If it's going to be as boring as Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe was, then no thanks. I don't care about the PG rating and no blood thing, It's just that it's not going to live up to the hype.
Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman drop the gloves in Gods Among Us for 360, PS3, and Wii U; Mortal Kombat shop NetherRealm Studios handling development.
The superheroes and villains of DC Comics are returning to the world of fighting games, as Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment today announced Injustice: Gods Among Us for the Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, and Wii U.
Set for release in 2013, the game will feature a pantheon of DC staples, with the currently revealed roster already including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Harley Quinn, and Solomon Grundy. The storyline will involve the traditional breakdown of DC's good guys and bad guys being blurred, as the initial trailer poses the question, "What if our greatest heroes became our greatest threat?"
Development on Injustice is being handled by NetherRealm Studios, best known as the outfit behind the Mortal Kombat series of games. The team at NetherRealm already has experience adapting the DC universe to fighting games, having created Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe in November 2008, just months before then-publisher Midway went bankrupt and was eventually acquired by WBIE.

I really don't understand all the grudge for Mk Vs Dc. It was not exceptional, that is true, nonetheless it was a very fun game to play, a cool crossover (of what happen to be two of my favorite worlds of fighting games and comics) and also, a breath of fresh air in the stale state that the MK franchise was getting into... And of course, preparing a path for the great fighting game that was to come, MK9, that would bring MK to 2D again and once again, setting rules in the fighting games genre. All in all, i'm all in for this! This game has everything to rock and I can't wait as I'm either a fan of Boon and also DC Comics ever since (seems like now) forever. Please just don't make flash as obnoxious as he was in Mk Vs DC, he almost made me wanna take anger-management sessions. :p
Really hope they put Black Adam in it!Here's hoping they at least include fatalities this time... MK Vs DC could've been a really great game. Hopefully they listened to people's complaints with that game and will address all those issues in this one!
This looks promising. Although I would still love to see DC vs. Capcom. Or, better yet, Marvel vs. DC designed by Capcom
I really hope the gameplay resembles that of mk 9, but at the same time differs enough to make it unique, and not like mk 9 with dc characters.
Fully rendered cut scenes always look amazing. but I will hold out for some actual gameplay footage. Nice to see they are wearing the new reboot 52 costumes. I agreed that we have to have a large number of DC characters to make this game worth getting.And Not just Justice League Members but other DC universe characters Supergirl, Lobo Bane Starfire, Hawkman, Dr Fate, Cyborg, etc... Especially if you want to outdo Marvel v. Capcom 3 ultimate

"Jswiss I love this company, I'm very confident that they'll be able to pull this off. And I can't wait to get my hands on story mode. MK9 has set the standard on how story mode in fighting games should be." Yeah! right! if u only wanna play with one side not both, thanks to Netherrealms crappy storymode everybody wants to do something similar, but terribly failed(SCV).
The game looks promising, and worth checking out when complete. As for storylines in fighting games...well, that died many years ago. It's the gameplay that I crave.

@Jswiss I agree I loved the way story mode was set up in MK9.If they do this right, Im willing to look the other way on "MK vs DC Universe"
PLEASE make the areas big enough to fly around in and dont skimp on the characters!! Have Powergirl and Supergirl in it to play and i promise to pick it up on day one
I will love another dc fighting game, not counting the dc vs mk I remember the last dc fighting game called Justice League Task Force for the snes. I know the game was bad in these days standards since it was a so so fighting game, but still had many good memories of Darkseid pwning me. So hopefully after 17 years of the last dc fighting game, they bring us some good memories like I had in JLA task force.
im glad to see the mortal kombat guys didnt put wonder woman in a stripperiffic outfit, though ill bet one of her alternate costumes is.
im cautiously optimistic about this, given what happened when they tried to make a DC fighter before. a lot of the outfits look overdesigned, but whatever, i still really want to hear more about this. it cant be like mortal kombat, because the only thing holding that game together is gratuitous violence; the simple mechanics are more a means to inflict cathartic gore than anything. trying to do mortal kombat without that was the mistake made in MK vs DCU, so i hope they have something better planned.
Gods Among us. yet in the Dc universe there are actual Greek gods. so by this Superman and all heroes are not Gods
So they decided mixing DC with MK made no sense so they're just handling DC.
This is genius, I fully support this. Hopefully it's good.
I really really wish that exhibition-type matches a-la Street Fighter IV will be available. It's the one damn thing MK is always missing from the start of the series.
As someone who has endured a lot of nerd whining online, I hope we can beat up their king Superboy Prime in this game.
Hopefully when they say storyline they mean more than just an incomprehensible opening movie with all the characters doing random stuff, and equally mysterious 10 second ending cinemas after beating the final guy.
the latest MK game had a better story than pretty much any other fighting game ever, and while that probably isnt saying much, at least we know they will make a real, dedicated effort to the storymode.
@onewithtoenail7 I'd be happy with something similar to the MK story mode. Especially with the hilarious arguments that tend to stem from all those super hero egos. :)
This looks great. I love DC comics so I will for sure be getting this. I wonder which route they will go though as Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman look like the new 52 counter parts so will DC make all the characters look like the new 52? By the time this game comes out the new 52 will have been around for at least a year.
@redluigi11 Don't mean to be a smart butt, but there was a actual other dc fighting game. Back in the snes days Justice League Task Force. So many fond memories of that game, I am happy to see another dc fighting game.
the injustice league :D i remember seeing this alternate universe in an episode of justice league unlimited.
