RUMOR: Doomsday Revealed on Injustice: Gods Among Us Arcade Stick

By on January 16, 2013 at 7:48 am

Test Your Might and Zmoke have noticed something interesting about the recently revealed Injustice: Gods Among Us Battle Edition arcade stick. Hiding out at the top of the art behind the arcade stick itself is a picture of Doomsday, one of Superman’s greatest rivals and one of the few characters to have ever succeeded in killing the Man of Steel. Doomsday hasn’t officially been revealed yet, but it seems strange for a character to have his mug plastered on a game’s official arcade stick without being in the roster somehow.

    WE WANT DOOMSLAYER!!!!!!!!!!

  • I think you mean “one of the few characters to have ever succeeded in forcing the Man of Steel to take a SUPER HEALING NAP”

    Still, Doomsday is really, really cool!

  • NyuBomber

     When’s DC?

  • I’m expecting Darkseid I’d be very surprised if he didnt make it in, but someone I’m hoping for is Black Canary. Asking for Two-Face now is a long shot considering how many Bat-Characters are in already, if we had more people would probably Facepalm even though his villains are better than most other series villains are. Metallo would also be interesting or Mongol or idk im not sure who to expect anymore

    • I do not want to have Harvey fucking Dent fighting Doomsday.  

      I just want Matter Eater Lad in this game, and Mary Marvel

      • Harvey Dent cant Fight Doomsday but Harley Quinn can? Reaaaaaally?

        • Razberryclownsac

          Of course he cant. Harvey has guns and a coin, Harley has pies.

    When’s Marvel? 😛

      I see the coming storm.

      Stream Monster Civil War.

    Someone was asking the full story of doomsday/supermans death over on eventhubs and someone posted this video which is probably the most epic comic book storyline description ever.

    Willing to give this game a shot if I can play it online without having to pay a separate fee.  Not buying it until I try it for myself.

    • PJ

      What fighting game have you ever played before that you had to pay a separate fee to play online with? (Besides buying it used and needing an online code cuz you were too cheap to buy it new in the first place)

      • Jason_Trag

        I think and tekken injustice are the only games worth buying new and/or buying at all in this new gen of fighters. But, I’m not paying 70 + tax, damn near 80 bucks for any video game. To cheap? Try to high. Not in this economy.

        • Johnny Smith

          I would agree with you normally, but the chance to show up to my next tournament with a Superman themed arcade stick… Priceless. I really don’t care how the game turns out. I’m willing to pop $149.99 US + Tax for the stick… Even if it doesn’t have quality parts I have replacements at home.

  • Rahavic

    Whats the rumor? He’s on the stick he’s in the game. Unless they photoshopped him in there I mean there isn’t much to theorize about here.

    • NyuBomber

      The kerfluffle, if you will, is about if he’ll be playable or boss-only, as NRS is wont to do. Case can be made both ways.
