This weekend, NetherRealm Studios released an official gameplay trailer for Injustice: Gods Among Us’ first DLC character. Lobo appears to be a slow but powerful character with some interesting ranged options. His stage transition/back+3 seems to be a shotgun shot and he can load different types of ammo into his guns to change their properties. He also seems to have a couple command or hit grabs as well.

Lobo is scheduled to release on May 7.

    looks really interesting. it looks like his trait is his shotgun, he even has to load it so i wonder what it will be like.

    also, i hope they reveal a character soon because that leaked list is driving me mad! i bought a season pass and if those characters (zod, batgirl and scorpion) are true i wont be happy.

    • NyuBomber

      Agreed. Scorpion would be fine if the game had more characters, such that it didn’t feel like key DC characters were being left out. But, at this stage, negatory to Scorpion.

      And while I’m sure they could make Zod and Batgirl play differently enough from their respective franchise representatives to be worthwhile, and while Zod has a promotional advantage of being featured in a movie (again…) coming soon, they don’t feel like they add anything on principal.

      Does DC really need another Bat-family rep, especially one that is indisputably in the same gameplay style vein of martial arts + gadgets as Batman and Nightwing? Does it really need another super-powered Kryptonian (Power Girl, Super Girl, Superboy-Prime, etc. also suffer from this issue)? Why not more principally unique characters like Lobo is shaping up to be?

      Just off the top of my head, how about Beast Boy? His trait could switch animal forms (controlling similar to Green Arrow: DD+Trait = Eagle/aerial-based, DB+Trait = Gorilla/power-based, DF+Trait = Tiger/speed-based, something like that). And his super could be a multiple animal combo ending in a T-Rex chomp!

      There’s a library full of attractive ideas and characters they could pull from, it’d be a shame to have to wait until Injustice 2 to see them, while being left with a MK guy, Superman-but-evil-and-kinda-different, and Batman/Nightwing-but-female-and-kinda-different.

        I agree with you 100% especially on the beast boy part. I mean in a way that would mean all the teen titans (minus robin) are here but thats fine due to the variety the titans had. I’m also a big fan of joke characters so it would be nice to see booster gold in this bitch

        • Trollolo You

          Booster Gold a joke character? Are you crazy? He was fighting Doomsday alone at one point D:

        • Luna_Goodguy

          Actually Nightwing was the Robin of that Teen Titans so he’s in there already.

      • AriesWarlock

        Lobo doesn’t really look unique to me, he’s just a big guy who uses a shotgun.

        As for animals, Vixen could do that well.

        • NyuBomber

          Vixen would work, and might even be better to use (well, her or Animal Man, who was teased) since she doesn’t transform into the animals, just takes on their style, meaning less work for the game artists.

      • Langdon Herrick

        I don’t want to be that guy who says “No Manhunter/Dr. Fate/Swamp Thing/Power Girl/Black Manta/Pied Piper/Female Doomsday No Buy!” but I completely agree with you.

        There are at least a couple dozen more interesting characters they could spring for.

      • Maybe Batgirl will turn into Oracle when Joker uses his gun move

        • NyuBomber

          My name is NyuBomber and I approve this message.

      • Pol Subanajouy

        Hey, I could certainly stand to see more magic casters in the game. With how wide open magic and rules lite is usually portrayed in comic books, Netherealms would have a ton of different options for making a play style.

        • NyuBomber

          Sure, magic’s cool! Zatanna, Dr.Fate, Etrigan, The Spectre, Phantom Stranger, Madame Xanadu, Dead Man…

          Like I said, BB was top of my head. Point is, there’s a lot of interesting, unique DC characters that would be compelling from a gameplay standpoint to see implemented, instead of seemingly going the path of incredibly disappointing least resistance that is the rumored list of Batgirl, Zod, and Scorpion.

          • Scott Jason Winship

            Damn Son i never thought of Etrigan! BRING ON THE DEMON!

  • badjab326

    Lobo looks great! Can’t wait to see him on the store!

  • Ryan Harris

    His j.fierce seems to be Alex’s dive. That appeals to me.

  • Beb0p

    Lot better than the shlt Skull Girls is pulling. The whole blood thing is stupid.

  • windsagio

    He’s properly scuzzy, I like that.

  • RomanceHD

    THE MAIN MAN!

  • Chuck Thompson

    still doesn’t seem lobo-ey enough to be lobo?

    • windsagio

      In what way? Rob Zombie biker isn’t enough like lobo?

  • Victor Thammavong

    He’s got a beast Marseilles Roll.

  • Trevor Clarke

    that middle finger was righteous , I could not stop laughing

  • Garrett Jones

    haha DC is a joke Batman vs Superman the game. kill urselves

  • Most hype super in the game? Not quite, but close.

    I’m interested to see what they do with Scorpion in this game personally. Using his hellfire to amp. his damage or apply different properties on his special moves would be pretty sick. Who knows.

    Batgirl is super weak IMO, who the fuck cares about Batgirl? Remember Batman & Robin? Remember how much that sucked ass?

    • Dion Johnson

      you know something is wrong with a character when her 2 most famous roles were starring in a corny 60s show where she got kidnapped each episode and a book where she was shot in the spine.
