At SDCC Injustice 2 received two more characters into the mix with a classic character and a new one just for Injustice 2 fitting into the story
Given that SDCC is all about the comic books, or at least should be, it makes it the fitting place to see two more characters added to the roster of Injustice 2. So far we’ve only seen six characters make the leap from NetherRealm Studios‘ last title to the new one with about half of them being completely new to the franchise altogether. Now it looks like they are digging into the Warner Bros. and DC Comics vault to pull out even more amazingness for Injustice 2 as we now have Wonder Woman again for the 75th anniversary and a fan requested Blue Beetle. So one more old and one more new here.
You can see both of the characters in action just a bit lower down but it looks like Injustice 2‘s Wonder Woman is getting so great changes while Blue Beetle is just giving us what we want. In terms of Wonder Woman, we no longer have to choose between her weapons and stances as she will have access to everything at all times. She will be able to swap between her lasso, shield, bracers, and sword on the fly and not require anything special. Here new special addition is that she can call down the aid of the Greek Gods to give herself some boosts during the match. An example would be Hermes giving here extra speed and an air dash. Sadly, that was the only one listed at SDCC.
Injustice 2 — Wonder Woman And Blue Beetle
Blue Beetle here looks like just another character for Injustice 2 and as we have nothing to compare to before it looks like he is just getting his comic abilities up and ready for the fight as NetherRealm Studios wants. In terms of Blue Beetle’s special ability, he can turn his arms into blades to deal some extra damage during the fight. Of course the trade off to make him not “overpowered” in Injustice 2 is that he loses the chance to fire off projectiles. So it looks like he now has a separate stance while Wonder Woman loses it. I guess it makes some kind of sense but we’ll have to see.
How do you feel about the two new characters for Injustice 2 that we have here? Do you think it is fitting that Wonder Woman gets her full assortment of weapons at all times? Do you think that Blue Beetle is going to be weakened too much given that he does get full access? Let us know and who else you want to see show up for to the fight down in the comments. For all things Injustice 2 be sure to stay right here as we will have it all as it comes. I know there are still a lot of characters to be shown and only so much time to do it.
