Raven and Shazam Mentioned in Preview of OXM’s Injustice: Gods Among Us Hands-On

By on January 19, 2013 at 1:00 pm

And the hits just keep on coming. The latest bit of information regarding the cast of Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios’ upcoming DC Comics fighter, comes from February’s issue of the Official Xbox Magazine UK. According to the preview of their exclusive hands-on with the title, Raven and the previously mentioned Shazam (referred to here as Captain Marvel) will be making appearances alongside more well-known names like Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman.

There’s also an exclusive Injustice: Gods Among Us hands-on. New to Gods Among Us? It’s one of those man-punching games, created by Mortal Kombat bods NetherRealm, and includes the pick of famous faces from DC Comics – Batman, The Joker, Nightwing, Lex Luthor, Bane, Wonder Woman, Catwoman and Superman, together with minor Justice Leaguers like Cyborg, Raven and Captain Marvel. Blood there is none, but punching there is much.

While there’s still no official word as to whether or not these characters will be playable, it’s nice to see that the roster might be a bit more expansive than earlier revelations led us to believe. We’ll be sure to keep you updated as more concrete information becomes available but, until then, feel free to let us know what you think of this latest round of details in the comments section below.

  • Dexterpaddles

    Saw the scan, she looks like a mix between comic book Raven, and cartoon Raven.
    She has very grey skin, but she is not a young teen.

    • Brandon Michael Brunner

      where did you see the scan?

      • Raffospink

        Search for it on YouTube, a few people have uploaded it.

      • Spencer Trilby

        Not sure if she is playable, though.

  • If Raven’s in the game, I’m hoping she’d play kind of like Ermac (Ranged grabs and the like.)

  • Langdon Herrick

    “It’s one of those man-punching games…”

  • UseProtection

     I want to see Starfire. She can just fuck all the male characters into submission.

    • Jackakhan

      Ha! Yeah, Starfire would be awesome! Too bad the the fem character models in this game look so ugly. I don’t get it, they were actually better in MK vs DC and seem to have gone downhill since. Especially the faces (Jade, anyone?).

    • ForteWily

      I will be honest, as much as I like her… I would rather that they AVOID Starfire. Especially considering the controversy around her redesign in DCnU.

  • samirerre

    i hope they will make more femals. with raven we have only 3

    • Dexterpaddles

      Harley, Wonder Woman, Catwoman.

      If Raven is a playable, and not just a story mode cameo, she is 4.
      The fifth is going to be Powergirl.

      That will probably be it for females.

      •  Any evidence for Power Girl, cuz otherwise I don’t see it happening.

        •  Hadn’t thought of that.  If she’s in it, I’ll buy it no matter what.

    • Brandon Michael Brunner

      we would have four… wonder woman, catwoman, harley and possibly raven now 

      • sb

        4 is enuff i hope thats it games are getting to outrageous with the female characters these days BOORRRRRING

        •  Can you please die sometime soon?

          • sb

            How about you just kill yourself

  • Eric Nguyen

    Aww… no Zatanna?

    • Langdon Herrick

       If this was a Capcom game, you know we’d be seeing some Zatanna. Sexy lady? Check. Complex/gimmicky/unique gameplay? Check.

    • Jordan Hoffman

      I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I’ve gone thing for sexy magicians. Raven doesn’t cut the mustard for me.


    Raven? Now I’m interested

  • Aceofspades53

    Geez, how many characters are gonna be in this game?
    Roster level: CvS2

    • sb

      Nope MK9 roster level maybe a few more they say

    • Raffospink

      It’s gonna have 28 on-disc apparently.

  • Aceofspades53

    I should actually say Tekken Tag 2, shouldn’t I?

  • godfist314

    I can’t even keep track. I don’t know too many DC Comics characters so this game is going to be hella new to me. I hope someone makes a video introducing the lesser known DC superheroes.

    • Andy Les Pahl

      Raven was on Teen Titans as well as Cyborg. Google Teen Titans episode one for a bit better understanding of at least those 2 upcoming memebers

  • James Reilly

    Throw in StarFire now. She can be your standard Fly/UnFly projectile character plus we get another Female character out of it

    • Raffospink

      Starfire would be such a badass keepaway character.

    • Andy Les Pahl

      Starbolts, starbolts, soulfist, soulfist,,,

  • GrimeDoc

    I don’t care how Raven plays. Day 1 main.

  • Snow Loss

    Boon needs to hurry the fuck up and unleash some character videos and some high level gameplay. 
    Also dream roster (given a limited cast and confirmed characters:
    Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash, Green Arrow, Green Lantern, Nightwing, Cyborg, Joker, Harley Quinn, Bane, Solomon Grundy, Lex Luthor, Deathstroke, Animal Man, Static Shock, Aquaman, Shazam/ Cpt. Marvel, Black Adam, Red Tornado, Terra, Raven, Bleez (or Dex-Starr), Animal Man, Hawkgirl, Sinestro
    Unlikely that even half of those end list wishes will come true, but I can hope.

    • SolarShift

      Red Tornado….. He needs better representation.

    • Travis Lynn

      Two Animal Mans? Sure he is cool but two?

  • Chaan Niccaples Thomas

    Put in Oracle so I can ram some ankles with wheelchairs. ALL LOW ATTACKS!

  • Pol Subanajouy


    • as Alfred responded I cant believe that a mom can get paid $7411 in one month on the cnetwork.

      • Rahavic

        u should donate some of this scam to Injustice for the 8th game at EVO this year XD

    • …..—–goo.gl/BRYny    (Click on Home)   

  • Richard N

    Holy Crap, I know I post this on every Injustice related video but;


  • wBENDERw


  • NyuBomber

    When’s DC?

  • Eric Pacheco

    RAVEN, YES !!!!!!

  • 100ctual

    Game should be called Batman and friends not Injustice lol.

  • I still want cheetah, since the males are getting their sparing partners, cheetah vs. wonder woman would be cool.
