First in-game look at Injustice 2's Darkseid, character intro and super revealed

We have known about the inclusion of Darkseid in Injustice 2 for some time now. The all-powerful Superman villain will be available as a pre-order bonus for those who purchase any version of the game.


If you're tired of seeing that same clip of Darkseid's face emerging from the darkness at the end of official Injustice 2 trailers, today you're in luck. Footage of the character's super and one of his pre-fight intros has surfaced online.

The intro shows Darkseid going up against Harley Quinn. We see that he is accompanied by two minions who make way for him as he walks up.

You can see a quick GIF of the intro below.

Since we don't know anything about how Darkseid will actually play in-game, fans are taking this intro as a potential hint at his playstyle. The two minions may suggest the ability to use them in battle, much like Gargos does in Killer Instinct Season 3.

These intros can definitely be indicative of what the character can do in battle, and we don't have to extend far for an example. In one of Harley's introductions, she enters the ring with her hyenas at her side, which we know are a part of her actual tool set.

Not only do we see his intro, but Darkseid's super move has also been unveiled. You can check out both below.

Darkseid is the lord of Apokolips, and with superhuman strength, speed, immortality, the ability to fire omega energy beams, teleport, use telekinesis, and a slew of other powers in his arsenal, he will undoubtedly be an interesting character to behold.

Injustice 2 hits stores on May 16th for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
