Static Shock, or simply "Static" as he's known now, was close to being a playable character on the Injustice 2 launch roster.


Character designer on Injustice 2, Marco Nelor, recently shared finished concept art for the electrifying fighter over on Instagram. The artist notes that the character's overall look was finished, but he ultimately got cut from the game.

"So sad about this one," he wrote on Instagram. "He was all cleaned up and ready to go, but unfortunately Static didn't make the cut for #injustice2 ... damn. I had him all worked out too. Oh well. Enjoy!"

Though Static never found himself playable in the console version of Injustice: Gods Among Us, he was included in the mobile version's cast. His move set featured projectiles, attacks with a lightning staff, and electrical bursts.

As it stands right now, Injustice 2 has 9 DLC characters on their way. Six of these fighters remain unrevealed, so we may see Static join the fray eventually.

However, at this time there is no confirmation of his inclusion.
