NetherRealm Studios’ Ed Boon has been quite busy hinting at possible additions to their upcoming Injustice 2, via Twitter polls. Previously he hinted at possible guest characters, including some from Mortal Kombat. Now he’s back with another poll that’s somewhat closer to home.

Ed Boon’s latest Twitter poll is asking if fans wanted to see characters from Watchmen, the groundbreaking graphic novel from Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons, in Injustice 2.

For those not familiar with it, this classic graphic novel was one of the works that helped usher in the so-called “Dark Age” of comic books, elevating superhero comics through its deconstruction of the medium. More importatly however, the characters from this book were recently added into the mainline DC comics continuity as part of their ongoing DC Rebirth initiative.

If a Watchmen character does make it in, it will be only the second time characters from the book will make it into a video game (the first being the Watchmen: the End is Nigh tie-in game to the 2009 Zack Snyder film).
