The New Batman Is Revelaed And It Looks Incredible

So here you go. Zack Snyder released a photo of Ben Affleck in the Batsuit and it is badass. So, once again the internet trolls and naysayers will have to go rip on a different part of this movie. Some suggestions would be the mandate to force Cyborg, who is and was a founding member of the Teen Titans, is in this flick instead of Martian Manhunter. Cyborg is and has always been an incredibly boring character. The New 52 DC version is just the worst. Just give the fans what they want and make the Justice League the big seven and be done with it already.  Knowing DC’s history of racial diversity I am sure he will be made in to the fast talking street kid with a heart of gold and a body of steel or something.

Look at what they did to Wally West. He is black now for the sake of diversity since no one on DCs editorial staff can actually create any new racially diverse characters that are in anyway interesting. (Hint: For some pointers watch Arrow jackasses)  Why couldn’t the new Wally West come from a strong interracial family? Instead he is from a typical broken home and he runs the streets. How original.

Sorry, I forgot this is about  the new Batman. Look at that pretty picture.  -Jeremy

Who would win in a fight between Batman and Superman?  You know, if Batman had some special supply of kryptonite that would make it a fair fight?  Would Batman’s superior tactics and ridiculously specialized gadgetry win out, or would Superman conquer with his abilities to fly and shoot lasers from his eyes?  Injustice: Gods Among Us asks these questions and lets the players decide the answer in battle.

Injustice: Gods Among Us is a new fighting game from NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive.  NetherRealm is run by Ed Boon, one of the creators of Mortal Kombat, and the influences definitely show in Injustice.  The game is available on PS3, Wii U, and Xbox 360; with a free to play version on iOS devices.  This review will be focusing on the PS3 version, but I understand the 360 copy is comparable.

If you are thinking that this sounds familiar, you may have played Midway’s Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe in 2008.  Rest assured, however, Injustice stands apart from the Mortal Kombat games in several ways.  First, the cast is all DC heroes and villains.  The big names are all there: Superman, Batman, The Flash, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Lex Luthor, Catwoman, Sinestro and Joker.  The game also has characters that don’t get the mainstream spotlight treatment, such as Ares, Black Adam, and Killer Frost.
