Today is a good day for fans of the Injustice: Gods Among Us video and it’s upcoming sequel. Not only did we get the trailer for the Injustice 2 trailer (it looks unreal by the way) we also get a glimpse at the games main villain.
The trailer opens with a monologue from a mystery character who evaluates some of DC Comics favorites, like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman, as well as checking out newcomers such as Supergirl, Robin (Damien Wayne), and also teases villains as well. The mystery narrator is revealed to be Brainiac, the super-AI who has a thing for collection civilizations to add to his collection.
If we go by the trailer, Brainiac wants to conquer earth and add it to his collection, in order to do this though he plans to thin out the number of superheroes that may stand in his way. This seems to be the premise for our heroes to do battle with one another again. It also seems as though Brainic has Supergirl under his control and is using her to thin out the herd.
The roster of characters in the game is stacked to, the game will include, Batman, Blue Beetle, The Flash, Harley Quinn, Superman, Supergirl, Wonder Woman, Deadshot, Gorilla Grodd, Aquaman, Atrocutis, Bane, Damien Wayne/Robin, Joker, Brainaic, Darkseid and many more.
Injustice 2 continues the story of a world where Superman snapped, and used his powers to become not just judge, jury, and executioner over the villains of the DCU, but eventually a dictator, ruling over the world with his fist of steel. After his defeat and imprisonment, the world is trying to pick up the pieces, but won’t have much time to rest as Brainiac hits the scene. Injustice 2 hits consoles May 16, 201
