Supergirl is looking really strong in SonicFox's hands with these frame traps, 50/50s, corner combos, shimmies, and relentless pressure

Despite the lack of a training room in the Injustice 2 beta, the professionals of Netherrealm Studios games have obviously been in the lab with the four characters that are available during the beta. Not surprisingly, SonicFox has been hard at work discovering what kind of tools are available to Supergirl.


LiangHuBBB has uploaded a video on YouTube showcasing some of SonicFox's offensive applications with Supergirl's tools from the Injustice 2 beta. This footage was taken from Reo's stream, which Reo himself has also uploaded nearly two hours worth on his own YouTube channel.

SonicFox has already learned deadly frame traps, 50/50s, corner combos, and shimmy setups with Supergirl as evident by the videos. Based on SonicFox's play style from other NRS games, Supergirl definitely looks like a "SonicFox character" due to the aggressive pressure that Supergirl can unleash.
This really does come down to "waiting your turn" to attack. While Supergirl's corner pressure and mixups are insanely good, her damage output does appear to be a little bit lower than the other three characters in order to balance her out.

Being that this is a beta though, everything is subject to change. We'll have to see what stays and what changes go into the final build of the game.

Based on my own experience of fighting Supergirl online, I can say that there are ways to beat this with the right reads. In my opinion, it may be a bit too early to be asking for nerfs right now despite the outcry.
