. Either way this topic isnt about you or me so ill be the one to stop right here. By all means though keep responding if you want.

darrenbritt34 said on May 10, 2013 at 11:29 p.m.

More Females!!! BLACK CANARAY!!!!!!

blazebwoy said on May 11, 2013 at 1:07 a.m.

of course i know that and yeah they can do MMH without the character morphing, Shang Tsung in MK9 he cannot morph into anyone he wants. He only has the Soul Steal move (which can also be enhanced), which is used to turn into your current opponent and give yourself a damage boost. The CPU you face in the ladders can turn into your character(s) and two (or one) random characters, but that's just to make the match more interesting. You can't do this yourself, as MMH to morph he should turn into monsters and beasts which he is known for, from design standpoint, changing a character models bones/skeleton/biped to another is impossible or very hard to do and even then there are glitches,i suppose 1 way would be his character morph to be a animation and during that time MMH can morph into a monster
i honestly think they will save MMH for Injustice 2

FrenchPingu said on May 11, 2013 at 1:18 a.m.

#1 He isn't in the game because for that everybody buy this DLC.

bahamutknightzero said on May 11, 2013 at 1:21 a.m.

Damage control from Boon

killerkalmah said on May 11, 2013 at 1:35 a.m.


Many people are asking for him without knowing the character or his powers im glad you know of who we're talking about, his transformations are very nice i was saying that he has more powers beside morphing wich is one of his trademark but i really don't want him without his morphing, for example they can make a move that make him invisible or invincible to proyectiles like KI cinder and can make him morph in his trait into his real aspect and in his super move he can become in all what NRS wants. it would be a bad choice not to include him in this first game.

IMO DC has a lot of characters and can easily put 38-40 characters on a second game, wich -if all goes good- we gonna get in 5 years at least, afther MK10

Sasuga said on May 11, 2013 at 1:39 a.m.

Now they can no longer get away with not putting him in the game. And Ed doesn't seem to care.

Nukka said on May 11, 2013 at 1:43 a.m.

Needs less females.

And HELL to the no with Miss Martian, what a lame version of MMH.

macbellito said on May 11, 2013 at 2:19 a.m.

MORE FEMALES... Black Canary and Zatanna or Starfire

blazebwoy said on May 11, 2013 at 2:36 a.m.

i want him in too man he's one of my favorites also rumoured to have a cameo in Man Of Steel :)))))))) but if he's not in, it will be from a technical stand point, but like i said there are ways around it, but NRS should know how to do that anyway which tells me, a)they are not talented enough or b)he's being purposely held for Injustice 2 or DLC, which is disgusting when he should be part of the on-disc roster

Jalenp69 said on May 11, 2013 at 3:18 a.m.

C'mon you guys.

1. Ed Boon creates an "unofficial" poll for the next wave of DLC characters. Obviously this means he's garnering ideas for which characters we want to see. He's definitely not doing this as some independent research, he's gonna use it for when they work on the next batch of characters.

2. He deliberately left out MMH because he knows he'd get the most votes. Hmm. If he's working to gather votes for a new DLC character, and he left one out of voting because he knows he's the fan favorite...
Well, c'mon put two and two together.

Kurow said on May 11, 2013 at 3:39 a.m.

We need more "beautiful" females! please give me Power Girl, Starfire and StarSapphire ;o;... about the guys Red Hood and FireStorm plz ;o;

Yzy said on May 11, 2013 at 3:44 a.m.

So basically if Martian Manhunter in background he's won't be as playable character. Doomsday is on background too but he's playable. Does this mean Doctor Fate won't be playable too?

CrimsonMoonMist said on May 11, 2013 at 4:04 a.m.

While some complain that MMH wasn't included in the polls if Boon knew he'd win, I prefer to see it as a sign that he is essentially as good as confirmed.

Aquaman said on May 11, 2013 at 4:07 a.m.

Males: Black Manta, Dr. Fate, Bronze Tiger
Females: Zatanna, Vixen, Black Canary.

hazelnut1112 said on May 11, 2013 at 4:26 a.m.

He didn't want MMH be in the poll because he would be number one by a landslide.
Yet he insisted on adding another Batman character on the poll so that character can eat up the votes instead.
Boon, you cheeky bastard.

Combo_Knight said on May 11, 2013 at 5:28 a.m.

I don't care about the female to male ration in this game. Because the females look like males.

Second, I would much rather have Static. than any martian mofo.

aegis_refractory said on May 11, 2013 at 5:50 a.m.

Zatanna would be dope. I'd say Power Girl too, but NRS makes horrible looking female characters.. they'd ruin her. It's nice that DC has such an expansive universe to make this kind of DLC additions possible. I just hope NRS doesnt mess it up by adding characters with horrible movesets or whatever.

Dutchling said on May 11, 2013 at 6:03 a.m.

People still complaining that females aren't anime.

This might confirm that Boon has Martian ready as DLC or the team can't figure out how he'll play.

BestAlgorithm said on May 11, 2013 at 6:21 a.m.

I just want Power Girl as a speedy command grab character. I don't care about anyone else

N0_0NE_SPECIAL said on May 11, 2013 at 7:17 a.m.

most balaned list IMO. MMH, Darksied, Swampthing/Firestorm/Static and Braniac. 2 heroes and 2 villains seems fair.

MetroCityPub said on May 11, 2013 at 9:31 a.m.


Complaining that the females are unattractive isn't the same as complaining that the females aren't anime.

Some of them look decent but others would honestly look better if there was a DLC costume that gave them a bag over their head (Raven).

EvilRick said on May 11, 2013 at 9:39 a.m.

I'm lead to believe Ed Boon is intentionally trolling everybody with the Scorpion leak and the 4th DLC is going to be Martianman Hunter...

What? Dreaming is free....

Raven said on May 11, 2013 at 9:43 a.m.

Either MM is very hard to implement or he's already planned, imo. Why make a poll with Ryu when you can get opinions on lower ranked characters? Same concept. He's not included, because they put in other fan favorites...somebody will always be left out. But it doesn't mean he won't come in later. Keep demanding it!

Loryuo said on May 11, 2013 at 10:18 a.m.

I just want powergirl. Idc about any other dlc. Powergirl for Blue mary archetype!

LordUltraNasty said on May 11, 2013 at 11:27 a.m.

Martian Manhunter could have something like an intangibility trait where he couldn't be harmed for a short time allowing for phasing and comes out of it if he attacks or it runs out. I suppose for shape-shifting they would just have to do limited forms, because its not like GL or Sinestro can create any construct either.

Mikw62692 said on May 11, 2013 at 11:32 a.m.

It's a 100% chance he will be in the game at some point..... Lets demand beast boy an red hood

JBADGUY said on May 11, 2013 at 2:39 p.m.

MMH and Black Canary.

tidestick said on May 11, 2013 at 3:38 p.m.
